INSPIRATION FOR THE DAY ~ Eric Raines: “Nature Is Alive”

There is something a bit overwhelming when you inhale into the field of your body, sparking bioelectric flow engaged with high vibratory laughter and light, then expand it out to the plants, trees and grass around you.

 

Just like you have the ability to move waves of chi (the Spark that animates your body) through your body, the plants can flow energy in the exact same way, sparking awareness of energetic movement inside of nature.

 

The really amazing part happens when you broadcast powerful sensations of energy and love… they echo it back.

 

The more you study this phenomenon, the easier it is to realize there is a “language” of energy being spoken back to you which will eventually evolve into direct communication no different than you reading these words right now.

 

The plant kingdom IS ancient wisdom. They are constantly trying to teach us. This is no metaphor

THICH NHAT HANH: “We Need a Revolution — It Starts with Falling in Love with the Earth”

The Earth is our mother, nourishing and protecting us in every moment — giving us air to breathe, fresh water to drink, food to eat and healing herbs to cure us when we are sick.  Every breath we inhale contains our planet’s nitrogen, oxygen, water vapor and trace elements.  When we breathe with mindfulness, we can experience our interbeing with the Earth’s delicate atmosphere, with all the plants, and even with the sun, whose light makes possible the miracle of photosynthesis.  With every breath, we can experience communion.  With every breath, we can savor the wonders of life.

We need to change our way of thinking and seeing things.  We need to realise that the Earth is not just our environment.  The Earth is not something outside of us.  Breathing with mindfulness and contemplating your body, you realise that you are the Earth.  You realise that your consciousness is also the consciousness of the Earth.  Look around you — what you see is not your environment, it is you.

Great Mother Earth

Whatever nationality or culture we belong to, whatever religion we follow, whether we’re Buddhists, Christians, Muslims, Jews, or atheists, we can all see that the Earth is not inert matter.  She is a great being, who has herself given birth to many other great beings — including Buddhas and bodhisattvas, prophets and saints, sons and daughters of God and humankind.  The Earth is a loving mother, nurturing and protecting all peoples and all species without discrimination.

When you realise the Earth is so much more than simply your environment, you’ll be moved to protect her in the same way as you would yourself.  This is the kind of awareness, the kind of awakening that we need, and the future of the planet depends on whether we’re able to cultivate this insight or not.  The Earth and all species on Earth are in real danger.  Yet if we can develop a deep relationship with the Earth, we’ll have enough love, strength and awakening in order to change our way of life.

Falling in Love

We can all experience a feeling of deep admiration and love when we see the great harmony, elegance and beauty of the Earth.  A simple branch of a cherry blossom, the shell of a snail or the wing of a bat — all bear witness to the Earth’s masterful creativity.  Every advance in our scientific understanding deepens our admiration and love for this wondrous planet.  When we can truly see and understand the Earth, love is born in our hearts. We feel connected.  That is the meaning of love: To be at one.

Only when we’ve truly fallen back in love with the Earth will our actions spring from reverence, and the insight of our interconnectedness.  Yet many of us have become alienated from the Earth.  We are lost, isolated and lonely.  We work too hard, our lives are too busy, and we are restless and distracted, losing ourselves in consumption.  But the Earth is always there for us, offering us everything we need for our nourishment and healing: The miraculous grain of corn, the refreshing stream, the fragrant forest, the majestic snow-capped mountain peak, and the joyful birdsong at dawn.

True Happiness is Made of Love

Many of us think we need more money, more power or more status before we can be happy.  We’re so busy spending our lives chasing after money, power and status that we ignore all the conditions for happiness already available.  At the same time, we lose ourselves in buying and consuming things we don’t need, putting a heavy strain on both our bodies and the planet.  Yet much of what we drink, eat, watch, read or listen to, is toxic and is polluting our bodies and minds with violence, anger, fear and despair.

As well as the carbon dioxide pollution of our physical environment, we can speak of the spiritual pollution of our human environment: The toxic and destructive atmosphere we’re creating with our way of consuming.  We need to consume in such a way that truly sustains our peace and happiness.  Only when we’re sustainable as humans will our civilization become sustainable.  It is possible to be happy in the here and the now.

We don’t need to consume a lot to be happy; in fact, we can live very simply.  With mindfulness, any moment can become a happy moment.  Savoring one simple breath, taking a moment to stop and contemplate the bright blue sky, or to fully enjoy the presence of a loved one, can be more than enough to make us happy.  Each one of us needs to come back to reconnect with ourselves, with our loved ones and with the Earth.  It’s not money, power or consuming that can make us happy, but having love and understanding in our heart.

The Bread in Your Hand is the Body of the Cosmos

We need to consume in such a way that keeps our compassion alive.  And yet many of us consume in a way that is very violent. Forests are cut down to raise cattle for beef, or to grow grain for liquor, while millions in the world are dying of starvation.  Reducing the amount of meat we eat and alcohol we consume by 50% is a true act of love for ourselves, for the Earth and for one another.  Eating with compassion can already help transform the situation our planet is facing, and restore balance to ourselves and the Earth.

Nothing is More Important than Brotherhood and Sisterhood

There’s a revolution that needs to happen and it starts from inside each one of us. We need to wake up and fall in love with Earth.  We’ve been homo sapiens for a long time. Now it’s time to become homo conscious.  Our love and admiration for the Earth has the power to unite us and remove all boundaries, separation and discrimination.  Centuries of individualism and competition have brought about tremendous destruction and alienation.  We need to re-establish true communication — true communion — with ourselves, with the Earth, and with one another, as children of the same mother.  We need more than new technology to protect the planet.  We need real community and co-operation.

All civilisations are impermanent and must come to an end one day.  But if we continue on our current course, there’s no doubt that our civilisation will be destroyed sooner than we think.  The Earth may need millions of years to heal, to retrieve her balance and restore her beauty.  She will be able to recover, but we humans and many other species will disappear, until the Earth can generate conditions to bring us forth again in new forms.  Once we can accept the impermanence of our civilization with peace, we will be liberated from our fear.  Only then will we have the strength, awakening and love we need to bring us together.  Cherishing our precious Earth — falling in love with the Earth — is not an obligation.  It is a matter of personal and collective happiness and survival.

KATHRINE JOHANSSON: “The Most Important Symbolic Meaning Of The Present Moment”

Present Moment (4).jpg

“In every situation that we give energy, we can ask ourselves: does this sustain a viable timeline through which we can better our ways of collaborating with each other and with the Mother Earth and her upgraded, fine-vibrational living qualities?”

~Kathrine Johansson

 

Have you been asking yourself what to hold on to in this time just past the Trump election, while simultaneously experiencing a range of strong energy influxes, together with the most potent super moon on November 14th?  This article concerns the oppositional move of energies that characterizes the present moment, and asks what to look for in order for us to find the path that can best support both the individual and the collective at once.

The energetic divide

It is indeed challenging to figure out which leg to stand on in this very intense period of energy shifts, culminating with the latest super moon, that all carry strong energetic influence.  Many of us feel this influx, and it makes the process of bifurcation that has followed the energy shifts since 2015, and even stronger in the past half of 2016, all the more evident.  The term bifurcation is a term from physical science that Lisa Renee has taken into her contextual framework in order to explain how energies are splitting at the very atomic level, involving quantum scales in the process of upgrading of frequencies of Mother Earth all the way from her densest levels, to the more etheric and non-physical levels.  The fact that Mother Earth is upgrading her frequencies has caused effects in humans on a broad scale, since we are closely connected to Mother Earth, especially at the quantum scale.  As multidimensional beings, we can thus often feel this split within our innermost being through the fine levels of sentience that we have achieved, and the split shows effects at both physical, mental and spiritual levels.

As it has become clear to many, we also see this split externally at the collective level, in the political and social mess that is accumulating around us.  It implies, as many of us have sensed, that the descent of old social structures is becoming more and more intense, while the ongoing process that leads towards recalibration of our structures in order to accustom ourselves to the new and to the upgraded planet is happening simultaneously.  We are hereby approaching the point where we can connect and start building the new timelines that are more in tune with the 5D frequencies of mother earth.  What is essential in this move, is, in my view that the nodal points, from which we connect, carry viability.  The false matrix that we live in today is characterized by structures, and communicational and social forms that really do not represent viable ways of living, being and creating. So one way to navigate within the division of “the old” and “the new”, is to see it as “the non-viable”, and “the viable”.  In every situation that we give energy, we can ask ourselves: does this sustain a viable timeline through which we can better our ways of collaborating with each other and with the Mother Earth and her upgraded, fine-vibrational living qualities?

But how do we ‘know’ if something is viable?  The thing is that viability cannot be measured or captured by present scientific means.  It cannot be logically analyzed, so that we can detect it with our intellect and lower mental capacities.  Rather, we need to use our skills as multidimensional beings, and “feel” into any energy that we engage in, in order to know if it is there.  Detecting viability can help to lead us towards the most fruitful direction in which to move.  It can help us discern for ourselves, and for the whole, the nodal points from where we can create together with the living elements of our multiverse.

The social divide

All that being said, we might like to ask: where can we reach out and touch and feel some kind of security and sense of being on the right track at this moment, right after the Trump election in the USA, Brexit in the UK, and likely nationalistic movements in Scandinavia as well?  It is obvious that, according to the timeline which we have been born into in this lifetime, we see a situation where the USA at a symbolic level casts a mirror back to us that makes us understand what, through the Western (white patriarchal) mindset, has been created during the past thousands of years, and the value sets that have been established as a part of the modern version of these societies.  At the symbolic level, we could say that Donald Trump stands for the classical, white, patriarchal, “economic man” (liberalistic egoic human subject used in economic models), who has gained special privileges (over others) through hard work, and who represents himself as the all American hero, who can bring the country and its people into restored grandness (among other things by supporting great business).  Simultaneously, and contrary to this image, we have a situation in North Dakota, where indigenous tribes are gathering in order to protect their lands from the profit seeking oil companies.  They are meeting low media coverage.

But what is the symbolic message of this?

Feeling into this energetically, we can say that the indigenous Indians over a broad scale represent human root races that have inhabited the American lands over periods of thousands of years (much longer than the white Americans).  They, potentially, still carry the energetic voice of their forefathers with them.  Their message forms the anti-thesis to the Trump situation.  The all American white, male singular hero, who will save us all, versus the tribe community connected deeply to the land. In this light, we can read the message of the native Indians as an urge to make us understand the necessity of re-uniting with the qualities of Mother Earth, and her particular spiritual identity.  And to realize our symbiotic relationship with her.  We could say, at a time of climate change, increased pollution, and defect social systems, that there is no more important message right now than the call to move closer to Mother Earth, and to re-learn to listen to the language of nature.  This is a capacity that the native Indians were capable of, and that they, symbolically, come to represent.  This capacity involves a highly refined ability to communicate through extended sentience.

A sentient relation to Mother Earth

So what is extended sentience, we may ask?  As starseeds and lightworkers most of us know that well.  Because, what lies in this ability is the capacity to sense beyond the traditional five senses, into what western science today call “extra-sensory perception”, and the ability to connect this to spiritual (less physical reality) realms, and thus the ability to interact and harmonize human communities with elements of nature at multiple levels of existence.  In fact, it represents a quite sophisticated way of standing in relation to the world, and a level of insight that goes far beyond the capacities of the logical mind.  The native Indian tribes, as a human root race, have added evolutionary experience and insight into the collective pool of human experience (the most well-known of which is the Akashic records) over periods of thousands of years, involving multiple difference geographical zones and climate zones in North-, Central- and South America.  We have, within these root races a treasure of knowledge.  If any native Indian has been able to overcome the atrocities placed upon him and his kinds for hundreds of years, keeping his native nature alive, the insight that we can tap into from this point of departure, and the potential to connect this to new forms of community living, would form the real gold of our times; we need not dig for physical gold or silver (as is talked of in communities that feel the coming crash of the global financial system); but rather just to share sincerely among our fellow human beings, viable insight and knowledge.

Furthermore, the Native Indians, as one root race that can form a symbolic sign for us today, also come to stand for ways in which true viable spirituality has been, and still is, being destroyed by killing, slaughtering, torturing, and starving out people, who carry these traits, in human communities at a global scale.  The Indians have experienced such a suppression very physically.  Today, as starseeds, we experience it virtually, subtly, on more hidden terms.  But make no mistake: the force is ever so strong towards the elimination of the living human spirit, and it is built firmly into the structures of the present matrix.  So, while white male western supremacy is often presented as a story of grandness, such as Donald Trump also likes to present himself today, it is also a story of violent suppression of human spirit, and the life force in human beings on a broad historical, geographical and cultural scale.  The pain of having lost this basic spiritual alignment with the planet, and her diverse expressions, is what is so evident in many of the current dis-eases in modern Western societies, especially of social and psychological kinds, and as awakened sentient beings we feel it all the more.

Integrating viable elements into the collaborative patchwork of the New Now

During the summer and autumn of 2016, with the transforming energy waves many people have experienced new synchronicities, suddenly starting to come out of their shells, and gradually reuniting with their (spirit, soul, human) tribes, starting to feel butterflies in the tummies from time to time, feeling into the processes of still unknown ways of co-creation that are approaching.  The thought of letting ourselves be moved fully by the forces of life, moving ourselves and our collectives into viable dances with Mother Earth, become more and more compelling.  And let there be no doubt: we are moving into our tribes to form the new timelines.  And while remembering the importance of the precious knowledge that the indigenous people carry and has placed for themselves and for all of us, we will also be aware how our tribes can be extended with elements invented in the cultures of modernity. F rom here, we can move into new forms of being creative that thrive on processes of integration of elements from all times, while merging with Mother Earth from the best of our knowing; awakening our awareness of how our processes of knowing will always be on the move; how Mother Earth herself will always be on the move; how our relation to the cosmos will always be on the move… thus, moving into a New Now that shows us multiple phases in ways of dynamic co-creation between humans and Mother Earth.

With love and deep passion for all viable energies,

Kathrine Johansson

STEPHANIE LUCAS: “The Zen of Crying — 5 Reasons it Can Save the World”

The Zen of Crying - 5 Reasons it Can Save the World (2).png

For being such a natural act, there are a lot of negative connotations associated with crying.  As children, our parents fuss at us for crying.  Women are called overly emotional, fragile, and that they are making a big deal over nothing.  Men, well, they get a raw deal all around and have it pounded heavily into their minds that crying is a sign of weakness, vulnerability, and that ‘real men’ don’t cry.

So, science and our common sense tells us that all that aforementioned societal programming is total BS, and that crying is not only healthy, but that it is a vital component of physical and emotional health.  Take that Mom and Dad!  While crying may not directly save the world, it certainly has the potential to preserve our personal wellbeing, foster positive relationships, and it could even save lives — and one of those lives just might save the world some day!

Get out your tissues, forget about programmed concepts like ego and pride, and let’s explore the Zen of crying…

1. Crying Frees You of Control

I’ve read a few studies purporting that the need to have more control is correlated to the incidence of more men ‘losing their minds’ and also why their life span is 5 years shorter, which I find kind of hard to believe.  Because if you live in the same world I do, you know darn well that today’s women have just as much tendency to be controlling as men — if not more so — under their own ego’s need to crash through the glass ceiling, and have their ‘roar’ heard.

What does this have to do with crying?  If crying isn’t the norm for you, just letting the act occur is freeing yourself of control — at least temporarily.  Crying aids in letting go of the ego as it frees pent up emotions that may be subconsciously feeding your need to be in control at all.  Repression sources discomforts and fears that drive control issues, and a few tears could very well begin a metamorphosis that helps one regain alignment with free will choicesHow in alignment are you? Click the previous link for a fun assessment quiz.

2. Bottom Out Stress with a Few Tears

Without a doubt, stress kills and can be a major player in our lives when we allow its presence to overcome the senses.  However, the Zen of crying, is that it works hand in hand with number 1 — it relieves stress — stress that is often (okay, mostly) sourced by one’s need for control whether it concerns work, home, relationships, a car accident, or what to cook for dinner.  If a few tears can reduce my chances for a stress-related death, I say bring ‘em on!

3. Crying Enhances Connections

Certainly, if you open the faucet in front of someone with programmed beliefs that crying is for pussies and pansies, well, it may not strengthen that bond.  However, if you crying in front of — better yet WITH — someone who’s compassionate and supportive, it can be a powerful experience.  Crying alone can also create a stronger bond with your own SELF, as your mind is totally in the NOW moment — disconnected with programs — giving you the opportunity to tap into the true essence of your spiritual being.

4. Grab a Handkerchief… and Move On

In a bad relationship?  Tired of your peers or boss making you feel like crap?  Did you best friend let you down?  Maybe you received some hard to handle news… whatever it may be… the Zen of crying can assist.  Remember, everything in our perception of reality is transient and it is constantly changing, so learning to cope is essential.  As you cry, try to acknowledge each tear, each of those deep, noisy breaths, and allow each sound free you one by one of the anguish you feel over the hurt.  As they purge from you, a sense of calm and peace follows.  Take those moments of being in the present moment to recognize that you are now free — and make a conscious choice to let go.

5. Profound Moments of Clarity

Maybe it’s only me, but I have finished many a good cry and had to most prolific “AHA” moments of my life.  Through tears of joy, pain, and even those ‘I have no idea why in the hell I’m crying moments’ some end with great clarity.  Whatever the situation that brought me to tears may be, I am left with a sense of purpose, with solutions, or with insights as to WHY I am having that particular experience.

Maybe it’s not only me… but I confess to being quite the cry baby that Janis Joplin once screamed for, and I am grateful!  I will cry just about any time the need overwhelms me, anywhere, and in front of most anyone… Sometimes it makes connections stronger, sometimes it scares people.  Sometimes people still call me overly emotional and try to take away my power by demeaning me, but I do know this… crying seems to raise vibrational frequencies and I ALWAYS FEEL BETTER AFTER A GOOD CRY!
