"The Language of Energy"

My daughter and I were driving the other day doing some errands when someone honked at us. It made me think about how different it was when I was in India visiting some friends and the drivers there honked all the time. They are even encouraged to honk. Here in the States it is not as accepted and some people may even be a little offended by being honked at. This line of thinking then made me think about the thoughts that we send out that could be triggered by a single action. I also became aware about how we respond in our different cultures to something as simple as a horn honking at us.  
With this in mind I remembered what my grandfather used to tell me how powerful our thoughts can be. If we really think about how much we change and create the world around us just by how we shape our thoughts it is almost mind boggling. A single thought can lead to an action that is behind an intention which creates the energy to bring it into existence. My grandfather used to always remind me to have positive thoughts. At that time I didn't understand what he really meant. Now as I am older I understand more what he was trying to teach me.

As multi-dimensional beings we have the ability to send energy to and around those we think about whether we are conscious of it or not. With this knowledge as conscious beings we can now be more responsible for what we think and the energy that we send out into the world and our own lives. The power of our thoughts is it's own energy language and has so many benefits that are right there within our finger tips. How do we use it some may ask? Well, to answer that you are already using it. The idea now is to be aware of how you can use it.

A technique to help access positive thought patterns can be through fond memories which are a wonderful resource of stored emotional energy that is not only recorded in our brains but also in our cellular structure of the things that we have experienced at one time or another in our lives. All we have to do is to tap into some of our happy memories that hold emotions for us such as love, compassion, acceptance, peace, gratitude, harmony, forgiveness, etc...  as we relive the memory or the emotion that we want to bring up we can bring those feelings into our bodies which will help to change the energy around us. Even thinking about someone we love can bring up emotions of love and joy. Upcoming events that we are excited about can also be used to activate the the emotional energy within us. 

Once the positive memory is triggered then it is a matter of focusing our attention on those chakras or different parts of the body that are in need of the energy. This is when we can then draw in that feeling that we remember letting it fill our hearts moving into the mind, body and soul aligning with this beautiful energy. With the intention in place the body's energy field begins to fill up with the positive energy moving through the physical body and throughout the aura. It does take some practice of holding on to the energy within oneself but after awhile you will began to train the energy field to hold on to those positive emotions for longer times. Then it becomes a habit which can be called upon with just a single thought or even trigger that can now replace a negative one.

 As energy beings not only in the physical realm but also the spiritual realm we can become more aware that we are able to change our own thought patterns and have the ability to step into our personal power. We are conscious beings, are we not? We have the choice to change our thoughts and release into ourselves and the world the positive language of energy that helps us all in creating more harmony within ourselves and each other.

Forgiveness is huge when growing not only spiritually but on all levels. If the biggest lesson in our lives is to learn to love unconditional then how can we even began to achieve that if we can not continue to work on forgiveness? I find forgiveness is something that likes to come back up in many different forms. Just when you think you have mastered it, there is always another situation or person that needs to be forgiven.

When you mention the word forgiveness thoughts of forgiving others tend to pop up but the first step in forgiving others is really about forgiving yourself. If we can't learn to forgive ourselves then there is hardly any hope to know how it is to forgive others. Forgiveness is learning that there are things in our lives that we have said, or done, or even done without realizing we were doing it that have hurt others, and ourselves. These are the lessons in our lives that if we can take the experience and really learn form, we can forgive to move on to higher ground.

It may sound easy but when you are in the middle of a situation it is sometimes hard to see in all directions. This is when you have to not only allow yourself to feel but to experience the humanity and compassion within the individual or the self. Learning to master ourselves sets us apart as human beings as we are able to chip away consciously at the inner diamond in the rough within ourselves to produce a brilliant gem.

Mark Twain once said "The worst loneliness is not being comfortable with yourself." Being comfortable with one's self is knowing one's self, forgiving one's self and loving one's self. It all works hand in hand and how we forgive to live

"A Gift from the Heart"

One of the highest and most cherished acts that someone can do for another is to give something to someone with their whole heart. Lately it has come to my attention of wondering if we as individuals often give from our entire heart. What I mean by this is that there seems to be in no shape or form, any expectation of an outcome or idea of the other person's response. It is just what it is, a gift.

This made me think, so I began to talk to others as I wanted to know what their take on the subject was. When I did this some interesting conversations began to surface on the whole thought. As I began to visit with others I found a pattern that ran in between the lines that that was often expressed in all the conversations. Everyone that I talked to was in agreement that it is always good to give from the heart but an underlying question that came out was that, were we responsible for the outcome of the gift?

Now I know that question seems to be silly when you first hear it but when you break it all down there seems to be a pattern that runs with this line of thinking. For instance what if we gave money to someone who lived on the street, were we responsible for them going to buy liqueur instead of food? Were we by trying to help actually contributing to their addiction or habit?

The other part of this line of thinking that was brought up was that there were people who didn't seem to recognize the actual sacrifice of a gift and often discarded it without really understanding what was given to them. I think the word in this case was appreciation. An example that was brought up was someone taking the extra time to be there for someone else who was going through a rough time and the other person seemed only to feel that they were entitled. As I continued to explore the conversation about giving I was surprised at all the pit falls that I found in the discussions about not giving or even being afraid to give. This made me wonder if we as a society had really come to that place where we no longer gave without any expectation because of fear?

As I searched last week I came upon a passage in a book that I just happen to be reading called The Magus of Strovolos, by Kyriacos C Markides. In it the famous healer Daskalos talks about giving from the entire heart and that a gift that is given this way, in no way has any expectations on the outcome of the gift or the person receiving the gift. It is given out of pure love and only pure love. In that we are not responsible for the other person and any of their actions. We are only responsible for giving something from the heart with the intention of it being unconditional, that is what makes the gift really valuable.

"Unconditional Love"

I noticed that when I mentioned  unconditional love to others everyone seems to have the same basic knowledge and understanding of what it really means. That is the easy part but it seems to be harder to move into the unconditional energy as I have found that we all tend to add our own twist or spin to it. Unconditional is just what it means unconditional but when you place it with love then there are always some kind of standards or fears that can hold each of us back.

Now think about it. How easy it to love your enemy? Were we not instructed to do so? How easy is it to love someone unconditionally if they believe something that makes them different or uncomfortable to be around? What if what they are doing is intolerable and needs be punished. What if someone hurts someone that we love?  Does that then change unconditional into now a judgement? Okay then what does unconditional really mean?

I am not saying that it is easy as surely I find myself in the same boat asking my own questions. But what I wanted to point out is that the energy of unconditional love is something that does pull on our own personal fears and judgments when it is challenged. Standing back to get another perspective we can see that sometimes when we are going through something big in our lives the only control we have is how we handle the situation or react to what is going on around us or happening to us. In those moments we draw in strength or lose our power in what we decide and how it will affect us.

When we move into the higher realms that are more connected to the divine and who we really are, we step into an energy field that only supports unconditional love. It is then when we are in that field we let go of all of our fears, standards and judgments as it does not exist in those realms. That is when true miracles happen not only in our own lives but with those that we are connected to on this plane of existence.
