About This Energy ~ Help! ~Repost

 

S11.jpg

The current energy flow is knocking us around…tossing us like leaves on a windy day. We get up in the morning and try to be “normal”…but this energy that is permeating our world seeps in and begins to take over, and we are affected by it. With all that is going on around the world…this flow of energy is dastardly. Everyone is feeling it. And having a rough time managing through it. World events, weather, and personal woes have accelerated with this energy, and it “looks” like no matter what we do, it is difficult to rise above it. In my work these recent weeks, I find myself repeating and reinforcing the same message, reminding people of a few things that will help with this process, and encouraging everyone to stick to these things, to not allow the rampant forces to overwhelm us. I share those things here too, in hopes it will help in some small way.

S1.jpg

The most important thing is…we do not have to allow this energy to take over our lives. Even though it is rampant and strong and permeating…we still have command over our Personal and Sacred Spaces…and we must not let this energy lead us to believe anything else. It would have us believe that we have no choice but to succumb to it…but that is not the Truth. And does not have to be “our” truth. Once we take this in and believe it, we can do something to reinforce our energy and personal power.

S3.jpg

So, the first thing to do is…Cleanse and Get Grounded. Whatever your spiritual or religious beliefs, there are processes, prayers, meditations, and rituals for Cleansing and Grounding. Do them. Often. I have just such a process I teach, and do myself, and it helps so much. Just yesterday morning, I did my Cleansing process and felt and saw the sludge of negative energy cleanse from my system and aura…and I felt so much better for having done it. I then Grounded my energy with the Earth Mother, reset my Boundaries, and declared my Sacred Space clean and clear. I was able to go on the rest of the day Balanced and Centered. Even though “that energy” was still near, I was better able to keep it outside my Boundary and not allow it to overtake my day and mood or affect how I felt and related to others.

S7.jpg

Much of the angst we are all feeling is not connected to anything in our own lives. Certainly, we all have issues in our lives to deal with…but with the enhancement of this negative energy, those things seem bigger and harder to manage. But, the real issue is…much of the negativity we are feeling is because of the global negative energy that is rounding this planet. If we can remember that…and Cleanse ourselves of it as often as possible…it will make our own issues easier to handle. And…it will press back on the global negative and help to change the flow.

S4.jpg

Each time one person Cleanses, Grounds, and gets their Light shining again….it connects with another who does the same…and that gets the Light flowing again. It is so imperative that we do not let this dastardly energy win by allowing it to take residence in our lives. Yes, we must deal with it and the world’s problems and find solutions, etc….but we do not and must not allow it to become the norm. We must fight it…and fight it by using our Light and the tools we have to keep our own space, our own lives, our own hearts and souls clear. By doing this…we contribute to the collective Balance and Peace we all wish to see become reality. That reality begins with our own lives…and from there spreads and flows into the world energy.

S5

So, let us each consider and focus on what we can do to keep our own energy Clear and Grounded, which helps us to operate and be in our lives in a better way, which helps the collective. It is a ripple that begins with each individual. This is how we can make a difference right now, in our own lives and in the overall energy.

S8.jpg

Stand in the center of the circle of our life as the Spiritual Warriors that we are, raise our swords, and declare that we shall vanquish this dastardly foe…one moment at a time…one day at a time…one Light circle at a time…and as each of those connect…we begin to build a circle of a far different nature…and Balance and Peace become possible.

(If anyone wants to know about the Cleansing and Grounding processes I teach, please feel free to contact me at the email address on the contact page. There are two blogs about Boundaries posted last week if you would like to reference that process.)

S9.jpg

Go out in your life today and be that True Self that you are no matter what is happening around you. Remember…our Core Self never changes…it is always there to support and guide us…even when we feel everything else has overwhelmed us. Be the Light Force that you already are. Be Brave and Compassionate and Steady. We WILL get through this…and we WILL get to a better place. Believe!

And, from my Heart and Soul to yours, I send you Love, Light, and Support! May each of you be filled with Love and Peace this day!

Blessings!

What To Believe In ~ Repost

 

B4.jpg

That is a question I have heard a great many people sounding out lately. Everywhere, in all corners of our lovely Mother Earth…”stuff” is happening. Unsettling things, events we never imagined, people and governments doing wild and erratic things…and it feels like the energy is only ramping up…and we wonder how to deal with it all, how we will continue to forge our own paths. In the midst of our confusion lies an impossible conundrum…

What To Believe In…Anymore.

B5.jpg

I read a headline this week that said we have lost hope and have nothing more to Believe in. And I want to challenge that headline here. Because we absolutely DO have something left to Believe in. Even in the face of such things we appear to have no control over…we still have something solid, steady, and powerful to Believe in. And that is…Ourselves!

B2.jpg

We may feel we are at a low point, and when we look out into the world, there is precious little to stake our hope and belief in the future on. And So…if we cannot find Belief out there…the most profound and sacred choice would be to…Believe in Ourselves.

B1.jpg

Believe that we can still retain our Inner Light, our Inner Peace, and our Inner True Soul and Self…because nothing and no one can ever take those from us. And with those, we can still forge our lives in the best way we can to follow our paths…which we still can…and must…do.

B7.jpg

By Believing in ourselves even in the face of all this confusion, it keeps the concept, the energy of Believe alive and real and resonates in the air and energy around us.

B4.jpg

We cannot allow Belief and Hope to die. We must keep it alive, within ourselves, so that…no matter what…we still have US, our lives, and the Love and Light that we shine. It can and will make a difference. We must not stop Believing in that.

B3.png

NO MATTER WHAT WE THINK IS OR ISN’T OUT THERE TO BELIEVE IN ANYMORE…THE MOST IMPORTANT AND LIFE AFFIRMING BELIEF…IS IN OURSELVES. THAT IS WHO AND WHAT WE BELIEVE IN…AND THAT CAN CHANGE ANYTHING!

Blessings!

Weekend Inspiration ~ Just Give Hugs!

 

H9

I had an entirely whole other different blog to post for the weekend…and I will post it next week…BUT…with the energy and happenings we have all been dealing with this past week…I decided to post this blog. I heard so many times from so many people this week, including myself, that they just needed a Hug. It has been very difficult navigating through all of the muck, and still trying to carve a moment of peace, or joy amid the chaos. So…we all need…and well deserve…a weekend full of Hugs!

Whenever you can, to whomever you can, and certainly to all your loved ones…Just Give Hugs. Quick ones, long ones, funny ones, tight ones, electronic ones…but just give them. AND…don’t forget to receive them yourself, even if you have to ask for one…do it. Hugs Heal The Heart and Soul and nourish us. Just Give Hugs! Blessings!

A Matter of Resolution

 

R2.jpg

In yesterday’s blog post, I talked about The Power of the Will and what it can do to drive our lives in the right direction. When we make a choice about our life, or a direction we want to go, or something we want to create…if we put The Power of Our Will behind it, to guide it and convey our determination to see it through to success…we are more likely to reach our goals or success.

But…what if we do this…and it still doesn’t turn out the way we thought, wanted, or hoped?

This subject came up in several conversations with multiple people this week, so I am compelled to write about it. Because sometimes, no matter how hard we try or how completely we direct our Will…things take a different turn and move another way. And we can get disappointed or discouraged, and begin to feel helpless.

R4.gif

BUT…(and there always is one!)…when that happens…can we say that, what did actually happen was not for the best…even if we are disappointed? Because sometimes…we do not always know what is best for us and/or “all” in a given situation. We have a perspective…from our position…but is it always right on the mark?

I say this because it came to me that, while we do and should pray for our wishes and dreams and direction to be fruitful…there is still the chance and idea that something even better is possible, but we had not looked far enough or known what could be possible.

R1.jpg

So…as we put our Will behind our Prayers…perhaps another way to ask is…

“For the Best Possible Resolution for Myself and for All involved”.

R6.jpg

Many times what we “want” is not what is best for us. So if we are struggling with trying to make something happen, or praying our hearts out, or pushing our Will to make it happen…it might, but to our detriment…or it doesn’t happen, and we question why, when we wanted it so much.

R5.jpg

Back up into an observer position and ask ourselves what it is we “really” want. And then put The Power of Our Will into asking for Creation and Resolution to/of what we desire that will be the best for ourselves and all.

R8.jpg

We can’t control everything, but we can have control over how we use The Power of Our Will for the Best Resolution. Remember… Directing the Will from our inner Wiser Self always guides us to the right course.

Blessings!

A Matter of Will ~ Repost

 

W3.png

I wrote this blog last year, and it came up in a conversation last night, so I was prompted to post it again. May you enjoy it a second time. Blessings!

“Tis in ourselves that we are thus or thus. Our bodies are our gardens to which our wills are gardeners.”  ~ William Shakespeare

“Most of life’s actions are within our reach, but decisions take willpower.”  ~ Robert McKee

“So many of our Dreams at first seem Impossible, then they seem Improbable, and then when we summon the Will, they seem Inevitable.”  ~ Christopher Reeve

“There is no chance, no destiny, no fate, that can circumvent or hinder or control the firm resolve of the determined soul.”  ~ Ella Wheeler Wilcox

“Do or do not. There is no try.”  ~ Yoda

“The star of the unconquered will, he rises in my breast. Serene and resolute and still, and calm and self-possessed.”  ~ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
”When the will is ready the feet are light.”  ~ Proverb
”Nothing can withstand the power of the human will if it is willing to stake its very existence to the extent of its purpose.”  ~ Benjamin Disraeli

W4.jpg

from the Desk of MarDrag:

In the old, tattered and dog-eared pages of the worn hard cover copy of my Oxford American Dictionary that still sits on my desk (collecting dust), the definition of Will is as follows:

WILL: The mental faculty by which one deliberately chooses or decides upon a course of action: Diligent purposefulness; determination: Deliberate intention or wish: Self-control; self-discipline: A desire, purpose, or determination

Merriam Webster describes Willpower as:  energetic determination

I like all of these descriptions and definitions, my favorite being; “the mental faculty by which one deliberately chooses or decides upon a course of action.” There is also a common word in all of the definitions: determination.

If we put “deliberately chooses or decides” together with “determination”, we have the perfect characterization of the Will. And we all have one. We use it every day in fact (to different degrees), even when we don’t realize it or are not conscious of it. We use it for small things like completing tasks, or getting the hubby/wife to do something we want them to do, or big things like creating businesses or the next great invention. And we use it for all those things in between.

The thing is…we use our Will frequently, and yet, we may not give it the conscious attention, focus or acknowledgement that we should. It is what we do with our Will, or for many, don’t do, that carries us along our paths in life.

W1.jpg

If we would like to craft our lives in the fashion that we want to live, be who we desire and aspire to be, have the things we desire to have, and stop living at the affect of those things that would seem to control us….then we need to change our focus from “why?, I can’t, I don’t want to” or “I don’t know” to “I Will”. And I do not mean the “I will do such and that”. I mean the I WILL which deliberately chooses and makes the decisions of our lives and executes those decisions with determination until the result is to our satisfaction. It is a subtle yet powerful distinction. And one that can change our lives and propel us to realize our potential and that we have the power to overcome our resistance to use our Will in all its positive power.

I am not speaking of Willpower so much as the Power of the Will.

W5.jpg

Acknowledge your Will and the influence it has on your life. Then gain command of it by making deliberate choices about yourself and your life, always striving to direct your Will in a positive direction. When we practice letting go of, “Why aren’t things going my way?” to “I will direct my energy in the way I want things to go, and with a strong Will behind it”, then we empower our lives to move in the direction that we wish it to go. If we are honest with ourselves about that direction, and we make sure it is a positive direction toward perfect love and perfect trust, then we need not fear or worry about where it will lead us. Directing the Will from our inner Wiser Self always guides us to the right course on the right road. The one we are truly meant to take.

W2.jpg

Do not be afraid to acknowledge your Will. Do not be afraid to use it, but be clear, honest and good in your choices in how you use it. Choose to be empowered in the name of goodness and love, Will that you live your life in abundance and peace and that the rest of the world rise to the goodness of Will as well. A thousand Wills, and hundreds more, one by one…and we can change not only our own life, but the life of the world.

This is a difficult time, to be sure. We are daily bombarded with so many things to test our patience and ability to maintain and keep the Love alive.  But we must. If only one minute at a time, one hour at a time, one day at a time…Choose Love…it adds up to a Lifetime.

Blessings and Love to You All!!

Weekend Inspiration ~ Hitting The Pause Button ~ Repost

 

P1.jpg

The dawn comes, splashing pink, orange, and purple streaks across the horizon. It is morning, and we are scrunched down in our beds amid the blankets and comfort, dreams frolicking in the misty gossamer threads of slumber. As images flash, the morning light deepens and throws fingers of dusty beams into the room, signaling the time to rise to the day. And then…Beep…Beep…Beep…Beep…Beep…Beep. A foreign sound breaks into our thoughts, insistent, demanding our attention…until we swing a hand over…and Hit The Pause Button.

P2.png

While this scenario may cause us to grumble as we struggle through the mists to come to wakefulness and start the day…there is something to be said about “Hitting The Pause Button”.

I have been talking about this frequently lately, so I thought I would share it here. It is a trick that is helping people to manage and get command of rampant thoughts and energy that have been difficult to manage or change as we spend this gargantuan effort to stay Balanced and Peaceful through these tough, confusing, and frightening times.

Many have told me how hard it has been to get their thoughts in control. Our minds can race and thoughts can take over, going in directions we do not wish them to, causing negative feelings and energy that is also difficult to release or manage. We can also tend to take this out on others in bursts of frustration and anger. So, it occurred to me that we need an “Internal Pause Button”. And that comes in the form of a “Pause Word”.

P3.jpg

When we catch ourselves running intense or negative dialogue in our minds, or crazy thoughts pop up and make us feel uncomfortable, or our patience runs thin and we feel like lashing out at someone or ourselves…we can hit the Pause Button with a Pause Word. Choose a word that is funny and causes a laugh, or a word that brings a smile to our lips. And when we feel our thoughts getting out of control and affecting our mood or causing an impulsive outburst…hit the Pause Word.

For me, it is Jello! Jello is wiggly and funny and cool and delicious. It reminds me of happier times as a child, making fun with friends and colorful, wiggly Jello. It makes me smile and giggle. And, it is random enough to catch my attention. So, when thoughts or stress creep in and I want to change them…I use my Pause Word and say Jello, Jello, Jello, Jello…over and over in my mind (much like the beep of a pause button on a clock), or out loud if I need to…and it breaks right into my thought pattern, stops it, and makes me laugh and smile…reminding me that I have control over my thoughts and I do not have to allow them to get to me, or influence me, or take over my mood.

P4.jpg

I have been giving this little trick to my clients this week, and they are having great success with it. So, give it a try. Once the train of thought that was making you feel bad is broken, it is easier to move your thoughts in a better direction. And it goes a long way in changing the course of your mood when your mind is saying something silly, insisting that you not take those thoughts too seriously…and move on to restore Balance and Peace in your mind with the prayer, process, or technique that works for you.

P6.jpg

Hitting the Pause Button on the clock in the morning gives us a few minutes to collect ourselves, fully waken, and prepare for rising to the day. Hitting the “Pause Word” in our minds also gives us those few minutes to take stock of our thoughts and change their direction…so that we can rise to the day and the challenges we face in a better light, a better mood, and with command of where our thoughts go and the energy they create within us and around us.

So have a good day….and Jello, Jello, Jello!

P5.jpg

Blessings!
