DUALITY OF LIFE

IW-Beato-Angelico-Annunciazione-di-Cortona-01

Have you ever felt as if one half of you does not know what the other half is really thinking or more importantly feeling. It’s as if you are torn between one way of behaving that is in total conflict with how the other half of you would like to engage and or respond.
So how does one handle the inner conflict that seems to wage war on our ability to determine what’s best for us and not just to pacify a situation do to our inability to know which side we are really on.
The image above expresses the understanding that all opposites create a whole and with clear observation a happy medium of awareness can bring a state of acceptance that allows for a sense of peace and calm.
The realization that the only thing we have control over is our thoughts about the situation, and all else is not in our ability to persuade for very long, the real truth of the matter will rise on its own without any contradiction on your part.
Less is more and if one half of you is wise enough to quiet the other than listen and watch the result of non action.
Within your grasp is the consciousness of your behavior which not only affects you but all those around you. Taking a few moments to think about something before reacting to it, allowing for your other half to respond and show a different perspective on the subject will save you hours of conflict and defensiveness that can serve no one.
We have the power to go within, listen to our gut which is the heart giving us a vibration that comes from either fear or love. Let love rule your life, for only good can come from that sense of knowing.
We are all children trying to find our way home. A place where we are seen for who we are not what we are. Love defines us gives us strength to carry on even when all seems so dim and hopeless.
Remember we are all on our own paths and the journey home is longer for many and they must be permitted to make mis-takes along the way. Our roll in their journey which we are a part of for whatever reason, is to be kind and forgiving. Forgiveness is the hardest lesson but the most rewarding.
Listen to your higher self it is closer to God and has a direct connection to the cosmic computer, all you have to do is plug yourself in and sit back and enjoy the ride

SLEEPING BEAUTY

the importance of sleep

The beauty about sleep is the ability to travel to another dimension that is available to us through different wave lengths.

The importance of sleep is not just to rest the body but to rest the mind as well. This allows for the body to concentrate on healing itself while the dream state is busy taking us to places available as the thinking mind shuts down and the subconscious can take over.

But for many sleep is not something that comes easily, and even if dreaming takes place it’s soon forgotten as we wake up to our world of reality.

The Native American Indians believe that our dream time is our real time and the life we live with our eyes open is the dream. This did not make much sense to me till I started recording my dreams in a journal, an exercise I recommend to everyone.

A pattern began to form and soon I was happy to fall asleep freeing myself from the everyday mundane tasks that we perform as a way of keeping us alive and well, or is it?

Dream interpretation has been done for thousands of years as a cautionary measure against an event yet to take place or that is taking place without your awareness. But once again we find ourselves being analyzed by someone else just making assumptions.

We know best especially when it comes to our hearts intelligence. If we listen more to the innate feelings coming from the vibration of the heart 8 seconds before the thinking mind kicks in, we will respond accordingly. Together the Heart and our bodies ability to heal itself not only creates a happy healthy environment for you to live in but also becomes a platform for the endless possibilities your dreamtime can show you.

There are many ways to prepare you for sleep, just like anything else we do it takes the time necessary to calm the body and the mind down to allow for the rest you need to happen.

Reading always helps especially if the content is spiritual, and what you absorb before slept can greatly influence the nature of your dreaming.
Eating too close to bedtime causes the body to be active therefore making it harder to fall and stay asleep.
The worst thing is falling asleep while watching t.v. It’s not so much the content of the program as the frequencies coming from the unit.
Electric clocks, blankets, radios, mobile telephones, and outside lighting from the street, utility connections on the home, all play a huge roll in the bedroom environment and the outcome of your sleep time.

A lack of sleep can cause wake time irritability and inability to behave in a way that is rational and consistent. If you find yourself in need of a nap take one, use your lunch break to shut down and reboot your system. It’s proven that short naps help align the mind and body functions making you more alert and present.

Sleep has been hugely under rated considered by many to be a waste of precious doing time. Yes some need less sleep then others but whether you sleep for five hours or more the quality of your sleep affects the quality of your life.

If the Native American Indians are right what is revealed to you during your sleep time can be very important to the paths you choose. The understanding that life happens with eyes closed or opened, and there is no escaping your destiny, so you might as well be rested properly for the journey that awaits you even if its just in your dreams.

Lots of Love
