THROWBACK THURSDAY VIDEO: Opportunity and Change

Here’s an “oldie but goodie” musing from Rosemary. This one is particularly good to repeat at this time of the Cardinal Grand Cross with all its transformational energy and an upcoming solar eclipse! These are opportunities if you are ready and willing to accept them!

Doorways of Opportunity—Richard’s Commentary

I always enjoy these messages from The Divine Feminine. I’ve heard and read many over the years I’ve spent at Rosemary’s side. They are always rich with wisdom yet well grounded and practical. And because I’ve heard so many I also know they are genuine. So I pay attention when they speak through Rosemary!

The key to this message is in the very first lines: The flames are licking at the Doors of Change.  Those who fear change are trying to engulf the opportunities in flames so that you and others will not walk through them.  Do not let these fear-mongers paralyze you.

Fear is one of the chief emotions that impacts our willingness, even our very ability to change. We fear change because we don’t know what is on the other side of that door. We know what is on this side and too often we are either too comfortable or too complacent with the status quo to consider what may be on the other side, even if it could be wonderful!

The trouble with comfort and complacency is the inevitability of change. The Divine Feminine say: The evolutionary forces of the Universe are not static.  They are always and forever moving forward, taking with them those who are connected to growth and leaving behind those who wish to go backward, which is the same as attempting to stand still.  There is no standing still.  There is only moving forward or being swamped by the Tides of Change.

Galaxy M106-no labelThe status quo cannot stand against these formidable tides. Consider some of the Hubble pictures Rosemary posts in her Ezine! I’ve included one here (Galaxy M106) to illustrate this point. Imagine the immensity and the enormous energy represented in this galactic “whirlpool.” This is the energy of change alive in the Universe! Yes, “resistance is futile”! We live in a dynamic Universe and The Divine Feminine are suggesting, warning, that if we try to stand still we will be inundated.

There is another force that works to keep us in fear of change; that force is greed. For many the status quo means continued profits; change may impact those profits. Again, the opportunity on the other side of the doorway is veiled; there may be risk involved. There is less risk in the status quo, right? Yes, if the only concern is for the short term; this quarter’s over last quarter’s and last year’s quarter returns. But can the forces of greed resist the coming changes any better than the forces of fear?

Just as change and opportunity are two sides of the same coin, we can look at fear and greed in the same way. Greed is a fear of not having enough; it is born from a sense of lack. Much is never enough. Too much is better but still not enough! There is a strong resemblance here among change, fear and greed.

We have to step through this doorway, even as the flames of fear and greed lick the frame and turn us away. Opportunity is the only way to approach change. Yes, there are unknowns beyond the doorway; yes, there are risks that must be faced. But the changes are coming, are here, whether we resist them or not. It is far better to ride the tide of this transformative time and rise with the opportunities that flow our way. Seize them, not as life lines, not out of greed or the need for gain, but for advancement, for the evolution of humanity, of the Universe. The force of evolution is here and will press on with us or without us.

Are you ready for the evolutionary ride of your life? Grab hold!

ROSEMARY’S EXPLORATION: Doorways of Opportunity

This week’s message is from The Divine Feminine for us:

“Dear Ones,

The flames are licking at the Doors of Change.  Those who fear change are trying to engulf the opportunities in flames so that you and others will not walk through them.  Do not let these fear-mongers paralyze you.

Change and Opportunity are two sides of the same coin, of the same door.  Opportunity is the invitation to Change.  Every time you say ‘no’ to Change you are leaving a Doorway to Opportunity closed.  Every time you ignore or say ‘no’ to Opportunity you are saying ‘yes’ to everything staying the same.

Is there something in your life that you wish to Change?  Then you must walk through a Door of Opportunity or there will be no Change.

Are you seeking Opportunities in your life?  Then you must Change something.

Those who prevent change also prevent opportunities from being realized.  If you are one who wishes to preserve the status quo then you are not ready for increased Prosperity and Abundance in your life.

Think about the energy it takes to resist Change.  The evolutionary forces of the Universe are not static.  They are always and forever moving forward, taking with them those who are connected to growth and leaving behind those who wish to go backward, which is the same as attempting to stand still.  There is no standing still.  There is only moving forward or being swamped by the Tides of Change.

In every moment cells in your body are changing.  With every thought your brain is changing.  Energetically, your field is changing with every thought, feeling, heartbeat.  What vibration are you emanating as these changes take place?  You are changing and you are constantly generating an energy field around you.  Your choices create the energy vibrational frequency of your field.  What energy field are you choosing to present to the world?

Think about the people you have attracted to your energy field.  Do they emanate the vibrational frequency that you wish to share?  Think about the situations in your life right now.  Are they what you wish to manifest in your world?

Now is the time for you to consciously choose the Opportunities you wish to pursue.  What do you desire to Change?  Which Doorway of Opportunity will bring about that Change?  And what must you Change to take advantage of that Opportunity.

Opportunity and Change.

The only way forward is to walk through the Doorway.

And so it is.”

We are all being called to Change in these turbulent times.  What used to work no longer brings the same result.  The thoughts that have been rolling around in our heads are now seeming to be even more potent in creating the reality in which we dwell.  Those of us who wish to live a Conscious Life are being called to examine those thoughts and choose which ones get to stay around and which ones we release.

What Doorways of Opportunity have been presented to you lately?  Are you considering them or are you turning away?  Look again.  And if you can’t see the Opportunities could it be that you are blinded by a resistance to Change?

Resistance is futile.

Now is the time for Transformation.

Thoughts to ponder…

ROSEMARY’S EXPLORATION: Are You Ready?

Did you think you could relax because you made it through December 21, 2012?  Think again!

The Shift has begun.  Time has been speeding up for years and we’re moving ahead at an amazing pace.  It’s time to grow, to transform, to evolve.  Hold onto your hat!

Sometimes we think about ‘readiness’ as preparing for all the disasters that are possible in the days ahead.  My little sister works for the Red Cross and has a masters degree in Disaster Management.  She knows about preparing for and dealing with disasters.  But are we really preparing for disasters or for greater, more abundant and spectacular Life?  Let’s get ready for that and leave the disasters to the Red Cross.

Get ready for the Doors of Opportunity to be opened to you, for they are present in every moment if you just look for them.  Your work is to be ready to walk through that open door.  Here’s how to get ready.

First, learn to focus your attention in this Present Moment NOW.  Are you worried about something that might happen in the future?  That possible disaster?  Or even that fantasy of something out there at ‘someday’?  Bring your attention and, thus, your energy, into this Present Moment, for this is where you live and from whence comes all manifestation.

Next, live your Purpose.  Have you learned what your Life Purpose is?  Do you know why your Soul chose to incarnate in your particular body with your particular history at this particular moment?  Discover your Purpose and live it with Passion.  There’s no time now to waste waiting for ‘someday’ to arrive so you can finally live your Purpose.  Someday has arrived and you are looking at it now – today.

The third step is to assess your Present Reality.  What thoughts are winning your attention and are they negative or supportive of your growth?  Are there limiting beliefs at work in your life that are blocking you from happiness and growth?  Have you done the personal development work that clears the blocks from your path and are you sure that you are not living out someone else’s expectations for you?  Do you have some old tapes playing in your unconscious mind that belong in the past or to someone else?  Are you being honest with yourself about who you really are?  Have you disowned your power?

The Doors of Opportunity are opening for you.  You can see them when you look around you in wonder and awe at the magnificent, abundant Universe that gives to you in ways that are much grander than anything you can imagine.  When you search for the lesson in whatever is your present reality you receive the gift that is available to you.  Walk through the Doorway and into the Light.

Our friend was in a serious car accident shortly after the actor, Christopher Reeve, had his accident that left him paralyzed.  Her injury was similar to Reeve’s but she recovered fully.  As she claimed, she was ‘ready for anything and all prayed up!’  She didn’t rail against the Universe for putting her in that situation and she can use that story to help others in their personal development because she looked for the lesson and walked through a Doorway of Opportunity.

Do you know anyone who says that some event in their life that we might judge to be ‘tragic,’ like illness or job loss or financial problems or natural disaster, turned out to be the best thing that ever happened to them?  Not everyone can say that about everything that happens, but when you view the event as a gift that holds a Doorway of Opportunity, you want to be ready to walk through that door!

Remember:

  1. Present Moment
  2. Purpose & Passion
  3. Present Reality

Get ready!  Do the personal work.  And when you see the open door, walk through it!

INSPIRATION: Are You Flipping Out Over Something?

It seems today as if there is always something to ‘Flip Out’ over!  What has you feeling this way today?

I sometimes hear clients longing for simpler lives or less stress or at least less drama in their lives, but they are really wishing for something to change about their circumstances without a thought to how they can change themselves.

Flipping Out happens when we don’t have enough resources in our tool box to deal with what is happening in our environment.  If you can reach into your Resource Tool Box and pull out just what you need to do in this circumstance, then you just do that and there’s no need to get too excited.  But how often are you perfectly prepared for exactly what is going on?

Let me say here that I am not talking about going into denial and pretending that nothing big is happening!  Sticking your fingers in your ear and singing, ‘La, la, la, la!’ won’t manage the stress of the circumstances, although, I admit, sometimes that seems like an attractive behavior choice.  Denial invites the Universe to keep bringing the lesson to us, over and over again, with perhaps more severity each time until we learn what we are to learn.

What tools have you been developing to prepare you for whatever might come your way?  Are you on a path of constant personal growth, seeking new skills, finding new opportunities to explore ideas?  Are you committed to your own personal, spiritual growth as a journey of exploration?  How you answer these questions will determine how well you can handle what happens around you.

Just as an athlete doesn’t wake up one morning and decide to win a gold medal in discus throwing without training for that exact sport, so, too, must you train for the circumstances that haven’t yet come into your life.

When the doctor says, ‘There’s something of concern going on here,’ or you get the phone call that, ‘There’s been an accident,’ how will you respond?

I pray that you never hear those words but it could be something else that throws you for a loop and the resources must already be available to you or you will find it more difficult to cope.

So what are you doing today, this week, this year to expand the tools in your Resource Tool Box?  Are you taking a class?  Working with a coach/counselor?  Reading self-help books?  In a group with speakers who teach you tools?  Attending seminars and conferences with content-rich programs for personal growth?

This is not an activity that can be postponed indefinitely!  Now is the time to prevent Flip Out!

Learning meditation can be a great start.  Breathe, hit the pause button, take a moment to collect yourself.  Allow thoughts to arise but to keep flowing onward, without attaching to the thoughts.  Give yourself permission to focus on your breath and to let go of thoughts and emotions that come up for you.  Give yourself permission to simply BE.

Sign up for a class on a psychological or spiritual topic that intrigues you.  Read a book that someone has recommended to you.  Find a group of explorers that you can join to study new ideas.  Work with a coach who can help you to develop the tools that are best for you.

Fill up the Resource Tool Box and you’ll be ready if and when something happens.  Won’t it be nice to have the confidence of knowing that, even if you never need to use the tools, you won’t have to resort to ‘Flipping Out’?
