The (Half) Truth Movement and How it Affects You

I’ve always been the type of person to question just about everything I was ever told. From a very young age, I sensed that what most adults were teaching me (even my actual school teachers) about society and my place in it, was not always necessarily true, but rather something that was either told to them that that’s how it is, or it was simply their own opinions and beliefs. Prior to this realization I had thought adults knew everything

But after asking too many questions about God one day in Sunday school, my Mother was told to never bring me back again, because my incessant questioning was disturbing the class. This didn’t make sense to me as I thought, “How else am I to learn? To know?” and here I was being punished for simply trying to learn, so that I could actually know. So, I started to develop a serious resistance to authority because for me as a young girl, the trust bond had been irrevocably damaged as far as adults were concerned. I soon started asking myself, “Do adults really know anything?”

Being so young, however, it wasn’t always easy for me to consciously understand what these resistance feelings were or where they were coming from when it came to what I was being taught. I later learned, of course, that this inner knowing, that gut feeling, was merely my own intuition guiding me. I have since learned to trust that voice with everything I have.

Core beliefs about ourselves, others and the world are formed and ingrained at a very young age. And if we’re raised to believe that things are this way when they are actually that way, well it becomes simple to see how that might cause confusion and even chaos in our lives later on. If we never come to terms with the fact that many, if not most of our beliefs we carry today, were actually picked up and created as a child, then we will always see the world through a very opinionated filter; a lens that sees the world how we are, rather than how it truly is…

This is how so many of us live our lives, isn’t it? We just go around bouncing our unhealed shadows of one another like reflections in a swimming pool. We may be the type of person who doesn’t come through for themselves, and this will show up in our trouble with trusting others. We may accuse a lover of things we’ve done ourselves in the past. Or it may come from an unhealed past where there was betrayal and therefore now we have a hard time fully letting others in again.

This is exactly why personal relationships can offer so much growth, because when two people are putting their own “stuff” onto others, we tend to create situations that require us to really step up and show up (if we’d like to maintain the particular relationship, anyway). And while this can appear in our experiences as heart-break, a loss of trust, communication and self-esteem issues, what it really comes down to is that all of the “drama” is a result of our very own believing the illusion that anything out there is separate from ourselves. The one truth mystics and sages have spoken of for years is that we truly are ALL ONE. Now, this isn’t to say the meaning of this hasn’t ever been twisted and torn and bent to suit personal agendas.

With that being said, this week I wanted to write about the ongoing “truth movement” that has swept the globe in recent years, as well as offer some insight into how we can better tune into our own inner voice of intuition when it comes to knowing for yourself what may be inaccurate or disinformation.

Believe it or not, the spiritual community is heavily weighed with so-called gurus who lead from ego rather than heart, and whom tend to have mastered the art of taking money from people with low self-esteem.

While this isn’t the norm of course, there are many whom are profiting off people’s weaknesses and rather than helping people actually learn, grow and expand, they are monetizing these weakness to keep people living small. In other words, they place themselves above others and look to be seen in a position of “higher” knowing. But perhaps one of the greatest things I’ve ever learned personally is that we always have more to learn, and that once you think you’re “done” learning, you’ve dropped out of your heart and into your ego.

I’m not claiming to have any inside scoop or that my opinion matters more than anyone else’s. My goal in writing about this topic is to bring awareness to this often “hidden alley” of the spiritual community that many of us of us are not even aware of. You see, when I first discovered this online world of like-minded individuals I soaked it ALL up like a sponge. I was so ecstatic to find others just like me who saw the world a little differently than most.

I remember attending as many events and workshops that I could. And trust me when I say that 98% were absolutely amazing! But it’s that 2% I’d like to focus on for a moment and share the time I had a healer tell me I needed her and couldn’t ever heal myself. This was as when I realized that perhaps not everyone in this community is actually at the level of consciousness they claim to be.

It felt like my childhood realization regarding adults all over again…

But if anything, knowing this has allowed me to open my eyes to my own personal power. If it were not for the few “bad apples”, I don’t think I’d ever retaliate with a newfound sense of confidence to pursue my goals and dreams. I’d still be keeping myself living small and believing the lie that I couldn’t do it or that I’m not good enough.

So, today I thank those people (adults and false-gurus alike) for teaching me how to show up for myself and that I can trust my inner voice. It’s quite easy to become a self-help addict in that we keep ourselves in a perpetual state of “I’m getting there”, and never allowing ourselves to come through and cross that finish line. But the more we learn to discern and listen to that inner voice of intuition, we can more easily detect when someone else is also being wholly untruthful or maybe only telling you half. Either way, knowledge is power and when used with loving intentions, your very own personal power can literally move mountains.

Have a whole, honest, and powerful weekend everyone! <3

There is No Reality, Only Perception (& Deception)

If this year has taught me anything, it’s that if someone is not on the same wavelength as you (and I mean that quite literally), then they might have your words float through their ears, but they will never, no matter how hard that you try, be able to hear you, nonetheless understand you. You are on a completely different frequency and therefore cannot effectively communicate.

I’ve come across people who seem to exist in an alternate world; a dimension I can acknowledge overlaps with my own, but one I can never truly connect to from where I stand. I’ve also met people who share in the awe I have over how insane the world appears to have become. You can literally FEEL the difference when people are “vibing” the same as you are. The energy is undeniable; one attracts and one repels.

Quantum Physics is vastly tying together the creational (and foundational) unity of sound and light. What I’ve learned is that light informs while sound transforms. Light (photons) are information and the more light you can “hold” the larger your capacity for not just knowledge, but the wisdom to know what to do with that knowledge.

Sound (frequencies) are the hidden tools behind the manipulation of matter at an atomic level. We now know that nothing is truly “solid” because particles, no matter how closely packed together, are still separated; there is still “space” between them. In fact, most objects we would consider to be “whole” are almost entirely, 99.999999 percent empty space.

If that’s true, then it also means there is no separation. Not really…not on an atomic level at least. And yet here we are, the more conscious, the more aware, the more intelligent form of mass colonies of cells and atoms within us, and yet we somehow have convinced ourselves that we are all disconnected.

The way I see it is, we wouldn’t ask someone which they like more, their legs or arms would we? It just seems like such an asinine consideration seeing how both are vital parts of our anatomy and each contributes incredibly to allowing us to function and live our daily lives.

But when we consider the whole person, we somehow begin to justify our own discriminations as to what people are more important or deserve more attention or credit, etc. We are ALL part of this often chaotic, often confusing creation on planet Earth and the only things that literally divide us are our beliefs.

Beliefs hold the energy signature that you broadcast to the world. And like a radio station, those who are “on your level” will tune in, so to speak, and hear your personal message loud and clear. They may even act to amplify it seeing how they have a similar message to your own. This is called Resonance, and it literally serves to be the unseen, unheard, glue that keeps one reality intact, while another flourishes on its own frequency whether higher or lower.

Our beliefs come from our thoughts, which we also now know are their own energy, and Epigenetics proves that cells actually react to your thoughts. If you are constantly thinking fearful thoughts where you feel anxious or stressed, your cells will respond accordingly and presume that your choice is valid and there is something genuine to stress about, whether that’s actually true or not. 

The election reminds me of this divide in frequencies amongst the people in this country. Some live in a reality where they truly believe they are fighting the good fight by putting faith in the media. That is because the majority seems to share the same beliefs that they must be true; and on some level they are…to them. But to those of us on a different frequency, it honestly feels like insanity and is the farthest thing from the truth.

I’ll leave it at that. What’s to come will shock many. Some to the point of disbelief at the level of corruption, fraud, and lies that the American people have been subjected to. Some will fight to keep their illusion alive and that, unfortunately, is inevitably going to cause a polar reaction from those who saw behind the curtain before anyone was ever told there was a Wizard to see in the first place.

For now, I stay in my lane and therefore in my sacred space of calm, trust, and peace amidst the unbelievable energy of deception that surrounds us this year. And I’ve realized, with the birth of my only child at age 41, the year the world went to shit was the best year of my life. And that only goes to show that there really is no true “reality”, only perception. And mine is that anything is possible. 

We can thrive with thoughts of abundance, or fight to survive with thoughts of lack. Just make sure whatever you decide to fight for is built around someone else’s beliefs. If you never question what you’ve been taught and told, then that is a conscious choice to stay contained within another’s reality, rather than embracing your power and responsibility to create your own.

This year will teach us who wants to be free and who wants to be ruled. Who wants to rule their fate and who wants to hand over their power to a false idol. Who is awake and who is asleep. And last but not least, who pretends to sleep while being passively aware, and who acts awake only to prevent rest and rejuvenation of the collective mind.

So…who are you? And who will you choose to become? Either way, make sure it was your choice. If we learn anything from CNN and Fox News, it’s that just because a talking head reports something as fact, it’s up to you to accept that as your reality or not. Choose wisely.

Guilt-Free Joy and How to Get Some

Something dawned on me the other day when I was thinking about how fast the year had gone by. As I was reassessing my goals for my coaching business, my website, etc. super excited to roll out some new ideas…I could hear the usual voice in my head in the background, while a quiet, yet demanding whisper at the moment, steadily increasing to an in-your-face roar of how little I’ve once again accomplished as another year flies by, just waiting to pounce on the tidbit of joy I’d mustered out of some goals I haven’t “fully” yet accomplished…

And then I think…”According to WHO???”. Who am I competing against except who I used to be anyway? Sure, we may compete against one another for sport, for jobs, for the mere satisfaction of the ego…whatever the reason might be, in the end, the only competition that ever really counts is the one we kept up not against, but WITH ourselves. So why be a jerk to yourself about it? Why not instead be the best damn coach you never had? Why not let it be OK where I am right now for once?

When we choose to be brave enough about how we treat ourselves, it allows us a wider perspective on where we are in our lives in relation to any goals we’ve set forth for ourselves, which could ultimately help us get there a lot faster and more effectively.

It also shows us where, if we’ve reached this awareness, a new perspective to come from that perhaps is a little kinder to the spirit and a lot nicer to work with. And it doesn’t come from a place of empty egoic need to fill a space inside with something outside. No, it comes from the heart and a need to grow and expand; to create and express.

As when we relax into life, this is what we naturally do. And it’s funny how when we start to actually enjoy our lives, some of us think we’re either doing something wrong and this whole shithouse is about to go up in flames any second, or that (basically from the same line of fear energy), that it simply will not last and therefore we MUST self-sabotage it and push it away immediately, because at least then we know we had control.

I think if we were taught a bit differently when it comes to our dreams, our inspirations, our talents and gifts, etc. when we are children and not sold the idea we need to diminish those things that make us happy but not enough money as a career, or that we must sell our very sense of spirit to become someone else’s idea of success. And even if we achieve THAT, we soon find that it’s not fulfilling…there is always more to reach for, more to want.

And that’s just it…as much as we can say that the only constant is change itself, we all continue to fight change constantly! We know the calm release of relaxation and how it feels to let go after a long day. That is because we’ve allowed ourselves to stop pushing against life, to stop trying to fight the current and to float instead.

Once we can master the art of floating with a conscious release, we can keep the awareness of our choices, and also our responsibilities and consequences of those choices. We aren’t just saying, “fuck it all, screw it, I just don’t care anymore!” and give up, we are NOT giving up. What we are doing, however, is letting go.

And it is in this simple (yet never easy) act of letting go, that we allow joy to flow directly to us from the Universe, from Source, from God, from whatever funnel of abundance you resonate most with. We are not restricting the flow by holding so tightly (literally) to needing control over everything in your life.

When you realize that life is not happening to you, but rather responding to you, you stop fighting so hard because there is no fight, just the illusion of battle, a reflection of the constant inner war of “change” or “remain”. Which brings up back to the constant of change…it is not punishing nor rewarding us by bringing us joy then always coming to rip it away, but simply breathing in accordance with all of existence. Ever-cycling, pattern-spiraling to bring back around to us, again and again, the lessons we are yet to learn. And the joy that we are meant to build upon like a foundation of gold within our hearts; the trick is that once we have it, no one can truly ever take it from us; they can only make us believe it is gone…

One cannot hold this truth in their heart without also protecting the peace that comes with it. Because deep within hides the knowing that when we hold too tightly, everything is lost and nothing is gained…but when we connect deeply enough to this truth, everything is gained and nothing is lost.

Omnipresence: The Connections of Quantum Consciousness

We look around us using our physical sense of sight and see objects that appear as solids. We can easily identify where one object ends and another begins. We can even say that when it comes to ourselves, our skin is where “we” end and “out there” begins. But this is completely untrue. And Quantum Physics proves it.

“Space is just a construct that gives the illusion that there are separate objects” – Dr. Quantum

What we perceive to be solid objects are in fact at an atomic level, not so solid at all. In fact, atoms are 99.999999999999% empty space! This can be a mind-numbing idea if one is to say, punch a brick wall or even simply go sit on a chair as we can feel the wall we punch and the chair we sit on. But the truth is, your fist never actually hits the wall and your bum never actually hits the chair. What you are feeling is merely pressure…forces interacting at an atomic level and your nerve endings are simply reacting. How so? Because everything that appears solid is again full of atoms. These atoms are surrounded by shells of electrons that cause them to push away from one another.

One could ask why the entire Universe doesn’t just blow up and away from itself then, right? That’s because most electron shells are not full and as atoms come in close contact with one another, electrons actually go back and forth between atoms, and quite quickly may I add, filling each atoms empty spaces (atoms are excellent sharers!).

So, what does this have to do with you? And how does this prove that you…are omnipresent? Well, the activity of our little electron friends is what most of us know as “energy” and it comprises of what we, and everything else in the entire Universe, are made of at an atomic level. This constant exchange between those busy little electrons is within us all and can even be measured well outside the barrier of our skin. In fact, the human energy field expands out about 3-6 feet outside of the physical body!

And because this energy is free-flowing from atom to atom, this field allows us to “pick up on” other people’s energy; i.e. “feel out” a person. It even explains that sense in your gut when you first meet a person that either attracts or repels you to or away from them. It also sheds light on the term “personal space” as it can feel quite invasive when someone brings their energy into your own energy space without your permission. You literally feel them pushing their energy onto you. Or in other words, you feel the electrons in their energy field impressing on your own.

“If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency, and vibration.” – Nikola Tesla

Everything in the Universe is energy. That wall you punched and your now bruised fist…are energy. But what is fascinating is they never even touched one another. The atoms in the wall were simply vibrating at a different speed/level than that of your fist, so when you directed your fist to the wall, they repelled and an electric, not material (as we are learning “matter” is illusory) reaction and repulsion occurred. The same occurs when you believe you are sitting on a chair. You are actually levitating on an atomic level! 🙂

So, we can now conclude from that fact that everything is energy (and since we are part of that everything) and energy is everywhere…that WE must also be everywhere and with that a part of ONE unified whole. Ponder that for a moment, and then think of how petty personal differences seem when you realize we are all the same on such a grander scale.

Science is now opening doors of consciousness it used to shun. And quantum physics is shining the light on the path to our future understanding of who we really are and just how connected we are to the vast expanse; furthermore…to the understanding that we ARE the vast expanse.

“If quantum mechanics hasn’t profoundly shocked you, you haven’t understood it yet. Everything we call real is made of things that cannot be regarded as real.” – Niels Bohr

Quantum Prayer: The Art of Empowered Receiving

“Ask for what you want, then be prepared to get it.” – Maya Angelou

Most of us are at least familiar with prayer, even if we may not practice it regularly. And perhaps the “traditional” version of prayer consists of asking for that which appears missing in your life, and often comes from a place of lack and disconnection from “God” or “Divine Source Consciousness”. With traditional prayer, you are holding a belief that there exists a place within time and space where this Consciousness does not exist. And yet this is impossible as Source is everywhere, at all times (omnipresent).

You cannot hold two opposing beliefs within your mind and heart as it will create a deep, inner conflict. You may be telling yourself that you know there is only Oneness and that everything is connected, and yet continue to make choices from a place of fear, rather than empowered trust.

Many people pray for material things such as a house, car or vacation while others pray for good health and happiness. And there are some people who pray only for themselves and some people who pray for not only themselves, but all of humanity. There is no “right” or “wrong” way to pray, and you will know what is right for you, by the way it makes you feel.

If you come from a place of lack (not trusting God, the Universe, etc.), then you will ultimately see the world through fearful eyes and these distorted filters alter our perceptions of the Truth.  You may feel as if you are kind and giving, yet you have built an emotional wall to keep people at a certain distance. And if you are always feeling like life is a struggle and just has to be hard, then no matter how “hard” you pray or how often, your prayers will always seem to go unheard and unanswered.

This isn’t about “punishment” other than that which we impose upon ourselves. The Universe doesn’t judge and is not concerned with “good” or “bad”. It speaks in resonance and will simply bring things to or pull things from depending on the emotional feelings and energy developed around the situation. What you believe about it will ultimately determine what the Universe delivers (or does not deliver) onto your doorstep.

This IS about opening yourself up to receiving Divine guidance, while coming from a place of wholeness. You reach out not to fill a gap or hole within yourself, but rather to take a literal dive into the unknown depths of your consciousness. It’s about opening yourself up to allowing greater opportunities to enter your life; which is determined by how much YOU show up! 😉 If you show the Universe you are serious about wanting to live the life of your dreams, by the things you DO, then the Universe will respond by aligning situations that are congruent with expanding your potential and abilities.

Quantum Prayer is simply the act of empowered receiving. While we are intending to connect with the Divine to receive guidance, we do so knowing we are already complete, already whole and already One with the All. We allow, we make welcome, we trust, we surrender to the flow. We do not simply “ask” and then lay in bed wide awake all night stressing out and worrying if it will come, happen, change, etc. That is the opposite of Quantum Prayer. 

When we use Quantum Prayer, we know we have a role to play in keeping the creative energy flowing in our lives. We must be willing to show up for ourselves as much as we expect our prayers to be answered. When we show ourselves that we can actually count on ourselves, we form a trust that becomes unbreakable. When you trust yourself, your self-confidence soars and you are more easily able to embody and fully live the truth of who you really are. And this is the key to being the catalyst for the Universe to open up some serious doors for you. As I previously mentioned and I cannot drive this home enough; when you show the Universe you are finally serious about living a kick-ass life, it will deliver to you that which you need to kick ass!

Creationships: The Art of Creating Truly Relatable Relationships

Being Loved Unconditionally * FREE... - Personal Empowerment | FacebookWhen we think of the word “relationship” most people know what you’re talking about and presumably even have a few of their own. Being born a human on planet Earth, you kind of have no choice and end up with all sorts of relationships in the form of “family” well even before we’re born.

Even the word itself implies an entangled web of sorts; implying that two or more things are in fact “relating” or interacting on some level. But we all know that there are no relationships on the entire planet that are that simple, mundane, or boring, now don’t we? 🙂

So, what’s the point of relationships? Are they really all only a, “you scratch my back and I’ll scratch yours” deal? Well, yes…sometimes that’s exactly the sole purpose of a relationship. But all of them? Definitely not.

You see, sometimes we find ourselves in a relationship we never wanted, were never looking for, never saw coming, and may not even realize we are in until a specific moment touches our hearts in such a way that the only measurable way to describe it is that time and space collide and force you to stop and embrace the beauty of truth, love, and the coming together of souls by a simple “allowing”.

This doesn’t even have to be a romantic relationship. It could be as genuine as that little old lady you always overlooked at the bus stop each morning until one day you saw her fall and helped her up which lead you to a conversation that ended up actually having a deep effect on you. Perhaps it turns out she was a nurse in the same war that took your beloved Grandpa and this alone has formed a heart connection; a relationship.

Sometimes love shows up in our lives in the most unusual places and always the second we stop struggling so hard to find it. And sometimes we aren’t even aware we needed any in the first place until it lands deep within our hearts via delivery on the words of an old woman at a bus stop.

The more we open ourselves to knowing that love truly is everywhere and in everyone, no matter how hard they try to hide it behind emotions, insecurities, etc. the more we will begin to see love show up in our lives and thus gain access to play a more involved role in how your life actually plays out! Yes, this is a key part of empowerment and manifestation as it helps you maintain that higher vibration you need to stay in abundant living.

Furthermore, when we are able to maintain this awareness and insight into love and relationships, it allows us to turn them into what I like to call “creationships” in that you can now feel more empowered in any relationship you have in that you have a greater understanding of the other person involved and can adjust your perception and beliefs accordingly.

Oftentimes, relationships are so reactionary and two people simply act as mirrors for one another; bouncing back and forth their own hidden fears and doubts that have not been brought to the surface yet. This is an excellent, yet guaranteed to be an emotional way to learn and grow in life and the path most of us choose.

But some of us eventually realize that we don’t have to keep learning in this manner and we can go within instead of projecting onto others and reflecting back to them. This is a manner of learning in higher consciousness and will inevitably turn your relationships into creationships because you will have the power to work productively when issues arise rather than simply reacting emotionally as you may have in the past. Personal Empowerment, What it is and how to attain it.

Knowledge is power, but in this case, wisdom is the application and when we apply the principle of patient acceptance and understanding when in relationships with other people, we will be answered with the same patient acceptance that will manifest in life as the happiness we are, the peace we feel within, and the light we ignite in those we relate to every single day.

The “As-If” Approach to Authentic Manifesting

Podcast #98: Law of Attraction: Is Fear of Criticism Messing with Your Manifesting? - Life Made to OrderAnyone in the Spiritual Community has most likely heard the term, “ascension” a time or two. It is apparently the universal (no pun intended) term for the overall process that humanity is undergoing via this massive wave or shift in consciousness. But what never felt quite right to me with this was the feeling that I think so many of us can relate to; not feeling good enough right now, right here.

And ascension literally encourages a climb, a rise. And while it reflects the raising of one’s frequency that occurs naturally the more wisdom that one acquires and thus also amplitude one can hold when you are attempting to already reach for a goal, it seems to only add to the pressure, and I honestly think that subconsciously holds so many of us back before we even get started.

I like to think of personal growth as more of a linear progression. A space that already exists that you simply step into. This is quite similar to how I approach manifesting in that I use the visualization techniques of living “as-if” you already have that which you desire. In this case, it’s the same thing, but rather instead of this being a calling on the Universe, this is could be considered an answer to a calling from the Universe.

You can do this in a number of ways such as paying attention to all of those synchronicities appearing in your life as symbols and omens and little signs pointing the way to some pretty awesome stuff trying to make it’s way to you.

So often we curse the Universe, Source, God…(whichever label is most comfortable for you) for not delivering our wishes, answering our prayers…etc. but if we really step back and think about it, we are always given exactly what we BELEIVE. We can put out that we want this or that, but if we have a limited belief on what this or that looks like or are very limited on how we will allow it to come to us, then we are literally closing off ways for the Universe to deliver it to us. 👄How to Discover your Authentic Voice... - Manifestation Magic

It would be like placing an order and then calling UPS and being like, “Yeah I know I ordered it, but I’ll only accept it from a man named Brad and he’s gotta bring it on a Tuesday at 3:47 pm wrapped in an orange bow or else forget it.” It makes it nearly impossible to meet your demands. So, manifesting can ONLY work when we put it out there, let it go lovingly and excitedly, and trust it will come back on the best way, at the best time, and in the best form for our highest good.

So, rather than having all of the lag, pressure, and oh-so-lovely self-loathing, guilt, etc. that often accompanies those times you either don’t meet your milestones, catch yourself procrastinating, encounter anxiety or depression, or manifest another pain/illness that distracts you from your purpose path, etc. we can get out of feeling like it’s always an uphill climb and so much work and begin to just realize that there’s nothing to do per se, but there’s simply so much to remember and realize.

And this is stepping into what I call your authentic integrity. Two more hot words in this community that have very key meanings and when coined together, I feel that it bring a new facet to what it means to be true to yourself. When most of us think of integrity, we usually consider what it is that people do for others that would determine them virtuous or not. But this also includes that which we do for ourselves because one of the most precious lessons I’ve ever learned is that if you never learn to show up for yourself, love yourself, and take care of yourself, you simply cannot be fully present in that way for anyone else.

Quantum Observations: Keeping Schrodinger’s Cat Alive (VIDEO)

Most of us might not be able to write out Schrodinger’s equation, but many of us have at least heard of Schrodinger’s Cat. With the familiarity of this unfortunate feline, one must also be aware of the fact that anything truly IS possible; just as Quantum Mechanics shows us by demonstrating this cat can exist in multiple states simultaneously.. i.e. dead or alive.

If you are not familiar with Schrodinger’s Cat, it’s a thought experiment (that was thankfully just that and was never actually carried out), in which a cat is placed inside a box with a piece of radioactive material that may or may not decay and kill the cat within the hour. Now, after the hour passes we want to know the state of the cat. Common sense tells us there’s a 50/50 chance that the cat is either dead or alive, but in Quantum Mechanics, until we open the box and collapse the wave function by observing the cat, the cat exists in BOTH states simultaneously!

And down the rabbit hole, we go…

This may sound like some whacky fairytale, but as the following video points out, Schrodinger’s Cat is quite real, and the “superposition state” (simultaneous existence) is what allows the computers we use every day to exist!

Video Source: TED-Ed

The Schrodinger’s Cat thought experiment is an excellent reminder of how “energy flows where attention goes” and that if things go unlooked at in your life, they may remain in a constant state of flux or always feel unfinished and incomplete.

But just as atoms can exist as a wave and a particle at the same time, know that while you are part of this dualistic realm, you are not ruled by it and can collapse the wave by making a choice and choosing to look at things in your life. When we observe the areas we most avoid, we clear the weeds and allow room for fresh vegetation to bloom. We create space and expansion for new possibilities and growth.

Perhaps the greatest lesson that fabled feline born in the mind of a brilliant Austrian physicist can teach us is this…to remember that there IS no box, to begin with.

Our Personal Paradigm: An Exploration of Biocentrism [VIDEO]: Robert Lanza

Nature conscious approach - презентация онлайнBiocentrism is a theory that states that we are absolutely creating the world around us and furthermore, that the world around us is just a construct all in our mind. It severely challenges science’s current status quo which supports that of the Big Bang which burst forth everything we know and everything we are into existence. Sounds simple enough, but is there more to it than that? I absolutely feel that there is and I also believe that although both sides try, neither science nor religion can fully answer the question regarding the origin of life.

On a fundamental level, the Big Bang Theory doesn’t really explain much, does it? While science will take it further and get into entropy and syntropy, expanse and contraction, matter, and the formation and gases, planets, stars, etc., religion will simply say that “God did it”. And regardless of it all, neither of them gets into the deep nature of our reality in regards to how the beginning of creation is the connection to Consciousness.

Video Source: scienceandnonduality

In this video Robert Lanza, a scientist in the fields of regenerative medicine and biology, explains the theory of Biocentrism and compares it to current theories on reality. He really gets into the nature of existence in regards to the Mind, the Observer, and physical reality in our external world. He speaks on how nothing can be perceived that isn’t already interacting with our consciousness, so it must exist somewhere.

Biocentrism News - Robert Lanza's Theory of the Universe

 

I find that so interesting as Biocentrism walks a close parallel line to Quantum Theory, and yet they are worlds apart from one another (pun intended) when it comes to where they stand in regards to things existing independently. In Quantum Theory, things only exist when they are being observed, while in Biocentrism; things exist independently and yet remain infinitely connected in the web of Consciousness.

Would you say I’m crazy if I said I think it’s possible that both could be right some of the time? Lol, I’ll call my new theory, “Awesome Chaos”. Has a nice ring to it, no? 🙂

Cultural Conditioning: What Lies Beneath “The Greater Good”

Voltaire quote on intelligence and non conforming to cultural ...When we ask ourselves if we are honest people, most of us would like to think that we are and answer (kinda) wholeheartedly “yes”. And the reason for that would most likely be because we consider honesty a virtue and for that, we’d be right. But I really wanted to write on this topic for a while, because I think that many times honesty gets under-rated, over-rated and frankly just downright misunderstood. Especially in this day and age when speaking the truth over the preferred narrative is often met with harsh disregard.

If you’re anything like me, you would take a cold, hard slap of the truth any day of the week over a warm, soft lie. And by that I mean, you aren’t the type of person that can’t handle the emotional maturity it takes to deal with the “heavy shit” life can throw at you sometimes. And this isn’t to judge anyone because trust me, there have been plenty of times when I was the one who thought they couldn’t handle shit and literally thought the Universe had a vendetta against me. Somehow, we all get through.

But what I’m getting at here is, I personally cherish the respect it shows a person has for you when they can trust you enough with dealing with reality as it is. They aren’t taking it upon themselves to give you an altered, watered-down version of it just to protect your feelings. Now, if you outwardly are the type that would rather be on a “need know” basis, then that’s different.

Most people, however I believe would rather be informed and treated as if they have the conscious awareness and mental capacity to make sound choices with the truth of the situation at hand. And yes, I am definitely one of those people.

So, that is one type of way we might “justify the lie”; in that we act to protect those we love from knowing the truth of a possible horrible situation. Again, this does not refer to meaningless details that would just act to hurt, scar, etc for no positive and/or beneficial reason at all and especially not if it only serves a purpose to cause pain. I speak solely of information that deters anyone from making a fully educated choice about the current situation or relationship they are in at the time. Any truth that if brought to light might cause the person in the dark to change the status per se.

Another example is when we lie to ourselves. We may have made promises to a loved one or to ourselves that we’d improve on some behavior that’s been affecting our lives in a negative way, but perhaps deep down there’s that voice you know so well already signing the papers of failure? How do we turn the dial so instead of listening to that degrading station, we tune into something a bit more encouraging? Something that perhaps motivates us into our own truth, rather than staying stuck in the lies of our past conditioning.

This is always the choice isn’t is? How many layers of the onion are we willing to peel away? Each one gets scarier and scarier and more real. Things get harder to hide and our true selves become clearer as we allow our unraveling to bring flood after flood of tears as we kick and scream not to grow; not to be…honest. We may have sadly convinced ourselves that the lie itself is “for the greater good.”

But eventually, later on, down the path life calls to you and all you hear is your Truth. You can tune everything else out. And you realize that the lie you kept telling over and over was only a fight to avoid one thing and one thing only. And that is the giving TO yourself the LOVE you did not receive & continue to seek in others. When you do this, your eyes will sort of glaze over with a new filter. You literally are blessed with new eyes…three of them, in fact..and those that SEE will understand that. 🙂 Those that quite do not, please look up the “Pineal Gland” as I’ve come to find that going inward (meditation) with the resonance of Self-Love (Acceptance, Peace, I AM…) is a very effective way to assist in cracking wide open this third eye of yours.

We also lie to just to keep things interesting, don’t we? We all know the rush of beginnings and how awesome “new” things are because they (over) stimulate the senses with that new car smell and we sort of getting to relive our story over again if we are meeting a new love interest or friend. If we suffer from low self-esteem, keeping this rush going requires dishonesty, not only to those you love but also to yourself. We may find ourselves hopping from relationship to relationship because we fear people ever seeing the real us, or furthermore because we haven’t even seen the real us ourselves yet and perhaps are a little terrified at what that might look like. 28 Quotes That Will Level Up Your Intercultural Communication ...

Eventually, like air, underwater all truths rise to the surface and when you can unearth your own crap and turn it into fertilizer, it’s actually one of the greatest catalysts for growth. As we refer back to ourselves as the trusty onion, full of layers of emotion and conditioning, let us also be reminded of the light that is within every single particle. Because in the end, it is not the lies we remember, but the truth of the moments full of love, forgiveness, appreciation, acceptance, and grace. Now those are matters that matter.

Good Vibrations – A Journey Through Transpersonal Density

Image result for law of oneIf you’re reading this right now, then chances are good that you’ve heard of The Law of One, otherwise known as The Ra Material, channeled by Carla L. Rueckert between 1982 and 1998.

But if you haven’t (and I’ve only dabbled myself), it is a collection of books which according to Wikipedia were ”…purportedly authored by a non-human entity named Ra…who is described as an entity composed of an entire civilization of extraterrestrial beings that are fused into one unified consciousness.”

As with most topics of this genre, I’ve heard many different opinions on the Ra Material ranging from it’s not to be trusted, to those who swear by the information it provides about who we are as human beings, why we are here on Earth, etc. And again with most topics of this genre, I find my happy ass square in the middle; cautious, yet absolutely resonating with and flabbergasted by a lot of what I’ve read and seen so far.

I first heard of channeling via the book, Bringers of the Dawn by Barbara Marciniak, although my interest in ETs and UFOs goes as far back as I can remember. When it comes to channeling information from other worlds, dimensions, densities, etc.,…while it’s a topic I’ve studied since I was a teenager, it’s one I tend to approach with my eyes wide open. But that doesn’t mean I’m closed and constricted as I try to keep a very open mind. And what I’ve come to learn is that any authentic source or information does not provide you with specific dates for major events because timelines and thus the future can always be altered.

Also, the simplest way to know if the information you are being fed is the truth is how it makes you FEEL. So from channeled information, I always take what resonates and what works for me and leave what doesn’t. And I think that is perhaps my favorite part of what I’ve experienced thus far of the Ra Material is that it assumes the same position. Let’s just say you won’t have them knocking on your door trying to share their word anytime soon. And they don’t have to force it onto others, because it appears as if it only reaches those meant to know of it.

So, if you haven’t heard of it up until now, then there’s a reason it’s making an appearance in your life and while I’m not a superstitious person, I never reject signs, symbols, patterns or synchronicities as these are the guideposts the Universe uses for your consciousness. And if you’re paying attention, it sometimes becomes as easy, seamless and natural as breathing to let the Universe lead the way…

Up until today, I hadn’t noticed that I had been stuck on someone else’s opinion I had heard like 3 years ago about these books and it’s not like me to not follow-up on things and check them out for myself. So, when they fell into my Facebook feed today, I spent a good portion of the morning, diving in and watching a video interview with the channel, Charla.

I gotta say I am glad I did because the way she explains dimensions/densities just resonated like nothing else for me…

1D = The Elements

2D = Anything basically that can reach for the light such as animals and plants

3D = That’s us, anything with a Soul

4D = Love

5D = Wisdom

6D = Unity (the union of love and wisdom), where RA is purportedly channeled from

7D = Density of Forgetting (returning to Source starts)

8D = What I understood to be a density of “in-between” right before full integration back into Source, but if someone can explain this better let me know

9D = Source Consciousness

I will leave with another useful insight into why it’s also good to be cautious when dealing with channeled information or when channeling yourself. Always come from the heart because as soon as ego comes into play, and you begin to “demand” answers, your connection will drop down to a lower vibrational entity, who can easily pick up and say it is the same entity who dropped your call, and go onto to give you the information your asking for. It might feed your ego, make you feel good and allow you to provide dates, but this is the type of thing you need to watch out for, both as a receiver of info from channel and channelers themselves.

So always set your intention on whom you wish to communicate and that it be done with love and for your highest good. That way, you know what you are working with. And always remember that a true, loving connection will not always give you all the information and answers you seek, but as long as your heart is open, you will feel what the right questions are and they will keep providing you with information. As long as there is a reciprocity of respect, it works. Bring in the ego, and the connection gets bad. Keep the lines open…as well as your hearts. <3

Have a great weekend everyone!

See It, Then Be It: The Power of Mindful Visualization

Can You Use Visualization To Help You Get Women?Being 34 weeks pregnant, I’ve been reading as many books as I can on how to stay calm and focused during natural childbirth (which is the plan). What I keep seeing as a common topic amongst every book I pick up is how powerful using visualization techniques can be to literally write the script of your experience.

In other words, we can empower ourselves to trust that our bodies know exactly what to do. And when needed, we can connect and communicate with our baby to focus on cooperative energy as you both work as a team to bring forth life into the world.

“Back in the day” women viewed childbirth in a completely different way from how we currently do in modern times. It was not common to fear the process nor to focus on the pain or the avoidance of said pain. Instead, women were taught what it genuinely is…a natural biological process that our bodies were designed to perform and that there is nothing to fear when you surrender to the process itself.

The understanding of how the energy and emotions brought to the experience can tip the scale one way or another will make all the difference in how painful or joyous the experience will be. And this is where using visualizations can be the perfect tool to guide you through your delivery.

Well-known amongst athletes, martial artists, and those who meditate regularly, visualizations are a valuable tool used to perfect their craft. The simple act of taking your own thoughts through how you want the experience to play out (on a regular basis) literally rewires the brain to be better prepared and to not react in fear when you finally do go through the real experience.

It’s a way to desensitize your brain’s reaction to the experience itself. When the body is fearful, it creates adrenaline and cortisol which increase stress as well as pain. It’s almost like the brain fighting the natural process. As with all spiritual practice, we must remind the mind and the ego that they are not the boss. We, as pure consciousness, run the show, and perhaps we needed to be reminded of that as well.

The technique I’m using for myself is custom-made and honestly, that’s how it should be for us all. We all know what we want and we all have the right to put energy into manifesting exactly that. The closer I get to my delivery date, the more I realize that I can either surrender to the what-if’s and fear the unknown, or realize that I have much more say in how my delivery turns out.

I picture myself in the birthing pool, breathing calmly, and focusing on the mandalas that I created and blessed with personal sigils. There are 3 of them and each is attuned to specific energy I channeled into their intricate designs and vivid colors. The first is PEACE/BREATH, the second is POWER/FOCUS, and the third is PUSH/STRENGTH for each stage of labor and delivery.

My vision is pulling from all of the senses and I can smell the lavender oils in the background while the soothing sounds of Bob Marley take me away while bringing me present to the moment. More connected, more aware, and more prepared to ride the waves of my coming labor.

I’ve only been using this visualization for about 2 weeks now, but I can already feel a shift my uncertainty and need to control everything. I am more at peace with the fact that I may end up having to deliver at the hospital and only getting to labor in the tub rather than give birth. But I am equally balanced in focusing on and drawing my reality the vision I have for my perfect day. Which of course, leaves room for imperfections and provides openness to unexpected change. Norman Vincent Peale Quote: “Affirm it, visualize it, believe it ...

Again, this technique can be used for several purposes, from learning to slow a chattering mind that won’t let you sleep, to becoming a better shot at basketball. When we can proactively take ourselves through the experience, we give our brains the preview of what to expect. Our brains do not know the difference in the reality of our thoughts and as long as we believe something to be true, the brain will as well.

This is such an empowering lesson, at least it was for me. It reminds us that we are not slaves to our emotions, but rather we can learn to work with them and not allow them to force our bodies into a panic when consciously we want peace. When we can remove the fear and act on courage and trust, we give ourselves an almost as great of a gift as motherhood. And that is the ability to connect with this life-changing experience in a way that is all our own…lead by love and grace.

How To Embrace The (Unexpected) Changes in Your Life

Accepting Change – Still I RiseThe Only Constant…

Perhaps you’ve heard the phrase, “the only constant is change”. But if not, it would serve us all well to take a moment to grasp the truth of this simple, yet powerful statement. Change really IS the only thing we can count on time after time, as nothing is permanent.

Sometimes when unexpected change comes up in our lives, it can feel like the rug was pulled out from under us because let’s face it; we all get comfortable in our daily routines. If we go into work one day to be told that our hours have been cut or on the flip-side that we must work long overtime hours, this unexpected change may cause us stress or anxiety.

But the worst thing we can do to ourselves is to worry. To worry about the situation is to literally create stories in your mind of the worst possible outcomes and to put all of your focus on THAT! Most of us know by now that everything is energy, right? Well, how do you think the energy is leaning when we worry about the unexpected things that happen to us in our lives? I’d have to say slightly more to the negative side and I’d think most of you would agree.

When creating the lives we want for ourselves, we need to keep envisioning in our hearts and our minds what we DO want, not putting the focus on that which we do NOT want. Again, it’s all about energy, and where our attention goes is where things will grow in our lives. Where we put the most attention is where we will see our manifestations literally come to life!

Different Types of Change

There are of course different types of change; that which we can control and that which we cannot. Now, the “no worrying!” suggestion still applies here, but for that which we CAN control in our lives, it helps if we learn how to best manage if not even invoke change in our own lives. This is to say we hold the reigns and direct the way our lives go, and we are okay with taking responsibility when things within our control go “wrong”. This is how we learn and grow and is part of the process we call “life”. If we don’t make mistakes, we are not living our lives fully enough!

For that which we cannot change, it is best to surrender and to trust. To quote the amazing Bruce Lee, “Be water, my friend”. When things outside of our control happen, and we trust that there is more to it, we will be gifted with the knowledge that it is for our greatest good and that we will come out of it stronger, wiser and with a better vision of where your life is headed and why this particular change happened in the first place.

Embracing Change

And this is how we begin to embrace all change in our lives; both that which we do have control over and that which we do not. Both have their lessons and their opportunities for growth and life experience in their own unique ways.

When we can always keep the bigger picture in mind, that this is all for the expansion of our consciousness; for our soul’s growth, it allows us to keep a lighter attitude about life in general and we don’t tend to view the world from a place of fear as often. Because we are coming from a place of trust, we can resonate with love and feel confident in the choices we are able to make and feel confident in trusting that all will work itself out as it should for that which we cannot control. Accepting Change In Your Business | angel art | angels art | angel ...

And when we begin to see how we really are creating our own lives, we become even more cosmically intertwined with the creative process of the divine Universe. As we act as co-creators, we literally leave our marks on the fabric of space-time!

I cannot think of anything more freeing and more empowering at the same time. This alone will act to open your heart and when your self-confidence begins to grow and you begin to see what magic you are capable of, there’s no telling what you can do! 🙂

Naughty By Nature? A Closer Look at the Human Condition

The human condition is imperfection. And that's how it's ...Nature’s basic rule is everything in balance to maintain harmony. Our bodies and minds are no different and the thoughts we think act energetically just like the food we choose to put into our bodies. Our thoughts can be nourishing and fulfilling or they can be detrimental to our mental health; which in turn eventually affects the health of our physical body as well. Everything is connected.

I’ve heard we humans have 12,000 to 60,000 thoughts per day! That is quite a lot of opportunities we have to pave the way for how each of our days plays out, regardless of what “happens” to us. There will always be things outside of our control and to best maintain what I’d best describe as a state of neutral being (zero-point), is to first accept that as fact. Second would be to accept those things you cannot control not as things “out to get you”, or stuff that always happens to you (no matter what you do), as these kinds of thoughts and phrases put and keep us in a state of victimhood.

Zero-point is that space in existence where manifestation and creation occur. It is where time does not exist and everything just IS. It’s where the opposing sides of duality meet and conjoin and where the extreme ends of polarity come together in the middle. Some might say zero-point is the silence spoken of in Zen meditation and others might say that enlightenment is merely continual living in zero-point.

I wanted to touch on that a bit more as it gives foundation to how we create our reality through manifestation; whether we are consciously aware of this fact or not. And how close we are living to zero-point can ultimately be used as a reflection of the level of peace and happiness in one’s life. I can say this confidently as the farther we go from our center, the farther we go from our authentic truth, our Divine Self, and we begin to enter the worlds of duality and illusion.

This is where disease and disorder come into play and both can act as reflections of thoughts that do not serve us or miscommunication of the body with the outside world.  By this I mean, if we are continuously telling ourselves that we are not good enough or undeserving of happiness, then we are also communicating this to the cells in our body. Our cells use our perceptions as means of communicating with the world outside; much in the way, they would react by creating a blister after you burn your hand on the stove, or if they react to raise your body temperature if you go outside without a jacket in 30-degree weather.

The 5 senses and organs such as the skin are not the only means for our cells to get outside information. Our thoughts tell them the state of our minds and our minds are a huge part of the creation and manifestation process. The actual process also requires emotions, feelings, and beliefs to be behind the thoughts and takes place in the heart center (in the area of the Anahata or 4th Chakra). And when the thoughts, emotions, feelings, and beliefs come together in the heart center, they are sent out into the Universe as a manifestation in an energetic form of intention. Again, this process occurs in each and every human whether they are consciously aware of it or not. Billy Graham Quote: “Suffering is part of the human condition, and ...

Things that happen that are out of our control can definitely cause stress to the mind and body. The train being late in the morning for example; now this could lead to you starting to have thoughts about how late you’re going to be for work and how mad your boss will get, etc. You could start to get so anxious that you snap at the lady who keeps losing her balance and leaning into you. You could get so heated and lost in your thoughts that you trip and fall off the steps and hurt your ankle. A number of things could happen, but just always remember how like attracts like. That’s the one thing I always go to in a moment I feel like I just might lose it.

That…and I’ve trained myself to not get caught up in other people’s drama. It’s so easy to want to sit and watch a couple argue over something incredibly petty, but why? Why do we feel drawn to that energy? I imagine it’s the same reason Jerry Springer ever lasted on TV so long or why there’s such a thing called rubber-necking when it comes to car accidents. We are FOOLED by our senses; drawn and intrigued by what is OUTSIDE of us and often times losing sight of and forgetting to pay attention to what is going on INSIDE. But the treasure we all seek is within ourselves and that is the greatest discovery any of us will ever make in a single lifetime.

I believe another great discovery would be that we ARE nature and in that, we are to maintain that same balance. And we do with our thoughts and feelings. Emotions are way-showers; they simply let you know that something is definitely there that needs to be looked at and when something no longer annoys you, makes you angry, etc. then, as they say, the lesson is learned.  Emotions are not meant to be clung to and held onto for great lengths of time. To maintain balance, simply flow with them. Sit with and go through your emotions…feel them out, then let them go. This is how we serve them and allow them to serve us in harmony.

When we apply the same principle to our thoughts, we begin to see our lives shift in huge ways. We can now see the difference clearly in situations where we have control and where we do not, and when we do not, we can peacefully surrender the outcome, trusting fully in the Universe. This allows us to stay centered; in zero-point without “losing our cool” (acting from ego), over things we had no chance in affecting the outcome in any way. This is smart self-conservation of energy or as I’d rather describe it, self-love. 🙂

When we apply this filter, we reserve our energy for battles we know are worth fighting. I don’t even like using that word necessarily because there’s nothing to fight when you flow. Yes, you still incur obstacles in life like everyone else, but you retain a sense of trust, not only in the Universe but also yourself that things DO happen for a reason and all it as it is meant to be. This is not a state of surrendering as in giving up, but rather as in giving IN to your innermost knowing.

Not everyone knows that we as humans possess this power over our own thoughts, but I truly believe that more and more of us are waking up to this fact. And as with the theme of this article, the energy spreads, and that can only mean good things from the perspective of expanding consciousness on a global level. As more and more of us start asking the right questions and looking in the right place (within ourselves), as a collective we are starting to change and shift universal imprints over time.

Shakespeare Human Condition Quotes - Segerios.comAnd this is why it is so important to watch your thoughts with care and to check often your own belief systems to ensure they are truly your own at the core-root. We receive so many imprints and core beliefs as children that are from other people such as our parents, teachers, friends, etc. that stay with us well into adulthood. Some of these beliefs are often the cause of recurring issues in our lives and we never see the connections until we go back and look over certain events in our childhoods to see when and why these beliefs were formed.

Then and only then, can we realize that we are not damaged, we are not broken, that nothing is wrong with us. We can finally know that just like everyone else, we have shadows that just need a little light. And once we take the time to heal and integrate our shadows (with loving acceptance, not as something we need to get rid of), we are free of the weight of carrying around the energy of other people’s belief systems.

That is a good example of energy we can control and shift in our lives, even if we may not know it at the time. And it’s definitely not an easy feat by any means to heal or even discover your own shadows. But once you do, and you start to love yourself in the way that you deserve, you will begin to see a world that loves you back twice as much.

Bend Don’t Break: Revelations of Our Reality & Reflections

T. Harv Eker Quote: “Your outer world is a reflection of your ...I am always flabbergasted by how easily we end up in the same place. And by that I mean, we can literally watch the days go by, our lives changing, our creations and manifestations coming to life, but at the same time, there’s a point you never quite notice that you somehow lose a bit of gratitude for it all. Things that once excited you may now be dull or boring. We may feel “stuck in a rut” or simply so embedded within a routine that we fail to notice we have somehow tuned out and turned on auto-pilot.

And then, when you least expect it, life will always remind you why you always have something to be grateful for in each and every moment, and the second you stop noticing, that is the moment you turn away from who you really are. It’s almost as if you looked into a puddle and choose to live in the reflection rather than look away and come back to reality…Stuck in a sense of comfort with the reflection, waiting to see what it does next. We become temporarily unaware that we ARE the reflection and thus control the exact thing we see and are locked in a gaze with.

When things are going well for us, life can seem easy. We have great things to say, we feel good, our confidence might be high, etc. and while all of these things are of course affected heavily by many different variables as we are all different in habit and choices we make, overall when something “shitty” happens to any of us in the midst of all this goodness, it can honestly feel as if your entire world is crumbling down. And ultimately it becomes the foundation of our focus.

So, why IS it that life can’t be all smiles and rainbows? Believe it or not, this is actually a good thing. As I mentioned, it brings us back from the rippled reflection that can often desensitize us the little things and the immense significance they actually have in creating a real presence in our lives. When we forget to intentionally manifest and instead play a passive role in our lives, life tends to happen to us. However, when we are creating willfully from a place of love and connectedness, our inner world creates our outer world.

In other words, we knowingly create the reflection, but never lose the conscious awareness that it is none other than ourselves we are seeing reflected in our own creations and manifestations.

The true reflection of yo... | Quotes & Writings by Aakriti Saxena ...

I know for me personally, the Universe always has its way of getting my attention and letting me know a big change is coming. First I feel it in my gut, then it seems as if everyone around me has literally lost their marbles or are different people. I simply cannot relate to them as I was once able to before. There has been a literal shift and I can feel myself moving onto something else.

This is not to say that the world has literally lost its marbles, however, my conscious perception of this awkward shift is what allows me to receive this notice from the Universe. This energy and being sensitive to its arrival while not necessarily knowing WHAT changes are coming is often terrifying, but hey we learn to ride the waves or end up staring at those rippled reflections for the rest of our lives. LOL

I’ve come to trust that whenever a change like this occurs, no matter how big, scary and life-altering it might be, no matter how many questions it might bring up or potential anxiety attacks it could trigger, I do my best to keep my cool through meditation and yoga/pranic breathing practices. But ultimately, at the end of the day what keeps peace in my heart is the trust I have in the Universe and in love itself. As long as I never mentally sever my soul connection to Source, nor let the noise of the world try to tell me who I am…I remain and infinite part of it and can manifest consciously with directive intent.

And one the intention is released to the ethers, we don’t necessarily need to make things happen so much as we do to trust and allow things to happen…

Saying "You are not good ... | Quotes & Writings by Swapna ...

For each and every time a huge, terrifying change has brought an end to one thing in my life, there has always been a much more awesome thing to fill its place showing up not too long afterward. And the stronger my trust and the less my worry, the quicker it seems to arrive.

Now, I’m not saying being naive and sit on your ass and expect that new job, soulmate, good health, etc. to just show up and literally knock on your door (but hey, it could happen!), rather I am saying to know in the deepest core of your heart that you deserve happiness and love in your life and that we are all supported on such levels that are beyond our comprehension sometimes.

And when we can find it within ourselves to simply surrender and let go, we find that we are much stronger than we think and that which we thought would break us, merely bends and shapes us into a better version of who we once were.

The ultimate transformative revelation/reflection of reality… 😉
