We Can Build New Structures- Without Waiting Around For the Old Ones to Crumble Completely

We Can Build New Structures- Without Waiting Around For the Old Ones to Crumble Completely

A Message to All Regarding the Inhumanity We are Witnessing:

We must build the new in order to render the current systems obsolete.

We were never meant to be ‘ruled’ by de-humanized structures and systems, that is why they are not working and why they are breaking down.  The real need is freedom.  Sovereign freedom.  The freedom we get from being who we really are, and having the resources to do the things we really want to do, and take care of ourselves.  When we are stifled or not allowed to be our true selves, we suffer.  In some, that suffering can lead to actions they would not have taken had they had the proper love, care, and encouragement to grow into who they truly are.  This cannot be found in structures and systems, only in hearts.

Our current systems do not teach us how to heal our hurting hearts; they do not teach us how to deal with life; they do not always encourage us to be ourselves; and the systems definitely do not school us in things like understanding our conscious and  subconscious, listening to our emotions and learning from their messages, and relationships.

May we all feel the sovereign freedom in doing what we are put on this planet to do.  In whatever ways we can (even if that is only taking responsibility for working on ourselves), may we help create the new systems– Systems with heart, systems designed to encourage and honor others where they are at, wherever they are at.

Because we should all be allowed to be who we really are, so long as we do not hurt ourselves or others.

We don’t have to wait until everything crumbles in order to start to rebuild.

 

 

A Quick Look at “Will”

A Quick Look at “Will”

Free Write- Topic: The Will

Will

You can bend it, break it, and strengthen it.

It can move you forward, or keep you stuck in place.

Many use it forcefully, and try to overpower that of others.

Strengthen your will by learning that we are all part of the same universe.

Some may think they can take or use more power than they should, but this is not real power.

Surrender your will to the understanding that you are a part of the whole universe, and your individual power will strengthen in a sustainable manner.

You are powerful.

Insert yourself into the greater flow and use your will to enhance the life experience of all you are connected to, and you will thrive as well.

When Life Gets Tough, Hang on.

When Life Gets Tough, Hang on.

Today’s post is another inspired writing, where I just write what comes, without much editing or proofreading.  I hope it helps someone who may benefit from its message.

 

When the road is long and you are feeling weary

Hang on.

Change is around the corner.

 

When you feel like you’re gasping for air or that no one around you cares

Hang on.

Change is on the horizon.

 

Believe it.

Feel it.

Be it.

 

Love is always here.

Even in your darkest days.

 

Believe in the power of love to heal hearts.

Believe there are better days coming.

 

You are part of the universe.

You are everything in the world.

 

Love yourself

And you love everything.

 

Love all.

Joy is inevitable.

 

Even if you can’t see it right now.

Believe it is hidden

And it will be revealed.

You are so loved.

What Does it Really Mean to “Show Up and Do the Work,” When You’re Trying to Achieve Your Dreams?

What Does it Really Mean to “Show Up and Do the Work,” When You’re Trying to Achieve Your Dreams?

Today I’m going to write a continuation of my last blog, and start with the question that may have been left slightly unanswered: “What does it really mean to show up and do your work?”

For those of you struggling to make career, relationship, and health goals a reality, you may feel like you’ve already done so much work. You’ve taken the classes, made the plans and goals, written the press releases, gone on the dates, been a good friend, been to college, and basically “done your time.”  So why can’t you manifest that which you desire?

Well, to start with, as I mentioned in the last blog, a big part of the formula is to trust and let go, but there is another component.  This one involves your perception of the word work, and is very closely related to a major theme of my book, Holding Space- A Guide to Supporting Others While Remembering to Take Care of Yourself First.  In the book, one of the concepts I cover is the difference between masculine and feminine energies, and how each of us have and use both, no matter what our physical gender is.

In brief, masculine energy is that of: plans, structure, doing, and the concrete.  It it the energy of bringing things into form.  Again, in brief, feminine energies consist of things such as: being, tapping into the creative field, and relationships.  Here’s the trick- the feminine must be entered into before the masculine can be utilized.  This may come as a shock, because Western culture has taught the exact opposite.  What this means is that you have to do the abstract work of be-ingbefore you can begin the concrete do-ing work that is also required to bring things into existence.  And then again, after you do your work in both areas, you have to let go and trust that the Universe/God/Spirit/whatever your believe in that is bigger than you, is working to fit the pieces together and bring you what you ordered, if it is indeed for your highest good.

So remember when you are showing up and doing your work, that the work does not only entail the concrete things you learned in school as a child, or at a job as an adult.  In order to be truly whole and  truly manifest that which you desire, you have to do the deeper emotional, spiritual, and healing work required to remove any unconscious blocks to your success.  You also need to be still enough to really get to know yourself and what you truly want to manifest, what’s honoring to you, and what isn’t.  Once you’ve done both types of work,  you must again trust that what you ordered will be brought to you in its right timing.  No need to be jealous of others or upset at yourself that you’re doing something wrong.  Tune in to that which is greater than you, follow your guidance and intuition, show up and do the work, and then trust.

Godspeed everyone!

My Natural Remedies Toolkit

My Natural Remedies Toolkit

Today, in the interest of sharing more of who I am and what makes me tick, and also to share what I know with those who want the information, I blog about natural remedies.

I have been a holistic, organic girl for quite a long time.  For many years, you followed it but didn’t speak about it, for fear that you would be criticized yet again for following your own guidance and intuition rather than just consuming what was presented to you.  So I followed in silence, except for the few who may have asked me more about myself, and who I could tell would be open to such conversation.

Nowadays, things are a little bit different.  I feel that more and more people who may have been unwilling to hear about something less than mainstream, now crave anything that will actually lead them to good health and wellness.

So here is my natural remedies toolkit, used for years as my main go-to’s.

Bug repellent:  Lavender essential oil put on my hand and applied directly to the body in every place where those little buggers love to bite me.  (*Caution*- though lavender is not one of the “hot oils” and doesn’t absolutely require a carrier oil for dilution, not everyone’s skin is as agreeable to straight up lavender all over it like mine is).

Anti-itch for bug bites and stings:  Lavender essential oil (See above for my use and disclaimers)

Antiseptic for cuts and small wounds:  Tea tree oil on a cotton ball or q-tip, applied directly to the wound.  (Again, see above for cautions on essential oil use).

In summer I keep lavender and tea tree oil in my hiking/beach bag.

Nasal congestion and allergies, polluted air sinus issues, etc:  Colloidal Silver (I haven’t turned blue from using it yet, but I don’t go crazy with it either).  I use as needed, as many drops or sprays as feels appropriate.  (*Again, it is best to use even natural products with caution when you begin, and start very slow and with very little, and diluted is best.  Even still, not everyone will react wonderfully to everything).

Bacterial infections/Sinus Infections, etc:  Drops of Grapefruit Seed Extract in water or juice.  (Not pleasant tasting, you will have to chug it quickly, but worth it if it helps you). (Again, see previous disclaimers)

Dry nasal passages and headaches when flying or any other time you are in dry/stale air:  Saline nasal spray.  Spray a few drops in each nostril (have tissues handy to catch what drains back out), before you fly, and keep a small bottle and some tissues with you on the flight for times when the pressure drops suddenly and your forehead has the beginnings of a splitting headache.

Again, though these are all natural remedies, please do your due diligence and remember that all essential oils are not the same.  Do your research before you use a new one, and know that the “hot” type oils absolutely have to be diluted in a carrier oil!

Best wishes, and good holistic health to you!!

 

 

 

 

 

Why the World Needs LOVE

Why the World Needs LOVE

Here is another inspired writing from today.  No edits, just raw musings from my morning writing.  Sometimes it’s best to leave them that way, especially in blog form…

Love

Love exists in many different ways at many different hours.

Love it timeless.

Love is a power greater than any of us can imagine.

Love can right wrongs.

Love can breathe life into things that have lost their breath but still have a spark left.

How do you tap into love?

Simply embrace the feeling, and it will flow.  It will touch not only you, but everyone you come in contact with.

It can magnify bigger and bigger until it overtakes all lower energy feelings.

Love is what the world needs right now.
