Yoda said it best, but do people embrace the light side or the dark.

Did you know, when we fear, we are caught in the dark—even in those times when we think we are fearing for the best.

“Fear is the part to the dark side. Fear leads to anger. Anger leads to hate. Hate leads to suffering.”

—Yoda

What if, same as in Disney’s 2015 hit movie Tomorrowland, our combined thoughts—as whole world community—created the circumstances we faced throughout 2020?

Over the last decade, we’ve become more and more connected than ever—even remote villages gained access to Google and Facebook. However, the growth in connection via technology has not advanced on par with the evolution of human cognition.

While humans began to face a world that may comfortably suit and very well fit their every need, they hesitated to embrace it. They struggled to thrive beyond their wildest possibilities. They got stuck on survival; they got stuck on fear. They manifested a world-wide pandemic.

What has covid resulted in?

May it not be fear. Instead, may you be embracing all of your wonderful possibilities. May you be thriving in a world that is way past just surviving. May you be grateful everyday. May you enjoy your PRESENT; your family, your friends, your audience, your clients, your pets. May you be enjoying the world around you; your Nature, your community, your home…for—in a Universe filled with infinite possibilities—you must’ve been created to enjoy the wonderful Creations this existence has to offer. Nobody wants to watch a flower suffer, and everything has its time; what is it time for you to do?

Instead of Fear, what can you be embracing?

When you fill up with all of the good things; self-care, Nature, Inner-Peace through Prayer and Meditation, positive songs and media, nourishing conversations and thoughts, there is very little room for junk things—there is very little room for fear, stress, anxiety, self-pity, or self-doubt. But if you’re human, those creepers may still come around, so it’s important to exercise the mind daily and keep a healthy mental diet.

What kind of things are you doing to exercise your mind daily and keep a healthy mental diet?

When you have a toolkit to combat Fear, you will surely beat it, or work with it to manifest your most heartfelt desires. What is currently in your toolkit, and what else can you add?

long-term stress: HOW LONG CAN HUMANS STAND IT?

What happens when we are continuously exposed to long-term stress? At the same time, do the things that happen need to be deemed stressful? What if, we can learn from every situation we are exposed to—without letting it stress us out? What if, we take time to grow and reframe?

What if, during that time, we focus on growth—without becoming addicted to the stressful situation; without beginning to assimilate the stressful behavior.

How do we successfully transcend stressful situations?

It takes effort. It takes lots and lots of attempts and failed tries. Sometimes it literally takes physically removing yourself from the situation. If you’re not ready to remove yourself from the situation, become an observer; just watch the situation, and if too many complaints come out of your mouth; if the negativeness takes over your vocabulary, completely remove yourself from that environment—if you don’t, you are at risk of internalizing your complaints, and they may become part of your own behavior.

One must be mindful when judging others for one could turn into them.

Every situation is defined by the beholder, so we must be vigilant in becoming active participants in whatever we are defining. If we never allow ourselves to dwell in chronic stressful situations, if we don’t label most things “bad,” then we can maintain lower stress levels (we can create a more beautiful life). All we have to do is get Creative.

So…what kind of creative things are you making with the lemons life is throwing out?

How are you refocusing your energy into something more valuable—instead of wasting precious mental energy on thinking about stressful factors?

How are you exercising your creative muscles to become more resilient and successful in life?

How are you creating more harmonious balance?

Coming up with all of the answers sometimes takes time. Growth takes time, and it is usually uncomfortable (sometimes overwhelmingly). Evolving out of stress-focused-thinking isn’t usually done over-night, it usually takes lots of practice and redundant repetition.

But: it can be done; by refocusing attention, and rethinking more nourishing things, one can transcend overly stressful mental scenarios. It’s time to get Creative.

deydreaming CloudThought inspirational quote

Thank God it’s Friday!

no brain noise here;

no mind gremlins;

not an ounce of monkey chatter, mitotes, head static, or incessant inner-talk.

We are focused on ONE thing.

Permission

Most people love Fridays because it brings them one step closer to what they truly want to be doing, some people do what they love to be doing every day, others take the chance to escape whatever way they can. 

What do you love? What do you truly enjoy doing?

I give you permission to do that—now, you have to give yourself authority.

Some of up grow up looking up to our parents for approval, some of us forget to drop that bad habit even when we become adults.

Permission is granted when you do something right, physical reprimands may be given when you are bad, and some of us got the wonderful opportunity to get talked to/at—so we learned how to communicate nicely or negatively from our caregivers. We learned how to talk to ourselves; good or bad. 

How do you talk to your Other? How do you deal with all the different unified voices inside of your head—they all seem to form your thinking.

What of your thoughts—where do they come from? Where have you learned how to think like that?

Remember when there were no voices screaming for attention inside of your head? How does it feel to have harmonious silence? How do we deal with all the talk—can we stop the thinking as the Others?

Who is talking inside your head?

What is making you utter the things you say?

Remember when there was silence? 

There was only observation. 

There was nothing but the notion that you were being taken care-of, and life was a-OKAY!

Life is still fine; in fact, it’s beautiful. 

Life gives us everything we need and want (we continuously speak and think what we need or want into existence).

So be aware of your thoughts, become friends with your thinking; only utter that which you want. Take care not to waste your Energy on anything you don’t want to bring into existence (don’t waste your Energy manifesting shitty things).

Dream big, let your imagination fly; then focus on what fills you.

Give your Energy to Life; be in-harmony with existing.

Follow your heart; I give you permission.

Now give yourself authority; let your Soul be happy.

Enjoy the joy that’s in your life.

Enjoy the life that you’ve been given; never settle for less—a tree may grow as big as it can, it don’t need permission. So grow tall; you child made up of trees and stars. Grow big and strong, reach your highest potential. You have permission.
