CHARACTERISTIC 05: WITH HEART AND SOUL (08 of 12)
The Power of the Universe is in You and it’s now time to make use of it !
Once a month a different characteristic will be discussed.
Up until now 8 characteristics have been discussed.
In House number 5 we find WITH HEART AND SOUL
This month we’re discussing WITH HEART AND SOUL.
We’re choosing the word Passion. Your Passion.
A dream that has always been with you, something you want to achieve in your daily life. Something that is durable and gives you pleasure because you feel that you’re doing something that’s good for yourself and your surroundings.
You have no worry as to how you’ ll achieve it. Inspiration takes you step by step further and lets you experience what you’ve achieved, which then gives you new insights.
Although you very well know where the essence of your passion lies, the road that you’ll take to make it come true won’t be dull! There will be surprises on the way. You feel the drive to take whatever steps that are necessary, believing in a good outcome. You work with your heart, not your head.
Your creativity is unique, functional and durable, and although your new ideas are not in common use, they produce positive changes and bring people together. You see confirmation in the fact that they are new and bring harmony, balance and joy.
In House number 6 we find ACTING RESPONSIBLY.
What does that mean?
This word contains many examples!
I’ll choose 3 of them.
The first one that comes in my mind is that I’m responsible for the choices I make in my life. I can’t give that responsibility to others. We often have the inclination to blame others when things don’t go well in our lives, but at the end of the day we were the ones who chose to associate with these people. We can learn a lot from this. There are people who with good intentions give you advice that you don’t feel good about. Without having an argument you can choose to discuss this with them and still stay friends. At other times there could be people who consciously or unconsciously try to frustrate you. You can then choose to distance yourself from them, or if it’s your boss, wisely accept the situation without feeling hurt, or decide to look for another job. It’s always a question of what you choose to do. You can communicate in a direct manner, or be patient and wait and see how a situation develops. The higher our consciousness, the better our choices are.
Another form of RESPONSIBLE BEHAVIOUR is “what’s your responsibility to the World in which you live?”
If you have talents that you never use you’re devaluing yourself and the World. Everyone has something special and it’s our duty to show it to others. There is often a lack of selfconfidence, thinking, “nobody will like what I do”, or “I have no talents”. How you’ve been brought up is important. If you’ve never been stimulated to be freely creative without the obligation to come up with a result, you’ll not have the confidence to try things out. But it’s still your responsibility to do so! You came to earth for a reason!
The last example is our RESPONSIBILITY for the WORDS we produce.
Are we aware of the influence our words have on other people? And also on ourselves? A friendly word, an angry word, a loving word, or an emotionally charged word? Every word has its own vibration, and it influences not only the person with whom you talk to, but also yourself in a positive or negative manner. In this quick, quick, quick time we now live in it’s not always possible to choose the right words when we’re communicating with others. We’re often governed by emotions.
Maybe it’s now time to take the ‘time’ for our communication talents!
CHARACTERISTIC 01 : BEING ALERT (06 of 12)
What does Being Alert mean in your daily life?
It doesn’t mean that you constantly keep your eyes on everything!
It doesn’t create tension. It doesn’t make you stressed or fearful. You can
be alert and calm at the same time! Going through many experiences also
makes you alerter. It makes you think “I’m not going to let this happen anymore”, or “I’m going to do it differently next time”.
You can also choose to be alerter because you want to consciously become aware of what you’re doing, without being distracted. The more you focus on what you’re doing, the more ‘normal’ it becomes.
It has also to do with your feelings and intuition. Why don’t you enter a
certain street, or decide to take a rest, or to do exactly the opposite and fitness
more often, eat healthier etc. Do you listen to your body, do you take notice
of your health? Does your body give you a sign? How well do you know yourself, and if you do, are you alert?
You also have ‘being alert to your surroundings’ .
You’re conscious of what’s happening with the World and all of its fellow inmates.
Seeing the changes on Earth and responding in a positive way. Above all not
concentrating on all that’s negative, but seeing that there is also something beautiful starting to arise amongst people.
Be alert of gloom and depressions. Get a hold of yourself, speak out positive
affirmations and believe that you’ll feel better.
In this new energy you’ll become conscious of the fact that you’re the boss
over your moods and health. All you have to do is work on it in a positive
way. Get out of your box!
Always be yourself, and don’t , through a feeling of inferiority have the idea
that you have to think the same as everyone else and do what they do.
In fact ‘Being Alert’ has everything to do with consciousness and self knowledge.
How higher your consciousness, how higher your sensitivity, how higher your awareness.
Being aware means that you have a feeling of peace and quiet in you that doesn’t let itself be distracted by what’s happening around you. You don’t doubt. In fact you are Always sure of yourself.
You’re connected with the Universal energy. You’re open and accessible. Universal energy has no distractions.
You’re in balance, and in this state of mind you’re aware of everything around you, while at the same time only reacting to what matters to you. You have a kind of filter in your energy field that only lets through that which is important.
In fact, this kind of awareness brings you synchronicity. It means that in your daily life, all kinds of situations end up in a positive way, even when at first it looked as if they wouldn’t. With your creativity everything turns out fine.
You have the awareness of consciousness.
We also use meditation to bring us into a state of calm awareness. This doesn’t mean 30 minutes a day and the rest in stress. That’s for starters! The real mediation is keeping this awareness all day long. It doesn’t mean that you walk around sleepy and fuzzy. In fact you’re in the highest form of awareness . It’s become a part of you. There’s no ballast in you or around you.
Awareness always comes from your inner self. It’s not something that happens through just thinking. If you have a sharp, sensitive intuition, your brain will then help you further to realise your goal. The other way round doesn’t work, not perfectly.
CHARACTERISTIC 07 : CURIOUS TO KNOW WHAT YOU DON’T KNOW, CURIOSITY (05 of 12)
Why is curiousity more important than passion? If you ask Young people “what is your passion”, how many will be able to give you an answer? Maybe a few. Most of them won’t be able to tell you, and inventing something from their brain has no point. No….. passion comes after curiousity! Curiousity comes from a free spirit. A passion grows because there’s something that suddenly catches your eye, or interests you and you’d like to know more about it. And when you know more, your curiousity grows and brings you to new discoveries that then bring you into a world you never could have expected. Why’s this? Curiousity has nothing to do with your mind and is always open to new possibilities. When your curiousity remains permanent and goes further and further, you can then say that you have a passion! There are many examples of people who were inspired to do or discover something that didn’t fit in a logical world. People called them crazy, but they had the drive to carry on until their idea blossomed into something tangible. It didn’t matter to them if their idea only gave pleasure to themselves, or to many others also. Curiousity is not a goal, but a way of life.
CHARACTERISTIC 09 : LEARNING TO OBSERVE (04 of 12)
This month I’m writing a story about Observation.
Have you ever observed yourself? I mean observed what you say, or do, and what kind of influence it has on yourself or your surroundings? Lately, the word Observation has been on my mind and I started a conversation with myself. Observation is a complex word. It works in a subtle way and isn’t easy to put into words. In fact, it’s a consciousness, an insight that you suddenly get. You’re not supposed to observe with your mind. It’s a type of energy that flashes from one place to the other, without the person, animal or the object realizing it. Our intelligence gives us the possibility to observe more things at once and reacts just at the right time to take action for the right subject.
I’ve got a good example of this in our home with one of our cats. Cats are, as you know,
v e…..r y sensitive! During the past years we’ve found out that they know exactly when our senses are directed at them. It asks for a creative approach when you want them to work in cooperation with you, – without them knowing it! It requires us to use our 5 senses all at the one time. You could call this Quantum energy. In fact observation is done with an empty head, completely via intuition!
You can sometimes get an ingenious idea while observing! One of our cats won’t let us pick him up or treat him in any way! Well, we are allowed to pet him! So, what do you do if he starts to have diarrhea everyday? Maybe it’s caused by worms, or some kind of bacteria? Crushing a worm tablet into powder and mixing it with his food had no effect. He just looked at it and walked away. In a flash, I suddenly got the idea to fill his drinking bowl with water from our red copper jug. Copper does kill bacteria. He continued to eat the same food he always ate. The only thing that changed was his drinking water. Luckily he drank water regularly. Well, how does this story end? A few days later his stools were perfect! This is what I call a successful exercise in what observation with none attachment can do.
CHARACTERISTIC 08 : FINDING BALANCE IN YOUR EMOTIONS (03 of 12)
EMOTIONS, what do we do with them?
There are countless emotions. Too many to name!
They can be seen in everything you do. Emotions cause actions. They give you a certain feeling. You have emotions by every thought you think, by every word you use and every action you take. The experiences they give you are either favorable or unfavorable. And it is up to you what you choose to do with them!
Here’s an example of someone who crops up feelings.
