Changes In Your Life

With us being in the New Year, think about the changes that you want to make in your life. What do you like? What do you hate? What’s so-so? In some ways its similar to cleaning out your closet. What do you want to do, but haven’t had much time for? By making incremental changes you can start to chip away and make the life you would really like.

Do you like where you live? Like the location but maybe not how your house looks. Can you do a remodel or would you rather live in a different house? People in our life, are they changing with us or are you finding that you have nothing in common? By pulling somethings apart and taking a closer look at whats working and whats not.

Take small bite size changes, this way its easier to see if your going in the right direction or if things are starting to fall apart? If you’re a feeling person this will be easier for you. Feel how these changes feel to you. Are you getting anxious? calmer or excited. If you are feeling panicked in any way. Back off from those changes. Changes should not send you into panic mode.

If you going into panick mode don’t move forward. We have fear in our life for a reason. It’s to prevent us from jumping into danger. Anyone that pushes you to go into a panick mode isn’t a smart person to have in life decisions. Change will feel different, but it should either make you feel calm or excited. Before making changes in your life, you might want to check in and see how you feel about it before making the change.

Having calmness in your life is a good gage. It means that your making sound or good decisions. Change should not bring on a panick attack. If your learning a new skill and only understand the minimum. It might be a good idea to work under a person who has those skill sets mastered until you feel more comfortable.

Things that are less risky financially, can be played with or tweaked to see what works or what doesn’t. Unless you can find a mentor, who is doing something that you’re trying to do. Just remember there are many ways to change and learn things.

Sometime Spirits Message Takes Awhile To Catchup

Tonight I was thinking about a very weird spiritual experience I had in my early twenties. It was around 4 am, because all the fun things happen around that time. I was in bed sleeping and when I felt my hair blowing and standing on edge. I could feel this arctic cold blast of air blowing. The thing was, this air was coming from an inside wall. I remember becoming fully awake and being terrified of where this air was blowing from. I tried to breathe as quietly as possible. My hair was blowing and standing on edge. I had goose bumps on my air with fear.

I remember hearing in my head the golden key. Hears where the real irony comes in. In 2006 I renamed my business from Tarot by Penny to Raven Hawke. I renamed it because I was adding healing to my business. I also kept seeing a raven and hawk together over and over. I took this as a sign to be the new name for my business. I soon had to think of a mission statement. I then decided to name it “Spiritual Change for Positive Growth”. For whatever reason, I decided to look up what the golden key meant.  There are several stories and meanings. It is very ironic that two stories each have a part of the mission statement.

Who knew, I’d name it after different aspects of the golden key? I had a similar experience with one of my paintings. In 2015 I was painting Nefertiti in water colors. I couldn’t think how to spell her name at the time when I was titleing the painting; so I just settled on signing it Beauty. Later when I looked up her name, it means beauty.

I will say that being on a spiritual journey is never dull. It will be challenging and you will sometimes wish you had a manual. This journey is unique to you and you alone. That’s why sometimes our paths are meant to be walked alone. This is about getting to know yourself and knowing Spirit on a personal level. These are things, that religion can never truly teach you.

Your are never being judged on this journey! There is no pass/fail? This is your personal journey to allow yourself to grow and learn. There is no right or wrong decision-making. It is about getting more comfortable in your own skin. It is making the best decisions at the time for you. After all who else could you be? This is your journey and it does not ask permission or acceptance. It is about making it the best journey for you. It’s about finding peace within yourself.

Cleaning Your Space

Most people dust and vaccuum their home and keep it clean. Some not so much? When you have different people in and out of your home and personal space. That energy become absorbed in your energy field and your home.  This energy can affect how people interact with you and opportunities that open or don’t open up to you.

Just like you would shower everyday. You might want to pay attention to the energy around you. Using real incense or a smudge bundle can help get rid of this energy. Pay attention to how your incense smells next time you burn it. If it smells sour for any reason you might want to start to burn a purifying incense or a sage bundle to purify your space.

When you burn your incense again after the purification. It should not smell sour. If it does, you have more clearing to do. Salt is a purifier as well.  You might want to put salt in a small container such as a votive container.  This will absorb any heavy or negative energy that has come in with you.

The Veil is Thinning

The dimensions between the realities is getting thinner. When you go to sleep are you just dreaming or going to anther reality? More and more individuals are having other experiences on other dimensions instead of just going to sleep. Parallel dimensions, some of the people their seeing there are people that they know in this reality and some they know from other realities.

Almost like living a double life only you jumping from one to the other. The story lines are very real. Food, conversation and events. You can feel and experience everything just like being awake. Time lines are starting to crash together. some will be premonitions, others will just be other events that are unfolding behind the scenes.

Which is real? That’s just it! Both!

Tis the Season

If your under unbelievable stress because of the season. Take a step back and reevaluate your life. You don’t have to live up to anyone’s expectations. The season is really supposed to be about spending time with friends and family. This means enjoying each other. The present thing is a commercialization of the season. Too many people have forgotten what the holidays are supposed to be about.

This might allow you to start to get some breathing room. This is about creating your own traditions. It supposed to be fun! Not stressful! If your family is all about the presents and gifts that okay. This is not a judgement! The holidays have basically been hijacked by the retailers with their marketing campaigns to guilt you to buy.

Some families are in different financial situations. Some haven’t noticed a change in theirs. If you have been hit hard by finances where your holding on by a shoe string. Your priorities are still in survival mode. Many people are just trying to keep a roof over their heads. A nice way to celebrate the season might be to play board games this season. Some of you might not have a clue what a board game is. Reading a book that embraces the season might be a nice choice for the family or if your solo. See no cost ideas. It doesn’t have to be about spending money and it shouldn’t be!

As we get closer to the Solstice and the Holiday Season, please just enjoy your family and friends. Share food or time with each other. If you enjoy food, just take time to enjoy the process of creating the food. It’s also a good time for family to each prepare part of the meal or making cookies or deserts together. Take time to enjoy eating together. If your thing is to watch a seasonal movie together then go for it.

Wishing you a warm and loving holiday.

Going Within

There are many of us, who have no clue who we really are? We don’t know how life works for us. What do I mean by that? Well most of us have been surrounded by others and never had a moment to intimately get to know ourselves. If you’re an empath, this can be its own kind of hell. Picking up everyone’s shit. Thinking that your depressed when your picking up on the people who live with you. Having headaches that aren’t yours.

You might have no idea what I’m talking about. Everyone should be required to live by themselves to actually get to know themselves. This means finding out what stuff is really yours and what is not. What stuff is just bleeding off another and dumping onto you. One thing, that I’ve learned is that the things I used to think were mine. Were in fact someone elses. That means facing the dark side of yourself and giving it a great big wet one.

Society, likes to shove all their dogma down our throats as though it is a fact. When really it is a form of control and shaming. A way to make people feel like shit about themselves so they won’t stand up for themselves. Won’t have more self-confidence. Once you intimately get to know yourself. You will never go back.  You learn that those parts, that you’ve been told are un-loveable are really strengths that have yet to be accepted.

When you start to accept all of who you are? You will find that you are finally becoming a whole person. That part of yourself that you wanted to eliminate will stop having its tantrums; when you finally accept it and allow it to play in more healthy ways. Sounds like parenting a child! In a way, it very much is. Reading parenting books might sound crazy but if you want to win this war that will be your best course.

This will help you integrate your shadow side, it will allow you to get to know yourself without judgement. Everyone hates to be judged, the shadow is no different. Schedule time with yourself so that you can start to allow it to heal and play. Think you’re the only one that didn’t get the manual on how the world works for you. Trying to move forward when no doors or window will open up. Many will say it’s all about taking action. If you’ve already taken many actions. Then you might want to examine what area of your life hasn’t had attention for sometime.

This answer might be about getting out in nature. It might be about actually taking time to enjoy live instead of allowing it to pass you by. When was the last time you actually played. Play isn’t only for children. After all that demon that you call your shadow didn’t just come out of no where. It came from being ignored and suppressed because it’s not acceptable. It is part of you whether you like it or not. It will come out less with less drama when it’s allowed to play more.

Play also allows you to move forward when everything else has been tried. Especially when your stuck tight and not knowing what you’re doing wrong. Play can be playing ball, listening to music, playing musical instruments. Writing, drawing or even painting. When we get out of balance our lives can suddenly seem like its hitting the pavement.

Most of us, were never taught what balance is? We only start to realize its out of control, when it starts to take on a life of its own. This is why the key is to get to know yourself so you can try to steer your life in the direction you want it to go.

Trying New Things?

There is nothing wrong with trying new things as long as it’s not triggering anxiety. If you’re trying something way out of your comfort zone. You might want to evaluate if it’s just the learning curve or if there financial risk that’s associated with it.

If you already have the foundation in place that’s one thing. If you don’t have any of the skill sets and its unfamiliar territory. Maybe its time to take a step back and not venture into this venture.

Trying new things should never cause severe anxiety attacks. If it does your not on the right track. Always listen to your inner guidance. It’s there for a reason. New things, should give you excitement or a calmness. These are internal gauges to know if your just spreading your wings a bit.

The advice from many books about, how if you don’t understand something. Don’t invest in it is a very wise one. If your going to try something out of your comfort zone, do it in baby steps. This way with each step you are building your confidence and not jumping off a cliff. There are so many ways we each can grow as a person each day. This growth can come in learning, reading or experiencing something new.

Make a list and mark it one through ten. One being easy or in your personal comfort zone. Ten being a bit of a stretch for you. The tenth one might be broken down into bite size pieces until can accomplish it with ease.
