What is the Perfect Form of Government?

There are many types of government to choose from and lately there are some who believe the US should shift from a Republic to more of a Democracy or Socialism.  What is the best?

According to those who channel the spirits; Abraham-Hicks and The Light Collective, we are spirits having a human experience.  We are here to learn. It could be that you’ve come here to learn how to speak up for yourself, learn how to listen, love yourself.  In fact, you could have several themes that you are trying to learn from. The one thing that both sources say that is behind it all is that you have free will. That means you are free to choose whether or not you want to go along with whatever is happening in your life. For example:  Are you learning to speak up for yourself or choosing not to? Have you learned to love your handicap and how overweight you are or are you choosing to be angry at the world? There are hundreds of examples that I could list but you’re probably wondering what that has to do with government.

If free will is at the core of learning from our experiences then it’s only logical that freedom should be part of our government.  So what is the perfect form of government according to Abraham?

It would be a government that allows you freedom to be or have as you want.” However, that will come only when there is an understanding of how you are getting what you are getting.  Government, for the most part, has become one of rules and regulations primarily established to protect one of you from the other of you. “When you come to understand that you invite through thought, then you will not feel so much need for all of that restriction, and then your government can be established as it was begun –more to offer services rather than restriction or control.”

What is Abraham referring to here? They are referring to the Law of Attraction. Our thoughts bring about our outcome.  If you are focused on debt and unemployment, then that is what you’ll get more of.  If you find someone irritating, you then will go about observing and collecting evidence to support your view without taking into account the other 90% of the time the person is quite nice. It’s all a matter of perspective.  You can learn more about the Law of Attraction from Esther and Jerry Hicks.  The movie, The Secret, was taken from their channel work.

Oh and by the way, no one makes you angry or irritates you.  You make yourself angry and irritable.

Love Equals Caring as much as Caring Equals Love

Let’s make a distinction about love. There’s the romantic love that is felt between two people, the love of your children, family and friends. But caring encompasses a broader sense of love in that it’s the love of all that is. It’s the love of life and everything we experience in it.

We show kindness and caring to one another through the simple act of opening a door for someone, asking how someone is doing and actually listening to their response, even cleaning up after yourself so that others won’t have to deal with your mess.  These are but a few of the everyday acts of caring that we demonstrate to one another. The capacity to care and be cared for is a human strength. It’s what connects us to one another.

When you don’t demonstrate care to others consistently, life loses its color and connection. You may end up feeling less engaged with those around you. If you’re not making a point to be caring of others in your life, the people around you don’t feel cared for, love, appreciated, respected or engaged by you at the heart level. When this happens they may contact you less frequently, trust you less, buy from you less, and leave you more. It’s an easy formula to figure out: care more, connect more.

Our drive for caring, in a broad sense, makes us feel that we are safe, worthy, and loved, through our own actions and the actions of others, we are cared for.  Caring is something you do and receive.

Of all the human drives, caring seems to get the least attention. Instead, caring’s sexier sister, Love, gets all the attention, despite the fact that it’s probably impossible to feel or demonstrate love without caring.  Plus you likely wouldn’t be kind if you didn’t care. Kindness, caring, love - as you can see they’re all connected.   

We’re all hardwired to demonstrate care for others. Our brains are remarkably well equipped biologically to relate to and care for others’ emotions and experiences. What that means is our brains are built to mimic that which we see and feel in others. It’s why when you walk into a room you pick up the energy of the room and your brain starts to mimic it whether it’s a sad or happy occasion. The more we experience that state and behavior the more we start to mimic it. So if we constantly see others behaving a certain way our brains will likely tell us to mimic that behavior. It’s a key reason why kids smoke when others smoke, why infants smile when their moms smile, and why so many of us yawn or feel impatient when someone else does. We feel what we see.

Caring is more than just a nice action. It’s the basis for our human existence and experience and the foundation that makes love possible.

5 Ways to Know You are being True to Your Self

Do you sometimes feel irritable, angry, off, frustrated, agitated or out-of-sorts and have no explanation for it? Perhaps it’s because you’ve lost sight of what makes you come alive and are living someone else’s expectations of you instead of following your own voice.

Don’t compromise yourself. You are all you’ve got.” ~ Janis Joplin

To live in consistent alignment with whom you are, how you want to be perceived and what you want to become takes courage and self respect to stand grounded in your own space.
So how do you know if you’re being true to yourself? What does it look like? What does it feel like?
Here are the top 5 from my perspective.
1.   You stand and walk more confidently.

2.   Your are filled with positive energy

3.   You seem to have a skip in your step and a song in your heart

4.   Your thoughts and words are in sync with who you are. No disconnect

5.   You feel good about yourself as if you are finally whole and complete
If you are not in being true to yourself here are some suggestions on how to get there.
-Think more of yourself and demand that your actions be congruent with the best of who you know you can be.
-Act each day in congruence with your self-defined image so that you feel authentic, proud, complete, fulfilled and trustworthy to show up in every situation as the unique, gifted true you.
Remember your self-image is and always has been chosen by no one other than you.
Create the vision for which you can be and actually be that vision.

The power plant doesn’t have energy, it generates energy. Choose the color of your own sky.

Let the Political Bashing Begin

The political season is in full swing and with it comes the name calling, bashing, insults, assumptions, accusations that we’ve come to loathe. It’s not the way that I was raised to get your point across but that’s what it’s come down to.  Basically it’s fear.  Each side will accuse and bash the other side to take the heat off them no matter if it’s the truth or not.  It sells.  People listen.  It gets votes. The thought has been put out there and soon the media can run an entire segment on a “what if, maybe or assumption.” That’s not good journalism in my opinion and I’d say EVERY media outlet is guilty of it at one time or another.

The republicans will bash the Obama Administration on its failed policies and the democrats bash Romney on his wealth.  Let’s back up a moment and take a look at this. First you have to realize that each candidate has their own unique gifts that he brings to the table because the greater the gift the greater the challenge that comes with it. The trick for each is staying within their gift because when the challenge of the gift overshadows the gift it becomes a hindrance. The gift is no longer shining and instead all that is showing up is the challenge of it.  The person has lost touch with what makes him stand out. All is not lost. He can still get his groove back when he actively weaves back into his gift. 

I don’t’ know much about Mitt Romney but his gift thus far is being able to make money. He’s a businessman and knows the ins and outs of starting, employing, maintaining and growing a business. As with all businessmen you have your ups and downs that you learn from. The market keeps changing and you have to change with it.

Therefore one of his gifts according the Core Passion code would be Power. He is the C. E O., General, and Authority figure. When in his gift he demands control. His creed is truth, honesty and results. He has the strength and courage to undertake large projects, financial risks, and the management of large organizations. He’s able to see the larger picture as well as small details. His challenge would be being intimidating and consumed by the acquisition of wealth. When he’s in his gift he’s assertive, problem-solver, good–at-management and strives for excellence. When he’s in the challenge of his gift he’d be apathetic, misdirected, apathetic and indifferent to name a few.

Obama has been in office for quite some time so his gifts are more identifiable.  He has the gift of communication, compassion, and inspiration. In other words he’s able to convince, persuade and ignite action that revolves around global issues. However, I’d say his gift of compassion is his strongest one.  It means he’s the master teacher. That doesn’t mean he has to be in front of a room to teach, he can teach by example. People strong in compassion have an inner driving force of enlightened information that they need to share with the world. His quest would be to share this knowingness with the masses. His gift would be speaking from the heart and humility and seeing beyond the situations to the good of all people. His challenge is detachment (gets too involved); setting healthy boundaries, expressing integrity in all he does and judging others that don’t share his vision.  When he’s in his gift he’s heart full, insightful and contributing. When he’s in his challenge he’s disconnected, negligent, self-important, inexperienced, opinionated, dogmatic and pompous.

To sum up, coming from a business back ground you always need a vision first, something to build your action plan around.  But neither will work without the other.  When you put the two together you have one who has the vision and one who is an action taker. Too bad we couldn’t get both on the same team. Imagine if we did have everyone one on the same team, working together for the same vision. It’s happened before and it can be done again.

Just remember no one is perfect. Each candidate has their own gifts and if you love the gift you also have to love the challenge that comes with it because it won’t always be pretty.

I hope I gave you some insightful information to help you make a better informed decision on your candidate choice.
