Tomorrow at the Room at Meadowbrook we have a whole day of free Holistic Classes. I start the day sharing Tai Chi health at 9 am. All martial arts come from QiGong, the Chinese Medicine of movement. The Dragon Gate Line of Tai Chi I am in, uses Qigong movements for a morning awakening practice. They stimulate your organs and meridians in a gentle way to get your body going. You feel a smooth, alert energy that gives you peace and aliveness for the day. I use this as my movement rather than some challenging workout.
In the west, we are educated that movement must be hard, long and unpleasant to find health and that simply is not true. In the Eastern traditions, especially for woman, movement gives us connect to our body lovingly and supports health and detox. It doesn't need to strain us. Mostly connect us positively. Feeling good, alert, alive and activated in vitality. Hard workouts are more for men for they thrive on the muscle, competitive and adrenaline based activities. Woman like the flowing, gentle ways for their body is designed that way. Dance being the one activity that all woman should enjoy for health. Free flowing is the best, where the body deva, our innate health system gets to move as it wants to release unwanted emotions through grace and ease. It is sacred, easy for we can do our own level and certainly physical in a way that we enjoy in pleasure.
Self care involves moving our body in ways pleasing. Our lymph system has no pump and removes all the toxins so movement supports that detox. Often overweight people have issue with holding onto fluid which appears as fat when they are just not regulating the fluid in their bodies properly. Hard workouts put us in adrenal stress as woman when we are seeking ways out of that and into parasympathetic. Using movement not workouts fares better with feminine health. You may look healthy but inside, your body will eventually run into issues for our adrenals get burnt out from the masculine movements. It just is.
Using the outside as part of your movement connects you to mother nature which is filled with feminine vibes of beauty, becoming, nourishing and growth. Oxygen is fresh, the sensuality inspires and supports us to ground in our bodies. Negative ions are present to balance all the positive ions of our homes and technology. The spaciousness provides an opening of our minds, clearing the unwanted chatter. Presence is easy for us all there.
Our bodies need to move to detox, release emotions, burn stored up energy and shift about our energy field. It doesn't have to be hard for all these benefits can come from flowing in easy ways that inspire us to appreciate the body deva and give it support to do its work. The easier we move, the more we move, the easier it gets, the more we do it. These are important ways to adjust and shift ourselves. We don't need hard regimens or body building techniques unless that is an art that you enjoy. I like to use my body as efficiently as I can so when I want to play at skiing, hiking, bike riding or kyaking,, I am in good shape to support me. I do not participate in hard workouts. It is against my feminine body and I support me in health understanding this concept of flow for woman.
Do use your movements to support your emotional, mental and physical body in ways gentle and enjoyable. Working out doesn't get you to lose weight as fast as eating healthy amounts and good food. I spent my younger years doing all the extreme workouts and it will not reshape you. Food reshapes you. Movement strengthens your body in so many more ways than power. Power is not necessary for most woman. They just need to move to flow, feel good, release emotions and have health and beauty.
I highly suggest using movement in these ways if you want to feel magical, sexy and beautiful. These are the gifts of femininity that will help woman feel good, vital and magnetize their life into fulfillment.

Friends, mentors, connections and like minded folks are so valuable. Self care is knowing who to keep around you in life and who to let go. I grew up in the community I now live. I had known many of the same high school friends for over 30 years and they were valuable for most of my life. We had an incredible loyalty and acceptance for each other that many never get to experience. I added people along the way but generally my community was the same until about 8 years ago.
Shifting directions for us all at some point changed things. Behaviors and interests became different and who knows what Karma was involved that the main system of support I had began to change and drop away. It was a big challenge for me. New people more in line with what I am doing and where I am going came along but having a group for so long made it a challenge to let go. Slowly, however from my spiritual study and divorce, things shifted dramatically. I went more inward, distance came between some of my greatest long time friends and lessons to be learned created new community.
I can only take all things as perfect and divine so I walked through this phase realizing things were different and what was so important at one point in my life was no longer so valuable to my self development. We all go through a change in friendships somewhere along the way so you know the hardship this can be. Trying to understand doesn't always have an answer so you find letting go of the old, honoring it, letting it be and calling it complete is a good support for yourself. Married clans hang out with married clans. Friends move away, another's husband passed, things change is the law. I speak with many woman and this is a challenge for us to allow this break in relationship as community holders.
Although this felt bad, harder when the same crew is as your network for so long, you keep walking and seek to find those people who will flourish you now. We all change, marriages end, new ones begin, careers change, where you live shifts, this is just how it goes. We are evolving and growing so we will change our environments about us. It is important we grasp this on all levels, allow it to occur and try to keep the emotions of these changes to a minimum. Feel the sadness, the loss but keep going knowing when one thing is lost another greater thing is made room for.
This eclipse has been true clearing of things for the last 9 or so years. I felt this most in my circle of people. New spiritual people and missions came in and over time, many of my normal supports have fallen off. I understand with my mind the value to these things, the changes within and without yet often our emotions, memories, loyalty and feeling of a clan mentality create deep loss. As I feel this, I direct myself to those that are support now. Seek greater experiences for yourself in the space of now rather than yesterday or way back when. It is no longer then. Life is fresh and new each day, there is no better or worse, just different experiences.
I inspire you to take inventory of those you have had in your life. Honor those that where there and those that moved on. Don't hang on to things that have shifted. It is a level of being in the past that doesn't support you forward. This has been a great lesson for me. Allow what is and has happened to be. Find peace and know there is purpose in it and that it will come forward down the road. Change is not always easy at first, but it is always occurring and we do great self care by flowing with it. Even if a part of us wants to hang on, it won't work. Keep going, seeking the next joy, the next connect, mentor, friend. We have more struggle and low energy going over the past, trying to hold onto it than we do by moving forward.
Self care is finding the right perspective for the people in your life. Maybe there are draining people in your life now that you need to re-evaluate and stop considering loyalty, past fun is the reason to stay connected. History is good but we change, evolve and we need our friendships and connects to be just that. People are powerful influences in our life. We need to only cultivate those relationships that fuel and inspire us to be our best. Those that hold the past against you or create more drama than fun are to be let go.
We have only so much time and if you have personal strife with one, maybe it is time to move forward to newer supports. Not as easy as it sounds but in the long run you are expanding with change and others that will love and support you in your becoming will show up. I have watched it happen for myself. The only thing that stops this being a joyous process is the hanging on.
Open yourself for the next leg of connections. It is time for our purposes to be expressed and often that will be different than the crew you grew up with, raised your kids with or lived in the same neighborhood. Soul families are coming forward to support us in our divine mission so make room for it. It is for the highest good and you will delight in it if you truly let go of what was. Say goodbye, thank you for all we had and open to those who you will be riding with next!

On Tuesday, I got the opportunity to do a float in a salt water tank. BStill Float in Ottsville offers an excellent experience at a reasonable price. I had done it there once before but this time, I got lost for almost 2 hours in the tank. It is a spacious individual experience. I love the Russian Bayan as a health practice and highly recommend this as well. My top two deep healing water experiences.
We all know the benefits of salt to remove negativity. The salt caves and rooms cropping up everywhere are truly a gift to us. We can use these cool experiences to support ourselves and alleviate the toxins inside as well as about us. Easy, meditative, proven and a graceful break from life to relax and slow us down. I am all for these things for they support our body in the parasympathetic nervous system of rejuvenate, renew, rebuild, relax, refresh and heal! Even soaking our feet in Epson Salts supports us greatly.
The salt float is an amazing experience to feel the bouyancy of your body. To feel held, comfortably supported in water like never before, in this cocoon, truly a healing experience. You get a chance to go easily inward with less challenge for the salt supports removing negativity on all levels, the mind settles. The rhythm of your breath calming. Your heart beating melodic and grounding. A great tap inward in a way that is simple and no work. These are the things I like to do for health, healing, self care. They are just peaceful ways of regeneration.
I went in with an intention to figure something out. I meditate, so it was easy for me to be in there an hour at the least. Yet the answers to my question were not coming forward. I asked for support from other levels, and there seemed to be just nothing. I thought, patience, be still and know God as is said, I will wait here for an answer and take Divine timing. At some point Lakshmi, The Goddess of Abundance on all levels showed up. I asked her why she was there for she didn't seem a solution to my issue. I could feel different pains in my body. I asked them to share with me what created them, what I was supposed to see. Still nothing.
There was a weight in my high heart, as it is called, where our thymus in located. I asked to have it lifted but nothing happened. Finally I just took my hands and while I floated, started to massage this area with the idea, I will do something with this. In that moment I realized the whole time I was waiting for myself to do something. I was the one to take the power and support myself. Sounds easy but it was a true revelation. Suddenly a bout of forgiveness came over me. I was forgiving everything and everyone with an explosion of thoughts in my mind. It was fast and rambling while I massage my heart, my knee, my hand, all may pains.
I realized why Lakshmi came in. To remind me that we have the Sri, the wholeness, the essence of all within. She was requesting that I take my power and stop limiting myself. It was me who is not using all I have. That was the answer and this lightness and joy was filling in me. All the while I was peacefully, buoyantly floating. Magical feelings and smiles where in every cell of my body. About that time, the music came on. An indication it is time to get out. I felt confident and imagined my Queenly state. I have so many visions of being a Queen with many jewels. I was in it.
Whether this was an imaginary experience or a real adventure into the deeper parts of me does not matter. I felt open and lifted, buoyant beyond just floating but in mind, body, emotions and tapped into my true spirit. The essence of my own, unique greatness. I climbed out, rinsed off in the shower and my outward body was soft, glowing, rejuvenated and beautiful. It was a magical experience!
To my delight, I also was blessed with a sound bath healing by Michael after I came out. Having the sound of the bowls, other instruments and a digeridoo play upon my sacred body temple was just astounding. It cleared out any other remnants in my field. I felt the vibrations, the sound swirl my body in such a sensual way. I had never experienced the bowls all around me in a personal sound bath. Delicious!! I highly recommend.
As I drove home feeling clear, clean, loved, lovable, peaceful and sparkly, I realized how blessed I am to be so curious. To try these arts out there, find new modalities and masterful healers. I had an incredible day of being with me and caring for myself. Getting to know myself and experience myself in ways I never had before. I even felt the Queenliness of me. The wonderful Queen I am of my own dominion. My sparkle bright, my eyes clear and a inward smile of how wonderful it is to be me in my power!

We lose energy by having things incomplete around us. Although we may not notice it clearly, we are drained by these open projects. To experience this drain, think of an area of your home where you walk by and a feeling of "I must clean that up" comes in. These are energy drains for us, as is a book that is unfinished or a pile of things to be put away. These may seem minimal but for your basic animal self, the doer of tasks, will drain your energy with an open cord until it is done.
This is one of the secret energy drains that is continually streaming through us and can exhaust our energy. We all know these spaces about us or within, that nag us in a subtle way. It is powerful for our vibrancy to keep these to a minimum. We can also just call them "complete for now" which supports our energetic being. If a book is unfinished or a task in process, when you put down the book or move the task a bit just say outloud, "this is complete for now". It may seem silly but it is a powerful message to your unconscious. Channels of energy remain open unless we close them. It is the same with memories, situations we are solving and emotional challenges.
This is something we can do each day, each month and I am doing this at the beginning of the year. This way we have more energy and focus for the things we are doing. In most schools of thought, we are exhausted by incompletions. All these little things on many levels add up to losing energy in big ways. It is the perfect time to start your practice of using this phrase to support you in self care. We have experienced the larger feel of this many times when we finally got something done that was weighing on us. In doing, completing, we get all this extra energy. Otherwise, we feel that "ugh" when we think of the project, idea, pile or emotional situation. This "ugh" powerfully lowers our vibration.
Today I made a list of the things that need to be finished. For a new year this is important to clear any lay around things from last year and the holiday rush. Simple stuff like changing my address at the bank, making a doctor appointment, moving my online class to the next step, writing this blog, putting soup in the freezer in small containers I made the other day. I want to paint my office soon and I have books that are calling me that I will pick up and put them down again and call them complete for now. This is such a valuable tool! Try it as you walk around your house and feel the power of calling projects complete for now even if they are in process. It is how our basic self is set up and we can easily work with it to recharge our energy.
Making this a habit, this practice of noticing what is incomplete when you feel tired is a good way to reclaim energy. It is how it works. We don't need to fully understand it other than the mind and body stay open with energy for things that are in process. We can easily reign in the energy, know when it is time it will move and that until then, you need not lose focus or concentration from our world. It is a powerful tool that supports us being in vitality and clarity. Every so often I do the list to see what small drains are plaguing me that I am unaware of. Once I make the list, just that it is on paper, I begin to get this subtle feeling of control and power.
Simple, easy, graceful way to keep yourself energized and flowing. Completions are important self care. When you finished the open lines, it is elating and euphoric pleasurably!

Boundaries are a topic that could be chatted over and over again. We all need to learn the best ways to care for ourselves and boundaries support us on many levels. As I am doing the 30 days of self care, this has come up many times. As a nurturer, a team player and one who supports humanity, this can be a challenge for me. If someone needs support, asks to play, wants me to particpate, "Yes" is the automatic response that occurs. This can be good for I am inspired or it can be not so good for I have others things that would support me better. Finding that line in each situation is key.
We have been trained to put others first, especially woman. It feels good to help and support others as well. There is a time when helping others gives us a feeling of "ugh" as we reluctanly do it. These are the times we need to feel that "ugh" and care for ourselves. That could mean that helping will create greater strife, resentment or imbalance. Later you have an expectation on someone you helped. It is your intuition supporting you with a feeling to notice and be cautious about the answer. I have over ridden this so many times only to say, you knew you got a signal and you didn't honor yourself by listening.
Each moment and situation is different. Be present in the moment and listen to your being. Some days I love to support, others I feel obligation. Some minutes I think "no" then a half hour later I feel a "yes". Tune in for this is yourself alerting yourself what is your highest good and where your boundary of support is. Just yesterday a friend asked me to do something. I wanted to support but was too tired. After I got up and moving, I suddenly thought, "I would like to do that" and ended up participating. It was great for me to and I got lifted from it. At first I said No and honored myself only to have it change. We are spirits and energy moving so pay attention. You can always change your response.
During this month of supporting me, I have encountered many situations where people wanted me to do something. Sometimes I went against my feeling for I heard the call for support and responded "sure." Some didn't work out. Others I did listen inwardly. I watched how many times my "yes" came out immediately without checking in. This was not a good way to proceed. I should always check in with myself to see if I have the energy to do it and if it feels good. Learn these boundaries.
I seem to be a magnet of these situations this month. I am indeed a caregiver so it has been a good observation to watch how I say "yes" so quickly. Saying 'no' does bring up beliefs that maybe I am not a good friend, or sister or partner. I go past that to see inwardly what I feel rather than the messages of life that go against me doing things that fuel me. It is part of this self care transformation I am in. I honor it.
Empaths especially are challenged in the boundary area. Yet what good is a gift if it exhausts you from yourself. I hear and feel others but must make certain that I have the overflow and desire to support. Otherwise, it is not good support to them or for me. Hurts, expectations, resentments come into the picture if you don't listen to yourself. I am learning this clearer and finding ways to really know what is right for me. I need to be strong to forge through all of life and I have responsibility to know how to do that. Otherwise people think you are limitless and you allowed that. No one is limitless.
Durga is the Goddess of boundaries and she fiercely defends herself, allowing in only what will nourish. We all need to embrace her within. Know when you can help, play or participate and when it is not a good idea. She protects herself and has many hands of support for she is strong and loving. She has the strength and courage of the lion . Your body, intuition, mind, emotions clearly alert you. Pay attention. Magical Self Care!

Having some spiritual study, connection or practice is self care. I don't know how I would make it through my life without this. I may be extreme compared to most but it so delights me to recharge myself. I am an initiate and minister in the MSIA. It supports me to know myself and my brilliance. It resets me. It helps me to be a better version of me. My practice is about connecting with my creator and the part of me that is pure and innocent. That loves. That is living love. We each experiecne this differently and I allow others that and find my path for me.
I had a powerful reminder of the power of this the other day. I was in normal life stuff, where there was drama, judgement and criticism toward me and my actions. I went inward and felt I was okay that what I was doing was settled with me. However, the outside, the others and hearing their ideas made me start to second guess myself. My mind and emotions wanted to take me down this ramble path that I just couldn't seem to get out of. You all know these times. I was tied in all the emotions and thinking of others as well as my own.
There was an opportunity to go to a Soul Awareness Seminar Friday eve. I knew if I went I would clear myself and find support by just attending, being with other like minded and be able to free myself or surrender whatever this Karma was. I went. We gather, put things into the Light and watch the now passed founder of the movement chat about whatever topic the seminar is. We picked one on completion and I thought perfect.
After the seminar, I was sailing in loveliness. People get this from church, meditation, retreats, prayer, so many ways we can connect with our divinity. As I left, driving away, I was so grateful. I was thanking God and Goddess for the reset back to Lyn. I was back to myself, my sparkly spirit, filled with joy and peace. Whatever all that mess was of the week, was gone. It just didn't matter anymore. I was so thankful for my studies, my school, my spiritual connect. Just as easy as going, listening and asking for support, I was back to me. The mind settled, The emotions warm. The body out of anxiety. The spirit of me in full joy.
I invite you to use your connection to whatever your spiritual study, religion, practice or faith. It is self care par excellent. It completely cleared me and reconnected me to my joy and essential nature. It is magical. I don't always realize how powerful this is. It helped me care for myself, stand for myself and be comfortable in that even if those around me are not. We won't please everyone but we must settle and please ourselves. It was delicious and today I feel exalted.
Yesssss, delicious self care day 18! Powerful support!

Guilt is a useless emotion in the schools of spirit. Why? It does nothing for anyone. If you did something to hurt someone, it is done. There is no going back so feeling bad about it does nothing for them. Feeling bad about yourself does nothing for you either. Self negation is no way to move forward, learn or become wiser. In fact, these behaviors support a lurking shadow within. It is better to forgive yourself and let go. Learn from it and anticipate you won't do that act again. It is your best way of self care.
We all hold past actions that we are not so proud of inside ourselves. We have been trained through guilt to do things that maybe we wouldn't do but we feel guilty, so we act to serve and support others when maybe that would not be our choice. Religions, people, situations use this emotion to manipulate us. If you are not willing to forgive yourself and others, you hold the past inside and it eats at you. This is not an honoring of anyone. It can create illness and the apt to occur again.
If you did something against someone and you hold guilt in as a negative emotion, by law you will attract that same vibration. You consider yourself "bad". That goes into our subconscious and it will circle about every so often to fulfill itself. It is how the emotional nature works. The vibration of negativity will fulfill itself again and again until it is let go. We think, "Why do I keep doing that over and over?" It is because you never really forgave yourself and let it go. We all are learning; we do things not so lovely. It is part of this experience. We can give ourselves and others a break that bad choices are part of learning. It is in holding it against ourselves that we don't learn and seem to return to the issue again.
Our behaviors do not determine who we are. We are spirits having a human experience. We are learning to ground that spirit of goodness here on this level. It takes some mistakes for learning. We need to be gentle when we do things wrong. We need to see the higher spirit and allow that to be nurtured so we can bring it in. We also need to do that for others. We all mess up and truly we are doing our best at any given time.
So let go of the past. It sounds easier than it is, but a practice so worthy of health and well being. No one benefits from anyone loathing. We can use the line "I forgive myself for judging myself for ..... You can use this also for others, "I forgive myself for judging so and so". This is a powerful practice that works. You keep saying it, reword it as many times that it comes forward. Allow all the stuff that comes up and keep forgiving. At one point, you will know it is let go and feel very light. You may even chuckle at it eventually. Using this practice throughout your life will support you. We can use this daily, weekly, when a big guilt comes up! Let it go!! It is does no good for anyone!
Do know others will want to hold you in guilt as well. They will logic and chat, tell you how you should feel bad for misdeeds. Move forward and let go. We can't hold our negativity with us for good health. It is not necessary to keep remembering your misdeed and don't allow others too. Yes, it is a challenge to live this but your wonder won't fully manifest if you keep holding pieces of anger at yourself and others. It is wasteful of life force, mind, emotions and health. It is over. You messed up. Another did. Don't keep giving energy to it.
Forgive yourself and others until it is done and over! We judge ourselves, others judge us and none of it really matters. We are here to honor ourselves and find our brightness so let go of anything that gets in the way. Move forward, let go, keep going! See yourself as a bright spirit learning what does and doesn't work! This is how we grow! WE RELEASE GUILT THROUGH FORGIVENESS! Be free! Delicious self care!
As an empath, one who feels the emotional current of the world, the emotions become quite a study. I believe all woman are empaths for it is a gift that comes with childbearing. Many men too. I inspire all to tap into their emotions for it is a valuable gift to sense the world. A guidance system of the energy around you. Emotions are energy moving.
We all are so good at pretending and masking our emotions, smiling when we are not happy, being kind when inside we are angry that the world is a confusing place to one using there sensing rightly. It is a gift of the body that many don't use. Unfortunately, many whether they know it not, can tell on some level that things are not as they seem yet can't quite put their finger on it. We all know this feeling. I consider that it has to do with this underlying sea of emotions that has a whole different world going on than appears on the surface.
We have been taught what is considered acceptable social behavior. We all want to follow those rules of social ettiquette. However, it is a very misleading world of what is really happening below the surface in the murky world of emotions. If we take things at face value, the situations we encounter have a much different appearance than what is really going on. We all do a great disservice to each other by not being honest about our feelings, We are energy, all connected and as our awareness gets greater, more people will understand this empathy and there is no hiding.
As one who feels this underlying current, I get confused for words are being said but the feelings in the room don't match them. I am perplexed and then begin to wonder what is really happening, why are you feeling anger when this person in front of you appears calm. Or why are they saying all is okay when I feel that they are not okay. Much of my life, I considered I just couldn't decipher the reality of things and often turned this misunderstanding of what appeared to be occurring against myself in the form of doubt. Not anymore for I clearly understand what is happening when others don't. Why it is a gift. I know what others need even when they don't.
Many empaths become addicts or get lost in medicating themselves for they feel this undercurrent so strongly. They don't know how to get away from all this negativity they feel when on the surface, there appears to be none. It can be very confusing if you don't know this gift. With feeling others emotions and they have different words that don't match what is really going on, it seems like chaos. I spent alot of my life in this confusion until I realized this gift and began to investigate it. There are many still lost with this gift having no understanding. The world is very unsettling for them.
What I find is that most people don't truly know their own emotions for a life time of pretending. Negative emotions are present and rather than speak through them or share them, most are just stuffing them down and giving forth a calm demeanor that may look that way but feels very different They call this passive aggression. With our social "how are you?' and the common "fine" answers of small talk, we do everyone a disservice. Most importantly ourselves. How are we to commune rightly if everyone is "hiding" their truth?
Knowing your emotions as the guidance they are is key to your experience here. They offer you signs on your environment, what is good, when to leave, what direction to take. With this training to pretend, we miss the gift and purpose of energy moving (emotion) and get quite confused ourselves. I find that I know what others are feeling better than they do. I can tell them but they will often disagree at first. A day or two later, they will come back and tell me after they thought about it, I was right on. At the time they fought me tooth and nail that I was wrong. I have learned to trust my sensing over their awareness.
After great study of knowing my own emotions, what they feel like, I can tell when an emotional current is in the room. I have great awareness of how I feel so if another feeling is present, it is obvious it is there. Their words may not match it but the tone of the vibration is clear. It gets complicated on how to operate when one is saying one thing yet feeling another. I used to get upset that people where not being honest. Yet now I realize they don't even know they are annoyed fully to share it anyway. Often so disconnected from their own emotional nature and unaware. How did it get to this? Our emotions are an important guidance to the world and have great purpose to inform us.
I believe many relationships, communication and connection is misunderstood between people for this Image of what we are to say and share with others. What we really think about things is not truly expressed. . Resentment, hidden anger, annoyance all get put into a relationship with no words on them. An empath is very aware of this. It is not always a good thing to feel the truth of the emotions present. People often try to pin on me their emotions that they are unaware of. I am very discerning who I want about me and often find being alone is easier.
I share this mostly as a invitation to tap into your own emotions so you can use them, this sensing to support your understanding of the world. When you know your own emotions, you can better know others without words. This may not always be a good thing, for I often battle folks on this yet in the end they are grateful for the awareness. You will at least know greater the truth of what is occurring around you in clarity even when others do not. This has been great self care for me to get out of situations quickly or avoid negativity that often the giver of it doesn't even know they are clearly sharing it with me.
The multidimensional consciousness is opening and our children are much more adept at this. This fake out culture won't last long if their sensing is as clear as mine. I am thankful for it is hard to surf the sea of emotion that is around with no one claiming it. Often they push it on me and it is really their own misunderstanding of themselves. In reality it is written on your face and in your whole body language. Discover your true emotions. It is a juicy, fun world to really feel them all rather than the few goods ones we are allowed to express!

If there is one thing I learn from consulting and mentoring others it is that they are missing the life experience here because they get so caught up in mental masterbation,. Stinking thinking is how John Rogers puts it! It may sound harsh but it is what I perceive as the issue. Stuck in thinking, not doing or doing based on their thinking that isn't clear, reality or is a imposed belief is a huge issue. I understand it for I was there too. The world trains us this way and thank goodness I was visited by those Masters of Energy so long ago on my farm. They totally shifted my experience of what is happening here.
The mind is a magic tool when used right. Most don't use it right and it is all they use. The beliefs we have, the unconscious stories and ties we created when we were small, are just not real or correct. Self awareness is realizing we have alot of BS in our minds and we get to chose what rules, ideas, beliefs we operate with. If it is not working, then find a new one! We have stories upon stories of what is real and most of it is not. We had this and that happen and we came to a conclusion that is not based in reality often. It was a protection, a small child's interpretation, a misread, a incorrect conclusion based in the light of greater awareness. We spend our whole life realizing this greater awareness of things.
I believe mind has it's place and if it is the only tool we use, we are going to have problems. We have many other tools and it is a blending of all perceptions that are going to give us the best accuracy if there can even be one. We all have different realities and operate from our own center. We often think others are coming from where we are and that is not the case. There are as many perspectives as there are people.
A key to self care is to use all of your being to make sense of this experience. No one else has the answers for us but ourselves. They have opinions that can support us maybe, maybe not. They have tools and wisdom that may work for us or may not. We get to determine what those ideas and tools are and it is our own experiment. If you don't get to know yourself, what inspires, what lifts, what lightens you are at the whim of others ideas and thinking which most likely won't bring forth your brilliance. We were made unique for great purpose. We are the only one like us, so these ideas need to be owned, determined, claimed and lived by us individually.
If you just stay with thinking, I can tell you from my experience working with others, you are missing a whole world of experience that has nothing to do with thinking and joy will elude you. We have 6 senses that are continually giving us feedback about the world that when put together give us the most accurate summation of things. Your thinking is often wrong when put with the mix of other guidance and sensing of the world. Being em-bodied, present, noticing and seeing, feeling, hearing and sensing is the way to live a life fully.
Thinking changes, perspectives shift, experience alters how we think and what we think. It is not so stable to be a one tool show. We were given a body with emotions, senses physically as well as thinking. Not using 2/3 of your tools seems to be imbalanced and inaccurate. We are in an experience here that involves a body with emotions and senses. Thinking they are not part of the purpose or equal in evaluation of the world just seems down right silly.
I encourage all of my clients to get present and notice the world and the real truth that is occurring. Make your ideas if you must about it but do notice with all your tools, all your body, what is occurring. First off, you get to experience such fun, pleasurable sensations in the simpliest of tasks. Eating is yummy. Smelling the fresh air and scents turns on the brain to greater clarity. Hearing what people are really saying because you are listening rather than thinking of stuff supports understanding. Seeing what is about you in beauty and magic brings in higher states of joy and emotion. Sensing with your intuition gives you (to me the greatest information) that what's in front of you is not always as it appears. It allows you to discern situations with what feels like a magical talent.
My message of self care today is to get out of your head and into your body. You are missing so much beauty, joy, love, kindness, fun and laughter. It is a beautiful world full of many lovely things. If you are not experiencing them or engaging in them, my guess is that you are thinking too much. You are not doing, noticing, experiencing and simply being. You can't think happiness for it is an emotional state. Or joy or love or fun or enthusiasm. They are energy. Thinking is not energy in the same way and it often is very sedentary!
Open up to all of the magic you are! Feel the world, smell the world, hear the world, see the world and experience the world. You can make thoughts about all of that but certainly don't miss the other things. You can have great joy with all those others things and thinking doesn't even need to occur! So put that in your thinking cap and smoke it! Teehee!
