Trusting Our Instincts

Published April 20, 2018 by tindertender

I talk a lot on this blog about trusting instincts.

Energy ResponsibilityRecently I began going to meetings with a group of folks. After the first meeting my whole being said not to go back. I considered maybe I was being unreasonable, so went back anyhow. That next meeting was okay. Then the third meeting came which threw me for another loop and again the feeling that there was something ‘not right’. I waited and went back again, feeling okay with it. However this last meeting I recognized the game … I was looked at in the eyes and was told that there was no room for truth in me, for I had no awareness. Although it was later explained that it was not a judgement on me (even though the message came with solid eye connection and words spoken directly to me). Well, this absolutely went against my intuition and everything I know about myself and lifes experience.

I conferred with a friend who sees energy and was told a little about this group from his knowledge and experience. I’ve decided to remain aloof from the group for it fosters self-doubt, it decreases the surety of ones self to be able to trust in their own experience.

Standing firm in ones personal, instinctual knowledge, knowing that we are surrounded by our kin of past generations (and others), we can relax in the beautiful exchange between us … like the trees convert our exhaled breath into the next one we inhale, this exchange is crucial to life. There is a balance being maintained … a balance between each other, and a balance between the seen and the unseen. Within this experience a nurturing must take place, not by causing uncertainty in others in order to have them ‘follow’ a certain teaching, but by lifting each other and sharing our experience, freely, to whatever capacity we are able.

Manipulation of any kind is not acceptable.
Time to knock it to it’s knees.

Understanding Energy

Energy ~ It sprouts from me in a very boisterous manner. Many people over the years have bypassed making me part of the team, or making good on promises to allow opportunity for advancement in life, or simply denying training and coaching.

This journey has been somewhat of a solo one. I’ve had to be observant of those in action, those who received what I did not. I’ve studied their performance and behaviors trying to figure out what others saw in them, that they did not see in me.

As time passes I see also that those who left me standing alone look at me with new eyes, seeing something they didn’t notice before. Although I would like to say I would join the team, it is past that time now … for this soloing journey has moved me beyond what they could offer.

There are others though, who have something to contribute to this life long lessen I study. I am grateful to them. AND I am grateful to those who denied me, for without them, I would not have been so persistent.

It is still hard though, when someone states there is “no room in me” for … peace … or whatever else they think of. It really only tells me that I’ve got a lot more work to do … and with, or without them, this work will be done.

I suppose it is difficult for anyone to understand another. We are not in each others heads, we have not lived each others experiences, we do not feel as another may feel. Even this leaves room for acceptance and growth.

We may not always receive what we want, but we DO always receive what we need.

Let’s get to it.

Tremendous Power

Published April 16, 2018 by tindertender

I have Come to the Frightening Conclusion that I am the Decisive Element. It is My Personal Approach that Creates the Climate. It is My Daily Mood that Makes the Weather. I Possess Tremendous Power to Make Life Miserable or Joyous. ~ Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (1749 – 1832) J.J.L

To All Who Have Remained Strong, And To All Those Who May Be Wavering

Published April 11, 2018 by tindertender

For so long you have been strong. It may seem as though the weight is immense, you may be feeling tired, unsure of how much longer you can stand firm in the winds of life.

UniversePerspective:
This Universe is vast.

At times normal everyday occurrences may seem huge, and a heaviness may settle over all that is in daily life. Go beyond that, if even for a moment, and think of the larger picture.

Life in this world creates the outer which we see, and also that which we do not see. Without we, there would be no-thing.

Relax into this experience, transform those emotions that have been bound in you, allow a sweet vulnerability which accepts assistance from brothers, and from sisters, from your city or town, your state, your country, and from the world.

We are in this together. We can accept the bigger picture, or we can just allow ourselves to be overwhelmed by a sense of smallness and helplessness.

Extinction Cascade

Published April 9, 2018 by tindertender

Extinction CascadeThe White Rhino was recently announced to be extinct, and more recently the Eastern Puma … gone forever. Many more will begin to leave this planet as well, with a rapidity which will spin our minds. The whales of the sea are dying along with all of the other life that dwells there.

When will humanity change their destructive ways and stop being so damn greedy?

The 50-foot whale, constructed from waste such as bags, containers and bottles, was created by environmental NGO Greenpeace Philippines as part of efforts to encourage the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) to address the problem of plastic pollution.

Beached Whale art for awareness

This may be a sculpture to help bring awareness to this dire issue, but it does not lessen the travesty being wrought upon all life through these destructive habits we’ve adopted world wide.

Harmony & Unity

Published April 8, 2018 by tindertender

UnityWhen the lone wolf begins to understand that strength lies in the pack, the magic happens, and swiftly.

For too long people have separated themselves from each other. Fear has kept us divided. Jealousy has hardened many hearts.

Understand that all things change, nothing stays the same. Embrace what each situation brings, the pathways they open in our mind, and deepness it brings to our soul.

Wave surfers

This life is an ocean with many waves and surfers. There is a rhythm which naturally happens when all are focused … in harmony there is unity.

A radiance emanates from people who are intent on achieving something. No greed, no need for power, simple solutions made successful by those who work together. A conscious cooperation which benefits the whole.

The Healer

Published April 4, 2018 by tindertender

I, the fiery life of divine wisdom,
I ignite the beauty of the plains,
I sparkle the waters,
I burn in the sun, and the moon, and the stars,
With wisdom I order all rightly …
I adorn all the Earth,
I am the breeze that nurtures all things green …
I am the rain coming from the dew
That causes the grasses to laugh with the joy of life.
I call forth the tears, the aroma of holy work.
I am the yearning for good.
~ Hildegard of Bingen

Green Dream

The Healer dwells in each and every one of us, the opposite is there also. In choice, which is where our power is, we decide which one we will give life, which one we will allow to manifest in the world.

The path for people, although showing up in different arrangements is quite similar. There is no right or wrong order to things, it is what it is, and it will become what we will it to. Of course, we are not alone on this journey, for there are those we cannot see with these physical eyes who assist us in being all that we can be. It is up to us to pay attention to this and to acknowledge it, making it part of our daily lives.

Some folks will say it is all about them, and that everything that happens is due to their efforts. Some will say this experience has nothing to do with them, that their lives are at the mercy of others.

When all comes into alignment, there will be big shifts. It may be difficult to trust in this process during dark times, especially if they are some of your first experiences, but as life continues the trust is built around these supports we nay not see.

Helping Each OtherIs this what it’s all about, learning to trust?

We enter life trusting completely other people to see to our needs, often this trust is broken early on. Regaining this ability can be quite the challenge, in fact it could take the rest of life, journeying back to the place we began. Without effort to heal … to forgive … it cannot be, so if there is genuine interest in achieving inner peace, then there ought to be the attempt.

The most difficult journey ever is ours, to do with what we will, and to be whatever we choose. It is up to each of us to transform our experiences, to use the power of choice and to become the alchemists that we inherently are.
