Protect yourself

I have been a student of spiritual and personal development for many years now and still get goosebumps when a concept “clicks” inside me, making me smile so hard as I just get it.  I love that experience.

Recently I had a moment of that and I’d really love to share it with you.

For many of us life is a constant practice of keeping “on top” of life,  a task of keeping the head above water.  Taking some time out from that practice allows us to refocus on the real nature of life,  remembering that we are amazing beings having a limited physical experience,  yes. Read that line again, limited experience.

As a young child I knew there was more that the visible, the measurable.  I suspected more was out (And in) there, yet when I questioned this suspicion I was told that this line of thought was dangerous,  the occult and black magic this way lie!

Wow!

I was, as a young child given a fear which for a while suspended my investigations. I felt like I had been warned off,  back off,  don’t ask questions.

But that didn’t last long…

A while later I found a bible and started to read parts of it.  I was around nine or ten at the time and my parents came into the room. “don’t read that,  it’s not something you should get involved in.”

Something clicked,  we fear anything we cannot understand.  I put that book down and began to imagine the true nature of reality and how we are kept out of that and I found this conclusion. Fear of the unknown stops us knowing,  fear what you cannot see, stay in the dark.

Many years later I joined a spiritual “circle”

I was told in the strongest terms to protect myself, “from what? “  I asked.

“there are dark energies out there.”

I remembered that bible and the responses to my childhood questions,  I felt a sense of sadness that, once again I was facing someone in fear and trying to feel safe in that fear was attempting to pull me into it with them.  I sat in that circle one time only and was sad to see the energy of it and the others within in.

Over the years I have met people who believe there will be a second coming, alien invasion, disaster and they and their group will be the saviours of the land. On the appointed date nothing happens and then the delusion shatters.

I always wondered why people would fall for this delusion until one day I spoke to a professor of literature.   “We are all basically tuned into the idea of struggle, overcoming or giving into it,  transcending pain or giving pain is a basic device in all stories. “

It made sense. We are all used to the concept of good and bad.  Right and wrong,  if I am good there must be a bad.

In the current vernacular the term lightworker is common. Even this suggests working against darkness yet the dark is not bad.  Stepping into the dark will heighten our senses, tap into your instinct and slow you down.   The dark is where you can really find yourself. We need to elevate ourselves from the need to be good, right or on a side because in a world of duality one standpoint attracts and creates the opposite.  The more we affirm our rightness we invoke the potential of wrongness.  I know people who are so spiritually aware that they cannot function in the material world,  that is not the way to be.  We are here I  the mondial to experience it all and to also remember we are the very thing we are seeing and feeling too.

Living with the need to distance and protect yourself will simply bring into your experience the very energies you fear,  you create it.  There are times when we need to be aware, even to withdraw. That is the task of your awareness. Being in the moment so allow you to feel when to be guarded. Remember a skilled martial artist does not walk around tense, always in ready stance. No,  they are relaxed and enjoy life,  only when the need arises will they act.

We create our own reality, make sure yours is calm and chilled.

Protect yourself by being one with everything not by shutting yourself off. WIN_20170522_10_00_04_Pro

The mindset of power & success

Life is for some a thing which happens around them, to them sometimes.  For many of us life is hard,  a series of events to “get through”

Yet some other of us will open their eyes each day and say “bring it! “  and here is the secret to energizing your life.  Mindset!

Mind set is a powerful term, to set one’s mind so as to maximise their potential, their experience and indeed their own lives is massive, imagine you had the power to do this to set and seal your mind so as to win your goals,  to get the maximum from each hour of your experience.   How would that look,  feel and be?

For many years I have studied energy medicine and related arts. In particular chi gung and tai chi.   Chi gung teaches that the mind is a tool which must be mastered. Just had a skilled fighter masters the sword, allowing maximum effect with minimum movement,  the mind is trained to be totally at your command.

But wait,  is your mind not you?

               Who is controlling the mind?

The term mind.  It’s tricky as mind is not brain, is not thought it is more akin to a field influenced by potential, perception and belief.

So, in very simple language, when I am faced with a new potential I have two choices;

See it as totally new and go forward to investigate its potential or,

See it through the filter of memory, past experience and retreat or worse move forward treating it as if it were the past.

Belief is powerful.  It sends nations to war!   So we must understand where our belief comes from in order that we do not become slave to it.

Perception is based upon belief.  Both perception and belief effect potential.  Your potential is you!  The limits of you are belief and perception,  change these and you will energise your potential.

To begin to “set” the mind is to become aware of the limits one allows upon it.  Allow is an important term,  we allow,  we are always in mastery of our minds, most of the time we just practice badly.  This is seen in pessimists who’s mantra is  “what’s the point. It never works.” And when it does fail they rejoice in the “see, told you so! “

Why do some seem to always win and even when it goes off plan they Still come back winning?  It’s the mind set.  Success is all there is,  in what ever firm it shows up in I learn from it, I grow from it.  To set the mind

  1. Never see failure, instead find the learning in the experience.

  2. Ponder the immense miracle that you are!  How you came to be here, now is so impossible yet it all happened so easily,  what IS really impossible?    Even if you can imagine it and have no idea how to make it happen yet,  you will soon. So, for now make a version of it.

  3. Always be aware that you are the watcher of thought.  Sometimes the maker of thought but mostly for now the watcher, when you become aware of this you become the seer, the seer of the thought which is no more than an influential pressure upon your infinite potential.    Spent some time each day as the passive watcher, be aware of the negative thoughts and their impact on your state of being.  These are limiting you in every moment and your most important mission is to guard against these slipping into the field of your potential.  As you become stronger you will notice a quiet calm bestow its self upon you.  You will awaken to stillness and here the seer becomes aware of true consciousness.

  4. Consider this, we live life the wrong way round.  We act on external stimuli which friend out our own potential.  Practice flowing out and allowing flow in. Be decerning. Never accept dross and negative energy into your sacred self.

  5. There are 3 tasks for you to master.  The seer, the keeper of the gate and the potential.   Go slowly in your training and your potential, your instinct and insight will expand.

To end I would love to share some words;

Devine am I inside and out, whatever I touch is so too.

Starmade are we, impossible made mundane, never forget the miracle you hide within your form. Never forget all that you experience is magical, it simply reflects your potential.
