Neither do our demons.

So wether it’s a red cape or a white flag, they don’t care. What they see are our weaknesses and our strengths. They only react to what we put out there regarding them. This applies to the battle within self as well.

That red  cape or white flag are for us. It’s your action from deep within the sub conscious. They are a message to you about where you are in that moment.

Allowing ourselves the insight and love needed to move through the next battle and come out the other side victorious in spirit is where the magic happens.

It’s when we see the reflection of who we are in the eyes and behaviors of the bull, the demons…they are our ego without bias. 

Acceptance that we are our own toughest critic and well as the cover up agent means we can truly see who and what we are from both perspectives within ourselves.

It means that growth only comes from finding that balance of understanding and forgiveness as well as willpower and resilience with respect to what we find inside.

I no longer fear the blind corners and dark spaces. I welcome trading the cape for the flag to what I find there. The bull becomes my friend and the demons become my angels.

It's not all Black and White https://creffects.com/2020/01/26/its-not-all-black-and-white/ https://creffects.com/2020/01/26/its-not-all-black-and-white/#respond Sun, 26 Jan 2020 15:12:08 +0000 https://cognizantreconstruction.com/2020/01/26/its-not-all-black-and-white/ ⚪⚫Nothing is really black and white. They compliment each other. They can’t exist without the other and they can’t allow for effortless joy unless we allow them to join together and make beautiful movement of what they bring with them.

Understanding of these things may  take time…but if we can trust the work long enough, we can accept it wether or not we understand because our heart tells us it’s so when we practice. Practice turning in so that you can shine out.

⚫⚪Move with it not against it and our egos will abide.

BE THE SEEKER GRAVITY FINDAWAY https://creffects.com/2019/07/12/be-the-seeker-gravity-findaway/ https://creffects.com/2019/07/12/be-the-seeker-gravity-findaway/#comments Fri, 12 Jul 2019 06:10:50 +0000 https://cognizantreconstruction.com/2019/07/12/be-the-seeker-gravity-findaway/ As I embrace all things in this mortal world, it’s good to understand and create your own beauty by studying and embracing that of others. Take what you need from this passage and understand it in your own perspective and work. Man has always sought out the way for the self, may you make your own story of seeking and forever seek.
That is what we planted seeds for this past week, and how truly exquisite the journey is and will be. My only edit is the use of CAPITALS and Bold to highlight my own joy in the search for myself.
The Seeker (Sayings of Buddah)
Master your senses, what you taste and smell, what you see, what you hear.
In all things be a master of what you do and say and think, be free.
You are a seeker. Delight in the mastery of your hands and your feet, of your words and your thoughts.
Delight in meditation, and in solitude. Compose yourself, be happy. YOU ARE A SEEKER!
Hold your tongue. Do not exalt yourself but lighten the way, for your words are sweet.
Follow the truth of the way, reflect upon it. MAKE IT YOUR OWN. Live it. It will always sustain you.
Do not turn away what is given you, Nor reach out for what is given to others, Lest you disturb your quietness.
Give Thanks for what has been given you, however little, be pure never falter.
You have no name and no form. Why miss what you do not have? The seeker is not sorry.
Love and joyfully follow the way, The quiet way to the happy country.
Seeker! Empty the boat, lighten the load, passion desire and hatred.
And sail swiftly.
There are five at the door to turn away, and five more and there are five to welcome in. ( the first 5 are selfishness, doubt, false spirituality, passion and hatred. The second five are longing for birth both with a body and without one, vanity, mental restlessness and ignorance). And when five have been left stranded on the shore, The seeker is called oghatinnoti or he who has crossed over.
Seeker! Do not be restless, meditate constantly. Or you will swallow fire and cry out: “No More”
If you are not wise, how can you steady yourself, what will you ever learn?
How will you become free?
With a quiet mind come into that empty house, your heart, and feel the joy of the way beyond the world.
Look within- the rising and the falling, WHAT HAPPINESS! how sweet to be free!
It is the beginning of life, Of mastery and patience, Of good friends along the way, Of a pure and active life.
So live in love. Do your work. Make an end of your sorrows. For see how the jasmine releases and lets fall Its withered flowers.
Let fall willfulness and hatred.
Are you quiet? Quieten your body. Quieten your mind.
You want nothing. Your words are still. You are still.
By your own efforts Waken yourself, watch yourself. And live joyfully.
You are the master, you are the refuge. As a merchant breaks in a fine horse, Master yourself.
How gladly you follow the words of the awakened.
How quietly, How surely You approach the happy country, The heart of stillness.
However young, The seeker who sets out upon the way Shines bright over the world.
Like the moon, Come out from behind the clouds! SHINE!
Side notes: This retreat is a Findaway not so much a retreat. Find a way to move forward to your next horizon. Be a seeker, find your truth, your passion, your desire to know and love all of you, for it is only beautiful because of the scars. These movements are what is most crucial in finding effortless joy with no dependance on the outcome.

Finding Fear, walking through it. https://creffects.com/2019/07/03/finding-fear-walking-through-it/ https://creffects.com/2019/07/03/finding-fear-walking-through-it/#comments Wed, 03 Jul 2019 13:13:00 +0000 https://cognizantreconstruction.com/?p=3791 Gravity Retreat post
“Avoiding triggers isn’t healing. Healing happens when you’re triggered and you are able to move through the pain, the pattern and the story and walk your way to a different ending.”
Vienna Pharaom @mindfulmft .
“Healing is getting to the next step of acceptance of what we do within ourselves when we finally see our own patterns that defeat us. It is stepping into the fire not away from it , believing enough in ourselves that we will find the path on the otherside of fear most rewarding.” @cognizantreconstruction
The gravity of these moments allow us to turn our corners up into the defiant smile of victory through humility. Pull the trigger. .

When I’m confused about the dark side that emerges to lash out at myself or others….I write. I write in tongues so to speak. I write in convoluted terms, because it touches so many sparks that can help me emege from the illusion of what I am and what is to be.
Are you familiar with the 5 divine acts of Shiva?
If you feel inspired, new ideas blooming, body feeling renewed, heart exploding with love (or hate, self doubt, don’t forget not everything we create is beautiful): you are in CREATE.
Working Hard to sustain, feeding what you have created, nurturing and fertilizing the creation so that it can be as big as the universe, wither feeding something beautiful or retched, it grows and becomes it’s true nature: PRESERVE
Worn out or desperate, the knowing, the destruction of what we have created, falling deep into the earth and fading away, can be a sense of relief that is in the form of pain: DEATH
Jealous, judging, blinded, hidden, turning in, hiding the true intentions of what has died because it can no longer come back, denial starts to take nutrients from what as fallen before, the time when we have to decide what is worthy of holding onto as the new cycle begins and what to let go of. Creation of the new seed maybe?: ILLUSION
At peace or undisturbed, poisons from the previous cycle begin to leach away and nutrients from death and decay begin to take on their true form, comfort in the rest, expansion from the hidden place because there is no other way, resignation, acceptance and appreciation, third eye begins to see the truest vision, this hurts: RELEASE OR STATE OF GRACE
Wouldn’t it be great to be stuck in what appears as the nicer acts of this cycle?
What do you think of with each of these phases. Do you fight to stay in one phase or think you can quickly escape it? Or do you falsely feel that you are in one phase more than the others. True grace turning to creation, we cannot stop. We can delay the advancements but as soon as we take the next breath, this is when we move forward. The irony. We can only delay the movement of the cycle by not understanding that we are there and that each action moves us forward even, even the act of delay moves us closer to the next motion. Every action has a reaction and they are all movement. Deny movement and you only take your choice of direction from the equation, not the movement towards the next phase. Do something to create with purpose or do nothing for fear of seeing what we created….both keep the gears moving….both continuing the cycle. So why try? Because with the death of one habit or experience, lies the tools and enlightened knowledge to take great care in what will be fed and sustained next.
The secret is moving with purpose, because the more cycles you move through with a goal, the better our soul leads us, the better our heart loves, and the more our eyes see.
If we continue to feed hate, jealousy, blindness, the stronger these become and the cycle continues, you definitely grow, you definitely learn, but what are you feeding, what are you reaping?
If you relate to all five acts simultaneously, it’s because you are most likely in all five at each moment of life. Remember, we are made of Mind, body, spirit and soul. They are all cycling at their own pace. Overlapping and repeating as each of our “selves” , learning and feeding something at each moment. This can seem daunting, I know. One can distract and affect the others and vice versa. So much going on.
Agrhhhh! Right? That release and finding grace moment. That’s what I watch for, I watch for that moment of acceptance, that moment of resignation to my feelings, my loss and my growth. I watch for the repeating nature of things, I choose to actively let go of what no longer serves me. I accept that things that I have attachments to also fall away in the tide. I watch for my ability to accept others and where they are more, I watch for the moments where judgment gives way for simple acceptance. No more do I feed the cycle of things I no longer want to plant and no longer miss the lesson from the death of it.
This is todays little rant, my little word fall that helps we unravel my illusion and begin anew. What am I no longer taking with me from the grave, what am I no longer feeding and growing. What can I let go of here. What can I create. What can I send into the universe. What can I work hard at today to ensure death becomes me.

Testimonial: Chani Cranney https://creffects.com/2019/05/30/testimonial-chani-cranney/ https://creffects.com/2019/05/30/testimonial-chani-cranney/#respond Thu, 30 May 2019 15:36:16 +0000 https://cognizantreconstruction.com/?p=3543 I’m pretty sure I would not have survived without Nikki in my life. Over the years I was going through some hard times. Nikki was able to help me through massage but also emotionally. Through our discussions I was able to challenge myself to look at things differently, to accept and allow myself to grow.
Nikki is an amazing woman and leads by example. Thank you for leaving your mark in my life.

For so many reasons, getting outside brings so many chances to get right on the inside. .
What are your reasons? What’s your why and where do you go to find it? .
Living a life I love takes practice. Practicing the things that keep me sane, bring me joy, and bring humble acceptance to the world around me is the best way to be at peace with what I have and and who I am. .
I find thst the more I practice outside, the better I am in the inside. .
