Who are you? Please come out, the world misses you

Written by Amie on December 23, 2010 – 7:32 pm -

Listen to your inner voice

I’m not sure where this message came from, but I’m thinking it came straight from my soul. I didn’t even sit down to write a post, but suddenly I knew I needed to. Please reach out to find what you need. You are so important to the world. We miss you and your presence, and your truth. Please don’t go against what your inner divine voice is saying to you. You are important, and you deserve joy and love in your life, I promise you. The love you were born with is right there waiting inside you. Look at yourself in the mirror and welcome yourself back to your life. See deep into your eyes, we are all there too, I promise you. Look someone else in the eyes. Really *see* them, and then see what you have in common with them. We are all in this together. I am here for you always, and I mean that with all of my heart. You are loved. You *are* love.

Your inner world

No more hiding who you really are, the world feels your absence. Depression is so prevalent because the external world does not match up with all of the love and truth that is contained in  our internal world. There is not something wrong with you if you can’t get your internal world to jibe with the external. It’s a really *good* thing that it doesn’t. Your internal world is right-the external world is way off balance and you are feeling it. Don’t beat yourself up for feeling *different* or depressed. Listen to that internal voice because something is way off. It is our world, not each of us individaully. We are all one, and the way to heal this crazy off balance world is to live your internal world on the outiside. Show the world your truth. Yes, you may have been taught that who you are is not right, not good, or just not enough….but that lesson was so wrong! That lesson was taught to you through someone else’s fear. They probably didn’t mean for you to learn fear, but that was all they knew.  So, guess what? It really is safe for you to come out.

We miss you

The world is missing a link….and that link is you. You were right there all along, but we were missing you because you were hiding your beauty, your magic, your truth. Please come out and show us who you are. If someone around you says they don’t like it…it is only because they are living in fear. Don’t make yourself small or invisible just to appease someone else’s fear. It is not fair to everyone else around if you hide your beauty. It may feel scary at first. That’s ok, reach out to someone who loves you. I love you! Let them know how hard it is for you to just be you. How afraid you are to show what you really need and want and believe and feel.

We are all one

You are a part of me, and I am a part of you. We are all connected. When you hurt, I hurt. So many people are hurting right now because they don’t know that everyone around them cares about them. The way to peace is to be yourself and live your truth. If everyone did this, our world would be at peace. Heal those things in you that still hurt. In order for me to be who I am, I must allow myself to feel; pain, anger, disappointment, sadness, joy, happiness, fury….every emotion.It can be hard but only because you were taught to fear emotion. That’s the reason. You were taught that feeling emotion is hard and wrong and not necesary and that you should be afraid of it. It can be tough, yes. However, you will get to the other side of it when you allow yourself to feel those crappy feelings that come up. They can’t hurt you anymore, they can only help you heal.

You are perfect

Raise your head up and walk with the power that has always been with you. It never left. Fear just got louder than love. Let love have a voice again. Make changes in your life so that love becomes the dominant role. No more judging others, because that means you are also judging yourself. You have had more than enough judgment in your lifetime. You are perfect and you always have been, this I know for absolute sure. Fear overrode and that let depression in. If you need help finding your buried self, please reach out to ask. We are all in this together even though we have been taught that we should be independant and that we should be strong and do it all ourselves. That is more fear based wrong information, I assure you. Reach out to a trustworthy friend, a therapist, find a homeopath (e-mail me if you need help with this), get a massage to nurture yourself, join a group of like-minded people, volunteer at an animal shelter. Do things that nurture YOU, your spirit, who you *really* are. We are here to experience love and joy. There will be bumps along the way, but if you allow yourself to be truthful, and to feel your truth, you can weather all of the bumps, I assure you.

Children and their emotional health

Written by Amie on November 24, 2008 – 3:46 am -

I have to write about this because it is one of the things that I feel very passionate about. I think it is a huge symptom of this unhealthy dysfunctional culture. We went to the mall the other day and it was fairly crowded. We were walking along and I heard a screaming child coming closer and closer. This always makes me feel anxious. I have a very hard time listening without trying to help the child. Finally, I saw the child. She was probably about 2 or 3, holding her Mom’s hand, screaming her little eyes out. I wanted to pick her up and rescue her. I don’t want to sound judgmental, that’s not what this is about. I do understand that people have hard days, and I don’t know the whole story. However, I did see the smirk on the mother’s face as I passed her. She gave me the look of, yeah, I know, what a pain she is being. There was another woman walking with them as well. Maybe a friend of the mother. They were chatting as if nothing was amiss.

I get so upset when I see things like this. Why couldn’t the mom find a place where she could just sit down and be there for her daughter? She could offer to hold her on her lap, she could empathize with the child, letting her know, that yes, I see you, I see how upset you are, and try to find a solution that would work for them both.  Many parents may think that because this child was young, she was just being difficult, and her “behavior” didn’t deserve respect. This is so far from the truth. What if the woman had been as upset as the little girl? What if she was at the mall and something happened and she got this upset? Would her friend have just walked along rolling her eyes and ignoring her cries for help? I seriously doubt it! I really believe that someone would offer to help.

We all need to be seen and heard. We need to know that we matter, that our needs are important to the people that love us. To be scoffed at when we are hurting does so much damage. It teaches us that our needs don’t matter, that we don’t matter, and that we shouldn’t even have needs in the first place. It is not surprising that many of us grew up thinking we didn’t matter much. We sought out attention in unhealthy ways. I am 43 years old and I still have days when my inner core of hate raises is ugly head.  It has taken a very long time for me to know that I do matter, and that it is ok to love myself. My conditioning taught me otherwise, so I fight to shut that voice down. I feel grateful for all of the healing work I have done and am still doing, that reminds me of my birthright-to love and to be loved. To love others and to love myself.

Imagine what would happen if all children were seen and heard. What a healthy start they would have. What a healthier world we would have. Imagine if children could be treated with the same respect as adults. Nobody talking down to them just because they happen to be younger, no being forced to do things against your will just because someone thinks you need to learn something from it, or because it is to meet the adult’s need, people listening to your ideas instead of rolling their eyes at you because you are a child, how could you possible know what you are talking about? What if children were trusted to know what is best for them, what if they could listen to their own bodies and eat when they are hungry, go to sleep when they are tired, do things because they enjoy them, regulate their own bodies? That is my dream for every child. They are born equal to adults, why does that have to change? Because so many adults were raised this way as well, and they haven’t chosen to begin healing themselves. When children show emotions, especailly in public, adults feel embarrassed, like people are looking at them, or that people may think it is the parents fault. Sad. I really hope that parents can start caring more about their children’s emotional health than caring about what other people think.

Sorry for the rant, but I just had to get it out there!
