In the process of reaching Self Mastery, we are continuously faced with lessons leading us back to internal critiques of self. It is wise to approach this critique with mercy, grace, compassion, and ultimately ‘love’ for ourselves. The direct action of viewing our own shortcomings and/or trauma from a place of self-love enables us to identify and transform (alchemize) before we project them unto others. There are subtleties and nuances around how we access our sub-conscious thoughts and behaviors, so it helps to have a conscious alchemy “tool kit.”
To grow, shift, and change our Being, we must dig deep and find courage to face our shortcomings/trauma, even if they are not of our own making. We task ourselves with a second step in mastery which is forgiveness, first of self (remembering mercy, grace, and compassion,) and then others in the same manner. Choosing to go this path is a brave one when so many humans merely exist without any awareness of their conscious tool kit. I refer to this as ‘autopilot’ mode, the default operating system within the body that responds to shortcomings/trauma, in all sorts of forms and can be quite dangerous. From unhealthy self talk, to coping addictions, to causing external verbal, psychological, and physical harm to others, unconscious living has risks with unknown variables and if extreme patterns continue, the individuals often a significantly more painful experience to draw them out of the pattern entirely. Those who are conscious of patterns, and the pain of shortcomings/trauma often make an effort to not consciously harm others, afflicting pain directly on themselves instead. It is the lowest of the vibrational energy forms and, if not recognized, may result in ending ones own life.
Now, I don’t wish to take people down a path of despair, I wish to inspire and empowering individuals to know they are loved by a Divine Creator, and regardless of their issues, recognition patterns and behaviors so they can heal themselves. I think it is important to know there are common misconceptions humans may have around this ‘critiquing’ of ones own shortcomings and trauma. Much ‘collective’ judgment exists around common historical terms like ‘evil’ and ‘sin’ in relation to our human faults. I will point out that although I was raised Catholic, and explored Christianity my entire life, I consider myself a child of the Divine, and will forever hold Christ’s teachings deep within my being but I believe there is more to the “truths” many of us were force fed through memorizing doctrine. It is important to note Christ lived in a time where a hierarchy of masculine entities sought to control reality out of fear and that his life and teachings were to provide Extra-Worldly Higher Guidance direct from the Divine Source, whereas priests and holy men held worldly views. Christ was against the worldly teachings and sought to unite through Love. His teachings were given in Aramaic, and in His culture and language ‘these terms ‘evil’ and ‘sin’ quite literally meant to miss the target or mark because it was in reference to archery, and in Hebrew ‘sin’ means “missing the mark.” “Missing the mark” in life’s causes a separation from the course of Love you set on with Divine, however, it is the judgment of the human precipitating the guilt and shame. Trusting the Divine Source of Love is unending and provides the courage to face all challenges which arise on our human journey and our dedication to correct the path of the ‘missed marks’ through forgiveness, mercy, grace, and compassion are all that are needed to heal anything in this lifetime and for generations to come.
A daily practice of energetically checking in with Divine Source and our human vessel will serve as part of the conscious ‘tool kit,’ and includes any or all of the following; prayer time, meditation, mantras, creative expression, nature observation, physical exercise and so much more. In particular, I will focus on a meditative practice walking through our energy centers located directly within our human body, the Chakra Channel. Becoming attuned to the vibration and frequencies in each of your body’s systems and connecting (plugging it into your emotional and spiritual bodies, as well) to Divine Source to discern where you are ‘missing the mark.’
I have attached a downloadable PDF meditation to use as a tool for checking in with yourself. I will update and add an audio file in the future. For more information on the Chakra system and how it can provide insight into your wellbeing, stay tuned to my blog posts and social media sites for posts linked to evolution and expansion of your Human, your Spirit, and your Soul!
As always, BE well and…”In all you say and all you do, simply BE authentically YOU! ~ Tammy
Are you still searching for a purpose? Do you wonder how to navigate this incredible chaos we have been witnessing for months now? It has been chaotic for decades, we have grown accustomed to a life of fight or flight. A life of forced consent to mass influence and malicious leadership, picking the”lesser of 2 evils.” To systems that seem to be designed to divide our world by labels and judgement. To adhering to personal beliefs in spite of the nasty criticism. To questioning our own morals and values based on a scale that seems to be going backwards. You are not alone, I too, felt like this. It is time to be heard. It is a time to share. It is a time to be compassionate and careful not to judge one against the other. It is a communion of souls who are tired of working for a common goal that doesn’t align with their beliefs and truths. I can tell you this will fall by the wayside when you engage your uniqueness. That is why I have used the term Be-You-tiful for years now. It is important to love and find that beauty within. See, the thing is, you are not meant to be like the others. You have your own light to shine for humanity. You ARE called for more. I will be posting more regularly about this. This is my calling, to share what I’ve been receiving in prayer and meditation for years, and have only understood those messages for the past few months. It is time to step into your own, Be-you-tiful Ones, open your eyes and do not fear anymore!
I had a glimmer of my truth in 2017. At a time when many of my immediate family members were not with me here on Earth and I spent time wondering, what now? I had utilized my energy outwardly for so many years, since my early twenties, on everyone else that I simply lost touch with me. So many of us are on this hamster wheel of life without much regard for the “why.” Much of humanity is searching for a purpose, a love, a truth to hold on to and sustain. It is without a doubt in the teachings of Christianity that I learned to engage in a life of love and light. Systems beyond our control have been attempting, and succeeding in many cases, to hijack our ability to access our higher consciousness. Systems set in place thousands of years ago that are still rooted among us. Make no doubt that when you discover the ability exists within yourself to seek the One who designed this higher spirit within your human existence, you will experience love, be joyful and experience a peace like no other. It is within that search you will discover your calling and your truth.
To break it down simply, think about the first thing all of us on Earth experienced when we left our mother’s body for the first time. Breath. We inhale our surroundings. This very practice brings you to the only place you need to search for. That Love that created you (Whether you believe that to be your parents, specifically, or you extend it to God/Higher Source/Creator) is accessible from within. It is our responsibility to go within and discover the very person we were created to be. Not that of which our upbringing, surroundings or circumstances added to the blueprint of our life. Those are all additional traits.
To explain this in a simpler manner I will reference a game. The designer (Creator) has determined the main goal of the game. That designer may have associates whose job it is to develop certain aspects of the game (i.e. demographic, theme, character development, etc). Further the game design by the influence of the characters. What the character personality is, what their agenda/goal is, what tools or special ‘powers’ they may have, all providing influence in how a person navigates the game. Now the player has ability to choose their character which often comes with a preset program and navigate the game with those skills and level up by performing specific tasks. We can view this as our childhood, the basis of how we begin to view our surroundings and adapt within the confines of the protection or lack thereof in that current environment with parents/guardians, close family members, perhaps religious affiliations and friends of family. All a relatively small circle of influence
Now the next level in the game would represent elementary school age where we are exposed to new surroundings and new people of influence and peers. We learn to navigate a new space developing new skills along the way. Much of life programming at this time is social skills within the confines of a regimented space with still small circles of influence. Expanding our person in developing cognitive and coping skills based on personal and external judgement of that which we are engaged in. Enter standardized testing, “grading” based on peer development and averages, none of which promote personal growth from a place within, its mostly exterior by this point. (Ever wonder why children seem to fall short, perhaps we can view the system as putting them in a position with lack of understanding the actual systems that are in place.
The first few levels of the game are pretty basic, following a preset program and maybe adding a special tool or power along the way. Let’s, for example, say that you come from a home where there is ongoing responsibility and social activity. You have learned new skills to navigate the predetermined program in the game and can level up faster than your friend who may not have the same types of skills. Is this a “bad thing?” Is it fair to “judge” yourselves equally? In this circumstance, I think most people would say they would not place judgment, just understand that there is a difference between individuals upbringing and circumstances. Some may even go so far as to extend this knowledge or special skill to their friend to help them advance. Human nature is that of love, understanding and expansion of those skills.
Moving onto “level 6 or 7.” This is where most children would enter the middle school age or ‘tween’ years. More independence is sought as skills grow and change. Now, in the game you can choose to complete “special tasks” to advance your characters skills even further. In life this may be youth groups, sports, music, organizations such as “Scouts” or “4-H” (in my mid-west communities), community organizations, etc. All of these would develop specific sets of skills further ‘advancing’ ones character that will change the way you play the game and ultimately, the outcome of the game. We can start to understand the perspective that societal differences may significantly play a role in how we develop skill sets. This doesn’t make it right or wrong, we just play the game with the skills we have. We maintain the ability to share with peers how to navigate the game with our skills, it simply becomes more difficult as we age to do this as our game course is established, in a sense, and we may have to undo a task/s and reapply the new skill knowledge to promote more quickly in the game.
I’m going to interject some thoughts at this point for you to ponder till my next blog post that will continue on this subject. Can you start to see a trend in how our Creator had the best intentions for us at the very start, but how quickly entering this world puts us in a place of influence out of our control? As I continue on this topic, you may further understand the analogy of the game. It is very clear to me that I’ve been chosen/anointed/blessed with gifts of artistic spiritual expression and a voice the ability to open hearts by sharing using both of these sacred gifts from the Divine. I expect my gifts to be different from yours, as we are all unique. We all have our own truths creating millions of them worldwide. Embracing that difference and knowing we all are correct in our own truths is a result of trusting the process of listening to the Creator. Once we acknowledge our gifts from the Divine we can access how to acquire the skills necessary for carrying out our purpose in humanity.
Peace and Blessings to all you Be-You-tiful humans, I love you where you are at. ~ Tammy
