A New World is Coming

I’ve been ruminating about this post for a while now. I’m treading carefully, as I don’t want to come across as preachy. This faith is different to religions. As only You can get through your awakening. No one can drag you there. It’s totally in your hands.

Once you awaken, all these downloads will come in and it becomes painful to keep quiet and pretend that everything is normal.

The universe knew that I was struggling to write this, so they sent messages to inspire. Most of the messages came through conversations with random people. If you ever have an urge to say something to someone, it’s probably the universe guiding you. A small comment might seem insincificant, but it may be a puzzle piece for someone. You have more of an impact than you think you do!

Someone messaged me saying

“Energy. That sounds like a fairytale.”

That’s because it is! The media is full of clues about how the universe works. What’s the main thing we learn from fairytales?

Love Always Wins.

In fairytales, it always gets to a point where it looks like the villains are about to win. But everytime, something miraculous happens, the heroes pull through, and save the world.

The same will happen in our reality.

Having a chat with a Christian lady, she was talking about armegedon and saying that it didn’t make sense how it is predicted that “People will fight with God.”

God is inside us.

Before that beautiful loving energy can come through, we need to shed the paradigms that keep us comfortable. As the old paradigms are consumed by flames, we may cling on to them or try to revive them, this won’t work and just lengthen the painful process until you surrender to the darkness.

After the fire has settled, a beautiful Phoenix will rise from the ashes. That’s you, fully in your power!

When people talk about “the end of the world” they normally expect huge dramatic things to happen externally. It might do, but this will be a reflection of the inner shift that we’ll be going through.

No one is coming to save you.

You’re the Hero!

I’m soo proud of you, for all the work you’ve already done on yourself and all that you will do in the future. It’s been hard, and it will continue to get harder.

Have faith light being. We are giving birth to a new world. Birthing is not an easy process.

This song came out last year when I was having my awakening, gives me goosebumps and makes me cry everytime!

Breaking Internalised Capitalism

I’m back from my travels. Currently isolating at my dad’s house. So I’ve got plenty of time to write!

This post is pretty out there… I’m trusting the universe that you are ready to receive this message.

Does emotional attachment affect physical items?

Last year, before I started travelling, I said goodbye to most of my stuff. Keeping a few boxes full of sentimental things at my dad’s house.

By just living with a few items in my backpack, I realised how much I needed (not very much!)

I would often find items in the streets of Athens, and add it to my collection. In turn giving away good quality things. With the sense of, if I give to the universe, the universe will give it three times back to me. A gift to the gods if you will!

Looking through what I decided to keep, I felt a disconnect from the physical item, but not the story that came with it.

For example my childhood teddy…

I’m not embarrassed to share, that it was hard parting with my teddy. Teddy is a professional-on-demand cuddler. I would always cuddle my teddy when sad or anxious.

It feels strange being with teddy again. It looks the same, but it feels different. Gives me an alternative universe vibe.

I’ve learnt how to comfort myself without my teddy. Losing attachment towards it. Dealing with emotions that come up, on my own. Instead of using something else to cope with it.

Taking on the very literal term of “emotional baggage.”

In the brilliant film the Labyrinth, Sarah is on an adventure in a weird world, rescuing her brother from goblin King David Bowie.

Relived to find herself in her room. “It was all a dream” she exclaimed, firmly grounding herself to teddy Lancelot.

Then this creepy hoarder lady makes Sarah connect with 3d items. But Sarah starts to remember, there was something she was meant to do.

By letting go of her attachments, the simulated version of her house, starts to crumble.

Capitalism has made us focus on the physical. We spend most of our lives, making money.

Is this really what we’re meant to be doing?

Does this disconnect us from our true self?

Is there something we should be remembering?

An Athens Love Story P2

My main reason why I love Athens is in my other blog post so if you haven’t read that then… Go read it!

Okay, now thinking about it, perhaps this is the top reason why I love Greece…

Greek people.

Gosh you lot are quite something! I don’t like to generalise, but hey I’m going to generalise. I feel like I’m allowed to, since I’ve lived here for a while now and notice significant differences between Greeks and English people.

I feel like there’s two main type of Greek people.

The religious Greeks.

If you’ve read my other posts, you might have come to the conclusion that I dislike religion. Although I have a lot of constructive criticism to give to the churches. I won’t go into that now… I’ll save it for another blog post.

This is a Love story after all!

What do I love about religious people?

Spirituality gives people purpose and direction.

As Buddhists and Meeseeks say “existence is pain.”

When bad situations enter our lives, we might see this as a test from God/Universe.

How do we show up? How does our experience shape us? Do we let our past decions define who we are today?

Eutopia project

The use of rituals is prehistoric.

Many of us partake in rituals without realising, whether it be celebrating a wedding, new year, birthday or grieving someone at a funeral. These events help us connect with our emotions and reflect.

Our busy lives take over, and often these events become the only rituals we observe.

While religious people, who often pray; to give thanks, ask for strength and forgiveness with whatever they’re dealing with. Surrendering what they can’t change to the universe/God. Giving all that weight and power to a higher being, with the belief that they will help you overcome it, is a mindful practice.

The act of positioning your hands in a certain way, for example bringing the palms together in a prayer position “connects the right and the left hemispheres of the brain and connects with spirituality/god/divinity. It promotes respect for oneself and others. It is considered a natural remedy for stress and anxiety and is useful for entering into a meditative state.” (from kooshoo.com)

It’s common to see people praying and making the sign of the cross on themselves, when they touch the head, the chest then both shoulders. The act of connecting a physical action with a spiritual belief is powerful in itself. Mind, body and spirit are connected. Practicing these rituals daily, help us connect with our higher self/intuition/god.

The Greek spiritual art work has its own unique style. The artist sees their creation as a part of their worship, therefore take time to make something beautiful. Rich jewel tones are a common theme: gold, emerald, marron and of course the classic Greek blue.

Lepon…

I said there was two main types of Greek people…

Can you guess the other group?

Anarchists! Of course!

Christians and Anarchists, polar opposites right?

It may look like that on the surface, until you look deeper and it becomes apparent that both groups are very similar.

Anarchism is derived from the Greek root anarchos meaning “without authority. ” They reject hierarchy structures and call for abolition of the state.

So do they want complete chaos? No

Instead of goverment, they think that people should work together to create a society in any form they choose. The belief that we can take care of each other without a government, is to have faith in humanity.

What do you think would happen, if we didn’t have governments? Do you trust people or governments more with your wellbeing?

Questioning and rebelling against authority goes back to ancient Greece. Philosophers that dared to share their controversial thoughts were put in prison and executed for “corrupting the youth.”

You can find Socrates prison in Filoupapou Hill, where he was held and killed. His friends and followers planned on setting him free, but he denied their help, choosing to martyr himself.

Imagine his followers at these bars begging him to leave, he nonchalantly replies “We don’t know what the death is, it’s not reasonable to be afraid of it.”

Would you call him brave or stupid?

In modern Greek history, a fascist junta military dictatorship took power in April 1967. Those who stood against them were tortured and killed. Freedoms were restricted; elections abolished, demonstrations and strikes forbidden, only church gatherings were allowed.

This led to the growth of Anarchist and Anti fascist movements in Greece, led by mainly students.

On November of 1973, students and citizens came together holding a massive demonstration at the Polytechnic University. The dictatorship retaliated by crashing a tank through the gates of the University, brutally murdering 24 people and leaving many injured.

Emotionally looking through pictures and footage of the uprising. Reminding me of the countries that are currently under oppressive rule.

Courageous people, that know how dangerous protesting is, but because they have soo much love for each other and what is right, they put their lives on the line. Rest in peace.

The same anarchist chants echo through the streets today. “Our passion for freedom is stronger than any prison.”

No One is Illegal

My favourite anarchist value is that no one “owns” land. We are all citizens of the earth and we should be allowed to go wherever we please. Sadly the ruling class have divided the earth with imaginary borders. Imagine the first person to ever draw maps. How would they know what seperates one country from another?

Anarchists offer support towards refugees, providing food at solidarity kitchens. They also are invited into squats. There’s even a squat only for women and their children.

Can you find any similarities between Christians and Anarchists?

They’re both about humanity and solidarity.

Which explains why Greeks have hearts of gold. Many that I’ve lived with would often cook me food and check in on me. One Greek lady would always end our conversations with “if there’s anything you need just let me know.”

The white cross in the Greek flag represents the Orthodox religion. While the 9 white and blue stripes represents the amount of syllabus of the phrase Ελευθερία ή Θάνατος’ (Eleftheria I Thanatos) which means “Freedom or Death.” Perfect symbolism for the general Greek attitudes.

We all need a helping hand

Thank you for reading till the end!

What did you learn from this article? Are you Greek? Do you agree that Greeks have beautiful souls? I’d love to know your thoughts!

I still have soo much more to write about magical Greece!

Do you like science?

Doing an experiment and our science professor would smugly say

“When observing a chemical reaction, ask yourself… is this a fair test?”

“If you do the same, but in a different environment… Would it have a different reaction?”

“Once you know how it behaves, can you predict everything it will do?”

I’m not a scientist, I’m curious though. I want to know “truth”.

But it’s hard to find it among all this noise. Is truth subjective? Can there be many truths? Do you know the truth?

The people that are most connected to the earth are abundant in wisdom.

Yet where are the aboriginal scientists? Where are the women philosophers? Where are the black mathematicians?

Maybe because they’ve been soo oppressed they weren’t able to focus on such things.

Bullshit!

Our history is dark.

The ones in power don’t want us to know the truth.

Strong intuitive aboriginal women were the center of thriving communities all over the world.

Foundations built on love and nature.

Creating crazy technology, not to make money, just to help each other.

Sadly scared white men wanted power.

They burned the women leaders at the stake along with librarys and schools. Calling them “witches” . Shouting “this is the work of the devil.” Anyone who dared stand against them would be killed.

They took the ancient secrets for themselves.

Instilled fear in the people.

Spreading their religion, giving the people false hope.

Changing the history books to rewrite the story of what happened.

They made us forget who we are! But this can’t last forever.

As people go inwards and develop a listening to their intuition. The spirit of our ancestors drop truth bombs, when they know we are ready to receive them.

This has been predicted as the great awakening. We are remembering who we are.

Can anyone else feel the vibrations rising?

I can and it gives me soo much hope! I know that if I’m feeling this, then others are feeling it too, because we’re all connected!

I’m interested to know what your thoughts are on this! Do you think I’m crazy? Would you like me to write about more spiritual stuff?
