We are all connected.
We are all one. The energy of Spirit/God/ Goddess/All That Is flows
through us all. This energy is the difference between life and
death. When we are alive, we have this energy flowing through us.
This is why Spirit/God/Goddess/All That Is is called “The
Creator”--it creates us or gives us life.
There is enough to
We are smart enough and have enough resources to provide for every
living thing. Remember we are all one. What we do to others we do to
ourselves. Share. Help others. Appreciate others. Be kind. They
are you. Remember: you receive from the world what you give to
the world. What you want, give away, and it will come home to you.
We create our
Our thoughts and beliefs create our reality, and our thoughts &
beliefs are a result of how we choose to perceive. We
choose. We can choose our state of mind when we are not reacting
from our past stuck traumas. We choose our thoughts, our emotions, &
our actions. Therefore, we create our reality; we are responsible
for what is occurring. Remember: it is what you BE that determines
who you are, not what you do. We need to be what it is we say
is critical. This means we are aligned with our soul and our
purpose. Alignment means we are in touch with our higher selves, our
soul, our oneness and we, therefore, will do the ethical, non-egoic
thing. If we act from an aligned place, we are also doing what is
“right” for others, because when we are aligned, we are also
connected to others with the energy of God/Goddess/Spirit/All That
Is. Our past can prevent alignment.
Everything has an energetic body which is impacted by its physical,
spiritual, and (if appropriate) emotional states. Understanding the
condition of our energetic body facilitates an understanding of how
to align with our spirit and our soul purpose. Our energy is a
reflection of our state of mind, spirit, and physical body and our
state of mind, spirit, physical body impacts what occurs with our
energy. Systems, groups, and organizations also have an energetic
body. This, too, can be understood and aligned. We are influenced by
the energy of those around us. Awareness is critical if we want to
maintain ourselves and our alignment when we are in the presence of
others who are not in line. Working with our energy and seeing that
it stays aligned in these situations, helps us to reduce negative
It is impossible not to have an impact. Knowing this, and
knowing that we are all connected (all one), it is important to be
aware of what we do and how that impacts others and the universe.
Awareness creates responsibility and choice. It requires
observation of and honesty to ourselves and to others
regarding what we see and feel.
The dichotomy of life creates our understanding of life. Our
sadness, anger, or discomfort help us to understand happiness, love
and comfort. They provide us with the understanding we need to
evolve. Just as Jesus and Hitler give us dichotomous ideas regarding
what we can choose to be like as a human. Understanding the
dichotomy provides us with choice, provided we are “conscious.”
Love, Fear and Pain
If you boil emotions down, there are only a few primary emotions:
love, fear, and pain. The others are secondary emotions (anger,
hatred, joy, envy, depression, anxiety, guilt), which usually result
from primary emotions. For example, hate and anger are often a way
of avoiding pain or fear. Facing primary emotions directly assists
in healing. Secondary emotions keep us stuck because they block the
Our emotions are the key to healing. If we are present with our
emotions, we are healing. If we are resisting, denying or doing
something so we don’t experience what is happening, we are
increasing stress, and resisting the healing process. We need to
learn to listen to ourselves. This requires recognizing and being
present with what is, with an open heart. This does not mean we are
necessarily comfortable, for sometimes life lies beyond what is
comfortable. We need to learn to accept ourselves just as we are. As
we become more comfortable with our discomfort, our pain, our fears,
and limitations we become more free. Be willing to dig deep. Flow
with the essence of who we are and be in the here and now.
Our emotions are impacted by our experience with, and our
attachments to, our past. Our past can include unknown and
unconscious patterns, behaviors, and emotions taken on from our
ancestors. Attachment to the past can dull our ability to listen to
and love ourselves, and thus limits our ability to resonate and
follow our soul purpose. It is important to understand ourselves
and the patterns that exist as a result of our past pains and hurts.
These pains inhibit our ability to live in the here and now. These
pains and patterns can be understood and released. When they are
released, we can see and feel more clearly, and are free to love
ourselves and follow our soul path.
When a tuning fork vibrates, it sets up a vibration in surrounding
matter. This is resonance. When you resonate with a task, plan or
vision, you have the same frequency and are thus in alignment with
it. Assessing if there is resonance in any activity requires getting
out of the head (thinking) and into the body—being in the moment.
When you don’t resonate with something and still take action, you
are forcing or willing action, which is in opposition to flow. When
you force action, you most likely cause suffering for yourself and
others; you are not at peace. Actions are not in alignment, so the
outcome is not as productive. When you resonate with what you do, a
sense of peace pervades the work. Synchronicity, coincidence and
positive outcomes are more likely in this state.
Thankfulness and Forgiveness
are the emotions that lead to the most contentment in life. Being in
the place of gratitude removes us from the place of being a victim.
And it draws to you even more of that for which we are thankful,
which in turn produces even more contentment. Being a victim keeps
us stuck in old patterns and loyalties. Forgiveness allows us to
shift from being a victim to moving forward in our lives. Practice
gratitude and forgiveness daily.
We are all attempting to evolve. It is possible to find joy in all
of it--in order to do this, we have to get “out” of ourselves; we
need to observe ourselves; practice not taking ourselves so
seriously; see our connection to others and spirit, meditate,
understand death (for then we can appreciate all of life). Observe
the learnings and the positives experienced through the difficult.
And be thankful for the difficulties and resulting lessons.
