EMBRACING the BULLY WITHIN

March 2018 AWAKENING FROM THE WOUNDED CHILD EMBRACING the BULLY WITHIN We usually think of a bully as someone outside of ourselves.  What about the one on the inside? We all live with a bully to a greater or lesser degree. The bully is that feeling that shows up when you begin to doubt yourself. Or, when you have a negative reaction to someone or something.  It is the inner critic who is ready to tell you what you should and shouldn’t do or feel.  It likes to remind you of your failures, create doubts and self-judgments. The bully can also be waiting to take itself out on others. Since the bully considers itself to be right, it has to find something wrong in others. The Bully Takes Its Toll The bully is always lurking in the shadows of our mind, not willing to leave until it…

THE AWAKENING

April 2018 AWAKENING FROM THE WOUNDED CHILD THE AWAKENING I just came across the following gems on the subject of “Awakening”.  I feel compelled to share them with you dear readers.  The “Awakening” being referred to by the unknown author happens in that ah ha! moment when it dawns on us that nothing outside of our self has to change in order to be happy and at peace.  In that split second, our socially conditioned self is seen through, and the light of True Self, the Divine Spark that we are, shines brilliantly. Here are the words I want to share … The Awakening (Author unknown) A time comes in your life when you finally get…when, in the midst of all your fears and insanity, you stop dead in your tracks and somewhere the voice inside your head cries out… Enough! Enough fighting and crying and blaming…

VALENTINE TREASURES

February 2018 A poem by Joanna Fuchs.   It expresses how my heart feels about you. AWAKENING FROM THE WOUNDED CHILD VALENTINE TREASURES Valentine treasures are people who have often crossed your mind, family, friends and others, too, who in your life have shined the warmth of love or a spark of light that makes you remember them; no matter how long since you've actually met, each one is a luminous gem, who gleams and glows in your memory, bringing special pleasures, and that's why this Valentine comes to you: You're one of those sparkling treasures! A special Love on Valentine’s Day.

MANY FACES. ONE SPIRIT

January 2018 Awaken From The Wounded Child MANY FACES. ONE SPIRIT Greetings from the Spirit within me. We have just passed through a year of seemingly constant turmoil.  And so, we may find ourselves entering the New Year with a hangover from last year’s world news and environmental disasters.  In the words of Winston Churchill, “History is one damned thing after another.” Ultimately, we can never find happiness if it is invested in the idea that the world around us has to change. If we look deeply into the root cause of conflict we’ll see that throughout the ages, we humans have been socially conditioned to focus on our differences.  Focusing on differences creates distance between individuals, communities and nations, causing conflict and stress. Stress has become the norm for many of us.  Yet, there is a lingering longing to live in a state of peace.   But…

BEFRIENDING FEAR

AWAKENING FROM THE WOUNDED CHILD BEFRIENDING FEAR In our human world, fear is accepted as a natural way of life. The energy of fear leads to physical, mental and emotional bondage and spiritual poverty. In so doing, fear veils the light of our True Self.  It constricts us. Born into the world as True Self – the Divine Spark -- we are the radiant light of pure consciousness … the love that accepts all and is tarnished by nothing.  As Divine Sparks we are without fear, being one with all experience. Then we were conditioned into separation as “me” and “you.”  The hallmarks of separation are distrust and fear. We learned fear through traumatic experiences.  Unresolved fearful memories veiled the Divine Spark, the True Self and gave birth to a false sense of self. We began to live life through the veil of fear. We were not…

LOVE IS ALWAYS HERE

LOVE IS ALWAYS HERE

    AWAKENING FROM THE WOUNDED CHILD  Magazine Circle Member & Visionary Leader October 2017  Article  LOVE IS ALWAYS HERE We are all coming face to face with what many believe to be a time never before experienced by humanity. Changes are happening in ways of planetary destruction, political upheaval and epic bloodshed. In view of these events that may be rocking the foundation of our safety, it can be difficult to accept that Love is always here. Human Love In the human world love is unreliable.  We celebrate Valentine’s Day. Then the wine and roses fade away.  Human love can believe itself into loving someone or something in order to fulfill a subconscious – or even conscious -- need.  And, on a moment-to-moment basis, we can either express love or close the door to love depending upon a passing mood. We began being programmed in the…

LOVE IS THE HEART OF ALL EXPERIENCE

  AWAKENING FROM THE WOUNDED CHILD  Magazine Circle Member & Visionary Leader September 2017  Article  Love Is The Heart Of All Experience Can love be present even in the midst of personal rage and social violence? Or, is love only present when things are going well?  Can we find true love, the love that doesn’t come and go with circumstances? The Divine Heart As I look back over the fluctuations of my life, from childhood to the very moment that I am writing this article, I notice that something has always remained constant … an underlying, aware presence that has never been affected by the tides of change.  Now, reflect on your life.  See what’s always been present in all situations. Aware presence sees all fluctuations, yet remains unchanged. It is the alive presence within which all thoughts, feelings, sensations and perceptions are watched.  Like the space…

Inner Peace Is Always Present

AWAKENING FROM THE WOUNDED CHILD   Magazine Circle Member & Visionary Leader August 2017  Article INNER PEACE IS ALWAYS PRESENT If inner peace is always present why do we not feel peaceful all the time?  The short answer is because our busy mind is veiling the peace that is our true nature.  The mind is a circular activity that consciously and unconsciously lives in the past and worries about the future. The mind is in a constant state of flux, striving and never arriving: it’s always searching for a moment in time that is better than the present moment.  The mind is like a hamster on a wheel … lots or motion, yet going nowhere.  The difference is the hamster enjoys the ride. We suffer. The futile search for inner peace The greatest addiction is the addiction to thinking.  For the constantly striving mind – except for fleeting…

TURNING CHILDHOOD TRAUMAS INTO BLESSINGS

AWAKENING FROM THE WOUNDED CHILD  Magazine Circle Member & Visionary Leader July 2017  Article Turning Childhood Traumas Into Blessings We are all alchemists.  Just like Rumpelstiltskin who had the power to turn straw into gold, we have the ability to turn our childhood traumas into blessings. For children, there is no escape from traumas. A child innocently picks up a piece of candy in the supermarket. His father reacts, jerks him by the arm, takes away the candy and then raises his voice in a harsh whisper only to be overheard by nearby shoppers. That public shaming becomes a trauma that can veil a child’s heart for a lifetime. The child’s innocence is replaced by guilt and self-judgment. How My Own Shame Ran My Life I remember when I was 2 years old and my mother gave me a glass of malted milk. She threatened to punish…

HOW THE MIND BLOCKS OUR DIVINE HEART

HOW THE MIND BLOCKS OUR DIVINE HEART

AWAKENING FROM THE WOUNDED CHILD  Magazine Circle Member & Visionary Leader June 2017  Article How The Mind Blocks Our Divine Heart Our mind is very creative in the many ways it can block our Divine Heart.  We are all familiar with addictive thinking, much of which consists of anxiety-creating thoughts.  So much mental noise leaves very little space for the Divine Heart to shine through. Our Divine Heart is our True Nature. Our True Nature is not limited by our thoughts; rather, it becomes shrouded with mind-made beliefs. We did not deliberately choose to step away from our True Nature.  Hurtful feelings and abuse form our persona: the belief system that defines who we are and how we present ourselves.  This is the play of human conditioning. Our Divine Heart gradually becomes the human heart, the chauffeur that drives us our lives.  Tom’s Divine Heart Becomes Veiled…
