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.

Overcoming Self-Defeating Habits Energetically

enlightenimage5

You know all of those things you do on a daily, or maybe it’s weekly or monthly basis that you feel completely ashamed about and remorseful after you do them? Maybe it’s indulging in way too much processed foods even though you know the detrimental effects they have on your body, or maybe it’s the occasional cigarette even though you technically “quit” months ago. As we’ve all heard by now, our subconscious belief systems are what determine our reality and what choices we make a majority of the time. So how do we use this plus the laws of energy in order to unravel these self-defeating habits once and for all? The answer (as always in this spiritual journey).. duh duh duhhhh LOVE. The integration of the ego (awakening process) is about unraveling each judgment we have against ourselves, so that we may be brought back into alignment with our divine nature or also known as unconditional love. The things you can’t seem to “stop” doing are actually the things in which you have spent the most “energy” judging yourself because of. Let’s say you have been on a ‘diet’ of some sort your whole life, well that’s a lot of time and energy spent focused around food AND not to mention, how many times have you used food as a means to either judge yourself as “good” or “bad”(when I eat the broccoli I’m good, but the brownie I’m bad)? In the game of energy, the only thing that can heal and transform our judgments is love. So in order to break through unhealthy patterns we must first use complete honesty as our guide as to where the place inside of our heart that needs love the most in order to heal. In the case of the dieter who wants to stop eating, the most honest confession firstly may sound something like, “I don’t know how to stop judging myself because of the foods I eat, I surrender this issue to the light of divinity to resolve on my behalf” (and at this point send love to this judgment) Or for those with a spiritually decorated ego structure, we’ve all heard that judgment and non-self love is ‘bad’ and not appropriate for the spiritual seeker that we are, so we may even say, “I don’t know to stop judging myself FOR judging myself about what foods I eat, I surrender this to the light of divinity to resolve on my behalf, I love you judgment, I love you.” Now, here’s the “tricky” part. You must be completely fine with making any decision you want to make after that, if the next day you eat a plate full of brownies, Enjoy them! And keep enjoying and sending love to EVERY DECISION YOU MAKE, and every feeling you have thus after. Once the ego is no longer being judged because of the decisions it’s making, no one is chastising it for anything, the need to make these decisions no longer is needed. Who wants to act bad when no one is telling you your behavior is bad anymore? But if you eat the brownies and you still feel that overwhelming pang of judgment on yourself, then it’s back to step one, loving the judgment, loving the judgment of the judgment, etc. Once ALLLLLL feelings, judgments belief systems are loved UNCONDITIONALLY, our higher self expands which translates into “bad” habits or behaviors dropping naturally. NO effort required! So just love everything about yourself. Nothing is “bad” until you have named it as such, and one day you will have loved yourself so much that having an occasional brownie won’t even make you flinch, nor will eating healthy/being healthy all day long either. NO judgment, all love, you are more powerful than you think 🙂

Losing Who You Thought You Were, Discovering Who You Truly ARE

There will be a time on your spiritual journey where you become unrecognizable to your own self. Things that used to upset you, no longer bother you. People that used to bring about negative emotional reactions from you, either drop out of your life naturally, or you notice their behavior changes. Their behavior is different because you are different. The world as you used to see it no longer exists, because your relationship with yourself has changed, thereby changing your perspective of life. This may feel a little disconcerting at first. The declutching from our own egos and minds may feel slightly strange and unnerving because we are quite literally learning how to navigate through the world from our new sense of self. Our old self is a thing of the past, and when we don’t find ourselves reacting in the same old way to the same old problems we may feel like we are completely losing a sense of who we are. If this is the stage that you are at, Perfect! This means your consciousness is evolving. As long as we remain completely open and accepting of this new stage in our evolution it will take us to states of being we have not previously been at. Yes, it may be scary at first. We had become so attached to our things, and people, and our beliefs about ourselves, that when the attachments start to break we feel a little shaky. If we allow this inner peace to emerge, one that is no longer attached to the illusory “sense of self”, and to external reality, we find that an overwhelming sense of calm overtakes us. An authentic version of our being begins to emerge showing us that all those things that we thought we “needed” or were worried about, were never anything to stress about in the first place. Life is moving us along in the exact path we are supposed to be on if only we become comfortable in the “unknowingness” of it all. We are starting to feel states of consciousness that we have not previously experienced, and our only task is to trust that it is bringing us to a place of embodying more of our true selves, which ultimately means more happiness, love and inner peace for ourselves and those around us.

The Lesson Lies in Your Perception

Very often we come across situations in life or people that make us ask, “Why is this happening to me??!” Well, there is always a lesson to be learned… and the lesson lies in your perception. How you perceive a situation or a person is the answer to the question. For example, let’s say you get fired from your job. Your perception of the situation is anger, resentment, and a “how could they do this to me” point of view. In this instance, one must A. accept the ‘what is’- which is that they were fired. This is the fact, and this is the only thing that is true, even though our ego would like to build up a story about the “why” it happened, for instance, we may start saying to ourselves, “The boss is an idiot, they were jealous of me & they knew I knew more than them, so they fired me” or you may say, “Ughhhh, I can’t get anything right! I must have done something wrong and they fired me”…. both stories are the ego’s way of reinforcing a deep rooted belief, by building up it’s own reason in our minds. However, it may not be true. Or it may be true. We really do not know for sure. So if we stay focused on the ‘what is”, we learn the art of accepting a situation as it is. The next thing we are required to do in order to extract the “lesson” from any given event, is to really pay attention to these stories our ego is saying. Are the stories reinforcing a belief that we are too good, or that we aren’t good enough, or that others are out to get us, etc… These “stories” are the indication to what we need to work on. They all stem from a fear that needs to be confronted. Most likely in a situation such as a lost job, the fear would be that we are not worthy, that we are invaluable or that we are not ‘good enough’. Since our ego doesn’t want to see itself as the “problem”, it will start blaming the company, the boss, another co-worker etc… Or, maybe our ego is the one that always sees itself as the problem, in a case of a “low-self esteem” ego. In this instance our ego may take everything personally & it always assumes fault as the reason for any trouble in our lives. In either case, our perception of a situation is the indicator as to something we need to work on, a place that we are holding on to some fear. The only answer is to love ourselves unconditionally… love even the part of us that fears not being enough, not being valuable, or the one that fears others being jealous of them or that fears shining it’s light too bright. Once we have loved the part of us that is afraid, the fear can no longer bother us. At this point we can start transmuting the fear back in to high vibration love energy. We must stay focused on the “what is”… Even if the ‘what is” is that we are afraid to vulnerable, we are afraid to trust, whatever it may be. Only in complete and utter honesty with ourselves are we able to get to the root of our issues. Once we start resonating more in love instead of fear, we will find that our lives start to flow more smoothly. We can handle life’s ups and downs as they come without too much resistance and we also find that we were in fact not running our lives at all. There is always a higher intelligence at work, one that is trying to move us forward at the fastest rate possible. In the complete trust of this higher intelligence, we realize that even though some situation may look bad on the outside, something good ALWAYS comes from any perceived bad event. Our only task is to keep being honest with ourselves, keep loving ourselves UNCONDITIONALLY, and trusting that we will always be moving forward as long as stop resisting life as it comes. Lessons are moved through at lightning speed once we start to become acutely aware of how our ego processes each situation… The lesson lies in your perception.

You Have Attracted All Relationships for a Reason

Every relationship you have in your life right now you have attracted to you for a reason. Each person in your life is reflecting back to you an aspect of yourself. Normally, the relationships that you have attracted that you are having the most trouble with, either because the person brings about a negative, angry, or irritating emotional reaction from you, are the ones that mirroring back to you an unhealed aspect of your unconscious mind. Your ego, afraid to be “found out”, is pointing the finger outside of itself to others as the “problem” so that it can keep the spotlight off of itself. As long as we stay focused on what others are doing TO us, we never come to terms with our own perceptions (which are stemming from the illusory self/the ego). Our perceptions of others are purely from our OWN programming and ego NOT from the behavior of another person. If you are trying to understand the reason certain people are in your life, and what this can teach you about yourself, the answer lies in your perception of them. Maybe you perceive this person as not accepting of you, in which case, you must turn it around on yourself and ask,  “why don’t I fully accept myself?” If you truly accepted yourself, someone else’s perceived non-acceptance would not irritate you. Or maybe you perceive someone as not understanding you, or not empathizing with you and showing you compassion. So turn it around on yourself, “Where am I not understanding my own self, and showing myself unconditional love and compassion to myself?” It is only when we love ourselves UNCONDITIONALLY, meaning EVEN loving the parts of ourselves that feel anger, jealousy, sadness, unworthiness etc… Love all these aspects of “self”. Once you have accepted and loved all these perceived “shortcomings” they can no longer bother you. They become healed. Hating and denying our shortcomings will perpetuate the problem of us hating and finding shortcomings in the people we have relationships with in our lives. Once we come to terms with our own self and heal our own psyche and realize the ego is not our true self, we naturally heal our relationships with others. We stop being angered by their reflecting back to us where we still haven’t come to terms with our own unconscious mind. Be honest with yourself. Question yourself, always. Point the finger back inside of you instead of out into the world… this is the most powerful thing you can do to heal the relationships in your life.

Your Wisdom is Your Beauty

When you surrender to your pain and suffering, it will eventually become your wisdom & inner strength. And this strength & wisdom will eventually become your beauty. Too many people trying to look good on the outside without fixing themselves on the inside too. The most beautiful people aren’t the ones who walk into the room desperately seeking for attention nor the ones who need constant validation and approval by telling every single person they meet everything about themselves in hopes that another persons attention or validation might make them accept themselves a little more. True beauty comes from being humble, open minded yet reserved, a light shines from within them that people gravitate towards but it’s not a light that is seeking attention from other people. Beauty comes from people who speak kindly about other people when they can, and talk about what they love instead of bashing what they hate, someone who is passionate about something, and isn’t jaded, bitter, cynical or angry, but still sees the world with a sense of excitement and wonder and mystery. We all have these wonderful qualities inside of us, they will amplify the minute we choose to love and accept ourselves as we are instead of focusing too much on how to make other people love and accept us. When you love and accept yourself first, you give yourself freedom to be yourself, which is a liberating experience. At this point you have nothing to prove to anyone, and you realize other people’s thoughts and opinions of you are none of your business, bc as long as you accept yourself then that’s all that matters. Have a beautiful day!!
