Meet the World on Your Own Terms

Eventually you have to meet the world on your own terms.

You have been trained and conditioned to somehow fit in. You have been told what the terms of the game are, been told what you have to be and do in order to belong to this big human family called society. Yeah, you, and me, and everyone else, have been told we have to do this, that or the other, to find our place, our niche, and that’s just the way it is, was, and will be.

The game was rigged from the time of your arrival in this dimension and you bought the whole ticket. We all did.

And how has it worked out?

Some have been successful at it. And it has to be said some folks are very very good at playing the BIG game as I call it.
BUT many are alienated and lost, confused and miserable about it all. Many creatives, artists, outsiders, many sensitives, indigos and introverts, have not fared very well at all. And they shoulder the guilt and self negating thoughts that it is their fault. But here are my observations for those specific people who can’t fit in, don’t want to fit in, but feel somehow wrong for it.

2abd27bef63ed8a9a5c92cab5c31e727You might not be designed to fit in!

Your very alienation, even depression, and your sensitivity etc could be the very signals your own soul is sending you telling you, nudging you, reminding you, that you have to meet this world on your own terms and do your own unique thing…no matter what other people, or society at large, may think, say or do.

Now, before I go any further, I am assuming here that you are a peaceful, creative, loving, compassionate and inherently kind person. I don’t want to encourage hostile, racist, misogynist people who hate others out onto the street.

But you! You have to get out there and meet the world on your own terms.
And as you get older, the incentive to do it, the urgency to do it, the pressure (from the inside) to do it, increases. Of course so does the fear, the anxiety, and the voice inside your head says,’ NO, you have too much to lose, you don’t know what you are doing, these feelings will pass, just stay in the box and shut up.’

But you know what. The impulse to offer your gift to others, the urge, if you have it, to be of greater purpose, the burning desire within you to break out and ‘do your thing,’ whatever that thing is, it DOES NOT GO AWAY.

It might live somewhere inside, in the dark shadows of your psyche, it might make you feel tired and ill, it might even make you depressed, but it will not ever go away. And upon your time to leave this sacred existence, you will ponder it. Sorry about that.

So I implore you, beseech you, invite you, cajole you, and challenge you, be bold, be daring, be true to your inner voice, no matter how crazy. Dare to step up and step out. You owe it to your self and to the world. Don’t be duped and suppressed any longer than is necessary.

You can create the rules of your own life.
You can be the one who decides the rules of your world.
It is up to you.
The world needs you.

The Butterfly People

It is not something we contemplate often, but maybe it should be. You see, we humans, and animals, and the earth, and wired together in one great tapestry.

That is not just some spiritual verbiage, or airy fairy idea about oneness. It’s a fact. We are interconnected and interlaced and our actions affect an area outside ourselves in ways we understand and, to some extent, beyond our understanding. And our inactions have the same effect.

Do you remember hearing about the butterfly effect? It said something like, if a butterfly flaps its wings on one side of the world, the effect ripples around and changes something on the other side.

Put scientifically:
“In chaos theory, the butterfly effect is the sensitive dependence on initial conditions in which a small change in one state of a deterministic nonlinear system can result in large differences in a later state.” Wikipedia

butterfly effectBut suppose, for one moment, that this also works when something doesn’t happen. What does this mean? What I mean here is that, suppose you are called to some service, to some action, but you hesitate and falter, full of self doubt or anxiety, and you don’t take the action you intuitively know is part of your destiny? If you are called but you do not go, what effect does it have? 

In other words, does ‘inaction,’ have an ‘uneffect?’

Of course the universe will always fill in the gaps we leave. Nature abhors a vacuum and will not let it happen, so the universe will build itself around what we do, or don’t, do.

But are we denying the world the opportunity to benefit from our ‘wing flap?’
Are you the butterfly that could flap its wings and affect something far away, for the better?
And if you might be, who are you to deny and turn away from that, because you feel anxious, or confused, or poor?

I have pondered this, and come to the conclusion there must be millions and millions of people wanting to ‘be of service’ and those millions and millions of people, together, could create such enormous change simply by their small actions, it is extraordinary. It boggles the mind to imagine the potential of millions of people flapping their wings, and not just once, but again and again.

six-degreesIt is not airy fairy. If you imagine the power of one tiny cell, you see potential, but in many ways not much more. But if you imagine the potential and power of that one cell unified and interconnected with millions, billions of other cells, you see a transformation that was inconceivable before. You see creatures, flowers, trees, human beings, animals…everything comes from that unity of one with many. The power is undeniable.

But now to the opposite effect. When we withhold our light, our gifts, our genius, our power, our very potential, from the world, for whatever reason, it has an impact, an effect. It has repercussions.

I think the world cries a little when we deny it our beauty and love.
Maybe it even dies a little.

During my years spent with a shamanic camp and teacher I learned a little about beauty and poetry. I was shown, and taught, that the gods of the invisible world feed on beauty, truth, poetry, chocolate and words of love, and things like this. My shaman teacher encouraged us to speak to the invisible world and offer it our beauty and poetry, offer it our chocolate and incense, expecting nothing in return.

I remember he would actually be angry when someone would hold back their beauty. He wasn’t understanding like we are supposed to be these days. He saw it as an insult to the invisible world, and therefore to life itself. He was angry that people were letting their own egos, their own smallness, or pride, or fear, block this beautiful dance between the world of form and formlessness.

His interpretation was that the invisible world that held all the secrets and the mystery, was what actually held the world together. It doesn’t want your ego, it wants your truth and beauty. If that means you cry and shake when you offer it, it loves that. If it means you stand naked in innocence and offer your soul or your confusion, it will love that. It is the world beyond ego. It’s just not put in modern spiritual terms. But it’s just as real and powerful. 

Service to others, serving something greater than self, is the ultimate beauty and love. You and I know that because when we see it, we cry. Those tears we cry are the world crying itself back to life.

irene-carr-quotes2So I hope you are seeing what I am trying to say here. I am trying to say that if we all become willing to flap our wings, to go beyond ourselves, to offer our beauty, things happen somewhere. It may be invisible to us. It may even be subtle. But it doesn’t matter.
I really believe our complacency, fuelled by our fear and doubt, bolstered by our feelings of powerlessness, will be the cause of our destruction and the destruction of our world, if were are not careful.

That is why it’s so important that we, the small people, who only have small wings, flap them all together, at the same time.

I feel the urgency of this. We are being called, each of us, to grow bigger and bolder, to sacrifice our questions and our fear, our confusion and our doubt. The way will be revealed as we walk the path. But each of us must make the first step consciously and voluntarily. 

Thank you for reading!

 

Your Transformation Matters – Urgent Upgrade Time

I haven’t posted on here for some time, but with global events being so intense I felt the need to offer some words of support and inspiration to anyone who may be struggling under the ‘tsunami’ that is rolling toward us day by day.
And it is a tsunami, make no mistake.

We are under pressure, all of us. Those who are trying to consciously understand and meet what seems to be happening, and those who are not. It is the same pressure on both. And it is easy to throw judgment at those who are ‘unconscious’ but that is not the point at all.
We are human. We are a human body made of 7 billion individual selves.
Right now many of those selves are fighting each other like a cancer, or like an auto immune disease. And thats not just a metaphor.
It is the truth, because the world is a microcosm, and the whole is contained in the part.

vivir-bien1The point of emerging awareness is to know that, and act from that place with boundaries, compassion, love and gratitude.
The upgrade, brought to us by the evolutionary impulse, by the movement into the Age of Aquarius, is no small thing. It’s a radical shift in consciousness of the entire species, and possibly the whole of life itself.

It is a shift from the era of the individual to the era of collective consciousness, where the purpose of life is to serve the whole, like the cell in a body.

It is a shift from the era of lies, deceit and manipulation to the era of freedom and truth, transparency and authenticity.

It is the era of technological revolution and breakthrough, including the liberation of electricity from oil based, paid for, to alternative and free.

It is an era of the ‘brotherhood of man,’ where all become equal, all races and between the sexes. Inequality will be considered irrelevant because each will see themselves in each other. 

Of course right now it doesn’t seem like that at all! It seems to be the opposite. But the night is darkest just before dawn.

What can you do?

Keep the faith.
Stay focused on truth, loving kindness and authenticity.
Clear out your inner wardrobes – The more transparent and authentic you are the greater your contribution to the whole.
Become like Neo, make your enlightenment bulletproof.
Take the opportunity to inquire into your own sense of freedom. What is holding you back from being free right now? Is it something real or is it something to do with your past? Other people? Is it something you are ok with, or do you think it’s time to do some house cleaning?
Take the opportunity to look at your own division. Most of us have been trained to separation, and will inevitably view other people as ‘other.’ Most white people are inherently racist, even if its subtly. Or you may see women as inferior. It might be time to look at these tough areas of our lives.

Light-Being-MEDIt is time to dig deep into your inner resources and commit on a whole new level.
And it may take time. This global change is going to get more intense yet, and may become incredibly challenging as the dark stuff spirals out of control. We could see upheavals on substantial levels as institutions really begin to crumble, and that will trigger all our survival issues. What I mean is food, electricity, money, water, safety etc. It could get nasty.
I’m not being alarmist but we need to understand the changes are great. The future could be incredible. It could be incredibly good or could be incredibly bad. There are forces out there that do not want the global population to be free, to have free electricity and for us to share in equal brotherhood. They want us in fear and hate and perpetual war.
It is up to us to become the truth of what we want. 
If you want to see a loving world, BE LOVING NOW. Don’t wait for the world to become loving.
If you want to live in a world of freedom, BE FREE NOW, in whatever way you can. Free is a relative term, but to be free of mind manipulation is essential for each of us. Turn off the TV, stop buying newspapers and become a truth investigator.
Make the move to free energy, in whatever way you can.
Make healthy choices, go organic and eat more plant based.
Eliminate mass produced and chemical laden foods. Avoid those that are man made.
Become your own researcher and investigator.

What I am saying is live it now, don’t wait until the world catches up. It will only catch up when you live it. Thats a strange law but probably some weird quantum entanglement. Try it out. 
I’m always trying it out. I live as freely, compassionately, authentically and lovingly as I can. I’m not perfect and I fail often. But I do it anyway, because once tasted never forgotten. I used to live my life under the shroud of fear and shame, and it was hell. It was like wearing a mask all the time.
I can tell you now there is no mask. That is a huge relief and a great liberation.

So I am actively encouraging you to be braver, more foolish, to risk more, to become unafraid, to live more freely and wildly and to play your glorious part in our evolution to become a free flying butterfly.

Let me know how it goes.

Thanks for reading!

That Monday Blog – C’mon Baby Light Your Fire.

monday-morningDo you get that Monday feeling? I really wonder how many people do?
I even think that people who work for themselves and are actually not even affected by the Monday – Friday work thing, they get it as well. I think it’s so etched into our cultural collective experience that we feel it, regardless of whether it’s actually us who feels it! I believe it’s such a thick, pea soup kind of collective feeling that we almost can’t help but feel it..

However, I have also seen that we can learn a lot about ourselves from the feelings we don’t like. And that Monday morning feeling is one of them. I am going to be bold here and say to you, if you are having that ‘Monday morning is such a drag, another week of putting up with this shit,’ and it’s followed later in the week by the ‘Thank God it’s Friday and I’m done with that shit, gonna really enjoy my weekend,’ then there is something wrong. Sorry.

aa6224c7f3ceed835c5deafba685c702Life is short. very short. What is life about? What is YOUR LIFE ABOUT?
Sometimes, in fact a lot of the time, we really need to ask that question and answer it truthfully. It is easy to let this one slip under the weight of survivalism, conditioning, fear, and of course the demands and expectations of society. Oh God spare us from the expectations of society!
Let me tell you another thing here I have noticed in my 57 years of planetary experience. It’s fiction! Nobody gives a shit, and those who do are so scared of stepping out, they live lives of quiet desperation, trying desperately to conform to some totally fabricated values that are an illusion.

The Pull to Growth is Evolution at Work – Resistance is Not only Futile, it’s Dangerous!

The pull to growth in all of us is so powerful, because it is evolution itself doing its thing. Resistance to growth is, as the saying goes, futile. It will grow anyway, but it may grow as that tumour, or that inflammation, or just in the build up of negative charge in your life.

And then it gradually erodes you, or it rises to the surface as an explosion. Of course it feels negative, but it could just be the evolutionary necessity doing what it has to do.

That is why we developed the phrase,’ Go with the flow.’

2884678938_070b601af5_bWe don’t like blockage, we humans. Blockages of any kind cause problems. Physical, emotional, mental or galactic, it doesn’t matter.
And a blockage in one area of life soon permeates into all other areas of life, because life is inherently holistic.

But we have tendencies towards blockages.
Growth brings discomfort. Any teenager will tell you that. It can trigger all kinds of emotions, and many people will tell you that.
And therein lies the inner conflict.

The desire for change and the fear of change. What a paradox, conundrum, dilemma, and….OPPORTUNITY!

When we view it in a new way, and decide to honour the natural evolutionary demand, it gives all our discomfort and reluctance permission to exist, but it also minimises their power. Its all about inner authority and awareness. We often imagine we have to battle with discomfort and fear but this strategy just strengthens them.

Seeing them, knowing them, and loving them, even holding them like a mother would an anxious child, soothes them and says, 
‘It’s ok, I’ve got you covered, I can take care of you, and we will do this growing thing tenderly and caringly.’

We have been convinced that declaring war on things is the way to defeat them. So we try the strategy on ourselves. Insanity!

Declare peace on yourself, it works.
Growth is natural. The fear of growth is natural. Even the blockage is natural. there is nothing that ‘shouldn’t be there.’ It really is ok.
butterflylifecycleThrough awareness and a nurturing of the responsible inner adult, growth, whatever growth you feel is important, will happen so much more flowing, and will bring treasures you cannot imagine.

If you want any help un-blocking, get in touch. I have unblocked my own system so many times I know what I’m doing.

TRUE HUMAN BEINGS needed on Planet Earth.

2016 – A Call to Truth. TRUE HUMAN BEINGS needed on Planet Earth.
Resignation or Resurrection?
 
 
Helping-OthersWhat is your greatest aspiration? To help others? Or to help yourself?
Imagine finding that these two apparent opposites are two sides of a continuum that is linked, and they are connected and interdependent.
That means your personal success and happiness are connected to your helping others. That in itself is a great insight.
 
And here is another insight. The better you know yourself, the wiser you become, the more you embrace your authentic self, the more power you have to impact other people’s lives.
The more you help yourself, the more you help others. Not by feeding your every ego desire, and not by surrendering yourself to greed and avarice and selfishness, but by transcending these ego needs and coming to rest as a true human beings.

I had a Hunch you would read this – Intuition Explained

e3288974d12f8bd2f71d27f409a581b3Have you ever had a ‘hunch‘ that you should have done something, or not done something? Have you followed the hunch or have you ignored it?

If you ignored it, have you noticed that some time later when something happens you have found yourself saying, ‘Doh! I wish I had listened to my gut instinct, my hunch.”
And then you find yourself promising to pay greater attention to your intuition in the future, and then the same thing happens again?
I am prepared to bet that most of you reading this are nodding your heads.
That’s what I’m going to address here. It is important, in fact I think it’s such an important subject that it is fast becoming one of the major elements in my coaching program.
Last night I was inquiring into the nature of ‘the hunch’ with Amoda. It was born out of our intimate relationship and my own experiences, almost daily, of suddenly speaking what she is thinking, and also the times when we both have ignored our ‘hunch’ and how it always leads to wrong choices.
The hunch is obviously our intuition.
