About This Energy!

 

M 1

I am writing this post as a bit of a message from me…no cards, Runes, or oracles today. Just me.

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.

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.

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.

Much of the angst we are all feeling is not connected to anything in our own lives. I have heard so many people say, “I don’t know why I feel this way, nothing is really wrong” or “I don’t understand why I can’t get out of this funk” or “I am crying all the time and I don’t know why”. 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.

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.

M 4

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.

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.)

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!

Monday Message ~ Boundaries

 

 

Good Morning and welcome to the start of another week. For our Monday Message to get us started, I sought the wisdom of the animal kingdom once again…and they have not failed us. The message this morning is an important one, which I will write more about tomorrow, but for today, I dip into the deck of “Medicine Cards ~ The Discovery of Power Through The Ways of Animals” by Jamie Sams and David Carson and the one that comes to hand is:

A 1

Armadillo ~ Boundaries, Respect Your Sacred Space

Message (paraphrased):
“Armadillo wears its armor on its back, its medicine is part of its body. Its boundaries of safety are a part of its total being. Armadillo can roll into a ball and never be penetrated by enemies.

What a gift to set your boundaries so that harmful words or intentions just roll off. Your lesson is in setting up what you are willing to experience. If you do not wish to experience feeling invaded, just call on Armadillo medicine.

If Armadillo medicine has waddled into the cards chosen today, it is time to define your space. You may have been too willing to allow others to define your space, to say yes when you want to say no, or to allow what others say to impact you too much. It is time to ask yourself if you are honoring your own time, space, and feelings.

Setting up Boundaries is necessary. It is your perimeter of what you will and won’t do; what makes you feel uncomfortable and what is comforting to you. How you react in any circumstance has to do with your ability to be objective. You cannot be objective if you cannot tell where another person’s personality (or a circumstance) stops and where yours begins. If you have no Boundaries, you are like a sponge, soaking up all of the energy, thoughts, and feelings of others. It can make you confused about your own true feelings.

Ask yourself if all that you are feeling and experiencing is really yours. Then allow Armadillo’s armor to slice in-between, giving you back your sense of Self.”

from The Desk of MarDrag:

This message from Armadillo is so profound and timely today. The topic of Boundaries is an important one, and one I have been meaning to write about. I will write more about it tomorrow, but for today, let us take the advice Armadillo gives us and focus on setting our Boundaries around our Sacred Space.

Our Sacred Space is that space we occupy, defined as we choose in this life. It is our right to protect that space and to have it be exactly as we want it to be…because within that space is where we find our power, comfort, and peace. When that space is invaded by other peoples energy, words, or actions (or that of the world in general), then we can feel put upon and overwhelmed and depressed, and rightly so.

A 4This is why it is so important to draw our Boundary around our Sacred Space and protect it, and ourselves, from that which we choose not to experience. In other words, if someone is saying something to us and it is not what we experience or believe, we have a right to keep that outside our Boundary; to hear it and understand it, but to allow it to roll off the armor of our Boundary and not touch us. We do not have to take on everything everyone hurls at us…including the chaos of world issues.

We are going through tough times. In order to survive them and thrive within them and then change them, we need to remember to protect ourselves…to gather our Boundaries around us and not allow this dastardly energy swirling around to get to us and discourage us. Armadillo tells us to draw the magic of the Light of our Boundaries around us and let this negativity roll off so that we can remain steadfast in our efforts to shine that Light within and not let anyone tell us or convince us that we cannot experience a change for the better in the world…and in our own worlds.

We choose our experiences…and we have the right to choose what we allow into our Sacred Space. It is not that we shut the world out, but that we determine what that world is made of. And that effort begins within our own individual worlds.

So, let us look at our worlds today and let US be the source of what defines the nature of those worlds, and then let us be as Armadillo and set our Boundaries and protect those worlds…which will then Link By The Light of Our Souls…and makes such a difference in our daily life.

Blessings!

Thoughts For The Day

Thought 1

 “Crying is one of the highest devotional songs. One who knows crying, knows spiritual practice. If you can cry with a pure heart, nothing else compares to such a prayer.”  ~ Kripalvanandji

 

MarDrag’s Thoughts:

 

Crying is such a great purging, washing us clean, as the tears flow like a river. We feel our emotions so deeply that they command expression. This is good, because such depth needs acknowledgement. When we cry, we open our channel to be heard, by whatever Higher Power we aspire to…and it is a prayer, or plea, in its purest and most honest form. When necessary, let those tears flow and cleanse you. It is not a sign of weakness at all, but an act in courage that, no matter how raw and deep the wound goes, there is still space for hope and renewal. Those tears clear that space for us.

 

And…did you know that we only have enough tears to cry for 10 minutes at a time? The tear ducts empty and it takes 10 minutes for them to fill up again. Thus giving us the space for breath and repose. The intelligence of the body!

 

Thought 2

“Your sacred space is where you can find yourself over and over again.”  ~ Joseph Campbell

 

MarDrag’s Thoughts:

 

We all need a Sacred Space. Sometimes it is a space in the physical, somewhere we go to find solitude and ponder and rejuvenate. But, if we do not have that space, or the time to get to it, within each of us is space to build a Sacred Space…a place we go within, built just as we would like, made just for us, where nothing and no one can get in unless we invite them. And in that Sacred Space is everything we need for ourselves…our Power, Compassion, Strength, Wisdom, and so much else. If you have not, go within and build your Sacred Space…fill it with all that you need for peace and balance…and go there often. Feed and nurture yourself from within. You will find what you need…over and over again.

 

Thought 3

“The power of human thought grows exponentially with the number of minds that share that thought.”  ~ Dan Brown

 

MarDrag’s Thoughts:

 

If you ever thought you do not make a difference, that your thoughts or actions do not count, that there is too much negativity to overcome…and so it is hopeless…read this quote. It is so true, and it could save us. Consider that, whatever you are thinking right now, thousands of other minds are on the same thought. If that is negative…so will the energy be that flows from those thoughts. Now…just imagine for a minute…a thought bubble…connected by so many minds on the same thought…and that thought is Love. Imagine that bubble spreading across the world. Just think what that could mean. Make a difference. Think Love.

 

Blessings!
