Release the Dark Wound, Let Love Live

Published November 23, 2021 by tindertender

If we detach something from its source too soon, trying to force it to become what it is not yet ready or willing to become, we can unintentionally sap it of its strength and kill it. There is a dark wound in the consciousness of humanity which demands perfection and denies process. If you are thinking of publishers before you have even written the book, if you are comparing your unfinished song idea to the latest best-selling pop release, if you have decided you are not good enough or worthy enough to succeed before you’ve given it everything you’ve got and asked for divine help, then this dark wound has you in its grasp.

You have to let go of the death-grip of perfectionism and let yourself and your ideas live. Love is abundant, creative and inspiring. It moves us so much more joyously and creatively than fear. Honor the path of your own love – what inspires you, what feels exciting, joyful and perhaps even rather different? Let that live! Release the dark wounding of false belief. There are countless stories of vastly successful artists who very nearly binned the project that was making their career, because of the despair fostered by their own dark nature. They doubted. They were uncertain. Was their work any good? Was it useless? They struggled to believe in the right of a work to come to life, whether it was accepted, revered or rejected by others or not. They nearly lost their work to fear. Undoubtedly there have been many times when this has actually happened, and the work was not saved, not allowed to live. Do not let this happen to you. Whether something is meant to be a commercially-oriented venture or a more personal creation for your own therapeutic healing, it must be allowed to be, without judgement, without criticism, even without premature evaluation. It must be allowed to be what it is, and only time, love, patience and attention will reveal it.

Act on this immediately so that your path can continue under the protection of grace and wisdom.

Healing process ::
Say the declaration below out loud three times. Be in your heart and really feel what you are expressing.
I now choose of my own free will to release all cellular memories and belief systems based in the dark wound of criticism, judgement, shaming and fear, so that my creative, loving energy may thrive in a nourishing environment conducive to growth. Through all time and space, through all dimensions of my being, through unconditional love, so be it.

Affirmations ~ November 22, 2021

Neuroplasticity happens when connections are made across the neural network in our brain. Essentially, our brain creates super-highways that it travels quickly in response to outside stimuli. Thought patterns that are repeated often create massive highways that the thought travels on. The more the thought occurs, the more it will occur.

One of the most effective ways to reprogram the mind, to reformat the consciousness, is through using affirmative statements. I share with you examples that you may find helpful should you wish to use them to assist in reformatting the thinking mind.

Stand Up And Be Recognized

Published November 22, 2021 by tindertender

Behold! You are the inspiration you’ve been looking for.

I learned this, at least, by my experiment: that if one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours. ~ Henry David Thoreau

In the dance of life, sometimes you move toward your purpose, sometimes you move away, and when the stars align, you receive your reward. Outward recognition of an inward quest can be a jubilant affair, and yet, it can be its own challenge. If you’ve been focusing in the essence of the quest itself, for its own sake, not for the applause, ask yourself what you shall do with your ego during this time of recognition. There is nothing wrong with your ego getting a pat on the back, because it has come through this journey too, as a passenger not a driver. Recognition is code for resonance. It says that what you stand for rings a bell in peoples hearts and inspires them. The best part of this privilege is in being an inspiration for others to either join your quest or to reach deep within themselves and find their own raison d’etre.

Mantra ::
I am a powerful giver and receiver of recognition!

Seeing The True You

Published November 21, 2021 by tindertender

Sometimes we believe what others tell us we are, as though the self we see reflected back to us through their eyes is truth. Yet the accuracy of a reflection depends on the clarity of that which is doing the reflecting! If the receiver forms any opinion about what is perceived then what is reflected back to us will, at best, be distorted. It is not necessarily through ill will, it is just the mechanics of the situation. Even the moon reflects the sun in varying degrees of fulness and clarity. We can learn something of the nature of sun and moon, but not as much as through direct perception.

You have been putting rather too much faith in the reflections others have of you – to the point that you might not be honoring all that you are and all that you are becoming, because you believe too little of yourself.

There may be those around you that are able to reflect you more faithfully, and even help you to see more of your own greatness and beauty. These are the souls blessed with inner stillness. In the clear waters of their ocean of consciousness, you can come to recognize yourself with clearer perception. However, there are those who have not tended to their own ocean, and are unable to be still enough to genuinely receive and reflect your light back to you. There is no judgement here. Each takes the path of self-healing that is available and appropriate at any given time. However, to attempt to see the magnificence of a sun in a very partial moon doesn’t make too much sense.

If you are blessed with those in your life who can show you the beauty within you, wonderful. Begin the art of direct perception. This is the ability to recognize yourself not only in the eyes of others, but from how you feel about yourself, how you experience yourself and how you observe yourself (with compassion and kindness) from within. This is a step towards a radical empowerment that does not require perfection in order for you to recognize you are loveable and have much to offer. It is empowerment based on the acceptance of all that you are, working with your strengths, tending to your weaknesses and being loving, encouraging and nurturing of all that you perceive.

As you continue on this journey, you will not only see your human self, but the eternal within you. This is a breath-taking experience that opens you up to the creative energy that flows abundantly through all life! You are being nudged into that preparation, for when you have the experience of truly beholding yourself, all judgement, fear and doubt will fall away and you will just know yourself to be sacred. Then you will be asked to embrace the deeper journey of sacred rebellion against judgement and fear, and into passionate creativity and unconditional trust in life.

If you are getting confused about who you are and your motives or actions based on what others are saying or how they are responding to you, step back. In your quest to be a responsible person, you may be unintentionally taking on the feelings of others, making their reflections of you more than they are in truth. More often than not reflections are more about the state of the reflector that what is being reflected. Let those external perceptions go. Can you just acknowledge yourself? Do so and be free!

Healing process ::
Say with feeling, “I now break any contract I have ever made with another, consciously or unconsciously, that has given them power over me, power over my sense of self, the authority to approve or reject me or anything about me, including my voice, body, creativity, spirituality and way of living. Of my own free will, I now choose to directly perceive my own inner beauty and turn within with kindness and compassion to see myself though the eyes of unconditional love. So be it.”

Bring It Into Form

Published November 19, 2021 by tindertender

Beautiful dreamer, you can imagine wonderful worlds of light. You can dream up so many possibilities. Now it is time to bring those possibilities of light into the world. They need to be more than ideas. They need to live, to manifest. The world needs not only your dreams, beautiful as they are, but also your creations. Get thee to thy desk! Thy easel! Thy computer! Work, beautiful dreamer. Don’t just dream, create!

Honor yourself with a commitment to complete your inspired tasks. This will help you grow and that is a wonderful reason to commit. But, there is another reason too – you know that your inspired ideas are worth translating into practical forms so that other people can access them and experience something special too.

If you have been thinking about writing a book, painting a picture or acting on an inspiration or idea, do it. Now. Don’t dally or dither about the details or worry about how it is all going to work out. The universe loves a bold spirit. Once you take a step, it will rush toward you like an enthusiastic and chivalrous lover – opening doors, hand gently guiding your lower back – as you are moved forward. You will promptly be provided with all that is needed to take the next step.

There is sacrifice in translating the perfection of an idea into the limited physical form. Although something may be lost when turning a multi-dimensional concept of endless potential into something concrete, realize that there is much more to be gained. You must become free of this inspiration so that you can receive your next inspiration. It is already waiting for you. So, on you must go.

The information you need to translate your ideas into form will be provided according to the higher wisdom of life. It may or may not happen by traditional routes. Even if it seems unimaginable, when it is time for something to be born into form, nothing can stop it. It will happen!

Feel assured that your path of success is not going to unfolds according to the usual rules and regulations. It might happen in ways that surprise you and others, but it will happen. It is meant to be.

Mantra ::
I am energized and empowered to bring my ideas to life. I release any fear that they won’t live up to the perfection of my ideas or fantasies. I give them permission to become what they want to be, in service to life. In releasing these ideas into form, I open up to receive new ideas and inspirations. I am helped with this process through unconditional love, for the greater good. So be it.

After The Storm

Published November 18, 2021 by tindertender

There’s a thunderstorm about. It is either headed your way or just passing through now. Don’t make a thunderstorm mean more than what it is, though. You don’t have to fear it. You might even feel excitement about it. After all, a thunderstorm is just natures way of gathering energy together that needs to be released. With a release of tension, relief and freedom soon follow, often with a fresh perspective and perhaps the gift of a promising hopeful vision for your future.

Perhaps the particular storm building within you or around you is causing you to quake in your boots. It might be a storm of building emotions, threatening to erupt or already exploding, seemingly beyond your conscious control. You might feel and uncomfortable sense of emotional or psychological pressure within and if something doesn’t happen – and soon – you fear you might just burst! You may also sense that these are forces operating beyond your control. And you would be right.

There is, in life and in the creative process, a need to allow for wild storms. There will be those precious moments of peace beforehand and the release and revitalization that follows, yet the storm in the middle is essential! It is a natural part of the creative process. Without this building and releasing of energy, we would suffer from boredom and stagnancy. You may prefer the excitement of the storm, or the fresh, open feeling that accompanies its clearing. You may find it confronting to be faced with the power of something in which you can only participate, rather than control. Either way, the storm wisdom offers you the gift of bringing things to a head, and clearing them away, so that the energy can be freed from a pattern that has had its day, andis ready to become something new.

Sometimes the pressures that fuel the storms of our lives have been building up for a long time, without us being fully aware of it. It might be pressure from our own minds, creating unnecessary burdens upon us, such as burdens of fear or self-doubt. It could be pressure to appear a certain way, or to fight against life out of a mistaken belief that this is necessary for survival. Sometimes the pressure is little more than the impossible dream of perfection and a need to gently, or even with great dramatic flourish, cast that aside, so that you can dare to be what you are and create from your heart.

Even if you are not sure what the storm is about, don’t lose confidence in your ability to successfully bear its progression, until you are safely at the other side of the experience. Even among the chaos of change and in moments of anxiety, know that you have so much light and trust in your heart that you can see the storm is but a passing process, and notjing that need worry you.

If you cant sense the storm yet, it is coming, and you can, if you wish, feel the beautiful exhilarating gift of it, as you are empowered to cast aside what has been, and receive the gift of a fresh, new take on things. Your confidence is to remain intact – whatever is happening or soon will happen in your life, this storm of sorts, is transformational and supportive of your growth. It is going to clear away cobwebs and free you, open you, to new creative energy and life. Remember – there can be no rainbows without a little rain.

If you have been praying for help, your prayers have been heard and the great creative intelligence of our universe is responding to you, stepping in and shaking things up so that the situations can be sorted out according to a greater wisdom. So let go, hold only to your inner self and allow everything to be cleansed in the sacred storm.

Healing Process ::
Find a place where you can be alone and have some privacy, either inside or perhaps out in nature. When you are ready, repeat the following, where possible with your arms up and open to the sky.

Storms so wild
Storms of grace
I call your blessing
Into my heart now

May I release and let go
May I be revitalized and grow
I open up my heart
To you now

Storms of grace
I stand my ground
As I allow your magic
To cleanse and surround

Any outgrown energy
Which I no longer need
Anything which will sap
Or deplete rather than feed

Storms of grace
Merciful earth
With your help
I experience rebirth

When you have completed your declaration, simply place your hands in prayer at your heart and close your eyes for a moment. Breathe in and out and be aware of yourself, what you feel and what is happening in your body – from the top of your head to the soles of your feet.

Then say, “Through divine creative genius, this is now so.”
