Real-time Self Care - The Art of Fluid Perception
Self Care has been one of the ‘hot’ topics among those who work with me of late. How does one achieve real-time Self Care, in the face of the energetic turbulence we are all surfing?
The answer lies in a shift in perception. Albert Einstein is quoted as saying "We can't solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them." Too true. When life seems to have dealt you the hand of ‘overwhelm’, it is time, truly, to shift your perception. What you need, in terms of Self Care, is a fresh point of view, enabling you to practice Self Care first, rather than ‘later’.
One of my favorite spiritual books, Mr. God This is Anna, by Fynn, is the story of a little girl with an intimate relationship with the Divine. In her description to her friend, Fynn, she says that most of us have only limited points of view, but the Divine has “infinite viewing points” ~ or, in the words of the five-year-old avatar “infinite points to view”.
When you choose to open your perception a bit wider, to allow in the infinite ocean of possibilities, you are aligning with that Divine perceptual field of infinite lenses of perception.
Unexpected miracles are energetic alignments that happen when we let go of our default reactive states (thought patterns and habits of behaviour) and choose to allow in the optimal solution at any moment.
Ask inwardly: What am I not seeing?
What am I not allowing myself to perceive?
What is the optimal solution?
~ and choose to trust that it will be revealed, in the moment when it is needed (usually not before). ;)
“If the doors of perception were cleansed everything would appear to man as it is, infinite.”
~ William Blake

Sometimes we get so involved in the day-to-day that we forget how
fluid things really are. We forget the power that runs through our
hearts and bodies in every moment of every day.
We forget to connect, each morning, with our own inherent Divinity,
and co-create each day in joyous celebration!
Try this if it feels good to you: Each morning, connect with the
Divine Mother, with Source ~ however that feels right for you. Allow
yourself to be held in that vibration of perfect flow, of perfect co-
creation. Ask Source:
"What shall we co-create today?"
And listen, as you go about your day... delighting in the wonder of
excitement and anticipation!
A few days ago this quotation arrived in my inbox. What a perfect
way to see oneself, in the mirror of Her love.
"If you knew how much you have in common with the
Divine Infinite Structure of the universe . . .
what a heavenly alignment you are . . .
how many points of power are hidden below the surface . . .
how you so expertly formulate an elixir of light within your bodily
structure . . .
If you truly knew, you would never again doubt that YOU are
the keeper of what is to come for you physically, emotionally, and
From this day forward you'd simply be the sequence of movement
called CREATION aligned with vibrations that beckon you into more of
your Divine Nature.
Harry Potter would be impressed!"

I have recently been confronted about world conditions and how aligning in the heart is an impractical stance. A kind gentleman called in to my radio broadcast and went on at length on how the world has so much wrong with it, that we MUST stand against poverty, disease, injustice, and all of the wrongdoings that are so prevalent at this time. He said that, for him, the avatars like Christ and Buddha were warriors first, and that we must fight with and for the Light.
At one time, I was a member of the security team that ‘protected’ my spiritual teacher. We were self-proclaimed “Warriors of Light”. I am a longtime martial artist, with a 3rd Degree Black Belt in Shotokan Karate. I had my own Dojo (training school) for 12 years. I taught young people (mostly women) how to stand in their power. I did NOT teach them to EVER stand AGAINST.... ANYTHING. To quote the film “The Karate Kid” ~ ‘never prevent war by fighting in one’. This is truth. This is real. In the face of all that needs to change on this beautiful planet of ours, and I agree there is much... nothing will happen unless we change our concept of what it is to be a warrior.
Dan Millman, wrote of this challenge, in his book “Way of the Peaceful Warrior”, a novel about confronting the false personas, the false ‘demons’ within and moving completely into the flow.
I, too, confronted within myself the inner pacifist, the one who would walk away rather than confront - even if it meant sacrificing the truth. I went to martial arts training to correct this imbalance. I was once mocked in a black belt class for ‘backing up’ and not countering an attack. I had to learn to stand FOR my own heart, my own energy, my own strength and safety... and also never to threaten those things in another, if it could possibly be prevented.
There is an old saying in the martial arts. So old, in fact, that none know its origins. “Hold peace rather than conflict. Hurt rather than maim. Maim rather than kill. Kill only as a last resort, for all of life is precious ~ and none can be replaced.”
To feel that life is a battle and we, as light-holders, are obligated to go to war is the old paradigm, the old cycle that was driven by the energies of competition, conflict and violent resolution.
Nothing could be further from Truth. I was raised to ‘choose love’ even in the face of the most challenging circumstances. I also, like all of you, had no real basis of understanding for what that meant. Sometimes I would ‘choose love’ through clenched teeth, wanting to speak my truth but knowing that if I did so I would be hurt or someone else would. Other times I would ‘choose love’ when I was really smarting from something someone had said. For intuitives, a verbal slam is every bit as painful as a physical blow. I heard someone say recently that they would rather ‘take the hit’ than verbal abuse, because “it is over quicker that way”.
The warrior archetype is changing. It must. This is necessary. A peaceful warrior is not vengeful. A warrior of the heart does not carry the energy of the ‘avenging angel’, of ‘win-lose’ or of positional hierarchy. A warrior of the heart cannot stand ‘against’ but must make the choice to stand ‘FOR’, in peace, in fortitude, in forbearance, and in strength.
The archetype of the new warrior is that of courage to look within; courage to face the defended positions in consciousness that limit our perceptions, our awareness and our ability to recognize and accept that truth is subjective, that truth can be found in all cultures, all forms, and in every... single... heart. There is not one soul incarnate or out-of-body that is not divinely connected to truth at the core.
The world must change. Yes. And violence can never again be thought of nor held energetically as the ‘only viable option’. War is not a solution. It is an archaic, sad course of action, for a world that continues to choose ignorance and blame.
I have worked long and hard within myself to transcend past versions of warrior. I have ‘fought the battle within’. I am NOT a pacifist. HOWEVER ~ I agree with Mother Teresa, who said:
“ I was once asked why I don’t participate in anti-war demonstrations. I said that I will never do that, but as soon as you have a pro-peace rally, I will be there.”
Be well my sister and fellow warriors. May the love of the Divine Mother find you, and may you lay your weapons at Her feet.
