How the World You Create is Reflected Back to You

It’s all Alchemy!
“Ancient alchemists, like their Yogi counterparts, saw all of creation as composed of earth, air, fire, water, and space.
 
Each and every one of us is an #alchemist. Our laboratory is our brain. We concoct our potions and elixirs based upon our thoughts. These chemicals then course through our neurological systems and spread into our organs, muscles, bones and tissues. Depending upon the quality of our thoughts and our level of consciousness, we are either creating black magic that will only cause us pain, or we are creating miracle potions that can help us lead the lives we have always desired.
 
For instance, a chronically agitated, fearful and angry person creates too much adrenaline and cortisol, the primary chemicals associated with our instinctive fight-or-flight response. Our fast-paced, stressed-out culture contributes to this alchemy and such a person finds themselves in increasingly toxic life situations. This pattern often leads to lowered immune function, mental or physical ailments, and ultimately serious disease.
 
The thoughts of a more positive alchemist create serotonin and interleukins. These chemicals boost the immune function, relax our adrenals, and promote healing. This pattern leads to a happier life in which greater health, greater achievements, and greater experiences seem to go hand-in-hand.
 
Simply put, as we all have heard, “You are what you think.” The hypochondriac becomes sick. The person who thinks negatively creates a reality in which things always seem to go wrong. Those who believe they cannot accomplish something have already seeded their own defeat. On the other hand, the positive person who takes a sugar pill in a blind test of a new medicine may actually experience benefits far beyond what the real drug has to offer. Those who are convinced of their potential are likely to realize it no matter what obstacles arise. Those who see the world filled with light and love often have this reflected back to them as their reality.”

Heart Fire Medicine

“If Earth’s WHOLE history was compressed into 24 hours beginning at midnight, organic life would begin only at 5pm…mammals emerge at 11:30pm…and from amongst them only SECONDS to midnight, our species.”

Now is our time to FIRE up and do something with this gift of life before its gone. I pray that we all embrace our individual Dharma’s today. No waiting.

If you desire inspiration, then let me with my dharma of Activation help you.

“FIRE from our SUN that fuels all LIFE drawing up plants and raising the water to the sky to fall again replenishing. This is the same fire of lightening that flashed into the primordial soup, catalyzing the BIRTH of organic life.”
-John Seed and Joanna Macy

Pranayama: Double inhale through nose, double exhale through mouth (in planks)

It is well to give when asked, but it is better to give unasked, through understanding;
And to the open-handed the search for one who shall receive is joy greater than giving.
And is there aught you would withhold?

 

All you have shall some day be given;

 

Therefore give now, that the season of giving may be yours and not your inheritors’.
See first that you yourself deserve to be a giver, and an instrument of giving.
For in truth it is life that gives unto life while you, who deem yourself a giver, are but a witness.

 

And you receivers… and you are all receivers… assume no weight of gratitude, lest you lay a yoke upon yourself and upon him who gives.
Rather rise together with the giver on his gifts as on wings;
For to be overmindful of your debt, is to doubt his generosity who has the freehearted earth for mother, and God for father.
– Kahlil Gibran
