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.

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.

Don’t Take it Personally

Life becomes frustrating when you take everything personally. Someone doesn’t hold the door open for you as you walk in a store, you immediately are offended & label them rude. Someone forgets to pick up their plate & put it in the sink, you’re angry bc for some odd reason you see this as a personal attack on you. A friend runs a little late to a lunch date & you’re annoyed bc you fail to see there might be a legitimate reason this has happened. Someone says something you deem “offensive”, but did you ever consider YOU may have taken it the wrong way? There’s 7billion people living on earth, if you think that everyone has received your personal “book of rules & conduct” that tells them exactly how you expect them to behave in any given situation, I assure you, they didn’t. Sometimes people just forget things, sometimes people just run late, sometimes people forget to say “please” or “thank you”, and it has nothing to do with you.. We’re human, we’re not perfect. People don’t need you to criticize them or put them down or yell at them.. What they need is empathy, empathize that they’re human & just b/c they didn’t behave exactly like YOU think they should have, doesn’t mean they are wrong. If you made a mistake you would want some empathy, compassion & forgiveness, right? Don’t take everything as a personal attack.. It makes life so much more difficult than it needs to be. Have an amazing night!

 

They are Not the Problem, You Are

No one can MAKE you feel any certain way, if you don’t choose to. So many people are walking around thinking that other people are doing things TO them, while not realizing that they are the ones generating their own thoughts, feelings and perspectives on a situation. What a frustrating life to lead… to think that other people are in control of your emotions so much that any slip up by them will have the power to make you mad, sad, depressed, or even happy. When you root yourself in your own awareness and consciousness, you are able to see past the judgments of “good” or “bad” or “right” and “wrong”, and allow things to just be. It doesn’t mean you’re perfect always, but you allow your feelings and emotions to guide you into self awareness. You know that when you’re immediate reaction to things is anger, that your consciousness is showing you something you need to work on inside of YOURSELF, not something you need to change about another person. Try and put yourself in another person’s shoes, try and see things from their perspective too instead of only focusing on your OWN perspective as the absolute, ultimate truth. Your perspective is just that… YOUR perspective. It may not apply to everyone. You think you are punishing other people by getting mad at them calling them names or screaming or getting revenge on them etc…, but you are only punishing yourself. Stress, anger and frustration will punish you more than it will punish them, because you are the one who has to live with the low vibratory energies running through your system. Start looking at life through a broader perspective, everyone is operating from their own “truth” and this realization makes it so much easier to move through life and get along with other people. 🙂
