Monday Mingle #33
Hello my Minglers :),
Happy Monday! Welcome to the 33rd Edition of Monday Mingle, a question answer game we play every Monday to get to know each other better. Each week I ask 5 questions and we all get to answer them and mingle around.
This Week’s Quote:
“Someone I loved gave me a box full of darkness. It took me years to understand that this, too, was a gift ”
~ Mary Olivier
When I saw this quote today, it was very incredible, you can call this a synchronicity, I’ve been having so many of them lately. I realized that exact same thing not so long ago, I was sitting in my bedroom and words popped into my head that resembled this quote, I felt extremely grateful for the things I’ve experienced in the past. Even though when I lived out those things I couldn’t see the lessons in them at that moment, back then I was so mad at everything that was happening to me, I felt very resentful which made me blind.
Several years ago I had some of the darker times in my life, I was very lost and I didn’t want to be part of this physical experience anymore, and what helped me to get up and make a choice to live and change my life, was the strength that my previous pains in my childhood had given me. I feel truly blessed and so happy to have all those experiences, they go hand in hand to bring me to a beautiful place I’m in now.
Then I remembered that several days ago I had this dream, it was quite a dark dream, I didn’t understand right away what it meant, but I knew It had some kind of connection to my past, and after reading this quote, and connecting the dots to my own thoughts that have been visiting me lately, this dream makes so much sense that I feel like I’ve been enlightened all over again.
This week’s questions:
How was your Valentine’s Week or Day?
Where was your first kiss?
When you get angry how do you express it?
What book are you currently reading?
What do you think about our soul having past lives?
Q – How was your Valentine’s Week or Day?
Me and Miguel went to lunch, but he has to work so we don’t usually celebrate Valentine’s day. We believe that love should be celebrated daily and not have a specific day with presents or flowers. I personally believe that Valentine’s day is a cliche and another excuse for media to brainwash everyone to go spend money on things that they probably don’t need.
Q – Where was your first kiss?
I think my first kiss was when I was in kindergarden :).
Q – When you get angry how do you express it?
The way I express my self when I get angry has definitely changed over the years, I’ve taught my self to get a much better grip on my self than before ( not all the time of course, I am temporarily a human after all and sometimes when I get mad I can look like that animal in the picture LOL ). But most of the time when I’m angry I just let my self step away from the feeling of a specific situation, cool down and think things through. I think it’s best not get caught up in the anger emotion it self, and not give it expression at all.
Q – What book are you currently reading?
I just ordered a book by this amazing girl who also has a channel on youtube ( and that’s the on I will be reading once I get it ). When I first saw her videos I was shocked by how much of everything she teaches I not only resonate with, but I feel like we are the same person. I love and resonate with a lot of spiritual teachers, but I don’t always agree with everything they teach, but this is the first time I’ve seen a person who I agree with and resonate with 100% percent.
Her name is Teal Scott and her YouTube channel is The Spiritual Catalyst, I purchased her book so I can support her, it’s called ” The Sculptor In The Sky “.
It’s so interesting when I started watching her videos, I would listen and I would be like: OMG that’s what I’ve always tried to explain to others and that’s exactly what I’ve always believed.
The very interesting thing about mine and her beliefs is, that they didn’t come from reading books, they came from the inner higher self. If you ask me about my spiritual knowledge and how I know all of these things, the only thing I can tell is I was born with it, I’ve always known this, but I was awakened to an even deeper understanding of it over the years. I’ve had some really interesting spiritual and you can say paranormal experiences in my life that the existence of what’s lays beyond this physical plane we call ” Reality ” in undeniable.
- Q – What do you think about our soul having past lives? ( I want to give a shout out to Dheana. R for coming up with this question )
I think it’s no longer a secret that all of us have lived past lives, some of us were even born here remembering who they were before, because it serves a purpose for that specific individual in his/her life. But for the people who are not born here remembering their past lives it also has it’s purpose. I think too many people try to get in touch or figure out their past life experiences because they think it can help them in this life. But the way I think of it is this:
Think of each life as a different movie, a different experience, some movies are comedies, some are thrillers, some are horrors and some are documentaries etc. You choose to go watch a specific movie because you believe that you want to experience it for a specific purpose you have at the time, some movies you go watch because you want to laugh, some because you want to learn something, some because it’s gonna make you feel good etc. But, each time you go see each movie, you don’t sit in the movie theater thinking about the previous movie you watched or the experience you’ve had watching the previous movie. You concentrate on the movie you are watching at the moment, right? Well, it’s the same thing with our soul picking our life experiences. Our soul is part of the Creator, and the only thing our soul is after is expansion and perspective. It picks the movie aka life which it needs at the moment, so the previous movie aka life was only useful when it was watched aka lived then, but not it’s time to focus on what’s in front of you, so the only way we can fulfill our purpose of learning, is to focus on what’s present.
