My life became chaotic this past month.  It’s finally calming down now.  I’ve been trying to figure out the meaning behind it all, and the beautiful thing is — there isn’t simply one meaning.  I can look at this craziness from different perspectives.

From one perspective — I created this chaos, and probable because I enjoy it.  My metaphysics teacher told me this, and I agreed with her.  “Create with purpose!” she told me.  “If your life is full of purposeful activity, you will have no need for all of this craziness.”  I am indeed a creator.  I would like my creations to be a little less stressful, indeed. . .

From another view, the universe is trying to teach me some lessons.  Often when I try to micromanage parts of my existence, things completely unravel.  I then question: “Is all of my work for naught?”  Well, yes.  Because the purpose of my existence is not to force my life to fit into a neat little box.  I’m to be a creator! An explorer! A student of life! A spiritual teacher!  It seems the universe is warning me that my priorities are all out of whack.  I’m too focused on my environment, on what is outside of me.  I think I’m finally listening, universe!

So, here I sit, in the calm after the storm, looking out into the horizon.  No matter what storm hits this place, I must keep a cool interior.

In the School of Metaphysics we study ourselves.  I am quite a study!  Recently I’ve become interested in my highs and lows.  I laughingly attribute the duality to my Gemini moon, but I’m curious about it.  How can I go so quickly from such a soaring high to such a deep low?  I know that I have immense potential as a creator, and I would like to understand my ebbs and flows a little better,  to ride the waves — instead of trying to tread water and then flailing in the extremes.  I’m looking forward to receiving my Creative MInd report when I attend the Genius Code Spiritual Focus session next month in Windyville.  I hope it shines more light on this.  To be continued. . .

Do you experience something similar?

Just Watch :-)

So much going on with me right now.  (All good things!  A lot of learning!)  Meanwhile — in the process of assimilating everything — I’ve come across this perfectly timed video.  It’s too good not to share it with all of you — my soul leaps with inspiration and joy!   Prepare to be wowed!  Especially by the second half!

And then read this.  It matches perfectly:

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, ‘Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?’ Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
― Marianne Williamson, A Return to Love: Reflections on the Principles of “A Course in Miracles”

Elevate Your Thoughts!

ID-10033065

I have been told that I am powerful.  I know it to be true.  There is a power within all of us — and we are the creators of our lives!  Sometimes it’s easier to see the power of our negativity than our positive influence.  I’ve had some dark thoughts circulating recently, and I can actually feel the heaviness of them.  I feel them weighing me down.  Sometimes I can feel them darkening a space.  I resolved today to create the perpetual intention of love.  No matter what I’m doing, taking activity, speaking, teaching — whatever! — everything will have love behind it.  One of our activities during the workshop this past weekend was setting a goal of something to give that day, that week, that month, that year, etc.  For each spot, I put: LIGHT!  I’ve been projecting light.  Today I did it a few times throughout the day, to my students, to the world, and to those I knew I’d be interacting with.  It really does work.  It was a beautiful, connected day.

I have some pretty deeply entrenched “negative” thought patterns that I don’t want anymore.  I’m beginning to see the possibilities with optimism, excitement, and expectation. Wonderful things really do come to those who believe!  So, I’m going to catch those worries, those doubts, those FEARS and replace them with trust, faith, and love.

What are you giving this week? <3

Activity!

ID-10044017

Goal + Purpose + ACTIVITY = SUCCESS (from lessons of the School of Metaphysics)

Today I came to the conclusion that I need to take more activity.  In one of my intuitive reports I asked for insight about “tolerance,” and it said to overcome any tendency toward procrastination.  I’m beginning to see it in my work, and I think I’ve always suspected this — I need to keep moving!  If I’m in a rut, get moving!  If I don’t know what to do — get moving!  If I’m feeling down — get moving!  If I’m doing great — keep moving!  Activity, activity, activity.  That’s supposed to be an easy thing for virgos (still have last week’s workshop and lecture on the brain!)  So, it’s time to get on it!

Today I was thinking about something I learned recently about pride and shame.  It always amazes me how everything is connected.  One of the students from the School of Metaphysics was talking about the emotional doorways when we were eating lunch at the “Your 12 Sacred Relationships” workshop in Countryside.  One of the other students had been talking about leos and pride, and this student spoke about how shame is on the opposite end of pride.  Humility is in the middle.  If someone has an inclination toward pride, this person will also experience shame at some point.  The goal is to return to balance, to be in humility.

Yesterday my hackles were raised.  I became angry.  My thoughts became dark and vengeful and tantrum-like.  This was hard for me as I was experiencing this because I have a lot more knowledge now.   I knew what was going on.  I knew how strong my ego was clinging to pride and to outdated modes of thinking.  I also knew that thought is energy and can be destructive as much as creative.  Have you ever experienced having a dark moment, and then “everything goes wrong”?  This was happening to me, too, and I knew I was attracting it.  Bad traffic.  Bumping my head.  Things not working properly.  I knew at least one of the lessons I had missed.  And I knew it was going to come back.  And I hated this.  And the emotions continued.

It’s not great to go to bed unsettled, unresolved.  But life goes on.  Today is a new day.  I’m better able to reflect.  I have indeed been chipping away at my life lessons.  I will continue.  I am reminded from the workshop yesterday that virgos tend to get intensely focused on individual things and believe the world is ending if things aren’t going right.  So far the world is not ending.  Today is a good day.  I also felt ashamed of some of my reactions yesterday.  And I remembered a good friend who had experienced similar pride and shame.  I now have more compassion for him.  And remembering him, I’m able to move a little better through mine.  This morning I repeated to myself: “I forgive myself.”  “I forgive others.”  “I forgive myself.”  “I forgive others. . . .”  I’m remembering that every part of me IS me.  It is not all of me, but it is an aspect of me, and I may never be my “best” me  — or True Self — all of the time.  And that’s ok.  Life goes on.  More things make sense.  More lessons are learned.  Things always work out.

ID-100144459I’m reading Psychic Intelligence: Tune In and Discover the Power of Your Intuition by Terry & Linda Jamison.  The book includes an activity to practice seeing auras and descriptions of what the auras represent.  The aura is your outer energy field, extending beyond your physical body.

Think about what thoughts and emotions you’ve expressed today.  What color is your aura?

Here’s a snippet of each color to get you started:

Red: strength, physical and sexual energy, passion, courage

Orange: opportunity, creativity, organization, adaptability, and caring for others

Yellow: vitality, intellect, prosperity, playfulness, optimism, communication

Green: growth, change, healing, prosperity

Blue: peace, tranquility, healing, caring for others, compassion, verbal communication

Purple: passion, spirituality, psychic power, clairvoyance

White: protection, spirituality, innocence, purity

Brown: stability, grounding, practicality

Silver: Clarity of purpose

Gold: spiritual energy, inspiration

I’m thinking a little red or silver today.  Can’t see it yet.  How about you?
