Acknowledging Darkness – Key To Survival?

Pressure to feel upbeat can make you feel downbeat, while embracing your darker moods can actually make you feel better in the long run, according to new research.

“We found that people who habitually accept their negative emotions experience fewer negative emotions, which adds up to better psychological health,” said study senior author Iris Mauss, an associate professor of psychology at UC Berkeley.

At this point, researchers can only speculate on why accepting your joyless emotions can defuse them, like dark clouds passing swiftly in front of the sun and out of sight.

“Maybe if you have an accepting attitude toward negative emotions, you’re not giving them as much attention,” Mauss said. “And perhaps, if you’re constantly judging your emotions, the negativity can pile up.”


The study, conducted at UC Berkeley and published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, tested the link between emotional acceptance and psychological health in more than 1,300 adults in the San Francisco Bay Area and the Denver, Co., metropolitan area.

The results suggest that people who commonly resist acknowledging their darkest emotions, or judge them harshly, can end up feeling more psychologically stressed.

By contrast, those who generally allow such bleak feelings as sadness, disappointment and resentment to run their course reported fewer mood disorder symptoms than those who critique them or push them away, even after six months.

[Note: In my healing practice (reiki), I have come across clients who spontaneously burst into tears, during a healing session, despite them not acknowledging having any unresolved issue. The Archangels I work with, have explained that such people were holding onto negative emotions which they didn’t process properly. The reiki energy I channeled helped release those trapped emotions and my clients cried correspondingly. As such, I resonate with the UC Berkeley research above. This reminds me of the saying, “What we resist, persists.”]

Ending The Blame Game

“This separation that is happening right now on the planet..all different ways, all different kinds.. physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, political … it all causes heartbreak. It’s a massive collective heartbreak at this moment in time. All this is in the process of being cleared… it’s going to come to some kind of convergence. You will know when you will know… it will be released.. it’s the pain and suffering of the human beings. It’s such a heightened state right now and creating separation on every level… you feel it everywhere..it permeates the ether of your world.. you can’t walk around without feeling it if you are sensitive.”

“Everybody’s blaming everyone else for it..that’s not the case…it’s just coming up to be released and everyone is pointing fingers. When you look at one side or the other, you don’t see the truth..everyone is so confused. It’s LOVE in the middle, that’s where the answer is. That’s the work to get to the place of being able to stay there…there will be a culmination point..it’s going to shift things massively…it will resolve itself. All the suffering and judgments..will be exposed..and they will realise their judgments were really never true..and then there will be a time..for FORGIVENESS for selves .. for each other…those judgments need forgiveness.”

True Role Models

A recent tabloid article on fashion models caught my attention and hence, my writing about it in this post. Throughout the years of my blog, I have periodically described about the shift in human consciousness on this planet. What this means is that more and more people are changing their attitudes and perspective of life itself, resulting in many positive changes in our modern day society. Naysayers will be quick to discount this notion and say “Look at all the chaos and strife that still exist… how can one say that things are changing for the better?” Here’s where my disclaimer comes into play – the shift is not over yet, as awakening of humans is a process. When more people realise what’s truly important in life and their relationship with others, their action will undoubtedly change.

Coming back to the aforementioned article, it was written that models these days are not just about looks. The stereotype of them being narcissistic is slowly changing as quite a few models these days openly raise awareness on a range of subjects e.g. overcoming eating disorders, drug and alcohol abuse, warding off unwanted sexual advances, improving self-worth, advocating sustainability and living a green lifestyle. Legendary supermodel Naomi Campbell has been lending her voice to issues of racism on and off runway. She was even quoted as saying “The time has come to build a more equitable (fashion) industry with a good form of checks and balances.” She opines that racial diversity should not be just a trend.

Russian model Natalia Vodianova is a philanthropist and a strong advocate for sustainability and wears a reusable face mask. In February 2021, she was named United Nations (UN) goodwill ambassador. At a press conference, she uttered “I look forward to continuing my work to tackle the myths and taboos that billions of women, girls and vulnerable young people have to live with and raise the standards of women’s health and dignity.” People like her are indeed a model in every sense of the word – a model for propagating a continuous positive shift of consciousness in humanity.

Only Time 🕚 Will Tell

“Who can say where the road goes..Where the day flows, only time” (An extract of lyrics from the above song)

The enclosed YouTube video features a beautiful song called “Only Time” by Enya, the low profile but talented and successful singer. Even though it was released way back in 2000 (a whopping 21 years ago), Enya’s voice and music still soothe me, without fail, every time I listen to it. Judging by the numerous positive YouTube comments of those who listened to it, I can say that the song is a balm for other souls too.

Out of curiosity, I asked Archangel Michael to tune into the Akashic records (incarnations) of Enya and her life purpose. If I interpreted Michael’s answers correctly, then it seems Enya was formerly a singer/musician in several past lives before. So, her present talent is linked to her past experience. This information doesn’t surprise me at all because hypnotherapy has revealed similar cases whereby people who are currently gifted in some aspects were also adept in those areas previously.

In addition, the angelic being also said that Enya is one of the many Lightworkers incarnated on Earth now. ‘Lightworker’ is a term used to describe people whose purpose is to help humanity/world via different vocations. Archangel Michael added that her voice and music can heal people by tuning/balancing their chakras (energy vortices of rainbow colours🌈). Even if people don’t believe in angels or have no understanding of chakras, Enya’s songs are obviously gifts to humanity, especially during these challenging times.

So when will all the present chaos end? I guess Only Time will tell…

Moving Ahead In Life!

“People should pursue what they’re passionate about. That will make them happier than pretty much anything else.”

“It is important that people look forward to coming to work in the morning and enjoy working.”

– quotes by Elon Musk, billionaire & co-founder of Tesla.

When it comes to the two words “Passion” and “Work”, I have found out from my interactions with people from all walks of life , that their general feedback are (1) “I can’t pursue my passion because…(multiple reasons)” (2) “I dislike my work but I have to do it because of money.”Thus it’s so liberating that the aforementioned quotes came from the mega-successful Elon Musk . Personally , I opine people frequently create limitations for themselves, usually in the form of excuses (e.g. no time, not good enough, not skilful, existing obligations to fulfil) that result in the negating of their passion and prolonging of their agony in a job they hate.

In the end, life is not merely about surviving…it’s about LIVING. If we can’t find joy in what we do daily, then I think it’s meaningless to live another day longer on this planet. One of the effects of how governments and companies are reacting towards COVID is the lost of jobs for many people around the world. It may indeed create stress for those who have lost their income but all is not futile, I think. I have observed that some of these people who lost their jobs didn’t like them in the first place. So now, such people are propelled to do something else. It’s like a re-boot for their career. After almost a year of the pandemic, a sizeable proportion of these people via creativity and courage, became self-employed . Many of them learned new skills or created a job from their passion. When interviewed, they explained that it was tough in the beginning but now they have adapted and learned to be independent. Success is so sweet when people have earned it!

As Will Smith (famous entertainer) once said “When we are pushed against the back of the wall, the only way to go is… Forward!”

Heart ❤️ Based Action

Lorna Byrne an Irish bestselling author , who can see and communicate with angelic beings since young, has shared many divine messages through her memoirs and public talks. One memorable quote explained that majority of us came to live ordinary lives… but ordinary DOES NOT mean unimportant. All of us can contribute to society without having the need to take on ‘big’ roles such CEOs of corporations or Presidents of countries. Any act of compassion or kindness to others IS important, especially to the recipient of it.

In my healing profession, quite a number of my clients want to know what their life purpose is. They opine their role as an employee or a home maker is so common and therefore can’t possibly be labelled as a ‘divine purpose’. Thus they wonder what their calling is. As revealed by the angelic beings, any caring act is divine and worthy. Hence one should not place too much emphasis on job titles. As per the message of the above YouTube cartoon that features Snoopy.. “Fill your Heart💓, Do your part.”

Dance Of Life!

“This is all just a dance. It’s going to be okay, no matter what is playing out around you. No matter what unfolds, please keep dancing, smiling, loving and above all, shining your lights. There is so much magic you can’t see happening behind the scenes and the light on the Other Side of all of this is SO bright. There is so much to be hopeful for. All of this fear you are manifesting shows you just how powerful you are. You just have to choose…choose to accept you ARE the creators. What you believe is what you will see, not the other way around.”

“You have to feel into what you want.. FEEL IT, and KNOW you deserve it. This is your signal to the Universe that this is what you want. The Universe will fill in the pieces, and make it better than you could have ever possibly imagine. Don’t hold attachment or expectation to the outcome. This can cause blocks to the outcome. You WILL be provided that which is for your highest good. TRUST it and it will come … all in divine timing. That IS the dance.”

– a message for humanity from the Higher Self, during a quantum healing session (hypnotherapy) facilitated by Nina Morrocco.

———————————

Perhaps the above messages are worth digesting after a tumultuous year, which many in the spiritual circle have described 2020 as the Year of Great Awakening. I have read many cases of how people (who previously drew high salaries) after losing their jobs because of the pandemic, drew inner strength and humility to take gig-economy jobs (e.g. Uber driver) to support their families. Others took time during the lockdown to rekindle their relationship with their loved ones. Also there were those who through introspection, discovered what their potential is and the things that truly matter to them.

On the flip side, I have also read and personally know of cases whereby people caved in to fear/panic and are now suffering from depression. Quite a few have even attempted suicide. As such, I can see the wisdom of the aforesaid quantum healing messages : we truly ARE the creators of our personal reality. In closing, may more people focus on what they wish to manifest in Year 2021 by tuning into the things they LOVE, instead of what they fear.

Be A Rebel!

“I feel the need for harmony
And I look around, but it’s not what I see
I see angry faces looking at me
And I want to know what makes them so
For this world can be a dangerous place
But it’s all we got, and it’s quite a lot..take a look at yourself
You may not be the same as everyone else
You’re just different, and that’s okay
We all follow our own way
And if you find that they won’t listen
Then they’ve got nothing to say
So don’t get mad and don’t feel sad
Be a rebel, not a devil”

The above is part of the lyrics of a new song by the legendary New Order band. This blogpost also happens to be the 3rd consecutive post of mine that’s related to songs. I believe the aforementioned lyrics are self-explanatory and somehow I feel that New Order’s lyrics are describing current times about how people may be feeling now. Divine messages channeled by spiritual people over the past months also mentioned how this year as well as 2021 will be laden with upheavals and challenges, so Earth may appear to be a dangerous place to live in right now. In addition each person will likely to react differently and that’s perfectly appropriate. We are each creating our own path based upon our level of consciousness, so there’s no need to get mad if we don’t see eye to eye on all issues.

I would interpret the “Be a rebel, not a devil” part as daring to be our authentic self by expressing our opinion and preference, even if we may seem like an outcast. At the same time, that expression need not be the kind that creates havoc like demonic beings. In short, the idea is to acknowledge our uniqueness and let it show without fear, while allowing others to do the same. If humanity can practise this, then I opine we will be able to show Unconditional Love 💕 to all i.e. loving self and others equally without any negative judgment. If the Source/Creator wanted all of us to behave exactly the same, we wouldn’t have been bestowed with different personalities. But though we are different, we can still live in harmony as One family … of humanity.

Be a rebel!

Symphony Of Rain

When the pain inside becomes too much to bear..And when there’s too much fear in the air…Who do we turn to, in times of despair?

And when dark clouds start forming in the sky… Do we run and hide for shelter? Or could the subsequent rain be the balm for our soul…that washes all the pain and sorrow… To refresh the air that’s tainted with fear of a more dreadful tomorrow?

And in the end, the rain from the sky is like the tears running down our cheeks… An expression of release and letting go… of what doesn’t serve us anymore. A change of weather … for the better.

(Note : This blogpost was inspired by the aforementioned touching composition called “RAIN” by the group named Simply Three. In numerology, the no. 3 means compassion, creativity and catalyst. This band simply lives up to these descriptions.)
