Taming the Ego – Awakening the Soul

Please join us on our website www.bethemedicine.com

“With every thought come back to Love. Love is the strength we all rely upon to see us through everything. Love is the truth that frees us from what we cannot understand or see.” Janet StraightArrow

The ego has had the job to protect us since we were a child. It hides trauma and gives us a false security to get us through tough times. The ego wounds and reactions we have now come from a long set of patterns that began as children to be okay in a not okay world.

The soul is always whole, wise, loving and kind. It knows everything about us and is divine consciousness and our true self. The soul loves us unconditionally and is the one we look for in other people outside of us when it is inside of us all the while. The soul is our best lover, parent, and friend as it always has our best interests at heart.

Anxiety and fear are the ego wounds developed by holding back the wounds of the child and beyond. Thoughts, behaviors, and beliefs that harm others and us, are the result of this. These ego structures are acting out and pulling us away, as the soul calls us home to our truth, peace, and love.

Controlling self and others are desperate ways to control our reality in the way we want it to be. As we let go of these ways we find there is an inner guide that will guide us and support us in the best way for us in everything.

We are not innately bad, jealous, fearful, angry, hurtful or hurting beings. Our nature is truth and love. Truth is love. Discerning the above qualities as ego wounds instead of a part of us is an important way to begin. If we think we are those negative qualities, we will hold on to them rather than move into our true nature of love.

We are always health, happiness, truth, beauty, light, peace and love-soul. All else are energy and beliefs and qualities we took on to survive and now can learn to dismiss-ego. True healing occurs and we do not have to struggle or strain. Remembering and acting as our true selves brings us into balance again.

Life works in balance and harmony. Letting go of what is not us and releasing the belief that we are subject to these emotions, thoughts, and qualities take personal effort and a change in consciousness.

There are many methods to accomplishing this. We begin by opening to the wise one who communicates with our mind and body every day and letting go of that which interferes and holds us back from our true self.

Begin by realizing you are innately good and wise, and when you feel different from that, release, let go, and find your way home to happiness, health, peace, and love.

Enjoy the Journey,

Janet StraightArrow

Lighten Up the Dark Night of the Soul

 “We are not lost or stuck, we are in the perfect cycle of our own awakening.” Janet StraightArrow

No place to escape. The dark night of the soul is here. We feel stranded in a void space wondering where we are. Lost and alone we are far from the goal of all one. There is no firm ground beneath our feet and we are scared. We may feel fear, pain, sadness, and despair.

The dark night of the soul is very uncomfortable because we are going through major transformation and change. It is nothing that can be ignored. We are being transformed, like it or not. Life is not what we thought it was, and we do not know where we are.

PERFECT TIMING – BEING WHOLE

 As humans, we are constantly undergoing the normal cycles of life which are in constant motion. New cells born to us in every moment is our biological indication of continual human transformation.

The dark night is one of a transformation of inner consciousness, growing awareness, and how we identify us as humans. We are a species that awakens more to the reality and illusions of us each moment. The dark night of the soul occurs when we are moving into a whole new phase of our life. We are going through major awakening and a huge shift point and feel out of control.

DARK NIGHT OF THE EGO

The struggle is with the ego that tries to be in charge and keep things under wraps. The soul is always in the driver’s seat and the ego struggles with the truth of that. During the dark night, the soul is moving us through some deep material to bring us into greater light. It is the ego of us that struggles with the leading of the soul. It is the ego that is lost and losing control during the dark night of the soul.

It’s a good thing, as the ego has been overstepping its role for too long. The soul is in charge and the ego must surrender and let go. When the ego learns to work with the soul we feel comfortable, confident and whole. There is more to be aware of on every level of who we are which is revealed as we learn to awaken to our true soul and self.

The ego wants to keep us wrapped in a box with a bow of its own design. Safe and secure no more, it’s time to break through the old packaging to rebirth ourselves into who we really are.

We are limitless potential, with a specific purpose and life plan, in the dark night, the soul is challenging our ego attachments and beliefs by pushing old boundaries to break out and be who we are.

The dark night of the soul is nothing more than letting go of the limitation and fear of the ego to realize that we are so much more. As we move through these times of awakening consciousness and transformation we may feel out of control and it is very good. We can not hold on to the old, it must fall away to allow rebirth and renewal. When the soul is moving us through this uncomfortable territory to learn and grow through, we surrender to experience more than we currently know, instead of trying to control it or fight it.

We can not hold on to the old, it must fall away to allow rebirth and renewal. When the soul is moving us through this uncomfortable territory to learn and grow through, we are best to surrender to the experience instead of trying to control it or fight it. Like a being that is being birthed the only way is through.

IN-BETWEEN SOUL AND EGO

During the dark night of the soul, we are often in an in-between place, neither here nor there, and that is the most uncomfortable place of all. The ego fights for something familiar, and the soul guides us to a new place of freedom.

Being in this in-between place of transition is where we experience the dark night. The cycle of life is dark into light, day into night and into day again. We are not lost or stuck we are in the perfect cycle of our own awakening.

Once we have made it through the dark night a few times, we remember there is always a light to guide us and new life that unfolds as we walk. It is a very emotional time and we can get lost in this easily and forget. Our internal dialogue is so tied up in fear, that it is difficult to hear anything else.

Quieting the mind and dismissing negative thinking allows a greater wisdom and truth to be revealed. Our soul speaks to us when we make room to listen. It is subtle and real, it makes sense and is clear. For us to receive we quiet the emotions and thoughts so we can be open to know and hear.

KEEP WALKING – NO FEAR

The key is to keep walking and surrender to what is here, instead of clogging up our mind, and heart in fear.

There is so much juicy material to be privy to when we let go of trying to make things the way we think we want our life to go. As much as intention and specific desires are helpful, during the dark night of the soul it is better to let it all go and see where your soul is leading you to go. There is a higher calling that will not be ignored to become more fully who you are.

Quieting the mind and opening your heart to higher wisdom, peace, love, and truth is a huge growth in itself. As we learn that we are more in control when we let go of our lower nature, we find our higher intelligence leads us in the best way aligned with our true self and soul.

GOOD NEWS – TURN THE LIGHT ON

The soul always knows who we are and why we are here. So when the dark night of the soul darkens your door, know a great light is about to break through. Focus on the light and allow the illusion of the dark disappear.

As we transit through letting go of fear and control and stop trying to keep things status quo, we find new life, peace, and joy awakening us to so much more.

Enjoy the Journey,

Blessings of Delight,

Janet StraightArrow

Living on Purpose

As challenging as all of the changes occurring on the planet are, it is good to see people waking up to greater love, compassion, and purpose each day. We all have our own unique parts in the play of life. When we live our true self we are fulfilled even in the darkest nights.

Lifelong purpose, short term purpose, and soul purpose awakens in us with passion, in everyday life situations, and a feeling of wisdom and accomplishment unfolds. We are all souls on a journey in this body and time. Follow your inner calling and be courageous to explore the possibilities. As we go inside and claim our authenticity and act we find comfort and support for a new life that works.

People ask me what should they be doing? I suggest slowing down to listen and feel the truth that comes to you each day. Follow what calls to you to be and do. Our inner wisdom is peaceful and clear and not controlling or dissuaded from what it knows.

In some of the situations unfolding in the country and world, we each have our own part to play. Some people march, some make calls and write letters, some people pray. I support individuals as I write and teach and heal. There are many things for us to be and do to progress and help our community, world, family, and self.

Instead of following the crowd, or worrying what others think, its time to really know, what we think. This is where you will find direction, answers and new questions to move with. Our part is organic when we stop resisting the truth. When we quiet the mind that reflects rules of others, we open to the true mind of us.

It is a practice to honor and know what is you alone, and not the voices of beliefs, fears, and desires of others. There are no should’s even with you, just what feels correct, and you know it’s true for you.

Living Our Whole Soul

Direct Perception. The feeling sense is an important one to know our truth. Learn to tune it in, and raise the volume so you can hear it. It is a process of learning through experience and trusting what we feel and know is true.

No seeking outside approval as this takes us away from our inner wisdom. Looking to others does not work when we are in the midst of challenging changes. Being you in the oneness is doing your part.

Rejecting of what we have falsely tolerated is important. Everyone does not need to agree. It takes a village and we all play different roles in the whole. Someone who plays a different role in their life will want you to play that role too.

Learn to follow your soul-heart-wisdom and become whole and peaceful in the chaos of life. That is the journey here to Be The Medicine, living your true self and enjoying the journey of the divine-human walking the walk, authentically.

Freedom, health, happiness, beauty, and light embrace us in unconditional love. That is living in the world and not of it on purpose.

Happy Summer, Janet StraightArrow 973-647-2500 Email for appointments

Our website and healing center was always Oasis For The Soul. The work is Be The Medicine. It was confusing to people so I eliminated using Oasis for the Soul. I am being guided to integrate both again as we do offer an Oasis for the Soul as we experience and learn how to Be The Medicine.

 VISION QUEST MITOTE SCHEDULE OF WEEKEND and more details.

We arrive on Friday afternoon-evening, settle in and share dinner and open the circle. We begin the formal ceremony on Saturday morning. We participate in an unfolding process that leads us through the weekend. We locate our outside sacred space in nature and prepare for the evening Mitote ceremony and inward Journey on Sunday.

The Mitote ceremony on Saturday night raises our vibration, purifies us, and releases the illusions of our past, as we take turns holding the light and chanting the Gayatri Mantra, we move into lucid dreaming while others chant.

We awaken early Sunday and immediately walk out onto the land and enjoy our Quest. As we sit quietly in nature we open to the signs and symbols that nature presents, and reflect and find the truth inside of us. Nature nurtures us and is a mirror for us to see us clearly. Messages unfold and we come back with more wholeness.

We are re-birthed over the rainbow bridge as we re-enter. We share food and stories and process our adventure and relax and come all the way back. We close the weekend and are ready to go home. It is suggested that you allow space and time before you go back to your everyday life if you can.

REIKI 1 ENERGY MEDICINE TRAINING THIS SUMMER – SELECTING DATES NOW

I Am Not That

We are not sinners or bad, our true nature is loving and good. We have taken on these concepts and beliefs and they conflict with the truth of us. Disease happens in body and mind when we live against our true nature.

Our upbringing was full of illusions, conflicts, and lies. It takes great strength and courage to say no, and live a better life. Unconditional love begins and ends with us. It is not for others to give it to us. We set the stage and the standard. We have been taught against these truths more than not. We are here to remember and live who we are.

To love ourselves is to honor all of life and see all as one. No one is better or worse, equality is our natural liberty. All fingers point to us and the good news is we can change and heal us and become the true nature of who we are.

This was something I knew fifty years ago when given a dire diagnosis. I rebelled and said, no. I have done that many times, unafraid to break the rules that hurt. Breaking illusions and limitations can be an adventure and not so hard unless you want everyone to agree.

This past year more than ever we have witnessed people seeing life from diverse points that we do not see. It’s for us to stand in our truth, heart, and soul, and find the truth that does not change. Again, no one needs to agree.

We can be cheerleaders and truth seekers and enjoy prosperity. Or, we can tear everyone down and act a clown and find there is no peace, love, and joy. Our reality can be wherever we put our attention. This does not make it correct, just our decision and opinion.

Peace beyond understanding comes from releasing everything of the worldly rules and awakening Universal truth and laws. The world is a mess because free will has led many into an abyss of lies, suffering, and unhappiness.

Trying to control in the ways of man lead us to all of the nasty stories in the scriptures. Living love, equality, honoring nature, and all, brings us prosperity, healing and beauty filled living. The highest truth of all.

I am not anger, fear, jealousy, control, judgment, guilt and blame. There is no shame in being you or me. Learning to be free in ways that support all and us is the imperative.

When we stop believing or listening to the destructive thoughts in our head, we can open up to who we are as love and joy and peace and much more. We are limitless possibilities when we discover living natural laws.

The world will thrive when we thrive. No one needs to be up or down unless they choose to be. Free will means we make choices for our life with each breath. Stop and see what you are choosing, and if you desire, choose again, and say I am not that. I am me and free in blissful harmony.

Know who you are and live more of that to be healthy, happy and free.

Be The Medicine one person at a time.

Blessings of Delight,

Janet StraightArrow

The Truth that Sets Us Free

 DISCERNING THE TRUTH FROM THE LIES

“The truth is with us all the time, the problem is, we have been taught to believe, and focus on the lies.” Janet StraightArrow

Confusion reigns when we try to mix the truth and the lie as one. Each human knows the truth, it is a wisdom we have innately. It’s the still small voice that most ignore and laugh about later. It’s nothing to laugh about since it can save, and makes your life.

Peace, joy, and love come naturally as we live our true self. No matter what happens, we “know” the truth, and can unfold all problems with solutions, naturally. It’s the confusing voice in the head that rattles off beliefs, fears and judgments, filled with reasons, excuses and blame, that sidetracks us and keeps us stuck.

We are all enlightened beings, caught in an illusion of pain and fear, that can be easily released when we have zero tolerance for lies and live the truth.

Ongoing inner dialogue with illusions of rules and roles and people pleasing silliness keep us victims of our own consciousness. We volunteer to be deceived until we realize we are the ones keeping us in prison.

No one has more power over us than us. Our mind keeps us trapped, or free. Usually a combination of both, which creates great stress, instead of health and happiness.

 DISCOVERING TRUTH

We begin by feeling the truth. Truth vibrates peacefully in our body. Anxiety, fear, and dis-ease mean there are lies somewhere, awaiting us, to lift their veils of disguise. No matter what our head says, our body knows the truth.

Our higher mind, soul-self is the one with subtle cues and clues to wake us up to our magnificence. We are the commander in chief. When we entertain and allow the lies, they can maintain their residence with us and stay disguised. If we say no, you are not true. We can dismiss them, lift the veil, and the Sun of truth shines through, allowing the best of me and you.

We are free when we stop playing both sides, truth, and lies. Confusion, delusion, and collusion are our companions unless we speak a resounding, no, to the lies in and outside of us. Standing for truth is our battle cry.

  OVERCOMING RESISTANCE

“As we stand in truth, the resistance falls away, unless we doubt, and then it is invited to stay.” Janet StraightArrow

 We are like the Elephant, who is trained to believe that the short rope on a stake. can keep them in place, when all it takes is rebellion and belief of self-mastery, and a gentle tug and the truth sets them free.

Teachings in all cultures, religions, and traditions, have the truth in place, and the lie to keep us on the short rope of control and unhappiness. We are afraid to break the rules and release the firm beliefs, that serve no one. We are afraid to be wrong or bad or judged.

Instead, we become the judge and jury and beat ourselves up, and no one else needs to lift a finger, because we have been trained to stay tied, to the short rope of illusion, that we are sinners, and never going to be free.

The truth is, we are always free, like the Elephant, and no one else needs to agree. If we need agreement, we are not free. We are still tied to the illusion of outside approval.

Leaders, and media, and others know how to keep us in line, confused and tied to a stake, of fear and helplessness. We have to know better and choose, victim or victor? Free, or tied to a stake, that limits our mobility?

 KNOW THAT EVERYTHING HAS ANOTHER SIDE

People want to believe in something outside of themselves to be safe when our inner surety is our only safety. Believing in something else makes us subject to an illusion that eliminates truth and freedom.

Learning to discern the truth, from the lies, can be like developing the fine skills of a surgeon cutting out the tissue, that feeds off of healthy tissue inside. Words, beliefs, and fears that destroy the human of limitless love and potential are all lies.

Look at what uplifts you, and what tears you down. Words, people, beliefs, fears, rules and more keep us subject to other than the truth when they do not resonate with positive, present and productive realities.

The powers that be, do not want us to be free. When we are subject to illusion, fear and anxiety, we are a food source for many things, that break us down and keep us sick in body and mind and afraid to even take one step outside of what is allowed.

 AWAKENING THE INNER REBEL

When what keeps us stuck, is being good according to something out there in society, we might need to be bad, in order to be free. Disagreeing with bullies, or family, or religious, or cultural beliefs, may seem rebellious to them, and true to you and me.

Our innate nature is goodness, not bad or wrong, or sinners who are not deserving. We are all good and perfect and seeking, the truth that sets us free, to live who we are as pure divinity.

So our job is to be true to ourselves, and unravel and dismiss the lies, no matter who objects or judges us. Our inner self and soul will be grateful for full mastery. Our life and health will grow in abundance and love beyond anything we may have believed.

The peace beyond understanding, is peace, despite the lies of the human, who masquerade as truth. We ascend to full mastery of our divinity, heaven on earth, and so much more, and see us all as beautiful and free.

We are all saints who lost our Halo, when we bought into, the story of falling from grace.” Janet StraightArrow

 ALL THE WAY TO WHOLENESS

Ascending to full awareness, power, and love, wholeness, healing, or a better life, requires zero tolerance for what is a lie. What keeps people in pain and confusion is trying to fit the lie into the truth. There is no way it fits. Holistically focused, is not complete, it’s on the way, but missing the mark, as it still tries to blend the old with the true.

This is where our culture is struggling with now. More than ever we know the truth, and yet we are still trying to be approved of, and make it fit into the lies. Discerning what those lies are, is our most important job. Religion, cultures, and governments have given humans rules of fear and control, and unworthiness, as ways to keep the masses from discovering their true power as whole empowered beings.

Moment-by-moment, day-by-day, it becomes easier as we practice living the truth that sets us free. When we all embody our divinity, the world and her people will align and awaken our higher purpose and life as humanity.

No need for addictions, abuse or destruction, or control. We only need walk our walk, and experience and see, the truth is wonderful and empowering, to be the best we can be. Each one of us can Be The Medicine, as we show the way, by embodying the truth, as others choose to be free.

 Enjoy the Journey.
