Sit Down, Listen Up, and Listen in — Breaking Down the Door to the Real You

Dear Eden,

I know that I’m not quite where I want to be, I feel I’m evolving but my life just isn’t flowing well. What should I do? I feel stuck and confused. Thank you so much, A.

 

Dearest A,

What have you been doing with your self? What have you been doing to your self?

Do you consider your self at all, do you listen to your inner yearnings and desires, or have you become a being of reactionary measures? Right. You know the answer to that. We want you to SIT DOWN.  We want you to take a time out. Stop doing. Stop thinking. Stop worrying about the fate of the world or the environment. None of it matters. None of it is real. It is neither here no there nor anywhere in between. All is spirit. That’s all it is. And it’s all part of YOUR creation. So. So. Do you like what you have been creating? Are you happy with yourself? Do you feel that you have been creating a more harmonious earth, or are you on the other side? What is it you are wanting. What is it YOU are wanting?

Ha. You don’t quite know, do you? Well, that’s why we want you to SIT DOWN. Sit still. Stop moving. Stop moving physically, stop moving mentally. Sit still and relax. Breathe in, and breathe out. Sit still and open your heart until you have found your inner peace and you KNOW what you are wanting.

Do you want to be with your family? Do you want to be in the sun? The snow? In exotic foreign lands with
interesting people? Deep in the forest with birds and trees? On a mountain alone? In a valley? With your hands in the earth? Making art? Fighting battles that are part of the old ways? Do you want to be serving others? Do you want to be peaceful, or in motion? HOW do you want to be living? Not where, but how.

Banish the rest of the world from your mind, get rid of all the “I should”s. Just think of yourself, and find your inner self.

The next important step we are giving you is to listen. Listen well. Listen long. Listen Deep. When you sit down, and you finally hear yourself, we want you to pay attention. Pay more attention to YOU, to what your self tells you, to what you want, that you have paid attention to any one else this past decade. Pay more attention to what you are desiring than the attention you are giving to your work, to strangers and your family. Just listen to YOU.

In essence, long, long ago, like almost every human on earth, you shut the door on your true self, turned the key in the lock and plastered it over with sound proof insulation.

It’s time to take the insulation DOWN. Rip it off, unlock the door, and kick it down. You’ll probably have to kick pretty hard, more than once, because that door has been shut a long time now. But once you open that door, guess who’ll be standing on the other side? Yep – you. And you have a lot to say to YOU.

Listen up, and listen in. Let him in. He’s been knocking an screaming and waiting and waiting. It is time.

Don’t be afraid. Put up affirmations on the walls and your rooms if you have to, but don’t be afraid. You can do this. You should do this. For YOU. Just for you – the most important person in your world. If you can’t do this for you, you can’t really help anyone else, not really. So please, we ask you, do it for you.

It’s time to turn off that little lightbulb you’ve been using to light your way, and let the real light shine.

All will be well. You are blessed, you will see.

Listen, and learn.

Blessings,

Eden

 

Flight or Fright responses hindering your joy?

Dear Eden,
WOW. Intense! That is the word for my month so far. I know that we are shifting and changing and growing. I understand that this fall is a time for things to be coming to the foreground so that we can release them and move on to a better life, a better world. But must it be so hard? *grin*What can I do to make this process a little easier? Or even a lot easier? I’m so tired of reacting to weather and bills and things.  I want to stay in the moment and be joyful, as you say. But how? I’m feeling a bit worn thin.
Blessings,
J.

 

Sweet, silly woman. You know that you overreact, right? You need to tone it down a little. Be easy. Let life be easy. Just take each moment, as it comes, in that moment. Part of the problem we are sensing with you is that your adrenals tend to jump into hyperdrive at the merest hint of a problem. You are always ready to solve a problem, to save someone or something. And that worked great for you when you were a warrior, when you hunted, when you fought. But now you are here, in this world which you are wanting to be more peaceful and harmonious. To be more enlightened.

SO. To be that way, to progress and stay in a heightened state of awareness, we need you to ditch the flight or fight. Take a flower essence combination formula, such as Bach’s rescue remedy, or Earth Lodge’s Ease & Flow or Safe to Be. Use B vitamins. Drink milk and calming teas. Use homeopathic remedies for anxiety, stress or hysteria (there are many!)

Also, be aware that the crystals and other homeopathic remedies which you have been working with lately are helping you see your problems so that you can shed them. So they are bringing things into focus, and raising buried issues. This, of course, is slightly uncomfortable for you, but it will get better as they are released.

All will be well. You will be well. And you know you ar much lighter and more joyfull than you would have been in the past with the same situations. So rejoice and be merry!

You are loved,
Eden
