We’re CREATEive BEings!

I’ve seen comments here and there on websites and social media and in real life, where folks are expressing a desire for vengeance toward the ones who harmed Gaia and humanity/others. I understand that folks wanting vengeance are very wounded and traumatized and horrified at what has been done to others and themselves/their families.

But it is still wanting to do harm to other living beings. Those harmful beings who hurt others will be removed from society, from power, will be evaluated and judged and will receive consequences. Maybe recycled to Source, maybe put in a rehabilitation/redemption program, maybe shipped off somewhere. But I very much doubt that they will receive the sadistic treatment they inflicted on others.
I don’t mind that, I just want them GONE. Removed from power, removed from any contact with children. Just take them away and keep them away and powerless. I think that’s good enough.

Requesting vengeance or ill-treatment for them may lower our own vibration. I don’t make excuses for them, I don’t say that them becoming whistleblowers erases the harm they did, maybe some were blackmailed with threats toward their family or themselves. Those are the ones that maybe can be redeemed. But the ones that chose to go dark because it brought them fame/power/money, the ones that chose to go dark because they used the excuse that they were harmed so it justified them harming others – those are inexcusable. I am sure there will be consequences for them that do not put innocent people at risk and do not have the dark ones still walk among society.

But I think it is toxic to ourselves if we think or desire harm towards them.

I am not judging anyone by saying this, I am concerned for our precious Lightworkers and Lightwarriors to not be harmed further by thoughts/desire for vengeance.

Hopefully the advanced tech/NESARA will bring great relief to everyone, and healing can take place and we will have better things to concern ourselves with, such as enjoying life without the obstacles we previously had to deal with. Imagine a world with free energy, abundant water/food, 3D printing that can even make shelters/material goods, no need for a suffering job to avoid starvation/homelessness. One could travel around the world for free and explore and do what one loves without consideration of financial survival.

All the art and music and performance that will spring forth! At first we may choose to tell our stories of hardship, of our process of healing or redemption, but eventually the expressions of joy, of admiration of Creation, will flow. For what we are, what we are made of, the very, very core of our existence is that we are CREATEors!

We CREATE, we are the melody-makers and we are the dreamers of dreams which we manifest into reality! Please look forward to that and start imagining the possibilities! The universe is a giant wish-fulfillment machine and we supply it with the programming – envision a joyous world of abundance and good fellowship and exploration and CREATEive endeavors!

It will surely come, and we are about to see that come into being very, very soon! We should start now with our dreaming and our envisioning and our CREATEivity. It is a better way to use our time/energy.

Blessings of Love and Light to you all!

The Cost Of Winning At All Costs

This is something I’ve been thinking about lately.

A few months ago, someone asked me if I’d ever backed down or backed away from an argument or going after something I’d fixed my sights on. “Never,” I replied.

And hasn’t that been a tiring way to go about life!

It’s hard not to engage in that kind of thing, especially when so many others pride themselves on their skill in shouting down – literally! – any who disagree with them.  So what do you have to do to get heard in that situation? Shout LOUDER!!!

Are arguments really even actually won on the merits of fact these days? Or is it more like two dogs growling and barking and verbally threatening each other until one dog backs down out of self-preservation and the other dog trots off smugly, thinking this means they’ve actually won and proven somehow that they were right.

Politics, religion, war, vaccines, tv shows, whose turn it is to wash the dishes… how many of these are “won” at the cost of damaging a relationship, a life, a country, a planet?

If you’re really convinced you’re right and your side is sound, then what does it cost you to politely listen to the other side? Really listen, I mean. Not just hearing the noises that come out of their mouths and into your ears, while you’re busy formulating your counter-argument to verbally beat them down until they submit to your will?

Trust me, it’s just not worth it.  Go ahead and disagree with me. If you can’t even listen calmly, sympathetically to the other side, and the only basis for what you believe is right is a religious-like fervor and a loud set of lungs, and stale repeats of the same tired old info, then I’ll respect your right to your religious beliefs, because it sure isn’t based on facts.

Just because you say you’re right and “a million other people” agree with you, doesn’t mean I’ll agree that that is fact or that you’re right.  And in the past, I’d stand toe-to-toe with you and loudly debate that with you ’til the cows came home.

But not any more.  It’s just not worth it and there are far better pursuits for me to put my time, effort and energy into. How much damage do we do when we must win at all costs?

How high a cost is too much?

And even after we’ve paid that price, we still may not win. What then? Do we choose to reflect upon our own choices and the quality of judgement we used? Do we re-examine our stance and our “facts” or beliefs and see if perhaps we may have miscalculated or been in error? Do we resolve to do better and to make amends to the folks we hurt along the way?

Or do we sulk like petulant children and blame everyone and everything else, even fictitious things, as the reason we didn’t win. Do we walk off with a smile on our faces, blithely ignoring the trail of ruin and acrimony we left in our wake? Or do we actually feel exultant BECAUSE of the hurt we inflicted upon others?

When will hurting others cease being an “acceptable” price to pay for how we choose to pursue “winning”? And when will we realize that when we trample over others to win, that we haven’t really won at all?

Self Care Is Not An Option – It’s Your Right To Say ‘No’ To Toxic People

pleaseing
Reinforce your boundaries and borders and your belief that it is entirely appropriate for you to have those. It is not selfish. You deserve to have those. Meditate on having confidence in your right to say ‘No’ to things/people.
 
Building up your foundations of self-preservation and self-empowerment should give you a boost in well-being, energy and overall life-balance/satisfaction. It should also boost your confidence in disengaging from toxic people/situations.
 
Choose one thing each day to do for you, externally and internally. You deserve it, you need it, it is healthy. It is not optional to practice self-care.
 
Right now, the number one priority is allowing yourself your inalienable right to say ‘No’ and the right to insist that your feelings, your needs are entirely valid.
 
If others can’t/won’t respect that, you don’t owe them explanations (They actually do know you have these rights but they get a kick out of watching you flail and exhaust yourself explaining this to them. It’s just more energy/power they can suck out of you, more control they have over you), so just walk away.
 
Your energy is better spent on you. <3 hugs <3

Geeky Gift Guide 2017 – Part One

Part of the fun in attending a geek convention like Clover Con, Dragon Con or the Steampunk World’s Fair, is a tour of the vendors area and the artist’s alley/art show.  Since I don’t have a million-dollar budget to buy everything I like, I pick up vendor business cards for future reference.

Both amazon and elfster have little dashboard buttons so you can automatically add stuff from other websites to your wishlists!  Please consider adding some of these geeky merchants/artists to your wishlist for the holidays!

In some states, rates are less than half of what it actually costs to care for a child in foster care.”
