Response on The Daily Love: http://thedailylove.com/contraction-or-expansion-what-kind-of-year-will-it-be-for-you/

Thank you so much! I have been trying to understand these seasons all my life. In my case, they are very extreme and are not just felt in situations, but also hit me hard physically. Thanks to what you pointed out, I am now looking back and seeing that I do maintain strength throughout each time, but, the strengths change according to the expansion and contraction - whereas before, I felt weak during the contraction, I now see I did have an ability to store, stow and learn during those times - and I also see that that has saved me and made the best use of the contracted time. It's unfortunate that general outlook, appetite, and the seize of the ego have to also be a part of the contracted time for me but I also know those are things I can bust through. If you do have more tips on how to make the best use of the contracted time and maybe even routine maintenance examples from your own life, I'm sure we would all like to hear them! :)

In response to: Contraction Or Expansion? What kind of year will it be for you?

Water crystals and Masaru Emoto - a lovely notion.

Who knows, right? Still a lovely notion. I'm just going to make the decision to believe.

I know in my own life, in my body, I am highly responsive to energy.

Not that I don't also shape energy myself - I know that I do - I know I'm equally accountable to shaping the entire situation of things as much as everyone else.

I guess what I mean is, I know that what we think and feel has a powerful effect on whatever happens, not just immediately around us, but everywhere else as well.

Let's all take a moment today to give our entire focus to an inspiring concept or even a word that we will bask in until we get that little twinge of belief starting to form, then let's take the next week to look at our lives and see that concept or word coming through!

Becoming Don Juan over Cyrano.

Didn't you know - Cyrano is the alter ego of Don Juan? Don't wait in the wings. Seduce! Own yourself. Claim your life. Kick your game.

Where is karma?

In general I believe in karma as life's self-correcting tendency that I've experienced firsthand. But where is karma stored in the universe?

A prayer for light to enter into my doings.

Dear Universe, keep me in the light. Let light, love, and grace enter into every situation, along with wisdom that gives all doings an ease. Unblock me, and clear my mind of worry.

I know that at times, I've blocked that light.

Undo those past errors by letting the potential for great and tremendous goodness to rise in my life beginning now, let no past nor future feel stronger than the strength of this moment and its capacity to be changed by my heart and soul, and by everyone whose hearts are open and minds are willing to be cleared of grievance.

Give me new beginnings every second the hand on the clock advances forward. Thank you for always providing for me.

But what if we are energy sensitive?

"The great spiritual teacher Jiddu Krishnamurti was once asked the key to his happiness, to which he said, 'I don’t mind how it goes.' "

I am trying to get there! What I think doesn't always get mentioned is how to be anchored in the true Love of the world when some of us are highly empathic or energy sensitive and get swept away by the dramas of others! I know the response would be: be centered in the same inner strength and serenity that would benefit us all, but, what if someone's pain and confusion is not "outside" to us, but for some of us has a direct umbilical cord to our soul? How do I not get swept away by the emotions around me when I can feel it as palpably as electrically-charged nausea that I somehow feel invested to play a part in probing or catheterizing?

I can paint.

YES van Gogh! Knew I could count on you for an uplift! "If you hear a voice within you say "you cannot paint", then by all means paint and that voice will be silenced." - Vincent van Gogh For me, this absolutely does apply painting. But, it also applies to spiritual practice!
