Ka Lonopūhā (The Healing Art)

KIMG1185

We all have our own method of healing our Selves

Ka Lonopūhā …loosely translated means “the healing art.”

We are the creators of our own personal healing art. The photo is one of my favorite places to think, to decompress, to realign my brain so that it and my mind do not go at odds with each other.

Ka Lonopūhā…The Healing Art

In my actual studies at school, I Am the not-so-quiet and very much involved with my studies, and my environment, and those who I share the immediate air and my time and soul with…type student.

Much as I Am in all of Life. Including the one that I live away from school. The one that I live with the people who mean the most to me and who are not aware of the thing that a whole lot of them are denying, even though it would appear to be the other way. It would appear that a lot of them are fending off the thing that they believe that they are not. Instead, it is not that they are fending anything off or away – if it is observable, it is part of you, but the part that is apart from, physically, you.

Too many people want to believe that when someone tells us that something or someone is a part of us, that they are in our energy.

They are, BUT, not in the way that your brain cannot comprehend, and all because no one could explain it well enough because no one chose, but a very small number of us on this planet, to merely observe, even ourselves as being part of that observation – which means that indeed, there are a lot of us who are watching ALL of Life, with our own Selves as also being observed, in relation to everything that is going on collectively.

Right now, and collectively, the energy is that of a very healing nature. More and more people are coming out of the silence, and we are voicing our pain and we are letting it go, out into the arms of the loving Universe, so that it can be transformed into what it is meant to Be, which is Bravery, culled from fear. To cull something means to cut it out and reject it because it does not meet up to standard, let alone par. The Bravery upon which we cut ties with our old selves are done so once it is that we have chosen to cull…or reject….fear.

The way that we cull the fear and become Brave is to bother with Being our highest best selves, even if that highest best self, the each of us, feels differently and is having whatever kind of experience we are having. The collective whole of us wants things to be lovely, and really, we want things to be good for everyone.

Okay, maybe I am the only one who wants this, no matter how mad I am at someone, or how much I dislike anyone or yeah…even hate them…(don’t hate ’cause of their well earned and culled hate they are getting from me….it is the thing that is culling them from me in reverse…..reread that – you’ll understand it when you need to). Maybe I actually am that sort of person who, for whatever it is worth to anyone, will let things go. I am that person who is able to stand in my…”Reverend Pose” and be there, in that personality and look at things from that observer’s point of view, and stand apart from the situation long enough to see the human factor involved.

…then suddenly realize that I am also part of that factor, that I am as fallible as anyone would be and most of all, I have no right to hang on to anything that I have no business having an opinion about. Unless it is my own, about myself, or regarding myself in relation to anyone else.

When I do this, I am able to sense the similarity, and the similarity right this moment is that for real, we are where we are supposed to be, because whatever it is that we are going to be doing has to do with the way that we have found ourselves through the truth in the turmoil.

We are finding out that we are drawn to where the healing takes place, even as we are still very well in place in those places that physically, we would rather not Be. But, Be where we Are right now we must, because somehow, it is helping to heal who we Are.

Like salt in a wound, or in my case, lime juice in a scrape had whilst pulling limes from the neighbor’s tree…either way, it burns, and either way, it cleanses, and either way, it will not hurt forever, and either way, it will heal.

We go to these places and Be with those who mean the most to us because our souls know that those are those places where we will heal. We still live like humans, in a body, and we still live as humans, living life as fallible creatures, but, we do so also as Souls living lives and learning about who we are, instead of trying to Be who we are not.

The most healing thing…

The most healing thing is now, right now, when it is that we see there in our midst nothing, but everything because in that “nothing” is contained the void which the Universe abhors. By right of quantum physics, that which is empty will get filled. If your life is void of something that truly your heart desires, rather than the thing that, for too long now was gonna be the truth is NOT the truth, that void being filled with more things that hurt…well, you are, right this moment, where it feels like there is nothing left there is this void.

And the void, in the sense that is the science behind it, will be filled, and you get to dictate with what….so, let’s think about that for a moment okay? Let’s think about what we could do with that void, and how we would be able to use it to our best advantage.

Let’s think about the last time that the energy in the middle portion of your belly felt like it does right this moment. I am not there with you, so I cannot see you and you cannot tell me where it is that this warmth, or perhaps this very…intense feeling of resistance…is at in your body. So for your own benefit, think about where it is in your body right this moment that you are having one of these two sensations and when it is that you are having that sensation, what is it that you are thinking about.

There is a better way for every one of us to think the thoughts that we think, but first we have to trust that we can believe those thoughts. SO, the first thing that you have to do is create believable truths about you that apply to you right this moment. You might not be a great artist, or a great musician, or great at that one thing that you want to be great at, but, it does not mean that you won’t ever be. Even though a lot of people in the healing trades tell you that you need to live in this moment (and they are right) what you are not thinking about is that it is okay to be thinking thoughts in that moment. If you don’t think thoughts, then you have no idea of what it is that you might not want to think anymore.

The thing that we are not thinking is that haha….lots of people want us NOT to think, but, our mind does that anyway…think. What I prefer to think of it is, is that you are rewording your thoughts about yourself, and that if you must stay focused and in your thoughts, then why not play with the words that you are thinking those thoughts with and make those words believable as well as at least neutral, if not at least good….(even though we would love for them to be great…I get it I promise…)?

We ought to be thinking, because in order to Be, one must be able to think. To create our lives we must think thoughts conducive to those lives being made. This requires work on our own part. Regardless of what a whole lot of people want to believe, there is not one person on this planet who is not prone to thinking, at one point in their day. I am so very sorry, but to not think, at least at one point in your day, is not giving credit to the idea that you have the capacity to create your world. In order to do that, all of these modern day gurus and people selling it to the world, this thing called the LOA, have it right….you think your existence into being, and the environment it in housed in.

To not think is to not claim responsibility, and neither control of or power over, our own lives.

To not think is to allow the rest of the world to have it in their head that you are thoughtless. To not think means that you are not living completely or fully, even though you might have been taught that thinking is the way that you screwed your life up but I am here to tell you that that is not the truth. It is not that you are thinking too much, but rather, is the kinds of thoughts that you are thinking and more, the way that those thoughts are making you feel.

If you want to heal, then in your thoughts, you have to start thinking things that make you believe that this is what you actually want. This is not about what you are going to get, but, more about the feelings that you feel about you actually getting the things that you want that will lead to the life that you want to have. What you are not told in all of these things is that you have to actually train your thoughts to do this. Only a handful of teachers will tell you this outright (and methinks that I will begin compiling a list of links to these people…stay tuned. I will post them as I find them…) In getting what you want to have, you have to be very clear about what that is.

If it is that you want certain things, it is not the actual thing that you need to call into your life but more, the right situations and synchronicities to happen that will allow these things to happen that help it all Become. Read that again, maybe twice if you must, then you will see what it is that many, many people have NOT done, in relation to calling into being the lives that they want.

You gotta learn to see what is not obvious, and you gotta be willing to see yourself as that thing that you need to be, right this moment, even if in the physical world, you are not what you see there in your mind’s eyes – you are that in your Soul, meaning that you are that in manifest. When you are in manifest, you are learning to appreciate what it is that you are learning to be. When you are learning to be your highest best self, you are unlearning to be what you are no longer, which you have not been in a long time, which is no longer the right fit for the higher self that you are now.

That is a lot to take in, the idea that you are not the same as you once were, and that even in what seems like your broken self, you are still whole, are still able, are still here for a reason. To be in that energy, there are things that you have no reason left to believe about you. There are things that no longer apply and the reason that it feels so…not nice…is because you are, by far, better than you were not too long ago. There are things that you no longer have to deal with and the things that are not there anymore, no matter what they were, that are gone from you are not a part of you. This means that you no longer have to live in that energy any longer.

There are parts of you that won’t ever go away, that are evolved now, that are there and present and waiting to be what they are supposed to be for you, and all you are waiting for is the opportunity, and in those opportunities are the things that you are meant for, in this part of your life, where you are not hurting anymore and you are not having to live up to the things that your ego needed in order for it to live.

You are no longer just that…and you only recently found out that this is the truth of you – that you are not just the body, not just the outer person, but that you are the soul within and that the soul within has grown to who you are now. The only thing that is left is to build from what seems like the rubble that is actually just a collection of mosaic pieces created by and for you.

The Healing Art

Only you know what is your healing art, and only you have the ability to trust it for yourself, so that with it you can create the life that you want. First, though, you have to be willing to heal those parts of yourself that have kept you where you are for what is already too long. It is not because of anything other than that you were not taught that you are allowed to believe in yourself. You were taught to love everyone but that everyone also included yourself.

The healing art that I Am talking about is this thing called being Human and learning to be who you are right this moment.

Only you, at all times, know who you are, even right now, in this moment.

What is your healing art?

Whatever it is, it is right.

No one can do it better than you can

Try it

It takes practice

I promise it works

MEEK = EMPOWERED

tent city pomona

When judging the lives of others becomes the only thing we do, it is time to think about what it is that we are NOT doing for ourselves.

I chose to use a photo of a street here in Pomona.

This is here in Pomona on Commercial Street.

All over this town you will see these things…these tent cities, and they are becoming more and more commonplace throughout the state and the country and even the world. This is proof of our collective ability towards NOT showing any sort of benevolence, any kindness to those who can be thought as “meek.”

Rarely will I use anything….bible …in my blog, unless it directly is connected to the thing that is being written….in my momʻs bible it states that Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth. (Matt. 5:5)

What this means, basically, is that when we are exercising having control over our sense of power and we are not aware of the idea that we are, in that moment, by right of our being able to control that energy….that is called being empowered. 

So, letʻs think about that for a moment, okay?

Letʻs think, seriously, about how…powerful, even as it is silenced by it only being a photo, what you are looking at in this picture truly is.

Can you see yourself having to live this way and still feeling like somehow, anyone cares? Can you bother with these people who, by right of who they are, versus who you are not, might not be the sort of people who you would think you have anything in common with?

Can you bring yourself to your own empowerment, even as you have all the niceties in your life, and see here that these people also do this same thing? You can sit there and think to yourself that it wonʻt happen to you, because of whatever it is that you are choosing to tell yourself, but, in the back of your mind, you know, that at the bottom of it all….it CAN happen to you…and all it takes is the belief that it WILL happen

When I tell you that these people who live in these tents do this whole….empowerment  thing, I am asking you to take a look at the photo and see there that indeed, the answer is yes…

Yes.

Yes they do.

We do not know that they donʻt. All we know is that there are a whole lot of us who do not live like this who pass judgment on them, as though it wonʻt happen to anyone of us.

No, not homelessness…being hardened against things like this, as though these people asked for this to happen to them.

Most folks want to believe that these are the ones among us who fell into this way of life because they did drugs and then committed crimes to make this happen, and no one thinks that maybe it was not that, or perhaps even if it was – what made someone have so much inner pain, pain in the soul, that they would have to relieve that pain with outer substances, just so that for a moment, they could see their lives, and even their own selves, as being somewhat human?

Until you have been in someone elseʻs shoes, you have no clue as to the way that they got there, and you have no way to know what it is that they have been through or what, perhaps they have put anyone else through that would cause it that they would be amongst those who…live in cities, but what kind?

Yeah…these kinds….

Sucks, doesnʻt it?

What really sucks, though, is that there is a significant portion of the populace, NOT of Los Angeles county, neither the state of California, nor the country, even the world…what really sucks is that even as there is plenty of evidence as to how it is that a lot of people end up here…still, we call them blight, and useless, and all of these other things in hopes that the fear that is inside of us….the fear that this could end up being us one day… is just a passing thing.

Nope.

Fear, you see, is the thing that for a long, long time in our lives dictates our lives.

What I mean by that is, when we are young, we are taught some things, and those things are not taught outright, but come to us in moments when we are observing the energetic exchanges between the big people in our lives. We watch them interact and we see what behavior looks like, and all the while, we are, as young as we are, observing and absorbing all of these energies.

When we are much older, we then find ourselves in those same instances, and they come out of nowhere, those things called memories. The person who shows up to the drama between us and others, is not really us in the now, but us the last time that we felt the way we did in the moment that it initially happened. (Reread that….)

This is why, when certain feelings arise, we will state things to our selves that sound like “she made me feel small” and “he made me feel like a child” and in neither case are those statements anything good to hear about oneʻs self – specifically in our own voice in the Now. When we are confronted with people telling us to “stop behaving like a child” we are automatically turned, in our memories and in that moment, back into that child in the emotional sense.

Because prior to that one moment, when we are taken back to that time in our lives, as children, and felt so helpless and small and even incapable of coping with the feelings that we are not able to rectify it all for ourselves because we do not know how to do that. We are not told, perhaps some of you until this moment when you read that….we are not told this because we have to create our way out of that moment, so that later on, the moments that feel just like that one moment can be dealt with better.

Think about it like this – every time those feelings visit you, you have an autopilot  that goes into action that just gets you through the feelings but does not truly address what is there and bothering you. There is an entire population on this planet who go through life not knowing that the thing that makes any one of us feel a certain way, whether that way is really good or really not, is truly what is the thing that we are contending with. You must remember that the way that we bring things and events and lessons even into being, in to our Now moments and that place we refer to as being tangible reality – all of those things that are there and right this moment…you thought those things into your awareness, and now, you are thinking about how you did that.

If you get lost as to how you did that, I will remind you that it did not happen over night, and neither did it happen without help from outside of you. I will also remind you that it was the predominant emotion that caused you to have a feeling and one that was believable that sent the message out into the Universe that told the Universe what it was that you were, at that moment, so very focused on.

And it could have been anything. It could have been your most important relationships, not realizing that you were sabotaging them all by your not believing that people actually love you, just exactly as you are, jacked up, fucked up from the neck up and tore up from the floor, up….yeah – YOU.

It takes a moment to really think about the truth of that last thing that you just read. It took me a very long time to believe that perhaps when I was a small child, that it was not that I was out of hand, but that I was, in that moment, the thing that someone who was one of the big people in my life – maybe it was their moment to not react. Yet, react, to whatever it was that they reacted, they did. They said things that were said out of anger, and perhaps even physically reacted, with a slap to your hiney, calling it discipline.

And years later, while they have forgotten that moment, for some of us, that moment remained very much alive within us. It was a moment when we were confused as to the reason why it was that anyone who was meant to be there for us would suddenly, out of a fit of rage, turn on us, namely when we are so young and so tiny. I write a whole lot about those things that we went through, a whole lot of us, as children, that neither we nor the adults in our lives, maybe, also did not understand what they were doing to us rather than for themselves.

Typically, those times came at times that were traumatic for both them as well as us, but the thing is that they might not, even now, realize that they, too, are traumatized, still, by that moment. They do not realize this yet, because they were never taught to know that sometimes, acting, rather than responding, to anything at all, namely when they were enraged or confused or enraged because they were confused…we wonʻt ever know.

All we do know is that in the Now, we are still affected by that time in our lives, a time when we do not know til this very moment that right now, that Meek part of us is stirring by right of having seen these words and felt the sting of that one very empowering moment when it was that in the Now moment, we see that we were able to make a large person, and one who was meant to be an example, but of what, we do not know til now.

Now is the moment that you get to reclaim your power, and call that moment, the one that turns you into a crying heap or perhaps a raging mess…regardless, now is the moment that you can claim the empowerment that you did not know was yours, til right this moment. All this time, you were thinking that the things that happened then were the things that would dictate who you are forever and ever. Until right this moment, when a stranger and their words came into your awareness and told you a truth that is optional….yeah can choose to not choose it, find this an interesting reading, call me insane and be right about it….

…or you can trust that warmth, that glow in those places in your body that experience this lightness, this feeling in those areas of your Self that perhaps for a long set of years, when someone told you something, and you felt like you were being put down…that feeling, once it is that you are given another option, suddenly becomes optional, too.

That feeling you have, the one that you have created on your own, in this moment called Now, when you realized that it is you who has had the control, the option, the Power to choose  what those moments and those memories will further offer you. You now get to ask yourself what you will do with those memories, and with those feelings of anger and rage and how will you bring them into being for you to know that they exist there but not to hurt you, at least not anymore.

They are there for a reason, and the best reason of all….YOU

This is the only thing that any one of us needs to think – that the best reason for no longer thinking about the things that play over and over in your head and that sound like the things that hurt you, over and over, as much as they have played there – you do not have to believe the bad stuff.

You can believe that the definition of “meek” means weak, or, you can choose to make it make sense to you, and still mean what you read that it means here. You can choose to look it up, choose to attach it to that word “benevolence” and realize that even in that instance, you are empowered, to the point where it would appear that the strongest thing in your communicative efforts is your silence.

You can choose to believe what you will, or you can choose to believe the truths that you have had a hard time believing, all these years.

You can choose to believe the good, because tit is the truth, too.

Think about it…

Be The Aloha

Heartwave

When the world wants you to be something you are not, choose to Be Aloha

#BeAloha

Be Love.

Yes.

BE Love. It is not that hard, seeing as how we are comprised of Love. One wouldnʻt know it from the looks of things right now but I promise, we are all made of Love.

When the world wants you to choose indifference, and when those around you want you to take sides, take the side that is Aloha and take the time to Be Love.

Yeah yeah I know…it sounds all nice and smooshie and all those other icky girlie things that a lot of people think equates to weakness, but the truth of the matter is that Love is the very most powerful and empowering thing that this world and all of humanity knows, even though there are things that happen that make us collectively believe otherwise.

When it seems like the world around you is failing to its own arrogance, to its own need for the wrong sort of power, remember who you are and that you were made from Love, that you are here to share Love and that your place on this planet is to be the example of Love.

As a Hawaiian person, the one thing that I, as a human, as Kahuna Wahine, as an Ordained person, as a student, as the person who I have grown to this point to be and am still becoming, the one thing that I have always known, and the one thing that is the truth that not one of us can deny is that the easiest thing for a whole lot of us to do is to show our love to the world, even if the world in our lives is comprised of but a few people and maybe a dog – that does not matter. If you have one person in your life who loves you and is not you, then you have experienced what it means to Be Aloha. 

It means that to them, and for them, you were the Aloha…Are the manifestation of Aloha within them, the representation of it for them, and for you, you have become the example of what it is to also BE Loved, unfiltered and unflinchingly…

To Be Aloha…

You do not need to be Hawaiian to Be Love, to Be Aloha. No matter what you want to think, you are meant for great things, and all great things begin with Love.

It is the Love within us that will heal us at the individual level, and love from within that is shown to the world that will heal the world, if only we would stop believing that we have to keep on protecting ourselves from the ugly things that we donʻt know will or will not happen. It is no way to live waiting for bad things to happen. I know that in this time in our collective history, there is a lot of bad stuff that we are all waiting for.

We need to stop this practice, and simply Be the Aloha that we all seek and that seeks us out. We need to stop fearing that we are not good enough, remember that we are each and all here for a grander, higher purpose, and just go with our own flow, not minding the idea that there are people here with bad intentions who willingly do things, NOT to exact change in anyoneʻs lives but their own.

We have come to a place and time in our lives when it feels and appears that there is a severe lack of Love, but that is not the case. In fact, there is nothing further from the truth.

The thing that compels us to move forward is never fear, but the Love we have for ourselves and the love that is ours to give to others, namely those who are the closest to us. We are meant to share our love with them, be the Aloha in their lives, so that they may, in their lives, share what we have given to them. This is how this is supposed to be. There are people who want things otherwise, because that is the only way that they know. We are here and meant to show and teach and be that thing that they do not know about, that perhaps they fear and fear because they have lost it, so many times in the past, not even thinking or knowing that the thing that they feel they have no more of actually exists within them.

…it always will  be there, within, this thing called Aloha

Indeed it appears that we are “against” one another, but the truth is that we are terrified of no longer being relevant, and when our personal relevance depends on things outside of ourselves, rather than on the thing that we have and that is alive and well within us and that is actually keeping us alive – that thing that gives us the will to live is NOT material things, and neither how much money a person has, nor how much outer power, but all and only Love, all and only Aloha, all and only the purest, strongest energy that humankind has ever known, will ever know, has the power to produce into eternity.

Actual power does not live on the outside. It is from within. It is the thing that makes us not have a snit when someone pisses us off, and it is the thing that makes us realize that no matter who takes what away from us, the one thing that no one human can ever take away from anyone else is the capacity to Love, to give Love, to Have Love, to BE LOVE. When we understand the way that the Law of Attraction works, for real, we will understand, as well, how it is that we are who creates our reality. Based on the things that are in our collective reality, it is very clear to this Kahuna Wahine that the thing that we have depended on, and the thing that we have been told and the thing that we continue to be told is the truth – that power is outside of our selves, that only those with lots of money have power and that those with all the political and social power are not us – IS NOT THE TRUTH.

We are the ones who make bad people powerful, by giving our attention to their antics. If we could spend half the time loving those who have been wronged versus hating those who are the wrongdoers, we would see, for sure, that indeed, LOVE IS THE MOST POWERFUL AND EMPOWERING ENERGY ON THE PLANET AND IN THE UNIVERSE and sadly, we are not bothering with our finest, highest weapon of mass destruction of ignorance, of hatred, of ambivalent acceptance of things that are not like us, of things that our Tutu Ladies told us were not okay to do, and of things that we name “monster” and fear the raising of such ugliness, again and again, in our lives.

We have the power to elicit change, the power to make this place a peaceful place for us all. The moment that we understand that there is no “Us vs Them” and that WE ARE THE ALL THAT IS is the same moment that we will know that we are safe to stop fearing things we cannot predict and safe to stop keeping ourselves on high alert for the simple fact that indeed, since 9/11, our place in the world, not as Americans, but as humans, has been taken less than seriously, as if who we are is meant to be punished because we have that thing called a choice, that thing called free will – and the powers that be donʻt like this.

Apparently, we are not meant to be free if we are not of a certain skin color, income level, social standing. I say to hell with the social agreement that anyone considered “the 1%” is somehow more powerful than we are. The only powers that they have are the ones that they think they have. I refuse to worry for a few rich people when all around me are the beautiful ones whose agenda is all and only Aloha, is all and only kupaʻa (solidarity), is all and only lokahi (unity) is all and only ALOHA (LOVE).

When freedom that has been afforded all of us, freedom that is bring me your tired, your weak….and that freedom suddenly and one day becomes up for sale to whoever can line the pockets and keep the secrets of a few dirty old “Christian” men…when things that happen that are happening now in our country, happen almost everyday, and we sit and believe that we are powerless to do anything about it, this is where our singular ability to LOVE RATHER THAN HATE that which is different than we are becomes all too important. 

It is time, now, really, that we all come together, imagine a place of peace and harmony and a place where it is safe to #BeAloha, so that our kids and their kids and their kidsʻ kids can know that it was because we cared enough to make it known that no matter how many bad guys there are on this planet, there are several tens of thousands of good people to their very few – do the math.

Our kids need to know that no matter what famous person, by right of the color of our kidsʻ skin and due to the ignorance that these few moronic men in high office seems to think is “only words”…when this sort of thing happens like it keeps on happening, this is when we are being called to Love, called to #BeAloha

We can do like those in perceived power want us to do, which is to run and hide and be afraid, but that is no way to live, and they know this.

Or, we can #BeAloha, and be okay, and live our lives as if we are surrounded by Love and by that thing that we do not realize we are, have always been….

Love…

Be The Love, the Be The Change you wish to see in the world.

#BeAloha…

What you cannot see, know, or hear : Some Words About Your Currently Tumultuous Life

paramex_end_the_pain

We who inhabit Planet Earth, at this time, are finding out that life, at this present moment, is quite tumultuous. Here are some words to explain what you are going through lately.

Tumult.

According to Websterʻs Dictionary, it means “a state of commotion, excitement, or violent disturbance.” 

Right now, and I can state this as being the truth and also as being the common thing among human beings on the planet – life, right this moment, for a lot of us, feels very harsh. Lots of us cannot figure out what it is that we did so wrong that would cause all of these things to happen in our lives. Many of us are experiencing changes that we never thought would be part of our awareness and neither that which we call “daily life.”

This is not something that I care to much trifle with outside of the idea that this is being written with the idea in mind that no one knows, really, what is going on in the minds of others, let alone the lives of others, but, here we are, none the less, surviving this crap everyday.

But we want to live, donʻt we??

Yes.

Of course, and this will strike a few of my regular readers a bit…oddly..but, this turmoil we each are experiencing is living, or, at least is building it to be that thing that we call “living well.”

Reread that if you must, if for nothing more than to simply have a shot at wrapping your head around the idea that you are here, in this body and on this plane for a specific purpose. That specific purpose is tied directly and intimately to the turmoil that you are going through right now. The turmoil, even as much as it hurts and sucks, is meant to polish the each of us so as to ready us for the thing that we were meant to do in this lifetime whilst traipsing the planet as humans. You do not have to believe me but, from the research that I, myself, am constantly conducting in the realm of human thought as it pertains to Spirit and ethereal “stuff,” the only thing that I can see and sense, with all of this…huge change..happening, is that we are being primed for the reality that we are creating through this crap.

The reality that we are creating through all the crap

Letʻs play with a few thoughts here, shall we?

Letʻs pretend that you have this dream life that you have seen in your thoughts for years and years, and that you could only see the end result of what you want to happen.

Now letʻs pretend that for a very long while of your being in your body and things being lovely for years and years and then one day the shit begins to hit the fan. Suddenly those things that were there and common and everyday in your own life are no longer there, no longer common and no longer everyday things that happen. In fact, some of those things that are happening you are not able to figure out how, and more – why – with everything that you have done in your life for other people – how could things be as shitty as they have been for the last….I donʻt know…on the whole – say…five years, in the collective sense.

Understand that within that five years is also contained the fact that there have been people who have been going through things for, on average, two years, before they finally begin to have the strength to at least look at what is possible in all of the chaos. Understand, too, that if you are not aware of your own evolution, and not at least savvy to the idea that everything, including you , evolves, then you really need to pay attention LOTS more. In fact, there are a lot of us who are, right now, unable to understand why it is that the things that you are going through are so very painful. That is because you were given this opportunity to make things right, in terms of realigning your soul with your purpose, and in doing so, all of the lessons that you either ignored in the past, or, perhaps the ones that you are meant to learn in the future – all those things are coming in to your life so that you can prepare for the next level of living.

As much as that does not make sense – that we have to go through some shit just so that we donʻt have to offer ourselves up to the gods and goddesses of bullshit (theyʻre actually called “lessons”) – when it is explained in a more detailed way and even though some of us cannot see past the thing that we are going through, many more of us, even as we, at first, may be confused by this – think in terms of things “coming out in the wash,” or perhaps like a child who has outgrown his or her favorite clothes. While we know that we loved those things and those ways of being, we also know that at this very moment in time, in comparison to who we each were just those short five years ago….we each have grown in the soul, enough to have to experience some discomfort in our lives, sometimes to the point of what we call “insanity.”

Yet, when we think about it, life, itself, is a maddening thing. It is not a game, even as it feels like it is, from time to time and more now lately than in the past – it is a challenge.

We were not ever made to think any other way than that.

Sure, some of us humanoids have it kinda easier than it appears the rest of us do, but that means that they either have not yet begun to go through what I can only call their “upward spiral that must first start downward,” or, they are already done going through it. You will recognize these people almost immediately once it is that you have read through this writing more than only one time. You can sense their calm, even though you can also sense their erratic inner lives. You can see the pain on their faces, as much as you can also see the sense that everything is going to be okay – we just have to brace ourselves a little bit longer and by the time all these turmoils have been seen to and dealt with, we will not realize that the reason for the turmoil was to actually help us get to being who we truly are.

If all this sounds like nonsense, ask yourself if you have ever been in the situations that you are finding yourself in these days, and ask yourself if you are more aware now (you might call it guardedness) and ask yourself if truly, even though back there was lots easier, would you be able to look back there, given that ease, and through recalling what it was that was your turmoil then, and the very turmoil that spawned this current energy of it – given all of the people who you have met and who have, even for a split second, changed your thought about any one thing at all, and now you are far wiser because of that – would you be able to trade all of the wisdom that you have created for yourself, all of the people who are now nearer and dearer to you than lots of others who pretended to be there for you in the past….would you be able to say goodbye to them, knowing that you are just outside of comfort, and that the only thing left is to see things in two ways: a physical reality, as well as a spiritual knowing?

Yeah…me, neither.

I could not, would not, cannot even dream to be who I was five years ago. I cannot be that scared person again, too afraid to fail better than I have in the past. I cannot be that woman who took orders from other people just to keep herself safe and what little of her sanity was left, in full tact. I cannot be that person again, because that person does not fit into my life right now. That person was too emotionally attached in a very bad way to a bad person who only recently was I able to make it known to him that for years, he made it so that I was the one who would take the fall for every sin he committed against me, personally, in the form of domestic abuse.

I cannot be that person again, because that person is not the one with the higher sense of integrity, and that person is not able to see beyond the tangible to the spiritual reason as to why that person did not survive the change which spawned the growth and produced this me.

That Person in Your life…

The one thing that no one tells us about, when we are younger and when we are learning to be our highest best selves is that there are three ways of becoming wise:

1 – Hard Knocks (and they will continue to happen til we learn from them)

2 – We gain insight (but this is after we have gone through a series of harsh stuff)

3 – It comes naturally, because we chose, all at one time, to do both 1 and 2

Further, the other thing that I have become aware of is that there are three ways that we are given this wisdom, and of the three, only one of them truly helps us evolve:

1 – We are taught how to pay attention

2 – We are told how to pay attention

3 – We learn to pay attention

Paying attention….it is a learned thing, really

The one thing that I have noticed over the years is that when someone else is successful at doing something, they believe that we are all going to be as successful at that very same thing. This is not the truth. We learn differently, meaning that when we perform what it was that we learned how to do, we are not going to do it in any other manner than the way which we learned how to. Recently I had a conversation with someone who I thought we were way closer than I found out that we were. If it is that that person wants to not talk to me anymore, that is fine – that is her choice to make.

However, what I got from that conversation, and a conversation that has stayed with me since it happened, was that the truth of humanity is that we expect what we do and what is successful for us to work for everyone. This, again, is not the truth. When it was presented to me in the manner that it was, which was to question my motives and not bother with the methods that my condition will currently allow, I began to, at first, argue back. Then within a very few short moments, instead of lambasting that person, I chose to question them. This is likely the reason that she and I are not talking – because one of us is still trying to rectify what the other said and that was the truth. I am not stating that what that other person said was a lie. What I am stating is that the way that she learned, which was very abusive on the part of the people who were teaching her how to be herself (and up until lately, did a very poor job at it) is not the same way that I learned what was going on at those times in our lives when we were, at the same time, presented with things that our own minds, at the young ages that we were, could not wrap themselves around.

Let it be well known, right this moment, that what is perceived in some cultures as being discipline is often times abusive in another one. When it is that the perception of that discipline is understood by the person who it was enacted upon, no matter how long ago it was done to them, that personʻs perception, unless and until they have something that counters that memory – that person is ALWAYS going to go back to the last good thing in their head that worked.

I donʻt know about anyone else, but, the last thing that anyone “formerly abused” needs to do is believe that they are going to be able to understand how one personʻs method of healing is self-taught, and anotherʻs, taught by someone else and namely through violent means.

Where we go wrong as humans is believing, again, that the way that we did something is going to be the same way that other people do things and that those things and methods and ways of being and doing work for everyone and the truth is that they might not work at all and in some cases, like my own, may make things much worse. To expect someone else to do things any way but their own is not only wrong, but it has the capacity to wreck them further.

The other problem with this is that we live in a world where people are already fake enough, already trying to pass off on others the idea that what we are doing is the best model and method, because what we did and worked for us…we assume will work for all others, as well and just as well as it did for us. What we do not think about is that we are each and all different, and what may work for one of us will not, no matter how much we try to make those things work – do anything for us, at all. It will cause us more frustration, and will cause us not only to question what we are doing, but also who we are for real.

Who we are for real is not dependent upon what other people tell us. Who we are rests neatly and squarely on our own shoulders. Yet, sometimes, and with certain people, that message falls upon deaf ears, because yeah – no one wants to think about their successes not being the thing that can be the downfall of anyone else. You cannot expect that others will have the same results that you did. The other thing that makes me really wonder why it is that people will talk to life coaches and then when it comes to the point where the things that the coach taught them is not being retained, that client blames the coach.

The reason that I believe those things fail is not about the coach, and has everything to do with how we each and all respond to negative energy.

Negative energy is that thing we all try to avoid, but in that avoidance we are robbing ourselves of the ability to get through things that inevitably happen to all human beings, no matter what. We are here to learn, not only to be taught, and we are here to tell our story, not only be told what it is by witness of other people. We each and all are very different from one another. The expectation that we are, on our own, going to be able to handle what comes our way and using someone elseʻs methods rather than realizing that they are telling us that they have gone through the same thing for the simple purpose of allowing us to know that by our own witness account, things do get better.

We just have to remain open in the awareness that is currently ours and respond, rather than react to it all. The only one way to do that is to learn from the past, the same things that are presented to us each and all now, and remember that we are the ones who are meant to shine through that turmoil, the ones who are meant to stop the tumult by our own creative nature and through knowing, rather than only believing in our own selves, that what we are experiencing and also witnessing is our lives unfolding before our eyes.

Do not be too sure that this…turmoil…is here forever, because it is not. It is here long enough for us each and all to learn how to deal with it so that we can get through it, not only this time, but every time that happens in the future. Forget about all the well-meaning words of advice and think for yourself, using those words of advice only as a reference to your own self-taught and learned manners and ways of being. Do not bother with the things that worked for anyone else UNLESS you are talking about things in the tangible world that are here and already exist and need the human touch to be repaired instead of the ethereal touch that allows us to heal.

We are souls contained in bodies. We are meant to be here, learn who we are, become who our purpose and mission needs us to be. We do not know what our place is until we have gone through some shit. Right now, we are going through shit on the collective level, telling me that there is a lot of stuff that people have hung on to for whatever purpose it was that they chose to. That is no oneʻs judgment to make on them. We all handle our shit our own way, once we understand that it is the only way that is going to work for us at the personal and singular level.

Much of the self-work going on at this time in our lives is meant to take place, at the level of being that it is taking place, and all because we are being readied for our next level of living and life, which is all and only good, based on the level of crap that we have, as a collective whole, had to endure over this last decade.

Just remember that you are not perfect, that your way is the only way that is going to work for you, specifically, and that trying to make everyone else happy is never going to happen because we cannot keep the entire world happy so long as there are lessons to learn by every single one of us on this planet. So, since it is that this lifetime and every lifetime can be thought of as a school for learning, always assume that you are learning something about you, about your purpose, about who it is that you are meant to teach, to learn from, and to help heal themselves as well as you are doing for you, right in this tumultuous moment and every other one, as well….

Ask yourself, the next time you have the thought in your head the reason why it is that we seem to continue doing the maddening thing of repeating our actions in hopes that those actions will take away the lesson that we are here to learn? What is it in that particular set of actions caused by a particular set of thoughts that any one of us will continue to think is the truth that has not changed, even though we know that with all else that has changed, this, whatever this would be, is also subject to change and the likelihood that it has already changed and you are not yet seeing that it has?

What, my friends, is it that you are learning right this moment that is able to help you understand your own personal turmoil?

Turmoil is the hint.

Life is the teacher….and the lessons learned are ours to share with the world, once it is that we have become, ourselves, the teacher as well as the student.

A Higher Calling …What’s Yours?

triple goddess blue and purple

Do you know the reason why you are going through everything that you are going through right now?

The truth will, or maybe will not, surprise you.

The truth is that at some point in your life, you asked, from the middle of your soul, for things to be different for you, and you might have even believed that you were deserved of better things. You might have watched something called The Secret and after watching it, you might even have gone out and tried out what you saw and perhaps even manifested something for yourself.

The truth is that what you are going through, and the idea that it is in your life, is NOT something only that you have manifested into being, but, is also a lesson that you have called into being and that lesson is connected to what you do and what you do in this lifetime is connected to who you are and your mission and purpose in this lifetime. I say it a whole lot, specifically to those who I coach through my Awareness training – all of everything that we go through, specifically if it harms us and makes us hurt in the soul and is something that seems to have been part of who we are from the time that we were kids…that is what your Divine Purpose is…your Divine Purpose Is your Higher Calling.

What Is Your Higher Calling?

The way that I figured out was my Higher Calling was to step back from my own life and see what the running theme of every lesson that I have learned to this point, and mainly the lessons that hurt me, very dearly, and the ones that somehow I end up using as an example in my work in this world.  Case in point – when I thought about who I wanted to coach, after some thought and time, I figured out that it is not the “how” that we are going to get something done, but rather and only why.

You will not know what is your calling just by the simple means by which you have chosen to do things in the past. You will get there better by figuring out why you want to pursue what it is that you cannot get out of your head. Whatever it is that you are thinking about, even if it is your current job and you have come up with things that you would like to implement in terms of what you do in your duties….that is you answering the Higher Calling of what your purpose is. 

Your purpose in connected to the thing that you have to go through, and by “go through” I mean the things that you have had to deal with and that hurt your soul. 

As much as I hated going through everything that I have gone through over the course of my life, and as much as I can understand why it is that some folks – even those closest to me – do not realize the reason why I do not do things in the manner which the rest of the world does – I went through those things, unbeknownst to me, because I had to. 

Yes…had to

In fact, when we all can’t find a way out of the things that we feel like we have to go through, it is because we have to go through them in order to level up to the thing that we want to happen for us, or, at least will get us that much closer to that thing. We have to get through things that suck because that is what is required of us to rise up to where we need to be. Where we need to be is up to us, which is the most confusing thing to us all if it is that we have been taught that the only way that we can get what we want is to beg your mom’s big scary god guy for it…I know all about that one and how it is that it does more damage than much else.

triple goddess hula

…and really, the way that we know that we are “leveling up” is because we will, at those times, look out into the nothing, or up into the sky through the ceiling, and ask the question, through tears or through the proverbial gnashing of teeth….a one word query:

“WHY????”

It is because I know that the reasons that I have for doing anything at all is not connected to how I intend to make those things happen, but rather and only why they need to happen in my life. Once it is that we are very clear on the reason why we want something in our lives, the how just happens. Bear in mind that the “how” does not happen to us -but is already in place. The how is connected to how we technically and tangibly make things come into our being. So, when I state that we need to know why we want something, someone, somewhere …anything….at all..in our lives…the best, fastest way to get those things there is to know why  we are passionate about that one thing.

Knowing how to do anything is “of the body,” and in order to create anything, we have to know why we are so passionate about anything. I am very passionate, not only about people becoming healed and whole again, but, very dearly passionate about what I do in terms of revealing the Truths of our own inner selves, lives and worlds and that is only and all about who we are in relation to our Purpose….also and better known as A Higher Calling.

A Higher Calling

We are not born knowing what our purpose is.

Believe it. It is the truth.

Not one of us knows what our purpose is. We have to sort of figure it out on our own. There is nothing that someone who can be considered a “guru” can charge enough to make it so that you do not have to go through what you have to go through. Adding to that, there are a lot of “gurus” on this planet who want to make us believe that we do not know what our purpose is and that we will not know what it is until our life is passing before our eyes in the minutes prior to our crossing over. (Been there. Done that. I survived it…and at that point in my life, I thought I knew what my purpose was and was arrogant about it…please keep reading…)

Our purpose and finding it out is NOT something that is meant for us to guess til we leave our bodies. Our purpose is embedded in the things that we go through, the things that we got through, the things that we will still go through. At every juncture in our lives, and at every turn that brings us to a place that feels like harm (and typically is), those are the times that we are being made better, stronger, tougher, clearer, higher purposed..with each and every heart ache.

We go through everything we do so that we can go out into this world and let the world have our words in terms of how we survive the things that we do. Some of us begin early in life, with major losses, and many of us continue to go through things from the time that we are children. I was one of those children. I was not allowed to do a whole lot of things, was not allowed, for the most part, to have what is known as an original thought.

This is the reality that a whole lot of us go through – the idea that we think thoughts that are ours and original, but, as children, our parents censor us …and it is not their fault that they are doing this – they are being parents.

I get it.

I am certain that all of us who are called “mom” or “dad” gets it.

It is at the times in our lives when we hurt the most is when we are supposed to pay the most attention, but we don’t, and we don’t because at those times we are very dearly in an energy of heightened emotional stuff. The emotionality of things is where the gold is in all of our lessons, but we do not know this. We are taught, instead, that we are supposed to express our emotions, and we do. What we are not taught is what to do with those things that we have learned from those times that hurt us the very most – we are not taught why we go through things that hurt so bad.

I can only speak for myself when I state that the way that I have chosen to utilize the pain and every horrid thing that I have experienced is simply to research it, study it, link it to neuro-cognition, learn to use it to teach others how to learn what is their purpose and more, to create the way that the world will benefit from the goodness borne of the things that have shattered us in a gazillion tiny, cutting pieces.

Think of it in terms of this – it is at the very lowest times in our lives that we are being made perfect in our imperfections, and in those imperfections are created the future. The times in our lives that hurt us, that spot weld the things that we learn from and the people who we learn them from in our heads, hearts, souls and memories – even though those times and those things sucked – they taught us.

They taught us in the most hurtful ways, and they taught us in the way that only we would be able to learn – from our own lives. They taught us who we were not by giving us constant reminders of the things that hurt us, things that are not who we are and not what we are about and those things are thrown in our faces, everyday, day after day, until we end up figuring out that all along, what we were asking for was there for us, but was not obvious and neither was it made that way – obvious.

The Harm that Refines

Yeah….

You read that correctly – the harm that refines us.  It is like firing metal to make it a blade and like sandblasting the crud that collects around tiled inner perimeter of a pool caused by an owner just not paying attention to the crud, and when the crud is gone, there in its place is the restored manner which those surfaces are supposed to be, and they are the same surfaces – and sometimes they are made better.

Thinking in these terms we can also see that when we are doing what we are supposed to be doing, even including the things that made us suffer through all of these things that we go through. We can see that in these times in our lives, we somehow, through it all, made it fine and made it out alive. And that realization is also part of all of these things, because that realization is meant to give us guidance in terms of who we are and who we are, as we each and all ought to know, is connected to our very Divine Purpose.

We are all here for a purpose that is Divine and is created by us long before we are imparted into this lifetime. Our purpose is the thing that makes our soul sing, and makes our lives feel like even though they might be difficult, they are worth the everyday push towards our highest best selves, our higher calling…

What are you dealing with right now in your life? What are you doing everyday to make it at least feel a little less scathing?

What have you determined is your Higher Calling?

What, my friends, is your Higher Purpose?

Think about it…

Shifting Paradigms

Map of brain.jpg

Change (typically) occurs in the paradigm of things.

PARADIGM : late 15th century: via late Latin from Greek paradeigma, from paradeiknunai ‘show side by side,’ – ‘beside’ + deiknunai ‘to show.’

“To show side by side”…when we think about this definition, or at least when I think about it and the way that part of the dictionary’s definition of the word is that it is meant to show us the patterns we live in, I get happy, but, then in remembering that it is up to a person and their own free will to make that choice – to see the paradigm shift…or not?

That really is the question, namely when we are talking about us human type beings creating a life that we Love and that those who we Love the very most can also be part and party to. If we think in terms of the patterns of our lives and we can see the pattern without the people who are (or were) representative parts of who we are in manifest (be those things either good or bad – either way it is a hint as to where we each and all are in terms of our soul’s growth…please, keep reading…), we can see, too, where it is that our patterns are showing us and have always shown us a whole lot about ourselves, our lives and where it is that our most challenging times are and indeed, where history, and according to our natal charts, will be (and yes, I CAN read and interpret your natal chart in terms of personality and how to deal with yours and that of others…hit me up.)

When we are feeling like we are inside of an energy that we do not want more of, we have to remember, too, that we can change that thought, which will ultimately change the feeling and the energies that we are surrounded by at all times. The thing that we are not ever bothering with is that we are constantly seeing ourselves as being apart from things, when really, we are the very middle core of things when they happen in our lives. When we think that we have no power and that we are weak and never to be strong again, we are not aware that we are being taught, not aware that we are being shown, through who we are supposed to be trusting the very most – ourselves. And not only that – when we realize just exactly how much power we truly do have, it is like we have awaken from a very perilous, very …tiring…nightmare of belief that has been in place for far too long, as is.

The sad part is that for the bulk of our lives, we have been manipulated to believe that on our own, we are not strong enough to change things (even though these same people who tell us that we are not strong enough to change things are the very ones who typically NOT who willingly will help….they’ll dispense advice that they, themselves, would not ever take…and then get offended when those in despair do not take their advice). We believe ourselves to be the actual situation, rather than just the most significant part of the whole. When we are “in our energies” we are the strongest that we are going to be, ever. When we are focused on things that make us feel better and be happy, we are in the best place, emotionally, to be able to at least start our own healing process.

But, the trick is that we have to remember to not be so stuck “in” the ugliness that we cannot ever believe that that which has been given as a lesson is also that which is something that, once it is learned, we will never have to deal with in the same way that we do right now in this moment. 

And “in” is a strange little word, too, when it is thought about in terms of the word intuition, according to Dr. Loretta Standley, and my thought about her definition regarding our intuitive selves.

Since we are naturally intuitive, about everything, then it makes sense to this particular geek girl that it is less the shift in consciousness that makes things grievous than it is that our human propensity towards growing too comfortable and complacent in the boundaries of our lives and boundaries that we have grown to think of as being permanent, as being the only pattern in our lives, and most of all, a pattern that, if we paid good attention to throughout our lives, we would see where, in our lives and the boundaries we create for ourselves within them, where there is and has been a shift in the paradigm of things.

This includes every part of it…the very all of our “things”on the personal, spiritual and emotional levels – we are not aware of the patterns in our lives, and when it comes to a place in life where we feel like we are failing in every part of it, and when our efforts towards rebuilding those parts of our lives feels like all we are doing is building things up so the ether through others can tear it all apart, are the very times in our lives when we have to consider that something else is happening.

That something else is happening is not a bad thing….at all….and the moment that we can address this…”something else” and see it as a tool towards the re-creation of our own lives, beginning with our own Selves being the beautiful wreck of a human being made whole, even as said same human can only see themselves as this wreck. What we have been taught our whole lives long is that “being a wreck” is somehow a bad thing, when really, being that same wreck is a tool in our box of things to create the future.

Yes…create….

What? Did you believe that POOF! In seven days some dude wearing a robe and having a bearded face and calling himself ‘god’ was the creator of everything on this planet?

Ummm…yeah….not in this minister’s grimoire…please, keep reading…

We have to consider that maybe it is not that Spirit hates us, but instead is that Spirit knows, as She always knows, that we are no longer needful of the things, the situations, the everything that applied to those times in our lives when it seemed that everything was gorgeous, that we used to do even though the skills we used to make us all that we made ourselves to be, at those times in our lives, is that same thing now that is going on in this shared awareness of ours.

When it feels like things are out of our control, the thing that we are not doing, as I have found out personally through my own attempts at making things right in accordance to what they used to be like for me just about…oh…say ten years ago now….are not the things that we need to re-create the past. The past cannot survive the future, because the past cannot rebuild itself, even as we can replicate it – it is not the same, because you, yourself, are not the same, and the things that applied then are not the same things that apply now- think about it. The past was nice and was a lesson, at least for me, and I learned well enough to know that my own insecurities are those things that even as I feed them wrong at times, in the time that has passed since 2006, and with the person who I have grown to become at this point in my life, I find that who I was would not fit into who or where I am at this time in my life.

And my proof is the people who are most prominent in my life…my David (Muah! I Love You…you make me shine), my Jeremy, Gracie and Joshua (my kiddos…I Love You Guys…you make me proud)…my Spirit Sisters (hey guys…my life would be dull without you ladies…I Love You) (And folks, there …those three entities – this is an example of practicing gratitude….yup…that simple)

Please…keep reading…

Ten Years Ago….

Ten years ago it was April, 2006. I lived in the high desert. I had lots of money but it was not money that I’d worked for – it was money that my kids’ dad inherited.

Looking back now, even while that large chunk of change made things feel easier, and even thought, at that time, I had the best hula studio in the high desert and was making a decent amount of money, I see now the thing that that particular time in my life taught me.

I had friends, and I had a business, and I was in college then, too. My knee was not injured as much (and neither for the same reason) as age and my being clumsy over time has caused it to be. My kids were not too exposed to the thing that I had been in terms of the elders in their lives (OTHER than their father) and I still got along with the majority of my extended family.

Fast forward to now, and none of those things are even a thought unless I bring them up. If I bring them up, it is a trigger for me and causes me to have to live in the moment that has passed, and from my own experience – it does us no good at all to live in the past, to continually bring up in our minds what may well have seemed easier, but, the other ease is that ten years ago, we were not as …refined…in our thinking, even if that refinement does not come across in our daily lives – we have become lots more savvy about the things that we see going on in our lives.

Yet…

We don’t see that this shift in the collective paradigm is what is happening right now, and for the life of a lot of us, we are not looking at the bigger, global and Universal picture of things.

We are not looking at the fact that when our consciousness shifts, singularly as well as collectively, we are ignoring the things that are going on…things involved in the process of change….and we are calling them what we would in accordance to the level of comfort and clarity that we have in that moment. If we are looking through the eyes of the soul at the thing in front of us and calling it a mess is one thing, but if we are looking at it all and only calling it a mess, we are not also seeing the thing that it also is, which is the evidence needed to show us where we have been, why we have been relevant at certain times in our lives, and why, right now, it might feel like we are anything BUT relevant in our own lives and minds.

Relevance is totally NOT up to the world to decide, because I have learned over time that we are who creates us as being awesome or other than awesome, and what it is that we have built up all around us is NOT the thing that we should be looking at and really – getting the things that we need in order to do our lives on the daily basis is also NOT what we are supposed to be looking at, because that, alone, will never ever give us the instance of what has wrecked up our lives in the emotional sense as much as we can ourselves.

In an example, for the longest time ever, I felt like what was said of me by anyone, good or bad, was the truth, and it well may have been the truth but it was not ever MY truth.

Such as…

It is not my Truth that I am evil,just ’cause someone else’s opinion is that – in fact, I am a very good human being and an awesome Soulful chick

It is not my Truth that I am bad, just because someone else did not agree with my methods of doing things – in fact, where I am concerned and where the thing that I do for the people who I love the most, I know that I am doing the right things and in the right way.

It is not my Truth that I am a hurtful person, just because someone else wants to believe that this is what I would do to anyone at all – in fact, it is not my way to purposely hurt anyone else

When we choose to believe what others say of us, versus what it is that we know is our own Truth, we end up hurting because someone else made it that way. When we choose to at least be neutral and choose to give ourselves a better chance at healing through knowing and even creating new truths to define who we are, and when we choose to STOP listening to other peoples’ truths and STOP making them ours, just because someone else said so, it is not up to us to make them change their minds about us unless we know for SURE that what is going on is something far more sinister, such as trying to defame and slander anyone else at all.

This does not mean that the good truth about us as is offered by anyone else is not the truth – you have to be able to really discern that about you, have to really stop your thoughts, get in front of them and ask questions of you – I spent the last ten years asking myself if I had done things that warranted my being abused, and my answers were all the same.

And my answers always gave me my proof.

Not only was I very nice to everyone, not only was I able to share with others those things and ways of being that would tell anyone at all that I really DO operate from a place of integrity, but always, I gave more than I had to, because that’s just how I roll. Throughout my lifetime, I have managed to create my own manner by which I can solve and issue and then check my own results against the ongoing recording in my head that is my own voice repeating all these untruths about me to me and that were delivered by someone else who was, themselves, at that time, likely in a whole lot of pain themselves.

In algebra, this is called “solve and check” and typically, I do not like mathematics but when it comes to explaining things in this manner, I have only that to tell you all…that in order to solve what it was that was the expression of someone else’s beliefs, we have to check ourselves before allowing the words and believed truths of others to further damage and wreck ourselves.

And in all of this…awareness training and awareness shifting….the one thing that we are not even bothering to think about is that in the middle of all of this is the answer, and that we do not realize that we are the answer. This answer part of us comes the day that we choose to replace everyone else’s bullshit with our own beautiful truths about who we are, what we are, and all that we have been and ever will be. This is not left up to anyone else at all.

This is our part – the creation of the new self from the rubble we perceive as our lives, and how dare ANYONE try to take this massive opportunity at creation away from us?

Why on earth would anyone at all want to believe that anyone else who claims to love us unconditionally would also want us to hurt by means of their measure of “help”?

The better question is to ask our own selves why we are willing to believe the shitty things that other people tell us we are according to them, when what we know as the beauty that we are is the actual Truth of us, because we are who created it?

Why is it that we give away who we are, empower other people to make us believe that it is they – not we – who matter the most in the re-creating of our lives?

When we allow the voices of the uglinesses of the past to dictate the way that we feel about ourselves, and we know that way back there is never going to change and know that we had a great time back there from time to time, what we cannot do is relive that, and if we did and we ended up reliving something like that, it is my own request as the healer that I am that we each and all wanna go back there, knowing that all of the things that we learned from that time until now….those things cannot be unhad, and those things cannot be anything other than the lesson brought by the pain.

I cannot change having been abused, but I can change how I feel about what I went through and telling myself the truth and knowing that none of the abuses that I was made to believe I deserved, by anyone at all, including the adults in my life when I was a child were my cause….while it won’t change the past for me, and while it is that that  memory will always be there, I have learned, on my own, that the things that I went through then were the things that, to this point, made me who I am. While having this very good memory sometimes makes me really, really sad, what it does for me (as it ought to) is also reminds me of who I am, of who I have always been, and that person is not a bad, ugly, evil soul, by any means.

Your own organic Truth about You is a fucking beautiful thing

I promise you, guys…it is so not what you have taught your brain to think and your mind to believe. It is much better than this …shit…going on right now.

I promise ….

I promise you, as much as I promise anyone at all, and even as though I promise that “I could be wrong, but, I don’t feel like I am…” and “this ain’t gonna be easy, and it ain’t gonna be kind,” but I know, after having gone through and endured a lifetime’s worth of harm brought to me by others, and in this time of my life, I KNOW when it is that I, for my own health, safety, and sense of Being…I am VERY WELL AWARE and able to bail out, at least these days, that is, long and far before I have to figure out a way to heal myself, yet again, because I chose to trust ANYONE ELSE at all and chose, instead, to go with the feeling that I have and the ….soul within me…because neither lies to me.

And yeah…this is totally the way, for about three months now, that I have chosen to do this….being a Crafty woman stuff…for myself -to go with the gut feeling, then to question it by comparing it to the rest of everything that has ever been done or said or felt or emoted…indeed, I have created my own way of learning what I must in the moment. It is a learned skill, as all are – to be able to discern the Truth of me, as set forth by others, and every time, my gut, my feelings, my emotional self tells me the Truth of things, not only about myself, but, the others involved.

Seriously….once you have finished reading this, you will have a better understanding of what, exactly, is going on in the cosmos, and perhaps to that end, you will see this strife as being the tools needed, for some, to repair what is the damage done to their memories and the things and people who they love the most, and for others, it will become somewhat of the outline they will be able to follow so as to rebuild the company they each and all call “Myself.”

For us all, it will give us the truth of things as they are, will give us a starting point from which to create the beautiful future that we see, and the future that we see that is created with others…

And yeah….all we really have to do, to begin this process of being more aware of our own selves, our own motives, our own lives….is Believe in what it is that we so dearly want in our lives. 

Seriously….just do like Cher says and BE-lieve!

REVOLUTION (NOT Revelations-Yeesh!)

SOVEREIGNTY

As history repeats itself, we must stand in our collective power, and never allow the fear brought by the harm from the past become the thing that rules us.

“You say you want a revolution, well, you know, we all wanna change the World…”

(The Beatles’ Revolution)

You who read this blog regularly had to have known that this one was coming. No matter how fearful many of us are, the truth of the matter is that we now have this moment in time, in history, that all of us were and are a part of. No matter how much we might not like what has happened, and no matter how dearly afraid any one of us is, the bottom line is that a lot of us are refusing to be afraid.

We are choosing, instead, to be brave, to rise up and to become part of what so clearly this now is – A Revolution, and to hell with the book of Revelations, because what no one who listens to that rhetoric is thinking about is that this is our do-over, this is our chance, and our time, to stand up, make a noise, “Metal Horns Up” for all of the rest of us who have come to that point in our very lives that the only thing that we really want is to get along with each other. And if no one else wants that, then to hell with them – we don’t need them anyway.

Fear of the Unknown

This is a huge thing right now, but, what we do not know, we cannot fear, and what we are not thinking about is that we have this collective energy, right at this moment, where it feels like every tiny little thing that we say or do or want to say or want to do has some sort of lasting impact, if on anyone at all, our very weary and singular selves.

We have been made to be afraid, to not want to protect that which is our own. This time, right in this moment, yes – beginning today – is that magical moment in time when you come to realize that what weirdos like me have been saying for quite some time now has been the truth: One day, it was going to happen – we were going to get what was coming to us, in terms of using our most important tool of all – our voices. 

It was not about the things that are going on in this world, right this moment, and as I write this. It was not about what everyone else was and is doing right now, was not ever about anything more than showing the very all of us that we have got a LOT of work to do, have a lot of thinking those thoughts of “if I could do just one thing, could perform one damned miracle, what would it be?”

And have we not, at this point in history, up to this point – have we not all and already had the enough of what we are told we are going to do, enough of what we ought to think, enough of who is in charge of who, enough of all of this bullshit that keeps other, unworthy people, in charge of what it is that we are, by our right as human beings and the idea that we are all born into this lifetime with certain, unalienable rights – they are called human rights. No one wants, it seems, for other humans who are not just like they are to get ahead. The reason that this is is because if someone else gets ahead, it means that we are, somehow, lacking and lesser than others.

The time for this thinking is over with. It was done with because there still are, on this planet, people with a superiority complex, which is partnered with their own inner and seething inferiority complex, and the one that has caused multitudes of humans, all over the world, to stop and think about the truth of right this moment.

“You tell me that it’s evolution, well, you know…we all want to change the world…but when you talk about destruction, don’t you know that you can count me out?”

The way that we have been taught, for generations, is the way that we get what is needed in our lives and for the collective, is to bully, to control, to take and to steal, and then, blame those who were robbed for being too weak to defend themselves. This is wrong, guys. This is wrong on so many levels and we have been living in this decrepit energy for far too long now…say, since the 1700’s (had to throw it in there). Like John Lennon and Paul McCartney both state in this song that is so appropriate, right this moment, for the things going on in our world.

Too many want to destroy, when what is the truth is that we have already been destroyed, a million and one times, over and over again, and to help fix ourselves, a lot of people think we have to destroy others, because those unenlightened fools seem to have it in their heads that we need to be destroyers when really, it is time to do that 8th house thing, after all of this destruction, and REBUILD.

Don’t you know seriously, that it’s gonna  be alright?

It will be -watch, because it is no longer this back and forth with people who would not bother to see the human element in all of this – only the ideas of being a winner or having the opportunity to call other people losers. The only loser in this time in history is the same damned one from all those generations ago – IGNORANCE.

“You say you’ve got a real solution, well, you know, we’d all love to see the plan. You ask me for a contribution, well, you know, we’re doing what we can…but if you want money for people with minds that hate, all I can tell you brother is that you have to wait…”

Or actually, don’t bother waiting, or hating, but for sure keep on stating things – because this is not that kind of revolution.

You who are monied, while you think you have all the power, it is actually very limited – that is the beauty of material means versus the means which are provided by the collective heart and soul of humankid – we can choose NOT to war, and we can choose instead, to Love, and to do so with the idea in our heads that in doing so, we will create the biggest changes – the ones within our own selves.  This is really what this is all about – who we are to ourselves, and also, of course, who we are to those in our lives – because we actually live a shared life with the entire planet, to this point, and to this point it has seemed as though someone else was in charge, that there were these unspoken rules that make us all feel as though there is nothing left to lose but hope.

Don’t you dare !

“You say you’ll change the Constitution, well, you know…we all want to change your head. You tell me it’s the institution, well, you know….you’d better free your mind instead…”

We have been told over the last few months and weeks that we are going to do this, that and the other, and the collective of us shook our heads, not in disbelief, but, from being tired of all of the back and forth, of all of the name calling of each other, and indeed, we are all part of this, even me, when I state things about getting in each other’s faces, proverbially and for real, and telling one another what we think is wrong with each other, without first thinking about what the hell is wrong with our damned personal selves?

I mean, really – who the hell is anyone at all to tell another human soul who and what they are?

3_revolution

We can sit here, remaining in our Jesus Christ pose, and we can continue with this ongoing ridiculousness that has been the thing that we have called our life blood, but, it is what is killing us, is dividing us, is making us seem like we have to hate on one another when really, all you need is Love.

 “…but, if you go carrying pictures of Chairman Mao, you ain’t gonna make it with anyone anyhow…”

We must not ever give up who we are, not matter what. We are the global family of those who are here to make a difference, through our character, our integrity, our ability to use all of our senses, including the sixth sense. We are the people who were brought into this lifetime, not just to see to it that what is ours stays ours, but more, that we never ever forget who we are.

We are the Collective, the people who make everything happen. We are the ones who live everyday, trying hard to get past all of the rhetoric, and when we have found ourselves not able to get past it, we chose, and still choose, to instead raise our voices, take a stand and tell the world that we are not afraid.

We are not afraid of change, because we are who will exact it, protesting as we will, making certain the wrongs of the Universal Energies are no longer what we live  in fear of, live hiding from, live to survive but another day because of. We were not brought into this lifetime to be afraid of other  mere humans, at all, and we will do ourselves no real service when we should also choose to just not care, to just stand there in the proverbial line of fire and absorb the hubris of the machine-like masses, poised to believe that their small numbers, and their small thinking, and their smallness of soul is any match for the collective of us who are here, NOT to take away anything from anyone else, but to add to the Universal energies of peace, tolerance, acceptance, and most of all, Love…the sort of the higher energy.

We have become a species too quick to hate that which is not like us, and we have become an imposing energy, together, at one time, creating change as I write this. No matter what it is that we think anyone at all has taken from us, we must not ever forget that we are who makes the difference in our own lives, and not some guys in suits who seem an entire galaxy away from the each of us. When we think about it in those terms, it seems like things are all in a dream state, are all in that place within us where for real, fear exists alongside Love.

And when we have that, the standing-next-to-each-other of fear and Love, we have what is called a balance, a knowing of what is not right for us each, and a belief that we are here to create the change, and that the things happening right this moment are not meant to scare us, but rather and only to make us think.

Today, folks, is the best day for the each of us to don the warrior spirit, the heart of the Goddess, the soul of the angels….and take that energy, and make it our own, and use it, not to destroy, but to rebuild and heal, from the soil to the sky…

Aloha Mai E….
