What people think of me is none of my business. I want to, in tandem with episodes from my life, show how this philosophy gets reconciled with truth, peace, spiritual growth and integrity. And furthermore, how anyone can achieve this impeccable ideal. Learn how to avoid the pitfalls of crazy-makers, gossip-mongerers, chaos junkies, and provocateurs of drama triangles. Learn to quit being a victim of other peoples’ words. [Hints and specific instructions included.]
The Law of Attraction is a buzz word these days isn’t it? So is the book name, The Secret. And although I have vaguely discussed how this seemingly relatively new and popular theosophy has come into being, I have also discussed and shared that The Secret was by no means the first to introduce the concept of metaphysical attraction or the Law of Attraction, or attracting abundance, or whatever new meme-speak you want to call it.
Hopefully this article can delve a little into how we can make some perception shifts and small changes so that our *insensitive* world either does not seem so insensitive or, even better, that we begin to not notice the insensitivity! When we truly do honor who we are, the opinions of other people do not matter! So getting to this self-acceptance seems to be the key doesn’t it? How do we that? Hopefully this article will give us that solution. This article is especially geared for the HSP’s or multisensories but can help anyone who feels *more different or odd* than the *normals* of the world.
How often I was at the whim of the world, constantly waiting for permission to take care of myself…But now today, after having developed my voice and after readjusting my priorities to putting my spiritual growth as a priority over societal expectations, I notice just how many people are seemingly comfortable with the dis-ease that says, “We do have power over other people.” Is it any wonder why alcoholism, codependency, emotional and mental illness is growing now increasingly more common? (How many pills can big pharma really invent before we begin to notice the larger picture? it’s not us! it’s *societal dis-ease*!) From shaming and blaming techniques to manipulation and steamrolling tactics with “shoulding you* over what you *shoulda* done. Who are the few chosen to stand up in the face of this worldly dis-ease? If you choose to be one, I will stand with you as I share *my* stories and *my* experience, strength and hope. You are not alone. So take care of yourself. You ARE the most important person. [This is one of my longer articles but I hope it brings something of value to you.]
Manifesting into Physical Existence. Four Basic Metaphysical Lessons in Learning how to Manifest your Life. Manifesting items into physical existence as a topic for an article is easier to swallow for practitioners and students of metaphysical spirituality or metaphysical and gnostic christianity. For others, this article will be a waste of time. I implore those who may have found this article by “accident” or to answer some questions, approach this with an open mind. Your life will change 180* [I swear on everything holy] if you simply apply these four principles. Even if you’re spiritually evolving at this moment, take any challenging situation, apply these principles in tandem with your prayer [or petition or spiritual treatment] and you WILL get results. I dare you to begin applying them.
The Law of Attraction is not new. Contrary to the pop culture at the moment with the introduction of a now popular book, this concept is more than thousands of years old. Although I’ll eventually get to that, I wanted this article to show how very simple manifesting our reality into existence really is. Yes simple. Though, if you’ve read any of my other articles you’ll see it’s not always so easy to apply. But read this article for yourself to start with and later I’ll address issues surrounding application of the principles that I’ve run into [and maybe you have too?] and under no circumstances do not ever purchase anything you cannot afford that promises abundance. They can no more promise your successful application than I can. But I promise to help you do your best - at no cost.
[Part 2/2 : Ecclesiastical Christianity vs Jesus of Nazareth] “Gnostic: 1. Relating to knowledge, esp., esoteric mystical knowledge. 2. Concerning the Gnostics. A Christian heretic of the 1st-3rd century claiming mystical knowledge.” I am a heretic because I refute claims of orthodox doctrine from probably any church in existence today. And I’m not alone - Jesus was a heretic too.
Have you ever manifested something into existence? Do you even think it’s possible? I know it to be true, at least for me, because I have led a life of such occurences. Surprisingly my most recent accomplished manifestation was something I’d needed for two years and not yet worked on. I finally got to work after writing the “Karmic Manifesto of 2007.”
‘Controlling codependent bitch’ was a term that showed up in my internet logs last night as a search. I feel the person’s pain who made that search. Sick of being controlled and manipulated by people in our lives until we’re overwraught ourselves to the breaking point. This article is an example of me being put to the test.
Through non-violence Gandhi led a nation to independence. He said “The science of war leads one to dictatorship, pure and simple. The science of non- violence alone can lead one to pure democracy…The states that are today nominally democratic have either to become frankly totalitarian or, if they are to become truly democratic, they must become courageously non-violent.” March 19th will mark the 4 year anniversary of the U.S. being in Iraq.
“So on March 05 2007 when I surprised my beloved in telling him I was hitting the sack at 9:30 pm due to exhaustion I knew there was something to it. In bed I recounted where I would be at 9:30pm on March 05 2005.” Whether you believe in cellular memory, refeeling of past events, or consider yourself HSP, I wonder if this is Universal Karmic law at work, or reserved soley for those of us who are of the empathic or higher crown chakra temperament.
This is a true account of a “sleep experience” I had with entities I call demons a little over ten years ago. At the time I didn’t know much of anything about Astral realms, parallel dimensions or out of body experiences. Regardless of whether it was simply a vivid dream or a real merging with an unfamiliar realm, today it is still the scariest sleep experience I have ever had.
Do you know what it means to be an HSP? Have you ever had vivid dreams, foretold the future, or experienced any sort of paranormal activity on a regular basis? Are you highly empathic and are certain people drawn to you? Have you always sought to find a higher spiritual meaning, even sometimes fighting the calling simultaneously? You may be chosen. Would you listen if you were?
I want to reprint my thoughts on the difference between spirituality and religion. Here’s one way I’ve heard the difference phrased: “Religion is for people scared of going to hell. Spirituality is had by those who have been there.” I’d never been scared of going to hell so when I found myself there and escaped again, spirituality became my daily driving force. Not out of fear of going back to hell but out of love for what little heaven my life had started becoming.
Given that I seem to offer plenty of book reviews I imagine it feels like it would make sense to compile it into a bookstore. Spirituality, Metaphysical spirituality, Law of Attraction, metaphysical concepts, codependent recovery, Highly Sensitive Person books, relationship health, INFP personality type books, Jesus of Nazareth teachings as well as Gnostic Christianity.
My personal soil - I am of the opinion - was not yet ready for The Book of Secrets when I embarked my maiden voyage. Yours may be. Maybe your daily living is already such that your soil is tilled and ready for this new planting.
Oh this is going to be a philosophical one, isn’t it? I can tell from the title this is going to be a philosophical one. Thinking aloud. Who shall my audience be for this article? Shall it be the realist or pragmatist who would believe in only one reality? Or shall it be my HSP […]
I’ve manifested illness. Last year I suffered terribly and extensively up until 2006 from one thing or the other. I had never been this sick before. But, yet, I’d also never gone through a divorce or had a job in the outside world before.
Don Miguel Ruiz’ book, The Four Agreements, started me on a spiritual journey that would lead me into renouncing the rules that kept me sick and suffering. These four agreements have transformed my life and I believe that when approached by anyone with an open mind - usually only those who have been mangled quite well - can transform their entire life’s approach.
God speaks to us. It’s no mystery or puzzle. God is not the enigma. We are. We ignore, avoid, run. God makes it quite plain no matter your path. You may justify it, deny it, cover it up, or hope so bad it to be different you let it go unnoticed but the signs are there.
Since I seem to have gotten my spirituality back after much struggling from the past year, I have decided to make a new category with the hope I’ll have opportunities to notice more growth.
Detachment. Those close to Buddhist Philosophy understand that detachment is the secret to happiness and serenity. It is not a concept for the faint of heart because it means detachment of all things, people, concepts, ideas. Even this article. How can this be? Because, my friend, you are a wave and tomorrow it may no longer apply.
