We all go through Transitions in one form or another

Polarity Speaking October 18, 2014

Relationships can be complex with all the drama, expectations, and emotional turmoil involved, however they don’t need to be.  Simplicity is a welcome approach in all your best relationships. Sometimes we need the drama in order to work out karma and to get to know ourselves better, so these relationships usually happen early on in life.  The quicker you learn your lessons the less you need the complex relationships.

Each person has many facets to their being and we are here today to discuss the sexual aspect.  “The second chakra is the sacral chakra associated with sensual movement and with sexuality. The information contained in the second chakra relates to relationship, emotions, intimacy, sexuality, creativity, work and money.” (Candess, 2014)

One part of sexuality is attraction; some call this sexual orientation, although we are going to be a little more specific.  Polarity is “the state of having two opposite or contradictory tendencies, opinions, or aspects. The polarity between male and female” (Google, 2014) What we are speaking about today is the energy between us which we either find attractive or repulsive just like in a magnet.

Each person generates their own magnetic field which fluctuates over time and some can see this as their aura.  This can get a bit complicated so no worries if you don’t get it all first time through.  I am also not going to get terribly deep with this, so if you need to go deeper I suggest doing your research, meditating on Polarity, and experimenting with these principles.

Have you ever been with someone who you were intensely attracted to, who just ‘turned you on’ by being around them?  This is what I am talking about and I call this polarity.  If not, then perhaps you have negative polarity or your system just needs to be charged.  If you remember from high school, magnets are either (+) or (-) charged and attract their opposites.  On the human scale feminine is (-) and masculine (+).  Notice I did not say male or female here because sometimes males are (-) and females (+), we call this transgender.  Transgender also is often neutral or neuter in sexual terms.

So you can see the bit about sexual orientation is off base here, because this is set at birth.  You are attracted to opposite, same sex or somewhere in between and this is hard wired and cannot be changed.  What can be changed is your polarity!  Those who are good at this are bisexual or pansexual as I prefer to call them.  Bisexual as a word is deceptive because it implies only two sexes and as we all know by now that sex and gender are spectrums or scales, not either/or.

Polarity is really simple for heterosexuals because they are strongly charged and usually specifically attracted to certain people and as the scale shifts it gets more complicated in the middle and less complicated again on the other end of the spectrum at homosexual.  Remember that Gender, Sexual Orientation, and Polarity are separate aspects of second charka energy.  Where this becomes really important to understand is for the transgender person or Gender Queer who can find this very confusing.  It has taken me years to understand it!

What makes this information valuable is if you are neutral, potential does not exist for you.  Think in terms of electricity and magnets.  If your polarity is neutral you neither attract nor repel, so in relationships this negates any possibility for sexual attraction.  On the orientation scale this would be asexual.  So what I am saying is without potential, no work gets done.  This aspect of your life remains idle.  Sexual energy transfer is how we charge the system (by having sex).  Being charged up gives us energy and purpose driving our actions.  The masculine shares physical energy in this transfer and the feminine shares mental and emotional energy so if you have one in excess or deficiency this will drive your attraction toward those who can balance your energy.  A person can be strongly charged and still in balance which is the goal here I suppose.  Meaning you have an abundance of all three energies.

Test these concepts as I present them here and see for yourself how they are true for you.  I share from my own experience and understanding and certainly do not claim to know all.  I do find this fascinating though and encourage others to get to know themselves better also.

The question for me arises; did I transition to balance my energy?  Being male born and attracted to neither sex, I first was attracted to females (with some mental coercion from my psyche as to what is proper) and then later to males (so again the psyche pushed me to be of opposite sex).  As it ends up I identify as Pansexual, but then identity is just your perception of reality (if there really is one)!

Karmic Money

Filed under: Uncategorized — Sequoia Elisabeth @ 9:14 am
Tags: , , , ,

Have you ever thought about where your money has come from?  I don’t mean printing presses or banks.  I mean energetically.  What sort of energy does money carry with it?  Consider this carefully.  Was that $20 bill your holding involved in a robbery or drug deal transaction?

When money is created at the printing press it is simply paper with ink on it, the energy it carries is neutral.  As soon as it touches a hand it takes on karmic energy and this builds in each and every transaction.  So let’s say you get a large windfall from a relative who wills you the money.  Their side of the family was always wealthy and loved to do philanthropic work.  Most likely this money will possess positive karma and will attract more money like it.  So you prosper from this point on.

Now let us look at a scenario many people dream and hope for every day because most of us don’t have wealthy family.  Winning the jackpot lottery is something everyone desires, right?  Consider where this money has been and since there is a lot of it the energy it carry’s is intense!  Most likely it will have picked up quite a bit of negative energy and so it goes… many of the Grand Prize winners have lost or spent all the money in under five years.  They are right back where they started from.

The moral to this tale is simply be aware of what you wish for and more importantly cherish what you already have!  Know that everything comes with a price and we are not talking money here.  Energy is everywhere and objects can collect and store this energy.

Here is an example you may relate to.  Ever talk to your car?  Are you nice to it?  Do you curse the car when things don’t go your way or it breaks down?  What if you praised your car and held gratitude for it?  I suppose the easiest way to put it is this; What you put out, you get back.  As for the windfall you’ve been wishing for, keep it positive!

E-motion Pictures October 7, 2014

Filed under: Spirituality — Sequoia Elisabeth @ 1:26 pm
Tags: , , , , ,

We are human and this means we feel emotion.  E-motion, energy in motion….  Is this all we are? Of course not, but this what makes us unique in this world.  When a person is immature emotions often get the better of them and as they grow they learn to harness this energy and direct its flow.  It is a tool for deepening appreciation and understanding of life itself.  Would you be afraid of a hammer or a pencil?  Of course not, they are simply tools for expression… for creating.  Emotions are also this … a tool for creating, expressing, and appreciating.  Even though emotions are only one aspect of our being we must learn to respect this aspect and indeed embrace this gift of being human.

With all this being said, there is a wonderful creation we have made to honor, practice, and appreciate the emotions of mankind, The Motion Picture!  Today it comes in many forms from home video & webcam to TV & Movies.  There is no greater tool for learning and appreciating emotion than this medium of TV & Movies.  And let us remember in the beginning they were called Motion Pictures for a very simple reason.  In fact they are E-Motion in Pictures.  So if a movie or television show does not bring out your emotions, I posit it does not deserve to be viewed and that it has failed its purpose.  When I watch a show I use two markers for success, one being that the show makes me laugh, and the other is I feel the need to cry.  The tears may be of joy, but if you are not crying then you are not connecting to your emotional drivetrain.  The key word here is feeling.  The shows you watch should make you feel and the deeper the better!

Now that you are connected to your inner feelings we can move on to the positive and negative of emotion.  Does it matter which type you are feeling?  Of course it does!  Negative feelings are important to sort out and movies can really help you do this without the dire consequences of doing it in person.  Do you know what envy feels like?  How about jealousy?  These are powerful emotions and learning to deal with them constructively is a prerequisite for Spiritual growth and for living peacefully in this world.  Will you need to sort through these emotions in person? Yes and if you have a good understanding of them from watching movies the process is less harmful and more beneficial.  The same can be said for positive emotions like love and respect.

The Universe provides all you need to grow and prosper.  Movies are a valuable part of the process when used consciously.  Never fear your emotions, nor should you avoid feeling them.  Allow them to flow and you will be the better for it.  When you make this a conscious process more the better!  I bless you on your Journey of Love and happy viewing.

Ancestral Forgiveness – Going With The Flow August 29, 2014

During meditation today I had a deep insight into my “Journey of Love” or “my Life” or “this grand forgiveness exercise we call life”.  How the tapestry of family is woven together became clear to me, at least to a certain point.  Perhaps the more I ‘dream’ about this the clearer it will get.  The vision goes like this: 

the male body given me at birth functions to balance the abundant mental/emotional energies of the Divine Feminine already flowing through my being. (There is no denying this energy as it consumes all that I think, say, and do) Normally a woman would get Masculine energy from a male partner, but this is not how a transgender woman operates or at least not this one (me). The physical energy of the Divine Masculine comes with resistance or reluctance to me, but I have access to this energy when I am willing to embrace it. This resistance to Divine Masculine energy is part and parcel stemming from my Aunts and Grandmother who felt they could not find “a good man” and that in fact they did not even exist. Their painful relationships have flowed over into the next generation as it so often does when these issues are not faced, meaning forgiven.

(I am sorry, Please forgive me, Thank you, I love you – Hoʻoponopono Prayer)

Perhaps they had too much Masculine energy since they were living in a time consumed by it.  On a grander scale it could be said all of mankind was overwhelmed with this patriarchal masculine energy and we are now moving into an age of the Divine Feminine. 

Our ancestors are an important part of who we are because of the simple principle of Oneness.  We are them and they us!  This is why we need to know our ancestors and family lines as it gives us insight to who we are and the challenges we are facing.  It also gives us ample opportunity to work on them and by this I mean working to clear misconceptions, misdeeds, and karma.  It is a balancing of our energies which is nature’s constant function. The phrase “Go with the Flow” applies perfectly here.  We are not here to do anything, create anything, or even accomplish anything; we are here simply to balance the flow while simultaneously being the observer of life in this flow.  Perhaps this is what is meant by “being yourself”.  Let it Be!

Acceptance is Key… Revisited August 18, 2014

Filed under: Spirituality — Sequoia Elisabeth @ 10:08 am
Tags: , , ,

Transition is a journey, whether the transition is gender (identity) related, materially related, or spiritually related. Preparation helps all go smoothly, while being ready to handle the unexpected becomes a valued skill.  Learning to accept what you have and working with it is both the beginning and the end of the journey.  The “what you have” is dynamic as is the journey.  So let’s begin.

First of all find out who you are.  This is not as simple as it may seem.  The person you see in the mirror is not necessarily who you are.  The body is simply a vehicle rather than who you are.  Just like your car is not who you are, neither is your body.  Getting to the point where you are happy (accept) with the image in the mirror and with yourself is sometimes a long road.  There is no right way to get there, so leave the GPS at home and use your intuition instead.

Introspection comes easily for some of us and much harder for others, so if you are one of those who does not like to look within, then this will be even more important to you, although you may need to get help.

The journey goes something like this, look in the mirror, what do you see?  Ok, this is your vehicle.  It was given you for a reason and most likely that reason is that it will take you where you need to go, not necessarily where you want to go.  Accept this gift!  Right here and now, STOP thinking you know where you are going.  Stop thinking you know who you are.  Let go of any preconceptions you may have acquired.  Each day is a new day and one with the potential to discover your true self.

Now that you have discovered your vehicle, go take it for a ride.  Test the cornering ability, the acceleration, and the stopping distance.  See how good you are at changing situations, demands on your services or skills.  On the road keep a notebook with you and record your best features, skills, and attributes.  Get to know what you are good at and what you need work on.  Accept where you are as perfect in this moment, all is well.

You have a long list now and are ready to pursue this even further.  Stay focused on the desirable features, skills, and attributes, the ones you put on your list and have already accepted.  Staying motivated at this level is about focusing on your goodness and forgiving all else.  If you noticed any undesirable attributes on the list you can acknowledge them, thank them for being a part of you, and then let them go.  To symbolize this write them down on a piece of paper.  In a safe location, burn the paper while focusing on gratitude – be grateful for the learning they afforded you.  Everything in your life serves a purpose so be grateful while at the same time do not get attached to them.  For instance, fat is often a shield we use to protect us from perceived danger or undesirable situations.  Notice I did not say “real” danger.  Once you become comfortable with the situations in your life and can accept your gifts of physical beauty and vigor then life supports this reality.  It all starts with your acceptance and willingness to see the beauty no matter your perceptions.

What is next for you?  Be optimistic and joyful, you have just let go of all your troubles.  The process continues and goes deeper each time.  Accept and repeat.  Life will evolve and get better and better!  Before you know it love and acceptance will exist in you on a deeper level than you even knew existed!  As this occurs your experience in the outer world conforms and reflects this reality.  The only real way to change the world is to change yourself!  The world is just you reflected!

Remember a few things along the way.  Everything happens for a reason, resistance is futile, and everyone is going through a similar journey, so give them what you would wish in return, acceptance.  Joy is in the journey!

All Death is Suicide 2014 August 11, 2014

Filed under: Spirituality,Transitions — Sequoia Elisabeth @ 9:55 pm
Tags: , , ,

The world is indeed evolving and I am glad to be a part of it.  The subject for today’s blog is not new but it is also near and dear to my heart.  I repost this blog in honor of Robin Williams who brought Joy to us all, as well as teaching us the lesson of Love.  Remember to remain open to new ideas and never judge others for the path they choose.

I find it strange that to die by “accident” is unavoidable but to die by suicide is sinful and unacceptable.  These beliefs serve a purpose of course, because they help us to make it through tough times when it is so easy to just end it.  Love is the answer, everything else are just excuses.  Consider the following quotes and make up your own mind.

“There is no such thing as an accident; everything that happens to you in every moment of every day is an exact vibrational match (thanks to the Law of Attraction) to the dominant thoughts you are thinking.

No exceptions, ever.

And, just to really throw the cat among the pigeons (as the saying goes), here’s one of Abraham’s most controversial (but completely true) sayings…

All death is suicide.

…which is a natural conclusion anyway if there is no such thing as an accident.” Stingray

It seems that everything is a choice, even death!  This goes right down to the color of your eyes and your genetic structure.  Not that all choice is conscious.  These choices were made before you were born and through thoughts, words, and actions taken by you along the path.

“However, the fear of death is unnecessary.  The truth is that all death is suicide.  At its core, everything is a choice.  There is an awakening occurring on the planet for those who are paying attention in which we are realizing how much choice we actually have in the creation of our reality.  As we accept our power we must let go of the desire to be accepted or understood by those who are stuck in mainstream thought.  This willingness to transcend the fears of others and become a pioneer is crucial to personal evolution.

In life, a central challenge is to let go of the idea that your body is decaying with time.  It is not.  It is actually recreating itself constantly.”  Unification.com

“In the Conversations with God Series by Neale Donald Walsh, God says that all death is suicide, and it is just a matter of whether we want to do it quickly, or over time with eating bad food, breathing polluted air, smoking, drinking etc. If someone is in pain, God does not want one to suffer, and does not blame someone for leaving their body quickly. If someone was to love you so much they would understand that, to keep you is selfish, everyone is sad when someone dies, not because so much they think something bad happened to them, but they cry for themselves, that what they want is no longer with them. Take this story for instance I was so in love with this guy, we lived together for a year, but I noticed he would go in the bedroom all sad and close the door sometimes. I found out he was looking at pictures of his kids he loved so much and his wife he was still in love with. I planned it out and talked him into moving to the city where his children and ex lived, and when we got there I said this is where I drop you off, I am moving on. I loved him enough to let him go and try to work things out with his wife and to be there for his children. Now, that is love.”  Kathy Miller

Remember that every thought, word, and action leads to your experience in this world and ultimately to your fate.  We are guided by higher powers, no matter how you think of them, Divine Being, God, or Higher Self.  Listen to this guidance and you will make it through the maze of life to the Promised Land.  There is no right or wrong way home.  Nanu-Nanu!

Life As A Relay Race Revisited July 24, 2014

Filed under: Spirituality,Transitions — Sequoia Elisabeth @ 11:11 am
Tags: , , , , ,

This is two previous blogs I posted and now we revisit them with new eyes and in a revised edition.  It always amazes me how quickly learning can take place.  Mostly I have made grammatical corrections and clarified a few of the messages, otherwise the blog remains intact.

If life was as a relay race, are you nearing the end of your race?  What have you learned which is important to put in your baton?  Keeping it brief, think of the top ten things you would make sure to pass along.  This is your legacy of advice to pass to the next runner.  By thinking on this topic ahead of time you will more fully appreciate your accomplishments and energize the rest of your life as well as those who run with you and those who come after.  I will go first…the following is my baton… my top ten essentials to pass along.

  • 1) Remember to breathe, consciously breathe, notice how the air fills your body and feel the energy as it invigorates each and every cell. This process keeps you in the present moment and it is the secret to a healthy, happy life.
  • 2) Remember life is not about you. Serving others is the greatest accomplishment any of us can make.  Giving is receiving!  Notice how you feel after helping a friend or giving a gift to a loved one and you know exactly of what I speak!
  • 3) Share your gifts (talents) by doing something you love. Just making a living (working solely for money) is self-destructive!  Let your living make you or to say this another way, allow life to sustain you (Money is only one reward for your efforts).  Living is the rule not the exception. (Money is not a requirement to live) The human body can go 30 days without food and up to a week without water.  Notice how life supports you and the experience just gets better and better!
  • 4) Feel your feelings! Emotion is the fuel for manifestation (creating what you desire).  Fear is a powerful negative emotion and thus attracts precisely what you do not want!  Is your desire at a passionate positive level or a fearful negative level?  Desire for something must be greater than fear of the opposite in order for it to manifest.  Facing the dark side (negative emotions) clears these forces from your life and it is as easy as turning a light on to illuminate a dark room.  It is not possible to experience fear and love at the same time, so choose Love!  Simply realizing you have inner light to shine whenever and wherever you need it can make all the difference.  Shine your light Beloved!
  • 5) Question reality, always and all ways! Things are often not what they seem, so do not judge.  Good or bad do not exist except in your mind, so release your attachment to this belief and life flows with ease.  My favorite quote on this topic is “All the worlds a stage and we are merely players” (Shakespeare).  Dealing with fantasy and fiction is our way of learning to see Truth.  Just because something is false does not mean it will go away and in fact it is the false things we must deal with first in order to find the truth.  Be willing to wade through the shit to reach the shore of truth.  The rewards are well worth it.
  • 6) Curiosity is the fuel which keeps us going. Without it you will go nowhere!  My favorite character as a child was Curious George, the monkey in yellow.  If you have not seen these programs I suggest checking them out and even if you have revisit them from time to time.  The innocence of youth is a gift we need not loose.  Curiosity is a big part of this innocence.  Also do not equate innocence with ignorance; it is more accurate to say they are opposites!
  • 7) Go with the flow…. “Resistance is futile” (Star Trek).  “What you resist persists.” (Carl Jung) What this means is to trust the flow of life and do what you must.  Blindly wandering the in dark is dangerous so it is important to find the flow (meaning) and go with it.  The truth of the matter is there is no meaning to life or more simply put, YOU are the meaning of life.  Your life, your creation!  No this does not contradict number 2, because God is all there is.  Your life is God expressing through you (a definition of flow).  This is also why nothing is either right or wrong.  It is because it needs to be in order for ‘God’s experience’ or ‘Infinite Intelligence’ to express though you.  The part which confuses us is Free Will.  We have both free will and destiny!  Life unfolds regardless to your choices, so if you really need to experience something, then you will eventually experience it.  You have the freedom to choose how you experience these things, not whether you will experience them.  Love and loss are examples we all seem to experience at some point in life, so accept these experiences with an open mind and a desire to learn and grow.  You can choose to avoid certain experiences which might be painful, but if “life” needs to experience it through you, it will.  Resistance causes pain; the more resistance, the more pain. Consider this when making choices in life.
  • 8) Life itself is a relationship! As humans we are most concerned with closer relationships.  Family is the first challenge we all face and then there is romance.  All I have mentioned prior applies here!  Just understand the world is a reflection of who you are, so those who are close to you are different aspects of ‘God’s experience’ or ‘Infinite Intelligence’.  So loving them is loving yourself!  While this is simple no one is saying it is easy.  Loving your family and close relations can be the opposite also and be experienced as hate, so consider this carefully as you observe your relations.  I call this a love/hate relationship and once they are seen through the eyes of oneness the relationship becomes whole again.
  • 9) Take care of your body. It is your vehicle for experiencing life and if you abuse it life will be cut short.  As we grow the adolescent years are the most challenging to the physical body, between puberty and the challenges of becoming an adult these years can be most difficult, but at the same time they can be the most rewarding.  You will test your limits and this is to be expected, just do so with caution.  Listen to your inner voice of reason.  This is the voice which is whispering, if you hear it loud and clear then do the opposite! (The ego is loud and demands to be heard, avoid this voice.  Instead get quiet and listen to the still small voice which is your Soul).
  • 10) Lastly and in continuation of caring for your body understand that life responds to your thoughts about it, and not just your thoughts but those of the majority. The majority of people believe eating healthy food makes you healthy; however, I say having healthy thoughts makes you eat healthy food! It is literally possible to think yourself healthy!  Of course the best advice here is Ben Franklin’s saying, “All things in moderation”.  Alcohol is good for you in small doses, but if abused it will kill you.  Fried food on occasion is fine, but eating only fried food will slowly destroy your health.  Strive for balance, love your body, even or especially the peculiarities, and respect others’ choices to do the same.
