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!
Over the weekend I was talking to my husband about not making back up plans for your back up plans. How you should put everything you have into one thing, funnel everything you have into it. Water it with love and energy and watch it grow. It’s so easy to get scattered, and be all over the place with a million ideas. You must stay focused on one thing at a time, learn the craft, practice, and get better. No one is perfect straight out of the gate; it takes time and a commitment.
Life is all about committing to things; be it a person or something you love. It’s all about getting better, growing and learning. Sometimes having no safety net is the best thing for you; it forces you to put everything you have into making whatever it is. All in, all or nothing, if this doesn’t work then I will figure it out but for now this is all I have. That is how greatness is achieved, that is how you become all that you can be. Pushing yourself beyond what you believe you’re capable of. There was a time I didn’t think I could run for one minute and then over time I ran for ten minutes! I never thought I would be able to do that but I took my time, pushing myself a little each day and I made it there.
Those are the kinds of things we are all capable of, if we only pushed ourselves harder and believed in ourselves 1000%. No doubts, No fear only faith and believing in how capable you truly are. We can do anything we set our minds to; it is only ourselves that hold us back from creating the life we want.
Brake FREE, be the CHANGE you wish to see
Yesterday I arrived in Philly; one of my friends had a work trip so I came along to get away from the day to day. We went to Eastern State Penitentiary. The campus is enormous, far bigger than I thought it would be. Upon entering, it felt like you were in another time; the city of the outside world disappeared. You now were in a city of darkness, hopelessness and despair surrounded you. As we walked around the cell blocks it felt as if you were being followed or stared at. You could tell that the prison was still very much alive, and most poisoners had never left. Some of the cell blocks were so negative, there were a few times I had to go outside to get away from it. I felt such sadness there, I don’t know if that was coming from the energy around me, or if that was me feeling so sad for them. I was hoping to the infirmary and some other areas of the prison, but they were blocked off. I could not image having to live out the rest of my life there. My first words entering the prison was “If I had to live here, I would kill myself” to me it was like hell. Some areas of the prison were worse than others, but overall it is undeniable that it is haunted at least to me it is.
After we left the prison, we headed over to see the stairs that were used in Rocky. So we took a picture with the rocky statue, and went up the stairs. I need to work on my cardio, by the time I got to the top I was winded. There were some people there who were running up the stairs sideways, I give them mad props. When we got to the top of the stairs both of our phones died, which meant we couldn’t use uber. Lucky for us there was a cab that just pulled up, so we went back to hotel to charge up. Later in the evening we went out got some dinner, and had so much fun. We met so many new people, and just talked. It was lovely.
My friend has been working all day, so I have been writing like a crazy woman. It feels so good to be away from all the things that normally distract me. I can go deeper within myself, and see how I truly feel about everything. So far I am enjoying my stay in philly, once I got adjusted to the all the energy here, it’s pretty nice. I has been raining for days though, and is still raining. So I am hoping it stops this evening so we can go out and explore a little more.
