The Key to a Peaceful, Prosperous Life? Banish lower energies!

I have done everything in my power to keep politics out of my blog.  However, this country is coming to the point where the politics at play can and will harm any chances we have of moving forward and moving into the light as a people, as a species and as a planet. The danger?   Lower energies.

Lower energies: What are they? Fear, lack, hate, bitterness, selfishness, resentment, bigotry, violence, anger, and much much more.

In a Facebook discussion on the timeline of one of my friends, I began to examine what is going on in this country on a more metaphysical level.  I’ve been personally, in my meditations, getting rid of lower energies as much and as consistently as possible. About 14 months ago, I began to physically do the same, distancing myself from anyone who personifies lower energies, as well as using Facebook tools to block and unfriend those types.

You know, once this ‘culling’ began in my life, where I started getting rid of these people over a year ago, I have realized when analyzing, that they were never contributing anything to my life whatsoever anyway. I’ve not missed a single one of them.

Remember, you will attract in your life what you put forward. If you put forward compassion and love, you’ll attract the same. Those who are unable or unwilling to live in that manner and who put forward opposite, lower energies will attract the same to themselves. It is your choice of course, but when you cut those types out of your life, you are now able to move forward yourself in quantum leaps. Your power to do good will intensify and isn’t that what we’re all here for?

They were ‘hangers-on’ who were trying to enjoy the good positive energy of those like us, without actually contributing any of their own. Now, whether that is because they HAVE no good energy of their own or because they chose not to, is of no consequence. They are leaches. They are small, dark beings living in their own dark world of their own making, living in hate and resentment and refusing to move forward. They always have the choice to move forward but it is their choice. You will not teach them if they do not want to learn.

It is just recently that it has come to me that the entire Trump movement is a massive, ugly metaphor the worst of the worst on this planet. They embrace fear, selfishness, hate, anger, violence, ignorance, bitterness and all the while, do nothing to help others – not other humans, not society, not nature and not other beings.

Step back, my friends.  Look at your life, your country and your planet in the larger view. When you do that keeping in mind that the lower energies are harming us all, and they have become increasingly prevalent in the form of a political movement BASED ON lower energies, I hope you will see how dangerous this situation is.

Please everyone, move away from lower energies. Embrace truth.  Do the work. Ban the lower energies and those who exhibit those energies from your life.

Move into light.  Move into compassion.  Move into love.  Move into truth. Your health will improve.  Your life will improve.  Your point of view will improve.  And the sooner you eliminate the toxic energies and people in your life, the sooner you and those around you will move forward.

The past can be healing

I make every effort to live in the now.  It is generally not helpful to dwell in the past or to live for the future.  However, there are times that for me, visiting the past is very healing and revealing.

My mother and father passed away in 2012 and 2013.  While I loved them dearly, there are family friends who I have always felt incredibly close to, who I have always considered my ‘second parents’.  They have lived on the beach in Southwest Florida since 1959.  My Mom and Dad Bayfront 47Sepiaabsolute best memories of my Dad are there on that beach.  Perhaps it’s because this was before he became so judgmental.  Or perhaps it’s because I was so young that I never saw that side of him at that time.  However, in thinking back, that is when he seemed the most light-hearted and carefree.  My Mom was always perfect in my eyes so I can’t think of her in any situation where she wasn’t wonderful.

My Mom, Dad and my sisters and myself would journey to the home of my parents then-best friends a few times a year.  I find that at age 60, I am attached to that place, and to those memories more than anything else in my childhood.  Perhaps it’s because my parents are gone.  And perhaps it’s because half of my ‘second parents’ has recently died. I’m feeling more and more that it is the place that I’m now tied to.  As a child, I could never hold back the tears when it was time to leave, and as my husband has seen, I’ve not changed even now.  Our friend often comments on how every single time as a very small child, I was in the back seat, with tears in my eyes as we drove away.

I was born in Miami and then spent some years growing up in Alabama but I have never felt an attachment to any place I lived in Alabama.  I couldn’t wait to leave Alabama and did so Mom and Dad 7 Mile Bridge 47the moment I was able to. I find it interesting that I feel no ties to the home where I grew up yet feel tied to this one spot on our planet.  It’s where I feel the most grounded.  Am I the only one who feels this type of connection?

I’ve lived many places since then, and the last 20+ years have been here in South Florida.  I feel South Florida is where I am meant to be and have no plans to leave.

After I grew up and was on my own, I continued to spend a great deal of time on that beach with those wonderful people.  My husband knows and loves them as I do. We continue to go there at least once a month now, because we’ve seen that those we love who are of that age group are starting to leave us and we don’t want to miss a moment with them if we can help it.

I looked through some old pictures, hoping to find some pics of my dad surf fishing there, or relaxing or doing little projects with our friends.  But all I found were some from a trip he and my Mom made from Miami to Key West in 1947 right before they were married, which are embedded here.  One is at Bayfront Park in Key West and the other is on one of the many bridges between Miami and Key West.

Yes, this is an incredibly sentimental post today, but somehow, it just seems to feel right to share this.  My husband has always said since we were first together, that I’m his ‘Real Emotional Girl’ (a Randy Newman song).  I do indeed live from the heart and when one does that, it can leave one open to a lot of pain.  It’s just important to learn from it all. It seems today is one of those days that I wear the ‘Real Emotional Girl’ description proudly.
