Nurture and Grow

You are a keeper of the planet.  You are adept in the use of your creative/spiritual energy. You have gained access to power. Your challenge is to handle it humbly, considering the good of all. Use your power to acknowledge the Source, to herald the dawn of a peaceful age, to uplift those who cannot yet see. Use your power to heal, to love unconditionally. This is the prime of your energy. You must not deny self, but merely find the right channel for expanding.

Pay attention to ‘life’ all around you … those walking, those flying, those crawling. Watch their seasons, and learn from their behaviors. Honor them, as well as yourself. Give yourself time alone with the quiet of the wind. Blend with the waters and the foods the earth provides, be one with this amazing life. Nurture the young ones, for they will one day be nurturers of you. Discern between those playing falsely, and those living in truth. Be keen on the energetic output of self and others. Balance the forces that swim in your arena, get to know them, move them about, settle them when they uprise. Respect the ancestors, the elders, for they have already walked this journey and have much to teach. Be willing to listen.

Truth Is Simple

I think you know … despite all that may have been said, or the tantrums experienced, Love, Joy, creating Peace, Sharing and Caring are where true strength is. Everything else, ALL else, is an attempt to thwart it.

We can look around us and see how the emotions of people are being manipulated by circumstances they have no control over. The body and mind, being mostly water, are affected in an intense way by all the currents of electromagnetic waves being sent here and there, moving through the human body and mind.

The body is one big antenna. It picks up on signals we cannot audibly hear, and reacts. Unless we are aware of the subtle energies and how they move through us and their affect on the emotional charge we hold in our mind, we will be subject to them. When aware of these things, we can recognize them when they occur and head them off at the pass, so to speak.

When we begin to realize and recognize these manipulations we can better look around us and see them in the reactions we experience in others when they interact with us. These invisible signals are combined with dogma, which instills a fear in people (if you don’t believe this, or if you dress like that, etc. etc. you’ll be punished eternally sort of stuff).

When fear is sufficiently implanted in the minds of people, then this fear can be manipulated using these invisible signals … see? Breaking free from fear is difficult, shedding the rules and regulations mankind has imposed on the spirits of their fellow brothers and sisters is hard.

Joy and Peace are the desire of ‘most’ people. Some have gone too far into darkness, and we can only hope they’ll find their way out of it. The main focus ought to be on breaking free from the chains of imposed fear, and then creating that which we wish to see in this world … Joy, Peace, Sharing, Caring.

Suspicion and Fear, Anger and Jealousy ~ These thing inhibit proper formation of Love and Compassion. There are those on the ‘job’, their duty is to unbalance Love and instill Fear. The few who do these things desire to see a shrinking of Love given in the world … and through fear and paranoia they have been succeeding.

But we see this now, don’t we? To hole up and not give of ourselves is to essentially cut off from every possibility of creating good. If we are not open to the possibility of pain, then we are also closed off from the possibility of Love … this reality we all wish more of. We CAN have it, but it requires courage, and willingness to bear the attack of the those who wish to kill love.

We are warriors of Love, and although it may appear we are losing the battle, it is quite the contrary. In fact, I like to think the dark deeds of those destroyers are back-firing on them, for they have opened the eyes of many to the stark contrast between shadow and light, making it more apparent what has been going on.

Choice ~ It is where your power resides. You have everything within you needed to win this battle.  This fight isn’t with swords or guns or fists … it is of spirit. Although this is what the bible tells us, that story is filled with half truths, just enough truth to confuse. Rather than rely on the book alone, trust in your personal connection to Spirit, to the Divine which desires to have union with each and every Soul … with You.

Trust the inner messages coming your way, do not doubt. Other people have no authority over this relationship each individual holds with Creator. Every person has a unique and personal connection to that Spark which wants the very best for humanity, for ALL life. If the inner intuitive messages are of Love and Kindness, trust them … if they are dark and desire you to harm anything, anyone, or yourself, they are of the parasitic invader, who is longing for destruction.

This is a serious matter, and there are those who have cultivated your passivity by asking you to give up your authority, handing it to someone else who will save you, and while ‘some’ of what they say may be true, the One who longs to save you also needs His warriors … and that is You … and Me … WE.

Reseeding The Earth

Published August 23, 2018 by tindertender

Half notes and serenades.
Cacophony.

Aaahhh yes, youth was mine. Indeed it was all of ours. What did we do with it? Did we strive to create something positive and beneficial to life, or did we spend time and effort tearing it down, destroying it?

Personally, it was all too easy to follow in the foot steps of those who came before, who promoted a lack of empathy, who’s actions birthed a selfish thought and action. Yet once older, looking back, it is easy to see.

The question now is, what will we do to break these habits which have plagued humanity for generations? Certainly in life there have been deeds done which do not instill a sense of pride. There may be residue of shame, guilt, and sorrow from the way things played out. Those things are from then … and have no say in what will be.

Do not let yesterday determine your tomorrows. Do not let those who throw yesterday in your face determine your tomorrows. Tomorrow is for you to decide. Will you make the best of it? Are you ready to show your capabilities of creating good, equal to or greater than any of the negative which may have been in your life?

Circumstances will always prove to bring us the most beneficial opportunities. Often, we are forced to dig deep within and find the positive, bringing it forth in order to create peace in a chaotic world. This is a test, a stretching of ability, and while it may not be the most pleasant experience, it will enable your ability far beyond that which comfort level is able to promote in you.

When thinking of the past take only those things which are beneficial into the future. Lessons learned, skills honed, patience developed. All negatives of shame, guilt, jealousy, victim-hood, anger and hatred … leave behind, where they belong. They’ve served their purpose for those times.

Tomorrow is a clean slate, indeed, it is quite early today, so I will include this day as well in that statement. Wake, and begin the day with intention. Determine what today will be, and then act on that thought, that idea, that intent.

Bring compassion with you wherever you may go. Remember your sufferings, but only so that you are able to recognize them in others you encounter. You know how it is, act accordingly. Bring to them what you needed when it was you in their shoes.

You are capable of healing this land.
It is you alone who can bring forth what gifts you came with.
Remember them, what they are, and do what you came to do.

The circumstances we were born into did a great job of covering our abilities, drowning us in the worlds suffering. Shed what it has given you and build the new, the new you committed to before birth, the new you know you are able to gift this world, and all life.

Reseeding the earth is not just about birthing a new body, but about bringing forward and sharing new ideas and ways of living. Imagine the change you wish to see, and let it be … and so it is.

It Was One Heck Of A Ride!!!

Published August 19, 2018 by tindertender

Jam packed full of events and sights to see, tensions ran high amid all the chaotic adventures.

The tour of the gardens was spectacular, the whale watching had me on the edge of my seat and offered up a face and mouth full of salt water. I had no idea it was that salty, although I don’t think I ever really thought of it before. The city of Victoria BC is beautiful, and clean, with so many shops and a long, long history!

Below are a few of the pics from my trip …

Gardens ~

Whales ~

Sea Lions ~

The Govenor’s House was amazing, the rooms … most of them … were ‘no entry’ but what we were able to see was incredible! Ahhh, Queen Victoria … if the DNA test was accurate, I am to believe she is my distant relative!!

Once back in Seattle the tour of the new glass floors in the Space Needle was interesting.

The Chilulay Glass Museum was phenomenal …

… and the Phantom of the Opera made me cry.

This vacation was chuck full of so much, the nerve body was ramped up with energies and the patience wore thin. It will take me a week to absorb all the details. What a whirl-wind! I am grateful my friend and I can still say we are … friends … even when the inner Dragon and Tiger shows up!!

It is time to get back to routine.

As I swam in a sea of a go-go-go schedule, chaotic emotion, and frustration which challenged the work I’ve been doing, I’ve neglected my inner sanctuary … for four days.

There is much to be learned from this experience. My inner fortress needs built up … weak spots have been observed, and a fresh approach to the work remaining is at hand.

SO!! Here we go again.

Release And Flow

Sometimes a need to control every outcome can cause a whirlpool instead of forward movement. Loosening ones grip and surrendering to the flow in trust, will bring one exactly where they need to be.

Resisting the urge to put distance between self and others can be a challenge. Asking for help or support, or giving help and support without hesitation or question may not have been something practiced in the past. This needs attention, for a burden shared is a burden halved. Now is not the time to withdraw and be alone, nor is it time to leave another in need.

Be aware. Be caring. Be compassionate. Reach out and be a friend and allow others to be a friend to you.

Let Two Be One

An action which can marry soul and shadow so that wholeness and balance may be achieved is this: “Share your thoughts”.

You have hopes and dreams and goals and ideas. Do not guard your ideas jealously nor keep them locked within for fear that another may steal them, or offer ridicule instead of support. It is time to share your vision. Speak of your dreams to others. Connect with those who share your goals and hopes for they may be able to help you realize your dreams sooner.

You will not achieve the outcome you desire if you are unwilling to act upon your intentions. It is not as simple as wanting something to happen, or believing that it will happen. You have to make it happen, and to make it happen requires that you be willing and ready to do whatever is necessary. For everything you desire, you must be willing to give of yourself in return.

Hidden Messages Of Mind

Published March 14, 2018 by tindertender

subconsciousIt never ceases to amaze me how my defenses stir, even when there is really no reason for it. First defense, then embarrassment and a desire to close the self down to certain situations. As I notice these energies in my mind and body  I find that there is a shift, quickly from one to the other, even to something like shame … which is weird.

When intention to share stems from a beautiful and loving space of the heart and finds itself faced with different formats … I hesitate to call it rules and regulations … but different structures, a feeling of not belonging, of being out of place, of separateness arises, even when the differences are subtle.

Here I thought I was doing quite well, yet this experience teaches me that in order to move forward I must allow myself to be exposed, and be open to learning new things without judgement. It is true, we are our own worst critic (although some would deny this). I am happy these emotions have shown themselves, for this allows me to further my personal work.

Remaining open can be quite difficult when the instinct is to shut down, turn tail and run. It is really a very interesting thing that is happening in my mind, so I’ll observe it and work with it and see where it leads.

Dawn Of A New Day

Published January 20, 2018 by tindertender

light-shining-dark-abstract-background-37706186Light shines in a darkened room, with it comes soft sounds of music. A hum sounds out as water is purified. My mind slips into forested trails where birds sing and critters roam.

Love longed for, near, yet far. A wall of glass, and invisible barrier, separates two … and more. An ache makes itself known, not sharing cause.

Direction for today is yet to be determined, choices presented are many. Massage sounds nice and so does a mineral bath, but what tugs at my heart strings is a stroll through the forest. This is where I will begin.
