Accomplished: a personal share for 2019

Sharing some accomplishments- a summary from 2018 that carries into 2019 – by Shiela Reed
You know, there are just times when it’s really important to state out loud how proud we are of ourselves. And I’m going to make that moment now and share it with anyone that is interested.
It is not a boastful pride. Instead it is deeply reflective and very much a summary of many things that have added up to this moment. Including a LOT of personal sessions as recent as this week (written March 30th 2019) that have truly helped me through another “rough spot”.
But today as I received another certificate of accomplishment and smiled from ear to ear thinking about what it took to get this this year, I felt my heart beam with the kind of pride only born of a true heartfelt deep self love and a respect for the deeper processes that have been at work within my life the last many years of this lifes journey.
Today I am also humbled and filled with gratitude for the connection I have been able to continue to foster and grow along with and between my inner self and divine creator. It truly amazes me… ❤
I received an official certificate of completion of the 100 hr QiFit Instructor program from the medical Qi Gong program at Zen Wellness. 🧘‍♀️
As some may know, this year I have decided it’s time for me to pull together what I’ve been working on and start my own Energy guidance business. This is so I can share with others the things I have been learning and offer assistance to others in my own unique way.
As I’m working on that, this was a beautiful reminder to reflect on WHAT I have recently accomplished and WHY I started doing it all in the first place.
I recall being both nervous and excited in May 2018 when I completed certification as a Level I and II Energy Coach through transCODES with a Mastery certificate in GRACE Integrity. It took around 2 years AFTER several years of other individual year long programs. 🙏🧘‍♀️❤
Then in December 2018 I finally tested and officially earned my License in Social Work! 🤓 And Iiterally cried!
In all I am realizing that 2018 was a hell of a summary of MANY things I had been working on and can now see why I’m being led to focus this year on putting it all together in a form that expresses this all from my heart. 💖
So as I both excitedly AND humbly started to reflect on all that I have been doing, I cannot help but feel very proud of the fact that I have COMPLETED things I started and felt were so important for me personally as well as discovered how my heart has felt it will be important to share with others within and through my new endeavor. ❤
I truly hope you keep an eye out for the services I will be offering in case they are things you or someone you know might find interesting. 🌹
I am so grateful for the multiple layers of support in my life and appreciate you for reading to the end. Thank you for taking the time and sharing in my joy. 😊🙏
Peace, Love, and Blessings

OUR CRITICAL INNER VOICE by Bryan Moss

For most of us our mind is non stop and busy, busy, busy. Some call it brain noise. Some religious groups refer to it as the devil. Counselors diagnose it as the unconscious. Shrinks peg it as the ego. However the term that I prefer to use is Critical Inner Voice (C.I.V.) or Ego.
You know what I mean. That “voice” in your head that’s non stop all day and possibly throughout the night. I know it second guesses everything I try to decide on. Then when I do decide on something? The C.I.V. presents another choice or another scenario. Then that makes me have doubts about the original choice I made because, after all..”If it was the right choice to begin with then why would other options present themselves afterwards?”
Or it loves to judge and argue and show others how “special” I am because I have a different perception on something. It motivates me, in a very sneaky and stealthy way, to “prove” myself. It has me thinking I need to “defend” my ways and views. It can lead me into a false sense of security by accumulating “stuff”. The latest electronic gizmos, gadgets, toys, accessories, properties, books, knowledge…. blah, blah, blah, and more blah. The absolute worse it can and WILL do….make me believe that I am THAT….. my Critical Inner Voice is my actual identity.
Now you can’t blame me. I, along with the collective (everyone else on the planet), was raised to believe this. However, many are starting to realize this is not the case. We’re not this meat sack of flesh (with no disrespect to our 3-D bodies–they need love too) containing a “soul”, “energy body”, “being”, _______(insert believe system). Our C.I.V. will always put our flesh/brain in first place mode, first and foremost. It wants to make it the center of our universe.
There lies the rub. Back in cave man days we used the C.I.V./Ego for basic survival mode. “MMMM..me hungry.” Then the primitives would go pick berries. “MMMMM…me thirsty.” They would drink from a stream. “MMMMM…EEEKKK!” They start running from the T-Rex about to eat them. Over the years dinosaurs no longer existed. Our Egos needed other things to occupy it’s mind. Thus, judgement, criticism, second guessing and self importance became only a few of the many tools/toys created to distract the collective from that one truth… we are NOT our mind/body with a soul inside of it. It’s the other way around. We ARE light bodies/souls with a body.
Light Bodies = Energetic Bodies using the 3-D body as a vehicle.
Where does the C.I.V./Ego fit within this paradigm? The 1960’s and 70’s movements pushed the ideas that by eliminating the voices in our heads all of our problems could be solved and enlightenment attained. They insisted we had to be sitting in the lotus position to show how we were really dedicated to the spiritual path and eventually rewarded by having no Ego/C.I.V. at all! No wonder everyone is dazed and confused. That is just not possible. Wake up and give up that whole enlightenment B.S.!!!
I learned through teachings and good ole’ trial and error it’s not about erasing my C.I.V./Ego. The Ego is part of the hard wire in our brain. As referred to before, it’s our survival mechanism with one purpose only….protection at no expense. So I’m learning it’s about ACCEPTING the fact I do have an Ego/C.I.V. that’s a part of me as much as my right arm is a part of my body. And out of that acceptance I have found that instead of buying into and being distracted by the “brain noise’ of life, it’s about observing that “brain noise” and possibly learning how it’s not my True Self. My True Self FEELS from my Heart. It’s my feelings that discern my journey’s decisions as I move forward. Not the ramblings of my C.I.V./Ego. Referring to the picture above….I’m not all of those balloons, as my C.I.V. would have me believe. They’re distractions from acknowledging the truth.
By paying 100% attention to putting one foot forward at a time, being totally present, and using my Heart’s intuition, all the while accepting the “brain noise” for what it is…..dealing with my C.V.I./Ego is a little easier.
