Three Cheers for Life

When you were young, you wanted to be grown up. Now that you are older, you wish to be young. What did being grown up mean to you back then? And what does being younger mean to you now?
 
We are talking of two sides of the street, and you would like both at the same time or at your choosing. Perhaps you would like to crisscross. Perhaps you want what you want when you want it.
 
There is a good side to everything, and so you might like to please yourself more, more often and for a longer spread. It has to be better to be easy to be pleased than to be easily displeased. Better to smile than to frown. Better to be simple than complex. Better to be straight as an arrow rather than every which way. Have the intent to be glad rather than glum.
 
This is such a little change in direction, and it will change your life. Your reception of your life will certainly change your life. One way or another, how accepting you are of your life or how you push your life away makes all the difference in the world.

Do You Have These 6 Psychic Senses?

Just like a river, spiritual information is constantly flowing by.  Sometimes sensitive people naturally reach out and touch these rivers of information.

Sometimes these abilities are also related to radio waves where we tune ourselves to pick up different frequencies.  This information is received by our higher or psychic senses and we typically are more dominant in one or two of these senses.

Some people who naturally tap into these senses can be a bit overwhelmed by it at first.   It takes time and practice but it can become a controlled and even fun experience over time.

We have five main senses; sight, hearing, smell, taste and touch.  We also have psychic senses.  Typically we align these with our 5 basic senses because it makes them easier to understand and to train.  We also add in a 6th sense into the psychic sense list because there is a higher sense of intuition that is important when studying psychic abilities.

GFP Newsletter - 10/31/2014

The master said, "There is no mind, so what type of state are you asking about?" It is difficult to understand. People come to me and they say, "We would like to attain a silent state of mind." They think that the mind can be silent; mind can never be silent. Mind means the turmoil, the illness, the disease; mind means the tense, the anguished state. The mind cannot be silent; when there is silence there is no mind. When silence comes, mind disappears; when mind is there, silence is no more. So there cannot be any silent mind, just as there cannot be any healthy disease. Is it possible to have a healthy disease? When health is there, disease disappears. Silence is the inner health; mind is the inner disease, inner disturbance.

So there cannot be any silent mind, and this disciple is asking, "What type, what sort, what state of mind should I achieve?" Point blank, the master said, "There is no mind, so you cannot achieve any state." So please drop this illusion; don't try to achieve any state in the illusion. It's as if you are thinking to travel on the rainbow and you ask me, "What steps should we take to travel on the rainbow?" I say, "There is no rainbow. The rainbow is just an appearance, so no steps can be taken." A rainbow simply appears; it is not there. It is not a reality, it is a false interpretation of the reality.

A Powerful Technique for Releasing Painful Memories and Learning to Live in the Present Moment

HJ: Painful memories only stay painful as long as you repress, hold onto or try to escape them.  It’s honestly just as easy to let them go.  That’s right, even the most painful, traumatic memories can be ‘let go’.  We can bring love to them and heal ourselves of the weight and burden.  It’s really only our fear or denial of them in any way, shape or form that gives them power over us.

Eddie Yu shares his personal story of releasing painful memories and offers some powerful practices to help you begin the process in your life.  This is important work for anyone on the conscious path, interested in deep healing.

Virgin Galactic's SpaceShipTwo Crashes

Some rather unfortunate news, we just learned Virgin Galactic's SpaceShipTwo has crashed. Virgin Galactic has been working hard to make civilian spaceflight a reality, and we hope this isn't too big a setback. From NBC:

Virgin Galactic's SpaceShipTwo rocket plane exploded and crashed during a powered test flight on Friday, resulting in one fatality and one injury, authorities said.

The explosion occurred after the plane was released from its WhiteKnightTwo carrier airplane and fired up its rocket engine in flight for the first time in more than nine months.

"During the test, the vehicle suffered a serious anomaly resulting in the loss of the vehicle," Virgin Galactic said in a statement. "The WhiteKnightTwo carrier aircraft landed safely. Our first concern is the status of the pilots."

7 Things That Can Block Your Spirit Guides

Your angels, spirit animals and spirit guides in general are supposed to be connecting and communicating with you, offering guidance for your life and acting as a source of light and encouragement. If you aren’t experiencing this, what’s the problem? As it turns out, it’s probably largely you yourself that stands in your own way, as well as the way of your spirit guides!

Connect With the Consciousness of the Universe


Jed Shlackman, Contributor
Waking Times

The concept of spiritual energy is as ancient as humanity, with nearly every culture having beliefs and practices related to tapping into a spiritual source for energy and well-being. Spirit refers to the essence of life, the active consciousness that flows throughout all things in the Universe. The Taoists have referred to this prime essence as the Tao, and its expression as the energy of life as qi or chi. Yogis have understood that the energy of life they refer to as prana comes from a spiritual source. Christians engaged in spiritual healing speak of the “holy spirit” and may see the Christ as the conduit or Source of healing power. In Western occult traditions there is the idea of the 5th element or quintessence, the spiritual source from which all the perceived elements of the Universe have arisen. Hollywood producer George Lucas brought these ideas into his epic Star Wars saga as an exploration of the workings of “The Force.”

Tread Lightly

As you journey through you Earth-plane existence, be aware of your soul and its movement.  During your encounters with other souls, tread lightly.  This does not mean ‘walking on eggshells’….it simply means moving softly through your life.  If you have to shove past, step over, step on, use guile to get what you want or take from another, it is not the way of The Universe.  Be true to yourself, but also be very aware of how you are allowing yourself to be perceived.  You can choose…..you can always choose. ~ Creator

Daily Message ~ Friday October 31, 2014

There is always a joy or a blessing that can be found in any situation. And as you become the seeker of the blessings that always exist, you will notice that they become easier and easier to find. You will have shifted energetically to the point where extreme contrast is no longer required to help you define what you wish to experience. From there you will find your path smooths out, that it becomes calmer, more comfortable, more consistently enjoyable. You will have your own oasis of peace, no matter what storms others may need to create for their own self definition. You will be creating consciously by choice, which is always a far more enjoyable experience. ~Archangel Gabriel

Keeping the Seven Chakras Healthy

Written by Wes Annac, The Culture of Awareness

I don’t claim to be an expert on the chakras, but I’ve learned a little bit about them. I decided to open up and see what tips I could receive about keeping them healthy, and the words you’ll read here are what resulted.

I’m sure most of you know about the seven chakras, and we’re believed to have even more chakras beyond the basic seven that’ll come online as we continue to raise our vibration.

Chakras are literal etheric energy centers that bring through and interpret the creative energy of the higher realms, and we unknowingly use the energy that comes through them to create/sustain our reality and keep our bodies physically healthy.

Keeping our chakras healthy is as important as keeping our physical bodies healthy, and as our collective vibration continues to rise, more people will become aware of the chakras and the necessity to treat them the way they’re meant to be treated.

Minesweeper – How Activism Works

Minesweeper - How Activism Works 21st November 2014

By Zen Gardner

Contributing Writer for Wake Up World

How Activism Works

“Being the change we want to see in the world” is first and foremost. Our lifestyles, disengagement from the matrix and raising of consciousness are paramount.

But with that comes activity. We cannot be consciously aware of what’s truly going around us without being prompted and moved to tell others what’s going on and doing something about what’s set before us. Creating a conscious awakening has to take place before anything else.

You never know just what wonderful energy you are helping to release into the fray when those you affect join the awakening.

How Does It Taste?

An aging Hindu master grew tired of his apprentice complaining, and so, one morning, sent him for some salt. When the apprentice returned, the master instructed the unhappy young man to put a handful of salt in a glass of water, and then to drink it.

"How does it taste?" the master asked.

"Bitter," spit the apprentice.

The master chuckled and then asked the young man to take the same handful of salt and put it in the lake. The two walked in silence to the nearby lake, and once the apprentice swirled his handful of salt in the water, the old man said, "Now drink from the lake."

As the water dripped down the young man's chin, the master asked, "How does it taste?"

"Fresh," remarked the apprentice.

"Do you taste the salt?" asked the master.

"No," said the young man.

At this, the master sat beside this serious young man who so reminded him of himself and took his hands, offering, "The pain of life is pure salt; no more, no less. The amount of pain in life remains the same, exactly the same. But the amount of bitterness we taste depends on the container we put the pain in. So when you are in pain, the only thing you can do is to enlarge your sense of things... Stop being a glass. Become a lake."

From Mark Nepo's "The Book of Awakening"

5 Ways to Stop Giving a F*ck What People Think

woman-enjoying-rain

We’re all guilty. Every day from the moment we wake up, we live our lives caring what other people think of us.

We accept the status quo for what it is because everyone around us does. We tip toe our way through life by doing things in order to please others, not because it’s what we believe in. Eventually our actions, appearances, and lives become molded by how we think other people perceive us. How are these pants going to make me look? What will my colleagues think if I spoke out? Are those people talking shit behind my back? If I take this job, what will my friends and family think of me?

Just writing that paragraph alone gave me a headache. It’s exhausting. It’s dreadful...
