Turning the Tables

Published February 26, 2014 by myagleny

Everything we have around us in our homes and workplaces reminds us of something in our past.  Everything holds a memory, an energy and a vibration, and when we see it, whether we are conscious of it or not, it triggers us.  Imagine turning over a page to unexpectedly see a photograph of yourself as a child.  All of a sudden you are back there…  You feel the textures, hear the sounds and see the place where you were with a part of you that never forgets – anything.  We are tied to the past because every second of it has been the structure of our life experience, and whatever we do, we cannot be free of it.  But we can limit it’s hold over us.

Unless we are constantly changing the entire contents of our homes, they are rammed full of the past.  As I sit here I know the table before me was a gift from a friend 30 years ago, given when I found myself alone with no money to buy furniture.  As I think of it, my mind sets off on a journey of everything else that was happening back then, and I feel a twinge of guilt and anxiety.  This isn’t NOW in any sense!  This is something that happened decades ago, but still my body is triggered by the sight of this table and the story it tells. To anyone else, it is just a table…

Right now this has been a conscious thought that I can square with, but the weird thing is, this table will sub-consciously trigger me every time I see it.  A tiny tremor of guilt and anxiety will travel through my body as I dust it off or sit beside it.  These are not good feelings to reinforce.  They remind me that I am not good enough, that I cannot support myself well enough, and that I am stuck.

I have now brought consciousness to this, and that changes it straight away.  I should now be so conscious of my process, that before the table and it’s memories can trigger me, I will be aware.  This table can no longer have so much power over me…

The more conscious and present we can be, the easier our lives become.  When we are aware in the moment, we notice our reactions and can let them go, constantly releasing the past.  We can move beyond the reactive human and into conscious awareness.  This is evolution in action.

How shall I be tomorrow?

If I want to tell you how I feel, I only have my words to explain…  And words can be too easily misunderstood.  I cannot show you how I am with tears and laughter, because we are not together – you cannot see me, I am not here.  I can only try to share by way of strange little marks upon a page, that is not even a page.  Marks that you interpret as you do in the way you do, but maybe not as I intended when I made them.

How shall I be, in this moment of all time?

Gone are the feelings of my yesterday, gone forever into nothingness. They were never real, never true.  But nonetheless, here they are again. It is only my relentless, recurring thoughts that bring these feelings back for me to feel again today – but they cannot be the same as yesterday because time has changed them.  The change is subtle, but it is there. They are not the same because now is not then.

I think about this and that, again and again.  I think about how it has been and how it should have been, and every time I think it I reinforce the memory, so that when I come to think of it again tomorrow I will not forget.  I think it is the same, but it is not the same.

How stupid that is!  Why am I continuing to try to think the same thoughts day after day, when the Universe is so full and vibrant and diverse?  Why do I work so hard to keep myself as close to yesterday as I can?  I cannot move into something new, while I anchor myself to a past that doesn’t exist except in the grinding thoughts of my mind. What am I afraid of?

Suppose tomorrow I refuse to think about my problems, my family’s problems and the problems of the world?  What on Earth would my mind do with itself!  It would go crazy without a worry!  It isn’t used to thinking differently – it only knows bad news and endless lists of things to be done. I don’t think it can do it – it only knows one way.

Suppose I watch it, like watching a little child at play.  Every so often I can remind it, gently help it out of the ruts it falls into with such ease, and murmur encouragement. ‘That’s an original thought!  Well done!’  I will ask it questions and make it think.  I will make it notice it’s feelings and celebrate the changes as they come.  Today is not yesterday all over again… unless I make it so.

I will keep it busy with writing words, on a page that isn’t even a page…

#Light and #Water and #Conscious #Creation

It is pure magic to see what happens when two of the things we simply cannot live without, join forces. #Light and #Water together create the colours and crystal energy of Life itself, and I for one can watch cheerful streams tumbling over rocks bathed in sunlight, all day long…  How lucky we are to see such things!  To have the technology to freeze frame a moment in time which has never before been seen; which has never before come together in such a way – and never will again…  But here it is, in all its vibrancy.  Perfect and mind blowing.  What can you see in the shapes and forms? Like gazing into a crystal ball, all life is there for the seeing, if we just open our minds to the possibility of knowing what we already know.

Dr #Masaru #Emoto has scientifically proven that consciousness affects the molecular structure of water.  What you are thinking and intending changes the energy and the shape of the crystals that form at freezing point.  His research is widely available to explore, and for me, seeing what happens when positive thoughts are directed to water, and alternatively what happens with negative thoughts, has been the ‘Aha!’ moment that I, and so many others, have been seeking in this world today.

What are we?  For a start we are composed of at least 60% water – babies far more than that.  Taking Dr Emoto’s research into account, imagine how the water in our bodies is changed by our thinking…  Toxic thoughts make us toxic beings – negative, destructive and of little use to the wellbeing of ourselves and the Earth.  Positive thoughts, directed with good intent and energy, changes everything for the better.  Never under-estimate the power of blessing your food and water – and indeed yourself and others.  Just a second or two imagining how truly wonderful things are, enhances the molecular structure of all.  Everything becomes brighter, more vibrant and energetic.  Everything becomes… more than what it once was.

Water is FULL of Life energy.  It is our emotions.  Our language is full of references to water…  It is our way of telling it how it is.  Floods of tears, drowning in sorrow, awash with confusion.  We are floating and full to the brim as the stories of our lives come gushing out.

Our waking consciousness can change our environment.  With awareness of our thoughts, our circumstances will change too.  Light and Water can show us our way – all we have to do is stay awake long enough to see the transformation materialise.
