SUSAN VIVYAN: “The Still Point Creates Balance Within You”

Amidst the chatter (inner or outer) remember the still point within you.  You can find your still point via meditation, yoga or any activity connecting you to your flow.  The still point is when you touch the Oneness of All dissolving any worries, fears or concerns and you are immersed in the present moment.

Even for a moment in your conventional time when you find your still point balance is created within your total being.  This still point has nothing to do with time as you know it.  You can be at the still point for a moment and it will extend to other areas of your life unbeknownst to you.  Of course being at the still point every moment of your waking life would allow a clearer perspective.  However, the balance is achieved when the still point and your groundedness to the earth balance one another.

As you become a more integrated multidimensional being the ability to integrate the still point and the groundingness of being on Earth is easier in your time (as you know it).

Being in the flow is different for everyone whether it be meditation, yoga, art, dance, being in nature, or work allowing the inner core full expression.  One activity is no better than the other.  One has to find the activity which activates the flow, the still point where you find your eternal limitless self.

You language is limited, your perspective expanding.  There will come to be a point in time when time is limitless, matters less and there will be other meant to communicate other than verbal exchange.  It is happening NOW.  The still point takes you to the place where words, time, self disappears and your Soul Essence connects to the Oneness of All.  Work that is expansive enhances the Still point that balances the higher dimensions with the earthly reality, aligns the chakras, balancing the masculine and feminine energies.

Find, discover, and explore ways to find your still point.  No pressure.  Play and have fun!

KARA SCHALLOCK: “More…”

Do you perceive Beauty everywhere?  Do you see it even when the intellect says it’s ugly?  Do you perceive a difference between you and those you judge to be “less than” like so-called immigrants, those you judge that linger in 3D (according to you), folks who hurt others?  Or do you perceive a difference between you and those you deem “more than?”  Remember, we are all One.  You are connected with everyone and everything.  There is no “us and them” in the New.  You may observe some doing things you wouldn’t choose to do.  Can you see that perhaps the “others” help you transform all lower energies (and integrate higher energies) in yourself?  Can you see the Love within all that reflects the Love that you are?  If so, you indeed are firmly in the New.  If not, perhaps there’s more work to do.  You can love all and yet choose not to be in relationship with those who vibrate differently than yourself.

There is and has been an expansion of your Heart and Crown chakras.  This expansion helps you be more accepting and compassionate.  Be aware of how you feel moment to moment.  One minute you seem to be flowing in expansion and the next minute not feeling as though anything has shifted.  This fluctuation is how it is for most as we continue to detach from 3D and embrace the New.  Some physical manifestations you may experience as expansion occurs are tingling (especially in or on the head and in and around the Heart).

You may feel dizzy as well, yet notice the choices you are making; notice how you are expanding; especially in your thoughts and actions.  Notice how fearless you are.  Be aware too that if it seems things happen to you, like others not choosing to be around you or being fired from a job or not having enough money, that it still is your choice… whether it’s a conscious one or not. Remember you attract to you what is within your consciousness.  Breathe, flow and ground.  Take care of yourself.  What life do you choose to create?  The energies that integrate within you help you create your ideal life (based on how you want to feel) without chaos or confusion.

As the energy continuously builds, remind yourself that you are not alone, even though many are on different paths and going at different speeds.  Some may feel exhilerated, while others are anxious and angry.  I notice that the ones I truly feel connected with are children, while some adults in my life seem belligerent. (Hmmm; do I have both energies within me?)

Engage where and when you can as you are called to and let the rest go, for each being must choose for themselves.  You need not become definsive or match others’ vibration or take anything personally.  Stand in your own Truth and honor others for wherever they may be.

Never doubt that all we’ve been doing is merging with our Soul/GodSelf/Divinity.  This is our True Self.  Being fully immersed as our True Self, there is no more seeking outside of ourselves; actually, there is no seeking at all; there is only a Knowing.  This immersion is more than being “spiritual”; this is true being.  How do we do this?  First, we must release and transform all old patterns, emotions and beliefs, along with anything that limits or holds us back in duality.  When we clear all of the old, we experience true self-worth.  We experience true Wholeness; not just in one moment, but in every moment; this is being authentic.  We truly know that we are One with all of life; we are Source.

Generally speaking, the phase we are in now, if you’re ready and committed, is to practice; putting all you know into action everyday and in every moment… walking your talk.  It is not enough to read others’ words only; it is essential to put words into action, to be what you say you are.  Work for all; be in Divine Service.  When we serve all, we serve ourselves and most importantly, we serve Divine Will.  Isn’t that one of the main reasons of why we’re on Earth at this time?  We each have a path; a mission; it is based on our gifts and where we are drawn.  When you are Joy, you trust, you love, you serve.  You are free.

Meanwhile, continue to release and trust your process.  Allow yourself to not be comfortable, for the New is not comfortable.  Trust that all is in Divine Order.  You may want your loved ones to join you, yet trust they have their own path, so honor them.  Attempting to change others is of the old and it not only distracts you, but pushes them further away.

Trust that as you become somewhat comfortable in one phase of your Journey, another arrives.  It is so very important to take care of yourself through diet, rest and being still.  Only you know what is self-loving for you.  Fill your own cup first and then you will be able to serve others unconditionally.

In my own life, I see so much has shifted. People I was once close with have distanced themselves.  My diet has shifted, as have so much in my life.  The biggest shift is that I am extremely aware of not only where I resist, but where others resist as well.  I notice old longings surface and I see where I am; whether it’s here, there, nowhere and everywhere.  I know many of you can relate to this ebb and flow of life.

Each of us has a calling.  No one calling is better or worse than another.  Each is an aspect of Divine Service; be it healing, collecting refuse, nursing, teaching or simply being Love without a career of any kind.  Sometimes you’re called to be somewhere.  When you arrive, you may not resonate with the place at all.  However, there are no mistakes.  Some years ago, I was called to Idaho.  I had never even heard of it before and when I arrived I uttered, “Uh-oh!”  Idaho has never felt like home to me and yet I am here; I’m here for a purpose.  It’s not necessary to know what that purpose is and you don’t need to know the whys of where you are either.  The main thing to do is to say Yes.  We share our Light no matter where we are or what we do.

Each of us is unique; what works for one may not work for another.  This is why it’s essential to follow one’s own guidance.  We integrate Light and release all uniquely.  Realize too that much occurs without us consciously willing it to be so.  We can observe the changes and I do love this, as when the changes bypass the separate ego, they cannot be interfered with.  However, we on a deeper level choose everything; consciously or not.  When we give our Power away to others, we stop our own Transformation, for others cannot truly know what is best for us.  This allows us to take full Responsbility for our own Transformation.  What helps this is to fully merge with our Souls and then step out of the way.  Instead, we follow our guidance, even when it makes no sense.  While we surrender to the unconscious aspect of evolution, we still must act in a way that goes beyond the separate ego; the patterns we have anchored that are of the old.

To integrate the higher frequencies that bring healing and wholing to our cells and DNA, we must do the clearing work.  Some happens spontanously; with others we consciously choose to shift.  Whether we integrate unconsciously or consciously, we may experience many physical sensations such as electrical currents in different parts of our body, weight fluxes, sleep disturbances, headaches, blurry eyes (or as if there is something irritating in the eye), shifts in elimination and all sorts of things not mentioned here.  When in doubt, ask your body and your guidance to see if it’s related to Ascension or not (it usually is!).

Be aware that your Sensitivity is expanding and upgrading.  This includes more acute hearing, seeing, feeling, smelling and more.  Certain situations may be irritating.  If you feel overloaded by stimuli, rest or step away.  If you take things personally, realize this is not true Sensitivity; it’s separate ego-sensitivity.  It also means that you may still be attached to what others think of you.  Let this go so you may experience true Sensitivity.

Are you ready to move onto new phases of Discovery?  Are you committed to your Ascension and evolving into being New; brand New?  Are you still teetering on the edge, not sure if you want to jump?  Wherever you are is fine.  Trust yourself and follow your guidance/Intuition.

GILBERT ROSS: “The 12 Biggest Life Secrets Forgotten By Mankind”

The more I ponder about life, the more I come to one solid realisation:  The biggest curse and predicament of modern Man is forgetfulness.  Like a creeping malaise, forgetfulness has seeped through all of Man’s being and doing.  Individually, collectively, historically or culturally, we are spellbound to forget.

We haven’t only forgotten our past but also our place in the present and our responsibility of the future.  On a personal level, our ego-based state of consciousness is on a mission to keep us in this state of forgetfulness — to break the link to our being as a whole and to the interconnected web of life and universal consciousness.  On a collective level, this forgetfulness is perpetuated and reinforced by social and cultural means — mainly by being tranced into a reality of unconscious consumerism, inauthentic lifestyles and a materialistic mindset.

The brighter side of it is that we all have the chance to re-member and re-connect to ourselves and the universe at large.  The power of remembering is at the centre of the spiritual path to self-discovery and realisation.

Here is a list of what I believe we have forgotten, or more importantly, a list of things to remember:

1. We forgot our place in the natural world:

In the last couple of hundred years we have detached ourselves from nature.  We have exploited, ravaged, consumed and attempted to control nature to appease our greed driven by self-absorbed madness.  We tried to distance ourselves from the natural circle of life.  We forgot how to listen to and understand the natural rhythms and cycles of the earth — its signs and languages.  We forgot to follow nature’s path and live in balance with it.

2. We forgot our connection to life and the cosmos:

By detaching ourselves from nature, we forgot that we are deeply connected to it and to the cycles of the universe.  Some tribes on the outskirts of ‘civilisation’, and who still follow ancestral ways, have preserved this connection with respect and reverence.  We, on the other hand have instilled a sense of separateness which drove us out of balance and in dis-ease.  We forgot how all consciousness is interconnected and weaved into a delicate and beautiful dance.

3. We forgot our ancient wisdom:

We forgot our ancestral wisdom.  In the quest to gain scientific knowledge through the rationalisation of our mind, we forgot the wisdom through the opening of our heart.  We forgot the ancient stories and folk wisdom that was handed down from from seers and wise men of antiquity who lived in harmony with the universe.

4. We forgot our path and our dreams:

By stirring away from our inner path we forgot to dream the dream of life.  More importantly we forgot how to awake in that dream and see our true nature as co-creators of life — as the dreamers.  We forgot that we have the power to weave dreams and use our power of intention to direct those dreams into manifestation.

5. We forgot our purpose:

With too much chatter, noise and distraction in this dense reality we forgot what we came here to do.  We forgot our purpose.  We are caught in the mass trance of fabricated consensual reality.  We lost sight of our authenticity, that inner spark that drives us towards our happiness and self-realisation.  We forgot that we are here to be realised as spiritual beings embodied in a physical form and embedded in a congenial universe.

6. We forgot that everything is Love:

This is perhaps the deepest mystery of all that only some seers came to understand it as an all-embracing truth.  That truth however is hidden somewhere deep inside of us.  We knew it at some point but have lost touch with it.  We forgot that everything is ultimately energy and consciousness and that love is the fundamental fabric of existence that runs through all energy and consciousness.

7. We forgot to Forgive:

By being made to believe that we are separate and disconnected from the others and from everything else, we forgot to forgive.  In its deepest sense forgiveness is the act of reminding ourselves that we are one with everyone and everything and that there is no victim or perpetrator.  It’s just all of us together moving together in a dynamic web we call life.

8. We forgot to be Free:

Remind yourself one thing everyday:  You were made to be free.

We were born and raised in a ‘reality’ where freedom is only a concept.  We were bound to the shackles of fear, misconceptions, false ideologies, material reward and held ransom to rules and laws laid down to safeguard the interest of the few.  We were made to forget that we are free agents of change.  We are free to be who we are without fear or guilt.

9. We forgot our real power:

Living in fear has made us forget how powerful we are.  We forgot the massive power of our will and intention to change our reality.  We have been tranced into sleepwalking and following the ready made signs like automatons.

10. We forgot our lessons from history:

If there is something that history has taught us is how fast we are at forgetting our lessons.  Time and time again we keep on repeating the same mistakes, stuck in the same patterns of greed and self-destruction.  We cannot be blamed individually for the mistakes done by humanity in the past but we are responsible as individuals to to remind ourselves of the past mistakes and pass it on to the collective psyche.

11. We forgot to be simple:

Human life got more complex and complicated.  We are seduced by the glitter of more and not by the power of less.  We forgot to be simple and the meaning of simplicity.  Life is simple really.  Simplicity means discarding all the inessential stuff and ideas that clutter the view to our life purpose and the other truths we have forgotten.

12. We forgot to trust, believe and wonder:

We lost our enchantment with the world.  We forgot to be wondered by the miracle of life.  We do not stand in awe at the majesty of it all anymore.  Our skepticism and cynical view of the world has made us lose trust in ourselves and the magic of the universe.  We forgot how to believe.  This is perhaps the biggest tragedy of all.  It weakened our spirit and impoverished our soul.

The brighter side of it is that we all have the chance to re-member and re-connect to ourselves and the universe at large. The power of remembering is at the centre of the spiritual path to self-discovery and realisation.

TANAAZ (Forever Conscious): “Numerology: Discover Your Sun Number”

sun-6

Just like you have an astrological Sun Sign, you also have a Numerological Sun Number. This Sun Number indicates the core of who you are and can help to paint a picture as to what your soul has come here to achieve.

Sun Numbers range from 1 to 9 and each hold a particular vibration and energy that is meant to guide you on your journey.

Even though your Sun Number is only part of the picture, you can use it along with your Sun Sign and Life Path Number to get a fuller picture of your energetic nature and strength and weaknesses.

Here’s how to work out your Sun Number:

Take your date of birth, for example- December 29

Add the month (12) to the date (29)= 41

Then break it down to a single digit so, 4+1= 5

This gives you the Sun Number of 5

(Keep adding the numbers together to get to a single digit, for example if you get 12 keep breaking it down further 1+2=3)

Here is what your Sun Number Means:

Sun Number 1

Number 1 holds the vibration of leadership and ambition, it is also one of the most creative numbers and symbolises the planting of that first seed.

Number 1 energy is independent, determined, original and highly ambitious. Number 1 energy can also be arrogant, stubborn or self-centered when not in check.

Those with the Sun Number of 1 are driven to start new projects and release new ideas into the world. They are also  natural born leaders who have the ability to take a creative idea and make it happen.

Number 1’s can often be easily sidetracked and keen to start the next project before seeing their first project through. For this reason, Number 1’s need to learn how to work with others and find people who will help them ensure their projects have longevity.

In love and relationships, Number 1’s are quick to fall in love but also quick to fall out of love. Their greatest lesson is learning how to open their heart to others and learning how to put others before themselves.

Number 1 energy is closely linked with the astrological signs of Aries and Leo and the energy of the Sun.

Sun Number 2

Number 2 holds the vibration of harmony, unity, compassion and healing. If Number 1 energy symbolises the planting of the first seed, Number 2 energy symbolises taking care of and nourishing that seed so it may bloom into a healthy flower.

When not in balance, Number 2 energy can be expressed as being too dependent on others, manipulative and even passive aggressive.

Those with the Sun Number of 2 need to learn how to express their truth and release their emotions. They also need to learn how to care for themselves as much as they care for other people.

Number 2’s are often naturally empathic and very intuitive. They are often sensitive to energies and can instantly pick up on how someone else is feeling.

Number 2’s thrive in relationships as long as they are not compromising their own beliefs or health and wellbeing. They are also extremely good mediators and do well working with other people or for other people.

Number 2 energy is closely linked with the astrological sign of Cancer and the energy of the Moon.

Sun Number 3

Number 3 holds the vibration of adventure, play and learning. Number 3 energy is often very social and is extremely curious about life and different cultures.

If Number 2 energy symbolises caring for the flower, Number 3 energy symbolises the blooming flower that opens its eyes to the world for the first time. Number 3 energy symbolises the excitement, the wonder, the awe and the need to express everything it is seeing, hearing and experiencing.

Number 3 energy is very sociable, friendly and outgoing and those with the Sun Number 3 often have very large social circles.

When not in balance, Number 3 energy can manifest as being over-indulgent, scattered and even superficial. It is important for Number 3 energy to also learn how to become more grounded and responsible.

Number 3’s are easily distracted and bored and need to be mentally stimulated. They never stop learning and are always looking for new information or new insights. They are also very open minded and naturally drawn to understanding the spirit world.

In relationships, Number 3 energy is very open to all types of things and experiences. In order to feel content in a relationship, those with Number 3 energy need their space and freedom. When given freedom, they are loyal lovers.

Number 3 energy is closely linked to the astrological sign of Sagittarius and the energy of the planet Jupiter.

Sun Number 4

Number 4 holds the vibration of balance, dedication and trustworthiness. If Number 3 energy is the flower that opens its eyes to the world for the first time, Number 4 energy symbolises the flower that gets to work in order to fulfil its purpose.

Number 4 is driven to solve problems and is extremely self-disciplined, especially when it comes to achieving goals. When not in balance however, Number 4 energy can manifest as being stubborn, anxious or narrow minded.

Number 4 energy is driven to create a life of stability but part of their lesson is learning how to go with the flow and embrace the changes that life brings. When they are too planned, Number 4 energy can feel disappointed and even stuck.

Those with the Sun Number of 4 benefit when they think outside of the box and have big dreams and wishes to go after. They are also naturally drawn to technology and revolutionary ideas.

In relationships, Number 4’s are extremely loyal and seek to find a partner that can bring them comfort and stability. They work well with others and are often extremely family oriented.

Number 4 energy is closely linked with the astrological sign of Aquarius and the energy of Uranus.

Sun Number 5

Number 5 holds the vibration of creativity, change and intellect. Number 5 energy is extremely adaptive and can morph itself to handle and fit in to any situation.

If Number 4 energy symbolises the flower hard at work, Number 5 energy symbolises the creative ideas and inspirations that follow. Number 5 energy also symbolises the changes from one goal to the next.

When Number 5 energy is not in balance, it can manifest as a lack of commitment, scattered energy, worried thinking, over thinking and untrustworthiness.

Number 5 energy thrives with change and seeks out transformative experiences in order to grow, learn and develop. They require a lot of mental stimulation and do well when they are juggling many projects at once.

In relationships, Number 5’s are very adaptable and friendly. Their partner needs to be their best friend and they also need their freedom to express their individuality.

Number 5 energy is closely linked with the astrological signs of Gemini and Virgo and the energy of Mercury.

Sun Number 6

Number 6 energy is stable, balanced and very centered. If Number 5 symbolises creative ideas, Number 6 symbolises how those creative ideas are manifested into reality.

When in balance, Number 6 energy is compassionate, trustworthy, hardworking and drawn to all things relating to health and fitness. When out of balance however, Number 6 energy can feel over worked, physically sick, stuck or unwilling to change and jealous of other’s success.

Those with a Sun Number of 6 have the ability to take their ideas and turn them into realities. They are extremely creative and hardworking, which allows them to create empires.

Often those born with Number 6 energy are naturally gifted in entrepreneurship and also take a mind-body approach to living.

Number 6 energy loves to be in partnership with others both romantically and in business. In relationships specifically, Number 6 need to feel deeply attached to their partners. While they can be slow to warm up in relationships they are extremely loyal and dedicated once they commit. At times they can be controlling and jealous, so they need to also be mindful of this in their relationships.

Number 6 energy is closely linked with the astrological signs of Taurus and Libra and the energy of Venus.

Sun Number 7

Number 7 holds the vibration of spirituality, deep thinking, emotions and intuition. If Number 6 energy represents turning creative ideas into realities, Number 7 energy represents the deeper meaning behind those realities. In many ways, Number 7 energy is the Divine intelligence that we cannot see but we know is there.

When out of balance, Number 7 energy can be highly sensitive, aloof, scattered or out of touch with reality. Number 7 energy can also be manipulative and drawn to obsessive behaviors or addictions.

Those with the Sun Number of 7 are highly gifted when it comes to their intuition and are naturally drawn to lead with their heart. Number 7 energy is highly creative but also dreamy. It is this dreamy quality that allows them to create art, music and to delve into the hidden realms.

Number 7’s can find it hard to integrate or to accept reality at times and may struggle to deal with “human responsibilities”. To counteract this, Number 7’s should always follow their intuition and make decisions from this place.

In relationships, Number 7’s need to be with someone that can go into the deeper, hidden realms of life. They also need someone who is going to accept and appreciate their emotional sensitivities. In general, Number 7 is extremely loyal but can also be overly needy or idealistic when it comes to love.

Number 7 energy is closely linked with the astrological sign of Pisces and the energy of Neptune.

Sun Number 8

Number 8 holds the energy of success, strength and authority. They are very practical and are especially driven in their careers. If Number 7 represents the Divine intelligence, Number 8 represents the mind intelligence and the power of our conscious mind.

When not in balance, Number 8 energy can manifest as being tense or uptight, materialistic or controlling. It can also manifest as being too ego-driven and out of touch with the heart.

Those with the Sun Number of 8 are destined for success in their careers and do very well at climbing the corporate ladder. They are very brave and not afraid to take chances, they are also excellent at negotiating or spinning facts to get their point across.

Number 8 energy is also extremely conscientious and makes it a point to think about the thoughts and feelings of everyone involved without getting emotionally attached. Although this can make them appear cold to others, this gift allows them to complete the work they need to.

In relationships, Number 8 energy is extremely loyal and needs to be with a partner who is very committed and dedicated. Number 8 energy is also very career driven so they need to be mindful of how they balance their time and energy.

Number 8 energy is closely linked with the astrological signs of Capricorn and Aquarius and the planet Saturn.

Sun Number 9

Number 9 energy is sympathetic, philosophical and extremely open minded. Number 9 is driven to teach, heal and get involved in humanitarian pursuits.

If Number 7 symbolises the Divine Intelligence and Number 8 symbolises the Mind Intelligence, Number 9 represents both of these intelligences combined. It represents the complete being or completion.

When not in balance, Number 9 energy can manifest as being careless, restless and moody. Number 9 energy can also suffer burn out if they don’t practice self-love and continually check back in with themselves.

Those born with the Sun Number of 9 are often here to teach or impart some wisdom onto the world. They also naturally gravitate towards learning, reading and studying the deeper philosophies on life.

In relationships, Number 9’s are givers and love to make the other person feel good and comfortable. They are also very sympathetic and in tune with other people’s emotions. They are can be emotional, so focusing on effective communication is important for Number 9.

Number 9 energy is closely linked to the astrological signs of Aries and Scorpio and the energy of Mars.

ADEANA M. SLATER: “Importance Of Self Love”

love-heart-water-splash-29150479-2

When we first arrive on Earth, we experience amnesia and lose the truth of our soul divinity.  This is for a reason since we are here to learn.  If we came in with already existing knowledge, the purpose of our current life in terms of growth and expansion would become a mute point.  The goal of each incarnation on Earth is the same.  For the soul to discover the truth in our existence that we are indeed sovereign beings, created in the likeness of Father Mother God.  We are Source creation, able to do and be anything of our heart’s deepest desires.  There are no true limitations as to what we are capable of doing, except for the societal programs that have plagued our true essence from the ability to discover our pure and authentic self.

Earth is especially difficult when we are faced with duality, the illusion of separation, and the hold that the dark entities have had, for as long as they have.  Humanity as a whole incarnated into already adverse circumstances that most souls were unable to overcome or heal from.  The majority of our childhood memories stem from abuse in some form, from the most dysfunctional and un-nurturing home environments.  These experiences serve to imprint our inner child with the feelings of being unloved, rejected, abandoned, or not being good enough.  These are the most common themes that pollute our soul energy and belief systems.  In a form of deterrence, we are also conditioned that self-love is egotistical, arrogant, or self-centered.  In addition, It has not been helpful that our World has revolved around patriarch dominance and conditional love, riddled with attachments and expectations.  You can see how all of the blocks are already stacked against us, when it comes to the mastery of self-love and discovery.

It is also a quite common theme in this particular day and age to be codependent on another.  We are unable to function without “something or someone.”  We are placing restrictions and outer conditions on love already.  When we don’t feel it for ourselves, it is becomes natural to place power in the hands of another.  Automatically the actions or reactions of another becomes “who or what” we are as individuals.  In this way, we leave the definition of who we are, into the hands of those, who most likely do not have our own interest at heart, but rather their own agenda and selfish intentions.  Without the true empowerment of self-love we are unable to clearly see the limitations placed on our growth.  Rather, we fall victim to those who wish to use manipulation, control, or seduction to contain you within their grasp of attachment.

It is of the most importance that we see and feel the necessity of self-love in order to propel us forward in this Ascension process. The reason why, is that since we are created in the likeness of God, it is through the love of self that we are able to reconnect to Source energy in order to find our way out of the darkness.  It is through the light of our own heart, that connects us to ALL THAT IS.  In this way, if we follow love in whatever form, we will always find our way out of the shadows and into the light of our utmost divinity.  How can we follow or recognize love if we do not feel it for ourself?  This my dear beloveds is what can stop us from truly moving forward.  Self-love is always discovered, treasured, and made manifest from within before it is ever made available in the outer realms of existence.  The truth of love is that we are only able to give and receive in the same magnitude that we feel for ourselves.  The more we are restricting with self love, is the less we are able to give and receive from others.  We are automatically not living to our fullest potential in this way.

It is through conscious awareness and acknowledgment which brings us to the divinity that we hold dear within our heart.  Only we hold the keys to this empowerment and ability.  Only we can truly desire and then manifest the life and love we deserve, of endless possibilities, in order to make a difference.  No outer circumstances, situations, relationships, or experiences will bring us love and joy, if we are unable to find this sacred truth within ourself first and foremost.

TANAAZ (Forever Conscious): “How to Find Your Passion in 3 Simple Steps”

find-your-passion.jpg

Struggling to find your passion? Struggling to find that one thing that lights the flame of desire deep within your gut?

Passion is that thing that gets you going. It is that feeling that fills you with purpose, motivation and dedication.

Passions can change, morph and differ in intensity, but to some extent they always remain.

If you are struggling to find your passion, the good news is that you can stop looking, because you are not going to find your passion by “looking for it”.

Your passion is already inside of you. Your passion already runs through your veins and through your heart, you just need to align with it.

This is very similar to finding your purpose. There is no need to search endlessly for your purpose, it is simply inside of you.

But how do you connect to that passion that lives within? How do you even start?

It is easy, (I promise) and once you get the hang of it, you will be feeling passionate not just about one thing, but about your entire life in general.

Step #1: Passion is Connected to What You Love to Do

To first start connecting to your passion, you have to become aware of all the things that you love to do. Chances are, all the things that you love to do are also things that you may feel a passion for.

If you are feeling disconnected from the feeling of love, it may also help to think about the things that you get absorbed in. What things can make you lose track of time? These things may also have the ability to ignite your passion.

To help cement the process, start by making a list of 100 things that you love. Force yourself to get to 100, as this will help you to truly go into the depths of your soul.

(PS. When I did this exercise, the things that I first wrote on my list and the last few things that I wrote on my list felt the best, so aim to get to 100!)

Step #2: Be Proactive 

Once you have narrowed in on the things that you love to do, it is time to go out there and actually do them! Take a class, join a workshop and get involved in the things that you enjoy doing.

From this, you will start to see your passions take shape and the rest will fall into place. More often than not, when you put yourself in the right vibration and mindset, your passion will just flow from inside of you freely and deeply. (No more work required from you!)

If you are still feeling stuck, get creative. Simply take the plunge and sign up for a random workshop- who knows where it may lead you?

The bottom line with this is that for your passion to be expressed from within, you have to actually get active and do something.

Step #3: Work on Feeling Passionate Everyday 

In order to connect with that inner flame, you have to work on igniting it every single day. Even when pursuing your passion it is not going to feel like rainbows and butterflies all the time, so you have to work out a way to find passion in the little things everyday.

When you do this, it is also going to help you attract more and more passion into your life so your entire life feels led with passion.

There are a few ways that you can do this-

  1. Do several things that you like or enjoy doing everyday
  2. Make it a point to express gratitude and connect with the smaller passionate moments in your life (ie. a kiss, a blooming flower, a laugh… all of these things can stir passion)
  3. Get your body moving- when you can get energy flowing through your body it helps to keep your inner flame alive.

And yes, you can have more than one passion! If this is you, work out a way to bring all your passions together in your life- they don’t all have to be part of your career, but they should be part of your life.

By following these three steps you will be well on your way to reconnecting with that passionate flame that lives inside us all.

JEFF STREET (Divine Cosmos): “Discovered Your God-Self?”

God-Self (4).jpg

Have you figured out who and what you truly are?  Have you realized that your self is not limited to your body?  There are multiple levels to your self and ultimately your highest self is Source Consciousness — you are an integral part of the One Self.

Levels of Self

Your true self is not limited to the egoic self that identifies solely with its physical body and imagines that this is all it is.  Your wider self is a multi-level composite being that exists at many non-physical levels at once.  To keep it simple let’s talk about the three most important levels.  The LESSER-SELF (or egoic self), your SOUL, and your HIGHER-SELF (over-soul).

Self and The Nature of the Universe

Before diving deeper into the nature of self, we’ll need to take a side trip to explore the fundamental nature of the universe.  One cannot understand the nature of SELF without understanding its relation to the nature of the universe.  Let’s take a whirlwind tour.

The universe is a field of energy.  And everything seen and unseen are simply patterns of energy — matter, electromagnetic radiation, etc.  And here’s the kicker, this energy field is CONSCIOUS!  In some way, not fully understood yet, consciousness is embedded in the fabric of the universe!  And everything is conscious to some degree; an atom, a rock, a cell, a plant, an animal, a human.  Of course current mainstream science isn’t aware of this, but hey, there’s a lot of stuff they have figured out yet.  They’ve been ignoring or ridiculing the work of a small group of free thinking scientists, around the world, that have been digging deeper into this for the past twenty years or so.  If you are skeptical about this and want to read a detailed account of what leading edge science has uncovered about the energetic field and consciousness check out the book The Field: The Quest for the Secret Force of the Universe.

The universe is intelligent and aware.  It is essentially a mind, a being — one being.  Many terms have be used for this one being; God, supreme being, source consciousness, etc.  The term that I prefer to use is “Universe” with a capital U.  Henceforth this is the term I will use when referring to the one universal being.  And here’s the mind-blowing part, everything is a manifestation of the thoughts of this one being.  There two ways to think about this; (1) Everything is CREATED by its thoughts or, (2) Everything IS its thoughts.  The difference is a fine point that probably isn’t important to this discussion.  Just to be clear, by “everything” I mean ALL THAT IS; energy, matter, stars, planets, etc.  And guess what? That includes US too!

This brings us back to the idea of SELFHOOD.  In a sense, the Universe is ONE SELF.  But here’s where it starts to get very interesting, apparently it decided that it wanted to experience “manyness” instead of “oneness”.  Why it wanted this is hard to say, maybe it was lonely, who knows.  So it created OTHER selves.  And because it is ALL THERE IS, the only way it could do this is by creating SUB-SELVES.  It couldn’t create other selves OUTSIDE of itself because it is ALL THAT IS, hence they must be WITHIN itself.

When it created each sub-self it did so with a slightly different mix of its own qualities.  This way they each would be different and unique.  Presumably it did this because it’s more interesting than making a bunch of exact copies of itself.  A bunch of little clones of oneself might be kind of boring or maybe even annoying.  In addition, each sub-self has its own point of awareness and local memory.  In effect, each sub-self is fully individualized.  Another way of thinking about this is as threads of consciousness — it created many threads of its consciousness each with its own point of awareness and memory.  And guess what?  This is where you and I come in — we are those threads, we are those sub-selves.

And all those points of awareness that are US are actually its points of awareness!  Yes, consciousness can do this.  It can have multiple points of awareness.  The Universe is experiencing through us!  That’s the whole point.  The Universe does not want to WATCH “manyness”, it wants to directly EXPERIENCE “manyness”.  The Universe is having a massively parallel experience through us! In effect, the Universe is SELF-ACTUALIZING through us!

 

You are not IN the universe, you ARE the universe, an intrinsic part of it.  Ultimately you are not a person, but a focal point where the universe is becoming conscious of itself.

—Eckhart Tolle

 

Let’s review…

  • The universe is an energy field and this field is conscious.
  • The universe is one mind, one being.
  • We are all sub-beings of that one being.
  • Oh by the way, as far we can tell, the universe is infinite and eternal.

So IF the universe is an energy being THEN that makes us energy beings too! And IF the universe is eternal THEN that makes us eternal too!

YOU ARE AN ETERNAL ENERGY BEING … did you know that?  Why then do we have physical bodies and DIE you might ask?  Good question, and thanks for asking because this gets to the heart of the matter regarding SELF and LEVELS OF SELF.

Your True Self, Your Higher Self, and Your Soul

Your TRUE SELF is that eternal non-physical being we’ve been talking about.  We’ll call this your HIGHER-SELF, and it is a thread of source consciousness.  From Sources perspective your higher-self if one of it’s many sub-selves.  And guess what your higher-self decided to do?  It decided to create some sub-selves of its own, one of which you call your SOUL.

Your soul is a thread of your higher-self’s consciousness.  Your higher-self created a bunch of souls (including yours) each with a unique mixture of traits. And each one of these souls is connected to a physical body and having a physical life.  Your higher-self does this so it can experience many scenarios and learn and grow spiritually. Your body is a vehicle for your soul, and your soul is a vehicle of experience for your higher-self.  Your higher-self is experiencing everything you are experiencing, and everything that each of it’s other souls (and their bodies) are experiencing.  Your higher-self is the sum of all its sub-selves experiences.  This allows it to spiritually evolve faster.

The universe (and us) decided that it would be interesting and formative to create physical worlds and physical bodies and for us to play in.  One of these physical worlds is EARTH.  Our higher-self creates our soul and and your sould binds to a physical body (incarnates) because it provides a delicious experience and an immense learning/growth opportunity. The whole point of this “game of life” is growth and self-mastery. Hence, it is sometimes referred to as the “school of life”.

You (your soul) CHOOSE to incarnate and participate in the earth game knowing full well the challenges and the rewards.  To explore more deeply why your soul choose to particpate in the earth experience check out What’s the Point of Life? Why are We Here?  The earth game is a highly engaging, demanding, and immersive experience.  A part of the fun of the game is that you lose yourself in it.  You forget who you really are, and why you are here.  But eventually you “wake up” to the fact that you are indeed in a “game” and this realization is very exciting indeed.  After that you begin playing the game “consciously” — you know you are in a game, and you start to figure out what the rules are.  This allows you to start playing the game on a whole new level.  And you begin to realize you have far more control over your experience and outcomes than you ever imagined.  For more information on how the game of life works, and how to become a master player, check out the book Living the Law of One: The Choice.

The YOU that is here on earth right now is multi-dimensional being.  Your soul is an aspect of a higher-self which exists in some other energetic plane of reality and is connected energetically to your physical mind/body.  Through this connection your soul, and the higher-self that created it, is experiencing everything that you are experiencing.  It is often said the we are 3 part beings; mind/body/spirit — but the spirit part of you is actually three parts as well; soul/higher-self/source.

From the perspective of your soul, your physical mind/body is your LESSER-SELF.  From the perspective of your physical mind/body the three levels of your eternal non-physical consciousness and beingness are its HIGHER-SELF.

The three level model that I’ve presented here is actually a simplification, there are many more levels of self than this.  For a deeper exploration of this check out my article The Multidimensional Self

Let’s review…

  • You are eternal non-physical being that’s having a physical experience!
  • Your soul is an aspect of a higher level of consciouness which is an aspect of source consciouness.
  • Your soul is bound energetically to your physical mind/body
  • Your higher-self and source are experiencing everything you are physically experiencing.

Your Lesser Self

Many people only know their self as their identification with their body, their gender, their job, their possessions, and the thoughts and emotions churning away in their egoic mind.  This is your LESSER-SELF.  This self lives in fear of being less than others and having less than others.  This leads to competition, conflict, greed, and selfishness.  The world is full of people who only know their lesser selves, and has been for a very long time.  You can see the kind of world that this creates — your living in it.  It creates a world characterized by competition and conflict.  This is reflected throughout our history.

This is unavoidable because the world we create is a reflection of our inner-selves — our state of consciousness. To change the world for the better, we must first change ourselves. Lasting change in the world is impossible otherwise.

 

Be the change that you wish to see in the world.
—Mahatma Gandhi

 

Normally your higher-self would have some degree of influence over your thoughts and behavior but the earth experience is so intense and deeply immersive that we get lost in it.  Our egoic minds are so attached to the reality of the game, and our thoughts are churning so furiously that we cannot hear our higher-self.  We do not realize that we chose to be in this game, that it is indeed a game — we are completely lost in the game and completely wrapped up in the drama.  Most of us will not wake up to our true self in this round of the game (this lifetime), and when we die, and become our true self again, we may be quite surprised and dismayed at our performance.

Your Highest Self, Your God-Self

As discussed earlier, in our whirlwind tour of the universe, your highest self is universal/source consciousness, God if that’s the term you prefer — The being that is ALL THAT IS and that we are all part of.  The being that is experiencing through all of us.  The being who created us and bestowed free will and creative power on us. Not because it wanted to do us a favor or something, but because IT is US and US is IT.  It is free and creative and so are we because we are it.  You are GOD, get over it!

This brings up a very interesting topic.  A fact that your higher-self is very aware of but your lesser-self has probably has lost sight of.  You command the same creative power as the Universe! YES REALLY! Why you ask? Because your highest-self is the Universe ding-dong! You have all the power and potential of the Universe (God) at your disposal but you just don’t realize it.  Check out Discovered Your Creatorship? Manifesting 101 to dive deeper into this subject.

If you found this article interesting you might like the The Multidimensional Self, it explores the multi-layered and massively parallel structure of your higher consciousness — higher-selves, other/parallel selves, past and future lives, and probable selves!

Enjoy,

STEPHANIE LUCAS: “Power Animals, Totem Animals, & Animal Archetypes – Oh My!”

Art-36a-700x325

We recently published a piece exploring the amazing realm of Power Animals, which brought on a few questions from readers about the difference between Power Animals and Power Totems and Animal Archetypes. It’s beautiful to see a resurgence of interest in indigenous teachings concerning the power of utilizing our animal counterparts to help guide us in connecting and realigning with our spiritual environment and oneness with Nature. So, let’s delve into these ‘differences.

What are Power Animals and How Do We ‘Run’ With Them?

You may be born with a Power Animal that you become conscious of or are guided to through a shamanic experience. They may change during your lifetime, as they are gifts of consciousness intended to guide and protect you along your journey – so they may be similar to you in traits or they may complement your aspects and assist you areas in which you need strength. Sometimes, Power Animals come to us in times of grief, pain, or in times of soul losses.

For example, if you suffer from a lack of interest or malaise, your Power Animal may return to you as a monkey to inspire curiosity and interest. If you have fallen prey to unforeseen dangers, it may be tiger that comes to assist. Under their protection it is believed that your natural instinctual self will feel safe enough to return to you and that Power Animal might then depart. Learn more about Discovering, Unleashing, and Nurturing Power Animals here.

Power Animals

Totem Animals Help Ones Self-Discovery

Totem Animals often represent ancestral lineages, lore, belief systems, and/or aspects of villages, clans, or families. Cultures around the world use totems as sources of strength – a medicine of sorts – that helps them draw and define the meaning and purpose of their soul and existence.

Many Native Americans belief that you have one Spirit Totem that will be with you for life acting as your primary guardian spirit, yet many may enter and leave your life as they are needed to aid your journey. If not through lineage, many people discover their Totem Animal simply because they have an inexplicable attraction to a particular creature or keep finding themselves in the company of a certain animal in both physical and dream realms. Intuition guides you to your totem…your Totem then guides you.

The Profound Pleasure of Animal Archetypes

According to Jungian psychology, archetypes are some of the highest developed elements of the collective unconscious that serve to interact and call upon the Divine glory of the universal web in a specific way. Many indigenous cultures consider Animal Archetypes as guides to universal organizing principles in which they ultimately orchestrate their world around. For example, to ‘shed’ old problems and reconnect with the earth, one might call on Serpent…yet, if one wants to ‘rediscover’ and enjoy the nectar of the universe – hummingbird might be called upon. Essentially, Animal Archetypes in generally may be how an entire culture chooses to define and manifest their world.

Power Animals

Use your Inner Shaman to Discover Your Power Animal or Take a fun quiz to see if they nailed your Power Animal – most importantly, use your totems and archetypes as well, just as the indigenous used them to engage with the natural world. Interact with them regularly, run wild, and unleash the beast…

ALEXA PELLEGRINI: “Find Yourself: Mantras for Self-Discovery, Freedom and Joy”

Header-32-700x325

Our world is constantly evolving and constantly demanding that we, as a society and as individuals, evolve with it. Finding love and living an authentic lifestyle have become secondary to achieving professional success and financial security. Many of us become so immersed in our daily routines that over time, we lose touch with ourselves and our dreams.

In order to heal, we must understand that drive, ambition and materialism can only take us so far before we suffer under the weight of emptiness, regardless of how successful we are by society’s standards.  Even after achieving our goals, we may feel unsatisfied and continue to crave validation or material comforts to quiet an inner lack of self-acceptance and love. Where, then, can happiness be found?

As you embark on the soul’s journey to enlightenment, you will discover the greatest success you can attain is connecting with your higher self and integrating love into your life. ‘Happiness’ is not derived from the material, nor is it attainable only to a select few. Finding happiness is simple: when we release our obsessions over attaining the ‘perfect’ success and material security, we free our hearts and move closer to experiencing an authentic, joyful existence.

Find yourself in a chaotic, apathetic world

Why Recite Mantras? Mantras Guide Us to Love

By accessing the power of speech through mantras, you can re-frame your thinking to purify negativity with love. Mantras are simple yet powerful phrases that are continuously recited in order to provide a healing, stabilizing effect on the mind. The repetitious quality of mantras yield the potential to open doors to achieving love, happiness and meaningful accomplishments.

Anxiety, perfectionism, guilt and pessimism are common roadblocks to finding freedom from the ‘rat race’. The following mantras offers solutions to overcoming these barriers. Ideally, sit in a serene space and repeat each desired mantra at your preferred pace. Slow pacing will calm the heart and reduce anxiety. Fast pacing will provide an intense, regenerative effect that will increase your pulse and breathing; be aware of your energy levels during fast recitation.

Reciting mantras allows for self-acceptance and inner peace

1. Everything ends.

When you are overwhelmed by anxiety or believe you are ‘stuck’ in a situation, you must remember that everything ends. Life is composed of cycles; every negative cycle must occur for a positive cycle to begin. Even our most frustrating, terrible cycles will come to an end. A difficult situation is not a permanent barrier to any kind of happiness.

2: I am enough.

Perfectionism is a major roadblock to incorporating love and happiness into your life. Take a moment each day to remind yourself that you are enough. Who has told you that you are ‘not good enough’? Will punishing yourself bring love and prosperity? As you recite this mantra, look at yourself in the mirror–be your own best supporter. This mantra should be repeated to counteract negative self-talk.

3: My life is my own.

This is particularly helpful for those who feel obligated to take on the responsibilities of others, and for those who feel guilty for having their own needs. Only by honoring your true desires without being restricted by the unrealistic expectations of others will you ever truly find happiness. Every being is entitled to follow his unique path — excessive self-sacrifice will only create a harmful imbalance in your life and the lives of others.

4: Let love be my guide.

There is nothing as holistic and cleansing as integrating love as a guiding energy into your life. Give into the divine will of the Universe by releasing all negative thinking; when your mind and heart have opened, you will see joy unfold before your eyes. As you recite this mantra, imagine a warm, pink light wrapping around your body like a blanket, drawing out all darkness from your auric field.

TANAAZ (Forever Conscious): “Your Inner Vs. Higher Purpose”

higher purpose

Are you struggling to answer – What is my purpose?

Your purpose is all around you, lives in you, breathes through you and dances alongside you. All you have to do is allow it to guide and show you the way.

I believe we have both a higher purpose and an inner purpose.

Inner Purpose

Your inner purpose is the stuff you live and breathe every day. It is your energy, it is your vision, your voice and your actions. It holds all the things that your energy has come here to achieve on a day to day level.

Your inner purpose is expressed through-

  • The family you were born into
  • The body you were born with
  • The circumstances that surround you
  • Your natural talents, passions and gifts
  • Your karma

Your inner purpose is very much in your hands, and it is up to you to direct the flow of its energy.

It can never truly be off track, because everything that you create in your life is part of your inner purpose. There is no wrong turn, no wrong move, everything that flows from you is meant to be part of your inner purpose.

Your inner purpose may be hard to feel or determine. It is something that only becomes real once you tune into it. Once you realise that your purpose is all around you and flows from within, you will start to feel it unfolding in your life.

Your inner purpose is essentially everything that you are, because you are perfect just as you are. You need not do anything to acquire your inner purpose because everything you are doing is already your inner purpose.

Through just living, breathing, walking and thinking you are fulfilling your inner purpose.

Higher Purpose

Your higher purpose is the mission that your soul was sent here to achieve. It is determined before you come into your physical body and is the ultimate goal of your soul.

Your higher purpose is written on your soul contract and is the over-arching force of your life. When you start tapping into your higher purpose, you join in the flow and rhythm of life.

Essentially we achieve our higher purpose through our inner purpose. In many ways, it is like the higher purpose feeds the inner purpose. When you can align the two, that is when the magic really happens.

What your higher purpose is cannot really be described in words. Words go beyond your higher purpose, however I believe that there are three main higher purposes.

(There maybe be more than just three core higher purposes, but these are the ones that have been revealed to me on my journey.)

The 3 Higher Purposes:

  1. To Heal
  2. To Deliver a Message
  3. To Bring Revolution

These higher purposes do not dictate the type of career or lifestyle that you will have (that is your inner purpose).

A criminal can be a healer, a musician can deliver a message and a bank manager can bring revolution. There are no rules with how your higher purpose can be delivered into the world.

Your higher purpose is what your soul has come here to achieve and your inner purpose dictates how that higher purpose is presented to the world.

Those who have come to heal are here to spread compassion, peace, health, nourishment and care for all living things, including the planet.

Those who have to deliver a message are here to unlock the wisdom of their heart in order to teach, guide or bring information into the world.

Those who have come to bring revolution are here to change things, uproot things and bring about a new idea or a new way of doing things.

All these higher purposes may be interrelated in some way, as we are all here to work together as humans on this planet. Ultimately, our souls are here to spread love and our higher purpose is how we achieve that.

Your higher purpose is often revealed to you when you start following your bliss and tune into who you really are. In fact, all it takes for you to realise your higher purpose is to be your true, authentic self.

“Don’t worry about trying to find your life purpose. Instead, start by acting on the small things that excite you each day. These are the threads that will connect you to your path, passion and purpose in life.”- Ruben Chavez
