A Spiritual Life Gives Insight

                                            A spiritual life transforms the heart
                                            It gives strength within to change the blows
                                            of physical life into glows of inner-awakening.....
                                            Unlocking the why's and how's and giving
                                            Hope, faith and strength to see our way through
                                            The myriad of challenges that cross our path.

                                             Learning to reduce our desires and constant
                                             Yearning without the inner-learning
                                             Takes us away from our heart-center
                                             Where we cultivate gratitude
                                              For what is already in our life,
                                             And Love and Compassion for All Life....
                                              Including Our-Self.

The Endless Spiritual Journey

Hi Everyone  ~

" There will never be an end point........."  

 Many who have just embarked on this spiritual journey when the Ascension energies started flooding the planet, often refer to a 'point' that needs to be reached.  The spiritual journey is endless as spiritual light keeps expanding within our Being, and our consciousness subsequently follows that expansion.

Within our Soul which incarnated on earth is also our consciousness.   Consciousness is a Divine energy that is the totality of everything we've experienced since before incarnating on Earth and also holds the memory of our incarnations and spiritual achievements.  That is why in deep meditation we can connect with our consciousness and perhaps have flashes or memories of past incarnations, experiences, etc.

For those who have already transcended the physical plane, or earth plane, they are already living within their consciousness and view their life from a higher spiritual perspective.  Transcending the physical plane means you can now live totally as an observer from your own divine realm, within.   You feel like a visitor on earth, but, there is still a life to be lived like other citizens.  That is where the consciousness-energy comes into play------you have reached a state of living a Divine life on Earth with higher ideals and a much more altruistic view of life.  Many people who are like this have also reached the awareness of Oneness.   This is not a learned achievement through spiritual knowledge from books or lectures, this is a part of our evolving soul that has returned to its roots of knowing and living from this awareness of Oneness with the All.

So it becomes more apparent, the longer one is on the spiritual journey, that there is no end point.  It is a continuing journey which will always delight and give joy with each new awakening.  Having expectations of finally 'getting there' will always disappoint as it will never happen.  Each soul follows their own intuition and goes where their energy takes them.   To resist one's flow will cause inner-disharmony and discontent.   These are lower viibration energies which keeps you in a wanting and getting type of world.   Living with peace and being in tune with your Self will steer you in the right direction for your own individual journey.

Each soul is at a different stage of spiritual awakening due to experience through incarnating on earth.  A person who reached enlightenment in a previous incarnation will most likely find it will easily come back to memory simply because their consciousness is already expanded.   But their journey continues as the person they are this time round is here for another reason, and only they will know what that is through living another lifetime and experiencing all the ups and downs.....yet again!

We Are Enormously Complex Beings!

27 Jan. 2014
Namaste Dear Friends ~

Yes, we are enormously complex Beings. Without even going into the subject of our spirituality within, our emotions and physical challenges play a huge role in our life. Spending some time alone in contemplation and looking into how we really feel within, there can be innumerable reasons for our ill-health and discontent.
The body is still such a mystery to scientists and doctors, we get treated according to what is available at the time. Research into every disease known to man continues every day, and looking at how our research teams are progressing in Australia, they seem to be getting closer and closer to cancer cures and better treatments for other very debilitating nervous system disorders, to name a few areas.

Our genes play a huge part in directing our life to where we had never even envisioned in our wildest dreams! Even temperament and psychiatric disorders are inherited. We really do take on quite extraordinary twists and turns in our life when confronted with the arrival of any disease or emotional disorder. Some lay hidden for years only to be activated by life situations that test us to the core.

I feel it is safe to say that not all illness is created through our actions and thoughts. Some may be, but the physical body has it's own agenda, unbeknown to us. We can take hundreds of supplements a day and exercise sensibly but in the end we really cannot steer the wheel of how our bodies are going to test us, when we least expect it.

We often envy people who can sail through their entire life without any serious illness, and they can thank their genes for that. What is unfortunate is folks who have had no experience of serious chronic illness lay the blame entirely on the actions of a person. This is unfortunately displaying ignorance on their part. Many people need to take medication to sustain their physical lives, and the medications available have terrible side-effects, unfortunately, so that's another challenge in itself.

With the complexity of life on earth these days, it is extremely difficult for many to live the life they had originally chosen. This is where emotional flexibility is needed. This is where we can begin to do the inner-journey to find that strength. Our emotions can dicate our lives if we haven't dealt with them as they arise. Tucking feelings away, afraid of 'going there' as it's too painful, only results in making a bank inside of festering pain. This pain resurfaces throughout life until it is faced, felt as deep as it needs to be felt, allowing us to move on to fresh thoughts and a clear path.

Many people in the public arena we see and read about daily have turned their lives around. They have adapted to the life-situations they have been dealt. They appear to be, and are, stronger from facing such tremendous adversity. Seeing the flood victims rebuilding from last year's floods here in Australia was heartbreaking and heartwarming at the same time. Some had experienced the floods twice, some had left the town and not returned. Yesterday, watching on TV a well-known and loved Queensland chef who lost his wife and 3 daughters in an horrific Xmas fire over one year ago cooking in a popular market in Brisbane, showing his healing scars from horrific burns, shows enormous strength and fortitude. The way he speaks is an inspiration to others who have lost their whole reason for living. What an amazing recovery, both emotionaly and physically, although he's had over 20 surgeries to his face and body. He helps other burns victims with the funds that were raised for his recovery by his chef friends.

 We can either use the adversity we face in life to grow within and bring out what is in all of us in our light within which contains everything we need, or we can sit and moan our lives away. There is tremendous growth opportunities with each adverse life situation that presents itself. The deeper we dig, the more we discover a once hidden world to us that we can now explore and expand our consciousness. Connecting with that silent partner will assist us enormously in all life situations, and all we have to do is take that first step in exploring the depths of our Being.

Returning to A State of Innocence

Returning to our innocence.............that joyful part of childhood when we were still new to this physical world.   Everything was fascinating, and watching a baby grow through their developmental stages from first smile to first steps, is just a sheer delight!   Such wonder in their little faces when they discover their toes and their many uses, and also being able to sit-up in the bath and splash until all of the water has almost left the tub!    Even new baby animals not long after birth are soon romping around happily and exploring their bodies and environment.   The funniest for me is watching a baby elephant trying to use his trunk like his Mother can, but, it's not quite got that knack yet........have to wait until he's bigger and stronger.

During sharing our experiences here through different stages of awakening within, we have touched upon this innocent wonder of seeing nature through renewed eyes.  Everywhere we look, it has a different look and feel.   The colours are bolder, the starry sky looks so close you could almost reach out and pick a star, and it feels like a different more vibrant dimension than our third.   We are reconnecting with that part of our soul that hasn't been tainted by a life and society that is quite foreign from our spiritual roots.  We have had to live and make a life for ourself that always felt somehow 'different.'  

Seeing this world through transformed vision is the first step in breaking the veil between the physical world and the spiritual reality.   This physical world has been created since we arrived on this planet through humanity's thoughts and efforts to survive it's harsh conditions.   And here we are now..........a technological world where competition rules.   Any poor country that is battling to survive just the basics of life is dependent on assistance from other countries.   In the end, it all boils down to dollars.   Money now rules this present society on and the power it can wield.

Humanity has basically forgotten its created origins.   Spiritual Beings.   Returning to that recognition of who we really are is what the "Ascension Process" is all about.   Returning to our BEing.  As we progress on our individual awakening within, we reconnect with a higher frequency and therefore begin to see the world in its natural state, unpolluted.   That layer of dimension is always there.  We have glimpses of it from time to time and then our earth-life brings us back to the present 3D world.  There are literally layers upon layers of higher frequency dimensions that can be reached by us when we reconnect to our Divinity, our Soul's Essence.

There are many people before us who have transcended this earth plane and experienced "heaven on earth."  When people go into a state of samaadi, that spiritually blissful state of Oneness within their divine self, they glimpse heaven within.  Some can stay in that state for days and survive quite well without food or drink.   In a higher frequency, we need far less food and drink as the body is less dense.  Physical food is for a physical body, spiritual energy is for a spirit/light body.   In a state of samaadi the metabolic rate of the body is extremely slow, as is when a person goes into a deep meditation.  Such wonderful visions can be experienced in these spiritual states.

Returning to our innocence...........everything we need is within our soul, our higher-self.   A wonderful world indeed when earth is inhabited by millions of awakened and enlightened souls.

Keeping Christmas Spiritual

                                       *~*     A  Blessed  and  Safe  Christmas  To  All     *~*

      Remembering that this day is in fact a gift from the Divine.   If Jesus had not decided to incarnate
      on Earth and live the life he chose:  a life that would teach humans how to be humble, how to be
      kind to others, how to have strength in times that threatened our very existence, and ultimately
      what becoming the "Christ" really means, we would not be celebrating this most Holy day around
      the Globe.

      Sadly, this message is abused by the commercial aspect of life.  We see it everywhere and what
       it does is negate the true message of Christmas and turn it into a celebration of greed.

       Of course, not every person sees this time of year through the eyes of self-indulgence  -  there are
       many, many people who carry on the spirit of Christmas through helping the needy and making
       sure they are not forgotten.  Everyone needs to feel loved and their life is important, but through
       life's difficulties, many are destitute and lonely.  Thank God for the organizations in our Communities
       who recognize this need and give freely of their time to assist with hampers of necessities.

       I wish to also recognize the massive devastation in the Philippines and the millions of displaced
       refugees living in extremely tough conditions due to war.   Holding love and compassion in our
       hearts is all that most of us can do.   We would all like to be able to feed, house, and comfort the
       suffering folks and children around the globe, but it's just not possible.  The Power in the energy
       of Love should not be underestimated.   Putting aside a little time each day of silent prayer and
       offering love and compassion while visualizing these affected countries is putting positive and
       healing energy where it is most needed.

Have We Progressed?

We know we are making personal progress when we can look back at our reactions during our day and see how differently we handle the challenges we face each day.  We are not the same as we were last year, last month or even last week.  There is definite change in how we make choices, how we respond to situations, and even how we see our fellow brothers and sisters, whether known or not known to us!
" Strangers are only friends we haven't yet met  ."

We don't have to assess ourselves all day, but when sitting in quiet contemplation perhaps at the end of the day, our minds quiet and restful, we can take a look and see how we handled ourselves when out among people.  We are not trying to be perfect, just being aware and recognizing the changes that have occurred within.

Although we are in Oneness with the All on a higher level of existence, it is still an  'individual' journey, one we undertook knowingly when we incarnated. This last existence in third dimensional reality would not be an easy one by any means, so if we arestill feeling fear within, just remember that we consciously chose to be here.  Obviously our Self who decided to embark on this journey was confident that we could do this!                    
So, time to connect again to that Self who knows us better than our Earth-Self who is going through many adverse experiences, situations.

Recognizing False Impressions Upon Your Energy Field

We carry within our energy-field many impressions from others, and what feeds this is when we
take it to heart and start to believe what others' think of us.

"Layers from the past" can stick to our auras and shape our personality and also be the reason WHY
we act and react to people and certain circumstances.  When we become aware of our-self by being
mindful of our actions and reactions we will be able to see just what IS us and what has been
impressed upon us by as far back as parents, teachers, etc.

There is something very revealing about spending time on One's own.  For one thing, if you are searching for freedom from the past and all of the layers of what was impressed upon you by family, friends, colleagues, etc., spending time alone is, I think, the best therapy.

This subject of ' layers from the past ' came to my awareness very recently.  When something unexpected pops up and wants us to take notice, it usually means it needs our attention, as it may have been holding us back and keeping us in old mind-sets.  The layers I am speaking of are concepts of what others think about us that our consciousness has grabbed onto and stayed with us, influencing how we think about ourselves, what actions we take in life, and if we have set up a pattern of repetitive behaviour.

One does not need a therapist to talk these matters out once you have pin-pointed where the blockage is.  Once you have realized that you may be carrying around a repeated pattern of behaviour, the solution is to be very watchful each day. Once the awareness has been noted in your consciousness, it will become a trigger and alert you when the pattern starts to influence your daily decisions. These tendencies to repeat past mistakes, over and over again, can be very ingrained. One must have strong fortitude in dealing with and accepting that change is very necessary in order to break these cycles.

I believe this subject is very important as we begin to build our 'new homes.'  Building bricks that just don't fit into a higher dimension will always turn out to be stumbling blocks! We may find that we keep returning to the old ways of thinking and behaving every time we try to move forward.

What is holding me back?
Why do I feel like I am walking through concrete?

Once the awareness takes hold and the old behaviour rectified, you will be amazed how much clearing will be felt afterwards.  It IS that simple  -  recognition of carrying around a false impression of who you thought you were is enough to delete it from your sub-conscious.  It is like another portal within has been opened, and the consciousness goes back to expanding instead of retracting.
Like a breath of fresh air...............spontaneity and joy returns.
