Six important guidelines in life

Picture and guidelines credit: unknown

Here are a few good things to keep in mind on this dance through life. While we all have our own wisdom and our own experiences, perhaps it’s never too late to pick up a few extra pointers. Together we learn, together we grow and together we heal.

  1. When you are alone, mind your thoughts
  2. When you are with friends, mind your tongue
  3. When you are angry, mind your temper
  4. When you are with a group, mind your behavior
  5. When you are in trouble, mind your emotions
  6. When God starts blessing you, mind your ego.

Blessings to all of you my friends and much much love ❤️ 🙏🏼

The Akashic Records

Have you heard of the Akashic records before?

In theosophy and anthroposophy, the Akashic records is a compendium of all universal events, thoughts, words, emotions, and intent ever to have occurred in the past, present, or future in terms of all entities and life forms, not just human. They are believed by theosophists to be encoded in a non-physical plane of existence known as the mental plane. It is believed that all thoughts, words, intent, etc. generates its own unique “frequency or vibration” which is stored in the Akashic records.

It is said that we can access such records and they could be thought of as a cosmic computer system that has recorded every soul’s thoughts and experiences on a vibrational level. If you could access such records, what would you ask?

Here are a few examples.

  1. What are some of the main lessons and experiences my soul chose to experience on earth?
  2. How can I release blocked emotions?
  3. What fears, traumas or challenges am I carrying in from a past life?
  4. What is my Soul’s plan for romance in my life?
  5. What line of business will bring me the most fulfillment?
  6. What is the best course of action to heal a challenge I’m currently dealing with?

Lime Water

Picture: Yahoo

After getting much appreciated feedback for my Celery post, I have decided to do a health segment on this blog, much like our weekly unusual word post. I felt that each one of us has so much to share and yet at times it’s the simplest of remedies we hear for the first time. I hope to inspire you with simple yet powerful knowledge, and arm you with easy weapons that don’t take much to incorporate into your daily routine. I look forward to any and all feedback concerning this blog segment.

Today I would like to share the benefits of lime water and it’s surely an easy, quick and inexpensive additive to boost your health. Here are some amazing benefits of adding lime to your water whenever you can.

  • Boost immune system
  • Prevent cancer
  • Increase energy
  • Improve digestion
  • Balance PH
  • Lower blood pressure
  • Improve liver function
  • Reduce oxidative stress
  • Detoxification
  • Bowel movement

Impressive, don’t you think. Especially if you are struggling with any of these issues and definitely worth a try. I think there is something for everyone in here since no body is immune to cancer or couldn’t use a little boost to the immune system.

Giving it to the Universe

This post is about surrender, of letting “it” be, and making a conscious choice. There is always some sort of choice to make, and life takes us on a wild rides, whether it is on a conscious level, or on an inner level. The one we don’t even notice, sometimes until quite some time later.

Carrying out troubles and burdens simply gets exhausting on some days and it doesn’t matter of what angle life comes at us. Sometimes we are just tired and feel that we have fought far too long. That perhaps we deserve a break. How nice it would be if things go smooth for once. It’s usually when our strengths fails, maybe during a tough patch, a time of experiencing a low, that we forget that our life’s greatest lessons and achievements come during those very difficult times. It doesn’t matter once we have reached that point and it’s hard to see your way out of it.

These times are enlightening, but also hard work. We are taken on a journey from being aware, awake, conscious of our actions, our reactions, learning our lessons, taking the honest look at ourselves, putting in the shadow work and inner child healing, to hindsight wisdom and acknowledgements. We hope to be conscious enough to make great choices, but even such soundness can change from day to day. What worked yesterday may not today as a new day brings new circumstances. Realizing such, brings awareness that each day requires much flexibility, within ourselves and how we tackle our day and our circumstances. No two days are the same and no two experiences are the same, even if they are similar. Chances are we are not exactly the same every day, and different emotions will yield different experiences and perceptions.

There is no constant in fleeting moments, and perhaps going with the flow prevents us to get stuck. New experiences will require a new skill set, and each opportunity brings forth new ways and possibilities. Even remembering that we have choices is sometimes hidden in the fog of life, in our mere daily existence. Life can take us the highest of highs and the lowest of lows. Roses one day, a glacier of ice another. Both beautiful in their own way.

I have been an eager student riding those variants. I have learned that there is a reason for whenever those feelings come up. Some days they beg to be addressed and acknowledged, while on other days, I surrender them to the universe, and take a break from my goals and plans. I try to clear my head, to let it be, to not interfere and to take that much needed break. I leave the unfolding to the universe to orchestrate what’s next. I don’t mind to sit on the sidelines from time to time, believing and trusting. I offer up my agenda and accept spiritual guidance and everything that comes up for me during that time. I trust that there is a plan far greater than mine. Where I might have encountered lack and limitations before, there are also spiritual solutions and creative ideas. I step back and let life lead the way. Thy will be done.

Could we all surrender and give our troubles to the universe to sort it out for one day?

Apophenia

With a little 3 day excursion earlier in the week, I almost forgot the “new word” post, but better late than never.

Have you ever looked at the clouds and saw a face? Perhaps in popcorn like in this picture? If you have you might not know that there is an actual name for it which takes me to our word for this week.

The word is Apophenia and is the tendency to see faces where there aren’t any. I don’t know about you, but I clearly see a face 😉

Ultra Independence

There used to be a time I was filled with pride when it came to my ultra independence and not needing any help, anyone or anything. It was validation and proof that I could make it on my own if need be. This pride was probably around the same time this picture was taken. A picture full of life, like there wasn’t anything too big to tackle. A picture full of confidence with a big smile that ensured I could take on the world, no matter what. A picture on a high note, a good day, feeling empowered while standing on my own two feet, firmly on the ground. Unshakable.

I remember times when a girlfriend asked how I do it! To her it seemed like I had superpowers, being the strongest individual she’d known. For me it was simply a way of life, the only way I’d come to know in my existence. Years and years later, her statement finally makes sense, although I still can’t answer it. There are times now I feel like a worry wad and it’s aways strange territory. Armed with more knowledge and wisdom, a deeper understanding of all inner workings, at times I can’t help but wonder as I asked myself “what happened to her”, me, the one behind the confident and energetic smile. Too many times I feel tired now. Tired of battles I don’t care to fight. Tired of the battle of chronically hurting all the time. Maybe I just to handle it better and even as this picture was taken, I was well into my battle with the rheumatoid arthritis already. Maybe it just eats away a little more each year, each month, each day until the tiredness reflects in eyes that have lost their luster.

I used to think “Mama raised me well.” Like her I became a strong woman, dealing with things on my own, never asking for help, never being in a position dependent on another. No I never did find myself on that track and she led by example all her life, concealing her own struggles, holding it together, keeping her emotions carefully under check. I grew up much like her, strong, fending for myself, making a life for myself, never in a bind I couldn’t get myself out from. No…I was always prepared and I always made sure of it. The only thing different between us was that it was me who wore her emotions on my sleeve most of the time. For Mom it was a sign of weakness, her own past trauma which ultimately contributed to my trauma and the damage of how I viewed myself. This created an inner child that would hold on to that trauma, that event, storing it for all eternity, becoming a part of your self worth, our struggles and our demons. It is here where something like being independent, normally viewed as an attribute, can actually become a burden, something that weighs you down and develops hurt and pain within, based on your life experiences.

Somewhere I recently read that ultra independence is a trauma response and the title couldn’t have rang truer. It could mean a lot of different things, such as your perceptions, feelings, impressions, reactions, experiences and how we feel that leads to such trauma.

For example: Moms belief about my feelings created trauma within me. It left me feeling as I was weak, not strong enough, that I couldn’t do it, that I had to prove it to myself but mostly others, her, alone and without help to gain worthiness. This is just one example of what can happen and for each experience an inner child is created that lives within us, holding on to that trauma, waiting to be healed. When a woman dares to look and heal herself, she then heals the trauma not only of herself, but that of generations of her family. Her mother, grandmother, all the way down the line as this ancestral trauma is passed from generation to generation.

Ultra independence is created when we believe that we have to prove something and when we had a hurtful experience.

Maybe it is the status of how we are viewed by others that hurts. That way we don’t fit in and feel like an outsider.

Maybe it is from being misunderstood, of being lied to and taken advantage of.

Maybe it is due to neglect, abuse, betrayal or disappointment.

Maybe it is from abandonment. From not feeling trustworthy, capable of making sound decisions.

Ultra independence is always a result of broken trust issues. A soul contract you make with yourself to never again go down this road.

I have reached a point I am no longer proud of my ultra independence. Life has shifted and today I am more interested in understanding the causes that led me to feeling this pride the begin with. To understand the triggers and the wounds that were created a long time ago and to heal this trauma for myself and for Mom and everyone else down the line.

New moon in Aquarius

“Where one find an obstacle, another finds a helpful resting point. Yet another, a secret passage.

No matter how hard you try, you’ll never change the natural placement of the stars.

At any given moment, however, you are free to elevate the angle from which you experience them.”

~Jai Dev Singh

Aquarius activates our most idealistic, notions about why could, maybe, possibly be. Brainstorm as if anything were possible. One caveat: Before you action any of it, remember that mercury is retrograde until February 20th. But dream now and plan, because whatever you cook up will be double blessed half a year from now.

Happy New Moon. Be still for a few minutes. Connect with the energy of the new moon, dream big and set your intentions. Where do you see yourself in 6 month? See it as if it has come to life already. Let the universe know what you like to manifest and consider it done.

Coconut Oil Spa

My little bathroom retreat / tub corner with candle chandelier and lots of other candles. Dim the lights, turn into soft music, reiki music at a healing frequency is perfect, light the candles of course and sit back for awhile.

February, month of self care and purification. How well have you looked after yourself so far? Are you running out of ideas or need a few suggestions of how to spoil yourself without breaking the bank? How about a retreat right at home with this Coconut Oil Spa?

Once a week for 20 minutes, that’s all you need to commit to. Soak in a bath with a third cup coconut oil, (careful slippery) 20 drops of lavender oil, and 1 cup of Epsom salts. This combo draws out toxins, balances ph levels, and brings balance back into your being. Plus you sleep like a baby if done in the evening before bedtime, enjoying the calming effects of lavender.

Enjoy. 💙

Earthkeepers

“The Earthkeepers teach that creation – the earth, humans, whales, rocks and even the stars – are made of vibration and light.”

Alberto Villoldo, Ph.D.

According to Alberto, the Earthkeepers are shamans who rose to the level of angels. Some are in human form and some are on spirit, but they have a clear mandate to protect and look after our planet.

Have you felt the urge, or heard the call to heal, to work towards bringing peace to our world? What connection to you have to your planet, to society, to life, it’s creatures, plants, wonders and humanity?

Buddhists call these beings bodhisattvas, while in the Andes and Amazon the Earthkeepers are called Laika. The Laika tell us that we have the potential to become Homo Luminous, developing luminous energy field of angels within our lifetime.

So how come we haven’t heard of these protectors keeping themselves secret for centuries? It’s undeniable that we live in different times, on the precipice of great change. Perhaps there wasn’t a need to step into the limelight before. Perhaps we weren’t ready to hear the call. I am not sure, but more and more of us are walking towards the light of enlightenment and more and more tribe members are recognized. We are growing and are no longer alone. Are you noticing?

“To an Earthkeeper, love is not a feeling or something you barter with. Love is the essence of who you are, and it radiates from you as a brilliant aura. You become love, prescribe fearlessness and attain enlightenment.”
