Power people, this weekend is prime for setting aside some stillness time for much needed self-observation, energy transformation, process appreciation and love’s domination in the context of conscious creation – and it’s always up to you!
I want to lean this blog towards men, or the man in your life, and here’s why…I met and talked with someone recently who was schooling me on the opiate epidemic in America and the healing circles that have formed by the families left behind by death to suicide or overdose. Unfortunately this is a non-story in our cult of personality ‘news’ entertainment. What I learned is that the women family member survivors are much quicker to open up to vent, feel, and listen to others who are suffering in the same way caused by this forgotten epidemic. But the men and their sons, following their Dad’s unspoken lead are for the most part stuffing their feelings, turning away from them or doing their best not to be vulnerable and open based upon old generational programming…. that has to change. BTW my intention here is awareness and inspiration:
I think it’s pretty interesting that old school thinking is still deeply in effect concerning the illusionary idea that being a ‘real’ man means negating anything dealing with feelings….it was [and still is] considered less than manly to express feelings, talk about feelings or definitely not cool to share feelings!
And yet those very same men – when it comes to what we label ‘manly’…things like boxing, big wave surfing, golf, football, basketball, race car driving, motorcycle riding, sharpshooting or even smoking cigars…they all depend upon a thing called ‘feel’!
Increasing numbers of evolving conscious males are discovering that true manhood is not just about sexuality, never about exclusivity and only about superior strength in physical competition. We are finding that ‘Mindful Manhood’ is about inner awareness, deep appreciation for all life, humble spiritual confidence, vibrant health, passion for being of service to others and a secure connection to the source of all life…and it’s all begins with feelings!
Feeling is greater than just touch – feeling is also an energy indicator – an intuitive tool for mindful knowing and conscious choosing. A feeling can let you know that it’s time to choose a different thought, word or direction. An expressed feeling of grief, anger, pain or confusion could prevent an act of violence or destruction; feelings matter! Let your feelings come up and out this weekend…light/dark/uncertain/whatever….let them arise but address them with a new understanding that ‘WHAT YOU DON’T FEEL YOU CAN’T HEAL’, use all of your mental, spiritual tools to clear the slate of unwanted beliefs to be able to forge ahead in vibrant health and yes-mindedness into tomorrow, next week, into the rest of 2016 and beyond!!
