Valuable insights from the last year of Cosmic Cafe
In the spirit of the Best of Jackson Hole, here are some of the best nuggets of wisdom to keep in mind on your path to a higher frequency.
Food is Vibration, Energy and Frequency
“You are what you eat eats.” – Michael Pollan
Manifesting our higher consciousness into this physical reality requires a body operating at a high vibration. Food is frequency, energy and information which communicates specific instructions to our cells. The quality of the energy in food and drink determines what it is capable of delivering to the body. What happens to the food from its inception to our plates has a lasting impact on the quality of its energy, nutritional value and what it is able to communicate for our well-being. As nutritionist and author Marc David points out, “every experience in the life cycle of a given food is encoded within (that food) as energy.”
Love is a State of Being
“Your love is not outside you; it is deep within you. You can never lose it, and it cannot leave you.” – Eckhart Tolle
From a metaphysical perspective, love is way more than an emotion; it is a state of being which comes from the soul and radiates through you. The more open your heart, the more you let go of old hurts, grudges, outdated beliefs and stories about your life, the more the light and intelligence of the soul shines through. The quality of your energy is contagious.
In the last days of 2017, there was an interesting flurry in national newspapers and mainstream media of UFO- related information, including camera footage released by NASA and former Pentagon officials. The bottom line is that highly placed people and government sources are gently letting us know that the evidence for non-terrestrials visiting the Earth is very compelling. As this story unfolds, stay informed and keep your heart and mind open and curious. We are on the cusp of becoming galactic citizens.
Conscious Parenting is Key
New research supports being mindful of what we say to our little ones. Up to the age of five, children are not able to filter anything we communicate. For better and worse, everything we say and imply about them, goes directly to their subconscious where it registers as completely true, and remains buried. Those unquestioned positive and negative messages will continue to influence the child’s perceptions of self, others and life.
When your very young children or grandchildren tell you startling things, including stories about past lives or invisible friends, keep in mind they are trying to tell you something they perceive as true. You might lean in, be curious and supportive, rather than being judgmental. The best approach is to ask children non-leading questions so they can tell you more, and to let them answer without any commentary. As mindful, open-hearted and open-minded parents (and grandparents), we set the stage for our children’s best lives, and we learn too.
A Cherokee Teaching for Our Times
A Cherokee grandfather sits surrounded by his grandchildren and offers this teaching. “A fight is going on inside me,” he says to the wide-eyed children. “It’s a terrible fight and it is between two wolves. One is negative and destructive. I am calling him the bad wolf. He is all about anger, envy, self-pity, sorrow, regret, greed, guilt, resentment, lies, false pride, superiority and ego.” The grandfather continues, “The other wolf is positive and constructive; I am calling him the good wolf. He is all about joy, peace, love, hope, forgiveness, serenity, humility, kindness, empathy, generosity, truth, and compassion. The same fight is going on inside each of you, and inside every other human being, too.”
With great concern the children anxiously ask the grandfather, “Which wolf will win?”
“The one you feed,” the Cherokee grandfather replies.
Practicing feeding the good wolf as consistently as possible is how we can upgrade our world. Feeling you are too insignificant for your attitudes and behaviors to make a big difference? The Dali Lama has something for you to consider: “If you think you are too small to make a difference, try sleeping with a mosquito!”
