Emotional dampeners, are they useful?

Have you ever heard of emotional dampeners? Maybe, maybe not. Guess what, we all have them, some people use them more than others.

So what are emotional dampeners?

They are emotional states that dampen our ability to recognize what spiritual guidance we are being given.

We are always being guided on our journey throughout life. When we are in a good and positive state we recognize the messages, intuitive choices and markers along our path.

When we experience a helpless emotional state, we will still receive messages and markers on our path, but our ability to recognise them and intuitively choose our path becomes dampened.

Why am I telling you this is, because even in the darkest hours we are supported, whether we consciously know it or not. LIghted pathKnow that as the light begins to shine in your life you will recognize that the path is being lit just for you.

Can you walk a path that is not there?

Sometimes on the journey of our lives, you may walk a path that has not been walked before.

Forge your own path

When you forge your own path, you decide where to go and you take those steps.

This is scary because the tried and tested path is easier.

Tried and tested path

Are you brave? Are you brave enough to take the plunge?

Are you brave?

When you forge your own path, you need to be brave and you must trust yourself.

But you may find you doubt yourself. You may find you are full of fear.

This path is rewarding.  You will achieve so much more and be so much more satisfied than you could every realise. When you forge your own path it could be as simple as:

  • Making your own clothes.
  • Living your life, not as your parent have done.
  • Working overseas.
  • Not knowing the outcome of what you are trying to achieve
  • Leaving your stable job

Be brave, forge your own path and you wont be disappointed if you do.

Why do you throw up when you are in your power?

Imagine this, every time you stepped into your personal power, there you are, pulling your hair back and throwing up in inappropriate places and times!

How is this being in your power?

Lost in life

At times on this personal spiritual journey we can get lost, because there isn’t a road map.  No one gave you clear instructions on what to do and where to go.

So what you do you need to know?  The answers to these questions will help:

  • What are we here to do?
  • How will you know if you are on the right path?
  • How will you know when you get there?

We find out what we are here to do, when we begin to realise what makes us happy and brings joy to our lives.   Then, everything flows around us when we are doing it.  We each have a spiritual purpose, a reason why we are here.  That spiritual purpose will bring us great joy.

Joy and happiness

As you begin to open spiritually, your energy changes in your body.   You let go of the negative self talk, people that you don’t resonate with anymore leave your life and you begin to choose what is right for you. That can be daunting because the things that are right for you now, were never right for you in the past!!!  It can be confusing.

Then along the path one day, without you even realising, you truly step in your power, the what and why you are here.  You may not have done anything differently than normal, but you are different, you feel different, you act differently, you think differently and there is a pure flow of energy about you.

Personal power

This is the point where an old small part of you, can become overwhelmed and says “get out”.  That small part of you tries to purge the powerful you.  In some cases this really does happen and you do throw up!

Excitingly, although it doesn’t feel like it at the time,  this is the point where you are truly you.  This is what you are meant to be doing, thinking and feeling.

Ask the part of you that is trying to purge the rest of you, what is it trying to protect? It might be because it was scared, it didn’t want you to get hurt or it wanted you to be just like everyone else.    Reconcile with that aspect of you that is fighting this and be who you are?

People used to ask you when you were young – “What do you want to be when you grow up?”

Be who you are

You, should have been the answer!

Enjoy the journey Tracy xx

There’s are bear in there.

Is there a bear in there and a bear in you?

There’s a bear in there

There are periods of our lives where we enter a cave and we go into the dark.

Pondering your life

It is a place of introspection, a place where we ponder our lives and look at what we are here to do.

Western society tells us we should be, getting going in our lives, moving on, achieving something and being successful.

Tribal cultures tell us that there are times we need to be like the bear.  Hibernate for the winter, nurture ourselves and restore ourselves.

Many people enter a time of hibernation, but they fight it and back out.  They might say ‘it is not what they should be doing’.  So they push on with their lives.  The push through depression, feeling lost, alone and unsatisfied.

Follow your instincts

I suggest we recognize the “bear” times in our lives and be okay with being in the cave.  It is restorative time.  A time to cleanse, to nurture, to be with yourself and your thoughts.

Wisdom within

In the darkness you will become a new you, a you that does not even look like you.

Wisdom within

In the darkness you will find yourself and your inner wisdom.

Just coming out of the cave, love Tracy xx

Are you a risk taker in your life?

With a title like “are you a risk taker in your life” sounds like, you jump out of planes,  you gamble on stocks, shares or even the horses, or you do things on a whim.

Risk taking means different things to different people.  For some people, taking risks might mean, meeting and dating someone on-line.   For another, risk taking might be, rock climbing with no ropes at Mt Arapiles.

Sometimes we are heading along in our lives, like taking a canoe trip down a river.   Early on the river doesn’t have a lot of flow about it, then the river begins to move faster, it may even become rapids and next minute you are heading towards the waterfall in your canoe.

Your level of risk has just increased and there is a point – the point of no return, where the only place to go is forward in the flow.

At this point in your life you are facing your risks.  For me it is where I face my fears and my regrets.  I say things like, I shouldn’t have done that, wished I had never come.  It is like I am sitting in the canoe on the edge of the waterfall with my hands gripping the sides of the river bank, as I fight against the flow of my life.

For anyone on the banks of the river looking at me, I would look pretty silly.  But to me, it makes perfect sense.  When I fight my fears and regrets, it manifests in me, by making me get sick or have a headache etc.

I need to turn the risk – my fears and regrets, into a journey of trust and love in myself.

You know when you have gone over the waterfall of life, there is a serenity and peace awaiting you at the bottom.

So take every stroke in your life with love and trust and enjoy the journey.
