How to Awaken your Shakti

posted by David G Arenson ND

“Your life is truly worth living only when you have found something you can die for.”

shakti

You tell stories. You believe them.

They are just stories you have created, and will continue to create, unless you become “aware” (conscious) or awakened.

You are the creator.

Everything you see is actually revealing about you.

What you see in others, is inside you.

When you realize that, it will help you to SEE.

Then you will have a true UNDERSTANDING.

I am in your life because you created me.

Perhaps I am here to help you awaken.

For too long the traditional channels of communication (media, marketing, politics, etc.) have made us think and feel small. This has served their motive to control us and keep us subservient. So long as you believe yourself small, you seek their product to improve your life.

Remember what it felt like to be a child, to see the world of infinite possibility and to see no reason why our dreams can’t become reality. As adult stargazers, we intuitively know that the stars watch over us, exerting an unseen influence on our lives. The shift is that we’re seeing our own lives as a story in the grander scheme of the cosmos, a microcosm of the greater expanse of reality. Our story is one for us to write, for us to dream up, to fantasise about, to imagine, and finally to create from scratch. Unlimited pathways open up to us, when we believe in our dreams.

For too long, our innate knowledge of our magnificence has been suppressed. Now we are ready to dream up a new possibility, to take the first step to achieving alchemical results.

Whatever you can imagine for yourself is possible, when you take action. Open your eyes to the lessons of the cosmos, the whispers of the stars, the caress of the wind, the wisdom of the sunshine that feeds and nourishes our being. When you believe in your dream, your sense of self immediately expands. You become bigger than when you set out.

When you take the first step in search of your dream, each step is a little miracle along the road to your dream. Strangers will support you, people you never imagined will mysteriously appear before you to help you along the way. Spirit is moved by action. Spirit will support your dream.

The grander your vision, the more action will be required and the more support from spirit will be received. When we embark on a journey to achieve our dream, we literally and metaphysically move mountains in the cosmos. Lives are changed by our dream. We enroll advisers, helpers, guides, workers, servers, supporters. The greater our vision, the more we will start believing that spirit follows our thought, that matter and spirit are one and the same. All greatness has been achieved by believing boldly, by imagining the impossible, by taking the first step and each step that followed it never losing sight of the destination.

Leap into the unknown, take a journey within and open your eyes to new possibilities. There’s a hero within each of us, just waiting to be heard.

As we embark on the holiday season and new year 2015 awaits, I would like to take this opportunity to wish all our readers a safe and joyous and peaceful festive season.

This is our time. Our time to choose. Our time to flourish. Our time to take responsibility for our lives and our beloved planet.

We can be heroes.

My Life is My Message

posted by David G Arenson ND

gandhi“Rare is birth as a human being.

Hard is the life of mortals.”
“Do not let slip this opportunity.” ~ Dhammapada

Am I chasing MIRACLES? YES!!!! I want so many things – so many dreams for myself and the world.

My NAKED truth is that my life is my message, and that isn’t easy to accept.

I’ve spoken before about confronting oneself naked in the mirror – and learning to love what is. The spiritual intellect provides a context for compassion and understanding, yet often the challenge is in embodying these ideas, and going through the experiences life will no doubt hand out with equanimity. It is human to fall, and then come back, to go out of control before coming back into equilibrium to the middle way that is to be strived for.

In the winter months, I tend to hibernate more, and with age, many people experience their body shape changing. When I look in the mirror, I compare myself to what I looked like a couple of years’ back, and see something “less than.” It’s easy to feel good about oneself when the body feels in tune, and balanced. What if you’re sick or worse, debilitated? Then loving yourself becomes challenging and the gifts that the body usually gives, are less obvious. One of the paths to healing is to love all of it – the pain, the suffering, the grievance, the discomfort – choose to love it.

I find it easy to find imperfections with the world and get angry and upset about it. There is a lot of noise out there. As a sensitive person, I can easily feel victimized by life. I know I have a lot to contribute to the world, yet when I go out there, I often feel uneasy.

When I apply for jobs, I’m often met with little or no response. A lot of us have these experiences, not just me. It is easy to conclude that the world is a harsh and unloving place, and get frustrated.
 
So how does one become empowered and live at the cause and not the effect? I believe there are many answers – and it’s key to be aware that you may not be able to change the world. Yet always you can change yourself and the way you choose to see the world.

If nothing else, we can learn from our experiences. I can acknowledge that sometimes I need to reach the depths before I can climb myself out.

When there is no rain forest left, will the birds still sing?

If we create the world, then we should always look within for answers. When we see something outside of us in the world, ask what is it telling us about who we are?

If someone judges us, we are judging ourselves. If someone rejects us, we are rejecting ourselves.

If we want to experience love, then it is a state that we create through loving ourself and our experience. The world presents a mirror. These lessons are not easy to accept. It’s easier to blame others. I do it often. Now I promise myself to ask, “How did I create this – and how can I heal that part of me inside that created that?”

We can always expand our hearts and expand our love. Love is endless…All it requires is choosing it – choose love over war, love over anger, love over retaliation.


“Unless we view things with our heart, we can see nothing.”  — Daisaku Ikeda

When we have a grievance, how do we choose to react?
 
Perhaps it’s easier as a free spirit to grapple with these questions as we grow and age. Time is always moving, and life always changing.

We each have a place in existence – everyone has something to appreciate.

Gandhi provides an answer that really touches me deeply – “My life is my message.”


The biggest commitment I can make is to value myself.
 I always have the ability to choose my response. I choose this as my miracle!

Mindfulness: A dishwasher’s guide to life

posted by David G Arenson ND

800px-Punjabi_cook_and_dishwasher
“While washing the dishes one should only be washing the dishes. If while washing dishes, we think only of the cup of tea that awaits us, this hurrying to get the dishes out of the way as if they were a nuisance, then we are not alive during the time we are washing dishes.

The fact that we are here washing these bowls is a wondrous reality, a miracle of life.

If we can’t wash the dishes, the chances are we won’t be able to drink our tea either. While drinking the cup of tea, we willl only be thinking of other things, barely aware of the cup in our hands.

Thus we are sucked away into the future – and we are incapable of living one minute of life.”

~ Thich Nhat Hanh

Hand of God

posted by David G Arenson ND

hand of God via Amazon StudiosHave you ever met someone one day and bumped into them “randomly” the following day or soon thereafter? Or seen a word that answers a question you’ve been meditating on? Or found a strange connection appear before you out of the blue?

A voice from the Divine – or just co-incidence?

Recently, I’ve been dating someone who showed me her vision board, and on the top, she had unknowingly placed a cut-out of one of my articles from a local magazine, “Choosing Love.” I was speechless. She had no idea that it was written by me, as she had taken it from the front cover and didn’t even know I was an author.

Some stories I’ve heard recently…

Andy was searching for a copy of ‘The Alchemist’, a book she had lent to her cousin and it had got lost. That day her housemate was spring-cleaning the house, throwing out old books in a box and dropped off a copy of ‘The Alchemist’ on her desk, thinking she may like it.

Paulo was sitting at his computer writing an email when his cat Milo jumped onto his keyboard. On the screen, appeared the words “JFK”. Paulo had been studying John F Kennedy for a history project at college.

These seemingly random encounters seem to be “signs” that something significant is at work. Recently, many people have been acutely aware of synchronicity occurring in their lives. Let’s further explore the dance of synchronicity and what it may mean in our lives.

Synchronicity is a concept originally coined by Carl Jung to describe meaningful coincidences – the “acausal connecting principle” that links mind and matter and supersedes cause and effect. Many times in history, there has been a case of the simultaneous discovery of the same thing. This is well-documented in science.

500px-Schéma_synchronicité_in_EnglishI was first introduced to the concept of “synchronicity” years ago when I read James Redfield’s ‘The Celestine Prophecy.’ Redfield theorises that all coincidences are important because they direct the way to an unfolding of our personal destiny. In my personal experience, I have been through periods heavily influenced by the concept that synchronicity was meaningful. Many of the major events of my life have been guided by synchronicity – relationships beginning and ending, work, career paths, etc. I’ve had moments where I’ve been a Celestine prophecy “devotee” – seeing meaning in every event. I would caution people – there needs to be a caveat – not all synchronicities are meaningful!

I’ve come to see that not all coincidences and events in our lives mean something. Bumping into the postman when he’s delivering the mail, doesn’t necessarily mean anything beyond him doing his job, and you doing yours, and those events coinciding for a moment. The problem with relying too much on synchronicity is that it can take away your own free will or intention out of your life, and rely too much on “acts of God” – promoting reactivity (waiting for God) instead of promoting being proactive (taking action).

At least sometimes, one can search too hard for spiritual meanings in daily events which may really just be co-incidents. Since we live in a conscious universe, no events are actually accidental. However not all events are equally meaningful or significant.

The lines between synchronicity, precognition and clairvoyance are blurred. For example, ever thought of a friend, and then received a phone call from them, or seen them later on?

Just last week, I was chatting to a friend about catching up with her in the morning, and that night bumped into her at an isolated restaurant. How did that happen – of all the thousands of restaurants in Australia – how could we both end up at the same one – I wondered? Surely such an event is unlikely to occur by random chance. She later mentioned she had seen me walking in the park earlier. Maybe there was a message or transaction that we needed to communicate to each other, or perhaps our earlier communication had connected our energies and aligned our paths?

Synchronicity can hint at destiny, or it can come via dipping your feet into the divine matrix, or field of consciousness. Jung pointed to an underlying field of consciousness, which he called underlying connectedness. It can also be a message or sign sent from angelic beings or spirit guides, if you believe in those.

I recall the day after my grandmother dying seeing an old graceful lady waiting with me at a tram stop, and feeling that it was a message from my grandmother that she was with me still.

Synchronicity reveals an underlying pattern in the universe, a large guiding framework that organises our lives. It is also aligned to Jung’s concept of the collective unconscious. We are all part of the governing forcefield of imagination that governs our universe. As in – “All the world’s a stage, And all the men and women merely players.” (Shakespeare) Jung saw synchronicity broadly as a guiding supervision which underlies the whole of human experience and history.

― James Redfield, The Celestine Prophecy

Redfield’s seventh insight is - “Knowing our personal mission further enhances the flow of mysterious coincidences as we are guided toward our destinies.”

Having a clear idea of what we want to create in our lives, what we want our lives to be like encourages synchronicity. Synchronicity can hint at our life path, or remind us of where we are headed, or guide us to change direction. Synchronicity brings us relationships and love. There are so many stories of mysterious coincidences that bring two lovers together. Synchronicity brings gifts to be treasured.

Changing our frequency will change the people we attract into our lives. We are all communicating with the field of energy around us. Who we are being and how we are feeling affects this field.

Redfield’s eighth insight is “We can increase the frequency of guiding coincidences by uplifting every person that comes into our lives.” It is our responsibility to others to be awake and aware of the potential of each moment to touch and help another.

I have found that synchronicities occur when I am active in the world, and the more in the “zone” (in terms of awareness and conscioussness) I feel, the more frequently they occur. Expanding our awareness within the infinite sea of consciousness, is tapping into possibility. When you access this field of energy – call it the universal field or the divine matrix – you are tapping into a field which is loving, abundant, and in which nothing is impossible. Stress or unease breaks our natural communication with this field. Synchronicity requires being relaxed.

Synchronicity is about being awakened to the infinite possibilities available to us within the divine matrix of perception. Have fun with it, embrace it, and let it flow to you like the pure water of a spring. Allow the mystery to unfold. As the White Queen said to Alice, “It’s a poor sort of memory that only works backwards”. (Lewis Carroll)

Sound familiar – remind you of something? Perhaps it’s a synchronistic moment reading these words?

Be open to receive the wisdom of each moment as it unfolds.
