Open Doors ~ Enter, Or No?

Published August 13, 2018 by tindertender

How many doors are there to all knowledge? Is one forced to locate ‘A’ door? Pigeon holed into one line of entry? Or are there many doors, everywhere, all along life’s path?

Wherever we find ourselves on the journey, we will find, upon deep reflection, we are actually in the eye of the storm, standing smack dab in the middle of where all doors … and openings … meet.

Do you dare enter one of the doors? Or do you open them all and stand center, sending love and song and sweetness into each of them? Not really joining with, or meshing with any single room, or path, or group.

She spins right, wearing her white dress. Sparkles begin to fly off of her as she spins, entering the dark opening of each door. It’s as though a clear tube is surrounding all of them, and sliding down the walls of the aperture are golden streams, like water dripping down the outer edges. Darkness is behind, on the outside of this ‘tube’ yet these golden rivulets are reflecting light.

She stands in a circle of light and all of the doors seem to disappear, all except one large opening. It seems to open into darkness, but as she looks at it, it begins to glow slightly blue, ever so subtle in the dim, near impenetrable view.

The image changes to a sunset. The sky a pale blue as light fades. Silhouettes begin to appear. Buildings, hills, and anything that is abound the earth.

Hair like liquid gold, parted on the right. Gentle waves and a thin band across the forehead. Features delicate, beautiful … yet eyes are like icy laser beams. Your energy pushes against my middle and a sensation like … fear? … butterflies?

I wonder, your features say you are young, your stature small … yet there is no such thing as small is there? That is a word humans dreamed up after they stuffed themselves into a flesh suit. Reality … who are you really? Why are you pretending to be small when in fact you are so very large? Are you here to burn away my illusion? What if I’m not ready? What if I’m comfortable in the uncomfortableness?

Strange. I thought myself courageous, brave, and willing to face what is … yet this moment allows me to understand there is still fear embedded in the mind. It holds me back from walking through doors, from committing to anything … it keeps me remaining aloof.

One thing I’ve learned is that while patient, there is only so much of it (patience) that can be offered an individual. At some point, the comfortable will be pushed into discomfort, forced to stretch beyond that which they know. We’re compelled to face our fear, willingly … or kicking and screaming.

I think again about what nice means. I think to myself, it wasn’t very nice of me to yell at someone the other day. Fortunately for me, he forgives easily, quickly, and just lets it go like it never happened. Then on the other hand I know someone who refuses to even try to come to an understanding … about what? I do not know. I realize I’m swimming between two poles of experience with two different people. One who forgives and moves on, the other who refuses and fosters negativity, holding onto a grudge without explanation as to what it might be about. Two completely different reality’s, and me standing in the middle. Emotions pulled from one extreme to the other.

All of a sudden I consider many other things as well, and decide I’m just going to sleep. It isn’t easy knowing how small I am, living in this body, feeling how large I am should it be released. Not too thrilled about meeting the fierce, golden haired, girl like figure, for she looks and feels like she’ll cut someone clear to the soul, whether they be large or not.

Sacred Earth Balancers

Published August 2, 2018 by tindertender

It isn’t that the Earth Balancers have stepped back to leave us to our own demise, it is that they are leaving this planet, one by one, as age requires. Indigenous cultures have been systematically wiped out and absorbed, the ways in which they harmonized the earth, the sacred knowledge, has been nearly eliminated and the youth who would have at one time followed in their elders footsteps, are ‘modernized’ and ‘cellurized’, the many separated into singularity.

We see through microwaves and cellular waves the destruction of the singular … it is intentional, it is corrupt, and it is carefully strategized.

We’ve seen record of the past which shows time and time again these ancient knowings have been destroyed. Why is it that ‘they’ wish for the people to be separated from the All That Is?

The funds which at one point were used in beneficial manners for beautification and improvement, to benefit life, have been funneled off the people and utilized for war and destruction instead. Everything, and everyone, suffers for these decisions.

We’re coming into the obvious now, as forms and formulas are used to harm … the planet … waters, earth and air ~ and all life upon it … plants, animals, people. The ways of honor do not live in the hearts of those who have gained control through methods of killing and destroying all that is good.

The Earth Balancers have been disrupted. Their are those who would wipe out the medicines and prayers and ceremonies. We can see the harm this damage has done as the planet heaves.

Recognition of this truth is integral to the health and healing of what has been done. Once we understand the balance has been intentionally disrupted in the name of greed and power, we will return to the ways that facilitate peace and calm, honor, integrity, and care.

Regardless if you are of native decent or not, this world is our world, it belongs to all people. We must come together as One, respecting each other and what we have to offer … the sacred practices which bring balance … every contribution to the whole which has intention for highest and greatest good for all … is immeasurably valued.

The Earth Tribe is you now … All Of You … All Of US …

Stewards Of Earth

Published July 16, 2018 by tindertender

Since the dawn of time all physical forms have merged with the earth at death. Many species, including humans, have deteriorated and become the ‘life blood’ of this planet.

The oil and gas that is embedded in the crust of this world comes from the physical life form. WE are the oil and the gases that are pillaged from its flesh. And it is WE who allow the usage of it.

When we fill our tanks and burn the fuel, we must consider the ancestors of the long ago past, and those recently buried, for it is their flesh and bone which supply these oils and gases, it is also this which supplies the earth with its blood, and it is needed to keep cycles going in an even and balanced manner. This is what maintains good flow ~ when it is sucked out, the earth shrivels and we get sink holes, quakes and such.

While living we have agreed to allow governments and corporations to use our skills, our labor. We have permitted them to put a price tag on that work, and we have also permitted them to charge us for the fruits of that labor. They take our time, they take a portion of our wages and use it to wage wars, and they charge tax on the foods and products we create. They seem to believe our effort is owned by them, when in fact it is an exchange we have offered them. They bully and abuse the laborer as though they are property.

When will we insist this cycle end? Do we have capacity to consider those we have loved and cherished in the past? It is they who have contributed to the balance of planetary health. We have fallen prey (and so have they) to the greed and power needs of those ‘in charge’. We have been blinded into believing that we must suck the fluids from the earth, we have been convinced we are not doing harm to the precious balance of the world.

Do we have the courage to reject the ways of destruction? Are we able to commit to working hard in order to maintain balance and health? Is there love and capacity enough in our hearts to honor the lives which came before us? Are we strong enough to shed the misconception that we need someone else to care for us?

Is peace and harmony really worth working for, or is it simply words people like to spout off? Are we courageous enough to break down barriers and actually form trusted bonds with each other, people to people, bound with the spirits and life forms of past, and the life of this planet which supports us?

Honor for each other, for this earth and the waters which flow here must be if we stand a chance.

These cycles have gone on for centuries. Whole peoples have disappeared … the ancient Egyptians and Mayans, Atlantis, Lemuria and others. Villages and cultures have nearly been obliterated as the knowledge of old has been strategically eliminated, integrated into this sick culture which has been bred by those who view us as ‘human capital’ and ‘needless feeders’. This knowledge is the stuff that will save us … and only our protection will save the world and life upon it … as we need saving, the ancient past needs saving too.

Their is only one who will save the world and life upon it … that ‘One’ is the combination of all men and women and children who decide to come together As One and work for harmony in this world. Do we have what it takes? Or has the very heart of us been squashed and tied to strings which we are not able to break bond with?

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

Published July 14, 2018 by tindertender

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://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.

Emergence Into The Next Phase

Published July 13, 2018 by tindertender

Here we are, living together in this world. Seen and unseen meshing.

Purifying the mind, body, and spirit takes effort. It is the task put before you. What prominent belief about yourself do you carry that inhibits you from being fully engaged in life, from showing up 100% of the time? Purify your heart by allowing yourself to breathe in and out blessings and forgiveness so that you can love more deeply.

Let yourself feel your grief – truly feel it – so that the rivers of your tears help cleanse the wounds in your soul.

Detoxify your body (the temple, and seat of the soul) by changing your diet, doing a cleanse, or simply drinking more water. Increasing the amount of water you drink, with appreciation for its purpose, will revitalize your spirit.

Whatever you suppress or deny and attempt to keep out of conscious awareness will show up somewhere and somehow. These are your shadow aspects. At one time, you put them out of your consciousness for good reason, yet they remain contained by shame and guilt. Sometimes these submerged aspects of self are projected onto others so that they mirror the suppressed parts of you, and you may even harshly judge these characteristics when you see them.

Now is the time to allow these elements to surface and embrace them. Whatever you have submerged deep inside of you, this is your opportunity to pay attention and welcome them to the family called “you”.

It is time for you to go on a vision quest. Spend a few hours or days in nature, in solitude praying or meditating. Wherever you go, take your question, concern, or challenge with you, allow it to float around in your consciousness, and watch what shows up.

You are in an intense process of emergence into the next cycle of your life. This shift is one of broadened and heightened perceptual capacities … surrender to the flow, allow yourself to move in to the next cycle of your life.

Giving & Receiving ~ Can Be SO HARD

Published June 27, 2018 by tindertender

Abundance calls for giving, and that is what I did. I brought gifts for her, and him … I was told to be careful, or his wife would get jealous … I looked at her and gave her smile and a hug and asked that she not do that.

I remember the days when this would would happen to me … I would be suspicious of people when they were ‘too nice’. And so when I heard this it made me sad, for when people cannot accept genuine care without hooks or need of return, then the world becomes a sad and lonely place, suspicious of everyone and everything … essentially, what you see today.

I understand what is happening for I’ve worn the shoes of both aspects. I’ve been jealous, and yet I long to give, no strings attached. Jealousy usually comes from insecurity, in having the need for love, and not exactly trusting in that love.

When someone comes along with gifts and a smile, it doesn’t necessarily mean anything other than you’ve finally met someone who wishes to share and make life a little better. Someone who, by their actions, wishes to assist in the improvement of life in the whole of the world.

It can be difficult to trust when there has been so much hurt given. Shutting out kindness not only shuts out possibility for more hurt, but it closes the door to friendship, to care, to the ‘lifting’ of each other.

We must shed past habits of defense, to embrace sharing and caring, giving of ourselves to each other without strings … it’s the only way to heal.

Not everything is an attempt at theft … often, it is only an attempt of giving … receiving can be so hard.

“Humans are addicted to the illusion of separation. We fall for it constantly. We must protect ourselves from harm, but we are not separate from the fate of others. We are bound, relentlessly so, to one another. Harm to one is harm to the whole.”

Plucking Fear From Mind & Body

Published June 22, 2018 by tindertender

This world is a breeding ground for fear. Upon entering this life there is a pure innocence and joy, often stripped away before words are even spoken, or soon thereafter.

Fear lives so deeply within the body/spirit system, sometimes it isn’t even known. Through life a tough exterior is grown, a stiff upper lip, a stubborn thrust of the chin, a bad attitude … whatever it takes to defend the self from the continuous lash of what hurts.

A false joy is developed, many become experts at pretending happiness, they stuff the pain until it cannot be recognized, but it is still there … wrapped in fear. Heck, there are even times when one truly believes they are happy! Then something happens and they begin to question that reality … at least I have.

There are those who coach people to walk into the fear, face it head on … even I have said it, and I believe it! Yet still, knowing this and actually doing it are two different things. Sometimes when we think we are walking into it, we hold back ~ not even knowing we reserved the right to maintain the embedded habit of fear, to hold that wall of protection up just in case.

Yes, this world breeds fear, and also provides what is needed to overcome it … strength is developed, endurance, a stubborn will that calls for us to survive even when we would rather quit.

How does one shed the fear? How does one actually reach so deep inside the core of the being, grab hold of that fear, pinch it, and pluck it right from the body and the mind? There are many theories written and taught by those who say they have no fear … but do they? Neither here nor there, each individual must find a way to their center and have a willingness to honestly evaluate what they find there. It cannot be done for us ~ it can only be done by us, for us.

The question is then, how badly do we wish for peace? At what lengths are we willing to go to create it?

The Sacred Wisdom Keepers know of this better than many. If we long for the truth, if we truly wish to see a better world, this is a good place to search, beginning of course by looking into our own being. There must be a desire to open the mind in order to receive knowledge, and there ought to be a respect for the sharing one receives from an Elder.

Life is short, even when one lives to be what we now consider old. There isn’t time to waste on stubbornness and pretending, not if we long to see a world full of truth, peace, joy, and love.
