Tips for Light Workers to Better Understand…

I found this list on a website two years ago and the link has long since disappeared. It is a very helpful set of tips for us ‘sensitives’ to understand how we’re wired and what triggers or soothes us. Hugs, Big Love to all, mare

Tips for Light Workers to Better Understand, Minimize, and/or Avoid Depression

 

When molecules of water are subjected to higher frequencies in order to raise their own, they become a higher or more intense expression of themselves in both structure and behavior. Since water comprises over 80% of the human body, the same is true for people of higher frequency, including Empaths, Crystals, Indigos, First Wavers, etc. People with innately higher personal frequencies become “super-charged” humans with emotions even more intense than the majority of the population. For this reason, they are often prone to bouts of intense sadness, “lows,” and even periods of potentially debilitating depression.  While we all have our ebbs and flows as we attempt to navigate the 3d world, it is possible to help prevent and/or minimize these profoundly uncomfortable periods of depression.

  1. Keep in mind that the sadness, hopelessness, powerlessness, and/or apathy that you feel may not be all “yours” or even yours at all! People of high frequency take in and absorb almost everything that is around them—from other people’s emotions and illnesses; to Mother Nature’s pains and natural events; to the pollutants and toxins in our air, water, and frequency ranges. So, it is quite likely that the negative feelings you have are either exacerbated by what’s around you or perhaps primarily from what’s around you. If you can determine the contributing factors from earthquakes to a coworker’s headaches, you can learn to understand, avoid, or even counteract them before they compromise your own mood and system on a more permanent basis.
  2. USE and expend the energy that you have and that you take in both consciously and unconsciously. Depression is negative energy turned inward. If you do not find ways to physically use your intense energies in sports, walking, swimming, martial arts, etc., the energy is likely to be internalized and build up to the point of hindering your mind, body, and spirit. So, get moving!
  3. Check your thyroid and adrenal glands to see if they have been overly taxed by the stress in your life, including the frequencies you pick up. If so, they very likely contribute to your depression. The human body was not built to withstand all of the frequencies and toxins in today’s world that high frequency people tend to receive and take in. The thyroid and adrenal glands often suffer first and become underactive– which very negatively impacts your mood swings, energy, weight, and hormone levels. Fortunately, there are many holistic ways to rehabilitate and protect the adrenals, thyroid, and hormone levels so that your mind and body function more optimally.
  4. Examine your diet and supplement routine to make sure that what you eat or drink isn’t what’s agitating your system and making you more depressed. GMO’s, sugars, dairy, wheat/gluten, too many supplements (even of great quality), synthetic supplements (not of whole food origin), and mercury-laden seafood can cause health, skin, and mood issues, sensitivities, and reactions. Depending on your blood type and frequency, you may require a more diverse or higher protein diet to stay balanced. So, make sure that you are not forcing yourself to follow a diet that doesn’t fit your particular body’s needs. Listen to your body and take notice when you feel and function best– because as a high frequency person, you’ll find that it’s most likely NOT what works for the rest of the population.
  5. Listen to and honor your cravings. For example, sometimes the body does need to sleep for up to a day in order to recover and heal mentally and physically. In addition, many people crave spicy foods when they are depressed, probably because spices assist healing and metabolic processes. In other words, your body is trying to tell you what it needs for balance. So, allow yourself moderate indulgences in food, rest, and activities in order to achieve that balance.
  6. Find alternatives to pharmaceuticals– which usually are not effective for high frequency individuals anyway. For example, taking amino acid therapies appropriate to your neurotransmitter imbalances and body, tapping (EFT), and energy work can be faster, more cost-efficient, and more effective alternatives to anti-depressants—without the side effects! Even pharmaceutical labels warn that anti-depressants and a wide variety of other medications tax the body and can often cause or exacerbate depressed moods and/or suicidality. Working with a health professional to wean yourself off different medications or to find alternatives can work wonders.
  7. Rebalance with water and/or a few leaves. Baths, swimming, and even immersing your hands in a sink or bowl can be very therapeutic, especially for people of higher frequency. Spending time with nature and just carrying around a few leaves from a tree in your pocket can also prevent and alleviate illness and depression in very measurable ways.
  8. Express yourself in writing, art, music, and/or dancing. Finding a creative outlet will help you channel and/or even distract you from your pain– as well as prevent the internalization of that discomfort. In addition, you are likely to create some very inspiring pieces for others to enjoy, relate to, and share with even more of the world. Some of the most successful songs and books were written when the writer was upset!
  9. Write a letter of forgiveness to yourself and to anyone or everyone who has done you wrong.  Anger and regret turned inward are tremendous sources of depression. If you can write down  what you and others have done to hurt you and then forgive, you will release numerous blocks inside of you that are created by repressed negativity —and which inhibit your joy and successes. It is unnecessary for you to actually mail the letter or share it with anyone, as long as your forgiveness is heartfelt and genuine.
  10. Communicate with like-minded people who can validate your experiences, offer insight, and share unconditional support and love for you. Since less than 1% of the population truly is of higher frequency, it can feel very lonely being surrounded by relatives, coworkers, and friends who just don’t “get it” yet. Please know that you are not alone and that there are others. Find them online, in groups, or through other people you know so that you can connect and have the support team that we all need to function optimally.
  11. Ask for strength, guidance, and signs from the Universe, Source, Mother Nature, your guides, or whatever term you use for your connection to the Divine. You will feel stronger and be reminded that you are connected to Divine light and extra power at all times. You’ll also see comforting and encouraging signs all around you, such as in number sequences, song lyrics, road signs, and other synchronicities.
  12. Remind yourself that just as day turns to night and night turns to day, you will see the light again—and most likely brighter and longer when it returns again too. Your body is simply a vessel or conductor of currents and cycles that flow in and out. Your body reflects everything you “pick up” in the universe, including the light which is always there and which will dominate your perspective again with each new sunrise.
  13.  Don’t do something permanently damaging to address a very temporary circumstance.  Make a pact with yourself to have a 2 week, 2 month, or 2 year “waiting period” before making any life-altering choices, moves, or decisions when you are in a depressed state. Making the same deal with someone else who has “been there” or is prone to those depths too is also very comforting and effective.
  14. Peek into the future using Tarot cards, your own intuition, and/or consulting a psychic. The future is never as bad as you fear and getting confirmation that good times are ahead can be extremely helpful. Having a roadmap for any challenges in the present or future can also prove very comforting and uplifting.
  15. Touch. As much as isolating and recoiling may be on the radar, touch can be extremely helpful—particularly if the other person is not depressed. A hug, kiss, touch of the hand, manicure, massage, energy work, or other modality can work beautifully— if the practitioner is at least at your frequency level or higher. If the practitioner feels a “mutual exchange of energy” or is more energized from the process, find someone else so that you are not unintentionally “leeched” or drained of your own energies when you are supposed to be the client or recipient of the therapeutic work.
  16. Offer to help someone else with his or her task or dilemma. Nothing helps you reframe or see your own “baggage” as more of a valuable “tool belt” than when you throw yourself into helping others. Your painful experiences, lessons, and missteps make you sincere, compassionate, and insightful. So, offer what you have. Doing so boosts your confidence and satisfaction—and sets your good deeds up for a boomerang effect because we are all connected. Taking action to help another person or even an animal’s situation, rather than wallowing in your own, will quite literally do a world of good.
  17. Adopt the attitude of gratitude with a daily list. Make a list each morning of at least 15 people, places, things, creations, or experiences for which you are grateful. They can be as mundane as running water and your toothbrush or as monumental as Mother Nature and the Universe. The frequency of gratitude will shift your personal frequency and you’ll attract even more people, places, things, emotions, and experiences for which to be grateful.
  18. Give the gift of asking others for help.  As light workers who are here to help move this planet forward, people of high frequency tend to be uncomfortable asking for help and receiving it. Please keep in mind that giving a person or people the opportunity to help you is one of the best gifts that you can give them. If you allow their help to move you forward– so that you can help others– everyone wins!
  19. Make a vision board or collage of what your life would look like in 2 years if you could wave a magic wand and make it happen. The more specific your descriptions are and the more areas of your life you depict, the more excited you will get—and the more surprised you will be when you see it all unfold like magic in the months ahead. There’s a reason why different psychologists and life coaches say “write it down and make it happen.” It can, does, and will happen for you too!
  20. Do whatever raises your frequency, not what works for others. Whether it’s working out, listening to certain music, getting lost in movies, being around others of higher frequency, going to the country or beach, exploring healing modalities…simply do it.  Depending on your nervous system and frequency, mediation and “quiet time” may not put you in your zone as easily. So, do whatever does put you in that empowering and happy place. Remind yourself how it feels. The more time that you spend there, the more that feeling will be contagious both to others and to yourself, even when you are doing other things.
  21. Look back at all of the cycles, synchronicities, pleasant surprises, signs, miracles, and blessings in your life. Know that they continue and will continue to be there for you. Being a light worker is not always easy or happy, but you can find joy in what’s around you, in the beautiful day, and in the promising future. After all, the human form is very temporary. So, enjoy the human experience while you can–and know that “the best is yet to come!”

Conversing with Rattlesnakes: An Introduction to Deep Ecology, by Jeriah Bowser (from the Hampton Institute))

A good friend sent me the link to this essay about Deep Ecology today. I used to do talks about Deep Ecology at local churches. My whole life has become one about Deep Ecology, and it is so thrilling to read another person’s writing that expands the concept for me even more. This is a brilliant essay and I’ve taken the liberty of copying and pasting it here on my blog.

Here is the original link: http://www.hamptoninstitution.org/deep-ecology.html#.VIptwydhSwm

Conversing with Rattlesnakes: An Introduction to Deep Ecology

by Jeriah Bowser

My first experience with the theory of Deep Ecology happened many years before I ever knew about the philosophy or any of its particulars. I had just begun working for a wilderness therapy outfit deep in the blood-red, sandstone heart of Southern Utah, and part of the training for the job required me to read the book “The Anatomy of Peace” by the Arbinger Institute in preparation for a several-day seminar based on the concepts of the book. The book, a staple in the mental health industry, presented a very simple thesis: there are two distinct ways that we see other people, as objects or as people. When we see others as objects, as either a tool to get something we want or as an obstacle in the way of something we want, we essentially dehumanize them and make them “other.” When we see others as humans like ourselves, with similar dreams, goals, insecurities, and fears, it becomes impossible to see them as tools or obstacles, and we must fully recognize the humanity in each party. The Arbinger institute uses some specific language to help us understand and implement this theory: when we are seeing others as humans like ourselves, with hopes, dreams, desires, and fears like us, we have a ‘heart at peace,’ and when we see others as less than ourselves we have a ‘heart at war.’

We all objectify others everyday in large or small ways. It can be as simple as insulting someone who inconveniences you while driving or stereotyping someone you see walking down the sidewalk. It is so common and normalized that it’s terrifying. This objectification is the first step in creating systems that allow for the terrible realities of slavery, genocide, racism, sexism, and colonialism. You cannot treat someone else with disrespect, violence, and hatred until you first dehumanize them in your mind by making them less than human and thus worthy of your disdain. Ironically, objectification actually dehumanizes you rather than your intended victim, as your victim doesn’t lose any of their humanity but it is you that has lost your ability to see another person for who they are. Every day, we make choices to see others as people; or see others as objects. We either have a heart at peace or a heart at war with those who surround us, and whichever approach we choose impacts our world in countless ways.

Although a simple concept, this theory radically altered my view of myself and the world around me. I stayed awake most of that night after the seminar ended, alternating between journaling, star-gazing, praying, and talking to friends on the phone as I struggled to process and comprehend the implications of what I had just learned.

When I headed out the next day to begin my first shift, my head was still reeling with the radical implications of the seminar and book. And this is when I made an alarming discovery. The area of the desert we were occupying just so happened to be a home to rattlesnakes; and quite a few of them. Up to this point in my life, I had approached non-human animals with incredible disrespect and even hatred. I had been taught that humans are the only species with consciousness and value on this planet, and all other animals had existed only to serve us. I had killed many snakes in my life with no hesitation, and was fully prepared to kill many more. On the first night of my shift, I was asked to go round up the rattlesnakes and put them in a mesh bag so they wouldn’t be a threat to our students. Simply moving them would not help, because rattlesnakes are territorial and they would return to the area. I asked if I could just kill them, and my co-guide told me that we weren’t allowed to. I had never handled venomous snakes with the intention of not harming them, and so my co-guide showed me how to use the forked end of my fire-bow to pick up a fat rattler and place him in a mesh bag. I carried the bag far away from our campsite to hang the bag on a tree, as the procedure was to let him out in the morning, unharmed. As I was hanging the bag on the tree, however, the rope slipped out of my hands and the bag landed on the ground, spilling the rattler out at my feet.

My heart jumped to my throat as the snake coiled around my sandal-clad feet. The adrenalin and cortisol rushing through my veins heightened my senses as I watched him flick the air with his tongue, sway his head around as his beady eyes took in the surroundings, and as his warm, scaly skin skittered across my toes. I stayed frozen for several seconds until he was somewhat relaxed and not laying directly on my feet, and then I leapt to safety. I immediately grabbed a large rock and turned around, ready to dispatch my deadly foe with a meteoric deluge. Right before I released my weapon, however, something stopped me.

“Are you seeing this rattlesnake as a person or as an object?” my conscience asked. “Well, its… it’s a rattlesnake…it’s not a person” I stammered, lowering my rock slightly. “Does it matter? How has this rattlesnake hurt you? It could have bit you when it was coiled at your feet, but it didn’t. Why would you now kill it?” my conscience replied. “I… I don’t know. Because I’m scared I guess.” “Yes, that’s right, you are scared of this rattlesnake; and therefore you want to kill it. But imagine if you responded that way to everyone in your life. Or imagine if other people responded to you in the same manner. That wouldn’t be a very fun world to live in now, would it?” my conscience challenged. “I guess you’re right, but this is just a snake, it’s not a person. It’s different, right?” I asked nervously. “Now what exactly do you mean by that, ‘It’s not a person’? How do you know what this snake is thinking and feeling right now. How do you know this snake isn’t a person?” “I… I don’t know, I suppose I should ask it” I replied, feeling ashamed. “Yes, I suppose that’s a good idea”

“Hullo Mr. Rattlesnake, what are thinking right now?”

“I’m thinking that’s a big rock you have in your hands there.”
“Oh yeah this, uh, I’m sorry about that,” I replied as I lowered my rock to the ground.

“Thank you. You are much more pleasant to talk to when you are not holding big rocks over my head.”

“Yes…. I… are you a person?”

“What sort of a question is that? Do you always begin conversations like this?”

“No, I… I’ve never talked to a rattlesnake before is all.”

“Apparently… well, how many have you tried to talk to?”

“You… you are the first.”
“You don’t say, and how many snakes have you dispatched before trying to talk to us?”

“Um… quite a few, actually.”

“And have any of those snakes that you killed attempted to harm you?”
“Well one did… but mostly no.”

“Well that’s unfortunate. What sort of a person are you anyways, going around killing people who haven’t harmed you and who you haven’t even tried to communicate with?”

“Um, I’m not sure how to answer that question.”

“Well, perhaps you should think about it. I’ve got lots of time.”

“So do I, actually…”

And thus my conversation with the rattlesnake began. We talked about our families and our homes, we talked about God, and we discussed philosophy and the finer points of objectification. At the end of our talk, he let me put him back in the bag, under the agreement that I would place him in the sun so he could soak up the last few hours of sunlight, and that I would take him out of the bag first thing in the morning. I agreed, he climbed into the bag, I hung it on the tree where he requested, and I headed back to camp while preparing some elaborate excuse for why it had taken me several hours to hang a snake bag on a tree.

Throughout that summer, I had many conversations with rattlesnakes. I also met squirrels, lizards, and several species of birds who would share their stories and perspectives with me as I traipsed around the desert. The more time I spent out there, the less afraid I became of the snakes, tarantulas, spiders, and other residents of the desert that shared their land with me. As I became less afraid of the wilderness and all it held, my urge to kill, dominate, and conquer diminished as well. There is no need to kill what one does not fear.

I had, completely by accident, discovered the wisdom of Deep Ecology through my conversation with the rattlesnake. To me, the logic of objectification extended quite naturally to other species, even though the Arbinger Institute had made no such claims. If I could objectify a person with black skin, a woman, or an annoying person at the bus-stop, why could I not then objectify a snake, a tarantula, or a tree? Once I had grasped the concept of having a ‘heart at peace’ with other humans, it was only natural that I should have the same perspective towards other species and forms of life; for who is to say that rattlesnakes don’t have personhood?

Despite the rhetorical nature of that last question, there is a very real answer. It has been the job of scientists and philosophers for centuries to prove that rattlesnakes don’t have personhood. Similar to the need to objectify other humans before we can treat them poorly, we also need to objectify other species before we can treat them poorly, and civilization could not exist if we were to actually have a ‘heart at peace’ towards each other, and towards other species. If humanity were to fully understand and grasp the concepts of objectification and decide to have a ‘heart at peace’ from here on out, civilization would collapse overnight.

If we were to acknowledge that cows have feelings, thoughts, emotions, dreams, and fears just like us, it would be impossible to treat them in the way that we do. If we were to acknowledge that people from other countries, people with different beliefs than we do, or people with different skin colors have personhood and are just as valuable as us, then it would be impossible to treat them in the way that we do. Our entire culture is built on us having a ‘heart at war’ with other people and towards other species; it needs us to continually and habitually objectify the world around us in countless ways, thus dehumanizing ourselves from the inside out in the process and furthering the cycle of our own disconnection and alienation.

Of course, I understood none of this at the time, as I was simply enjoying sitting in the sand and talking to a rattlesnake. I didn’t realize that I was slowly deconstructing a 12,000-year-old system of oppression and deception, or that I was slowly healing my soul by refusing to engage in systemically abusive patterns which had been passed down to me by my parents and the culture around me.

The foundations of objectification were much older than I could have imagined, and the implications much more radical than I could ever hope to fully grasp. The Arbinger Institute failed to account for the reason ‘why’ this phenomenon existed, and I doubt if the authors of the book have ever questioned or explored the origins of objectification. Whether they have or not, plenty of others have, and the study of anthropology has provided some incredible insight into this issue, especially in revealing the simple reality that objectification has not existed for the vast majority of human history. Objectification, that is, the ability to see another living being as an object to be controlled, manipulated, or destroyed, first appears alongside the rise of civilization, around 8,000 years ago. The first slaves, the first militaries, the first subjugation of women (Patriarchy), the first serfs and servants, all appear for the first time in human history shortly after the Neolithic revolution. This, of course, was the dawn of totalitarian agriculture and the moment of the very first objectification of them all: the objectification of a seed. The ability to look at a seed and see not a conscious, autonomous plant fetus, but rather a tool to be forcibly planted, irrigated, fertilized, and harvested for human consumption.

Once Seeds had been objectified, it was only a matter of time until Trees, Goats, Fish, Dogs, and other Humans would fall under the scythe of Empire and civilization. The growth of Empire necessitated a radically altered way of viewing the world that facilitated destruction and unlimited growth, as it is impossible to treat another living being with hatred and violence if you have not first objectified them, dehumanized them, and made them worthy of such abuse. Domestication is an inherently violent and debasing activity, as you are forcibly removing another living creature from their home (the wild) and imprisoning them while making them physically and mentally dependent on you for their survival and happiness. Along with the growth of civilization (domestication and conquest) came the growth of objectification. The first organized militaries appeared around 5000 BCE, and carried out the logic of objectification on a massive scale, as the armies of Sumer clashed with surrounding tribes and massacred other humans on a scale unprecedented in the history of humanity. The taking of slaves and the subjugation of women also marked this era of increasing objectification, as what is so different about enslaving a goat from enslaving another human?

This trend of growth, conquest, domination, and objectification continued unchecked throughout the next several thousand years, as the logic and processes of civilization grew and encompassed the whole of the planet. Martin Buber, a Jewish philosopher in the early 20th century, offered his critique of objectification in his essay, “I and Thou” in 1923. Buber posited that there are two ways in which humans see other humans: the I-Thou relationship (seeing another as an equal human) and the I-It relationship (seeing another human as less than human.) His observation is especially poignant when one realizes that Buber was teaching his philosophy of objectification during the rise of Hitler’s Germany and he witnessed, firsthand, the devastating effects of the I-It relationship with the German State and the Jewish people.

Buber’s philosophy influenced a host of thinkers throughout the world, as it very clearly exposed the logic of Empire for what it was, and illustrated how humans could commit such horrible atrocities such as those seen during World War II. Unfortunately, Buber did not extend his critique of objectification to other species, but left that in the hands of Norwegian philosopher Arne Næss, who created the terminology and philosophy of Deep Ecology in the 1980s.

Næss understood that the environmental movement which arose during the latter half of the 19th century had a serious flaw – it was only concerned with protecting the Earth because of its importance to humans, not because other living creatures have a right to exist; thus the distinction between ‘Deep’ and ‘Shallow’ Ecology. Næss realized that, as long as arguments for conservation were limited to human utilitarianism, the movement was doomed from the start. His influence helped spark a radical return to the roots of humanity’s interactions with the natural world; a resurgence of ‘original ecology’ that attempted to deconstruct the roots and influence of objectification on our species and our planet.

Deep Ecology undermines the very ideological foundations of our culture and of civilization in general, as it requires a radical departure from the logic and processes of Empire. Deep Ecology calls us to be wholly human as we embrace our own potential to fully engage and connect with other forms of life in a healthy and meaningful way. Deep Ecology requires a profound humility as we acknowledge the emotions, feelings, experiences, and wisdom of other species and other forms of life. Deep Ecology demands resistance; resistance to the dominant ideology of arrogant anthropocentrism, resistance to the dehumanizing effects of objectification, resistance to the daily demands of civilization which wreak havoc on our world and our psyche, and resistance to the myth that humans are the only form of life with any value on this planet.

Deep Ecology is, quite simply, a return to a way of being that our species has known for over two million years, but has only very recently forgotten; and it is imperative that we return to this ancient wisdom if we intend to continue living on this planet. We must all eventually face this reality. Maybe you will discover this wisdom through writings and lectures on Deep Ecology, maybe you will discover it through conversations with friends and mentors, or maybe you will be lucky enough to find your own rattlesnake who is willing to talk and reveal his wisdom to you. Either way, the call of Deep Ecology is present, and requires only that you stop talking long enough to listen to a myriad of voices of life that exist on our planet.

“…They have not forgotten the Mysteries” – Marion Zimmer Bradley

“…They have not forgotten the Mysteries,” she said,
“they have found them too difficult. They want a God
who will care for them, who will not demand that they
struggle for enlightenment, but who will accept them
just as they are, with all their sins, and take away their sins
with repentance. It is not so, it will never be so,
but perhaps it is the only way the unenlightened
can bear to think of their Gods.”

Connecting with Earth Mother via “Earthing”

I’ve been ‘grounding’ or ‘earthing’ for the past few weeks (actually years, but I get off track at times). Feels so nice to go out first thing in the morning and stand barefoot on the ground. A great way to get a charge of good ‘ole Earth Mother fresh energy in the morning. Stood in the snow yesterday morning in Garrett County, MD. But today it’s misting/raining in Frederick County, MD, and I just could not make myself go out in the rain to do it earlier this morning. Committed to make it happen at some point in the day.

A Qi Gong master teacher and healer recommended this to me for healing from lymphoma several years ago. Though his intent was not to connect with Earth Mother as my intent truly is. He taught about the healing aspects of releasing the free radicals that build up in our bodies, when we stand barefoot outside on the bare ground and allow the energy exchange to happen between us and Earth. It’s quite therapeutic. And very highly recommended.

Here is a Dr. Mercola article that explains the benefits of “Earthing” in more detail.

Though I encourage people to also consciously connect with Earth Mother as they do it, and send their love down to Mother and invite her love energy back up into them. It’s a power spiritual practice. Now I need to go out later today and catch up on my Earth Mother Connection… !   ;~)

Here’s a video clip from Trentham Estate in England that actually has a formal “Barefoot Walk”. I love their creativity with this!
