Resistance Is Futile

There is so much happening in the world right now that sometimes it can feel a bit overwhelming. All of it depends on which side of the kaleidoscope each of us are choosing to look through. koliedescopeLooking through the wide lends, backward through to the eyepiece, there is only one limiting perspective. This limited perspective is often the viewpoint of those around the viewer and many times based on outmoded beliefs that don’t really serve anyone. Many people simply can’t see any other perspective because that one-way aligns with what they have always believed. The idea of believing something new often creates inner-chaos. This inner-chaos is what psychologists refer to as Cognitive Dissonance. Those who are open-minded enough to understand that their limiting beliefs may not be in alignment with their greatest good, have no trouble turning the kaleidoscope around and seeing the beauty of multiple perspectives.

This morning, as I spent time at the gym giving my body it’s much needed exercise, the concept of seeing resistance from multiple perspectives came through. The #Resist movement is gaining momentum for the movers and the shakers who are using this time to move humanity forward and shake up the status quo. Aka, free humanity from the controls of fear and patriarchy so that we can all live together in balance and harmony. Ultimately, that is what we all seek, whether we realize it or not.

What came through in my questioning was a multiple perspective of resistance and the energy needed to create the world we all say we desire. For those who are a follower of Abraham, this is especially juicy.

“As our Dear One Abraham teaches and many spiritual teachers understand, what you resist persists. Resistance as a form of fighting against. Againstness has never solved anything. Againstness only keeps you stuck in the very thing you resist. As long has your focus is on what you don’t want, you will get more of the same, simply because that is all that you can see. Resisting what you don’t want causes a force to constrain you and as such, resistance is futile. In your againstness and resistance you are pulled back and assimilated into the fear, the very thing you are attempting to fight against. Imagine that you are a rubber-band, pulling away from what you resist. This pulling away from, resistance, can only holdup for so long before it swings backward, into the very thing you are attempting to pull yourself from. If your focus is on what is behind you, fighting against becomes exhausting. If you are able to change your focus from what you are against, and rather resistance is futilemaintain your holding pattern, this allows you to then persist forward. Rather than fighting against, you can resist being assimilated by holding in your truth and resilience while looking forward. This holding stance gives you the ability to refuse being assimilated while not fighting against the old consciousness. Holding in neutrality than allows you to focus on what you want without being pulled back and out of shape as you lose yourself in the fear. From neutrality you are able to tap into the persistence necessary to push forward. Push forward long enough and the pulling of the past has no choice but to eventually let go and propel you forward. Persistence is powered by love and is far more powerful than resistance which is forced by fear. This isn’t to say of course that you turn blindly the other way so that you cannot see what is behind you. Looking in the rear view mirror as you progress forward is a safety check and a measure for how far you have come. Persist rather than resist is the consciousness that is necessary to create permanent forward movement. Decline to be assimilated and pulled backward, hold yourself with grace and dignity, and move forward with conscious action into the desired future that serves all life on earth, rather than the few who see themselves as being above all others. Persist, rather than resist, is the focus that you seek.”

I asked once why Yeshuah (the teacher many call Jesus) used metaphors and why the Divine Feminine speaks to me in metaphors. She replied that metaphors and stories allow human beings to understand what is being taught from the perspective of where they presently are. One of the issues with our religiosities is that many teachers are metaphoretelling people what to think based on where the teacher is, rather than creating a space for students to learn and understand based on where the student is. Some are regurgitating hand-me-down teachings, rather than asking for a new understanding based on where we presently are. Being unable to see from a new perspective, multiple perspectives, is why humanity is stuck where it is. We simply cannot move into our next phase of our collective evolution as long as we focus on the past.

The #Resist movement is working, not because of what it is resisting but because of what it is persisting. Women, and forward-thinking men, are no longer accepting what they cannot change, because they have accepted that they themselves are the change. While there are some who are “fighting against,” the core energy of the movement itself is “pushing for.”  This pushing is how we give birth and nurture a new reality based in love, rather than holding in the constraints of fear.

And yes, just in case you were wondering, I am a Star Trek fan.

Until next time be fearless, fabulous and free!

Healing Trauma to The Human Spirit

For me, soul and spirit are have two separate distinctions. The soul is that part of you that is connected to all that is. It is your inner intelligence that knows what is best for you and progresses trough its own evolution through the cosmos. Spirit on the other hand is energy. It is a common term used for what we cannot see yet can feel.  Love is the spirit that all things are made from and is the energy we all create. The soul is perfect and can never be damaged and yet it feels for so many of us, that at points in our life, our spirit has been broken. For some, like me, breaking my spirit was intentional as part of my religious dogma.

Spiritual trauma is simply the result of our spirit, the electromagnetic energy of the heart, being encapsulated and controlled by fear.

The bushel of fear around our heart disconnects us from our true divine nature, which is love. This is the heart’s light that is spoken about in scriptures, books, movies and music. The heart is the first sign of life in an embryo and when the light goes out, physical life comes to an end. The light within us, is what we are all ultimately trying to find – it is the source of love.

All of the unhappiness in the world is the result of the belief that we are disconnected from love as fear takes hold and diminishes our light.

This of course is on an unconscious level as our ego’s and many of our belief systems teach us that love and worthiness have to be earned. At the core of who we are, we are all worthy of love and no one can take it from us. We have never been separate from love, aka God, except that our beliefs have made it so. All of the beliefs about trying to get back to God, are really about finding our way home to our true divine selves. The light and way are within us, and only through the “self” can one get to God.

Beyond the fields of broken hearts and shattered dreams is love attempting to find its way home to you.

Here is a short video affirmation to remind you of who you are.

Love is the most powerful force in the universe and love has the power to transmute all fear. When you are in the vibration of love, all things are possible.

Until next time, be fearless, fabulous and free, and be Love!

Love Is All There Is, Really!

Recently I had the opportunity so share my message of Love Is All There Is to the congregation at the Innerfaith Spiritual Center Worldwide in Palm Springs, CA. I shared my story of growing up in polygamy, how I ran away as a teenager and my  awakening experience that came with fully understanding that love really is all there is.

I’ve edited my presentation into three videos for easy viewing. Here is part one. Be sure to checkout the other two.  The real punch is at the end.

This whole idea that, “God Is Love” and in exactly the same token that we need to “Fear God,” is one of those dichotomies that seems to keep people spiritually stuck and confused. Do we love him or fear him, is he unconditionally loving or angry and vengeful? Why do we have to prove ourselves worthy of him if he doesn’t judge us? Hello?

Tweetable: God is love, period. Everything else was created in the minds of men.

Okay, I’m putting it right out there that to me, God is not some mystical, magical man in the sky. The God that I was raised with seems a bit like Santa Clause, naughty and nice and all that jazz, and they look very much alike according to my kids. For much of my life I believed in the God of man but now that concept seems far too small for me. I find it nearly impossible to limit infinite love, infinite intelligence, infinite wisdom and infinite creation into the shape and form of a man.  For me, the infinite energy that many call God is the energy of Love. Love is all that it is. It is without shape, form or function and is without limits. We are all one with it and it is one with us, because it is pure energy. It is the energy of love and love is the energy that creates all things. Science is beginning to prove that.

You may or may not agree with me and I’m okay with that. Ultimately we all have our own paths and perceptions, and perception becomes reality.

The belief that God is a man came from a time in our human evolution when it was all that our young minds could conceive. Perhaps it is time to evolve our beliefs into a higher understanding of Spirit. Perhaps it is time for our belief systems to catch up with science. Perhaps it is time to evolve all of our beliefs out of fear and into love.  When all of our religiosities evolve to teach love rather than fear, I believe humanity has a real chance at peace on earth.
