I am a Healer, Psychologist, educator and Sound Therapist with an avid interest in consciousness and transpersonal experiences. Oh and did I mention Astrology?
If you know someone who works for a bank then please don't post anything detrimental to the banking world on their Facebook page! I did this during the week following the Bob Diamond resignation and further revelations. I was told that the person I'd posted this to had to report to their head office explaining that this had been posted and had not been requested or instigated by themself. Had they not reported this, then a disciplinary could well have been the order of the day.
I find it shocking that employers spy on their employees' internet interactions - and obviously have a way of accessing everything quite freely. I have heard of this before as there were reports of people loosing their jobs over pictures of drunken nights out posted on Facebook in the past.
What is more damaging however is the pernicious effect of the spying by Big Brother which not only strongly smells of mind control but is a very harmful and despicable form of limiting freedom of expression and thought. In these times when people are already anxious about their financial situation they are then threatened if they share their thoughts or opinions even on private pages over the internet. This is commonly known as blackmail!!
The fact that this has come to light for me because of the banking scandal only leads me to conclude that my dabbling in conspiracy theories may have given me a much more solid foundation for understanding what lies beneath, rather than following the mainstream propaganda that is churned out day after day, hour after hour by people who are severely constrained by their employers as to what they can say and indeed how they say it!
At the Nuremburg trials of Nazi criminals following WWII, the defendents said "I was only doing my job" or "I was only following orders". I ask whether this is to become the excuse again albeit in different circumstances. Toe the line as its safer. It's all smoke and mirrors and we shall never know the truth but at least have the courage to stand in your own truth and question everything!!!
Its funny how everything reflects everything else. Although we feel that we can hide our feelings and motives, when someone can read our energy we become totally opaque. Anyone who can read auras should do this in an ethical way and ask permission before using any information they pick up.
In a similar way a friend visiting yesterday has knowledge of Feng Shui and asked me if I liked doing laundry. Well, no I don't and with two daughters I have had more than my fair share! She laughed and asked why on earth I therefore kept two clothes horses (note the plural!!) and a bag of clothes pegs in the abundance corner of my house! Today I shall be moving them and clearing up the area in readiness to place objects and items which reflect what I would like to have in abundance in my life - if I don't then the alternative is to set up a Chinese Laundry!!
Without knowledge of how energies follow certain patterns we are ignorant of what we invite into our lives. This is where I find the study of astrology so useful. I am not talking about newspaper horoscopes which bear no resemblance to a professional chart reading. Gaining greater insight into our own motives and unconscious trigger points opens a wonderful window on how our life is panning out and why it may be so. It also offers the opportunity to change those 'broken records' that play silently but almost incessantly inside us.
Yesterday I mentioned that we all have an invisible bungy jump rope attached which comes into its own when we take a leap of faith. What actually did I mean by this?
In energetic terms when the soul incarnates into body it remains attached to 'source' by a silver thread. This is the life-line in a sense. It is through this that our intuition and 'memories' of past lives as well as access to Akashic records and libraries of collective knowledge can be activated. Jung believed in a collective consciousness and supra-consciousness, realms from whence other forms of 'knowing' can be 'downloaded'. Many psychics use this energetic field to gain insight into imprints of past and future events.
The silver thread itself however is also very personal. Each of us has one. Coming into the physical dimension is in a sense a bungy jump from the higher dimensions to this lower vibration which sustains form and substance. This is the greatest leap of faith any of us shall ever make. During episodes of astral travelling, unconscious travel in a dreamstate or out of body experiences, it is the silver thread which maintains the link to the physical. Whilst it is in place you will always return. At the end of our lives however, it wears very thin and eventually dissolves. This has been observed by many people visiting the dying. It is the cord which binds us both to mortality and to eternal life guiding us back home.
I went down to the lake yesterday in the hope of taking out a boat and sailing for a while. The wind however was so strong that I really hadn't a chance of staying upright. I am a beginner and acknowledged this. I dont want to loose my confidence through bravado and stupidity. It then became an easy decision sit by the shore and watch. I spent a while there as a couple of experts were negotiating their way around the waters, reading the wind and making snap decisions based on experience. I learnt a great deal from my observations.
This made me think about decisions we have to take in life. Often we go ahead with a sense of bravado because there is someone to impress - that person is often our own self! Alternatively we end up doing stupid things on the strength of a decision made to please someone else. Its all very well learning from mistakes but how many do we have to make before we actually sit up and take note? It's always good to review situations as long as that doesn't involve beating ourselves up over what went 'wrong'.
There are however also situations where courage and a leap fo faith is needed. These present in very different ways and usually involve a strong sense of 'knowingness'. It is as if fate has conspired to bring us to a point where we just know that to do nothing would be wrong and yet to act is to face our fears. This is a sure and certain way to break free from old habit patterns and to risk embracing the new. It does take courage and a leap of faith but the invisible bungy rope is there when we follow our strong intuitions and dive off the illusionary precipice.
It may take hours of meditation or deliberating before we act but once that leap is taken the world shifts in our favour and new horizons open up to us. Opportunities arise of which we had only previously dreamed. If we resist then the pressure increases and can become unbearable. However, when we celebrate the changes, the pace slows becoming manageable, the path opens up to us and we gain a strong foothold.
