being a closeted trans is difficult enough, but i stumbled across a secular lgbt group here in the philippines who is just starting. they needed more writers so i volunteered. i babbled about the same-sex marriage approved in america and ireland. and then i submitted it to the president anD THEY MADE ME LEAD OF THE WRITING DEPARTMENT
see i think phones should have like an option for a “resting” text tone and a “in use” text tone
coz I always fluctuate between loud longer text tones (so I can hear it if I’m not near my phone) and shorter more subtle ones (so I don’t need to hear the same 3 second tune 50 times in a row while I’m holding the damn thing) but like… If I could have it so when my phone isn’t being used it plays the long loud one and if it’s like next to me or in my hand it just gently prods my ears that’d be v cool
I’m so fuckin tired tbh
Chakras are the energy centers in our body. The word “chakra” means “wheel”. We have seven main chakras and each chakra is located on a plexus (center of a network of nerves). These energy centers are responsible for keeping our spiritual, physical and mental aspects in balance. This subtle system is the same in every human. What is different is how we use it and with what quality.
Each chakra is ruled by a planet. Chakras display the nature and characteristics of their ruling planets. Birth charts, which are formulated according to our date and time of birth, show the aspects the planets were in when we were born and how they relate with each other. While our birth chart describes our spiritual, physical and mental aspects, it also helps us see how the planets shape us and affect our chakras and energy body. The first breath that we took on this earth has made its mark on every cell of our being and has become an unseperable part of us. Entire humanity shared that moment with us and life started flowing with the next moment. However, that moment of our birth spreads over our entire life and gives us the responsibility to use “that moment” to the benefit of all humans. Only we hold the chance to make that moment perfect. We can feel that our life is part of the universe as we get to know ourselves and balance our being.
The inner knowing in us becomes an antenna more receptive to the frequencies of the universe it becomes the ear to it’s voice that only our hearts can listen to, and translates them as messages/information, all through a guiding intuitive process. Of course it’s our free will to have it or understand it so if we open our “Eye”.
Our “I’s” can be used to label us in good but most often are misplaced with greed, power, hate, seperation, ego. –>(I hate.., I dont like.., I’m tired of.., I dislike.. I can’t.. etc) When you close your “I’s” your heart opens, why? Remember the mind is alive in constant electrical thrive and has no choice but to focus on something.
You are always aware even if you don’t have conscious thought that you are aware of being aware, that is your vortex third eye open, Well.. to the limited point you allow it to as I mentioned before. Your heart then opens in a point of view of compassion where higher understanding settles in you, not through only thinking (mind) but through emotion (heart). Your eye is then aware of something you forgot about or at times is new to the soul and brings you back to the healing energy you and I know as compassion, forgiveness, peace, bliss, LOVE back in the heart.
We all need it, but it can be so difficult to give. This grid is
programmed to send the energy vibration of Unconditional Love out into
the world to counter hatred, prejudice, violence and other negative
energy. You can receive its energy by enlarging the picture on your
screen and meditating on letting Unconditional Love fill your heart for
several minutes. You can add your energy
to the grid and its work by enlarging the picture and meditating on or
praying for Unconditional Love/Divine Love to replace the negative
energy on our planet. As the crystals work by amplifying our thoughts
and prayers, there is no need to be concerned about whether or not this
interferes with religion or lack of religion, the crystals support what
you believe. You can also set up your own grid at home. The second
center stone is Spirit Quartz/Amethyst from my personal collection. Kits
for the grid are found at the links below. Blessings, Debbie Elaine
