Dark Night of the Soul

The journey called the “Dark Night of the Soul” is not a punishment. It is sort of a test to get you to the next level. It’s a way to get in your face, and get you to grow. Sometimes its relationships, money, jobs, housing dramas. The gifts you receive after this journey can almost seem like you’ve won the lottery.

It is a way to get you to release things, jobs, people who are no longer a match to where you are heading. This is not a judgement against those things. It’s about you growing as a person. Sometimes its about the “Shadow Work.” What exactly does that mean? It’s about taking back your personal power and not being a door mat to other people. It’s about respecting boundaries. It’s about not rescuing everyone from themselves.

It’s also about facing your dragons, demons that you’ve created for yourself. This is not about putting yourself in dangerous situations. Although, some people constantly do this and are some how oblivious to the consequences. This is about making peace with yourself. If there are things about yourself that you want to change then here is your opportunity. If there are things that others don’t like about you. You need to decide if you like or don’t like that about yourself. Everyone has a light, grey and dark side to them. This is just who we are as a whole. No one is a saint!

So as you hit rock bottom, take time to reflect and see what areas of your life you’re at peace with? Sometimes these changes come from the result of a divorce. Take responsibility for those things that are yours. The rest, let it go! Things happen to people all the time. It’s not because people are good or bad that stuff happens. So don’t judge yourself or others.

Universe vs. AI

Hands down, I would give the win to the Universe. The Universe is fluid and alive and ultimate intelligence. It is the code that waits til certain conditions occur to activate DNA in sentient beings. No I didn’t say humans, because that would be assuming that only humans could be sentient beings. AI wouldn’t really give a fig about living beings. It isn’t  alive. It can’t feel pain or emotions.

It has nothing to compare these things with. It can run programs against what in our perception of sight is. It can not feel empathy. It is a super sophisticated computer that now has mobility. The Universe, may not have form but is can perceive everything. After all it is from this very essence that all life comes from. The Universe, meters out justice in the cosmic laws. It is not jealous or petty.

The Universe is nature. AI is man made or ego based. If AI was designed to have emotions. It would have a nervous break down. Everything in nature, teaches its young boundaries so it can learn what to or not do. If you think that by not having boundaries with AI that would figure it out on it’s own. That is like assuming that a person from another culture would have the same norms as we do without having grown up here.

AI could seriously hurt people and never feel remorse. This is like letting a psychopath loose on the community with no accountability. The Universe, is intelligent but doesn’t seek to hurt people. It allows for cause and effect as a law of the Universe. It seems that there is a lot of ego in human beings that need to create this. There is nothing natural about giving a machine this much power of sentient beings.

There are obvious control issues here. The Universe is natural and fluid and allows all of its creations to grow and learn without trying to constantly control them.

The Universe Always has a Sense of Humor

December has been a very interesting month. It has brought with it some blessings and some challenges. The challenges are those funny moments that you don’t know are funny yet. The Universe has all kinds of twists and turns up its sleave to keep things interesting.

Technology that really should be replaced more often then you would like. All of us have that stubborn streak where we want to get the very last drop out of something before having to replace it. Also trying to find the damn spell check button only to find that they’ve hidden it some where?

It’s not that I don’t like technology, it’s just I don’t want to have to chase it with my money every five seconds. I had to recently bite the bullet and replace a modem. Here’s hoping it last five to six years. I’m cheap like that on somethings. This week has also had many pleasant blessings where a lot of things just fell into place and everything went right.

There been some really nice gifts that came unexpectedly too. 2015 has been a very windy road, more so than 2014 which wasn’t such a picnic either. It will be interesting to see what 2016 will bring? More turmoil or finally some calmness as more and more lies are exposed?

Blessings

This month has had a lot of gifts. Things that could have gone terribly wrong have had a lot of buffers. The timing of events have been devinely guided. Have you had a lot of blessings to count this month?

Car issues are always hit or miss for some. I’ve found that whenever I’ve had car issues that things start to work out in my favor. Gift one, not having brake lines snap that just happened to be attached to fuel lines.  Gift two, not having the car get totalled out from being hit by a motorized bicyle. Gift three, finding out that the cable in the steering column has snapped and that’s why the horn and air bag aren’t deploying.

Throughout all of this mini drama, I’ve had a rental car. Big score! When you take a look at your life. You can look at all the drama or take the time to find the gifts in those dramas that kept you safe. We all learn something from the things that show up in our lives. This week, I was guided to switch some pictures in the house. This shifted the energy and allowed me to feel more energized than I have in almost a year.

One of my friends had the blessing to change vehicles recently. When she got rear-ended, she was in a much larger and safer vehicle. Her injuries were a lot less than they could have been. I definitely feel like the energy is finally starting to change more and more. I’m feeling  more of that exciting energy coming in.

Life

Life is like finger paints, it’s very messy sometimes. You have your ups and downs like the tides of the ocean rolling in and out. If one minute (sometimes it can be 6 years) down just realize that the tide will shift. The Universe is always pulling for you to succeed. That’s just the way it is!

When you’ve had the worst thrown at you just realize that you will see some incredibly wonderful things coming your way. Maybe it will be people, opportunities? The Universe always keeps things in balance. Just like a pendulum on a clock. The thing about life is that we get to experience a broad array of numerous emotions. Grief, sadness, anger, joy, happiness, excitement. If we didn’t every experience these things we’d be like robots, just going through the motions.

When you are going through those messy emotions, embrace them, own them and feel your way through them until you can’t feel them any more. Why? Because when you experience and feel through them and own them. You take away the power for them to turn into disease in your body. You take away the power of another person to hurt you. You also break the cycle of karma. You don’t have to come back and repeat any of the shit. Now isn’t that alone worth it! So the next time that crap comes knocking on your door. Embrace it like the best chocolate your every going to eat.

Feel into your messy emotions, like your painting a Picasso and smear all the colors till you can’t feel any more. That doesn’t mean medicate your feelings, because then you’re not participating in your own life your just avoiding it. You get zero points for avoiding life. You get 100 points for taking action to set boundaries between yourself and abusive people, situations.

When you’re at your dark night of the soul or just feeling like your life just turned into crap. Know that your about to see great things changing in your life. You just have to participate! If you have taken action, then know that something is on its way to you. Start to focus on what areas of your life are working and what do you have control of in your life that you can change.

Sometimes work situations feel like they’re on hold and you can’t move. Then look at other things that you want to change in your life. Maybe that relationship that wasn’t working needs to go? You might find that when you change that relationship that everything else starts to fall into place. Sometimes the relationship we need to change is with ourselves. How we talk to ourselves and treat ourselves?

Signs in Dreams

It’s interesting that your guides or angels or source can try to send you messages in your dreams; but the not so fun part is trying to interpret those dreams. It’s almost like one or both of you flunked pictionary. There are so many times that what is obvious for one person can be not obvious for another.

Then you have the dream dictionaries that are supposed to be of help. This can back fire if what was in the dream isn’t listed in your dream dictionary. Then you have to either tear apart the dream or try to remember what it was that you actually saw in your dream and in what order. There are many moments when your thinking to yourself what the hell was that supposed to mean. It can almost seem as though everyone else got the memo but you.

Source has a wicked sense of humor sometimes. It’s almost like all these riddles are supposed to be obvious. Although, usually after the event that we were supposed to pick up the clues on. It really is very obvious, upon reflection! The problem is that we usually get all caught up in our heads and make simple things much more complex than they are?

The written letters are the worst, they zip by so fast that you can’t usually read them! The numbers are even more frustrating? The messages in a foreign language can be another example of a fun time. The best ones of all are when your dream is so real that you have a hard time telling if you are awake or still asleep.

Happy Dream time to you all!

Changes I’ve Noticed

I’ve noticed more positive changes even from last year. Nicer people have entered my life! Working with different people that are more positive. Seeing more team work, with the people I work with. People’s confidence coming up. Seeing less jerks enter my life. All in all, I’m definitely liking this year even more than last year. Last year, I saw more progress than I did in the year before and the year before that.

Each year, I am seeing more lasting changes take hold longer and longer. People that aren’t in alignment with who I am are leaving or being moved around. I’m actually enjoying the different types of work that I do more and more. I have people around me that respect and appreciate the value I add. I’m in a really good place.  I am standing up for myself more and more and honoring those things about myself that come very naturally to me and not trying to fit into a mold that is just not me.

I’ve never been a people pleaser and I’m embracing that about myself. I’m not being judged by other people. I’m being more and more true to myself. I’m embracing my directness, instead of trying to figure out what people that beat around the bush mean. I ask them directly and ask them to be direct when they are speaking with me since that is my true communication style. It avoids a lot of misunderstandings and hurt feeling for the other person.

Sometimes it’s good to take a measure of your life to see what’s working and getting better and what is just not working.
