How Do You Change the World? Here’s How!

I hold myself to a pretty high standard when it comes to… well, most things. I always want to be better than myself at everything I can do, and to push myself farther than I have before in recognizing my ego and growing on a level that is conducive to knowing oneself and the interconnectedness of everyone.

fire_in_motion_03I always like to see where I give of myself more, and where I give of myself less, and to put focus into understanding why it was that I acted the way that I did, so that I might change, grow, and become something new through my new realization and awareness.

Now, I’m not claiming that I know anything different than you do in regards to creating a change in the world. Obviously, changing the world starts with each individual, recognizing that something needs to be done, and doing something about it. That’s what “Be the change you want to see in the world” actually means. It means recognizing what is real, and acting upon it in a way that you didn’t previously, to change the vibration into something else.

I’m human… just like everyone else. My lens of reality is one of my own experiences, which have led me down some pretty interesting paths. Nevertheless, I believe that there is one thing that, (regardless of who you are) is a truth that we can all share.

Something must be done, and we are the ones to do it.

That’s the whole thing right there, in a nutshell. This particular video was inspired in part by Hannah Rose, who made this video recently which we absolutely loved. It was also inspired by Tobuscus, who has done some absolutely hilarious rants and I felt compelled to get out some of my own frustrations. Stuff that has built up from working with people who act differently than they say, which causes a whole bunch of trouble on both sides of the fence, when the truth is I thought we all wanted to rip down the fence to begin with?

Rather than vent on you the frustrations that come along with dealing with people who say one thing and do something else entirely, I will simply leave you with this.

Sometimes, there are forces of the universe that are outside of our control which batter up against us. Like being caught in a hurricane or a terrible storm at sea. Sometimes, the best thing is to do nothing… and other times, the best thing to do is make haste and action towards your goal, because you don’t ever want to miss an opportunity, and many times, if not always, there is a physical manifestation of that opportunity that needs some action.

So don’t be afraid to make something happen. You are awesome, and You can do Anything!

With love,

30 Traits of an Empath (How to Know If You’re an Empath)

What is an Empath?

Being an empath is when you are affected by other people’s energies, and have an innate ability to intuitively feel and perceive others.  Your life is unconsciously influenced by others’ desires, wishes, thoughts, and moods.  Being an empath is much more than being highly sensitive and it’s not just limited to emotions.  Empaths can perceive physical sensitivities and spiritual urges, as well as just knowing the motivations and intentions of other people.  You either are an empath or you aren’t.  It’s not a trait that is learned.  You are always open, so to speak, to process other people’s feelings and energy, which means that you really feel, and in many cases take on the emotions of others.  Many empaths experience things like chronic fatigue, environmental sensitivities, or unexplained aches and pains daily.  These are all things that are more likely to be contributed to outside influences and not so much yourself at all.  Essentially you are walking around in this world with all of the accumulated karma, emotions, and energy from others.

Empaths are often quiet achievers. They can take a while to handle a compliment for they’re more inclined to point out another’s positive attributes. They are highly expressive in all areas of emotional connection, and talk openly, and, at times quite frankly. They may have few problems talking about their feelings if another cares to listen (regardless of how much they listen to others).

However, they can be the exact opposite: reclusive and apparently unresponsive at the best of times. They may even appear ignorant. Some are very good at “blocking out” others and that’s not always a bad thing, at least for the learning empath struggling with a barrage of emotions from others, as well as their own feelings.

Understanding the Human Aura

human-aura
“If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration.” ~ Nikola Tesla

We often see painters showing a ball of light or halo around the heads of enlightened figures. This invisible, divine energy that actually surrounds every living thing in the universe, is the aura. There are times when you feel the positive or negative vibrations of an individual, that’s the aura of a person. It is a direct reflection of what exists deep within, our true selves and our physical, emotional and spiritual condition.

It is scientifically proven that electromagnetic fields exist around every object in the known world. While in science its often referred as energy field, in the metaphysical world this energy emission is known as a person’s aura. Everyone’s aura is unique – some have a healthy aura while some unconsciously possess an unhealthy one. It describes a person’s emotional state of being.

Just Take The Compliment

A Word on Receptivity.

          All my life I’ve had it in my head that it’s best to help others before myself. Beyond that, I find genuine pleasure in serving others even if it means sacrificing my own desires.

I think at the end of the day, when all is said and done, all any of us want, energetically speaking, is for everything to be at ease. For everyone to be happy. Satisfied. Happily Ever After. No? If you’re like me, you’ve spent the better half of your life busting your chops to make darn sure that everyone else has their cup filled and plate full before we ever hop in line to serve ourselves. If that sounds familiar to you, you may also be accustomed to the mental and emotional drain often set on by this persistence to mother everyone else’s needs and wants around you. By the time we ever get around to even considering our own, there’s just no energy left. Or maybe you’re like my friend and feel straight up guilty or shameful at the thought of doing anything for yourself? Who am I to deserve such things, such care? I’m just little ol’ me, I know my place, and that’s to serve, not be served. Even when our hard work and endless efforts are noticed, how often do we allow ourselves to really accept the compliment?

generosity-as-a-strategy“Hey! I saw you putting all that decoration together AND that you prepared all of the food for tonight! Thank you so much for making all of this possible tonight!”

“Oh, please, no, it’s what I’m here for. It’s no big deal, really. I hope you had a fun time.”

         Ever said that before? The truth is, that’s about the most disrespectful response we could give. Imagine that you’d put together that entire party, a huge, elaborate thing, and you knew it was freaking awesome, and still, the guests stuck their noses up at it. Not one guest showed appreciation or interest in what you’d done for them. That’s essentially what we’re doing when we brush off that compliment instead of embracing it like the gift it is. I’m not going to sit here and act like it’s easy, nevertheless, I feel so passionately that it’s something we can really benefit to work on developing. Receptivity. It’s a HUGE step in the direction of becoming a balanced being. If we exhibit the capacity to give, give, give, and put all this energy out, the universe, by nature, is going to send back just as much to fill us back up, and if we block ourselves to receiving that love, the bitter truth is that we’re going to experience a world of dis-ease.

generosity-portrait-lgYou serve and go out of your way for others because it makes you feel good, yes? So why stop when someone wants to do the same for us? Our being receptive is just one more opportunity to make someone happy! Now that person got to experience the joy you get when you gift somebody your time or services. How exciting! And this keeps the energy flowing. We got filled up AND made someone happy in the fact that we got filled up.

Another point is noticing the energetics of when someone is trying to gift us. Say some stranger says to you, for whatever reason, “I’ll pray for you,” and maybe you don’t vibe with that phrase. Instead of getting triggered, we can recognize that, to that person, to pray for you is a genuine act of service. Another might say, “I’ll dance naked under the moon for you.” As for the details, we may have no clue what the person is talking about, but if we’re really tuned into our feelings, we may recognize, “Oh, that person meant that as a genuine act of goodness towards me. How sweet!”

In summation: It’s time for us to let down our walls. The barriers to receptivity are melting away Now. We are finally allowing ourselves the permission to embrace the acts of others which make us feel good, and we are feeling good about it. We are recognizing when and how the people and situations around us are serving us, and boy is it awesome!

3 simple things to observe that lead to ‘enlightenment’

Keeping it simple…

“It can scarcely be denied that the supreme goal of all theory is to make the irreducible basic elements as simple and as few as possible without having to surrender the adequate representation of a single datum of experience.”

- ’Einstein’s razor’

the 3 simple things to observe that lead to ‘enlightenment’.

Observing these three simple things, time has no meaning, money is irrelevant, and the concept of selfish… evaporates like the morning dew.

Despre-momentul-cand-mi-am-dat-seama-ca-vorbesc-cu-mortii

 

1. Every creature, every person, every thing, every where, makes the very ‘best’ action, makes the very best choice… considering all the information they perceive.

2. Every creature, every person, every thing, every where, is intimately connected to one another, as if it is, one grand organism.

3. The very ‘best’ action, the very ‘best’ choice, is the one that considers every creature, every person, every thing, every where to the benefit of one another, as if it is in fact, one grand organism.

 

 

In truth, we are all one. We are all apart of each other. The observance and awareness of that connection between each other is what is known as Enlightenment, and the practicing of seeing that connection and acting upon it with virtue and honor strengthens bonds and builds powerful relationships, with ourselves, each other, and the higher connections that are far beyond our knowing in these physical vessels.

We are One,

With all of my love,

You Have Heard of The Divine Feminine But Where is the Sacred Male?

I have heard so much of holding space for the divine feminine which is essential
but what about the sacred male?

I am holding such a loving healing space for all men within this dominant patriarchal society. Today in our society the male is told that he must provide for the women (if she is not willing to do so herself) and yet have no emotion or say about it. He has been painted to be the all encompassing leader of the world, yet most are not shown his internal compass. With such sayings echoing in his subconscious as, “Man up” or ” Stop acting like a Child” , men are given great responsibility to provide and guard yet not being taught how to ground this energy or emotion to do so in a sustainable way.

A true warrior knows that his efforts are not effective unless the inside battles have been won first but our society does not allow this. So many women have then experienced what woman will call “Bad Boys” or “Man Children” (extreme societal examples of imbalance) while this is not a woman’s responsibility to “heal” this space for males,  males come to women because women have been allowed this emotionally open space their whole lives. There is an untouched, purity of heart in a women that men seek within themselves. This feminine space is free flowing and open because women have been allowed the release of emotions unlike our dear male counter part. This then manifests as the “Bad Boy” i.e. someone who has buried the memories of childhood and has created a thick layered diversion to deal with the outer realm, so he can feel accepted and loved by society. Then there are the “Man Children” who want to heal the child space by becoming or staying the child and do not want to be pushed into the mold of current societal construct.
