Once upon a time, there was only one browser. And in that browser, only one window.
When you were finished looking at the stuff in that one window, you would click on a link to fill it with new information, and then you’d look at that.
Oh but now! An idea! Let’s research it. And while you’re reading, oh! Another idea! But you’re not finished with the first idea, so you open a new tab, and start your research over there. More ideas build up, and suddenly you find yourself with a dozen open tabs, and you can’t remember what you were researching in the first place.
During your awakening process, it’s normal to be hungry for all the knowledge you can ingest. And new technology that encourages multiple simultaneous ideas makes it especially easy for the ravenous researcher to collect information at lightning speed.
But those tabs can mess with your frequency.
Think of an inflated balloon with a stone inside of it. If you shake that balloon, the stone will bounce from one side to the other, hitting at different points across the inside of the sphere. This is similar to how an awakened mind thinks; it’s holographic rather than linear.
This is great! Unless you can’t let go of thoughts. And then, things get crowded in there.
Your online inquisitions memorialize these disjointed thoughts, each on its own tab. And if you’re like me, you don’t finish your business on the sites; so you leave them open, telling yourself you’ll go back and finish up later. If there are so many that the icons disappear, then I’m talking to you!
So what happens to your frequency when you revisit your browser and you see all of those things waiting for you?
Scanning those colorful desktop icons is like tiptoeing across a row of energetic land mines.
Each tab sits waiting…ready to explode volumes of information…all over you.
Some of it is probably uplifting. And some of it, probably not. Memories, regrets, reminders, bad news…they sit ready for you. Over and over, as you repeatedly scan that list of icons, your frequency can fluctuate wildly, based on your ideas about the content represented there.
“Oh this one, I need to do that. Oh and that one, I forgot to check out my cart. And these? I’ll get to it soon, I promise.”
This is you, unconsciously scattering your thoughts through technology.
Every time you re-introduce the energy of your browser’s contents back into your awareness, expect a new version of YOU from the absorption of it. If you are aware of something, then it is changing you. How?
You automatically process this information on a minimum of 3 levels:
Physical: You click on a tab.
Mental: You read the words and view the images.
Emotional: You store a feeling about the information you just read.
The emotional level is where the energy does its thing, and chances are you aren’t even aware that you’re registering a feeling about the contents. Yet that stuff sticks in there, if it remains unobserved.
As you awaken still further, you’ll process all of the levels consciously.
Let’s jump up one more level to hone your badass skills:
Creational: You observe what you just did. You ask why you did it. And you decide how it served you.
You can ask yourself two quick questions to process at the Creational level:
“What is the lesson here?”
“What is this information reflecting back about me?“
Remember that while you’re in the physical, everything that you see is a reflection of you in some way. You have put it there. It’s a beautiful orchestration of learning possibilities, often wrapped up in mysterious packets of information and stashed in your environment.
Real growth occurs when you determine the reason something showed up, AND you are aware of your response to it.
This fourth level of processing takes focus, but it is the whole purpose for coming to Earth: To learn, to experience, and to expand.
You will want to be efficient with your energy; this includes reducing the amount of noise going through your conscious mind. With less to process, it’s easier to maintain your frequency.
So take a look at your tabs and consider closing as many as you can.
I’m not advocating the more linear “one window at a time” theory—although it is very Zen and you may get there by choice—but rather, for the purposeful retention of energy that uplifts you.
Try consciously processing your tabs on all four levels. And don’t forget to thank yourself for taking care of your own vibration as you’re clicking on each little “X.”
Energy comes in many forms. Light. Sound. People. Dresses.
During the natural awakening process, there will be dips and spikes in your frequency. You’re clearing old blocked energy, as well as learning to be the transducer of the higher-frequencies offered to you. You’ll do some rebalancing, for sure. Some days are full of blissful peace, where it’s easy to send love to every living thing you see…and other days, it seems like you’ve developed a forked tongue poised to spit out venom at the first threat.
It doesn’t really matter what triggers these dips; for the event is just the initial spark to get you to feel something.
When you’re in a downward dip, you’ll be called upon to use your tools to rebalance your frequency.
To do this, you’ll perform whatever processes that work for you (meditation, exercise, mantras, burning candles, whatever). These are all great ways to help change your aim back into higher perception.
The other day I was in such a dip, where nothing, nothing, nothing! was going right from my point of view. I was wallowing in self-pity for sure, and to add to that, I had to do a load of laundry. In my apartment building, there are 22 people using one washer and dryer, and so there could be some competition for use of the machines.
Yet in my years here, I’ve never experienced said competition when I take my load of laundry downstairs to wash. But there COULD be! And so, my irrational laundry fears dipped me even lower than I already was.
After showering, I threw on the first thing I found in the closet. After all, I’m only going to fight someone for a washing machine, so who cares, right? I threw on a denim shift (aka a sleeveless dress with zero curves) that lay front and center in my closet; but is rarely worn. It’s got no waistline, and I look like a fish wife in it. “I’m just doing laundry,” I told myself, and so I threw it over my head and headed downstairs with my laundry basket.
As usual, there was no one else in the laundry room, and I put my clothes in for the load. Relief! I’m only doing one load, so I’m in the clear.
Yet I didn’t feel any better when I got back upstairs. “You’re clearing,” I said to myself. And when I looked in the mirror, there was a sallow me, in an ugly denim shift, reflecting back the image of a woman in clearing. Healing, yet again. Still in the dumps, AND in an unflattering dress. I tried all of my most potent tools to raise myself back up to “normal,” but still I remained in the emotional cellar.
Baby goat pictures…failed. The kitten cam. Nope. But the suffragette in the denim shift was not giving up. “I’ll tough this out.”
As I folded the warm towels, my mind wandered a bit towards appreciation of the fact that I have a washing machine at all.
“Lose the dress!”
The voice of my female Bengali guide in my right ear. She is the only one that gets through when I’m in a thick fog of pity, by literally shouting in my ear. And even then, she had to wait until I focused on something even slightly better than the sallow fishwife persona I’d been embodying all day.
Could a dress actually contribute to a frequency dip?
Of course. The dress is a choice I made, although I’m not sure why, and everything’s made of energy. It’s in my field, and energy exchange occurs with everything in your field.
Things you see, things you eat, things you wear.
Now this dress could make the next person who puts it on feel like a queen. That’s the beauty of energy. Different signatures, different results from the combination. For me? Over the head that thing went, replaced with an outfit that I felt great wearing. And my frequency shot right back up, because I liked what I saw in the mirror. More representative of the true Me.
So if there is something that you don’t prefer, then send it along, whether that be a person, a dress, or anything else in your life. You always have the choice to surround yourself with things that uplift you.
The dress is in the laundry now, ready to be washed next time I go downstairs to not fight for the washing machine. And after that? Into the donation pile to find its queen.
For each element in your routine, fire off the following questions in your head.Write down the answers! It frees up mind space:
Who are you doing it for?
Is it bringing you closer to what you want, away from what you want, or nowhere?
What do you expect to get from it?
What would happen if you didn’t do it?
Do you really want to be doing this, or do you feel like you’re supposed to?
And the grand finale:
What’s running in the background while you’re doing it?Is it excitement? Boredom? Desperation?
Sit. Feel. Observe.
This pause after asking these questions will bring you to the WHY of what you’re doing.
When you get to the WHY, you are at a conscious Point of Choice.
Do you want to keep doing this thing, or do something else? Remember that what served you before, when you were a different person, may not work for you now. After all, you no longer need to hold your mother’s hand anymore when you cross the street, do you? Some activities don’t reflect the new You that you have become.
Remember, you are a new person every moment, with every choice you make.
By recognizing what you’ve actually been choosing for yourself, and WHY, you can evaluate whether or not these repetitive actions are bringing you closer to what you want, or further away.
You may find yourself getting rid of routines that make no sense.
This will never feel like sacrifice.Rather, it will be more of a release…and hopefully with an acknowledgment of thanks for the experience, as fun (or not fun) as it was.
You are a sovereign being, and you get to choose what you think about…and how you interact with anyone or anything. Your choices form into the physical reality that you see and experience around you.Why not make all of them conscious ones? You have always had that power.
May your soul’s every wish be fulfilled. Love to you.
It’s clear that something has gone terribly wrong with men striving to be Man Enough.
We see evidence of this everywhere, and it begs the question: What can men do about it?
This article offers men a blueprint for cleansing themselves from the pressures of toxic masculinity and forging a path to self-actualization.
Choose Your Social Circle
One noteworthy step in my spiritual progression occurred when I decided to clean out my social closet. This was prompted by one simple piece of advice that came from a fellow man I met online. To paraphrase his main point:
“When you don’t want to take part in a social norm, the greatest and only power you have is to walk away. And if you’re afraid of being alone, you don’t even have that.”
When he said this, I suddenly realized how much power could be gained from overcoming my fear of being cut off or isolated from others.
From that moment on, I raised the bar for the kind of people I wanted to surround myself with, favoring inspiring books over fake friends. You can do the same.
Stop Being a Hero
As men, we desire a sense of certainty about how we understand the world and choose to navigate through it. The cliché of men not wanting to ask for directions comes from our instinct to lead others.
Programmed to view the role of “follower” as emasculating, we all grab frantically at the helm of humanity, failing to synchronize with each other or our female counterparts.
We do this because making a change and taking directions from others means admitting that we don’t have all the answers and need others to help us find our way. It also means forgiving ourselves for being imperfect.
If we truly want to be of service, we need to start by giving ourselves some slack and listening to others.
If you want to make a lasting change, it’s important that you don’t just leave this article without setting an intention. Start your transformation by putting pen to paper, writing down your own takeaways from the following points:
If you feel like people in your social circle are negative and putting pressure on you to conform, start letting them go. Letting go of them is how you will begin to let go of who you think you are.
Recognize that it’s perfectly acceptable not to know who you are or who you want to be. Not knowing is a state of emptiness that empowers you with the receptive capacity to discover and choose who you want to be.
Find your heroes and follow them. These are people you aspire to emulate and connect with. It doesn’t matter if you connect directly with them. What matters is that you listen to them. By doing this, you’re forging a relationship with those heroes and using their example as a model to live by.
It’s not hard to tell that the world is accelerating. This is the time that Lightworkers can prepare for right action in assisting others during the upcoming Shift.
Whether you call it The Event, The Upliftment, or anything else, this shift will correlate with world events that change the perspective of humanity for ever.
Be careful with the polarity, though! You’re going to see lots of evidence of Darkness, and plenty of Light too! The Lightworker’s duty is to support themselves–and therefore the population–in navigating through these changes with the anticipation of a better Earth.
This is a short trigger message designed for all Lightworkers.
Old beliefs stand in the way of realizing your full potential. Maybe it’s time to clear your path.
If you’re like me, you want to clear out EVERY negative aspect of yourself, from the ego-driven sarcastic statement deliverer, to the overly critical observer catching a glimpse of myself in the mirror. It seems like it’s a never-ending torturous path of whacking away the non-serving belief systems with our spiritual machetes. Yet some of those beliefs are rooted so deeply that we never really see the whole thing, and so it never really goes away.
A machete won’t do that. You gotta dig out the roots.
OH GREAT! More processing! More tears! More lessons to learn.
Well, yeah. That is always going to accompany a physical incarnation. That’s why we come here. Yet you could look at those beliefs in a different, more gentle way. One that gets you to the core so you can pull up that mofo, roots and all, for good.
Let’s take an old, outworn belief, and imagine it’s a prickly bush. It’s knee-high, and spiky, and you keep running into it because it’s in the path you take every day; and because your attention is elsewhere while you’re walking.
You really know that your path would be easier without smacking into those damn thorns every time you start walking, but you also know that pulling it out would require tools, and thick gloves, since your bare hands would be a bloody mess if you tried to just yank it out of the ground while passing by.
So you continuously sidestep the bush, hoping to avoid scratching yourself, and so far you’ve been managing. But sometimes, every once in a while, you forget it’s there, and you walk straight into the bush…and the painful scratches are your reminder that you really need to just pull the damn thing out.
You may imagine all the effort it would take, finding gloves, and time, and the proper frame of mind to tackle the situation. And when you encounter such obstacles, the self-bashing begins.
“I don’t have the time to pull out this bush. I’ll do it next week.”
“The roots run really deep and I may need a shovel to get way down. I don’t have a shovel.”
“Even with gloves, I might still get some scratches. I don’t want that pain right now.”
“Who the fuck planted this stupid bush in my path anyway? It’s their damn fault.”
And I don’t even have to tell you this, but bushes grow. Both upwards, further into your line of sight…and downwards, extending their roots deeper into the ground.
It doesn’t matter who planted the bush. Could have been you. Could have been someone authoritative from the past. You can spend your time cursing the bush, or blaming the bush, or hating the bush. But the bush is there. And it’s your path, and it’s your responsibility to pull the fucker out.
So how to remove the bush with the least amount of time, effort, and scrapes?
You soak the ground with water.
The moisture loosens the dirt around the bush, creating a softer surrounding environment, thus making it easier to pull the whole thing up, roots and all.
The water in this case, is neutrality.
By softening the foundation supporting the bush—or looking at the situation from a neutral standpoint, rather than one of self-judgment or blame—you facilitate the removal of the whole thing, with less effort. And then you can move on with your life with a clear trail ahead of you.
Could you get scratched? Well, sure, you could get a few scrapes, but you’ve got your gloves, and other tools that you’ve gathered over the years to address “bush” issues! A few scratches on the arms far outweigh the burden of sidestepping a growing, perpetually painful belief system that constantly inhibits your journey.
The use of neutrality is a skill that will benefit you in all areas of your life. Not just pulling out bushes, but dealing with your beliefs about people with opposing views, your beliefs about your self-worth, or your feelings about your place in society.
Allowing things to be as they are, without constantly creating a story around them, is like softening the foundation. It gives you the ability to observe these concerns without the judgment, to review your belief, and then update it to reflect the new You. In all honesty, the bush wouldn’t be prickly if it weren’t meant to be addressed in some way.
And each time you pull out a bush, you will encounter fewer and fewer of them along your path. You’ll then walk with your eyes up, rather than continuously looking down for thorns.
Learning to give is a prevalent lesson for humans in our day and time. Yet there are times when you just don’t feel like giving to anyone. And that’s OK.
Life will provide you with tons of situations in which to determine who you are. By making choices, you define yourself and gauge the magnitude of your expansion by the consequences you experience from those decisions. Although at times we can perceive life as torturous, it’s the whole reason we came to Earth.
That’s why our Higher Selves send us little tests, to see how far we’ve come in our expansion. One of the most popular situations I see lately is someone asking for money.
So are you required to hand something out to every person who asks for it because you want to pass your self test? I know that for me, living in Los Angeles, that could amount to a lot of money, since I walk nearly everywhere. As we discussed in an earlier post about the act of giving, it doesn’t matter who you are giving to, or what they will do with what you gave them.
It is the way that you handle the situation that the “larger you” is gauging. Did you handle the situation with integrity, or did you take the easy way out?
I bet you’ve done it. I know that I’ve done it:
Someone asks you for money on the street, and you tap your pockets, indicating they’re empty, and say, “Sorry, I don’t have any money.”
But you really do.
So what happened here? Society teaches us to take the easy route, escaping from uncomfortable confrontations such as these. Say whatever you have to say and get the hell out of there, right?
I get it. There are some people who will love to have even your partially-divided attention long enough to tell you all about how they can make whistles that only dogs could hear. And sometimes you truly don’t have the time to listen.
Yet telling them a lie serves no one. There are other ways to deal with such situations that maintain that positive flow of energy that Lightworkers are tasked to deliver.
Let’s try the scenario again:
You pass someone on the street who asks for a couple of bucks. He’s kind, and he’s respecting your space. You are in a hurry, though, and although you do have a couple of bucks, it’s all you have in your wallet. Honoring him as a human being of equal value, you could look into his eyes, and answer:
“Sorry, not today.”
With this three-word answer, you’ve declined his offer with full respect for him as someone in need, yet today is not the day for you to give. There’s always another day, and that leaves things in a positive tone on both sides. You have maintained your integrity, and he may have a little more faith in humanity for a kindness he probably doesn’t experience all that often.
Remember, Lightworker, you represent the Family of Light, whose purpose is to cast high-frequency energy to all around you. Maintaining that high vibration serves not only you (you manifest things faster!) but everyone else in your surroundings, which extend further than you imagine.
Here’s the secret to life in one word: Authenticity.
If you think about it, it explains our entire path from forgetful, separate individuals, to awakened master. Authenticity is being yourself, in every single situation. All the time. Not just some of the time. ALL of the time. It’s learning to love yourself, and promising to present the actual YOU to everyone that you meet.
Can you imagine that? I bet you can, and it sends up some scary little chills up your spine. You mean, “Talk about all the things I see out of the corner of my eye to anyone who will listen?”
Being yourself does not mean that you ignore all social protocol and engage in rebellious behavior just because you can.
Being yourself means knowing all of your abilities; recognizing the areas that need work; and acknowledging your fears. It’s about transparency, and knowing and loving yourself so well that you must present that authentic YOU to the world; otherwise, life is pointless because you’re living someone else’s life.
It’s about moving from the separated, powerless individual that you were told you were, to the powerful creator of your own reality.
Have you ever asked yourself who you really are?
Here’s a way to get both your left brain and your right brain engaged in answering that question. You can make a “ME” map that defines the current “you” based on your beliefs about yourself.
It’s really just a bubble map, which is very popular among writers and poets to grab thoughts, words, concepts and abstracts about any subject matter. It’s done quickly, without mental analysis.
Start with a blank piece of paper and write “ME” in the middle. You can circle it, or square it, or triangle it, if you want.
Now stare at that “ME” in the center, and start jotting down the first words that come into your mind. Don’t question the connection between “ME” and whatever you wrote down; the right brain thinks in concepts and if it’s coming out on paper, there is a connection somewhere in there.
You may see colors, or numbers, or images. Write them down. No judgments. Just blurt it out, write it down, connecting with lines if you so desire. Even the lines between entries may have a hidden connection that will reveal itself after you’ve finished.
Fill up the whole paper, dammit. You are a complex human that’s lived multiple lives in a bunch of bodies. There is more to you than your human mind can think in a linear fashion. Our aim here is to find those pesky hidden connections that are part of your self-belief system. Write until there is no more room.
Then you can color it in, if you’re like me and you need to add some flair.
So what did you find? Are there some surprises in there?
Did you cheat and think about every word before you wrote it down?
If your writing is picture-perfect on that map, you cheated. Your interloping mind got in the middle and not only dissected the word and its connection, but you also threw in some self-judgment about what others may think if they see your messy map. Throw it out and try again.
Do you see how much you can learn from a simple exercise?
Save your maps, and do new ones from time to time, because every day you are expanding into a creative master. The entries will change, so it will be fun to compare past and new maps as you evolve in this lifetime.
No judgment required! Instead, try appreciation for yourself. You are a badass for being willing to go inside to assess your inner landscape.
Here’s one of my “ME” maps, in case you want to see how messy my writing is:
