It’s Not Me–It’s You. It’s Not You–It’s Me. It’s Both. It’s Neither – Newsletter October 2021

When we come from a place of It’s Not Me – It’s You, we project our fears and feelings onto the other.

Ultimately, we are all responsible for the feelings that arise in us. Projecting our feelings back at the other is an attempt to deflect owning our feelings. And rather than get angry, defensive, or blame the other – it is more productive to respond calmly. 

When we come from a place of It’s Not You – It’s Me, we internalize how the other made us feel.

We are also responsible for any feelings we internalize, bury, and hide from the other. And rather than allowing our emotions to stew and later erupt or morph into passive-aggressive attitudes or behaviors, it is more productive to speak up calmly – but confidently.

Later, we can look to understand why we allow another to make us feel bad and how we allow them to treat us in the way they do. (Sign-Up  to receive my Free Monthly Newsletter where I cover a variety of subjects related to our personal development).

Whether we project or internalize, we take personally what the other said, did, didn’t say, didn’t do, or how they reacted or didn’t react. Don’t take things personally is one of the four agreements from … 

 The Four Agreements, by Don Miguel Ruiz – My Recommended Book of the Month

When People Disagree or One Feels Hurt, or Gets Disappointed or Disillusioned

?It’s Both of Us: because when issues arise, both are coming from a place of misalignment from love. One is unaware that they are feeling bad because of their misalignment; the other is unaware that they are behaving in hurtful ways that stem from their misalignment.

And …

?It’s Neither of Us: Our true reality is that we are love. However, we are disconnected from that love. So, when issues arise, both are coming from a place of misalignment from that love – unaware that they are simply feeling bad or acting out from that place of misalignment.

With this understanding that It Is Both of Us – and – It Is Neither of Us – and knowing that each is unaware that they are feeling or reacting from this place of misalignment, it is easier to understand and forgive how the other is showing up.

To shift from It’s Not Me–It’s You – or – It’s Not You–It’s Me” – to – “It’s Both – It’s Neither” we must …

? Come from a place of honesty and authenticity within ourselves

? Bring the qualities of love – calmness, compassion, understanding, forgiveness, acceptance, and harmony to the other.

And to get there, it helps to …

? Remember that we are all somewhat misaligned from our true reality – from the love we are at our core

? Recognize that you cannot always feel love and are therefore not always able to come from a place of love

? Rather than hide or deflect your thoughts and feelings, allow them to arise honestly within yourself. And if need be …

? Express how you feel – honestly and calmly to the other – without blame or judgment

?Aim to consciously bring the qualities of love to your dealings with others.

If our default is to blame, judge, or react aggressively or be overly passive (being overly-passive is not loving ourselves), making the shift to being loving to ourselves and others takes time and practice.

A trick I learned when I studied A Course in Miracles that helped me overcome my default and make conscious shifts to come from a place of love was to ask myself: What Would Love Do?

A Course in Miracles is a profound self-study that guides us to see others and life from a place of love. We learn to respond calmly and with fairness, compassion, and acceptance – rather than from the ego’s fear-based thought system with its propensity to blame, judge, and defend. (You can read my associated post, What Would Love Do? by clicking on the above link).

We Are All Somewhat Misaligned from Love – from Our True Reality

 Most of us were not taught that we are misaligned from our essence – from love. It was on my journey of personal development that I learned that it is this misalignment that causes us to act and react in unloving ways – towards ourselves and others.

We are not bad – or wrong. We may act badly, hurt others, or do wrong things,

but we are not bad or wrong at our core. We can repair, but we should never feel ashamed.

We inherited these hurtful and defensive ways of being from eons past.

I learned that once, whether on earth, in another form, or before the big bang, we were “at one with God”– connected to love. At some point, a separation occurred. We became disconnected from that part of ourselves where we were in complete connection to love and automatically expressed love outwards – to everything and everyone.

This disconnect shifted our approach from one of love to one of fear. We went from a me-and-you way of navigating life to one of me-versus-you.

Our connection to love gave us a solid power base that allowed us to express the qualities of love easily – without limitations. We felt empowered.

Fear robbed us of our solid power base. We were disconnected, and we felt disempowered.  As this fear-based way of approaching life played out, fear’s qualities like judgment, blame, anger, shame, greed, competitiveness, protectiveness, defensiveness, small-mindedness, etc.., took hold.

Survival became our main raison d’être, and we pitted ourselves against one another. We were unaware that we were all (perpetrators and victims) influenced by inherited ways from past generations. My quote of the month is from my book, Why We Are the Way We Are

You Cannot Overcome What You Are Unaware of and Unwilling to Look At

Humanity became trapped in these fear-based ways of approaching life, passed on from civilization to civilization. From generation to generation! They became anchored into our DNA – to the point that we were no longer aware that we were living life from an unnatural mindset.

It is Humanity’s evolutionary time to shift out of this mindset and its fear-based ways of being. And it is happening!

As a society, we didn’t know – or were afraid to face that we were holding onto old, outdated ways of being. Society’s tentacles are complex and have a very long reach. Change is scary! The unknown is scary.

As individuals, we haven’t known – or were afraid to face that we were holding onto old, outdated ways of being. Until recently, we didn’t realize that we should – or could change the ways of being and navigating life that we grew up with.

It is scary to look within to our attitudes, thought processes, and behavior patterns – to open the door to realizing that we may have thought or acted in unhelpful and hurtful ways.

???

Our thought processes and default ways of being are nothing to be ashamed of. We now know that we inherited unhelpful and disempowering ways of being from our past. It is not our fault that we internalize our feelings and feel hurt. Or that we project our feelings and act badly towards others.

This knowledge gives us the assurance that we can look at our default ways of being – without fear or shame. so that we can shift from … It’s Not Me–It’s You / It’s Not You–It’s Me – to – It’s Both / It’s Neither …  because …

… when issues arise, both of us are coming from a place of misalignment from love – inherited from our pasts – and unaware that we are simply feeling bad or acting badly from that place of misalignment.

I wish you a beautiful rest of the Fall.  Stay safe, and warm???

The Universal Law of Cause and Effect (Part 5 in series of 8 on Universal Law)

The premise of the Law of Cause and Effect is that for every cause there is an effect!

(This is the 5th article is from a series of 8 on Universal Law. Link to other 7 are at end).

Most belief systems tell us that creation codes were set out at the beginning of the Universe and that cosmic forces are always at play – and that many affect us. Often called the Universal Laws, many of them are similar and/or overlap.

For example, the Law of Cause and Effect is not dissimilar to the Law of Attraction, but it is just a little more specific.

I base the Law of Cause and Effect I am putting forth here on concepts in A Course in Miracles, but it is also deemed one of the ancient Hermetic Laws. The idea is basically the same: for every cause, there is an effect.

For us, the Law of Cause and Effect explains how we can become the cause of our life experiences, rather than at the effect of unconscious influences that run our lives or of the world around us.

This article/blog post is based in concepts from my books

“Your Journey to Peace … “ here  for About  

“Why We Are the Way We Are” here for About

(Available in print and e-book, Cover images are below)

The Eastern concept of karma is another well-known concept that offers an explanation of how some of the laws of the Universe, including the Law of Cause and Effect, play out for us.

The Law of Cause and Effect is really just a different way of explaining karma, whose premise is what we send out into the world will be returned to us – good or bad.

Many have confused God’s revenge with the karmic Law of Cause and Effect playing out in our lives.

What we experience are just the creation codes of the Universe playing out.

  • Thoughts create attitudes.
  • Attitudes create actions.
  • For every action there is a reaction.
  • For every push there is a pull.
  • For every pull there is a push-back.

The Bible tells us that we will sow what we reap – that the quality of what we put out there (cause) is what will be returned to us (effect).

Within complete Oneness there is no duality. No Karma. No Cause and Effect. No Action and Reaction. Because as Arten tells us in Gary Renard’s The Disappearance of the Universe, most of our reactions and actions come from a need to release because the world of duality we live in is characterized by “tension and release.” (1)

Cause and Effect and the Universe

As everything in our Universe is expanding and in a state of flux, something is directing things – causing them to move, change, grow, or come into existence.

The Universal Law of Cause and Effect

Stanislav Grof tells us in The Holotropic Mind that when physicists explored the micro world, they concluded that objects are actually an interweaving “complex web of unified events and relationships.” Something causes something to happen. In science they use the term Causality. Cause = Effect. (2)

Grof then concluded that “consciousness does not just passively reflect the material world; it plays an active role in creating reality itself.” The hypothesis is that there must be a consciousness that is directing – creating. (3)

Cause and Effect and Us

We are consciousness. We are reality. We therefore have an active role in the creation process. In our creation process. Active role = Intention. Intention is Decisiveness. Decisiveness can Direct. We can Direct. We can Direct our Thoughts and Actions at will. We can become the Cause rather than be at the Effect of our unconscious choices or the world around us.

What are the root-causes of our experiences? Are they conscious, or unconscious? Directed, or whatever …? Are we aware? Do we think about it? Do we care? Are we responsive, or Reactive? Do we want to choose our life experiences, or allow them to happen willy-nilly?

Do we want to be the cause of our life experiences, or be at the effect of our unconscious mind or the world around us? The Law of Cause and Effect builds on the premise of the Law of Attraction. We now understand through the Law of Attraction that we bring into our lives that which we ask for with our vibrations.

So, it only follows that if we want a different experience than what we are getting, we need to change our vibrations to reflect what we want. To Direct them so we can be the cause of our experiences.

It also follows that if we act and react unconsciously, unaware of the vibrations we are emitting, we are at the effect of our unconscious – we are not the cause – not the Directive of our life.

To invite better experiences into our life, we do not even have to be aware of this vibrational shift or the idea of cause and effect. The understanding of this vibrational aspect and of cause and effect has not in the past been at the forefront of psychology programs or Western religious teaching. However, in the past few decades many of us have gone searching for truths that were kept hidden from us.

The Universal Law of Cause and Effect

Much has recently been discovered and we now understand that attitudes and the vibrations they give off affect all areas of our life. And any who have made conscious positive shifts in attitudes have raised their vibrations and experienced the benefits of being the cause of new experiences, rather than at the effect of past ones – those that were not giving them what they wanted.

The Law of Cause and Effect plays out in our lives – whether we are aware of it or not.

So, we might as well use it to our advantage – to create the life we want.

When we become conscious of the affects our thoughts, attitudes, and behaviors have, or will have, on ourselves, our life, and on others and choose those that will give us the affects we want we are using the Law of Cause and Effect as intended – to be the Directors of our life creations – of our life.

Understanding Universal Law – Part 3/3

In parts 1 and 2 of Understanding Universal Law I discussed how even though the Universal Laws are over-arching principles of how the Universe works they also pertain to us because we too exist within the same Universal matrix. (Link to parts 1 and 2 below)

I also discussed their history and showed that all major religions and thought systems offer us at least the concepts held within the major and well-known Universal Laws.

Here are the first 3 Universal Laws from Part 2, as well as the next 3 – all excepted from my newly released book, Why We Are the Way We Are (info on book below).

1st,the Law of Openness denotes that we have to be in a state of receptivity to be able to access the love, joy, sense of empowerment and other gifts available to us from the Universe.

2nd, the Law of Authenticity indicates that we need to come from an honest place within ourselves. We must understand where our motivations come from.

3rd, the well-known Law of Attraction confirms that we are vibration and maintains the principles that “like attracts like” and “we are the creator of our own realities.”

4th, the Law of Cause and Effect clarifies that we are the cause of our experiences, not at the effect of the world around us.

5th, the Law of Balance suggests that we should strive to live in a way that promotes a sense of equilibrium in our lives and harmony in our beings. To become balanced, we also have to make peace with all parts of ourselves as well as the world around us.

And finally, the Law of Expansion comes into play in our lives once the other laws are well integrated into our beings, whereby the exponential function allows us to take a sharp upward turn and expand into all that we can be.

This is an except from my new book, Why We Are the Way We Are 

(Book 1 of my new ‘Our Journeys to Peace’ Series)

See Here for About Book. (Available in print and e-book from Amazon)

Universal Law and the Planes of Existence

Universal Law and its principles apply to, link, and govern the various planes of existence – the physical, the mental, and the spiritual. Everything in the physical plane is either in a phase of growth, or decay.

The mental plane, or consciousness, is either in a state of thinking, planning, or creating – whether through the individual or the collective mind.

The spiritual plane embodies the All – the Oneness: it sees the big picture. Our higher Self resides on this spiritual plane. This is why it is always encouraging us to understand the big picture and to embrace attitudes that align with the qualities of Oneness.

Even though we and our bodies are on the physical plane, aligning with the Universal Laws allows us to access the spiritual plane – and all that it embodies.

When our vibrations are aligned with the principles of the Universal Laws, they are in harmony with those of the universal creative force and we can tap into its unconditional love and the power it holds.

Understanding Universal Law - Part 3/3

Being positive, joyful, having hope, having an open heart, and being fearless are some of the qualities that align us with universal flow. So do all aspects of love and anything that upholds harmony and aims to unite.

When we are being negative, closed off, angry, judgmental, despondent, or pessimistic etc., we are distanced from universal flow, and by default we are stuck within the restrictions of our human limitations. Our power-base is weak and unconditional love is almost inaccessible.

Partnering Up Consciously – Separating Consciously (Part 2 of 2)

The more we evolve, the more we will be able to easily trust that our hearts are showing us a true picture when choosing a life-partner (or even friends or a business partner).

(Link to Part 1 is below)

We will no longer need to be so wary of our unconscious influences luring us into bad situations or have to be so vigilant at continuously examining our emotions, desires, or motives.

Nor will we have to be so cautious of others’ motives. As we will be working at high vibration capacities, our radars will be well attuned to the vibrations of others and if something is off we will cue into it quickly.

The greater our connection to our True Self the more we feel guided towards partners based on true soul parings where we encourage each other to be the best we can be.

Partnering Up Consciously - Separating Consciously (Part 2 of 2)

And because our strength and self-confidence comes from within, we are not invested in changing our partner or making them acquiesce to our desires.

We also understand that our partner gets his or her strength and guidance from their True Self, and if that guidance is calling them to move on from the relationship we will not be so inclined towards drama, anger, revenge, or the plethora of negative responses breaking up has caused in the past.

As well as partnering up consciously, we can also separate consciously.

In our most recent history an intact family provided the foundations we needed to grow emotionally healthy, and when divorce or separations occurred, even if the family life was not perfect, the children felt like the rug was pulled out from under them.

This sense of loss is somewhat due to changed circumstances, but much of it is due to the way we separate and divorce. The sense of security children feel when surrounded by unconditional love when growing up is like God’s unconditional love for us.

As we become more evolved individually and are more closely connected to our True Selves, our separations will occur without the dire effects that has been so common and fueled by hurt, anger, rage, revenge, and blame.

We are already encouraging our children to look into their hearts and trust their inner guidance, and so their connection to their True Self is stronger than in past generations. This gives them an inner-strength that follows them everywhere.

Partnering Up Consciously - Separating Consciously (Part 2 of 2)As couples are inspired to separate or divorce with integrity, they will honor the promises made and will be able to agree on shared child rearing duties, day-to-day obligations, and fair distribution of finances.

The children will then be much less inclined to internalize the effects of the break-up and succumb to dysfunctional attitudes or behaviors, or pass on the effects of unresolved issues regarding their parents’ separation onto their own children.

The Universal Law of Authenticity – Part 1 of 2 (And 3 of 8 in my series on Universal Law)

The Law of Authenticity follows the Law of Openness because our heart has to first be open to universal flow for us to feel joy, inner-peace, connect to what will truly make us happy, and become our Best Self.

For Part 2 see HERE

(This is the 3rd article from my series of 8 on Universal Law. Links to other 7 are at end)

To embrace the Law of Authenticity we must come from an honest place within our self – from our heart-space – in touch with our soul – our True Self.

To be truly authentic our heart must be fully open: we must be in touch with that honest place within our self.

Our hearts are often somewhat open and we may feel moments of joy, sometimes connect to what makes us happy, and have inklings of what our Best Self looks like.

At the same time, we may have a vague feeling that we are not in touch with the part of our self that inspires us to become all that we can be. We are not fully in touch with our True Self – the core of who we are our essence – our authentic self.

This article/blog post is based in concepts from my books

Your Journey to Peace … “  About Book  here 

  Why We Are the Way We AreAbout Book  here 

(Both available in print and e-book, Cover images below)

We may have unknowingly erected barriers that weaken our confidence, influence our thought-processes, block inspiration, and stifle our creativity.

When in touch with our essence our authentic self – and connected to our True Self we feel assured and are confident in our value and strengths. We feel inspired.

We act on our inspirations. We use our strengths to bring them to fruition. We go after what we want.

We view others and the world from a clear, unbiased framework without the need to blame or judge. From this clarity we can bring forth all that we were meant to be. We do not need to puff our self up, yield to popular attitudes or beliefs, or succumb to pressure from others.

Our True Self is continuously expressing to us in ways that guide us to become our Best Self. But we must hear it.

We cannot hear what it is attempting to convey if unconscious influences run our lives. If we live in fear. Are in denial of truths about our self. Or hold strong to outdated beliefs or ideals.

Our unconscious influences are ruled by our created Self. Negative reactionary attitudes and/or behaviors may have emerged as a result of unhealed emotional wounds.

We may have adopted defense mechanisms to protect who we feel we need to be. Unmet emotions may have created neediness in us.

As these come from deep within we think that they are true expressions of who we are – that we are being authentic when we feel and express in these ways. But we are not being truly authentic.

Everything Stems from Either Love or Fear

We are not connected to our essence. Yes, at this moment in time this is how we feel. But our feeling and the urges to react in negative and disharmonious ways are not coming from a pure place.  

Negatively charged reactions and defense mechanisms are automatic. Erratic. Highly emotional. They come from unaddressed hurts or issues.

They may show themselves as anger, control, impatience, or defensiveness, etc. They are often loud and forceful.

Or, they may show up as passive-aggressiveness, which appears subtler but holds an internal emotional component that will eventually rear its ugly head and cause disharmony.

These emotionally charged ways of reacting block the connection to our True Self. Neediness causes us to emotionally attach our desires, expectations, and happiness onto others, bypassing the connection to our True Self.

Today’s Understanding of Angels and Miracles (part 2 / 2)

(Link for Part 1 of this article is below)

Demystifying Miracles

Miracles are usually associated with healing or the manipulation of elements, such as a spontaneous healing, a yogi bending spoons with his mind, or Jesus turning water into wine.

The answer to an impossible prayer/request is also often considered a miracle, as are events that defy reason or probabilities, such as having the strength to lift a car off a trapped person.

The limited perspective of the linear, third-dimensional awareness most of us exist under does not allow us to see or understand what cannot be explained by our physical laws.

The higher the level of consciousness we exist under, the more easily we can connect to the universal forces, where the laws of time, space, and form are easily overcome.

Check out my newly released book, Why We Are the Way We Are, Book 1 of my new ‘Our Journeys to Peace’ Series here

Why we are the Way We are

Engaging our higher, supernatural God-selves, we become attuned to the organic, quantum makeup of the elements. Just as we can direct our hands to move a book, in advanced states we can manipulate the elements with our consciousness. Enlightened yogis and the Masters all attained these high states enabling them to overcome the physical laws.

When we partner-up with Spirit, or invoke higher-realm beings in our meditations or prayers, physical laws can be overcome, as those in higher states can make what seems impossible happen for us. Synchronicities happen.

Not all miracles are physical; some are mental or emotional, such as having a change of heart or attitude.

The word miracle in A Course in Miracles proposes that every second of every minute of every day, and with regard to anybody and within every situation, even minor shifts in our attitudes or though processes from those based in fear to those based in love* are considered miracles.

Each positive shift in attitude raises our consciousness, changes our vibration and trajectory, and as we are all connected changes those of Humanity.

Today's Understanding of Angels and Miracles (part 2 / 2)Every shift to a love-based attitude helps to alleviate the fear-based paradigm that is keeping us all tied to the limitations of third-dimensional living.

Here for my new ‘Our Journeys to Peace’ Series 

(Links to my blog, newsletter, and FB page are below)

In “Your Journey to Peace …  ” I also explain how finding our Best Self allows us

  • to connect to inner joy,
  • become empowered in all areas of our life,
  • improve our relationships, and
  • find ways to live in harmony with those all around us.

I intertwine the many spiritual and religious concepts and philosophies with other areas of study and concerns that I discovered were related to our personal journeys, such as science, our health, our connection to the Planet, the necessity of reconciliation with those we have disempowered, and the importance of our relationship to the Indigenous peoples.

As I weave these all together, I explain how each little positive attitude shift or behavior change we make causes a ripple effect that not only elevates Humanity, but affects the Universe as a whole.

Newsletter, November 2018 – Self-honesty / Honesty With Others


 

Self-honesty / Honesty With Others

We hear a lot about the importance of being honest with others, but most of us don’t realize that being honest with ourselves is what allows us to be honest with others.

When we are honest with ourselves – in touch with and accepting of our feelings we can afford to be honest with others. We are not in denial of our emotions; not fearful others will discover something we don’t want to share or discuss. Our hearts are clear and open. We are able to have intimate conversations with people. To speak our truth. Confident enough to explain where we are coming from, and why. To “bare our souls,” if appropriate.

October 2018 Newsletter – Making Changes / Embracing New Ideas

As Humanity continues to evolve, we are all being guided to shift, change, and be open to new ideas.

Society is evolving. It is making major shifts in how we deal with each other. We are embracing new ideas- like fairness and equality for all. We are changing how we view others. How we treat people – no matter how different they are than us. This is not easy for everyone, however, to create the world we all want society has to change its perspective.

Individuals are also being guided – nudged to evolve. To shift ideas we have created of how our lives should be. Things around us are changing. Evolving. And we have to adapt. Universal forces are pushing us to replace what is keeping us living life from a limited perspective to embracing what will open us up to greater possibilities.
