Feelin Good

“I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”
― Maya Angelou

I’ve heard or seen this Maya Angelou quote quite a few times in the past month.  And it seems it deserves some attention.  I can hear Esther Hick’s amazing voice on repeat saying “You can’t get there, unless you feel good” as I blog.  It’s like getting what you “want” isn’t quite IT.  If you get what you want and you don’t feel good, it still isn’t satisfying.  What we want is nothing in comparison to that innate thing that we simply have in feeling good with Nothing (gratitude when your stomach is empty)  and feeling good with Everything (gratitude when your stomach is full).

There’s something to this feeling good thing.  You can’t make it up, really.  You can’t force yourself to feel good.  You can’t make others feel good.  It’s an interesting thing:  This feelin good stuff.  Someone once told me that I could light up a room just by walking into it.  This sort of astonished me because when he told me this, it was because when I walked into the room full of friends he was in, I was just utterly delighted at seeing all of his and their beautiful faces.  It wasn’t me – it was him and all of them!  And the truth of the matter was, it was All of us.  All of us just lighting each other up.

What I have found is that it is supremely important to step deeply into the DARK, in order to see and feel the Light.  I’m about to blog about the Ajna chakra, the 6th Chakra.  The Ajna or 6th Chakra is the place of Wisdom + Truth in the Human body – located at the 3rd eye between the eyebrows on the forehead.  Right behind the 3rd eye are the pineal and pituarity glands.  If you choose to express a lot of joy,  there aren’t too many wrinkles there, bunching up the 3rd eye.  Oh but not wrinkling between the brows takes a lot of awareness, courage, discernment  and peace. (Or plastic surgery, but this option is more expensive, painful and bloody.  I prefer the less invasive option.)

There’s so much of this human life that requires that we step boldly and fearlessly into our own deepest darkest shame, fear, despair and trauma in order to uncover the Light.  This trip into the darkness can be utterly terrifying.  So we have lots of help during the journey.  This help comes in the form of friends, Gurus, relatives, angels (literal, figurative, all of them), therapists, healers, energy healers and more.  In a future blog post, I will give a list of contact names of some of these amazing people.  Holy beings are everywhere.

Like attracts like.  We attract what we vibrate.  And these beings of light, well, the commonality within all of them is that they have done some heavy deep coal-mining into the darkest trenches of their own psyches and uncovered:  GOLD.

And those who have gold can’t help but share in the bounty.  If you feel good, you want everyone to feel good.  There ain’t no shame in feeling bad, though.  Here’s the trick: right behind that feeling of dense dark nasty “bad” is the most immense sweetness.  Hold the hand of a great Guru, walk in the footsteps of Christ, gaze upon the peaceful countenance of a Buddha and dive into the darkness.  At the end of the tunnel, there is always Light.

Om shantih om,
