(Couldn’t resist)

Happy synchronicity abounds on May 25th, annually. It is my Fourth Year Blogiversary. My very first friend here at Word Press was om, and her blog, EyesOfOdysseus, was my first followed, or one of the first, and today happens to be her birthday as well. Imagine that, and we only discovered this synchronicity last year. om is a very good friend, who I cherish, and love dearly.

So Happy Birthday to om, and to my blog, bluebutterfliesandme~

I know that we have a great year in store for us!

Thank you everyone who supports me here. I wish I had more time to visit and read you all. You all have great stories, articles, insights, inspiration, talent, and so on. I mean it, and I do value you. I am humbled by everyone. Lots of Gratitude & Big love~

What does one do on a free day? A day virtually stress free, a day with one’s own company. Well we time travel of course. Joking. I have however been into some very deep reading, other than Earth, by Marciniak, I have been reading articles on Quantum theories, Quantum mechanics, about the various physicist. My friend says it is the Sagittarius influence. Wild synchronous events, and those little aha moments abound. You know those odd occurrences when while sitting in your car waiting to go into work, you see someone that looks like a gal you used to work with, but it isn’t her, so you spend a minute remembering them, and then they pop up. Or the two people closest to you independently watch the Hawking documentary on PBS. Stuff like that.

I had planned on reading Mary Shelley’s, Frankenstein, this summer, so I have been looking for it at the thrift stores, and found lots of other books, but no Frankenstein. “I know what to do. I will go to the public library,” They have one copy and it was out, the librarian says, “Funny, another lady was looking for it today as well.” I ask did she need it for school? The librarian said, “No she said she just wanted to read it, and was going to the book store.” lol I guess its not so incredible, but it amused me.

I bought more books, always buying books,

8 Simple Ways To Reach A Higher Vibration

By, Jenna Wylie

We all have times where life isn’t clear and we feel like we’re walking through mud. Here are a few tips to help us find more happiness and fulfillment, and make it through the ups and downs!

1. Sleep

Now for those of us who aren’t mentally on top of our game, sleep (too much or the inability to sleep at all) may be a nightly battle. A few tips to more restful sleep:

  • Spend time earthing every day. This means getting your bare feet in contact with the ground. The earth’s energy is very healing and there is a lot of evidence that when we connect with the earth our circadian rhythm becomes more normalized, thus helping us sleep and wake up at healthy times. You can even make or buy grounding pads to sleep on to maximize the benefits of earthing.
  • Create a good sleep environment. Cool and dark works best for most people. Try to keep your room as free of electronics as possible. There is evidence that EMF’s can be a cause of insomnia and sleeping disorders. Turn your phone on airplane mode and leave your computer in another room or away from the bed. Be aware of walls with lots of hidden wires, or smart meters on the outside wall of your bedroom.
  • Before you go to sleep, write down everything that is on your mind. List the things that are bothering you or that you’re worried about or just the thoughts that won’t leave you alone. A ‘brain dump’ so to speak, that you can leave on your nightstand to think about tomorrow.

2. Spend Time Outside

It is easy to hide away indoors when we are feeling ‘off’ but going outside and spending time in nature can be soothing and very healing.

Whether it’s going for a walk, playing an outdoor sport, or simply splattering yourself out on the lawn (my personal favorite,) reconnect with mother earth to find inner peace.

3. Hang with the Right People

“You become like the 5 people you spend the most time with.”

Even on my lowest days, my husband always manages to poke through my walls and make me laugh. His ability to love me on any kind of day gives me safety and support that is priceless.

 We are deeply entangled with the people around us. It is so important to spend our time with people who bring balance and don’t constantly drain our energy or fill us with negativity.

Sometimes this means letting go of someone. Spend your time with those who lift you up, love you, and encourage you to be your true self.

4. Get in this MOMENT

“The secret to change is to focus all of your energy not on fighting the old, but on building the new”

~ Socrates~

In his book ‘The Screwtape Letters,’ C.S. Lewis tells of letters written from a senior Demon Screwtape to his nephew Woodworm, a junior ‘tempter.’ Woodworm is responsible for the undoing or damnation of a certain human referred to as ‘The Patient.’

One of the demons’ tactics is to keep The Patient focusing constantly on the past or future. They know that if they successfully keep him from thinking about the moment, if he is consistently stuck on things in past or future, he will never be able to accomplish what is important in the now.

Do what it takes to let go of the past. Who you are today is more important than anything you have been, and will determine who you will be. Learn how to pull yourself back into the present.

5. Be Honest

A lot of anxiety and sadness comes when we lie to ourselves or those around us. This also applies to times when we ‘hide’ from those we love out of fear. The truth is, people who truly love us will keep loving us no matter what.

It is easier in the end to be honest and upfront with those close to us than to bury ourselves behind a good face.

I heard once that we all have three selves: who we are when we’re alone, who we are when we’re with close friends/family, and who we are when we’re in the general public.

The closer these three selves come together, the happier and more content we will be. We need to learn to to be true to ourselves, to be free, and to give others the same privilege.

6. Find Your Confidence

When depression sets in, when anxiety wrings you dry, when you’re in a fog and just aren’t sure of anything anymore… breathe. Remember that you are a piece of the universe. You are one with the stars and the galaxies and the birds above your rain clouds.

Look deep inside and find that connection with God or the Universe or Mother Earth, and know that you are not alone. This moment of dark won’t last.

Feel what needs to be felt and then hold your chin up and face your demons with power. This life is yours. Though your mind and ego may seem to hold the reins, in reality they belong to you and you are the master.

7. Balance Your Chakras

A lot of instability emotionally comes from your energy being unbalanced. This can happen for many reasons, and is often subconscious until you pay specific attention.

Balancing your chakras is an excellent way to meditate, clear muddy energy, process emotions that are stuck, and become more in tune with yourself. Here is a simple method I’ve found effective:

  • You can do this anywhere anytime but I’ve found it is easiest if you are somewhere comfortable where you can relax. Lay down or lean back in your chair.Take some deep breathes and try to let go of external distractions. Focus on your breathing and on feeling your body.
  • Let yourself focus on your energy. It surrounds you, runs through you, and is in constant motion. It is connected with the earth and the universe and everything that is in you.
  • Start at the bottom and either physically or in your mind hold your hand over the chakra, and move it clock-wise motion with the flow of energy. This is more about feeling than thinking. Focus on the flow and whether or not it feels fluid and clear. If not, focus on the imbalance. Is there physical discomfort? Thoughts or images that come up? Accept, process, and continue in motion with the energy until it is clear.
  • Move up to the next chakra and repeat. Continue until you’ve gone through each chakra individually.

For more specifics about the chakras, please see here.

8. Spend Some Time With an Animal

Who doesn’t feel better after cuddling a puppy? Or having a kitten on their lap? Or even getting to hold a big reptile? For me, almost nothing compares to being with horses.

Their beauty and power have always touched a deep place inside of me. Animals, because they accept and love us so easily, have great ability to help us accept ourselves and experience healing. Go play with a pet!

Here’s to all of us and our journey and the growth that comes with it. May we find in ourselves our greatest potential and happiness!

Living Library

DSC_1104

I haven’t mentioned it but I have been rereading Barbara Marciniak’s, Earth, Pleiadian Keys to the Living Library. Here is it’s summary from Amazon.

Embraced worldwide as key spiritual teachers of our times, the Pleiadians are back, with another bold and controversial look at our highest purpose on Earth. Earth: Pleiadian Keys to the Living Library is their handbook to inspired living, calling on us to restore and return value to the human being, and to recognize the Goddess energies and the power of blood as connections to our DNA and our heritage.

Using wit, wisdom, and deep compassion, they entice us to explore the corridors of time through the concept of the Game Masters; to awaken the crucial codes for multidimensional perspective; and to redream the Living Library of Earth. Their teachings are significantly arranged in twelve chapters to trigger a deeper understanding of our ancestral lineage. Earth probes the memories hidden deep within us to reveal our crucial roles in the transformational process unfolding in our times.

I read all of her books many, many years ago, around the times they were written, or shortly after. My good friend who I call Queen Suzi, gave me Marciniak’s first book, The Bringer’s of the Dawn. Funny how the last post I talked about a friend giving me a life altering book, and yet again a trans-formative book. Reading Earth, again makes me realize how that I retained all the knowledge, concepts and beliefs therein, it obviously made an impression. To tell you the truth I do not recall reading it a first time, but reading it, is as if I wrote it myself.

I want to share some excerpts because they are just that good.

Chapter 6

Landing of the Light Body

Pg. 129~ Fear is the killer. We remind you that your power ends where your fear begins. If you fear something it is as if you put a sign up over your head and say, “Welcome I am waiting for you.”

Pg. 133~ We remind you that you create your own reality and that the collective anger you feel has to do with the discrediting of your imagination. . . Imagination is the key to brilliance, to unifying conceptualizations, and to bringing ideas into manifestation. (Mind you I read this since my last post. So much synchronicity.)

Pg. 135~ The solar plexus area is where you hold power in your body and where you extend your power out to the world. It is also where you perceive the world. This is the feeling center.

Pg. 136~ We want you to accept the idea that you are very significant. There is great value in who you are, in what you intend, and in what you allow yourself to experience. We would like you to feel upliftment and sense of personal value for your ability to weave multiple realities of consciousness together and leap into territory that many would not support. . . Be aware of receiving simultaneous information from other civilizations.

Pg. 137~ The more you share what you know, the more you are filled.

Pg. 138~ We cannot emphasize to you enough that you must stop listening to society and to official versions of reality. This involves choice, not disrespect. . . Allow your intuitive self to be the standard bearer of your experience-an experience that no one else is going to validate, and an experience that springs from the assignment that you are knowing, and not necessarily remembering you are on.

Metaphysical Experiments

il_570xN.329440860

There is No Box

Throughout my life as I come across an idea, or concept with an open, yet skeptic mind, I conduct experiments. In the late 70’s I met a very good friend of mine while we were studying theater together at Santa Ana Community College, One of our professors had played a munchkin in The Wizard of Oz, what a claim to fame!  My good friend Ed, and I spent a lot of time together, in the early 80’s, Ed gave me a book by Florence Scovel Shinn, The Game of Life and How to Play It (1925), or Your Word is Your Wand (1928) nonetheless, I read all of her books. Shinn wrote work is in the Christian metaphysical realm, which worked for me at the time. I implemented positive thinking, and affirmations into my life as one of my first Metaphysical Experiments, and it worked. I cannot recall specific stories, other than I needed a job, a car, or a place to live, one of those major survival issues, or a combination thereof. lol Life is like that. So I would get what I wanted and then I would drop the experiment. Life would become complicated, again I would repeat the experiment, and again it would work. I would say I did that three or four times. As I continued to study Metaphysics, healing, Shamanism, Hinduism, Kabbalah, Buddhism . . .  as I acquired more information, I realized that process was like slapping a band aid on consciousness and creation. A fuller understanding came much later with the comprehension of gratitude, and learning to use emotions in Law of Attraction, from Abraham, and new ways of being from Matt Kahn. I am always incorporating new methods which help to fill in gaps of understanding.

Some of the most important lessons were those early ones. “Anything imagined is real,” that and learning to use, and trust the imagination were monumental tools to gain. It is very sad that we as humans have been so deceived, as children we were taught the difference from make-believe, and reality, “That is just imagination. That is not real,” we were told. This is dis-empowering, and where humans are disconnected from their creative power. Most humans still believe that there is such a distinction between reality, and the imagination. It begins by accepting full responsibility that you are a creator.

Not an intentional experiment at all was the incident in October, when I joked about time traveling to break Thoreau’s legs, as opposed to having to read the long, long essay, “Walking,” and coincidentally injuring my knee the following day, which impaired my ability to walk. That although a super painful lesson, it was a very valuable one. If I can cause myself harm by cursing someone from the past, the polar opposite can be true as well.

This message transmitted by Tom Kenyon is a good one to read at this time. I just reread it while looking for something else. Other than the linear nature of numbered dimensions, I agree.

The Fifth Perspective: Transcending Space and Time

A Hathor Planetary Message through Tom Kenyon

Which I blogged here, but read it there as I only added an excerpt, and a link.

 My latest Metaphysical Experiment is splitting my conscious awareness into current existence, and an alternate existence, the nutty Keylontic Science cult called it bi-location. I try and not through out the baby with the bathwater. Similar to the experience in a guided meditation, you are on the inner imaginative journey being guided, and you are in the room feeling the air on your skin, breathing, wiggling your toes.  Or a past life regression, it involves focusing awareness in both realms. When I am consumed with a novel, a great story, and characters, and you put the book down to go to the store, work etc. part of my awareness remains in that world awaiting my return. The process is similar.

This is an exciting time in conscious awareness. We have all heard the word “ascension,” which a cottage industry has sprung from, but with the advent of Quantum Thought inspired by the theories of the theoretical science of Quantum Physics, I am inspired to expand, and reprogram my matrix to exist beyond limitation. There is no box.

Peacock’s, Pomp & Circumstance

The-bestselling-full-mosaic-tiles-font-b-White-b-font-font-b-Peacock-b-font-green

Most of my blog buddies are friends on Facebook, so y’all are up to date. Graduation was fun, It felt like an accomplishment although it was just community college. Boy I love, love that school, and had such erudite professors, who are great teachers. As education is my major, I always got a twofer; I was learning say Literature, and watching their teaching style. All of the professors were there to congratulate us, and that was a cherished moment. Oh, and I got to walk to Pomp and Circumstance! (You can see it on my Facebook page.) Today I met with my ASU, Mary Lou Fulton Teaching College adviser, Chris, super nice guy. We took the light rail to the Tempe campus, so it was also an adventure. Parking is super expensive there, and I would get some exercise if I chose that method of transit. I am also considering taking my bike, if my knee is down with that. So more delays, I have to get my finger print card, I had no idea but I start teaching in a classroom my first semester, one day a week. Wow, jumping right on into this. Well that is pretty much it, things are flowing it a it better than that last month, my computer is in the shop yet again.

A special thank you to all my friends, and family for all the beautiful roses, card, parties, best wishes. . . it was really, really cool! I am blessed!

I am inspired by peacocks lately, and I know I have covered its symbolism before, as well, as Julianne, at Through the Peacock’s Eyes, and others, but I will include a bit here anyways.

Namaste

Interstellar Burst

May 9 – 15, 2016

You should feel a distinct change in the atmosphere this week, one that offers a cathartic liberation from feeling the doldrums, and melancholy. For all the ups and downs, these past few months have been very wisening which has greatly expanded your capacity to handle contradiction and paradox . . .

. . . Since January 7th, Jupiter has been in retrograde and has intermittently been squaring Saturn in Sagittarius. This Jupiter retrograde period has offered a magnifying glass with which to study the contents of your character. Agonizing though it may have been, in order to taste the fruits of wisdom, you must acknowledge your most petty flaws and transmute them into strengths of character. Because these planetary motions have anchored much of your energy into this intense self-analysis, your sense of good luck and optimism in the external world may have felt hindered.

But this week will bring a great resuscitation of your spirits! The Moon will be waxing, which naturally builds up the momentum needed to realize more of your ambitions and attract more support for your work. But the Moon’s energy is only a small part of the benevolence afforded to you this week.
