What Are You Made Of?

Published October 12, 2018 by tindertender

For us to find the beginnings of true peace and to extend a compassionate hand to others, we must start with compassion for ourselves. Forgive yourself. Forgive others. Compassion for another’s situation is important. Consider another persons point of view and choose connection rather than separation.

It’s time to think big. You are a star in your own right. There are unlimited possibilities. It is fine not to know every detail before proceeding. Mystery is a natural part of life. Share the infinite and expand accordingly. Think big and set positive intentions.

You are creative in every way. There are no barriers to constant, consistent creation. Allow yourself to create in joy, not because of pressure. Connect more deeply with the earth.

Do not give up; there is hope yet. Hope is a life changing emotion. Without it, people literally die. It is important to understand that hope requires some action. If we decide to co-create with our chosen deities and truly have faith in this process, we will not need to ask for a miracle, because we are working toward what we want with assistance. It is important not to just hope for change but to hope from a place of good intention, and to act.

Allow what you no longer need to be destroyed or reduced. Build your emotional authenticity. We aren’t always taught how to deal with sadness, anger, depression, or even jealousy, but they aren’t strange or unnatural emotions. In fact, everyone feels them at some point or another, but it is how we express them that makes the difference. In accepting these emotions and expressing them in a healthy way, we are able to release them and move on.

We are all irresistible in our own ways. Enjoyment is a natural part of life. Center yourself and be confident among chaos. External beauty is not enough ~ it is confidence that truly creates beauty.

Justice will be done for the good of all. Take responsibility for your actions. The chaos in life will end; natural order will be restored.

You are enough. Build your self-esteem from the inside out. It’s your turn to shine! Be the sunshine in your own life! If your strong, healthy self-esteem tips over into arrogance or narcissism, it is not true balance. In this world full of celebrities who are famous just for being famous, it is not surprising that many people believe that self-esteem and self-worth come from the outside in, from the admiration of others. Take the admiring people away, and if there is no solid core of self-worth, there is little left.

Trust that you have enough. Ask and you will receive. It is time to prune back the dead wood in order to grow. Nourish yourself and the earth. When we struggle to let go, we may feel stagnant for a time. When circumstances seem grim, we can catastrophize what is going wrong and easily overlook the things in our lives that are doing well. Sometimes things need to clear out to make room for another. Tough decisions need to be made at times. If brave enough to leave behind that which no longer serves highest good and move naturally, freely, in the direction we really want to go, the fruit of our labors is wildly born.

It is time for change, and it will be positive. Respect your own natural cycle. Be mindful of seasonal changes and go with the flow taking these into account in your diet and activity level. Life cycles are natural. There are times to feel introverted and extroverted, energetic and restful, happy and sad ~ none of these is better than the other. Take time to connect with your personal cycles and you can expect to reap many benefits.

Don’t expect yourself to be happy just because others are, or ready for the same steps at the same time. Let your body and mind experience your life naturally and without expectation based on someone else’s cycles. Pressuring yourself or others to want the same things at the same time isn’t healthy or respectful to your true self.

Are you crazy? No … you’re experiencing the cycle of your life, unique, and yet similar to all other life. It will be easier should you embrace these cycles, rather than fight them, or try to alter them to conform with others that you may feel are more ‘normal’. There is nothing more ‘normal’ than your own cycle and rhythm, embrace it … in all it’s pain and glory. This is your dance. Honor it.

 

Flexing In Time

Published October 10, 2018 by tindertender

The questions we ask of ourselves, and then ponder, are keys to opening up and expanding current awareness. For instance:

How can I be more flexible?

Flexibility could mean the bodily joints, it could mean having patience when plans go afoul, and it could mean being open to people, places and things that have unknown potential for life.

Fear often inhibits the freedom to be flexible. Suspicion of others intentions often causes rigidity of spine and energies, and a stillness comes over one, or should I say, a stubbornness.

Flexible spending, flexible time schedules, flexible mind, willing to take on, or at least consider, new knowledge or possibilities.

Thinking about things deeply can bring about criticism, especially if far-out ideas and theories are shared. Not too many people are ready to consider the fantastic as possible reality.

Star Trek, Space War, Weather modification and manipulation, Mind control, The presence of other life forms right before our eyes … these things are not fantasy, although there are plenty of folks who insist they are.

So as not to be part of the rigid, unbendable type, I practice ‘flexing’ the mind, considering all possibilities and investigating all scenarios that are called ‘conspiracy theory’.

The more you are willing to know …

Life is about flow. The years flow into each other, the seasons too. The human body flows through the years, so slowly the shift in appearance is barely perceptible until several years pass. The mind flows from one opinion to the next, and when what is thought to be real and true are blown out of the water, the mind once again latches onto something ‘comfortable’, making this new situation ‘real’.

Sitting in my chair last night I envisioned myself as a child, fresh and innocent, in love with life and with love. As the years went by things happened, people happened, and hurts felt were shared and spread. And time continued to flow, until an awareness began to creep in, and then pour in.

I saw these aspects of my life hold hands and form a circle. They smiled at each other and others, and they began to dance a little, moving in a counter-clockwise circle.

I Am Many …

We all are. How can we be more flexible? By first understanding that every single memory we have of every single day we’ve been alive, is an aspect of ourselves which still lives, and is very real.

Some folks talk of the inner child, and it is true, they are there too. Along with the 10 year old, and the 16year old, and the 21 year old, and the 30 year old and so forth. Thinking of these times in life I am certain you too have solid memories making it easy to visualize yourself at certain events or situations.

Let every single memory you hold be embraced and loved by the adult you currently are. Hold the injured one, laugh with the smiling one, and work with the adventurous one. They are all here, living still … inside each and every one of us.

To deny these important parts of ourself is to deny the strengths and courage each aspect has to offer.

Be flexible, offer them homage inside your mind, your heart, and your life. Your capacities will amplify, and love too … self love, spilling into love for all life in this world, other planets, and in all spaces between.

Time Structures and Hidden Love

Published October 7, 2018 by tindertender

I finally found the love for an abuser in my past. I remembered while soaking in a mineral bath this morning the sorrow I felt for him when he told me he watched his house burn, and his mother was inside. I remember the damage that it must have done to his young heart and mind, and how he found it impossible to be nice to women he was intimate with. I was of the belief he blamed her for running back into the house, for leaving him, and therefore he took it out on the women he had relations with. I could have been completely wrong, but this is where my love for him lay. To find it today is in a way a sense of closure, for I thought up until then I despised him. So nice to find the love in my heart was still there.

I also found love in my heart for a female who was abusive as she played the role of ‘baby sitter’ in my youth. She never would have done the things she did if she, too, had not been victimized and abused. I was able to forgive her, and find compassion for her inner child.

And me … that beautiful child I once was who loved dancing in the rain, feeding the cows, picking flowers and appreciating them not for their smell, for often they did not smell real good, but for their beauty. She loved the potato bugs that were always between the grass and the driveway cement, butterflies and cherry blossoms and wind and blue skies. She loved haunted houses, one of which was at the end of the street, she was able to stay the night there, sleeping under the kitchen table, for things were always thrown around in the night by the unseen. She loved bumble bees and laughter and helping peel potatoes. Oh beautiful girl, I love you so much. Your faith in love and joy were incredible.

For years now I have been surrounded by those in a Council Circle, female, male, and male child to the left, two males to the right, and crying boy in the center at the outside of the circle, as well as many others who are on the outside edges of the circle. They have a lot of discussion going on, looking for something that will end this cycle they find themselves in.

I saw myself as an antennae, one armed raised, palm up and flat receiving light from the heavens, and one arm down, hand bent and palm flat with the earth, another beam of light blasting into the soil on which I stood, uniting Heaven and Earth with an amazing channel of light.

A little surprised, the knowing that I Am Many came to mind. I visualized the child, the young girl, the young woman, the woman, and the older me of the future. We were standing in a circle around the council circle shown above, and we held hands while we smiled at those in the inner circle, moving in a counter clockwise motion.

It seemed a little strange that we moved in a counter-clockwise manner. Could it be we were unwinding time, and experiences? Undoing wrongs that had been done?

Circumambulation is done in a clockwise movement, many religions do this in worship, or to ward off evil.

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Circumambulation

Widdershins is what the counter-clockwise movement is called. In Judaism sometimes circles are walked in this manner. “The twentieth-century German-Jewish philosopher Franz Rosenzweig suggested that the secret to returning to Judaism is to connect to Jewish time. The Sabbaths and the Festivals structure life; they transform time that is otherwise constructed on the basis of secular obligations and opportunities into sacred time.”

Perhaps there is much more to be discovered in this consciousness. Knowing that I Am Many, I can visualize different aspects of myself during this life, as we hold hands and move in this circular motion. Maybe one day I will come to understand the actual meaning of this ‘dance’.

Until then, I’ll be working on my visualization techniques. After all, if you can visualize the mountain as moving, then it will.

Hard Questions

It is time for deep self inventory. Ask yourself if your desires are driving you to become more self serving. Have you forgotten to help others? Do your ambitions relate to making yourself special, apart from others, or better than they are? Have you become competitive, envious, or driven?

“True ambition is not what you believe it to be. No focus on winning a jeweled prize, no amount of pomp and circumstance, will achieve true prosperity. True ambition is the deep desire to live usefully and walk humbly under the grace of the Divine in service to all.”

In a tiny, still moment of surrender, miracles are born.
Shine your light, do not give in to fear.

Are you mesmerized by false power? The material world is fleeting, nothing lasts forever. Make sure your intentions come from deep within you, and don’t base them just on money or power or what you think love will do for you. Ask instead what you can offer, what you can give.

True wealth resides within peace, harmony, and a sense of purpose. Remember that Light isn’t garish and cold, nor is it manufactured ~ it is warm and brilliant and natural.

Is it your Ego, or your Soul leading you? There are always choices in life. When torn between two options, the one you choose to feed is the one that wins. Which is it?  If it is not the one that serves the highest of your intentions, deliberately feed the other and the duel will be won in your favor.

Dancing In The Storm

Published February 24, 2018 by tindertender

Where shall we go?
A journey will be made
Destination unknown.
Companions, unknown.

Many are seeking
A path of peace, of learning.
Will agreement be possible
To benefit all?

No need for sorrow
For it will be.
That which you seek 
Not only possible, but true.

Lion in storm

War breaks out 
All around us,
Individual, and en mass.
Steadily, we move forward.

There is a danger 
In moving too quickly,
In being obvious
Concerning decisions.

Stealthy movement,
Slow and steady breath.
Patience and a practice
For maintaining perspective.

Let go of notions
Which limit the field.
Live in each moment,
Notice what is.

All will be well,
Despite the odds.
I know this to be true
And so should you.

Trust yourself,
Believe in yourself.
In unison, this dance
Is a celebration.

An engaging together,
A forming of union
Which is freedom and care …
For the whole.

We’re Gonna Have A Party

Published February 8, 2018 by tindertender

This morning, while taking my shower a song popped into my head and I do not know why. I didn’t tell you about it for I thought it was coincidence that this oldie came into mind. I worked my shift, came home and had supper, even went to bed. I woke up after just a short time, went to the kitchen for ice cream and once again, this song came to mind. Is it a message from the unseen … or do I just want to have a party?

I prefer to think someone(s) are trying to tell me there is going to be reason for celebration. I prefer to be pretty darn happy about that perceived fact.

Not Your Kitty

I’m not your kitty. I am a Leo, but more like a Leopard, a Black Leopard. This is not the whole of who I am, I am also a Stallion. A large White Stallion, more than this, I have wings. Between the horse and the leopard, a whole lot of damage can be done. The horse will kick teeth in, while the leopard will rip the innards out of a body.

Perhaps these are those who walk with me, the White Stallion who flies on the left, and the Black Leopard who climbs on the right. Who will I stand with? The one who kicks shit, or the one who shreds it? Maybe I do not have to choose, maybe there be no need to kick and no need to shred, just maybe no one need be harmed and we all can just relax.
