Mercury Retrograde???

I love looking at the stars. I can point out a few of the more commonly known star constellations and I even know where Betelgeuse is (although I did have to go check the spelling!); but I’m not big on astronomy or astrology. Like many people, I’ve had my natal charts done and I know I have 11 water signs in there and that this is apparently a bit unusual, but beyond that I look at the stars on a clear night to experience Yugen. Houses, squares, opposition and retrograde stuff is something I leave to those who find that information fascinating and also know what to do with it!

I don’t go into a panic when someone mentions Mercury Retrograde (a quick check showed that there’s one happening pretty soon – and that they happen frequently too) and when I saw that people were already getting into a flap because they were expecting to experience all kinds of difficulties from the upcoming retrograde, my guides sort of jumped up and down and waved a red flag at me to dig a bit deeper. Why do people think that things are going to be trickier than normal just because, from our perspective here on Earth, the planet Mercury looks as if it’s going backwards in the heavens?

The way I look at it is that these people are expecting difficult things to happen, so when they do happen, could it really be because of that apparent planetary retrograde, or is it that they are actually creating the Energy necessary for things to fall over? Think of the Law of Attraction. I still get that mental image of an “Ultimate Being” sitting on a cloud looking down at the millions of little Beings on the planet and thinking “Oh look… that person really wants to experience a difficult time, she’s forever thinking about it – let’s help her a little and drop a few tricky things in her path!”

This is another case of “You can’t separate the physical from the spiritual.” In our physical world, when people realise that another retrograde is about to happen and they get all hyped up. They start to worry about things breaking down, of losing connectivity with the rest of the world; they worry about illness and work; the kids, the parents, the weather, the dogs…. after all in Mercury Retrograde all kinds of stuff stops working or gets lost or otherwise falls over.

At least, that’s what I was taught in the very early days of my Spiritual Journey: “Keep your head in, because all kinds of horrible things can happen during Mercury Retrograde!” This was followed up with daily discussions of everything that went wrong, or could go wrong, and obviously it was all happening because of the retrograde and not at all for any other reason. Especially not because of something that person did or didn’t do. The fault was always the outside influence of the retrograde. As an example, you are taking the clean washing outside to dry in the sun when it falls on the floor because a handle on the basket broke. That’s Mercury Retrograde of course and not that the basket has been threatening to break for the past three weeks but you hadn’t got around to fixing or replacing it.

A few years back my Teacher, Mentor, Friend and Spiritual Sister, Essence Ka tha’ras described Mercury Retrograde as giving us the opportunity to run in place for a while instead of jogging down the street. Mercury, the planet, isn’t actually stopped or travelling backwards; it simply appears that way to us here on Earth. It’s all about perspective.

To me that jogging in place analogy makes sense. A planetary retrograde gives us a time to pause; to review what we are doing, where we have come from and where we are going. A breathing space where we can see exactly what are the things we need to spend some time working on – for example, in the physical world – fixing that laundry basket! And because we simply cannot separate the physical from the spiritual, it’s the ideal time to start looking at yourself.

What do you think you’ll need to work on during this upcoming Mercury retrograde? Often you’ll find it’s the very things that you worry MIGHT happen!! You have time to look in the mirror and choose – work on these things or just continue to worry about them.

The Fear will Kill You

I was going to post this yesterday, but my computer fell over and I decided that the Universe was stopping me. Today I see why. It’s just got crazy in Europe and the USA. Schools, theme parks, supermarkets….
Meanwhile, in Australia, in the midst of the Great Toilet Paper Debacle our Government has announced that it is going to do it’s level best to support and maintain the economy with a $7.6 BILLION injection.

But Honestly? It’s still the fear that will kill you.

Have you read Bruce Lipton’s Biology of Belief? Man that man makes some sense – and when you understand just how much that fear affects you physically – and especially your immune response – you will start to realise just why you need to start thinking logically and not through that Fight or Flight response.

So. What are you afraid of? That you will die? Yep, that MAY happen, especially if you are elderly, infirm, have a compromised immune system – but heck, we are all going to die at some time. Why panic buy toilet paper? CV doesn’t give you the trots as far as I know. The majority of people will get a cold. Granted, it could be a real hum-dinger and you’ll feel like shit for a few weeks, but something like 99% of people will get over it.

The media are having a field day. Instead of remaining positive – or even neutral – and letting us all know of the thousands of people who are recovering, they focus on the few who are not. This is a time of change for the media – a time when we should be standing up and telling them to start reporting without all the hype. To stop inciting that fear. How do we do that? By not buying into that fear.

Fatalistic? Not a chance. I’m going to do everything possible to avoid getting this cold – just like I have done since 1997 when I last had a cold. I make sure I THOROUGHLY wash my hands. I’ll probably stop indiscriminately hugging people. I’ll support my immune system by doing my level best not to buy into the fear. I haven’t gone panic-buying toilet paper, water or anything else. If I do that – well apart from promoting that fear response, I am perhaps depriving someone else from having those things. How selfish can a human be when they are riding the wave of fear.

So – that was today’s little spat – here is what I wrote yesterday……

You won’t often see me writing about my fears.  Just writing about them does, to my way of thinking, give energy to those fears.  It brings them right to the front of my attention and as a result it makes them grow.  Some people will tell me that ignoring them doesn’t make them go away either – and that is perfectly right.  This is why Fear is such a tricky energy to deal with.

My work in this life is helping people to deal with fear.  I help folk whose bodies have reacted to years of fear by falling over – becoming ill.  Yes, I hold qualifications that help me to guide others, but I am also the product of over 60 years of living in fear.  In my mind, that kind of makes me an expert. 

An expert.  Unfortunately, in our current society just about everyone is an expert in fear.  We are swamped by it day in and day out to the extent that most people no longer even recognise it until something like the Coronavirus comes along and the media has a field day.  Fear sells far more than sex ever will.  Think about it. It’s fear, not sex that caused Australia’s entire stock of toilet paper to be sold in days.  Just think about how ridiculous it is that people stock up to that extent on toilet paper – I should have thought that if you needed to stock up on anything, it would be soap and paracetamol.

I find it quite fascinating: unless you’ve been living in a cave for the last 20 years, everyone knows about how the Fight or Flight Response works and how the long-term affects of living with stress and anxiety issues (caused by fear) affect your physical health as well as your mental health, yet we fall for it every time.  We are addicted to it.  Addicted to the cocktail of hormones that flood our bodies when fear hits.  We watch fear-based movies; read fear-based books, our advertising is fear-based (especially where women are concerned); politics, TV, religion, wars, food shortages, unemployment, the weather…..  Every which way we turn we are bombasted with something that invokes fear.

I live in Australia.  I see the toilet paper fiasco and I’ve posted a couple of ‘funnies’ on Facebook about it – only to get lambasted by those who are travelling that fear-based road.  “I’m not fearful” they say, “just being prepared.” Well, my friends, if you need to be ‘prepared’ by buying trolley-loads of toilet paper, I’d say that there’s a whole lot of fear going on!

I’m not going to rabbit on here about how the Energy side of this works – I’ve written plenty of other articles here in my blog on that topic – All I’m going to say here is please, be realistic.  Unless you are old and/or have a compromised immune system you are unlikely to have anything more than a really bad cold.  And that’s if you even catch this thing!

So now, let me tell you something.  This is how you make fear work for you.  You tell it that it has no power over you.  Fear is the bottom-most rung on the Energy Ladder and you exist way above that.  Then you set your intention that this fear-based stuff is not going to enter your energy field.  Physically you make sure that you do your bit by maintaining good, sound cleanliness practices like thorough hand-washing and not touching your face and then you set your intention that you will not become ill.

By setting this intention – and believing in it with every single molecule of your being – you are emotionally supporting your body; you are physically supporting your body with your good hygiene practices and you are spiritually protecting your body by maintaining your high Energy frequency.

How do I know this works?  Up until 1997 I, regularly as clockwork, had two colds every year.  In that year my husband became terminally ill with cancer.  His specialist told me that with his compromised immune system it was very important that he not even catch a cold.  It was then that I started strictly observing hand-washing / face touching hygiene.  I set the intention that I would not ever catch even a cold.  I re-married in 2004 and one of my guests flew in from Afghanistan where she was deployed in a military hospital.  She inadvertently brought in an extra guest – bird flu.  That one I caught.  Other than that bird flu I have not had a cold or flu since I set that intention in 1997. 

That’s how I know it works.  I’d had a choice.  I could become fearful, watchful and incredibly aware of every little sniffle; constantly giving energy to the fear that I would catch a cold and be responsible for probably shortening my husband’s life, or I could chose not to be fearful and thereby boosting and supporting my own immune system by not allowing those FFR hormones to flood my body.

You all have exactly that same choice.  You can worry about Coronavirus; you can focus on it by reading every article, checking out every ‘cure’; stocking up with toilet paper – in other words you can make it a focus for your life at this time.  And anyone who knows about the Law of Attraction will know that what you put out there, you attract. 

Or you can tell fear to take a hike.  You are aware of the virus – heck if you’ve ever had a common cold (and who hasn’t) well, you’ve already had a run-in with one type of Coronavirus!  You know already it’s only the old and the already-compromised who are at risk of fatality; that 99% of people who get this just have the symptoms of a bad cold;  you can practice good hygiene and then STOP GIVING IT ENERGY.   Don’t attract what you don’t want by always having it in your field!

And now – I’ve given this enough Energy.  I’m off to wash my hands.

Energetically Shooting Myself in the Foot?

There are times when I can be so dense.

I work with the Law of Attraction.  I teach my clients how their thoughts create their reality.  I even paint a verbal picture of how Spirit/Universe/God/whoever looks at Mrs X and says how very much she must enjoy arguing with her neighbour because she’s always talking about their arguments with everyone who stands still long enough to listen, and how Spirit/Universe/God/whoever thinks that it will make sure that Mrs X gets lots of that argumentative Energy sent to her because she obviously enjoys it.  It’s sort-of funny.  What you focus on is what you get is the bottom line of working with the Law of Attraction.

Except….

Except, when it came to me, I totally managed to misplace how Belief also plays a part.  How the deep-down beliefs that we hold – those that are such a part of us that we don’t even consider them to be a ‘belief’ – are also in the game. 

Money is a good example.  Being an older person, but not old enough to retire, I have, for the last year or so, been living on unemployment benefit.  This is roughly 50% of what is considered the bread-line in Australia.  So money, or rather the lack of it, is a constant in my life.

I work really hard to maintain a high-vibrational frequency: I volunteer, I do what I can to help others da-da-da…  I also have this almost-constant refrain rolling through my head about money.  Or the lack of.  How I can’t afford to get my hair cut or a colour put through it.  How I ride a tricycle because a car is way out of budget; how it’s eggs for dinner again because they are cheap.  Anyone on a tight budget understands this – it colours just about every thought.  You have to weigh-up every pair of socks you need to buy against what else you could use that money for.  It’s almost impossible to stop thinking about the lack.

What I also do is ‘flip’ those thoughts:  my hair is beautiful in it’s natural state and the grey is so shiny; the tricycle is fun, I decorate it and put Christmas lights all over it so people don’t miss seeing me; how eggs are no longer the dietary villain but are actually a food that gives me almost everything I need. I am, actually, a heap better off than many people on this planet.   I meditate,  chant affirmations, I work in the physical world to promote my counselling and healing business and keep telling myself that it WILL get off the ground and that I WILL become self-sufficient again and so much more.

But there’s that deep down belief, the one that is always at the back of my mind however much I flip thoughts and actions – that I’ll never have enough money; that money really IS the actual root of all evil, after all it was a major player in all the dramas that have happened in my life…. And on it goes.

Today, I was reading “Act of Faith – Conversations with P’taah” when I had a ‘light-bulb’ moment and mentally slapped myself upside the head!  How many times on a daily basis do I say that “Everything is Energy?”  How often do I bemoan that many spiritual people mouth words but don’t really understand what they are saying?  I actually love these moments when my ‘humanness’- my fallibility is pushed up front so I can’t help but fall over it.  And there it was – the reason my manifestation of a flow of money to me and through me wasn’t happening.  I’d thought I’d been working so hard on not focusing on my lack of money, yet all the while I was still holding a deep-down belief that money was something bad.   I had totally forgotten that money is simply Energy.  No bigger, no smaller in importance than a light bulb or a flower bulb or absolutely anything else in this reality.  Simply an Energy form, made manifest into physical reality in order to exchange it for other energy.  Money itself isn’t evil, money itself isn’t what stops me getting my hair cut and coloured.  Money just is. 

It’ll be interesting, as I work to dispel this belief structure of mine, to observe how it all works.  How changing my beliefs about money from something that has always been a major player in my life dramas into simply Energy, works with the Law of Attraction.  How those pieces of paper are actually unimportant.  It’s the possibilities that they energetically hold that is important.  Everything – including money – is simply Energy.

Thank you BB – I know you have been trying to explain this to me for a while.  I THINK I’ve got it – at least, I am aware and working on the concept!

2018 – A Year of Change

karly-santiago-560707-unsplash

Gosh it’s been a while since I last wrote a blog article.  So much stuff has happened and despite heaps of good intentions, not a lot of writing has made it to this blog!  As I do every year, I hereby set my intention to be more diligent in the coming year.

As many other folk will also do, here is my review of my 2018 – a year that could have been the end-game of a very intense and fraught decade of disasters.  Instead it has been an amazing year.  As I think about the catalogue of woes of this year, I could be forgiven, I think, for curling up, burying my head in the sand and refusing to move into the world, but something happened on 8th January that completely changed how I viewed my world.

Backing up to the end of 2017:  I was living separate from my husband – a decision initially brought about by work, but which became comfortable – in a gorgeous old Queenslander workers’ cottage  three hours’ drive from where my husband ran our holiday accommodation business.  I lived alone with my dog; was studying, offering holistic counselling and spiritual healing and growing into my Self for what was probably the first time in my life.  On December 31st my husband called asking for help with cleaning the holiday apartments as the regular cleaner had been offered another job.  So, 1st January 2018 saw me packing up the bare minimum, throwing the dog in the car and heading back to Hervey Bay.

So many memories of living in that place, and not many of them good memories, so by 8th  January I was emotionally struggling and decided to go to the beach and meditate.  I was really low and although I was far from being suicidal, if the Mother Ship had landed next to me, scooped me up and flown me off to other parts of the Galaxy I’d have gladly left everything behind and gone.  I meditated on gaining more Balance in my life which had been out of control for many years.  Pretty much all my life had been a roller-coaster and I’d had enough.

Spirit sent the answer almost immediately.  I finished my meditation turned around to climb the sea wall back home and slipped on the first step breaking my ankle.  Well – not just breaking it, but doing about as thorough a job of smashing it up as you can possibly do without breaking the skin.  Long story short – I was rescued by the Fire Service, was hospitalised twice, surgery had me become the proud owner of a huge pile of titanium, two months of injecting myself in my belly every day and a total of 9 weeks with my leg stuck in the air.

Oh!  I forgot to mention that I was living with my husband and my dog (who weighed 63kg) in two small rooms at the back of the work office.  No proper kitchen, no view to outside, nowhere to move – pretty miserable.  Enforced bedrest gives you a choice.  You can wallow in self-pity or you can seek the Joy where you can.  I’d had a lifetime of self-pity, I had asked for Balance and although balancing on crutches wasn’t my plan, I realised that this was the start of my learning what I needed to learn in order for that balance to come into my life.

The year moved forward from that point – the bank threatened to foreclose on our mortgages (a whole back story there); the new owner of the business moved in and started running things, and so we needed to get out.  The minute I was relatively mobile we all piled in the car and drove the 17 hours to where my husband’s son lives.

We had absolutely no income and only had whatever belongings we had been able to fit on the back of a ute and we had to sell whatever we had in order to pay the rent.  I applied for unemployment benefit but in the meantime we sold everything including beds, table, chairs, washing machine….  You certainly discover who are true friends in such situation.

This is only the tip of the iceberg of the woes in my family, but you get the picture.  But when I was laid on the beach with that smashed ankle, moving into and out of consciousness, I felt very strongly that this was needed.  That something had to break in order to heal – and I am not talking about the various bones in my ankle!

This was one of those pivot points that everyone experiences at some time.  A time of choice.  Do I wallow, do I bewail my bad luck, do I fight or do I accept that Spirit has a plan?

I don’t see myself as a fighter.  Anything that has a feel of violence – even certain words – ties me up in knots.  I had been fighting for many years, through many traumas and with this injury I realised I had no fight left.  The Law of Attraction was in place – the more I fought, the more stuff appeared that needed to be fought for.  So instead, I Accepted.

I accepted the weeks confined to bed.  I accepted the loss of my home and that wonderful people who are barely more than strangers, went into my house and packed up my belongings.  I accepted that it will take 2 years to get fully mobile.  I accepted that we had fought through floods, bank errors, vicious attacks from neighbours and ex-friends. I accepted the loss of our business.  I accepted the most amazing people who came into my life, sometimes just for a few minutes, sometimes for longer. Spirit-sent for sure.  I accepted more home moves; battles with Government agencies; no income and the need to cancel plans to visit family and friends.  I have accepted that some family members are not willing to help (man that one hurt, but I have accepted) and that other family members will give their all to help.  I have accepted that my Spiritual Sisters are my strongest family.

And in all this acceptance I have learned.  I have learned to see the threads that bind us together.  Stretching throughout my lifetime and the lifetimes of every single being I have come into contact with.  Stretching through all dimensions and ages, I have learned to see the tapestry that is woven that brings me to this point.  This place where I am now.

I see Balance.  My husband met someone who had work available that is exactly what I needed and gives me time still for my Spiritual work.  I am teaching people in my new town the things that are dearest to my heart such as meditation and belly dancing and greeting the Full Moon.  And the people of this new town are the most amazing, friendly, open-hearted folk.  I knew as soon as I first stepped out of the car onto the foreshore of this place that I had Work to do here.  Spiritual Work.  Within days a local lady stopped and spoke with me.  She told me that she knows I have Spiritual Work to do here and that she had been waiting for me.  We have worked together for many, many lifetimes and we both recognise this.  It is a beautiful thing.  Most of all I see the Energy of Spirit behind everything that has happened in my life – and that all things were needed for me to become who I am right now.  Today.

Slowly, the ties to the traumas of the past years are being resolved.  Some are painful, some are amazingly smooth, but one by one they are being dealt with.

And so I greet 2019 with Joy.  I am at Peace.  I survived and came out whole.  I am stronger mentally and emotionally than I have ever been.  Physically?  Lots of work to do there LOL.  12 months being physically inactive, especially when you are no spring-chicken, plays havoc with the waistline and the fitness!!!

Through the entire year, the back-bone of being willing to carry on, are those who helped: my husband’s son and his family and my Spiritual Sisters.  These are true Family.

I am starting to understand the reason I landed in this town, and the lessons I am here to understand and grow with.  I have no doubt that the year to come is likely to have its own set of problems, but I have learned deeply, the adage that everything happens for a reason.  This lesson has cropped up many times in this life, but now I am able to see the threads and the weaving that brings together a Tapestry of Life that continues to grow into it’s beautiful whole with each day that passes and each person I meet.  The difficulties of life offer you the opportunity to tie a tight knot to strengthen that tapestry; an opportunity to change the colour of the thread you have been weaving.  They enrich your life – if that is what you choose.

Flippin’ Heck!

I had a wonderful deep and meaningful conversation a little while ago with friends.  Sometimes such debates will result in nothing more than joy in the talk, sometimes they send me off to research more info, sometimes the conversation just sits in a hidden corner of my mind and will jump out at me days, or even weeks later, with confirmation or an alternate view or a desire to share – such as now.  Luckily for you, dear Reader, you actually get very little of my thoughts.  How boring are those people who spew out every little thought every single day!!!

So, today’s “Deep and Meaningful” is about making the best of a bad situation.  You know those times – we all experience them – when it feels like the end of the world is about to happen and we get so overwhelmed that we just want to hibernate.  Those times when it seems like everyone is chasing you for money – and you don’t have any until pay day; when the kids seem to only know one word “Muuuuuuummmmmm”,  when you miss the bus or train and you are now going to be late for work – and the Big Boss is going to be there and you just know that you’ll get overlooked now for that promotion.  You know the sort of thing I’m talking about.  You are human, so of course you know!!!

So what is it that makes some people just deal?  Things happen and they find a way through the turmoil with barely a hair out of place?  It’s preparation – and I don’t mean preparation like having the kids lunches packed the night before or making sure you have a stash of oh-my-goodness-I’ve-missed-the-bus-need-to-get-a-taxi money hidden in your bra – I’m talking about preparing your brain so that it doesn’t get all panicky and go into Fight or Flight mode where you just can’t think!!!

Huh?

When something like that happens, your brain just can’t tell the difference between missing the bus and seeing a sabre-toothed tiger walking down the street.  Both are fearful events even though only one of them has the potential to kill you!  Your brain turns to mush, sends out panic signals, your adrenals do their thing and you get a rush of hormones flooding your body ready to get you out of the way of that tiger.  And if you haven’t trained your brain to recognise those symptoms (and the fact that there isn’t a tiger) and to stop long enough to allow your logical brain to kick in and offer an alternate solution (like getting a taxi when you miss the bus) there’s your day – ruined!

There are lots of ways you can train your brain – meditation is way up there on the list, but also learning to flip your thoughts.  Whenever you catch yourself having a ‘negative’ thought – flip it.  Always.  Find something positive, or ridiculously silly about the event.  Lik when you are wondering if your butt looks too big – grab a mirror and watch yourself twerking – bet you are awesome, and even if you are not you’ll probably end up in a fit of giggles.  When things start to get into overwhelm, look for the ‘lesson’ so that it doesn’t happen again – like the credit card payments for example.  You missed a payment and really don’t like getting the reminder phone call and you’ve stopped answering your phone unless you know who’s on the other end.  Not a comfortable situation – so brainstorm ideas about how you can make sure it doesn’t happen again.

Even though they can seem huge at the time, you can always – and I seriously mean ALWAYS – find something that is light.

I’m really short of $$ at the moment so I decided to sell a lot of stuff and that gives me lot of choices in how I view these sales:

  • I’ve loved those collectables for years, I want to keep them – OR –  that’s less dusting to do/ less clutter/ I never really looked at them anymore / how nice that someone new will get to enjoy them!  How many times have I moaned about stuff being left all over the place!
  • Why do we have to sell the rowing machine – I was planning to get back on there and lose some weight – OR – well, isn’t it nice that someone will get chance to feel fitter and healthier, because I’ve been meaning to do that for 4 years, and I do really prefer to take the dog for a walk to the doggy park – lots of doggy cuddles I wouldn’t get stuck inside on that rowing machine!
  • The kids have driven me INSANE; why did I ever think I wanted kids?  – OR – when they are finally asleep they are angels/ the little one just brought me a flower from the garden and my heart just melted/ they are going to be awesome, indepentant, strong adults one day

Get the picture?  Go look at something in YOUR life that you moan about, or have negative thoughts about and see how easy it is to flip into a positive thought.

My washing machine got left behind last time we moved – and see the picture at the top of this blog?  That’s my new washing machine!  I get to experience how my grandmother did the washing.  And yes, it’s hard work, but scrubbing clothes up and down that washboard is very therapeutic.  I can meditate at the same time.  I actually like that so much that there is a possibility I won’t rush to buy a ‘proper’ washing machine!!!  Who needs a washing machine when you have elbow-grease and a washboard, warm, clean-smelling water and a far greater sense of satisfaction at a job well done than you get by throwing them in a machine and pressing the ‘on’ button!

If you practice flipping your thoughts, seeking the lighter, brighter, fun aspect of your troubles then they suddenly don’t seem so huge.

So next time you are about to spit-the-dummy or feel as if things are about to overwhelm you just stop.  Draw a deep breath in; close your eyes and slowly breath out and FLIP whatever was about to rock your boat.  Stuff may still go bottom-up but it won’t be so painful or scary.

And for those who follow a spiritual path and understand how the Law of Attraction works – you will find that by flipping all negative thoughts, you start to attract the positive stuff.  Like me.  I was going through a tough patch and had to sell stuff so I could pay the rent.  Then, out of the blue I discovered an old insurance I had forgotten about and phoned up to see what the go was.  And was told that I actually had TWO old insurances I could cash in.  Not a lot of money, but enough to tide me over.  How amazing is that!!!!

I’m off to do the laundry!

Sharing the Energy…

I’m finding a fair number of Facebook friends are spouting off at the moment.  At a ton of different things, and most of them seem to be pointing at things in the physical world that they see through emotional eyes and without any digging into the event to see what really is happening.  Just reading something, getting wound up because, in this day of so much False News, they have a certain innocence and still automatically believe what people tell them.  Let’s have a look at this….  From a basic Energy perspective it is quite interesting.

Did you know that when you respond with an emotional blast of anger, you are feeding energy to the very thing that threw you into a tizz in the first place?

Think about it from a purely practical/physical/emotional point of view:

You read about something that really gets you annoyed.  That gives you a choice – you can react by actually directing that energy into finding more info about the situation, so you are not just being a sheeple, but working out whether it is something you should be angry about.  Or you can just re-post without checking the validity and without adding anything.  You can let your anger blurb out and add your comments to the post (maybe with a whole heap of swear words and finger pointing).  You can also choose to do nothing or even delete the post from your page.  There is probably many more things you can do, but these are the main ones I see.

Let’s look at what happens with each of these things – and we’ll use a scenario that actually appeared on my page a few minutes ago and triggered this ramble.  A local tour boat has been forbidden to tie up at the dock due to health and safety risks.

 

You can re-post without checking the validity and without adding anything:

This appeared in your feed, the person who posted it is quite wound up.  You didn’t know anything about this and it has got you quite annoyed.  But you are a ‘don’t rock the boat’ kind of person, you prefer not to get personally involved, even though you are actually pretty angry about it.  So you don’t bother to find out if this is true or not (and that is so easy nowadays with Google) you just hit the Share button.  That’s so easy and, having done your thing, you can completely forget about it.  You didn’t sound off, you didn’t rant, you just let it flow through you and maybe if you are Spiritual you added a belt of Love and Light.

Except you have 300 friends and let’s say that half of those people saw that re-post.  50 of those friends live in the local area and of those 50, 40 didn’t know about this.  It just dropped into their feed in the same way as you received it.  So now, potentially, another 40 people are annoyed.  Some will sound off, most won’t check the validity.  And I’d bet my bottom dollar that no-one will actually contact the tour operator or the harbour master to find out the real situation and see if they can help.  And if each of those 40 have 300 friends……  Well that is a whole lot of people going through their day feeling angry.

This form of sharing is AWESOME if many of these people decide that they need to physically get out of their armchair, check out the real facts and if the matter is accurate and unjust, go see what they can do to help. Just think Standing Rock.  But really?  In our society?  Mainly we just get good and mad.  Then find something else to get good and mad over.  Humans like to point the finger of blame at someone!

Maybe you get REALLY wound up and have a great rant:

IMG_0379Phew!  Got that out of your system, you kinda let rip but hey! that released the anger and now you can get on with your life.

Except…… Those 300 friends.  They now have the added fire of YOUR anger added to the initial post and there may be some who are offended by the swearing (I’m one of those – swearing is low frequency energy and I don’t want that in my energy field)  So now, YOU may have released your anger by spouting off, but you have just INCREASED the load you have spread around.  And you STILL didn’t bother the check the validity or the reason behind the decision OR get off your chair to do something about it.  Getting the picture?  Those flames are well and truly fanned!

Redirect the Energy:

When the post hits your feed and you get all riled up about it, maybe the first thing you do is say to yourself “Stop – let’s check if this is true”  So many people fail to do this and that is how angry rumours and false news get a foothold in social media.  Let us say that you make the decision to check it out and you turn to Google.  In this way you gain really good information so you can decide if you do need to get good and angry or if it’s all a load of hogswash!  Or maybe there is a really good reason that the boat was forbidden to tie up at the dock.  Whatever it is, you are then taking your next step – sharing or not sharing, maybe telling it as it really is.  The other benefit of heading off to Google first is that you have had time to take a metaphorical deep breath!  You don’t just explode with a heap of emotional-driven superlatives and hit the share button!

You can choose to do nothing:

This one is a tricky one.  A lot depends on your thinking behind this.  Did you choose to do nothing because you are not interested – someone else’s problem, not yours?  Did you choose to do nothing because you know that one lone voice is pretty much lost in the wilderness of all this anger?  Maybe you chose to do nothing because you got involved before in something similar and got hurt.  Maybe you did check it out, found it was true and chose to do nothing because you feel there is nothing to do – there was a solid reason behind the decision maybe.  Some people may think you cowardly for appearing to ignore the situation (I have not followed news media for about 35 years – many people think this of me.  I no longer care what they think.  I know what is right for me).  There are so many reasons behind this choice, but the bottom line is that you are NOT feeding the energy.  Not in a positive way by acting or in a negative way by re-acting.  And provided you are comfortable with that decision and understand why you made this choice, that is absolutely great.

You can delete the post – and maybe the poster:

This is my preferred method.

We have already shown that the post is carrying low-frequency energy in the form of anger.  You have decided you are not going to promulgate that anger.  So you can either leave the post on your page and it will soon move out of sight, or you can remove it from your page.

The reason I prefer to remove such posts from my page is the Law of Attraction.  Yes, that very Law that we use whenever we want to create something in our lives (like money, good health, a holiday etc).  The Law of Attraction doesn’t care what is being asked, it simply reads the Energy.  And low-frequency energy, like anger, on your page will attract more low-frequency anger.  I’ve seen this happen hundreds of times.  It is the very reason why we Admins on the First Wave Blue Ray Indigos Facebook page remove all low-frequency posts.  If we let someone post who is seeking money through a GoFundMe – even for a good cause – there will be 10’s of these in the next couple of weeks and most will not be for a “good cause.”  If we allow an apple-cider cure post – we will be flooded with more apple-cider, garlic, turmeric, ginger cures followed by shampoo ads and even, once, we got a fish tank being offered for sale.  And all this low-frequency clutter reduces the overall vibrational frequency of our page.  And for Spiritual people trying to raise their frequency, it’s like shooting yourself in the foot.

I, personally, do not want that Energy on my page.  Especially if there is a rant liberally peppered with foul language.  My choice is to check out the validity, get involved if I have something I can offer or delete the post if it is untrue or I can’t help in any way.  I also give the poster the benefit of the doubt – sometimes you do just need to rant!  But if all – or even most – of their posts are rants, then I remove the person from my friend’s list.  I don’t need their low energy affecting me.

I have one exception.  One area of zero tolerance.  Outright hatred, bigotry, fear-mongering.  These energies have NO place in my life.  Anyone who posts graphic pictures of the pain and torture of animals or other humans; anyone who spreads hatred and fear of other races, ethnic groups or communities – If this is where your energy lies; if you can share these things, fanning the flames of fear and hatred, even when you may disagree with them, ( the OMG look at this – it’s horrible kind of posts) then you will be removed from my friend list.   I try not to judge – we all have our path to follow, and sometimes I give the benefit of the doubt and just remove the post – but every time I have done this, I find those things coming back.

IMG_1389I hope this has given you some food for thought; that you better understand how easy it is to promote low-frequency energy and especially that if you want to raise your energetic vibration, you really need to be on your toes.  Work on Self doesn’t always mean from a healing / spiritual point of view; it doesn’t mean knowing the ins-and-outs of every Ascended Master – it includes your language use, it includes understanding why you do certain everyday things like having a rant! And it includes understanding the repercussions, Energetically, of those rants or low-frequency posts.

Yep, it can be a good thing to let the anger out – but maybe it is better to do it by yelling at a tree who will only argue back with a gentle, soothing hummmmmmm…..  Me?  I let rip in the shower.  Its amazing how much emotion can be released, transmuted and washed away when needed – without harm to anyone else.

Whatever decision you make – it is YOUR decision.  YOU hold responsibility for not only your Energy, but for how your energy affects the Collective Conscious Mind.  It is easy to see how your possible explosion of anger on your facebook page can affect a whole heap of other folk and can even set off a chain reaction around our globe.

Conversely, each time you choose to share something worthwhile, something that brought you a smile or a laugh; something uplifting or supportive – you feed THOSE energetic flames too.  How much better, I believe, to share the uplifting, positive, high Energy.

Choose wisely how your share Energy.  Your choice has deeper repercussions than you may have realised.

It was a long read – I hope you found it worthwhile.
