Shifting Perspectives

Published July 31, 2018 by tindertender

Who has what to say to me today?
Have you been listening to me as I rage?

There comes a point in life when it is obvious that what once worked just fine needs alteration. The normalcy of daily living, the allowance of impulses becoming dulled, the sitting back and just letting things be … it does nothing to advance a situation, or feed progression.

Remembering how things truly are is difficult when faced with the welfare and well-being of others, often the impulse is to put ones own life and happiness on hold for them, even while they do not make effort to reciprocate.

Something most of us do not hear enough, if at all …

You are loved, and protected even through the most difficult of trials. This is a time for healing. You have power, and it is real. Seek the truth. Be pure in your intentions, be honest with yourself.

Abundance is wonderful, but not at any cost! Trust that you have enough. It is time to prune back the dead wood in order to grow. Nourish yourself and the earth. You are enough. Be the sunshine in your own life!

Recognize your own unique beauty. Stop comparing yourself to others. While beauty is something to be treasured, it can also become a prison. Stop worrying about what you look like.

It’s time to think big. It’s time for action. Be yourself. Your power is in who you really are. Resist the urge to create a false identity. Build your emotional authenticity. Your time of healing is here. Be inspired to create – this in itself is healing. Overcome what ails you by expressing how you feel about it. Deal with it appropriately, and then move on … do not let it fester.

Embrace yourself, (not brace yourself). Relax into that which you are, and recognize that the others you may be trying to please will usually never be pleased with your efforts, they will always assume more should be done, or that it should be done differently.

Do what you know to be right in your gut instinct, and do not be swayed from your truth. Let no one ‘convince’ you of who you ought to be, or how you ought to behave. If you are not harming another life, or your own, then swingdance … and live!

Life Is A Garden

Published July 22, 2018 by tindertender

Like all gardens, life must be manicured, watered and fed in order to be healthy. So many are trying to assist others in life, they forget to care for themselves. Their ‘garden’ will not be sufficient to ‘feed’ those in need if it isn’t tended to properly.

Manicured simply means keeping tidy. Cut back on the things which aren’t a necessity. Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate! Water is life and nutritious foods are a must to keep the body and mind healthy.

There is much illness in the world these days. Fast food, that which has been sprayed, injected, and genetically altered, multiple pharmaceutical meds which cause other health conditions needing treatment, poison waters, and toxic emotional states. Will people be able to return to the earth ways in time?

It is time for humanity to focus on creating their own way of life. Decades have gone by where reins for the order of things have been given to corporations and those who give them leniency in their covert ways. All one need do is look below the surface of things to see how well that has been working out for everyone.

Adults often ridicule each other for what they believe, how they dress, talk, walk, wear their hair, what the shape and weight of their body may be, etc … the list is immense! Children see this behavior and emulate it in schools. Bullying is taught through action … and then they grow up to continue the cycle.

Be yourself … despite what others think of you, regardless if they shun you. There is only one you, do not hide. Don’t cause harm … least of all to yourself. You will spend the rest of your life with you, be sure you become someone you can love and respect.

There is no need to deny your opposite. Balance between the masculine and feminine is so important, and wholeness generated by such balance rarely given the reverence it is entitled to. All people have these polarities within them, finding center and learning to surf it isn’t easy, but necessary.

Release old habits and beliefs … whatever does not serve your highest and greatest good, let it go. Be courageous, feel your inner power. There is strength in the act of forgiveness.

Know The Truth, and the Truth Shall Set You Free’

5:55 ~ 5 indicates change is coming and triple digits amplify its power.

11:11 ~ The universe is trying to draw your attention to something … you are becoming more connected to the spirit world.

“The Universe is knocking itself out to give you evidence of your alignment.” ~Abraham Hicks

In order to restore balance to an imbalanced world it is important to understand a few things about history, and the role that “the powers that be” have held, and still hold, of the functioning of government systems.

I do not claim to have intricate knowledge of these things. I simply came across information today which has piqued my curiosity, and perhaps it will yours as well. I include links to some of this information in the event you would like to quickly read about some of these historical records.

It begins with one of the oldest stories known to our present time. I will outline a few things here and if you are inclined to delve into further expansion, I encourage you to investigate with the tools available to you.

The Flavian family … Titus had his father deified as god upon his death, essentially making Titus the “son of god”. It appears the gospels were written at this time.

They burned the Second Temple, putting on exposition all stolen items in The Palace of Peace except for the Jewish scriptures, which were put on display in the palace, where no one was allowed entry to see it.

They created texts which used “typological” patterns. These patterns were taken from the story of Mithras, among many other stories of ‘pagan’ lore. The story was backdated 40 years.

There are over 40 typological parallels between the gospels and the story of Josephus. These parallels are in the same sequence, which warrants questioning and needs to be challenged.

Solar Mythology, Sun God, and summer solstice … what does it all mean to the ‘story’?

What does Jewish mythology have to teach us?

Who killed the Druids?

https://21stcenturywire.com/2014/10/12/ancient-druids-why-were-the-romans-so-afraid-of-them/

https://www.quora.com/Why-did-the-Romans-slaughter-the-Druids

The Flavians’ ran a fascist empire. “Believe only, you don’t have to change, give to church and ruler what belongs to them.” https://www.vocabulary.com/dictionary/fascist

The earliest Roman church were the Flavians’. Flavia Domitilla was the first Christian saint. According to some, her son was the first pope, Pope Clement I. According to others, he was the fourth. There is much controversy regarding this. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pope_Clement_I

Priests of the so called “Pagan cult” became priests of Rome.

The word ‘Gospel’ means ‘Evangelical’ which means ‘good news of military victory’.

Did the Romans execute the true writers of scripture?

Was the Flavian caesar to be revered as Christ?

Did the Roman Imperial cult become the Vatican?

So often we are told, “Do as I say, not as I do!” This phrase has been embedded in the minds of citizens for centuries, so much so, parents even tell their children this. The subliminal instruction runs very deep in the psyche from generations of training.

The truth has always been, The Force, or Power, is within You. One must only recognize this fact, die to the old (break the cycle of inner instruction bred from previous generations, the habit gifted you from the start of this physical life), and birth a new you. Be the alchemist you came to this planet to be … the Earth needs you to remember who you are.

We Are All Related

Published June 26, 2018 by tindertender

Russell tells it like it is … we’d be wise to start listening to the words he gave to us so graciously …

https://upliftconnect.com/rainbow-prophecy/
“One day… there would come a time, when the earth being ravaged and polluted, the forests being destroyed, the birds would fall from the air, the waters would be blackened, the fish being poisoned in the streams, and the trees would no longer be, mankind as we would know it would all but cease to exist … 

… There will come a day when people of all races, colors, and creeds will put aside their differences. They will come together in love, joining hands in unification, to heal the Earth and all Her children. They will move over the Earth like a great Whirling Rainbow, bringing peace, understanding and healing everywhere they go. Many creatures thought to be extinct or mythical will resurface at this time; the great trees that perished will return almost overnight. All living things will flourish, drawing sustenance from the breast of our Mother, the Earth.”

Phoenix Rising

The Chippewa visionary “No-Eyes” saw and predicted many of the current earth changes more than 20 years before they happened. She made her transition into the spirit world in 1984 and this book was published in 1987. In just the last few years the number and intensity of tornadoes and hurricanes has more than tripled as she foresaw. She even told Summer Rain there would be computer warfare in the future, which just happened in November 2014 when Sony Pictures was hacked by North Korea. How could a blind woman, who never saw a computer in her life and died more than 29 years ago, predict such events? She had a spiritual gift and we all are so blessed to have the information that Mary Summer Rain has so generously shared with us which is extremely relevant today. Even the increased train accidents, such as the recent one in Philadelphia and the one before that in California, were seen to increase due to human errors. Summer Rain has gone through many difficult trials and suffering because of her courage to print the truth. May she be blessed eternally for it.

DIY Shampoo Bar

Published June 14, 2018 by tindertender

Eliminating plastics from the household is turning out to be quite the challenge! Torn between tossing everything and replacing with Corning-ware or stainless steel or wood, I keep what I have for now. I worry about it winding up in the ocean, or land fill to stay for centuries.

I’ve been distilling my water for two years now. I do whatever I can to buy things in glass, and I am working on making reusable grocery bags the new norm. While shopping I try to avoid the things in plastic, but it is everywhere!! Poison galore … bamboo tooth brushes and bamboo toilet paper are handy dandy items I’ve adopted into the home.

Recently I have decided to start making my own shampoo bars. I wish to eliminate the plastic bottles shampoo and conditioner come in from my household, and so I will. Below is a recipe I came across. I await the ingredients I’ve ordered and when they arrive I will get busy and teach myself the art of making good soap.

For my first batch I thank:

http://naturallyhandcrafted.com/soap/shampoo-bar/diy-solid-shampoo-bar/

I am excited to try this recipe and be on my way to further disentanglement of that which is so destructive and disruptive of cellular function.

Ingredients needed to make DIY Shampoo Bar:

1 Unrefined Coconut Oil – 8 oz.

2 Olive Oil – 3.2 oz.

3 Castor Oil – 2.24 oz.

4 Sunflower Oil – 1.28 oz.

5 Raw Unrefined Cocoa Butter – 1.28 oz.

6 Food Grade Lye (Sodium Hydroxide) – 2.2 oz.

7 Coconut Milk or Distilled Water – 2.6 oz.

8 (optional) Avocado – 1.25 oz.

9 (optional) Rhassoul Clay – 1 tablespoon.

10 (optional) Apple Cider Vinegar – 0.5 oz.

11 Soap Mold.

There are so many talented and creative people in this world! To them I give a huge Thank You!” for sharing your recipes, ideas, and expertise. In deep gratitude I accept the blessing of your shared knowledge as I work to break ‘recent tradition’ (of the last century) and move deep into the heart of lore, improving on present circumstance.

Old wives tales and skills which continue from way back when … I welcome you into my world.

Like Everyone Else

Fashion, career, morning drink, meal times, tradition, religion … there really aren’t too many categories people live by and in. Sure, these things change from culture to culture, yet the basic category structure remains the same.

Most cultures have a few rules each citizen is expected to adhere to. If people deter from them, often they are beaten, killed, or ousted from the society. Fear of these things keeps them in check and obedient.

Was the world always this way? Did the every day civilian always bow to the tyranny of the ones making the ‘rules’? Was there ever a time when people worked together in harmony for the benefit of all?

History is written by the ‘so called’ winner. We are finding now that so much of the past has been wiped from the books, only told what they needed us to know in order to get the public to back them on whatever decisions they made, and continue to make.

It is sad that millions of people were (and are) lied to and intentionally kept in the dark about their true heritage, all so the few can reign supreme over them. Civil wars of the past? I get the feeling it was about much more than we’ve been taught.

 

What Are You Afraid Of?

Published June 12, 2018 by tindertender

So much time wasted on fear, fear of what others think, or what they might do. Fear of not being accepted, or of being denied, forgotten, abused.

Extreme fear has the capacity to render one immobile, frozen in place, unable to function. Often just the thought of what could be is enough to succeed in this paralyzation of people.

There are times when one can be so sure that disaster, or ill harm is going to happen. Most times this is all that is needed … the manipulators only have to introduce these ideas to people and the rest is … well, it is actually what we see in the world today.

Television shows us boogeymen (and women) in a fashion that is quite exaggerated. More often than not, the truly awful and dangerous stuff isn’t quite as easy to discern. Disguised as something good and beneficial it can be too late to alter course once the reality is seen, too late to change direction smoothly anyway.

Facing the innermost fear is indeed a challenge. Mustering up courage to walk into that which one would rather run from is very difficult. But in most cases this effort will bring reward, and that reward is the knowledge that what was feared is not capable of living up to the imagination of its power.

Laying in a tiny room she knew they were waiting for her, outside. A friend tried to comfort her, she could not bring herself to believe what he was saying, she did not trust that he knew what he was talking about. He was forgiving and did not get upset, for he knew her dilemma. Finally, she rose, determined to exit the space, thinking to herself, “if I die, so be it.” Lo and behold, she walked out and found she was free. No one was there to harm her, her imagination was the only thing which held her prisoner.

Facing fear will be the hardest thing ever done, but once done, an understanding of how powerless these imaginings are will be known. Most times, the imagination will give something much bigger and scarier to a person to think about, much larger than the reality.

Gifting ones self this exercise is empowering, for in facing that which robs one of personal capacity, that which was stolen, and more, will be obtained.
