Hi guys. Figured a new blog post is due, under the Gandalf law of posting: A shaman's blog post is never late. Nor is it early. It arrives precisely when she means it to. Which is in the middle path between too many and too few. So, now.
Today I got some cool stuff I won from the Academy Awards people, including a white, limited edition Moleskine Oscars notebook with inspirational quotes from Oscar winners past and present. I love the endpapers maxim, pictured here.
THE FUTURE IS ANYTHING WE IMAGINE. Do you concur?
We want to believe that to be true. We scare ourselves with dystopian projections, a might too much perhaps. way too much for my HSPness. We have some good moments where things work out great and we believe. But something like common sense, or don't-be-an-idiot, or a-sucker's-born-every-minute, or I-tried-that-for-a-while-but-it-didn't-work comes between us and our trust. Hands up if that has happened to you. And then we were tossed back into the sea of Dunno, as in I dunno.
It's a cold, lonely sea, where you tend to imagine you are the only one sinking from not swimming fast enough, or brilliantly enough, or healthily enough, or successful enough, adored enough... and so, ergo, the future IS as you imagine it. From that perspective, more Perfect Storm than smooth sailing. Funny how that works. Our despair over not creating lovely stuff makes us not create lovely stuff. Bugger. Who's to say this ain't lovely stuff right here? We ourselves. We have our druthers.
As we get cozier with our Fourth Dimensional knowing and presence, we get to stretch and expand and align differently than we have before into the space we occupy. And since the fourth dimension turns our 3D notions of time on its head, what/when/where exactly IS the future? We're working on manifesting stuff NOW and get bummed if it doesn't show up NOW, but the future IS as we imagine it. This points back to our mindset every time, and that's where the alterations and transformations occur. It's enough to make people go off on each other about not understanding how things really are, in quite animated terms. These changes are literally turning us inside out. We see different perceptions of reality all around us and it makes us really want other people to think like we need them to think, so our lives can be safe and the future can be as we imagine it. Can't you see you're messing with my future?!? Hmmmmm....
When I analyze my own dealings with all this, I'm simultaneously (a key word here) stimulated and stymied by the mechanics of how we actually bridge 3D and 4D realities in a pragmatic way, while clearing our junk for better future-imagining, for lack of a better term. The if everyone just did X, the world would be straightened out is an oldie but a goodie, but, alas, not a pragmatic-y. Maybe we watched too many Disney movies as a kid and think it's all bibbity-bobbity-boo. Or a confluence of hold the rosary and say the thing 100 times/chant the mantra 100 times/write your affirmation 100 times/look in the mirror and say I love you a lot; whisper in your sleep a desperate plea for help involving some combination of them all. Not that any of these practices are without power and merit.
In truth, what we are feeling is the fear attached to the charge of the junk we hold around the thought or experience we can't quite process to finally let go and clear. All the stuff attached to a situation, feeling, person, incident, condition circumstance, projected reality, or fear of same is more charged than our past, present, or future combined, and is affecting it all majorly. When this happens, we have a lot of options to work with, so the future we imagine is the future we actually want to BE, not the future shaped by the stuff that's glommed onto our pain body around other moments in time, including those in our DNA, cellular memory, neural pathways, or from other lifetimes,
Just let it all go and be free sounds great, and is in essence the go-to message, but also is an irritating thing to be told. Because we actually may need some help with that. Shamanic journeys, and the other work I do, may be an effective avenue for your personal work in this area, assisting you in person or remotely, to transform energy you are carrying and assist you in creating the future you are really imagining, or wanting to imagine. Not that we just wave some feathers and smoke and call it good. Like any practice, it takes some doing. The personal journeys and shamanic work I do for my own stuff have been invaluable and continue to increase in power and energy wrangling capabilities, opening the 3D>4D pathways with lucid dreaming, crystal transmissions, major clearing and helper-guided info and experiential insights. Opening each of us up like a cosmic colander that allows the light to pour in and the gunk to flow through. The more we each lighten up, the lighter the body and the life and the world we can imagine into being.
