Thoughts Create Your Future


Thoughts create actions and actions create the life we live. We are the grand total sum of everything that we have ever experienced and how we reacted to the situation.

When some so-called negative event occurs in our life we have a choice, we can let it define us, destroy us or it can strengthen us, the choice is ours. It does no good to be upset about it, it is over and done with and can’t be changed, you need to move on and learn from it.

We all get into destructive relationships, it is a fact of life, those relationships are brought to us so we can learn and grow. Sometimes the people who give us the most grief are the ones who love us the most and are trying to teach us something, while they themselves are also learning. They may not always have the most altruistic motives in mind as they are also dealing with karma and how you react will  also affect their growth and have a positive effect on their evolution.

By setting boundaries on their behaviour and how it affects you, you are teaching them an important lesson. They need to learn they can’t always have their way, especially if it affects someone else in a negative light.

We can’t change the past, stop regretting was done way back when. The road to success is always under construction,and there are detours, but you need to start doing the things today that will improve your life tomorrow.

By constantly striving to improve your life and remembering that we often take two steps forward and one backward, sooner or later you will create the life you desire. Change normally comes when we least expect it and sometimes the outcome won’t be exactly the way we envisioned it, but it will be better than you ever imagined.

Earth is often called the “School House” of life. We come here to learn and grow. The opportunity for growth is faster and more intense on this planet than on many others. That is why we all came here. Our lessons could be learned at a  slower rate in other realms, but we all chose this plane  of existence to be  able to attain this phase of our evolution as quickly as possible.

Learning through so called negative experiences is just part of the game plan. An incentive to learn is the knowing that once the lesson is finally completely, the negativity will also be complete and we can move on to more pleasant surroundings.

The_Wisdom_of_our_An_Cover_for_Kindle

There is an extreme shortage of common sense in today’s world, When looking back in history, I soon discovered this has always been a problem, Benjamin Franklin once said, ”Of all the senses, common sense seems to be the one that is used the least.” As obvious as it may seem, many seem to be totally oblivious to it. Most, if not all of the problems the world faces today could be solved if people would just sit back and think about what would seem to be the most obvious and simple solution to any issue. Often times people tend to overcomplicate the issues. I often think back to what my parents and grandparents believed and said, at the time I thought they were totally out of their mind and ignored it. I now wish I would have listened and followed their advice. It is now evident they were a lot smarter than we gave them credit for. Many times, in today’s world, the schools and universities can no longer be counted on to teach truth and values that will guide someone through life.

Numerology and the Planetary Shift


The Bashful Country Boy

I thought this was INTERESTING.

Numerology and the Planetary Shift Into Higher CONSCIOUSNESS

The date, 11/11/11 has passed but that does not mean that the
significance of the energy that was being keenly felt by a lot of people
during that time has lessened in its effectiveness to bring about
change in the minds and lives of many people. Most of us continue to see
double digits-especially 11 for the past two years. People have
reported seeing the number 1 repeated on car tags and odometers, or that
they look at a clock at exactly 11:11.

The winter solstice of Dec
21, 2012 marks the end of the Mayan long count cycle. This occurs at
11:11 universal time (on the prime meridian at Greenwich).
Interestingly, if you add the numbers of the date 12-21-2012 the sum is
11.

The number 11 represents new beginnings/cycles, synchronicity,
the opening of portals or gateways, fresh ways of thinking, increased
spiritual tendencies, and compassion. Eleven is one of the master
numbers. When the number 11 is repeated, it has even more significance
and is meant to call our attention to something going on spiritually,
astrologically, individually, and planetary. It is a sign that something
is about to change or shift.

The year 2012 is noted as the
closing of a great cycle within the complex calendar system of the Mayan
civilization. The ancient Mayan people of Central America (specifically
the Yucatan Peninsula) were astronomically advanced and kept as many as
twenty different calendars marking cyclical events with pinpoint
accuracy or noting schedules for anything from seed planting and
religious rites, to solar and lunar eclipses. The Mayans perceived time
to be cyclical rather than linear; so, they expected events to repeat
themselves in some fashion.

The Mayans indicated that the time
period in which we are now in would be a time of environmental chaos
(floods, fire, wind, and earthquakes), social upheaval, as well as a
time of great spiritual opportunity in which humans could choose to move
into a new harmonious age. The Mayans prophesied the return of
Kulkukan, and modern-day Christians herald the return of Jesus Christ,
also known as Lord Maitreya.

One calendar, known as the 13-Baktun
or long count system, runs for just over 5,125 years. That cycle is set
to complete on the winter solstice of 2012 at 11:11 Universal Time. Many
people see this “end of the cycle” as the end of the world. Since the
Earth has undergone many shifts that nearly wiped out the global
population, some people fear that this might occur again in our near
future. We don’t have to look far to see that things on the Earth are
rapidly changing. But, does this mean that the Earth is about to be
destroyed? I hardly think so. We are on the threshold or beginning of
something wonderful and peaceful. If you look at the number 11, you can
imagine two upright poles side by side. This could represent a door post
or portal. I like to think of it as you and me-everyone on the
planet-standing side by side in unity and oneness. We really are one.

The
December 21, 2012 date was considered important to the ancient tribes
of the Amazon jungles, the builders of the pyramids in Egypt, indigenous
people of Canada, and the Hopi Indians. As I mentioned before, the
Earth is entering alignment with the equator of the Milky Way Galaxy. On
this date, the Earth is also completing one full astrological cycle
known as the “precession of the equinoxes” as it does approximately
every 26,000 years. During this cycle, the Earth passes through each of
the twelve signs of the zodiac, each lasting for 2,000-2,152 years. When
all these converge, we know that something big is on Earth’s horizon.

The
element of surprise is best appreciated when it comes to holiday gifts
and birthday parties! Sudden and unprovoked change in one’s life is
scary and unsettling. When people are provided with knowledge-especially
when it has to do with major life changes and a significant spiritual
transformation-they tend to calm down. Putting things into perspective
brings comfort and we can more easily relax and go with the flow. If
someone holds the belief that the changes we are experiencing means that
the Earth is about to be destroyed, one will feel panic and out of
control of one’s own life. If a person understands that the turmoil of
the shift is simply a step of progress in our spiritual evolution, he or
she may be more inclined to tune in to what Spirit is saying and find
peace in the process.

 Enlightenment

At this period of time in the history of man, there is probably more individual searching being done into the theories behind the origin of the human race,what happens after death,the possibility of life on other planets, and what our relationship is to these life forms, if they do exist. There are millions of people who are questioning the existence of God, who he really is, and what is my relationship with him? Is he someone who mysteriously floats around on a cloud watching and judging us from above like some bigger than life Santa Claus, or is he, like many of the esoteric sciences claim, a part of our inner Self, whom we have constant contact with, someone whom we and everything in the universe are connected and are thus one? Each of us in our own way is experiencing what God is, and thus we are each a part of God, thus we are God! This book is a brief account of my search for my own truth

The Seven Chakras and the Seven Spanish Angels


Written by; The Bashful Country Boy

During the late 1980’s and early 90’s the song Seven Spanish Angels was a popular country song, sung by Ray Charles and Willie Nelson.It always seemed to have spiritual connotations and whenever I heard it being sung
,something of a supernatural nature was about to occur.

I never really understood what it all meant and had no idea what was referred to as the Seven Spanish Angels. At that time , before the internet and Google is was difficult to find any information on a subject of this type.

In today’s world, information is much easier to come by, and it seems as if more and more information is becoming readily  available. It’s either because I am becoming more receptive to it and my growth has advanced to a level where I can more easily understand it, or it may be because we are approaching the end of 2012 and the channels are opening, or it
could be and probably is a combination of both.

The return of Christ is symbolic of our return to Christ Consciousness. It alludes to a spiritual revolution within ourself whereby we learn to open our seven chakras or seven seals. They represent the seven levels of man’s development that must be purified before the trumpets are sounded and the seals are opened.

Thu, the Seven Spanish Angels are symbolic of the seven seals or seven chakras that must be opened. When the seals are opened the Seven Spanish Angels will carry us home.

Man needs to clear and open the seven chakras of the body in order to transcend to the fourth and higher dimensions.

The chakras are in the shape of trumpets and are energy vortices that run in  front of as well as behind the individual physical body. The back chakras represent our past and the front ,our future. Most of us have cleared our front chakras, but much work needs to be done on the back chakras, or our past.

The first chakra is the root chakra and deals with overcoming fear and trust issues and staying grounded. These are our basic instincts and deal with survival.

The second chakra is the chakra dealing with sexual energy and sacredness, balancing energy and controlling our emotions.

The third or Solar Plexus chakra where we learn to release the desire to control every situation and person in our life. Once this dimension is mastered we no longer feel we need to control everyone and everything.

The Heart Chakra: or 4th Dimension:  is where we learn self love and love for others. We learn to set healthy boundaries and maintain a balance of giving and receiving and realize everything serves a purpose and we become more nonjudgmental.  

The  Throat Chakra: 5th Dimension: deals with our integrity and we learn to be truthful, act with integrity and become more loving  using words to convey our feelings in a more compassionate way, and by doing so our listening skills increase dramatically.

The Spiritual Eye Chakra: 6th Dimension: By opening our third eye chakra we increase our ability to be more discerning  and we become able to see more clearly and are able to access truth, intuitiveness and become more sensitive to the divinity of others, while being open also to negativity others may send our way.

The 7th Crown Chakra: The crown chakra  enables us to be in this world, but not bound to it, by it we are able to transcend our physical bodies and unite with all that is Holy and reunite with our Christ Consciousness. By it we move into Self Mastery and become more Christ like ,which enables us to perform the deeds Christ himself performed.   

This is where the healing needs to take place so we can thus raise ourselves from the “dead”. Thus we will be raised in Christ and be reborn intothe Christ Consciousness.

There are procedures which can be implemented to advance our spiritual growth. The first and most important is prayer. We need spiritual guidance to assist us in determining the proper path we need to follow.

We don’t know the way if the wisdom of a higher source isn’t consulted, when we open ourselves to universal knowledge, we are only consulting our Higher Self or our Christ Consciousness, the knowledge of all things is within us, all we need to do is quiet the mind and listen.

We do that by praying and meditating. Prayer will guide us if we only listen and leave our minds open to all possibilities and paths of enlightenment.

Hurricane Isaac; A Prophet?


An interesting set of circumstances occurred before and during The Republican National Convention. The convention was scheduled to take place in Tampa Florida during the height of the hurricane season. This in itself took a lot of faith , not only on the part of the republicans , but the city of Tampa as well. A lot was riding on the successful outcome of the convention.

The republicans needed everything to go as smoothly as possible to enable their candidates to put forth the best image possible for the upcoming election, and the Tampa Bay area wanted to showcase the area to enable them to draw as many tourists as possible  to boost the local economy.

A hurricane would have a negative and devastating effect on both endeavors. It was a huge gamble.

The most important election the United States has ever had  hangs in the balance. There is little doubt, the future of not only the U.S., but the entire free world will be forever changed as a result of the upcoming election.

We have reached a critical time in the history of the world. In the next couple of months we will decide if freedom will continue or if the world’s people will slip back into serfdom and be dominated by big government, thus destroying many of the freedoms and privileges we have today.

Even considering that the end of August is the the peak of hurricane season, what are the chances of a major hurricane striking the Tampa area on the exact day the RNC convention is scheduled to start? Not only was it supposed to hit Tampa, but it’s path took it through the center of Florida, the destruction could have been massive.

As time wore on ,the gamble paid off, the path changed and Tampa was spared. It’s new target was New Orleans, Louisiana .  It’s arrival slated exactly seven years to the day after Katrina hit New Orleans, one of the most destructive hurricanes to ever strike the continental United States.

During it’s sojourn through Florida, the area most affected was Miami-Dade and Palm Bach Counties,an area of extreme liberal policies, leaving several inches of rain in it’s wake,and resulting in massive flooding and power outages.

As it approached New Orleans, luckily the hurricane only reached category one status, making it a relatively weak storm, nothing like Katrina. However as it entered Louisiana, it slowed and hung in the area for hours, as a result, as much as 36 inches of rain fell over the New Orleans area. Again much flooding resulted.

Being one who doesn’t believe in coincidences, I began to wonder what this all meant. As a result I began to look at where it did and didn’t do most of the damage.

Taking into account the vast differences between the two political philosophies in America today, and the timing of the hurricane, there had to be a connection. There are no accidents in life and everything happens for a reason.

I had just finished reading the Harbinger, a book that describes why certain events are happening today as a result of our falling from grace due to many no longer having a strong  belief in God, things started to fall into place.

I’m not saying liberals are bad people and need to be destroyed and all conservatives are saintly , quite the contrary. There are good and bad apples on both side of the fence.

It’s the philosophy that is to blame. Many people no longer know what is true and what works to make life successful, relying on false teachings and philosophies. Many liberals and conservatives of today are not the liberals and conservatives of days gone by. No wonder their lives are so messed up.

There are certain laws of nature , or God’s Laws which must be followed and obeyed if one is to have a successful and productive life. Such laws as eating healthy and obeying the law of gravity are just as important to obey as laws of morality and fair play.

The number seven has special spiritual connotations in the spiritual world and the fact that this hurricane was striking New Orleans exactly seven years to the day after Katrina and at the beginning of Southern Decadence, a holiday that is celebrated in New Orleans every year at this time made coincidence seem out of the question.

I also find it interesting that the name of the hurricane is Isaac, a prophet in both the Christian and Islamic world, all of this when taken into consideration makes one wonder if it is some kind of foreboding warning that we all need to heed.

Time will tell, and as I said I’m not placing blame on any one group of people, if it is a warning, then we all have had a part in it.
