How Often Would You Like Me to Post?

I don’t know if this is going to work but I really hope it is.

Dear reader, I’ve spoken to you directly but never engaged so actively with you before, even though I’ve often wished to. So, this is exciting and I’m looking forward to seeing what happens. I really hope you get in touch below.

I’m so grateful that you’re here, reading my posts, perhaps following me and I’m here to let you know you matter.  Without you, I wouldn’t be doing this blog or developing my service in the way that has unfolded.  Thank you sincerely from the depths of my heart. 

And to DiosRaw and Sarita A, “thank you, thank you thank you!”  You are the ones who stop and say “Hi!”, you are the ones who let me know you’re here.  I see you.  I am truly grateful, your presence makes my heart smile.

To all who are reading this, I’ve been wondering of late what your preferences are with how often I post. Whether you’re a follower of my site or just stopping by, please would you take a moment to let me know what you think about that. 

I write five posts a week, daily, not including Saturdays and Sundays.  But that’s random, I don’t know if that’s too much or not enough.  Well, I can’t imagine it’s not enough because most people have more to do on the weekends and we all need a break from social media, don’t we?

But is it too much in a busy world full of information? 

Below, you will find a little poll, it will take a couple of seconds.  Please let me know your preferences with how often I post, it’s anonymous.

And if you would like to say more, just leave me a comment below or send a private comment via the ‘Contact’ page.

Thank you so much for doing this, I really appreciate hearing your voice.

Love and blessings to you all, Ananda x

Oh God, Who Art Thou?

Recently, I read a Facebook conversation about using the word God as a form of swearing. And like Facebook discussions sometimes do, it turned into a heated debate. This one was between some devout Christians and some that clearly think Christians are deluding themselves. There’s nothing like Facebook conversations to bring out a polarity of views.

The original question was about phrases people can’t stand and I was surprised to see how many were offended when people say “oh my God!”

I’m not really a user of this phrase but do sometimes say, “oh my Goddess!” and yet, I’ve never felt as though I’m offending the Goddess, more so honouring her, really. I sense it’s all a matter of perspective and intent, and, I suppose, many who do use that phrase, do so without thinking.

The word ‘God’ has never really felt a comfortable one for me, I’ve often avoided using it, opting for ‘The Creator’. ‘God’ has a masculine gender identity and I don’t feel the Creator has gender. The Creator includes everything and therefore is a perfect mix of both feminine and masculine energies.

My sense is that every one of us is a mix of feminine and masculine energy, and energy is what we are, in our fundamental state of being. I’m a woman, capable of being soft and feminine but can also bring out my masculine attributes, directive, active energy. Every woman can be the same and every man can be soft and nurturing. It’s all energy. Can you sense both the feminine and masculine qualities inside yourself?

I don’t think the Creator is much concerned, let alone offended, with swearing or name-calling. It feels like the kind of concern humans with ego and judgmental, critical bias would apply.

The Creator must have heard it all. To me, the Creator’s greatest qualities are unconditional love and compassion. That vengeful, easily offended deity depicted in the Old Testament just isn’t on my radar. I put that understanding of God down to humans interfering with the ancient texts, using God to wield their own power. It smacks of power over and the Creator’s power is found within.

I will be more aware if ever the God-word slips out, I’ve noticed that my expletives have naturally diminished under the influence of my more enlightened soul. Every word we utter is energy, every word is power, a spell and a prayer. As we raise our energies, so we reduce those lower vibrational habits. Even though we may not much notice, our soul is aware of what serves us and elevates us and what doesn’t. And when invited, our soul will regulate our thoughts, words and actions for our greater fulfilment.
