Musings: Shape

Basic Shapes by Gustavo Ferreira Gustavo of Pixabay

What shape are you? Are you square and not with it all? Are you round and kind of cool, going with the flow like a rock down a hill? Are you triangular and if so are you an equilateral being who is balanced or an obtuse one? I suppose you could be so many variations of triangles. Wait until we get into so many other shapes like rectangles, pentagons, octagons or even diamonds. 

I think it does not matter what shape you are like. We are all similar in that we are human beings but different and distinct in how we present ourselves to the world but does this really define us?

We can exist as individual sparks of divinity expressing ourselves in unique yet diverse ways. The question becomes then, how much are you defined by being different than others? Are you better for being the way that you are? Am I worse for me being me?

What does it really matter? Does the colour of my skin make me different and is this really an important distinction? What about my culture, my religion, my country, my sex, my gender, my orientation and so forth? After all, underneath it all, are we not the same?

I am not even talking about the blood and bones aspect of each us but on a soul level.

Don’t we all originate from the same source? Is there not an all encompassing “someone” or “something” that is greater than all of us here combined? Who or what makes us breathe? Is this simply a mechanical or biological feat of the body? Do we simply live and then die with no tomorrow or future?

Old Oak Tree by Mary Mikawoz

I contend that we are the observer or witness of our lives and that we are a higher spirit or soul. I contend that there is a force much greater than ourselves who manifests everything from the planets that are rotating around the sun to the seeds that grow in the Earth and then grow into a tomato plant, a beautiful flower or a solid oak tree.

I believe in a force greater than ourselves that is, perhaps, unnamable and far beyond our wildest comprehension but not of our appreciation and gratitude.

It does not matter what your shape is and how you present yourself to the world as long as you do so with a good heart and intention. It does not matter that we all follow the same religion to believe in a power greater than ourselves but that we recognize we did not get here all on our own accord. It was not our work but a higher force or divinity.

I challenge you today not to see the distinctions and differences in people as an oddity but a beautiful creation of God, the Universe or Source whereby we are each individually made just like there is no two snowflakes made exactly alike. Let us be appreciative of our connection to the all-divine and know we are perfectly made just as we are.

Akashic Records

Akashic Records

Book: “Discover Your Soul’s Path Through the Akashic’s Records: Taking Your Life from Ordinary to Extraordinary” by Linda Howe

Book Review by Mary Mikawoz

I find it difficult to review this book for a number of reasons. I found myself highlighting a lot of sections based on what I considered good insight by the author, Linda Howe. However, I found the

specific concepts on the Akashic Records systems very new to me and so difficult to appreciate. For example there are five pillars of light consisting of Incarnation, Authority, Discipline, Responsibility and Commitment. Without a graphic, I found it hard to visualize where this in my body and how long they are and exactly where they are positioned. There was a written description, and I understand the concepts but the actual simulation of light around the body in a star formation is difficult for me to conceptualize without a drawing of the body. I would have preferred if the book came with a diagram or sketch.

Further to that, there is the triangle of heart, mind and will. It is located somewhere in the body. The closest I got to its location is that the heart is found in the heart chakra and the mind is found in the top head chakra. The will is then found at the throat chakra. All of this makes sense, but in my mind, I do not see how it creates a triangle that is supposed to be equilateral and balanced. Again, a diagram would have been nice to visualize the concept better.

I understand that the central pillar of light is grace composed of compassion and related components. I understand visually that it is the central pillar of light running through our bodies. I understand it is divine and comes from the source. I can see this one.

I understand that the following is a pattern that we should be using to deal with our problems in our lives: acknowledge, appreciate, acceptance and appropriate action. This makes sense as the stepping stones to dealing with present day problems based on the Akashic Records.

I understand that the Akashic Records is a system that keeps record of every thought, action or energy we have displayed in previous lifetimes, in the current manifestation or in future lifetimes. I understand that there is an energy grid. I don’t understand how someone like Edgar Cayce (The Sleeping Prophet) could only access the Akashic Records while under a deep state of relaxation and that we can somehow access it ourselves without transcending into a deep altered state of mind as well.

I found the questions helpful especially for the group questions. I would recommend that as you read this book, you highlight the Opening Prayer and Closing Prayer. I was using an e-book so it was difficult to go back and forth. (Plus, the Adobe Digital Edition software was not co-operating and would keep messing up which in and of itself was frustrating.) I would recommend typing the opening and closing prayers onto a paper or into a word document. If you have a physical hard copy of the book, you can highlight or dog-ear the page and reference it as needed.

I also found the Appendix helpful. There is a better explanation of what state you should be in for the opening prayer in it on pages 165 to 167. I think it would have been helpful to have read Ms. Howe’s earlier books to get a better idea of the Akashic Records. I think she would have covered some more detail that may have been overlooked or assumed to have been known in this book. Overall, I am a visual person and I would have liked the five pillars of light or consciousness graphed out along with the triangle. Without these concepts down, I feel lost in reading and following the book.

The final recommendation I will make regarding this book is that you should audio record the reflections onto your computer or digital device and then play it back to yourself while you are in the process of doing a reflection. This will give you more time to think of being in a higher spiritual realm of thinking and give you time to make the connections with the Masters, Teachers, Loved Ones and the Lords of the Akashic Records.

Despite my difficulties with the book and some of my personal frustrations, I would still recommend the book to those who are interested in their spiritual development.
