Going Back To The Womb

Fall to Winter is the best time to start getting quiet an a time to start creating. I love this time of year! Snow, not so much, but it gives me the perfect excuse to stay in and drink hot chocolate. It’s the perfect time to write and paint.

This year was the first time that I actually got to know that my one aunt who is the baby is not a screw up. She is artistic. She got it from my grandmother. Instead of using it, she working at a loser job. I know it’s because her confidence isn’t where it should be. What a waste! She actually has a signature style. I can see it! She should be producing pieces of art and not wasting her time at a dead end job where she’s not appreciated!

Our society and some others don’t value artists as much as they should. Not everyone can create a piece that touches you so much that it makes you cry or is very up lifting. Same with writing. I’ve gotten away from some of my stories. I have at least nine pieces that are in various stages of development. I will be submitting some of them either this year or next. If they get excepted! Bonus, if not I’ll complete them for my own enjoyment. I do want to see them through to completion. This is my favorite time for just zoning out and letting the writing flow or the painting go where it will!

I love my characters in my writing, there anything but boring. They’re sassy and kick ass! They are very uncensored! A little like their creator. PC is so boring. The one thing that I know is that even in my dream time my house is very much on that plain of existence with me. It’s very much an extension of myself. I see new levels of myself with that house. Floors that have yet to be explored and rooms that have not been decorated or furnished.

If anything this time is great for exploring who you are or who you want to be? Maybe it’s changing the seasonal decorations? I finally had the entry hall painted for the first time this year. I’ve been in this house 15 yrs and I’m still taking steps to claim it as my own. I just called a friend to get feed back on why the entry way looks off. She helped me pin it down. I’m starting to transform the colors of this house from blah to bold and vibrant and passionate. It’s starting to echo the art in the house.

I’ve started to wander off topic, If your a passionate person, then embrace that about yourself and start to feed your creativity and explore where it leads you. Stop being a people pleaser! Be selfish, very, very selfish with what you want to create! If your want to re-invent yourself and take your career or personal life in another direction. Here is your opportunity, think of it as a life under construction. This is not a race, you get to take time to think about what you like and don’t and start to steer it in the direction that you like.

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.

Personal Victories

All of us have goals or things that we want to do some day? It’s those moments, that you finally achieve them and are really happy or you come to the realization that what was all the Hoop La about? It might be because we realize we were really chasing someone else’s dream for acceptance.  When you really own your victories, it lets you know that other thing are within reach as well.

In some cases that bucket list is starting to get whittled away at. It’s like looking at a Rolodex of our life and gauging where we’re at and how far we’ve come and how far we’ve yet to go. Sometimes its a feeling that we are finally ready for one of those things on our list that never quite felt right before now. The Universe, can also be a pain in the ass too. Where nothing seems to line up to allow you to take the next step to complete the final piece of the task.

The nice part about these victories is that they’re yours. No one can ever take them away from you! It’s not about people pleasing. It’s about testing and pleasing yourself for your personal growth as a person. Sometimes we like what we’ve become and other times not so much. We are almost like our own person clay. We can always recreate ourselves and change what we don’t like. Whether it be ourselves, home, lives, career or friends.

We are either a completed piece of art or a work in progress depending on how we choose to look at ourselves!

Happiness

Happiness has been touted as something outside of one’s self . It tries to get us to believe that we are these helpless victims and that if we’re lucky we will find happiness. What a bunch of crap!

I recently had a client, who really believed that he needed this one person to complete him and find happiness. If this client had been a woman, people would describe this as the prince charming trap. A lot of religions promote this mentality as well. This is why so many people are unhappy.

Part of learning about happiness is about learning about yourself! Who you are? Who you are not? Who do you want to be? Learning that being selfish can in fact be a very good thing, it helps you set up boundaries! It helps you to say no to things that you don’t want to do. It help you to grow and discover new things. It helps you to take back your personal power!

I always get a kick out of people who freak out over Tarot decks. The two cards they usually go nuts over are the Devil  and the Death card. The Devil is the best one to get, it usually reminds you that you need to stop giving away your personal power and stop playing the starring role as the victim! It’s about set boundaries, be it with family, friends or co-workers. It actually gets you to finally participate in your own life. It helps you to move out of being stuck and unhappy. It allows you to let go of friends that aren’t where you’re at right now. This is in no way a rejection or a judgement on them. If your paths are meant to cross in the future they will.

Now to the Death card, people always assume this card means that someone is going to die! Well yes and no! It is the ending of how they’re life has been up to this point. It is the new beginning for how they want to move they’re life forward.  Examples: Single person is getting married. It is the death of they’re single life and the beginning of they’re married life. The Death card is a blessing since it means that there is a new beginning coming.

Happiness is within all of us, it was never outside of us. I’m not going to say this is a mind-set. It is actually about self discovery and uncovering or pulling back the layers on yourself and finding those great things about yourself that you love and like. This is not about someone’s opinion of your or they’re judgement of you. They don’t get to have a say in this! Why? Because this is not they’re life! If your constantly surrounded by people who tear you apart or toxic people. You might need to start cleaning house. Caller Id is our best friend and so is voice mail, start screening those calls. These are the best ways to get rid of toxic people if your lousy at boundaries.

You will start to notice the more these people aren’t in your life, the better you start to feel. You will finally find out what it feels like to be calm. Most people find out that they’re less depressed. Once you find that calmness and inner peace you will never let someone take that from you again. Surprise that is what happiness is! Being at peace with yourself whether you have someone in your life or not. It about not having Drama in your face 24 x 7.

Unfortunately, they didn’t do a movie about this! Why? It wouldn’t sell! So start taking life one day at a time and start seeing how you start to feel. Oh and be sure to hit the off button on the cell phone it allows for sometime to yourself that you’re not being tracked down by the electronic age.

This Dark Energy

Lately this dark energy that has been passing through in January has been a form of anxiety energy.  It comes on rapidly and leaves suddenly. This energy loves to feed off of the fear and anxiety that it is trying to create in each of us. If you can step back and see if these feelings even belong to you. You will suddenly realize that it doesn’t. This is one way to break the cycle and not allow this energy to feed off of you.

In December, it was Suicide energy. It is like it is fighting to survive. In reality, it is fighting to survive to continue to feed off of the fear and sadness of others. It is interesting that as we are getting into 2013 it is starting to get weaker.

I can only hope that by the time we are in the middle of February that most of this energy will have dissipated even more and grown weaker. It gives me even more hope that the light is winning this war. It has been targeting the light workers and the children most of all.

One of the things that is most important at this time is to take Epsom salt baths for protection and to use space clearing sprays for your home. Such as Florida water to cleanse your home.

It is definitely a time for the changing of the guards.

Cupid & Psyche

I always love the romantic story of these two lovers. It is not an easy path but it is beautiful all the same.

I always believe that whether your alone or with someone on Valentine’s day; you should always be treated well.

How we treat ourselves does teach others how to treat us. If  you’re not in a relationship, that’s okay. That is the perfect time to decide what you want to do for yourself on Valentine’s Day. Some people are foodies. They have one thing they must have as a meal on that day. Others love art, so maybe they love to go to art museums or buy themselves a piece of art, whether it’s a key chain or a functional piece of art. There all different ways to spend Valentine’s day so don’t limit yourself.

If you are in a relationship, this is usually the time that  will either make or break the relationship. What I mean by that, if you love the person it won’t matter how you spend you evening. If you haven’t been treated well in this relationship that will become even more obvious. Either way, you will learn something about the other person. Either you are a good fit or you are not. It isn’t worth being in a relationship were neither of you are being the real you.

A real person will accept our flaws and not keep pointing them out to us. Love is about loving the person and not about picking a person apart.

Remember it is your life and don’t settle for a person to please other people. This is your life.

May all of you have a very blessed Valentine’s day!

Light and Dark

There is a duel going on. It is now Light’s turn to take the torch to see what it can do?

Darkness has had it’s turn for far to long. It is going down swinging as it releases hopelessness, depression and suicide energy into the World. Trying to  reclaim its power by taking as many victims as it can. Gaia, will reclaim her rightful place in the cosmos as she starts to ascend with her sister planets.

Many light workers have given their lives to ensure that Gaia makes it this time. The stakes are high, this fight has taken many centuries to get this far.

The stories of the past are about to come to life once more. Those that are ready will join Gaia as she ascends. Those that aren’t will ascend in their own time. The truth is about to come spilling out.

As banks, corporations and crooked governments start to fall the truth will be revealed. True freedom is coming forward each day.

This time it will be fought in a court room and not a battle field. The revolution is starting and there is no going back.

All the wrongs that have been done throughout history are coming forth to be revealed.

Justice is demanding this and it will not be denied! Athena is calling in her marker and she demands payment.

So sit back and enjoy the show, your about to get an education about your own origins and the history of your governments.
