We create the world we experience through our thoughts and words and actions. If we don’t like what we are experiencing, we need to make changes within ourselves. That’s both a huge responsibility and a great power.
What kind of reality are you weaving for yourself?
Because I’m retired, I can control what I do and who I see and how I spend my time. As negativity and destructive action expand on our planet, I spend a lot of time alone. To change my life experience, I must go within and start weaving the reality that I want to live in.
Begin with your inner work
My spiritual practice continues to expand. That’s one way I know to shift my reality. I add and subtract and explore. My spiritual practice is alive and fluid.
I do meditative shamanic journeying every day. I set an intention for guidance or insight or healing or…whatever calls to me…and I go within to my Sacred Garden and talk to the helping spirits who show up as metaphors for me to interpret. Sometimes I talk to an element like water or air; other times it’s an animal form, or wee folk, or angels, or teachers in human form. I’ve been doing shamanic journeying for several years and always find the answers and guidance I seek.
I work with stones, the energy of the over 150 rocks and crystals I have collected over the years that fill most surfaces in my home. I hold them and listen to their messages and accept their healing energy.
I use sound to assist me in the weaving of my new reality – instrumental, vocal, chanting, mantras. I have a wonderful flute, a ceremonial rattle, a singing bowl, a handbell, my voice. I select what calls to me in the moment. Sound sets up a vibration that resounds and reaches your innermost places.
I develop new mindful breathing practices to align my chakras and balance the flow of energy in my body.
And I try to move through my day with gratitude and awareness.
There are many paths we can take to weave our new reality.
Monitor how we interact with others
I watch my reactions to my world and strive to balance them and keep them in a space of unconditional love.
I am working to recognize the sameness I hold with others, rather than our differences. Some people are easier to do that with than others. Our disagreements may simply stem from the difference between those who are willing to experiment and go adventuring, and those who are not.
I seek out the few people who are on a path similar to mine. And I walk beside them for a while. I find those spiritual friends through courses I take and events I attend that are focused on my own passion. (See The Shift Network and Sound True)
Find a like-minded person who allows you both to grow and enrich each other as you walk in parallel paths as for long as you are going in a similar direction.
Self-responsibility is the cornerstone of weaving your own path of stewardship
You create/attract/accept/encourage/reject everything that comes your way. Good and bad. The obstacles you perceive are there to help you learn something – what you really want, how to move ahead in the face of adversity. We constantly learn. Life is about one lesson after another, one choice that leads to another and guides the direction you take and where you end up.
You. Your awareness. Your choices. Your decisions. Your ignoring of signals. Your exploration of new options. You. You are the weaver of your path. You are the weaver of your reality.
Visualize what is possible
What would it look like to live in a community where everyone was thoughtful and kind and supportive?
I’ve been trying to visualize a compassionate world, where one is for all and all for one. And then the imbalance of reality steps in and I struggle to hold an image of cooperation and equality and well-being for all. That’s not what seems to be here on this planet at the present time. So I have to go live beyond the planet in the invisible realms, the inner realms and learn to live in unconditional love there. Then I can bring that love into the earth reality to share it with others.
Does that mean I stay unconscious of the world around me? No, but I’m distancing myself from negative news and looking for the creative innovations and kind deeds people are doing. I watch creative people find innovative solutions to the problems of the earth. I focus on the ideas that hold promise rather than feeling overwhelmed by the unconsciousness surrounding the harm being done to our planet. If I didn’t, I would feel very, very helpless.
There seems to be more of them than there are of us transformational thinkers, light beings, consciousness raisers. But we have great power, and the collective consciousness is changing, one enlightened light-worker at a time.
Consensus energy is powerful energy, positive energy is powerful energy. Those of us who are aware of our connection with one source energy, our integration as a unified light body, are coming together in that consciousness to weave a new reality for those who want to join us.
Some can see the light within themselves. Many cannot.
We weave this new reality for those who can see it
When we undertake to increase the power and reach of our light, others see us and begin to recognize that same light within themselves. People simply have to look for the light within themselves to find our common light and when they do, all they have to do to change their life is to allow it to be their driving force.
The layer of light thickens
My journey to the invisible realms often begins by experiencing myself in a black void as a single white light floating in the Great Nothingness. There is often a Helping Spirit with me. Gradually other lights appear and we flow together until we become a huge mass of unconditional love and healing light covering the planet.
Anyone who looks within at their own light can see us and join us. Anyone, anywhere. Their choice. Their experience. Their shift.
So the light deepens and broadens and thickens as it covers our planet. The energy is powerful and reaches many hearts. But not all. So we, we transformational thinkers, we change makers, we work on our inner worlds to strengthen our own light vibration and then we spend a lot of time radiating out unconditional love to the world and its people and all of nature.
And that makes a difference
