Some of my beliefs

This is a Re-post from a private group I belong to.

Now as a preface, these are my beliefs. Even though I feel that they are a universal truth, I await science to catch up with our beliefs. Also, I am a Clairsentient. Word of my creation. Clair- meaning from beyond (think Clairvoyant) and sentience meaning thought or knowledge or self aware. So to sum up, I tend to get information on things that I have never seen before or have absolutely no previous knowledge of. Don’t know why, but neither do Clairvoyants.

So I said that I do think that ancestry has an influence on our choices for beliefs and spirituality. I also said that this ancestral influence is not limited to our current life. So obviously I believe in reincarnation. But my beliefs of it are a little complicated and to some it might seem labyrinthine. But here it goes.

The god, gods, goddess are not actually self existing beings. They are given form and power through our own beliefs and thoughts. All that exists is, what I call, the Divine. This Divine, is semi-sentient energy that exists everywhere and within everything. To borrow from Christianity (Eew, I know), the Divine is All around (Omnipresent) all knowing (Omniscient) and all powerful (Omnipotent). It is both the constructive and destructive force that is life and death, but it does not control anything per se, just at the most basic level. Really it just exists. And it is neuter, neither masculine nor feminine. If you are familiar with the western concept of the elements (Earth, Air, Fire, Water) and the amalgam of them (Spirit, Shadow, Akasha, the 5th element). This 5th element is the Divine. There is also Light and Dark (NOT good or evil).

We exist in one universe out of many, and we are one sentient race out of many, including within our universe. I like to see is as each universe is like a black egg at the end of each branch of the world tree or Yggdrasil. The Divine flows through all these universes and the tree. As far as I know, only the Divine can traverse between the universes through the tree. However any point within any universe may have any number of parallels. Like different parallel Earths.

When a soul is born, in a manner of speaking, a quanta of the Divine breaks off, equally semi-sentient but not fully mature. Coded within this immature soul is a primary focus or mission of sorts, pursued through instinct (at least until it becomes known after awakening).

This baby soul will seek out the person or being that can best lead to the progression of its mission. [no I’m not going to touch when the soul takes root, too many implications] This life can exist within any of the universes or dimensions. Once this infant soul melds with its chosen being it becomes a whole, mature soul.

This life becomes the soul life and it creates the foundation and basic personality that will be carried throughout all subsequent lives until the total completion of its mission where it will return to the Divine whole and be reincorporated, disseminating all its collected knowledge and life back into the Divine whole.

As lives progress they are added onto the soul whole (soul life and Divine quanta) as a layer. Not so much like an onion but like a jawbreaker with a core and layer upon layer on top. So yes, our ancestry is far more than what our current life’s blood contains. All past lives influence us, but our soul life influences us the most. And we can be many more different races that mere humans or that what is known on this Earth. Plus time is simultaneous, it is only viewed as linear because we can understand that more easily.

So that’s it in a nutshell. This is the first time I’ve put it all into words. So be gentle.

Being an Empath

Empath’s are unique personality types, their sensory levels are always on high alert, they are incredibly intuitive and their awareness and sensitivity to the energy levels that vibrate around them are extremely high.

If an empath senses something, they are not often wrong. If they think someone’s lying or that something is just “not right” you can bet your last dollar that they are not wrong.

Therefore, a basic understanding of this mystical and quite magical creature is highly beneficial.

Empaths have quite a few little quirks, traits and characteristics that are worth knowing about, and gaining a better understanding of, so that any relationship that is formed has a strong survival chance and also so that it thrives.

Empaths can be deeply misunderstood. It can take a little time to get to know them before they fully unravel and until their true magnificent spirit receives the opportunity to shine.

Love with an empath will be intense as they are energetically sensitive, therefore they will pick up on everything and anything that is happening around them. Regardless of whether emotions have been outwardly expressed, empaths will experience their partner’s emotions as deeply as they feel their own.

It is impossible to try to hide true feelings when romantically involved with an empath as they will likely have figured them out long before the person feeling them has. Empaths are highly intuitive yet sometimes fail to trust their inner voice as too many people have previously tried to wrongly convince them that their gut feelings were wrong.

Being a little naïve and trusting at times, the empath has doubted themselves and pushed aside their intuition, causing them to lose faith in the power they hold within that alerts them to any perceived signs of danger. That being said, the little nagging voice in the empath’s head will not subside until the reality and truth has been fully uncovered.

Empaths like truth, however hard it is to handle. They would rather be told things straight than told a lie, even if it is a white one. Although the truth isn’t always pretty, it is much nicer than spending days and nights trying to make sense of all the complicated energies and subliminal messaging systems that are going on.

If it’s one thing that empaths are amazing at it is dealing with a brutally raw and honest relationship. Although they can be rather delicate creatures on some levels, their strength in relationships is found where honesty, trust and loyalty come before anything else.

Empaths can be perceived as having hearts that are caged in. Although, this is only true when they have been deceived so many times they feel that their only option is protection. The true spirit of an empath wants to give and receive love in abundance, though they are only able to do this when they feel safe and secure that they are in a safe place to open the door and allow the love to flow.

One of the most tragic parts about the empaths character is that all too often the love is cast out in all the wrong places. Empaths feel the pain and sorrow of the whole world and feel that they want to heal and fix the world up and make things better for all concerned. This can be an amazingly powerful thing and this energy is exactly what the world needs. However, this can also be a deeply painful way to exist.

Not everyone sees the world the way an empath views it and because of this, an empath’s heart will be broken constantly and they will bleed endlessly for cruelty, injustice and inequalities. There will be many who will want to take the love, affection and the empath’s good nature with no care for giving any return or who might view the compassionate and selfless nature of empaths as a weakness and take advantage of them.

Whilst this can teach an empath a lot about unconditional love and also an immense amount about self-preservation, it is also a deeply painful learning process.

An empath will fail to understand why others do not give out care, consideration and affection freely and why other people can so easily turn a blind eye to heartbreak and suffering when healing is what is required. Others may ridicule and belittle the empaths desire to reach out and make a difference, and this serves to add salt to their wounds.

When an empath feels hurt, what they need most is loving support and understanding so that they know they are not alone in wanting to use some of their powerful energy to heal and make changes in the world; if they receive this from a partner, a bond for life will very likely form.

Empaths will fall into the hands of those who want to take advantage of their somewhat naïve and caring nature. Again, this is another sharp lesson and one that can cause an empath to develop a sense of mistrust and what leads to protecting their emotions with barriers and brick walls.

It can also lead to an empath to feelings of unworthiness and also low-self esteem, as once they have depleted their energy reserves to such a low level by giving and not understanding how to protect themselves in the process, they can end up with a broken heart and with very little faith in mankind.

It is not in an empaths nature to take, they only know how to give, so to ensure the relationship is one of balance and is also harmonious, ensure the empath is shown love in the form of actions, so that the circle of love flows freely. Words will mean little to an empath, unless they are followed through. Their intuition will quickly pick up on something done with poor intent, or if a person’s words are inauthentic.

To love someone who is an empath means to recognise that they thrive when the flames are turned up, not down. An empath gives off a powerful and energetic fuel of love, light and radiance, though the fire only fully rages when an empath exists in a sacred place within which they feel secure enough to glow.

Empaths are soft, delicate and immensely vulnerable creatures on the inside, although, once burnt, on the outside they can appear incredibly strong. Once bitten, twice shy where an empath is concerned, they find it very difficult to forget deep wounds and to continue a relationship once foundations are rocked. Empaths may forgive such offenses rather easily, at least to the outsider. But the empath will always remember the offense and from that time forward, will always be cautious around that person.

The best way to fully connect with an empath is by creating a safe and solid platform to build a future upon. If cracks appear through mistrust and deceit, it can become immensely difficult to repair them. Empaths thrive on trust, loyalty and dependability. Show them these things and the relationship will be very difficult to break.

As empaths are highly passionate people, they will often find a strong connection to a hobby or interest that others will find impossible to penetrate. Due to their creative side, they may find a resonance with music, dance, writing, art, activism, reading, Yoga, meditation, humanitarian causes or other similar interests. Whatever it is that has captured the mind of an empath will be become sacred in their hearts.

Empaths will immerse themselves in their hobbies and lose themselves completely and sometimes this can feel as though their interests are the only things that matter to them. Although they will have a deep attachment to their passions, it is far easier to understand that an empath loves all things at great levels of intensity and they need outside interests to survive and feel alive, this can sometimes be difficult for others to understand.

Space, plenty of space, and freedom to explore and submerge in their chosen activity is the easiest way to deal with this. Asking an empath to choose may not give the desired outcome that would be hoped for. The heart quickly gets connected to passionate interests, and once that connection has been made, the heart will be break if it has to be severed.

Respect and understanding for another’s alone time can make or break a relationship with an empath. An empath will not want or expect anyone else to dive as deeply into their interests as they do, however, an understanding that their interests are significantly important can really make life a whole lot easier.

There is no need to feel ostracised or unwelcome, while there’s a little chance an empath will let you fully in to their special interest, it is far more likely they will gain more pleasure when they are wrapped up in it by themselves. This is not selfish or inconsiderate, it is just simply how the empath’s heart and spirit operate.

If they have a connection to something, it is intense and they will very likely wish to delve as deeply into it as is possible. Passions are a great energy release and empaths will possibly feel as though they zone-out while immersed, and they will very likely lose all track of time. Allow them to take pleasure in it, and with the free time this has created, take up interests separately rather than allowing resentment or frustration to build.

It possibly won’t last for too long, as empaths are known to move quickly from one interest to another once the initial burning desire of connection eventually simmers down.

As empaths are sensitive to energy, their worst-case scenarios are confrontations and aggressive situations. Although under normal circumstances they are one of the least violent and aggressive characters, they can very easily lose their self-control if they become absorbed in the negative and toxic energy that surrounds them. Empaths are fight or flight characters who more often than not, will prefer to take flight and remove themselves from the weight that the energy is bearing down on them.

If situations like this occur regularly, it can eventually lead empaths to become introverted and homebodies as they prefer the safety of their own environment where they are not subjected to the rise and fall of other people’s energies. After attending any kind of social situation, they will need downtime to recharge and to balance out their own energy fields.

Places such as supermarkets, nightclubs, the cinema or anywhere where there is a large crowd of people, will be very draining for an empath. They are very sensitive to light and sound, so these things can also have a detrimental and draining effect on an empath’s psyche. An empath will likely need to hold on to their partner’s hand or arm during such occasions, finding that their partner’s energy forms a soothing welcome block and temporary release from the energies that surround.

After attending any social function an empath may feel completely drained and the effects can be temporarily debilitating, meaning that all an empath will want to do is sleep or rest, possibly alone, until the absorbing effects of the occasion have worn off.

All in all, it will take a very secure, confident and balanced person to form a solid mutually beneficial and rewarding relationship with an empath. The empath personality type is a unique and extremely enchanting gift to the world. As long as their wings are not clipped, and they have the freedom and space to fly, it has the opportunity to be a deeply rewarding, incredibly loving and spiritually awakening relationship for both involved.

A connection with an empath can be a blessing and one of the greatest gifts from the universe as it offers the opportunity to look at the world through the lens of a kaleidoscope. Everything that may have once seemed normal for a relationship will be turned upside down as a new understanding and perspective is learned and the unconscious mind is preened open.

At times it may feel like being in the company of a magically gifted being who has special powers that we have been led to believe do not exist within humans. This can be both a blessing and a curse. Nothing will get past an empath as they see, feel and connect with everything at all times.

The one thing I would strongly recommend is to peel back all the layers that society labels as “norms,” “standards” and “expectations.” We are then free to discover a brand new way of existing; giving and receiving unconditional love, being fully alive in the moment, connecting deep within the core of our primal being and reigniting all the superpowers that are inherent within humanity.

A relationship with an empath can lead to uncovering special gifts such as intuition, energy awareness, deep connection and a brand new level of understanding the fellow man without the need for speech. All the things the modern world has tried, for far too long, to convince us we should deny.
True love can be a very difficult thing for an empath to achieve, although with the right person, with someone understanding, grounded, free spirited and trustworthy, love can be an intimate, deeply bonding, healing, fulfilling, empowering and healthy addiction that neither will want to break.

What happens if I flush leftover drugs down the toilet?

Great advice just in general.

Q.What is the best way to dispose of liquid antibiotics once treatment is done? Do pharmacists really have some special, better way to dispose of drugs, or are they really just flushing them? We are particularly concerned about antimicrobial resistance/antibiotics/etc. entering our water system. What is the best way to prevent or mitigate this from happening? As the mom of two little kids, this is sure to come up again and again in our household …

A. Dearest Kristina,

I do hope your little ones are feeling better. Children and germs do seem to find each other, don’t they?

Antibiotics are an excellent tool for restoring vim and vigor (when carefully prescribed and taken, of course – unnecessarily guzzling them can contribute to dangerously drug-resistant bacteria), but the leftovers certainly do become a burden. Any drug can get into local waterways if we don’t dispose of…

Growing Up Millennial

This was absolutely beautifully said. I don’t know what year you were born, but from your comments, I’m assuming you were born in the nineties. I was born in ’82, but I’m still a millenial. My younger childhood was spent in the eighties, but the childhood years I remember are from the nineties. As such I consider myself a child of the nineties, even though I feel old by comparison. It’s interesting that the Millenial generation is spanning so many decades considering that all previous generations only spanned about 2 decades. So the children being born now are Millenials, but their parents are also Millenials. Very interesting from an Anthropological and Sociological standpoint. But I do love the points you raised. More than any previous generation, we are extremely individualistic, but it was a progression through the generations. Previous generations do judge subsequent generations but in truth, all subsequent generations are built upon previous generations. Also if you look at education levels, at least in terms of formality; we are the highest educated generation in all of previous American generations. Yet in spite of said education, we have the highest unemployment rate of any previous American generation, save for the parents of the Silent generation, ie. the Great Depression. But again, a progression, from the Silent generation (usually our grandparents), to the Baby Boomers (usually our parents), to Generation X, to Generation Y and the rest of the Millenial generation.

But I believe, because of what we grew up with, the rise of fast and relatively free communications across the globe, through the internet and other media. Even though our methods have become more impersonal, our reach has grown well beyond any past generation in all of Human history. I think that our generation will shake the foundation of the status quo and can potentially change everything. One great thing, in general, about our generation is that we are not afraid to ask why. And on top of that, we won’t settle for anything less than the truth. Additionally, in general, we have an insatiable appetite for knowledge, and for the first time in Human history, it’s all right at our fingertips and extremely easy to obtain. We will serve as an example of the great potential for Humanity, and not it’s downfall.

The Captain's Speech

Screen Shot 2015-05-09 at 3.54.51 AMAs a person born in the 90s, I am classified as a millennial, which means I am everything that is wrong with the world today. I stare at a screen instead of talking to people. I expect everything handed to me. I am lazy. I binge watch television shows. I overuse the word “binge”. I expect a trophy when I fail. I take selfies everywhere. I am narcissistic. I am entitled. I don’t read the newspaper. I spend too much time on “The Twitter.”

Or at least that’s how I’m categorized.

As if I’m a book and my date of birth is the summary on the back, telling everyone exactly what I’m about.

I feel as though there is a sense of pride that people have for growing up when they did. I look back on the 90s and am thrilled to call that decade my childhood. Just as people born in…

Flag for a unified Earth/Terra

http://www.iflscience.com/space/planet-earth-now-has-flag

I can’t express just how supportive I am of this project. We need to unify as a species, as inhabitants, as a biome of this beautiful planet. At current we are disparate, we are divided, we are selfish, we are greedy, we are gluttonous. All these things are leading up to destroy this planet and abuse our brothers and sisters of race and species. We need to realize that our differences are not what should separate us. Our differences make us stronger and allow us, as a species, to survive. This is proven through the need for genetic diversity. But even more important is what makes us the same. Our physiological needs are all the same. We need clean and potable (drinkable) fresh water, we need sufficient nutrition through food, we need certain resources to maintain our health and civilization (of course the fall of civilization will not affect the survivability of humanity). We all have the same needs no matter what our beliefs are, the color of our skin, what our culture is, what our ailments and/or addictions are, or how intelligent or contributory to society we are.

Unification of the whole of our species is necessary for the continuance of humanity. It is also necessary to roll back the severe damage WE have done. The people and nations and organizations and governments and corporations who are egregiously guilty of this know who they are. It is the responsibility and duty as citizens of this planet to take down and eliminate these criminals. Our allegiance as a species and as inhabitants of this planet by far supercedes any allegiance to any of the above bodies. Also as, the previously established, citizens we must be stewards of this planet, it’s longevity and all the flora and fauna also living on and within this planet.
