Masako’s Bare Mind

Message to All Angels on Earth

If you are an empath, you feel other people’s feelings and are greatly affected by it.

When some people said “I’m an empath”, I thought it was some sort of special ability. Until recently I realized that I was also an empath. Because you feel other people’s feelings, you chose what to say or what not to say… or to do or not to do around them depending on what they are feeling. You’ve been doing that since you are a little child, so it’s norm to you. You feel your parents, then, you feel your friends… then you feel your co-workers…. then you feel your boyfriend or girlfriend…. then you feel your spouse… and so on.

That is good in a way…, but something hit me. There was one person I didn’t feel, or didn’t pay attention to.

That was myself!

Angel on Earth

If you are an empath, you feel others and listen to others except yourself. The most important person in your life, yourself! This is a message to all empaths out there. You are great healers and angels on Earth because of your ability to feel others. But sometimes you ignore your own feelings and needs. Please set a healthy boundary for yourself and meet your needs as well.

Take care all angels on Earth. I love you.

Declaration Of Sovereignty And Soul Contract Revocation


Declaration of Full Sovereignty of My Original Pure Divine Soul in This Embodiment

I call on my higher self to merge with me, guide me, and assist me in declaring, embodying, and enacting 100 percent sovereignty of my being in this and every now moment, in alignment with my original pure divine soul and in accordance with my chosen purpose, goals, and intentions for this lifetime.

I call upon the elemental, angelic, ascended, cosmic, ancestral realms and the source to witness my declaration, to assist in upholding the integrity of its intention, and to co-create with me in manifesting my highest potentials personally, in unity with the one, and in service to the Earth as we graduate to the next level of our evolution.

In declaring my full sovereignty and with the guidance of my higher self, original pure divine soul and the source, I assert autonomy over my physical and nonphysical embodiment, my energetic vibration, and all resulting emanations. I disallow any interference to distort or delay the fulfillment of my purpose in this lifetime—whether that interference be well-meaning, misguided, self-interested, or mean-hearted. This includes any and all open and hidden intentions, attempts, and actions to limit, separate, distract, manipulate, disempower, traumatize, dominate, control, or harvest any aspect or increment of my energy and consciousness.

I reject and eject any such interference, demanding that it cease and desist immediately and retroactively, including any trickery designed to cancel, reverse, take over, or sidestep the intention of this declaration.

In making this declaration, I acknowledge and accept full responsibility for my being and actions. I continue to fervently request open guidance and assistance from my higher self, original pure divine soul, and the source, which I in no way consider to be interference. I commit to both hearing and enacting that guidance, and in turn to listening to and guiding the elemental consciousness that contributes to my personal collective consciousness this lifetime.

To the extent that I may be unable or unwilling to hear and enact the guidance of my higher self or original pure divine soul or the source, I request that the guidance continue to be given in various ways such that I can understand and act on it and until I am able to understand and act on it.

In full sovereignty, I also request and accept additional energetic assistance of my guides; my soul, star, human, and ancestral families; the elemental, angelic, ascended, and cosmic realms, and any other sources, provided that it accords with this declaration and is in my highest good; the highest good of ALL; and in accordance with my purpose, goals, and intentions for this lifetime.

I choose to heal all fear, trauma, and limitation standing in the way of my fulfilling my highest potential and purpose in this lifetime. I ask that my higher self, original pure divine soul and the source, in co-creation with the elemental, angelic, ascended, cosmic, and ancestral realms, assist me in healing, transmuting, and transcending all fear, limitation, separation, and amnesia preventing me from embodying my full, integrated sacred masculine and sacred feminine power, love, and wisdom. I ask that my higher self, original pure divine soul and the source direct my healing such that I embody and offer the optimal vibration in any circumstance; that I manifest optimal health and wholeness in and through my physical, emotional, mental, and etheric bodies; that I fluidly evolve according to my path and purpose; that I awaken to and regain all the memories and gifts held in my causal body; that I function with energy, clarity, balance, effectiveness, and efficiency in the changing energetics of Earth; that I integrate the healing, its lessons, and its energy in the most beneficial way possible; and that all this unfolds at the most conducive yet rapid pace possible.

I intend that in healing myself in this now moment, I heal other aspects of myself across time and space, as well as fragmented aspects of other consciousness trapped in time who, through the domino effect, will attain the freedom to return to where they belong, to heal, and to contribute to the unity we seek to co-create in order to graduate from this plane and take our next evolutionary steps.

I offer healing, compassion, forgiveness and love wherever it is needed or wanted to free all aspects of consciousness, including my own, to allow all to return to its natural order in wholeness and unity.
And so it is.

New Year Resolutions 2015

My resolution for the past couple of years was “Unconditional Love”.

Yes, I know, that’s a gigantic goal to reach! I still believe if we can love ourselves unconditionally, we can love all unconditionally. But I realized that there were more steps for me to take to reach that goal.

So, here we go.

  1. I’m going to feel EVERYTHING thoroughly and completely, negative or positive. Focusing on positive feelings helped me to raise my vibration when I was down and out. I mean, if you are at the point either die or change, focusing on any positive feelings will help you coming out of the darkness. But after a while, I realized every time when I focused on a positive feeling I was rejecting a part of me feeling negative, because my mind said “it is not OK to feel negative, negative is baaaad”. Wait a minute…, suppressing my feelings is how I got myself into the darkness in the first place. I’m stopping this self rejection this year. Feel everything I need to feel, sad, mad or happy without any guilt or shame. Actually, this is how we can heal ourselves. Watch the video of Teal Swan I posted below “How To Heal The Emotional Body”. The process may take a while, but it will definitely worth it.
  2. Be vulnerable and say what I feel. Since I’m going to stop rejecting myself and start feeling everything, I’m also going to be honest to myself and speak out what I feel. I’m good at suppressing my feelings and not saying anything since when I was a child. I started to express myself through painting about 6 years ago. It was a huge jump for me and wrote about it in one of my blog. But I often still don’t say anything when I want to say something because of fears I have. “What if someone disagree with me…, what if someone feels offended…, what I feel maybe not that important to anyone… etc.”. Self rejection, again. I’m going to change that. Nobody needs to agree with me or understand me. That’s irrelevant. I want to be able to speak out how I feel.
  3. I’m going to trust myself more and follow my heart more. I often doubt myself. That’s probably from my insecurity. When I started to listen to how I feel, I realized that’s the most trustworthy partner I could ever have. Your feelings will never lie to you if you listen carefully. I’ll keep remind myself that. Then, I can follow my heart without any doubt.
  4. I’m letting go of self-righteousness. I tend to seek agreement and validation from others. As I mentioned, that’s one of the fears I have when I try to speak out. If I can’t come to agreement with someone, I’m letting go of my self-righteousness. Because everyone is right from their own perspectives. It doesn’t mean I need to change myself, instead, it’s a great opportunity for me to expand my perspective.

These are my resolutions for 2015. These pretty much go hand in hand. If I can accomplish #1, I will be able to accomplish #2 and #3. #4 is to remind myself not to get caught up in a separated thinking, who is right and who is wrong, or what is good and what is bad. All are right and all are good.

I wish everyone to be healthy, happy and prosperous. 🙂

A Happy New Year!

Know Thyself (How to Know Yourself)

“Know Thyself”  It wasn’t a voice, but I heard it clearly.  As soon as I sat up in bed one morning, I heard “Know Thyself”.

– Know thyself? Know myself? How do I know myself? –  I thought to myself, but I went on my normal life that day.

It was almost 2 years ago.  It was difficult to know myself than I thought. I only found what is not myself.  I was not what I thought I was and I was not what others thought I was.

I’ve learned a few things since then.  First, I had to let go of what I thought I knew.  My mind had difficult time letting go of some beliefs accumulated over the years.  All judgments came to my mind from my experiences.  Some beliefs were not even mine, but I adopted from someone else (my parents, teachers, friends, society, TV, etc.) along the way without realizing it.

In order to know myself, I had to ask a lot of questions to myself.  When I get upset, I ask – Why am I so upset? What is it bothering me so much? What is triggering me? –  When I feel negative emotions from something or someone, I ask – Why is it so bad? – then ask against my own answer – If it is true, what does it mean to me? –

I realized I could find my hidden beliefs through my emotions.  Asking questions against my negative emotions can lead me to the root cause of the negative emotions.  It was not the person or situation that causes my negative emotions.  They just triggered something inside of me.  I found out most of them (if not all) are from my childhood.  My parents used to encourage me to study, so they kept telling me, “If you studied a little harder you could get better score.”  I don’t remember any praise I receive from them.  Of course, my parents did what they thought best at that time.  But as a child, I started to believe that I was not good enough and I always had to work harder to get their love and praise.  That became my core belief.  I found many core beliefs like this.  Financially… in relationship… everything I interact with outer world is made of those core beliefs.  And many of those were detrimental to me.

I see many people stuck in their own beliefs like myself.  Beliefs do not have to be the same as others and you can change your beliefs.  I decided to choose beliefs that beneficial to me.  I started getting it now why that voice said to know myself.  By knowing myself, I can find my core beliefs, and I can change the core beliefs to beneficial ones instead of detrimental ones.

I think I touched only surface.  Like an onion, after peeling a skin of onion another skin comes up.  Getting deep. 🙂

Vulnerability, Fear, and My Paintings

I’ve been always introverted. I don’t usually speak up my opinion or share my thoughts. It is very scary to me. I feel so vulnerable. All fearful thoughts come to my mind before I even think about opening my mouth. ‘What if nobody agrees with me… what if someone opposes to my thoughts or opinion…’  So, I normally ended up saying nothing.

So, where does this fear come from? Fear of what other people think of me. It is all in my mind!

I used to write a lot in my teens. But after I became an adult I got busier and busier, and eventually stopped writing. All of my unspoken thoughts were suppressed deep down inside of me. Those suppressed thoughts came up and manifested in many ways in my life. After I went through some of “sufferings”, I started painting. Expressing something that has been so deeply suppressed for so long was very much like therapy at that time.

In the beginning, I had no intension to share my paintings. Just like speaking up my thoughts, it was scary to show my paintings to others. All the fearful thoughts came up again. ‘I don’t have skills to show… nobody would like my paintings… so many great artists out there, why would I want to show my paintings…?’ But this time, I decided to get out of my comfort zone.

If someone happens to like my paintings, that would be wonderful. If someone saw my painting and thought “I can paint better than that”, that would be wonderful too. One day, it dawned on me that when someone sees sunset someone else sees sunrise at the same time depending on where they are at some may not even see the sun, but it is still the same sun. Each individual has each individual perception. When I accept that I felt at ease. It is almost like zooming out and including everything. I’m still introversive but I don’t have to be fearful of sharing my paintings anymore.

Now, sharing my thoughts and writing may be different… I want to choose my words correctly and accurately so that I can express close to my authentic thoughts as much as possible. But I decided to get out of my comfort zone on this subject also. So…, this is very first writing of my thoughts. 🙂
