These are times to generate NEW habits … ones that are actually chosen in our adult lives. One of my new ones is drinking water every time a thought form I do not desire enters mind, and I sing a little diddy …
Coming into love for self is a challenge, for most of we have been taught that to consider self as deserving or sacred is selfish …. that we ought to think of others before self.
As the training goes, and as experience tells us, when we deplete our inner resources by constantly filling anothers cup (or others), our own cup becomes depleted.
From a state of depletion, depression occurs, anger happens, even hopelessness …..
The selfless, nurturing the selfish …. it is a form of vampirism that we all participate in, or have at one time.
The human must do what is necessary to ensure the personal, inner cup always be in a state of overflow in order to share, and fill, others cups.
This means self-care is crucial to our existence. Self-love, self-respect, self-care …. taking time with GAIA … she always replenishes us.
Spending time in prayer … not as the church teaches it … but as our Soul and Spirit call us to do.
Yesterday I spent my day drumming, singing and dancing … men played out the heartbeat, drumming in unison, women stood behind them as all sang prayers to Creator for the health, happiness and well-being of our brothers and sisters, our family.
The energy was high, my body electrified as I danced around the drummers and singers, lifting the prayers to Creator, to the very heavens and all who hear.
We shared a community meal, we spoke to each other in a soft way, we listened to each other, leaving behind the chaos of the city … of the square world … and we spent the day in sacred union, one with another, in love, care, compassion.
Release was shared, and blessings given. Two exchanged feathers and their relationship will be observed by the family (all members) for one year and at the end of this time, if everyone approves of their care for one another, they will be wed in the sacred ceremony of the Cherokee.
Observe to what you apply your attention and energy to.
Will this situation benefit from my sacred care and contribution for wellness, for happiness?
Or will the receiver use it up and demand more without care or reciprocation?
Our time and attention are the currency of our Spirit, our Soul. It is the most precious gift you can impart to this world and life within it.
Be certain you pay yourself first.
Your cup must remain full, your mind, body, spirit and soul requires that you care for self prior to assisting others … if not, your capacity to do good dwindles, and you become vulnerable to all the negative side effects of an empty cup.
Do not think that someone will come along and fill it for you.
This is our personal responsibility.
So I implore you …. practice self-love and self-care.
Helping others will be so much easier and more powerful when you have plenty to share … and remember … self-care, self-love, is a continuous, evolving process.
It is time to develop new, healthier habits.
Release the old ways … recognize the Sacred in you.
I received my book today, The Ra Material, by Ra, Law of One, book one.
I learned something new.
In an Infinite Creator, there is only Unity. The only way to view infinity is by calling it Unity. All is one.
Infinite Creator energy is a whole. When humanity is viewed by this group called Ra, our energy Imprint on this earth is viewed as a whole.
The looters? The chaos makers, the murderers and rapists, all of those who do crime and harm in all its forms and indeed, those who would like to, but do not … that energy, if it out-ways its polar opposite will be seen as the energy of the whole of humanity by those without, looking in.
This is why it is crucial to maintain a calm demeanor.
Speak to each other civilly, respectfully.
Stop destroying our neighbors and their stuff.
Stop taking what isn’t ours, (in its many forms).
We can’t just write each other off and think that makes it better. No, we must heal the energetic rift, we must make effort to make amends, and keep the line of communication open … to family, friends, neighbors, the guy holding a sign on the street.
Our responsibility to this world and to each other, and to our race, is to care, and show it brightly.
Even if it can only be our heart that sings to each other, let it sing, let it shine from your eyes with a smile upon your lips.
Acknowledge each other. Do it as a friend would.
If we want our GROUP ENERGY FORM to be bright, we must stop acting like thugs and all around a-holes.
Lately, I’ve made it a specific intention that I notice my self-talk, and when negative, instantly (or as soon as I recognize it) “re-do” the comment with something of a positive nature.
I am honestly surprised at how many of these nearly invisible phrases show up. I consider myself someone who has done a lot of inner work, yet recently have discovered I’m on the next level … the next ‘cycle’ where it seems that I’ve regressed in some ways, but no … it is the beginning of next cycle.
Choice has it … and I have choice. Will I continue the journey on the same path as previous, or will I move forward. And perhaps, moving forward sometimes feels like regression, only because it has occasional similar traits as the previous cycle, or experience.
Progress ~ It can be difficult to spot if one is too involved in beating ones self up because of the perception of no forward (or ‘upward’) momentum.
Recognize your cycles. Don’t get hung up on the details, note the larger picture of progression and you will see it more clearly.
Just today I caught myself, and thankfully, it is getting easier, quicker, to see.
“You already finished it … you dork!”
Immediately I caught that I had called myself a dork. (NEVER speak harshly or negatively to yourself about self, not even if you are ‘joking’).
“You are SO efficient you’ve already completed that project, you’re amazing!”
**Multi-tasking … it can getcha every once and again**
Yet through it all, remember to pay attention to your talk, external as well as internal. That’s where it all begins, after all.
And as you know, internal dialogue is one of the loudest!
Decided to go for a joy ride despite there not being much “sunshine” in the day. It was still pretty amazing. Nature never ceases to impress me.
As I think about “new growth” I am reminded that growth, no matter the kind, is emotionally challenging, even physically challenging, but the most difficult is the energetic challenge, for it is charged by emotion and past negative conditioning. The nervous system rebels against change like a dying life form.
Do you think that our ‘mental condition’ (or life form) rebels every time there is change? Could this be why people are walking triggers much of the time? Because we are all constantly in a state of flux … never really ‘settled’?
When change comes, how does your body respond? Your mind? Do you find yourself tensing up? Pushing back? Rebelling?
To embrace change is a challenge all in itself. The pit of the stomach might feel like vomiting all over the place, your mind might be screaming in a mental agony, you may cry and holler to god or whomever you choose to make it stop, to keep it the same, to just make the uneasiness end, and comfort to once more be the base you find yourself in.
Unfortunately, when change comes, there is no thwarting it. Fight it as we may. (I know I am).
So, how do we ease our minds?
Personal Suggestions (may not be for all people):
1) Do not drink alcohol
2) Do not abuse drugs
3) Do not smoke (it dirties the energy, making one susceptible to energetic ‘attachments’)
4) Eat clean foods. Choose nearby, open farm raised meats if you eat it, and eggs and shop at local farmers markets when able.
5) Breathe intentionally. If anxiety or some stressful energy comes over, breathe, methodically, in and then out until eased. (Try a six second in breath, and a 6 second out breath.)
It is important that we support our bodies, our minds, especially in these times. We may not be able to gather, but Nature can replenish our supply. Let it.
It is also important we start supporting our local communities in other ways.
The days of frivolous behaviors are being left behind. It WILL cause discomfort, for the change will be great.
May inner fortitude and courage be yours as we transition into this new era.
