Why are you upset?

Why are you upset?

Well, as a highly sensitive person (HSP) and empath, I just learned today that, “You are only upset about someone else’s disturbance when you CONNECT with the negative Energy of their experience”! ❤️🦋🌀

It seems simple.

It seems I have heard something like that before. Or that at my age, I should have known that. Hmmm. I will meditate on that statement (sit with it) for a few days, and then update this post.

Would you like to share what you think this statement means?

You are only upset about someone else’s disturbance when you CONNECT with the negative Energy of their experience.

I know why I’m upset if someone does or says something TO me, and I know it’s my choice as to how I react. Some people laugh stuff off, but not me. I take stuff seriously. Ugh!

I know it’s my choice about how I react to external situations, but sometimes the emotions overwhelm me to the point that my logic doesn’t work. I use EFT to calm myself during those times, but I would prefer to feel less upset, especially when whatever the situation is has NOTHING to do with me!

Until today, I couldn’t figure out was why I let other people’s negative experiences bother me. When someone is sad or hurting, I empathize.

What happened today?

I listened to Alania Starhawk’s lunchtime Facebook Live message and the statement in bold above just dropped into my mind!

We Are All Connected. OM

Many blessings to you in ALL ways.

Speaking MY Truth about Church Coverup

One of my beloved cousins told me to speak my truth years ago, but I wasn’t always brave enough to do so, for fear of hurting other people’s feelings.
Then, one day, I realized I am not responsible for other people’s feelings and cannot please everyone.
So, what did I say that ruffled some feathers?
Well, I spoke my truth in response to a Facebook post about a 70+ year coverup involving abuse and rape of children in the Catholic church! These horrors were put upon innocent and trusting children as young as, in one documented case, 18 months of age!
Church members (definitely the upper clergy members) are supposed to hold each other accountable. Far too many forget this.
Everyone has the ability to choose Compassion and forgive.
Everyone has the right to choose their faith.
But, clergy in the Catholic church allowed the abuse and rape of children to go on and on. And the higher ups covered it up!
Only Omniscient God can forgive such defiling acts.
As a church goer, do you hold your clergy accountable?
How would you know if he or she was a predator?
If everyone would QUIT attending, the churches would fall overnight. No attendees = no church. Everyone is complicit in this who knowingly attends and puts time and money into these institutions.
Way past the time for people to wake up.
Yes, I shared from MY unique vantage point. I shared my perspective. How dare I throw out my opinion to an unsuspecting, conditioned group of friends and family on Facebook? Ha! Oh, ye of little backbone.
Truth is being revealed.
Every one of us are responsible for how WE feel.
I cannot MAKE anyone happy.
I am the only one who can allow another person to upset me. And I wish I wouldn’t, so I am constantly learning and improving my emotional balance.
I’ve learned, I can choose to tend to my own feelings and BE happy in most of the moments, hours, days, weeks, months, and years of my life. It’s ALL a choice.
I have to pay attention to how I am feeling, and then be decisive on whether I’m going to get tied up in some upsetting thought, or turn to a pleasant topic.
Now, everyone (in particular, my family) should know where I stand—or FLOW—with issues because I write to a world audience on two blogs, in two books (with a third due out any day), and so forth. But, let’s assume you haven’t read anything I’ve written before.
If you know me, you know it’s never my intention to hurt anyone. As that’s not me. Not my nature.
I share from my open heart. And sometimes, yes, perhaps often, I open mySelf up to more abuse by speaking my truth. So be it. I stand in my power. I stand in my own alignment with my Soul, Holy Spirit, Holy Ghost, or whatever you choose to call the Presence of Omnipotent, Omnipresent, Omniscient Creator God.
Perhaps I do cast my pearls before swine. But, to the core of my BEing, I am a teacher, a way shower. I am doing what I am called to do, to hasten the Light of our Ever-Living Creator into the dark shadows.
So, before you allow something I say or write to upset your little apple cart, you might seek first to understand, before rushing to judgment.
After all this, if you are hurt by what I say or write, feel free to change the channel. Some have, some will, but that’s what I write most about—choice!
I have been posting or commenting on open online forums since 1990. Thus, it’s really on you if you don’t know who I am.
My ego is not hurt or offended if you disagree with what I say or write.
Here’s what I DO stand for:
  • I speak FOR and in support of the abused children.
  • I am for school choice.
  • I am for parental involvement in school affairs and doctor / coach visits.
  • I am for transparency.
If you did the same, here’s what I think that would look like:
Walk into your child’s classroom unannounced to check on the well-being of your child (and all children).
Spend some time getting to know the kids your child goes to school with.
Spend some time getting to know the people who teach your child/children.
Home school your children.
Only support churches that have transparent policies and no hidden secrets.
Boldly attend coaching sessions, doctor visits with your child.
Do not abdicate YOUR responsibility! There are things you’re called to be responsible for–and the safety of your children is top priority.
To many times we think we’re honoring people in our past who trained us (such as my aunt who attended Catholic nursing school), or relatives whom we love, by going along with their beliefs instead of studying for ourself and aligning with Omniscience Creator.
And if you’re a “believer” you should know better. You should know what it feels like to align with the Holy Ghost before you EVER condemn another.
Do not let your so-called “honor” of your own past experiences, or any other’s beliefs (because you’re people-pleasing), override your own Soul-calling (or Holy Ghost) NOW choice to speak up and out in service to protect children.
Do I give my time and money to institutions that HIDE their misdeeds in secret? No!
It is never my intention to be hurtful or disrespectful, but only in our NOW experience, is where our power is, and it affords us the ability to CHOOSE to do something to end the abuse.
Yes, do I believe in Grace. AbSOULutely.
But, only our LIMITLESS God can offer grace in ALL areas and in all circumstances.
I write to a global audience.
I coach people on how they can shift their thoughts, way before any abuse can occur.
When I say, “I draw the line at abuse and rape.” It is because I mind my own thoughts (mind my own business), until someone hurts a child.
Performing grievous acts while hiding behind ANY religion is blasphemous to Omniscience!
As always watching the news or reading anyone’s Facebook is your choice.
I am HERE to speak MY truth and offer suggestions for coming into alignment with Omniscient, Omnipresent, Omnipotent, LIMITLESS, Creator God.
Do what feels more aligned with your Soul.
I do.
Thank you to those who have prompted me to share this and feel lighter today.
Be ye blessed in ALL ways.

Be the person your Soul knows you are!

Namaste. OM

UPDATE:

I feel like John Lennon may have felt after releasing his song, Imagine.

People will take this article and my small opinion about it in a variety of ways based on their own filters, conditioning, and experience.

I have written publicly about my dislike of organized religion for over 10 years. Check my blog.

I never said I wanted anyone to leave God.

I write volumes about God. About the Omniscience, Omnipotence, and Omnipresence of God.

I was awakened in the middle of the night, the day I shared this. I was told to “DO SOMETHING.” It was the night I happened to see only a short clip of this story. I then, spent hours watching survivor stories, BEFORE writing a few sentences above this post.

I am NOT arrogant, never have been. I doubt my sharing will make much difference. I am only following through to “do something.”

My apologies have been sent to the dear friends who were hurt by my words. I ALLOWED mySelf to be hurt by some comments from family. But, no more.

We each have our opinions. I will always listen. But, I will not comment anymore here. That ship has sailed.

I feel a lot of growth has occurred from this exchange.

From now on, I earnestly pray for the recovery of the victims in this story, and ALL victims of abuse, physical, mental, and emotional. Peace.

P.S.
To my family, or anyone who would feel better about judging me for MY choices:
I love you very much.
Do NOT judge me as being someone who aligns with “satan” or dark, dense forces, as I surely do not.
How dare you?
You obviously know NOTHING about me, or the Lord you claim to serve by throwing stones of judgment toward me.
I speak my truth and call out the predators of this world who harm children and you have the audacity to speak against me?
What saddens me is all of the judgment I am receiving from so-called loved ones, when I speak my truth. Wake up! You crucify Christ all over again!
Would you call Jesus the devil for overthrowing the money changers’ tables in the temple?
Sheeple!
We are called to study to show ourselves approved, NOT by following what some pastor says, or whether you attend ANY church! Study ALL of the Holy Words! There is more than one.
Be careful that you do not become self righteous hypocrites.
Remember what Jesus taught about throwing stones? Have you looked in the mirror and found yourself blameless?
If you are so weak that you cannot handle the world without church, then you are the one who needs to spend some time Connecting with Omniscience to gird up your loins and find your authentic voice! I have found my voice and take responsibility for it.
I stand in my powerful alignment with Omniscience.
I am calling out for people to not align with those who hide behind religion to hurt children.
This is what I’ve been shown to do. You do not have to listen to me.
I hope you spend your time and money with those whom you align with. For Jesus said there will your heart be also.
I do hope the people you’re hanging out with are of the utmost and highest good for your soul’s journey and not hurting a child in the back room.
My prayer is: Omniscience, above and through ALL, forgive them for they know not what they do.
OM

Results from participating in Alania Starhawk’s Creative Alchemy online class

After moving from the west coast of Florida to the east coast, I’d thought I was going to miss participating and joining with many of the groups I’d become so engaged with!

Thus, I was so excited when Alania Starhawk offered a webinar type of online 4-week class. I jumped at the opportunity to participate!

I love learning via tele-call series and online programs, and Alania’s class was aWEsOMe! I was always so eager to connect each Tuesday evening at 7pm–a perfect time for me!

IMG_6851.jpg

I really enjoyed the Webinar Ninja online platform and that there was plenty of space to make notes in the chat window, while learning in this way.

As you see, I was able to take screen captures of the slides that Alania presented to include the chat text I shared, (using my iPhone), to save for my future reference. As well, each call was recorded and Alania shared the link with each of the attendees via email, so we can listen to the calls again and again.

When I began the course, I’d been finishing up a book, which I’d been working on (off and on) for 13 years. I had desired to complete it a couple of years ago, but that didn’t happen. Awhile later, I’d wanted to finish it last year, and then I started a new job and three days later, my mother passed.

By December of 2017, I’d decided I would set a date to wrap up the book (no matter how “complete” I thought it was), by May 2018–before going to New Hampshire for the month. Yet, the book languished on the computer with many notes on my iPhone for it, that I needed to verify via books and online sources.

When I signed up for Creative Alchemy I had an idea that I would use whatever energy I felt from the class, and whatever enthusiasm it sparked, I’d direct it toward finishing the book.

I’m ecstatic to tell you all, that yes, it worked! I completed the manuscript of the book on 8/6/2018, right before the Lion’s Gate date of 8/8! And I didn’t even know what the Lion’s Gate was!

Thus, the following are what I learned from Alania’s Creative Alchemy course:

  • I became energized about my own personal power
  • I was lovingly reminded that we are ALL supported
  • As I scrutinized my book, I felt a very tangible PUSH to stay focused
  • I opened more in an extraordinary way to get the book to the finish line

Alania’s class gave me a nudging boost, or gentle push, yet all of this happened with ease–to get my book done. I know it sounds odd to say that, and may be hard to imagine, but it’s true. Several things just sort of moved out of the way, yet nothing was ignored–and like a kaleidoscope that creates a gorgeous design by allowing all of the bits to easily fall into place–all of the edits that I’d had noted to make and all of the citations were checked by the last day of our class.

I finally felt a sense of balance about having written a book of over 200 pages about one’s personal responsibility and options within the realm of holistic health and wellness.

The manuscript is in layout phase now, and I will write another article and press release when that part of the process is complete. So, stay tuned!

About Alania Starhawk

Alania is one of the most genuine, brilliant, and bright shining hearts I know! I trust her implicitly.

I realize that in the world of spiritual teachers, mentors, way showers, channelers, and so forth, some people have skeptical thoughts. I can assure you of Alania’s integrity.

I’ve written previously that I meditate to expand my energy and reach. I see myself as a voice and influence, connecting to my coworkers, friends, neighbors, local community, state, region, country, continent, and world. WE ARE ALL CONNECTED. And I always want to honor this knowing.

If we’re in better shape emotionally, mentally, and physically, we can change the world! And why is that important? Because We Are All Connected!

I invite you to explore Alania’s upcoming retreats–and perhaps I’ll meet you on one in the next couple of years!

Alania’s additional retreats are on her website under the tab, Sacred Events. You can learn about her upcoming Sedona retreat here ->> https://alaniastarhawk.com/2018/07/22/sedona-retreat-2018/#

What is a lie?

Depending upon the dictionary you use, when you look up the word “lie” and try to define it, you’ll find that it’s mostly referred to as some sort of deception, false impression, or intentionally untrue statement.

So, a lie then, is defined as the opposite of truth. Right? It’s something that’s untrue.
Or is it?
Is the lie the opposing viewpoint?
Is it a lie because it goes against what you KNOW, or perceive to be true?
Many years ago, I used to say that my ex could lie to me and tell me the sky was black, though I knew it was blue. And that he was so good at it, so convincing, he’d make me look at the sky again to be sure.
I used to get so angry (mad) when he, or anyone would lie to me! Grrr… what planet were they from? Why would they lie? To get what they wanted?
But now I wonder. What if a lie is really just another way of looking at something?
Let’s imagine we’re standing at a tree. A tree that is full of leaves.
The side of the tree you’re looking at has green leaves, so you make an assumption that all of the leaves of the tree are green. But, what if someone else is standing on the other side of the tree, and there are a few yellow or reddish colored leaves on that side.
Even if we care about the person standing over there, we might get defensive when our friend states they love the yellow leaves they’re seeing. We may disagree or argue our point, even without walking around to the other side!
So, how can we know for sure what colors the leaves are on the other side of the tree?
Like the yellow leaves on the other side of that tree, opposite from where you are standing, a lie is something someone else thinks they know.
They’ll defend “their truth” about yellow leaves until the cows come home!
But, you can’t see the yellow leaves, so you think they’re wrong, nuts, or crazy.
Instead, why not just allow the other person to have his or her understanding of it?
And what difference does any of it make anyway?
We don’t always have to be right after all? And if we do, then that’s our ego.
What if a lie is the other perspective that you are unable to understand?
Think about a conversation where someone says something that you believe is untrue. It makes you mad. You fight it. The anger about the lie becomes intense within you.
Where do you feel that anger?
How do you feel it?
Isn’t it bizarre that you can actually FEEL the weight, or density of the negative energy?

Ahh, there’s almost a substance to it.

Thus, emotion scribes energy to the cellophane (the invisible realm where energy is stored before/after it becomes matter).
What???
Now, I realize your head may have just exploded, but try to follow this:
Imagine that there’s a sheet of cellophane between you and the person you are having a heated conversation with.
When you allow their perception (their version of the truth) to upset you, you speak some charged words.
The energy from your words sticks in the cellophane.
The next time someone walks through that cellophane, especially a sensitive person (sensitive to energies), they FEEL that dense energy–almost like a heaviness in the air!
So, the next time someone lies to you, consider first, that they are only sharing their perspective with you. You may not agree. You may not like it.
When someone lies to you, especially if it’s about a really important subject, tell yourself that they are in a different reality. And FEEL if this lightens the weight of the lie.
Just as I no longer believe that a lie is wrong or bad, I also no longer believe there’s such a thing as false hope. For any hope at all, whether it is based on fact or fiction, is still hope.
Let’s assign truth and hope the number 1 and a lie and false hope the number 0.
1+0 = 1
Thus, we see that the even when we try to add something false to something true, we still have something true. It’s only our perception that is limited.
Remember that HOPE is the substance of things not yet seen. Not yet seen! Not real yet. Not actual yet.
So, let’s say someone tells you a lie about a topic that you don’t care much about. You can shrug it off easily, right?

However, when someone tells you a lie about love, about someone you love, or that they don’t love you, that lie drains you of energy, right?

Similar to a battery that only has enough power to keep it going, though not enough to start the engine, a lie about the existence of love pulls energy out of you.
Why?
Because WE are all LOVE in our core and anything that shuts down or restricts that love FEELS bad to us.
Perspectives. It’s all about perspectives and perception.
Check out these two images from the same kaleidoscope, that was simply turned a bit:
IMG_6905.jpgIMG_6934.jpg
How do each of these two statements make you feel?
I love that you make me laugh!
Versus
I love to laugh at you!
Pick up a kaleidoscope and peer into it, notice the myriad perspectives available to you. The fractals involved in the patterns created. And when, because you will, you cannot help to do so, move it the slightest bit the light will hit the items within it, and you’ll see different colors and patterns. For this is the way of the kaleidoscope. This is also the way of the interconnectedness of the universe.
I hope this helps to lighten you today, and step a bit lighter on the earth.

Be the person your Soul knows you are!

I love you.
You are enough.
You are worthy of love.
Namaste. OM
Note: This post is NOT about condoning lies or compulsive liars (certainly no one needs to stay with people who habitually act like that), it’s about feeling better, coming to terms, or forgiving someone when it occurs. Learn and move on. It’s all YOUR choice.

Book Review: Soul Explorer

Preface: Since my mother transitioned to the Great Beyond on June 8th, 2017, I’ve received many messages from her in the form of visiting animals, songs in my head, dreams, and visions when meditating or relaxing during restorative yoga sessions, or the receiving of acupuncture treatments.

As I would allow my mind to settle, with my eyes closed, while focused on my breathing, I would observe my thoughts until the space between them would grow. Then, gently, I would receive the color of indigo to cobalt blue, with the blue hue deepening (depending upon how much light was shining through the blue), all in my mind’s eye!

I now know that whenever I soul explore, my mama and her babies, are always guiding me. And I dedicate this article to them. They show me that they are blissfully all together, in the Great Beyond!

Soul Exploring

As I’ve written previously, you know that I was destined to meet Patricia McGivern, author of both, Angel Babies and Soul Explorer.

Patricia’s brilliant and deep blue eyes had inexplicably showed me that we shared a connection right from our first meeting, though back then, I could not possibly fathom as to what extent. Even now, I feel I am still only knowing of the “tip of the iceberg” so to say, of our interconnectedness.

When my unborn sister, Christina, came through (during my first hypnosis session with Patricia), I glimpsed more than Christina’s beautiful spirit, pulsing right on time, and in perfect resonance–I caught a bit of her essence.

Myriad points of intersection

You can’t physically see how each of us are connected, or where all of the paths of our lives intersect, but they profoundly cross and mingle.

You don’t know when the intersections are going to occur, but they will!

Christina showed me several spiritual mysteries, and while I studied Patricia’s book, Soul Explorer, I was opened up to realizing more.

I’d gone north to visit my daughter, son-in-law, soul-connected (golden, crystal, or indigo child) granddaughter, Jennifer Ann, and twins, Jaclyn Moon, and Jewel Marie for the month of May. And during my late evening times alone is when I would study, Soul Explorer.

Intro to the book

If you have been intrigued about past lives, and wonder how it might work, or if it even could be possible, I highly recommend reading Soul Explorer.

There are so many detailed accounts of people’s past lifetimes, later validated through dedicated research and discovery, that it shines a bright light on an otherwise not often talked about subject.

Personally, I was drawn to the many accounts of physical healing that occurred after someone underwent a past life regression–profoundly amazing!!

Highlighted passages

I highlighted many passages and sentences in Soul Explorer, and thus, it would be exhaustive for me to share them all with you. Plus, I wouldn’t want to spoil the fun and intrigue for any of you before you read this richly developed book!

So, here are a few of the most meaningful parts, (that resonated with me on many levels–even including names, places, and page numbers), I discovered:

Page 45 (Bill’s story):

“I thought I could fix her.”

I experienced the same kind of on again/off again relationship with a man years ago, and this chapter validated many of the things I learned from that period of my life. This story also answered why I had felt like my choices were not my own (during that time), though I do believe I had a choice and eventually did act upon my right and power to choose to leave–once I gave myself the necessary permission.

Page 85 (Ginny’s story):

“I thought it would be easier to have a life where I wasn’t loved, and I didn’t love anyone including me…so that it wouldn’t hurt so much.”

This chapter’s story helped me to have some understanding of why some people are hateful, bitter, mean, and can’t or won’t express love.

Page 117 (Ginny’s story):

“I chose to stay behind.”

My sister, Christina, had told me (while I was in a state of hypnosis), that she chose to stay behind (not incarnate) out of fear.

Much in Ginny’s story resonated for me, and I hope to meet her in an upcoming journey to England, Ireland, and Scotland in 2019.

Page 255 (Bobbie’s story): I wasn’t going to include this one, but I opened the book at 2:55pm today and saw this underlined and the page number circled!

“Just me… they stink!

And I had scrawled in the margin that this could be a judgment that could lead a person to not want to breathe!

Sure enough, on the next page I read that Bobbie had a high sense of judgment (so do I), and that she had felt like her lungs had been suffocated.

Note: I had asthma for 40+ years of my life! Could it have eased when I released the need to judge others?

Page 276:

“There is a part of you that remembers everything.”

This last page is astounding. I underlined almost the entire page! Mind-blowing.

You must read this book!

Meeting again

Even before I returned home, Patricia had seen a Facebook post of mine about our move (we moved April 1st to Patricia’s hometown)! And of course, us moving to the town we did was outside of any of our conscious awareness that it would give us a reason and ease of ability to connect–so soon!

Just days after my return home, Patricia and I met for lunch and talked for an hour, nearly non-stop! Every other moment I felt “God bumps.” (Refer to my previous posts to learn more about the physical sensations I call, God bumps.)

How grand and magnificent it is to think, my sister Christina, Patricia McGivern and her Angel Babies book, and a metaphysical shop in New Hampshire, all played starring roles in my daughter’s journey to birth identical twin daughters, and for me to be their grandmother!

How blessed we all are. And how intricately, and infinitely, We Are All Connected. (Even when we cannot see the lines.)

Be the person your Soul knows you are!

Blessings in ALL ways,

Namaste. OM

My take on New Thought

First, the back drop I’d like to make is that one of the things humans love to do is to make much ado about nothing. We love to categorize, label, and define things, which often leads to us complicating very simple things. We also love to feel in CONTROL, by controlling situations, or people, around us.

I love to find the wisdom within the simple things. I love to look at everything from a child’s point of view. I feel this helps keep my thoughts and energy balanced.

Thus, the main points I’d like to capture here are as follows:

I’ve written previously that there are many names for God, whilst Omnipotence, Omniscience, Omnipresence is above and beyond and LIMITLESS of “naming.” To say that Omni-everything is a Deity (whether personal or impersonal) with any name, still sounds limiting to me.

Oneness works for the Omni-everything, but Divineness (to me) still implies some sort of inherent “goodness.” Omni-everything is ever-living, creating and destroying. If you can find the “goodness” in destruction, then perhaps we’re sharing the same stream of consciousness.

To strictly state that there is a “Law” of anything is something difficult for a child to understand. My six year old granddaughter knows when she touches something too hot, it can hurt her. Or if she drops something heavy on her toe, that it hurts. But she does not comprehend any kind of law, not even the law of gravity, much less the law of attraction. However, could there be any kind of laws, of course, though that concept seems man-made to me, so if you think Omni-everything dictates certain precepts or laws, you’re anthropomorphizing the LIMITLESS.

One may also suggest that LIMITLESS constructs the Universes according to certain laws. I’d rather suggest that LIMITLESS organizes Universes by design. Within art, there are no mistakes. Take whatever you think Perfection is, and find the imperfection. Find a way to love that.

Through the LIMITLESS Omni-everything, we are. We exist. We BE. Whether or not we’ve lived before, most surely we live NOW. And right now we are creating our reality through our thoughts, time, attention, intention, and way of BEing. For this, we are each responsible. We are choosing in every minute, by direct focus, or not.

Whether we realize the impact of our actions, which stem from each and every thought we have, effects others or not, We Are All Connected, so they do. We sew and reap. What we sew impacts others. And others sew impacts us. But always, there are ways for us to choose.

Some people choose not to live in a house divided, or in a county where too much control is exerted over them. They CHOOSE to leave. In this way, they are creating their own reality by choosing to make a better choice for them, in the NOW.

Even people in bondage can choose to control their thoughts and find freedom there. Those who do not feel they have any choice in their day to day, can meditate and find relief. No one can ever control  your thoughts. In your thoughts is where you can find total freedom.

A child would not know of, or necessarily be caught up in performing rituals or services, thus dogmas and religions wouldn’t be important. However, most children understand (by way of parental conditioning) that honoring their parents, or those that care for them, is important. I find a personal fulfillment in the honoring of my ancestors, if for no other reason than I would not be here in this life, physically, had it not been for them.

It matters not to me of which religion or dogma my ancestors believed, or practiced. I am still here. I am thinking it would be better somehow if I came to be here via the LOVE they expressed for one another, but I am mature enough to realize that is not the case for everyone. Some are born outside of, and apart from a loving experience, but that does not mean they cannot find love. And it certainly does not mean they are not worth of being loved.

Children understand that truth, love, and compassion FEELS freeing. It does not feel good to be called names (even in a joking way), and it does not feel good to be excluded or neglected.

Children do not get all that caught up in whether they’ve lived before, or whether someone leaves their experience, as long as their present moment is nurturing and fun–full of new and continuing opportunities for BEing part of something, anything!

 

 

Therefore, the use of exclusionary words, such as “only” cause divisiveness.

When you limit anyone about anything with words such as “only” you are using control, or attempting to guide them in one direction. The Omni-everything allows, (not control). Control is an illusion, and one that is best let go of, if one prefers to FEEL free.

In freedom and love,
