Body symptoms when 'stepping into your power'
Posted on Tuesday, June 2, 2015

I wanted to post this to speak to anyone who may resonate with it.
Have you ever noticed that when you are trying to grow past your comfort zone, and step out into yourself, that your body may act up?
I get severe bloating in my abdomen when this happens. 
It's like my power center, getting all big and loud, and letting me know that it is not ok with those parts of me that wish to keep me small and protected, that I step out and get bigger.
I don't have this fully figured out yet, but I am working with it. For right now, I am just reminding myself that I have been through this before, that I can do it this time, and just wearing bigger clothing until my body catches up to the rest of me.  I believe it's also an extra layer or protection to help me right now as I am transitioning into something much bigger.  Either way, I'm going to send myself some love, and just keep moving forward- step by step as things feel aligned.





Your relationship with yourself and that which is greater than you (however you believe/see it) are the most important relationships you will ever have.  Success or failure of all other relationships will come from there.  So start with building a great foundation.  Then the other relationships you build will be more sustainable.  YOU and your God are number 1. 

When you are full, you may give of your abundance to others-without depleting yourself. 

This is different than what you may have learned from traditional mainstream institutions or your family.  It involves just a small shift in perspective, and then everything can shift.

And- Freedom, Love, Joy, Radiance, and Abundance will be yours!

Blame.
 
What is its purpose?
 
To define who or what is responsible for something, in my definition.
 
So what next?
 
After we've defined who or what is responsible for something- even if it's ourselves, then what do we do with the blame?
 
Do we take it in, try it on, and make it a very permanent part of ourselves?
 
That doesn't seem to fit its purpose.
 
It seems to me, that once blame is established, its purpose has ended.  
There is no more that blame needs to do.
Nothing to be gained by hanging on to it or pointing a finger to someone else that has been established as the responsible party.
 
So what then, do we do with it?
 
Well, we can thank blame for its service, and move on to what is next.
 
Responsibility.
 
You see, the only purpose of blame is to establish responsibility.
 
Once responsibility has been taken and dealt with accordingly, the one blamed has completed their brush with blame.  Blame no longer serves a purpose, for we already know who is responsible.
 
Now whether or not one chooses to take responsibility, that is another story.
 
Taking responsibility may be difficult, but it's much lighter to carry than the weight of blame that has already served its purpose.
 
So take responsibility if it's yours.  And if it's not, keep moving forward and know that another will take responsibility when and if they are ever ready to.
 
And there's absolutely nothing you can do to control that.
 
Take what's yours, and be free of the rest.
 
It's a great way to 'lighten' up!

Spiritual Truths I've Learned that Seem Opposite of What We Were Taught
 
 
To help the people, help yourself.
 
To heal the people, heal yourself.
 
 
Did you know that there is a scientific reason behind why you should 'put on your own oxygen mask before helping the person next to you?'  I once heard (and hopefully I am getting the time close to exact here), that you have something like 40 seconds to get some oxygen in your system if the cabin pressure drops.  In this case, if you really think that the person you want to help first needs you/must rely upon you to survive- Then what will they do without you after: their mask is on, your 40 seconds is up, they can't help you with your mask, and they are now without you?
 
Heal yourself.  Heal the people.
Help yourself.  Help the people.
 
 
LOVE to all.

Finding Your Center
 
 
So basically, Dorothy gets caught in a swirling vortex of chaos, loses her center, and is thrust into an unfamiliar world full of strangeness and challenges at every turn. She goes looking to everything around her for answers, though it is also her strength that her companions are relying on. Dorothy, though she thinks she is lost, is her own true hero.
 
She looks expectantly to the great and powerful Oz, only to find out that he is no more powerful than she- he just decided to put on a better show.
 
Her true power lies within, and she finds that she had it with her all along.
 
The only thing she ever needed to do to free herself from the swirling vortex was to breathe, center, and surrender to the flow.  When she was quiet and surrendered, all of her power came back and all of her answers came forth.  
 
Breathe and center, and be still to access our answers.
We all have that power within us. 
 
When we give up and give our power away to others, that's when we realize that we've had it in us all along.
 
You CAN do this.
 
You have everything you need.

I attended a Native American storytelling and music offering this morning.
 
What I noticed was the wide diversity of very interested people in the room.
 
Black people, White people, Asian people, Indian people, Older people, and Younger people.
 
Seems all of us are searching for something we've lost. 
 
In our predominantly white and still masculine energy dominated Western world, it is becoming very evident that, whether those that are searching realize what they're searching for or not, we are all trying to find something we've lost.
 
Seems to me- the best place to go looking, are the areas that have been ridiculed, rejected, and suppressed by our culture.  It may not be the popular place to look, but the 'misfits' of society are rightly those who will save us all if we learn to follow their lead.
 
Every trait or affiliation that has not been 'allowed,' has only been rejected due to fear that people would be harder to control. That they would realize the truth of their connectedness- and no longer live in fabricated or exaggerated fear of that which 'they are not.'
 
They would realize what they've lost, regain some of their wholeness, and know that they are indeed a valuable part of the web of all life.  That the truth is that there is no separation- that we are ALL connected.  There is no 'us' and 'them.'
 
So if you've been told that you are not 'acceptable' for any reason, start by recovering these things in yourself.  Take a good look at them and see if there is any good reason for pushing those parts of yourself away, or if in fact you've been lied to based on someone else's fear.
 
And when you've finished with yourself, talk to a gay person, a black person, a Native American, a woman, or basically anyone who has ever been told that there is something not as appealing about being that which they are.
 
And if you're a white male- reclaim all that has been taken from you as well.
You were sold a lie, and you may have bought it.
You were told that to claim the feminine energy in yourself would make you less of a man.
 
The Western world cannot survive on only masculine energy.
Men cannot survive on only masculine energy within themselves.
We need you to have the courage to see past the lie and reclaim the other side of yourself, and to honor all of the people and places in the world where that softer, feminine energy shows up.
 
White men- you ARE as important as the world has made you- But not exactly for the reasons  you have been sold. 
 
We need everyone to awaken to their true brilliance and authenticity.
 
 
Time to find out who we really are.
 
 
 
(For those interested in more on this topic- I have a book finished on the Healing of the Masculine and Feminine- awaiting it's proper publisher).  Let me know if you are that one so it can get out there.

RE-FRAME time!
 
What if we were to entertain the possibility that when we try to  introduce positive changes to those around us and we get either no response, or get loud and forceful backlash and resistance, - these are actually the things that are having the strongest effect on them.  If this wasn't the case, there would be no need for the silence or backlash.  Therefore, whether the other is cooperative or not, your ideas and proposals are indeed causing them to take in and process what you have presented on some level.
 
Consider this, when we attempt to make major changes in our own consciousness; things that go against our entrained  habits, patterns, or repetitive thoughts that have been unconsciously picked up along the way- those ingrained parts of ourselves revolt against our proposed changes as well.  Eventually, once we offer these parts of ourselves  our love, patience, and perseverance, at some point they'll likely either come around, or get out of the way.
 
Takes some of the frustration, conflict, and pressure out of these interactions-doesn't it?

Posted on Wednesday, September 11, 2013 3:04 PM
Remember when people are pushing your buttons:
 
It's not about being AGAINST someone else,
It's about being FOR yourself.
 
Therefore instead of 'reacting,' you can respond by doing simply what's best for you. (Which is also best for everyone else by default- due to you being your authentic self).
 
In this way, you will no longer feel the need to rally support around you that is also 'against' this other person or thing, in order for you to feel safe.
 
The challenge as a pioneer of your own authentic-ness is to be FOR yourself, even if it seems like no one else is, without falling into the trap of thinking you need to be against those that may seem to be against you.

When people meet and are attracted to each other, the attraction comes from the sacral chakra.
 
Your energy recognizes something in their energy that has the capacity for love and romance.
 
The problem is, many people marry and have children while they're still relating from this chakra.
 
Eventually, the relationship must deepen due to the inability of a growing soul ( in loving connection) to stay living primarily in the sacral chakra.
 
As the romance fades, the connection must shift to the heart.
 
If there is a blockage (or a blockade), the connection never fully locks in on this level.
 
It is here that we find ourselves despairing in all manners of a 'love gone wrong.'

Love is what evolves our species."

Being balanced and centered is the most important thing.
All else can come from there.



Posted on Wednesday, June 19, 2013 1:51 PM

If you have passed this movie up due to the very flashy and overly dramatic looking trailer, take a second look.  I find this piece of art to be immensely important and a true partner to the original.  As Dorothy went in search of the divine feminine, Oscar (Oz) goes in search of the divine masculine (though he doesn't know it).  After you see this, the sheer quantity and quality of the divine masculine and feminine archetypes from both movies will blow your mind.  JMHO

It is of the utmost importance to figure out what keeps you balanced.
Your energy, your health, your mood, and your attitude.
 
We are each responsible for our own energy, and the condition of that balance affects everything and everyone around us.  We are all a part of the all, and the collective 'field' is filled with everyone's energy.
 
This is scientifically proven.
 
If you walk into a room where someone has just had an argument, you can feel the leftover energy.
 
We are all tapping into the collective energy all day long.  In these times, when there is a lot of very strong energy around us, it is ever more important to remain balance.
 
So find what works for you- what foods, what spiritual, silence, or meditative practice, what exercise, what times of the day to do all of these things, etc.
 
And when someone around you blows up- retreat to another place if you can- if even in your own head or heart- and breathe through it until you find yourself centering, even amidst the storm.
 
Be like the tree, flexible, and standing tall. 
 
Godspeed.
