Compassion for the Ignorant

It is not an exaggeration to see how special we are. We transgender women have much to show the world.
Ever time we walk about in public, we are communicating a reality especially to those that have yet to see us with open eyes.
We seem to almost always get the same reaction from strangers. People will either love us or hate us. For those that hate us and look at us with disgust, it is especially important that we do not reflect their despise. People that do not understand us and may even hate us need our help, because they are in a perilous way. Their display of prejudice is a display of a disconnected mind, and this is where we can step in with the hopes of helping them change their dangerous ways. This is our golden opportunity to be a beacon for humanity. That’s what makes us so potentially wonderful, not that we are transgender necessarily, but that we can serve as beacons of light because we can seem so different to people that do not know us.
It may seem an inflated ideal to think we can change the world in such ways. But, the human mind takes in an experience like a seed. That seed once planted begins to grow within an individual until manifestation.
I have on many occasions experienced first hand the birth within a stranger of a new way to see the world by virtue of my communicating with them with a smile and kind gesture even after noting their initial despise for me. I have witnessed on occasion, an expression of conceding on the faces of one that speaks with us and sees that we are just “people” after all. However, if I note a particular strong repulsion from someone toward me, I have found that “silence” is the most dignified response and that silence communicates something tremendous.
The point is, that no matter the response to us, if we can understand the compassion these lost people need as a result of their ignorance, we not only will shine with the holiest dignity that is our birth right, but in the process may help an ignorant one loose their ignorance by virtue of our glory and kindness. We really are so much bigger!

“You may feel sympathetic toward others and experience a deeper sense of compassion and understanding. You may find yourself able to identify with the struggles of those around you and seek ways to create more happiness and peace in the world…You could also make it your mission to spread compassion to everyone you encounter today through kind words and an understanding demeanor. If you set an intention to be helpful and supportive in every situation, the universe will provide you with the opportunities to assist others. Choosing to extend kindness and compassion to others empowers us with joy and satisfaction. Our feelings of compassion for others can sometimes feel overwhelming, especially if we are unsure of the best ways to communicate them. When we choose to understand that even small gestures of kindness can have a profound impact on the lives of others, we derive a sense of empowerment from being able to help in any way. As we extend kindness and compassion to others, we benefit from a feeling of joy and satisfaction that comes from knowing that we were able to make a difference in their lives…Your compassion for others can best be expressed by being kind and helpful to everyone you meet today. “

Mirrors

Look into the face of another
And see yourself every time
We react to each other
The same way a mirror reacts to our image
Smile at it
It will smile back
Frown at it
It will frown back
Why did the mirror not smile at me?
Perhaps I did not smile at it
If I do smile at it
And if it does not smile back
Will I become the mirror?
Or I pass the limitation of its reflection
To see me?

Intuition


Intuition was once a womens privilege, and at times a discrediting point of view in a mans world. Now, we are coming to understand the forces behind our senses and intuition or feelings or emotion are now seen to play a key part in how we navigate through our lives.
The Goddess has arrived:) and now men and women are beginning to understand her infinite wisdom as we utilize her gift of intuition.
Peace

LET YOUR FEELINGS BE YOUR GUIDE

In every moment that you are awake or conscious, you are literally radiating a signal, not so different from a radio signal, and the Universe accepts that signal as your point of attraction. Every moment that you are conscious or awake, you are literally pulsing an electronic vibration, and the entire Universe is accepting that electronic vibration as your point of attraction and is matching it with other things that are like it.

Your job is to start monitoring your feelings so you really know what is joy, and what is appreciation, what is love and what is sadness, what is anxiety, what is frustration, what is anger. When you can detect subtle shifts in your feelings, you will be able to do subtle adjustments in your vibration which will bring you the ability to follow your bliss

As you begin to play with your emotions, or be aware of the way you feel, when you pay attention to the way that you feel, what you are going to notice is ... your emotions let you know, your emotions are your guidance system, that let you know how you are vibrating. And it is so important to understand that, because when you know how you are vibrating, then you understand why it is that you are attracting what you are getting.~ Abraham-Hicks

INTUITIVE QUOTES OF THE DAY
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

“Without this playing with fantasy no creative work has ever yet come to birth. The debt we owe to the play of the imagination is incalculable. The reaction which is now beginning in the West against the intellect in favor of feeling, or in favor of intuition, seems to me a mark of cultural advance, a widening of consciousness beyond the too narrow limits of a tyrannical intellect.”
~ C.G. Jung, Commentary, The Secret of the Golden Flower

“Stop second-guessing yourself. You know what you know, you know? That inner tickling is your highest truth. It will serve you well; the backfire comes when you deny or discount it. Take in information, from all sides, yet trust, in the end, that you - and you alone - know what's best for you. If all day you pine to paint, then that is what you must do. If you ache to walk beside the ocean, find a way to get there. Without complete trust, you are left only to rust.”
~ Rachel Snyder

"The vibration that you interpret as vision, the vibration that you interpret as sound, or the vibrations that you interpret as smell or taste or touch, these are all vibrations that you have learned to translate through your five physical senses. But there are other vibrations that you cannot decipher through those senses. And so, you must use another sense. Some call it your sixth sense; we call it your "feelings" or your emotional center, that feeling that you get in your solar plexus. Those emotions that you feel are also interpreters of vibration."
~ Abraham-Hicks

LEARNING FROM INTUITION

Intuitive awareness is more than just an indicator of how adept we are at accessing psychic perceptions. It is an indication of how attuned we are to our spiritual side.

When we allow ourselves to learn from our intuition, to move with it, and to grow with it, we truly progress, even, or perhaps especially, when we stumble and make mistakes.

When we develop and rely on our abilities, discern inner truths, and apply that awareness on the physical level, we open the doorway to manifesting our true highest selves.
