Expressing Love and Compassion - December 2011
I just came across something I had printed off awhile ago with the title ‘A Synopsis of Bashar’s Basic Message.’ Bashar is a multi-dimensional being channeled through Darryl Anka. The sentence that caught my attention was:
“You are loved so unconditionally by Creation that you can even choose to believe that you are not loved.”
That spoke volumes to me about our human condition and how inhumane we can be to ourselves and others. So many of us have deep wounds of our soul that we have brought in with us from many past lives. These core issues often profoundly affect us in this lifetime. Many of our core issues relate to being unloved, unworthy, inadequate, deserted, unimportant, and the list goes on.
We are not even conscious of how deeply buried these themes are. We have had lifetimes of programming and conditioning that taught us to put our needs last and it was preferable to sacrifice and suffer. This was used to keep control of us and not allow the expression of true love and compassion, which is only available to us when we are able to love ourselves first. When we love ourselves, we naturally take care of our needs and have a life of balance, and fulfillment on all levels. There is no critical judgment of others but rather empathy and compassion.
At this present time in our evolution it is not appropriate or of service to ourselves, our loved ones or our planet, to come from martyrdom and self-sacrifice. The gold stars are instead awarded now to those who come from their heart, loving and accepting themselves and others, and able to express that love and acceptance freely without strings or attachments.
My understanding is that many of the children being born at this time are not incarnating with the heavy duty karma that the previous generations have brought in to resolve. Thank goodness! Many of the newer children are role models for us in embodying and expressing love and compassion, sorely needed in these times of extreme polarities.
Gregg Braden from his book Walking Between The Worlds states “Our own science now has demonstrated that your DNA is directly tied to your ability to forgive, allow and love through the expression of your life. The science of compassion, loving, forgiving and allowing is nothing new. It is an ancient as well as universal science.” Look at areas of your life and question where you can demonstrate more love and compassion for yourself that will ultimately emanate to others.
If you are a parent, you might choose to get a babysitter more often and do something you love to do, or work fewer hours, or take that dream vacation now instead of waiting for enough money, time or whatever other excuse you use to put it off. I remember years ago as a single mother of 2 working for a communications company, when I found out I was getting laid off. I had already booked a trip with my kids to go to Disneyland for the first time and a Caribbean cruise with a girlfriend shortly afterwards. At that time I still had my poverty consciousness issues and really struggled with allowing myself to go on one let alone both of those trips. In the end, I did decide to go on both trips and have never regretted it. My kids and I have some of our fondest memories together from our trip to Disneyland.
One of my survival behaviours has been to strive to accomplish more and more. One of the deep core issues I brought in was that I was deserted and have therefore felt unsupported. To be able to heal and release this issue in this lifetime, I co-created the perfect karmic family and relationships to demonstrate that to me.
At age 53 I am finally making headway on resolving this core issue, knowing that my support comes from within so I don’t need that mirrored back to me any longer. What can you do today to express love and compassion to yourself? Are you out of balance with too much ‘doing’ and ‘striving’ or the opposite of avoiding, procrastination or hiding? Do you treat yourself with love and compassion or constant thoughts of self-criticism? Know that you deserve love, understanding, forgiveness and compassion and that you are loved and supported beyond measure.

|Eating before Exercise|
|According to nutrition experts, eating before exercise improves performance. Use these guidelines to design your meal or snack: enough fluid to keep you hydrated, low in fat and fiber, high in carbohydrate, and moderate in protein. Select foods familiar to you. The rule of thumb for eating before exercise is to allow 4 hours for a big meal (about 1,200 calories), 2 hours for a light meal (about 600 calories), and an hour or less for a snack (about 300 calories).|

|150 Organic and Natural Gardening Tips ~ Part Four ~ 76 to 100|
|Let's start we the next 25 Tips, Hints, Tricks and Facts for Natural Gardening. April is all about getting ready for Spring and preparing for the summer growing season. Here are some tips such as: Feed your indoor seedlings with dilute fish fertilizer, unless the odor is a problem. If so, worm tea works well; it is gentle and won’t burn tender seedlings. Or use a fan to blow a gentle breeze over seedlings indoors. The breeze increases air circulation, which decreases disease problems and helps build stronger stems. Another tips is to hide an ugly chain link fence with climbing flowers such as morning glories or sweet peas, or tall flowers such as hollyhocks or sunflowers. Read more tips....|

Description: Whole-wheat Pasta is an excellent source of complex carbohydrates which provide a slow release of energy. Unlike simple sugars that offer a quick, yet fleeting boost of energy, pasta helps sustain energy.
Pasta is a useful source of protein, is very low in sodium and cholesterol-free. Whole wheat pasta can provide up to 25% of daily fiber requirements in every one cup portion.Pastas are a good source of iron (with about 2mg in a 1-cup serving), potassium, and many are also enriched with thiamine, niacin, and other B vitamins.
Asparagus is an alkaline food which is rich in protein but low in calories and carbohydrates. Although it's available all year round, asparagus usually is most found and best in spring and is harvested when it is about 6 to 8 inches tall. It is an excellent source of potassium, folic acid, vitamins A, C and K, and traces of vitamin B complex. A good source of dietary fiber, asparagus is also rich in niacin, phosphorus and very low sodium. And my favourite health benefit of asparagus and certainly most impressive is that it is one of those few vegetables that actually has the calcium and magnesium in the ideal ratio of 2:1.
