Is there such a thing as being ‘too’ informed?; The sneaky way too much information takes away our happiness…

“There is nothing either good or bad but thinking makes it so.”-William Shakespeare

Activism is making a comeback in today’s world. We live in a time where information is traded and readily available to us at the click of a button, so it’s no surprise that things like conspiracy theories, government files, news stories and injustices happening all over the globe are being dissected & analyzed by all those who pride themselves on being “informed.” Traveling deep into the web of information on the internet can have us uncovering reports from anything to the world is actually flat to the government is dropping chemicals in the sky that are dumbing us down to be mindless sheep. But is being so “informed” helping us or actually working against us?

The truth of the matter and ironically the truth about actual physical matter is that energy is everything. Nothing actually exists outside of the energetic signature it represents in our play of reality. Each thing, every news story, every person, every place represents a symbol of consciousness that we have either assigned power to, or dismissed as not relevant. But here’s the kicker, the symbols of consciousness in MY reality, are not going to be the same in YOURS, the belief system of the individual sets the rules! What this means is, just because someone may believe that the chemtrails they see in the sky (for example) are the reason they are sick or tired or feeling out of sorts, doesn’t mean that HAS to be true in your world. You are the most powerful being in your dimension of consciousness (your world, your ‘reality’), which means your BELIEFS are what life is shaped around, not the other way around! The more we “believe” in terrorism, chemtrails, illuminati, chemicals in the food, are ruining our lives, our health, our safety & peace of mind, the more our conscious mind is prompted to find evidence of such. In the example above, a person blaming their flu-like symptoms on chemtrails is essentially the same as someone blaming the fact that they killed their ex on mercury in retrograde. In each person’s reality the things they have given their POWER AWAY to are what are being blamed for adversity, and tecnically both are “right” (since each person gets to set the belief systems they have given their attention to in their world). In essence, the more one believes in things outside of them having the ability to take away their safety, inner peace, freedom, health, the more they will attract situations that prove to them this subconscious belief.

Take back your power. What are the things, or rather belief systems that you have given your power away to that are responsible for making you feel unhappy? “Women never get paid as much as men, that’s why I can’t succeed,”, “No one will ever like someone like me,” “The world is run by criminals, they are taking away our freedom and everyone is dumb enough to let them,” are some common belief systems that sneakily take away our power. The goal is to believe in the benevolence of the universe and the power that resides within. What many activists and those that spread conspiracy information etc… don’t realize is that they are supporting the very causes they seem to hate! By supporting the very notion that there is something to fight “against” actually re-enforces the alleged strength of their perceived enemy! If a million people got on-line and started to say “fight against the leaves on trees! The government is putting poison in the leaves and it’s making people sick! Don’t touch any trees, they’re a hoax planted by the goverment to kill us!” Eventually people are going to start at least be slightly doubtful of the world in general and those that really go in will start to believe in the malicious and powerfulness of the government and the trees! This attention and belief being focused on something OTHER THAN THEMSELVES only diminishes their own faith in a higher intelligence that resides within and the power they themselves have to create their reality through their belief systems. If you truly want to change the world, tell people to go within, find their inner strength, their authentic nature and believe in themselves. Tell people they have the power to be happy, fulfilled, to feel content and at peace NO MATTER WHAT outside reality looks like. But show compassion, not every one you meet in life will have the same mindset as this, for instance let’s say you meet a starving person, this is where we must take a solution oriented approach. If you meet a starving person, and you have food, feed them. You never know how your kindness and compassion of another human being might be just the catalyst they needed to begin to have faith in the benevolence of the universe again. May you all be blessed with the reclaiming of your power from every person, place, and thing you have given it away to.

This one question reveals how aligned with mastery you are

“You’ll get everything you want, when having it doesn’t matter.”-Matt Kahn

 

Your perspective is what ultimately holds the key in unlocking newer and higher possibilities and outcomes for your life. Notice those with a limited perspective will often blame alleged adversities on things such as, “I guess I just attract toxic people,” or “I guess I’m just a failure and not good at accomplishing things,” or even “I guess this is just how life is, things are just going to suck for me.” Whereas, those with a more expanded level of consciousness and imagination will look at the same types of adversity and say things such as, “this is only showing up in my life to help me in some way, so what has this situation taught me about myself?” or “If something didn’t work out as I planned it must be for a very good reason. The universe within me only has my best interests at heart, so if something isn’t working it may be time to redirect my focus” or “what can I extract from this situation that has given me a better idea of what I want out of life (or a person or a job) or even, what I DON’T want out of life or a person or a job?” The more expanded your “truth” is, the more you allow miraculous solutions to your adversities into your reality.  The question you must ask yourself in any given situation is this: “How happy does my “truth” (or in reality your perspective of a situation) make me?” When we look at things in terms of , “I guess I just suck, this is how things are, and there’s no hope of things getting better for me” we come to a very miserable outlook on our life’s circumstances. This definitive, “things just suck for me,” outlook actually blocks out higher potential outcomes to come in, because a belief is what sets the parameters for the rules of our “game”. Truth be told, things like misery, fear, sadness or frustration are actually showing you how OUT OF alignment you are with source energy that lives within you, aka your inner mastery. Notice the more aligned you are with mastery and source energy the more your perspective allows for you to be aligned with faith, trust, joy, relaxation, ease, and inner peace, no matter what happens! Faith is something that takes years to cultivate and the less inclined we are to control every outcome and trust the universe, the more power the universe gives us to consciously manifest outcomes. It’s all a very ironic game of, the more you NEED something to happen in order to be happy, the farther you are away from getting it, but the more you allow yourself to feel joy and fulfillment REGARDLESS of what is happening in your outer reality, the more inclined the universe is to bring you more and more things to celebrate and enjoy!

Why you don’t have what you want…

Think of it this way: the universe loves you so much it won’t give you what you want yet. “Wait, huh?? That doesn’t make sense.I thought the universe loves me and my soul’s deepest wishes are it’s deepest desires for me. Doesn’t the universe WANT me to be happy??” Absolutely. And that’s why it won’t just hand you what you want… yet. Imagine a five year old child that is begging for the keys to the family car so that it can go out for a drive. Now in that moment, the child believes that the keys to that car are going to make him/her happy and that is their deepest wish. But the more emotionally mature and evolved parent knows that letting their five year old drive the car will only mean disaster, so, even though the child is screaming and crying in despair, they withhold the keys. The parent knows that soon enough, when the child is old enough to drive a car safely and in a manner that he/she won’t kill themselves or cause serious damage to their life, they will get those keys, and such is our life. The universe so badly wants to give us what we want, and it knows that what we want is coming, but in an act of unconditional love for us, it can’t give it to us if we are not at a place where said thing is going to add to our life vs. being in our worst interest. Imagine the insecure character who is desperately trying manifest their soulmate. They think, “I will feel good about myself when I can get someone else to love me, but until then I’ll hate myself and wish things were different.” And the universe within us watches and waits. It waits for us to come into alignment with fulfillment on our own accord regardless of what is happening outside of us to send us the partner. The fact of the matter is, nothing is ever going to fulfill us… nothing outside of us that is. Any car, spouse, house, job we get will eventually become just another thing that we replace, lose, become bored with, or try to get rid of. To many that may sound like a depressing statement, but in all actuality, what this really means for our lives is that the source of all happiness and fulfillment lies within us. When fulfillment comes from within our own being, and isn’t dependent upon an outside outcome or set of circumstances, the material possessions we acquire, relationships we experience, and successes we enjoy can actually be enjoyed for as long as they last, and when the time comes for them to go, we let them. The awakening consciousness within us is not attached to any outcome for fulfillment. This is why those going through the awakening process often experience a loss of interest in what they thought they “wanted” out of life. This is the universes’ sign that we are beginning to lose attachments to people, places and things outside of us as the source of our happiness. This is a good thing. You’ll still get what you want, and experience the life you are destined to experience, but only at the point where you no longer think you “need” it. Look at your present moment and say thank you. This is the universe giving you exactly what you need and are prepared energetically to experience while also prepping and priming you for newer and better experiences to come. You are here in this place in time because this is exactly where you need to be, nothing ever goes wrong, and everything that is happening should be happening. May you be blessed with unconditional acceptance of every moment of your life and fulfillment of your soul’s deepest wishes and desire from now until infinity, and so it is 🙂

The World is Only Reflecting Back to You What You Are

defeatimage3

Have you ever noticed that happy, peaceful people seem to see a world that is becoming more loving, accepting and open minded? And people who seem to be negative or are always complaining about things seem to be convinced that this world is “going to hell in a handbasket.” Why do you think that is? What many do not realize is that the world is only a reflection of our inner world. The more shadow we have in our emotional and mental body the more shadow we see in the world. You can quite literally measure how well you are doing in your spiritual journey or personal development by focusing on your perception of the world and of others. When our light within grows we stop resonating with the “shadow” parts of the world and actually don’t see things from this perspective any longer. While some may say this is, “turning a blind eye,” those who are more rooted in their light don’t see it as a complete denial of the darkness, but rather from a broader perspective which allows them to see the good and the divine in all things. From a higher and more loving level of awareness, people who are committing crimes or nations at war with one another are seen as cries for help from nations of people who are in so much suffering and pain that their only outlet is to fight with one another. However, even though the world is not yet “perfect” (whatever that means),  we are discarding old energies through all of these travesties in the world. Nothing is happening that is not supposed to be happening. When we are more rooted in shadow we find ourselves at war with life, and approaching each moment as “this should NOT be happening,” it needs to STOP. When we are rooted in light and awareness we see that all things are happening FOR our benefit. In a benevolent universe, nothing happens that is not evolving us to the next stage of our spiritual growth and bringing us closer to unconditional love. Take the time today to reflect on what angers you about the world and others still. See how you might see this situation from a different perspective, or how the emotions brought up in you because of these situations are only your heart crying out for your own unconditional compassion and love for yourself. When we become the only thing we are concerned about, the world around us begins to change automatically.

Amplify the Good in Your life

What you choose to focus on with your energy and attention in your mind is what will amplify in your external reality. We are all living in the same world, although there are some of us that have laser focused on all the “bad” parts. When you choose to see the world through the lens that everything is “bad”, “terrible” or “not going my way”, you only put a spotlight on all things negative, and actually start to draw to you more seemingly negative circumstances. However when you put your attention to what you are grateful for, you amplify those things in your life. Choose to see all the good life is giving you in this present moment. It doesn’t matter how “big” or “small” a blessing is, just choose to focus on them and that is what will start becoming more visible to you in your external world. All it takes is a shift in perspective to start being happier. Trust that whatever circumstance the universe has given you in this moment is for your greater good.. EVERY circumstance. From our limited perspective we may not always be able to see the bigger picture behind the “why” things in our life happen, but we always have the choice to see things in the positive light or the negative.

If It Has the Power to Anger You, There is a Part of You That Believes It Is True

Anything that is able to bring about a negative emotional reaction from you, whether it be anger, frustration, annoyance, criticism etc… is a sign that there is an issue w/ yourself (your ego) that needs to be addressed. Nothing that you don’t deep down somewhat believe will be able to bring about a negative reaction. The ego, in attempting to self-preserve, will try to blame the anger on the behavior of the other person. Next time something really brings up anger or rage or annoyance in you (and that includes people, groups of people, or maybe a past event), instead of blaming them, ask yourself “what part of my ego is offended by this? Where am I holding on to an attachment about my sense of self that this person threatens?” This is one of the toughest habits to get in when you start on the path of self awareness. But the positive aspect of always pointing the finger back on yourself is this: A. You work through emotions much quicker, bc you actually deal with them yourself instead of expecting someone else to change THEIR behavior in order for YOU to be happy. B. there is a level of consciousness that exists where you see everything as perfect just as it is. You stop judging things as “right” or “wrong” and easily accept things as they are. This stems from accepting yourself as you are, when you accept yourself & believe in your own power to control your life you stop being angry & afraid that other people are taking away your freedom. Remember, only the ego can get mad, or be offended or be pissed off. So these emotions ALWAYS stem from your illusory “sense of self”, use these emotions as a perfect guide to where you still need work on YOURSELF. You will empower yourself in amazing ways when you choose to “Blame” your OWN ego for the emotions you have, not other people/places/things. Have an amazing Sunday!!

It’s Not What You Do, It’s Why You Do It…

“It doesn’t matter WHAT you do, it’s WHY you do it” – Howard Schultz
The details of your life don’t matter much. It”s the purpose behind them. The purpose behind your actions translates to the energy you are emitting when you make choices in your life. The universe and the law of attraction will favor the path you intend to go on when your purpose is love. Scan your “wants” list, see where in this list you are desiring something out of love, or out of fear. This goes for material things, relationships, job opportunities etc… For example, many people make the mistake of wanting money, a nice car, a huge home because they are wanting to promote their self image. As long as they have these things they think that others will believe they have “made it” and that will feed into their ego. Their purpose is competition and self promotion/validation. Whereas other people may want these same things because they they see money as a means to help others, or participate in hobbies they love or to travel to new places because they would love to see the world. These people have love behind their intention. Instead of asking the universe “what can you give me?” or “what can I get out of you?, ask it “How can I be of service to you?”, and “How can you use my behavior, my actions and my interactions with the world today to better serve your purpose?” When your intention and will becomes the same as the Universe’s, amazing things start to happen. You’ll know your will is in alignment with the Universe’s when the main intention behind your actions becomes love. Hope you guys have an amazing day

Expect Things to go Well

So many spend their lives planning for the worst. Don’t plan for the worst, expect the best. Your life is formed off your expectations. Yes it is true that unexpected things will happen, but when you already know that everything that happens to you is for the best (whether it’s exactly what you had planned or not) you are constantly in a state of living in the silver lining of life. However when you constantly plan for the worst, the message you are sending to the universe is “I still am trying to control things with what I think will be the best plan. I don’t trust that you have a better plan than I do. So I will constantly worry about what may or may not happen. I deep down believe that a bunch of shit is going to go wrong, I EXPECT things to go wrong.” Just know that everything is working out in your favor, right now, whether you can see it or not. It won’t always be easy, but the more you do it, you will start to realize everything really is working out perfectly. Don’t fight with life, don’t fight with the way things are going.. Follow the flow. Have an amazing day, EXPECT it!!
