Color Of Empowerment

The prevalent theme of the times – self-empowerment, is evidently displayed by the many group activisms, carried out around the world , to highlight common dissatisfaction towards current heads of religious groups, corporations, governments, etc. . Interestingly, within our subtle energy, there are seven main energy centers (i.e. chakras) that connect to the physical body and one of these centers pertains directly to the said personal power / self-esteem. This center is often known as the 3rd chakra or the solar plexus chakra, which is located around the navel. The element associated with it is fire and its corresponding color is yellow. People who are courageous and possess perseverance are often described as those who have ‘fire in their belly’.

In my reiki practice (a non-religious healing modality involving universal energy), clairvoyants see rays of light literally flowing into the recipients of reiki. Generally speaking, whatever color that appears is the color that the recipient needs. If these recipients are dis-empowered people or those who see themselves as victims of life, often the yellow ray will manifest and flow into their aura! This is because people with low self-confidence tend to have a weak 3rd chakra and the yellow frequency of energy is much needed. Intuitively, I believe human beings know that yellow represents power, as royalties in certain countries do have their formal attire in that color. People who practise color therapy are also aware of the functions that each color seems to perform.

As more and more people stand up for their personal rights these days, the color yellow returns in grander ways than before, leading towards an empowered humanity and… a brighter future ahead. When people can see the light of day even during difficult times, it is because they are literally beaming with confidence and emanating ….. the Light from within.

Why Hatred Is Unnecessary

The famous quote – “All the world’s a stage, and all the men and women merely players: they have their exits and their entrances; and one man in his time plays many parts” which came from William Shakespeare surmises our lives very well. This has literally been validated by many experts in the metaphysical field. One such person is the renowned Dolores Cannon, a lady in her 80’s who has conducted thousands of past-life regressions in the last three decades. From her cases, we know people who come into our lives appear for a reason including those who give us the most number of headaches! And the following is what she has concluded from her years of work :-

“Remember that when you were on the Spirit side, you made a plan of what you hoped to accomplish in this life. You made contracts with various souls to play various parts in your scenario on Earth. Some of your greatest enemies or challenges during your life were your greatest friends on the Spirit side. They volunteered to come and play the villain in your Earthly scenario. And some play them very well !”

As such, from that perspective, we realize there’s no necessity to harbor perpetual hatred towards those whom have given us the most challenges in life. After all, at the core of those human beings, are divine souls that have the same essence of Love, that is within ourselves. Therein lies the profundity of the ancient Sanskrit greeting ‘ Namaste ‘ which is still in everyday use in India. Translated roughly, it means “The Spirit within me honors the Spirit in you” – a knowing that we are all made from the same One Divine Consciousness. Therefore to despise others is akin to condemning our own lineage.

The wise will not equate the act with the actor. Although life’s lessons are necessary ……. hatred is optional.

Mindfulness In The 21st Century – Wesak Day

“If the Buddha celebrated at Wesak were alive today, he would experience a dramatically different world. That world is your world, and your challenge in these moments is to find new ways to walk the spiritual path.

That path is timeless, as are the teachings of the great ones like Buddha, the Christ, and Kuan Yin. They shared universal truths to remind you of your divine nature and the love that it is at your core.

Even though these enlightened beings are no longer in physical form, they are very much alive on the inner planes. When living on the Earth, they discovered timeless wisdom about the true nature of existence, applying it to everyday life situations. As they did this, they set the template for enlightenment.

At Wesak season – including at Wesak celebrations such as those occurring this weekend – you have increased access to this template for your own journey. Not only that, since the veils between dimensions are thinner at such times, it becomes easier for you to receive tangible connections with the Buddha and the other ascended beings. Likewise, you have more opportunities to evolve spiritually because of the auspicious blessings available at this time.

If you’re wondering how the Buddha would be challenged by texting or other modern technology, you can be sure that he would face similar frustrations about living in the “on” position 24/7. Most likely, he would be talking about the need to find balance and quiet time.

Certainly, the Buddha would be teaching about how to stay connected to the world while still managing to meditate and do spiritual practice. As part of that, he would remind us to cherish and honor one another – not allowing devices and nonstop media to replace genuine human contact.

To be sure, the gaze between two people or the sound when two people speak remotely in present time cannot duplicate a mechanized exchange. There is a palpable energy that gets exchanged between people who are physically engaged with one another in the present moment. Your eyes and ears take in much more than you may imagine. It is through such energy exchanges that you learn from others, helping you to see yourself more clearly and to evolve spiritually.

Enlightenment cannot happen in a vacuum. It occurs in a process over time as you fully engage with life, the world, and other people. This was true for Buddha, and it is true for all of us….

We can learn mindfulness as Buddha did, controlling our thoughts and our ruminating mind. The masters like Buddha remind us that we can do what they did – that we are Buddhas in training. Buddha simply means enlightened one.

Think of yourself this Wesak season as a Buddha in training. Let go of the small stuff that arises and appears threatening. Focus on the big picture and the long term. You are, after all, eternal and you are wired at a DNA level to achieve mastery as the Buddha did. Trust this.”

Ever-changing Taste

“Just because I liked something at one point in time doesn’t mean I’ll always like it, or that I have to go on liking it at all points in time as an unthinking act of loyalty to who I am as a person, based solely on who I was as a person.

To be loyal to myself is to allow myself to grow and change, and challenge who I am and what I think.”

– Jarod Kintz, author.
