I’m stepping aside

I read a quote on awakening that stopped me in my tracks.

“Man is God asleep.

God is Man awake.”

fractal-big-bang, oneness, evil, why do bad things happen, love, light, spiritual, awake, awakenings

The quote is seemingly so simple yet the power emanating forth is undeniable. It’s like it contains the keys to the universe and if we only truly understood it, on a vibrational level in our being, then we would wake up instantly.

I want to understand it. I want to know it’s truth.

I feel I have some awareness that I’m asleep, and mostly due to the experiences I’ve had, while only momentarily however, of being awake. These moments were my personal experience of sudden awakening or spiritual awakening, and revealled to me just how asleep I’ve been.

And when I drop back down into walking slumber what I notice most is our inclination for conflict. We seek it out. We revel in reasons to blast our anger and hate out to the world, and often is the case that we do it unwittingly. Many people justify it’s worth because they’re directing it toward a perceived ‘evil’ person, or violent, or mean, or insert worthy insult – person. Yet we fail to see that inciting hate, even through directed anger creates more of the same, and it’s the cause that’s begging us to bring into the light.

Our internal need for persecution of another, no matter how justified the cause is perceived to be, reveals our own inner demons. It only serves to reveal our hidden guilt, our shame, our ‘evil’ thoughts. It serves to show us what we hold within ourselves. Yet usually we’re so caught up in the external direction of our anger that we miss what’s really going on.

Well I’m stepping aside. No cause, no person, no situation warrants projection of guilt, no matter how grand or horrendous. It’s time to stop joining in on the ridicule.

It’s time for love, compassion, understanding and acceptance.

And most of all, it’s time for forgiveness.

Forgiveness for all.

And not because I’m better than some and therefore have the right to forgive, but because of the true spirited meaning of forgiveness. I wish to pass forward, through vibration, the recognition that nobody is evil, that many are lost and misguided, and that all will awaken. And when we awaken, and possibly a little before, we’ll all realise our true nature and that we’re all (yes I said ALL) quite the opposite of evil indeed.

When this takes place, all will be dissolved in an instant and we’ll return to love.

We’ll be light. For that is our true essence.

We’ll laugh and our energies will merge in loving oneness, in true acknowledgement of what is, and all else will be long forgotten as it never really was.

Cosmic Play

spiritual awakening, sudden awakening, wake up, dream reality, acim, a course in miracles, eli jaxon-bear, quote, waking up, dream, growthWhen you realize yourself as completely empty and devoid of all form, this is wisdom.

When you realize yourself as the fullness of love overflowing itself without object, this is bliss.

And when you are aware of yourself incarnate in the appearance of form, this is leela.

-by Eli Jaxon-Bear

The word Leela is used because there is said to be no exact or accurate translation. It is a Sanskrit word that means ‘play’ however not as we know it. It is cosmic or divine play, as we would if we truly knew this were an illusion with no consequence but to keep us spinning around rising and falling in and out of illusory pain.

 

 

Why we dream.

Last night I had a dream that was so real and vivid, it was an all-encompassing sensory experience. I was eating octopus. It wasn’t what I wanted or what I thought it was, and the sudden realisation I had tentacles in my mouth was disgusting. I ran to the bathroom and spat them out in the sink.

I still remember the taste, (I know, weird thing to dream about – and it was more twisted than that with a flavoursome freudian skew but I’ll spare those details). It was disgusting and bits and pieces were stuck in my mouth. I vividly remember reaching my fingers into my mouth and pulling tentacles out, throwing them into the porcelain bowl. The resounding feelings were shock and disgust.

Dreams fascinate me. Many people have gone down in history theorising their purpose, right from being that which our subconscious cannot integrate from our day thrown back up to us calling out for healing and understanding. Others say that it’s relating to ourselves and our life in metaphors, with hidden meanings and messages. Others have said they are meaningless.

But what if they were our teachers? For years now I’ve been enthralled by the idea of the dream reality. A Course in Miracles teaches us that Oneness is literal and our reality is smoke and mirrors created by a single thought. That none of it is real and it’s all a fantasical light show created by yours truly. And when this idea triggers people, it’s hard to fathom that it could possibly be true.

Yet our dreams occur each night, at the transition from one day to the next, offering us an experience of a reality where, in the thick of it, we do not know we are dreaming. We forget. And the people in our dream seem separate to us, they chase us, they harm us. Our emotions feel real, we feel hurt, shame, sickness, panic. All of the emotions of life. We feel real fear for our safety and often we live within the confines of what we believe to be possible, using our legs for running or finding a car that we can drive.

And then we wake up.

The relief, it was just a dream.

We let go of the pain the other people or characters in our dream caused us (even if they were people from our current life) under the rationale that it was just a dream. There can even be some embarrassment when we study the phenomena that we created all of it ourselves. No-one else was there at all. The pain, the shame, the chase – was all played out by characters we’d created, puppets that we were leading. But it felt so real, didn’t it?

It really felt like they were doing something to me!

But it was all me.

There is a great Taoist parable called The Butterfly Dream. It goes something like this;

Once upon a time I had a dream that I was a butterfly, fluttering here and there, to all intents and purposes a butterfly. I was only conscious of my happiness and experience as a butterfly and unaware of any other life I may have been leading. Soon enough, I awakened. And there I was, a man again. Now I do not know whether I was then a man dreaming I was a butterfly, or a butterfly dreaming I was a man. Between a man and a butterfly there was no distinction.

Some time back when I was deep in meditation I had an experience where I was confiding to my trustee guides that people had been mean to me. I was very upset and stated my case. My perspective then zoomed way out and I saw that I was the only person and I was asleep. There were many guides and angels by my side, encircling me with love and support, yet I was asleep and I was the only person in the cosmos. The only human in existence. No one could have possibly done anything to me in reality because it was only me. There was no-one else.

I feel the purpose of our dreams is to serve as a constant reminder that while this reality may feel real, it is not. And we’ve been missing the message because we’re lost in it. We’re lost in the dream. We are convinced it is real. My story is real. My pain is real. How could it not be?

What are your thoughts on the dream reality?

A Question of Awakening.

I hide from it no more poem-spiritual-awakening-death-reborn-life-healing, self healing, blog, love
as I gather up the trash laid bare before me,
buried in the rubble of my old bones.

Hugging, holding, loving,
finally accepting and seeing truth
as all dissolves in the light of one passing,
and all I thought to be real
exists no longer, and through love
a new reality emerges.

New yet ancient,
and all my fears existed not.
If only I’d known to flip the coin
and behold the other side
as truth
but that was further than my reach,
as the voices of masses grew loud
and years ticked by like the second hand on a big round clock.

Alive dead reborn, alive dead born
it was all the same as misery
entrenched us.
The decision to awaken always there
as we flailed in the dark
not knowing how or why
or even that a light switch was so near.

Energy Reading for October 2016

number-9-meaning-energy-reading-psychic-free-reading-healing-forecast-prediction, love, healing

October is here and many people feel ready to see the end of 2016. It’s been a huge year. That’s right, it may have felt like it was just you, but it’s actually been BIG for everybody.

We’ve all been going through a time of great upheaval.

Change is afoot and is affecting our lives in a major way. People are moving  house, changing jobs, getting fired, ending relationships, getting sick, recovering. And this is all part of the energetic plan for 2016.

2016 is a completion year. It’s a 9 year.

The meaning of 9

A 9 year is all about endings, resolution and completion. We get the chance to change what is not working in our lives, and if we don’t then we’ll get the old kick up the bum from the universe and it’ll happen anyway. Many people, who haven’t been proactively changing aspects of life that aren’t working, are now experiencing a sort of divine storm, bringing about the change that’s required.

We’re setting the stage for the way we truly want to live – the way our soul intended. And the way we go into 2017 determines the platform for the next stage of our lives.

This is a great time to embrace change. To no longer put off the things you’ve wanted to do. To follow your heart’s desires and to slow down, and listen to your soul. It’s calling to you; but it whispers, sending subtle messages to you which can be easily missed.

It would serve us too, in this completion year, to review any pain we hold in our hearts. This is a year to leave the past behind us, however we can only truly do that through forgiveness. Forgiveness gives us the gift of letting go of the past through love, instead of burying it and hoping it’s no longer affecting us.

number-9-meaning-energy-reading-psychic-free-reading-healing-forecast-prediction

How to create more ease

  • Try as best you can to accept change into your life as quickly as you notice it occurring. For it’s the resistance of change which brings about our suffering.
  • Reflect back on the changes that have been occurring and find aspects to be thankful for.
  • Review your past heartbreaks and pain from a place of loving compassion and understanding. Try to see the perspective of another and allow them to be a human just like you, who may not have all of the answers and is just doing their best.
  • Meditate on how you would like your life to be. What’s important to you at the end of the day? And how could your life reflect this more?

What does this mean for October?

October is our chance to take flight. Changes are still occurring however many have been made and this invites next year’s 1 energy into our reality. That’s where the fun begins!

This month is your chance to follow those little urges of the heart, and the universe will be right with you holding your hand, and encouraging you every step of the way. Following your calling and your soul’s path will be easier, so even if there’s something that you feel has ‘failed’ in the past, yet your heart still yearns for it – go for it now. All is aligning for a higher path, one of happiness and fulfillment. All it takes from each of us is courage. 

A note to go away with

It’s been a stressful time for a lot of people, so lets remember that and help each other out a little. If a waitress snaps at you or someone cuts you off in traffic, why not try and send them some love, instead of reacting and biting back. You never know what’s going on for them and what kind of day they’ve had.

Soften into your heart and let yourself dream. What does your heart want to do? Your soul’s urges are often not big profound actions, they’re small and joyful, and often the greater path will not be revealed until you’ve been following your small urges first.

Now is the time for flight. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Light Lives On – but it’s not out there.

rob-gonsalves-amazing-artwork-self-realization-healing-love-wake-up-awakening-source-despairI felt a great sense of relief today when I remembered that the answers I seek are not out there. And it only takes an instant, a moment of holy realisation to drop the search and shift the focus.

No amount of perseverance, no job, no special love, no war won, no goal reached will bring me the feelings that I seek. Because what I seek doesn’t live out there. Out there is the mirror for which I can grasp at and reach to all I like, but I cannot bring it nearer.

I must stop clutching at hollow reflections and start sinking back into their source. And that source is me. It’s all of us, yet we cannot do it for another. We must do it for ourselves.

We must cease to judge and silence our condemnations, and turn ourselves around instead, all of the way, until all that we see are ourselves.

To deeply see ourselves are where the riches lie. But they don’t appear as riches as we might have hoped. For all we seek is hidden under a veil of pain, anguish and despair. But it is there. And it is worth it. Do not be fooled by the layering upon layering of mud, each one serving only to distract us, urging us to glare outwardly once more.

Do not be so easily perturbed and tricked into outward expression of inner pain. Sink deeper, well below the smokescreen we’ve built to hide what we’ve forgotten was ever there at all.

Sink deeper friend and so shall I. And if one of us forgets and peers outward for a moment, remind me kindly, for that which I seek is for me to find and always within reach.

For it never really left and lives patiently within.

Are you afraid of death?

amazing-art-awesome-beautiful-death-afraid-of-dying-reincarnation-what-happens-when-we-die-spirit
I know I know, we’re not supposed to talk about it. It’s scary or morbid or whatever. But I like to talk about it and I like to think about it too. And no, I don’t think I’m morbid.

I find it fascinating to imagine that one day I’ll be gone and the world will continue on. People will go about their day, going to work, falling in love, dancing, falling out of love, experiencing life. And I’ll no longer be a part of it.

And do you know why I like to imagine that? 

You might be muttering because I’m a sicko, buuuut it’s actually because it invigorates the hell out of me. It ignites my passion for life because it wakes me up to the fact that one day I’ll no longer be here, and everything else will go on just the same.

Say goodbye to self-doubt, questioning or low-confidence.

In an instant I’m fearless and I remember what I want to do and why. I remember all that is important to me and I make those phone calls to loved ones and friends that I’d been putting off. I sit and write poetry or go for a walk by the sea. I laugh louder and don’t worry about who’s looking. I become free to be me, in my most authentic form because I’ve got nothing to lose. It’s going to end up the same way anyway, so I might as well have fun with it.

But we miss out on this glorious opportunity to really see ourselves and our lives, if we amazing-art-awesome-beautiful-death-afraid-of-dying-reincarnation-what-happens-when-we-die-spirit-keep our fear of death hidden in the shadows.

Usually we’re more afraid of something because it’s been in the shadows, and we’ve never really pondered why we’re afraid. Cos really, when you look at it, how can we be afraid of ourselves dying when we won’t be around once it’s happened anyway? We’ll have passed over.

And I have a feeling the place we’re going to next is going to be a whole lot better than this one anyway, and we’ll laugh that we were all scared and afraid.

From one fearless soul to another,

Sharon

 

 

Why Are We Here?

Has the question ever crossed your mind?

It crosses my mind all the time, and I often wonder how we can go about our day as though everything normal when this question is still unanswered.

What’s the point if we don’t know what the point is?

How can we get up each day and go to work, pay the bills, be a good person and for what? I can’t think about it too hard otherwise my head hurts and I’m left feeling down.

And don’t get me wrong, I’ve thought I’ve found my purpose before, but as the years progress and hopefully so too does my wisdom, life purpose can sometimes get mixed up between something we do while we’re here that makes us feel good and helps people….

Compared with the real question; why the hell are we all here? Not individually, but collectively. I’m not talking about each person’s perceived mission, I’m talking about why billions of us are milling around picking fights with each other and pretending we’ve got it all worked out, when we actually don’t have a bloody clue.

Some people think their purpose is to have children. And I can see how they’ve reached that conclusion. I think that one is about love. We like to think we’ve experienced love but many people haven’t at all. And certainly not unconditional love. So we think having children will invite an experience of greater love into our lives – which surely will bring feelings of fulfillment and YES our life purpose!

But do we really think we’re all here to just create more of ourselves, experience some kind of love, and then just roll the question down to the next generation? That feels a little on repeat for my liking.

But the answer that I’ve stumbled upon in recent years – which so far in my journey, is the only answer which makes any bloody sense to me however mind bending it is; is that we’re not really here.

I know I know, crazy right?

But a while back I had a dream that was so vivid, I was left feeling embarrassed for myself because of it. Although I know feeling embarrassed for myself wasn’t the purpose of the dream, the real purpose I think, was enlightenment.

life purpose, what is the meaning of life, help, healing, spiritual, awakening

I was laying on my bed asleep, dreaming I was having a fight with someone. I remember feeling so angry at them, as they had been so mean to me. I felt the anger ripping right through my body and I could barely contain it as I thought about what they’d said, and how they’d treated me.

As the dream progressed (in which I wasn’t aware I was dreaming) I met up with some friends and talked to them about the mean person. They too became upset for me and agreed the person had been horrible. We joined forces and heatedly barrelled on about how nice I am and questioning, how could someone possibly be so mean to me? 

I felt justified in my anger. 

Then my perspective panned outward, like in a movie where it was zoomed in and then the camera starts moving backwards further and further. I shifted from being in the dream to looking down on myself laying asleep on the bed.

I saw myself sleeping and no doubt, still dreaming. And then, I saw tall beings all around the bed, looking down on me as I slept, in a loving and caring manner. The perspective continued to pan backward, until I caught a glimpse of the whole world.

I saw the universe and in it, I was the only one asleep. 

There were other beings but they were all awake and they were tending to me – the single, solitary sleeper. I realised that I’d been imagining all of the people in the dream scenario.

I’d made up the mean person and then persisted on being angry at them, even going as far as talking about them behind their back and I’d joined forces with other imaginary people to band together in our hate… But it was all me. Just me. I was the only one asleep, and I’d made it all up. 

And these days, that’s all I really know for sure, that there’s a possibility the same scenario is playing out here. I know our lives feel real and hurt sometimes, and even horrific things happen, but they also do in dreams too. And they feel very real until we ‘wake up’. But I tell you, I’m quite keen to wake up again and that time, let it be for real.

With love from one sleepy being,

Sharon

Repeating Numbers Guide; 222, 333 & 444

Like many of you, I’ve been seeing repeating numbers for a while now and often it’s a mixture of the same number sequences of 222, 333 and 444.

However recently I’ve started seeing 555 and even 777 which has peaked my interest to investigate further.

repeating numbers, what do repeating numbers mean, 222, 333, 444, 11:11, 111, meanings, spirit, spiritual, doreen virtue, angels, spirit guides, archangel michael

In my search I’ve come across an Angel Intuitive named Kyle Gray, who wrote an article on seeing repeating numbers, it was a fairly in depth review and as I read it the words bounced off the page like music to my ears. I’d like to relay some of the best bits for you here…

Firstly he confirms what most of us here already know, that these numbers are no coincidence and that they’re signs; a communication tool between the spirit realm and us.

Gray explains that when we see 11:11 or 111 repeating it’s our call directly from the Divine; “it’s a call from the source of creation, the depths of our soul, the angels and the universe itself to lift up our energy, raise our vibration and step into the light to become a guide, leader and teacher to the world.”

Repeating numbers 222 or 2:22:

The repeating number sequence of 222 is a sign that you are heading in the right direction, and that your recent actions and interests are part of your highest path.

It also urges us to start to realise what you really are, and to acknowledge that you are a lightworker, and that you light up a room, having a positive impact on those around you.

When you are seeing the repeating number of 222, it also means you are yet to fully realise this about yourself. It’s not arrogant to recognise you have a positive impact on others, and have the potential to spread love in this world. It’s time for you to see yourself as you really are.

In Gray’s article he urges us to question; “How are your actions, deeds, intentions and words positively affecting all those around you? Turn on that light and shine bright.” Meaning it is time to give ourselves permission to shine, and be a beacon of light and love for others.

Repeating numbers 333 or 3:33:

333 or any derivation of that is seen to be linked with ascended masters and great leaders and teachers, and Gray states that when we see these repeating numbers we are being shown that we are stepping into our true role and becoming that leader. It’s okay if you don’t feel like you are this person, you’ll keep seeing the signs until slowly the realisation occurs and you can fully accept who you are – and who you are becoming.

If you’re seeing 333 repeating then you are a leader and way-shower for others. Be bold and dig deep to the source of your courage, there will be much reward and fulfillment for you on this path.

Repeating numbers 444 or 4:44:

You’ve probably heard of Doreen Virtue, as she’s a leader and pioneer in educating people about angels and guiding them on how to invite angels into your life. If you’re seeing 444 or 4:44 then you’re probably already starting to work with angels, and these numbers are confirmation that they’re near by. They’re encouraging you to continue reaching out to them, and to find even more ways to work with them.

We can’t call on our angels enough, and they’re always nearby waiting for your call. Invite them into your life everyday, giving them permission to guide you and intervene where needed. I start everyday with an invocation to the angels, inviting them into my day in every way. I also call on them at different times during the day to help clear a room or heavy energy, or to cut cords between me and other people.

What I see in the word Trump.

donald trump, news, politics, love, trump, election, song, healingWhen I see news about Trump, what I actually see is people using him to divide themselves from other human beings – and acting as though it’s him doing it and not them.

I see people using his name to abuse other people, and to be mean, heartless and disconnected, and all the while feeling justified in the cause and effect for which they feel they have played no part.

Let us not be fools walking blindly into the trap woven ever so divinely, so as to be caught in a mirage of yet another reason to separate ourselves from each other. Do not let anyone come between yourself and another, whatever the reason and however justified you feel in doing so.

There was a line from a song I’ll never forget, because it is forever relevant it seems…

What the world needs now is love, sweet love. 

This statement couldn’t be more true, and it’s up to us to uphold. Let go of justification and righteousness for a moment and pull your brothers and sisters closer. Be sure and strong in knowing nothing will get in the way of the grander picture, the truth of reality.

Extend an arm of love to one another and toward ourselves, for it is with compassion and understanding that we stand tall, and not through ridicule – no matter how justified the reason is perceived to be.

With love,

Sharon
