Electromagnetism

You are an electromagnetic being emitting a frequency only those things that are on the same frequency as the one you are emitting can come into your experience. Every single person, event, and circumstance in your day is telling you what frequency you are in.

The Universe responds to your frequency. It does not recognize your personal desires, wants or needs. It only understands the frequency in which you are vibrating. If you are vibrating in the frequency of fear, guilt or shame, you are going to attract things of a similar vibration to support that frequency. If you are vibrating in the frequency of love, joy and abundance, you are going to attract things that support that frequency. It’s like tuning into a radio station. You have to be tuned into the station you want to listen to, just like you have to be tuned into the energy you want in your life. People with good/pure souls don’t just appear in our lives. Once you reach a higher vibrational life and let go of all the things that are spiritually weighing you down, you will naturally start to align.

Whenever you are with someone notice how you feel. Do you feel guarded, sad and/or uncomfortable? That’s a sign you maybe you shouldn’t spend that much time with them. If you feel light, comfortable, safe and happy it’s most likely a sign that this person is good for you.

Energy is my first language. I understand it more than I do words. You might as well be who you are because your vibes are going to tell the truth anyway.

As your vibration raises, forces will come to work against you. [They] are afraid of your power. Your spiritual awakening scares [Them]. Your job is to keep lifting. Because everything comes as a result of your vibes.

We Have A Choice

Published June 17, 2020 by tindertender

It is apparent governments, or at least the one in my country, is steering us toward mass vaccinations and chipping.

Pretty sure this is happening to us world-wide.

Will the people choose the light?

Or will they allow politicians and scientists to shut it down once more, leaving the mind in the dark, and us feeling alone … with the suffering inflicted by lifetime politicians?

“The solar system turns without thine aid, Live, die! The universe is not afraid.”
~ Israel Zangwill

“Remote, yet near, unutterably aged, lone,
He sits within the temple’s inner shrine, with folded hands and countenance divine,
Omniscient, inscrutable, unknown.”

~ G.F.Williamson

“But what thing dost thou now,
Looking Godward, to cry,
I an I, thou art thou,
I am low, thou art high?
I am thou, who thou seekest to find him.
Find thou but thyself, thou art I.

O my sons, O too dutiful
Towards Gods not of me,
Was I not enough beautiful?
Was it hard to be free?
For behold, I am with you and in you and
of you; look forth now, and see.”

~ Hertha, by Algernon C. Swinburne

“If thou would’st hear the Nameless, and wilt dive
Into the Temple-cave of thine own self,
There, brooding by the central altar, thou
May’st haply learn the Nameless hath a voice,
By which thou wilt abide, if thou be wise.”
~ Alfred Tennyson

“Because I had forsaken unity with thee,
Because I, fool, had made my body me,
Because I did not know thee who didst dwell in me,
Therefore I wandered through raging hells …
Because I threw away my very self, I therefore was in chains.”
~ an old Indian writing

“Turning away from the world,
I have forgotten both caste and lineage,
My weaving is now in the infinite silence.
Kabir, having searched and searched himself,
Hath found God within him.”

~ Kabir

“His death in Benares
Won’t save the assassin
From certain hell,
Any more than a dip
In the Ganges will send
Frogs—or you—to paradise.
My home, says Kabir,
Is where there’s no day, no night,
And no holy book in sight
To squat on our lives.”

~ Kabir

“We cannot kindle when we will
The fire which in the heart resides;
The Spirit bloweth and is still
In mystery the soul abides.”
~ Matthew Arnold

A Big TRUTH Day

Published May 7, 2020 by tindertender
Shadow: See the Truth

Do not be deceived. Be watchful and mindful of the illusions others weave around themselves, and that you may weave around yourself. Know the night. Understand the shadows. See though the darkness to the light of the truth. Pay attention to contradictions. Notice when action and words are not in harmony. Hone your intuition and insight so that you may know the minds and hearts of those around you – and yourself – and trust in the wisdom born of that awareness.

Soul: See the Signs

We are often sent small signs in the form of synchronicities and coincidences. Be watchful. Do not overlook them in the everyday rush of life. Words, numbers, and symbols that repeat, animals and birds that appear on your path, people who come in and out of your life at odd or similar moments, and those flashes of knowing when you believe something will happen with every fiber of your being – these are all things you are meant to see and hear; messages from Gaia and Great Spirit sent to aid your journey.

Let the Two become One: Reveal your Truth

When you were born, your soul shone bright. As you grew, you were taught of right and wrong. You were taught how to think, how to live, how to believe in a way that makes you fearful to say no. To disagree is to risk alienation from family and society, and so you hide your true thoughts and feelings behind a mask. That mask hides your light. Cast it aside. Embrace and live your truth, and let your soul shine once more.

Moving Forward

Inspiration

Do not let go of the dreams, ideals, and creativity of youth. Whatever is happening, you’re able to keep the clarity and objectivity of your dreams alive.

The Guardian King of the West

His time is evening, and the element he guards is Fire. He is seen holding a symbol of enlightened mind (stupa) in his right hand and a snake in his left. The stupa reminds us that in order to grow toward enlightenment, we have to grasp and overcome conflicting emotions.

Cloudform

You have the potential for energy that will enable the completion of any action. This is a time of focusing and accomplishing your aims. You’re ready to take off in a new direction, unbound by heavy baggage. You can successfully direct your energies toward new efforts. You have the energy to achieve your goals.

The Space Dragon

The highest wisdom is often the simplest. You have the potential to develop pure consciousness. The wisdom that you seek is transcendental – no matter how far you’ve come on this journey, you know that there’s no rush and that patience now means everything. You help others to find stillness.

Passion’s Fire

You are a genuine character of magnetism and ardent love, with the capacity to experience intense emotion and the fulfillment of your desires. You’ve reached a stage in your life where you’re comfortable with yourself – what others see is what they get! Your honesty attracts people to you. You’re now an emotional warrior, unafraid to face the trials and tribulations of life.

Clarity

You are the stillness in the midst of turmoil, with inner knowingness and acceptance. You’re becoming stable and calm and developing the ability to see through the curtain of your own and others’ emotions. You’re steady and at peace. This energy flows out from you and affects the well-being of others without your realizing it.

Connections

You have the quality of complete openness, absolute potential. You are connected to all beings. Everything is linked by the vastness of space. You feel connected to all of life. You’re developing empathy for all beings and are beginning to understand others. You’re now noticing people’s similarities more than their differences and realizing that you’re at the dawning of your own conscious awakening.

Whispers on the Wind

This is the inner voice of wisdom, the ability to trust the intuitive messages from within. Your mind is able to flow effortlessly on your spiritual journey. Your resulting actions are spontaneous and appropriate in all situations. You’re true to your inner self, clean and pure. Out give credit where it’s due and don’t sit in judgment of others. Rather, you rejoice in their successes.

Guardian King of the East

His time is dawn, and the element he guards is Water. He is seen playing gentle music on his lute, which soothes the angry mind and brings calm to the world.

The Ring of Fire

We must remember the boundary between our unbridled passions and the Higher Self. You’re emotionally steady and not following your passions headlong into lustful entanglements. You have the ability to steer your passions in an artful and creative way without consuming others with your fire.

The Guardian King of the North

His is midnight, and the element he guards is Air. He is seen holding a mongoose, which is spitting jewels in his left hand, and a banner of victory over the most deadly emotions in his right hand.

God Is A Verb ~ What Is The Soul?

Published April 26, 2020 by tindertender

Excerpts from Kabbalah and the practice of mystical Judaism ~ by rabbi David A. Cooper

Imagine you have a pure light shining within. If you close your eyes, you get a hint of this light glowing deep inside your being. Then say to yourself, “No matter what I may feel about myself, I know that I have a pure soul.”

The next step in this practice is to gently acknowledge that every person we encounter has a pure soul. Every time we see someone, we say quietly to ourselves, “There is a pure soul; there is another pure soul.” Notice that the person could be sweet and amenable, or could have an abrasive personality. It does not matter. The soul of every being is pure. If we continue this practice for everyone we meet, including those in whose presence we have negative feelings, the ways we relate to ourselves and to others will be dramatically affected. As simple as it seems, this exercise opens our hearts.

…………………………………………………..

According to Isaac Lucia, there are fundamental divisions of soul types, such as between Cain and Abel. Whereas the simple reading of the story in Genesis is that Cain murders Abel, the esoteric reading is that each represents primordial Force. Abel represents chesed, the force of expansion; Cain represents gevorah, the force of contraction.

The unfolding of creation is the process of a continuous struggle between opposite poles; light and dark, give and take, up and down, right and left, life and death. The contention between Cain and Abel is the first of many descriptions in the Bible of the ongoing strain between opposing forces.

The Kabbalah of Luria says clearly that the goal for all of creation continues to be the fulfillment of Adam and Eves original task. First we must reinstate the awareness of the Garden of Eden, and then our charge is to redeem fallen sparks so that the universe rises to the next level: messianic consciousness.

…………………………………………………..

The soul in Jewish mysticism is one of the more essential aspects of creation itself. Just as the physical universe could not exist without energy, the spiritual dimension is based upon “soul-matter”. The kabbalistic viewpoint, of course, is that we could not have an inverse without the spiritual realm, and thus we could say that one of the pillars upon which creation rests is the soul.

…………………………………………………..

When we think about the soul, we have a tendency to embody it in some way. We give it an identity: my soul, your soul. We view it as an entity that is somehow connected to the body. Some say it arrives at birth; others say it arrives during gestation or at the moment of conception. Everyone agrees that the soul departs at death. During life it is with us; but perhaps sometimes it is other places as well. We are not sure where it goes after we die, but some say they know.

Linking the soul to an identity is a mistake because it requires a sense of separation. This is like saying that the electricity needed to power a home is distinct from its source at the generator plant. When we see an electrical appliance working, should we assume that the electricity belongs to it? Is the electricity in one toaster distinct from the electricity in the toaster in the adjacent home? Obviously, the electricity does not belong to any of the homes in question, for when the power at the main plant shuts down, every home in the neighborhood turns off.

So too with souls. There is a soul principle, a “great soul”, that embodies all souls.

A survey of religious and philosophical literature in Judaism shows that there are widely divergent points of view concerning the soul. The soul cannot be explored without delving into the mysteries of the purpose of life, reward, punishment, death, heaven, and hell. This may be why the soul is a subject that seems to cause an intellectual rash. One has the sense that a great deal of itching is going on when a philosopher or theologian discusses the soul.

Mystics, however, discuss the soul with disregard for logic, consistency, or concern about agreement with any accepted system. This is because a mystic “experiences” other realities and therefore has no doubt regarding their existence. Moreover, because these realities are not completely disconnected from material reality we see in front of our eyes, the conclusion is clear: some aspect of our material world mediates between realities. Thus, we could say that the soul is a medium that dissolves boundaries of consciousness.

…………………………………………………..

Love is the Souls Sister

We can appreciate the soul better when we get to know her sister. Just as the soul transcends the limits of time and space, so does her sister: love. Does love have time boundaries? Can we give love shape? Sometimes it may seem to have qualities when we put limits on it. In fact, in some situations, we are able to feel the symptoms of love. But this is transient, and love remains intermediate, unbounded, timeless, and completely beyond our comprehension.

Love can be viewed as a unity, a ubiquitous oneness. Yet we experience love in its multiplicity: paternal love, maternal love, romantic love, passionate love, divine love, familial love, brotherly love, and so forth. Each of these expressions of love has a different quality. Each is its own reality.

Would you like to explain love to someone? How does it work? Why doesn’t it always work that way? How do we measure it? You mean we can never determine what pulls people together or what drives them apart? Of course, Love is a mystical experience. That is why it is called the soul’s sister.

Does the fact that we cannot explain love mean that it does not exist? Of course not. We all experience love. Soul is exactly like this. It transcends all limits of consciousness.

The Language of the Soul

Here are a few exercises that help us uncover the way the soul can be experienced. Each exercise can be done in less than five minutes. Pick any one of them.

1) Imagine yourself holding a newborn infant in your arms. Its eyes are open. You know that these eyes cannot focus, but they are looking straight into your own. Close your eyes and take two or three minutes to imagine this look and discover what it feels like.

2) Imagine you are holding an egg that has a live chick in it. Your hands are under a heat lamp, and you can feel the tap-tap of the chick trying to get out. Allow yourself to cradle this egg, feel the movement within, and imagine that as you hold the egg, the chick slowly breaks through the shell to freedom. Close your eyes and feel what this is like.

3) Try to remember the first time you felt that you were falling in love. Do you remember the physical experience? Did it affect your sense, the way you saw things, the way things tasted? What about falling in love was different from your normal, daily life? Let yourself dwell in this memory for a few minutes.

4) Imagine that you have finally met the wisest being that ever lived, whoever that may be. It may have been someone known, or someone completely hidden. In your imagination, notice what it would feel like to be this person. What question would you like to ask this person? Imagine what answer the person might give to your question.

To attune ourselves, we need to broaden our range and let go of preconceived notions. We must learn to hear, see, feel every nuance of our moment-to-moment experience. The language of the soul lives at the edges of thought, or behind it. It is symbolic, metaphoric, poetic. There is always hidden meaning just a little out of reach. It does not matter that we are unable to grasp it with our minds because another part of us is touched, and this is sufficient.

Despite the limitations of our subjective truth, Kabbalist’s believe that via the soul, we get information from other realities. The way we attune to other realities is by using contemplative methods to pierce the veils that obscure our degree of awareness.

Utilizing Sacred Creator Energies

Published April 24, 2020 by tindertender

Do you feel as though the world is dumping on your head? Always receiving more and more pain and sorrow? Have you forgotten to look for the tiny bright spots in the day?

If you speak of what you don’t want, rather than what you want, you will create what you do not want, for this is where you are putting the energy … speaking of it, and mentally trying to pushing it away, only brings it closer to you. (Not doing this is easier said that done, trust me, I know).

I am aware there are many who are suffering more than I currently, and there are also many who are doing much better as far as necessities and desires coming true.

When we are down, and I mean really down, dragging ourself along the pavement, hoping by some miracle someone will come along and pick us up, we must be resilient. Not only in thought, but in what we choose to see and fill our mind with.

Ask yourself … Is there anything, anything at all in this moment to be grateful for?

It’s easy to get stuck at the bottom of a mental well … look for those holding spots, feel around in your mind, find them.

You may have to enter deeply into the mind and heart in the midst of this chaos, pain and fear so prevalent in the world today.

It is said we have everything we need within us to get through hard times. I imagine it is up to each individual to find this treasure within them. It could take some serious chipping away at layers and layers of blockages that have been constructed due to previous experiences.

These layers must be shed now. Especially now, while we are in our homes, pondering what life means to us.

Become your best friend.

Love YOU.
