Hi D,

 

since starting on my jounrney with you I have been allowing myself to be aware of, nurture a state of neutral intent.

 

I am coming to understand and respect the depth of meaning and what personal growth is needed to achieve it Smile

 

What I am starting to experience is as I sense fear coming up, then come from a place of neutral intent, then just 'sit' with it I become very aware of how my body is reacting to fear. Then as the fear leaves me again I sense the release and peace I feel in my body.

 

I am learning that to trust and allow every experience without fear (or at least when it turns up allowing it to pass!) that I am receiving guidance, ideas that seem conceptually new to me. I feel comforted by this received knowledge.

 

Of late I have felt the presence of dog with me, a gentle female German pointer… never had a dog, get a sense I may enjoy such a companion on this earth walk!

Alisun,

Very good work!

Yes, you do have Dog as a lifelong animal spirit.  She came immediately as I was reading your post, which means that she is indeed walking with you this life path.  Dog is a powerful animal spirit to have.

Well, here I thought I was close to overcoming my fear boxes when last night I looked over to my left and nearly panicked when I saw a face low to the ground looking back at me.  I had a good laugh at myself when I realized someone had left their notebook computer down there, and I was looking at my own face reflecting in the screen.  It still took me another five minutes for my heart rate to go back down.

 

Guess I need to take  a few more steps back on this.  Laugh

/hugs for all.  :)

Dax,

Yes, do that.  The fear thing is, in my experience, the hardest one to conquer.  At least you know what it was…and that is a good thing.  Perhaps it happened to show you that you need to work on letting go of fear a bit more.

Kiss

Diana,

Is wanting to accomplish things in life an ego-driven box? When kids are taught that they should be everything they can be, is that teaching them to be competitive or is that good encouragement? Does the soul know what it came to here to learn from childhood or does it only find out through trial and error by old age? I've always struggled with the question of why I'm here, what is my life about. I was told many things that I'm a natural this or that, but no exploration led to anything. Someone told me once that if you believe that you are supposed to be a Ferrari when you're actually a skateboard, you feel like a failure. But if you know that you're a skateboard, your life is fulfilled. I don't know if this makes any sense. I've been trying to formulate this question for the last couple of days… Thanks for your help. Smile

DP,

Remember that you are also here in a physical body that is mind/ego driven.  You have to have a certain amount of that in order to do what you need to do or want to do physically.

That said, if one is ego driven they will strive for fame, money, etc. above all the spiritual aspects of their life.  The lesson is to learn to walk in balance between the two.

Humans are taught at an early age that success if tied to physical achievement and that alone.  The importance of trusting one's intuition is given no merit, when in fact it is that which will together with the physical part bring you bliss.

Also, Humans are taught that failure to an awful thing.  Failure is not.  It is a different kind of lesson.  Perhaps one failed because it was not what they were supposed to do.  So-call “failure” can be used as a very effective guide to what one should be doing.  Failure is not bad, it simply means that you did not accomplish something you thought you should have accomplished.  The person should not have a feeling of being less worthy, less intelligent, etc. than if they had succeeded.  They are yet another form of balance.  No one succeeds at everything they try.  The trick is to not dwell in society's negative view of failure because it is wrong.

There is nothing wrong with being happy that you are a skateboard.

Your life path encompasses your whole life.  You aren't supposed to have all the answers in the middle of the walk.  It is fluid.  It changes.  What was important yesterday may not be important today.  That is where losing fear is important.  Dare to change you walk if you need to.  You will still have learned lessons from your “failures” and that is why you are here…to learn.

Kiss

Thanks for your wisdom. Kiss It's been a big lesson for me to not buy into society's measures of my life. I'm starting to feel that I moved to the States 20 years ago especially to go through being “alienated” and “wrong” against society's standards, which has finally forced me back to listening to my own intuition and inner knowledge. It's such a good reminder to balance the physical and the spiritual. Thanks again.

D,

Fatigue is another indicator for me that I'm going against my soul's direction. Only recently have I been ready to recognize this and accept it. If you watch ads on TV, fatigue is one of the main enemies to conquer in this society, along with ED and aging.

The nice thing about being a skateboard is that if you can't get any fuel, you don't turn into a giant hunk of rusting trash.  Laugh

That first paragraph was both funny and oh, so true.  Very well stated.  The fact that you are realizing this is a very good thing.  It means you can deal with it as you need to.  Laugh

Deer teaches you to show gentleness of word, deed, and intent.  She also teaches you to listen…really listen (in this case to your soul).

Fox watches unseen.  He is a great teacher of the use of stealth in doing this work…just watching and then fixing the problems as they arise.

Wolf deals with family and/or family issues.  Family does not necessarily mean your physical family, but can also mean your spiritual family.  Wolf is a teacher; brings you guidance in dreams and meditations; teaches you to face the end of one's cycle with dignity and courage (in this case getting the mind/ego out of the driver's seat); instinct linked with intelligence, to name a few.

Bear usually doesn't say anything.  She will teach you healing through introspection and solitude.

An animal that is very good with ego problems is Cougar/Mountain Lion.  It teaches you leadership without ego…so it is very adept at handling ego related situations…and this animal will take no prisoners.  It is quite unafraid of your mind/ego.

If you have animals beginning to come to you, you are doing quite well.

Just wanted to post to the topic of ego release and animal guides. I've been on an important trip in southern California staying with my partner's friends. They live in a private community on a golf course. Lo and behold, the place is full of animals: rabbits, lizards, hummers, coyote, you name it. On a Mother's Day barbecue in an upscale neighborhood, my partner and I spent some precious minutes with a rattlesnake… The animals told me everything: how certains things will go, what to look out for, specific events that came true exactly as told. It's been a valuable experience in listening to them instead of my mind/ego. As an example, I'm taking care of a neighbor's house and cat while he's in Europe, except for these few days while I'm in California. The neighbor filling in for me had a mishap and let the cat out of the house. For a couple of days, the cat was missing. I was in a nursery with a pond and turtles resting on a rock. They told me the cat will come home on his own. I wasn't worried then. I talked to the cat, too, remotely, asking him to just come home. The next morning, I got a call that he indeed came home on his own. I didn't tell anyone that I “knew” but felt very good inside. Smile

G'day Diana

 

I have a huge problem, I love this life for all it stands for ego & all so really I don't have a problem at all because I have no real conflicts just human ones,  I appreciate what we are experiencing but not exactly humanly so if you get what I mean. Once your there you want to be here & once here you want to be there, appreciating both for what they are by accepting them for what they are is very rewarding however I do have a little way to go in appreciating the other none human side of me & incorporating this as well into this reality.

 

This is funny because I'm in physical pain all the time, have been since I was six but I still appreciate this life for what it is, I have more of a problem with my none human side strangely enough however once you understand it's not so strange after all for the main reason once there I want to be here as this reality has so much to offer. 

 

Love 

Mathew

Hey Mathew. Diana's been in a lot of pain lately and so she hasn't really been present on the site the way she used to be, and that's affected the general attendance on the forums.

 

Just letting you know that your post was pretty cool. Keep up the work, and as she's already said, this site does have a lot of useful tools on it, even if the traffic has been low. 🙂

Daximil,

I have been wondering about Diana, so thanks for the update.

It's been a very slow year for me physically and I seldom post much anywhere these days, however I do check on postings here and appreciate your helping taking care of this site…

Please note that I'm not a website insider or anything. I'm just friends with her on facebook. 🙂  Apparently Diana's been in the hospital and is having to use a walker to get around. 🙁

I know Diana has said she's going on the Journey, and may not be back here about anything else.  It truly amazes me how much I've learned and benefited over the years from her work. 

 

And today, when I've been having a lot of fear come up to be cleared, I found this:

“Likewise, there are things in light that are equally as scary.  If someone tells you that light is all good and shadow is all bad, they they fail to understand the nature of either.”

 

I thought the second part was easy to understand, until I realized I had trouble with the first, so I wasn't really getting it.  It took a long time to make a connection that worked for me; I kind of flashed on this  society, the hypocrisy and lies/advertising we're surrounded by, and realized the emphasis, kind of insistence, on light, or rather a sad pretense of it, is nothing like real light when it's what we need.  It was kind of a chain of associations, through hypocrisy, fear of real life, phoniness, to cold-hearted and the most awful things, which are born from that kind of imbalance. 

 

So, having needed light to balance lately, I finally saw how there are bad things in the light too, and how imbalance and ignorance or denial of either is the only really bad thing. 

 

There's so much here, I can always keep learning, and probably go on this way forever. 

 

Much love, Leila

Mathew,

I just found this post and a couple of other ones you posted (which I will answer also).  Thank goodness I get an email for each post.  Smile

I, too, have been in pain for the vast majority of my life.  It makes our personal paths more difficult to navigate through.

It is easier to lose focus when you are doing spiritual work as the energy you are using there is held more softly than your mind/ego holds its energy.  This is one of the boxes you have to work on to make each side equal…and it does take work.  Even I have been waging a war on this box as my pain has been really severe…and it has finally begun to come back to balance.

Use what I wrote above and see if you can't begin to have your balance return.  Remember that it will take time and that Turtle won the race by being slow and steady.

Kiss,

diana
