Today we are checking in. The shift in consciousness is now occurring and there are several things in process. Partly some of us our raising our consciousness and doing the work necessary to become conscious beings. As we work on our Man in the Mirror, you'll find that there are others who are desperately holding on to the old patterns of life. Like so often most people don't like change. When challenged with changes or in the face of having to come to terms with themselves some people will get increasingly angry and instead of looking inward to where this anger has come from, they will express it outwardly. This means that as this shift happens we will begin to see the unconscious act out more. There will be more destruction for a bit before more of us can come to a level of consciousness where we can also begin raising their vibrations.
What does this all mean? I'll tell you. Have you noticed on the news, maybe in your hometown, or with people around you that they might be acting angrier, having a shorter temper, or being just plain mean? Maybe you've notice others being more tolerant, light hearted and happy? This shift is dividing many into two categories. Either you get on the program of love and light or you resist the changes and struggle with your inner demons, expressing them in unhealthy ways.
This morning I learned of a girl who killed herself because she was being bullied at school. I also heard a story of a grandmother being punched and dragged by her hair at her grandchild's birthday party in a public restaurant. All because she asked the neighboring table to try and keep down their cursing in this "child's party place." The children, around the age of seven, watched as their parents "bullied" and beat the grandmother. This is exactly the type of behavior that needs to be stopped. The only way school aged bullies don't grow up to be "parent" bullies is by stopping the cycle. To do that we MUST begin looking at ourselves in a new way.
This has me very upset because both Michael and I and I bet many more of you out there reading this have been bullied. Mostly by our own families and so called friends. Sometimes if you don't go by "their program" and set of rules or simply speak your mind, like the grandmother did, they punish you. Some might never speak to you again. Punish you by alienating you so you feel that you have been the one in the wrong or send you nasty emails, defame your name or write bad press like they did to Michael. It should be no surprise then that because of the treatment many of us have considered killing ourselves thinking we will end the pain. I can tell you, however,that this will not end the pain and this is why we have ghosts and those that are in the astral planes of existence. We take with us these emotions as they are stored in what we call the "emotional body". That is part of what we were working on in the Man in the Mirror Project. Remembering the sensations of what we feel as we think our repetitive thoughts.
I'd like you to visit the Return to LOVE page if you have questions about what bullying is. My son has been recently bullied in his school. When I reported it the teacher said when she talked to the students doing the bullying (both age 8) they had no idea what it was. Our first step is education and that's why our Return to LOVE page is there. Please feel free to print out any information to help educate our families, children and schools. And, if you've ever been the one to bully someone else, please take a good look in the mirror. Instead of condemning yourself, try and see what and who bullied you to make you feel as if you had to bully another.
