DEJAN DAVCEVSKI: “Be You”

When you hear someone say ‘just be yourself’ you might want to throw up. I know I get really irritated by this watered down garbage of advice.

What does even ‘just be yourself’ mean? You want to be successful, how does ‘just be yourself’ can help you? What does it really mean? For most people nothing, it’s cliche.

But as with most cliches, when you get the real meaning behind this overused advice, it’s probably the best advice anyone can give you.

What does ‘Be Yourself’ really mean?

It means to drop all attachments you have to certain personality, to certain characters, to certain traits and ideas you need to identify yourself.

It means to drop all labels you put on yourself!

Just be yourself, the thing most people say as a biased reaction, means to stop caring who you are and let this responsibility to others.

It means to stop trying to define yourself!

You don’t need definition. You are a constant process of becoming. And these labels and definitions just limit your potential. Be yourself means to let go of these limits.

It means to free yourself to become who you were meant to be!

By not having limits and definitions you continue your unfolding and becoming into the truest version of yourself!

You don’t depend on any of the world’s molds that other people created with their uniqueness.

Being yourself, you become unique, irreplaceable, your own archetype!

We try to control and customize how other people perceive us, we edit and cut parts of ourselves to fit the idea we have for ourselves, the mold.

But you have no idea who you can become!

You cannot possibly imagine your true potential!

You cannot possibly know your uniqueness!

Controlling how other people perceive you, creating and editing your character to fit into a mold, that’s not your business.

Let other people perceive you as they perceive you. Don’t try to fit into any mold, instead, strive to create your own mold.

So stop controlling, your business is nothing more and nothing less but to be you!

You don’t have to design your character, you don’t have to identify with the work you do, you don’t have to label yourself with your passions.

Stop trying to define yourself. Stop trying to find yourself. Instead, strive to be yourself most of the time.

Just let yourself be who you are without a care!

Be yourself unconditionally!

GUSTAVO CASTANER: “Soul Mate, Twin Flame… Who Cares?”

soul-mate-twin-flame-who-cares

Imagine if you had never heard of labels like ‘soul mate’, ‘twin flame’ or ‘spiritual’, what would you look for in a relationship?  What values, qualities, principles and characteristics would your ideal partner have?”

~Gustavo Castaner

 

Quite often I get emails from people asking me how to manifest or attract their soul mate or twin flame.  Students will have sessions with me so that I can assist them fulfill this intent.  And even though I believe in soul mates and twin flames, the reality is these are still labels.  Labels that will often work against people when it comes to manifesting the best relationship they could ever have.  So the first thing I tell people who desire to manifest their soul mate is to drop this label, because when it comes to the equation of manifesting the relationship that is for their highest good, the label soul mate or twin flame is not really that important.  Think about it, if you could be with a man or woman that loves you, adores you, respects you, supports you, makes you feel safe, inspires passion within you, you are attracted/magnetized to his/her presence, you share many interests and you are happy with… would it really matter if he/she was your soul mate or twin flame?

I resonate with the idea that we all have various soul mates but not all are the romantic relationship type.  But even those soul mates that belong to the romantic relationship category are not always the best relationship for you.  I have witnessed people stay in unhealthy, dramatic and co-dependent relationships only because they believe the other person is their soul mate. Imagine if you had never heard of labels like “soul mate”, “twin flame” or “spiritual”, what would you look for in a relationship?  What values, qualities, principles and characteristics would your ideal partner have?  Would it be easier to determine what person is best for you if you did not have to answer the question “is he/she my soul mate”?

I have seen people fall in love with soul mates who live on the other side of the world and they end up having a distant relationship that most of the time turns out not working at all.  Would you prefer to meet your soul mate who lives on the other side of the world or have a loving partner who is by your side?  Then there are a few people who believe that their soul mate or twin flame currently is stationed in another dimension (often the 5th) and they state this is the reason why they are single.  This could be very well true, yet why would you limit yourself to not have a relationship here and now in the 3D?  Relationships are one of the greatest blessings and gifts we have to love, grow, learn, share and evolve.  I am sure that if your soul mate or twin flame is indeed waiting for you in another dimension he or she wouldn’t mind if you enjoyed having a relationship here and now.

It is my belief that I have met and been in a relationship with two different soul mates whom I later realized were not the best relationships for me in terms of life partnership yet still necessary ones for my own learning, healing and evolutionary process.  Today I’m engaged to my beloved Jenniffer, is she my soul mate or twin flame?  Who cares… she is the woman I love with all my heart and she is my life partner, our commitment to each other is very strong, we are happy together and have absolute certainty that we will stay together.  That is all that really matters.

The term soul mate, twin flame or spiritual are not determining factors when we have an argument or face a life challenge, rather it is the love we have towards each other beyond any labels and the tools and resources we have and can apply to learn, grow, heal and evolve that really make a difference in our relationship.  So if you haven’t met your soul mate or you are not sure if the person you are in a relationship with right now is your soul mate, who cares?!  Focus on attracting and manifesting the relationship that will offer you the greatest opportunities to love, be happy, share life’s blessings, learn, grow, contribute, connect, feel safe, feel unique and evolve.

STEPHANIE LUCAS: “On the Path to Enlightenment: A Spiritual Journey to Happiness”

Header-21A-700x325 (5).jpg

Did you ever want to be an astronaut when you were growing up? I certainly did, and while it may appear that I am a mere storyteller, researcher, and writer for purveyors of living clay and healing crystals and stones — I AM AN ASTRONAUT — of sorts, anyway. My spirit feels free to travel within the cosmos every single day…without boarding a space shuttle or having multiple science degrees, exploring the Universe is possible for many through deep states of meditation and particularly those that take me down the path of enlightenment.

 

“There are particular types of seeds that remain dormant until they are broken open by a forest fire. Likewise, there is a seed within you that opens by the fire of your readiness to transform. Challenges are the great awakeners, and we welcome them we ignite inner fire of transformation and invite a greater vision for our life to emerge from within us.”

~The Lift Off Life, Michael Bernard Beckwith

Why am I So Darned Happy Most of the Time??

Seems this is a very common question/comment in my world these days. Don’t get me wrong… I certainly have not always been a little beaming ray of love and light, and I still have moments of drama filled confusions… and without a doubt, I was about as far off the path to enlightenment as the Universe would let me get – at least while allowing this physical body remain in this realm.

Prior to finding the path to enlightenment, no sense of presence or sense of self existed here — there was no Stephanie — that essence was simply a low-vibrational spirit/energy housed in a human shell. Trolling through life day after day, smiling when appropriate, being responsible, merely doing and thinking as I was told and taught — but never truly knowing the joy and happiness that accompanies the unconditional acceptance and love for myself, others and the awareness of the Higher Self.

While everyone’s journey will have exciting twists, forcing them to scamper about, questioning everything they thought they knew… here’s how the path to enlightenment and higher states of consciousness came about for this very reluctant-to-believe lady.

The Great Epiphany Before the Mind Quiets

The first epiphany in my journey was the startling insight that I had been merely swapping realities at my convenience… and wearing two masks. The kind you change like a chameleon at will or even sheer necessity. This clarity of this was profound, yet the realization simultaneously existed that I must have already KNOWN this was a part of my journey — 20 years ago — as the Comedy Tragedy Masks are so proudly applied to my as-ankle .as the Comedy Tragedy tattoo was being permanently penned onto my ankle 20 years ago…

The reality I was living in then (and had been forever in this realm) never felt right or like the truth. Politics, religion, education — everything that I had been taught or had ever placed a judgment on had always played a role in defining which mask I wore daily — or even minute by minute. By acknowledging that I was simply playing a recurring role on a set of actors continually running lines, sets me free of false illusions, forced me to quiet my mind in preparation for discovering actual truths. In other words, I understood that at that point I had to forget everything I ever knew — or believed to be true.

Whatever your magic and/are moments are, they’re likely to reveal some type of mind-bending, life-altering realization — universal truths that you haven’t seen (or haven’t been willing to) until that exact moment in time. You’re apt to have many small epiphanies before having the Big One, which is the state of enlightenment after the entire paradigm has burst… that moment when you wholly understand the very nature of the world.

The Quiet Mind is Kind, Compassionate, Humble, and Ego-Free

The peace and sense of tranquility that accompanies these epiphanies quiets the mind as you accept these truths, and begin to see yourself and the world beyond mere words or labels that have been placed upon ‘things and actions’ by external sources. The quiet mind begins peeling back these illusions and false concepts of right, wrong, good, bad, etc. while uncovering some deep down universal truths.

Many individuals unwillingly and unknowingly overestimate their self-importance, falsely believing that they somehow cause or solutions to problems in their life or in the world. Well, when you understand that everything in the universe is energy, you can then understand that the world is created of and orchestrated by frequencies that go beyond mere words and actions that belong to any one being. You can then see that you as ONE alone are not an essential component of either ‘problems’ nor responsible for ‘finding solutions;’ rather, you are likely to discover that those desire when manifested on a collective lever are all encompassing towards those intentions.

This is where the magic begins! With the hypnotic effect of false beliefs out of the picture, one can begin see an entirely different world — one that is orchestrated by a conscious intelligence far beyond words. With these insights, the transgression into seeing beyond the self naturally flows. The whole point of dropping these initial opinions is to allow you LOSE YOURSELF and the EGO… and you truly love and embrace the Unity of All Things. However, most at this state are now free to move about the cosmos more readily and begin embracing your powers of manifesting your own reality.

Losing Your Ego and Waking Up to a ‘Loving Reality’ is Beautiful

With no more dominating judgments, expectations, and sense of self-importance, many feel an immediate sense of happiness, lightness, and freedom. Love in all things is readily apparent, you are naturally happy, and you see the equality if all — the all one or none of beings and mother nature working and vibrating in harmony. Your world of duality may come to an end as the conscious and subconscious work in concert and that becomes your normal state naturally.

It takes many young souls such as myself a while to get here, while some truly enlightened spirits seem to master ascension and oneness with the Higher Self with less time and effort. However, you should always accept where you are on your journey — leaving beyond the distorted concepts of what ‘progression’ is in the old ‘logical, knowns’ that you released and know that you are well on your way.

Remember, No Judgments, No Labels, No Expectations — It is What it Is

Certainly, my path has many more levels to go, so I can only attest to my success, my path to enlightenment so far is wondrous, my experience… however, with a few excellent guides, higher vibrations, and solid intentions, the path I’m on has taken me a great distance.
