Teaching Peace Within To Incease World Peace With Alexandra Steinicke Intuitive

Letting Go of Perfection

When someone puts you on a pedestal, the moment you reveal yourself as human, or not wanting to or capable of meeting their expectations, they may react with reducing your value in their eyes. The higher they hold you as a powerful being, the farther they may drop their opinion of you. For every action there is an equal reaction. It is often said that those you love you will eventually hate. It is tragic but this happens many of our relationships. It is a wonderful opportunity to accept your fellow humans as they are not as you want them to be.

We are being reminded that holding someone high above you is giving away your God given power to an objectified source.  We must be mindful of seeing our fellow humans as perfect or imperfect. It is almost certain that if we see another as perfect, they will with some eventuality reveal themselves as imperfect.  None of us reach that lofty goal of perfection in life. It is simply impossible. We are all in this wonderful boat together, surfing the Sea of Existence in a perpetual state of trial and effort, successes and failures, all in one great experiment called loving. They way we judge ultimately out pictures in what we find ourselves saying about other people. We can it all around by asking ourselves: Is it true? Does it need to be said? How does it make you feel to believe that about someone else? Can you let it go? How does it feel to keep that belief?  (For more: Read Loving What Is by Bryron Katie)

When we look into each other’s eyes, we can see the grace that exists in the fabric of everything. Especially true when we are open to others through the view of lover. We are mirrors for one another.  A loving heart will see another loving heart. A mistrusting heart will see mistrust in others, ect. In the shimmering beauty we give each other reason to reveal our true selves. The mirror will not always reflect what we want to see about ourselves. It will always reflect the truth of our inner talk. Often it is easier to see in another person. Then we start thinking that so and so is our problem. The ripple always truly exists in our own judgment as it relates to the story we are telling ourselves.

It helps to have a few tools in your back pocket for self acceptance. I like The Twelve Pathways to Higher Consciousness by Ken Keyes Jr.  This is pathway #6: I accept myself completely here and now and consciously experience everything I feel, think, say, and do (including my emotion backed addictions) as a necessary part of my growth into higher consciousness.

The author Neal Donald Walsh has given us a lovely children’s book called The Little Soul and the Sun. This book furthers this discussion in a most delightful way. It reminds us of the roles we play with each other by playing out our soul contracts with each other. We are often asking to others “Reveal myself to me”.  We do this in many different forms.  Often the words come out “I love you” or “I hate you”. Everything that seems to happen to us is an out picturing of our own play. When people are not playing according to the role you have written for them, perhaps they know not of the script. People who love harmony will want to please you, but we simply cannot do that if our own inner harmony is triggered by other core needs. We contract others to play these roles of savior, villain, lover, ect….

Think back on the last time someone was upset with you. Were they really upset with you? Were their expectations being met? How were they asking please…? In times when haven’t heard clearly the request of another, and instead heard what they said as shaming or blaming, we can go back and ask ourselves some questions. Until we can honestly hear the beauty within the request, we cannot respond in a way in which everyone’s needs are beautifully met. Meditation is the remedy to provide a clear space to hear things differently and connect in a heart space within. From this calm and loving attunement opens a world of self love and forgiveness.  For more read: Non Violent Communication by Marshall Rosenburg PH.d.

Anything offered or received with an open heart will be a blessing for the giver or receiver. For every drop of Love we give each other, there will also be droplets of things less sweet. In every moment of connection we remember the truth, but for the moments of disconnection, recognizing the imperfection within all of us, it is helpful to remember Ho’ oponopono forgiveness

May you have harmony in all your relations!

Like Energy Attracts Like Energy

Above all is not to fear, not to fear at all. These are words from one of my favorite songs from the Dances of Universal Peace. On the Central Coast there is a wonderful group that practices processes from the Dances Of Universal Peace through monthly dances and regular Peace Choir singing meditations. We explore silence.  This is just one of the ways I remove fear from my daily reality.

Fear is part of the process for all of us and controls every thought for some leading to ever-growing states of anxiety. We humans, and in particular American Humans, have an innate ability to see what is missing rather than what is here.  We sometimes see what could exist rather than being one with existence. In fact many do not believe it possible to live in the absence of fear or have never had the experience of Universal Peace. We can’t create anything but lack from lack. Like energy is attracted to itself. Change your focus and change your reality.

Fear is the absence of inner peace. It is our internal signal that we are no longer grounded in the here and now.  Some part of us has told ourselves we are not enough, or we haven’t enough, leaving behind the question: What is enough? Is enough having the right job? Is enough having the right house? Is enough having the right mate? How much is enough money in your bank account?

There are only two states of consciousness to choose from. We can live from the bliss that exists in everything or the fear that exists in the Human race. Fear has one purpose. It extends life in times when we need to act quickly to sustain our safety or well being. If so simple, why has it gotten out of control in our minds and hearts? Why do so many people live with anxiety? How do we stop the constant loop of fearful thoughts?

We are taught that money makes the world go round. This is a false material belief. A grand belief in lack is born and multiplied through media sources. We are not lacking. We live in the richest nation in the World. Most everyone I know lives in California which is one of the richest states in the United States.  A good percentage of the people I know live on the Central Coast in the happiest place in the Nation according to Oprah (who lives in neighboring Santa Barbara County):

I have witnessed people who own nothing and couch surf to people who have millions of dollars and live in big houses on the hill. Fear is fear. It knows nothing of your everyday lifestyle or your everyday bank balance. In one day,  a person I work with will be freaking out over needing $35 to cover a check,  and as I move on,  the next person may be $3500 over budget and wondering where they are going to come up with the next mortgage payment. It is exactly the same energy just different numbers or different lifestyles. Everything created from fear will manifest with fear. Everything created from love will manifest with love. In every circumstance, one has the choice.

It has been interesting traveling through the U.S. and seeing the common threads running through the people, Folks are choosing fear and scarcity.  It is all too easy to become one of the sleeping humans, not aware that they are choosing the scarcity. They choose it by repeating the thought over and over not enough. By repeating that thought we choose it,  and the Universe gets behinds it and delivers. We want to focus on being awake and ready at all times.

We all have the power to choose a different thought, and one of the ways we change our thinking is by meditating. Please feel free to download a free meditation http://www.starthealingnow.com/?p=39. Another way is to daily affirm a new reality:

Today I take stock of what I have. I see prosperity in everything.

Much Love,

Vanishing

Vanishing

This morning at the gym while on the Elliptical Trainer, I closed my eyes to meditate a bit. I often do this to distract myself from the things I that I react to with annoying thoughts like people watching me. I find when I meditate while I am working out my exertion climbs effortlessly and my heart rate stays steady. The machine I was using today was facing a wall of mirrors. Before I closed my eyes I remember noticing my head bobbing up and down. This particular meditation was really wonderful. I had loads of  cosmic gold vibrations through me. I could see the grid that connects us all and pass pure love through it. It felt amazing, soft, peaceful, and energizing. When I opened my eyes all appearance of me had vanished. Everything else in the Gym was still there, but there was absolutely no appearance of me in the mirror.  There was no head bobbing up and down. In fact no me at all. The machine was still moving but there appeared to be no one on it.  I pinched myself. I opened and shut my eyes. Nothing changed it. All appearance of me was gone.

After a few minutes I reappeared. All the while this was occurring, I felt nothing but pure love and my energy was nothing but a river of golden light. There was no me but I could see the connection that binds everything into our reality. When we as human beings can see this, we truly understand there it nothing for any of us to do except be love.

This one is for Mark Cicone and Christine Story who have asked me to start righting down these experiences for the benefit of all who believe.
