Remind Me Again - Spiritual Challenges

I just had this conversation with a friend of mine last week. This week I found an article on In 5D.com that so nailed my spiritual challenges for the year, I laughed out loud. The title of this article is "Remind Me Again, Why did I Incarnate to this Shithole?" And my question is "I am sorry, WHY did I sign up for this bullshit YET AGAIN? WHY?" While I don't want to sound like I am whining OR judging, if you have never been in this space, you may be a little more evolved then I am. So SHARE your knowledge! What are you waiting for? We all have our challenges, spiritual, financial, health, relationships all the day long. While I understand that HOW you deal with the challenges presented you, from a spiritual tip, it gets TIRED and is damn sure trying. Here's to US - the spiritually challenged and STILL being the Light Warriors we are! ROCK ON! Remind Me Again, Why did I Incarnate to this Sh*thole? by Gregg Prescott, M.S. www.in5d.com www.BodyMindSoulSpirit.com www.HolisticCancerResearch.com Did you ever wonder why you decided to incarnate to these lower vibrations of the third density? When we were back on the other side with Source, life seemed so easy. We had the answers to all universal questions and lived in the complete vibration of love. There was no dissension, hatred, ego, or financial concerns, just love. After many years of being in this vibration, you forgot what it was like to live in a 3rd dimensional vibration, yet you were fortunate enough to have been here in at least one other previous incarnation and you remembered how your spiritual progression was raised exponentially by being in a world full of duality. spiritual challenges You swore to yourself that this time, you would not allow the lower third dimensional vibrations to bring you down. You planned on bringing back the vibration of love with you to this planet, but your memories of being with Source were once again wiped from your immediate memories as the 3rd dimensional brainwashing began, yet again. From birth, you were indoctrinated into a system that promotes subservience, control and conformity. You always felt cognitive dissonance over this but weren’t sure why. It seemed like everybody else was conforming to this system and this is the way it is supposed to be. You attended school and sometimes caught yourself daydreaming as if your higher self was telling you, “A formal education is not what is important in life.” As a child, you were taught how to play sports and learned aggressive, self-serving behaviors that only reinforced the divide and conquer mentality that is forced upon us by our societal expectations. You were pacified with mundane television programs that not only took you further away from who truly are, but helped to influence what you thought, wore, ate, drank, etc.. As you grew older, you started to discover how corrupt this system has become on Earth, not only in your home country, but all over this planet. You begin to seek answers to questions that are not taught in school, such as “What is the origin of human existence?” and “Why are there so many opposing religions when there is only one Source?” You become trapped in a system that relies on monetary success in order to survive, making you an economic slave to the few that control the many. Unknowingly, you become part of that system. So, why did I decide to incarnate to this shithole? Every one of these situations gave you a chance to learn and grow spiritually. For a while, you simply forgot how these challenges would benefit you. You knew that at some point in this incarnation, you would awaken to find your true self along with your purpose for being here. It seemed so easy when you were on the other side with Source. You wanted to make millions of soul contracts because they all seemed so easy to achieve while you are in the presence of Source. Instead, you listened to Source and ended up making thousands of soul contracts, which all seemed achievable in this lifetime. Some of these soul contracts involved people who you would only meet for a brief minute, but somehow, they changed your life, or you changed theirs. They helped to lead you back to your path of enlightenment, or vice-versa. While you may never personally know these people, you were best friends with them when you were back with Source. Did you ever see someone for the first time and just know that you’ve known this person from somewhere? Chances are, you did know this person when you were back with Source. You also wanted to come back to be part of the Great Awakening. We are at a point in time where our planet is completing a 26,000 year cycle called the precession of the equinoxes. We are also at the end of a greater cycle in which our solar system has completed it revolution around its own sun in Sirius. You said to yourself, “There is no way I’m gonna miss out on this!” Besides, you forgot what it was like to experience duality and polarity. In the end, this shithole has been an amazing experienced filled with an abundance of opportunities for spiritual growth. If you decide to come back here in another incarnation, look for this article! Remember this: YOU are the light at the end of the tunnel!

High Ego or High Self Esteem?

Greetings! The difference between High Ego and High Self Esteem is that High Ego is at someone else’s expense. High Self Esteem is the ability to Soar and take others with you. ~ Debbie Mancini (thanks Debbie!) https://www.facebook.com/DEARMAMADEB I often wonder at the people who can only make themselves feel better if they are judging others. Some folks have elevated this to an art form. While it may be funny, know that person talks about you the exact same way. They have no moral compass so there would be nothing (like shame, humility or integrity) to remind them you are supposed to be their friend. Be aware that EGO, unchecked does in reality Edge GOD OUT! No matter how much they attend church, if their entire life revolves around them, what they did, what they want, what they need (usually from you) that is High EGO. High Self Esteem will allow you to tell this faux friend that you are no longer willing to put up with their bullshit. That what is good for them may not be what is right for you. Pay attention to people who ONLY call you when they want something. Pay ATTENTION if every single time you answer their call the conversation starts with “I was wondering?” or “Do you still have???” Every conversation revolves around their needs, their wants, and their desires. When that person cannot take a few minutes to ask you how you are, let alone LISTEN for your answer, feel free to show your own High Esteem and release that person from your life. They (by now) should have served their purpose. Figure out what it is and LET THAT GO! You have real things to achieve in this lifetime. No need to worry about those who don’t get it, who won’t understand. Many, including your dearest friends will not get it or a new and different you. However, your best friends will allow you the freedom to do and BE YOU! That is the best High Esteem, grounded in faith, love, generosity and grace. Do YOU! Be MORE! By:Michelle D. Smith

My Battle With Fred

My battle started before Fred had a name, just a pain, without a source in my jaw. Since I have been getting dental work done for the last 2 years, I just knew it could not be a cavity, let alone a tooth that needed pulling. battle It was not until the morning that I felt pain tap dancing on my face that I broke down and made an emergency dental appointment. As with all “emergency” appointments, I did not need to wait a few days. During that time, the pain subsided completely. Sucker move! I almost cancelled the appointment, but the memory of that pain wakening me forced my hand. While waiting for the x-ray, the thought of an extraction never crossed my mind. I mean, really, how could my dentist miss a tooth that could hurt like hell unless that tooth was already bad to the bone? My answer came a few minutes later. “Looks like your wisdom tooth needs to be pulled.” WTF, was my first thought. My wisdom tooth? The one that the dentist left in because it was giving me no trouble? One and the same. “Well, it is going to get worse, so you might as well have it removed. You are already here.” I braced myself for the 12” needle to “numb” my gum. Took 2 of those. Then the battle began. The first hour was horrific. So much pain that tears were streaming down my face. Battle! My heart was racing, I was hyperventilating and could not quite understand WHY I was in so much pain. Since my heart was racing, I was giving something other than Lidocaine – but who knows what it was. Thirty minutes after THAT, I was given more Lidocaine! It was a battle royale. Between the dentist and assistant – comparing notes on IF the tooth had moved, and the tears streaming down my face, I would say I was losing this fight. I breathed, prayed to GOD for help and asked my Angels to help me release this tooth that was as old as I am. Release, release, RELEASE DAMN IT! 2 minutes after the last shot of Lidocaine, the tooth moved, then came out. I asked to keep it. It is considered “medical waste” but hell, it was MY medical waste and after that battle, I think I needed to keep this sucker around to complete the RELEASING! I named the tooth Fred during my meditation Sunday. After I wrote down Fred, I saw the word FREED! Yes, Fred had given Freedom to all the pain and betrayal I have worked on releasing for most of last year. May seem a stretch to some of you, but since I was focused on releasing ALL the pain, ALL the betrayal, ALL the old, worn out and unneeded, FRED served his purpose well. It is the largest tooth I have ever seen with a curved root over an inch long and almost ½ inch wide. HUGE tooth! That same day, Sunday, the Certified Angel Card of the Day was – You guessed it! FREEDOM! Take your lessons as they come to you. They are personal and profound. Only YOU know the meanings of what is occurring in your life and you are the person to decipher it. Be blessed!
