Potential

Earthly Meaning: “All energy can be harnessed and used in myriad of ways. Just as elite athletes learn to use nervous energy to better their performance, it is up to you to draw on the energy stored in a negative experience to fuel your motivation, determination or creativity. Use whatever life sends you to your advantage. You can sit on the potential within you, or you can release it. It is your choice. This is not a matter of circumstance, ability or worthiness. Convert a possibility into reality.”

Spiritual Meaning: “Through grace and love, we continue to transform. Nothing we do is lost or forgotten. As we release our hidden potentials, we create our destiny. One day we shall become stars. Through this process, many future Earths shall be born where we can live as one in the arms of the Divine Mother. The ground you walk on, the rain that falls, her love is stored in everything.”

Insight: “Energy cannot be created or destroyed. It cannot appear from nowhere, nor can it disappear. All objects contain stored energy. This energy is measured in terms of its capacity or potential. Coal has the capacity to create heat. A stationary rock could roll downhill at a certain speed for a certain distance. The energy in running water has the potential to charge batteries. The potential is there, but the stored energy may sit dormant for millenia without ever being converted or utilized. This energy is neither negative or positive, but it can be used in any number of ways. Electricity can be used to hurt or return someone to life. There is potential in everything… in your memories, your hopes, your doubts, your strengths. How you use them is up to you.”

Again we are reminded that we may have a perceived loss, something that we though we wanted has been taken off the table. But maybe it is a redirection; maybe it is saving us from repeating old patterns of hurt or trauma that would waste our precious time and necessary growth. Maybe we need to see why things changed so rapidly, accept the lesson and move forward into something new.

How can you take what you have learned and turn it from a painful experience into an empowering one? How can you realign with your true potential? What is it about your dreams that may actually be holding you back from your life path? Are you waiting ‘until’ something or someone comes into your life to truly be happy? Are you feeling that you need someone else to fulfill you? Are you  holding yourself back because you believe you need to be a certain way before you can step into a new chapter?

Let all these belief systems go. You are exactly where you need to be. You are as powerful right now as you will ever be. Find this power and use it to create your highest Potential. It is waiting for you to discover yourself and claim it.

Namaste

Reaction

Earthly Meaning: “Denial, numbness, or misplacement have compounded unresolved emotions. An emotional reaction may have knocked things off-balance. Beneath the surface, things may have been off-balance for some time. Uncomfortable emotions are powerful signals. Respond with compassion, careful consideration and awareness. Limiting emotions restricts access to truth. The person who can only feel positive emotions does not recognize a villain. The person who only feels anger cannot accept love.”

Spiritual Meaning: “Observe your emotions and consider what they are signalling. To a large extent, how you react and respond to life depends on how you perceive it to be. Step away for a while. Clarity requires balance and detachment. Let love be the catalyst for an enlightened outcome. Accepting your emotional self leads to being calm, composed and blessed in every solution.”

Insight: “Water reacts to cold and heat by changing form. A seed reacts to the presence of water, oxygen and the right temperature by germinating. Plants react to light, vinegar reacts to baking soda and iron reacts to oxygen. Some reactions are instant, some are slow, but they are natural and predictable. Human reactions are much the same. Inhaling pepper will make you sneeze. Peeling onions will make you cry. A baby responds to hunger by crying. Being threatened will trigger a fight, flight or freeze response. Sadness, anger and fear are innate responses to emotional, mental or physical hurt. As children, we expressed those feelings as signals for help, love, comfort or nurture. The capacity to interpret our emotional reactions with awareness is a distinctly human trait. Not responding to your world is not possible. Expecting to manage, control or deny innate reactions out of existence is like continuously turning up the heat and being surprised when the water boils.”*

Things may not be going as planned. You may have come up against an unexpected block, challenge or obstacle in your journey. What this actually is, is your own unresolved emotions coming back to haunt you.

If you have been too compromising, given too much of yourself or been too lenient with your boundaries, you may be experiencing some regret, frustration or discontent. It is uncomfortable putting boundaries in place after the fact. After they have been pushed past too many times. After you have let them down too far… or not put any in place what so ever…

But this is an important lesson in self-worth. It is proving to you that you are worth your boundaries. That your emotions are important and that they are telling you something about yourself. That you may or may not be admitting to yourself. Boundaries are very important, and you have been too lenient with them. You deserve the respect that comes from implementing them.

Where do you need boundaries in your life right now? In your personal, intimate or family relationships? In your workplace? In your neighbourhood? You will know what resonates. It is time to take charge and put them in place. And remember, it is ok to be firm, using compassion and respect.

Namaste

Time

Earthly Meaning: “Bitterness or frustration over plans gone awry.. Feeling it is too late, that you have missed out or that things are not happening quickly enough. Comparisons lead to a sense of failure or lack of joy. Pining for youth or lamenting time lost through unwise choices. Set a priority or release yourself from anxiety by weighing up what will really matter in a week, a year or a decade.”

Spiritual Meaning: “Feelings, memories and emotions rise and fall in the ocean of your heart. Like flotasm, they are surrendered to the shores of consciousness. A space clears and fills with light. The ocean in your heart is but a drop in the waters of creation, beyond the boundaries of time and space. Immersed, weightless… let it go; be free.”

Insight: “Our beautiful planet is timeless. Earth does not know what day or millennium it is. The calendar we follow means nothing to her. The calendar you follow is but one way of capturing the passing of time. It is a construction – a filter through which we perceive our age or measure our progress through life. The sunrise does not wait for an alarm to ring. Life is not measured by ticks and tocks. How old would you be if you did not know your age? If there was no such thing as too early, too late or one day, would it change how you see yourself? There are not expectations of where you should be right now… no milestones, no losing, no winning any race. Time cannot impede the turning of the tide, the changing of a season, or the birthing of a star. Outside of time, this moment is forever – forever is now. The illusion is lost. Be whole, be present, be timeless.”*

There is so much pressure on us to remain youthful no matter our age or life experience. Youth is valued above all else, even above material possessions. Many cultures have revered their elders, putting them in a place of authority and respect, taking care of them, learning from their ways. But in the modern world beauty rules. Many of us have based our self worth on whether we are still found attractive; whether we have retained our youthful appearance.

And it’s time to move past that old, outmoded, patriarchal way of thinking. It’s time to move inwards, release all those old regrets and perceived losses or setbacks and move forward regardless of what we have been through.

I love the old saying “Today is the first day of the rest of your life.” And if we were to truly live our lives by this, how would they change? Would we decide to break out of old ruts and routines? Would we say goodbye to past pain and trauma that we have been holding on to for far too long? Would we decide to take a few chances, create something brand new?

In each moment we have the choice to create more of the same or something completely different. In each moment we have the opportunity to raise our frequency and attract what brings us joy, abundance, health, peace or whatever our hearts most desire. It is up to us to manifest our reality around us, breath by breath, thought by thought and feeling by feeling. No regrets.

And so it is

Namaste
