Universal World: Avoiding Negativity

shied-233x300      There is something that really needs to be said about personal, spiritual, and energetic boundaries. We as humans are entering a time of massive changes and growth. With this, it’s basically ‘out with the old and in with the new’! How can we allow new opportunities, experiences, and things come into our lives when we have old junk crowding our space? Junk can mean physical, psychological, emotional, spiritual stuff that we no longer need and or continues to hinder our growth. Let’s say you are moving into a new house and it’s bigger and more spacious than your old one. You still have personal belongings that are either old, dusty, falling apart, or just plain don’t fit or belong anywhere in the house. As hard as it may be, at one point or another your gut (or intuition) might tell you its time to let these things go. 

       Anyway, getting past my jibber jabber, here’s the point: Negativity in any way, shape, or form CAN and WILL hold you back if you let it do so. That can include anything like: News, Media, Politics, Gossip, Dramatics, People, Places, Unhealthy Substances, etc. Giving time, energy, and attention to certain people, places, and things can simultaneously leave you feeling angry, depressed, drained, and even unmotivated (and might possibly lead you on a path and or develop habits that are not so healthy). YantraWings210x210_0001

Personally, due to some of the yucky things that are floating around the world and universe has pushed me to make some much needed and healthy changes. These are some of the changes I have made within the past few years and have REALLY helped me:

1. I do not watch TV at all, period.

2. I do not watch, read, or get involved with the news. I used to watch the news with my family, and it just made me so angry and depressed because of all the ‘bad news’ that was on. 

spiritual_001072913. I am no longer involved with Politics. I have gotten some nasty attacks because of the fact I have chosen not to vote, watch the news/debates, or get involved. Honestly, I really did used to be involved with the Politics. However, over time I basically watched my emotional health (and physical health) diminish as I ranted, raved, and argued about Politics over the internet, at school, with my family, etc. I could no longer take it and removed myself from it to heal and grow.

4. I steer away from negative people, situations, and places as much as physically possible. There are places like work and school where sometimes there might be a bit difficult to avoid some situations/individuals. When I am faced with uncomfortable situations, what I follow these guidelines: Stay Positive, Be Yourself, Be Assertive and Maintain Boundaries, Don’t Let Others Bring You Down, and if needed be Walk Away

5. I do my best to maintain a healthy lifestyle. I am always working on ways to be physically, mentally, emotionally, spirituality balanced, and to overall be happy. So, I do what makes me happy. 

Every lifestyle really differs in many unique, intricate, and marvelous ways. However, without things that are ‘excess’ or ‘weigh you down’, you might find that your journey in life might ‘feel’ a bit smoother than it was before. Only you can find that true balance. My hope is that regardless of who you are, I really hope that you are happy. =)

Soul/Soap — Re-Imagining the World Together

@ceejaedevine and I have been having conversations here and there about the soul. Her beliefs and experiences have brought her to understand that the soul/spirit that we carry is maybe as simple as personality/consciousness. There’s so many interesting connections when it comes to this. For me I find Soul to be the carrier of spirit […]

Dream Journal: Forest Rapid Investigation

This is just one of those dreams that leaves me ever so clueless questioning what significance this has to my life. The first part of the dream feels a bit fuzzy to me. However, what I can recall has to do with my sister and I floating towards the shore of this island/continent, one of which I had no clue how massive it truly was. After that, bits of detail were fuzzed up, then I recall finding myself going from a background of white light into a bright green forest (still patches of white here and there). There were Redwood, Oak, and Sequoia trees, ferns, grass, and a lovely branch of a fern where a lovely colored butterfly landed upon (one of which I am not entirely sure if it was blue, red, or orange). I overheard my sister yelling, “come on, we need to find my sister! She could be anywhere for all we know. It’s important to find her”. I hastily said, “Ok! Ok, we’ll find her, don’t worry.”

We muddle through the forest until we found a river on the other side of the trees. There was a thicket on the other side that was matted with sticks and branches (the thicket was lined with a white background). Parts of the river show silvery-grey tiled stone lining the side of it as well as deep jade green colored trees and hills. The stone walls and architecture that was down there felt as ancient as the hills. Out of the corner of my eye, I saw what appeared to be some type of ritual/festival. It made me question if we were in some part of Asia just by what the context of the festival was, despite the fact I could only see it from the corner of my eye. I walked on the stone pathway along the river, which lead to heavier rapids to see if I could get a closer look at anything I could find. All of a sudden a look amongst the thicket where the heavy rapids were, and I saw something caught in it. I said, “Look!” and the people from the festival started running and pointing at the thicket. A black/coal colored thing that morphed from an animal, to a person, back to an animal was pulled from the thicket from an invisible force. My sister started to scream and cried out to find out who did this. Everything else faded into color and I got a vision of myself running through the festival with others looking at me, acting as if things were ‘normal’. And the dream ends.
