Overcome The Dark Side

Choose to Overcome the Dark Side

GreaterLove-AngelReadingsByZARAThe whole world is now undergoing an incredible shift. In a very brief amount of time, we have gone from what was always considered normal, into something very different and unknown. What people need to understand is that since we are moving from one age–the Age of Pisces–into another age–the Age of Aquarius, we, as a collective, are now having a huge opportunity for positive change. It is now possible for humanity to enter a time of greater love, compassion and true spirituality, and a time of greater freedom. This possibility will only come about if we make the right choices, thereby consciously using this time to our highest spiritual and practical advantage.

On the other side of it, the dark side is trying to use the malleability of this time to trick humanity into agreeing to give away their  freedom, critical thinking and personal power. They know their time is running short, and they are trying to trick us into giving them an extension of their power over us.

Here’s a quote to ponder:

Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.”

The choice is up to you and up to all humanity.

Every person is created by God, and every one of us has personal power and the ability to think critically. We need to use that power and ability to not give away our power, and instead believe in God and in ourselves, and have faith that by keeping our personal power and freedoms rather than giving them away, that we shall have passed this spiritual test, and shall not only get through the difficult dilemmas we are now experiencing. We shall open ourselves to the incredible healing that will then easily flow in from God and the Universe.

ThinkYourself-AngelReadingsByZARAIn order to outsmart the dark side, one needs to think and be smart. The dark side is very tricky, and will seldom tell us when they are trying to deceive us. They do, however, occasionally tell us the truth like it’s a joke. They know in advance that we will laugh and  not take them seriously, yet they have told us the truth. The reason they do this is because they use the joke as a disclaimer. Their claim then becomes that they told you, and since you didn’t actually protest or take them seriously, whatever they do to you, they claim. According to the tenets they live by, they then believe that whatever misdeed they perpetrate on you does not affect their karma. Of course, they are wrong, but that is what they believe.

It’s important to be awake and wary, because the dark side often uses this kind of trickery against unwitting victims, and although the victim doesn’t consciously realize it at the time, in a way, they are somewhat complicit. This is because they were told and yet they did nothing to protect themselves. The dark side looks upon this as agreement.

The good news is that dark side has NO power over you unless you allow it.

That’s an incredible and wonderful truth. Once you understand this, that knowledge will help to protect you. This is the reason it’s very important for you to use critical thinking all the time. If you do not use your God-given ability to think, the dark side, which is very smart, will think for you.

So now that we are going through a hugely uncomfortable shift, what should we do?

Here’s a list of helpful things you can do:

1- Stay calm 

StayCalmThroughChange-AngelReadingsByZARAIt’s important to stay calm so you can think. Sometimes, when we become agitated, our brains do not work as well as when we are calm, and you want to be able to think clearly so you can use your mind and other senses to keep you safe.

In order to get yourself into a state of calmness, my recommendation is that you stop what you are doing and take a few deep breaths. When you take some deep breaths, you oxidize your brain and body, and then you can think more clearly.

 Right now, do this: Close your eyes and consciously take in a few deep breaths.  Notice that by doing this, you already feel better and safer, and it’s easier for you to think.

2. Use common sense

When you really think about it, some of what you hear from outside sources doesn’t make any sense. Yet people can easily abandon common sense and follow the herd, regardless of the irrationality of what the crowd is doing.  I feel it’s important to critically think about whatever’s happening, and frequently reassess if what you’re doing, or what other people are doing, is making sense. You don’t want to be like a lemming that jumps off the cliff just because others are doing it, because then you could end up as mangled and damaged as the other lemmings that jumped before you.  Instead, stop and ponder. Think for yourself.

3. Pray and meditate

 Meditation is a form of prayer that many people have become accustomed to. Especially if you are already practiced in it, it can be an excellent method of communing with God. If this is not something you are practiced in, then simple prayer is also a good method of consciously communing and connecting with the Creator. The Truth is that God is in charge, and if you recognize and attune yourself to God, you will instantly feel better and you’ll receive blessings and protection as well.

4. Be good to yourself, your family and people you love

 and thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength. The second is this, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these.”  -Matthew 12: 30-31

In the above Biblical quote, the admonition to love your neighbor has a prerequisite of loving one’s self. It’s important to love and take care of yourself–not from a superficial or narcissistic point of view–but from an understanding and acceptance that your soul is connected to God. With that in mind, it is easy to love and accept yourself. Then, from that point, it is easy to love and accept others.

At this time, while nearly all of humanity is holed up in their homes, it’s especially important to be loving and understanding to yourself and to others. Love will help to keep you alive and well.

5. Eat healthy foods

Since everyone seems to be at home right now, I think it’s especially important to remind yourself that what you eat affects not only your weight, but  how you feel and how you think. This is not a time to eat empty and nutritionless food that makes you fat, depressed and lazy. Instead, right now is an amazing opportunity to get into better health through eating right. Eating plenty of fresh fruit, vegetables, nuts and seeds, in addition to drinking plenty of water helps you to achieve optimal health, weight, positivity and optimism. It also helps you to be calm and to think clearly.

6. Think and research

I feel it’s always important to look into things yourself. Don’t simply accept what you’re told without checking for yourself.  Instead, think critically, and do your own research. We all know that appearances can be deceiving, so it’s important to check into what is being told to you with a critical mind, and find out if it is true or not.

Now that we have the Internet with vast amounts of information miraculously available to us at our fingertips, it’s very easy to look things up and uncover facts and different points of view. By doing diligent research,  you can potentially figure out for yourself whether what you’re being told is accurate or not.

7. Avoid overexposing yourself to mass media (Turn off your TV)

Too much television is not good for either your emotions or your body. These days especially, with all the news being about illness and fear, it’s more important than ever to not overexpose your body and emotions  to that perpetual onslaught. I have noticed that most people are convinced that if they do not listen to television news, they won’t find out what’s going on. I have purposely not watched television for 22 years, yet I always find out what’s going on. I find that if something really important and momentous happens, everyone talks about it, so I never have to worry about being uninformed about anything. By turning off the TV, I have been able to find a place of peace inside me that I do not allow to be disrupted by the negative and harsh vibrations of television–particularly television news. If you want to feel good and be happy, I recommend you do the same.

8. Listen to calming, relaxing, high-quality music

Music is composed of vibrations that affect our thoughts, emotions and the health of our bodies. Some of the music you regularly listen to could be loud, discordant and harsh. This is not the type of music to listen to if you want to be in a peaceful and harmonious state. In fact, if you want to get healthy, and/or maintain the good health you already enjoy, it’s important to listen to harmonious classical music such as Mozart or Beethoven, or, alternatively, semi-classical harmonious music. Your body and emotions will thank you.

9. Bring fresh-cut flowers into your home

OvercomeFear-AngelReadingsByZARAEverything in God’s creation has a vibration, and, despite the delicacy and loveliness of flowers, they actually have a very powerful vibratory energy against the dark side. In other words, having fresh cut flowers in your home, and changing the water regularly, can be not only purifying, but also protective—protective for your emotions, and may also help you have happier thoughts.

10. Have faith that everything is in Divine Order, and that nothing can happen to you unless God allows it to happen.

I feel that the huge fear associated with the issue we’re all dealing with is actually either the fear of death, or the fear of the unknown, so those are the fears I will address:

Have you ever had a time in your past when you might have died, but you didn’t?  When I’ve asked people that question in the past, almost all of them told me that they could remember times when they could have died, but something happened to save them just in time. I, myself, have had near-death experiences several times. What I have come to understand is that until it is a person’s time, they can go through all kinds of close calls, but until it’s their time, they will survive.

By reflecting upon this Truth, you will realize that there is no cause for fear. You will live as long as you are supposed to live, and when it is your time, you will go to another place.

There is no death. There is only transition. Personally, I love life on earth, and I am in no hurry to pass from here. Yet I know that each of us has only so much time in this incarnation, and that after that, we go to exactly the place that’s right for us.

In terms of the unknown, I feel that the best thing you can do is to do your own research and get informed.  It is amazing how gaining knowledge can ease both your nervousness and your fear. It will also help you to relax and feel good.

11. Do whatever you can do to get right with God

EnjoyFamily-AngelReadingsByZARASince the world is going through a radical shift right now, and most of us are stuck at home, I feel that now is a very good time to pause and reflect about your life, and check within to determine how happy you are about the way you have been doing things up to the present, and what you feel you need to change. Many people, for example, now spending more time with their families due to staying at home, are discovering that spending more time with their children and loved ones is better and more positive than what they were doing before. They’re finding that much of their time before was unnecessarily hectic, and that by slowing down and spending more time together, they are experiencing more love and understanding for one another.

Just notice whatever you need to change, and then change it. Pray, meditate, reflect. Do whatever you need to do. Be honest with yourself. Be willing to admit your mistakes, and determine to make a change for the better.  Ask God to help you, and proceed with love, openness and humility. Doing so will help to heal your life, and give you a more meaningful existence in the future.

12. Be in this world but not of it, and recognize that God is in charge.

As stated above, each of us is only here for a limited amount of time. I would like to think we’ll all be here forever, but I know that’s not the truth. In fact, being in a body on earth allows each of us to have a spiritual adventure. Yet most have forgotten the spiritual and have been wholly focused on the physical instead.

When people seek happiness through the material, it brings an imbalance on the side of materialism that often brings unhappiness and heartache. For this and other reasons, it is important to enjoy your journey in life, but never forget you are primarily a spiritual being having a physical adventure. As I stated before, God is the one who is in charge, and by prayer and meditation, you can tune into Source, and thereby live a joy-filled and meaningful life.
