I first want to express my deepest caring for all those suffering tremendous upheaval and anguish in Texas. My heart goes out to everyone and I can only hope good people with hearts wide open in that area will extend their hand to those who are in need of your help! In trying to find coverage about the storm on TV, I was absolutely APPALLED and DISGUSTED to hear the constant gripping about President Trump for political gain all the while people are dying terrible deaths and have had their entire lives torn apart and devastated. Washington, you will pay dearly at the polls for what you have done! We the people will never forget!

For me who is an Empath, it is almost unbearable to continue living in this country surrounded by this grotesque display of IGNORANCE!!!! I am going to take a short time off to regroup and decide just where I want to be in this world right now. America is not it! It shames me deeply to my core to watch the hypocrisy and grand standing going on by mindless and unqualified politicians and the very sick media egging it all on. Texas I pray for you all and I pray the intelligent people of this country get awakened soon before we all go under, which is exactly where these sick people want to take us….Love and prayers to Texas!   VK ❤

Leap Of Faith…

I sat in the sun the day of the eclipse to soak up whatever messages the sun was filling us with, because I didn’t have the special glasses to watch it. As I sat and watched the eclipse through my senses, I had much time to contemplate what is going on right now in this country. The main word or phrase I keep hearing being uttered wherever I go is “Insanity”. The country is insane right now, the very ground our feet walk upon is roiling and rolling and throwing us off-balance. It seems we either regain our balance within or fall off into the insanity abyss.  Why are so many people freaking out about what they are witnessing? It’s because we are being shown our individual and collective brokenness, we are watching ourselves on the silver screen of reality playing out the drama.

Right now at this time in one of our darkest moments, we are being shown our brokenness and are being offered a choice by the universe. To continue to act out and distract ourselves from the truth unfolding about what we are becoming as a society or move forward and acknowledge America’s bleeding wounds and choose to join others to help heal the wounds, first within and then as a whole for the good of humanity.

Part of the anguish many are feeling these days comes from having to look at our flaws like a child would look at a wound. How did we get here? Perhaps because we have been distracted in our self-absorbed lives taking selfies rather than looking outside of ourselves to take notice that we are destroying ourselves. Selfies and smart phones are eliminating intimacy from the equation of day-to-day living. When we are self-absorbed we do not pay attention to anyone else  who may need help or a country crying out to come together and move beyond where we now find ourselves, in quicksand going under.

My favorite saying right now is ” It’s do or die time”. We are at THE crossroads sitting in the car with the motor running reading a road map and trying to decide which way to go. It will take courage to take the road less traveled and it will take above all TRUST in ourselves and the choices we make as well as trust in the universe.  Society is teetering on the edge right now because we are being asked the hard questions. Have we honored the truth and stood up for it? Are we respecting one another and putting away our judgment? Are we upholding our vows of morality?  Are we being of service to others or to ourselves? The reason we are being shown the ‘insanity’ is to make us see where we are going wrong. It will take each of us getting whole and real with ourselves before we can help the whole country heal and hope to ever see peace.

Never forget what Albert Einstein said (para phrasing)  [You cannot fix what is broken with the same minds that created the problems.] The universe is asking us to rise up and raise our consciousness, break away from victim mentality and strive again to become more than ever before. To be able to say truthfully once again, I matter, we matter.  It is time for humanity to take it to the next level, to awaken fully no matter how painful and find the courage and trust that what lies ahead is far better than where we are now. It’s that leap off into the abyss that we must take, collectively, as a new form of humanity emerges into being. Grow your wings and take the big leap.

Blessings to all in mid-air…..

If you read this blog you already know how crazy I think the world is right now. It is upside down and inside out as I like to say. I suppose I could get caught up in that scenario like so many others, but I choose not to as best I can. I have the kind of mind when if presented with a problem, it immediately goes looking for a solution on its own. So of course I look at Spain and the world as a whole right now, but I also look deeper into the why of everything, for the core, for it is there that the true solution for healing humanity must begin. This is where medicine today is failing. We must stop taking in all forms of distraction/medicine to mask our problems, like an aspirin to take away pain. Heal the problem heal the pain. As with every lesson we are meant to learn in this life time, if we ignore the lesson, it just gets worse, amplified by ten, it screams and causes pain until we pay attention and act.

If you look at everything going down around the world right now one central theme runs throughout it all…We have not learned the art of listening. Think how frustrated and sometimes angry you get when you are trying to get a point across but nobody is listening. It is an attack on our validation. Everyone needs to feel validated. It is part of being human. It nurtures our being and we feel strength and goodness from it. It is so sad to watch the whole world not be able to listen. Nobody is being heard, nobody is being understood, nobody is being validated and it is causing great friction that is burning so hot it is about to ignite. To not listen is also to not respect and we are seeing little respect being shown to anyone. All the screaming and spewing the most hateful words we can dream up to try to hurt someone else, to demean them, injure them, destroy them. It is pitiful to have to acknowledge that this is our world today.

Listening is so automatic like breathing, that we pay it little attention and therein lies our problem we need to fix. We need to learn how to listen correctly without judgment and with an open compassionate heart. It is such a shame that our so-called leaders have disgraced us all by their partisan bickering, dangerous ego games and total lack of caring about the people who put them in office. From birth on we have learned how to navigate our world from watching others. I feel shame and disgust when I watch what goes on in Washington. Words, lies and manipulation. They are so busy keeping their stories straight so they can get re-elected that they can’t listen and certainly not with an honest, compassionate heart.  If they will not show maturity and leadership, then we the people must step in and take over, pushing them all out of office for not doing their jobs. Don’t forget they work for US!

Our leaders will not listen so it is now up to us to focus on our individual lives and master the fine art of listening with compassion. All people wish to be heard and understood, so we ALL have to learn by making sure we listen with an open heart. It will take practice for we will immediately go for what is familiar. We judge, we assume, we criticize. We can end this way of being in the world, it just takes doing it. Making conscious choices for the betterment of others, thinking before we ourselves speak, concentrating on the person speaking and what they are saying, not on what our response is going to be. That is ego speaking. Tuck ego to bed and choose to be a better you and hopefully those around us will do the same. We can’t change the whole world but we can change ourselves.

Blessings to all…

Change Cometh….

I thought I’d share this here as well as posting it on my other blog…

Over the years that I have been watching carefully the shifting of paradigms, it came in slowly at first, then recently began speeding up to the frantic state we now find ourselves in today. We need to see things from a new perspective, a wider and deeper one that ventures way outside the box! It should be plainly obvious to all of us that the present way of governing ourselves is not working for us anymore. Simply put, we are not who we were when we made up the rules. Government has run amok and society is suffering profoundly from what is happening. The few have become the wealthy and the wealthy pretty much have run the world up until now, up until the paradigm shifted and society has had their awareness shifted by the uncovering of the rampant corruption, abuse of power and lies. The many have suffered under the control of the few since the beginning and our patience has run out.

All of the chaos we are witnessing is a result of the energy of the shifting paradigms.The powerful division we see strengthening, the sides being taken, the anger at the ready, is a matter of two factions of humans short circuiting on different frequencies and unable to find words to reconnect. Their differences are as strong as magnets being forced together on the wrong sides. The pushing apart is strong and so is the difference between paradigms. One paradigm is loving and giving and thinks with its heart and well outside the confines of the box, and is ready for change, the other paradigm is still trapped inside the meme of war, more is better, conquer the world, steal all the money, control all the people. As a collective of the new paradigm, we have come a long way, we have opened our hearts and minds and the old meme no longer speaks to who we are as a whole. Too many of us have splintered off from the antiquated meme and so the herd will no longer follow automatically in one direction. Now they question causing a fork in the road..

As part of our new paradigm we will need a new form of governance that views life and it’s rules through new and updated eyes. Cronyism is dead! Our new ways of thinking and being can no longer accept what was as what is. The scam of the two-party system will continue as long as we allow it. I wonder how many more decades it will take for us to find the courage to make the change. Humans being such devout creatures of habit, most do not like to experience change. It is unsettling and somehow threatening when in fact we should embrace it for the growth it will bring. We fear it because we have been taught we are alone rather than being taught the truth that we really belong together. Who wants to make fearful changes alone? And so we avoid change at all costs. We have been divided and continue to be divided for the sole purpose of control.We are weakened by the forcing of unrest between us and using that unrest as distraction. Once one begins to understand how the Washington machine operates the more clearly one can begin to make sense of what is going on today.

We are now witness to the old paradigm fighting hard to keep control but feeling it slipping away. They are frightened and they are angry and they are dangerous like a wild cornered animal, but we must keep up our cause to make the world a safer, happier and more caring place. A movement needs to be birthed in favor of a new form of government.To sit silently at this time would be a waste of grand opportunity. It is obvious we need a new way of being,what we have is no longer working and it is up to us to instigate this change. Two parties were created to begin the great divide between us and it surely did that! It is time to do away with anything that promotes division for we are now all about coming together at long last. Keep on keeping on all you pioneers.Get a “End the old Government” group organizing!

Disconnect from the old and plug into the new…Humans reveal their true strength when they can finally embrace the task of becoming the best that they can be rather than becoming lost in the nothingness of materialism.

A Moment Of Clarity….

I was just outside watching a butterfly glide about on a gentle breeze, the sun filling it with energy so it can continue on it’s search for flower nectar. Here I am on my last half of life still awakening to new understandings. Love it! As I watched the butterfly flitting about, I had what I would call an epiphany of sorts. Now I am sure a great many others have already had this thought and probably much earlier than I, but we get what we get when it is needed. There are a great many things right in front of our faces and yet we do not see them or catch on to their messages right away for whatever reason. If we paid closer attention to our lives perhaps we would not over look the obvious so often.

Here is what came to me: Yes, it is fascinating to realize a caterpillar actually has to die to turn itself into a butterfly, the whole amazing process has been studied by many and awed by everyone. Several summers ago I raised a pupa in a ball jar until the birthing of a beautiful monarch butterfly. It was amazing to witness. What I failed to see until now, the message I received from this butterfly I was watching today, was that there is no need for a debate on whether or not reincarnation exists. What more proof do we need than a caterpillar that dies only to return to life as a butterfly? There is no argument. We all live many lives, improving our existence as we progress along the journey.

The closer we observe nature, the more we reconnect with the deeper meanings of life and are given a road map to follow, if we are wise enough to see. Nature has survived and evolved successfully without war, we should pay attention. Just a thought on a sunny Friday afternoon. Happy weekending to all!

By the way, like the picture says, butterflies inspire us, not only because of their beauty and grace, but because they are a solid reminder that we do indeed die but we also continue on to other lives. Why would creator limit our experience? He wouldn’t.

Have the courage to be different, to be who you really are…
