Fear: Real or Perceived

tumblr_mct5qiiZYX1r4ynvno1_500

I recently have observed behaviors in myself and others involving fear and wanted to share some insights.  Fear is created by our egos.  Fear can be helpful, such as when we are in real dangers. For example, we are about to be struck by a vehicle or our home is being burglarized. This fear will motive us to act to get help or protect our loved ones. There are also situation in our lives where we may need to take precautions and be street wise, such as when we are walking alone down a deserted street in a dangerous part of town. These are real fears.

There is another kind of fear that is perceived.  For instance, our fears are triggered by our past experienced of being hurt, or we perceive other’s motivation as trying to hurt us.  In other words, there are no facts in our present life to indicate that hurt is being inflicted on us, but our perceived fear of the “possibility” of being hurt.  This type of fear creates terrible anxiety and even depression if it remains with us for a prolonged period of time, potentially paralyzing our lives.  This is the type of fear that spiritual practice talks about that creates problems for our lives.

The key here is awareness and being able to distinguish the different between real and perceived fear, and not reacting to this fear when it is perceived.  I use “Observing Ego Practice” found at this tab on my Blogsite Homepage to help me figure out the difference.  Once you practice Observing Ego Practice regularly, you will be able to use this practice reflexively or instantaneously without going through each step, so you can make a judgement within seconds before reacting to the fear.  Hope this helps you, Brooke (Copyright 2014 Kundalini Spirit with All Rights Reserved)

 

Sisterhood

This sanctuary we know as sisterhood,

Embodies the mysterious sacred feminine.

A bond so beautiful and mystical,

We only understand it when felt,

On an unspoken, knowing dimension.

This love rests in a protected part of our hearts,

To share a bond that endures the seasons.

Flowing through compassion and joy,

We spread this love to one another,

Supporting each other,

Through hardships and loneliness,

To give comfort when our hearts are broken.

It is that which we do not give a name,

But merely a feeling and understanding.

When sisters stand united, mountains move,

For we have come to this moment,

Where roads intersect and visions merge.

When power and gentleness are entwined,

Forever in unity,

Our world will be forever changed. ~ Brooke

Kingdom of Heaven

Light reflects upon the mirroring waters,

Shining in lunar night.

I await upon the shore,

For echos in the wind,

Of words of mystical wisdom.

It is where I find myself,

Fully exposed, baring my soul,

To the lunar muse before me.

In search of the magical cipher,

That is the key to the kingdom of heaven.

This elusive kingdom where we all seek,

On our journey forward,

The magic lures us there.

Each with our hearts open for this moment,

Bursting with bliss.

When we finally arrive in exultation and joy,

We will realize it has always been here,

Exactly where we stand within ourselves. ~ Brooke

Following Our Calling

Image

For the last few months, I have been wondering if I am on the right path when it comes to my career.  I took job at a college in a small rural mountain town two years ago, and have been asked to accomplish a difficult job of working with sexual assaulted students, faculty, and staff, dealing with discrimination problems on campus, and bringing diversity to a conservative and religious population. When I was offered this job, I heard a calling to come here to help those on campus  who never had a voice or received help.

There are many days that I am too exhausted to even get up in the morning, and never feel rested even on the weekends.  Even under this pressure and exhaustion, I look forward to working particularly with the students as I feel that I am able to help them change the quality of their lives.  I received help myself in college to recognize my childhood abuse, and began psychological counseling there to change and begin improving my life.  In the same way, I am helping these college students.

Every time I question my path here, I receive a clear message to keep going. Today was such a day, when a faculty from another college in Pennsylvania came to visit and asked to meet with me as she is researching for a paper she is writing on diversity on college campuses similar to her institution.  Coincidentally, I am writing a report on this subject this week. We shared invaluable information that will help me make recommendations to change the climate of our college.

After our meeting today, I realize this is yet another person sent to help me on my mission here.  These blessings are given to me because I am here to help others, and not for my own gain.  While living here, I have had to give up things in my life such as being with others more like me, and living a more urban lifestyle.  On the other hand, I have met many dear friends, found a community where others care for me, and found those to share a connection whether in the outdoors, art, music, or spirituality.

I feel that I am given all that I need to call this place home, although I would not necessarily have found this place otherise.  Maybe the Universe is helping me build my home wherever I am suppose to be?  May you find your home through your calling.  Blessings of love to you, Brooke (Copyright 2014 Kundalini Spirit with All Rights Reserved)

Learning Our Talents

Image Since the rise of my Kundalini energy, I have wondered what my gift is. I have some empathic abilities, some clairvoyant visions, and past life experiences. However, I see many who experience telepathy, clairvoyance, and telekinetic abilities that are more acute than mine. I realize now what my gift is. It is the ability to heal myself emotionally. In three short years, I have healed so much of my emotional past, and believe that I will heal myself in this lifetime. When I met my twin flame three years ago, my Kundalini energy rose, and he helped me for many months with my Kundalini crisis, but that concluded when we began the runner dynamic phase.

I have been shown and given methods to emotionally heal myself from a higher source. I don’t know where it comes from exactly. It just comes to me then I write it down on my blog to share with others. The same goes for my poetry and my music compositions. It just comes to me and I simply write it down. I have done limited spiritual reading except on scientific or psychological theories to confirm that I am on the right track.

From intuitively learning these methods, I feel that I must share this information with others so I started several blogs all having the same posts so that I can share this information with as many people as possible.  This is the genesis of my life as a blogger. I don’t really consider myself a writer or poet, but I convey information, feelings, and thoughts through my writings. I hope you can use my blog as a source of inspiration for your spiritual journey. Blessings on your journey, Brooke (Copyright 2014 Kundalini Spirit with All Rights Reserved)

This I Want You To know Always . . .

I appreciate your gentleness,

And I love your smile.

The light shines from your eyes,

When I see through them.

Your warmth holds me in slumber,

And my dreams.

Our minds are one when I write to you,

As your heart beats within mine.

I see the good within you,

And feel your hidden kindness.

When I think of you,

My eyes fill with tears,

As I harbor no anger,

Since our grievances are the past.

Although you are no longer with me,

This I want you to know always.  ~ Brooke

Finding Peace Through Love

Image

I want to share something wonderful that happened to me recently at my job.  It involved my supervisor who I have always had differences in approach and opinions.  I usually struggled during our work together because of our differences.  During a recent event that I hosted, I decided to take a very different approach with her, the approach was through love.  In the past, when we had differences in our approach and we went with her approach, I went home upset and dismayed at my plight at work.

This time, I tried a gentler manner allowing her to take the lead in things, and praising her for her efforts.  Although we still disagree on our approaches and opinions, we are now getting things accomplished as I am able to soften the hard edges between us.  I try to show her through my actions that we are on the same team even if we don’t always agree.  Our working relationship appears to be improving.

We may never be best friends, but we are cordial and I am kind to her as that is what she appears to need from me.  I no longer fight hard with hard, but have become gentler in my way of dealing with wounded people as that is what most people are.  When wounded, they need us to be gentle and kind with them as they are already injured.  This has been quite a life lesson for me that I will apply to others in my life, particularly those I love, like my family.

I imagine I will get better and better at this ability, and can live a nonreactive life with most people even those who dislike me.  May you find peace through love, Brooke (Copyright 2014 Kundalini Spirit with All Rights Reserved)

 

All the Days of Your Life

Image

May your wounds heal,

For a better tomorrow.

May you choose your friends wisely,

To support your healthy life.

May you find love,

That is honest, trustworthy, and real.

May your path to abundance,

Be full of success and opportunities.

May you look past old grievances,

That no longer serve you.

May you find independence,

From the needs of your past.

May you believe that you deserve,

More than what you have in your life.

May you find happiness,

All the days of your life. ~ Brooke
