Old Baggage

It seems it’s pretty easy these days to become mired in the negativity that seems to be enveloping our planet.

I’ve heard from several sources that it’s simply the cycle of time when we and our planet are evolving … meaning that we’re breaking away from old paradigms in order to bring in the new. Is there anything “simple” about it this process? Personally, I don’t think so. 05.16.17baggageYou see, we’ve all got a lot of baggage … old issues we haven’t wanted to look at and heal, old programming from our parents who meant well but handed down the programming they received from their parents, etc. The list could go on and on and some days it sure does.

Maybe it’s time to look at that old baggage for what it really is … old baggage. Ask it what it’s trying to teach us. Once we know what it is, then maybe we can drop it and get on the train feeling a little lighter. I know that I can’t do this alone so I call on God to help me shine a light on the dark places.

I really want to leave my bags at the station. How about you?

Keep Calm and Smell a Rose

There seems to be a lot of “stuff” coming up for people these days.  I’m hearing more and more accounts of feelings, vibes, emotions, whatever we want to call them that are surfacing now. Is this an effort to discard any old baggage we might be carrying around with us?  Maybe from past incarnations? Maybe from this one? Are we getting signs from our Creator that this needs to happen … like NOW?

Whatever it is, it seems as though we are being urged by a powerful life force to let go of the old junk that’s renting space in our minds, hearts and souls.  We are one.  That I’m sure of.  What we give out is what we get back.  It may not happen immediately, but eventually it does.  I’m experiencing this in my own life and I wrote of it in a previous post about loading my boomerang.  I can make a conscious decision to load it with love and light or with something not quite so positive, like revenge, anger, hurt, guilt, etc.  I believe more and more of us humans are here to make more conscious choices now.  Rather than do things, think things, say things or feel things out of old hurtful habits, we can choose to see any situation differently and react (or not) from a different place. I’m one who often has to remind myself that, in any given situation, I can choose to slow down and think about how I want to respond instead of an instantaneous reaction.  We can’t take our words back; they either hurt or they heal.  When we come from a place of separation (our ego), we have the power to hurt.  When we come from a place of unity (our heart), we have the power to heal. It’s that simple. It’s the learning to live from your heart that’s the hard part.  But we’d better start sooner than later.

Life unfolds like a flower.  We are transitioning into a new dimension; a paradigm shift.  We are awakening. We are not victims; we are the lightworkers. Some say that we had a pre-birth agreement to incarnate at this time, to be part of the transition in unison with our beloved planet – the jewel of the Universe – to accompany her to a new level of being, in harmony with all that is.  Some say we stood in line to get this chance. Kind of like American Idol.  Well, maybe that’s not the right analogy 🙂

What courageous souls we are to be living in this time of duality – the dark in contrast with the light – when we have a myriad of choices and are part of this – the awakening of all of humanity.  Hold on to your hats; it’s going to be such a fun ride!

When I look at a flower, I see life, hope, beauty, kindness, birth, freedom … all the good things in life. Keep calm and smell the flowers. Give yourself a bouquet today.
