Taking Down the Pedestal

pedestal-carry-finalIt happens to everyone; people put others on a pedestal for various reasons. For me, it all comes down to one reason; I was looking for something outside of myself that I felt I could not be myself. Notice what I said: I could not BE myself. It happens all the time in the spiritual community. And it may not be one sided; the person on the pedestal, consciously or unconsciously, knows they are on it and some want to keep it that way.

I did this with girlfriends. Without someone who loves me, I wasn’t complete. I did this with my mother; she’s always right because she yells the loudest. That may not seem like a reason to put someone on a pedestal, but when you’re young, there are no requirements for this. It just happens. My mother was one of those where the person felt they should be on the pedestal. Why? “Because I’m the mother, that’s why!” That’s what I mean by yelling the loudest. Why did she yell loudly? Because she is exclusively externally validated.

What I’ve realized about myself is I’ve taken people off of the pedestal, but the pedestal remained. When I’ve taken people off, there is a pull away from that person. Usually this has been precipitated by a blow up that confuses me. I try to figure out what is going on while my ego is also trying to grab the ground it feels is rightly its own. But I focus on the conversation and what’s being said because the other persons’ ego is doing the same thing. I ask honest questions and unwittingly aggravate the situation and feel more confused by it.

An unconscious message I received from my mother was that I am responsible for other peoples’ feelings. If I upset anyone, it’s my job to make them feel better along with fixing the situation. That’s where this all comes from. When this situation is happening, I am being the mirror to the other and the other is getting more and more upset with me for reflecting back what they’ve said and I get confused. That’s my part of keeping this going is the confusion because I keep asking questions based on what was said and what was said was ego based and doesn’t hold up under questioning.

I have been on the other side of this fence many times also. It’s not a pleasant experience when I calm down, and it would feed my big sense of unworthiness at that time. It said, “See? See what happens when you talk about how you feel and it’s upsetting to someone else?” How I felt was never taken into consideration at all… and what that can do is create someone who doesn’t care about anyone’s feelings because the message is “emotions are too painful.”

This year (2016) I had some soreness in my left wrist and the top of my arm. Nothing happened to make it so, it just slowly showed up. I would do yoga and realize there were positions I had a harder time doing because of my wrist. I also realized my balance seemed to be worse than I remember it. Doing the Tree position was always a challenge, but I had gotten better at it. Suddenly, it seemed I really couldn’t hold it even for the brief time I had been able to. I couldn’t stop wobbling. The same with the Warrior Two movements; those I never had a balance issue until this time.

So, with all of the above in the background, I had another back-and-forth with a close friend. This wasn’t the first one, but it was a side I started to see more of with this person and the same scenario above played itself out. When this happens, I have the hardest time letting it go until I feel I understand the whole thing. I let myself get locked into a loop. A day later, after unplugging from it by doing something for myself, it came into focus; I had this person still on a pedestal. I say still because I was already aware I had done that, but I thought I had taken care of it. I hadn’t, so I did right then in meditation.

I realized not only did I have this person on a pedestal, but also I was holding the pedestal up. Why would I create a pedestal and not be the one to hold it up? It’s mine so I’m going to hold it. Picture that; there is someone on a pedestal, under them is the pedestal (I always pictured it as a solid marble Roman column), under that is me holding both up. Not only did I put myself under the person, but also I am under the pedestal, which is also my creation. I am below my own creation. The pedestal deserves more than I give myself because it holds the person who “makes” me feel better about myself. But the old patterns still apply; if that person “makes” me feel bad, it’s their responsibility to “make” me feel good, right? For me: yes and no. Yes because of the pattern, but no because I am unworthy to feel good because I have “made” people feel bad in the past, so, in the long run, no.

I have done this with women most throughout my life, and this case was no different. The next morning I put it together that maybe the soreness in my wrist and arm was because I was holding up a person and a pedestal and it made sense since the left is the feminine side. I went into meditation and removed the person and the pedestal. The next day I did a couple of exercises that used my wrist and upper arm and they were not sore at all. I did Tree and Warrior Two and my balance was like I remembered it.

What is striking about this is the soreness I had felt for months on and off. I felt it was telling me this is coming to the surface. By being aware of it for months, it would be in the forefront of my consciousness when the reason for it being there came up. It also pointed out to me what I was being shown all along but avoided seeing until now: The reason this kept happening was because I wasn’t fully aware I kept doing it. Each time it happened was a chance to change it and I never took it until now because I didn’t feel worthy enough to totally rely on myself for what I always looked for outside of me: completeness, wholeness and unconditional love of myself. I will say the soreness didn’t completely disappear initially, though it was less sore. It would come and go but not as much or often. Sometimes it can take a little time to work itself out while I’m still meditating on what came up. As I write this, I don’t think about it as much because I no longer vibrate at that frequency.

Things were sorted out between my friend and I. We each looked within ourselves and dealt with whatever was being shown to us. We didn’t need to talk about it afterwards. Now rather than having only two points marked ‘black’ and ‘white’, I’ve allowed the full color spectrum and relationship to exist anywhere on that line. The reason the only choices were black and white was because of the void I looked to be filled by someone else. Either you did it or you didn’t. And the reason it always failed was I never said to that person, “I am looking for someone to fill this. Will you be that person?” It was all internal and the other had no idea it was happening. Actually, they usually did have a feeling, all the way to a knowing it was happening, as did I except when I was submerged in it. I now live on an infinite continuum rather than two confined points. The only way I can achieve that is to allow myself to be anywhere on the continuum.

What brought these experiences to me was the energy of the pedestal. It brought people to me, not to fill the void I felt I had, but to make me aware of the pedestal itself so that I would consciously remove it. The whole process was agreed upon at a higher level. What’s important to me is my end of it and how I feel based on living my truth. As long as I know I am in that, that’s all there is. And it’s the same for the other person but their truth may not sync up with mine. How can truth not sync up with itself? The more you delve into details, the more ego is involved. But someone can still disagree with someone else about something and still be living their truth. On a higher level, the truth is about something more broad and expansive. Just because we disagree on something doesn’t mean we don’t love each other. That’s the bigger truth. It does sync up with someone else’s truth because it’s the same truth. The higher you go, the more truth syncs up with itself because there are fewer of them. The lower you go, the less it does. And what looks like a disagreement on the lower level may be a higher-level thing playing itself out. For me, it’s living my truth and allowing a disagreement to exist between another and myself and continuing to love that person and myself. That was baffling to me because the shock I absorbed when I was young was, “You agree with me on everything regardless of whatever else I do or say.” That’s where all the mirror questions would come from and they were scary to say because there was always ‘consequences.’ An intense energy coming at me in the form of “Accept what I am saying and stop questioning me,” which is merely showing the lack of self-worth from the other and myself because if it’s in my reality, I asked for it to be there for a reason.

It is an amazing lesson to finally learn. The more you resist becoming aware of the lessons you ask to learn before incarnating, the more intense they are going to come to you until you get it. It may make an exciting story, but it is not needed. We don’t need to learn lessons by intense situations. That energy can be better spent moving more freely and progressing your soul. At the end of your life, you could be at the 600-mile marker or have gone so far that you went off the planet and don’t need to come back. You achieved all. And that choice is unique to everyone.

The Magical Moment

A moment in time, is just a minute of magic.

For this is where it all begins–all of creation—in this moment.
It’s the inception point, the genesis of origination.
Of a thought, an idea, a concept, a dream.
It’s the platform of blastoff …to limitlessness and form.

The moment leads to the beautiful dawn, and something spectacular takes shape.
In advance of our dreams, in advance of our imagination.
There is formulating something new….the silent aurora of creativity.

Within our hopes, within our desires,
The invisible comes to life.
What lies within us also lies beyond us and around us,
and leads us to wakening the vibration of vision.

Creation begins with trust. With trusting this moment.
Surrendering to this moment and watching it unfold.
It may be invisible, it may seem intangible.
But what’s formulating is much, much more than what meets the eye.
What’s happening is magical and wondrous… for energy follows thought.
It may seem like a bubble, a fancy, it’s a pipe dream.
If we just let go and let be….the vibration will continue and it will take form.
The magic takes over….and a miracle occurs. Fantasy becomes reality.

For in our whims of creative thought, in our vagary of perceptions,
Lies a deeper truth, a hidden concept of infallibility.
It’s our true self waiting to emerge, wanting to unfold.
Our dream self–our higher self–which is actually our AUTHENTIC self,
Bursts out in joy and enthusiasm….in the revival of our IS-ness.
Awakening our truths, awakening our origins, awakening our Magic within.

From this awakening follows innate understanding.
Energy dances and energy glows.
Rainbows become gold…wishes become butterflies.
Sparks become waterfalls….dreams become castles.
It’s an inside job. From the inside out.
The vibration of vision….wow, what possibilities to the people.
Remarkable manifestations that began in a moment. A moment in time.

For what we discover, we knew all along……
We are Divine Creators and we are Divine Creation. This truth is in our heart of hearts and soul of souls.
It’s an infinite truth. We knew it all along, but chose to forget.
Now we choose to awaken….we choose to remember.
It’s a path of excitement and freedom….. imagination and flow.
There is magic on the path and we knew it all along! We felt it! It was Grand, it was Complete.

We accept, we embrace, and we allow…..all that is igniting within.
We own it, we become one with it. Now, it’s time for the next moment.
To spring into action. To live our new creation. It’s exciting, it’s invigorating, it’s amazing.
One moment leads to the next…a Conscious Creative Cycle…and it continues to flow….

Endless possibilities, hopes, and dreams.
We are the CREATORS. We are limitless. We are eternal.
The moment goes on and the magic is clear.
Awareness of the moment leads to the vibration of vision.
What will you do with YOUR Magical Moment?
A moment in time, a minute of MAGIC.

If Nothing Else on Your Spiritual Journey, Do Just ONE THING…

“Just ONE Thing…” from City Slickers, 1991, by Castle Rock Entertainment

In the movie “City Slickers,” the character Curly holds up one finger and tells Mitch that the secret of life is “one thing”… So, on that note… I’m going to tell you that on our individual spiritual journey, all that really, really matters is JUST ONE THING.

What is that, you ask? Chanting, dancing, hanging upside down facing north on a full moon? Wearing foil antennae on your head during a thunderstorm?

Well, those are options, if you so choose; but there really is only ONE requirement: looking within, to the heart of your Being, to find the Divine… because that’s the ONLY place where you will truly find it and KNOW it.

It truly IS that simple. However, our Earth-bound, 3D-level egos have done a great job at convincing us otherwise; part of the purpose of this existence has been to explore the illusion of duality as a rule – in its simplest form, the perception of “me” and “not me.” With that, we’ve had an exemplary run of it… so much so, that we have completely disempowered ourselves via externalizing the idea of “God” (or Source, Creator, Spirit… any one of a number of terms we use for the ultimate Divine) into a figurehead that, opposite to how many belief systems claim, we have created in our physical, 3D image, vs. the other way around! By choice, we’ve allowed the self-consciousness of our Divinity to be taken from us by the ego; beyond that, in many instances, we’ve even fooled ourselves (as part of the experience) into believing that only a “very special” select few of us can even speak directly with that figurehead.

Yet, many of those in written history who were considered prophets and/or the enlightened – including Jesus Christ, and many others –  spoke openly about how the key to finding the Divine is actually by going within ourselves.

From the very beginning of my active spiritual journey, when I “fell open like a book,” I instinctively began to meditate. I didn’t really know much about what I was doing in the beginning; somehow I just KNEW that was a way to become more clear. And, as I worked with those teachers I’d strategically placed in my life to be there when I needed them, all that was repeated to me was, meditate, meditate, meditate! Clear the chatter of the mind to get the TRUE answers! As I did, I was able to do that… and then what I call the “Expanded Universe” came through, loud and clear. And the key message? Look within, through the heart, for ALL of the answers… because we not only know all of it, but we’re a PART of it. We have so many levels of our own consciousness that are able to see/remember the whole playing field, the whole plan, and what we’ve aspired to accomplish that we’re falling short by limiting ourselves listening only to the ego (while it runs the mind), which pretty much makes its decisions based on what it can see, here on the physical, 3D “playing board”… via many resistant, ego-based emotions such as fear, anxiety, regret, resentment, anger, guilt, doubt, pain, and sorrow.

When I start working with someone who wants to tap in to their intuition and their Divine abilities – which, as a reminder, since we are ALL part of the Divine, we ALL have (no more excuses of “I’m about as psychic as a rock…”) – the very first thing we work on is the exploration of what method(s) of quieting the mind works for them. It doesn’t have to be four hours of sitting in lotus position and facing a wall; everyone has their own tendencies and preferences. So, it’s not as important to dictate a specific way of doing so as it is to find what works! The second step is to help teach discernment of the voice of the ego, the voice of the Higher Self, the voice of the ultimate I AM/Divine, and the voice of others, such as spirits, guides, etc. At the very, very, VERY least, we work on being able to ask the Higher Self/Divine, via the Highest Divine Truth, if ________________ is THEIR Truth, and if it is the highest and best for them at the time of asking. That alone is crucial!

Why, you might ask? Well… look at the multitude of different channelings and perspectives out there about what’s going on in the evolution process, about what’s going on in the world, what’s important spiritually… and you know what? No matter WHO provides the information, it’s important to be able to discern if it is the Highest Divine Truth, and if it is the Highest and Best for the individual. What’s important for you and your journey might not be so important for me and mine, and vice versa. If we can simply ask and trust that we get a clear, unbiased answer without the ego intervening, we’ve now empowered ourselves to trust in the connection  to our own Divinity within. And that’s all we really need… REALLY!

As I’ve said, there are many, many ways to open the door. What’s most awesome about Trinity Energy Progression™ is that it helps the individual leap-frog into opening the internal channel to the Divine voice within, because entrainment to its remembrance starts to quickly clear the path to our own Christ Consciousness. In using it regularly, it  melds all of the energies we’ve segregated within us throughout this existence, as well as the different versions of us and levels of our consciousness. Using Trinity regularly in meditation dissolves all of the partitions we’ve created within ourselves – including the realization and full balance of our own masculine, feminine, and creation energies – so we’re always strongly connected to the Higher Self.
