‘Why?’

Are you lost in ‘why’? …as in, why am I ‘here’, why did that happen to me… why is [fill in the blank] not happening …or maybe the proverbial, what the f(ire tr)uck did I do to deserve this?

Familiar? Reckoned so. Here’s some help with that… Continue reading ‘Why?’

Thanks for Nothing!

bastard ego

The ego’s a manipulator, insidious.

No surprise there, I imagine.

Case in point: it comes along after the proverbial fact to give us shit for having [maybe] missed an opportunity, when it’s actually its perspective we’d been seeing things from in the first place (thus causing us to not see – or to ‘shy away from’ – said opportunity)!

It hides all your best gifts on the other side of your fears [and who’s inclined to even think to look there, right?].

Flying When Grounded

Flying When GroundedDo you find yourself asking lately, “What did I do to deserve this?!” Feeling trapped, like a bird in a cage, defeated by circumstances or expectations (of others or – false though they may be – from /towards yourself)?

’11:11′ (and other synchronistic, repeating numbers)

eleven eleven11:11, what does it ‘mean’? And the answer is (well, the answer that I have for you is): ‘different things to different people’…

I’ve heard people describe their appearance as anything from being a Divine wake-up call for oneself as a Lightworker to a message for you to make a wish. One article I read included a caution ‘not to focus on fears’ because you might manifest them. Pbblllltt! (in case you didn’t catch it, that was me blowing a raspberry!) Sounded all too much like fear addiction to me, in the same way the news celebrates dirty laundry. As immortal beings, we have nothing to fear, even from our own fears. It’s not as though if we go there we’re not capable of returning – sometimes it’s essential to our soul’s growth to go in and investigate (objectively, mind you).

(Incidentally, Melanie Beckler’s written what I feel is a particularly good article on the significance of 11:11 that you might want to check out: http://www.ask-angels.com/spiritual-guidance/1111-what-does-it-mean/)

To each their own journey, but from what guidance I’ve myself received, while synchronistic numbers (like 11:11) indeed are our guides’ and angels’ way of trying to get our attention, they’re often bringing attention to something we’ve been avoiding. That could be in terms of a reluctance on our part to accept an as yet unrealized Joyful way of being that we’re capable of but have been resisting for some reason (for no good reason, as the case may be;), or it could be that we’re being pointed to something we’re (at least partially) aware of but have been neglecting to ‘do’.

An example…

Litterbug medicine: eat, sh!t, and die

"don't litter", by Shenghung Lin on Flickr
“don’t litter”, by Shenghung Lin on Flickr

I took a shamanic earthwalk the other day (~ a walkabout vision quest in nature), and afterwards, as part of ‘being the change I want to see in the world’, I was guided to ask, “Why do people litter?”

(Although I realize the better question might be, “Why does it bother me so much?”)

Symbolically, tossing litter is motivated by an unconscious impulse to clear one’s mind. Funny enough, nature can help us with that, but many of us don’t know how to take advantage of what She offers.

Per Mission

I titled this drawing “Per Mission”, partly because there’s what I’d identify as a ‘mission’ in the background (to the left of centre), but moreso because it stressed the importance of verifying that you have a subject’s permission before doing anyone’s psychic illustration.
