Getting out of your comfort zone…


…it is never wise to be typecast – not because of others,

but because of your own sanity.

Remember – people can only identify with others in what they know of themselves;

and that can be rather limiting at times.

However, people do know everything;

the thing is that a person only knows as much as their hitherto and current human experience(s) has taught them.

What I am saying is that a person can only affect two frequencies within themselves and/or another person – and that is: HARMONY and DIS-HARMONY. The trick now is to get yourself to a point of personal development in empowering your self – NOT against other people, but against yourself. With other words – make a definite effort in realising how not to give away your power to others.., and things (emotions).

Stop making up excuses to stroke your own sense of righteousness – so if you have e.g. wasted someone’s time; don’t try and excuse yourself - own up to it – end of drama. If you have p’d off a client, don’t come up with all the personal hoohaa as to why – they are the client, they have nothing to do with your personal issues – take responsibility for yourself.

It may sound trite, but admitting to yourself that you cannot be right all the time and that you cannot possibly do everything is not about defining these dramas and putting them in their respective emotional files, but about accepting the situation and recognising that it exists.., and then.. moving on.

“You have your way. I have my way. As for the right way, the correct way, and the only way, it does not exist.”

- Friedrich Nietzsche

---

The world does not revolve around its axis because of what an individual human thinks, nor does it depend on any individual effort or conviction on any individual’s part.

We are life; we are the experience of it and the sum total of it.. on earth.., and thus we are all responsible for the continuation of our existence – as a collective entity..; as individuals, we experience life from an individual perspective on behalf of that which is pure consciousness – no wings, no agenda.., and no expectation or requirement. The molecules and atoms and bombobulations that make up creation come from pure creative consciousness.., and pure consciousness has no preference.

The world is not going to stop revolving or evolving because someone moved your crystals or paperweight.

---

It is also true that people can be quite disappointing to us – that is because of two things: First of all, one can perceive their actions as disappointing and thus personalise it, and thus make it insulting to your psyche. Second, ACTIONS speak louder than INTENTIONS – It is so that, in this earthly existence, our actions mean a hell of a lot more than our intentions - to other people – no matter how you look at it or try and convince yourself otherwise. The thing to note here is that it is not necessarily WHAT you do, but HOW you do it. Always think again why people might get agro with you – it is usually not about you (they are really not even angry with you), but about the way the situation was handled. Take a simple matter of not informing someone of a change of plans that you have known about several days in advance of an event that you have planned. You only tell them a day before the event was supposed to take place. The change of plans was unavoidable, but cost the other person extra time and effort to rectify things on their side – the reason they might be gritty toward you now has nothing to do with the change of plans, but the fact that, because of your failure to notify them in due time, you had wasted their time.

IT IS ALL ABOUT RESPECT! And respect is something you always show – one does not take it out at certain times – it is a constant companion.

“The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains. The superior teacher demonstrates. The great teacher inspires.”

- William Arthur Ward

---

The other thing that people also tend to do is place their power in exterior “stuff”, so as to avoid responsibility of experiencing life for Universal Consciousness.

It is nice and good to know about all stuffs spiritual; however, to go and place your future and happiness squarely ”in the hands” of Archangels, Guides and Ascended Masters and the like, is simply stating to Spirit that you are not prepared to experience the Earthly creation on its behalf. WE ARE HERE FOR A REASON – and you are NOT going to sprout wings – what’s then the point of being here!? Our angels and guides do exist – and their reality is on another plane. They will not interfere with our sovereign experience – not even Archangel Michael. Their only relevance to our plane of thought is one of very subtle assistance (mostly emotionally and psychologically).

All the “stuff” is not important – and giving “it” your power through not believing in your own power, is not spirituality. Spirituality is living this earthly life with what you have and what you can make – within the knowledge of what Spirit is and believing that we are all part of the bigger picture – our part lies in experiencing this particular life as a person – in a human body, with human restrictions, emotions and within an EARTHLY REALITY – for Spirit.

As I said in my book – REALIZING YOUR AUTHORITY – “being too spiritual is no good…, and living without spirituality is no good either…”

What your spirituality is, is your choice alone – Spirit does not care what it is – just let it be a spirituality that allows you to think and reason for your self – a spirituality that will empower YOU as an emissary of peace on earth.

Empowering and disempowering people through our actions and speech..

We all know how easily we can disempower another person though our words – and we often do it without realising that we have done it. Something as small as telling a person that they are fat (when they really are not) will bring about the potential of disempowerment in them. This might sound ridiculous, and you might reason that there is also much to be said for that person’s state of mind in becoming disempowered by such a silly statement; but being kind to others is a sign of maturity. Trying to reason it out with yourself is nothing more than attempting to qualify your dissatisfaction with yourself and this world. There is no love in being unkind. And unfortunately, actual maturity mostly only comes with age and experience. A child might be born with remembrance of itself as part of the One and have memory of otherworldly experiences, until social conditioning and life as a human obscures that memory, but a child is not born with maturity – maturity is gained through experience, which is linked to our concept of time.

So what is ‘kindness’? Well…, we could dissect it and put it in a box, however, what is the point? Kindness, like love, cannot be truly expressed and honestly reciprocated when and if you have not expressed it to yourself first.

Expressing kindness to yourself is not only about buying a chocolate and vegging in front of a good DVD when you are down, but, most importantly, about giving yourself room to appreciate the goodness of others toward you.

To let you in on something I discovered some years ago: A secret to living this earthly life is not about what you can do for others, but what others will recognise in you for you having done rightly onto yourself. When others recognise in you, consciously or subconsciously, that you are kind to yourself, they will know that you are also kind to others. And I mean KIND in the TRUE SENSE of the word.

Kindness is not about giving to others all the time; it is also not about buying that new car or spoiling yourself with an expensive present. TRUE KINDNESS lies in your honesty toward life.

People who give lots – of anything, mostly do so to impress, but don’t tell them that, they’ll swear at you.

To be kind to yourself – and then as a consequence to others as well – is to be found in empowering your surroundings - and those that surround you.

An e.g: Last evening, some friends and myself very spontaneously decided to have dinner together – at home. It had been a very busy and HOT day – and the three of us ended up at home at the same time – all bushed. I had also gone food shopping that day, so we raided the fridge and came up with a stunning cooked dinner between the three of us. We ate around the outside table, laughed, had some wine (me = coffee), talked sense and nonsense, and generally had a relaxing and socialising dinner. We then drove out of Johannesburg to go look at the full moon and stars. And what an experience! One forgets that there are still stars in the sky and peace in this world – I couldn’t stop staring..

Empowering others is about empowering your own psyche with kindness. It is the kindness you find in your heart in allowing others to be whom they are and not trying to organise the world as you wish to have it. Kindness is not something you order on-line and it is not a prescription from a doctor – or spiritual healer for that matter; it is an empowered state that only you can have – no one can give it to you, no matter how hard they try. It is thus part of your Godly state – that secret room within you that nobody can enter – never mind what.

It has been a tough week so far, filled with giving many channellings and massages to clients; meetings and responsibilities also filled every day. And the thing that has stood out to me most was the kindness of a true friend: A couple of days ago, I met up for lunch with one of my best friends – to say goodbye. He is leaving for another country to further his career, and I realised that it was also leaving me… rather lost.

Walking him back to his car, I started to get very emotional and could not get the words out that I wanted to say. So…, in his kindness and wisdom, he put me at ease and started to say what I had wanted. Also giving me time to steady myself and to say “goodbye” in a good way.

This to me was a grand gift. Although we have so many forms of communication today – like facebook, e-mail, cellphones, Skype, etc…, nothing beats face to face communication. So if the opportunity to be kind and empowering is there, then take it and don’t leave it to tomorrow. But remember, that to be kind and empowering to the world, you have to do that dinner and gazing at the stars with friends every now and then.

With all my love and gratitude,

In love and light,

Vision - Own Your Experience



“When I think of vision, I have in mind the ability to see above and beyond the majority.”

- Charles Swindoll

All of us have vision; we just tend to not believe it. We tuck our vision for ourselves away like a used cuddly toy – remembered, but put aside in respect of reality; or rather what we see as our only reality. We forget that we are also beings of natural joy. Our inner cores and basic psychological belief is that we are meant to be happy and joyful. So why are the overwhelming majority of us not?

The reason for this is that we look at life as a chore. It is quite obvious why we look at life as a chore – so there is no reason in discussing it other than saying that we view life as one enormous and unfortunate necessity and pressed-upon-us responsibility. Although Mr Swindoll might have a bit of an unfortunate surname, his quote (above) rings very true in respect that one has to see above and beyond the humdrum of placid expectation. Only then can one actually see the meaning of things. It is not about being able to cast aside this and that; we all are exposed to the things that make our current world society chug along, what we are missing is the ability to know that we can look at things from a different perspective – we literally can drive ourselves to the point of not being able to see the wood for the trees – and this is a major reason why the world has gotten into the state that it has and that our youth are as angry as they are, as they realise that they have been stuck with all this hullabaloo.. (let’s remain descent, shall we).

Now, the question comes up from the adults: “Well…, what are we supposed to do about this?”

Let me tell you – reversing what we as a species have done in one magical spell is not going to happen. What needs to be done is that we need to take responsibility as a whole – the entire human race. Even the children and teenagers need to stop playing the blame game, as many of them have been here before in previous incarnations and have as much part in this as anybody else.

The solution?.......................................................................... OWN YOURSELF.

With other words, own your experiences. Don’t sit in a corner and blame God for having given you this creation and having made you the way you are. We are all part of creation and not a result of random atoms and molecules. Creation is a force that permeates everything and everyone. It created the universe and everything above, below and beyond it. Humanity is only starting to discover what was previously thought impossible. You only need to hop onto the internet to read up on the most mind blowing discoveries that defy logic completely!

“You have got to be willing to put yourself through the paces of doing the uncomfortable until it becomes comfortable and until you realize your dreams.”

- Jim Rohn

OK, enough talk – let me discuss an example closer to home and more individual:

I was invited to speak on a TV program last week regarding channelling – and also to channel information for a lady who has recently experienced a miscarriage. I joined a psychologist on the set and it was amazing to realise that we completely agreed on owning individual experience. We advised the woman in question that she needed to accept what had happened as part and parcel of her experience in this life. There was no purpose in her putting the experience in a box and hiding it up in the attic – even though unbelievably traumatic, hiding an experience as upsetting as that to better serve social conditioning or to try and convince oneself that “it is really nothing” is soooooooo destructive. She was destroying any chance of happiness she could have in her marriage and forever loose touch with those that care about her.

Note: A wise friend will also never tell another that “it is nothing” to try and make them feel better. By doing that you potentially take away a perspective that is not yours to take away…

We also have to remember that if we do not care for our own wellbeing, even those that care for us will eventually feel they are wasting their time – and turn away. This, of course only then strengthens the pain body – and the situation spirals into oblivion.

---

Well, one of our house cats - called Boy – has just decided that I have done enough typing for one day and is pawing my hands and attempting to lie on my laptop – I can just imagine him saying: “You love me long time now.” – end.

Take ownership of your life, your thoughts and desires.

Just thinking of or wishing for something is not enough – you have to do something to make it happen.

"In truth, to attain to interior peace, one must be willing to pass through the contrary to peace. Such is the teaching of the Sages."

-- Swami Brahmanada

Next time, we will be talking about the way one can empower or disempower another person simply through one’s actions or words..
