Counting Blessings, Pondering Life

Published January 15, 2019 by tindertender

Hanging out in candle and fire light while my elderberry syrup simmers. The soft glow of this type of light soothes my senses. The crackle of the fire 🔥 is like music to my ears. One of my candles has that wooden wick which makes noise.

Fresh brewed elderberry syrup with reishi mushroom, chaga mushroom, ginger, cayenne (hot!) organic cane sugar (ran out of honey), cloves, and a couple other things. It’s tasty! I’m glad for the healing properties of the cayenne, also because it makes it a little less tempting to chug it … haha.

As this evening winds down, I consider the blessings this day has offered. I am old enough, and experienced enough, to know that no-thing remains the same, ever. All circumstances shift and evolve, morphing into the next experience. I’ve also learned that whatever the down swing, will also be the equal up swing … all circumstances have equalizing poles, just as the South Pole has the North Pole.

As a younger person I noted that things could get real crappy, real fast. It could break a person if they weren’t able to weather the storm, but should they be able to withstand whatever it is … or was … they’ll eventually experience the up swing of that circumstance. I imagine that if not in this life, then in the after life, or the next physical incarnation … but perhaps life in general, this, the next, and so on are all full of this pendulum swing. Perhaps it is our sacred work to reach balance in this experience, and in all experiences.

Do you suppose the pendulum will someday cease to swing? If it does … what then? Will we finally have peace on earth?

A New Dawn, Bringing New Opportunity

Published January 6, 2019 by tindertender

We have reached the point of dawn … new beginnings and new opportunities, despite what has come before. This fresh start brings the chance to create whatever kind of experience we desire. This is a time of renewal. It will be difficult to tell where the old ends, and the new begins. Release any self-imposed constraints, or resistance to the truth that you know.

Many are very passionate, perhaps even a bit volatile in their pursuit of whatever their goal is. There will be unexpected changes, sometimes quite sudden or dramatic, occurring in ways that many will have no control over. They may shake up the very foundations which people think of as their security. They may even cause many to reevaluate the direction of their life, question their relationships, and the work they’ve chosen. Life knows what it is doing in the midst of these storms of change. It’s about finding trust in that.

Life flows, much like a river. It does not work to force or fight this compelling movement. Resistance will hamper the ability to make sound choices. “Going with the flow” is essential. Breathe, relax, and you will know what to do.

It is time to take respite from the usual environment you find yourself in. Illusion (or delusion) begins to manifest in surroundings which have become too familiar. What is seen as ‘safe’ could be a false sense of security. Break through beliefs that may have constricted you in any way from connecting to the ‘true you’. Take the opportunity to transcend old thought patterns, which will open you to different worlds and perspectives.

Let your inner radiance shine forth, focus on appreciating everything you have that is good and right. Do something physically active to stimulate your inner being. Dance. Sing. Do not let any negative thoughts or habits stop you. During this cycle your capacity to love is being greatly amplified. In one of those supreme ironies of life, the more love you give, the more returns to you. It starts by letting the ‘true you’ be expressed into the world. Show your love.

Power Of Growth and Expansion

Published January 4, 2019 by tindertender

I might change my mind. I can do that. I am capable of, able, willing and loving to do that!

For awhile I thought I’d watch a movie, it’s Friday after all. Then I remembered I’m not real fond of the ‘programming’ … the shows, or the messages, so I built a nice cozy fire in the fireplace instead. It is crackling, and beautiful to my senses.

Sometimes I’ll make a plan, drive to where it leads me and change my plan just then, before even exiting my vehicle, driving away and doing something entirely different.

I am sad the hear there are those in this world who think someone else should “Pay the Penalty”. I think to myself, penalty for what? Isn’t it apparent that humanity has been paying a penalty for decades, even centuries? Heck, this penalty paying business may have started at the beginning of our life story … just as some claim it did.

Who to blame? The women? The ones who give birth to every single human being on this earth? No … there is a hatred for humanity which knows no borders and has no barriers … in this world or beyond. It is not gender specific, although one gender seems to be more pliable. Unfortunately this thing which has such hatred is also very good at manipulating angry, self-righteous, prideful minds … these are they who are most easily fueled, and led in some sort of action which harms others.

Humanity as a whole can bend and be formed by this ‘force’, or it can be aware of it and the tactics used … how these tactics feel when being applied, and how to stop the manipulation in its tracks.

Many good people worship Diety, by many different names. They claim there are rules and stipulations to coincide with these prayerful offerings … but these are made by humans … rules passed down generation after generation. At some point progression is needed if anything is to become improved upon.

This is true with any invention … say, the lawn mower, or egg beater, or tableware, or any number of things! As any device can be improved upon, so can very old ideals. Mind you, there are those things that should never be altered (glassware vs plastic) … but when old ideals segregate and harm any other life form then it should be visited, and transformed.

It really isn’t difficult to honor each other, especially when there is no one seeking to harm anyone. There will always be (seemingly) those ones who so desperately want to horde that which is good. My hope is for a quick, relatively painless transition.

Gaining control of personal thoughts and patterns is key to retaining solid connection with free will. Angry? Transmute that energy to love, or at least kindness. Are you ready to determine what kind of emotion you will allow to dwell in your body and mind and life? This choice is no easy task, it requires conscious, constant effort. This journey of controlling self is one of the most difficult.

Too often people put all of their effort into controlling the actions of others. They think if so and so, or this gender, or that group only did what they wanted them to do, or did not do what they did not want them to do, then they would be happy … satisfied. Yet, this is never the case, for no one can control the rest of the population. Sure, there are progressions made, but at some point, inevitably, there will be rejection of the imposing will and a practicing of the people’s own will … as it should be.

As in all things that are ever spoken or written by myself, I reserve the right to modify every single one of them. Like I said, I love to change my mind … utilizing the power of growth and expansion.

“Commit to being a hunter of excellence in yourself … You must master it and thereby transform; know that you cannot transform that which you have not experienced …”

The Big Question

Published January 2, 2019 by tindertender

“What do I really want?”

I actually DO want a world where everyone has ‘enough’, where everyone works together for the benefit of the whole. I would like to see all people have a comfortable dwelling to come home to after a long day of work, contributing to the success of their families, and all other participants in this effort.

I want a world in which no one takes the easy route, by forcing others to give them what they’ve worked for. I would like equal work leading to equal shares. I want to see those who ‘talk’ for a living do more than impress us with their vocabulary.

I want to see an end of theft, both in the illegal format, and theft in the higher ranks, which has been legalized through ‘loop holes’ in the justice system. I want equality for all in this justice system, not one in which certain members of society get a free pass because of who they are related to, who they know, or who they can buy off.

Mostly, I want a world in which there is no need for fear, or defense, or war. I want a world where the only struggles are that which must be done to produce good foods, or supply clean waters to the home, or make wonderful and beautiful cloth, or something of that nature … where all who eat and dress, partake in what needs be done to produce it.

I want to see a world where money is outdated, where people barter with each other for goods, and where every contribution is honored and the contributor respected, for whatever it is they contribute (being honest, and not harmful to anyone, including themselves.)

I’ve been told so many times that this world will never change. I’ve been told people will always be selfish, and cruel. I’ve been told that peace is not possible.

I have fallen into the trap of this mind set. I have become defensive, latching onto what I perceive as mine, and trying desperately to protect it all from theft and harm. Yet inside my mind and heart I know that nothing can be owned, not even this life, for in a heartbeat it can be taken … ended with a flick of the wrist.

I recognize these defensive behaviors and mind sets to be destructive. Unfortunately once something is said, it cannot be unsaid. Once certain words are uttered, a persons whole character can become tainted, and there is no going back. Often, people who thought they knew you, will change their minds when you have a brief spout of this soul shrinking fear and close off. They will leave, never looking back, telling whoever they come across about your horrible nature. Not considering the many years prior of being with them, talking with them, sharing the heart with them.

I want a world where people will take into account all circumstances, all experiences, and track records. I also want a world where a person falling into the pit of demise is known to be strong enough to climb out of the hole, and assistance is given when they are ready to start the journey.

It is sad, but this bruising of the spirit which all people have experienced has produced triggers within the mind. Once a trigger is flipped, it is difficult to shut it down, especially if one is not aware they even have triggers.

I want a world which lacks selfishness. I want a world in which people do what is right, just for the sake of doing it. Where people help each other without need for repayment, knowing they will receive anyway, when it comes back around. I want a world in which love is the greatest motivator of all, not lust, but an innocent, all encompassing love which does not necessarily need to be physical.

I want an end to violence. I want animals to stop being bred for food. I want all people to learn the art of growing organic, and creating their own medicines, to use and to share, to barter with if need be. There are too many things we could do differently which would bring this about.

Namely … I want a release of worldly greed and need for power, which is where all selfishness arises.

Let all people recognize themselves in every person. May empathy be the new way of interacting, and decision making. May the love of self, and personal need, be treated as a gift from another, and may all people gift it right back to everyone they meet.

Yes, some say peace is not possible … I say, it is they who have no part in its creation.

Let forgiveness reign, for self … and then bit by bit, act by act, person by person, for the world. I believe in the absolute possibility of abundance for all, when all work together to ensure its development.

Stubborn Thought Forms

Published December 31, 2018 by tindertender

How big is you thinking? How small is your thinking? Where is your thinking coming from? What are you thinking?

Man was created so strong! We can make the world good! Set your heart. Let’s put our hearts together. When we’re one, we are not afraid.

Stubborn says, “I am not afraid.”

Stubborn also knows what it feels like opening the heart, attempting to join others who are not honest with their intentions, or willing to do their fair share. It hurts, it degrades the ‘system’.

Stubborn is tired of being taken advantage of.

Stubborn has decided it is best to just say ‘No’.

Awareness Brings Answers

Published December 27, 2018 by tindertender

Have people become too afraid to be flexible, or not brave enough to show their true selves? This is the energy that creates obstacles, difficulties and drama. There is an abundance of negative energy coming from people pretending to be someone they are not.We see evidence of this truth everywhere we look.

To embrace our strengths, we do not need to hate our opposites, we need to rise above this way of thinking.

Do not be afraid to open up, we are about to pass through a gateway that will bring personal change. This rite of passage is close.

Intrusive Energetic Tendrils

Published December 25, 2018 by tindertender

It is amazing how I can be sitting here minding my own business and then get an icky energy feeling in the pit of my stomach. It is not due to food or drink, it is an energy chord … someone’s sending me crappy signals.

This happens often, not only to me, but to all people, many who do not understand the difference between what is ‘theirs’, and what belongs to another.

I have found that recognition of the occurrence, acknowledgement of it, and some deep breathing works wonders in releasing the hold, perhaps even transmuting the energy. If you know Reiki, it can also be utilized in the process. Pendulum healing is also a tool which can be a great addition to the techniques practiced. The quicker the recognition and acknowledgement, the easier the release and transmutation. Knowing how your personal energy feels assists in discerning other, invasive energies.

It is my understanding that the Soul of a person actually rests in this core area, near the belly button, about an inch below and about 3 to 4 inches above. When the guard goes down, when one is relaxed, it is easier for an entity of sorts (physical or non) to attach and siphon this life energy from the body, disrupting the emotional balance and the mind also. Another common attachment ‘favorite’ is the heart chakra.

This is why drugs and alcohol are a very bad thing. It numbs the ability to recognize when this connect and drain happens, it also makes it easier for the mental faculties to be manipulated from an outside source.

If the television is watched frequently, or the computer used for hours at a time, or many other distractions (list so long I’ll leave it to your imagination), it makes it difficult to notice when these  injections or attachments occur. A focused mind is critical in maintaining control over what is allowed in the energetic field.

Practice is so important. If you are in a room having coffee, or working, or whatever, and someone enters … and you notice you begin to feel tension, or become irritable, ask yourself … “Why am I feeling this way? What is this reaction, or response pertaining to? Does this feeling, this emotion belong to me, or is it being transmitted to me by another?”

Be aware of your full body … etheric, auric, energetic, emotional, mental … learn what each part is (there are many resources on-line) and then study how it looks and feels in your own person.

This observation is important for health, and for sanity. Each individual must do the work themselves, for themselves. No one else can determine how it may appear in the individual body … yes, there are basic formats which happen in all people, but just as each individual will hear a conversation differently, so will they feel energy differently. This is a gift only you can give yourself … and you deserve it.

If you are unable to remove yourself from a situation that is causing energetic disturbances, practice your focused breathing and energy work.

There are stones which help in the absorption and transmutation of negative energies which attempt attachment. Tourmaline, Shungite, Jet and Obsidian. Citrine is a great ‘cleansing’ stone and never needs cleansing itself. Use it to clear the other stones you may choose to use. I have included several links below to get you started on your investigative journey of crystals and stones.
