October 28, 2011 and the Mayan Calendar

Today is Friday, October 28, 2011. According to Carl Calleman we are at the end of the Ninth Wave of the Mayan calendar.

What does that mean? Well, I really don’t know. We are moving from separation into unity consciousness. We are moving from “me-me-me” to “us” thinking and living.

We humans have continually raped the planet for our own needs and greeds. We want more money, more status, more and better cars and houses and too much food. We are getting sicker physically, mentally and spiritually.

We are becoming more separated. The economy is very unstable. People are out of work and can’t find work in the traditional sense. College graduates can’t find work. Companies that would have snapped them up are simply not hiring. People in their 50’s are out of work. It is their most productive years just before retirement… no work.

Health care. USA has the most expensive health care in the world. In 2000, we ranged 37th in the world for health as a nation. Natural means for attaining good food and health are continually under fire by the government, Monsanto and pharmaceutical companies. They do not care about yours and my well being. They care about making money.

The planet has no more to give to us. Government and big business can not longer ride on the backs of the people. Things will need to be different.

It does not have to be a horrible change. It might be. It probably will be. But it doesn’t have to be.

Look at your own life. Where are you out of balance? What can you do to bring back balance to your life? What can you give back to the community? Do you need a flood or other disaster to get out and meet your neighbors?

Look at buying local food and services. Consider using less and living more. How about a conversation in the living room rather than texting. Face to face is always good.

Be open. Be alert. Look for ways to be “us” and inclusive. Forgive everything. Love everything.

Blessings as we begin the unity wave. Mary Pat

Job Loss and The Victim Trap

You have lost your job and there seems to be nothing on the horizon. Are you into the “woe is me” and “my life is ruined” thinking?

Last August 2009, my husband was released from a profession job. We had moved to the area 16 months earlier for this job. It is devastating at any age and particularly when it occurs in the mid 50 age. As the wife of the recently unemployed, I am also very stressed. I have my own professional dreams and goals and I think they may be going down the drain.

I was talking to a professional colleague. I was in the negative self talk. “My husband doesn’t have a job, woe is me”. She called me on it and rightly so.

My friend is right. What we think about and talk about is what we get. It is the Law of Attraction.

Most of the time I do pretty well. I realize that my husband and I have been carried. Don’t know how, but we have. Sometimes I get so discouraged. I feel like I have been standing on shifting sands for a long time.

My friend got me to thinking. When we feel good about ourselves we are connected to Source (Divine or God and Mother Earth). We get our spiritual energy for God, if you will . It comes from above our head down into our heart. Our physical body draws energy from the center of the earth up into our hearts. In those times we feel good about ourselves, we have a continual ‘source’ of energy from above and below.

When we get scared, we un-ground and break our connection with Source. There is no longer a ‘source’ of energy. As people, we have learned that it can be easier to take “your” energy than reconnect ourselves. Negative thinking, emotions and self talk is a way of creating a cord that attaches to someone else’s energy field. In that moment we (I) become a “vampire” stealing energy. Oh, what a thought that I could steal energy.

We as a people are so enmeshed in the “system” that we forget that we are 100% responsible for our lives. When the “system” spits us out, we get confused. We forget that we are responsible for self. It is easy to slip into “woe is me” and victim thinking.

There are moments that life sucks. The less time we spend in “life sucks” the better. When we have a setback, it is an opportunity to rethink our goals and reprioritize our lives. It is also an opportunity to trim the fat, so to speak. My husband and I are cleaning house. We are getting rid of a lot of things that no longer serve us. It is interesting to watch each other’s process. Each of us is going through the grieving process. We are never in the same spot at the same time.

The house is on the market. We have a back up plans A, B, and “seat of our pants”. The thing to remember is that every negative thought moves us closer to ruin and the “poor house.” Every positive thought and comment moves us closer to the next fabulous opportunity and new life.

Think positive. Dream positive. Then figure out the steps that will lead you to your knew dream.

Blessings, Mary Pat
