Dust Yourself Off - Complacency is not an option

So here we are coming to the end of June, and many are still feeling the residual energies of last year.
2011 was a year of chaotic and sporadic energy; immense with change and purging. The changes we faced were difficult to say the least; we lost relationships/friendships, jobs, homes, and suffered from losses across the board.

Hopeful that 2012 would change things around for us, we quickly became aware that change in a forward direction was perhaps not what we estimated.  Expectancy for a better outcomes we held our breathes and crossed our fingers in anticipation only to find ourselves holding our breaths and fighting the bondage of depression, fear, anger, and confusion.  For many, 2012 has not brought change at all – in fact, things have stayed exactly the same if not gotten worse from previous year.

It is in our nature to question why the ebb of stagnation is ever present into this new year and age. WHY?

Why me?
Why haven’t things turned around yet?
Why can’t something good happen for a change?
Will I ever come out of this situation, find job, home, money, love?
Why… why…why??

How many answers can we produce from a simply word – WHY? I have been asked this by clients and friends, I have asked myself even. Each of us has felt the stinging grasp of victim energy; its snare tightly wrapped around our minds, hearts, and physical forms. No one is exempt from its potency and we believe that fighting it will weaken its hold, but it doesn’t – it only holds on tighter, a strangulation of fear and a tearing down of fight.

In the short of it…that is the WHY. We simply give up and give in to feeling crappy. Feeling lower levels of energy staple us to the very foundation of who we try to avoid being.  We surrender, and with it comes insecurity and feelings of worthlessness. Unable to push forward we succumb to “well this is how it’s going to be for now on, so why fight it,” COMPLACENCY.

Complacency as defined in the dictionary:

A feeling of quiet pleasure or security,

often while unaware of some potential danger, defect, or the like;

self-satisfaction or smug satisfaction with an existing situation, condition, etc.

Interesting isn’t it?  “A feeling of pleasure or security – while unaware of potential danger.”
Cannot we not see how settling for our “bad stuff” keeps us attracting the same things over and over again? That is the real “danger!” We become so comfortable in our “yuck” that we forget how good it “used” to be or “can” be. We forget that all situations: good and bad are temporary.

Keeping the word “temporary” at the forefront of our hearts and minds enables us to propel forward. It is what keeps us in motion; pushing forward, not relinquishing to uncertainty, and definitely allowing the tides of change to advance us through any situation. 

When we become complacent, we begin to take things for granted, lack gratitude, and we most certainly do not forgive ourselves for allowing the darkness of the abyss to swallow us.  Complacency = Tragedy and we have no one to blame but ourselves.  We must understand that at the end of the day, there is NO ONE that can propel you forward other than YOURSELF.  There is no greater force in this world than you and your determination. If you began this year with a sense of expectancy for a recovered life and you haven’t achieved it, then it’s time to pick yourself up, dust yourself off, and affirm that Complacency is not an option any more.  2012 is well upon us, make it work for you, set small goals, and take baby steps and giant leaps when possible – never give up and never settle.

Four Myths about Mindfulness Meditation

Four Myths about Mindfulness Meditation (via OM Times Magazine)

by Ronald Alexander The majority of my clients resist mindfulness meditation at first, although the time commitment is small and the payoff is enormous. One insisted that it wasn’t necessary and that she didn’t have enough time in her day to devote to a regular practice. Then she went through the…

Discover Yourself Through Journaling (via OM Times Magazine)

by John Holland There are so many great reasons to keep a journal, that I wonder why it’s not a priority for some. Journaling is a way to capture your spiritual progress and to record the patterns of your life. It’s a way to safely speak to your soul and to develop an understanding of increased…

Some of the new energies of 2012

In a recent conversation with a friend, the issue of the 2012 energies came up. The conversation dealt with how to interpret different discomforts (releases of energies) and what those relating issues meant. During my meditations regarding the energies of this year and in lieu of this specific topic I will share some of the information that has come through for me:

Integrating Spiritual and Holistic Wellness

More and more people are becoming aware of the energetic an conscious shifts that are happening on a global level.  This worldly awareness then shifts gradually on to “self”, and we become more attuned and abundantly clear that we require a significant change within our “selves”.  It is here we begin to ask, “Who am I really, and what am I supposed to be doing? What is my purpose”? There are no easy answers to those questions, but there are steps we can creatively take to ensure that we become more spiritually and holistically conscious.So where do you begin?

Living a Lifetime

How many times have you wondered what your life is all about? If you believe that a single lifetime is not long enough let us contemplate “Life”.

The journey begins from the moment that miraculous seed of light is implanted in the womb. Though many believe the soul does not enter the body until the 9th month gestation period is complete, there is speculation that the soul enters and retrieves at will during the entire gestation period. This is said to happen as to experience certain changes the mothers is going through forming the bond; soul to soul recognition.

Expectancy through Belief

Everyone has a belief is something; for the most part it is this belief that carries us through life.  We Pray, honor, worship, and give offerings to our source of belief.  We do so because somewhere along the line we have recognized that to have faith and belief means that we are receiving guidance, direction, and help.

"Daily Dharma"

Living an overall spiritual lifestyle and what that actually entails. Being spiritual means practicing a dharma. Some spiritual practioners are not in the business of providing service to others, and that is absolutely okay. Being a light worker is not for the lighthearted, and requires a regime of dedication:

Dark Night of the Soul

More than any previous year and in all my years of doing spiritual work on myself and others I have witnessed more and more people experiencing a "Dark Night of the Soul, myself included. For my own purposes, I will not share my personal experiences as each Dark Night of the Soul is tremendously personal and each equally epic in the development and journey toward higher consciousness – Ascension!

Approaching the New Year

As we approach the New Year we begin to review our recent past and consciously focus on all the things we intended to accomplish but never quite manifested. Our intentions are solid and our drive propels us forward with new insight and determination.
