- If you’re having a bad day, don’t go try to ruin somebody else’s too. And if somebody tries to ruin yours, realize it’s about them and not about you and move on. Don’t dwell on it or spend too much time thinking about it, no matter how agitated you feel. If it’s someone you care about, let them know that you’ll be happy to talk to them after they’ve taken a nap and have a full belly.
- Live in the present moment. If upsetting memories from the past creep into your mind say well hello honey, I see you but it’s time for you to go now. Each time you do this and get your mind back on track to the present moment, you are training your mind that the present moment is what is important and that you will not let your past continue to haunt you and affect your life. You may have to do this more than a few times but eventually, your mind will start understanding who is the boss. Be your mind’s master, not its pawn.
- Mind your own business. Stop yourself from being judgmental of others and stop caring what people think about you too. If you feel judged by others, don’t let that stop you from living your life to the fullest. You came here to live your life they way you want, not the way others think you should. Some people around you may seem to have made or be making some bad life choices or fashion choices or relationship choices or whatever it is. Well, maybe they only had bad choices to choose from so they chose the best one out of the bunch. If those bad choices are affecting you personally in a negative way, make plans to get far away from them or limit contact as much as possible with them. If it’s someone you care about, offer what help you can but without putting their needs above your own. Help can be in the simple form of creating some great, non judgmental listening space for them to vent and talk about their situation. Hugs are a great help too!
- Take care of yourself. Self care is important for our health and mood but do we all actually do it on a daily basis? The most basic self care is drinking enough water, getting enough sleep and providing enough oxygen to your body. Be sure to drink a few glasses of water a day. No, sodas don’t count. If you don’t like plain water, add some lemon or orange juice to it. No, coffee and tea don’t count as drinking water either. W-A-T-E-R. As for breathing, if you feel yourself getting frazzled in your day, slow down and take some deep breaths. It’s really that simple. A few deep breaths can help clear your mind and calm your nerves. The type of breathing we do to just stay alive isn’t enough in this stressful world so it’s important to do some mindful breathing every day. In through the nose, out through the mouth. Get yourself enough sleep at night and remember that some sneaky naps are great too! Sleeping is essential because it provides a time for the body and mind to renew themselves.
The effervescence of a Sunday morning can be reflected in the moonlight as the dawn takes over to start the day. The willow trees can be observed swaying back and forth, back and forth as if we needn’t have a care in the world. But is this really the truth or is it an illusion? Of course it is all an illusion. All of it. Whatever the illusion is that you see in front of you is of your own choosing whether it gives you happiness or not. Of course you might feel dismay and even anger when reading this. Questions like well do children choose to get cancer? Do people choose to be tortured or killed? Do they choose to be poor and hungry? To put it very simply to you, yes they do.
Everything that happens to you, you have chosen to happen and agreed to it during dream time when you travel out of your body and make such agreements. Certain agreements to experience certain things are even agreed upon before your birth. A lot of people have the belief that if something bad happens to a person, then they must deserve it. This concept is very untrue as there is no god who keeps a tally on people and doles out punishments and rewards. All there is is All that Is, a universal consciousness who doesn’t judge, punish or reward anyone’s deeds.
I remember a story that a friend told me once. He had traveled to Jerusalem with his best friend who had been crippled as a teenager during a botched surgery which led to the oxygen being cut off to his legs. He could walk for a few steps with a cane but needed a wheelchair for anything more than that. So they were in Jerusalem, a place which is the center of so many religions, and he was pushing his friend along in his wheelchair across a busy square. People were spitting on his friend and shouting obscenities at him, shouting at them both them both to go away, waving their arms wildly. My friend was shocked and asked the people why they were doing this. They answered that his wheelchair bound friend must be a very bad person because God punished him by putting him in a wheelchair. This story may be extreme but it’s just one example of how some people believe that there is some god who punishes the ‘bad people’ or ‘bad deeds’ and rewards the ‘good people’ and ‘good deeds’. This is not so and never has been. Just look around the world. Is every billionaire on Earth a saint? Is every successful or happy person out there doing charity work and putting service to others over service to themselves? There aren’t any being selfish or acting in a negative manner at times? Why isn’t this god punishing them? Why isn’t this god striking them down and taking away their good fortune? Some billionaires rape the Earth of her resources and fund and profit from wars that cause human casualties and suffering. Why isn’t god punishing them for these acts? Because that is not how the universe works. There is no reward and punishment system other than the one you may be creating for yourselves through your own free will and we will expand on this in the future.
But what about the other question that rings out from Earth into the Universe so often? ‘Why do bad things happen to good people?’ The answer is that they have chosen for it to happen to them. But why would someone choose for something bad to happen to them? The reason for that choice is for soul evolvement and expansion. Believe it or not, there are some adventurous souls who wish to experience what it is like to be murdered or to be ill with a disease or to lose a limb. Some of you might be in disbelief about this and that is ok for you to feel that. It is ok and perhaps the time will come when you will be ready to accept it as fact.
The fact that all humans choose their experiences doesn’t mean that we shouldn’t have compassion for them or help them in any way that we can when we see them in pain or in need if we feel inspired to do so. In our human experience, we don’t remember the agreements that we have made and therefore may suffer with some of the experiences that we have chosen to live and learn from. This is completely understandable.
After you pass from this life that you are living, your spirit, along with All that Is will rejoice in all of the adventures that you had on Earth and how they helped with the expansion of universal consciousness. All humans are considered incredibly brave and are seen with much respect throughout All that Is. We are all loved and respected greatly! There are also techniques that we can use to ease our suffering on Earth and that is by increasing our vibration. The more that we increase our vibration, the less denser it will be and the less our suffering. Some humans will remain in the lower density and that is their Free Will. It doesn’t mean that they are bad or incompetent or lazy people like many may think. It just means that it is the experience that they are choosing to have and that fact should be respected and not scorned.
Some other time, we’ll talk about how victim and perpetrator are one and the same, playing a role in the vast theater of the Cosmos. This concept can further explain why there is actually no good or bad. They are both one and the same. I’ll also share some simple techniques in which you can work on raising your vibration.
