Earlier today I read a piece on how to make life simpler. One of the ideas said not to expect anyone to rescue you. It is up to us to suit up, put on our own armor and go out and conquer the world. Take what we want.
Isn’t that a rather archaic, unevolved way of thinking and being? Haven’t we all learned by now that sometimes you DO need to “lead the horse to water”?
Let’s face facts here friends. The very system’s which govern our lives are what have created this survival of the fittest darkness. Is that what we really want? Do we really wish to perpetuate a system that says if you are vulnerable or weak, there is no room for you? Continue reading “Rethinking Survival Of The Fittest For A New Paradigm”
I usually keep my predictions to myself or share only with a very small number of people. I have had my share of ridicule and downright condemnation throughout the years because of my ideas/feelings/knowings. However, some of my predictions and feelings are so strong right now, the need to share has gotten to the point where I awoke this morning with this sense of quiet urgency: it is time to go global with my thoughts on what I feel is happening and where we are headed and what is to come. Continue reading “My Predictions”
Hello beautiful people of Mother Earth~
We are in unprecedented times. It is so important that we as a collective whole make the conscious effort to Remember Who We Are. Turn off the outside world and go within to find again that powerful, still quiet voice that leads us Home to Self. Let me help you by reminding you of some things you may have forgotten. Say each one slowly and repeatedly. Let yourself FEEL the energy of the words in your body.
I Am a Powerful, Master Creator.
I Am God/Goddess/Source Energy.
I Am Whole, Beautiful and Worthy as I Am NOW.
I have the ability to totally change my reality and make it into the reality I want. Continue reading “Mass Consciousness – Your Energy And Intention Are Needed NOW”
I subscribed to an e-mail newsletter awhile back on finding your tribe. The guy claims to have found his on some ranch in the southwest. Although reading further into his newsletters, he claims you can find your tribe anywhere you are. Sort of like the “bloom where you are planted”.
While I have been able to find connection pretty much wherever I have lived, I have continued to have this longing for my tribe for as long as I can remember. For those people who are not only like-minded but who totally and completely just “get” you. You know what I’m talking about. You can talk about a subject or topic or feeling no matter how out there and you get the nod of the head. The “me too!”. The hug or pat on the hand. And all of that just feels like HOME. Nothing pretend about it. You have made complete authentic 110% connection with someone. You have found a part of YOU. Continue reading “Searching For My Tribe”
For far too long, the masculine energy has dominated this reality, creating imbalance in all lifeforms. Masculine energy, when balanced, is protective. It gets things done. What we see today is the disease of imbalance – control, competition, greed, abuse and a blatant disregard for the well-being of others and all forms of life.
The feminine energy is nurturing and caring. It is soft. Supportive. Feminine energy has been suppressed, largely because of how we value women and the roles we play. This suppression comes into play as well when we look at those words – nurturing, caring, soft. Those words are seen as “weak” and therefore of lesser value than the masculine roles of “get ‘er done” and “protection”.

In my previous Daily Notes piece I mentioned my ego being the size of Texas. Part of healing the ego is mastering acceptance.
I had a dream last night where I was in front of some apartment or hotel-like place. I was needing to talk with a friend. I was quite upset. She arrived only to tell me now wasn’t a good time – she had someplace to be.
I remember feeling devastated. Alone. I was desperate for someone to hear me and comfort me. And yet here I was in a place I have often found myself when experiencing such feelings – alone with seemingly no one to comfort me or listen. I fully felt that pain in my body in my dream and as I sat down on the concrete ground and began to weep, I awoke. I felt this achy heaviness in my body and this extreme fatigue that I carried with me until I headed to the park with my child where I grounded myself, journaled, wept and eventually let the rays of the sun warm and relax my tired body. Continue reading “On Acceptance”
I have an ego the size of Texas. At times. Growing up, watching the adults around me, I told myself it was better to be the one in control than the one being controlled. I also, naturally, have a very strong will. Put those together, and that is a classic cocktail for creating a monster of an ego.
Thankfully I also have some humility too. And grace. So those times when I feel attacked, not heard or validated and the volcano within threatens to overflow or, god forbid, blows up, I can just as easily be quieted with an olive branch presented with good intention. What started as a raging inferno can quickly turn into a cool flow of sweet chocolate (and for those who know me best, it ALL comes down to chocolate). Continue reading “Ego, Ego, Wherefore Art Thou Ego?”
I remember in my 20’s reading an interview with Nicole Kidman. Speaking of relationships, she said, and I quote, “Monogamy is not natural.” Those words resonated with me at the time, and I didn’t know why. In fact, I was only 25, newly married myself, so I tried to convince myself she was some strange hippy who was into orgies – the only way at the time I was able to dismiss my interest in her words while maintaining my own illusion that I was some pious angel who never even thought of other men much less desired to connect with them in whatever way came naturally to me.
However, as I came to learn, once a chord of Truth is struck within, it never leaves you.
Never. Continue reading “Redefining Relationships”
Given my recent piece on money and another piece on solving the problem, I thought I would make today’s Daily Notes on the thing we all love to hate and hate to love: money.
I have a love/hate relationship with money, like many of you. I love it when I have it and hate it when I don’t, which for me means I have hated money my entire adult life.
:::insert pause for laughter:::
Seriously though. I have come to believe and know for a fact that money is a means to enslave us and control us from how happily/easily we live to how we feel about ourselves. Anyone who struggles with having enough money will tell you it is easier to be happy when you have enough money on a consistent basis. And those folks (myself included) will also tell you there is a general impression in our culture that those who have the most money and are financially stable are given more respect and feelings of worth. I saw this in spades growing up as a child and it made me uncomfortable then while today it rather repulses me. Continue reading “Speaking Of Money…”
I had a very interesting, passionate conversation with my neighbor about the right to self-govern. He holds the belief that we need government to maintain civility, to solve poverty and to make sure our kids are off the streets and well-educated. Interesting perspective, I stated, hand on my chin, pondering what he had said.
My mind began to form an opinion in response. It took me a few moments as it often does. Thankfully, for the most part, I have become much better at giving myself this necessary time instead of spouting off whatever comes to mind, which always leads me to feeling lesser about myself and with lingering regret.
