Energy Oracle Cards: 14. Caring Connections
I have really felt very much supporting energy the last few days!
"be on the lookout for new connections presenting themselves. The relationships you already share may become more intimate, purposeful, or present at this time. Notice the opportunities to forge new or deeper bonds."
The Answer is Simple: 59. Spread the Light (reversed)
"Your spirit is powerful and inspirational, and it can even heal those around you." One of the most potent healing acts of Spirit is to witness and acknowledge its light in others. Look around and notice those who's in need of being seen. Notice those whose light of Spirit is dim or at risk of going out, and reignite their fire with your recognition. Tell the others that you love their Spirit. Don't be afraid to speak this out loud."
"Today you are called to be a healer."
Today I have really felt the energy of support, and much of my inner capacity to shine, see Spirit and 'heal' (spread light) - but this in-between heavy streaks of doubt, fear, physical tension and anxiety (reversed). With other words: I've encountered the "upper-limit problem" frequently during the day. After each wave of supporting energy and inner light, my Frightful Parts tremble, doubt and want to limit the cheerfulness - and some others bring their boards and want to surf on them.
It has been a very educative and inspiring day - soul. detachment and intuitive-wise.
Today Eckhart Tolle has been the soothing companion in my ears!
"The primary cause of unhappiness is never the situation, but you thoughts about it. Be aware of the thoughts you are thinking." (Eckhart Tolle, A New Earth: Awakening to Your Life's Purpose)
When energy of happiness pour up from The Source, my Frightened Parts immediately starts to analyse it, put names on things, doubt it, feel unworthy of it, etc., etc. They just can't let things BE - it's like they have to DO something with the energy..!
This I've been experiencing today.
Which gave me an excellent opportunity to just stop engaging in the thoughts.
Back off, and practising "not being my thoughts" - and instead detach and becoming "the watcher/witness of the thoughts"!
"Rather than being your thoughts and emotions, be the awareness behind them."
"Life isn't as serious as my mind makes it out to be."
(Eckhart Tolle, A New Earth: Awakening to Your Life's Purpose)
Detach, watch and accept!
"If uncertainty is unacceptable to you, it turns into fear. If it is perfectly acceptable, it turns into increased aliveness, alertness, and creativity."
"I recommend that you experiment with this from time to time. For example, when someone criticizes you, blames you, or calls you names, instead of immediately retaliating or defending yourself - do nothing. Allow the self-image to remain diminished and become alert to what that feels like deep inside you. For a few seconds, it may feel uncomfortable, as if you had shrunk in size. Then you may sense an inner speciousness that feels intensely alive. You haven't been diminished at all. In fact, you have expanded. You may then come to an amazing realization: When you are seemingly diminished in some way and remain in absolute non-reaction, not just externally but also internally, you realize that nothing real has been diminished, that through becoming "less," you become more. When you no longer defend or attempt to strengthen the form of yourself, you step out of identification with form, with mental self-image. Through becoming less (in the ego's perception), you in fact undergo an expansion and make room for Being to come forward. True power, who you are beyond form, can then shine through the apparently weakened form. This is what Jesus means when he says, "Deny yourself" or "Turn the other cheek."
"You don't have to wait for something "meaningful" to come into your life so that you can finally enjoy what you do. There is more meaning in joy than you will ever need. The "waiting to start living" syndrome is one of the most common delusions of the unconscious state."
