Those younger siblings

Being away from home, being away from my pets, my little brothers, dogs, cats, horses and even chickens (even when they are not very affectionate, for now at least)...I miss them. And because the fact of living with them every day (when I was home), communicate with animals, you don't feel judged, and you don't judge them either, (because you would have to be a little crazy to judge a little one), you feel supported all the time, they're always therefor you no matter what, you feel the affection without having to ask for it, at any time, even if you do not devote much time to them and do not give them much love (of course this is not ideal at all), they are always there...they see it as their duty. 

To give affection to his owner, to humans in general even if they don't know them, whether badly treated...which is sad to see, how some people treat animals...others don't even try, they completely ignore them. I think that in the last case, it is better to acknowledge that one does not have time or simply do not want to be responsible for an animal, because until today there are still many people that knowing they can not be responsible they have animals in the worst conditions, hungry, without a shelter, without a blanket or bed, and often physically and psychologically abused for no reason at all (there should never be a reason to hit a pet, we are supposed to be smarter than that).

A few days ago, I watched the movie "Hachiko" and I was very nostalgic, started remembering my little ones, Hachiko didn't know his owner/friend had died, so he waited for him to come back, for 9 years...until he died. As I said, the first duty of a pet (apparently) is to accompany his human friend... will they understand that they are not always the priority for us, and that people often (not always) come before them in our lives? And if they do not understand this, why do they always remain as faithful and stay with us regardless of the circumstances? Why is it that we can not be like them? not judge, just love others, without race, sex or ideology discrimination, if we are all the same deep inside, while we are unique individuals ...

We have so much to learn from the animals, and they have so little to learn from us... how weird is that "human is the most evolved animal"...often the advantage is not very noticeable...I wish them to receive a lot of affection, if not always, at least once in their lives, although they deserve it always, but them, with a little affection, even distant, just that it's enough for them to wag their tails, and make our day, make our life happier... please love them, like your younger siblings, or your children (for those who do not have them) ...

What are Indigo Souls?

", the Arian Age (the age that came before Pisces, approximately 2160 BC-0) was characterized by the sign Aries and the planet Mars. Aries carries the energies of assertion, initiation, expansion, will, and war. It is associated with and stimulates some of the qualities of the first or base chakra-aggression-and some of the qualities of the third or solar plexus chakra-domination, power, and conquest. (The word chakra comes from Sanskrit and is used to refer to one of the seven energy centers within the human energy system). The Arian Age was an age of empire, war, and expansion. It was dominated by Mars, the god of war, and the symbol for male virility. The development of the Roman Kingdom (753 BC) exemplifies the energies of this period.

We are most familiar with the Piscean energies of the last 2000 years, as our current civilization and psyche are still so highly influenced by them. The birth of Christianity is the "event" that ushered in the Piscean Age and has colored this past 2000 years. The symbol of the sign Pisces is the fish. The two tails of the fish were the early symbol of Christianity. And the Christ, suffering for humanity on the cross, is a powerful symbol of the Piscean themes of sacrifice, suffering, redemption and transcendence.

Pisces is a water sign. Water is the element of feelings and emotions. Pisces is connected to religion and spirituality (operating  through the seventh or crown chakra), the basic emotions connected to family and to our inner child (the second or sacral chakra), and the heart, connected with love and compassion (the fourth or heart chakra). The result of the Piscean influence has been to turn the focus of humanity toward love, spirituality, and the "other world" in an emotional and innocent, or childlike, way.

The emotional nature of Pisces has created an emotional/devotional approach to spirit. It has emphasized feeling-based communion and the attitudes of belief and faith, rather than understanding. It is a sign of service and sacrifice, and of compassion and forgiveness, keynotes of the Christian era. But Pisces is also a sign of self-denial and personal condemnation, in which suffering is seen as a way to cleanse our soul, and our personal joy in this life should be sacrificed for eternal happiness in the afterworld..."

The Energies of Aquarius

"At this moment we are in the meeting point of Pisces and Aquarius. The energies of Aquarius are starting to penetrate the Earth, though the Piscean energies are still the dominant "note". This is for two reasons; first, we still exist in the Piscean structure of civilization, which has been built over the last 2000 years, and second, the Piscean energies, though waning, are still flowing on to the Earth.

At the same time, we have a steadily increasing inflow of energies from Aquarius, bringing new paradigms, ways of thought, feelings, and behaviors. Aquarius is bringing freedom, progressiveness, individuality, intellectual understanding, and group consciousness. 

Aquarius is an air sign. Air is the element of the mind. Aquarius works primarily through the third eye (the sixth chakra) at the center of the forehead. This chakra has to do with two levels of our intelligence; the analytic mind and the intuition. 

The stimulation of the third eye and the mind creates a fundamentally different psychology in the Aquarian person, a psychology based upon an increased activity of the mind. We have a new level of intellectual activity, and one of its most potent manifestations is our desire to understand. Our minds are questing. We want to know (this completely describes me). We approach life not only with feeling but also with the mind. We don't believe because someone tell us to (also me); we want information, facts, reasons, and proof (so me). And we want the freedom to make our own decisions.

The third eye has two aspects, referred to as "petals". The lower petal holds the analytical mind, with its faculty of intelligent thought and reasoning. The upper petal holds what is commonly called the intuition. We use the word intuition in a particular way; it refers to another sense apparatus that gives us the ability to tune to a subtle world of energy, thought, and feeling.

This type of intuition it's connected to a higher mental capacity that has to do with Beingness ans the Soul. It's from here that insight comes, often as an unexpected flash of clarity or illumination, and from here that genius draws its inspiration.

Another facet of this intuitive capacity is the ability to self-reflect (I don't really get this one). It is through the upper petal of the third eye that we can examine our own thought and feelings. It's the ability to look deeper into our feelings. to sense the subtle nuances, and to understand our deeper psychological motivations. We can trace what appears to be a momentary feeling back in time to our past, to our childhood upbringing, perhaps even further. We can see how this feeling or pattern may have been passed down to us from our grandparents or our great-grandparents, or perhaps even from previous incarnations. This ability is a new type of thinking that has only recently emerged on a widespread level.

Another aspect of the upper petal is the need to find higher meaning and significance. We live for values and purpose. It is the inflowing energies of Aquarius and their stimulation of the upper petal of the third eye that is one of the primary forces creating what is commonly called the New Age movement.

The Indigo Soul Group

Each astrological age brings in not only the energies of that sign, but also brings in a specific group of souls. The Aquarian soul group first began to incarnate in the 1700s. They incarnated into a Piscean culture and civilization, carrying new ideas and energies that were very different than what was then the norm. In a sense these individuals seeded the Piscean culture with Aquarian energies. They had the toughest job of "breaking the ice" and bringing in the first of new energies. They have ushered in the Industrial Revolution, electricity, scientific thought, and the new ideals of liberty and freedom.

We exist in the cusp period between  two ages. On the one hand we have the Piscean Age, which has externalized and crystallized an entire civilization with its intuitions, religions, organizations, cultures, and ways of being. And on the other hand, we have the incoming Aquarian energies and the corresponding soul group, what we are calling Indigo, coming into incarnation in greater and greater numbers and gradually unfolding what will in time become the next culture and civilization.  

It was only recently (the past 10 years or so, this book was published 2009) that the Indigo phenomena gained public attention. It began because schools and parents were noticing a growing number of children who were "different". These kids were highly individual, rebellious, and very intelligent, and didn't fit the established school system. They had unusually fast minds that moved at a different pace than that of "normal" (in the future I'll post about "what's consider normal in today's society") kids (the attention deficit disorder syndrome). They had a different spirit, way of relating, and sense of who they were.

In our seminars (of the authors of this book) we realized that there were already a very large number of Indigo Souls in incarnation who were already adults. Most had grown up invisibly-meaning nobody had noticed they were different. Most of these adults (and most Indigo Children too) were bright, but didn't have the exceptional psychic gifts that are commonly associated with Indigos. And because they didn't stand out as exceptionally gifted individuals, they tended to go unnoticed.

Many of this adults knew they were different, but they didn't know why, what it meant, how to handle it, or what they were supposed to do with it. Many of them had suffered a great deal because of this; they felt different, separate, alone, and misunderstood. Many of them felt there was something wrong with them because they didn't fit, with the resultant feelings of inferiority, self-judgement, and so forth.

Indigo Adults have incarnated into the denser vibrations of the Piscean Age and have been breaking the ground and planting the first seeds of the Aquarian civilization. They have incarnated into an environment that does not support them and, in many ways, actively tries to shut them down. They have grown up in families and been educated by school systems that have conditioned them with the Piscean ways and not supported the Aquarian/Indigo spirit hidden within them. The result is that many of them have become-in their outer personality and ways of thinking, feeling, and behaving-primarily Piscean, with only a small level of the Indigo energies showing. Yet they carry a deeper Indigo spirit underneath.

Some of the Indigo Children today, many of whom have been born to Indigo Parents, are more integrated, being Indigo Souls with Indigo personality structures. They can express more of their Aquarian nature. And these children are still only an early step. As the outer society becomes more Aquarian it will allow more of the Indigo nature to express. We have only just begun to see the qualities of these new souls.

Some other day another extract...(I'll try to contact the authors so I don't get into trouble for using their book on my blog).  

Definition of Indigo Souls

"A new type of person is coming into incarnation right now, almost a "next step" as humanity progresses. These people hold great hope for the future-the promise of a new humanity and civilization. They carry different energies, paradigms, and ways of thinking and feeling. These new people are called "Indigo Souls" because clairvoyants notice that the color indigo is unusually prominent in their aura. Indigo is the color of the third eye; these souls have a high degree of activity in their third eye center. During the years we have come across thousands of Indigo Souls. Most of them are already adults, but very few know they are Indigo or understand their soul nature. Many are struggling because they are different. They have a depth of feeling and thinking that differs from those around them. They have powerful internal forces of energy, intelligence, and feelings that they often don't understand, and consequently find difficult to manage. They are unusually sensitive, making them more easily disturbed by things that don't bother others. They carry aspirations and visions that make them long for something more, and be dissatisfied with the world as it is. They often feel limited and  frustrated  by what is considered the "normal world".

If this description speaks to you, then you are probably an  Indigo Soul.

Una Niña Llamada Ernestina (Enriqueta Flores)

...Nunca te acuestes sin haber mirado el cielo; aunque este nublado, tú sabes que allá arriba lucen los luceros más bellos, las estrellas más hermosas, los astros más esplendorosos; y todo ello fue creado por Dios para tí, hace millones de millones de años, y luz de ellos te llega desde el lejano pasado por un milagro de sabiduría. Nunca te olvides de mirar la tierra cuando te levantes casa mañana, porque siempre encontrarás que Dios ha hecho crecer para tí alguna yerba buena, alguna flor...

...Actúa siempre bien, no causes daño a la naturaleza, y donde vayas, siembra alegría, armonía y bondad. si cada ser humano actuara así, este bello planeta sería el paraíso que al principio de los tiempos fue...

...Una estrella con su hermosa luz visible, es el medio más bello que podemos encontrar, para mirarnos sin vernos, para tomarnos las manos en la distancia infinita...

...Si Dios dispone que jamás nos veamos de nuevo, tengo la seguridad de que en el cielo estará nuestra estrella uniéndonos en el pensamiento, acercándonos cada noche, aunque estemos separados por océanos y continentes. Y si pasan siglos, la estrella permaneceráen lo alto...eterna , como nuestra amistad...

...Lo que guardamos en el corazón y en la mente con amor, jamás envejece, y muere con nosotros...


Tranquilidad rodeando mi espacio
Silencio absoluto en mi alma
relajados mis huesos
aún te siento lejos

El silencio se desvance
la tranquilidad se destruye
presionados mis huesos
aún te siento lejos

Aburrimiento en el aire
se sienten voces de silencio
que luego callan con el viento
aún te siento lejos

Un ambiente de soledad en esa playa abandonada, llenan los vacíos de mi alma gastada

Recién puedo entender la distancia a la que estás
un lugar al que yo aún no voy a llegar

Estuviste muy cerca, mucho tiempo para él
Decidió llevarte lejos, para siempre lejos...


...Lágrimas rozan tus mejillas cálidas
evaporando el calor que las cubre pálidas

Brisa levanta tu cabello sensible
dejando caer las semillas sobre el suelo

Tu aroma fertiliza las semillas
que traerán a este lugar bellas cosas sencillas

Mi mente esta en las nubes, mi vida está dando vueltas
mis pies dejan la tierra, estrellas y atardeceres

Las voces en mi mente me dicen que corra por tí
Cada latido de mi corazón me pide que lo reúna con el tuyo

Solo se que no debo hacerlo, y por esa razón me quedaré así, sin ti, ni nada que me haga recordar ese tiempo en que la luna se unía con el sol...

The Little Prince Quotes

...You--you alone--will have the stars as no one else has them. In one of the stars I shall be living. In one of them I shall be laughing ... you, only you will have the star that can laugh! And when your sorrow is comforted you will be content that you have known me...

...If some one loves a flower, of which just one single blossom grows in all the millions and millions of stars, it is enough to make him happy just to look at the stars. He can say to himself: 'Somewhere, my flower is there...' But if the sheep eats the flower, in one moment all his stars will be darkened...And you think that is not important!...

...It is such a secret place, the land of tears...

...It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; What is essential is invisible to the eye...

...What makes the desert beautiful is that somewhere it hides a well...

Vida De Sueños

Algunos quieren ser pellizcados para despertar de una pesadilla, para darse cuenta de que no es real. Otros quieren solo quedarse dormidos, para escapar de la realidad, y empezar a vivir en los sueños, aunque sea en una pesadilla, al menos existe la certeza de que no es real.

Unos prefieren vivir en un sueño, otros prefieren soñar una vida. Soñar despiertos y soñar dormidos, ambas con sus ventajas. 

Al soñar dormido puedes hacer lo que quieras, cosas imposibles, inalcanzables, que crees en la vida real quizás no tienes o no puedes lograr, pero finalmente siempre sabes que fue solo un sueño. Al soñar despierto, es una esperanza que se alimentará constantemente, muchas veces esperas una vida a que se cumpla lo deseado, y por ahí pasan muchos bajones, depresiones, pérdida de autoestima, falta de confianza en sí mismo, etc.

Vivir el día a día, el momento, Carpe Diem, es otra opción, en que te preocupas del ahora sin pensar en el futuro. No te organizas, no planificas, pero tampoco proyectas ni sueñas. Lo que sientes lo haces, sigues impulsos. Vivir preocupado del futuro, piensas en cuando te vas a casar, cuando tendrás familia, cuando serás exitoso, si en algún momento serás felíz, y con eso dejas de lado el goze de lo actual, te pierdes lo simple y sencillo de la vida, el maravillarse con una sonrisa de alguien que te rodea, con una actitud inocente, todo eso se pierde al vivir preocupado del futuro...

¿Acaso se puede pensar algo ridículo de forma racional?....saber que lo que piensas es descabellado, pero estar conciente de ello?...Cosas por las que tus padres te mandarían al psiquiatra, a veces por pensar muy distinto al resto, al común de la gente "normal", pero, ¿por qué el resto tiene que tener la razón solamente por ser mayoría?....recuerden que grandes descubrimientos e inventos en la historia del mundo se han hecho por personas a quienes la mayoría, la "gente normal" consideró locos por mucho tiempo...muchos no vivieron para ver la aceptación del resto.

Una vida esperando la aceptación de algunos que nunca te van a reconocer un logro,...¿para qué esforzarse?...demostrarle algo al resto, ¿para qué?...el decir "yo no tengo que demostrarle nada a nadie" o "no me importa lo que piense el resto", no es ser egoísta ni egocéntrico, es quererse a sí mismo ... quiérete a tí mismo, después reparte cariño al resto...tómate tu tiempo, el que sea necesario, si el resto no entiende tu actitud, bueno, mala suerte, vive para tí con el resto, no para el resto...

Existe esa gran pared, montaña, barrera, un obstáculo, que todos tenemos en la vida, en algún momento...hay quienes temen que llegue el día en que tengan que enfrentarse a eso, hay otros que lo único que quieren es enfrentarlo, lo antes posible...siempre hay que tratar, aunque se falle, una y otra vez...rendirse también es válido, pero siempre vas a tener esa barrera en tu vida, esa tranca, y tendrás que aceptarlo y vivir con eso...Pero también puedes superarlo, derribar ese muro, y pasar al siguiente obstáculo (porque de seguro va a haber otro)...lo importante es saber siempre de que forma enfrentarlo, y no escaparse ni buscar un desvío...
