As human beings, we are comprised of Spirit, Heaven (Light) and Flesh, Earth (Dark). Light does not mean positive and dark does not mean negative, they simply represent opposites, or polarities. When we balance these polarities of both light and dark, we become “conscious” bringing more awareness to how we use our minds, to our behaviors and actions in the world and how our actions affect everything in the beautiful, intricate web of the world.
However, both the Light and the Dark aspects can become imbalanced, which leads to a negative expression of that nature. This will manifest as an external imbalance, in the larger world around us. The external world is a reflection of our internal world, which is why it’s so important for each of us to do our own work to be integrated and whole. There may be periods where we become imbalanced, where we live in this opposite for a while, so that we can move toward and learn what it truly means to be balanced, by first experiencing the imbalance.
A person who is imbalanced in their Light nature – too Light, is the Victim or the Bleeding Heart. They are needy, has constant guilt, is too meek, gets exploited/abused, feels helpless or hopeless and is too vulnerable. This is someone who has not realized their own power, value or worth. To balance this, a person must learn to stand up for themselves and come to understand their value and worth in order to harness and wield their power in a healthy way. They must learn not to become too self-sacrificing at their own expense. This individual needs to develop strong boundaries, not “leak” their energy and give their power away to others. They need to find their own “voice” and to exert their influence in the larger world around them, knowing that they are enough and that their voice matters. They must learn to use their new found power to transform the Victim into the Creator.
A person who is imbalanced in their dark nature and is too Dark, is The Abuser or Predator. One who is greedy, over-indulges in addictive behavior, is controlling, violent, overly-competitive, jealous, homophobic, racist, ruthless, and lacks an inner world. This is someone who misuses their power in order to get what they want at all costs and at the expense of others. They are disconnected from their own hearts and Spirit. To balance this, the individual must learn humility, compassion, respect, kindness, caring, seek to understand the other, assume responsibility for their own actions rather than blame, connect with their own hearts and connect with Mother Earth and the web of all life. They need to seek to become a Creator that loves life rather than a Destroyer, that annihilates everything in its path.
As you can see in the news in the U.S.A., some of the Abusers / Predators are being outed. However, the American government seems to be exempt from their predatorial behavior as they run rampant over the American people, enacting laws that serve the greedy few while the masses are left out in the cold. This cycle of Predator/Victim has been in place in the world for a very long time. Cast your mind back to the Kingdoms and the serfs in the Medieval era. It is really no different from those days. Remember, it is always darkest before the dawn. What is needed now, is for each individual to balance their dark and light nature, as well as their feminine and masculine energies, to overcome fear and to step into our Creator Consciousness. To honor the Divine Self within and use our free will to create something Beautiful from a place of love.
The Creator knows his/her power as a Master who walks on the earth, a Divine Being of Light in Human form. The Creator creates from a place of love, respect and compassion for all living beings, the environment and knows its connection to the great Spirit. The Creator works within the Laws of the Universe and is not victim to what is happening in the world, rather, they are harnessing their God-given power which was bestowed upon them, with intention, to create harmony and justice using free will.
To know balance, one can whole-heartedly ask the Universe this question, “What do I need to let go of to correct this imbalance?” In other words, “Where am I resisting? And what do I need to stop resisting for balance to be restored?” Resistance is fear, so whatever you fear you are resisting, which continues to draw that which you fear, toward you. For example, a person who is a victim is afraid of their own power, which they seek from others. The victim can let go of seeking power from outside of themselves. Once they cease to seek power from external sources, and look within themselves for the resources they seek, they will come to know the power that is within them, their own inner God-Self and the balance will be corrected.
God created the Universe and there are certain Spiritual Laws for us to abide by in order to live in harmony. When we understand, obey and respect these spiritual laws, we will know peace. That takes 7 billion souls doing this simultaneously. With this perspective, it becomes clear why we need to wake up, do the work and help each other. This subject is worthy of a book, which I’m planning on writing…
Once we become balanced and whole, and walk on the Earth as a Creator (not The Creator), it doesn’t matter what is happening around us, we can hold our center and make choices that support this balance. This is the goal… Balance and wholeness, love and harmony, creation and health. Balance equals harmony. Harmony equals Peace. And Peace is freedom. We all want to be free, liberated from that which binds us.
The truth is like a song. When you hear it, it has a certain vibration that resonates as being true. When we live our lives in accordance with our Highest Truth, then we are living in integrity. Integrity is defined as; the quality of being honest and having strong moral principles; moral uprightness. The state of being whole and undivided.
Barbara De Angelis writes, “Living with integrity means: Not settling for less than what you know you deserve in your relationships. Asking for what you want and need from others. Speaking your truth, even though it might create conflict or tension. Behaving in ways that are in harmony with your personal values. Making choices based on what you believe, and not what others believe.”
For many people, it is challenging to speak their truth because they are concerned about hurting other people or the consequences they may face if they do speak their truth.
Truth is the foundation from which we build our relationships. If we are not sharing our truth with the other, whether it is your brother, sister, husband, wife, mother, father or child, then you are not allowing true intimacy to manifest. When we speak our truth, we can create a real, intimate relationship with each other because we have a strong foundation.
If one has a feeling or emotion that is one’s truth and they know that by sharing those feelings and emotions that the person who is on the receiving end of their words may get hurt, there is often an unwillingness to share that truth. In this case, those thoughts, feelings or emotions may be downplayed, omitted or distorted into a lie, all to avoid the potentially negative reaction the other person may have to hearing the truth. Especially if you have told that person your truth before and things did not go well. Then there is a fear that is present that further prevents one from being completely honest. Sound familiar?
When we don’t tell our truth to avoid someone else’s negative reaction, both people pay the price. To be true to oneself is imperative to creating a happy, healthy life and relationships. If we are not speaking our truth, the other person will detect what you are saying on some level as false, because it carries a certain vibration. This creates shallow, insincere and fake relationships. Cracks form in the foundation and the falsity simmers and festers below the surface, threatening to explode like a volcano, or shake like an earthquake. Even if one’s intention is good, thinking, “I don’t want to say that to them because it will hurt them”, it is still robbing both people from having an honest relationship that results in both parties living their truth.
Often times if we swallow our truth, our bodies will express it in some way. A person may manifest a goiter in their throat, get migraines, low back pain or have digestive issues, because they can’t stomach their lives. The body doesn’t lie.
Once the truth is revealed, the other person has a firm platform from which to make their choice to how they respond. You cannot dispute another person’s truth. Truth is reality, It is their truth and that is that. But if a distortion of the truth is presented, then the other person does not have a fair playing field from which to base their choice on how they react or respond and further distortions are created in the relationship creating more imbalance and disharmony.
Once the truth is told, there is the next step of compromise in order to satisfy the needs and desires of everyone involved. But if one person continually suppresses their own needs and desires and gives in to the other’s needs, then an imbalance occurs and an unhealthy pattern is formed within that relationship. When one person gives more than the other, resentment builds and unhappiness creeps in. If people can communicate honestly and compromise fairly where both people’s needs are being met, then health is restored.
Speaking and living your truth requires you to be honest with yourself, look at your life and what you are creating without denial and illusion. It requires you to own your stuff and become an authentic person. This requires a person to work on one’s unconscious beliefs that create the self-sabotaging patterns in their lives. This is often the work of a lifetime, but it doesn’t have to be. It is always a choice involving personal accountability.
It’s important to take into account that people may not be telling their truth because they themselves don’t know their truth. They may not know themselves well enough yet or are incapable of being honest with themselves because the truth is too painful or it doesn’t fit their version of who they want to be. This is the real work and we must be compassionate with one another. It is more difficult to be understanding of a person who is consciously lying, manipulating and deceiving than it is to one who is dishonest because they aren’t aware of their truth.
Speaking one’s truth is best received when it is delivered from the heart rather than from an angry place. If you don’t speak your truth for a long time, and resentment and anger has been allowed to build, then quite often when the truth does come out it erupts with angry words that are spiteful and hurtful. So it is on us to understand what our truth is and speak it as soon as we know it so that we don’t get to that angry place. This is a delicate communication process that needs to be handled with care! And the more you practice it the more beautifully you can express it and share it with others. Once your practice is in place, it becomes a habit, which then becomes a way of life.
People appreciate hearing the truth. They may not like it, but they appreciate it much more than a lie.
Once you know your self and can be honest with yourself and all others, you are on the path to true liberation. The Truth does set you free.
You may not realize that you are in the middle of a high vibrational energy influx of Light that is helping everyone on this planet shift into higher consciousness. The Lion’s Gate Portal opened on July 26 and closes on August 14th. This happens every year and is an opportunity for each and every one of us to awaken more fully into being our true selves, Divine Beings of Light!
Happy Spring! 2017 is a number 1 year in numerology, which means it’s a year of new beginnings. The world is going through a chaotic period with Trump in the White House, the economies are unstable, the wars rage on and it seems as if we are going backwards, all forward progress toward peace and harmony appears to be reversing as our government focuses on money, power and greed. How many times do you find yourself listening to the news in disbelief as the wolves who no longer bother to put on the sheep’s clothing make decisions that impact us in a harmful way? Remember, Trump is playing an important role at this time. When leaders move in the wrong direction, it ignites all sorts of opposition from those who are aligned with the truth. People are now rising up in large numbers to protest against that which is clearly wrong for humanity and this is how our movement for the new earth is being formed.
The consciousness on this earth continues to rise contrary to what we are seeing in the media. The blatant greed and adversity toward the planet and humanity are contrary to the natural flow of creative energy that is emitted from Source, the oneness of all that is. While there is much that is beyond our control, what we can control is ourselves and how we walk in this world. Be the light that shines the truth and leads the way forward on the good path, whether it’s in the arena of politics, your child’s school system, the community you live in, in your home or your place of work.
We are at the stage of the game where we must not let fear overtake our lives. When we make decisions based from that fear point, we are misaligned with the true creative flow and we end up attracting to us and creating that which we do not want. We are all swimming in the collective consciousness of this fear energy present on the earth at this time. We must not claim that fear as our own. You may feel it passing through you, but do not mistake it for your own fear. Affirm to yourself that you are powerful and aligned with the Creative Love Force Energy of Source. Allow your body to release tension and bring yourself back into a place of total relaxation even if it just means lying down and breathing and letting go of your thoughts until you feel calm. Ask for your Higher Self and Celestial Team to clear all lower vibrational fear energy in, through and around you from your energy field daily. Love is the highest frequency and feels good to us.
When we come out of alignment with the path of love and move into the path of fear, we may find it difficult to meditate and synchronicities may seem to be far and few between and life in general becomes more challenging. Often to learn about this, we may have a direct experience in our life that will teach us this lesson of what happens when we are aligned with the fear energy. We may attract the wrong relationships, have difficulty with money and experience many disappointments. It may feel as though our manifestation abilities are no longer working and that we have lost our magic touch. Rather than walking through open doors with ease, it may feel as if we are running into brick walls, over and over. These are some examples of how the fear alignment can show up in our lives. If this is what you are experiencing then it is time to make a change!
Firstly, remember that you are a Divine Being of Light and that Love Source energy is constantly being showered upon you and you can open to it at any time and let it fill your being. Remember that you are not your mind and that when the mind begins to think negative thoughts, you do not have to listen to them and the momentum of negativity will cease.
If we do not get ourselves out of the fear alignment, the Universe will intervene at some point to change your world for you whether it be through a loss of a relationship, a change in your work, a move or something rather intense and dramatic that will help you get back onto the path of love. Trust that all the upheaval is happening for your highest good (even though it may not feel like it at the time).
As we consistently attune to the Love energy, it becomes a habit and new pathways are created to attract more of that love vibration to us resulting in greater flow and ease in our lives. The morning is the best time to sit quietly and attune to the Love vibration by connecting with the Divine as this creates our intentions and energy alignment for the day ahead. We all have busy lives, but simply sit for 20-30 minutes each morning and bring your awareness to the Divine, focus on your breath, clear your mind of all your chores for the day and you will be creating a much more peaceful and centered life.
A great exercise to do to release fear and attune to the Divine is working with our base chakra and our crown chakra. The root or base chakra (Muladhara) connects us to the earth plane, it is the first chakra and the color is red, it is located at the perineum, the spot between the anus and the genitals. We can hold a lot of fear here. Take your awareness to this center and tune into the physical and subtle energy and see if you can relax this place completely. Once you relax this area, you will find that your body wants to take a deep breath. Feel warm, red energy rising up from the earth and filling this center. Affirm to yourself, “I am safe, I am secure, and all my needs are provided for.” This is a good exercise to release fear.
The crown chakra or 7th chakra (Sahasrara) connects us to the heavenly plane. The color is violet or pure white and when the crown chakra is closed off, we feel disconnected from God and our true selves. Imagine a pure violet light coming down from above and filling your crown chakra with divine energy, pooling until you feel an opening that lifts the lid and connects you with all that is. Affirm “I am a beautiful being of light and the Universe loves me and conspires in my favor at all times.” You can also run white energy between the two chakras using the inhalation of your breath to bring the upward energy from the earth through your base chakra to the top of your head, and the exhalation of the downward energy from the top of the head back down to the root.
We cannot stand in fear and let that be the place where we move from, it is against our natural way of being. Fear contracts, fear divides and separates, fear is scary, fear is harmful. Love is the answer, Love expands, love unites, love is free and joyful, love feels good, love is truth. Infuse yourself and those around you with love, it is the Divine Force and Light and is is what we know to be Right and True.
In Love, Truth & Light,
During our life and our evolution, we constantly experience cycles of death and re-birth. There are small cycles within larger ones; and these cycles intertwine together creating concentric circles, expanding upwards into spirals which represent the patterns of our evolution. As we grow in consciousness, we shed the old ways of seeing the world and our relationship with ourselves, with others, with nature and with God changes, so that we may align ourselves more fully with God. In order to do this, we need to let go of the beliefs that were spoon-fed to us by society and our families so that we may see the world and ourselves through the eyes of Truth. Our Higher Selves are our True Selves and the wisdom we receive from our Higher Self and our Higher Mind or (Super Conscious) guides us to live our best life upon this earth in this lifetime.
The Universe offers us portals, or openings in the energetic field of the Earth that can assist us with these rebirth cycles. Eclipses are potent astrological events that create doorways for evolution to occur. Eclipses come in pairs and during the window of time between the first (solar) eclipse and the second (lunar) eclipse, which is about 2 – 3 weeks apart, there is opportunity for great change. It is to your benefit to work with the energies that present themselves and seize the opportunity for change on the inner plane, using one’s insights and working with one’s Higher Self team to release the blocks that are caused by old wounds that are occur in our pre-natal, childhood, early years, and past lives. A person carries these blocks, or stuck energies, somewhere in the body and energy field as an imprint, a recurring pattern that the unconscious self, (the Shadow), creates to sabotage positive growth, causing the relationships or events that we do not want to show up over and over again. When we heal the Shadow, we release these stuck energies, these misaligned beliefs and we are able to move forward in our life, attracting different people and events that produce positive experiences and feelings rather than staying stuck in frustrating and painful situations and relationships that we don’t understand. Thus, the old pattern is released and we become more aligned with our True Self, clearing blocks to make more room for our Higher Self to reside within our being.
Just recently, on the Pisces Full Solar Eclipse on March 8th, I experienced a great re-birth. One of my oldest wounds, rooted deep in my being, was healed. I had been praying for months for this wound to be healed and my prayers were heard and answered because I was focusing on and calling in the healing. I really wanted this particular issue to transform!
The wound happened when I was a little girl and stemmed from not feeling fully loved, appreciated, valued, respected, honored, seen or heard by my Father. My Father’s own experience as a child was not a happy one; he never spoke well of his parents who mistreated him, in fact he barely spoke of them at all. When he became a Father, he did not know how to raise a daughter with love and affection and to honor her just as she was. He had repressed his emotions because he didn’t trust them since they were always changing, and he chose to stick with the logical thoughts in his head that guided his way in life by reason alone. I felt that he raised his children with the underlying energy of fear permeating the family home and I often cried because even though I was only a little girl, I was attuned to that fear and it didn’t feel good. I was rewarded for intelligence and logic, for achieving within the system and my emotions were completely ignored or dismissed. My learning process was not honored and I was admonished for not “figuring it out”. I did not feel respected or understood, I often felt less than and my self-worth was negatively impacted. I carried that wound into my adult life and did not realize that I had a lot of anger toward my father which lay buried beneath the love and admiration I felt for him. The anger had become part of my unconscious, my Shadow self was formed. Without understanding this wound, I transferred this anger onto my male partners, authority figures and men in general. There was so much anger and I found myself fighting with men, my Shadow self would express itself if I felt ignored, rejected, unappreciated or diminished in any way. I had taken on the role of the victim, feeling oppressed and hurt by the “overbearing” and “controlling” men in my life. I could not see the part I played in the relationship, I could only see that I was being mistreated and therefore, it was the other person doing this to me, it was their fault. This victim energy or block sat right in my solar plexus and would churn, tighten and get hot when that wound was activated by a trigger.
After many years I recently met the right man for me and we married. Yay! I found that the Shadow was showing up again, in spite of the deep love I have for my partner. Whenever the Shadow/wound was triggered, I would act out in the familiar ways lashing out and speaking hurtful words to “protect” myself. This was just the same pattern repeating and I had to look inward to see what it was that I was doing to create the discord rather than blaming my partner. Having spent many years actively working on my self-development, I had the insight as to what needed to be healed. I spoke with my Higher Self team and I placed a prayer upon my altar to emphasize my desire to heal this old pattern. I kept my focus on this desire for healing and sought the truth.
The week before the solar eclipse was especially difficult. I could feel distortion in my energy field, I could feel my “stuff” coming up, causing me to over-react and lose control of my emotions at the tiniest things. It was very uncomfortable! A couple of days after the eclipse, at 4 a.m. in the morning, I was lying in bed in deep discomfort and could feel the tightness and heat in my solar plexus. My new dog, who was yet to be named and had arrived on Shivaratri, the holy day to celebrate Lord Shiva, was whimpering in his crate asking to come out. I let him out and he jumped into the bed with me, curling up at my solar plexus. I was actively communicating with my Higher Self Team and in great distress, I asked for healing and all I heard were the words “Let Go” whispered into my ear.
It was at that moment that I had an epiphany and could see all at once the Truth of the wound, the way I behaved with all the men in my life, my part in the relationships and I had the understanding that I didn’t have to hold onto the anger and resentment anymore, I really could just let it go. I did’t have to analyze it anymore or figure it out, I could just Let it Go! I felt a shift of energy and huge clearing happening in my solar plexus, tears flowed freely and my heart opened, I felt the wound dispersing as I let go. I had the understanding that my father had loved me to the best of his ability, but that he had acted from his own pain and limitations and it was not intentional. He had never overcome his wounds in his lifetime, he never allowed the Light of truth to enter into the dark recesses of his pain. After the energy within me transformed, where there was once tightness and heat, now there was a wide open space and a feeling of peace! I felt immense relief and joy. I was then prompted by my Higher Self team to forgive myself to complete the process, which I did by placing my hands on my heart and saying over and over, “I forgive you, Beth, it’s ok, everything is ok.” The next morning, I named my dog Shiva, the destroyer of wounds within that were obscuring the Light.
The wounds are important, they are like the grain of sand that acts as the irritant in the oyster to create a pearl. We need material to work with for our growth, it is all Divine.
I describe this process in detail to you in hopes that you may also have a good understanding of how to heal your wounds with your Higher Self team through prayer and focused intention. The Beings of Light that surround us and love us are here to help us with whatever it is we need help with in order to move into a state of greater peace and love and into our Higher Consciousness. I am finding in the days following this healing that the words that once triggered anger no longer hit their mark because the original button or wound has been made whole again. When we shine the light of truth on the Shadow Self and love those wounded parts of ourself and release the stored energy, we integrate all aspects of who we are and we can love ourselves better.
The Shadow work is much needed at this time on the Earth, and we are being supported in this work by the Light that is being sent to our planet. Once the shadow is healed and the unconscious (darkness) is made conscious (light), we will act in ways that are aligned with our best Self, our Highest Self. If everyone takes responsibility for themselves and does the work by facing the pain and being open to seeing the truth about oneself, much healing can take place and we can move toward wholeness as individuals and collectively.
Remember the Truth, You are Loved beyond Measure, You carry the same light of the Sun, the Moon and the Stars. You are a Beautiful Being of Light coming to Earth to have a human experience where you will learn how to walk your self back to Love, hand in hand with God. Everything is in Divine and perfect order. It’s ok, Let Go, Let Go, Let Go…
