How to navigate your way when people create drama

I’ve set the intention to be peaceful and happy within my own little world. But what happens when other people I interact with actually are not aware that it is possible to live without drama. Some people can’t help themselves and it does not mean they are bad people, it just means they are likely to be subconsciously running a drama pattern. In all likelihood this drama pattern or multiple drama patterns started in early childhood. In some circumstances you might have a bunch of wonderful people all operating a subconscious drama pattern that collides and interacts and creates an opportunity to acknowledge a drama pattern. By acknowledging that a drama pattern is at work and working through any triggers that come up you can actually let it go.  

I’d like to think I’ve worked through my drama patterns and released the need to play a part in someone else’s drama. However, it’s easy to take a supporting role without even realizing that’s what you are doing. Self-awareness is the key and the moment you realize you have taken on a supporting role in someone else’s drama pattern it’s important to acknowledge it and make a conscious informed choice about the next step.

I chose to opt out of everybody else’s drama. It is a work in progress and requires monitoring of my own emotions. The moment I recognise that I’ve inadvertently signed up as a supporting actor I acknowledge myself and the feelings that have been triggered. When this happens I’m not resentful, or not for long anyway, because I recognise this is a self-empowering moment for me and provides me with a mechanism for bringing subconscious processes into conscious reality for release and transformation.

Next time you are caught up in a drama pattern be thankful for all the supporting cast for giving you an opportunity to grow and then move on. The people involved may stay in your life without the drama or they may fall away because their patterns require drama. It’s all good just a process to help create true happiness and peace.

ANZAC Day

ANZAC Day, 25 April is a day to remember the fallen and honour those that chose to serve. In Australia we have a public holiday on ANZAC Day and this year marks 99 years since Australia’s armed forces made history at Gallipoli.

I remember watching movie’s like Gallipoli and The Lighthorsemen and being both inspired and horrified by the unfolding drama depicted on screen. I feel grateful to live in Australia knowing that we as a country support people’s right for personal choice. As a nation we value the right to freedom of speech. Thank you to the men and women who chose to serve.

For the fallen by Laurence Binyon (1869 – 1943)

With proud thanksgiving, a mother for her children,

England mourns for her dead across the sea.

Flesh of her flesh they were, spirit of her spirit,

Fallen in the cause of the free.

Solemn the drums thrill: Death august and royal

Sings sorrow up into immortal spheres.

There is music in the midst of desolation

And a glory that shines upon our tears.

They went with songs to the battle, they were young.

Straight of limb, true of eye, steady and aglow.

They were staunch to the end against odds uncounted,

They fell with their faces to the foe.

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old;

Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.

At the going down of the sun and in the morning

We will remember them.

They mingle not with their laughing comrades again:

They sit no more at familiar tables at home;

They have no lot in our labour of the day-time;

They sleep beyond England’s foam.

But where our desires are and our hopes profound,

Felt as a well-spring that is hidden from sight,

To the innermost heart of their own land they are known

As the stars are known to the Night;

As the stars that shall be bright when we are dust,

Moving in marches upon the heavenly plain,

As the stars that are starry in the time of our darkness,

To the end, to the end, they remain.

Live without limits

Its Easter weekend 2014 do you have any plans to bring new experiences into your life? Symbolically speaking Easter is about new life. It’s easy to get caught up in the Christian view of crucifixion and resurrection of Christ or the commercialism of the holiday season associated with the Easter Bunny. The concept of Easter goes back to the pagan days and is a seasonal celebration of life. Why not try something different this Easter and think about what you would like to change about your life.  

I choose to take a deeper look at the symbolic meaning of Easter and I’m allowing old toxic patterns to turn to dust as I create new experiences.  I’m trying to look at the big picture when people don’t act or say what I want from them. I’m giving myself permission to acknowledge all of my thoughts and feelings. Instead of burying emotions that I may not be proud of I’m choosing to bring them into my conscious reality and explore the feelings in a safe and loving way so that I can release and reinvent myself. I like to use a little symbolic visualization to get to the root of my issues.

You can choose any issue to work with, but I’m going to make one up as an example. For a very long time my sister and I had a love hate relationship. She was the pretty one growing up and I was the smart one. Parents don’t get that comparisons are harmful emotionally speaking for children. Recently I noticed I was triggered by my sister and instead of slipping into the toxic love hate pattern I explored my feelings and realized it was stemming from being jealous because I was not labelled pretty by my parents growing up. In my little visualization I imagined my emotions were a weed and I followed them through to the root. It was here at the root that I realized I was still playing out the pattern of being the ugly daughter. In my visualization I imagined pulling that root out and placing it in an incinerator to burn. I did not stop there, I took my visualization further and I imagined planting a beautiful self-awareness that I am perfect exactly as I am. Happy Easter: it’s ok to say goodbye to the old way and hello to the new.Image

Exploring the sacred within

What does the term sacred woman mean? Trusty search using Google reveals interesting combination of ethereal information that can be used to integrate a spiritual definition of allow my divine spirit and my sacred inner woman freedom to express self in the physical realm of existence. This topic might be a bit heavy for some, but follow the thread and see if it resonates or if you can find some aspect to utilize within your own life.

The sacred woman and the laurel crown of wisdom can be accessed through dream interpretation, ideology or just plain old fashioned imagination. Allow yourself freedom to explore the nether to worlds of conscience and expand your neural networks into the land of imagination and there you can access divine knowledge best served to age old wisdom from the crone.

The sacred woman can be acknowledged as a giver of life the sacred womb that first gave birth and brought light into this world. This can of course be stigmatized and considered hypocritical considering the masculine view of the God Head that is generated through our time. However, acknowledging the sacred wisdom passed through ages gone by is vital to understand how women in society have been uncovered from divine sight.

What does this mean in terms that we can understand in today’s language. Enjoy all aspects of the sacred path of womanhood. It is women who carry and give birth to the next generation. Therefore our predecessors need to be honored as walking into a future of unknown benefit to the world. Walk within your own power and receive the glory of the natural world echoing through time.
