Diva Rambling: Conflict of Interest….

Conflict of Interest

We have been discussing keeping our gardens weedless and focusing on abundant harvests. The sad truth is if you are a light-worker and have the selfless habits of taking a stand for righteousness and good you will be tested by the world. Everyone these days seems to be looking to be incensed about our every next word. When we take a stand for what we believe is right people will rail up against us and cause controversy and conflict. Here is where we once again must remember our focus.

I recently read a great thought for focusing. To paraphrase it read as follows…Colonel Goethals (builder of the Panama Canal) received great strife over his project. One day one of his assistants had had enough. He asked the Colonel, “Aren’t you going to do anything about all of this criticism?” “Yes,” replied The colonel. “What then?” asked the assistant. To which the Colonel replied…”Finish the Canal.”

Whenever we take a stand for right over wrong, good over evil, there will always, always be those who rise up to cause us grief and stress. I dare say that some of us get this just by being a light in the darkness. Our very being is a “conflict of interest to the forces of evil”, Evil hates light. If we are sincere and our message is true then who can stand against us? No one as the Universe has our back at all times. If we truly walk our intended path of creative altruism then we will prevail. Never let your cage be rattled by the dark, small minds of evil and disdain. Remember, our task is to finish our job (our intended path).

Diva Rambling: Monitor Our Expectations…

Monitor Your Expectations…

We have been discussing growing the perfect garden of thoughts. What we also need to remember is to monitor our expectations. Most of us wake up each day with thoughts of where the day will go, what the day should look like, and how our expectations should manifest. In short we are swimming up stream against the rapids; When We should be going with the flow.

I had a meditation once where I was lying on my back in a large river of rapids culminating at a giant waterfall. Instead of fear and anticipation of the bad outcome at the bottom of the falls, I placed myself in the hand of God and that boat carried me down the river, lowered me gently to the bottom of the falls and on into calm water. What a sense of peace I had when I came out of that meditation.

Had I immediately tried to reason myself in control, flailing to get to the side, out of the natural flow of the stream, I would have ended up a hot mess. Always choose to “go with the flow”…as they say. We will all wake up many mornings in a state of “expectation”. Some with manifesting that luxury car, a huge mcmansion, winning the lotto, or a dream vacation. We focus on things which clutter the mind and grow the weeds of discontent. We live in the state of expectation and try to live and act to do whatever to “GET WHAT WE WANT”!

If we fail to weed the garden of expectation we end up with failure. Many a garden has been overgrown by needless expectation. When we step away from trusting the Universe to provide all provision it wants us to have, we contaminate our garden with weeds of discontent. Not the world, not the Universe, not God, not other humans… its all on us!

We keep talking about focusing on the right things so that the genie in the bottle gives us the perfect outcome all the time. When you live in a state of wanting and expectation, the genie in the bottle grants the wishes of your thoughts all the time. You get want and endless expectations.

How can we better honor the flow of the stream of thoughts? How do we practice NOT giving in to the thoughts that keep us swimming ceaselessly upstream? There are numerous ways as we’ve discussed in the past. However, lets keep it simple and practice focusing on these three.

1. Wait for the Universe/God. Let the perfect plan for our lives manifest in its own time; not ours.

2. Trust the Universe/God. Know, that at all times, there is a perfect plan for us and the all knowing Universe/One Source has set it into motion at birth.

3. One expectation only…that we live each day in the “Universal Flow” of our perfect stream. Know that when we hold fast to this thought the Universe will reward us according to our perfect plan.

If we can do these three things daily we will not join the world of chaos that dwells in discontent, discouragement, and failure. We will trust the Universal Plan knowing that all perfect expectations will manifest in our life. With belief and practice we can make it so.

Diva Rambling: Fall Harvest….

Fall Harvest…

So far we’ve talked about where to plant our gardens. Since the seeds are our thoughts, the focus on positive energy and thoughts, is our fertilizer, and pulling weeds keeps our garden clean and abundant, then we get to the harvest.

How do we get a proper harvest? Easy, you’ve done the work the Universe expected you to do in fulfillment of its perfect plan for you…all you have to do is sit back and watch the Universe itself provide the perfect flow of joy and abundance into your world. Are you getting the picture yet?

Can it be that simple. YES! The work itself is hard, and keeping focus even harder… for some of us. However, working in the flow of all that is available reaps the perfect rewards. It is that simple. Are you getting the picture yet?

Remember if you spend your time doubting the Universal Laws and trying to prove them wrong (form follows thought) then the genie of the lamp will give you just that… doubt and opposite rewards. You still get your reward!!! What rewards will you choose? Namaste, the Queen Cronista

Diva Musing: Weeds in Your Garden…

Weeds in your Garden

I mention with passion and redundancy the FACT that “…form follows thought!”. Our mind is a garden of what ever we make it. If we focus on negative thoughts day in and day out then the weeds of negativity become thick and hard to extract.

If we plant our seeds with optimistic delight and water with a flow of positive energy our garden will never have to fear being overcome with the ghastly weeds that infect so many gardens. Look on the bright side, only see the beautiful blooms that are coming through your positive thought fertilization of your mind. Picture your table blessed with vases of blooms that you created through this discipline of thought.

Keep the negative people away from your auric field. They are the roots of the devil weed that can consume positive discipline. If all of this is just too “woo-woo” for you, then just remember your basic physics…”form follows thoughts”! What are you choosing to manifest in the world today? Namaste, The Queen Cronista

Diva Rambling: The Truth Gets Hurt….

Truth Gets Hurt

In our modern day chaos, the old adage “The Truth Hurts!” seems to be gaining momentum more and more. As the human race stomps truths of every sort into the ground to find the lie that makes them feel best or serves their own personal needs best. It seems the adage should now be more like …”The Truth Gets Hurt!”

The dark energy being produced by this behavior is quite honestly destroying our world. We have no one to blame but us. Lightworkers can only do what they can do to keep the energy up. However, the negativity and lies are becoming a struggle for those of us who care and try to keep the light bright.

Lightworkers, keep doing what you are doing. In the end light always triumphs over darkness; sadly not without struggle. Namaste, The Queen Cronista

Diva Rambling: For Every Season…

Wikipedia says…This article is about the song. For the Byrds album, see Turn! Turn! Turn! (album). For other uses, see Turn, Turn, Turn.

“Turn! Turn! Turn!”, sometimes known as “Turn! Turn! Turn! (To Everything There Is a Season)”, is a song written by Pete Seeger in the late 1950s. The lyrics, except for the title, which is repeated throughout the song, and the final two lines, are adapted word-for-word from the English version of the first eight verses of the third chapter of the biblical Book of Ecclesiastes. The song was originally released in 1962 as “To Everything There Is a Season” on folk group the Limeliters‘ RCA album Folk Matinee and then some months later on Seeger’s own The Bitter and the Sweet.[1]

Let’s break it down and discuss….

To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:
A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, a time to reap that which is planted;
A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up;
A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;
A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together;
A time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away;
A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.

The lyrics are taken almost verbatim from the book of Ecclesiastes, as found in the King James Version (1611) of the Bible[2] (Ecclesiastes 3:1-8), though the sequence of the words was rearranged for the song. Ecclesiastes is traditionally ascribed to King Solomon who would have written it in the 10th century BC, but believed by a significant group of biblical scholars to date much later, up to the third century BC.[3]

My point today is that all of the information above confirms that everything has a season…even words. Words may come and go in some form or another, but they repeat themselves to us throughout history in some way. Words pop into someones head and they get put out to the great multiverse in that season just the way they were meant to help others. They may comfort, they may teach, they may uplift or make sad; regardless they have impact in their season.

We need to learn to digest the words we get each day as the Universe’s way of giving us a hug we need for whatever reason. The Universe (God/one source) is there guiding and teaching always. We only need to be smart enough to learn to listen….Namaste, The Queen Cronista.
