There is no True Reality.

While this blog was initially about my adventures in growing my own food, it has morphed into a window into my search for the truth and justice I was raised to revere. Also, be warned that while I strive to be open-minded and open-hearted, I can have some very strong opinions on certain subjects.

Silverstein always has been, and always will be my favorite poet because he doesn’t even need words in his poem to make people open their eyes.

I feel like crying

You have today. You can make it rich and you can fill it with meaning.

No matter what else you may have or not have, you have today. You have the priceless opportunity to live with purpose, passion, joy and love.

“Thin-shaming and fat-shaming are not separate, opposing issues—they are stratifications of the same issue: Patriarchal culture’s need to demoralize, distract, and pit women against one another. To keep women shackled by shame and hunger. To keep us obsessing over our flaws rather than our power and potential. To get our money.”

Remember that this is not something we do just once or twice. Interrupting our destructive habits and awakening our heart is the work of a lifetime.

Man. Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money. Then he sacrifices the money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future. He lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived.
— The Dalai Lama (when asked about what surprises him most about humanity)

Can you give a bit of an advice on how improve one’s psychic abilities ? like I have been trying to see grids and geometries in the sky but the it doesn’t get any better while on the same time my  sister says that she can see it all the time . I am a fifteen year indigo and have been experiencing awakening from the past few months.

Do or do not there is no Try. 
We can’t force ourselves to have a spiritual experience, it defeats the point of experiencing it! Also when we compare ourselves to others we get lost in the envy of their experience instead of learning to embrace the uniqueness of our own! 

You are so young, you have so much time to learn and explore your own consciousness. It’s awesome your awakening at such a young age and are willing to learn. Really explore your intuition and listen to your higher self. When we force ourselves to have an experience, we miss the magic of the journey in the present. Seeing energy is about learning to be more observant towards your surroundings and it most definitely doesn’t happen over night. It’s aout learning to be more consciously aware of everything around you. The more we force, the less it will come to us because it’s like learning to read. Do you just wake up one day and are able to read an entire novel? Usually not, it takes practice, conscious practice, understanding of yourself, your own energy body, how you see the world around you and so much more. It’s a journey and sometimes we have to learn to appreciate ourselves within the present even if we’re striving to be somewhere we’re not yet ready. I could even apply this to my own situation and how we need to move but i feel like at the same time, we need to heal and grow before we finally take that huge leap, I almost hate to admit that but it’s about accepting yourself. 

Sometimes you have to take a step back in order to grow even further, I bet a year or even 6 months from now, you’ll be able to see Energy. It comes from the heart, not only the third eye but really opening ourselves to our heart center and being consciously aware. Try some simple techniques out to see if they help, How about cloud watching? Sit somewhere and just look up into the clouds and meditate with them, what do you see? Or you could do an aura exercise, this one almost always works, put your hand on a piece of paper and stare at it. the longer you stare you will notice your focus shift more inward and as your shift more inward you are becoming more aware of your inner eye and mind. If all goes well, you will see a slight aura around your hand usually white or black but it can also show itself in different colors too. The idea here is about being consciously in tune with yourself and the world around you. Really watch Nature, nature is loaded with all sorts of energy to observe and reflect within. It is soo healing to connect to nature, it really helps ground and root us but it also teaches us to step outside ourselves. To be open and receiving. When we’re open to receiving, this is when the magic happens. You start to realize you had it in you this entire time to open up your own abilities because they live within you. 

hope this helps
