The beautiful contrast in the world right now

Written by Amie on September 17, 2016 – 3:01 pm -

What is happening?

Many are wondering what is happening to our world. The world as we know it has been slowing dying for a while now. Depending on who you listen to or what you read, there are many reasons for this. I am asking you to let go of the fear based negative energy out there, and instead, go within yourself. You have all of the answers and everything you need right inside you, every moment of every day. You just have to choose to listen. If you go inside and you hear negativity, or you hear scary scenarios, these are not your inner voice, these are conditioned beliefs/thoughts. These are the voices of the fear based dysfunctional beings in our midst right now. Remind yourself that this is not you. Let go of this kind of hurtful, unhelpful noise.

This world we live in goes against our true nature; Listen to what your soul wants

Many people are depressed and full of anxiety right now because they are listening and internalizing the negativity that is grasping and clawing, trying to stay relevant. Many are depressed because they are not listening to the voice within, the truth of who we really are as humans. We are love, we are peaceful, we are one with nature and with each other. This world we live in goes against our true nature. This is why we are so depressed. Our true nature has a very difficult time being seen and heard and nurtured in this world. However, I am here to remind you that there are things you can do to change this reality. Drop the negativity from your life. Drop the people bringing you negativity. Do things for YOU, do more of the things that bring you joy and peace, no matter what anyone else thinks or feels about your choices. Find your truth! Heal your inner wounds by nurturing your soul. Listen to what your soul wants. I promise it will tell you if you choose to listen.

There is something beautiful happening

With all of that being said, I want to talk about the contrast happening in the world right now. As bad as we are told things are, (and we can see for ourselves the terrible things happening) there is something beautiful happening too. You have to change your perspective, and you have to learn self-care, self-love, self nurturing, and learn to listen to your soul’s voice. Once you begin doing these things, you will begin to see the beauty of what is really going on here.

The old paradigm

We are living in a world of contrast. We have the people who are living in the old paradigm, and clinging to it desperately, such as those who think Trump is a good person who cares about all people.(this is not going to be a political turn here)  There are those showing their true colors of being racist, hateful, and prejudice against anyone and everyone who is seemingly not like them, etc. They hide behind their claim to be good christians. (this is also not going to be a religious turn) There are those who believe they deserve better and deserve more than others. There are those who repeat negative and hateful words being spouted from horrendously hateful, manipulative, racist, narcissistic people, without using their own intelligence and inner voice to challenge this dangerous behavior.

Old paradigm creates self-hate

These are people stuck in what I call the old paradigm. The old paradigm is what creates self-hate, hate for others, hate for everything that doesn’t support negativity and dysfunction. In other words, this old way is the cause of so much suffering and pain for all. For those who do not live this way, it still affects us. This is because we have to constantly protect ourselves from this energy that goes completely against what it means to be a sacred being. We have this old paradigm happening on a grand scale, and we also have it happening on a smaller scale, such as in individual homes, relationships, schools, definitely churches, etc. All of the smaller scale “old paradigm” ways of being contribute to the larger scale dysfunction. Those who are fighting and clinging to “the old ways”, are those choosing the negative fearful ways; the dying part of our world. So, this is one side of the coin, so to speak. People are finally becoming aware of what is really happening here. Thank you to phone cameras, social media and the internet for helping us to wake up!

The attributes that make us TRULY human

The other side of the coin (the new paradigm) is beauty, peace, joy, unity, equality, connection, self-love. All of the attributes that make us who we TRULY are! I believe the people who want a world of peace, of unity, of equality, are the people who know deep down that the world we see right now, is not who we truly are as humans.  The world is showing us a beautiful contrast right now. It is painful, and it is very difficult to live in at times, but if we can focus on the outcome, which is pure beauty and love, we will get there. It is happening right now, I promise you. And we get to choose which way we want to be in this world. I can tell you this, the old way is dying. So many are depressed because who we are as humans has been overshadowed by greed, hate, injustice, violence, etc.

It is time to listen to YOUR voice

It is time to choose who you are. It is time to dig deeper. It is time to listen to YOUR voice, not those telling you what to think, how to think, when to think. Stop listening to those who say they KNOW what is right. YOU know what is right for you. If you are feeling out of balance in any way, go inside yourself. Turn off the outside voices, distractions etc. If you want to know truth, go inside yourself, learn meditation, learn to listen and honor your voice.

If you are curious about this contrast happening, if you are curious as to why we are being fed lies and hate, dig deeper. Research,(but not using mainstream news, or anything affiliated with the US government, because these sources are all based on lies to keep us under control so that only a small percentage of people thrive). Go beyond the made up history you were taught in school. You will be shocked at what you find.

Are you thriving?

If you are not thriving, there is something out of balance. Dig into it. I promise you, there is a whole “new”world waiting for you. Turn off the stuff that got you here, whether it be people, tv,news,etc. Change it up. Try a different way and see how it feels. Let go of what you thought you knew. Let go of others’ beliefs and behaviors. Take care of YOU. It is way past time! Remember, it is very difficult to give to others (in a way that honestly makes your soul happy) if you haven’t first given to yourself.

What do you need?

Some questions to ask yourself today….What do I need? What is beautiful in my life in this moment? What is my soul trying to tell me? What can I do right now to nurture myself? When is the last time I was out in nature (really in nature, not a walk in the neighborhood with cars and black top) without distractions? What message has my soul been trying to tell me but I haven’t been listening? Who brings negativity to my life? What one small thing can I do differently today that will add beauty to my life?

We are not working towards enlightenment, we are coming home to ourselves.

“You are not IN the universe, you ARE the universe, an intrinsic part of it. Ultimately you are not a person, but a focal point where the universe is becoming conscious of itself. What an amazing miracle.” ~Eckhart Tolle

 

Yes, the darkness exists

I want you to know that inside each of us is a seed that is a seed of the universe. Inside you is the whole universe in a seed. The universe is vast, it is perfection,it is pure,it is light,it is all. It is you. My favorite quote goes something like this, “you are not a drop in the ocean, you are the entire ocean in a drop.” I am telling you this because remembering this helped me remember who I really am even when I was feeling worse than horrible. When I would get those dark feelings and I could barely function, I would remind myself that the darkness was not who I am at my core, it is not my truth. Yes, the darkness exists, and it has been part of my journey, but it is not my core seed, the seed of the universe.

I promise you, there is nothing wrong with the core of who you are

We are born pure. Yes, I do believe it is possible to come here with some potential “baggage” from other lifetimes we have lived, but overall, we are born pure. What I mean is, I don’t believe we are born with darkness, I don’t believe babies are born depressed. I do believe some of us are born with a more sensitive nervous system, or are more calm, etc. I don’t want to get into that subject, but I want to acknowledge it. So, I want to assure you, the darkness you are feeling is not who you are, and you are not broken, there is nothing wrong with you. I promise you, there is nothing wrong with the core of who you are, with that beautiful seed that will exist in you forever. This can never ever be taken from you. Yes, it can be buried, it can be covered, it can even be hidden. But, it is always there, always.

how to separate unhealthy or negative experiences from their core truth (seed)

The analogy that helps me is this; we have this seed in us that is who we truly are. The seed is unique for each of us, but always contains the entire universe within the seed. Which means we have everything we need, always. No matter what happens to us in our lives, we still always have the seed. Depending on our unhealthy life experiences or traumas, the darkness grows if we are unable to separate the experience from who we truly are (the seed within). Children, most of the time, do not have the life experience or awareness to know how to separate unhealthy or negative experiences from their core truth (seed). They will most likely *feel* the truth in their body without understanding what the feeling means. Most of the time a child is unable to decipher what the feeling is telling them,unless they have someone in their life who is able to help them navigate what is going on. I think of these unexamined experiences as cement that covers the seed. Each time we have an experience that is not processed, but instead it is repressed, it is like having concrete poured over the seed.

protecting the seed

If a child grows up in a dysfunction environment, and doesn’t have at least one person helping her understand her feelings, it is more likely she will have a lot of cement surrounding the seed, thus burying her true self. (I need to point out that everyone has negative experiences, and we all can make the choice to chip away the cement in order to unbury the seed within. I point this out because this isn’t a post blaming parents.We can all make the decision to heal our wounds so that we don’t pass on the dysfunction, and so we don’t navigate the world through a lens of our own wounds)The cement also serves the purpose of protecting the seed. What I mean is that if we are consistently exposed to dysfunctional behavior, such as abuse, neglect, etc, our seed goes into protective mode. Our seed instinctively knows to protect us.So, in this way, the cement actually helps us.

Taking care of your beautiful little seed must become your priority

When the day comes that we are able to navigate the world on our own, we can begin the process of chipping away the cement. I think of a sidewalk or a road where you see a little sprout popping up through the cement. The seed is resilient. It knows exactly what to do, and it will try very hard to help you remember who you truly are. It really depends on if you are ready to hear the message that you are a beautiful seed, you are perfection, everything is exactly as it should be. The seed will grow and grow and be seen more and more as you begin taking care of yourself. Once you begin the process of loving yourself and reminding yourself that you deserve a healthy life, your little seed will cheer and cheer until the day comes when you love yourself so much, you will no longer tolerate people in your life who do not respect you and who do not cheer for your seed to grow and to be healthy. Taking care of your beautiful little seed must become your priority. If someone does not see you or hear you, they may not be deserving of your energy.

You are the universe

The cement is not you. It is the negative experiences of your life. Each time you hear a negative message in your head, remind yourself, this is not the seed, it is the cement, and it was poured there without your consent. It was used to bury your truth. Talk to yourself, remind yourself of the universe inside, the seed that contains the whole univese. You are the universe. You truly are pure love. We are not working towards enlightenment, we are coming home to ourselves. We are uncovering the beautiful seed within, the seed that shines your unique self.
