WHAT IF …

“To love the creations of the Earth is to worship the Being who created them.” -Seth Adam Smith

I sit here imagining a world that is safe and filled with kindness. I dream of the time where we as a society are living as one in love and joy. Can it be possible that we are on this planet we call Earth, as well as, Mother or Gaia as a place to learn kindness, love, and joy towards one another?
What if, that is the only reason we are born?

If you believe in reincarnation then is it possible that we die to a form of self to be reborn just to try again. Many of us may have lessons to learn, karma to release or just because we want to become a better person. Are we so stubborn that we do not want to change? Can the answer be that it is time to go within and not look outside ourselves?
What if, we are a society that has gotten it all wrong?

“Listen closely. Even the trees exhale sweet love songs that roll off their boughs and echo out to all of creation. Love is always in the air.” – Cristen Rodgers

Could we have chosen to ignore the intuition that we are all born with, merely to go with the teachings of this society and in doing so have stumbled unto the wrong path? Is the fear and anger that we succumb to part of the plan created as a generational belief lifetime after lifetime?
What if, the fear and anger that we attach ourselves to, is the wrong path?

Are all the hate, terrorist attacks, and killings a wake-up call for every one of us. The weather alone is a sign from our Mother to pay attention to how we are treating one another. Could at this very moment in time be the exact reason we are born finally to learn to live our truth. To go within in prayer, and silence through meditation for the joy that is missing in our lives. To connect to our heart and know our truth.
What if, the place to start is in Mother Nature?

“Put your ears to the ground, to the sky, to the sun and the moon… tune in to Mother Earth’s sweet song. She has messages to say, knowledge to relay, inspiration to convey… there is much for you to learn. Your journey has just begun.” – Melody Lee

To pay attention to the beauty and bounty that is offered to us daily. To smell our Mother’s fragrance, feel her breath on our cheeks, hear the trees and birds as we sit with her. To be part of her flow at the beach or in a park under the stars at night. Mother Nature has been here way longer than any of us. We abuse her, destroy her, kill parts of her and spit on her face. Why?
What if, now is the time to be ready to live in a world where we feel safe?

I believe the answers lie within each one of us to connect to that inner part we need to be in the arms of Mother Nature daily. We need to walk, sit, lay down and listen to her cries for help. Now we must respect our Mother, and she will respect us back. We have broken away from her and ourselves by filling with fear, guilt, shame, and anger towards each other. We are killing one another! Why?
What if, love towards Mother Nature is the answer to all that is happening in our lives daily?

“Every life matters. Be like Mother Nature and love everyone without judging.” – Debasish Mridha

What if, loving her, we will begin to love one another!
What if, we are capable of such a change and belief in our lifetime to make a difference. If we just try!
What if, today is the day to begin a look within by the act of going outside and spending some time with the only Mother that matters!

What Do You Believe? IS HUMANITY’S SADNESS ANCIENT?

“Love life and life will love you back. Love people and they will love you back…” – Arthur Rubinstein

What does this mean?
Do we all carry buried grief from lifetimes lived?
Is the sadness within that fills our heart and daily thoughts from ancient times?
How do we survive in today’s world with sadness that is of grief from another lifetime?
Is this what the word ancient means to you? To me?
How old is your sadness?
How old is my sadness?
How old is the grief we carry in our hearts?
Is this sadness born of our emotions?

Hunter James 233

Our arms are one with our hearts, and it is this place that is our fourth chakra within our bodies. As well as our circulatory system, lungs, ribs, breasts, and shoulders. Sadness and grief stem from our heart as the demon of the fourth chakra is grief. Lifetime after lifetime it is our chakras that are the blueprint to our souls.

Babies cry at a very early age – why? Is the sadness they carry from their past lifetimes unable to be released today? Are we born over and over again to finally be beings of love? To release the fears and anguish we hold towards others today? Do you believe in reincarnation?

“You must not lose faith in humanity. Humanity is an ocean; if a few drops of the ocean are dirty, the ocean does not become dirty…” – Mohandas K. Gandhi

Questions? There are always questions to be answered!

As we struggle through difficult times can it be that the soul has a memory of the grief we lived through in all our lifetimes? Is it even possible that the emotions that we feel today as sadness is from another lifetime and triggered today in this life experience? When we have an illness of any kind in these areas of our heart, we must go within and reflect on why? Is any of the sadness we carry today our truth? Is it in any way necessary?

Breast cancer, lung cancer, are all part of the fourth chakra, our heart. Hand pain, carpal tunnel syndrome all part of this chakra. Do you believe that you are not loved? Are you grieving? Are you sad? Ask yourself why? Journal on how you think, speak and feel daily. If after three days you wake up miserable, and very unhappy, you need to make a change in your life.

“All human beings are interconnected, one with all other elements in creation…” – Henry Reed

Grief is our sadness because of the pain we felt at any given moment in time.

Why do we choose to carry sadness forward in all lifetimes!
How does one release the grief?
How does one release the sadness?
How does one release the pain?

Let’s think about this ancient grief that stirs within us at any given moment. This grief is sadness that eats at our core which most likely is not even ours. Grief creates pain within our hearts that we cling to. Why? What has been done cannot be undone!

Can it be that our ancestors have gifted us with what we call today fear, pain, and sadness? Where does it come from that we still are affected by it today? Will we do the same to our children and grandchildren? Why do we not release it now? How do we release it?

Is it time for us as parents to look at life differently when it comes to our children? Can we wonder of their sadness and why they cry and act as they do? What is bothering them that we are unaware of? What are their fears? What is their pain?

Sadness for me is the memory of unjust, prejudiced, judgmental, mean, unkind and an unloving humanity towards each other. Is it possible for us as a society of humans to release the hate, anger, and fighting amongst ourselves? And if we do, say one day wake up to being the beings of love we are, will that erase the sadness and grief that we carry? That I also carry! That my children and grandchildren carry? As we are one, how can I heal to help you heal?

“An individual has not started living until he can rise above the narrow confines of his individualistic concerns to the broader concerns of all humanity…” – Martin Luther King Jr.

Have I after lifetimes of suffering as a human by hate or love attached myself to this pain and sorrow forever? If I heal myself will that heal you also? Since we are all one all it would take is for us to offer kindness and forgiveness towards those we share our lives with daily. Maybe even towards strangers would help heal us all.

In today’s world, there are many acts of violence and deaths of loved ones that stir the mind and heart to deep sadness and pain. We have no answers to the many acts of violence, terrorism, and killings that happen in the moment. Even our weather is stirring up fear, sadness, and pain. We have become troubled by the thought that fills our minds of, what is going to happen next?

AFFIRM: I am choosing now, this day to release the sadness within and eliminate the grief that connects me to free myself and to free all of the humans that suffer from the nastiness of life. The nastiness of life is the unjust, unkind, hateful, mean words and actions any of us project onto another. May I forgive those who harm me, as well as, those I have harmed. May we all celebrate the lives lived that have been taken too soon. May I know in my heart that there is a reason for everything that happens in this world. Today, I release that which no longer serves me.

“Life is a process. We are a process. The universe is a process.” – Anne Wilson Schaef

Let us choose not to be sad but to embrace that we are born as beings of love, and it is now the time to open our hearts to one another. We must stop the negativity, unkind words, ugly remarks, criticism, and anger towards each other. It is now the time and age in life where it must be a choice within our hearts that life is a place of living, learning and loving one another. To move forward away from sadness, fear and pain we must embrace love and offer love towards all. Awareness and forgiveness are essential to moving forward and not getting stuck in our past or centered on our future.

As we come together in times of attack and hateful situations that harm those we love, may we open our hearts always in all situations! Why must we wait for an act of violence to join as loving humans helping one another? We are beings of love first. Choose today to offer prayers and forgiveness, as you open your heart with love for all of life.

IMG_1329

Why not choose to think before we speak, react with love in all situations, stop trying to control one another and let others live their life as they want as long as they are not choosing to hurt themselves or anyone else. Now is the moment to stop being critical and judgmental of one another no matter what the circumstance.

The sadness I carry within, and you carry as well, is the essence of all that we are witness to in life that is not of love. Let us choose love!

LA BELIEVES …

Wounds of the Inner Child …

 

The journey of discovery is becoming a Being of Love at some point in life. We become whole with passion and purpose. No fear, no addictions, no pain, no anger … Just love, contentment, health and joy! We are born as Love but life detours us with the lessons we come to learn and grow from. One can never go wrong if they always choose the path of loving oneself first, forgiving the fearful, sharing by being of service, and saying ‘yes’ to another with a heart filled with love. I find that addictions of any kind is key to most fear and pain as a means of self healing but truly all that is accomplished is a temporary escape from the reality of life. One cannot be of right mind if they are not clear of mind. Addictions of any kind fog the mind, affect the body and create depression and distress.

Many of us believe we are victims by another’s projection unto us of their fears. When another is verbally abusive, angry, or hateful towards someone they claim to love they are deeply wounded. We have become a society that accepts pain and fear as the norm. I believe that an abuser’s inner child is screaming to be loved. We all have patterns we have created to help us get through the abuse when we were young. Even if the abuser was not aware of the fear and pain their actions created in the home because it was how they were raised. The child develops a defense, a way of surviving and learns the path of being one who abuses another as well. Unfortunately, we all learn everything that goes on in a relationship from our parents. Whether it is a loving supportive household or an angry, abusive one we find a way as a young child to cope with it all. 

But what about the abused? How do they survive the mental exhaustion, the tearing open of their heart and the draining of their tears? They seem to accept they did something wrong, they are not loved, they are bad. Simply that they are to blame period. The confusion fills their mind until they either accept this is their destiny or they walk away just to survive.

Sadly, where there is love there is a way. Alternative belief is there for all to discover their strength. Look within by the act of prayer, meditation or taking a pen to paper and release the demons through the written word. If you have any kind of addiction get detoxed, get to a meeting, get to a group. Communication is key in all relationships with honesty and the desire to truly hear another. The man or woman that was raised in an abusive home must realize that they do not have to be like their parent. If they felt abused as a child then let it go through finding that which works for them. There are many avenues to take to become a better person than how you were raised to be. Acceptance and acknowledgement of being abused is first.

I believe we have an inner spark that ignites when it is triggered by a similar moment from our past. Abuse of any kind becomes a pattern deep within and gets handed down from generation to generation. Here are two words to help you heal … STOP IT!

When we share our life with someone we love deeply and children enter the relationship why would we want to create a fearful, unhappy, suffering life for them to witness is a question that needs to be answered by the abuser as well as the abused. The truth is that many of our relationships have been chosen prior to our birth and we are here to be teachers for one another. If there is an inner ache of any kind that fills you and leads you to any kind of addiction know that you are first and foremost abusing yourself. STOP IT!
