In his allegory Plato describes a dimly lit cave in which a group of prisoners are chained to a wall, completely immobilized. The cave represents the sensory human mind. When we believe that knowledge is what we see, taste, touch, smell and feel, we are trapped in a cave of misunderstanding. We are the prisoners.
The prisoners know no other reality other than the wall in front of them which has projections of shadow images. Its appearance resembles puppetry, as the shadows are created by people walking on a walkway carrying things on their head. These images are actually cast by the light of a fire behind them. The shadows are our perceptions that have been created from our limited experiences. These shadows are in some way representative of what we believe to be truth. What we see, we believe is real and true, however, what we are seeing is merely a shadow of truth. Read the rest of this entry »
Have you ever heard of the term ‘monkey mind?’ It originates from ancient Chinese and Japanese Buddhist teachings. We all experience it from time to time. In contrast to thinking clearly, monkey mind feels restless, unsettled, unfocused and uncontrollable. We think too much about the next text message, passing an exam, being able to pay next month’s bills, and whatever else lies in our fear centers.
This state of mind can take over if not managed, resulting in high anxiety. We lose our ability to think or to connect with what lies beneath these runaway thoughts. Our thoughts adopt a distorted sense of reality; we act on them only to find that the other person has no idea what we are talking about. Read the rest of this entry »
A young Cherokee child gets into an argument with one of his peers whom, until now, he felt he had been on good terms with but on this occasion, however, felt that the other boy had been most unjust to him.
In anger, the Cherokee boy runs off to seek advice from his wise grandfather, an elder of the Cherokee tribe, who loves teaching his grandchildren all about life. After telling his grandfather of his injustice, the old man wistfully looked at his grandson and said that he too, in his life, had similar experiences that resulted in him feeling great anger. “It is like there is a fight between two wolves going on inside you,” said the old man, “and indeed a terrible fight.” Read the rest of this entry »
Allowing yourself to open up to more of who you are and who you came here to be in the earth space dimension, is in a beautiful transition. But many of you may have been feeling quite sluggish in recent months. This is to be expected as the old energy fights to hang on. Your collective consciousness is rising up, gaining momentum, growing stronger and allowing the shift to be seamless.
Breathe deeply as you move out of your 3rd dimension reality into the 5th dimension. Many of you have ascended into higher frequencies all the way up to the 12th dimension. You will find yourself moving in and out throughout your day, between and amongst these dimensions.
When your body moves back into the 3rd dimension it might feel like a crash or an explosion. Your body is simply adjusting and attuning to being able to function here on this earth plane within your spiritual body as the driving force of your life. Read the rest of this entry »
Natural Law is a term that is used for so many different descriptions and is actually ambiguous. It can be the law of nature; a philosophical law related to ethics and morality, or many other laws where rules are applied.
Greek philosophers, such as Socrates, Plato and Aristotle, specifically distinguished between the law of the land and the law of nature. The law of the land was specific to the cities, districts and government whereas the Law of Nature is the same everywhere.
In physics one might even say that the Law of Gravity is a Natural Law, as it exists everywhere on the planet and throughout time. Technology has advanced such that we are able to influence gravity, yet we have not changed the inherent Law of Gravity. Read the rest of this entry »
Cherish your time alone. It is important to take some time out for yourself to process emotions and energies. As a human on this Earth you are ever always experiencing the energies that are around you, whether it is your personal space or the consciousness of the ‘all.’
Focus on mastering the mind, for it is in your mind that you create your own reality and once you master your mind, you become the sole master of your life, instead of at the whim of the energies swirling outside of you.
The first step in mastering the mind is to constantly be present with yourself. It is easy to get caught up in the busy-ness of doing, moving from one action to the next exhausting yourself just thinking about all that needs to be done. But the reality is, there is nothing that needs to be done. There is only that which needs to be. Read the rest of this entry »
My life is running in reverse right now – or so it seems. My energy is low and it is affecting my health. I took the time to sit today and ask my guides, “What am I missing here? I have been doing what you asked, helping others, being there for those that need me and working towards my goals and my highest good. Why are these things hitting me right now to knock me down again?”
The answer I received was eye opening and so simple. “Sheri, it is time to clear the clutter, so you can move forward again.”
Clutter is one of those things that can hold us back, that can take us in reverse, or just put a wall up in front of us, so we don’t achieve our true higher potential. Read the rest of this entry »
Your energy is best spent this week focusing on rejuvenating yourself. For as you rediscover those things in your life that brought passion and joy, you will begin experiencing life as it were meant to be. Free of worry, fear and delusions that sabotage your best efforts.
Think about rebirth for a moment and all that it implies: wonder, curiosity, fresh starts, clean slate, innocence, freedom and so much more. Your life may have been riddled with unfortunate events, or experiences that have been less than desirable for you (on our end we see only opportunities for growth, but we shall not quibble with you here) but it is time now to dust yourself off.
