… you can see where you are. 

When you are surrounded by others, your view is blocked. 

I used to think I knew who I was and how I fit into the whole when I lived in NYC, but in reality, I couldn’t see anything. 

When you are alone, you have clear sight. But when you are surrounded by others, your view becomes muddied. It’s muddied because you only see yourself as a reflection of someone else. You do not have true clarity. True clarity only comes when you only see you. Anyone else around you is just a distraction from you knowing yourself. 

Most of us never know who we truly are. We are too busy competing with others around us (on social media) trying to prove to ourselves that we are better than them. But when you are constantly comparing yourself to those around you, you lose a bit of yourself. You turn that energy over to others and no longer have access to it. You give them your power. And why would you do that? Why would you not keep the integrity of your own power?

People can become distractions, albeit beautiful distractions, to us finding our way in the world. If you truly want to know yourself, step away from the crowd. You are not them. You will just get swallowed up and lost in that crowd.

Being alone is a chance to re-align yourself to who you truly are. When you no longer have the distractions of others, you can better see where you are headed.

… you don’t understand it.

A reaction is an emotional response to some stimuli or trigger. If you become triggered, that trigger is yours. But when we lack consciousness, we immediately blame another for triggering us; we think it’s their fault.

We all come to this planet with certain life lessons (a.k.a. certain buttons to be pressed which help to bring up our issues). It’s your dance partner’s (lover, sibling, friend, boss, etc..) job to push those buttons so that your shadows can surface and you can identify your work and begin processing it.

Getting triggered is a gift if you are awake and conscious. It can be a living hell if you’re projecting it out onto another. If you feel the need to react with heated emotions, you have not allowed yourself to process the trigger properly. You’ve avoided doing the personal process work and conveniently chosen to project your failures onto another.

Are you easily triggered/angered these days? It’s no one else’s fault. There’s nothing to take offense to. The work lies within yourself. Whenever you feel justified in angrily blaming another, recognize that it is YOU who needs to look in the mirror.

If you’re reacting to it, you don’t understand it. Go deeply within yourself and ask yourself why you are so upset? What are you really reacting to?

Where there is consciousness, there can be healing. When you truly understand a comment and where it’s coming from, there’s no need to react to it. There is only space for calm discourse.

… sees through the web of lies.

Earth is a schoolroom. We are here to learn and to have an experience of ourselves in this 3D matrix of illusion. We are not meant to get lost in the illusion.

In this matrix, we are creating our reality with every word, thought and action we take. While in this matrix of illusion, we are searching for the truth of who we are, which becomes difficult when that illusion becomes hijacked with lies and deceit.

The seeker is only here to remember who they are. They seek truth, not just in themselves, but in the world around them. As with every classroom, there are tests along the way. Not everything the seeker experiences will be true to their soul. Discernment becomes a tool of enlightenment. So every good seeker must learn how to question everything. Truth vs. illusion… what is real to me? It only takes one slip up to give your authority over to a false god (gov’t, health authority), or a false prophet (media, corporations) and you can easily lose your way.

The seeker of truth, sees through all the lies. Never give your discernment away to any power outside of you. If you are truly seeking truth, you will never cease asking questions because you will see that the more you know, the more you realize you don’t know anything. If you think you know it all, you will forget to seek the truth and you will accept anyone else’s truth as your own. Keep questioning your reality until it makes sense. You are the one responsible for the truth you hold, no one else.

… are opposite sides of the spectrum of human experience.

Love is the natural innate response of humanity and hate is conditioned by a society. When a human loves themselves and respects themselves and respects the world around them, hate cannot exist within their cypher. But when a soul does not know how to love or respect themselves or love/respect the world around them, they are easily programmable by a societal machine driven by hate.

How do you know the difference? Love has nothing to prove whereas hate has everything to prove.

Hate wants to prove that it is better than you.

Hate wants to prove that you are less than. 

Hate wants to prove that you are wrong.

Hate wants to prove that you are evil, selfish, narcissistic, malevolent — all mirrors of it’s own dark shadow. 

Hate is filled with anger and it is easily triggered by love. 

and

Hate parades itself as love. It isn’t genuine to the human soul so it pretends to be something it is not. 

Love has no agenda. It has nothing to prove. It isn’t filled with venom and fake virtue. It just is. It allows for everyone to stand together despite their differences and it allows everyone to just be and to be in their own consciousness while they are growing, learning and unraveling their own karma without judgment of themselves or others. Love and hate are opposite sides of the spectrum of human experience. Where do you dwell these days? #belove

… they make us better.

In fact, those bad times make us stronger, wiser and smarter. They push us to expand beyond our horizons and develop new skill sets. They don’t allow for complacency. They demand transformation.

The bad times are indeed the best times, but unfortunately many people only appreciate the good times. They want things to be easy and laced with rainbows and butterflies. But rainbows and butterflies don’t promote growth, they reward it.

Many of us shut down in the face of bad times. We numb ourselves from having to face the pain. But that only succeeds in keeping us stuck in a numbing void where we never grow.

Transformation is the path forward and although everyone wants to be transformed to some extent, no one wants to go through the pain of the transformational process. It’s never easy and generally requires sitting into the pain until it can be transmuted into higher frequencies.

The next time you want to feel victimized because you are stuck in some bad times, remember that the bad times are actually the best times, they make us stronger, better and wiser. They push us to become the being we are here to become. They push us to see what we are capable of. And the good times? Well, they are just the rewards for having done the work. Game on.

… all around us.

In our world today, we are in the process of a paradigm shift which makes it quite an intense time. The good thing is that we are moving to a much higher level of consciousness (a higher vibration/frequency). The bad thing is that this higher level of consciousness has a tendency to disrupt everything and every system around us that cannot hold the same high frequency. Whatever is discordant around us is now disintegrating right in front of us.

When consciousness lifts, it rattles everyone and everything that is sitting at a lower vibrational rate of consciousness. This is why we have seen so much personal and global chaos this past year. But like anything else, we always have the choice as to what we focus on. If you focus on the drama and fear it/feed it, you will perpetuate more of it in the world, but if you focus on understanding that the drama is just playing out as a consequence of better days to come, you become empowered to make new choices and help to shift the energy.

You get what you think about whether you want it or not. Keep shifting your perspective. Stay aware and empowered to bring more light to the planet but do not feed the chaos. A much brighter world is dawning. Are you ready?

… but not mandatory, for growth.

The only constant we have in life is change. We are only here to grow through experiences and to learn who we really are which is aspects of the creator (God).

The nature of reality is change. As long as we are alive on this planet, our lives need to continually expand and evolve and transformation is a critical part of that growth.

Everyone wants to be transformed, but not everyone wants to do the work to transform an aspect of their life. Most prefer to stay stuck and stagnant in a situation that has outlived it’s purpose.

There are 2 ways in which as humans, we can transform. We can transform in a “good” way or a “bad” way. Good and bad are just human labels to describe a process of transformation; they are not realities.

The fact is that we are always in control of how we grow. In the “good” way, we can get out ahead of the curve and recognize that we are feeling stuck/stagnant in our lives and push ourselves outside our comfort zone to make some sort of change.

But many of us tend to evolve and transform in a “bad” way which is awaiting the universe to come from behind us and push us outside our comfort zone via a crisis which undoubtedly pushes us towards transformation. 

Either way, you will transform — either on your timeline or the universe’s. Crisis are critical, but not mandatory. How do you choose to evolve?

… is the one who keeps coming back.

No one wants to deal with wolves, yet we all continually feeds these vicious, merciless beasts until they overtake us.

The wolves are your emotions — good wolves and bad wolves. Wolves are energetic constructs (emotional states) and they require our thoughts as food to fuel them. Our good wolves are the positive emotions of inspiration, passion, purpose, love and joy, etc.. The bad wolves are the anxiety, fear, anger, depression, and worry, etc..

It’s much easier to feed the bad wolves and think you are keeping yourself safe and away from harm. But it doesn’t work that way. The wolf you feed is the one who keeps coming back for more. If you continually feed negative emotions, those emotions will get bigger and bigger until they swallow you whole.

If you simply stop feeding negative emotions, they have to go somewhere else for fuel.  If you take your energy off the negative emotions, you lessen the chances of getting eaten by the very wolves you were feeding.

It’s the law of attraction — you get what you think about whether you want it or not. The wolf you feed is the one who comes back for more. Ask yourself if you want that wolf in your life? If the answer is no, stop feeding him. When you take your thoughts off the things that upset you, you starve them and marginalize their influence over your life. Hungry wolves don’t hang around very long. When they realize there is no more food, they leave and most likely never come back.

… it’s always taking you somewhere else.

Life is an uphill climb and it’s made up of many steps. There is no single step that is ever going to be forever. So why allow yourself to get tripped up over the step you’re on?

You’re never meant to get stuck on a step and you’re never meant to skip steps. Life moves in phases and when you’re finished with one step, it’s time to take the next one. But many of us get disheartened because we are unhappy with the step we’re on. It’s ok to dislike the step you’re on, you’re not meant to be on it forever — just keep climbing — you’re always on your way somewhere else and that step is a necessary evil in getting you there.

… but if you’re patient, it’ll work out even better.

Patience is the name of the game. Life is a delicate balance of effort and surrender and when we push against what isn’t working, we only create more resistance for ourselves. 

The ability to observe what is and not get caught up into wanting it to be different is the gift of wisdom. We may not be able to change what is happening to us in this moment, but we can absolutely change our reactions to what is happening and that reaction is what will create our next experience.

Life is a series of moments. What happens when things don’t work out the way you want them to? Do you spend your time and energy rallying around the injustice of it all or do you put your energy into moving forward so you can create a better experience in your next moment?

Life doesn’t always work out the way you want it to but if you accept that “it is the way it is,” you give yourself the ability to create change in the next moment. You are never going to change what happened, but if you surrender to it, accept it and recognize that you prefer to have a better experience next time, you will be on your way to creating it for yourself.
