Poems and Stuff / Heal Mother Earth
« Last post by angelbearbp on February 03, 2016, 12:27:56 AM »
My dream job is to travel around the world helping people release all their inner burdens through their tears and thereby purify the earth. In every country there is a center location where we can have ceremonies and give the earth an 'orgasm' by pouring our drops of tears on the ground and talking amongst ourselves about all of our fears, accomplishments, anything we've lost, and  our wildest dreams.

Poems and Stuff / 21 Traits of an Awakening Soul

Here is a very good article! I think I relate to all of these traits!

21 Traits of an Awakening Soul

http://www.wakingtimes.com/2013/05/10/21-traits-of-an-awakening-soul/

You can say its because of a global shift in consciousness, a destiny we have arrived at due to spiritual evolution, or the outcome of strange times, but, many people all across the globe are going through intense personal changes and sensing an expansion of consciousness. Personal changes of this magnitude can be difficult to recognize and to understand, but here are 21 traits of an awakening soul, a ‘sensitive’, or an ‘empath.’

1.  Being in public places is sometimes overwhelming. Since our walls between self and other are dissolving, we haven’t really learned to distinguish between someone else’s energy and our own. If the general mood of the crowd is herd-like or negative, we can feel this acutely, and may feel like retreating into our own private space. When we have recharged our batteries with meditation, spending time in nature, far away from other people, or just sitting in quiet contemplation, we are ready to be with the masses again. In personal relationships, we often will feel someone else’s emotions as our own. It is important to have this higher sense of empathy, but we must learn to allow another person’s emotions while observing them and keeping our empathy, but, realizing that not all emotions belong to us. Social influence can dampen our own innate wisdom.

2.  We know things without having to intellectually figure them out. Often called intuitive awareness, we have ‘a-ha’ moments and insights that can explain some of the most complex theories or phenomenon in the world. Some of the most brilliant minds of our time just ‘know.’ Adepts and sages often were given downloads of information from higher states of consciousness after meditating or being in the presence of a more conscious individual; this is happening for more people with more frequency. As we trust our intuition more often, it grows stronger.  This is a time of ‘thinking’ with our hearts more than our heads. Our guts will no longer be ignored. Our dreams are becoming precognitive and eventually our conscious thoughts will be as well.

3.  Watching television or most of main stream media, including newspapers and many Hollywood movies is very distasteful to us. The mindset that creates much, but not all, of the programming on television and in cinema is abhorrent. It commodifies people and promotes violence. It reduces our intelligence and numbs our natural empathetic response to someone in pain.

4.  Lying to us is nearly impossible. We may not know exactly what truth you are withholding, but we can also tell (with our developing intuition and ESP skills) that something isn’t right. We also know when you have other emotions, pain, love, etc. that you aren’t expressing. You’re an open book to us. We aren’t trained in counter-intelligence, we are just observant and knowing. While we may pick up on physical cues, we can look into your eyes and know what you are feeling.

5.  We may pick up symptoms of your cold, just like men who get morning sickness when their wives are pregnant. Sympathy pains, whether emotional or physical, are something we experience often. We tend to absorb emotion through the solar plexus, considered the place we ‘stomach emotion’ so as we learn to strengthen this chakra center, we may sometimes develop digestive issues. Grounding to the earth can help to re-establish our emotional center. Walking barefoot is a great way to re-ground.

6.  We tend to root for the underdog, those without voices, those who have been beaten down by the matrix, etc. We are very compassionate people, and these marginalized individuals often need more love. People can sense our loving hearts, so complete strangers will often tell us their life stories or approach us with their problems. While we don’t want to be a dumping ground for everyone’s issues, we are also a good ear for those working through their stuff.

7.  If we don’t learn how to set proper boundaries, we can get tired easily from taking on other people’s emotions. Energy Vampires are drawn to us like flies to paper, so we need to be extra vigilant in protecting ourselves at times.

8.  Unfortunately, sensitives or empaths often turn to drug abuse or alcohol to block some of their emotions and to ‘protect’ themselves from feeling the pain of others.

9.  We are all becoming healers. We naturally gravitate toward healing fields, acupuncture, reiki, Qi-Gong, yoga, massage, midwivery, etc. are fields we often find ourselves in. We know that the collective needs to be healed, and so we try our best to offer healing in whatever form we are most drawn to. We also turn away from the ‘traditional’ forms of healing ourselves. Preferring natural foods, herbs, and holistic medicine as ways to cure every ailment.

10.  We see the possibilities before others do. Just like when the church told Copernicus he was wrong, and he stood by his heliocentric theory, we know what the masses refuse to believe. Our minds are light-years ahead.

11.  We are creative. We sing, dance, paint, invent, or write. We have amazing imaginations.

12.  We require more solitude than the average person.

13.  We might get bored easily, but we are really good at entertaining ourselves.

14.  We have a difficult time doing things we don’t want to do or don’t really enjoy. We really do believe life was meant to be an expression of joy. Why waste it doing something you hate? We aren’t lazy, we are discerning.

15.  We are obsessed with bringing the truth to light. Like little children who say, “that’s not fair” we want to right the wrongs of the world, and we believe it often just takes education. We endeavor to explain the unexplainable and find answers to the deep questions of life. We are seekers, in the Campbellian paradigm. ‘The Hero With a Thousand Faces.”

16.  We can’t keep track of time. Our imaginations often get away with us and a day can feel like a minute, a week, a day.

17.  We abhor routine.

18.  We often disagree with authority (for obvious reasons).

19.  We will often be kind, but if you are egotistical or rude, we won’t spend much time with you or find an excuse to not hang out with people who are obsessed with themselves. We don’t ‘get’ people who are insensitive to other people’s feelings or points of view.

20.  We may be vegan or vegetarian because we can sense a certain energy of the food we eat, like if an animal was slaughtered inhumanely. We don’t want to consume negative energy.

21.  We wear our own emotions on our sleeves and have a hard time ‘pretending’ to be happy if we aren’t. We avoid confrontation, But will quietly go about changing the world in ways you can’t even see.

Poems and Stuff / The Universe poem
« Last post by angelbearbp on July 24, 2015, 04:57:52 AM »
Here is a new poem! Enjoy!

-Britney

The Universe

The universe breathes in and out,
A new world bursts into existence,
The world suddenly fades into nothing but black stillness.

The universe breathes in and out,
A new life falls through the open door,
The life is pulled up and feels the door slammed closed.

The universe breathes in and out,
History gets a new author and the book goes on the best seller shelf,
History unfolds more and more and starts to repeat itself.

The universe breathes in and out,
The universe feels fulfilled and satisfied,
The universe takes a long and deep resting break,
The universe peaks one eye open again starts over once more like a cat after a long nap.

Poems and Stuff / Here Are 20 Signs That Say You Love Yourself
« Last post by angelbearbp on July 02, 2015, 01:11:30 AM »
Here Are 20 Signs That Say You Healthily Love Yourself

1. You practice gratitude.
You appreciate certain things in your life and you genuinely say, ‘Thank you’ for them. You don’t feel you are owed these things, instead you feel blessed you can experience them.
2. You have a self-healing practice.
You either meditate, pray, do yoga, or write a journal to name a few. These practices help you stay sane, balanced, and healthy.
3. You let yourself ‘feel the feelings.’
Good or bad feelings, you allow yourself to experience them. You acknowledge that all of your feelings are valid. This doesn’t mean you dwell – especially when feeling angry or sad – but you understand it’s healthy to feel every emotion.
4. You choose healthy foods for yourself.
You care about your well-being to feed yourself appropriately — not too much and not too little. You try to buy organic, grass-fed, pasture-raised, and consciously farmed foods, but you’re practical enough to eat at a restaurant without too much ado. You also indulge once in a while because sometimes it’s worth it. (I <3 Nutella =)
5. You move to feel good.
Many things qualify as ‘exercise’ for you. It’s about staying healthy, feeling energized, and keeping a balanced lifestyle.  Your health is important to you because you see your body as a temple where your soul resides. Plainly, you want to be good to your body.
6. You try to improve yourself.
“We do the best we can with what we know, and when we know better, we do better.” – Maya Angelou
You are no stranger to self-help and motivational books because self-improvement is important to you. It’s not about focusing on what you’re lacking, it’s about strengthening who you are already.
7. You give yourself ‘me’ time.
You’ve come to realize that alone time for you is essential. This is the time when you collect your thoughts, slow down, and give yourself a break. You love being on the go, but you know that you can only go so far without burning out. ‘Me’ time is when you recharge.
8. You have beauty rituals.
You pamper yourself because it feels good. You take care of your skin, hair, nails, and get massages when you can. These rituals are rewarding and make you feel beautiful. You believe you deserve to feel beautiful.
9. You dress to impress yourself.
Your appearance is important to you. You want to express your feelings and state of mind with your personal style. At work, you want to be seen as professional. When you’re out, you want to be care-free. At home, you just want to be cozy and comfortable.
What’s great is that you can dress in all these ways and still be you. You have many sides and it calls for a change in wardrobe! (Own your style mama!)

10. You let your goddess out.
Discovering the goddess within you is empowering. As a goddess is powerful, you ‘owning’ your goddess persona is you claiming your power. Your goddess powers help you to do right by you. It helps you to hold yourself in high-regard and realize how you want to be treated – and that is with love and respect.
11. You stand up for yourself.
You believe you deserve to be treated well. You don’t tolerate disrespect or meanness from others. Speaking your mind and heart is a show of strength.
12. You have positive affirmations.
Staying healthy and balanced in mind, body, and spirit takes an effort. In this way, you have several life ‘mottos’ that keep you grounded, happy, motivated, and moving forward. A good affirmation can pick you up and turn your day around.
13. You value your relationships.
You work on them by keeping in touch, doing kind things, and respecting their feelings. The quality and contentment of your relationships are a reflection of your state of mind and belief systems. Practicing self-love and self-care promotes healthy relationships in all areas of your life.
14. You permit yourself to shine.
This can mean several things such as being awesome in the work place to unleashing your creative juices. Whatever it calls for – you let yourself be amazing.
Marianne Williamson in her book, A Return to Love: Reflections on the Principles of ‘A Course in Miracles’ – said…
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, ‘Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?’ Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
15. You praise others for shining.
Because you healthily love yourself, you can easily praise and support another person’s good fortune and talent. When more people shine, the world becomes a brighter place. (Be the light sister!)
16. You listen to your intuition.
You trust your gut instinct and listen to it readily. In this way you’ve learned what works for you and what doesn’t. You utilize this sensory power to keep you safe, informed, and in harmony with your surroundings.
17. You expect good things to happen to you.
This idea is not about entitlement, it’s about knowing you are fully loved and supported by the universe and so you are eager to receive your blessings. You constantly put love and goodness out into the world, therefore you believe love and goodness are on its way to you. (It’s physics – yo!)
18. You go after your dreams.
“You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream.” – C.S. Lewis
Your dreams are what motivate you to be a better person, contribute to society, and excel in life. Loving and trusting yourself has given you the confidence to pursue your life purpose.
19. You smile at your reflection.
You like the person you’ve become. All your experiences – hard and sweet – have molded you into the woman staring back at you. Growing to love yourself has taken some time and finally accepting all your imperfections – priceless.
20. You are humble.
Humility is part of having healthy self-love. Self-love is about compassion for oneself; to understand and forgive ones frailty. Your healthy self-love says that you are willing to see past your shortcomings and are hopeful to witness your potential.
