Русская матрешка (Russian Nesting Dolls)

Image

“We’re every age at once and tucked inside ourselves like Russian Nesting Dolls.” (Watsky, Tiny Glowing Screens)

We all have many parts to ourselves, each representing a different piece to the puzzle.

Sometimes the littler one comes out and wants to play, do a somersault and be free in the magic of childhood.

Sometimes the bigger one comes out and takes control, like the strong presence that it was inherently born to be.

Different environments bring out a variety of  sizes, personalities and character traits.

Be gentle with yourself and notice the *PATTERNS*.

The goal is not to get rid of any of these parts but to LOVE them each fully in their individual glory.

They are all hidden within you coming out unexpectedly and embarrassingly at times.

Don’t let your adult persona fool you into thinking that all those younger,  innocent and vulnerable  parts of yourself have disappeared into oblivion. You haven’t grown out of them, you have just added new layers to yourself.  They are still a part of who you are today.

Be ready, be open. The sum of the parts carry the whole. Each takes care of the other, like a  tight-knit family. Embrace them lovingly and fully, for they are  slices of your illustrious soul.

 

Love, *Katherine*

Schools *Kill Creativity* by Sir Ken Robinson

Why don’t we get the best out of people? Sir Ken Robinson argues that it’s because we’ve been educated to become good workers, rather than creative thinkers. Students with restless minds and bodies — far from being cultivated for their energy and curiosity — are ignored or even stigmatized, with terrible consequences. “We are educating people out of their creativity,” Robinson says. It’s a message with deep resonance. Robinson’s TEDTalk has been distributed widely around the Web since its release in June 2006. The most popular words framing blog posts on his talk? “Everyone should watch this.” (ted.com)

“Sex at Dawn,” but with *whom*?

“Pay attention to whom you share your intimate energy with. Intimacy at this level intertwines your aural energy with the aural energy of the other person. These powerful connections, regardless of how insignificant you think they are, leave spiritual debris, particularly within people who do not practice any type of cleansing, physical, emotional or otherwise. The more you interact intimately with someone, the deeper the connection and the more of their aura is intertwined with yours.

Imagine the confused aura of someone who sleeps with multiple people and carries around these multiple energies? What they may not realize is that others can feel that energy which can repel positive energy and attract negative energy into your life.” (Mind Unleashed)

Are you sharing energies with someone who gives you good energetic vitality back or are they weighing your frequency down? Are they enhancing your life experience or depleting it? You are basically carrying this person’s energy around with you everywhere you go … Be mindful!

Love,

*Katherine*

wake up with the Sun

and set your intention for the Day

the fabric of your being

will light the Fire within

and the vibrational energy outside

will match the output of your heart’s will and desire

to overcome 

and climb the internal Mountain.   -KTR

He who binds to himself a joy
Does the winged life destroy;
But he who kisses the joy as it flies
Lives in eternity’s sun rise.  – William Blake

Be an *observer* of the beautiful things that come into your life.

Don’t try to desperately hold on … It’s like trying to grasp onto sand … the more you try to hold onto it, the faster it spills out of your hands.

Enjoy the beauty, the experience. Don’t try to possess, just let BE, in all of its glory.

Your Mind is like a *Garden* …..

Do you want it to look like this?Image

Or, like this?

Beautiful Flower Garden Wallpapers (6)url-22

You choose! *Cultivate* that beautiful mind of yours through daily habits and discipline that are going to serve your future Self in a beautiful way. Your mind is the environment that you are exposed to on a daily basis. How do you feel in this environment? Are your thoughts feeding your garden like fertilizer or killing your plants like toxic pesticides? Do others want to come spend time in your garden or are they running in the opposite direction, like a bat out of hell?

It’s all up to you and how YOU choose to live your life!

What’s one thing you can do today to plant the seeds and pull out the weeds?

Love,

*Katherine*

“Don’t go outside your house to see the flowers. My friend, don’t bother with that excursion. Inside your body there are flowers. One flower has a thousand petals. That will do for a place to sit. Sitting there you will have a glimpse of beauty inside the body and out of it, before gardens and after gardens.” -Kabir

Shifting *Perspective*

Image

Do you remember those 3-D books that were popular when we were kids? Well, in order to see the mysterious pop-out image, you had to learn to shift your eyes in order to truly See. I remember spending hours and hours desperately trying to unlock the secret image from the fuzziness of the bright colors and shapes that made no sense from this perspective. After many days of doing this, something changed and the normal reality (or the fuzzy picture) became *Magical* and I was finally able to See the secret image that had been hidden. It was as if I had tapped into some secret dimension and broken the code.  

How can we apply this concept to Life? Many of us go through our days only seeing the fuzzy reality that we believe to be the Truth or all that is. You have to dig deeper, have patience and understand that there is much more than the *EYE* can see. There are always hidden doorways, hidden truths, layers to people and experiences, catch 22’s and silver linings. You have to eliminate and rip open the blinders that have been skewing your perspective for years.

What if we could shift our perspective, adjust our eyes and see a new *Greatness* in the depth of Self which would in turn cast a new light onto the monotony of everyday reality? 

 

Love,

*Katherine*

*Inner Path* or *Outer Path*? (Thank you Sabrina!)

Image

 

We have to decide if we are going to stay focused on the inner path of our OWN soul’s salvation or detour ourselves on the outer path of projection, denial, victimization, why’s and what if’s ~ which will only create soul confusion and a leaking of our power/energy and keep us from creating the life of OUR dreams.

OUTER PATH: (ego separation) Well what about those people? Why do they have more than I do? Why do I have more than they do? Why do I have a happy life and they don’t? Why do people have cancer, go through abuse, get murdered? Why does God make people suffer?

INNER PATH: (Unity of the Soul) I am a co-creator of my own life. I am here to learn and expand my soul through all of my experiences ~ both negative and positive. I know that I can not change people outside of myself…..only “the self” can create change…. although I can inspire others to create change within themselves through MY example. I allow others to be themselves, and I set myself free ~ I allow myself to be myself and I set myself free. I know that God does not create suffering…..humans create suffering, and we are each responsible for the suffering within our own lives. No one is a victim, including myself. We all have god power within ourselves to create the lives we have come here to create, and it is not my responsibility to understand, control or try to alter other people’s soul contracts. I am responsible for understanding my OWN soul contracts, and to do the best I can to advance my soul into greater states of LOVE and connection with Source, The Earth and all living beings. I recognize that we are ALL divine extensions, of the Creator Of All That Is ~ with each one of us learning, expanding and balancing our energy in a variety of diverse ways. By being LOVE I give myself and others the freedom and the respect to learn and create, however they choose, even if I feel it is not for the highest good. I understand that some of our greatest lessons are learned through our mistakes, and our greatest task is to accept responsibility for our mistakes so we can transcend the energetic imprint/karma of that mistake ~ expanding our consciousness and evolving our being ~ so we will never do it again.

The inner path is the spiritual path. The spiritual path is the healing path. The healing path is the inner path that helps us heal any distortions that block us from the free flowing energies of our Spiritual Being/Higher Self/God Self. If we stay focused on the outer path, our energy will be focused externally of ourselves, and we will not be able to heal the things within our own being that need to be healed. Our energy will be divided, because we will be focused on everyone and everything outside of us that is not “light”, which is really just a reflection of our inner being and the things within us that are not “light”. 

This is how the ego works ~ it is our inner opponent ~ that will keep us from seeking the kingdom within. It keeps our mind focused on everything outside of us in the world of duality…right/wrong, good/bad, better/worse ~ instead of just seeing things the way they are ~ learning experiences for every soul to help the soul evolve into greater more expansive states of Love and Light.

When we allow ourselves to stay focused on the inner path, we remain aligned with our soul’s center and we have the extra energy and wisdom to evolve our being into greater states of LIGHT. Everyone else’s soul lessons and learning opportunities are between the individual soul and God. Our soul contracts and lessons are put in place based on the level of the soul’s advancement, how much the soul wants to learn from this particular incarnation and it is also representative of how much karma (energy balance) the soul would like to heal. 

Inner path or outer path? This is a question we need to ask ourselves everyday……

~ Sabrina
