It is amazing how fast time is flying. We are already in our first week of April. It brings to mind just how important it is to make the most of our days and nights. As we feel the increase of new energy we can make the most of it by simply devoting time on a daily basis to some very basic practices. Our bodies need to be cared for and that involves good nutrition and exercise. Our minds need to be cared for. It is essential that we continue to learn new things, venture out of our regular routine and see new things, read from a good book that inspires personal growth. Our spirit needs to be cared for. We can meditate in a variety of ways, implement fun, adventure and playtime into our world.
When we embrace self control we find ourselves creating from a very powerful place. Self control is not denial. It is knowing what makes our body/mind/spirit thrive and putting action to our knowing. As we enter the second quarter of the year 2013 take a moment to review your daily practices. What does it include? Be aware of whatever it is you do daily and then determine if it is really something that will serve you in the long run.
No doubt many people are waking up. Some are finding themselves rudely awakened. By that I mean the wake up call has arrived via some big attention getting scenario such as an illness. Don’t let this be your calling card to begin doing what you already know is best for you.
As time speeds up so does our manifesting ability. Be aware of what you are thinking and feeling. It is in our thinking and feeling that we are creating our reality. Look around at your day to day life. What is working and what is not working? Now check in with the way you think and feel for the most part in your day to day life. What is working and what is not working?
There is no better time then the present to set in motion positive change. In fact there is no other time but the present for us to begin making positive changes. If you have been sitting on the fence letting ideas float about in your mind the time is at hand to apply action. Without action to support our positive thinking very little will change.
This is your life. Make it the best life ever starting today. Share of your self, your talents, your resources, what ever they may be.
Bring a smile to your face and share that gift with those who cross your path.
Life can be both really good and very simple.
Here is to you living the best life ever ~ Starting right now
many blessings be yours
To release judgment frees our mind, to release emotions frees our Will.
an excerpt from “Conscious Mastery~ Freedom From the Inside Out”
Releasing is a process of freeing trapped energy. Trapped energy comes by many names such as blockage, old charge, old baggage, repressed emotions, shadows, inner demon, and so on. One of the by products of releasing trapped energy is the development of new perspectives and an expanded consciousness. Another benefit of releasing is renewed energy, patience, alignment with Source and true personal power, greater health, lighter attitude, and so much more. Emotion in its most natural state is energy in motion. Releasing pent up emotions can be done consciously yet often occurs when a person is triggered into a release via an experience. Conscious releasing begins with a desire for change. Recognition and acceptance of what has been denied sets the transformation into motion. It is a path that brings an end to suffering and confusion. It is a path that closes the gap between Source and ourselves. It closes the gap between who we think we are and who we truly are. A successful release brings light to truthful feelings as well as a new way of seeing and living life in physical reality. Energy is consciousness. Vibrations hold information. Releasing consciously as a means of transforming energy brings about healing and a movement toward wholeness. Many say this world is just an illusion. In many ways it is yet here we are walking, talking, eating, breathing, and relating in numerous ways both in this world and beyond.
So whether we think of life as an illusion or not I am learning how to be in the world but not of it. I find that to be an interesting and worthy journey. It is because I am “in this world” that I have found releasing old patterns, beliefs and pent up energy so important. It is in releasing all the dark and heavy invisible forces that I find myself experiencing more of the “ but not of it ” part of the statement which in turn makes being “in the world” so much more fun.
There comes a time when direct experience becomes the path and the answer. We can read and bring information into our mind, we can meditate and contemplate, all of which are valuable experiences unto themselves. Still, through it all it is our ability to experience what we feel that makes this Earth walk so fascinating and rewarding. Our emotions must be allowed to move, evolve and in so doing they bring greater awareness and true understanding, to the extent that we are open and ready to receive. The Will as much as the Spirit, must evolve. In these times of heightened awareness both are attempting alignment with Mother/Father God. When we are aligned, re-connected, with Source there is nothing about being in this world that doesn’t reflect our creator. A wise man once said “ Show me where God isn’t.” The birth of compassion tells us He is everywhere. Releasing that which blocks the light from illuminating our consciousness and blocks us from the truth is the path I share.

Giving advice or guidance that is born of experience is likened to an explorer who found a way from here to there then created a road map for others. The road map would help those interested in venturing further into the great unknown.
Our consciousness is like a vast territory waiting to be discovered. The beauty of explorers who have gone before us is this:
They can share their experience from pitfalls to victories. Sharing from the heart of true experience provides plenty of gems to help us grow.
However, it is always up to us to identify what resonates true for us in the “now” because we may not be ready for some pearls of wisdom until much later or ever. When we choose to accept the love and wisdom, that currently rings true, into our heart we will discover a deeper sense of inner strength and courage supporting our growth. We find ourselves making healthy growth promoting decisions as we venture deeper within the vast expanse of our own consciousness. We will eventually come to discover our own inner healer.
Sometimes a teacher does nothing more than point the way.
The rest is up to us. One thing after another unfolds. We move forward, deeper, and truer with growing conviction to be all that we are and have always been. There comes a time when we come to see your own experiences for what they are, no more denial, no more pretending. When we are ready to explore this territory we can and will embrace the understanding that comes with it. These are the moments when we are giving ourselves the gift of transformation. Transforming our awareness, our energy fields and ourselves from a lower vibrational resonance to a higher vibration. Once the new higher frequency of energy stabilizes within us our outer world reflection begins to reveal a new form, a new shape.
If you are in a position to give advice, make certain you are open-hearted and kind whether or not others follow your guidance. There is no way for any one to know what is right for another or when they are ready.
Experience speaks volumes and it shows in the way we live our life, the way we handle unexpected situations, how we act during times of success and failure, the way we treat our body, the way we treat others and so on. True experience in the realm of spiritual growth shows itself in people. Be the wisdom you share. Be the love that you are. The transformation within is, in itself, the sharing of wisdom.
Information without transformation does little to create change:
It would be of little value to give great advice and not live it. That happens when we have not yet had real experience in the area where advise is given and not lived. Information without transformation does little to create the changes in life one so desires. We must feel, live, remain open, honest and experience transformation for change in life to be sustainable. Everyone’s journey is unique but that should not stop anyone from learning from others who have walked before us. Learning is the acquisition of knowledge or skills through experience, practice, or study. We must actualize knowledge so it grows to become a well spring of wisdom that guides our every thought, word and deed.
In our time we have lost the connection of wisdom sharing from our ancestors. We live in a time where many people are simply regurgitating what they have read. For our lives to reflect the love that we are, to live life whole, happy and free we must delve deeper. We must allow for the experience of growth to be felt, understood and integrated within ourselves and into our daily life. We must do what we feel is the right thing to do even if it is not popular with friends or family.
May this year of 2013 find you bold in your growth, in your ability to shine your light, share your talents, your love and your wisdom through your actions.
May this year resonate with peace throughout the world
It all begins with you and me.
love and peace, Astara
