Empowering Yourself

With a deep breath in and in slow release let your body fall into calm surrender. Empowering yourself begins with being in a receptive mode. Being receptive to learning all you can about yourself. When you are in calm surrender you are able to recognize what you struggle with and what you need to change in order to move forward. One of the things you may need to change is your attachments. Attachments can be emotional bonds that connect us to other people, they can also be our style of connecting with others ( secure, avoidant, anxious or disorganized ) or anything we cling to, to help us identify who we are, what we do or how we enjoy doing things in specific ways. Even our belief systems or worldviews are a part of our attachments.

Part of learning to empower yourself is learning who and what you are attached to. This exercise will help you:

  1. Write a list of the people and things you feel attached to.
  2. Review this list acknowledging what or who causes you tension, anxiety or emotional harm.
  3. Acknowledge what is working for you or in your favour on this list.
  4. Now consider what your life would look like if you were not attached to any of the things causing tension.

Self empowerment comes with recognizing that you don’t really need those attachments that cause you tension or anxiety. All you need is to be yourself fully, openly and honestly. Be true to you!

Chances are your attachments are related to the idea that you are not enough by yourself. So let go and let more of who you are come forth.

You are a creator, You are all that is, You are everything you need!

Don’t let Drama turn to Trauma

If I were to tell you it may take 2-10 years to work through the chaos resulting from this pandemic, how would that make you feel? Would it cause fear or anger and if so where in your body would you feel it? We hold emotions within our body and where it hurts is directly related to a held emotion.

Our 7 chakra’s are connected to different organs, systems and cells. There is a connection between what we think and how we feel. Clearing and stabilizing your 7 chakra’s helps to strengthen and heal you.

The truth is the human population is a highly traumatized population and trauma sometimes comes down through generations and reincarnations. As we awaken we will be faced with truths that we may not even want to hear. Truths that have been covered and hidden from us. Truths that may reveal the evil, fraud, control, slavery and abuse from the highest people within our Governments, religious, financial, entertainment, and educational systems. Abuses towards women, men and children, we never thought possible. Remember it is better to know the truth and move forward then to look the other way.

WE, humanity, are in a huge collective healing right now and your contribution begins with taking responsibility for your own healing. By doing the work and stabilizing yourself you will be able to stand firm through the trauma and not get caught up in all the drama.

We do the work by:

A. Raising our vibrations – refer to my prior article for 10 ways to raise your vibrations.

B. Standing in your own Autonomy & Sovereignty – when faced with family or friends who may want you to agree with their perspectives or they will feel rejected, stand firm. You may have to agree to disagree with others dis-information and stand firm in what YOU believe. Love them anyway but commit to your beliefs and live by them.

C. Develop a higher mindset – Even though we may not know what the future holds, that’s OK . Live your life knowing what kind of world you do want to live in and pray for that to manifest on earth. Resist anything that does not resonate with you, and let it go lovingly, knowing sometimes we need to see the dark shadow side to know where the light is coming from.

D. Let go of external authorities – Be your own sovereign self. Use your sense of discernment wisely. Rebuild your internal supports like prayer, meditation, or connecting to the higher spiritual realms. Don’t think too much about what others say about you, be careful who you give your power to. You are a great soul on the journey of a lifetime, so don’t resist your own evolution you are here to learn!

E.Another way to contribute to your own healing while helping the collective heal is to learn how to stabilize yourself.

-don’t get caught up in the drama if you see or hear something that bothers you. Try to bring yourself into a neutral state.

-we achieve neutrality by grounding ourselves to the earth and connecting to the zero point energy field within us.

-your zero point is located in your heart chakra

-it is the centre of your being where only love exists (being love & self love)

-hold steady to this calm

When the drama rises, alleviate any negative physical symptoms, stabilize yourself and continue to work on your healing so the drama doesn’t turn to trauma.

The Awakening (Part 2)

To awaken is to know, that what we think, has a profound effect inside and around us. Raising our vibrations is a way to offset stronger emotional and physical reactions that may rise from our chaotic world.

Raising your vibration can be as simple as being mindful of your thoughts and intentions and choosing to be a person of compassion and love. Moving out of lower vibrations of anxiety, depression, negative thought patterns or limited belief systems, starts with owning your own energy. Only you can change the way you feel. You may not be able to change the situation but you can change your reactions or emotions associated with a situation. By doing this one step, you will draw yourself into balance allowing the frequency of peace and bliss to flow.

10 Ways to Raise Your Vibrations

“Through silence, through meditation

The Law of Potentiality”

Deepak Chopra

What is a spiritual awakening?

No one person can fully define a spiritual awakening because it is different for everyone, although there are commonalities that occur.

It starts when you realize there is a dimension of yourself beyond your ego or personality. It is the moment you allow your higher self or spirit to guide you. The spiritual awakening is a lifelong journey.

To awaken is to know yourself fully. The real you. The one created, perfect, whole who is loving and divine. Knowing you are a being of love is to trust that love is creative. Trust is an essential aspect of your spiritual journey. To awaken is to learn you are energy. A unified field of mind, body, spirit energy vibrating.

You are living in an ocean of energy that scientists are proving are governed by the law of vibration. Our thoughts can alter the properties of things around us. Dr. Masaru Emoto’s book “The hidden messages in water” explain that human consciousness has an effect on the molecular structure of water. You are 70-80% water. When you were born you were 99% as a fetus, 90% as a baby and it decreases as we age. Water serves as the transporter of energy throughout your body.

If vibrations of frequencies like music and emotions have the power to change the structure of water, how powerful are our thoughts? What we think can have profound effects inside and around us.

To awaken is to know, (not believe which implies hope which implies doubt) there is a divine unseen, energetic field of love that surrounds you. The intensity of awakening varies from quiet, calm periods to chaotic intense periods of change. It is important to honour this ebb and flow of transformation.

To awaken is to know everything else is an illusion to keep you in fear.

Do not fear!

“The Universe does not hear what your saying,

it feels the vibration you are offering”

Abraham Hicks

Reality Check

 

I send thoughts of loving compassion to all on earth as we traverse through these difficult times.

For those of you who do not know me, I am retired and my husband is a Paramedic with Windsor/Essex EMS service here in Ontario, Canada.

This is how my husband now has to work in order to protect himself from the Covid 19 virus pandemic. Please keep all health care workers in your prayers and follow all health Guidelines within your country.

Today I write for him! I love him and I want him to know I have his back. I too will practice social distance from all of our family ( 4 children & 6 grandchildren ) and our friends, too many to mention! I will have the washing machine ready for his arrival and a new set of clothes for him after he showers. I will prepare him a healthy dinner and remind him to take his vitamins. Mostly all day I will send him loving thoughts to protect him as he cares for all of his patients. Each day I know God has him in his care and I trust that!

As we teeter on the edge of yet another life event, I’m hoping that soon we will be able to retire to that piece of land up north on an inland lake and grow our own food, fish, swim and watch the stary night sky as we dream of spending the summers with our children and grandchildren.

Please feel free to leave comments of encouragement.

Sincerely, Jacqueline
