When you look up the definition of “woo-woo” online, the first definition that you get (from http://www.skepdic.com/woowoo.html) is:
“Woo-woo (or just plain woo) refers to ideas considered irrational or based on extremely flimsy evidence or that appeal to mysterious occult forces or powers.”
Here’s a dictionary definition of woo-woo:
adj. concerned with emotions, mysticism, or spiritualism; other than rational or scientific; mysterious; new agey. Also n., a person who has mystical or new age beliefs.
When used by skeptics, woo-woo is a derogatory and dismissive term used to refer to beliefs one considers nonsense or to a person who holds such beliefs.” http://www.waywordradio.org/woo_woo/
Due to history, religion, upbringing, and so on and so on, individuals have become accustomed to just being in this society, moving forward as expected and believing what they perceive as proven, or as they are told. We really are not taught to think for ourselves and look within for answers. In the past, much of what we consider metaphysical was frowned upon or laughed at by the majority of society (ouiji boards, séances, ghosts, hauntings, hypnotized for fun, getting high to feel free etc.) I believe that much of this came from fear…of the unknown, of embarking on your own path. That still prevails today. As the energy is changing, individuals are realizing that there is more, yet are not sure what to do about it. It is so much easier to take the beaten path and be told how to think or feel or what to take to be healed and so on.
As I see it, it is time for us to present other ways for individuals to be. We can present them with metaphysical ways and things that can assist them without fear, learning to trust and allow ourselves to see thing differently. Because of the fear and emotion of all of this, the presentation, especially at first, must be gentle and somehow grab attention in people’s real worlds.
We are all aware that we must “speak our truth quietly and clearly.” What is important to me here is the “clearly”. Yes, I would like to teach people and I can state it forcefully. However, what is clear for me is not clear for others. In trying to get this important information out, I must think of what will come across clearly to as many people as are open to receive it at this time. Little things make a difference.
For instance, I can say, “Maitreya is a strong Master who gives much information as to how we should live. He speaks through Margaret McElroy.” Or I could say “Margaret McElroy is a wonderful woman who channels beautiful life messages from a Master named Maitreya.”
I can say “Put some rocks and special stones around your house and they will protect you and bring you money.” Or I can say, “There is a great stone/gem that carries energy that can assist you to be open and allow abundance to flow.”
I can go on but it is not necessary. It is an exciting time. We all are anxious to get it going (those upstairs, as Margaret calls them, are anxious as well). I just know that we must let it unfold one step at a time, as it should, for maximum benefit. What I notice is that as I am trusting and things are just flowing through me in a practical manner.
“Do not let the self come through and say this is what people must know. Let the higher self and spirit come through and give what others are ready to receive.”
