5 Tip For Raising Star, Crystal or Indigo Children

What does it mean to be a Star, Crystal or Indigo child? Many people see these labels as just that – simply labels that make a group of people feel special. The fundamental differences of a Star, Crystal or Indigo person is their core purpose in life.

Our consciousness exists beyond this physical realm, we’ve all experienced “life” outside of this physical reality.

When our awareness chose to incarnate on this planet, we chose a kind of template of our life. Throughout many life times, we have chosen contrasting experiences to better understand ourselves as an extension of Source or God. In this life, if you have chosen to create a beneficial, radical change through whatever means whether it be art, technology, science, writing – or anything you are passionate about; you are an Star, Crystal or Indigo child.

If you can see the blatant corruption of this world, see what’s really going on, dream of a world of unity, and think it can actually happen – you are an Star, Crystal or Indigo child.

If you think a 9 to 5 job, the design of our society and how things are going on this planet are “good” or “just the way it is”, you don’t fall into the category of Star, Crystal or Indigo people. That doesn’t mean you are less important, unique and beautiful in any way. It means your path is not shifting the state of the world.

That is THE quality all Star, Crystal or Indigo people share – it’s the intense desire for change. 

As a child, almost all of us have this inherent understanding. Over time, we are conditioned and numbed to potential of what humanity could be. If you are a parent with a baby or young child, it is vital you allow them flourish in the way they need to. Children are naturally loving, non-judgemental, and incredibly wise when they are in a nurturing environment. Give you children the water they need for their seeds to grow.

 

1. Don’t Cut Their Hair

According to North American traditions, hair is an extension of the nervous system, and spiritual journeyers who grow their hair experience an increase in their abilities.

There are a number of other cultures, faiths and beliefs that also promote growing and hiding of hair, and it has long tradition throughout human culture.

Cutting hair is not like normal for us. Many of us experience haircuts as painfully traumatic and experience deep shock and a sense of loss afterwards. It’s like the intensity of breaking up with a lover kind of loss. Continue reading

Enchanting Portraits Of Native American Teenage Girls From Over 100 Years Ago

Each of these incredibly rare and beautiful Native American portraits are of women and girls between the last 1800s and the early 1900s. The images have been well preserved and it gives us a tiny window into the past where we can admire these women, their unique style, and show respect for their lives.

Although Native American women often had different roles than the men they were greatly respected. They often had the same sorts of rights at the men in their tribe which is incredible for the time period.

In some groups, women were the ones who owned the home and property inside. While it was typical for a chief to be male there were some tribes that would have the women select who he would be.

 “A lot of people think that us women are not leaders, but we are the heart of the nation, we are the center of our home, and it is us who decide how it will be.”–Philomine Lakota, Lakota language teacher

The Great Antidepressant Debate: Which Side Are You On?

Let’s talk honestly about depression, suicide, antidepressants and ‘tapering off’ your medication.

Recently I wrote an article that tackled the antidepressant issue in part, and as Internet trolls do, a lady immediately came along commenting that I’m an idiot for saying that people can come off antidepressants without tapering off. I completely disagree.shutterstock_324566462

Like many people who have had intense spiritual journeys, my personal journey has been through the path of depression and suicide. My first nearly successful suicide attempt was at 14, and I have had another major attempt since then. I spent a large part of my life very medicated, from the age of 5, and have been hospitalized multiple times for what psychiatry termed ‘breakdowns’ – I now know these were layers of major spiritual awakening, the first of which happened at 4.

According to medicine and psychiatry I have two types of epilepsy, temporal lobe and whole brain, and I have bipolar with chronic and INCURABLE depression. Here’s the real kicker though – I am allergic to every antiepileptic medication except one, and that is so prohibitively expensive I’d need a job JUST to afford the medication monthly. I am also allergic to all antidepressants barring a very small handful – within weeks of starting a course of antidepressants I turn suicidal. It has the exact OPPOSITE effect on me. I’m also allergic to lithium.

So when I speak about the journey of depression, suicide and antidepressant medication, I do this from a very personal point of view. In addition I coach and help people with this journey.

In a way I was lucky that I am so heavily allergic to these medications, because first I got to see the wide range of medications out there and the long process they take you through, second because I have personally experienced stopping most of the medications on the market suddenly, and lastly because my situation meant that I HAD to look for alternative forms of treatment.

The problem with ‘Science’

As a woman of deep faith, I tend to have the same issue with ‘science’ based arguments that others do when we proffer spiritual or religious proof.

placebopillScience is a very abstract concept – a false god if you will. We speak about scientific ‘proof’, but science changes all the time, and what is ‘proof’ and ‘truth’ to them today can be totally different next week. They admit it’s best guess.

Secondly all scientific proof is based on the ‘rules of truth’ that science has currently accepted for that area. So you can prove gravity to me mathematically by using the rules of the science of gravity, but you can’t show me gravity or let me experience it.

When science comes along with ‘proof’ of something, it’s according to the rules science has made up. Science has gotten really good at this, giving us scales that tell us what we are and where we fit in.

Starseeds: Understanding Your Mission & Roles On Earth

What does it mean to be a starseed or lightworker, and what is the core mission? 

A shift is taking place. Humanity is changing. Around the world people are realizing that previous paradigms are not working and we must change our way of living in order to survive.

During this time, many people identify themselves as lightworkers and believe that they are here on a mission to help change the world. In simple terms, a lightworker is a person who chooses to change the world by raising the vibration of the self and others. There are many paths to higher vibration and all of them are viable: it is not the details of how you get there, but the outcome that is of greatest importance.shutterstock_420305578

An important thing to understand about this article is that, like any parable, it offers a framework to help you understand the mission and what is going on, using language and pictures that you are familiar with.

We do not presume to speak unequivocally for all lightworkers: we merely wish to create some structure that will help people understand the new world they find themselves living in, and importantly, the things they are experiencing in their lives. We also emphasize that as the creator, you have choice about which path draws you.

Understanding common terms helps us surge forward as a collective group.

When we have definitions and a vocabulary, we waste less time explaining ourselves, and the semantics of terminology, and more time talking about what really matters to us all – the issues that have brought us together as a collective.

As you’ll learn about the morphic field below, having a unified thought structure enables us to form a stronger and more united presence in the global energetic field as well – basically reading and understanding the framework allows you to connect via the morphic field to others who have done the same.

Powerful Words From The Late, And Still Great: Muhammad Ali

As many of you already have heard, Muhammad Ali passed away earlier today. He was an inspiration to many, and on so much more than just a “fighting” level.  Yes, he was a boxer, and an incredible one at that, but he was also a human rights advocate.  The battles he fought were conducted in more arenas than a boxing ring.

He stood up for equal rights, and publicly spoke out against racism in a time when it was dangerous to do so. He refused to participate in the Vietnam war and encouraged others to do the same.  Although Ali was a a man of violence inside the ring, he worked non-violently for peace and justice outside of it. He was an inspiration to countless individuals, myself included.160604012743-03-muhammad-ali-0604-large-169

If you mention Muhammad Ali, one thing will come to mind about his personality- he had a very flamboyant and egotistical manner of speaking. He had a reason for being that way, and it might not be what you think. Of course, he was the greatest boxer of his time (and probably all time) so he mentioned that fact whenever he had the chance.

But, he also used his fame and eccentricity to publicly denounce the amount of money being funded for war, the mandatory involvement in the Vietnam war, racism, and militarism.  Ali spoke about the relation of the federal taxes he paid and his disagreement with how the U.S. government was disbursing those enormous funds, by saying,

“I buy a lot of bullets, at least three jet bombers a year, and pay the salary of fifty thousand fighting men with the money they take from me after my fights.”

Muhammad Ali refused to participate in the Vietnam war, even after being told that defying the draft would cause his career to fall apart, and probably land him in jail.  Part of that turned out to be true. In 1967 Ali was arrested and sentenced to 5 years in prison. The decision was overturned in 1970, and after spending 3 years in prison, Ali was reinstated as the world heavyweight champion by the World Boxing Organization. This is what Ali said when he was asked to explain his stance on the Vietnam war, Continue reading
