Card For Today

the-word-wants-to-be-written

Our card for today, Friday, September 30th, is taken from the Sacred Rebels Oracle – The Word Wants To Be Written.

What does each of us have inside us that is seeking expression? What is it that we are trying to come to terms with? One of the best ways that I have found to deal with just about anything is to write about it in my journal. We can talk to our friends and family about things, but even if they understand, often times they are giving us their advice on what they would do in the same situation. Sometimes writing it out will help bring clarity to the situation and help us to make a decision. Or maybe it’s just that we need to work through some emotion we are feeling. If something has triggered us to be angry or sad, then it helps to write that down; what was the trigger, what was our reaction to it, and why did we react the way we did? Journaling can bring clarity and insight to many areas of our lives.

Something else we should be doing, if we are not, and that is keeping a gratitude journal. If we can write a few things that we are grateful for each day, then it helps us to see that as hard as life may seem at the moment, we always have something to be grateful for. Journaling also works in helping us manifest the reality we want to create for ourselves and for the world. If we write down the things we want to have in our lives like friends, or love, or a great job, etc., putting it out there in the form of the written word helps bring it into our reality. One of the ways to do that is to say something like “I have a great job”, or “I have good friends” or “I am loved”. You can be more specific by describing the job or the partner, but you get the idea, and keep doing it until what you are hoping for shows up.

So no matter what we are going through, or what it is we want in our lives, the word wants to be written.

Have a great weekend everyone! ~Namaste~

The Dark Side of Being Light

By Robin Lee on Monday January 11th, 2016

DarkSideBeingLight-exploding

Shadows are inevitable on the path of spiritual illumination

Stay strong
You brilliant
Compass
You are
Guiding yourself
Home.

There’s a point at which you start to feel that the enormity of things is so unbelievable, you wonder how you’d ever been walking around at all. With eyes held so tightly; slivers, before. How on earth did the light get in? How did you ever arrive where you are?

Perhaps, in being led towards the heat.

Rings of fireStepping into a fire

Spiritual practice

Developing any kind of spiritual practice, anything that brings you greater awareness of yourself and your relationship to the world around you, is a process of stepping into a fire and allowing the flames to eat you whole. It is not gentle. It even seems unkind.

There is rage, there is fear, there is fury. There are days when you may feel unable to move or, sometimes, breathe. In these moments, one cannot fathom how there is anything left to do but let go.

And that’s exactly when it begins.

The rise of spirituality

It’s a beautiful thing to see spirituality flooding into the media en masse. Great spiritual teachers and seekers are rising up in profound, modern, and thoroughly authentic ways.

For so many of us, seeing these lighthouses appear is a welcome sign from our seemingly endless days at sea.

We are often brought to creating our own spiritual practice, whatever that may look like, by a period of inner and outer turmoil so unbearable we believe we are being torn very slowly into fragments.

Part of this is true, we are being torn, to be fed to the fire. Part of this is not true — it’s not unbearable, because we only receive that which we need to grow and expand.

The contrast is that in our seeking, we believe we have found wholeness. As if it was outside of us all along. The answer. We think, great, I can meditate and have conscious sex and drink green juice and I will slowly diminish my experience of negativity and pain.

I will forget about my secret impulse to self-destruct. I will forget about my insecurity. I will disregard the truth about my identity.

Forgetting things doesn’t make them disappear. Pretending to not feel doesn’t mean you can’t. Someday, you will, and you will feel everything. It will not stop. It will not cease coming, it will only grow in intensity, and it will beckon you to the edges of your sanity.

And that’s exactly when it begins.

Moth to the lightFlocking to the light

Led to the light

After an initial period of flocking to the light like a moth on a warm summer evening, we tend to realize that no matter how venerable our guru or preferred practice, much of this path is to be walked alone.

When we fail to realize this, we are often catapulted into situations which isolate us, exactly for this reason. Life won’t baby us. She’ll demand that we show up.

The process of being led to the light, of waking up as so many of us like to say, is not simply becoming more luminous. I’d love to see that idea detonate. It is also the process of getting very intimate with the dark, ravenous, insatiable heaviness inside of you.

Freud’s death drive. The Kali aspect of your Shakti. The brink of your humanity which wishes to experience it’s temporality in all ways — blissful and devastating.

The more we practice, the more we realize that the more we let the light in, the more the darkness will arrive, exist, and grow to bring contrast. Denying it causes a lot of mania.

Wall of darknessThe more we let the light in, the more the darkness will arrive

Underneath a façade of purity there is always a deeper story. The whole point is to experience balance, and we can’t get there by sweeping our old stories under the rug. They have to be transmuted. Alchemized. Used as kindling. The darkness. We have to look at it.

When we continually push it away, judge it, or believe it to not be aligned with our path (often read: who we think we are) it only grows in power and presence. A real-life example for me was reconciling my sexual energy with my yogic dedication.

In retrospect, it’s hilarious to me that I ever believed I would subdue a part of myself that is not only not dark but also entirely yogic. And also, a core part of me. I let go.

And that’s exactly when it began.

Shadow self

There is a long history of study of the shadow self. This subject often gets a lot of flak, and likely because people want to focus on the positive aspects of growth. Can’t blame them.

What happens when we ignore the parts of us that we are afraid to look at, is that we become slaves to that master. We hide a secret that we think no one can see. They can.

It grows and grows, and becomes fear, guilt, shame, terror, anxiety. The pangs of which you may not wish on your worst enemy.

I have this vision often, when I am facing something truly terrifying, of being just above water, and consciously, making the choice to submerge. Dark, choppy, ocean. An adventure to the depths. It guides me in these instances.

Falling into darknessMaking the choice to submerge into being light

I remember how small whatever I’m up against is in contrast to the vastness of my life. I remember that my darkness intrigues me, because I allow it to. I want to know myself fully. I want to love every corner. I want to meet people who love every corner.

You can sort of sense it, when you meet someone authentic. They’re tapped into this. They’re unafraid of being a hot mess. Of being too much. Of having a vulnerability hangover.

They really don’t give a f*ck, because they recognize that darkness is part of being human, and they are okay with baring their humanity to the world. In a society focused on continual upward mobility, it’s no surprise that so much success is built on artifice and lack of depth.

The more we reject the notion that it is okay to have darkness, and that these part of us are not less likeable, loveable, or spiritual — in fact, they make us more so — the more we venture down the path of being half-human.

The darkness is real, it’s not going away, but once you look at it, it becomes something else: the canvas upon which the cosmos are born. Choosing to be half-human means denying yourself the possibility of exploring the furthest reaches of the universe.

I’m not sure about you, but I came here to be full-human.

And that’s exactly where it begins.

Four Reasons Taking One For The Team Will Soon Stop ~ Michelle Walling

Our Shifting Perspective

by Michelle Walling, CHLC
Guest writer, In5D.com

Starseeds that are the forerunners of ascension are getting up once again from the result of the waves of energies that came through in huge waves in September. Those of us that “take one for the team” are wondering when the hell we are going to be done with this empathetic transmutation for the collective. Those who are experiencing emotional drama and fatigue are now awakening to why they seem to have taken one step backward, when in fact they are now getting ready to leap into a new reality.

The connected collective called humanity

We are all connected by threads of silvery energetic fibers that weave a magical web of embodiment as a collective. Each person on the planet is connected whether they realize it or not. As we move through ascension energies, anything that needs to be transmuted has…

‘Amping Up’ Life Force Flow through Spiritual Renewal by DL Zeta

Spiritual purpose plays an important role in creating health. There are ways to amp up the amount of life force energy flowing into your life. It’s the flow of life force flowing into one’s life that determines the realities that can be accessed.

With each year that passes, there’s either a moving toward the realization of the deepest longing of one’s soul or a moving away from it. Those who have taken their meaning solely from the outer world will begin to notice an empty feeling that is often accompanied by a physical breakdown over time. By contrast, those who have built a bridge to higher consciousness will experience renewal and rejuvenation that allows them to exude a vitality and timelessness as they grow older.

Life force energy arrives proportionate to the amount that’s needed. Those who make an effort to discover their spiritual mission and carry it out in whatever means available receive the life force energy needed to do this. By contrast, those who retreat into illusion, seeking only the comfort of distraction and entertainment, suffer a stagnancy that shuts down the flow of life force energy over time.

When life force energy is shut down or stagnant for long periods, the physical body starts to “amp down,” and the spirit begins to withdraw from the life. At the physical level, you can measure life force in terms of the oxygenation of cells. A lack of oxygen most always results in physical disease. This is the physical explanation for disease that reflects the spiritual withdrawal of life force energy from the body.

The good news is that regardless of how far a person has traveled off course, regardless of the current state of a person’s physical being, this energy can most always be turned around through spiritual renewal.

12 Steps to Creating Spiritual Renewal

We offer here 12 steps for creating spiritual renewal:

1) Identify your life purpose and ask your guides to reveal to you the steps to fulfilling this purpose. If you don’t know yet what your life purpose is, begin reading the energy of your entire life to look for clues. Write your autobiography and examine the energy and essence of all major milestones. Everything that has ever been created in your life has been designed to carry you further into the realization of this purpose. Make lists of your strengths and weaknesses, the things you love, your talents, and your deepest desires. These are further clues to the nature of your life purpose.

2) Set aside time each day for silence and meditation.

3) Learn to still your mind by practicing concentration skills. Concentrating the attention on a candle flame for 10 minutes each day while releasing all thoughts will help still and focus the mind.

4) Eat a diet that consists of primarily living foods.

5) Fast periodically to clean and detox the body and help release yourself from over involvement in the physical world.

6) Develop your intuition. Recording and interpreting your dreams each day is a good way to begin developing intuition. Also, make a practice of listening to the still, small voice within you and observe how the information it offers assists you throughout your day.

7) Create a list of the 10 things you most dearly desire to create and ask your guides to show you steps you can take to begin creating these desires now. Look to see how each item on your Ten Most Wanted list is aligned with your life purpose.

8) Have a goal, purpose, and activity for everything you do.

9) Engage in some sort of physical activity each day. It is especially beneficial to incorporate physical activity such as yoga that unifies mind, body and spirit.

10) Make time each day for creative play. Write in a journal, paint, take a long walk in nature. Do what gives you joy.

11) Find some way to share your gifts and talents with others.

12) Clear clutter in your life. Clean out closets, drawers, your house, car, and everywhere unused items accumulate. Release everything you no longer need. This includes old feelings you may be holding onto. Practice gratitude and forgiveness and release the past so you can step more fully into the present moment.

Card For Today

all-that-glitters

Our card for today, Wednesday, September 28th, is taken from the Wisdom of the Oracle Divination Cards – All That Glitters – “A need to see beyond the superficial; the desire to don a mask or dress something up to disguise it’s true nature; trying to be something you’re not; chasing after every sparkly new thing; being mercurial.”

This card is asking us to use our discernment when it comes to most things this day and age. For example, there is a lot of information out there about what is truth. I am someone who likes to read articles and watch Youtube videos of interviews of “spiritual” people, or people who are talking about UFO’s or disclosure, or listen to radio shows of the same thing. I have a trusted few that I follow but now and then someone new will show up and it is very hard sometimes to tell if they are actually telling the truth. The interviewer may well believe that what this person he’s interviewing is saying is truth. It may be his truth, meaning he may resonate strongly with what the person is saying. However sometimes I will listen and not feel the same way, I have a “feeling” that something isn’t quite right with what this person is saying. It’s just a hunch or a gut feeling, but I have learned to trust that when I feel it.

I find this card very interesting as I was listening to a radio show where Corey Goode stated that there are many tricksters out there. He was actually referring to alien beings and when we come into contact with one, telepathically for the most part, one has to be very careful because of these tricksters. How to know if it is a being of love and light you are conversing with? What do you feel from this being? Corey Goode is a “whistle blower” regarding the secret space program and he is working with David Wilcock. I have listened to several talks and interviews that Corey has given and he knows what he’s talking about in my opinion.

But let’s bring it back to earth because there are many tricksters in every walk of life. I read a quote earlier today on Facebook that said: “Not everyone who smiles at you is a friend.” So again, we need to use our discernment, our intuition, our gut feeling, or whatever other process one might use to figure out if someone is who they say they are, or if they are telling the truth. If we get a feeling that something is off about someone, it is better to trust that feeling than get led down the garden path, so to speak, and regret it in the end. So as we move through the new energies on this planet, there will be more and more coming forward with “the truth”, and in many cases it is going to be hard to tell if it is truth or if it’s that person’s version of the truth. And this could come from people we think have our best interests at heart, like the church or the government or someone else we think would only tell the truth. Remember there are a lot of tricksters out there, or wolves in sheep’s clothing. So remember, all that glitters is not gold!

Protection message: “This is a signal to walk away from what you’re contemplating. There is a thin veneer of glitter and sparkle that masks something rotten underneath. Pursuing it will only bring about a difficult situation you will be sorry you got yourself into. Stay away. Isn’t it wonderful how Spirit protects you? Better things await!” (Wisdom of the Oracle Divination Cards Guidebook)

Have a great day everyone! ~Namaste~

Card For Today

enter-the-jade-temple

Our card for today, Monday, September 26th, is taken from the Kuan Yin Oracle – Enter The Jade Temple – “Kuan Yin, in her Temple of the peaceful Jade, causes all conflict to elevate to higher peaceful resolution. A resolution and healing of any situation that is concerning you is already underway. In fact, you are being asked to begin to feel the relief of that resolution now, so you can more readily receive the divine solution and blessing of peace from the beloved Kuan Yin when it arrives.”

Even though we are being asked to be the love we were born to be as much as we possibly can, it is inevitable that some conflict will occur at some point. For many of us this conflict will arise in our own circles of family and friends, mainly because they don’t understand how we can remain calm in times of chaos and change. From many I follow and listen to, chaos and change is only going to increase on this planet for the next couple of years at least. Remember we have already heard from Kryon that “change is the new normal”! And so the Priestess of Peace, Kuan Yin, invites us into her Jade Temple as we ask for a peaceful and loving resolution to any and all conflict we may be faced with as we walk our paths.

If we are lucky enough to not currently have any conflicts, then we can still enter into the Jade Temple and ask for peaceful and loving resolutions to conflicts between countries and peoples everywhere. There is much going on in our world right now that could use peaceful resolution and so our prayers for peace are sorely needed. Again I will say that we must all remember that what we see playing out on the world stage at any given moment, is the last stand of the dark energies as they realize that their days are numbered on this planet.

They will still try to invoke fear and pain on as many people as possible, because fear and pain stops us from shining our light. They will try many things to bring fear into this world, even by trying to incite racial conflicts within our own countries. Don’t buy into it! See it for what it is! The dark can’t win so let’s not even give them a foothold. Focus on love. Be as the Masters who have walked this earth and BE loving and compassionate to all.

When we ask for peace in general, or for a peaceful resolution to any conflict, it is just as important to act as if it has already occurred. Remember that when we are trying to manifest something into our lives, one of the key components to that manifestation is acting like we have already received it by offering gratitude for it and so on. The same goes for trying to manifest peace in any situation, we must act as if it has already happened. We are asked to look at everything through the eyes of love for only then will we see that in truth only love exists!

Have a great day everyone! ~Namaste~
