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.

 

How Would I Live If … ?

In this world there is so much chaos, it is difficult to get in touch with our inner self, our higher self, and to listen to what is there.

I recently treated myself to a ‘float’ in a deprivation tank. It was 80 minutes long and time ceased to exist. It’s amazing how it just seems to stop when the senses are not bombarded with outside stimulus.

As I lay there in a shallow pool of water with 8,000 lbs of epson salt, gravity had no power over me, my mind was still with the exception of silent prayers as violet light pulsed in the darkness.

St. Germaine is said to be the carrier of the violet flame of healing, and I choose to believe that is exactly what was, and is, taking place … a great healing.

My recent aura photo is quite yellow! There seems to be a bit of concern over whether I’m ‘grounded’, I can tell you that there is much happening ‘behind the scenes’.

There are many theories behind the meaning of this … here is what some say …

“Aura colors are connected with divinity, aestheticism and spirituality. Yellow halo is considered as an active ‘brow chakra’. It is considered to be ruling the solar plexus or third chakra. It is the source of core energy and exists between navel and ribs in an individual’s body. A clear yellow aura circled around head in reflection of spiritual advancement. Yellow aura is a powerful denotation of religiousness, spirituality and enlightenment. It creates a sensation of brightness and warmth. The yellow aura around Buddha is a reflection of this enlightenment, spiritual success and joyful detachment from everything. Jesus, being encircled by yellow halo, emblems this divinity.”

YELLOW ~ Pertains to the spleen and life energy. It is the color of awakening, optimism, easy-going nature, inspiration and intelligence.

SHADES OF YELLOW ~ Pale Yellow – psychic and spiritual awareness, optimism, hopefulness, positivity. Bright Yellow – fear of losing control, respect, power struggles and control personally and in business. Clear Metallic Gold – spirituality activated, inspirational awakening.

Fascinating, really …

So the question remains, “How would I live if I actually listened to and followed the wisdom of my heart, mind and body?”

It is time to be still and get to the ‘heart’ of it.

Answer Yes, or No?

I bought a pendulum today. It seems it can hardly say anything but no, even my name isn’t what I thought it was, apparently.

Either it’s a lemon, or the answers I seek are secret. I feel I’m getting the distinct message that this ought not to be used by me for seeking answers.

I bought several books and other items to stage an alter for my indoor personal prayers and ‘callings’. Hopefully all that goes better than the pendulum work given by my new piece of art.

I went drumming today with a group of people I hadn’t seen in quite some time today also. Oh my goodness! The energies were moving at high speed! The drum keeper brought some cards and offered everyone in the group to choose one from the deck. I pulled “Tribal Spirit Dancer”. I felt like a Spirit Dancer! And later in the day I had a chance to read what my card actually meant.

Aaaaannnndddd … release. I danced like no one was watching. I made rain (sounds) and thunder too. I really love just letting loose with that which dwells inside me. Literally, the energy had me shaking on the inside, it was great!

Yesterday I bought some prayer beads, my first strand! Now I will create a few mantras that I will use (in my own language). I’m going to write them on a miniature scroll, roll it up and put it in a little bottle, then in a leather pouch I bought. I’ll wear it, or keep it handy for those times when I need to choose a particular mantra for a particular occasion. Some day I’ll have them memorized, but while I begin my practice, this will help.

Tools! Let us take advantage of the items we have available to us to hone our concentration skills. Meditation can be a challenge, the beads help keep focus in the moment.

With all the excitement today, I think I’ll break open one of my books … right after I finish reading The Emerald Tablets of Thoth, a few excerpts are as follows:

Talking about evil turns creative force upon it
and gives it life and actuality.

Fear should not be allowed to enter self.
Neither should we create fear in another for fear is bondage.

If within our hearts we have kindness, then those of like harmony are attracted to us.
If this is not the case, then that one is ruled by disorder.

Love is the beginning and the end of the path, for in love lies oneness.

True greatness does not require self praise. Let others acknowledge your greatness which is recognized by your attitude toward your fellowman.

Strife, hatred and fear are the results of darkness. Freedom from darkness eliminates these.

Wisdom comes only to those who seek her.
You must take the first step and then continue to walk forward.

Man is not truly of the Earth or material but, in the final analysis, is the divine fire itself. The soul of man is a divine fire, a flame cast forth from the great fire yet still one with it. Light in darkness is man, yet separate in power and order.

The prayer is really a command and is for the purpose of establishing a harmony or connection between soul or consciousness and the cosmic consciousness.

 

 

Fate … Or Destiny?

Did you know you came here for the distinct purpose of
bringing calm to the world?

Your gentle presence brings soothing to angry hearts and minds. Your journey thus far may have been one in which you retreated to center and built solid relations with Spirit, learning to trust the inner voice of wisdom, and the messages that come with it.

You have tendency to rejoice in the success of others. You’re true to your inner self, clean and pure, and give credit where credit is due.

When it seems like you’re spinning wheels, getting nowhere, remember … you do not have to sacrifice anything on the alter of pride. The past may have cast long shadows over your life, but there’s still time to move toward the new dawn.

Stay clear. You must stay calm in the face of irritation. Stay on course through the storms of life.

Give freely, and undoubtedly, you will receive. You are able to fulfill your life’s ambitions. Instinctively you are in the right place at the right time. Wisdom controls your five senses and helps you to perfect good deeds.

It can be tempting to just let emotion rage unchecked. Yet, by now, you are fully aware the affect of living this method. It is chaotic … and not in line with the purpose of bringing peace to life.

Early on, you may have been self-centered. Life probably kicked you a few times, even when you were already down. These experiences were necessary to show you how much strength you possess, and when you finally (if you have not already) begin to see outside your own experiences, you will see those same experiences in others.

You have knowledge and practice on how to lift the gloom, and utilize energy in the most efficient manner to bring good, and harmony, for self and for others. You are a much needed way-shower, living and teaching by example.

While many cry out, “This is my fate and there is nothing I can do about it”, You know full well that Destiny is in the palm of our own hands, and our creation. You also have the skills and experience to show others this truth.

Thank you, for being you. 
Thank you, for sharing your sturdy acquirement with us all.
Your gifts are like rippling waters, and will reach many.
Good medicine.

Wild One

Wild One

Wild One,
I see you
Quivering beneath that old skin
Draped in shoulds and oughts,
Wearing that false smile,
The one that says
“Yes of course I will…’
Before you set yourself aside
And conform to that safe, known, shape
Of appropriate ‘She’

Wild One
I hear you
Growling in the night,
When your passion wakes you,
Ready to rip his skin or yours
As the truth burning fires of awareness
Blaze their intensity into your mind
Laying bare your compromises
Stripping the lies you tell yourself
Refusing to stay that safe known shape
Of appropriate ‘She’

Wild One
I feel you,
As the dawn breaks
And the false floor and tight smile
Give way to grit, grief and remembering,
That deep, fluid, undulating pulse,
That nectar heart, that moist knowing,
That sweet longing and clarity so bright
They blind you to that safe known shape
And memory,
Of appropriate ‘She’

Wild One
I need you
Ready to shed your fear and thrive,
Ready to feel incandescently alive
Uncensored majesty of womankind
Embodying the grace of the sensually sublime
Receiver of nature’s subtle melodies
Vivid, ageless, honest and free
I stand for you, and you stand for me
The redefined expression
Of appropriate ‘She’

Are We Listening?

Published April 14, 2018 by tindertender

The question, “Where has all the beauty gone?” is asked by many, perhaps even you.

The truth is, we have created what we now see, by disconnecting our hearts from each other, by holding tightly to what we ‘own’, attempting to keep others from taking that which keeps us in comfort.

The fear around loss, the greed and selfishness it births in the mind and life, are killers to society.

Matthew 16:26 ~ For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world and forfeits his soul? Or what shall a man give in return for his soul?

Love, Connection, Compassion, Care, Joy ~ If these are the things you wish to see amplified in the world, you must begin by creating them in your own heart. It is difficult to lay down past conditioning, however it is absolutely do-able, with effort.

The Will is strong.

What reality will you birth into life? It affects us all, yes … you are powerful.
