POULTICE OF SELF-LOVE

September 16, 2015

As many of you who follow us on a regular basis know, the next few years we are focusing on a different spiritual practice each month. September is the month of forgiveness. While I have always known it to be a spiritual practice, I did not realize that there days that were set aside to calm together as global bodies and practice forgiveness. For example, I just found out that August 5th was International Forgiveness Day, Global Forgiveness Day was August 27th and Regular Forgiveness Day was June 26th. While all these days are important, it is also important to remember that each day has the potential to be forgiveness day in our lives.

After our Living the Five Agreements group tonight, I decided to see what Toltec Wisdom said about forgiveness. In the Everything Toltec Wisdom book, it is written,

Don’t Make Assumptions

My friend Jane, who I mention quite often in my gratitude journal and who inspired our affirmation card ministry, send me a funny story which is all about what happens when we make assumptions. This is her story.

My friend, Ingrid, and I made these candleholders. We made 6 in total. They are put together like building blocks with glass vases, bowls, plates etc. to get the desired affect and then glued to stay in place. We’d been collecting glassware from second-hand shops for a while and it took nearly a whole day to make the 6.

We decided to give the three largest to Patience’s Mum, Sylvia, for Christmas, as they looked great in a cluster.

Doubt and Truth

November 1, 2013

Once again, the answer to my prayers is found in my Toltec Wisdom cards. I have been struggling for a few months about why I have felt the need to pull away from a few people in my life. I can’t say it was anything they did or even anything they said. I cannot even say it had anything to do with what others had said about them. The feelings began shortly after having met them.

There were a few things which happened which made me go hmm. I kept trying to asking myself if I was projecting something on to the situation. I kept asking myself if I was allowing the experiences of others to shape my reality. Even when I allowed the external to wash over and off me, I found myself with this feeling as if Spirit was telling me to back away from this relationship. I felt as if I were to pray for them and envision myself sending them healing energies. At the same time, I know I am not supposed to have anything else to do with them.

don Miguel Ruiz once said, “You know the word ‘Toltec’ means artist. When I talk about Toltec, I’m really talking about the entire humanity, because we all are artists. Even if we don’t have the awareness, we’re always creating. The biggest art that we humans create is a story – the story of ourselves, the story of our life. It looks so real, and we live in that story… We give a meaning to every single word that we use. We give our personal power to knowledge… and knowledge creates a massive piece also, which is the main character of our story. Which means it creates us, what believe we are…”

This past Wednesday I had the last of my four Reiki 1 classes and as with last week, it began with my teacher asking me to close my eyes and pick three cards. The three that I picked were Destiny, Wisdom, and Nonjudgmental. As with last week, she smiled and she said yes those are you; read the backs if you would like. You just need to walk in the fullness of them

Wisdom – Treat everyone and everything with loving compassion. When you see no difference between the sacred and the profane, the saint and the sinner. That is the ultimate wisdom.

Destiny – You can look . . . and you will find it. You can not look . . . and you will find it. That which is yours will surely come to you.

Nonjudgmental – To straighten what is crooked, you must first straighten yourself. Once you are aligned, the whole world looks different.

Today is a new day!

July 23, 2013

I was once taught that the most dangerous states to live in are the past and the present. Today is a new day! One thing so many people do is spend their entire lives beating themselves up for something, which they said or did or didn’t say or do years ago, but today is a new day. The past is the past and you cannot go back and change it. What you do have control over is today, so live it to its fullest, focusing on being the best you that you can be today.
