New-Age Adulting

I didn’t realize you’re never too old to be a name-caller. 

This world wants you to grow up and learn the rules of adulthood; but no one tells you about how big of babies some people can be.

Do you remember the 2016 elections? Our presidential candidates were no longer politicians. They were celebrities in their own live tv show, and we were the viewers. I can’t believe we had to choose amongst them to be the nation’s leaders. You would think our leaders would want to show us a less dramatic route to being elected. But no. We’re all babies, raising other babies to be baby-like adults.

This era is so important because we don’t have time for nay-sayers!

No more unnecessary fires and fights among one another! Can you not see that we are being guided by nay-sayers who want us to point fingers at each other?

I want to live a fabulous life with all of us growing together!

That means, I want jobs with an actual purpose. I want us to stop victimizing ourselves so we can see how much stronger we are once we let go. I want individual identities to be praised like tattoos, sexuality, sensuality, spirituality, and philosophy! I want us to raise questions without an uninformed mouth shooting you down. I want our thoughts to be blissful. I wish for you to live a day without fearing the presence of something bad happening to you or those around you. I want knowledge to be incorporated through different perspectives from the moment that we all enter school. How many times do I have to watch a child learn about Christopher Columbius, grow up, and realize what he actually means!

I want people to feel confident and comfortable enough to take a moment out in their day to read, enjoy the voices of the words, ponder with their flighty mind, and discover something new about our world!

I know our world has always been judgemental; that doesn’t mean we have to be. If you became a ruler of the world, would you rule just like your rulers, implementing the same biases on those who oppressed you? Will you continue a cycle that is overdue to end?

Or will you be more creative?

We don’t have to be name-callers. We deserve better than those who pretend to still be in charge. The truth is, you and I are in charge, we just haven’t come to terms with it as yet. 

Soon, you will see how much farther we can go once we drop the petty behavior amongst each other. 

Oh, and a little tip along the way: Love yourself. True love starts with you, and never ends as long as you can share the wisdom of it all.

Be Blessed, Babe

Why is Meditation a Solution?

The problems of this world are very real. Yet, the solutions provided for us can be a little questionable at times. 

We are sceptical! We are concerned about the things we don’t understand because we haven’t tried them, or we don’t know anyone who has. Maybe it seems odd that the solution takes too long or costs too much. Maybe this solution just sounds so out of reach that it seems unreal. 

What’s unreal is how we put our goals in a hard-to-reach place, and jump tirelessly to acquire it.

That’s insane. 

We’ve got 99 problems, and so much to complain about that we often don’t allow ourselves to see the big picture of solutions! Yes, I am saying that you are in the way of some of your blessings. Maybe not all, but the most vital ones are definitely a reflection of your idea of lack. It’s not your fault though. No one taught you to be the solution to your problems. The world wanted you to see the solutions they have for you: a one size fits all remedy… if I may say. Despite the fact that some solutions do work, I regret to say that most of the time you are being ripped off. 

Every problem you have can be understood if you were to flip the situation upside down, and tilt it a little sideways. See your issues from a different perspective. Ponder on it from different angles. Get to the deepest source of this conflict, and you will see that all of your problems lie in a very specific idea. 

It’s time that you meditate. 

I know, I know, meditation seems boring and impossible for those with race cars for brains. When was the last time you were in charge of your thoughts, your feelings, and your life’s situations? Meditating is not just a way to sing kumbaya with the trees (though that is also very relieving). Meditating is about taking control of your mental space, and taking control of your life. 

Your mind feels okay when it knows you’re in control. 

Do you remember all those times you were overly exhausted for days, bombarded by everyone else’s stress, unable to find a way to break bread for your lifestyle needs? Your mind was heavy, and weighed on you. In that moment, your brain is trying to tell you that it’s time to take care of what’s going on inside (your mind), because it really needs attention. 

Why meditate?

Meditation is a way to clear your mind… constantly. We get bombarded every single day with just about everything: the news, the kids, the work, your money, someone else’s money, a piece of the past that doesn’t pertain to you at all, even scenarios about the future to “prepare” you for the worst. All of these thoughts bog you down, creating inner turmoil that you don’t deserve. Meditation takes that weight off of you, and reminds you of how awesome you are!

I used to think just like most of you. Meditation seemed really impossible because I didn’t like the idea of sitting down with my endless thoughts. But I learned that I have bigger things to focus on. I wanted more for myself, and I couldn’t blame anyone else, or my past any longer because my actions from this point forward will define my way of living. So I learned and trained, and to this day I am still working on ways to teach myself to meditate. The more I am able to control my thoughts and feelings, the more control I have in this world.

Life will always be life.

It, however, is much less stressful once you can allow yourself to see just how much control you have within yourself, first. Meditation starts with silence, then a fleeting thought arrives, demanding attention. The trick is to understand why it is here, and say yes or no to it. If this thought wants to bring you down, it’s time to understand the inner meaning for this thought. Then, let go of it. If it doesn’t serve the powerful being you are, say no! If you indulge in a thought that will help build your confidence, or give good ideas, say yes! It will stick around, help you out, and guide you to another fleeting thought… and then another while the process continues. The trick is to know how to command your thoughts. Your mind wants to know what you want. If you can command your thoughts, you discover what you want, why, and how to obtain it. 

Meditation is control. 

It is a skill that everyone can gain. However not everyone wants to go through the work to be better. I’m here to always tell you that you deserve better. You always will. Unfortunately, that doesn’t mean that what you deserve will come easy. Like I said, this world wants to give you their version of the solution. I want to give you your special solution: YOU.

Learn to meditate. Sit down for five minutes and clear your head. Wake up in the morning with a positive thought for today. Stand and walk in nature until you feel light and free. Dance when the feeling comes to you. Discover who you want to be around… and avoid. Pick other people’s brains, and have stimulating conversations! Believe in yourself! 

Meditation is not hard work; it is consistent work. Remember that your brain is a muscle too. The more work you do with it, the stronger it becomes. 

It’s time for you to take the leading role of your life, and give yourself the power you already possess.

Are You Worth it?

I hope you aren’t tired of reading this but, You Deserve More!

You are worth more than this world will tell you. Some, like myself, had to figure this out a little late in the game of life. But we’re making it; not just for ourselves, but also for those who came before us, and those who are arriving after. My hope is to teach everyone; because, despite its world’s ugliness, I know we were meant to see its greatness first.

I am a millennial, and I love my generation! We are innovative, rebellious, loving, and experienced! We experienced lack, loss, and a wide range of supposed mental disorders. Those of my generation who haven’t found their way as yet, use these problems as a crutch for their lifestyle. The millennials, however, who are becoming the reason for our name are dropping everything we were once taught to recreate enlightenment, so the rest of the world can wipe their eyes open. 

Society…I’m onto you.

Our society feeds on our pain, suffering, and empathy for the worst. Why are people more susceptible to fall into depression than in love? Why are our tv shows always promoting drama, horror, and vulnerability without many solutions?

Do you remember the year that The U.S killed Bin Laden, and everyone danced over the dead? 

Some victories are worth celebrating. Yet, some things that we consume, even the junk filling our grocery aisles are not good for us. How do you explain why these are in ours faces so frequently?

How do sex traffickers like Randall Volar and many more get away with ripping the souls out of vulnerable young people? How are their sentences similar to a slap on the wrist? How do we sleep, knowing our children…our people are losing themselves because we couldn’t fight for their worth?

The problem is, our society likes to feed on the vulnerable, weak, and the victimized. Society wants to see how we react… and don’t react. Will we become desensitized? Or will we strike out like a defenseless animal? 

Our reactions to the vile of this world are dire to what happens next. The negative responses we emphasize are thus the source of power in this society. We will all encounter bad times. But how we respond will dictate how the world will continue to respond to us.

I’ve got a solution: It’s time we start acknowledging WORTH. 

Pay attention to how much you, your companions, and your neighbors are worth. I’m not talking about monetary value. Doing so will only allow you to see yourself in an objectified form, creating another dilemma, and decreasing your worth. I’m talking about the value you give your thoughts, opinions, and individuality. I’m talking about what you have to offer in this world, and what you deserve in this lifetime…no other.

It’s time to take a step back and realize if you are worth the battles you fight regularly. I can guarantee that once you see more than what others see in you, you will notice just how petty some battles are, and you will open your eyes to the battles that you never thought you’d encounter.

Whether or not you are realizing this, one of our biggest battles in this life is for human value. We talk a lot about BLM, LGBTQ, feminism, and the list goes on. I’m all for our many movements! However, everyone wants to divide themselves up to raise awareness of how unfairly they are being treated and why. We are all being treated unfairly. The biggest culprit is the SELF. 

You are not treating yourself well. And you deserve the best! Are you fighting for the best life for yourself, and your loved ones? 

Or is that battle too high for you to reach?

I met a man the other day, who told me the only one way to find love is through Jesus. I’ve come to realize that a lot of people were raised to not find love in themselves. That one sentence this man told me was living proof that society would rather feed on our guilt and fear for stepping out of line, then tell us how special we are. 

I don’t believe religion is a bad thing. I think ignorance is. It’s ignorant to believe that you can’t find divine love ANYWHERE on this planet. With 7 billion people? Hmm. I’d like a fact check on that.

My point is, it’s never too late to learn about your value. Finding this sense of peace will help you with half the battle; because you will truly know what we’re up against. 

You are worth every moment that you live. It’s time to take your value down from a high pedestal and walk beside it, hand in hand. Make your worthiness the battle of a lifetime. 

Heaven and Hell

There is heaven and hell in all of us. 

Aside from the popular belief that polar opposites are mortal enemies, we often forget that we are the fine line between everything. When people are out of balance we swing on opposite spectrums at the same time… as a whole. We are a massive contradiction! When in balance, however, we acknowledge that we are something more than the English language can define in one word. I’m sure there is a word for that. Maybe it’s been lost in translation, just like everything else that reminds us of how much power humans have. 

So… Why do we all know about heaven and hell?

These very specific other-worldly realms have been instilled in us since the day that our guardians deemed us worthy of being a part of the societal construct. If you do this, you go here. If you do that, you go there. Up. Down. Never any other way. Who says it’s in the vicinity of north and south?

What if I told you heaven and hell are with us, always?

Why are you so concerned about a world you don’t technically exist in, yet you have little curiosity for the one you’re stuck in now? This does not make sense, my dude. 

The fact is, you’re really concerned about your afterlife, because you’re already living it. That guilt you feel from doing wrong consumes your conscious state. You breathe, eat (or don’t eat), and dream guilt. That also goes for your sorrow, depression, unhappiness, self depreciation. The list goes on. You’re familiar with hell. After holding onto such lagging emotions, your world gets turned upside down. Everything around you somehow bothers you, and for some reason it all connects to you. Hell.

On the bright side, you have a choice to experience heaven too! The joys you feel from your latest promotion, a new house, or just a brand new day that somehow wants to smile on you, even for a moment! You hold onto these positive things such as bliss, abundance, power, self-confidence, even love for as long as you can; and life for a moment isn’t as bad as you’d thought. If you’re anything like the average human, even in the midst of happiness you’re wondering “alright…in what direction should I prepare for some garbage to happen?”

That’s unfortunate. Even when in heaven, you can’t imagine how it would be possible to exist in such a place. Where are you really living?

The point is, whether it’s heaven, hell, or another dimension, you’re already a part of that which your mind perceives. 

Just because you put it on a pedestal far for your mind to comprehend what is right in front of you, doesn’t mean it isn’t really there. Take this moment out to think about all of the great ideas. You have put on a pedestal too far for your hands to reach. 

Now take it off… Grasp it with your mind, and live the life you want. 

It may be hard work; but that’s only because you’re a bit of heaven and hell, already. Don’t be afraid to explore what is already so natural inside of you. 

Remember, Noni Night is always here to help YOU.

You’re Better Than You Think You Are!

Stop.

Everything you have experienced up until this point has been a reason why. You are the reason why. Your past is the reason why. Your sorrow, joy, and fear are the reasons why. The loves you’ve had, and feel are the reasons why.

You haven’t taken enough time in your day to stop, and remind yourself of how far you have gotten in your life!

Did you know that I used to be unhappy? Like secretly, dreadfully, unhappy? I often write notes to myself to silently vent and calm my mind, for a better moment to come. I recently stumbled upon many letters I wrote to myself in the past, and could not fathom the things I have told myself. I couldn’t believe how much baggage I carried emotionally, how much turmoil I thought I deserved, even though I told myself I needed better. I didn’t believe it then.

Yet, I’ve come to realize just how much I had transformed in just a couple of years; because I am a clear believer now. I had to toss those letters, because they no longer define the elated being I am today. 

So… what happened?

This is going to sound silly: I followed my passion. I did it for myself, but I also realized I am doing it for you too. As I began working for you, I’ve come to realize that many others wanted to work for me, as well. People can feel when you are evolving, because we are meant to grow together. Sometimes that means people will grow away from you too. That is also okay!

YOU ARE DOING BETTER THAN YOU THINK YOU ARE, BEAUTIFUL SOUL!

You’re going through the works! This has been a season of shadow work (self-purging/recreation), creation, inspiration, chaos, letting go, working hard, rejuvenating, and building a genuine community! If you haven’t felt any of this, it’s time to jump on board. Now is always the perfect time!

If you feel like you’re still driving down a bumpy road, please understand that you are closer than you think! Internal work is always, and will always be a chore, like cleaning your house. Your house gets dirty when you toss things around, invite guests over, leave the home without proper tidying, dropping food on the ground saying you’ll clean it up later. Your mind is the same way. You’ll have to clean it regularly to make sure life’s pressures aren’t clouding your path. And on special occasions (maybe throughout the year), a full blown purge is a necessary task to reboot your life. That special download may be a new project or job, a different location, and new relationship, added family member, and the list goes on!

The fact is, you’re going through changes; and with new topics to cloud your mind, you can sometimes forget just what you’re gaining NOW.

Stop, and look up from your device. Look at the people around you! Did they change? Remain the same? Come back into your life? Are they learning and gaining more? Are they looking up to you, or away from you? Are they evolving with you? Are you entertaining and discovering more people? Are you attracted to a different clique? Their most profound qualities may be exactly what you are becoming!

Your community says a lot about you. So make sure you are not playing the lone wolf game! We need each other more than ever before. If you are going through changes like the rest of us, your community is changing too. We are all vulnerable, yet stronger than ever. This great news! This means you are right where you need to be. So give yourself a hug! The road is always long, seemingly endless, and super curvy just for kicks. You will get there when you get there.

Until then, celebrate who you are now, because you are baked just right! You don’t have the luxury to crumble right now, my cookie friend. 

Now is the time to celebrate who you are, and where you are going. Congrats, Love! Now onto the next step!

Do you need help seeing what that may be? I, Noni Night, am always here for you, spiritually, mentally, and physically. Contact me for any help!

Self-Loathing is Not Cute

I will forever be confused by those romance movies who portray an “amazing love” between a character who clings too hard on another who doesn’t know how to love. In reality, we would consider that to be a very unhealthy relationship. Apart from the level ten clinger who probably has some internal turmoil of the past to discover, I find the “heartless” character to be even more of a concern. 

Self-loathing is not cute…for anyone involved.

Let’s get back to this shielded character. Typically, this one protagonist has a hard time loving themselves and other people because they had a hard past; and now  they carry it over their shoulders, waiting to drop it off on the next poor sop that looks their way. Ouch. They were probably not expecting that.

Despite the fact that they were once a victim of life’s harsher tones, it’s important to understand that one should not remain a victim. Be your own hero, and hopefully even a mentor for those that surround you. 

Everyone has a past. 

We go through varying levels of complications because the universe knows just how strong our spirit is. If we couldn’t handle what happened to us in the past, we would have already been naturally selected. Yet, here you are! Living, breathing, and driving to a better you, whether or not you are fully aware of this! Congrats!!

“So what! Self-loathing is so common!”

Self-loathing is a choice that hurts everyone involved. You are so much stronger than the person you thought you once were. Everyone deserves to be loved, and to have love. Yet, what would your love really feel like, if you were aware of how to express it to yourself? 

Being conditioned in a society that tells us all to give ourselves to everything, we all have a good idea of what altruism means, especially in relationships when you can be the one giving more than receiving.

What about you? Are you giving to yourself?

Self-loathing is a condition that blinds you to the full potential of who you are, and what you can do with the being you are living as. You are standing in your own way of greatness! Of all the voices in your beautiful world, the only thing your mind can pay attention to is “NO”. 

That’s not okay. 

Self-loathing will never allow you to see what you can truly receive, as well as what you can offer. Believe it or not, when you know just what you are worth (which is greatness) you can give so much more than you can imagine! Self-loving attracts abundance like gravity. You become your own planet of everything great, because the answers will turn into “yes” more and more in time!

“So how can I self-love?”

1. Meditate! It’s time for you to start training your mind, to think of all of the positive things about yourself! Look at yourself in the mirror everyday, smile at yourself (even if you don’t mean it at first), and point something out that YOU LOVE!

2. Change your audience! You’re more than likely surrounded by like-minded low vibrating individuals. It’s time to start making new friends! You will notice a difference in the way your lifestyle style changes, and your view of yourself.

3. House cleaning! Take a deep look at your life. If you are tired of being around things that remind you of how much worth you do not have, TOSS IT! It no longer serves you. Don’t be a hoarder of bad energy! It will hurt you more than help you!

4. Forgiveness! As you get rid of the clutter, understand why you don’t need it! Forgive your past, your pains, and yourself. You can’t take it with you. Give yourself a hug every time you re-experience that inner pain. It’s okay now. It can’t hurt you like it did before. 

Now time to Self-Love!

Self-Love is sexy! You can always point out a confident, self-loving individual in a crowd. They ooze with love! Their voice rings, their appearance shines, and you will feel either very attracted to them… or very intimidated. It depends on the demeanor you may have towards them. Don’t think of how much you lack within yourself. You are seeing this individual because that quality exists in you too, even if it’s not dominant in you as yet!

The best romancers are those who know how to romance themselves. They are quite happy being by themselves, but they are more than appreciative of your company! When two are on the same wavelength of gushing charismatic self-loving esteem, the love they have to give to one another, is unlike any other. 

So let yourself love…the way you have never loved before!

The World Dreams With You!

You are a Dreamer… Don’t deny it!

You have all these big dreams to do something great for yourself and the world. That’s exactly why you’re reading this! Your dreams are significant. Do not allow the dying world to fool you into believing anything else. Make way for the new world that is on your side. You are meant to give yourself and your dreams power. 

Whether or not you are aware of this, there exist many other people who are wanting the same thing! 

The dreams we have at night are a bit of a conscious conundrum. On a physical level, they are considered to be an altered state of consciousness that allows you to hallucinate while you sleep. Dreams are not always present for everyone, but we all at some points in our lives dream. Dreams in the modern world are underestimated. We exist in multiple planes, yet we are more consciously aware of one that tells us it is the only form of reality. 

As a medium, I can say that reality is determined by perception. When I talk with other mediums about the presence of entities, we can all see the same thing, yet, our mind alters it so that we can personally understand what we’re seeing. 

Your dreams are another form of reality, like the spirit world, where you are meant to learn and connect to the other realities you are aware of. All of these realms appear so abstract, yet the mind knows what the mind sees. If you see your life falling apart, you will only be aware of the events and people that cause it to fall apart, for example.

So, what does this have to do with your goal-oriented dreams?

Your goal-oriented dreams are perceived to be another abstract form of your reality, barely touched by the physical realm. The most significant thing about your dreams is that you created this reality. Why should that be any less real?

Your dreams are connected to those of many other dreamers in the world. Your subconscious is now asking you to allow yourself to be vulnerable, and express yourself. Do you have dreams you want to fulfill? You are just like most of us! It’s time for you to come out of the closet, and give birth to your ideas! You will be surprised by how many people are willing to work with you to make the collective dream a part of this physical reality.

A closed mouth does not get fed…so open wide!

When I first started Nonna, I knew I had stumbled upon the perfect time to begin my project. I spent many months working, reading, writing, and meditating in isolation. I not only had to build my business, but also myself. Now that I am steadily moving out of my cocoon as the butterfly I’ve known myself to be, I found many other people who want to work with me, and collaborate our visions to bring our brand new life into fruition. This is just the beginning, as it always will be. This journey has taught me to be myself, and to trust in what I have to offer to you.

Trust yourself. The world is in chaos because you wanted something better. Here you go! What deep rooted inspirational voices do you hear? Can you hear it getting louder and louder? Your head hurts and your blood heavily throbs towards the life you no longer want. You’re getting red in the face, and your insides want to explode in your truth!

Let it.

When you burst open, you will find that you have created a wave of change. You will see that beyond this wave, many others are erupting their dreams to life. It’s time to walk over and make your dreams work…together. 

Your path waits for you. Stop waiting. Start Being. 

Set Your Boundaries!

Setting boundaries can be a little uncomfortable when you’re not used to making them. However, you have been groomed with boundaries all around you! “You can’t get a certain job unless you do this. Don’t put your feet or elbows on the table, it’s rude! You can’t just point out people’s flaws, it makes them feel bad”. It goes on and on…

If you are used to living by the boundaries of the world, why aren’t your boundaries important?

Trick question! Your boundaries are always important! If you have a mind of your own, then you surely have a voice to express it! As you grow up, you take note of what you should and should not have to endure, if not by the influence of those around you, it might as well be from your personal experiences. Making mistakes in your past is not a big deal! We live, breath, and do science based on trial and error. If you find yourself in the same predicament time after time, you’re probably not coming to terms with the internal struggle at hand. That unfortunately leads to the incapability to create boundaries for your next go-around. 

Why are your boundaries important?

People make their own boundaries to communicate effectively what is okay, and what is not, as to clarify any confusion in the future. It is a contract between people, things, places, and the self. Every human being has the right to create their own contract. But will they?

Your boundaries are important to sustain a healthy relationship with friends, family, yourself, and partners. Boundaries help you self discipline, so that you can become a better you. Boundaries give you the space that you need to be able to live comfortably. It also helps you to live a life with less chaos, and more empowerment. 

Set Your Intentions!

Boundaries must be made in the very beginning so that everyone involved knows how the journey will be! If you were in a room full of people, going to the same destination, I can guarantee that everyone has their own methods for getting there! If you all keep these steps to yourself, creating expectations for one another, you all may find yourselves in a doozy, unable to get to the final destination together. Communicate your expectations! Creating more boundaries along the way is not a bad idea, but be sure to not contradict your initial intentions! 

If you’re afraid to set boundaries, you are not giving yourself the respect you deserve. Everyone deserves to receive and give respect, until proven otherwise. The universe will still love and respect you if you don’t reciprocate that to yourself. Unfortunately, such a power tool of progression will not be felt or given at its full super saiyan power if you don’t know what it means to give that to yourself! 

I have learned the hard way to create my own boundaries. Struggling with my communication, I found myself backed up in a corner by those who didn’t know what I wanted, and those who didn’t know they were making me feel unsafe. I found in a lot of relationships with family as well as partners that many people were not afraid to share what they wanted from me. Unable and unwilling to make them feel uncomfortable or understanding, I often let them do as they pleased and waited for an “appropriate” response to arise. After my last romantic relationship, I finally got it together. I finally feel deserving of more than what this world has previously offered me. I had to take the initiative to say “no”, “stop”, or “I won’t have this”! Now I know how important it is, and how much MORE respect I will gain from telling someone how it’s going to be from the start!

It’s never too late to learn how to voice your own boundaries. What is important is that you DIRECTLY do it! When I worked at a restaurant, a customer once yelled at me, “what do you WANT us to do?” I realized then even my job, no matter how much servitude was required, needed me to put my foot down! 

Setting boundaries will not only open you up to self-empowerment, but will make and mend genuine connections with others. It will help you to be more assertive, more direct, and more of your own boss! You can tame lions with a voice of your own! You simply have to jump into the unknown, and into the uncomfortable in order to know just how comfortably YOU CAN LIVE!

World Identity Crisis

This society has an identity problem. 

What one person can see, another person may not be able to. If an individual is brave enough to share their perception of the elephant (referenced to the tale of the blind men and the elephant), others are usually resistant to their opinion, fearing that someone’s ideas will take over.

In truth we’re all figuring it out…together or by ourselves.

There are no problems with “figuring it out”, except when you’re not being receptive to knowing.

I once had a friend introduce a very intriguing concern of theirs: it seems as if everyone is trying to figure each other out, instead of getting to know the person they’re connecting to. 

I had to think long and hard about this. Our society is filled with paradigms that identify and shift cultures, create stigmas and stereotypes, and joke and cry about the differences people have from one another. We’re all trying to figure life out, after all…

Yet, figuring it out might be a problem. 

When you walk by a person in the street, the grocery stores, or restaurants, you don’t just look at a person as another comrade human. You profile them! Imagine scenarios of your interaction. Silently comment on their differences. You assume a life that you haven’t inquired about, because you created an idea of whom this person may be without having a single conversation with them. 

Are we all that predictable, or do we choose to see other people based on “human pattern”?

The term “human pattern” can be discovered in a number of ways. Do they look like someone you knew? Do they fit a stereotype everyone jokes about? Do they remind you of a past memory? Does their body language, voice, smell or eye contact stand out to you? Do they remind you of the most unfamiliar parts of yourself? 

The questions are endless! The human pattern is defined by any source of recognition that your mind creates to make sense of what you have encountered, by going into the files of that which already existed in your memories. Your mind wants you to understand your environment. The conditioning you have experienced all of your life shapes exactly what you’re seeing. It’s time for you to ask why. 

We feel the need to disconnect ourselves from others. This disconnection is the motive behind figuring someone out, as well as what makes them so distinct. Yet, if you were to get to know them, your mind will resonate with the similarities between you and that individual. 

If you were to look within yourself, what would you see? 

The friend I mentioned earlier commented that they felt disconnected from society, because of one’s preconceived notion of the world. My friend felt internally disconnected. They had taken on the idea that everyone aims to figure each other out, instead of trying to know one another. This associate of mine internalized the lack of identity that this society holds. 

Do you know yourself? How do you reflect that on your perceptions to the world around you? 

The reason why I emphasize the connection and the healing of the mind, body, and soul is because we are not just walking corpses having a physical experience. We internalize our past, make survival-based responses in the present moment, in hopes of continuously improving our future. How can you make a better future for yourself if you are not acknowledging all that you are, and all that you once were? Your past may not be here, but it resonated in your mind, imprinted on your eternal self, so that you may encounter these memories over and over throughout your life in varying instances. 

Why?

Understanding these connections within your being will help you to overcome the disconnections in yourself. You are meant to know yourself… not figure yourself out. Doing so will allow you to understand that we are all seeing the same thing. One side doesn’t make it the whole scene. Then, you can make the choice to figure out the world around you, or to truly know it. 

Do you need help making the connections that truly matter? Nonna is just a message away.

Are You A Super?

What is a super?

Do you recall all of those hero movies and tv shows you watched as a child, or teenager? Maybe you’re like me, and you still watch them! Well, supers aren’t just the heroes. They are the villains too. Supers are any being that acknowledges their inner power, and manifests it in any reality they see fit for themselves. 

After all, not all villains were born evil. In fact, life probably happened to them, and maybe their only problem was the protagonist of the story. 

Super-men and super-women are pretty complicated. Most of them were born with their powers dormant, lived an entire life away from their natural divine state, and opened the doors of true power by facing their darkest times. Whether or not they became the protagonist or antagonist of someone’s story, the world of super beings acknowledges that being a super starts far from living a super life.

We are all born with a potential to fulfill. We become supers; as we are not typically born supers.

“What about the kids with super abilities to learn, remember, predict, etc.?” 

Childhood magic exists! That means, when you are a child, your powers become a part of you, if ignited early. However, due to societal structure, most of us kill away our childhood magic by “realizing” what is real and what is not. Think about imaginary friends, for example. You’re telling me that your child(self) really made up the existence of non-physical beings with their own personality that talk and play and feel like us? Hmm. To each their own. 

It would be biased of me to say that only those of the “good side” rise and find themselves. In reality, once people find their power, they figure out what battles are worth fighting. That is usually based on a past that one either had to let go of, or ignite thereafter. The sense of “goodness” in a way can be debated. Pagans are often antagonized for their varying perceptions of life. Even the “heroes” of the stories become the bad guys in the eyes of many!

So how does one become a super? 

Yin, yang, light, dark and so on! We have a long term relationship with the polar forces that influence the minds of humankind. One is not solely bad while the other solely good. These forces are just ways to help us find our path. Once you come to realize that you need them both to find yourself, you can find your inner power by means of breaking the social structure of what it means to be the law abiding you of society.

Look at super man for example! Or shall I say Kent Clark? This guy had an office job, until he realized just how awesome his role in life was. And he broke a lot of rules! The X-Men Crew, all varying in ages and self-enlightenment, were very aware of how much they didn’t fit in (even in their family life). Poison Ivy…was a Doctor! And the list goes on!

So…What makes you so normal, that you can’t step out of your comfort zone and find the power within?

Oh Yes! I almost forgot! Are you a Super?

I don’t know whether or not you are a super! That is an answer that only you can provide, because gaining power all begins with self-empowerment.
