Today is the first day of spring, or the spring equinox. The energy leading up to today has been exhausting to say the least. I have felt myself releasing; to which I wonder how much can really be left…..apparently a lot. I’ve felt my body, mind and soul upgrading to a new state of being and seeing. Sluggish and tried have been a way of life over the past few days, due to this upgrade. I see so many things changing and evolving within myself and within others. This is such an important time on this beautiful planet. Once we change ourselves inside, is when we can change the outside world.
What we have done to the planet, to our great mother is a disturbing reflection of how we all feel about ourselves. It’s all a reflection of how the majority feels on the inside, refusing to see the beauty that lives within us. Refusing to take care and nurture those innocent, sweet parts of ourselves. Never really satisfied or content with anyone or anything; only wanting things to make us happy and then when we have them no longer wanting them. What I don’t understand is why we think this is okay, why don’t people spend time outside anymore? How is destroying the beauty forests progress? (The world doesn’t need more houses, or more shopping malls.) Are we that ego driven to think that anything we create is more beautiful than anything mother could create? These are the kinds of things I think about. Anyways, more to the point….
Once we began to love the person within us, once we began to nurture, and take care of this beauty is when we will began to take care of our environment. If we take care of ourselves, than we will take care of nature. Everything we do is a reflection ourselves, whether we like to acknowledge that or not. When the majority steps out of the shadows and into their own light and their own power is when we will see major things changing. (Let me tell you its coming….I can feel it. So many things have changed and been released it’s so clear we are about to step into a whole new period of being and existing) The simple truth is we need a revolution of love. A call to action for each and every one of us to love the beauty and light that is within us. We need to step into our own power and strength. Yes, there are parts of ourselves that we all don’t like to see or face but those are the parts that we need to face the most. It is the key that unlocks a whole new world, a world that has been waiting for you for your entire life. It’s the world of freedom. Free from fear, shame, pride, ego and everything you have wanted to cleanse yourself of.
You can do your part to spread love every day. Walk around with a smile on your face, if you aren’t having the best day think of something that makes you happy and watch a smile appear. It is the simplest of things but can make all the difference to someone. Say “Thank You”, show your gratitude to others. Be kind. When a negative thought comes into your mind, quickly change it to something positive. Slow down and take time to feel the warmth on the sun on your skin, to feel how unimportant all that stress, worry and drama is. Remember what is really important, put things in perspective. These are all things that help make the world a little better each day, positivity spreads like wild fire once started. You never know how many lives you can touch or change by doing these simple things; you may even end up changing your life.
Have a spectacular Monday everyone!! It’s a new week; there is no better time to change than the present. Never give up and never quit fighting!
A few years ago I got interested in my family history; I wanted to know where I came from. At that time my grandfather was still alive so I asked him everything; I knew he was my link to all the history that would be lost when he was gone. He was happy that someone was taking an interest in our family history since no one had before. My father and I took months, and months digging up every ounce of information we could find. We took trips to graveyards, to libraries, and the archives. It got to a point where we became stuck, we hit a dead end and that is where we stopped. Soon after that my grandfather passed away and completing the family history seemed like something that I could put off.
Well yesterday I went with my parents to visit my great-grandparents resting place; my mom had never been there. Visiting the graveyard has re-sparked my interest in finishing what I had started years ago. So here I am again, looking through census records and death records trying to piece the puzzle together. I’m learning a few things I never noticed before, which is always exciting. I still am at that dead end I was at before but I’m hoping that looking at everything with fresh eyes and a new perspective will help me find the information I have been searching for.
Family is an important part of our lives; they imprint so much on us at such young ages. They are a part of us, all of them, how can we know ourselves if we do not know where we come from.
I’ve started to read Soul Coaching by Denise Linn. After reading the first few pages it has me thinking all kinds of things. So for those of you that are unsure what soul coaching is, it is aligning your inner spiritual life with your outer life. It helps to clear away mental, emotional and physical clutter.
Who are you and who do you want to be? Do they align? For me this answer is yes, however I have not reached my full potential yet. I am getting better every day; I am better than I was yesterday and tomorrow I will be better than I was today. How’s your anger? How about your guilt, regrets? You think that you know yourself so well until someone comes along and as you questions like this. It makes you stop and examine everything. What are your beliefs? The ones that you believe down to your core, the ones you were not taught to be true but the ones you know are true.
What’s your self-esteem like? Is it in line with how you want to treat yourself? Personally, that answer is yes, to a point. I always have room for improvements, of course. We all have improvements that can be made, even if we don’t know they are there. For intense, I would like to rid myself of the little voice in my head that is so hard on myself. Always telling me I can’t do something, or what I do isn’t good enough. I have gotten better at ignoring this voice but sometimes it seeps its way in and gets to me.
The big one for me is fear; it does not align with where I want to be compared to where I am. I fear so many things of which are not important. What is important is that the fear I hold inside of myself holds me back from being the best version of myself. This is what I want to change; I want to release the fear. Fight through it and do whatever it is that I’m afraid of. So that fear can no longer hold me back from being free. I want to be like a butterfly, flying beautifully without a care in the world. Going where ever the breeze takes me, taking some time to sit on a flower and take in the view. I want to be free, to break through all the walls, through all the garbage. So I can come out on the other side, stronger and wiser than ever before. Knowing yourself is the first step to freedom, so let’s get going. There is so much to be done….
