Do You Dare to Know the Truth?

Are you looking for the truth?

I’m sorry to burst your bubble, but the truth is a lot closer than you think. In fact, there exist many truths! We humans, aliens, fairies alike, all here to fill in the blank spaces that are reflected from our deepest selves in order to figure out what we truly want to BE!

What in the world?? Allow me to break this down. 

For the longest while, we have relied on our environment to teach us the ways of life. We have learned about morality, structures, nurture and nature, yet we still have so many questions! Life doesn’t come with a manual! 

It’s not supposed to! We are the manual!

Perception is not just about taking in what the world gives you. It’s also about what you want to create, learn, and teach from your own imagination and psyche. The world of nurturing is here to give you key insights to choose from! It is up to you to internalize these pieces of information, and determine if they will be a part of your truth, so that you can add from your own mind to fulfill this idea. Once you have an idea or belief internalized, you then externalize it to see how the world responds to it. 

Your truth is not my truth… and that’s okay. 

Think about some of the most dangerous leaders of human history. How did they gain so much power? How did they make some of the worst decisions for humanity? They created their own truth, and they externalized it. They were shunned by a large part of the world. Yet, they were praised by some!

I’m not saying that all truths are great perspectives. I’m simply saying that you have the power to create your own truth! Do not allow the social paradigms to tell you there is only one way. “Their truth” says that there’s only one way.

Why?

In the novel 1984, the protagonist went against the grain in search of “the truth”, understanding that he can feel things beyond the daily trajectories of his life. He went so far as to “hide” from big brother. Unfortunately, he was unsuccessful, as he was later on reconditioned to be a “civilized” human stock of a society that continued to warp the truth through the media, political propaganda, and even… language! According to this novel, if you can limit the words a person can express, then you can also limit the way they think and share ideas. 

I went hiking a few days ago and encountered a very nice old man who stopped me to tell me about the teachings of the Christian Bible. I personally enjoy listening to varying truths that people have based on their beliefs, because I feel like information, (even a tiny resonating sentence in a prolonged speech) can make a difference in my life. Living in the south however, I encounter a lot of people who want to tell me about their Christian beliefs and aim to convert me, assuming that I’m just not happy with what I believe in. To anyone reading this, I am a pagan, and I despise it when people want to convert me into a religion for many reasons that I won’t waste explaining today. After indulging in this conversation, I then shared a piece of my truth, and explained to this man how important it is for his beliefs to be a piece of the truth in this society. After listening to my piece of truth, his feathers ruffled some, and he told me my perceptions were wrong, and why there is only one way to live. This seems to be a very prominent trait in some religious people. 

That needs to stop. 

I won’t tell you that your truth is wrong if your truth helps you to sleep at night, and smile in the day. And I definitely won’t tell you how important it is for YOU to convert to my truth! We’re all diverse in our minds for a reason. Own your diversity! Your unique mental state will help us to understand our role in this world much more!

Sharp words hurt. It would be best for us to be able to avoid such a situation, but the universe has an interesting way to teach us. Whether or not you perceive this situation as a person invading your emotional state, or a flaw you can now learn from, you are creating a truth in your life that will help you to understand the world you live in at the moment. Truth is relative. That means you may grow out of that truth and find another truth that will help you to live a little easier. So what!

A manual for life does not exist because it is your job to give life power from your own perceptions, even if it’s different. 

Your truth is your business! The truths of other people are lessons for you to choose from. Choose your truth, and hold it closely. Never forget that we are always learning from one another and ourselves. 

It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it”- Aristotle

What Are Your Fears!

FEAR!

Don’t be afraid of the word. For even fear itself should never be feared. You are above everything that tries to tell you “No”.

Do not be so hard on yourself, lovely soul! We are all afraid of something. Birthed into this world, we made soul contracts to better the metaphysical Being that we are, by encountering factors that will bring out the fear in all of us. As morbid as that sounds, it’s for our own good.

Did you know that your biggest weaknesses are made to be your greatest strengths?

Whenever we put our skills on paper, we tend to underestimate ourselves, by cancelling out the things we can not do in this world, or supplying the traits we were too “weak” to overcome.

This is the part where you turn your life around. Your fears are your greatest allies. Your fears force you into a place, unknown to the pattern of the human mind, though ironically enough, it may have been influenced by the patterns of humanity. Fear can be dark, and scary, overwhelming, and sticky. Fear makes you insane, replaying over and over the failures of your mind. 

Fear Wants to Be Noticed.

“LOOK AT ME! LOOK AT WHAT YOU HAVE TO FACE!” This is your time to shine! You must look fear in the face, and say “You are not, me. I am not you. Yet, you are here to teach me. You are my teacher.” 

Learning from fear does not mean to succumb to it. It simply means that at some point in your life, it was your ally, helping you to manage whatever incident just happened to you. Instead of dying on the spot, you learned fear so that you can avoid whatever traumatized your helpless self. It stuck with you, because your subconscious, and your society told you to survive. But now you’re a bit older, you’re wiser, and you don’t just want to survive. You want to live. 

Your fear helps you to survive, until you are ready to live. 

Living means that you are above taking care of the necessities. Living means adventure and comfort, stress and relaxation. Living means finding that balance so that you can fulfill that contract you made to yourself a long time ago, so that your life is The Fantasy. You don’t have to fantasize an afterlife, when it can be so good on this side as well!

It’s okay.

Fear may be something that we work through all of our lives. It’s time for you to see that your fears are not your enemies. The snobby dramatic people, the corrupt politicians, the hateful relatives are not your enemies. They are a reflection of the enemy within… your fear. Life has a really metaphoric way of teaching us who we are. Though it seems so critical that we end the danger now, there will always be something or someone to face. Look at life on the comical side.


We’re not supposed to be this serious, tense, or stressed. You Are Amazing! Full of Life, Death, Joy, Expression! The grief and fear you feel with it all is meant to test your ability to balance: what no longer serves you and what you are. 

Look fear in the face. Understand why it has been with you, and what you now have to learn of it, now that you are ready to live. 

The Service Industry

I’ve worked for many years in the service industry. Before getting a wage, I was raised to be of servitude to others. I was made to be concerned for their well being, to find the right solutions to their problems, to be as social or as quiet as they needed me to be, and to grow up knowing that what I do to others, is also what is going to happen to me. I later worked in the serving industry for what felt like too long, and do you know what I learned? No matter how proper or cordial, or concerning I could be for others’ emotions, I’d do myself an injustice for giving up my comfort for their snotty attitudes. 

It’s time to make America a better place.

A lot of people in my generation are very polite to those working in the serving industry. I believe that life has taken its own little toll on us, forcing us to open our eyes, and be more aware of the people around us, and the impact we make on them. Most of us had to learn by serving people, so that we can learn to serve ourselves. From working in the restaurant industry, I can say a thing like that is not spared to everyone… and it shows.

Intolerant customers, please understand that your temper might be big. However, your sever’s temper is much stronger. It takes a certain amount of patience to be able to handle the most stubborn of individuals. It also requires thick skin to live life with a big smile, knowing you’ve encountered a lot of boorish individuals. Underneath this thick skin, is one big baby waiting to hulk smash on the one person that wins the biggest asshole award. Most of the time those people are the ones that are closest to us. Clients may know how to annoy you in order to get what they want in a specific setting. Yet, loved ones know how to push the right buttons, to get you to react for their own personal amusement.
Let’s make America a better place:

One. 

People, let’s stop trash talking to each other. We all want the same thing. You want to spend your money on something that you deem deserving of your satisfaction. Your server, nurse, telemarketer, IT helper, and many others, want to gain the necessary money to spend it in the same way that you do. This is the cycle of commerce. Now that we know we all want the same thing, it’s about time to be nicer to each other. 

Restaurant customers, your servers did not cook your food. Patients, your nurses are not trying to kill you. If that were the case, you might as well ask your server to do surgery on you. Those who take care of you want the best for you, even if they aren’t perfect. 

Two. 

Be patient with your loved ones. Life is already stressful with money problems, job dramas, a certain sickness in the minds of the people, and the list goes on. There’s no use in putting your personal pressure on the people you love. If you find your loved ones having a negative moment, you should give them exactly that…a moment away from you while they are dealing with life. If you are around someone that continuously pushes buttons… run. There is no moment with them. That is their life! You’ll have to discover whether that is worth the energy and the time you are spending. 

Three. 

Teach kindness. We get it. Your feelings are hurt, so is his, hers, and everyone else around you. Stop taking on the pain that someone else impeded on you, only to push it in the face of the world. Trust may be hard to go around, but kindness shouldn’t be. It’s time to make this place better by first understanding that we live in a country that accepts a lot of free thinking and diversity. We shouldn’t use these things as a weapon against each other, but instead as a barrier to be united. 

We see this division in our outside world, because we are divided in ourselves. 

When was the last time you’ve dreamt of something big for yourself? Did you let yourself have it? Did you declare yourself deserving enough to drop what you do or have now, so that you can have that big dream? Or do you perceive a great divide between your dreams and your reality? How is your world any different?

The service industry has taught me many things. The biggest lesson I have learned is that I am worth more than this world gives to me. I then have to gather the strength to give myself what I deserve. It is time that you redirect the service you give, to something much bigger. Your dreams count too. 

Make America Better. 

We’ve been the superpower for so long, but what are we showing as a society? The same ten songs on the radio, a caricature of the human image, too many false products, and not enough love to go around? That’s insanity. 

NO!

This is the new America. We will treat each other divinely, as if we weren’t hurt in the past. We will use our diversity to understand that different perspectives are needed to make a very large  picture. We will respect the people that we serve and those that serve us, no matter how miniscule their occupation seems. Every heart matters. We will spread love like it is the shiny new BMW of the century. We will know that love exists in ourselves so abundantly that it can be shared!

This is New America. Here lies the place that the world wants to go to, because we become the superpower of society, the great influencers. We become the revolutionaries the world has been waiting on. We are meant to be the melting pot of the world! That’s what makes a society so great- being one and whole with everyone who wants to be involved.

Masculine Power

As a society, we are all reinventing the definition of feminine energy. Many have felt overwhelmed by the imbalances of forces. However, we must understand that there too is a redefining period for the masculine overtone. It is our job to make sure we remain balanced to the natural forces that we are made of. 

Masculine energy is practical, structured and logical. Masculine energy is the push we need to get anything done. When it is out of balance it may become over-controlling, in a way that makes people feel oppressed… Sound familiar? 

When the feminine energy is out of balance, it will make people feel out of control. These energies are very important in their own way. We must not reject that which we don’t understand. 

Masculine energy is within all of us. It is the wind that blows on a hot day. It is that rock-hard stubbornness that forces us to never back down. It is compassion expressed “because *insert observational standpoint*”. 

Masculine energy is known to be the warrior spirit itself. That is not true. Masculine or feminine, we will wage battle and win (in our own way). Masculine energy in a battle understands black from white, whereas feminine energy is the grey overtone everywhere understanding both sides, even if they choose only one. 

For too long, masculine energy has been out of balance. People misuse this energy as force, leading to enslavement of the people and the self. They use “chivalry” as a way to define the more charismatic characteristics of masculine energy, that only led to limiting the power of the feminine energy. 

When people think about witches, they more think of Glinda the good witch or the wicked witch, instead of Kal the wizard (from Halloweentown). In Halloweentown, they introduced the good male witch (or wizard) as pretty resisting. Even Dylan did not want to be a part of his natural metaphysical being. He wanted to be whole and “normal”. What is whole without the most basic parts of yourself acknowledged? Moral of the story, men are magical too! And magical women are waiting for YOU to come out like Kal!

Most say that the masculine energy has a sense of duty. While that may be true, I will also argue that everyone needs a purpose to fulfill. Masculine power is the resistance away from resistance. Continuity in patterns, routine, and order are a huge part of masculine energy as a way to ensure survival. 

I am a woman that recognizes my feminine power as much as the society around us. Yet, I know I am balanced in my masculine energy as I enjoy order, balance, and making things happen by my own personal methods. I am continuously in check with myself to make sure the actions I take and words I say are within equilibrium to the intentions I set out and the forces I withhold. 

The masculine power is as wielding as the feminine. Together, we become whole in ourselves.

In what ways are you conscious of your masculine and feminine power?

Feminine Power

When most people picture feminine power, they think of the feline: delicate, graceful, feisty, and courageous. There is so much power to the feline being in total, however this is not the only animal that which we women connect to. In fact, if you were to take away the label of the animal-like human, you’d see that there is much more than meets the eyes of the physical world!

We are Interconnected Metaphysical Beings!

Aside from that, WE are men and women. Sometimes we are a little more of one specific gender. Other times WE ARE both, depending on the identity that suits your nature. We all, to an extent, have feminine qualities to ourselves, and there is nothing wrong with that! If we were all strictly masculine, or strictly feminine, it would be much harder for humanity to find common interests and qualities within one another. That being said, this article is not meant to exclude men, but instead to give insight on the shadows of society. 

Back to the Feminine Power!

Ladies, it’s time to stop living in the world that everyone says that you do. We are not meant to wait on our knight and noble stead to swoop us off our feet and have a wonderful life, the end. Most men are too lazy for that anyways! And that’s okay. Women are not supposed to be the only ones cooking dinner every night! In fact, these societal standards of gender are on its way out, with the OLD comprehension of what it really means to be human!

The feminine power has been hidden from us for too long! We live in a society that thrives on order, conservativeness, factions and systems, and specific roles. We live in a society that strictly abides by pushing and pushing in order to get what we want! We live in a society that downplays the power of many in order to feed on their essence and give back very little.

While these qualities of life have worked for some time, they are only part of a society. The feminine power indulges in pulling like the moon onto the ocean. it is empowered by sharp instincts and influence, rebellion, and much more. The feminine power is not inferior to the masculine, as we are not delicate and nor weak. Feminine power, found in all of us (yet plays a primordial force in women) encourages change, progression, chaos, balance, birth and death, and the infinite knowing.

The reason why people are coming out as pagans, witches, and earth-based spiritualists is because people are grounding themselves to the truth of reality. Society isn’t thriving because it’s not accepting all sides of that which define humanity

Women, we are influencers too. We are fighters, warriors, leaders, speakers, healers, teachers, and so much more.!We can learn anything and everything we focus on, as we are flexible by nature, capable of taking on many tasks and accepting change. Our power is resilient, as we can undergo an entire society attempting to burn us, beat us, and blame us for the violence of other people. We are change. Society could not evolve without the feminine power. 

Society, stop telling women to refrain from doing things in life! You have perverted our identity for too long. We are not here for your pleasure. We know that it gets a little hard to see clearly, when man wants to remove Lilith from the history of human creation. She will never hide as long as women know of their liberating spirits.

Similar to most of this world, I was raised in a family that defined gender roles for me. In fact, I was encouraged to marry a man who could take care of me in ways to promote gender superiority, if you know what I mean. My family meant well, but I entered the dating world and realized that society was nothing like chivalry. In fact, I found myself in too many cases being the mother of my significant other, instead of the queen. Yuck! It took me a very long time to explore cultures outside of my own in order to realize that I have more power than this world would like to give us women credit for. 

What is up with the feline image of women anyways? Women! We have been deceived too many times over! I’ve stumbled upon quite a few sources that suggest the “taming” of women by depicting them as cats and influencing them to be the “inferior feline”. They are displayed as sexual, sensual, and expressive by simple means of pleasing “humanity” (aka. The flesh). This is inaccurate in so many ways! There exists ancient goddesses such as the healing Bastet, who implores power in womanhood and freedom, and Sekhmet, who is the lioness you are not meant to mess with! 

If you were to watch a cat in their natural form you can see that they either like you or they don’t; whether or not they have formed a discernment towards you they will NEVER let you take their independence away! Cats are misunderstood for so many reasons. They are BIG BEINGS in tiny cute furry little bodies. They may take the embodiment that scares humanity the least, but never take their small features for granted. Ladies, if you consider yourself to be a cat wake up the true Lioness Cat within you! 

The feminine power is now, as society changes and seeks a new identification. This world is changing because it is redefining the power of the woman. By channeling this energy correctly, we can gently pull each other together and really discover what is truly worth fighting for: A balance of the self and society within this universe.

This is just the beginning.

This is Not Okay…In Relationships

Relationships aren’t as easy-going as the movies make them out to be. However, they should not be as hard as pushing a boulder uphill. If a relationship causes you more stress than it does happiness, it’s time to rethink what you deserve.

Compromise in a relationship is a necessity

After talking to a number of people about relationships, I’ve found that individuals leaning more on the feminine side of their being are primarily the ones who will change and adapt numerous times in their relationships, for the comfort of their “other”. 

This is not okay.

Some think it is the nature of the female to adapt, and change, while the masculine figure is a creature of habit. While these are prominent traits in each gender, they are not defining aspects of a gender

An individual person has to be able to balance these lifestyle qualities in order to live an interestingly grounded life. A significant other is not meant to make another person feel whole, as the two are simple halves waiting for the other side. TWO must already be WHOLE in their individual beings! We might have soul mates, twin flames, or even twins. Yet, before we encounter any tribe members, we are what we are

We are meant to be whole by ourselves! 

As I am a woman myself, I am more familiar with the perspectives of other women. Women take on a huge role to change for their lovers. They change their friends, their appearance, their lifestyle, their kinks, their schedule, their money management, and their focus. They get tired of needing to change so much all the time, while their significant other simply adjusts to being around another person. 

This should not be. 

Women, you are changing so much about yourself that eventually, you will not recognize the person in the mirror. If your significant other can not adapt to who and what you are, or does not want to change with you, you will always feel like you sacrifice more than they do. You deserve to have a significant other that can make the same amount of sacrifices that you do!

Change may be uncomfortable, but change is imminent. We are always changing for ourselves, the people around us, the society that shapes most of us, and the goals we have to fulfill. Women, there is nothing wrong with saying, “I will have this, because I AM this!”

I too made the mistake of sacrificing more than I should have in my relationship. I abandoned my friends. My new friends were my significant other’s friends. I was pressured to change jobs because it made my significant other more comfortable for me to be a graduate with a “decent” job. I always drove to his home, because he didn’t feel at home in mine. I’m not an animal person, but I made his pet, my new animal-child. I cooked and cleaned all the time when we lived together, even when I was dog tired! I didn’t pursue my passions until I lost my job, and even then I was told I wasn’t doing enough for the home. No matter what I changed, it was never enough. After talking to a few women, I realized, I was not the only one going through this. 

When our relationship ended, my ex realized what he wasn’t doing. I too realized my own fallacies. It’s funny how much you realize when everything ends. He wanted me back, and finally wanted to change to show me that he can. I knew that he could all along. But I couldn’t make him when I needed it. Deciding to do and be better, is a change one has to make for themselves. Everyone is capable of change. 

When I saw just how rapidly my ex can change for the benefit of others, I was angry. I worked so hard to make him comfortable. I would have moved a mountain for him if he needed that. But he only felt the need to do the same when he knew that he’d lost me.
Women…Men ALSO, if you are sacrificing more than you are getting out of your relationship, know that you are worth more. Do not let your significant other feel so comfortable that they won’t move, or change, for you. Everyone is capable of doing it. They have to want to do it.

Relationships require compromise, balance, and care for the self and for the other. No one but yourself can make you whole. Stop treating people better than you would treat yourself. Would they realistically…in any given moment…do the same for you?

WE are interconnected, metaphysical beings. We are true beings of love. Love comes in many, many forms. Yet, love is truly healthy! Do not be fooled by that which is not healthy. 

It might be time to rethink, or re-feel what love is.  

P.S. I Forgive…you, myself, us. 

Not a Loophole, But an End

You need a big break!

For the past month or so, there have been so many planets in retrograde…at the same time. This is not a coincidence!

This is not a drill.

If you have been strolling through your life with a large sack of useless, burdensome things (emotions, memories, people, etc), and you find that now, your sack is so large, and wobbly that you can’t take another step, then you have hit a very important time in your life. 

Universe is taking its time out to focus on Earth (on YOU) for very specific reasons: Letting go, choosing your battle, breaking cycles, reinventing yourself. What you are experiencing in your life is no coincidence.

If you feel out of control, even in your own body, consider watching my YouTube videos. I’m here to tell you that you have more power than you’ve previously perceived! YOU ARE OKAY. If things are going sour in your corner, you’re more than likely having a hard time releasing what YOU KNOW doesn’t feel right anymore!

Have you been angry at someone for too long? Have you been disappointed in yourself? Do you feel shackles on your being? It’s time to release it all!

If you’re having a suckfest in your life, you are dealing with INTERNAL TURMOIL! The universe is asking: “What do you want?” and “Are you currently pursuing that, or are you lollygagging?”. If your answer to the second question is the latter, then understand that all of this is being revealed to you now. You are being thrown into your past, present, and future all in one moment. You are spiraling into chaos! Change must come, and you are holding onto those things that you know no longer benefit you; but you are creatures of habit. You are currently terrified of change.

You should never be afraid of the natural things of life. You are made for balance. You are made to evolve.

I can’t tell you how many times I have encountered people recently, who feel paralized by the place that they are in. By talking to all of these individuals I came to realize that they are all stuck in a loop. They can not not see this, as they are clouded by their own frustrations. They simply think that they are venting to me, until they speak about different scenarios with the same outcome. Over and over they are flustered, and the willingness to change, makes them even more agitated! 

I looked at a friend once who said, “you’re trying to figure me out”. I sat for a few minutes and thought about their reaction to my supposed facial expression, and replied, “No, I’m not. I’m just confused because you’re storming in a continuous loop of your own internal conflict. You’re stuck, and you don’t have to be.” I proceeded that conversation with a little advice to acknowledge the main problem, and the keys to breaking one’s cycle.

There are plenty of reasons to be upset at this time. I will not ignore your frustrations. I however, will not condone your consistent reactions to these supposed conflicts. You are okay. You just need to ground yourself, and truly figure out what you want. What you want is not farther than you think! You have to allow the planetary forces to aid you through this process of transition. 

LET! GO! 

Your long term baggage will come out of you, the easy way…or the not so easy way. The universe is making you face your fears, your traumas, your pain, your confusion. Do not think the forces of chaos are here to weed you out. It wants you to find your way, but change is not a handout. It is a matter of pulling towards you, while the universal forces push your way, leveraging that which want, on your side. 

Take a moment to sit, breath deeply, and allow your thoughts to roll through you. It is not physically harming you. Tell you mind what you want. Feel it with your heart. Allow your gut to be enriched with the sensation of this fulfillment. You will face that program of habit. And you must be louder in your mind. The more persistent you are, the quieter the voices of doubt will be. 

The patterns of our pain are coming to haunt us now. We finally know what has been holding us back. We now have the tools to break the cycle! Do you want to continue to be thrusted out of control, or do you want to grab it by the ring and SMASH! FREEDOM!

What you want, wants you. The first step to getting what you want is saying, “I’M OKAY ”.

Why You Have To Purge Regularly

Humanity is so off balanced! We’re either playing the game of “TAKE TAKE TAKE”, or we’re too busy GIVING, to notice a bucket load of energy leaking right out of us! In today’s society everyone focuses on getting better, getting more, aiming higher, and so on. Truthfully, it’s a wonderful thing to want better! There is, however, a problem in the lack of balance. With every give, must come a balance of take, and vise versa. In order to achieve that which you want, you must release whatever holds you back now (what once was a helping hand, might have eventually became a burden). I don’t think we know, as a society, how important it is to release more often than the occasion requires!

Release that which doesn’t serve you. Release that which doesn’t free you. 

Letting go is not as hard as we think it is. It can be difficult. If one knows that they are releasing something for a better thing, but that better thing is not in one’s face, it will make holding onto that which you already have tightly gripped much harder to let go of. 

Not seeing that which you chase after is the fate of life. 

We aren’t supposed to have it all with the snap of a finger! Life makes you work and want it, because it wants to know if you know how much you deserve it! Life would be so flat if we just received everything we want! Even the mind needs exercise!

We spend so much time in our day building, that we have to remind ourselves to let go. Let go of those harsh words someone at the grocery store said to you. Release the anxiety gripping in your chest. Release the day’s pile of mental garbage. 

Releasing is important to do, because we build up so much unnecessary clutter in our minds and bodies, which cause a number of strange ticks over time: stress, lack of memory, short fuse, poor eating habits, need to escape, relational problems, and so much more. Even if you are a giver, and you give all that you have to other people, you’ll find that with the lack of vital essence in you, there are a lot of holes that get filled with energetic garbage: lack, stress, fatigue, and the list goes on. 

Don’t allow yourself to be off balanced any more. You are meant to feel weightless!

Now is the time to start regularly releasing and purging.  As you release, you’ll come to find that you have more energy to direct. You automatically fall into the balance of give and take. 

Some ways to release can be running, meditating, remembering to take deep breaths, forgiving, and being active in water. 

It’s hard to realize that you have so much garbage on you until the weight has been lifted off of your shoulders. I too even have to remind myself to go outside and let go. I find that the more I remember to release, the more powerful I know that I am. It feels like stripping off a heavy armor, only to realize how much faster and freer I can run without it.  Imagine if we felt that way…all the time!

Take back control of your life. Releasing the big things are vital steps to moving onto the next stage (if you haven’t already, check out my article “Let Go” in order to learn about the BIG purges). Taking out the internal trash everyday reminds you that you are always more than this world perceives you to be!

Condition your mind to follow a routine that will help you live the life you want!

You Are Worth It All

The nature of human kind is inquired about from the time of our birth. Are we innately good, bad, neutral, or will nurture take its course and shape us accordingly? A conversation for another time pegs one very meticulous answer:  We are all born selfish! “Feed me, burp me, clean me.” We have no sense of what to do with another person’s feelings for a very long time. We are born knowing we deserve everything we could possibly need and want. 

What happened along the way? 

To this day, most people have to fight for the things that they really want. The sad part is, they end up choosing the option that gives them what one feels like they need, rather than deserve. Most people know how to put more care into another person, than within themselves. Despite the fact that we were all born knowing that we’ll get everything we need, most have now matured into beings of lack- unable to trust the possibilities of one’s greatest desires manifesting right in front of them.

You Are Worth It All.

I don’t know where you lost it along the way, but I’m here to tell you that it’s okay to take it back. We all want things. We want and need, and want some more. And we crave it so bad we’d give up an organ for it! What if I told you, the only thing that you have to give up is the tiny voice in your head that says you can’t have it? 

When we grew up and realized this world does not surround us, we gained a new sense of service for others rather than ourselves. We call this altruism. This is truly a gift of life. However, most of us have forgotten another wonderful gift: balance. Yin and yang are complete opposites, yet they serve each other well because they eventually become one another to create the beautiful whole. We have learned to be served as an infant and child, we have learned to serve others beyond that point. We understand what other people deserve, yet we have been so off-balance because we forgot WHAT we deserve…even if we wish upon a fallen star every night. Do you feel like you can actually have it? Do you feel like you are in range of achieving it? If it looks farther than you think, then you are not giving yourself the opportunity to understand that what you want is already with you… as it is of you.

What does that mean?

Everything we think of is already a part of our reality. The illusion is thinking those things in your reality are outside of yourself. You might not be able to have it in this very second, but your reality wants you to know that whatever you want is closer than you think. This reality is setting a standard for you. You pick and choose from these as you please.

In a relationship, for example, most of us will go through many suitors to find the one(s) that are up to our standards. It took some time, didn’t it? You first had to understand that you are dateable. Then you had to figure out what you wanted, and what you deserved. And you didn’t stop there. You found a few options, BUT you stuck to your gut, and found the individual(s) that you set your mind to having. You already knew they existed. Why are your passions any different?

Everything we perceive has already been created in our reservoir of desires. Our wants and needs are a little similar to this situation; we first have to know what we want. We then decide that we want these things because we deserve it. The hard part is convincing yourself to actually acquire that which you deserve. You do that by understanding that you already have it.. 

It already exists for you! You simply have to tap into that reservoir, similar to opening the lid of a well in your backyard. You are thirsty. Like you just spent the last week stranded on the saltiest island, thirsty. Now your back home, and you see everyone else with a fresh glass of water, and you too want that refreshment. Well that’s not hard. Why don’t you just hop into your backyard, and dip into your well. It’s here for you. But it’s not directly in your face. You have to remember that you have a freaking well in your yard! You are abundant in this resource.

It’s hard to know whether you will have something that you deserve if it seems like no one else is acquiring it easily. If you think about it this way, almost everyone around you struggles to truly take care of themselves the way they’d take care of others. Almost everyone around you forgot that they deserve happiness by pursuing the thing that makes them the most happy, because everyone thinks about bills, other people, political issues, then the list goes on. We’re all using these things as a distraction, because it’s easier to pay attention to what’s in front of us, rather than that ideas that we have to find for ourselves. Do not forget that it is always a wonderful thing to give to others, but you must also give to yourself. We have lived life for so long serving others that we have forgotten about the great balance. Now is the time for you to remember that balance.

You are worth everything you want. Release that quibbler that taunts you inside. Get rid of the illusion of lack. Look to your well of abundance. It will always be with you, waiting for you to realize you have the capacity to have it all.

I Believe In A Thing Called Karma

My first few years of college were eye opening. It was the first time I had ever felt like being my real self was publicly acceptable, even if I hadn’t figured myself out by then. The biggest game changer was being a pagan, meeting others, and helping the rest to discover their inner pagan… if they wanted that, that is. Sounds…strange, hmm? My intentions are never to convert someone… I only like sharing my side of the world. But this story isn’t about me.

This story is about a student I knew, who discovered their inner pagan, indirectly through my influence, and became a garbage human. This person would come to me for questions they may have had about my spirituality. I saw them as a friend and a padawan, until something didn’t add up. One of my other college friends told me this wild story about this person invoking evil for the fun of it. I later found out that this person was intentionally stealing the force right from underneath their own companions. A belief system (religious or not) has a way of bringing out the best in people…or the worst

What started out as something so curious and inspiring, turned so dark and abusive in the world of their victims. They didn’t know what was going on. None but one. I felt in a way like Dumbledorf, looking upon what Voldemort had become. I didn’t make them this way. They simply chose. 

I believe in a thing called karma.

I recently read about reaching a certain level of consciousness that relieves someone of karmic pressures. It is a force of being that relinquishes you of lower level attributes of consciousness. As alluring as that sounds, I then have to question, why then are you here if you relieved yourself of such cosmic influence? I will never downplay something that I don’t fully understand. I am not fully knowledgeable in that topic. I am, however, conscious of two things: 1. We are all here as students and teachers, continuously learning until the whole being is through with a cycle, and 2. Most of us do not get to see the karma unfold for those who have wronged us or other beings.

I don’t think that karma is out to get people. I think karma is a teacher. However you perceive the intentions of this force is of your own accord. Karma is the flow of consciousness, based on what we have learned, and what we aim to learn in the future. It wants to connect the dots for you, and tell you why this strand of memory in the past connects to your present predicament. It doesn’t hold a grudge to make you feel bad. It simply is a way for you to understand the perspective of another person. My karma has allowed me to learn and grow, help, and feel hurt. It has allowed me to mature and realize that this world doesn’t surround me. This earth is not the only inhabited planet in the galaxy. 

I believe that karma really does want us to be above this force, so that it doesn’t have to teach us anymore tough lessons; but we are interconnected beings. We have to be aware of what we do, and how that impacts our future as well as the rest of the world. What kind of waves will we send out to the universe? If you were to feel that wave magnified, would you appreciate the flow of energy? 

Life isn’t all good, we know this. However life dances around us in the way that it does to see what our next move is. Will you lead or will you follow? Will you stumble and stay on the floor or will you stand back up and change your moves? Kharma is the judge, scolding you to get back up, giving you points numbered 0-10 based on what routine you bring to the dancefloor. At 10 you are in command, and flowing with grace as your partner, life, flows back with your suave moves. 

I don’t know what the karma of this one particular student will look like. But I do know that karma knows all, because it is a force within us all. Knowledge is meant to elevate us. Please don’t see that as a way to tear others down. We are not in a race with other people, we are in a race with ourselves. Be good to others. Be good to yourself. I won’t define what that should mean to you; because you should be the designer of your morale. 

You are in charge of what you do in your life. You are in charge of learning along the way. Do not make your life any harder, by making it hard on people…or yourself. Send out waves that you know you deserve.

P.S. To my fellow pagans, be wary of those who pretend to be your friends. Sadly, not every fellow (pagan) is on your side.
