When Is It Okay to Feel Really Terrible?

Durga-Magnetta-When-Is-It-Ok-to-Really-Feel-Terrible When Is It Okay to Feel Really Terrible?

The more we believe that our frequency is responsible for our reality, the more we become afraid of the moments when we feel less than cheerful. These are usually the moments we feel we can’t afford to be down. I.e. I need to raise my frequency so I can pay my bills.

Herein lies the dilemma. When we’re experiencing an off day emotionally, we then decided it is wrong, and attempt to fight it in an effort to change it. This is really just adding fuel to the fire.

Have you ever left an inspirational seminar or a retreat only to find that the days after are emotionally heavy and maybe even depressive? This is because you had spent time in a heightened frequency and raised the bar of what you expect for yourself and your life by setting new intentions and goals. When a person does this, it creates emotional upheaval and a systematic purging of all that was holding the lesser reality in place.

I’ve referred to it in the past as a garbage day of the soul. As the limiting or negative belief structures leave a person, they will feel the lower energetic qualities of them move out of their system.

This is where we give thanks and find appreciation for the less than cheerful emotional energetic stream of energy. If we look at it this way you can see the importance of not making it a bad thing or fighting it.

The best thing to do when this happens is to practice taking a step back from them and remind yourself that although you feel this way, there are still a lot of blessings to be thankful for. Take on the role of loving parent and gently redirect your thought process back to something more rational and positive. In one moment you could feel the particular issue is just the end of the world. An hour later for no apparent reason you could feel that the same issue isn’t as bad as you thought it was when the toxicity was leaving.

If you’re experiencing this level of negativity appear over an issue, it only means that you just have not yet found the right solution.

Discover a Life Changing Element We Are Forgetting to Add to Our Intention Setting

Discover a Life Changing Element We Are Forgetting to Add to Our Intention Setting Discover a Life Changing Element We Are Forgetting to Add to Our Intention Setting

At this point in my life I cannot imagine not working with the power of intention on a daily basis. I find it to be a phenomenal tool when it comes to getting things done. Not only do I usually experience the best possible outcome, I receive it in the best possible way.

 

I have also noticed that I am spiritually guided to set intentions when faced with new challenges. I’ll hear a sentence enter my thought process that asks, “What is your intention for ______?”. For the most part, anything that enters our minds that is outside of regular habitual thinking is the guidance of spirit. This would be the point where I stop and get clear over what I would like to see unfold. This does not mean that things go my way all the time. At the very least intention setting makes it possible for me to let go of the fear around an impending situation. I can release the contemplation out of my mind and move forward with optimism.

Using Humor to Create Empowerment

Using Humor to Create Empowerment Using Humor to Create Empowerment

Humor has the power to transform your experience with a difficult issue from below it (victimized), to above it (empowered). You may have had the experience of finding an experience funny that you had found upsetting in the past. If this is the case, then you are most likely healed and over what happened.

       

If you were able to view your life like a movie or play, you could see the natural flow of events go from happy to sad, easy to hard, everything in between and back again. It is a somewhat predictable cycle, though the circumstances do change and may surprise you.

       

William Shakespeare was criticized for putting humor in some of his plays when people felt the situation called for more of a serious mood. It came across as insensitive or inappropriate. Was it really? Or was it just skipping ahead a bit because from a higher perspective he knew that it was all just an illusion of the same cycles playing out? He figured he may as well have fun with what was happening if he was able to.

 

Joan Rivers once said, “Everything is funny.” While she created a lot of amazing success in her life, she was not spared the heart wrenching devastation many face in the course of a lifetime.

 

While I did not always enjoy her style of humor, I have a great appreciation for her intelligence and wisdom. She knew that the value of humor went well beyond the entertainment industry. It is a profound tool that can be used to come back from the depths of sorrow.

One Go-to Mantra That Truly Works Wonders

durga-magnetta-one-go-to-mantra-that-truly-works-wonders One Go-to Mantra That Truly Works Wonders
Like many, I take my yoga practice off the mat. I study life in search of greater wisdom and truth. Some people show me what I need to work on and others set an example of where I would like to be in my personal development.


The store I currently work part-time for recently got a new manager. This lady started managing after a long line of her predecessors quit, due to the incredible amount of pressure the job put on them. Every time I work with her she seems to be in great spirits, always smiling and joking.


While I have a great number of skills that will help me to find inner peace, she seemed to have a much greater grasp on it. I often times wondered how she so easily maintained a positive mindset knowing how much work she was responsible for.


It was easy to understand why the others seemed constantly frazzled and stressed. The way this particular business is structured keeps everyone in the fear of losing their jobs and with that their livelihood.

Why People Are Afraid to Truly Experience Inner Peace

durga-magnetta-why-people-are-truly-afraid-to-experience-inner-peace
Most people really like the concept of achieving inner peace. They enjoy imagining a life without as much stress and inner turmoil. When it comes right down to achieving this experience there are a few issues that get in the way.


True inner peace is not something you can conceptualize with your mind. Is not actually a mind process at all. To access and experience true inner peace you need to be able to drop out of thinking about anything. This is usually the part of the process where people get stuck.


Very simply put, people don't feel they can trust anything that they can't wrap their minds around. Unfortunately this includes inner peace. If there is a topic or an issue that someone feels they don't understand, they no longer feel in control of the situation. When they don't feel in control of the situation they don't feel safe.


When this happens there are usually two major issues involved. The first is that there's some sort of buildup of trauma that perpetually causes them not to feel safe outside of controlling the situation. This is probably the most common. In this case, it is possible to release the traumatic energetic blockages lying in a persons system using the technique of meditation. That is another article for another time.


The other possibility is that they are  caught up and narcissistic programming that will fundamentally stop them from doing anything they don't feel they're in control of. These cases are a little more rare.

Are We Meant to Push Past Being Stuck?

durga-magnetta-are-we-meant-to-push-past-being-stuck
It is hard to feel stuck and unmotivated. Especially in matters of career and business. Not only are things not progressing but we may also feel like we are letting ourselves down by not taking action.


There is such a thing as being in the flow. This is when we are flooded with inspiration. It flows freely accompanied by the drive to take action. I have found in the past that these experiences come along with bursts of energy. Taking action feels more like a rush or a buzz.


As with many things there is no black-and-white answer to this question. I can only share my experience and hope that it helps someone. I have found that the lull of activity is there for reason. Maybe it's time to take a break or focus on other areas of life.


Pushing against the stagnancy often times leads to poor results. Whatever you come up with during that time is probably not going to be your best work. This, in combination with the lack of productivity can feel very depressing.


I feel that during these times productivity can be found in other areas. Maybe we need to focus on her health or well-being. There's usually some other area of life calling our attention. There could be more information we need before we can move forward in a  successful way.

Avoid This Major Road-Block to Peace and Well Being

durga-magneta-avoid-this-major-roadblock-to-peace-and-well-being

If you are like me, you have spent several years studying many different paths to oneness and wellbeing. We have so much amazing information regarding personal liberation right at our fingertips.

 

When we are implementing these teachings, we usually feel our best or at least a lot better. We feel more connected to our souls and maintain clarity of perception. This usually shows up in our bodies and personal success levels.

 

For most people, their daily spiritual practice and routine diminishes and the knowledge fades over time. Life takes over and its demands on our time and attention move the practice to the back burner. When this happens, we start to forget the life changing phrases and clarifying cliff notes that had kept us on track.

How We Are Feeding Our Pain Without Knowing

Durga-Magnetta-how-we-are-feeding-our-pain-without-knowing

With the many obstacles we face on a daily basis, it is easy to fall victim to negativity and fear. The level of possible difficulty we may need to face in life knows no limit. Not assuming the worst case scenario can be difficult.

 
There are two major reasons for this. First, it is the job of the left-logic side of the brain to assess all possible outcomes in an effort to prepare us and protect us against what is to come. Secondly, it is a chance for our pain bodies to feed.

 

While watching this process in myself, I noticed that my mind brought several different negative outcomes and inspired fear and dread when I was faced with even simple changes and obstacles. I had to deliberately change the course of things if I wanted to be solution oriented.

 

As people we end up stewing over possible negative outcomes before seeing that the situation is working itself out. For the most part, things work out in the best possible way. Yet we will fall prey to this mechanism almost every time we are faced with change.

Durga-Magnetta-How-to-create-and-maintain-relationship-harmony

Are you tired of arguments and combating anger from your partner?


Do you ever wish that there was some piece of magic that could take the turbulence out of your relationship so you could enjoy it more?


Well there is! This piece of magic is called good karma, and it can be used to create happiness and harmony in your relationships.


Despite popular belief karma is actually your friend, or it can be if you learn to use it to your advantage. To do this we must change our strategy and the beliefs we have about karma.


This means we are going from 'an eye for an eye' concept, to giving love and compassion and having it come back to you. This approach not only works, but it works right away and without saying a word.

Discovering the Divine Gift and Abandonment Isolation

Discovering the Divine Gift and Abandonment Isolation

For many people who are experiencing rapid spiritual growth, isolation may be a necessary part of the learning curve. One reason for this is that the cellular pain comes to the surface it is hard even for those who are consciously aware not to project it to those around them.  Another reason for the isolation is that company can distract us from facing what we need to so we can move on.

How to Take the Empowerment Position With People Who Have Bullying and Psychotic Personalities

iStock-465478504

One of the major human lessons today is learning to take our power back and reposition ourselves above the bullying and abuse that exists in the world.


Bullies and psychopaths are not just in the movies, they are real personality types. Manipulation and control are as addictive as heroin to these people. While they make horrible spouses and BFF's, they are amazing spiritual teachers!


If a person has low self-worth or is lacking in self-respect they will attract these types of people and will probably get into a close relationship with them. They will keep these people close until they have learned the lessons they need to be more self-loving and self-respecting.


In my earliest of years I had experienced lots of brutal abuse of every kind. This led me to believe that I didn't matter a whole lot. On more of a toxic level I subconsciously believed that I existed to be an abuse toy for other people. This led to a string of psychopaths and emotionally abusive bullies. I allowed men and women alike to manipulate, control and abuse me. I am also incredibly empathic which played a dynamic in this unhealthy cycle.


If you are easy-going, and empathic, you may be a target for psychopaths.


Being easy-going, or laid-back, may lead the power-hungry and manipulative to perceive you as possible prey for their shenanigans. Someone once said, "Don't mistake kindness for weakness."

How to Find Conscious Empowerment for Personal Beauty

Durga-Magnetta-Personal-Beauty

This is about finding freedom, empowerment, appreciation, and satisfaction in your own personal beauty.

Today many women feel inadequate in comparison to the beauty standards of today's society. The media bombards us with the idea that we are not enough as we are. We are not thin enough, our lashes aren't long enough and are hair is missing texture. It is suggested that signs of aging decrease our value as people, and must be compensated for by the newest wrinkle cream on the market.

I consider myself to be a conscious person but I have noticed that I have also bought into some of the hype. I don't allow the influence of propaganda to make me buy Tide detergent. I have, however, allowed my mind to believe that I am substandard, in comparison to other women in the world.

This idea or belief is constantly in the back of my mind, creating pain and diminishing the quality of my life. When I see an ad for makeup, or a high-fashion magazine spread, the first thought that floods my mind, is always the same; " I don't look like that, and looking like that is what will make me desirable, and loved by others." In the back of my mind, I have a belief that, as long as other women look that way, I would never be anybody's first choice.

Does hope actually have a useful role in new-thought living?

Durga-Hope

One of my first reference tools for the study of consciousness and manifestation was the book The Game of Life and How to Play It; by Florence Scovel Shinn. She did most of her metaphysical writing in the early 1900's.

 

In regards to the concept of hope, she felt that it carried too much of the element of uncertainty and doubt. She used the example of a hope chest. Back in her day women would get a hope chest and gather different items to prepare for her future marriage.

 

Shinn felt that if a person only had hope for a future event or desired reality that it may be lacking the conviction and determination one would need to actually create change.


Hope may hold to much wiggle-room for failure.

How to Raise Your Self-Esteem in Two Steps

Self-esteem

It is my personal opinion that most people are unnecessarily insecure. These insecurities can hold people back from being truly happy, and living life to the fullest. Where do these insecurities come from? How can we become more confident?


The need for the approval of others is one of our first learned behaviors. As we started life, many of us learned that we received our parents love when we did things that pleased them. We were met with negativity, or not as much love, when we did things that upset them. Our parents were the gods of our universe at that time, and their love was not only desired instinctually, but was necessary for our survival.

As we move out into the world as individuals, we still feel that the acceptance and praise of others keeps us validated, and defines us as meaningful contributors to society. So this means that a large motivator for doing anything is the expectation of positive feedback from someone else.


When we receive praise, we allow it to lift us up, and we feel good about what we have done. A negative reaction from someone, can make us feel bad, and can even make us question our validity.


People's responses to outside stimulus are based mostly on unconscious neurological brain patterns. In other words, positive or negative judgments are not based on any valid truth. We have low self-esteem because we’ve allowed this to define us as people.

Why Our Inner ‘Demons’ are Not Moving Out Just Yet

Why Our Inner ‘Demons’ are Not Moving Out Just Yet

By this stage of the game, you may have spent years either learning healing modalities or hiring practitioners to help lift the pain body masses of energy lying  under the surface. You did this in hopes of avoiding the burning sensation and the hours and maybe even days of deep emotional pain and sorrow.

 

When it is feeding time, they come up and project a web of lies onto your current reality and warp your perception in an attempt to inflict pain. When you buy into the deception, you feed them and they continue to thrive.

How Learning to Say ‘No’ May Save the Good Standing of a Relationship

How Learning to Say ‘No’ May Save the Good Standing of a Relationship

As people we are fundamentally wired to want to help others. It is an experience that has the power to open our hearts and raise us up. That is why I find working in the service industry is so gratifying. I find every opportunity to help others in any capacity to be a catalyst to more joy and contentment. I also make it a point to serve selflessly when ever possible.

 

There is a gap between the good intentions for helping and the physical follow through. These are two very different things that may get confused as the same during the beginning stages of helping another.

 

With today’s busy lifestyles and constant communication stimulus, it is easy for our words to lose meaning and our promises to lie empty. The cause of this is partially the fact that we are multi-tasking and not grounded. i.e. Noticing a text while driving and forgetting that it ever happened and never responding because driving safely is much more of a priority. We are not being present with our communications.

Why the Love & Light Revolution may actually be hindering spiritual growth and personal development for many.

Love and Light Revolution
As people we are hungry for more peace and love in our lives. Over the past several years spirituality or spiritual growth for the purpose of personal development has become very popular. People are adapting to Eastern and New Age spiritual practices. There are many New Thought Leaders who have surfaced with their own messages and methods of how to create internal happiness and fulfillment. 

 
This eclectic melting pot of spirituality is what I refer to as the Light & Love Revolution. It is widely believed that focusing on the light and love of God will give a person loving experiences and make them feel good inside. This is only partly true.

Why karma does not seem to ‘come back around’ to those whom are intentionally hurtful.

karma

 Karma tends to be widely misunderstood. Most of us are only taught the ‘eye for an eye’ theory. This very basically instills a Kali or cosmos-fearing mentality that makes us think twice before indulging in a less than loving impulse. What goes around comes around is not always how karma plays it self out. There are many loving reasons for this.

 

I will start by saying that it is part of being human to be hurtful on occasion, especially when we get triggered. When this happens we sometimes feel the need to defend ourselves against a perceived wrongdoing. When we are in this dark and angry space, love and compassion is the only way for it to heal and turnaround.

If we were to attract more hurt, we could enter a downward spiral and move further away from a positive solution.

How to Overcome the Sting of Rejection

How to Overcome the Sting of Rejection

Being rejected is an inevitable part of life. When we don’t understand the rejection from the eyes of higher intelligence, it is easy to create a very painful emotional experience along with a lot of unnecessary suffering.

 

For example, the fear of rejection can hold people back from marketing their business or taking initiative with a love interest. It is important to realize that the fear is based on self-judgment and the projection of insecurities.

How to Shift the Patterns of Inferiority For Ourselves and Others

How to Shift the Patterns of Inferiority For Ourselves and Others

The moment we become aware of the darker workings of the ego and realize that we exist outside of it, we become conscious. This begins the process of recreating our reality and life experience.

 

I, like so many others had developed an inferiority complex due to the misjudgments and misconception my mind had formed around certain experiences of abuse. Once the belief had formed in the back of my mind that I was worthless and unimportant, it started to project it onto other people as a way to reinforce it. Subconsciously they would be prompted to validate these misconceptions. In some cases it just seemed that way.
