ARE YOU A SPIRITUAL WARRIOR
OR A METAPHYSICAL WIMP?
We came from distant galaxies on a grand mission
- to usher Planet Earth and all her inhabitants into the New
Age. We held a beautiful vision of a golden age of love and
light, where all beings from ants, to rocks, to humans, to lobsters
would be honored for their gifts and for who they are.
We are, each of us, cocky rebels and rabel
rousers. We actually thought it would be fun. Can you believe
that? Deep inside we are each a bit like Han Solo from Star
Wars. We like to do things our own way. We hate joining anything
and taking orders, advice, or instructions from others. And
we are also like the Three Musketeers. We actually enjoy the
fight and it never occurred to us that we wouldn't win.
So what happened?
Well we were born. We became a tiny infant
completely dependent on human parents, who basically had no
clue. And we inherited their limiting beliefs and fears and
then we took on a pile of our own. Life reflected back to us
people and situations that proved to us that our beliefs were
correct and we became depressed, co-dependent, addicted, obsessed,
ill, obese, and our self esteem spiraled ever downward.
We learned that happiness and getting our way
required that we conform to the desires of those around us.
We had to "behave." We had to "be good."
We had to get certain marks in school. We had to be polite.
We had to do well in sports. We had to do a million things.
In school we had to learn the answers the teachers
wanted to hear - even if what was being taught was completely
If we asked questions that challenged societies
beliefs, we were told to stop making trouble. If we questioned
things being taught to us by our parents or through whatever
religion we were born into, we were silenced. Heaven forbid
if we shared that we could see angels, could astral project,
or heard voices. That nonsense would absolutely not be tolerated.
We shut down our curiosity, our genius, our connection to Spirit,
and our joy. It was safer.
Then we became adults with the same depression,
co-dependency, addictions, obsessions, illnesses, obesity, and
our self esteem had not improved.
We went to college and chased after what our
parents, society, the magazines and television said was the
ultimate dream - an attractive partner/mate, a powerful career,
a home, a fancy car, the right friends, the best vacations.
Even if we managed to attain all that, we still felt empty and
shallow. We still weren't happy.
Finally one day something happened that was
so awful we thought our entire world had been shattered. And
it had. We were hit by the metaphysical two by four up side
the head. Our soul was shouting: "Wake Up!"
So slowly and painfully we woke up to the fact
that we were spiritual beings having a human experience and
that most of what we believed was rubbish. We began seeking
answers from books, friends, teachers, gurus, workshops, religions,
massage, yoga, Reiki, and on and on. We did a million therapies
and tried too many techniques to count, in order to unlearn
everything that previously had been so important. We became
workshop, book, psychic reading junkies. Unfortunately, many
of us simply replaced the old junk with new junk and didn't
really improve our lifes or our level of happiness at all.
Some of us were actually tenacious enough to
actually accomplish deep healing. We grew. We evolved. We began
to understand how manifesting in this dimension really works.
We learned how to observe our life as we participated in it.
We remembered that seeking happiness was important.
And then we got caught up in what we believed
was the appropriate way to behave as spiritual people. We started
shutting down our truth just as we did as children. We began
to observe much more than we participated. We became loving
and sweet and just allowed whatever happen to gently roll off
our back. We dropped out of society and only spent time with
the one or two friends that we could find of "like mind."
We WIMPED OUT.
I didn't come here to be a nice girl, look
pretty, and simply enjoy the sunset over the Jemez Mountains
every day. (It is quite lovely, however)
I came here to ROCK this place. Bust up the
bull. Wake up the folks. Move this sucker (the earth) into the
I came here to completely throw off the shackles
binding me to mediocrity and help as many people as possible
do the same.
I'm no longer willing to NOT say or write something,
just because I don't want to offend anyone. I'm no longer sitting
on the side lines saying that whatever is happening in Washington,
in Iraq, or anywhere else, doesn't involve me directly so I'll
just pretend it isn't happening, manifest my own beautiful little
reality, and ignore and allow whatever else is going on. No,
Ah, but now I'm coming from a much different
place - a healed place. I'm not an angry activist blaming others
for all the problems in the world. I know that I am responsible
for what is happening in my world and now I'm ready to change
it on a bigger scale. I can see my life and world events from
a much higher perspective. I am not reacting or being run by
negative emotion. I am in a calm, clear, wonderful place and
I've decided to stand up for what I believe is in the highest
and best interest of all humanity and this planet.
I'm back in the world game.
How about you?
