Think About It Thursday: How Uncomfortable Are You?

man-304289_1280

I think it’s funny that certain subjects/ideas/quotes sometimes seem to come up for me around the same time of year.  I discovered I posted about this almost exactly 2 years ago:

Metaphysics Monday: Are You Uncomfortable Yet?

I’ve really been thinking about this again.  Do you feel comfortable?  REALLY comfortable?  If you do, that may not be a good sign!

Oftentimes discomfort comes from reaching the edge of our boundaries, from stretching farther than we ever have before.  It can feel pretty awkward — even painful!

But then, once we make it through that boundary, extend that wall, we have more space.  We are freer.  And this continues until we completely break through all of our walls, until we no longer have any limitations.

So, how comfortable do you feel now?  Is it time for a little stretch?  I’m telling you, it’s worth it!

Movie Monday: Building a Foundation for Growth

Are you working toward your vision?  Seeking growth and self-improvement?  Make sure you have a solid foundation to build the faith and trust in yourself to move forward.

What Energy Are YOU Emitting?

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?

THINK 5 (CHANGE!)

ID-100112523I received a wonderful sign from my angels last month.  I’m very into numbers, and I’ve been looking into their meanings over the last few years.

I was driving to class, and I noticed the license plate  of the car directly in front of me: “THINK 5”.  5 in Numerology is “change”.  This seemed like a pretty obvious message.  Then, I glanced at the time on the clock.  It was 5:55.  Now, the angels really had my attention!  I thought for a minute and was startled when I realized what day it was.  May 15, 2015.  5/15/15.  OK!  If there was any doubt in this synchronicity, this last sign had now cemented my belief!  “Change. . .  hmm?”  I thought.  “Ok, I am ready! ”

I thought about what that change could be.  What form would it take?  What newness would come into my life?  I waited expectantly.  It took some weeks of pondering and the assistance of my School of Metaphysics lessons (always so applicable to my current situations!) to realize I had it all backwards.  THINK CHANGE didn’t mean to watch for change.  It didn’t mean that change was going to happen to me.  THINK CHANGE mean that change would come from me.

This is affirmed by one of the books I just started reading: Angels Whisper in My Ear, a book by Kyle Gray, the Angel Whisperer.  In his Preface he says: “Angels don’t want us to rely on them, nor will they let us — they encourage us every day to realize our own power so that we can surmount our setbacks — but they will support us.”

Thought is cause.  I cause change.  We cause change.  And the angels are saying the time is now!  What are you causing in your life right now?  Are you ready to grow, young caterpillar?  Are you ready to change?

Let’s do this!

Tribute Tuesday: Spiritual Focus Sessions

I’ve just come back from back-to-back Spiritual Focus Sessions through the School of Metaphysics: Spirit of the Healer and Powers of 10.  They were amazing from start to finish.  Besides the highlight of the sessions — the in-person intuitive reports — the lessons, activities, meals, reflections, and personal interactions were eye-opening and life-changing.  I left with an open heart and a stirred soul (and a lot to process!)

Please check out the upcoming sessions, and maybe I’ll see you there 🙂 :

Tribute Tuesday: On Divine Friendship

One of my classmates asked the students at break/announcements if we had anything to share about divine friendship, as relating to our experiences through the School of Metaphysics.  I was focused on the rest of the lesson plan for the evening and did not contribute at the time.

However, I have definitely experienced divine friendship, along with every other student.  I cherish my classmates, my teacher, the director, and all of the students/teachers of the School of Metaphysics.   We ALL love each other.  Just because we are. And that is the key to the community.  We recognize every individual as a soul, as a spirit, and we honor every existence.  And we honor truth, allowing us to be every bit of who we are: the beautiful stuff about us, the stuff we don’t want to face and/or don’t know how to change, and the ideal Self that we will someday be.  And the best part is our friends will accept this, accept us, every bit of us.  That doesn’t mean we are accepted as just what we are.  It means also seeing what we intend to become and not letting us stagnate.  And neither does that mean everything is all roses and butterflies; on the contrary, some of the most uncomfortable exchanges have brought about the most growth!

As an example, today the director asked me how I was doing, and I said “Ok.”  Of course, she probed further, and I expressed my displeasure with my job.  She talked with me about the importance of having a goal and purpose for every day at work, and she told me she didn’t leave one of her jobs until she loved it.  I didn’t want to hear any of this.  My ego was negatively motivating me on this one.  I wanted to be miserable.  I was afraid of being stuck and stagnant.  But I saw the wisdom in her advice.  I knew the damage negative thinking could do — I am an expert negative thinker and visualizer! — and the angels like to warn me about it, and I knew the power of gratitude. (My sister read that when you give thanks the angels dance about you!).  Later that evening my teacher stopped by, and I shared my earlier conversation.  She liked what the director had to say and added the importance of staying focused on the image of my ideal position.  She said she’d like to check in about it once a week and assured me that what I wanted would happen.

I am grateful for all of my friends this life time.  They have loved me, encouraged me, and supported me.  Some have helped me learn my value.  Others have helped me take a deeper look at myself and what I need to change.  I believe everything happens for a reason, and I thank God for the wonderful people I’ve attracted into this lifetime.

Summary Sunday: Quickening of Soul Progression (An Introduction)

How does one blog and complete one’s homework?  By blogging about one’s homework, of course!

“How has the study and application of metaphysics quickened my soul’s progression?”

Our class was instructed to go deep with this one.  How do we know our soul’s progression?  I think — as in the case of dream interpretation — it is something we intuit.  We know this; it’s about trusting that we know it.

Today I was thinking about death because I’ve heard about 3 funerals in the last few days.  Then I had my “Ah ha”! moment: if I were to die tomorrow, how much closer would I have gotten to my life’s purpose than yesterday?  What would this last year have meant to my growth?

Growth means change.  Before change comes awareness.  I am now aware of these things about my soul:

  1. I am the Illuminator.  I am to share my wisdom with others and help them in their soul growth.
  2. I have developed a karmic pattern of giving with resentment.  I am to understand and alter this.
  3. My purpose is self-empowerment.  This is my main lesson for this lifetime.
  4. Our ideal self is the best self we can imagine for ourselves.  My ideal self is unconditionally loving.  This includes being loving toward myself.
  5. My goal is to be still and present-minded.  I can accomplish this best through the practice of concentration and meditation.

. . .  Elaboration to follow in Part II tomorrow. . . .
