My laptop suffered a breakdown last week As a matteroffact it has been suffering several breakdown s due to virus attacks. (I write a lot of spiritual stuff as well as politics & much about upliftment, etc)
I ask: Did my laptop suffer a break down due to my any negative energy I was packing around; energy that might have gotten in the way and somehow caused the shut down of my computer's capability to send email attachments?
Or was it that dark side knows how to create such havoc, and it did so in order to stop me from sending the document?
Interesting question. Perhaps it works both ways... or in conjunction; meaning that dark side comes into play at a moment when I am in a downward spiral and susceptible, then dark side, using my negativity, applies a layer of negativity to that which works with mine and wham, bam, the deed is done.
Dear One, what can you say about this matter
Love & blessings
Hello and thanks for this great question. The answer could take a bit, so grab a cup of coffee! Everything in our day is allowed to be there because we have opened the door for it to enter. This is not the same as saying you broke your lap top or there aren't forces around intent on wreaking havoc; you didn't and there are.
We reside on earth, in 3D, with all the natural and man made systems operating in concert with us. Once, a dear friend of mine was in the mountains and decided to create a rainbow. Rather quickly, one appeared as if at his command. In telling the story he said “Yeah, but it had rained the night before and there was moisture in the air, so it wasn't really me.” But of course there had to be moisture for a rainbow! We use what surrounds us to create our world, rainbows and broken lap tops included.
We are creation magnets, creating consciously and unconsciously, with explicit intent or internal fear or feelings of pleasure. The power we hold here is precise and consistent. If in your work you harbor some sort of conflict (perhaps in your political work) you will attract some version of that to you. It could manifest as a cold or an argument or traffic or a virus attack on your laptop. That said, your laptop had to be “ready” to break, timing is everything, (remember the rainbow?). There is not a perfect answer as you have already surmised... we are participants in all that surrounds us.
It is not a magical sort of thing really and no blame is appropriate, it is the natural response of energy to energy...your laptop runs on energy, you do too and what you emit will effect any machine you are using. There are times in my home when one of us will tell the other of us to “step away from the computer” because their energy is just screwing everything up and nothing will work. Someone else can sit down and it works just fine.
Having said that, there is another thing to consider about the “dark side creating havoc”... there are those who feed on our negative energy and in fact once they sense it, will hang around for more, creating a sort of vicious circle of anxiety/trouble/anger/negativity, which is an “all you can eat buffet” for them. Once in it, it can be difficult to recognize. Consciousness demands vigilance and without blame a ready response to what isn't working.
Once you see what's broken, fix it and move on, you know? It is all energy and malleable. Your last paragraph is a nice summary, except that sometimes a broken laptop is just a broken laptop – no other forces are necessary, we do just fine on our own.
I can't tell you how many appliances have needed repair as I negotiate this energy of mine! It isn't helpful to “pass the buck” once it happens, in my experience. What helps is getting to the root of the emotion and releasing/absorbing and moving into clarity once again. (and hiring a good handyman ;)
It is such a process! Nice that sometimes our machines can be the mirrors for us rather than our relationships!
Much love and success with your work,
why is it so hard to remove the ego?
“Why is it so hard to remove the ego?”
Such a very powerful question. The ego is what keeps us here. It is the 3D version of our eternal essence, and thrives on addiction. It has to believe in the “reality” of life here, what some call an illusion or a dream, and in order to do so, must hang on fiercely to something dense and solid. This could be the body (and what feeds it, starves it, strengthens it or weakens it), the slings and arrows of emotional wounding, the hardship of work or the poverty of perceived lack. Each is a fabrication, existing only in the realm of the ego, yet oh so real as we make a life here on earth in 3D.
The ego has a purpose and it will not be thwarted. It will go to any lengths to keep you believing in its solidity and reality. Any lengths, including suicide. Not to sound morbid but most of us know of at least one other, even remotely, who has taken their physical life. The reason? Pain of some sort, self defined and experienced.
If we were to let go of the illusion of the belief in an ego, both positive or negative, we'd lose our attachment to the earth itself, and disappear. For an interesting conversation about this read Gary Renard's book “The Disappearance of the Universe”.
The ego has gotten a bad rap. It is neither good nor bad, but necessary. In order to function as a physical being we have to “believe” in something, require it and desire it. We have to retain some sort of addiction. This could be to food, money, sex, power, laughter, pain, poverty, illness, sadness, joy – the choices are many. When you inquire about removing the ego, I imagine you are really asking “How can we stop reacting to life from our negative, self-defeating ego?” The answer is, you can't remove the ego, not if you want to stay here, but you can absorb it and morph it into someone you'd like to hang with.
Since you are here, I suspect you would like to stay. In order to manage negative egoic reactions, you can become aware of them whenever they occur, and instruct them, lovingly, to take a hike. Do not reject them, but absorb them with compassion into your ideal version of you (it helps to visualize her). Replace them with a response that serves your greater intent. This is the intent of your eternal essence. You do not exist separately from your ego, and cannot be human without your ego, so you must integrate with it and manage your ego.
This is so hard because the ego part of you is the solid part, and the part you identify with. Statements like “I always”, “I never”, “My favorite”, “I hate”, “I love” all come from the ego part, the part who has grown up and become the woman you are today. To reduce any negative effect and reactions from your ego will take repetition, vigilance and determination. It will not be easy, but can be accomplished with a clear intent. Your ego will be trying to convince you that you WANT to be miserable, lonely, angry or whatever. It will be telling you that you are entitled and it is your right to be mad. Lovingly quiet your ego, hold it close and watch as a different, happier version emerges.
Personally, I can tell you that the work involved is oh so worth it. Magic is at the other end of acceptance and love for every part of you, including your ego. I wish you only oneness.
“How can live a happy 3D life while ascending in other dimensions? “
First I'd like to talk about your life, in “3d” or any other “d”. The choice to be here in physicality was consciously made, by you. It was not a consolation prize to the place nobody wanted to go. You are currently living in a highly sought after place, earth – in 3d.
The reason it may not feel so “happy” may be due to your awareness of why you chose it, as well as your understanding about what makes someone happy. Happiness is a choice. At any moment, we can decide to find happiness in our situation. It is not the moments that bring happiness or sadness, it is your decision about them. Rain means a very different thing perhaps to a bride on her wedding day, and to a farmer, yet both are humans, living in 3d, experiencing the same weather.
I do not mean to be flip. I would like you to consider something about who you actually are. You are a master creator, and being here on earth is a gift you chose as well as one you were chosen for. It is a privilege to incarnate here! We are gifted, and earth, in 3d, is a unique place. It is filled with emotion and sensation, both which spark creation. Life here, in fact, is OUR collective creation. We made this, and continue to make it with each thought and every intent. It is our belief about a thing that makes it appear to be however it is. All is perception.
I think you may be referring to an idea that the “higher” dimensions are so filled with bliss and comfort and joy that to wait for them here is not enjoyable as contrast. I will tell you my understanding about all of that. Many of us believed in 2012 that “ascension” was waiting for us in December, complete with new lives, bodies and dimensions. That was a harvesting tool, intentionally planted so that our energy, when it did not occur, would be flowing and available as a feast for those beings who feast on our anxiety. It was not real.
You are not “waiting” for any other dimension, ascension, or any other more elevated state. You are a beacon of light, there are none more elevated than you. Own your brilliance. Understand that no other dimension offers the rich fabric of diverse and intense sensation, feeling, emotion and pleasure that earth does. You chose earth to experience it all – the pain, the pleasure, the heartache and the passion. You wanted to be here, and you got here!
Now that you are here, well, figuring out what to do with all this power and all this emotion is part of the ride. That is the fun of it. Just decide to enjoy the trip. That decision alone changes everything. You'll see. Happiness is found there.
It is you, here, right now, that you've been waiting for.
Where is the balance in intimacy?
“Where is the tipping point between doing what I love to do and giving in an intimate relationship? I find it difficult to pay attention to both without feeling conflicted.”
Your question is a perfect example of living in a polarized world. Even in our most intimate and close places, there is a sense of division. The pull of “what I love to do” and “giving in an intimate relationship” exists for you here because of an imbalance.
We've grown up with ideas of “what I must do for others” as a duty and “what I must do to take care of myself” as a right. It is a skewed version of relationships that pits one against the other and forces compromise. In a very general sense, no one is happy when part of a compromise, because there is a perceived loss.
Here's how I've come to believe it actually works. Perhaps after considering these words, you'll happen upon your own “tipping point”.
When thoughts and feelings about more and less enter into the negotiations of close personal relationships, they are not about how much you are giving or not giving to and getting or not getting from the perceived “other”. These thoughts are reflections of self care.
In order to love another authentically in this physical realm, we must first love ourselves. This is not semantics. This is unconditional acceptance. This is not something you've been taught or shown by example.
We have been raised as if on a desert, and our thirst has never been quenched. We've looked to our elders, our friends, our lovers, our children and even to our God to satisfy our thirst for love. They could not. Oh, they gave what they could share. However they would not deplete their own cup, as that would have been suicide.
Consequently, it has never been enough. You've learned to hoard whatever it is you regard as self-love and you resent any “other” whom you imagine wants to take it away from you. Hence, the imbalance.
We have not learned to quench our own thirst – no one could show us as their cups were also mostly empty. A balanced approach to life, love and any intimate relationship you share occurs when you enter them carrying two things:
You must learn to love yourself in real time. This, as opposed to any perceived “right”, debt, job or duty. The things we do for each other are not love, they are things/actions. The feeling we embody while doing them is what is experienced as love or lack by both parties. Relationships expand and recede because of these unspoken expressions of emotion. There is no hiding them from each other.
A full cup is the only answer. Allowing, accepting, forgiving and honoring who you are today demands strength and a refusal to observe anything but love. There is no partitioning love. You and the “other” in this relationship you speak of are in fact One. You've perhaps been filling each others cups back and forth, over and over; leaving you both thirsty and wanting.
The answer falls to you. The “giving” you do will be filling your own cup. When this happens, you'll only want to to fill it again and again. Then you'll understand. It was always about you.
What is a chak-dala?
Can you explain to me what a Chakdala is and what is it used for?”
I will try.
Here are some words that will help you:
A reflector or reflection to enable you to see your beauty& the Truth of you.
*CHAK-DALA definition: Chakra Mandalas encoded with universal wisdom
Chakra: चाक्र The name derives from the Sanskrit word for "wheel" or "turning”.
Mandala: मण्डल A symbol in a dream, representing the dreamer's search for completeness and self-unity.
a geometric figure representing the universe in Hindu and Buddhist symbolism.
The use of a Chak-DALA is both individually determined and felt. I can share what it has meant for me and how I have used it in my life.
My first came at a time when I was struggling with not only who I was in the world, but who I was in my most intimate relationships. Each was in a state of turmoil and I was in pain. When it came, I cried at the sight of it and drank it up. I put in on my phone and stared at it whenever I was able, going places in my heart when I did.
The second came many months later. I had come to some conclusions at that point, not only about my relationships, but about who I was in the world. The piece that was missing for me was abundance. I did not know or could not conceive of how to be abundant in both my giving and receiving on this green earth. The Chak-DALA brought me full circle and I got it. It is now the backdrop on my laptop and the home page image on the website: www.sophialove.org . It is sort of where I “live” now, and it replenishes me whenever I spend time there.
How did this happen? This is not something that can be described here or with any words. It must be felt. I encourage you to join the Chak-DALA quest, here:
Also, to inquire about obtaining your own Chak-DALA, here.
Much love and good fortune to you on your journey!
