Nature

I was talking to a friend of mine yesterday, as we walked along Glenmore Reservoir alternately freezing our faces off and being too warm (cold wind, only 0 degrees out and warm sun, typical Calgary weather) and we got to talking about archetypes.

You’ve probably heard about archetypes: they are classifications in psychology, in astrology (what’s your sign?) as well as the Chinese signs (this is the year of the Ox); there are others out there as well, ones that I’m more familiar with like Carolyn Myss’ archetypes, as well as the archetypes of the Micheal System. I’m also developing a set of archetypes that my guides have been giving me a bit of an outline on.

By definition (thanks to Wikipedia) an archetype is a model of a person, personality, or behavior. In addition, there are 2 other classifications: a stereotype—a personality type observed multiple times, especially an oversimplification of such a type; and an epitome—personality type exemplified, especially the “greatest” such example.

We are all a variety of archetypes and we are often defined by those embodiments, whether we realize it or not. How often have you heard – oh that person is a {insert astrological sign here}, and that’s why they are like that.  Or this person is this way, etc because of this.

We are also born with what we call a nature, also called personality, a way that we do things. This is a fact:  we are born already imprinted with a basic outline, so somewhere along the way, someone decided to classify those personality traits and tendencies and give them a name. Notice how naming something gives it power? But to get back to archetypes . . .The evidence would certainly support the supposition that we are typecast before we even get started!

Sometimes that’s a good thing because as we are growing up we can get a clue as to why we’re like this or react that way. It’s our nature. It both defines and explains who we are and why we are. This can bring us some comfort but it can be used as a crutch, too, or as an excuse for bad behaviour.As an excuse for not trying to look at our stuff, for not valuing ourselves enough to love ourselves and look after ourselves.  It’s in my nature, that’s just the way I am, yada, yada.

In the growth process of becoming a “bigger” person, calmer, more detached (yes, we are talking about me), or more involved, more confident, more outgoing, etc we take what we were given, that basic outline that we started with at birth, that was shaped by the beliefs and habits of our parents, our families, our friends, our teachers, our Romans, etc and we try and overcome it.  But who we are today is different than who you were when you were born, n’est ce pas?

It’s like Amish friendship bread, you start with a base then throw other stuff into the mix (or you could start with the martini analogy too – start with an excellent vodka and go from there).  It sometimes turns out okay, sometimes needs a bit of tweaking, and sometimes needs to be changed completely.

So,  here’s the thinker.

In the process of becoming a clearer, greater person, of achieving that Christ/Buddha consciousness, do we really have to overcome our nature, our basic “I was born this way” nature? Or do we need to find our true nature, and come back to who we were as a baby because this is our true nature, by actually overcoming our programming, our extra recipe additions? Or, if you believe in past lives, that we carry stuff over from other lifetimes, is the nature we are really trying to get back to one that looks us in the face everyday, that of Divine Source?

This was the conundrum I was discussing with my friend. Is overcoming your nature the key to growth as a soul?

No, it’s not. We are all divine beings, a part of the Source, of God, of the Universal Energy or the Universal Love, the Universe, Allah, or Buddha? Therefore, our true nature is that of unconditional love, of Universal Love, of the Divine. So it’s not overcoming our nature that we have to do, it’s getting back to our nature by overcoming the programming, the archetypes, the extra mix in the drink, by distilling ourselves down (or up) to the vibration of Source.

Hmm, well, just a few things to filter out . . . 🙂
With love and light,

2012, Part 3

We were talking about 2012 (okay, I was talking) and what we could do to help balance the earth as she goes through her growth shifts and such (like weather changes) in the coming months and through the dreaded 2012 and that whole end of the world thing.

First I talked about the win-win of healing work (2012, Part 1) and how as a healer (as do other energy workers) working with a client, I set an intent for the healing session that the client moves out whatever “stuff” they have that no longer serves them, in a timely and gentle manner, and that the energy (Universal Love, Source, God, etc) that I draw through me in making the healing space for the client, helps the client do whatever is for their highest good. Also in there is the energy flow (Universal Love) through me as the healer that also benefits me and is used by my spirit and will for my highest good, and not at the cost of the client – sort of a secondary benefit.

I then talked about win-win-win (2012, Part 2), where in doing a healing and setting the intent for your client session, that you also set the intent that any extra energy (Universal Love) not used by the client, or yourself, be forwarded to Gaia, the Earth, for her to use for her highest good. I also emphasized only doing this if you felt comfortable and that it’s important not to compromise client care.

An alternative to that would be having a client session with Gaia as your primary client, thereby directing sending Universal / Unconditional Love Energy to her for her use. You could also pick a place on the planet and send energy directly there, setting the intent that the energy will shift and balance out anything not for Gaia’s highest good. Notice I didn’t say move out stuff – let’s not set the intent that she decides to move out people . . . although in setting the intent to balance out an area, that may be one of the results . . . who knows . . .).

So, focus on an area to balance to help smooth out and drastic shifts. Get a map of the world, or do some searching on CNN to find out where things are at unrest and work on that area.

Just a note: The reason why win-win-win would work and not compromise either yourself or your client, is that in my experience, I have very rarely been completely maxed out in energy flow by my client or my own needs. I have to date, been able to handle more energy than the client can draw through me. Therefore, since my capacity is greater than the client’s needs, any extra energy drawn through me can flow to me and to wherever I direct it. However, you need to do some soul searching and determine if that would work for you.

Now, the part where the non-healer, well, any and all humans really, comes in is here: be happy. Find things to do that make you happy (See posting Finding Your Truth, Jan 19/09). As the connectors between heaven and earth, between Earth and Source (Universal Love), we filter energy through us all the time without even realizing it. We are like the cilia (the sensory receptors and filters) for the planet.

So if we’re running energy through us everyday to the earth, and it’s been proven that positive thoughts have as much power as negative (although negative are more prevalent) and that positive thinking, visualization and acting can have incredible effects, doesn’t it make sense that if you have positive energy running through you, not only are you going to be happier and more positive and feel better about yourself but the earth will receive that positive vibe as well, thereby helping her heal and feel better about herself and all those parts attached to her (like us)? And we know the earth understands vibration – remember earthquakes?

So, we can all do this – do things that make us happy, and that translates to positive energy being sent to thers around us and to the earth as well. Believe me, although you may not realize it, you will be thankful for it in the end and the earth certainly can use all the good vibes she can get.

I hear the Beach Boys now , . . “I’m pickin’ up good vibrations . . . she’s sending me excitations . . .Good, good, good, good vibrations” . . .
