JAMYE PRICE (Weekly LightBlast): “The Name of Love”

Blessed Being, do you recognize the profound Love that you are? Do you recognize how special and unique you are to Life? Do you recognize how much Life Loves you?

It is unconditional, infinite, and eternal. Just as you are.

Being human is a unique experience within Life. Your path is to adapt Life to you, whereas many other aspects of Life are more resonant to adapt. This is overly simplified, and therefore only part of the whole story. Yet this shaping of Life is your path.

You offer harmony to chaos, and chaos offers opportunity to you.

The power to adapt life troubles some because they observe how life on Earth has been shaped by greed, egoic power, and disregard for the sanctity of life.

It is frightening because it means that you must risk coming out of the safety of your shell, and letting your seed of compassion root deeper into the depths for the strength to reach higher toward the Light.

Everyone around you is interacting from a place of Love, whether you recognize it in the moment or not.

Perhaps in one moment, it is an easy and wonderful reflection of your highest hopes for life. Maybe it’s a different way of Love that makes you uncomfortable. It may be in opposition to you, causing you to fear it, resist it, or push against it. Perhaps another is reflecting an immature aspect of self-preservation that causes harm in a moment.

Yet each being, and indeed all aspects of Life, are deeply connected to Love and interacting from a resonance within the full spectrum of Love, even what seems like its opposite.

Where you are in that spectrum determines your experience.

Your current time calls for your empowerment to hold your boundaries of Love so that your resonance stays strong, maintaining a powerful vibration that interacts with humanity—affecting the vibration of life on Earth.

The Name of Love?

You see it all around you.

One is called human, one tree, one flower, one challenge, one moment.

Recognize the Love, the sacredness of each, and you recognize Love amidst all Life.

Your awareness gives Love strength, nourishing it to grow.

As we sit to Blast The Name of Love, we are recognizing that every aspect of separation is another name for Love. We are seeing the sacred in all expressions, even those that call us to greater strength through opposition in a moment.

We are clarifying our desires and holding our bond of Love strongly within, as the human experience touches our unique vibration. We are becoming strong enough to sway with the winds of change while rooted deep in supportive Love. We are compassion in human form, echoing that I am into future form as humanity transforms. Blast on!

ALEXANDER PAPAGEORGHIOU: “How To Be A REAL Man In 5D — The New Masculinity”

“In this new age we speak of truth, of the veil lifting and whatever is being left is what was always there. Whatever man one is today, and I speak as a man who has gone full circle on this issue, he was once a boy, he cried, he feared, and he was comforted by a woman who shielded him from harm, who loved him, and taught him she would be there if he ever needed her, his mother. That same boy never went away. He lives in every man.”

~Alexander Papageorghiou

 

Throughout our lives in the Third Dimension, we have gotten to know a monosyllabic, rugged, brutal, and often cold side of masculinity which has stayed engraved in us. It has become synonymous with our heroes, on the silver screen, in sports, and in our personal lives. 3D Man has been extolled for, or expected to be strong, unwavering, in control and able to deal with any situation. Emotions have been branded as something that must be totally internalized. Showing them has become equitable with weakness and femininity.

Over the years this notion has become engraved in our psyches, whether we like to accept it or not, and thus become as real as we have allowed to be. This perception was manufactured by the society of that time and we have succumbed to this false ideology. We can see it the world over, the mere notion that men are a certain way and women must be a certain way, dictated by gender roles, themselves a fabrication of the 3D male ego. Unfortunately for this old energy, the world has changed, a paradigm shift has occurred, and it now finds itself obsolete, grasping for its last breath.

Our Gender roles are morphing with the Ascension, the judgement, the pressure to be a certain way and the total lie that all this is, is being revealed more day after day. The Male EGO from 3D is being seen as more and more juvenile in its desire to control, rule and avoid accepting its own faults.

The truth is simple and unveiled in 5D. All beings on this planet have emotions, they all experience sadness, love, loneliness. The notion that a real man has to be above all that is the notion that he must be inhuman, since all these things are exactly what makes us human. All these emotions are synonymous with weakness in this faulty mindset, emotions are feminine and femininity, in a man’s eyes, takes a negative connotation. Overall, the 3D Male EGO has been very unevolved and simplistic for the last 5000 years, it couldn’t envision the truth, that emotion is strength, love is strength, and honesty with oneself, the willingness to address the darkest parts of our psyche and to face the real pain, that is the truest form of strength that can exist. The 3D strength exists only in the most superficial of ways and will erode at the first sight of deep emotional upset. In that sense, women immediately have the benefit, the conviviality, the sisterhood, and they do not fear that ever-pervasive word which all men run from at one point or another: LOVE.

In this new age we speak of truth, of the veil lifting and whatever is being left is what was always there. Whatever man one is today, and I speak as a man who has gone full circle on this issue, he was once a boy, he cried, he feared, and he was comforted by a woman who shielded him from harm, who loved him, and taught him she would be there if he ever needed her, his mother. That same boy never went away. He lives in every man. How the male ego, before the Ascension, created and accepted that sentiment, love, and femininity were suddenly a weakness is a mystery, the same energy that brought them into this world, raised them and safeguarded them for so many years.

In every man lives a woman and in every woman lives a man. We are inseparable. The Source has no gender identity. We are merely experiencing this reality in this polarity this time around. Men who wish to evolve and progress with Ascension must accept their right-brain, their femininity, the stream of love, not as a negative thing but as the salvation of their spirit, as the nutrition their heart has needed for so, so long. They need to shed this fear of being vulnerable and accept that by breaking through this they can address the issues that haunt them at their deepest core, and be liberated finally. It is infinitely more difficult to be a man who is honourable, accountable, vulnerable, loving, flexible and willing to change through introspection, than to be a hyper-masculine, bullheaded, closed-off, pugilistic archetypal MAN. There is more juvenile in than man than anything else, and the time to grow up is right now.

A man wrote this, and he has been through the full cycle. It isn’t easy, but nothing real ever is. It is the most gratifying and liberating thing he has ever done. He is now free of the pressure of being what he thought he needed to be a “man”.

Much Love,

Alexander

MATEO SOL: “5 Things Every Sensitive Man Should Know”

If you have grown up as a male in our society you’ve been taught one very clear message: emotions are a weakness, big boys don’t cry.

Being “strong” means you have to be forceful, aggressive, competitive and largely unemotional. If for some reason you are born sensitive, cooperative and compassionate, you are perceived as “weak,” “effeminate” or “weird.”

Throughout history, men have gained their identity, peer respect and self-worth through status, sexual prowess and money all of which contributed to their sense of power. In a physically demanding hunter-gatherer and agricultural world, men had to be the warriors that shouldered the responsibility of providing for their families. But now as women have become more independent with our society shifting to value mental labor over physical labor, men are struggling to let go of their old warrior habits and role dynamics.

However, regardless of our external bodies and sexual orientations, we all carry differing degrees of masculine and feminine energy. Some people will carry equal amounts, others will carry more of one than of the other (which might oppose their physical bodies), as can be seen in females referred to as “tomboys” and sensitive men.

It saddens me to see so many fellow men who outright ignore their sensitivity, or are aware of it but choose to reject or hide it. Many people associate sensitivity with neuroticism or low self-esteem, and courage with “numbing the pain.”

Sensitivity and courage are not mutually exclusive. To be sensitive is to be aware of the feelings and perspectives of other people as well as your own. To be courageous means to be completely aware and to feel fear yet to still fight for what you feel is right or what you want.

In fact sensitivity and courage can compliment each other; the greater your sensitivity and fear is, the greater your courage has to be to fight through it.

In psychology, Carl Jung was aware of the differences between masculine and feminine energy, and divided them into his Anima and Animus Archetypes. Personally, I’ve found that by embracing my sensitivity as a male and using it alongside my logic and courage, I have become a much wholer human being. In the end, to be intelligent is useless unless you can combine it with sensitivity. When intelligence is filtered through sensitivity, it becomes wisdom.

5 Things Every Sensitive Man Should Know

Here are some vital lessons I’ve learned as a sensitive man that I want to pass on:

1. Sensitivity Helps You to Grow Deeper Connections

When a man is capable of transforming his insecurity about being sensitive into something empowering, it can allow him to create deeper connections with others. For instance, I’ve found that when I go beyond simply sharing factual information and opinions with my male friends, I see a whole new side to them which is more meaningful and creates a deeper long-term bond.

2. Sensitivity Encourages Emotional Maturity

I feel that the evolution of men will be one towards a balance of strength and sensitivity. One of the biggest struggles for men in relationships is to openly express their emotions or show vulnerability. This emotional distancing is done to display “strength,” but quite often the more sensitive female lover perceives this as ambivalence, being “unavailable” or even a phobia towards commitment. To be able to give love, show love and receive love freely is incredibly attractive.

3. Sensitivity Makes You More Body-Conscious

Sensual awareness is not limited to sex (although it does make you a better lover), but rather, it extends to the body as well. The greater your sensitivity is to your body and its senses, the more you’ll learn about yourself, the better you’ll be able to take care of yourself, and the healthier you’ll feel. However, I’ve observed that often many sensitive male students of mine have tried to drown their emotions out with food as an unconscious buffer.

As a sensitive man, I’ve discovered a variety of foods that I can feel my body quickly rejects by making me feel subtly ill. I’ve also learned that having long hair not only allows me to express my Anima externally, but it also serves as an extension of my nervous system amplifying my empathic senses. It’s no surprise that the Incas, Mayas, the Samurai and the Native Americans were aware of this (the latter using their hair almost like “antennae.”)

4. Sensitivity Allows You to Become More Creative

Creativity is not the result of logical empirical deduction, it is the child of playfulness and sensitivity. Creativity is born in the right side of the brain instead of the left.

To be a painter, writer, musician, actor, photographer or anything creative requires a sensitivity towards beauty and emotion.

5. Sensitivity Helps You to Grow Spiritually

A thirst for wisdom and truth can only come to those who possess a spiritual sensitivity. To strive toward a better society and the peace of man demands an immense amount of courage to stand up against the status quo and a great spiritual sensitivity to question it.

Jesus, Buddha, the Dalai Lama, Mahatma Gandhi, and Martin Luther King Jr. were all figures who possessed this quality to speak the truth and question cultural morality, virtue and justice. Many people who have embraced their sensitivity will know that they are often the ones whom their friends come to, to ask for counsel and advice.

How to Embrace Your Sensitivity

In our society men are rarely taught how to express their feelings, and so it can be very difficult to know where or how to begin. In fact, if you are like most men, you’ll find it difficult to even become aware of what you’re feeling in the first place, e.g. how the mood of your boss may be affecting you, or how the stress from your busy schedule is making you short-tempered. And when someone asks how you are, you are so disconnected from your emotions that you’ll resort to the habitual “I’m fine,” making it harder for anyone to provide any support.

Ignoring feelings won’t making them disappear though, in fact, the more we ignore our feelings the larger they’ll grow. I’ve often seen men who appear to be well and calm before they burst out in an explosion of anger or rage when something bad happens. It’s often these very same men who become isolated and depressed due to their tendency to avoid and limit their social contact to avoid emotional vulnerability.

How do we embrace our sensitivity? Recognizing and accepting ourselves as sensitive men is the first step. No matter what “macho” ideals you’ve been taught, sensitivity is a gift, not a weakness. To be more empathetic and to be able to appreciate art, music and beauty, is a blessing. While burying our feelings is certainly easier, acknowledging our feelings helps us to empower ourselves which requires much more courage, and is a lot more rewarding. Can you imagine how many wars and ecological forms of destruction could have been avoided if we all cultivated greater sensitivity?

The next step is to examine your feelings about sensitivity. Is it a “weakness” or some kind of illness to you? You’ll have to change the core beliefs you hold about masculine sensitivity in order to accept it. Only after this can you integrate aspects of your sensitivity into your daily life. You can do this by changing your old habits of ignoring or hiding your sensitivity and instead decide to slowly process through them, expressing them to yourself and your trusted loved ones.

It takes time and effort, but changing our personal paradigms is essential in order to embrace our own sense of personal power. It’s time to change this outdated male ideal of aggressiveness, thick-skin and emotional retardation. By empowering sensitive men with self-confidence, we’ll all contribute to a more peaceful, balanced and healthy planet.

Once you become aware of your feelings and have learned to express them, you’ll begin drawing loving people into your life, you’ll be able to help others through their own problems, and you’ll be able to feel as though every part of you is living life to the fullest.

ERIC RAINES: “Let’s talk for a minute about the parasitic construct…”

Let’s talk for a minute about the parasitic construct. The reason the world is the way that it is…

Most people not only do not have any idea such a thing even exists, those that have realized, often times do not even know what the basics are about.

Let’s say for instance, how do the etheric entities actually detect humans? How do they tap into our physical bodies and then manipulate them to block the flow, increase negative emotional resonance, damage meridians and organs as well as cause disease?

We look at our world as a solid, 3 dimensional construct, but this could not be further from the truth if you are any type of energetic consciousness, positive or negatively oriented.

If you were standing in line at a store 15 feet from someone you have never met, have no connection to, and are actively not making a connection to, something attached to you would have no idea whatsoever that person even exists. It would never “see” them to begin with.

In that same fashion, if you were thinking about your best friend, or anyone that you have a connection to, either negative or positive, the entity would then be able to “see” that person, regardless whether they are physically right next to you, or on the other side of the planet.

These entities are an incredibly dense, solid energetic object inside of a completely malleable, liquid reality. Not only do they not understand the concepts of 3 dimensional space, they need direct, solid lines of corrupted, stagnant and blocked energy to even exist inside of.

Now, that being said, the reason they are even here is because they need our negatively oriented emotional resonance. Energetically speaking, they need your Vital Life force weak and blocked, unable to flush pain, stagnancy or rotten chi through the body. This is the “hardness” that they need to “root” into. Without this blockage, it is like they are grabbing fistfuls of water. They have no way to even influence our reality unless there is this “hardness” to base their efforts to shut down light, increase dark emotional resonance, and block up the pulmonary/lymphatic systems.

Every time we do not actively engage in redirecting the negative emotions and thought loops in the body created by outside influences, we are slowing down our flow.

Joy, happiness, excitement, love, friendship, hope….everytime you feel these emotions, the internal world lights up. It becomes open, it feels clean and good. There is a natural smile on the face. Fear, anger, jealousy, shame, guilt, rage….every time you feel these emotions, the internal world shuts down. It becomes constricted, tight…painful, and there is a natural frown on the face.

This internal blockage that can easily be felt is the emotional resonance that is being fed upon.

Now let’s talk about how they move from person to person.

Have you ever had an event, a fight, a point in time that when you look back and remember, you get extremely angry, or fearful, or guilty?

These are emotional poisons that we actively engage in building into bigger and bigger blockages, but we build these through black magic, either directed at others, or ourselves.

When you think about someone you have “bad blood” with, just the act of thinking about that person means you are making an energetic connection. By feeling hate, that means you are using your energy flows to push extremely heavy, dark emotional resonances at them. The more this is done, the harder and more cemented in the etheric lines of connection become. The negatively oriented parasites stoke these fires in between people all over the world, and then actively use those energetic connections to infect people and travel.

This is their superhighway.

But here is the trick. Thinking about someone with love, compassion, empathy, joy or excitement works the exact same way. It is light magic. The more we pay attention internally to recognize when we are in the midst of a “hatefest” or a “pity party”, etc… to actively disengage from these lines of thought/feeling and to redirect ourselves into healthy thoughts/feelings, we actively dissolve this net of darkness interconnecting our reality.

The revolution will not be televised. We do not need to hang the bankers, or storm congress.

The battlefield has always been the hearts and minds of mankind. It is our job to turn it into a garden….this is not a place of war. It only appears so on the outside because so many of us are at war inside.

The universe is a reflection of exactly what is broadcasted out into it. If you are carrying around rage, pain, shame, fear or guilt from years and years worth of experiences, what are you subconsciously broadcasting out to the universe 95% of the time?

Loosh is a choice. Recognize your power. You are a child of the Creator. Be worthy of it.

From my heart to yours ❤
-Eric

AWAKENING 5D HEALING: “Start Your Journey”

We are all experiencing a great shakedown of our world, inner and outer.  Cosmic intervention has triggered waves of higher frequencies pulsating through our galaxy.  Gaia has awoken from her matrix induced slumber.  She rises like a phoenix from the flames of war, pollution and destruction.

Start your journey.

Our transition to the fifth dimension has begun, some are already there.  The material plane bends and fluctuates to accommodate the increasing vacuum between those raising their frequencies and those who still sleep.  To keep the momentum going we all have a role, we can each make a difference.

Play your part.

Release the pressure.  Raise your vibrations.  Embrace the shift to higher consciousness.  Let go of persistent negative thinking. Catch yourself, retrain your brain to think positively.  Reset the algorithm of your heart from fear to love.  Face your demons, make friends with your inner child, get to know who you were before the matrix told you who to be.

Observe your world.

Avoid people and places that make you feel bad about yourself.  Spot deceit in words and actions of those too caught up with their own narrative to value you.  Set a value on yourself.  On your time.  Stop giving head space or airtime to those who hurt, neglect, abandon or abuse us.  Draw up the bridge.  Cut the cord.  Shield up.  Only those with love in their hearts for us receive our energy.

Be a rebel for love.

Convention can make us ill.  Pressure to be someone we are not, to perform duties that make us unhappy, is matrix control.  Break apart barriers between you and happiness.  See all there is to be seen.  Reset your frequency to love.

Be kind to yourself.

Decrease fear, anxiety, stress and anger with meditation, laughter, nature and mindfulness.  Accept who we are in a crazy, upside down world.  Make the changes to improve your life, your wellbeing, your circumstances, your world.  Believe in yourself and all the rest will fall into place.

Peace is possible.

 

Mantras

I share love, I receive love, I am love.

I release all that no longer serves to my highest path.

I am safe/happy/calm/energised in light and love. Namaste.

ALEXANDER PAPAGEORGHIOU: “Let Go of Your Gods and Leaders — You are the Answer”

The time of Ascension is in full glow, as we near the highest peak of energies we have been feeling and anticipating for years.  For many of us, the grounding of full 5D energies is nearing completion and we are beginning life on a completely blank slate.  At this point, we need to review our lives over the last decade or so and see how much we have learned to be self-reliant, using our intuition and our guidance to show us the way towards this new existence.  The time of leaders, gurus and figures that we relied on to show us the path is finally over.

The purpose of the Ascension process has been to reconnect us with our infinity, our light, and to enable us to become creators, in an aware, and loving manner.  We have been stripped of all the superfluous, the painful, the difficult, and the old, in order to reveal what we can easily call, the real US.  Our real energy has been unveiled and we can finally connect with it and survey our entire history from the time our soul was created to today.  We have become aware of the veils that have clouded our society for eons and the false priorities they have dealt us so that we would not take the time to ask questions and uncover the truths so adeptly hidden for so long.  These were in place so that we would not discover our own power, as that would crumble the status quo.  Finally, we connected with our spiritual guidance and were able to get messages from higher realms, to enable us to understand what the purpose of our journeys have been, collectively and individually, and what awaits us at the end of the path.

Most awakening light beings have sought out teachers and guides in the physical world in order to get the tools they needed to start creating.  Often times, these were not energetically compatible with the seekers, but rather chosen via the mind for empirical reasons, or through karmic choices.  This led many astray in the quest for information about how to awaken their own power and remember what they had decided to forget in this incarnation.

The ultimate purpose of a spiritual teacher is to pass on knowledge and elevate the people that seek their help.  No knowledge can be appropriated or owned. No teacher that is legitimately trying to spread the light can function otherwise.  Once that is done, the seeker can go on the own path and continue their journey to where their own etheric spiritual guidance wishes to take them.  Many will eventually become teachers of the knowledge and pass their own experiences onward.

Having received many clients over the years, I have seen over and over people that had unconsciously chosen to end up with teachers that were motivated by elements of EGO, control, and often to create a status for themselves as prophets and indispensable awakening factors in their clients lives.  This had defeated the entire purpose of the Ascension, of this new age of light we are entering.  True teaching and mentoring is done purely out of love, there can be no dependency on the teacher and the guide should never allow for this framework to develop in such a way.  One must always let their client leave in a more elevated, liberated state than they arrived in, and to have enabled them to understand, through proper communication with themselves, which way they should end up.

The concept of Guruism, of the prophet, and of the infallible teacher is void and over.  The era of awakened beings being their own GODS, their own source of light, through their own connection with the Creator is now, and anything that disguises itself as teaching and enlightening but does not ELEVATE and RELEASE is simply not authentic and helpful in any way.  If you recognize these traits in a teacher and feel like you are not able to move forward on your own for fear of being alone or having to release a dependency on that person, if you feel unsure of yourself but at peace when you are around these individuals, you really must explore why your empowerment is not in full glow and why you are not accepting YOURSELF AS THE ANSWER.

A legitimately loving guide serves only one purpose: to act as a messenger for the light and help reconnect you to your soul and spiritual guidance so that you may be able to channel the light through your heart on your own accord and be all that you are.  Anything less than this is misguided in motivation.

We are all fragments of the same light and are here to reconnect to ourselves, as that is all that is real.  The Source is here to guide us and we seek to be enlightened and EMPOWERED simultaneously.  We are all Creators and infinitely resourceful beings in our own light.  Let Gods and Leaders lie in the past.  Be Your Own.

Much Love,

Alexander

ALLISON ENGEL: “Have You Been Feeling The Trickster Archetype On The Prowl?”

“If the enemy remains behind closed doors in the psyche, then it can continue to show up in our experience and victimize us. Until we face these repeating patterns we cannot unblock channels of abundance and properly lay the ley lines of heaven on earth. All must heal within the self in order to transform into a power player.”

~Allison Engel

 

The trickster is the dark force/Lucifer/vampire archetype that is popping up through our consciousness again.

With the last energy blast on May the 2nd hit, we were cleared of everything that was blocking the last bits of ego suppression so that we can see how the trickster operates within. The next part of this journey as Mars goes retrograde on May 12th is Ego Ascension. This is an uplifting experience of the warrior releasing all prowess in the fight. We then get to kick back and see how we are shaming ourselves and being our own barrier to abundance.

The wicked will lose the fight this whole period, so if the trickster has you thinking that you are fighting the good fight against evil out in the ether, then you will be challenged to remain peaceful and not cast shadows on the other in your experience. You will get to see how anyone who initiates a fight will lose the battle.

The asteroid belt is full of surprises, because very little of these archetypes have been named and explored. When it comes to the psycho-social mechanisms in society, there is an auto-immune reaction within our own framework that tries to illicit feelings of excitement and grandeur in the hidden realms in the psyche. This is to counter balance the grid work that we all must do to be accountable for our own inner transformational healing.

If the enemy remains behind closed doors in the psyche, then it can continue to show up in our experience and victimize us. Until we face these repeating patterns we cannot unblock channels of abundance and properly lay the ley lines of heaven on earth. All must heal within the self in order to transform into a power player.

Our auto-pilot program around authority is that the system is evil/bad and controlling the people. This unfortunately is mislabeling the institutions that are able to provide abundance of revenues streams and if we can tune into our own inconsistencies around being a loving and powerful human we can stop the vampire clause in the system and level up our own playground of wealth and abundance. We then continue to afford what we project.

If being wealthy is “bad” then we are devaluing abundance desires within. It isn’t spiritual to be poor and sick and a victim to the authority. It is spiritual AF to take back the power grid and create huge revenues of cash for healing systems to pop up around Gaia. It can only happen if you champion through your own experience and understand that you are weak to the authority that is if you continue to think that the power of the dark has more authority than any single human. That is a dark authority within that wants to be held and honored in the space of love and nurtured back to health. Then that shadow becomes more power and something that can no longer seemingly come from outside, as you have already championed it in your own ley lines.

Each of the archetypes wants to honored and held in the space of light and release it of its densities and mental constructs that keep the individual in an auto program of melancholy or fight or fight. This way the purity is within and the system can only power forward and honor what it truly wants to experience.

The event is every day as we get surprised by our own unconscious appetites for freedom. There is no more waiting as every day is a journey through the unconscious realms in our own hero’s journey. And now we know how.

STEPHANIE LUCAS: “Self Love and Self Respect Opens Door to Empowerment”

stephanie lucas latest best.jpg

In these times of greater cosmic activity, enlightenment and self awareness, it seems that more people — particularly youth — are becoming turned off by a lack of self respect and self love in others.  Ladies showing too much skin are drawing more looks of disdain, and those once so appealing bad boys are only attractive from a distance.  Sounds great!  Problem is, there are still many out there who let ego get in the way, and we eagerly seek out love and respect before giving it to ourselves first.

Empowerment Authentication and Self Respect

It seems that many are stuck on stuck, expecting others to freely give us love and respect when we are still not aligned with our own heartfelt intentions well enough to love and respect ourselves.  Going through life in such a vicious cycle fuels hurt and chronic disappointments when things don’t work out, allowing other’s egotistical expectations and desires to be placed onto others rather than themselves.

Aligning yourself with such individuals or lacking self love and respect yourself, sets you up into that cycle of victim consciousness that gives you a desire to ‘fix’ and ‘save’ others while giving up self happiness.  Ever put your child’s, partner’s, or parent’s expectations, dreams, and ambitions ahead yours?  This is just one form of disrespecting yourself… and ultimately you allow the negativity of energy vampires to tap into your energy stream.  And honestly, should you ever have to sacrifice your heart and soul’s true desires for another person to love and respect you?

Self Love: Discover Your Own Worth and Empowerment

Those not aligned with their own true desires often demand that others do their job for them, projecting issues onto them, and seeking someone to fulfill their own egotistical needs.  Once you discover and experience your own self empowerment you can more easily grow and become your true SELF.  Only then, you can raise your vibrations and embrace your potential as a conscious co-creator or your own reality and future.

Empowerment and self love work hand in hand as you discover your higher self.  Regardless of how much you ‘love’ someone, loving yourself must always come first if you want to get yourself out of a state of chaotic unknowns and sacrifices.  When seeking self love you are forced to wash you hands of those old attitudes you learned when in the cycle while embracing you soul’s wisdom, power, and joy.

Taking Responsibility and Gaining Self Love and Respect

Whether it’s you or someone in your life that this post describes, understand there is a difference in wanting to change yourself or by helping another grow and prosper in this journey.  In every action and effort we make, the intentions must be appropriately set, as you cannot DO the work of clearing out old wounds and discovering their love for them.  Attempting to do so is essentially taking away their power — the polar opposite of the goal.

The best way we can truly help one another achieve their goal of true empowerment, self love, and self respect is to share your knowledge, reconnect with your true self, take time for periods of meditation, and be aware of the divine presence of each eternal being.

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.

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.

ALEXA PELLEGRINI: “Forgiving Your Family and Finding Empowerment”

Forgiving (2)

If there’s one thing most of us are taught during our childhood years, it’s that family is important and should be a source of joy and security in our lives. But what if your family didn’t fit the paradigm we see in movies and on television? What if your family has become a dark, well-kept secret, or a source of shame or trauma in your life? Reconciling your expectations of what family should be and the reality of what family is can be incredibly challenging for those who have come from abusive homes. As an adult child of an alcoholic, I’ve struggled intimately with how the cracked foundations of a childhood home can bleed into adulthood and make loving yourself a tremendous feat. But even in your darkest hour, it’s important to recognize that there is always hope for you to heal, to step into your own power and leave the pain of your childhood behind. All it takes is three simple steps.

Family

Step 1: Be Kind and Forgiving to Yourself. 

Adult children of damaged parents tend to be hard on themselves. I know this firsthand: for years, I struggled with crippling perfectionism, an issue that stemmed from needing to impress my parents, particularly my father, in order to gain their love and attention. Making mistakes gave me terrible anxiety, and if anything went wrong in my home I automatically blamed myself. This behavior continued well into adulthood until I realized that the only person I needed to impress to be happy was me, and that I was never to blame for my parents’ faults. And even now, I’m still struggling to put these concepts into practice on a daily basis. 

If there’s one thing adult children of dysfunctional homes need to do, it’s give themselves a break. A devastating number of us are chronic perfectionists, workaholics and masochists. It can be difficult for us to take compliments, to believe that our partners love us. Practice mindfulness by monitoring your inner dialogue every day, paying careful attention to the way you react to any slip-ups you make. Support yourself with positive self-talk, not self-destructive speech. And don’t hesitate to compliment yourself for your achievements and for simply being the amazing person you are. Lose yourself to joy, to silliness, to feelings of hard earned success. Reward yourself. You deserve it.   

Step 2: Keep Moving Forward – Don’t Look Back. 

Breaking down a dysfunctional family is like peeling back the layers of an onion: it’s arduous, it’s uncomfortable, and it’s difficult not to be brought to tears while doing it. Especially when someone else is doing the peeling, and it’s your family! This is why I quit therapy. I became tired of having therapists deconstruct the defects of my parents, flaws I was already understood all too well. I discovered that the more you obsess over the past, the more you lose focus on the beauty of the present moment.

When I reflect on the past, I do so with a non-judgmental perspective. The past cannot be changed: it can only be accepted for what it is. This concept has allowed me to dislodge the resentment I had toward my parents for taking away the normalcy of my childhood. Looking back on the past with the intention of accepting someone for who they are and leaving your expectations behind allows you to move one step closer to finding freedom from the pain others have caused you.

Step 3: Break Off Harmful Relationship Patterns That Mirror the Past. 

Adults from dysfunctional families frequently encounter situations that eerily mirror the dynamics they had with their parents. Many of us become ‘rescuers’ for damaged partners and we like to have excessive control, which sabotages the healthy relationships in our lives. Why? Adult children of alcoholics, in particular, tend to have serious issues with control and self-worth. After all, we develop self-esteem from how our parents reacted to our feelings and needs. If our parent(s) were distant, critical or failed to be our mirror, developing healthy self-esteem as an adult can be challenging. Not to mention that living in a chaotic environment can quickly create a deeply insecure person who craves control and order to feel safe.

FamilyAs we discussed, the past can’t be changed. But what you can change is your attitude toward yourself. Your self-image is the one thing you can undoubtedly control. Although long held negative beliefs you’ve had about yourself – that you’re unworthy of love because your alcoholic mother did not love you, that you’re damaged beyond repair because your narcissistic father left you – may seem too powerful to control, they can only define you and affect you if you give them permission to do so. Who told you that you’re unlovable because you had a parent who struggled with their past and also felt unlovable themselves? As an adult who has made it this far, the definition of who you are begins within you. What your parents, siblings or relatives think of you has no meaning unless you believe it has meaning. And taking the shortcomings of your parents personally will always hold you back from healing.

As your self-awareness grows and you can confidently look yourself in the eye and tell yourself that you are lovable, you’ll encounter others who believe the same — and reaffirm that you’re worth it, and always have been.
