NIKKI SAPP: “How To Be Confident While Remaining Humble”

“There’s a thin line between confidence and arrogance… it’s called humility. Confidence smiles, arrogance smirks.”

~Unknown

 

Somewhere along the line what we recognized as confidence may have been misconstrued a little. We started associating traits like aggressive, loud, opinionated and arrogant with being a confident person. You’ve probably seen the type, or maybe you are the type.

They know FOR SURE that what they believe is the unequivocal truth. Therefore they need to tell everyone about it… constantly.

When they aren’t able to convince someone to believe exactly as they believe they may be caught calling others, “asleep” or a “sheep” or any other plethora of derogatory names that I probably can’t mention here. We also may have misconstrued what it means to be humble a little bit too. Being Humble is associated with weak, shy, meek, and someone who cowers to others.

Someone who is so unsure of themselves or their beliefs that they keep them to themselves and are too insecure to tell everyone they meet their opinion on everything. Is there a way to be both? Can a confident person also be a humble person? In order to answer that question we must dissect what it means to be truly confident, and how does “artificial confidence” come about.

“Because one believes in oneself, one doesn’t try to convince others. Because one is content with oneself, doesn’t need others’ approval. Because one accepts oneself the whole world accepts him or her”

~Lao Tzu

 

There are many reasons a person may develop artificial/arrogant confidence. One may be cognitive dissonance, which means they may be holding on to a belief so tightly that when evidence is presented that contradicts this belief they may be completely unwilling to look at the new evidence. They may have become so attached to this belief that it has become a part of their sense of self.

Since they are completely attached to who they think they are it may be a painful experience for them to open their mind up and see things from a different perspective. The actual energy behind holding on to a belief so tightly that you are unwilling to let it go is fear.

The human ego is always afraid to be found out, so to speak, therefore, any threat of someone or something coming along and debunking one of its belief attachments may bring about a negative emotional reaction such as anger. Anytime anger is involved we can be assured that fear is the culprit behind it.

Genuine confidence doesn’t need to get angry because there is no part that fears being wrong or that others aren’t believing them. Another reason a person may develop artificial confidence is because they are insecure.

An insecure person may not truly believe in their theory or themselves so they feel if they can convince others that they are absolutely the right one they can at the same time convince themselves.

This is often done in an aggressive manner, because they are attached to the outcome of people believing them. Again, the fear behind not achieving the outcome they desire is causing them to act in a rude or aggressive manner. Genuine confidence can remain quiet, kind and humble because there is no underlying fear that needs other people to believe exactly what they are saying.

Genuine confidence is humble. It kind of realizes that most people are operating from their own level of understanding and trying to convince them that they are “stupid” or “wrong” usually won’t work anyway. The humble part of them realizes that LIVING and BEING their truth is always more effective than incessant talking or convincing ever will be.

Also, humble confidence isn’t attached to being right. In fact, it happily welcomes new ideas and beliefs because it knows that only when it opens itself up to seeing things from all perspectives is it able to perhaps learn something new.

“The time which people spend in convincing others, even half of this time if they spend on themselves, they can achieve a lot in life.”

~Arvind Katoch

 

In order to maintain humble confidence about our beliefs we must do two things. One is question ourselves….constantly. You may ask yourself, “Do I know absolutely without a doubt that this belief is true?” Meaning, “Did I see it with my own eyes”- normally the answer to this will be no.

So not to say that you won’t have some beliefs about things that involve situations that you weren’t physically there, but it just means that you always maintain a healthy sense of doubt about your beliefs.

This doesn’t mean that you’re unsure of yourself, it means you are wise, because it means you are open to hearing new evidence. Or you can ask yourself, “Is it possible that I am so attached to this belief that it has become a part of who I think I am?” Or even, “Does it matter if the person I am telling about my belief believes me or not? In this present moment does the fact that they are convinced or not convinced change anything in this exact moment in time?”

“Confidence is silent.

Insecurity is loud.”

~Unknown

 

You may find that most of the time, the answer to that is “no.” The other thing a person can do in order to remain humbly confident in their beliefs is to realize that every person they come in contact with can only understand things from their own level of understanding. Which means they are only operating from their own personal programming which may or may not be completely different than yours.

So yes, there may be times when you tell someone something and you enlighten them to something that they hadn’t thought of before but there will also be times where any effort to convince will fall on deaf ears.

When you are unattached to the outcome, you will be fine with either without getting frustrated or angered. Once we realize that our “truth” may not be someone else’s “truth” we can completely relax into interpersonal relationships and take every interaction with a human being as a potential learning experience, which will allow us to always be learning and growing as a person.

THE MINDS JOURNAL: “10 Signs You Have A Toxic Partner Who Will Try To Take Away Your Happiness”

One form of love, which is considered the most frequent, is, unfortunately, toxic love. This love appears as a result of insecurity or fear, and it does not do favors to anyone.

Our environment will become even more toxic when we get attached more and more to those people that are wrong for us. Toxic people have the ability to drain us of our happiness, regardless of the fact if we allow that or not. These people build their toxic relationships on an unstable foundation.

Here, we will present you some sign which indicated that you might be in such a relationship, or signs which suggest that you are with a toxic partner. You will definitely need a change when you notice these signs because toxic people and relationships cannot be suitable for every one of us.

10 Signs You Have A Toxic Partner Who Will Try To Take Away Your Happiness

 

1. You are not a priority.

Sorry about this, but when you are not your partner’s priority now, you will never be. He or she has to hold you on the identical standard they hold themselves. Refusing to do that will be a sign that you have to move on, as you deserve a lot more.

2. They’re always blaming you for their mistakes.

The mistakes they made cannot be yours; they have to be prepared for everything they say or do. You should never be blamed for their own mistakes. Toxic people are obsessed with the idea of bringing other people down, especially those that they are closest with.

3. They have serious double principles and standards.

These people believe that they can do everything, while their partners are not allowed to do those same things. For example, you would like to go outside and spend some time together with friends, and in the same time, your partner is also with his friends; however, they will refuse that right when you ask them. Remember that they see you just as their property and not as their loved one.

4. They don’t like your loved ones.

Usually, toxic people will not really like the ones that really matter to you. They will not like that idea as those that care about you will normally see their true self. In fact, toxic people hate this, so they are going to try hard in order to keep you far from your loved ones.

5. They disrespect your boundaries.

Toxic people will never respect your limits, and they are always going to do something or force you into certain things which you wouldn’t like to do. As a result of this, you will find yourself in uncomfortable situations, which are not supposed to happen.

6. They always make you feel sad.

They seem like they try their best in order to bring those that love them down. Toxic people will not support those around them, but they will tear those people apart. For example, when you are happy about something, they are going to everything in order to ruin your happiness. This pleases them after all.

7. They tend to lie to you a lot.

So, for some unknown reasons, toxic people feel good when they lie. So, they are going to lie you about something that is insignificant and goes too far in order to reach their goal, which is making you feel terrible. Remember that you cannot trust someone you love although you would like to do it with your whole heart.

8. They won’t give you a space for yourself.

Toxic people never allow their partners to have their personal space. For example, having your personal space means having time to reflect and think, and thinking well may make you come to the decision of leaving your partner. These people love crossing boundaries, so when you do something without their permission, they will be furious.

9. They attempt to control you.

These people adore controlling you, and not only you but every single thing in life. This type of control means the ultimate superpower for them. Just said, they would like to have the ability to control you and make you do what they want you to do. They are going to cut ties when they see that they are not able to control you.

10. They don’t care about your necessities.

These people are never going to listen to you or care about your own necessities. They are selfish people, so they don’t want to worry about you or about everything you need. They practice only self-care, although you may be in a relationship for a long time.

SOUL TRAVEL RULES: “5 Signs You Are Dealing With a Complete Narcissist”

Narcissists are people who are always full of themselves. They don’t look beyond themselves. They end up hurting people around who are compassionate and sensitive.

Narcissists always want to be the eye of the storm. They want constant attention. They dump the burden of their insecurities on others. Narcissists make people miserable in a number of ways. The term narcissist has its root in the Greek mythology. It comes from the myth about Narcissus. Narcissus was a man who fell in love with his own reflection. This self-obsession led to his demise eventually.

Freud has often theorized about this idea of narcissism and self-absorption. He had claimed that such people are far from the real world and often lead to their own doom. Moreover, it is not very tough to spot narcissists around us these days.

Here is a list of signs that show that you are dealing with a complete narcissist:

1)  They think they are the masters of everything and know almost everything.

They can preach a doctor about medicine. This is how they are. Highly interruptive, narcissists hate those conversations which are either neutral or not about them. They crave attention and try to drive the conversations towards themselves only.

2)  They are never the rule, always the exception.

Just as they assume they are superior to others in every way possible, they also believe themselves to be at the top of the ladder. They believe that laws and dictates are below them.

3)  Their first impression creates a deep impact within us.

However, with time, their true colors are out there for people to see. They exude charm, and confidence. But they wear off and emotionally drain you.

4)  They feed their ego by bringing people down.

Narcissists tend to use rage to put you into a submissive stance so that they can naturally dominate and rule.

5)  They have zero empathy.

They aren’t wired to be sensitive towards others. Though neutral themselves, they know the tactics of how a human empath can be manipulated.

LISA RENEE (Time Shift Blog): “Pressurized Adaptation”

“At this time, we must distinguish the differences between discerning Tyrants and true Leaders, as these are very different roles and should not be confused or equated. A true Leader does not want to take our power away, while a Tyrant will take the position of total authority over others. To spiritually evolve, we cannot play into the Controller games anymore, we must reclaim our personal power and accept responsibility for ourselves.”

~Lisa Renee

 

The planet has just completed its Magnetic Peak cycle, which discharged a massive amount of magnetic force into the earth. The subatomic particles of elemental matter are rearranging to support the planetary body shift into the next harmonic universe. All communication systems connected to these levels of planetary architecture are undergoing fluctuation, reconfiguration and potentially re-building interstellar links that reconnect earth portals to realign into multiple star systems and celestial bodies. This massive shift at the quantum scale is changing the laws of structure in the architecture that governs function over our matter body, as well as our consciousness bodies.

For many multidimensional people on the path of Ascension, how we connect into many levels of the consciousness structure has radically changed, our lightbody is radically changing, and our physical body is undergoing a series of Adaptations in order to meet the new energy requirements. Our previous ways of consciousness connection and communication are in fluctuation, while our lightbody is being reconfigured to accommodate the changing planetary architecture, solar architecture and beyond.

Essentially, we are the last generation of people that were born into consciousness slavery on the third dimensional earth. We will have known consciousness slavery, and will have put an end to it in this lifetime, while in this physical body. Ascending humans are evolving into developing new abilities that change the characteristics of what it means to be human, from Dreamwalking, to Transfiguration, Translocation and Transmigration. These are revealing more of the Diamond Sun templates function as a consciousness transport between time fields, and what true freedom is. This month’s newsletter will attempt to bring awareness to these multi-dimensional changes, and the opportunity we have to consciously participate as the living expression of the changing laws of structure.

Spiritual Ascension is the progression of human consciousness, governed by complex quantum mechanics as it moves throughout time and space, which is essentially about moving our consciousness intelligence from one station of reality to another. The human body is a holographic light projector for transmitting the intelligent energies of the Soul-Spirit, and is capable of shifting that Soul-Spirit body into another station of reality, into one that exists in a higher dimension of time. Descending our Soul-Spirit from the higher realms to inhabit in our cells, while shifting our consciousness into another station of reality, is happening at this time. This shift into another station of reality is made possible while we are inhabiting our current physical body and have the same birth name identity.

In previous cycles, to shift the consciousness of the Soul-Spirit in this same way, we would require another identity and body to incarnate into another timeline that existed in another station of reality. This process we have done many times before and it is described as reincarnation. During the Ascension Cycle, we have the unique ability to change the current location of our consciousness bodies, as we undergo a succession of spiritual initiations, while we have the same physical body. The accumulated memories of our Soul-Spirit intelligence streams that we have transformed within many other previous lifetimes, are being shifted out from their former location in time, as the state of our current identity and consciousness shifts.

This can also be described as a mass human Soul body retrieval that is returning to populate the earth body, to be reclaimed by the physical bodies or the individual people that they actually belong to. Many people on the earth who are not awakened at this time, have aspects of their higher self that have been stuck in some damaged area of the earth body, from previous timelines where great trauma and cataclysm had transpired. As we change the location of where our previous station of identity and Soul-Spirit body had existed previously in the time field, it requires some Adaptations in order to acclimatize our physical body to these changes that are impacting the Collective Soul and the planetary consciousness structure.

Humans that can more easily adapt to the current myriad of environmental challenges and energetic factors, are undergoing types of Adaptations that are catalyzing physiological changes. The physiological changes are designed for deep and powerful consciousness transformation to be possible within a physical body on the earth. In some circumstances, as the physical body undergoes physiological Adaptations, these changes catalyze more of the metabolic, organ and glandular systems to activate or wake from dormancy, in order to prepare for the spirit to inhabit the body. The Adaptations are connecting through the bodily systems to increase vital force circulation, which facilitates connection into the spiritual-energetic circuitry. Many energetic circuits and meridians on the planet have been disconnected or damaged. As a result the main forces that exist in the human body, the life force, physical vitalities and spiritual energies, were not interconnected or functioning properly. This has contributed to the overall disconnection and lack of communication between the higher spiritual bodies and the physical human body, which impacts the entire human race.

Biological Evolution

The physiological Adaptations that are influencing humanity are in response to the series of biological and spiritual evolutionary markers that are profoundly impacting the planetary architecture, planetary elementals, and the earth element itself. The combined changes are further impacting the human phenotype as it has been documented within scientific consensus. The human race phenotype is a generalized expression of characteristics and traits influenced from the combination of the genetics, behavioral and environmental factors, as well as the variety of influences stemming from the collective consciousness. Science does not include the many factors of artificial intelligence, genetic modification and mind control, playing a direct role in shaping and controlling the traits of the human phenotype. The human phenotype describes the physical characteristics and traits that define the species of human beings.

As we transition from one root race to another, these species factors, such as the physiological functions of the human body, are rapidly responding to the massive alterations that are occurring in the earth body. This means that the collective human blueprint and human bodies are responding to the impending biological evolution that is required as a result of the planet’s structural shift. The current evolutionary pressures are causing (energy to form) anomalies to occur, especially within many environmental and physical factors. This new consciousness platform requires specific physiological Adaptations to the genetic changes that are occurring in the human race, in order to acclimate to the new set of conditions and energies that we are being further exposed to, as they are related to the human evolutionary process. Those awakening now are in the forefront of embodying these Adaptations as they are the consciousness bridge spanning into the future birth cycle of the next root race of the human species.

Adaptive Traits lead to Identity Rebirth

Structural, physiological and behavioral Adaptations are necessitated by the deep impacts that are being made by current evolutionary forces sweeping onto the planet, reaching critical mass. Behavioral adaptation to the changing consensus that humanity is manifesting the consciousness state of the global reality through a self-directed thought follows energy paradigm, as well as, adapting to the energetic conditions that realization imposes on the entire species, is an example of adaptive traits coming online. Behavioral adaptations such as these resonate with the Universal Laws and as such, they further activate the higher DNA functions in the human biology.

For the human race to survive in this new energetic terrain, we are being forced to transform our beliefs and develop a variety of new behavioral patterns of adaptive traits. Adaptive traits stimulated by higher truths, such as comprehending the Universal Laws through which we are governed, further support evolution of the collective human race blueprint, by helping to catalyze the future generations’ capacity to better evolve into higher functioning DNA. The human race is currently in a phase of Adaptation to the planetary evolutionary process, and this is a difficult reeducation and learning process required to continue to evolve and develop higher consciousness. It is made difficult because of the current mind control state over the nature of reality and the lack of public knowledge being shared about the rapid shifts impacting the planet, that describe planetary ascension. At the individual level, each person must decide if they are willing to open their mind and release dependencies upon the old paradigm and their subjugation to the Controller archetype as their main authority. The Controller archetype of the False King of Tyranny exists everywhere; inside people that are politicians, employers, gurus, any person we give our power away to willingly. At this time, we must distinguish the differences between discerning Tyrants and true Leaders, as these are very different roles and should not be confused or equated. A true Leader does not want to take our power away, while a Tyrant will take the position of total authority over others. To spiritually evolve, we cannot play into the Controller games anymore, we must reclaim our personal power and accept responsibility for ourselves.

The thought paradigm must shift so that our species is able to acclimate to the new energy platform, which essentially is creating a new energetic terrain and new earthly habitat. Our species is evolving into the next progression of root race, and the body we inhabit now is a hybrid. It has the ability to spiritually evolve and transition into the new root race DNA imprint with the support of the planet’s new consciousness structure.

Currently, those on the ascending path may undergo deep transformation that is similar to a personal identity rebirth, which reveals a new higher self-version in place of their former ego selves. The rebirth process is the soul actualization of the personality, the soul ray infuses the layers of ego with the higher qualities of the true essence and higher nature of that individual.

To go through this dimensional shift, we must change the destructive ways of thinking and behaving we had inherited from the 3D thought forms of the Controller’s predator mind, and adapt to the accumulative impacts that the current energy shifts create. If we can reeducate ourselves to learn what it means to stay in the energy flow of the moment and not resist the need for change, then adaptation to the planetary shift is much easier.

The intergalactic transmissions are recreating the structures of the planet, and are essentially, recreating the human race to evolve into the higher self-version of their former personality selves. This process is undetectable to the five main senses of a person who is limited by 3D consciousness, and refuses to break through the reality boxes that they co-created with the 3D earth elements. Generally, the profile of this person is developed in their mental body and personality, and unintegrated with the other levels. There is a difference between reality boxes that are co-created with personal choice, and those which have been used to ensnare people into consciousness traps, based on the hidden pain and trauma that they believe IS the reality box. The discernment is in knowing when people are being intentionally deceived, using the predator mind, in order to use other people’s energy that has been parasitized and stolen for the Controller agenda. Which is forcing people to repeat their painful trauma patterns, without their consent or knowledge, in order to gain more material power and control over them while they are inside the reality box.
