Trigger Message: Tired of Waiting for the Event?

Light vs Dark is polarity at its most dramatic. The angels vs the demons. Freeing the oppressed. Spreading the love. This is juicy stuff.

 

This trigger message was channeled for those frustrated at the delay of the Event. If you are tired of waiting, please read on.

 

Resistance Movements, secret codes and vague intel messages spread like wildfire among the awakening community. We make it our routine to read our daily channeled messages from our favorite sources, hoping for a small indication that it’s time to move forward. It’s going to begin!  After 300,000 years, we’re finally going to get our planet back!

Victory of the Light” cheers ensue, our vibration is raised at the anticipation of the next phase, and we see the world a bit brighter and more palatable knowing that the real 5D “you” will finally have its day in the spotlight, your 15 minutes of fame, without fear of society’s rebuttal. Because in previous lives, we were burnt at the stake for being ourselves in public.

And then the days go on, and nothing new seems to happen, and our spirits fall as we come to the conclusion that it’s the same old world we’ve been living in.  Just more time went by.

That gives us more time to focus inward, zapping away doubts with our laser guns, seeing beauty out there when we remind ourselves to check for it; and often, we reminisce about the journeys we took between the dimensions and wish we were back there again, free from the constructs of physicality, suffering, and exhaustible linear time.

We practice—either consciously or unconsciously—placing our focus on the various realities in which we live. The physical one (3D), the astral one (4D), and, if we’ve gotten to that point, the electric one (5D.) We view our life and circumstances from each vista, evaluating the feelings related to the theme we chose to explore at each level.

What are such themes for each reality? As the Pleiadians say, there’s a “plan, within a plan, within a plan.” Prior to coming into the physical, we chose which themes we’d like to experience while incarnated; those of us exploring mutual themes will experience each other in the collective after we enter into the game.

If you are focusing on the master theme that includes The Event, then your soul’s areas of desired growth may look like this:

Your 3D plan may include manifesting a physical mate that understands you, finding abundance in a world that worships money, or exploring self-worth issues and the value of life.

Your 4D plan will include studies relating to the the malleability of time, connecting with others in the non-physical realms available to you, and applying compassion.

Your 5D plan is probably so enormous that you could stay in that frequency for ever if you focus on it for too long (which, of course, is true, ultimately.) Yet you remember that you came to Earth to experience life as physical. You wanted the solidity and structure. You wanted that feeling of passing time so you could observe your self-improvement. You signed up for it.

So what does the Event theme look like in the physical?

In 3D it will look like chaos: repeated school shootings, territorial wars, and exploitation of the weaker population. Corrupt politicians, the powerful few oppressing the masses, programming them into zombiehood through messages in television, radio and social media. Children are exploited, people die hungry, and life is REAL. Solid. Poke it with a stick.

In 4D we add to this: that the oppressors are from somewhere else, somewhere off-planet.  They have power, and technology, but they aren’t evolved like we are….savages!  We must defeat them, because Light will always prevail over Darkness. We will take our planet back by fighting with love, dammit.  And whatever happens to the Dark guys, they’ve earned it, but it won’t come from me.  I’m an evolved soul.

And again, in 5D, you have the opportunity to view both of those scenarios, and make choices about who you are in the midst of playing within them. Always a choice, always a preference. And you know, somewhere inside, that you are an impeccable actor in this play. And you wanted to serve others through your own growth, and allow them to serve you.  That’s the oneness aspect, manifested.

And in comes The Event.  And it’s right on time.

This magical occurrence, boiled down to its basic explanation, is defined as the end of our most recent 26,000 year cycle of evolution, where collective focus moves from a masculine (-) charge, to a feminine (+) charge. It’s when the collective has absorbed enough high-frequency bands above it, that Earth is free to ascend herself, since she is 1.5 dimensions behind the collective life forms that she hosts.

In social media, The Event is touted as the turning point for humanity.  The end of war and oppression. The bad guys are uprooted, restored to wholeness through the application of compassion and love, despite their wrongdoing. Money will be freed up for all, free energy will be available to the masses, and government will be restructured to benefit the whole rather than the few. It will be a New Earth.

Now the 5D part of us looks at our Event theme through these two lower frequencies, and recognizes the sub-themes for each level, and remembers that it’s all being played out instantaneously, and no one is getting hurt for real; and that we choose to focus on that level in order to be immersed in the experience of it.  In order to do that, we must lower our vibration a bit.

That puts us back into the game for that reality.  You see through your physical eyes, feel through your physical hands, and you take up actual space in a room. All real, while you’re focusing from within that frequency band.

For the Intel Junkie focusing in 3D, you’ll revel in coded messages from Cobra, secret group meetings in obscure places in Europe, and hopes of admission into the selfless Resistance Movement.  That is a fascinating drama all in itself.

Add the 4D aspect, of remembrance of the astral realms and use of them through intention, and that same Intel becomes an opportunity to serve.  A mission of love for fellow souls who are suffering.  It’s our duty, after all, so why not focus on lighting up the Darkness through mass meditation and thoughts of well-being for all? We’re adding some magic back in here, finally.  Let’s do this.

Now this is really getting to be fun!

Holographic War!  Saving the World in Infinite Dimensions! Galactic Reunion!

All great drama, created by a Self who wanted a dramatic experience for the purposes of growth and integration of all those other Selves out there playing the part of the Oppressor.  Each reality is completely valid and true while you’re focusing in it, and it falls back out of direct impact when you consider it through the concurrent plan of the level above it.  Then the two melt together in a moment, and the reason for your behavior in one reality makes perfect sense within the context of the next highest level.

This is how you bind the remaining DNA strands awaiting reactivation. You view the lower frequency realities from your highest perspective, and they combine through your understanding of the relationship….and you jump up another notch in frequency.

 

So here’s your Trigger Message:

 

The Event is internal.  It will happen out there, when it happens inside of you.

The Light and the Dark are simply masks certain souls are wearing, for your benefit. Nothing to fear, and no one really gets hurt.

The best entertainment one can have is when you are in the center of it, playing along, creating as you go, and expanding everyone’s growth experience along the way.

Remember the master plan:

You are a Gamemaster.  It’s you.  It’s all you, and you are a magical creator. So make it good, through love, compassion and imagination.

when you lose a pet
Life on Earth,

Losing a Pet

It’s hard enough when Lightworkers lose most of their friends, but when the pets go too, great reckonings can occur.

As we expand, our frequency rises to attract those of like vibration to us.  That’s why, when you do the inner work and relieve yourself of those negative belief systems while your friends are out getting drunk, that you end up alone for a while.  It’s natural for we hermits to want some companionship, and turn to our pets for salvation.

Animals are a gift to this earth.  They’ve been placed here to assist us in our growth: by the way we treat them, the quality of life we provide for them, and as a measure of the power struggle between man and beast.

Often, pets are the saving grace from near-insanity while awakening individuals spend immense amounts of time separated from the public, focusing their efforts within on self-improvement.  Looking over at a cat curled up on the sofa can be enough to stave off the loneliness.

When we interact in a one-on-one basis with animals, we infuse them with our frequency.  Every animal that interacts with a human gets a special badge on its signature; loving attention given to them while incarnated increases their frequency and provides them with a broader perspective of love than animals who don’t interact with humans.

If you’re interested in reading more about this, Dolores Cannon’s book Between Death and Life: Conversations with a Spiritis a good place to start.

Know that when a pet leaves Earth, it is welcomed back to Source in its own manner, with love and respect.  The contribution of this beautiful soul is recognized not only by those of us left behind, but also from the non-physical side as well.  And remember, pets often come back into new bodies and make their way back to you!  Look for similar quirks when you’re ready to add another animal into your life.

As for you, you get a badge on your signature as well.  For you’ve shown great responsibility in caring for, loving, and cherishing a soul that often required your selfless contribution of time and money; with an intangible—yet priceless—return on your investment.  This is a great opportunity for expansion.

Love to you!

RIP Taquita.

Cheers to a dog who, throughout her life, managed to eat an entire bag of Craisins (poison), a one-lb Nestle chocolate bar (poison), 3-dozen Christmas cookies (poison), and had a miraculous recovery from a scorpion sting through the ingestion of Wisconsin cheddar cheese.  She passed away (no, not from poison!) after a very long life full of love, food and rolling around in the dirt.

 

if our bodies are made of light, why can't we live on fast food?
Awakening Rants, Featured, Life on Earth, The Esoteric,

If My Body Is Made of Light, Why Can’t I Live On Fast Food?

We are living in a hologram. Simply concentrated light, bunched together in temporary form.

From any one individual’s perspective here on “the ground,” the world can seem so small.  Yet climb that hill a bit, and the view becomes wider, more expansive.  Your perspective is very different from a higher altitude.

When the synchronicities start flowing in due to alignment with Source, the hologram becomes more apparent. People and things come out of nowhere, right when needed, and right on time.  The perfection of the orchestrated occurrences fosters the adaptation that our world really isn’t solid at all.

That’s when shit gets fun.

So, what about our bodies? They seem pretty solid. Nope. Not solid at all.

So if our bodies aren’t solid, what does it matter what kind of food we eat?

What does food–which can’t be solid either if we’re in a hologram–have to do with the whole situation?

It’s about energy.

Everything you encounter has energy.  It carries with it the impression of every single soul who has interacted with it.  And every interaction that occurs, changes the signature of each person, place or thing involved.  The observer, and the observed. That’s called expansion.

That chicken you ate: it had a life.  That stalk of broccoli?  It was living at one time, too.  Its natural instinct was to grow toward the light.

The chicken that got to run around and pick worms apart, and play with its siblings, will be of a higher frequency than a chicken that was stuffed into a cage with a dozen others, unable to move around and express itself.  The quality of life greatly affects the energetic signature of any living being.

So although we technically aren’t solid, those who designed this “physical” world—with its self-imposed limitations that include a physical vehicle that still requires fuel—the energetic exchange still applies.

Your food provides the fuel for your avatar.  And your choice of food provides further opportunity for expansion.

This is why, as you awaken, you will find yourself making better choices.  You will naturally eliminate lower-frequency fuel, and choose food that feels good when you eat it.  This will not feel like sacrifice.  It is an innate instinct that was dormant in your coding, activated by you in the expansion process.

So do we even need food at all?

If you climb high enough on that hill to embrace a larger view, you will see that ultimately, you do not need food at all. Your trek up that hill will include releasing old beliefs and programming that will clarify your view.  From a high enough vantage point, you would recognize life for the hologram that it is, and your choices will be from that perspective.  You can survive on prana, or “life force”.  This is also called love.

Yet, there are few people who have ventured to trek that high up that hill of unknowns.  Few have taken the time to challenge the programming, to recognize the holographic nature of “reality.”  And as such, those of us with those limiting beliefs will not be supported in living without food until we believe that love is all we need.

So remember that you’re eating energy, my love.  Choose the highest frequency available to you, and honor it as the fuel that keeps you running.

Love to you.

how to know if a book is your next resource for waking up
Featured, Life on Earth,

Reading Gibberish? Bookmark It!

Newly-awakened people are ravenous for information about what’s been hiding in the corners of reality, waiting to be discovered.

In the search for truth, we devour entire blogs, subscribe to New Earth YouTube channels, and buy books with titles that would send a “logical, realistic” person running at full speed.

This is level 3 of the upliftment process, which in my upcoming VR game I call The Questioner.

The Questioner goes within, and attempts to determine the concept of “truth.”  What is reality?  What is fantasy? Why do I see things that others can’t? Why do I feel different?

These ponderances send The Questioner down the rabbit hole; following paths that relatively few humans, until recently, have dared to go, for fear of being cast out of their respective social structures.

But good news: If you haven’t noticed lately, it’s now OK to go down the rabbit hole.  Exploration fosters growth, and that’s why we’re here.

But how do you know that a book you’ve just picked up is the best next resource for your current awakening journey?

Here’s how:

Open the book to any page, (or click on a blog post, if you are online) and read one paragraph.

Now, how do you feel?

Did the author communicate from a positive perspective? Or was there blame, anger or aggression in the words you read?

If the message within the book is negative, then consider another resource instead.

 

And if the book is positively-oriented, you can determine if it’s a good next resource for you with two simple questions:

Do I want to keep reading this?

If what you are reading spawns even more questions about the subject material, then there’s a message for you in there.  Your Higher Self led you to this material, and it would be a good next resource on your journey.

 

Do the words look like gibberish?

Everyone can look back to an instance in our “past” where we read something, and thought, “That guy is bonkers. He must be on some good meds.” Perhaps his words sounded foreign, too science-fictiony or fantastical, and we doubted the validity of the claims he made. Or we had to read each sentence multiple times just to fathom what the hell he was talking about.

PERFECT!

If you read that sample paragraph, and it sounded like nonsense, then take note of the book title, or bookmark the site.  This is indication that it will be a resource for you soon, but not yet.

That’s why we might buy a book without knowing why, only to pick it off the shelf years later, at the perfect time in our development.

“Heh,” you’d say, “This has been here all along.”

So no matter how crazy that author sounds to you right now, if you were led to that resource, it will come into play sometime in your “future,” after your consciousness has expanded a bit more.

Nothing that arrives in your focus is by accident.

 

And if what I wrote seemed like gibberish, I love you!  And I’ll be here when you come back.

learning to become
Awakening Rants, Featured, Life on Earth, Oneness,

Move from a Human Being…to a Human Becoming

Do you want the secret of life?  It’s only one sentence.

Can it be that easy?  Well, easy is an attitude, not a process.  Yes, it can be that easy.

It’s more about your attitude than anything else.

The secret of life:

Move from being a victim to taking personal responsibility for every single thing that has, is, or will be happening to you.

For some people, that statement can be a big jump.  We’ve been programmed to give away our power to others: teachers, parents, the government.  After all, they know best, right?

Nope.  You know what’s best for you.  And you don’t know what’s best for others, so Step One:

Focus on you.

Catch that doubt that just dropped in—about being selfish to think like that—and toss that shit out the window.  That’s programming too, and unless you want to stay a victim, then throw it out. If you want your life to change, then you must put yourself in the forefront of your attention.  You can’t light anyone else’s torch without lighting your own first.

 

Now that we’ve got that down, let’s move to Step Two:

You are a powerful creator, who has decided to put a small portion of yourself into a low-vibrational state that looks solid, and you made that portion of you forget that you put yourself there.  

You then set out to reconnect with the other parts of yourself, both visible and invisible. Part of the process of awakening is about remembering that you put yourself in the physical realm in the first place; and that most of you is somewhere else, waiting for you to acknowledge it. Once you have that connection back, you’ll realize the truth of yourself as the creator, by tapping into Universal wisdom that demonstrates, through “coincidences” and synchronicities, that your thoughts are manifesting into the physical.

The Universal laws apply whether you remember them or not. That’s how victims stay victims; by consistently thinking victim thoughts, labeling themselves and others as victims, thus attracting yet more situations of victimhood.  This will continue until one realizes the correlation of their thoughts to their reality.  If this is you, then you are well on your way to recognizing this truth.  It’s a good time to change, if you are tired of being a victim.

Once you understand that you created your reality, then you must take responsibility for every single thing that has happened to you, and also for your judgment of it.  Any feelings of victimhood were simply a choice, and other choices are always available.

If you’re reading this, you are realizing this truth.  As you cognize this truth, you will readily take back the power you previously relinquished to others and you will use this power to create a life that you do want.

 

Finally, Step 3 takes over until you’re done around here:

Recognize that the nature of Life is not just BEING, it’s about BECOMING.

This means that you are constantly expanding through the experience of situations and scenarios…situations and scenarios that you have created for that purpose.

“Being” changes to “becoming” when we embrace that truth, and allowing the higher self to take the joystick to steer us in the direction of our desires.  The act of “becoming” is a dynamic state, rather than a static one.

Ready to try it?  You can start with a mantra, stated with intention and resolve to live your life as a creator who, although you can’t see the whole picture yet, knows that other parts of you can.  It’s just a simple request for assistance:

“I’m a human becoming…help me to become!”

You can use anything you like to speak to the higher part of yourself that can see where you’re headed.  Since you’re endowed with free will, other aspects of “you” will only assist when asked to do so.  It’s you requesting help from yourself, so there’s never any power relinquished in such a statement.

Making the shift from “being” to “becoming” aligns you with the secret of life by right use of the main Universal laws that govern creation:

  • Law of Attraction, by drawing to you the people, events and situations that match your current vibration.
  • Law of Intent, by your stating your particular desires for expansion, and focusing on them with feeling.
  • Law of Allowance, by asking for a bit of help from other parts of you that can see more of the picture.

An entire world is out there for the creating. If you can imagine it, it exists.  Self-empowerment is the secret!

 

*This mantra is a suggested statement from the Handbook of the New Paradigm, written in 1999 by Gary Green.  I’ve included a link below if you want to delve into it more.

how to know that you're over your ex
Awakening Rants, Featured, Life on Earth,

How Awake People Know They’re Over an Ex

So you’re waking up, and you’ll see some relationships fall away. The inward journey then begins, where you might replay situations over in your head in an attempt to find out what went wrong.  Was it you?  Was it them? Will you ever get over it?

Simply being awake doesn’t necessarily mean that the end of relationships is any easier.  In fact, when you allow yourself to actually FEEL, you could experience pain that you would have previously pushed aside or stuffed down in order to move on with your life.

That’s great!  Feel it! It sucks, I know.  I’ve had my heart broken into minuscule pieces and stomped on, as I’m certain you’ve had too.

And I’m sure that you know by now that stuffing those feelings down, whether it be emotionally, physically or spiritually, doesn’t serve you.  Not only do you fail to glean the lesson from the relationship, you’ll also dredge up those unaddressed issues in future relationships unless you clear them out.

There are plenty of ways to do this, including counseling, crying uncontrollably on the floor for a while, or writing in a journal. Feel that stuff, and let it go.

So how do you know when you are fully over someone, and ready to move on to another relationship?

I made a handy chart for you.

how to know that you're over your ex

Note that at the beginning of a breakup, you may experience base feelings such as hate, anger, jealousy and other immediate reactions.  Such feelings are associated with the lower two chakras: the base chakra and the sacral chakra.  These are common initial responses to a breakup.

As you heal—and not generally in a linear fashion, as denoted by the jagged line—your focus will move upward to the higher chakras; feelings related to those energy centers will be more balanced, and head towards greater respect and compassion for your ex. These include acceptance (solar plexus), forgiveness (heart) and wishing your ex well on his or her journey (throat chakra).

Still further along in your healing, you’ll finally move to gratitude and thankfulness for their contribution to your lesson.

This shows that you’ve created a balance among the upper energy centers of the third eye (seeing the reason for the relationship) and the crown chakra (thanking your ex for his or her contribution to your growth.)

How long does this take?  Unfortunately, there is no set formula. Variables such as the length of your relationship, the magnitude of the soul lesson, and whether others (such as children) are affected, will all determine your particular healing path.

What’s important is your recognition of your progress!  Are you able to look back at the person you WERE, and compare it with the person you are NOW?  Such comparisons are the only ones worth making, so please recognize and honor yourself for your growth.

This will prepare you for the next relationship as a better, more loving partner.

Love to you!

nothing is too good to be true
Awakening Rants, Featured, Life on Earth,

Today’s Bullshit Belief: Some Things Are Too Good to Be True

Our 3D Earth is steeped in polarity. Good vs bad, Right vs Wrong, and Better vs Worse; all judgments we make based on a dualistic perspective of our world.

Your true, whole Self knows that polarity is merely a construct applied to the game we are all playing on Earth.  Although all of life is based on balance, your Human Self chose to forget that we can have that balance without the judgment…and without having to actually experience either extreme in our physical world.

So, for now, we’re living in a Dark vs Light world, slowly coming to the realization as a collective that we have the power to choose either side—or NO side—and honor the other side’s beliefs as just as valid as our own.

This means that we’re busting through some old programming that’s been passed down through the generations.

One coming up a lot for the collective now:

“That is too good to be true.”

This is bullshit.

So why would anyone tell you that some things are “too good to be true?”

Because our forefathers lived in perceived powerlessness.  Tossed about by forces they believed were out of their control, they were constant victims of “acts of nature,” of the government, of genetics, of bad luck.  This powerlessness fostered manifestation by default, and the physical world reflected the unconscious intentions of the humans creating it.  We’ve been living in very dark times.

“Too good to be true” implies that to have some things, you must give up other things.  That you can’t have your cake, and eat it too.  That there is nothing on Earth that is perfect.

We were taught to be fearful.  We were taught to believe that someone out there knew better than we did, so we had better listen.  Such beliefs were recounted by countless exhausted, overwhelmed parents to hopeful children, over centuries of darkness-instilled existence.  It was easier to set up a child for failure in advance, than to watch him experience a heartbreaking defeat later in life.

And I’m sure you understand that it’s not a stretch to think that someone would take advantage of the fear of others, and magnify it, and then utilize it for their own selfish purposes.  This is why such fear has perpetuated across eons of human existence, even when meeting basic survival needs is easier for us now than ever before.

So the words of past overwhelmed parents are now reinforced through social media, broadcast news, and reality TV.  And it keeps people fearful, and powerless to believe that they can have what they want.  Because if you have everything you want, then it is hard to control you.

You can have it all. Everything can be good.  You can have all the money you want.  You can have the love of your life.  All of these things can be yours.

Thankfully, your Higher Self has the schematic of the major goals your soul set out to achieve during this lifetime, and it will guide you to the things that serve you on the quest for your divine purpose. If you allow things to unfold with a recognition of your power as a creator (even if you can’t see the big picture right now), your Human Self will align with your Higher Self, providing you with a satisfying life of love and inner peace.  It’s your belief that you can have the things that you want, according to your divine purpose…that will bring those things to you.

You will be so enthralled with what you have—placed in exactly the right place in your life, at exactly the right time—that you will want to openly share it with others.  You won’t even pay attention to the extremes of polarity, because your emotional, spiritual, and physical needs are met.  And you spread that energy to all those that you encounter, and maybe they’ll start believing it too.  That’s how the world changes.

Today, I want you to feel what life would be like if you knew that things can be good.  That everything CAN go right.  That your desires WILL be fulfilled, simply because there is plenty for everybody.  These are remembrances, not lessons.  You already know this; you just forgot.

Aim for the feeling that things are going well for you.  It may be a feeling that brings up some guilt.  SCORE!  One more bullshit belief that, once cleared, releases the resistance for allowing in what you want.

You’ve got this.

pulling out old beliefs
Awakening Rants, Featured, Life on Earth,

Mental Gardening Makes For A Clearer Path

Old beliefs stand in the way of realizing your full potential.  Maybe it’s time to clear your path.

If you’re like me, you want to clear out EVERY negative aspect of yourself, from the ego-driven sarcastic statement deliverer, to the overly critical observer catching a glimpse of myself in the mirror. It seems like it’s a never-ending torturous path of whacking away the non-serving belief systems with our spiritual machetes.  Yet some of those beliefs are rooted so deeply that we never really see the whole thing, and so it never really goes away.

A machete won’t do that.  You gotta dig out the roots.

OH GREAT!  More processing!  More tears! More lessons to learn.

Well, yeah.  That is always going to accompany a physical incarnation.  That’s why we come here.  Yet you could look at those beliefs in a different, more gentle way.  One that gets you to the core so you can pull up that mofo, roots and all, for good.

Let’s take an old, outworn belief, and imagine it’s a prickly bush.  It’s knee-high, and spiky, and you keep running into it because it’s in the path you take every day; and because your attention is elsewhere while you’re walking.

You really know that your path would be easier without smacking into those damn thorns every time you start walking, but you also know that pulling it out would require tools, and thick gloves, since your bare hands would be a bloody mess if you tried to just yank it out of the ground while passing by.

So you continuously sidestep the bush, hoping to avoid scratching yourself, and so far you’ve been managing.  But sometimes, every once in a while, you forget it’s there, and you walk straight into the bush…and the painful scratches are your reminder that you really need to just pull the damn thing out.

You may imagine all the effort it would take, finding gloves, and time, and the proper frame of mind to tackle the situation. And when you encounter such obstacles, the self-bashing begins.

  • “I don’t have the time to pull out this bush.  I’ll do it next week.”
  • “The roots run really deep and I may need a shovel to get way down.  I don’t have a shovel.”
  • “Even with gloves, I might still get some scratches.  I don’t want that pain right now.”
  • “Who the fuck planted this stupid bush in my path anyway?  It’s their damn fault.”

And I don’t even have to tell you this, but bushes grow.  Both upwards, further into your line of sight…and downwards, extending their roots deeper into the ground.

It doesn’t matter who planted the bush.  Could have been you.  Could have been someone authoritative from the past.  You can spend your time cursing the bush, or blaming the bush, or hating the bush.  But the bush is there. And it’s your path, and it’s your responsibility to pull the fucker out.

So how to remove the bush with the least amount of time, effort, and scrapes?

You soak the ground with water.

The moisture loosens the dirt around the bush, creating a softer surrounding environment, thus making it easier to pull the whole thing up, roots and all.

The water in this case, is neutrality.

By softening the foundation supporting the bush—or looking at the situation from a neutral standpoint, rather than one of self-judgment or blame—you facilitate the removal of the whole thing, with less effort. And then you can move on with your life with a clear trail ahead of you.

Could you get scratched?  Well, sure, you could get a few scrapes, but you’ve got your gloves, and other tools that you’ve gathered over the years to address “bush” issues! A few scratches on the arms far outweigh the burden of sidestepping a growing, perpetually painful belief system that constantly inhibits your journey.

The use of neutrality is a skill that will benefit you in all areas of your life.  Not just pulling out bushes, but dealing with your beliefs about people with opposing views, your beliefs about your self-worth, or your feelings about your place in society.

Allowing things to be as they are, without constantly creating a story around them, is like softening the foundation.  It gives you the ability to observe these concerns without the judgment, to review your belief, and then update it to reflect the new You.  In all honesty, the bush wouldn’t be prickly if it weren’t meant to be addressed in some way.

And each time you pull out a bush, you will encounter fewer and fewer of them along your path.  You’ll then walk with your eyes up, rather than continuously looking down for thorns.

when life comes at you fast
Awakening Rants, Life on Earth,

Challenges Coming At You At Breakneck Speed

Life is funny in that it presents you things quietly, subtly, at first.

It hopes that you recognize the message, and take action on it. That action could be addressing a fear, paying a bill, or learning to trust.

If you don’t get the first message, it will send you a stronger one. And if you don’t get that one? More will come in succession, in larger and larger proportions, until the shit hits you in the face and you have no other option than to deal with it.

The act of meditation provides an option to listen to the subtle messages, but in our world rife with diversions, many claim that they don’t have time to meditate. Similar results can be obtained with other practices, such as physical exercise, creating art, cleaning or cooking, to name a few. It’s when the mind is at rest that we are most receptive to these gentle messages. But sometimes people don’t have time for any of it…and those are the people who are presented with DRAMA, because that’s what it takes to get them to pay attention.

Do you like drama? Great! Then expect that your problems, and their solutions, will necessarily be bigger than life, because that’s what you’ve asked for.  There’s no judgment in that statement; it may just be that you love action and movement and wild, extreme emotions.

In my experience, the youthful years are full of drama, until we gain the wisdom to remember that it can wear us out quickly.  Then, as we experience more in our bodies on Earth, we choose simpler, calmer options for learning.

So if you are encountering a number of hits to your sanity, look at where you may be diverting your attention.  Recognize any patterns from the past that were repeated indicators that your soul is trying to get your attention.

When you find it, address it head on with whatever method feels right to you. Drama or simplicity, your choice.
