Your Third Chakra and Power ~ Jim Self & Roxane Burnett

   "Your third chakra is all about power, control, judgment, resistance. Is your universe being shaken by our disrupted world? Will you hold onto 3D emotions, or make another choice?" ~Jim Self

5 Signs You’re Out of Spiritual Alignment & Ways to Rejuvenate Your Connection ~ Nick Polizzi

   Do you ever get a nagging sensation that something is not quite right inside of you? I’m not talking about a kink in your neck or an upset stomach – this is deeper than that. Maybe it’s a limitation within yourself, or a lack of flow and direction where there once was an abundance.

   Familiar with any of those?

   Of course you are, because you’re human! If you didn’t encounter occasional slumps, I’d be worried that you had a screw loose.

   Inhabiting these earthly bodies on this physical plane, it’s normal to sometimes feel out of alignment with who we truly are. Yes, it’s our responsibility to recalibrate and reconnect whenever we can, but it’s silly to beat ourselves up every time we fall out of the saddle.

   The quote below illustrates how these minor setbacks are really an opportunity in disguise:

   “Contrast allows us to see what is not in alignment with our Authentic Selves, and then presents us with opportunity after opportunity to respond from a place of compassion, forgiveness, acceptance, love, joy, gratitude, etc. Thus, when we break the karmic loop we swing back into alignment with Spirit.” — Alaric Hutchinson, Living Peace

   But sometimes this “karmic loop” isn’t so obvious to us – even when we’re entangled within it. We Homo sapiens have a habit of tricking ourselves into believing that we’re absolutely fine and it’s the world around us that is the problem.

   Not to worry! We’ve got the antidote below.

Judgment of Others ~ Ram Dass

   Watch how your mind judges. Judgment comes, in part, out of your own fear. You judge other people because you’re not comfortable in your own being. By judging, you find out where you stand in relation to other people.

   The judging mind is very divisive. It separates. Separation closes your heart. If you close your heart to someone, you are perpetuating your suffering and theirs. Shifting out of judgment means learning to appreciate your predicament and their predicament with an open heart instead of judging. Then you can allow yourself and others to just be, without separation.

   The only game in town is the game of being, which includes both highs and lows. Every time you push something away, it remains there. The pile under the rug gets very big. Your lows turn out to be more interesting than your highs because they are showing you where you’re not, where you have work to do.

   You just say, “Thank you for teaching.” You don’t have to judge another being. You just have to work on yourself.

   When somebody provokes your anger, the only reason you get angry is because you’re holding on to how you think something is supposed to be. You’re denying how it is. Then you see it’s the expectations of your own mind that are creating your own hell. When you get frustrated because something isn’t the way you thought it would be, examine the way you thought, not just the thing that frustrates you. You’ll see that a lot of your emotional suffering is created by your models of how you think the universe should be and your inability to allow it to be as it is.

Transcending Addictive Behaviors Karma - My Personal Journey of Recovery ~ Jona Bryndis

  In a recent discussion in our forum community her at transCODES the question was raised of how Addiction and Recovery tie in with Ego, Inner Child, Karma & Trauma? In this following personal reflection of this subject, I am going to share some of my personal background with you and explain how this connection became clear to me.

   In context with Recovery, Inner Child and Karma aspects are very important topics. As you all know, we don’t just regard substance abuse or obvious addictive behaviors as subject to Recovery – from an energetic standpoint, shadow, ego, co-dependency and co-addiction resemble addictive behaviors just as much as a full blown drug addiction and therefore always need to be a part of self-healing. The reason why Ego, Inner Separation, Inner Child and Shadow cannot be left out of our journey of recovery, is because they are karmically tied to our energetic expression, as they can for example increase or decrease our propensity to addictive coping behaviors in all areas of our life!

   “We understand that the presence of an addictive structure in our energy field is linked to a temporary state of separation from our inner higher power, often set up through our karmic circumstances. While we have given away our powers to external substances, activities or our ego, the reconnecting process to these severed parts is therefore the key element of our self-healing process in recovery.”

Do You Believe in Love? ~ Ben Neal

  Do you believe in love?

  I’m talking about that deep down, life changing, earth shaking, always-and-forever kind of love—the stuff of poetry and legend.

  Many people are skeptical, and for good reason. Today's culture isn't very fertile ground for romance. With social media, text messaging and online dating, we've revolutionized communication but we've lost the art of relationship. There are very few success stories. (Sometimes it seems like there are very few people having real, face-to-face conversations anymore!)

  But I believe. Scratch that. I know.

  True love is real—deep, unconditional, everlasting love.The reason it is so rare is because it is so misunderstood.
