What does it mean to be courageous?
Many of us think of courage as something to be called on in emergencies or in dangerous situations, but for many people, it takes courage to do everyday things.
For some people, just getting out of bed takes all their courage; for others, it’s driving a car, going out on a date, or starting a new job.
But there is another kind of courage: our courage to face and overcome our own ignorance. What kind of warrior’s courage does it take to confront the ignorance that is causing us physical, mental, or emotional pain?
Courage really involves many ideas, and can affect all areas of our lives. If we are courageous in one area, this suggests we can be courageous in others, not just in the physical body, but also with our emotional, mental and spiritual states.
Emotional Courage = not buying into or being hooked by another person’s ego-trip (or by our own ego) into a situation based in emotional turmoil, such as defeatism, low self-esteem, the need (yours or someone else’s), to be right, to feel secure, to be in control, or gain approval in any way that we can.
Mental Courage = not allowing negative mental chatter to consume us, and refraining from replaying over and over in ours minds a situation that did not have the outcome we had hoped for.… Read the full article ···»

I read a lot on other new age blogs about how many lightworkers are feeling “disappointed” in the promised ascension, that things don’t appear different, and while I too hoped for a more dramatic increase in palpable light, i have come to trust that our collective pathway (which has been created already from our higher levels of wisdom in collaboration with our Teachers and Guides and Divine Parents) has been designed to be as gentle as we would allow, and timed perfectly for our individual wills, to choose the most sustainable pace. What fun would it be to be catapulted through our remaining resistance, and then feel ourselves being sucked back down to the level we can sustain??
We have come such a very long way in our lifetimes, my dear Brothers and Sisters! Let us be compassionate with ourselves and honor our own pace. Impatience is natural under the circumstances, and I feel it too, but when I feel into it, it feels like it is rooted in fear of not arriving in time, not being able to keep up with others, not be “qualified” to ascend. We share this on the human level, this tendency to worry that we won’t “make it”. The polarity to this worrying is “expectation” – perhaps we can soothe our fear of not ascending (missing the boat) with “hope”, with “expecting” everything to be SOON much better than it is now.
This is our creatorship at work, we have a fear, which is uncomfortable, so we project it into “making it better” in our minds. Since it is not a creation based in love, it does not truly help us manifest anything “better” or more full of light. When I feel into my love, my heart, I am reassured that we are progressing beautifully, and as we can allow more light into our knowing, more trust, we are ascending naturally. When i feel the need for reassurance, I find comfort in tuning in to the loving and positive words which are available from the higher realms.… Read the full article ···»
