Compassion

Much is happening to create discord as fear increases within and without. With fear being generated at these levels it means that things are being shaken up enough to release it out into the world. There are those that see this happening and know what it truly is.

When the darkest parts of Oneself is activated, it creates the opportunity to observe what is available for healing if desired, and how to heal it. When healing is not initiated the fear is released. Fear cannot reside within without finding release. This fear then joins with like energy and draws experience to the person releasing the fear. This is a continuous cycle until something changes, for fear begets fear and everything has a breaking point.

Observation of fear shows the person what is generated within; fear or compassion. This reveals what lies within Ones being, and is a guideline for truth. When One has healed the darkness from their being, and encounters fear, compassion is stimulated. This compassion is used to diffuse the fear and send grace to the heart of the darkness that created the fear. This creates opportunity for a moment of clarity and a feeling of peace within that place of darkness. When enough compassion is sent forth to a situation or person, the outcome can be changed as compassion dissipates fear.  Therefore the darkness that generated the fear is met with copious amounts of compassion, which is pure love. When this compassion is generated from a healed source with clarity of being, it creates miraculous results! Not only does it diffuse the fear, but it creates an instantaneous healing!  This gives One in fear clarity and opportunity to look at what the issues are that need to be transformed.  The more compassion One emits, the more light and clarity are generated, and the more powerful the compassion becomes in its ability to heal and transform fear and darkness.

The more work that is done with the virtue of compassion, the more One is transformed within and inspiration is generated for the conversion from fear to love.

Be Well, Be Love

Forgiveness is for You

Forgiveness is the most challenging of the six virtues. Yet, forgiveness is the key to evolution! The other six virtues cannot carry the evolution of your being without forgiveness.

Forgiveness starts with awareness. Being aware of something or someone that warrants your forgiveness is paramount to beginning the process. There are two parts to forgiveness. Forgiving the situation or person, and forgiving yourself. One cannot be forgiven without the other, for if you don’t forgive yourself, the act of forgiving is nullified as the pain is still there and nothing has truly been healed.

Forgiveness is a process of removing the need to blame someone or something for the pain you are feeling inside due to something happening that you have judged as an assault upon your being. This can be something you consciously experienced or something you have been programmed to believe. Either way, you believe you have been robbed of an opportunity to be happy. We are all responsible for our own happiness; either in understanding that we were temporarily under someone else’s jurisdiction, or the judgements we make because of feeling powerless. This belief or judgment creates resentment and becomes the pain that we feel in relation to the person or situation at the center of our being. The belief that the other person knew that they were causing you pain further exacerbates the experience causing you to feed the pain with more grief, and allowing further injury to occur. This is a never ending cycle of blame and self torture that grows making you a victim of your own misconceptions.

Forgiving is not an easy thing to do as it requires you to be responsible for the pain that you are feeling. The only way to forgive is to feel responsible for the pain and resentment you are feeling. No one can hurt you unless you allow them to do so. You were willing to allow someone to hurt you that was injured themselves. No one causes anyone pain unless they are in pain themselves. The question to ask yourself when potential injury arises is; what part inside of you is weak and subjective to injury by the other? Once this is identified, how can you strengthen that part of you to avoid further distortion or injury? Finding a way to avoid the situation from happening at all is the mark of an expanded consciousness and willingness to take responsibility for your being. This is the mark of a spiritually mature being, and requires courage to move past the need for acceptance and approval. Once you have discovered the power within yourself to provide all that you need, forgiveness can begin. You will actually want to forgive those you feel have wronged you as the imprint of their pain upon you is gone.

Forgiveness is for you. Although you feel it may be letting someone off the hook, you do not have that power. The person was ‘on the hook’ already and that is why they injured you, otherwise the situation would have never happened. Bring yourself to the point of being willing to forgive and you have come more than half way! The joy and happiness that lies on the other side of forgiveness will take you to newer heights of love and peace within. No one can do this for you, this is your expansion and personal Spiritual Awareness that only you can heal and empower. There is much grace here for you. Feel it and it will give you strength and will.  Be Well Be Love

Faith

December 29, 2014

The Season of Faith is upon you and knowing where faith comes from is important.

Faith is born from the ability to believe in something or someone, regardless of proof.  Faith coincides with trust, in that having faith means a trust is in place upon the person, concept, or idea to be what it is professed to be. This is not an easy thing, as this faith and trust must also reside for one’s self. These ideals can be present when a feeling of confidence lies within. Knowing the source of the object you have faith in is important and must be thoroughly believable. We have all experienced a letdown when faith was shattered, which means trust was not in place. Faith is also important to ones beliefs creating energetic responses that endorse your feelings. Whatever or whomever you believe in will sanctify your faith.

Having faith in yourself and believing in your process is imperative to the evolution of your being. Only then can you trust yourself to be a force for good in the world. We are all here to grow and maximize our potential for the evolution of our being. Having faith and believing in ourselves is a major step on our spiritual expansion and conscious awareness of being. Opening to the belief that all you think, say, and do has a purpose and will serve the highest good within, may find you more aware of your actions. This motivates life purpose and is the answer to the question ‘what is my life purpose’.

Faith in yourself creates a ripple effect as it animates your actions and frequency to the world. This is the unspoken part of your presence. This lasting impression of your way in the world draws matching frequencial expressions to you. It rarefies your being to a higher sense of clarity and vibration. These are the things that matter more than what we feel is needed in our lives. There is no greater sense of love than faith, trust, and belief in one’s self-expression in the world. Finding that level of awareness within cannot happen without clarity of thought and faith in one’s self. The world is made of distractions to keep you from discovering this truth. Once you decide to live your life with purpose and faith in yourself, you will find peace and a depth of love that emanates from you and to you. This frequency of being will be realized as grace to those in your life that need it most. Have faith in yourself and be on purpose with your presence.

The path of forgiveness

How do I forgive………..truly forgive?

Forgiveness is a path and a process. To truly forgive, one has to open themselves to all possibility and non-judgment. One cannot forgive while in judgment of another, or one’s self. Judgment stands between you and forgiveness. You are programmed to judge. When you judge someone you cut off all possibility for forgiveness. Judgment comes from the ego. Ego attachment is a powerful thing, and one cannot decompress the programming while the ego is running things. So, forgiveness is connected to all that you believe. The ego, as we have discussed before, doesn’t like peace. The ego thrives on crisis, chaos, and conflict. This keeps you distracted and keeps you from conscious awareness and love. Becoming aware of your thoughts is a first step to questioning yourself and your beliefs. When you have a judgmental thought ask where the thought comes from. How does the thought feel? Does this thought bring up other thoughts? Allow your thoughts to unfold back to their origination. Experience the feelings these thoughts generate. What do they feel like? At this point, you might have lost the original thought of judgment, and are into the place where the thought truly comes from. This is the place where healing begins.

Most of your beliefs are about yourself, as this is what you use for perception and comparison for judgmental thinking. This is a place of fear within your being. This is the seat of the ego. This is where all thoughts, feelings, judgments, and opinions come from. Why do you feel threatened? What is the basis of your fear? What if you didn’t believe what you are thinking? What if you believed the opposite, or just decided that this thought was not true for you at all? What would change? How would a new thought feel? Where did the original thought come from and who does it serve? Would there be utter chaos if you believed something different? How would that affect your life? At this point, notice how these questions, and the different thoughts they generate, feel within your heart. Your heart is the seat of your truth.

Thoughts are frequency. When you think certain thoughts, they generate a vibration that draws experience to you. The universe is interactive. You are the creator of your life. Whatever you think draws that experience to you, as you are creating by thinking. Your life emulates your thoughts. Your thoughts are generated by your beliefs. If you want to change your thoughts you must change your beliefs. Finding the answers about your beliefs lies within your programming. If your life is not working, it is because you believe something that is not true for you. This has nothing to do with religion or politics. It has to do with your inner relationship to your life, and those within it who have programmed you to believe what they thought was true for them. Most programming stems from lack. This sets up striving. Striving is unreachable. Striving makes you ignore the truth. Truth surfaces when you allow yourself to just be without believing anything your ego is telling you. You can distinguish the ego, as it comes in as thoughts that attack, judge, and create fear. These thoughts almost sound like a different person ‘selling’ you on its ‘product’, which is nothing more than its beliefs. It poses itself as defending you from an enemy. Do you see how this elaborate scheme is hooked into your being? You deserve the truth. The truth is that you are a loving and deserving being of light, and nothing but that truly matters. It doesn’t need to be complicated. If you were to stop enforcing someone else’s agenda, you could change your life. Most of what you believe is simply not true. If you were to change your beliefs, your thoughts would align with the truth, and forgiveness would flow. All would then be as it should be. When you allow yourself to find the truth it will set you free!

Acceptance

October 26, 2014

The healing continues with discovering pain [misunderstanding] within and turning it to understanding and then acceptance.

Once the mind connects with the heart there is a ‘spark’ of understanding that opens you to the healing process. The question is then asked

“do you want to heal your pain (misunderstandings)”? You are always giving yourself the choice to heal or not.

With some, there is a lot of personal identity that is wrapped up in their pain. Healing [understanding] will change their identity causing new aspects of their genuine self to awaken. It is the mind/heart connection that begins the process of transformative healing.

If you so choose to heal, it is at the moment of acceptance that the mind/heart connection is kicked into gear. This action draws to you the energy, grace and situations (people, ideas, and events) to assist you with healing and transforming your pain to ‘light’ [understanding] and acceptance. During the healing process the challenge you may face is keeping the mind/heart connection, for it is the intent of healing that must be upheld. If your intent remains solid, the healing will progress. This may not be as easy as it sounds, because many personal beliefs, people, and paradigms may be connected to your pain [misunderstanding].

As each aspect of healing surfaces, you will be given the chance to see things as they truly are [clarity] and a choice to heal that faucet of your pain. This intent to heal is an ongoing process, and might possibly create major changes in your life. You will find the process to be about allowing and acceptance of all that has happened and finding the understanding that it is about evolving out of the ‘fire’ of your life into the stream of higher states of being.

We are all here to evolve at our own pace within the atmosphere of free will. This is the power of being that we all possess as we are all powerful beings having a human experience! The path you take is up to you. Do you choose to play the victim or be the evolutionary being you are? Unite yourself within which will eradicate the power of the ego and give yourself permission to be who you really are; One that makes a difference instead of creating indifference. It always has been and always will be about you and what you do with the choices you are given. Be well, be love

Forgiveness & Patience ~ part 2

 

October 20, 2014

Sophia, I have been working very hard on forgiveness, for without it I feel I cannot evolve. Whenever I think that I have managed true forgiveness, something comes up to show me that I may have not completely forgiven. What is the work that needs to be done once the intention to forgive is in place?

Dearest One, forgiveness is a process and as such cannot be done in one ‘sitting’. Knowing that there are several layers on the path to forgiveness and patience with your process, is key.

Forgiveness is intertwined with time, others, and yourself. When one feels a need to forgive a deep injury, the past must be brought up which is the timeline associated with the situation. This incites the chain reaction of being pulled out of the now (where you have done some work on this issue), and into the hurtful situation as it happened. If you have done any work around forgiveness of the situation, recreating it should feel different, and another facet of the situation should be apparent. This would be the next layer to work with in your process.

It is easy to get ‘stuck’ in forgiving someone for a violation you feel is unforgivable to you. This then requires that you go deeper into where the belief of the violation comes from. Is there a programming issue at work? Another words, were you programmed to believe something that felt violated? If so, is this your belief or someone else’s that you acquired and were taught to make your own? If this feels right, it would be wise to consider the belief system you have around the issue. Sometimes it is easy to tell when the belief may come from another source by looking at how resistant you are to the defense of your beliefs. When one does not want to consider change, growth and evolution is stopped.

Sophia, I can see how forgiveness can involve more effort than just ‘talking’ yourself into it. I know personally that in the past I have made the decision to forgive through analyzing, which did not work.

You are correct! Forgiveness is not of the mind (ego). It is of the heart. This is why most cannot complete the process. Deep forgiveness delves underneath the ‘chain of pain’ within the heart. Each event, person, or situation is interlinked with one variable; and that is you. In some situations forgiveness of yourself for not being ‘loveable’ or ‘good enough’ is enough to heal. This could very well be the only act of forgiveness that may truly matter!

I understand that forgiving ourselves is very important, for without that we have not stopped the chain reaction of creating situations that require forgiveness. What about a true violation such as rape or murder?

Yes, this is the highest form of forgiveness and the most difficult. This requires you to ‘see’ with a higher mind/heart connection. This is a deep injury that has many facets to it, and in some cases cannot be undone due to the level of guilt intertwined within the injury. Guilt is the highest form of punishment that the ego generates to keep you ‘in line’. Guilt is the ‘hold card’ for the ego that can undermine anything in your life. In the case of an ‘unforgiveable’ situation, the first step must be the willingness to let go, forgive, and heal the pain that is caused by the situation. Pain is addicting, for it gives some ones a reason to be weak and feel victimized. Healing and forgiving lifts you out of the process of victimization, and allows you to see the bigger picture that involves all that we have discussed. Remembering that you are responsible only for yourself and your actions can help you see the event from a ‘third party’ viewpoint. You must be willing to step outside of the pain of the situation to see the larger picture and the part each one had within it. Only then can you find a speck of understanding within the event. Knowing that you cannot change anything that has happened helps to pull you out of the fog of the pain. Loss is a part of your evolution. Being able to understand this clarifies and refines your being. It lifts you to a higher place of understanding and love, for this is what your higher instinct knows you are working towards. You cannot have higher evolution of your being with lower level unresolved pain and guilt. This is your path to peace, joy, bliss and love for yourself and others.

Thank you, Sophia!

Judgment/Non-judgment

October 12, 2014

Dearest Ones, open your heart to the energy you have been experiencing and know that this is a frequencial alignment for your evolutionary expansion. It is all about clearing yourself of old energy and ego attachments. Everywhere you turn there is a ‘mirror’ for you to see yourself as you truly are. This is a gift from spirit, and a way to perceive yourself from the outside looking in. Do you like what you see? Paradigms are changing, and this is how it has to be done…..individually…from within.

As these energetic shifts are happening, it is part and parcel of a Divine plan to create spiritual evolution which takes you away from ego thinking, feeling, and living. The trap of the ego keeps you in judgment of yourselves and others. It is a good first step, to become consciously aware of your judgments. It is so engrained in us [to judge] that you judge without knowing that is what you are doing!

Some of your judgments come from defending yourselves by judging others back. That is, judging someone that has judged you. Do you see how this can keep you so occupied? What if you allowed the other person to be what and who they are without judging them? Does your judgment of them actually change anything? Does it make you feel better? Let’s look at where judgment comes from……

First, it does not come from you……the authentic and genuine you…..it comes from your ‘program’. This is a program everyone has. It is instilled by those that nurtured you first, which are the ones that gained your trust without earning it. These are the ones you turned to for approval, love, and acceptance. You believed everything they told you, including how to judge others including yourself. How can we not think then, that judging is not ok? Everywhere we turn there is a system set up for judging and if you don’t judge, you are not ‘normal’. Judging is not from the heart, it is from the ego, and it feeds upon itself.

You are hardest on yourselves as you are taught to police yourselves and others along the way. You were not taught to allow others to be who they are and love them anyway. You may be of the belief that you know ‘best’ and can help others by changing them to something better. Can you see how this can occupy most of your existence?

A big part of non-judgment is trust. Trusting that all will be ok without your judgments. Trying to change the outside world is not going to make you feel better. It is not possible anyway. You cannot change anyone or anything because the true change that you are seeking must come from within. That is where you can effectuate the transformation to who you really are. Accepting and allowing life to evolve without your judgments is a challenge and must be done consciously. If you have someone or something in your life that is not what you want, instead of judging them, look at what it is inside of you that doesn’t like what is happening and why. You might find that the very thing that bothers you has nothing to do with the other person and is something within that needs shifting, cleansing or healing.

Allowing yourselves to trust and love is one of the most difficult things you can do. With most of you, trust was broken early in our lives and we became leery of ever trusting again. Judgments seems to keep you feeling ‘safe’ because it keeps a wall between you and the other person. A wall is easy to build because in most cases it immobilizes love. Your judgments then are the bricks that add to the wall, strengthening it along the way. If you didn’t believe your judgments it would not be such a problem. But then, why have them if you don’t or won’t believe them?

When you can drop your judgments of others, and look within to the reason you are judging and work on that, then there is hope for change. Dropping your judgments will give you power within by transforming you into who you really are which is a powerful, spiritual being of light and love. This path, should you choose it, can lead you to living a peaceful and joyful life lifting others up and helping them along the way. This is the way of life that leads to living your bliss. Be well, be love
