What has happened to the year? This is a question I hear everyone asking. We know about the Schumann Resonance Theory that postulates that the Earth has a pulse or hearbeat of her own which pulsates at a certain amount of cycles per second, something like 7.8. Some scientists believe that this frequency has, over time, been speeding up and is currently at around 12 or 13 cycles per second. Thus, what was previously experienced as 24 hours, now feels like 16!
It’s a fair theory and I admit that I haven’t done enough research on it to have made up my mind as to whether or not it’s true, or even accurate in terms of the figures quoted. So, for now, it remains just a theory. Another theory which makes so much more sense, is that the amount of information sharing that we as a human race are able to do, far surpasses that of ten years ago or probably even two or three years ago. Everyone is on Facebook, Twitter, and every other social network available to us. People are able to video events happening and post them up onto the internet in almost real-time or within seconds of the event happening. Whereas previously even a cataclysmic event such as a tornado ripping through the heart of America, never made same day news!
So what are we to do? The guides tell us that we need to slow things down. It is becoming more important that people spend time in meditation and learn to slow their minds down. Because, it is in learning to slow down the mind that we will learn how to slow everything else around us down. And it is only when we have slowed our lives down, that we will be able to see the endless amount of opportunities that are presented to us. And it is also only when we will be able to make that all important connection to our higher selves and the Great I Am, which is the All Creative Spirit that resides within each one of us.
In constantly running and being bombarded with information overload on a daily basis, we are doing ourselves such a disservice. For in rushing around and chasing our own tails, never taking the time to get to know ourselves and our fellow human beings whom we claim to love, we are not honouring ourselves. And when we don’t honour ourselves, we are not honouring God. After all, each one of us is an expression of God, our Creator who loves us unconditionally and has given us so much. Yet, we take it all for granted and we never even stop long enough to say thank you.
Giving thanks and showing gratitude is the first step in learning to be of service to each other. Understanding that we are all different, yet the same, is another important step that we need to take in order for us to become tolerant human beings, who respect each other for who we are and not for what society has labelled us as. And being of service to each other with love, honour and respect, is being of service to the Great I Am, our Father God, who created every single thing that lives and moves upon the earth and within the universe.
Find a way to slow down everything happening in your space. If we all do this, we will see a marked difference and the whole world will feel it. And what a wonderful experience to be able to make the connection that we so desire and strive for every day and to keep it open. For in keeping our connection to the guides, our loved ones and our Higher Selves, we automatically make our lives so much easier to live. And that is exactly what we all want and need – happy, fulfilling, successful and stress-free lives.
Every day we see inspirational quotes being posted on the internet and emailed from one person to the next – people sharing messages that they hope will make their fellow human beings see the world differently and change their behaviours. It is an interesting thought though, that perhaps these messages are being posted in an attempt to make the person saying or posting them look like they have all the answers to life. Just a thought…
If you are unable to be that message that you post or live up to that message, I suggest that you think very carefully beforehand. Because it is easy to just spout words for the sake of it – there is a saying that empty vessels make the most noise. Please don’t get me wrong, some of those messages are truly inspirational and they do make one stop and think, even if it’s only for a second or two. The problem is, that they are read and then go out of our minds. We don’t take them in and incorporate them into our lives in any way. So the question remains, are they worth the time and effort to write in the first place, and then in the second place, to post into a public space for everyone to read?
From a spiritual perspective, living your life in the most spiritual way possible is a very personal journey. It is one that should be very inwardly focused. We should be worrying only about our own personal growth and if through how we live our life, we inspire others. Because through personally inspiring others through our actions, we will contribute to their personal growth and that is how we help each other. To say something without meaning it and to offer advice in any way without having the experience to back it up, is futile and judgemental. It is assuming that the other person doesn’t have the capability, the wisdom or the knowledge that you have – and that is not living your life spiritually.
Putting your hand out and helping someone else when they need it and for their benefit is living your life spiritually. Putting your hand out to help someone when you think they need your help, is judgemental. There is a huge difference and it all involves our egos. When we allow our egos to lead us, we’re bound to be walking down the wrong path. Putting ourselves first means concentrating on our own spiritual life and concerning ourselves only with our own development. For when we are truly introspective at all times, our ego cannot be allowed to take control and that benefits other people and helps them in ways that we cannot even begin to know. As parents, we fully grasp the concept of lead by example. This should be our mantra whether we are parents or not.
We all have so much to learn so why not focus completely on yourself. Make sure that you understand all the lessons that come your way. Make sure that you take the learning out of the lessons that come your way and incorporate them into your life so as to make your life better. It will only be for your own life that you have to answer when you go back home. Yes, you will have to answer for the way that you affected other peoples lives and for your actions towards them. Does it then not make so much more sense for us to make it our life work to better ourselves from a spiritual perspective and to temper our egos? Does it then not make sense that if we do this, we will have achieved and contributed to the growth of all spiritual beings? Just a thought…
