Finding Inner Balance


       What happens when we blame the world for our worries? When we release our own personal responsibility and say that it was their fault. Nothing good comes from that. It enters you into a vicious cycle of negativity. It is a cycle that is so very hard to get out of. There has been times in my life wen I too blamed the world for my stresses. I pushed it off on other people. Well if I was only born into a rich family perhaps my life would have been better. That too is a vicious cycle of thought. Assuming money equals happiness and an easy life. It completely does not. Sure it can help in some matters. Maybe you won't have to worry about bills, maybe you can take vacations and buy things. But assuming that money wipes away all worries is a bullshit assumption. In fact on earth we all have worries. The animals have worries for survival because of humanities selfish reign on the environment. The plants and trees have worries of being demolished. Mother earth has worries for her children which call her home. While we are here on earth, there is no escape from worry. There is only finding a way around it. Finding the inner power to move above your worries. There is a saying I heard before, we don't ever truly get rid of our demons, we learn to live above them. That rings so true here in this topic. I don't truly mean demons as evil entities. I mean demons as in negative thought patterns, worry, stress, and the shadow sides of ourselves. As all things have a light and a dark.

        I come to the topic in my mind of the Yin Yang symbol. The original concept of yin and yang came from the observation of nature and the environment. "Yin" originally referred to the shady side of a slope while "yang" referred to the sunny side. Later, this thinking was used in understanding other things, which occurred in pairs and had complementary and opposing characteristics in nature. Some examples include: sky and earth, day and night, water and fire, active and passive, male and female and so on. Working with these ideas, ancient people recognized nearly all things could have yin and yang properties. Yin and yang can describe two relative aspects of the same phenomena such as the example of the slope, or they can describe two different objects like sky and earth. So in this it describes the negative and positive. It is in finding the perfect balance when we reach the stage of harmony in our lives. When we push the blame, we are not seeing our true potential. We are looking too much at the one side, and it throws the balance off. So many of us on earth are living our daily lives out of balance. The thoughts of racism comes to mind, only seeing the smaller picture which would be the differences. That's an imbalance because doing so does not see the similarities Hence, yin and yang balance.

        I come to this topic because during readings so many times there is the reminder of this imbalance in our world. So many times in various different topics are there only one side and it is out of balance. People blaming others for the wrong things about their lives to the point that they cannot see that it is this perception of the world that is what THEY are doing wrong. The two main topics come from Love and Money. Love issues and financial issues are the two main topics which people cannot see their own fault. This doesn't mean blame yourself, but it certainly doesn't mean blame others either. Blame nobody is the key. Move above the blaming to find the resolution to the problems.

        As some of you know, I practice witchcraft. I personally try my hardest to refrain from spells which are deemed as more negative. For example, curses, manipulating others, going against free will, etc. But during readings sometimes these topics come up, and when they do I find a common occurence. So often people will automatically blame the negative aspects of their lives on witchcraft or demons spreading evil through their lives. When they don't see that they're the one's living in that negativity. They are not harnessing the soul power that is within them. They're so blocked by the negative energies that they cannot see just how strong they are. Let's take a moment right now to consider times in our lives when we have done this? Because we've all fallen prey to this form of negative thinking and we have all been in the moments of unbalance within the yin and yang concept. Take a moment to stop reading after this sentence. Contemplate how you may have pushed the blame at some point in your past and how you may have let the negative energies in through thought?

        Alright let's move past all of that now that, hopefully, you understand this vicious cycle. Let's move to ways we can move above it. How can we move above our demons, metaphorically speaking. How can we find this yin and yang balance? Hopefully you've already began the first part. Realizing how we do not take personal responsibility for the things in our lives. Realizing that through negative energy that we are welcoming into our lives, we attract so much more negative energy. Realizing that you need to push past that and move onward towards soul empowerment so that you can move above the negative focuses onto a higher perspective.

        Within this higher perspective we get a chance to observe our lives from a higher view. Let's say for example there are financial burdens. You're tight on cash, and barely have enough to pay your bills. The bright side is, your bills are paid. Now how can you work towards bringing in more income? Instead of focusing on the negative, see the positive. Instead of focusing on the bills, see the possible solutions. Another example would be during a failed relationship. Instead of focusing on that relationship try to figure out if it can be fixed. If it cannot, then move onward and realize that there could be a great lesson in this. And you'll be led to an even greater relationship. Another example would be fighting in an existing relationship. Instead of focusing on the differences between the both of you, try to see the positive. Instead of focusing on the flaws of the other person, try to point out the positive aspects of them in your mind. Try to see above the conflict to a resolution. In that way we've moved above the negative, and have welcomed in the positive. The same goes for a negative work environment. Maybe those work issues are empowering you to be stronger. Maybe it is empowering you to look at what you really want to do for your work, and giving you the strength to go after your heart's desires.

         I bring us to the topic of meditation. This gives us time for clarity and a time to clear our minds. Pick a time in your day, no matter how small or large the time frame, and sit in contemplation. Sit and try to meditate. If a thought comes in your mind let it come, but then let it go. Let them flow in and then flow right on back out. Maybe play some calming music. You can also skygaze. Look at the passing clouds, the twinkling stars and shining moon. Water gazing is another good thing to do. Lose yourself in the motions of the running water. Go to a lake, river, ocean, etc. and feel the power of the water. Stare out into the expanse of water and get lost in the motions, it will usually enter you into a soft trance like state. Firegazing is another good way, such as staring at a lit candle or a at a bonfire or fireplace. You can also watch the wind blowing through the trees. Gazing at the back and forth sway of nature. During those moments we welcome in a positive flow of energy which supports us and continues to support us throughout our day.

       Now we move onto another tip which is keeping a gratitude journal Writing down, or acknowledging, what are the good aspects of each day. Maybe you can only think of one. Maybe you had a cup of coffee or tea in the morning and it was good. Log it down no matter how simple. The more you do this, the more you will notice you will begin to see the positive aspects of your life. Therefore you will be moving above the negative. You will be attracting more positive. It is one of the strongest ways out of the vicious cycle. This will bring us into an awareness. Log down or acknowledge within your mind the positive parts of your life, and realize how the negative aspects may have serve to empower you. That is the key my friend!! Using the negative aspects to empower you to move above it. Through that aspect we find the yin and yang balance. We mind the harmonic stage and the soul power. I hope this article has empowered you to begin your journey. If you have anything you'd like to share please add it in the comments. I am sending all of you many Cosmic Blessings.

Until Next Time,
