Finding our Light.

I am still amazed at how many of you resonated with a previous post Cracking our Inner Shells. And I am so grateful for your responses and for those who shared this post with their own readers.. 

Knowing that we are the only ones with the power to dim our lights, is often  a hard  pill to swallow. As Human’s we often apportion blame for our emotional feelings  upon others or circumstances we find ourselves in. Yet in truth only I allow myself to feel sad, as likewise only I can choose to feel happy.

It’s natural we sometimes become overwhelmed, especially when the lessons keep coming. But it is important to remember that learning to understand yourself and your world is an on-going journey which we are all  gathering  through our experiences.

We do not come to Earth with instruction manuals, its all about learning and finding ourselves as we progress.  We are  spiritual beings, we need to determine where our spiritual light is being subdued or blocked.  Sometimes life throws up those much needed lessons so we have a chance to remove the layers of debris, so we can get out of our own way to feel our own light shining again.

Those lessons are intended to help you become more of who you are. And as you grow through this self-discovery, you begin to create your own instruction manual. And as with any manual, we often refer back to it as we tap into our intuitive thoughts, which help guide us through the pages of our everyday lives.

Answering the many responses upon my own posts often allows me to reach much deeper within my own inner self..I find myself instinctively saying the right things..As I tap into that Inner World which guides, And then I check myself and then question my self.. As I ask myself “ So why are you not following your own advice?” Practice what you preach is another pill to swallow!..

When we buy a car, we make sure we maintain it properly, we put in the correct fuel, we keep it topped up with oil, and clean and polish it.. Our Bodies are vehicles for our Mind and Spirit. So too we need to polish our thoughts  clearing away the accumulation of mental  debris that keeps us from operating at our fullest capacity.

A simple shift in our thoughts can positively affect our mental state, moving from complaints, and negativity  into gratitude and Positivity by applying the light of love to any shadowy thoughts. .. Learning to nurture oneself instead of chastising oneself, Applying liberally that Polish we seldom use upon our selves… The Name of which is Love. 

How many negative thoughts flit through our minds in a day?  This morning caught me in this mood, Until I heard myself speak my thoughts aloud and I realised just how pitiful they sounded.. And I burst out laughing as I learnt another valued lesson.

At times we need to embrace the stillness, connecting back into the power within our centre, Meditation allows us to reconnect back to the source..  I know this is true of myself, I give my power/energy away by being pulled in too many directions all at once.. This Power Source  is always there for us, but when we forget to connect, we forget to put ourselves first and gather back in the energy we need to power up our own inner Lights. And so our lights become dim..

Sometimes it can be difficult to find the stillness if our bodies and minds are in the way. Depression plays its tricks that we are not worthy.

I can dish out advice until I am blue in the face.. But my lesson in this is clear..

I need to practice what I preach.. As we practice steps to keep our energy flowing freely and without obstruction, we shine our light more brightly, illuminating our own paths and making the world around us brighten as well.

Many thanks for reading

Shine your Lights

When the mind becomes Hollow.

I have spend the best part of a couple of hours on WP this afternoon, not only catching up on some of your  blog posts which have appeared in the reader, but I have been sifting through my archives, looking for inspiration.. My mind is kind of blank at the moment.. And tiredness sweeps in like waves rushing in on the shoreline.. as my energy comes in short bursts… I am just allowing myself to go within the flow.

Below is a poem I wrote back in 2011.. I did repost it again in 2012. But I know I have many more new subscribers, welcome to you all, who it will be new to..

Often our minds hold all the images we can do nothing about.  So sometimes, Clearing one’s thoughts is all we can do, as we learn to let go of the turmoil we keep within.. 

Have a Beautiful weekend all of you..

Love and Blessings 

~Sue ~

Hollow is the mind as you shut out the night

Images drift in as visions across the screen as you fight

The torments of a soul suspended within the illusion

As you twist and turn in the jungle of confusion

Darts of blame

Spears of flames

Arrows of truth piercing the layers

As they burn into your soul, sending out prayers

To all who would listen

Hark, Hear that? As tears glisten

Rolling down, they fall through time

Tasting their salty brine

The silence echoes back across the void

What is this world in which we’ve toyed?

This Garden of Eden in which we play

Why do we destroy and cause so much dismay?

The Visions erupt clear and sharp

Each one like a new thrown dart

You erase them, scrubbing them clean

Your mind the blackboard…… the screen

You take up the chalk and in Big Letters you write

There is only one answer for this world ..

UNITE

A common theme, a running thread

To pull together all pounding in my head

Nations against nation Man against Beast

I see it all as the story is unleashed

And as the Hollow is filled with thought

The restless mind in-between Worlds is caught

Seeing the Visions of Natures wrath

And all who will suffer along her path

Is it any wonder as I twist and turn

The Visions of our future are of Peace I yearn

So close your eyes- close them tight

Hollow is the mind as you shut out the night.

Joining The Light

The shafts of Light filter through my mind

Helping me see, illuminating the clouds of dark I find.

They shimmer and dance before my eyes

Cutting out the echoes of Human Cries

They shed their beam of truth

Lighting up the corridors of Time

As a knowing surrounds me, for I travel along its Ray

Listening and absorbing in all it has to say

It heals with its warmth,

As its colours reflect the prisms of thought.

Rainbows of light surround me, illuminating where shadows are naught

I ride upon it thread, as it takes me out from my shackled shell

Floating now in a sea of pure love

Forever here I wish to dwell

No Body,

No Time,

Just endless Peace,

What sweet release

Cracking our Inner Shells!

life-birth-and-rebirth

Sometimes we have to go within to the silent places we all have in order to find out what is really going on with our emotional bodies. Even knowing all the things I do, we are within our Human form to learn and grow..

I needed to ask myself a few questions as to why I was feeling so lost, depressed and sad… More was going on than just bereavement. Yes the fall  I had had,both bruised and shook me, but what else was shaking me to the core?

For those who know a little about my Soul Journey, You will also know that my own Mother and I had not spoken for 10 years prior to her passing some eleven years ago now….Despite many attempts I knew I was only wounding myself more by continually trying to bridge the rift, to be continually rejected.. So this rejection and other issues related to overwork and stress, resulted in a Nervous Breakdown in my mid forties..

So when my Mother died, while I was sad, I guess I never really grieved her loss. Because to me.. I had grieved her long  before her death as lost to me.. As I had had to shut down my emotions to cope with her rejection..  I had undergone counselling within my breakdown, and my Mother jumped up at every dark corner of why even in my teens I had suffered from deep depression.

We often  go through  whole chapters of our lives creating a protective shell around ourselves because we need it in order to heal from some early trauma. I know I had built many such Layers of shell around myself from various experiences over the years..

So my own fall, and the death of my aunt in affect broke the shell, leaving a wide crack as the emotions came flooding back up to the surface and out.   I took time out to meditate deeply and Looked  in on myself.. I can now see that the new part of ourselves cannot be born within the confines of the shell of our old selves..

Sometimes  part of us must die before another part can come to life. Even though this is a natural and necessary part of our growth, it is often painful  if we don’t realize what’s happening,  we become confused. This disorientation is  often part of the messengers that tell us a shift is taking place within us. These shifts happen throughout the lives of all humans, as we move and grow through adolescence into adulthood.

Each of us are shifting, changing daily. We can surrender to this process of letting go of our old self with great love and gratitude, and welcome in the new with an open mind and heart, ready for our next phase of life.

I also looked deeper still, at why I am getting so wound up with world affairs at the moment, Why was I being so affected? Am I not just as guilty of not letting it go..  Do I not just need the World to just be, as it shifts to find its own new identity as the old world dies, as the layers of our established reality now crack and shatter from our disillusioned view.

Is not the world we are each part of ready for the Next Great Shift as we enter the next phase of Life on Earth I asked myself?  Are we not ONE and the Same.. Each affecting the other?

And as I already knew the answer…. Many of us seek the answers to life’s questions by looking outside of ourselves and trying to glean advice from the people around us. Each of us is unique, with our own personal histories, our own sense of right and wrong, and our own way of experiencing the world that defines our realities. We all of us have than inner compass which we can go within to seek guidance. 

Only you can know the how’s and why’s of your life. The answers that you seek can be found when you start answering your own questions,Sometimes we have to get a little lost in order to fine oneself again..But the journey in finding oneself is all part of our Earth Journey.

Maybe the World too is going to get a little lost before it too can find itself again..

Lets hope it can also learn and grow! 

Many thanks for reading…

 

Love and Blessings

To my WordPress Circle..

Circle-of-Light.jpg

Firstly let me say how overwhelmed I have been by your kind responses to my last post ‘Fear of the Future’ So many of your comments, (Comments which I will soon be answering in full. ) all which have resonated deep within my core of seeing how our lives are often entwined within our Circular journeys as we bump into each other, even if only for the briefest of moments. Each meeting of minds is meant to be.

Life is a circular journey, whenever we work to release a habit, change a pattern, or overcome a fear, we often encounter that issue one last time, even after we thought we had conquered it. This is why I can get so frustrated with myself, for it reminds me I am only Human and needing to pass through my own lessons. And despite all of my ‘Knowing’ the reappearance of these old patterns of sadness, depression, or fear, is often a sign that we have come full circle, and that if we can maintain our resolve through one last test, we will achieve a new level of mastery in our lives.

Sometimes we have to come full circle which can be like stepping into a opening of a forest where, for a moment, we can see where we came from and where we are standing at the same time. Remembering that we will be tested again is important, but it’s also important to pause and take a look at the ground we’ve covered through the dense forest we at times get lost in, we cannot always see the Wood for the trees..

I have come a long way upon my own awakening to the realities within this world. It is that awareness that often leaves us feeling helpless as we try to bring others to this realisation of the truth of co-existence upon our planet.. The truth of it I Can’t change the World, only my own perception of it.. Yet I cannot bury my head in the sand like some of our political heads of governments seem to be doing either..

My awareness is heightened as I sense a great change which not only has affected my own inner world, but I sense on the horizon a Change which will affect also many of you.. Most of you have read some of my thinking on how we are often manipulated via the media within our lives.. New revelations are now breaking up the trust some had in believing all that we are told.. This can only be a good thing.. For we need to Question and find our own answers something again I have often said in my posts. Believe not one word I say, but find out the truth for yourselves..

Many of us throughout the world are facing tests I can only be thankful I am not having to go some of those others are experiencing at the moment.. My own small test of lifting my spirits is nothing in comparison to theirs.

We have to Remember we will be tested many times over, but it’s also important to pause and take a look at the ground we’ve covered, honouring our courage, our persistence, and our achievement. Only then we can begin the next leg of our circular journey with a fuller understanding of where we are coming from, and to where we are heading.

The world right now is being tested over and over in many places. People in power are reluctant relinquish hold over their Control over what they perceive is right to them. Many places upon the Earth in conflict over Differences, be them territorial, race, or religion. Large companies rule with their Iron fists of greed to gouge even greater scars as their paths sweep clear whole sways of communities and natures habitats.. They are unwilling to live in tolerance and co-exist in co-operation with one another and expect everyone around them to change to suit their needs rather than accept and work together for betterment of the whole to find more sustainable solutions for our Earths future.

Political parties are squabbling like children, one blaming the other, while no one is pulling together to solve the real problems facing the world. And many of the population oblivious to the mechanics of World Events and how many are interlinked..

It seems sometimes we have to come full circle before we stop and take notice.. I ask those who are aware to take notice to the Signs we are being shown, And be prepared to take responsibility for the parts we all play in our part within the Whole of which we are One.

I thank all of you for the parts you have all played in helping me see where about on that circle I now stand.. And I am ever thankful for the Love you share.

I feel more empowered by your outpouring of support than any of you can know..

I am taking a short break from visiting, but will be answering comments very soon. And will be back with a new sense of purpose..

Many Blessings for being with me on my journey right now..

Sue

Fear of the Future

 

Now most who follow me know I try to bring a positive touch within my posts… Yet to be quite honest with you all I am really struggling right now to lift myself from the doldrums of my own thoughts.

The key to conquering our fears lies in awareness. When we identify the irrational thoughts that frighten us and replace them with positive affirming ones.

Argh… all easier said than done..

You would think with my inner Knowing, and my Spiritual mind I should be the last person to take a nose dive into that Pit of depression.. Especially when I dredged its depth before and vowed that I had been there done that and worn the T-shirt and I refuse to wear it again.  

I could blame it on my Fall which left me feeling bruised with aching, muscles which are still healing.. And I could blame it on grief as I lost a very beloved Aunt last week. I could blame my fatigue on me deciding to move a whole wall of books out the spare bedroom with wrists still recovering from the sprains of the fall.. And I could blame it on the weather being cold and miserable.. I could even blame it on the state of the world, or the Planets .. I have a whole host of excuses I could fall back upon to justify why I am feeling tired and jaded..

So what really is ailing me?

Last night I lay awake yet again, those dark hours of silence often give rise to the inner chatter as the inner-dialogue goes back and forth and replays over and over like and endless loop on a tape recorder..

At last I got up to make myself a drink of herbal tea.. And as we had put some of my spiritual books on a bookshelf on the landing, I grabbed a book in the half darkness what I thought was a Chicken Soup book of short stories by Jack Canfield, Instead it was the Book ‘ How to Get from Where You Are To Where You Want to Be’  By Jack Canfield.

I smiled.. I had had this book maybe around 5 or more years, and I knew I had only scanned the pages before. So I settle back with cup in hand and started to read..

The more I read the more I could see exactly what the author was getting at.. Didn’t I Know the principles of the ‘Secret’ another book upon my shelves which is on similar lines of positive thinking and affirmations. Yes I did.. so why was I sabotaging my thinking?

So I asked myself what was making me so low and feeling like my life was on hold? And I was coming up with all sorts of excuses to justify those feelings..

When I took early retirement I lapped up my spare time.. Gardening, knitting, painting and decorating.. Yet now there is a lull… a pause.. And I am asking myself what do I want to do to fill those hours in my day?..

When you have spent all your working life working often at the beck and call of others and putting others first.. It comes as a revelation to know you should be putting yourself first.. And that it’s Ok to do so.  And Its Ok too just to do nothing..

Your soul longs to fulfil its purpose—a purpose you agreed to in the timelessness in which you existed before your birth . And because of this, neither you nor the Universe will set any circumstance before you that you are not capable of handling. Fear of the future can paralyze you, preventing you from living in the moment and from working toward your goals in a mindful manner

(The key to conquering this fear lies in awareness. When you can identify the irrational thoughts that frighten you,)

I am now analysing my own thoughts more closely. We have to have courage when fear of the future  strikes out at us as we strive to create, as we evolve.

Change often creeps upon us in a gradual fashion. The World too is undergoing its Changes and I am sure we are all of us feeling those ‘Fearful ripples’ as we are swept up among them..

We have to try to disregard past patterns and disengage from the Fears we are bombarded with and focus on the present by stilling the inner voice that comments critically on all we do.

We also have to understand we can not just sit with our heads in the sand.. We are each of us responsible 100% for every thought, every Action which in turn creates a Reaction.. We too are creating our New World.. Let the goals we create help bring about Unity, Love and Peace.. 

Life changes can affect us in complex and unpredictable ways, taking us off of our comfort blanket, pushing us into new circumstances that test our limits, the mere idea of attaining the life of our dreams can shake us to the core.

As I read the first couple of chapters I was nodding along as I knew his words were ringing true. And I am 100% Responsible for my future.. I need to focus upon what sort of Future I wish to create.. And know that I can blame no one other than myself if it comes up short of my Dreams. So I had best get focusing! 😉 

Thank you for reading

Sue

Each of us, carries within us the capacity to change the world in small ways for better or worse. Everything we do and think affects the people in our lives, and their reactions in turn affect others As the effect of a seemingly insignificant word passes from person to person, its impact grows and can become a source of great joy, inspiration, anxiety, or pain. Your thoughts and actions are like stones dropped into still waters, causing ripples to spread and expand as they move outward.. I hope that I can send a few ripples out via the web of life, as we each of us weave the threads together... Welcome to my Sanctuary of Peace and Love... May we each spread our Lights around our World....Sue Dreamwalker
