How do you use technology?

Dear ones, do you use your technology mindfully in support of your highest good, your health and wholeness?

Or does your glowing little screen rule your life and keep you corralled and dependent? Does it limit your freedom?

Some of the human created reality blasted into your brain each day is meant to get you hooked and addicted to the content others have curated and chosen for you to digest and believe. I ask you for your health and well being to become an expert at discernment, to choose wisely what you will consume.

Think about this. When feelings of self worth come to you from the outside in, they are not genuine, not the real thing. True self worth and autonomy grow organically from the center of your being in partnership with source and radiate outward to enrich the web of life and all beings.

The phony, the fake, that which is chosen to root into your mind and addict you is not in your highest good. The words images are chosen just for you to make you feel insecure, to make you want things, to limit your creativity, to make you click and spend, to make you forget your true self and to make you believe this fake reality this phony feeling of connection is better than the real thing.

In your true and deep and abiding heart, in some corner of your mind your intuition knows who you really are and what is right for you. Do not sell or hand over your most precious gift for anything!

Use your technology wisely and well. You are the boss of your life! Make technology your servant.

You and Your Device

Beware! Does your shiny sleek blinking device deceive you and keep you from the life you might otherwise be living?

Your every move, every word cataloged, categorized, tracked. You become a subject in a huge experiment.

The world created and projected within your little object into your brain is meant to addict you and lure you away from the everyday world of feeling what you feel in your body and heart.

Do these examples describe you or someone you love?

Your device can pull you away from knowing at your core who you really are, your connection with nature and true connection with other flesh and blood human beings.

Empty nest

The costs can include forgetting how to truly listen to another, forgetting how to feel real empathy and compassion for others, not knowing how to navigate boredom through creativity, forgetting how to relate in intimate ways with those around you, and an ignoring of the reality around you.

Factor these costs in when you tote up price of your phone and service.

Does your shiny device scream “Look at me! Pay attention to me! I am more real than your so called reality. I can solve all your problems so easily! I can make you feel better with the swipe of a finger, a touch on a screen.”?

If any of this sounds like you, please reevaluate your relationship with your sleek and shiny device.

Make sure you are the master of your device and not its servant.

Fill yourself

When you feel an empty place inside, a feeling of envy, malice, a bottomless fear, you’ve tapped into a “negative space”, a void. Only you can fill and heal these voids and vacant places in your psyche.

Alcohol, smoking, food, mind altering drugs, sex, money will not fill these voids. They may help you forget, ignore, or pretend they don’t exist for a time, but soon the void will reappear, yawning, dark and bottomless.

Full moon, Autumn

The only way to wholeness is for you to face the void and empty places within you, acknowledge them, breathe, and fill them with self compassion, with loving energy, color, healing sounds, with light that fills and permeates and illuminates the dark places, and dissolves the shadows.

This love and healing energy must come from your center, the spark of spirit within you. You must kindle and tend your inner flame, for no-one else knows your true heart, your true center as you do.

Ask to be made whole with the energies of light and love. You will be shown the way.

In this way, you can gradually heal yourself and heal your spirit. Ask for help if you feel overwhelmed. You are not alone!

Fill yourself to overflowing with light. Know that is enough.

You can feel better!

Over the years of your life, energy, inspirations, emotions, feelings, ideas, thoughts, fears that you block and deny and push down have nowhere else to go but to stay in your energy field. The energies that makes up these thoughts get stuck, build up and accumulate like heavy storm clouds.

Storm clouds and prairie grasses

If you are sensitive, you feel the extra weight, the heaviness. Does it hold you back, press you down like a weighted blanket, a back pack full of stones?

It is not your work to carry this weight. You can clear and release it with patience, courage, commitment.

Foreign substances in your body will not solve the problem, will not clear the clouds, but only allow you to pretend for a short time.

Tap into your emotions, the buried ones, the old and stale ones, the emotions that flash through when something triggers you. You must focus and feel the emotions within you. You do not have to react to them. Simply feeling and acknowledging is enough.

The emotion is not you, it is energy that is meant to flow through you.  I am telling you, you can feel better!

Find help if the emotions feel overwhelming. It is like learning to walk, learning to read. This is a life-saving skill you can learn, and it will set you free.

Begin again

Do not lose heart, dear ones. At any moment you may drop the habits, thoughts, patterns, behaviors, and blocked emotions of the past – those that hold you back, those that hurt others or yourself.

It could happen instantly, when you have made the decision at a deep level. You finally lay down the last cigarette, set aside the sugar for good, and never look back. Or, it may be a gradual process of noticing the harm and how your body feels, the emotions, the thoughts, and wanting to feel better.

It may be that you need the help of others to move forward. There are many who can help you find your way to the light at your pace, in your time.

You will feel expanding awareness and compassion for yourself as you choose life over addiction or unhappiness, as you choose to feel good to the depths of your soul, not just the surface of your being.

You get to begin again and make a new choice. Each moment is an opportunity for a new choice.

Do you choose health and wholeness? Do you choose to move toward the light? Do you choose to love yourself? Do you choose thoughts and actions that uplift you, and by extension those around you?

Take a new action in this moment to cement your choice!

Dear ones, know this whatever choices you make, you are dearly loved and desired here on this place at this time. You can feel better, you do not have to stay stuck in old harmful patterns. You can thrive!
