How to Stop Expecting The Worst

A new situation has just arisen for you, and you are worried about the outcome.  Do you immediately assume that the worst will happen?

If so, you are not alone. In our modern Western society, survival fears run rampant. It would be a normal response to fear an unknown outcome since you are programmed—through advertisements, news and entertainment—that your very life might end if you are not vigilant of all inherent dangers.

But if you look back in your life, I can say with 100% accuracy, that there was a time that you expected the worst to happen, and it didn’t.  In fact, it’s likely that something unexpectedly awesome happened instead.

Let’s do a quick test of your beliefs about this concept:

 

Think about a time when you worried about something that never happened.

When you expected the worst. When you stayed up at night in an anxious fit because you weren’t sure if you would make it through.  When you truly worried if you would be out on the street living in a cardboard box under a bridge.

 

Now we’ll divide that scenario into two parts:  What you expected to happen, and what actually happened.

 

Bring yourself to the beginning of the situation, when everything was up in the air and things were chaotic.

What does that feel like to you? Pay attention to your senses and feel that scenario once again.

If you are new to recognizing your feelings, here are some examples:

  • Your mind gets very sharp, as if on alert. (Fear)
  • You hold your breath. (Ready to run)
  • Involuntary shaking (Dread)

Chances are, your body cramped up, your breath was choppy, and you felt like you wanted to bolt. These are indications of the beliefs you held about how things work out for you. While you were contemplating the outcome of your situation, your beliefs directed your reactions.  

That feeling indicates your belief at the time you registered that memory.

 

Now let’s look at the other part:

The worst didn’t happen. 

Now what does that feel like to you?

If you are new to recognizing your feelings, here are some examples:

  • Your muscles relax. (Relief)
  • Your gut feels like it’s been washed over with warm water.  (Calmness)
  • You take a deep breath. (Alignment with your Source)

If your feelings changed between “expecting the worst” and “the worst didn’t happen,” then that situation arose to give you the opportunity to change your beliefs.

 

Now whether or not you chose the new belief at that time and place, only you know.  If you didn’t, then you are not alone.

You can use that past scenario to change your beliefs NOW.

Next time a situation arises in which you automatically jump to expecting the worst, reach for the feeling you felt last time when the worst didn’t happen.

Grab for that better feeling, and then move your mind along on its way to a fun subject.  Each time you perform this switch, you solidify the new belief and decommission the old one.

Hopefully, you recognize that you have all of the building blocks for a positive life, right there for use.  It’s merely a matter of choosing a building block that supports your desires, rather than those that no longer support you.

Love to you.

believing inner voices
Awakening Rants, Featured, Life on Earth,

Which inner voice should I believe?

Do you know what your Higher Self’s voice sounds like?

We’re told that consulting the “larger part” of ourselves is the most dependable way to ensure that our desires correlate with those of our soul plan.

Let’s say that you need to make a decision, and so you ask yourself a question: “What is the best option for me at this time?”

Asking yourself a direct question is always the best and most efficient way to get to where you want to go.  Your Higher Self is right there, waiting for you to ask.

Depending on how much mind chatter you still have in your internal conversations, you may get an answer in a string of words, or an image, or a feeling, or if you are really attentive to your outside surroundings, a synchronicity that is so perfectly timed that you know its connected to your inquiry.

In the beginning of your awakening, your answer will most likely come to you in words.  That’s traditionally been the “reliable” method of communications for humans, after all…forget the fact that leaving out a comma can cause all sorts of issues with the statement being made:

“Let’s eat, Grandma.”

“Let’s eat Grandma.”

So, yeah, words aren’t that dependable.

What about the voice delivering those words?  Where is it coming from?  Whose voice is it?  And is one voice easier to believe than another?

I have a friend who begged for the voice to be someone besides her own, so she could be positive that it wasn’t her mind playing tricks on her. And when it finally happened that she received a message from a strange man’s voice, she freaked out and demanded it go away immediately…and followed by frantically burning sage throughout the house just to ensure that she wasn’t dealing with a negative entity trying to take control over her.

If the voice sounds like your own, you may doubt it as your mind rather than your Higher Self.  And if the voice sounds like a stranger, your “fight or flight” reaction could take over…along with the fear that your head will soon do a 360 on your own neck, and you lack the acquaintance of a priest brave enough to lock himself in a room with you for an all-night exorcism.

Words.  They aren’t that dependable.

Requiring your answer delivered by words is simply leftover ingrained programming from a society that seeks to control those who won’t make decisions for themselves. If you are reading this, then you are moving away from that programming, and you are moving towards sovereignty.

So next time you ask a question, send out an intention with it:

“I would like the answer to come to me in a manner that alleviates doubt as to the legitimacy of the message.”

And one more thing you may need to face:

Every voice is YOURS, no matter if it sounds like Grandma, your creepy next door neighbor, or your own.

It takes a bit of time to transmute those old doubts, and so we take small steps in the recognition of ourselves being the creator of our reality.  We still tend to believe information delivered from external resources over internal messages, and so we unconsciously label the speaker as someone other than ourselves in order to suspend the doubt and accept the message.

So when you hear Grandma’s voice answering your question, you may feel more comfortable with that soft, gentle tone.  And that’s totally OK.

But no matter which voice is delivering words to you, there is one more step, which transcends the content of the sentence.  It requires you to FEEL in addition to listening:

Check with your gut about the answer you’ve received.

Your gut never lies.  Never. Ever. Ever.

Your Higher Self speaks to you through the gut.

So it really doesn’t matter whose voice is speaking to you, because words are filtered through the brain every time. Your Higher Self doesn’t bother with the brain, since it’s undependable, it’s programmable, and it’s fickle. And God forbid, you leave out a comma.

Practice discernment by picking up the internal “red phone” connected directly to your gut, and your answer will be there, at the other end of the line, every time.

Eventually, you will feel more comfortable jettisoning the words, and your answers will come to you in a variety of ways, all of which, in my opinion, are more comprehensive, more colorful, and much more fun.

belief in impossible things
Awakening Rants, Featured, Life on Earth, The Esoteric,

Believing the Impossible: You CAN Be The First

Once we solidify the understanding that we are creating our reality, we start contemplating the viability of things—wild things—generally thought impossible.

“You can’t do that,” that old grumpy ego self tells you.  “No one has ever done that.”

And the new you?  Soon enough, if not already, you’ll answer with “Watch me.”

We’ve been living under a veil of limitations that is now lifted, and should you choose to embrace that, the sky is the limit.  And simply because no human has seemingly done something you would like to do, is not indication that it’s impossible.  It merely hasn’t been done yet, to your knowledge.

Think of some occurrences that we would never have thought possible, until someone tried them:

  • Someone believed that willow bark can heal any number of ailments, including staving off heart attacks. Now it’s called aspirin.
  • Someone believed that a mile could be run in 4 minutes, despite being told it was physically impossible.  Roger Bannister believed it, and since that day in 1954, over 1400 athletes have followed suit (some shaving another 15 seconds off of Roger’s time.)
  • It was widely believed in the late 1800s that the maximum possible speed any human could ever travel without suffocating was around 30mph. No reference needed here if you have ever driven on a California highway.
  • Someone said “It’s quite possible that within the next 100 years there will be a telephone in every town.” He was laughed at, apparently. That was Alexander Graham Bell.  He didn’t think big enough, in my opinion.

My point:

There is always a first.  If you desire to do something seemingly impossible in today’s world, yet can’t let go of the doubts, then check your beliefs about self-worth.

You no longer need to live within the status quo.  It was always a choice, by the way, but you forgot.  Now that you remember, you can choose otherwise.

 

Why self worth?

Let’s look at some common illusory statements that have been stuffed down your throat since you were born (that includes other Earth lives as well, to be sure):

  • You’re not smart enough to do that.
  • You don’t have the education to do that.
  • No one has ever done that.
  • It takes years of practice to be that good at that.
  • You’re too old to try that.  Maybe when you were younger.

BULLSHIT!

That is all bullshit, my friends. You’ve merely been exposed to fear-based programming that kept you controllable.  And you can de-program yourself by changing what you believe.

Anything that you can think of, you can experience.  Period.

It’s all in your beliefs that you can, or can’t, that make the difference between you doing something, and you shutting yourself off to the possibility.

 

If you think you can, or you think you can’t…either way, you’re right.

~Henry Ford

 

So if you have the desire to try something “impossible” that would make you go “SQUEEEEEEE,” then ride that wave.  Stay in the vibration of it for as long as possible, and ask your Higher Self for assistance from the non-physical side of you.  Those etheric tools are just waiting for your invitation to be put to use.

Remember that any pits in your stomach that arise, are doubts based on someone else’s opinion of what is, and is not, possible; and you simply believed them long ago.  You can un-believe them just as easily, now that you are sharpening your own previously-rusty, creative tools for use in the 3D physical world.

Now many others around you have not done the inner work that you are doing, and because of this, they may discount your wild statements as fantasy, craziness or wishful thinking.  I don’t suggest sharing your adventurous plans with those who will not support you.  It’s not that they are bad friends, but rather that they may still be too ingrained in the illusion to be a willing cheerleader on the sidelines for something they still consider impossible.

It’s time to pull out the toolbox and dust off those creative skills that have been trapped inside, waiting for you to wake up.  As you recall, things put away and ignored are merely stopped up energy.

You have a lot of power in that toolbox. Pop open the lid, and use your imagination.  It’s how the Universe expands.

how to blast away guilt with a toy laser gun

VIDEO: Blast Away Guilt with a Laser Gun

How many thoughts have you had today that were shot down with doubt and guilt? Here are a few to get you started:

“I don’t have time to do that.”
“I need money to have fun.”
“I should be working right now.”

Your Higher Self is waiting for you to screenshare! That’s when you hand over the mouse to the larger part of you, and you allow it to take control.

A No-Guilt Day allows you one day to give up control of your mouse, and see where it leads you….and when guilt comes up for your crazy thought, you’ll use a silly noisy toy to jolt you out of it and amplify your vibration back up into one of positive creation.

It’s a very basic version of neuro-linguistic programming that will also bring to your attention how many guilt-ridden thoughts cross your mind in a day. Probably more than you think!

Give yourself the chance to find out where your soul is headed with this simple exercise.

trigger message for the event
Featured, Life on Earth, Oneness, Trigger Messages,

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.

Why we promote and deny aliens at the same time
Featured, Life on Earth, Oneness, The Esoteric,

Why We Promote and Deny “Aliens” at the Same Time

Hollywood loves them. The government hates them.  Whichever side of the fence you’re on, “aliens” are part of our world in some way, shape or form. And they are not going away.

The motion picture industry is rife with awakened souls who consistently channel energies that exist outside the confines of our 3D physical environment. It is these pioneers who are the creators of fantastically imaginative works of art such as Star Trek, War of the Worlds, and Close Encounters of the Third Kind. (I still make that mountain with my mashed potatoes, every time they appear on a plate in front of me.)

Have you ever stopped to wonder where all that material came from?  Just some guy (or gal)’s imagination?  Yes. But there’s more to it than that.

These creators are channeling images, moods, tones and symbols from those who are watching this big Earth Experiment, awaiting the chance to contribute pieces of the lives that they live on other planets and in other dimensions.  I give my credence to these creators—some of whom don’t even know they’re channeling—still believing that their otherworldly inventions were the result of luck, or at best, being in the creative zone on a good day.

Most of Hollywood’s “aliens” (I use this word intentionally here, as it evokes a sense of fear and anxiety in the population) are malevolent.  They’re here to bleach us of resources, clear the planet of humanity as if we are locusts, or use us as slaves to do their bidding (that one’s not far from the truth right now.) It’s only pretty recently that producers are portraying softer interactions with extraterrestrials (see how this word could denote benevolence?). Movies like Contact, Arrival, and The Shape of Water are showing the more loving side of unified beings desiring to share their knowledge with us, even if they don’t share the human form.

Now most governments (we’ll exclude some such as Russia and most of South America) have been doing their best to cover up the relentless array of evidence that supports the existence of extraterrestrials visiting our planet. My own father, a pilot in the US Air Force, had exposure to them, but it was not to be spoken of at the dinner table. Everyone knew they existed, yet fear of retaliation from some omniscient Big Brother kept them from speaking up.

So why do we have this conflicting information about whether or not extraterrestrials exist?

It boils down to two reasons:

  1. Just as there are benevolent and malevolent humans, there exists the whole gamut of extraterrestrials with varying  intentions as well.  Have you ever gone to a school where every single student was good?  Or to a venue where every single person was bad?  No, there’s a mixture, based on life experiences and perception of the value of life of the participants in the scenario.  This condition extends to those living off-planet as well. Some value life, and others do not.
  2. Confusion. If humanity were completely convinced one way or the other, then those who “rule” us would lose their power over us. That uncertainty on the public’s part keeps it thirsty for any information coming from external sources.  This behavior precludes one thinking for oneself, and keeps the population in a state of fear.

Look at what happened in movies like Independence Day.

Humanity rallies, and fights back. This, of course, doesn’t fare well for the government, who loses its power over the people when they had to enlist civilian assistance to whip the bad guys and send them back home.

The fear of a greater force that can obliterate humanity with one Directed Energy Weapon can create patriotism among previously-separated socio-economic strata.  The bums and the billionaires are leveled out when the bad guy has bigger weapons than Earth’s money can buy.

Hollywood plays its part, in suggesting that there is a way to unify the masses while fighting the bigger foe.

The government, on the other hand, would deny the existence of other-world entities, since these entities are covertly running the government itself.  If you wanted to stay on the DL, you would create lots of smoke and mirrors elsewhere, diverting attention so that the masses will forget about why they were asking, and leave you alone to rule them.

Do they exist?  No, says the government.  Yes, says Hollywood (and anyone else who has any sort of higher connection with Source.) Yes? No?  Yes? No.

This  unanswered question, and the consistent discord around it, creates confusion and maintains separation and disparity among humanity.  “Of course there are no aliens, you’re safe here. Now go back to work and don’t worry about a thing.”

Of course, I’m oversimplifying here.  I want you to think for yourself about how you feel about a ruling body that keeps things from you, or if you even care. Need it run your life, either way?

Can you live a life without worrying about a more powerful force descending upon you like a giant shoe squishing bugs beneath it?  Could you consider yourself as the creator of this giant scenario, all in the name of self-expression while learning about Who You Are?

When you take back your own power, you view your world from a state of peace and compassion for everyone’s unique role in this Earth experiment—and you envision life working out for everybody—then there is no force that can overpower you, whether that force appears in a human body, or in another form that looks “alien” to you.

New Earth has no secrets
Awakening Rants, Featured, Life on Earth, Oneness,

New Earth: Can You Live a Life With No Secrets?

What do you hide from the world?

Think about your deepest secrets.  Those little white lies from the past; an occurrence when you were the silent victim; the time the cashier gave you too much change, and you kept it…

Living in our previously low-energy world, humanity thrived on secrecy.  From ridiculous C-level salaries, to what happens in a President’s bedroom, society exchanged its darkest energy behind closed doors and from within sketchy clandestine groups.

And I’m sure you can see where that has gotten us.  We are on the verge of the release of thousands of sealed indictments and the exposure of the most horrific display of dark actions, and most humans will be irreversibly shocked at the magnitude of secrecy that endured for hundreds of years, right under their noses, by those that they trust.

Transparency will be the new black after this information is dispersed. Secrecy is on its way out. But that’s other people, and what they did.  It’s got nothing to do with you, right?

You are just as responsible as the perpetrators for this secrecy, for “As Within, So Without.”

That’s quite a claim I made right there, and sure to invite some verbal backlash.  I get it.  I’m just as responsible as you are for the whole situation. And we are the ones who are changing it for the better.

 

It all starts with you, and what you’re hiding. It starts with your personal integrity.

If you chose to incarnate as a Lightworker, part of your mission is the mastery of integrity in all situations.

Integrity is “the state of being whole and undivided.” Not just about telling your “truth” about something, but choosing words, intentions and deeds that promote the best and highest good, in every situation in which you find yourself, for all involved.

So let’s go a bit deeper and talk about what role secrecy’s opposite—transparency—will play in the New Earth.

We always draw to ourselves others of similar vibration. You might call them “kindred souls,” or “soul family,” or maybe just someone you feel like you’ve met before. Maybe you can even finish each others’ sentences!  That’s because you have met before. They are all other versions of YOU, experiencing life from their particular perspective. When you come together and share thoughts on a non-verbal level, you integrate.

And the more thoughts you share with more people, the more transparent you will want your life to become.  You are constantly broadcasting your feelings, your moods and your attitude to the entire collective (yet most people still forget how to read it), which includes not only the fun stuff like happiness and joy, but also your anger, jealousy and fear.

See, dogs have maintained that skill to smell emotion, even after domestication! You have it too.

 

Do you expect honesty from others, and yet fail to extend it to everyone that you encounter?

Just as we are now demanding that the government share all information with its constituents, this also applies on an individual level.

As communication becomes more telepathic, expect more people to consciously read your energetic signature.  So if you have things you’d like to process, this might be a great time to weed your internal landscape.

If you’re surrounded by those who display dishonesty and lack of integrity, that won’t change until you embody those values yourself—with every person, all the time.  There will be great benefit in this, for we are better prepared to share our gifts with others from within a paradigm of openness and true compassion.

Plus, driving in traffic will be infinitely easier when you know when the guy in front of you is about to veer into your lane. 🙂

 

You got this. Love!

where do you feel ugliest?
Awakening Rants, Life on Earth, Oneness,

Where Does the Ugly in You Come Out? Go There More Often.

As you awaken, you raise your awareness of your own behavior.  Hopefully, you’ll recognize when you’ve done something nice, and praise yourself for it.  And when you do things that aren’t so nice, you’ll recognize it and aim for better “next time.”

So when will there be a “next time”?  I suggest you actively plan for those times by putting yourself in the places where you’re challenged the most.

The places where you feel most vulnerable, most inadequate, most unnerved by the situation.  Where the people scare you, where your “comparison” muscle gets the most action. Go there.  Face it.

For me, it’s the gym.

I live in Hollywood, California, so I’m sure I don’t need to explain much about the scenery around here.  And going to the gym, which is regularly populated with 6′ freaks of nature disguised as models and actors, can send me into a negative vortex of inadequacy. These fairy-like people who bend themselves into knots in every yoga pose imaginable, and lift more weight than I do, and look good doing it.

The hardest part?

Most of them are NICE.

That’s the kicker, eh?  I’d love to hate them for their perfection, their contribution to the continuation of the unrealistic ideal standards by which our society measures beauty.  I’d love to sneer and scoff and compare.

But all of those negative feelings I experience: comparisons of worthiness and value in our jacked-up society, my personal insecurities, and sometimes just plain despair…are simply MY feelings, and they don’t represent the people I’m viewing at all.

Facing these feelings head on allows you to redesign your attitude about being around those who challenge you.  Hiding from them will magnify your insecurities later. So go there, and experience it head on.  Bring each insecurity to light, and ask yourself if it serves you, or if you can let that go.

And you might find out that those you were afraid of, comparing yourself to, and avoiding, are people with their own insecurities, who long to be loved and accepted just as much as you do.

Go do that shit!

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 you don't feel like giving

Those Days When You Don’t Feel Like Giving

Learning to give is a prevalent lesson for humans in our day and time.  Yet there are times when you just don’t feel like giving to anyone. And that’s OK.

Life will provide you with tons of situations in which to determine who you are.  By making choices, you define yourself and gauge the magnitude of your expansion by the consequences you experience from those decisions.  Although at times we can perceive life as torturous, it’s the whole reason we came to Earth.

That’s why our Higher Selves send us little tests, to see how far we’ve come in our expansion. One of the most popular situations I see lately is someone asking for money.

So are you required to hand something out to every person who asks for it because you want to pass your self test?  I know that for me, living in Los Angeles, that could amount to a lot of money, since I walk nearly everywhere.  As we discussed in an earlier post about the act of giving, it doesn’t matter who you are giving to, or what they will do with what you gave them.

It is the way that you handle the situation that the “larger you” is gauging.  Did you handle the situation with integrity, or did you take the easy way out?

I bet you’ve done it.  I know that I’ve done it:

Someone asks you for money on the street, and you tap your pockets, indicating they’re empty, and say, “Sorry, I don’t have any money.”

But you really do.

So what happened here?  Society teaches us to take the easy route, escaping from uncomfortable confrontations such as these.  Say whatever you have to say and get the hell out of there, right?

I get it.  There are some people who will love to have even your partially-divided attention long enough to tell you all about how they can make whistles that only dogs could hear.  And sometimes you truly don’t have the time to listen.

Yet telling them a lie serves no one.  There are other ways to deal with such situations that maintain that positive flow of energy that Lightworkers are tasked to deliver.

Let’s try the scenario again:

You pass someone on the street who asks for a couple of bucks.  He’s kind, and he’s respecting your space. You are in a hurry, though, and although you do have a couple of bucks, it’s all you have in your wallet. Honoring him as a human being of equal value, you could look into his eyes, and answer:

“Sorry, not today.”

With this three-word answer, you’ve declined his offer with full respect for him as someone in need, yet today is not the day for you to give.  There’s always another day, and that leaves things in a positive tone on both sides.  You have maintained your integrity, and he may have a little more faith in humanity for a kindness he probably doesn’t experience all that often.

Remember, Lightworker, you represent the Family of Light, whose purpose is to cast high-frequency energy to all around you. Maintaining that high vibration serves not only you (you manifest things faster!) but everyone else in your surroundings, which extend further than you imagine.
