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?

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.

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 …

Reincarnation/Karma

It is a new week and I am thinking of something interesting to write about. In the world of alternative belief that I live in, I have learned to treasure the moments shared with others and all that I experience in life. There is a word I feel that many of us refuse to incorporate daily into our lives. It is ‘awareness!’

At times though, I wonder who am I? How did I get to be this person that believes so differently from others? Who was I in another life, for that matter just the life right before this one? What do I love most to do? What is my passion? Why am I here?

I learned very early on to love the written word in book form and in journaling my own beliefs. Truly my life has been to read. I spend hours everyday reading! I marvel at this time I am given to simply, read! “I am asked by those I live with, what did you do today? I always answer, I read!” I actually cannot wait to finish a book because I have a new one already waiting. Why is that so strange to others, I wonder? I believe it must be a passion of mine, right? The truth is that reading led me to serach for knowledge that I believe was my inner wisdom. My inner wisdom led me to today by awakening me to Reiki which I was told was what my grandmother did as well before I was born, Holistic Belief, and Energy Healing. I am also a self-published author of Making Believers: Connect to the Light within.

I have been told I was a teacher, a scholar, a sage, a monk, a great math teacher who wanted to play an instrument that my parents in that life forbade me to do and I waited until they died to do so. In one life, I was my husband in this life’s, mother. And in another life my mother of today did not let me marry my husband of today back then. These are just a few of my past lives as I have been told.

Of course, I do not only read as you must be thinking. I counsel others and have one-on-one sessions, I am a student with the Deborah King Center program for 21st Century Energy Medicine. I have a monthly Healing Circle of Love that meets in my home, in April I held my first Women’s Discovery Retreat through the Written Word over a weekend in Southampton. In a few months I will offer another Retreat. I meditate and pray daily and weekly I write this blog. I also babysit ( I have four grand babies) and four grown children of my own as well, that I support and encourage on their paths, along with a daughter-in-law and soon to be son-in-law!  I am also married to my childhood, one and only boyfriend for the past 42 years. I have people in my life that I adore, love and enjoy. Great family, friends and clients!

While I sit and think as I am typing here in my library of what to blog? (Yes, I have a library of many great books in my home as well as hundreds of books in my bedroom loft.) What does all of this mean exactly? I am clueless to those past lives but in my heart or I should write my soul I know all of this is connected. I am who I am today because of my past karma. I believe karma does not have to be something that is bad. It can just be that which we learned from in other lives or not and taken with us into this life experience.

I wonder if at times that feeling that one gets as a remembrance is that exact flashback to a time and place from another life that one has learned something that had meaning and was now manifesting in this life?

Can karma be a past imprint like a recording of something that we recognize from a past life?

Can karma simply be an action which is my responsibility today?

Am I responsible for things that happened before I was born?

Does karma mean that I am to see that my life is my doing 100%?

Is it true that there is no such thing as accidents?

Can I be here to enjoy life and all that my life experience offers as much as possible?

Is the saying, “it is as it is” true?

Are those in my life today my soul sisters and soul brothers from a past life experience?

I have read about cognition which is our inner knowledge/perception which has a past recording, an imprint which is our recognition; our karma. That joy is my making, experience of life, my karma. When I recognize life,  this past karma equals my sensation in life. How I handle karma is my reaction. Reaction is in my hands! Life is in my hands!  

Is it possible that if we do not like or dislike anything in life  and simply experience life as it is our karma will collapse?

Can it be that we are here to enjoy and experience life as much as possible?

Hopefully life is definitely alternative and what we think we know is bigger than even that. Maybe we really do not know anything and we are re-living over and over again a past karma.
