Here's Something To Help Resolve Overwhelming Feelings
Do you mean what you say? How many times have you been prompted or simply asked by others, "Say what you mean!"
Sometimes it's difficult isn't it because the desire to be heard and to be understood and yes, to be appreciated is very strong. And yet very often the conditioning or the training has been to follow and sometimes with following, and actually quite often, you were not heard or at least it feels that way.
This is a time now when there is a great deal of mob mentality, I have spoken of these things before but I'm bringing it up again because it's important to remember that it is alright to be an individual.
If an individual dresses a little different, looks a little different, acts a little different - as long as it's benevolent - okay. And benevolent means safe for you - alright - and safe for others. If others are offended by the way you look you can't help that but if you are doing something intentionally to offend others you can help that.
So consider, are you saying what you mean or are you being mean to be mean. The trouble is, it's so overwhelming isn't it. One wants to, very often, yell and scream and get back at whoever it is thats been bugging you but the trouble is - so often one winds up getting back at those who didn't do anything to you simply because they are available and the others aren't.
So - recommendation: when all these wild feelings come up, and they will come up more and more these days especially because we feel safer in groups - alright - even if the groups are groups of unusual individuals - even if, first go out on the land someplace okay* and I recommend the following true magic to not only keep you safe but also to keep you in balance so that you will be safe while not harming others intentionally or unintentionally.
So, go on the land either during the day or during the night - it doesn't make any difference. Stand and face** the north. Put your arms straight out in front of you with your palms down. Then slowly move your arms so that you wind up with your left palm with fingers spread wide - and thumb okay - on the left side of your chest and your right palm with your fingers and thumb spread the same way on the right side of your chest (use the photo as a general guide to hand position).
Then say the following, "I am asking that I be safe and secure unto myself in the most benevolent way for me resulting in the most benevolent outcome for all beings." Hold that position for about a minute - don't look at your watch, just make your best guess. If it goes a little over a minute that's fine.
After that put your arms down at your sides hanging loosely there - alright - and make 1 complete rotation to the left ending up facing north - or as close to north as you can face. Then take 3 sidesteps to the left. Make a one quarter rotation to the left and take 6 sidesteps to the left. Then, by turning left you may turn until you are facing the direction you need to go and you can go on with your life.
I'm bringing these things up because they are real and because they come up for us even though we don't like to admit it very often - but when it happens if you have done this true magic it will be much more gentle and you will be able to much more quickly regain your balance, your composure and your sense of humor.
Goodlife to you all and goodnight.
*Know that as a general rule of thumb, as people say, it's important to care about that which you are performing true magic for. This way you do not have any inner conflicts or feelings in conflict in your body with that which you are attempting to do. This could not only cause you to feel uncomfortable but it would generally impact the true magic so much that it may not do any good.
This is what I recommend. Go outside if you can and as always try not to wear shoes that are insulating you - keeping your energy, you understand, from moving into the ground. If you need to wear shoes try to wear something that is made of a natural fiber - even leather, that's fine but not plastic or rubber - not an insulating material.
Then go out on the land someplace. And remember - always to go someplace where you feel safe including your own backyard if that is a place to feel safe but if you go out in the country or someplace else always do these things someplace where you have permission - that's important - so that you can feel safe and so that those who may have some claim to the land upon which you are standing will be comfortable with your presence.
It's always good to do true magic in a place where there is no conflict - outer or inner. This way it is more likely to work in the most benevolent way. You can of course wear insulating shoes to get there if you have to drive there or have to go in a vehicle of some sort but once you get there put on non-insulating shoes or go barefoot if you feel comfortable there and then stand out on the land.
**We face north because that is the direction where creation takes place and it is also the direction where the manifestation of what we are attempting to create begins to take place in our outer world as well as in our inner world.
