FRACTAL ENLIGHTENMENT: “5 Signs You are Complicating Your Life”

Life is complicated. Relationships are complicated. Friendships are complicated. Life choices are complicated. Or are they? Is it possible that our excessive need to complicate life is just merely giving us something to do?

In our utter and complete fear of being bored are we perhaps overcomplicating every single thing in our life for the mere fact that it just gives us something to think about incessantly, or to complain about to our friends, or to distract ourselves from ourselves?

Could it be that our fragile little egos claim they want happiness, and inner peace, and simplicity from life situations but deep down are deathly afraid of this because in order to have true happiness and simple joy and uncomplicated relationships with others would mean the death of a majority of the jibber-jabber mind chatter that our ego spews out all day long?

Without over-thinking, worrying, complaining, and complicating everything to the point that we overanalyze every single situation the ego would lose 90% of its hold on us.

Our true self thrives in simplicity, in fact it is simplicity. It knows that anything outside of simplicity is merely our ego or false self begging for our attention.

As long as it has our attention we won’t pay attention to what is real and true… which is that we don’t need to spend so much time thinking about how we can go about achieving happiness. We already are happiness. We don’t need to spend all our time trying to get love from another person, we already are love.

As long as the ego can overcomplicate every situation to the point that we don’t see that all is well and perfect, it has already won. But the reality of the situation is, it doesn’t have to be this way.

As Confucius said, “Life is really simple, but we insist on making it complicated.”

Here are five ways you may be making your life more complicated than it needs to be:

1) You live in your head too much

Our minds are constantly trying to make sense of everything. They are going over every single “what if?”, “why did they do that?”, “what does this all mean?” so much so that they forget that all of life is happening in the present moment.

Literally only this present moment exists. So mulling over past conversations, or stressing about future events literally just drives us mad. We spend hours playing out scenarios in our head that have never happened and may or may not ever happen. We overthink everything that we are completely disconnected from what is real and the beauty of experiencing the present moment when it actually happens… in the present moment.

2) You want to make everyone happy all the time

Trying to please everyone might work every once in a while, but most of the time it will be an impossible feat. In order to please one person, it is inevitable that you will upset another person to some extent.

There will be times when everyone in your life is going to have their own opinion on how you should live yours, so trying to satisfy them all would be undoable. How about you just do what makes you happy?

Yes some people will have something to say, or may be disappointed, but this is your life right? Once people in your life catch on that you have made yourself your first priority, they will be less inclined to ask you to go out of your way just to please them.

Also, they won’t be so shocked when you tell them “no” instead of desperately trying to prevent them from being upset by just doing exactly what they tell you to.

3) You believe your perception of life is the absolute truth

Here’s a secret: Your perception does not equal truth, it only means just that… YOUR perception. So the cashier at the store isn’t necessarily a rude witch, just because you perceived her that way. Did it occur to you that maybe she is dealing with a problem in her personal life? And the girl/guy you went on a date with isn’t necessarily an insensitive jerk.

Maybe they’ve had a really difficult childhood and they don’t know how to open up to people very easily. Regardless of the situation, we must realize that there are always two sides to every coin.

When we stop convincing ourselves and others that we know exactly what is going on in other people’s heads and why they act the way they do, we stop wasting so much time judging, complaining and criticizing others.

We simply see things and people as they are, without imposing our own little story on them which may or may not be anywhere near the actual truth.

4) You don’t trust that there is a higher intelligence at work

Whether you call it the universe, or God, or Source, or the all that is, there is a force that is working behind the scenes in every single aspect of our lives. There is never a moment that we are separate from its presence because in all actuality we come from it, meaning we ARE it, just a tiny little slice of it.

Our feeble little minds can’t comprehend this, so because of that we try to make our own plans and agendas on how things in our life will go. News flash: things rarely go the way we thought they would, right?

This is because the higher intelligence knows what’s best for us, even though we are convinced we know. The higher intelligence sees a bigger picture, it knows the reason your car wouldn’t start today was because there was going to be huge collision on the highway right when you would have been driving on it.

Accept and surrender to whatever it brings to you or brings you to. It is always giving you exactly what you need in any given moment, your only assignment is to: TRUST

5) You’re not honest with yourself

This is a big one and actually a lot harder than it seems mainly because so many of us hide ourselves from ourselves so much that we don’t even know what the truth is anymore. Believe it or not a lot of people are comfortable in their misery. They have become so accustomed to it that the mere thought of not having something to be miserable about sounds like the scariest thing ever. So they fool themselves.
admire the simple beauty in life
They rationalize, justify, and make excuses of why they still need to work at the job that they feel sucks the soul out of them, or they need to continue to cling on to an addiction of whatever the object of their desire is.

As long as they can evade actually being honest with themselves, which 9 times out of 10 is that they are afraid, they can stay comfortably unhappy. This for some reason sounds better than simply admitting that whoever or whatever or wherever is never going to bring them any closer to the happiness they claim they want.

Life really doesn’t need to be hard. In fact, when we start to simplify it we realize that the simple life is where true joy and happiness actually lives. We take things and people at face value. We trust the process of life and don’t overanalyze everyone and everything. So, if you do anything, do this… keep it simple.

FRACTAL ENLIGHTENMENT: “Spontaneity — Why It’s Better Than Having A Plan”

“We must be willing to let go of the life we have planned so as to have the life that is waiting for us.”

~Joseph Campbell

 

Be born, go to school, get a job, get married, have kids, have grandkids, get old, die. That’s the plan right? Well, so we think. Unfortunately so many get stuck in this cookie cutter idea of what life is supposed to look like, only to live in constant frustration and disappointment that their life looks nothing like the standardized version.

Life may drift them more and more off course, and they keep trying to control the helm by bringing it back to the life they think they should have, like the characters on TV.

Unfortunately much of their life is spent in the struggle trying to get back “on course”, or what they believe is “on course.” So much time is wasted in this struggle to no avail.

Only when a person just gives up, surrenders to the tides of their life are they able to see that their idea of how things were SUPPOSED to go was causing them a constant frustration because they were never actually enjoying anything about the present moment, or the way things WERE going.

Who says things have to go exactly like that? If things aren’t going exactly like the social norm does that means that things have gone “wrong”?

The fun and adventure lies in the spontaneity, in the suspense, in the uncertainty. Of course it’s fun to have goals and aspirations, things that we envision ourselves doing and ways that we can offer our gifts and talents to the world, but in order to become more open to possibilities and opportunities that are awaiting us, ones that we never expected were possible, the most important thing we need to do is stop planning our futures so rigidly. quote-life

We must allow ourselves to relinquish the need to have absolute control over every single situation, small or big. We must let something else take over, something that knows way more than we do….

“When I finally learned to let go of having to totally control everything around me and let my life unfold, I was stunned by the results. How could I have ever thought I could outsmart the Universe?”  

~Geri Larkin

 

The problem with trying to control how every situation will go is that we cannot always see the bigger picture in every situation. We have no idea why we didn’t get the job we applied for, or why our partner decided to leave us, or why the car wouldn’t start on our way to work.

All the ego knows is that this situation was “bad”, we experienced some sense of sadness or pain, and because it does not desire to feel uncertain, or pain, sadness or vulnerability ever again, it must plan. It must control how everything in the future will go, so as to never feel out of control or open to chance ever again.

However, so much of our life is dependent upon things that we cannot control completely. The weather, traffic, how other people behave, whether or not we get the big promotion, who we meet and how we meet them, are all things that we cannot control 100% of the time.

But the question is, why would we want to? Having total control over every single situation is not only an exhausting endeavor for us but is also a stifling experience for the people in our lives. The result of this fear of losing control is that we limit the universe in being able to direct us to paths that we may not have ever thought of on our own.

As soon as an opportunity or possibility is presented to us that doesn’t fit into our box, or rather our plan of what our life is supposed to look like, we turn away from it and label it “bad idea”… bad idea because it’s not what we think life is supposed to look like.

But if we look at our life from a broader view, from the big picture perspective, and openly accept the fact that we didn’t get the job, or we were dumped by our partner, or our car breaking down made us late for an appointment, we may in fact realize a better job opening was coming along, a new healthier relationship was just around the corner, or our car breaking down prevented us from being involved in a huge accident on the highway.

So just because a situation is not what we WANTED to happen, or what we planned on happening does not necessarily mean that it was bad.

We can look at life in two different ways, one is that things don’t go as planned and that’s a bad thing, or we can look at it as if we live in a universe that always conspires for our greater good, so when something goes “wrong” or unplanned, we trust that it was for our greater good, always, even if we never see exactly why. The first option leaves us in constant resistance, and angry, bitter and stressed out constantly… and the second one leaves us grateful, accepting, and excited everyday about what that day may bring.

“At times the world may seem an unfriendly and sinister place, but believe that there is much more good in it than bad. All you have to do is look hard enough. And what might seem to be a series of unfortunate events may in fact be the first steps of a journey”  

~Lemony Snicket

 

If we envision anything for our future selves it should be that we are the best version of ourselves possible. We are healthy, and happy and doing something that we love to do and surrounded by people that love us. If we make the main focus health and happiness we leave ourselves open to all the many paths and roads and trails that one might take to achieve these goals, instead of getting too attached to exactly how we think life should happen.

Think of the universe like the navigational system in the car, we know the end destination (us being the best version of ourselves), but the HOW we get there is always up in the air.

We may take a million left turns, take the scenic route or we may take the shortest route possible, only to find a happier more fulfilling destination mid-way through. The one thing that we can depend on though is that the universe never lets us get completely off course.

There is never too many “wrong turns” that the intelligence of the universe cannot re-route us back to being on track to our final destination. In fact, there is no “wrong” turns at all, there are only routes that allowed us to enjoy the view a little longer and take things a little slower, or routes that got us to our destination very quickly. Either way, we realize the fun was in the unexpectedness of the adventure.

JENNIFER MOREAU: “What We Can Learn From The Original New Agers”

Keeping in mind the original “New Age” movement was a huge and quite successful psy-op… not all spiritually-oriented authors from past eras were shills for the cabal… 🙂

“I am feeling more in alignment with the New Age thinkers and information from 20 to 30 years ago and even before that. I feel they were authentically bringing forth information for the good of humanity and spiritual evolution. They weren’t trying to get followers (some were) or subscribers. They weren’t looking to be the next big thing, or a millionaire. We all need to use our discernment skills when seeking information.”

~Jennifer Moreau

 

Trust is from the heart

Charles Bukowski wrote about intelligent people being full of doubt and stupid people being so sure of themselves. I think we all contain a bit of both. The difference would be allowing and incorporating new information into your own personal story.

Osho said something that has always stuck in my mind when he said, “Belief is from the mind, and trust is from the heart. “Belief is a poor substitution for trust”.

As we begin to bring more things from the unconscious to the conscious, we open more of our inner knowing. Our inner knowing or our truth is continually changing as we evolve. Sometimes it happens quite quickly… you may not be same person as when you got up this morning or even 5 minutes ago before you contemplated some new theory. Sometimes it may take a bit of time to have that ah-ha moment that breaks us through to a new perspective. It just might take 3 people explaining the same thing in different ways but you all of a sudden get it. I remember taking a behavior modification course for a whole semester in College (I did get a B) and it wasn’t till I heard a 20 min lecture on the subject in University and the 4 months just clicked in my head… Ah-ha!

I have been thinking a lot about the resources for spiritual growth I found when I began researching. I went through my “bookmarks” and I have found that the links to a lot of the websites no longer exist. A friend of mine recently said to me that the ancient knowledge still holds true today. Which I agree. Ancient texts still do contain a road map for spiritual evolution.

I am feeling more in alignment with the New Age thinkers and information from 20 to 30 years ago and even before that. I feel they were authentically bringing forth information for the good of humanity and spiritual evolution. They weren’t trying to get followers (some were) or subscribers. They weren’t looking to be the next big thing, or a millionaire. We all need to use our discernment skills when seeking information.

Discernment comes from trust, from the soul, from how it feels. If something doesn’t quite feel right, then it probably isn’t. But, if the information comes into your awareness down your path again then it might be worth taking another look. Maybe, just maybe it needs more attention… maybe from another source, maybe the explanation will be different or you may read the same thing again and this time you get it. Doesn’t matter what “it” is. Always be open to seeing things from a different level of understanding. Some things may require an understanding of some other things before the ah-ha moment.

Maybe the world is ready to hear what you have to say in your own unique and authentic way. Maybe your own unique and authentic expression has not found it’s way to the surface yet. Trust me when I say there are folks out here that are all doing their best from their own level of understanding. There are just as many levels of understanding as there are perspectives and you just never know who may need your kind of authentic from the heart explaining.

I send this out from my heart and I am grateful to all those who show up to support me. Thank you.

NEZEL PADAYHAG: “5 Ways High Vibrational Energy Affects Humanity And 5 Ways How To Align With It”

Humanity is coming closer together than ever in our history. We are raising the level of vibration of humanity as a whole and these higher vibrational energies will affect humanity.

These energies affect all of us and it’s best if we embrace them. By letting them flow freely we will awaken to our own truth and become a part of this global change as well.

As we awaken we will become conscious of our inner wounds and our shadow self. The emergence of the shadow self may not be pleasant but it’s crucial for the shift to take place. It’s how we heal on a deeper level and transcend past trauma.

As humanity raises its vibration a couple of effects will be felt around the world.

5 Ways High Vibrational Energy Affects Humanity

1. Growing communities that take action to save the environment.

Humanity has come to unite in defending ourselves from toxins that bring poison to the air we breathe and the food we eat.

We rise up to save our planet against impending calamities brought by human activities.

More and more people wake up to realize the harm our actions do to the environment and actively choose better ways of living that are in harmony with Nature.

Communities and individuals take drastic action to save the planet and promote alternative ways of using energy. Some even invent brilliant new ways to gather and manage energy.

More people realize that it’s only by coming together and standing for Nature that we’re able to protect ourselves, the environment, and every living creature in the planet.

2. Bigger and faster connection between people.

As our consciousness raises to higher levels, we are naturally led to others who are also walking on the same path of consciousness.

Better opportunities show up to connect our minds all across the world, increase the sharing of our ideas and make information available to all.

We come to connect and support each other as if our encounters are meant to be.

3. Awakening to your purpose.

Because we become highly conscious of our inner selves, we make deeper connections with our soul. We discover more about our passions and interests.

Our passions and interests bring us closer to our purpose. It’s in following our passions that we reveal to ourselves what we are supposed to do in the here and now.

Our path is not found outside, it’s within us. We understand this even better as we awaken to our purpose. We face our shadows to unleash the powerful surge of energy necessary to fulfill our missions in life that are projected through our purpose.

4. Expansion and promotion of healthy lifestyles.

As we raise our vibration we start to sense that we need better and healthier ways of living. That’s why there is a massive expansion of healthy programs and diets being promoted on every corner. The world seems to become obsessed with healthy lifestyles.

This is because a healthy lifestyle gives the additional energy we need to raise our own energy to the same level other positive individuals seem to vibrate on. In order to raise our own vibration we need to integrate a healthy diet, habits and environment around us.

Trends like meditation, yoga, veganism, exercising and alternative ways of healing are being accepted as the norm in many human societies. In a stress filled world people turn more to stress releasing techniques and lifestyles that enhance relaxation.

5. Innovation of technologies that help in raising human consciousness.

The bigger and faster connection between people from all around the world enables for ideas to clash and merge creating new innovations that we could not imagine by our own.

These new technologies will serve as outlets for humans to further grow their consciousness and evolve in better species.

The high energy of humanity creates a big demand for platforms where humans can awaken and grow their consciousness.

If you feel you are not aligned with the higher vibration of humanity, don’t worry, there are ways you can come into alignment with these higher vibrations.

5 Ways How To Align With High Vibrational Energy:

1. Find out the things that make you happy and ignites your interest.

These are the things or activities that bring you the most joy and fire up your interest. Your passion lies in the connection between this two.

2. Test your passion.

Once you find a passion of yours, test it. Explore all the possibilities and options around it before you go for it. Each of your passions is a guide that leads you closer to your purpose.

3. Face your fears and limitations.

These fears and limitations prevent you from becoming the being you’re supposed to be. They are the obstacles that stand between you and your purpose. Recognize them because they hold your truth. Do not fight them, accept them. Face them. Then look beyond them.

4. Trust your gut.

Listen to your intuition and trust it more often. Its guidance will never fail you. Remember that your intuition is like a muscle and the more you trust it the more you train it.

5. Embrace the divine guidance.

Look at the synchronicities that keep happening to you. They serve as your guide in this journey. Ask why they happen. Try to see what they tell you and what you can learn.

Changing your reality may seem like a personal journey. But it’s only your part in helping the shift to take place. Remember, it’s a collective consciousness. You need to embrace your part. Once you tune in to your inner self you will connect to the flow of humanity’s evolution.

ALEXANDER PAPAGEORGHIOU: “The Secret to Creating in 5D — Releasing”

Throughout our lives so far, we have gotten used to living, or surviving, with fear as a mechanism to protect ourselves against the world, courtesy of our egos. As we enter and begin to settle in the Fifth Dimension, one of the hardest parts of the acclimatization process is learning to let go.

This has become overused as a term since we are often told by spiritual guides to let go, to breathe, but this time it is more complex, and more rewarding. We have gotten used to being on our own, throughout the Third Dimension construct, but there has to be an elementary change that must take place: TRUST. This time we have a partner that merges with us to be part of a mechanism we now call Conscious Creation: the Universe.

In order to create we need to make two elementary changes. We need to learn to trust in the Source completely and to believe in our ability to create. Then, we need to learn to let go of all the things we cannot control, on a complete basis, to the Universe so that it can deal with this obsolete energy and discard it. The longer we hold onto it, the more we meddle with the energy that is supposed to come down and replace it and we stall the process, making it difficult for ourselves to be in acceptance of the abundance of waves that flush our bodies and our reality in this tumultuous and rewarding time. We are not creating alone. We are visualizers, we anticipate and create the reality that we wish for. We must learn to believe in this ability and to have full faith that after we release it the Universe will do its part. This is a complete partnership that relies of both sides to fully create.

We need to erase the past view of ourselves as physical bodies at the mercy of the dense world. We are infinite light beings existing in infinite dimensions with a loving Counterpart watching over us and rewarding our release of the past and the archaic.

We can never create fully until we have accepted that we are creators and that we now have a symbiotic relationship with the UNIVERSE, which is the physical manifestation of the Creator. Secondly, we must accept that, as opposed to all the lifetimes when we have been swallowed by fear and anger, this time around, two constants have changed: We are AWAKE, and we are NOT ALONE: We are LOVED. That is the most powerful tool for creating and understanding that manifestation is not only willing things into being. We have to tear down all the blockages of the past, the desire to rush things, the anticipation, the fear that we will not get what we want, the meddling of the ego, etc…

For example, in the past, one may have tried to create and things weren’t moving, so they started meddling, trying to accelerate the process, fear started creeping in, and the ego started dictating that either this was not meant to be, or that the person had to take more action. All these actions we lead by FEAR of not accomplishing this. There was no TRUST, no LOVE, and no RELEASE. This process was stifled repeatedly until the person gave up and let it go. After some inner changes, the situation would pop later having taken form. Unfortunately, it took a toll on said person and the fear remained.

This really doesn’t have to take place this way anymore. This is the first time we are fully awake in millennia. We are creating, we are revealing our true selves to ourselves, and we MUST stop being afraid and start trusting, in the process, in our power, in LOVE, and in our GUIDANCE and the UNIVERSE.

Let go completely and let your light find you again and take you where it needs to. Whatever you are enduring, the last layers of pain, fear, anger, it is all for the best and you really should not fear anything anymore. The light is here and it has started shining within you. Trust yourself, the process, be patient and know that you loved more than you can fathom. That is your mantra in the difficult moments.

Love,

Alexander
