Helping Heal Hatred: The Secret Cause of Hate

Typically, hatred is seen as a negative and therefore unacceptable thing in our society. But hatred is a valid feeling, and when we deem something as bad and unacceptable to feel, we resist it within ourselves. And in a universe based on the law of attraction, whatever we resist persists. Instead of denying our hatred, we need to admit it to ourselves.

When we feel hatred and peel back that hatred to expose the more vulnerable emotions underneath it. Only then can we end hatred in ourselves and therefore end it in the world.

“Hatred is a cover emotion for fear and hurt. So address the fear and hurt directly then focus on things that cause you to feel empowered and safe and watch the hatred melt away. “

I Can Have Me and I Can Have You Too

Today’s world is littered with ideologies like “fill up your own cup”, “everything you could ever want or need is inside you”, “the only approval you need is your own” and “no one else can make you happy, only you can do that”.  These ideologies exalt the idea of spiritual, emotional, mental and physical independence.  For some people, these ideologies are liberating.  For other people, these ideologies are painful.

One of the problems that we have today relative to the idea of independence and dependence is that we do not understand that we can have both.  The state of connection and the state of autonomy can coexist in perfect harmony.  In fact, it is the coexistence of these contradictory yet complimentary states that leads to health in relationships.

The Hidden Truth About Racism

We are moving in the direction of a socially unified world.  Races are expressions of consciousness.  They are perspectives.  They are not who anyone is.  But in today’s modern world, discussion about race has become taboo.  As a result, we cannot have the crucial conversations we need to have in order to create a socially unified world.  The time has come to make the topic of race and racism, no longer taboo.

What has never been talked about before is the fact that pain is not just felt by the person on the receiving end of racism.  In fact the root of racism is pain.  We do not develop resistance to a specific race unless we feel as if that race is a threat.  So the question we need to be asking is, what is the perceived threat?  What pain is hiding behind each specific case of racism?  Until we address this pain, we will find no resolution.  But if we find this root and begin to directly address the perceived pain that caused the racism in the first place, we can actually create resolution.

Like it or not, we all hold racial stereotypes.   If we can face these stereotypes and admit to the pain behind them on both sides, racism could actually become a thing of the past.

How To Activate And Open Your Third Eye Like A Boss

Third Eye activation is all about opening up your mental center to perceive more of what’s going on all around you. By seeing “more” of what’s all around you, what I mean is seeing the greater depth of vibration that exist beyond the physical.

This is, without a doubt, one of the best videos I have ever seen explain this topic, in depth, not only what it is, but how to do it. Enjoy.

Put on some headphones, and listen to this next video with your eyes closed, in a dark room, remembering everything that you had just learned from the previous video.

Watch the trailer for the new documentary about Teal Swan!

Open Shadow tells the inspiring story of Teal Swan. A woman with a pure heart, and a voice worth listening to. She has survived the reality of something that only seems like graphic horror on a movie screen to most of us,  and lives to bring truth and awareness to the world through demonstration of her own healing and personal transformation.

Teal and I were very good friends back in 2012,  and since I met her I knew she was incredibly sensitive to subtle energies, more so than 99% of the people I had met previously in my life. Teal was incredibly compassionate, and had unique ways to see the energy in other people as if reading a book. She would even help them move their own energy around, if they were willing to grow and participate in their own change. learned a great deal from her, and I know that i’m not the only one.

Take a look at the trailer, and see what I mean. She has touched a lot of hearts, and brought a lot of people together. :)

This documentary is slated for release in May of 2016.  It’s being directed by a woman named Paola Marino, who studied Film in Italy, where she graduated summa cum laude in 1995, and has produced films for film festivals around the world. Her and her team have been working on this project for over a year now.

You can learn more about their project at their website here!

This film is a community project and therefore will be entirely crowdfunded! They are still raising money for their campaign, and they’re getting close to their goal!

Finally, Teal is currently in Australia doing several large workshops! If you’re in the area, and want to connect with some spirit family, go and check it out! 

Even Buddha Had Bad Days!

Most of us have a clear idea of the goal that we are headed towards.  We want to be enlightened.  We want to be absent of ego.  Most of all, we want to be free of suffering.   We have a picture in our heads of what we think that enlightenment looks like; our perfect image of the spiritually enlightened person.  But what most people don’t know is that this image we are holding on to, is a lie that we keep telling ourselves.  Enlightenment is not like that.  Enlightenment is no kind of retirement from life itself.   It is no kind of retirement from the ups and downs.  We create the illusion of enlightened retirement from the ups and downs when we feel resistant to the ups and downs.  We invent the idea that enlightenment means perfect bliss twenty-four hours a day only when we are suffering and we want an end to that suffering.  Enlightenment is only the beginning, because after enlightenment you still have to engage with physical life and physical life was designed to be a means for creating expansion.

Physical life is a learning hologram.  No one who is alive is exempt from expansion and so, no one is exempt from contrast.  And as long as there is contrast, there is the recognition of what is unwanted as well as the recognition of what is wanted present within you.   If we were to reach a state where we were magically transformed into a permanent state of bliss, it would mean ended-ness.  There could be no further expansion from that place and that would not serve the universe at large.  What serves the universe at large is eternal expansion.  So even once you have attained enlightenment, you still have to integrate what it has taught you.  You still have to integrate the spiritual awareness you have achieved into your day-to-day life.   Even though the samsara waves never stop coming, the more enlightened you become, the more your thoughts change.  Your perspective changes to match the vibration of source perspective.  And so the meaning of your experiences changes.  The way you think about and deal with the ups and downs is what changes and so those ups and downs are not experienced the same way that they once were.

There is no shame in struggling.  Having problems is not a character flaw.  You have not failed if you have a bad day.  Buddha had bad days.  Jesus had bad days.  Muhammad had bad days.  You will not meet a single physically manifested being (whether they are an ascended master or not) that is exempt from contrast and so you will not meet a single physically manifested being who is in alignment twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week.  To expect this from anyone is cruelty.   To feel embarrassment or shame if you are out of alignment is cruelty.  To expect yourself to be in alignment twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week is cruelty.   And it’s time that we stop perpetuating cruelty in ourselves as well as within this spiritual community that we ourselves are responsible for creating.  Spiritual practice is just that… It is a practice.  It is still a practice for those who are spiritual masters.  Alignment is something that we have to maintain.  It is not a prize that we reach and then we are granted alignment forever no matter what we think or do.  Alignment and enlightenment is not something that is done to us once we prove ourselves worthy.  It is something we constantly maintain.  We choose to come into alignment or not in each moment.  And denial is no kind of alignment.

So the question is: Are you bypassing yourself?
