Are You Feeling Lost, Alone or Disconnected?

It has to be said: we are in the midst of some dark, challenging times.

With all the civil unrest around us, it may seem near impossible to find any kind of balance as an Empath. It certainly appears that dark energies are on the increase, which is causing bedlam among the Sensitive of the world. And all the political and religious dogma being spouted in the media is certainly not helping matters.

When I started my junior hairdressing apprenticeship, we were given certain rules of what not to discuss with clients. The first rule was to hang up our problems with our coats in the morning. The second was to avoid, at all costs, discussions about politics or religion. We were told these two subjects were the worst for igniting angry disputes. At sixteen years old I didn’t think much of it, but now I see just how pertinent it was.

If there are two things that create heated disagreements, conflict, division and hatred it is political opinions and religious beliefs. This is so clear in what we are seeing in all corners of the globe.

Between terrorism, politics and religious or race divisions there seems to be little else in the media (other than reality TV personalities). With another election being called in the UK, it appears the media fuelled political disputes will be never-ending.

There is so much hate being bred, both in the media and out on the streets, that even if you lived far underground it would be difficult to avoid the dismal energy being produced.

People are so affected by the dramas being played out that they don’t see the real intentions behind them. Much of which are ploys to keep us divided, distracted and angry. People are being played off against each other and all it is doing is causing a blanket of massively contagious, dark, dark energy.

As I mentioned in my last post: negativity generates negativity. Negative emotions are contagious and are subliminally taken on even by those who aren’t Sensitive. People get swept along by the irrational, infectious moods being intentionally perpetuated. They breed and feed. Getting caught up in the political/religious doctrines, and the whirlwind of propaganda that goes with it, is all part of the plan designed to keep people from unity. It is just another form of gaslighting.

Because the populace is continuously fed more reasons to become fearful, infuriated or dissatisfied, and very little to feel positive and cheerful about, low-level energy continues to escalate.

Even if you are able to stay detached from the propaganda being generated, you will not be immune to the murky oppressive energy it stirs up. This energy seeps into your energy field even whilst you sleep. And because it is so all encompassing it is difficult to stay detached from.

This low-level energy may show up as periods of lethargy and chronic fatigue, depression, brain fog and an absolute sense of disconnection from life, as well as loneliness. Many are feeling completely lost. Again, this isn’t just affecting the Sensitive, I am seeing/feeling it in many people.

I have already written about this subject in recent months. But as it is a continuing theme I feel it is right to discuss it again, because the impact it has on an Empath is not pleasant. Picking up on dark energy coming from the masses, is nothing short of exhausting. It is difficult to hide from even with the best intentions.

My belief is that everything is being magnified as a ruse to keep us from finding oneness, truth and self-empowerment. If we are kept distracted from our true power we cannot harness it and find the peace, happiness and balance we are meant for. It is so important, during these dark periods, that we stay on top of our game.

We are being targeted mind, body and spirit and it isn’t just by political distractions and gaslighting. The food we eat, the air we breathe and the substances we are subjected to are nothing short of toxic. All of which acts as endocrine disrupters which in turn messes with our chakras and energy bodies. We have to continuously work to evolve and adapt by making changes, it would seem, on a near-weekly basis.

Part of overcoming the low vibrational energy being contagiously projected into the world is to keep mind, body and spirit strong. Eat good food, exercise, stay grounded and keep clearing your energy field. Your diet is so important now. It has more impact on your mental health, and how you show up in the world, than you may know.

Also, if ever there was ever a time to keep your mind empowered now is it. And a good way to do it, other than meditation, good food and exercise, is by focusing on all your strengths. Look to find your hidden super powers and stay focused on them. For example: focus on your kindness, consideration or creativity. Don’t be tempted to indulge in negativity, wherever it is coming from. Just keep swimming in the potential of your innate gifts, how to develop them and how lucky you are to have these unique talents.

What we focus our attention on grows. When we embrace our inner power, that power will grow. We then project out this positive vibrant energy, which in turn helps neutralize the bad stuff.

What is also important to remember during these fractious periods is you are not alone. There are many others experiencing similar moods, energy levels, loneliness and disconnection. If you feel lost, confused, fatigued or angry, whilst voyaging these turbulent times, just remember how many others are also living through it and coming through the other side. You may feel lonely but you are not alone.

Hope this helps on your Empath journey.

Until next time…

7 Steps to Help Develop Empath Intuition

Having strong intuition you can trust is a huge help when navigating the turbulent journey of Empath life!

Luckily, those who are Sensitive are born with a strong sense of intuition. It is an intuition they can continue to build over the course of their lives.

Being able to follow your intuition, and trust its promptings, not only guides you towards the life you may dream to live but also helps when discerning the emotional energy belonging to others.

Too often many Empaths wrongly interpret emotional energy, often claiming others emotions as their own. By developing a strong sense of intuition it helps to prevent this from happening. And here we will take a look at the best ways to do it:

1. Practice meditation daily.  If only for a short time. Five minutes a day is better than no minutes. Stilling the mind, through meditation, is one of the best ways to develop intuition. It is not an overnight process. Some have to work harder than others. It is in meditation you receive the answers to the questions, you may have asked. These answers come through messages and visions.

2. Know your visions are real. The visions you see in meditation are real and have significant meaning… you just need to decipher them.  Many of your messages come through symbolism or code and are unique to each one of us. Learning to decode them is essential to understanding them. For example: one person may see a red rose in their mind’s eye and interpret it as message of love; another may see the same but interpret the thorns and color red as a sign of danger. Your visions and messages are exclusive to you and that is why it is important to recognize their meanings and believe in them. Continue reading

What Mayan Elders Are Saying About 2012 – Carlos Barrios

An interesting article I came across on www.shiftfrequency.com and a must read.

Disclosure 2012 .

”We are living in the most important era of the Mayan calendars and prophecies. All the prophecies of the world, all the traditions are converging now. There is no time for games.”

Carlos Barrios, Mayan elder and Ajq’ij is a ceremonial priest and spiritual guide of the Eagle Clan. Carlos initiated an investigation into the different Mayan calendars circulating. Carlos along with his brother Gerardo studied with many teachers and interviewed nearly 600 traditional Mayan elders to widen their scope of knowledge.

Carlos found out quickly there were several conflicting interpretations of Mayan hieroglyphs, petroglyphs, Sacred Books of ‘Chilam Balam’ and various ancient text. Carlos found some strong words for those who may have contributed to the confusion:

Carlos Barrios: “Anthropologists visit the temple sites and read the inscriptions and make up stories about the Maya, but they do not read the signs correctly. It’s just their imagination. Other people write about prophecy in the name of the Maya. They say that the world will end in December 2012. The Mayan elders are angry with this. The world will not end. It will be transformed.”

“We are no longer in the World of the Fourth Sun, but we are not yet in the World of the Fifth Sun. This is the time in-between, the time of transition. As we pass through transition there is a colossal, global convergence of environmental destruction, social chaos, war, and ongoing Earth Changes.”

He continues: “Humanity will continue, but in a different way. Material structures will change. From this we will have the opportunity to be more human. We are living in the most important era of the Mayan calendars and prophecies. All the prophecies of the world, all the traditions are converging now. There is no time for games. The spiritual ideal of this era is action.”

Carlos tells us: “The indigenous have the calendars and know how to accurately interpret it — not others. The Mayan Calendars comprehension of time, seasons, and cycles has proven itself to be vast and sophisticated. The Maya understand 17 different calendars such as the Tzolk’in or Cholq’ij, some of them charting time accurately over a span of more than ten million years.

“All was predicted by the mathematical cycles of the Mayan calendars. — It will change –everything will change. Mayan Day-keepers view the Dec. 21, 2012 date as a rebirth, the start of the World of the Fifth Sun. It will be the start of a new era resulting from and signified by the solar meridian crossing the galactic equator and the Earth aligning itself with the center of the galaxy.”

At sunrise on December 21, 2012 for the first time in 26,000 years the Sun rises to conjunct the intersection of the Milky Way and the plane of the ecliptic. This cosmic cross is considered to be an embodiment of the Sacred Tree, The Tree of Life, a tree remembered in all the world’s spiritual traditions.

Some observers say this alignment with the heart of the galaxy in 2012 will open a channel for cosmic energy to flow through the Earth, cleansing it and all that dwells upon it, raising all to a higher level of vibration. Carlos reminds us: “This process has already begun. Change is accelerating now and it will continue to accelerate.

If the people of the Earth can get to this 2012 date in good shape without having destroyed too much of the Earth, we will rise to a new, higher level. But to get there we must transform enormously powerful forces that seek to block the way.”

The date specified in the calendar Winter Solstice in the year 2012 does not mark the end of the world. Many outside people writing about the Mayan calendar sensationalize this date, but they do not know. The ones who know are the indigenous elders who are entrusted with keeping the tradition.

Carlos tells us: “The economy now is a fiction. The first five-year stretch of transition from August 1987 to August 1992 was the beginning of the destruction of the material world. We have progressed ten years deeper into the transition phase by now, and many of the so-called sources of financial stability are in fact hollow. The banks are weak. This is a delicate moment for them. They could crash globally, if we don’t pay attention. Now, people are paying attention.”

The North and South Poles are both breaking up. The level of the water in the oceans is going to rise. But at the same time land in the ocean, especially near Cuba, is also going to rise. Carlos tells a story about the most recent Mayan New Year ceremonies in Guatemala. He said that one respected Mam elder, who lives all year in a solitary mountain cave, journeyed to Chichicastenango to speak with the people at the ceremony. The elder delivered a simple, direct message. He called for human beings to come together in support of life and light.

“Right now each person and group is going his or her own way. The elder of the mountains said there is hope if the people of the light can come together and unite in some way. We live in a world of polarity — day and night, man and woman, positive and negative. Light and darkness need each other. They are a balance.”

“Just now the dark side is very strong, and very clear about what they want. They have their vision and their priorities clearly held, and also their hierarchy. They are working in many ways so that we will be unable to connect with the spiral Fifth World in 2012.”

“On the light side everyone thinks they are the most important, that their own understandings, or their group’s understandings, are the key. There’s a diversity of cultures and opinions, so there is competition, diffusion, and no single focus.”

Carlos believes the dark side works to block unity through denial and materialism. It also works to destroy those who are working with the light to get the Earth to a higher level. They like the energy of the old, declining Fourth World, the materialism. They do not want it to change. They do not want unity. They want to stay at this level, and are afraid of the next level.

The dark power of the declining Fourth World cannot be destroyed or overpowered. It’s too strong and clear for that, and that is the wrong strategy. The dark can only be transformed when confronted with simplicity and open-heartedness. This is what leads to unity, a key concept for the World of the Fifth Sun.

Carlos said the emerging era of the Fifth Sun will call attention to a much-overlooked element. Whereas the four traditional elements of Earth, Air, Fire and Water have dominated various epochs in the past, there will be a fifth element to reckon with in the time of the Fifth Sun — that element is ‘ETHER’.

The dictionary defines Ether as a “hypothetical substance supposed to occupy all space, postulated to account for the propagation of electromagnetic radiation through space.” Perhaps it could be defined as the “space between space”. I would suggest it could be manifest as the alignment of charged particles from our solar system (Sun), and our galaxy (Milky Way) surge. The Ether element represents spiritual energy

“The element of the Fifth Sun is celestial. Within the context of Ether there can be a joining of the polarities. No more darkness or light in the people, but an uplifted unity. But right now the realm of darkness is not interested in this. They are organized to block it. They seek to unbalance the Earth and its environment so we will be unready for the alignment in 2012.”

“We need to work together for peace, and balance with the other side. We need to take care of the Earth that feeds and shelters us. We need to put our entire mind and heart into pursuing unity and unity now, to confront the other side and preserve life.”

“We are disturbed — we can’t play anymore. Our planet can be renewed or ravaged. Now is the time to awaken and take action. Everyone is needed. You are not here for no reason. Everyone who is here now has an important purpose. This is a hard but a special time. We have the opportunity for growth, but we must be ready for this moment in history.”

Carlos says: “The prophesied changes are going to happen, but our attitude and actions determine how harsh or mild they are. We need to act, to make changes, and to elect people to represent us who understand and who will take political action to respect the Earth.”

“Meditation and spiritual practice are good, but also action. It’s very important to be clear about who you are, and also about your relation to the Earth. Develop yourself according to your own tradition and the call of your heart. But remember to respect differences, and strive for unity. Eat wisely — a lot of food is corrupt in either subtle or gross ways. Pay attention to what you are taking into your body. Learn to preserve food, and to conserve energy. Learn some good breathing techniques, so you have mastery of your breath. Be clear. Follow a tradition with great roots. It is not important what tradition, your heart will tell you, but it must have great roots.”

“We live in a world of energy. An important task at this time is to learn to sense or see the energy of everyone and everything — people, plants, animals. This becomes increasingly important as we draw close to the World of the Fifth Sun, for it is associated with the element ‘ether’ — the realm where energy lives and weaves. Go to the sacred places of the Earth to pray for peace, and have respect for the Earth which gives us our food, clothing, and shelter. We need to reactivate the energy of these sacred places. That is our work.”

“One simple but effective prayer technique is to light white or baby-blue colored candles. Think of a moment in peace. Speak your intention to the flame and send the light of it on to the leaders who have the power to make war or peace.”

Carlos reminds us this is a crucially important moment for humanity and for Earth. Each person is important.

He said the elders have opened the doors so that other races can come to the Mayan world to receive the tradition. “The Maya have long appreciated and respected that there are other colors, other races, and other spiritual systems. They know that the destiny of the Mayan world is related to the destiny of the whole world.”

“The greatest wisdom is in simplicity. Love, respect, tolerance, sharing, gratitude, forgiveness. It’s not complex or elaborate. The real knowledge is free. It’s encoded in your DNA. All you need is within you. Great teachers have said that from the beginning. Find your heart, and you will find your way.”

21 DAY MEDITATION CHALLENGE FROM THE CHOPRA CENTRE

If you have never meditated and would like to try, then here’s your chance. The Chopra centre is offering a free 21 day meditating challenge. This is an excellent way to commit 21 days of your life to see how meditating could change you and your life.

The hardest part of meditating can be simply setting a time aside for it. So, find a time that suits you best, perhaps first thing in the morning or just before bed. Find a quiet, comfortable space in your home, where it’s not too hot or cold and before you start make sure there will be no unwanted distractions, such as a phone ringing, a child asking for you, a rumbling stomach from hunger, or likewise, an overly full, digesting tummy. Others will say different, but I find it best to meditate sat up, with the spine erect (a slumped chest affects the breathing), when lying down it is too easy to fall asleep and although sleep is very beneficial, we’re trying to still and quieten our mind and it can take some effort to do. The mind is like a monkey and when you try to still it it will start to jump from one thought to the next trying to distract you. With patience and persistence you will eventually get to train and quieten the monkey but if you fall asleep before you have had chance then you will miss that opportunity.

The challenge begins on Monday, July 16, 2012. (All meditations are available for 7 days after they are originally posted, so you could start your challenge up to the 22nd July). The Free to Love 21-Day Meditation Challenge will feature all new guided meditations led by Deepak Chopra and other gifted teachers from the Chopra Center family.  The aim is to explore the subject of love and discover freedom from the past, experience profound healing and begin to live from a state of  unbounded love for life, ourselves, and the world.

11th November 2011

RuskaOoh, when I woke this morning the energies felt very special. The best way I can describe them is how I used to feel when I was a little girl and I would wake up on my birthday morning, knowing I had a magical day ahead. I’m sure most would remember how that felt. Also I’ve got more energy than usual (which is saying a lot for me as I’ve never been a morning person, energetically). And joyful, I feel more joyful, lighter and blissful… I just hope this is a keeper!

I wasn’t planning on doing a post today, thought I’d leave it till tomorrow, but I think I’ll do updates throughout the day to see what unfolds.

It is my intention to do a meditation at 11am, as I’m sure is the intention of many others around the globe. I will update after that. But for now it’s time for my morning yoga practice. (My meditation was blissful although nothing more notable than that.)

Well, it’s now 8 hours later and it has to be said, this day has certainly been different energetically. I’ve had déjà vu but not in the sense of remembering a scene or situation, more emotionally. At certain times today I’ve had overwhelming feelings that took me back to childhood. Good feelings of excitement and newness. Let’s hope this is due to the new, positive energies that have poured into the planet since last night. It’s not been continuous, the feelings or emotions have come in waves.

Whilst out walking earlier I noticed the vibrant, autumn colours seemed so much brighter than normal. The shades, varying from dark, golden sand to russet red and the trees, that were teaming with colourful winter berries and fruits was a contrast of which I’m not sure I’ve ever seen before. Nature at her finest.

And is it me or have people seemed happier today? We’ve certainly got a reason to be happy, if these feel-good frequencies are anything to go by… But then, I guess only time will tell. Anyone whose been on the ascension roller-coaster with me will be familiar with the constant, unpredictable ups and downs. How we think we’ve shifted up a gear and finally put all the crap behind us, only to find out we were wrong. But hey, isn’t there a saying that ‘without the bad the good aint so good’? Well, it’s true!

To all of you empaths, star-seeds, indigo’s and light-workers out there, may 11/11/11 be the day we finally free ourselves from our restraints and step into the new, wonderful world that’s been waiting for us…
