Letting Go.... and Creating Your Own Reality...

There are times it's not easy to Let Go. Not even when we know that something we are hanging onto is hurting us. Whether it be a situation, an addiction, a relationship, habits, ideas or beliefs that are doing us no good whatsoever...even when we are aware that something 'is bad' for us ... we tend to keep clinging to it. A sign that we are still clinging to what is harming us usually means we have not accepted full responsibility for creating our own reality about 'what happened.'
Part of what I see as damage caused by certain New Age gurus (it's not _ONLY_ organized religion that has harmed our psyches) who told us that we had to 'work it out' ... 'think it all the way through' ...ANALYZE it to death! ...but it seldom made the problem 'go away.' Often the problem just fed on this 'therapeutic unwavering attention'....Constant analyzing of one's 'problem' is another way of -refusing- to give it up.
We call it our spiritual duty to "fix it." Fix it so we can solve the problem, live in peace, and have 'closure.' (I really dislike that word!) Sounds relatively simple, eh? Seldom worked. Often we were encouraged to keep 'digging deep into the past' to find 'the root of the problem.' Always looking for the bad stuff!
We were encouraged to concentrate on the problem rather than on the solution ... Good ol' Siggy Freud: if you don't 'expose it all to the light' it will breed catastrophe in your deep, dark subconscious... and we accepted that line of ap-cray for a long time. Along with religion this idea taught us to believe that we couldn't trust our inner selves. Not only does modern psychiatry still chase after this idea, so does a lot of "pop-psychology therapy" forwarded by the New Age. I FINALLY understand what Seth was talking about when he told us--you can only HEAL THE PAST from THE PRESENT!! There is NOTHING "back there" that isn't right here....right now... A perpetual archaeological dig into the dark, mysterious caverns of the mind is pure unmitigated bovine disempowering and fear based as it can get. An occasional dig might be helpful, but as a way of 'solving the problem' its a total flop.
It can be very difficult at times to accept full responsibility for creating 100% of our reality. But if we don't, we will never heal. I'd often become annoyed and judgmental towards some friends who refused to believe we create it all; most likely because I was having my own struggles with it at times! But once we DO --Once we really get the hang of it -- of accepting and claiming it all -- we are on our way to FREEDOM and a joyful re-connection with Source...the kind of connection that makes us FEEL GOOD!
The recent death of a friend brought me to a place of 'seeing' this in a way that I just didn't 'get' before. I have been through exhausting emotions: anger, grief, frustration, and more anger. So much of my anger was because he and I were not on what is called 'good terms' before he died. Then I discovered it was not really a big deal...because 'good earthly terms' is not what we are here to learn. We are each here to learn about ourselves. I am not telling 'the story' ... that's of little importance...only the results are. WHY the story is much more important than the story itself. No wonder the P's say Stop telling your stories!
Each of us are vibrationally drawn to the people we need to experience. Sometimes we choose them before certain's all agreed upon, but of course, we totally forget that here on Earth...UNTIL we learn. We are NEVER EVER born to "save the world or each other" ... but to work our way back to self-empowerment, self-realization, and our true connection to Source, We have all kinds of adventures along the way (read Seth Speaks if this interests you)... The ones who seem to be the ones who nearly break our hearts and minds -- are there for us...and we for them. But don't let "co-creation" get you off the hook. You are not hear to learn to "forgive the other and get your gold star whammed onto your forehead" You are hear to see who we call "I" is supposed to see that which is holding us hostage. It doesn't make any difference if your encounters were with the most horrible people imaginable and it's not about all the BAD things they did to you (or we to them!) ... we are hear to learn from it... and saying "Learning to avoid the bastards" is far from the answer... There is no escape. No hiding place. It really is all about us.
Our 'goal' is not to be the "victim who survived" or the person applying for sainthood because you have "forgiven" some schmuck; and neither is it our goal to say "I have learned not to be like them" ... all of that stuff is so arrogant, so self-righteous, so velcro'd to the Ego who wants to be 'right' and get that recognition from 'others OR... their god' while feigning humility.
If you are standing on a road and a car is coming towards you, it's prudent to step out of the way. Right? Two things here. Number One: Why were you on that path (vibrationally) and, Number Two: Assume responsibility for being there and stop blaming the oncoming car. (Seth might even like that analogy! heh! )
As Abraham tells us: NOTHING comes at us "out of the blue"... it's all vibration and frequency and the P's back them up on that in all their teachings.It's not about right or wrong. It's not about all the "yeah but you just don't know how badly I was treated, hurt, devastated, etc etc etc" ... Yeah but's of ANYkind mean we are not ready to Move to A Higher Frequency because in clinging to our justifications it simply means we are not ready to Let Go. That's all Letting Go is really all about: accepting that we create it all. No, actually we don't need to understand the details. Eventually we will just FEEL..we just KNOW the peaceful answers to all those WHY'S that we pout around about like demanding toddlers throwing a fit. (or however it is that we play our little games...)
These 'new times" are really calling upon us to 'grow up'...and start accepting the roles that will allow us to be who we really are: Creators....and allowing ourselves to be that in the Field of Love just waiting for our acceptance. Namaste'.

When People Do Not Want Freedom

"When people are convinced that the self is untrustworthy, for whatever reasons, or that the universe is not safe, then instead of luxuriating in the use of their abilities, exploring the physical and mental environments, they begin to pull in their realities to contract their abilities, to overcontrol their environments. They become frightened people and frightened people do not want freedom, mental or physical.
They want shelter, a definite set of rules. They want to be told what is good and bad. They lean toward compulsive behavior patterns. They seek out leaders - political, scientific or religious - who will order their lives for them.

"Session 834, "Individual and the Nature of Mass Events" Seth / Jane Roberts
It's hard to believe that anyone...anywhere...would not want freedom. As Abraham says: "The basis for life is freedom." It's hard to believe anyone would actually choose to relinquish their freedom (or choices) to anyone else. You might know or recall someone of whom this behavior is true. We all have known people who are co-dependant upon one another. Our responses and reactions to people who always seem to rely on another telling them what to do, is usually disturbing. Could this ever be true of us?

Even though it is not part of our innate good nature to want others to tell us what to do, how to act, what to think or say, or how to perceive anything, we were born into a society in which this is accepted as "the right thing to do." From the time we were toddlers, we were 'told what to do and how to act.' Fortunate are children whose wise parents encourage them to experiment and think for themselves and to TRUST their own judgment. Our parents or elders usually meant well. They simply followed what they were taught.
I truly believe that everyone reading this has grown spiritually by leaps and bounds...and that we have more frequent and prolonged periods of being Awake, "seeing" what obstacles we have overcome and recognizing those things we are still in the process of overcoming. And we will! We are learning to trust in ourselves, believe in ourselves, and LOVE who we really are! Not some phoney, fake, idealized goofy version of a 'perfect me'...We know better now. We are in a constant state of 'becoming.' We are finding that other people's opinions simply don't have that same hold over us. And, for the most part--we allow others their really weird opinions! Nerd That is true freedom.
This means we are overcoming our own fears. To say we have no Fear is to be in denial and refuse to examine our own thoughts and reactions. When we get to the point where we no longer spend a lot of time worrying about 'what he or she or they might think, say, or do' we continue to be even more Awake..Fearful people who are worst off, are those who need to continuously ask others 'what to do' do so for two reasons: First: The person believes the other is 'better' ...and Second: He or She will think that this 'better' person will like or approve of them more by their flattery.
Vibrationally people will always find just exactly who they need to teach them by mirroring back to them .Sometimes it can be very painful to experience. Law of Attraction just "is". People who are fearful of thinking for themselves and making their own decisions -- will always draw to them people who HAVE A NEED to boss them around. Both sides are going through inner turmoil.
Those who 'need' to be abused will always find an 'abuser' ...even though this happens unconsciously. Those who believe they deserve to be treated well, will attract people who do so. When we start to Awaken and realize that our thoughts and emotions are creating our reality, we will stand at the threshold of a doorway that has a sign over it, saying: "Believe in Yourself, Think for Yourself, and Love Yourself" and we will DO it! With the energy being SO strong as it now is, and Time seeming to go SO fast...we need to, more than ever, center ourselves, meditate, slow ourselves down, know what our priorities are and stay with them . As the P's say --Your Intentions are most important: Intend JOY, SAFETY, CLARITY, and HARMONY... and let your mantra be: "I am always in the right place at the right time, saying and doing the right thing."
Those who know that the Power they are seeking is inside of them...know this is true and know this 'works.'
Namaste'. Flowers

About the SPA, Joy, and Playing!

The greatest spiritual influences on my life have come through the teachings of:
Flower Seth Flower Pleiadians Flower Abraham Flower
Now that, I was thinking, is a pretty good SPA! I saw all kinds of symbolism in the word SPA and in the above picture! -- so I figured... this will work just fine. Even though very different in their approaches, the underlying messages of these Beings are very much in alignment.
Each issue will include quotes and comments from all of these teachers. I hope all of you will enjoy the new approach and find something positive and inspirational in each issue.
"When one has been born and has died many times, expecting extinction with each death, and when this experience is followed by the realization that existence still continues, then a sense of the divine comedy enters in! We are beginning to learn the creative joy of PLAY. I believe, for example, that all creativity and consciousness is born in the quality of play, as opposed to work, in the quickened intuitional spontaneity that I see as a constant through all my own existences, and in the experiences of the ones I know. I communicate with your dimension, for example, not by willing myself to your level of reality, but my imagining myself there. All of my deaths would have been adventures! --had I realized what I now know! On the one hand you take life too seriously, and on the other, you do not take playful existence seriously enough!"
(Seth Speaks, re Jane Roberts, Chapter 3: 10:11 PM)
"Good humor activates the body, creating a sense of ease and well-being; cares and woes are released and forgotten by those who engage in laughter and fun by opening themselves to creatively innovative wit.
People who laugh can see through things; to seek out heartfelt, eye-watering,
good-natured humor, rather than sitting in front of the 'doom machine' television."
(Path of Empowerment, Pleiadian Wisdom for A World in Chaos, re Barbara Marciniak,
Chapter 3, Accelerated Energy)
"Milk every moment for all the pleasure you can get from it. When you say, "It is my dominant intent to look for things that feel good, today. No matter where I'm going, no matter what I'm doing, no matter who I'm doing it with, it is my dominant intent to look for what I'm wanting to see, to look for things that feel good," and the more you develop the habit of that kind of vibration -- the more the Universe understands that that's who you are! And so, the more you have access only to those kinds of things!"
(Excerpted from the workshop in Albuquerque, NM on Sunday, May 9th, 1999

We DO take life too seriously...because we were taught that was the 'right thing to do'...but now we know that it just doesn't pay. Even when we are faced with a plethora of problems, pain, and predicaments...'getting serious' about it means, like Abe would say, we are traveling UPstream, against the current. We can always find something to be happy about and grateful for...if we choose to look for it. The only thing that holds us up is all of our 'logical' yeah, but's!...We really do need to learn to "milk every moment for all the pleasure you can get from it"...because THEN Law of Attraction will start bringing us what we want. May take awahile...but at least we will be flowing downstream. And that always feels better! So, whatever floats your cork...go for it.
