Are you here by accident of birth or is there a greater purpose for your being in a physical body, at this particular time, on this earthly plane? Your presence in this time/space reality has a purpose, and you have a mission.
As I begin writing, trusting my inspiration, my monkey mind is reminding me that it is my usual time for breakfast and a cup of hot chocolate might be nice. After all, am I really ready to dive into the mysteries of life at 8:30 am?
I have discovered that habitual behaviors feel empty, and no longer serve you when diving into higher states of consciousness. You begin to observe your thoughts in an endless loop of conditioned/programmed ideas, and you must say no as you would to a small child who is acting out.
The battle within rapidly intensifies as you close the gap between you and you. The most memorable and powerful gift I ever received was from my estranged father. It was a poster that said “The Greatest Battles are Waged Within.” I had no idea, at the time, how meaningful that would prove to be.
The Spiritual Work
I have learned from my spiritual work that your view of life gains significant clarity when you are willing to say no to doubt and fear. You begin to see life through a much sharper lens, which must include compassion, and self-acceptance.
As you become more aware of the path to self knowing, your ability to feel your connection to ‘Source’ is amplified, and becomes knowable through intuitive ‘hits.’ Now you are connected to your higher mind.
When it’s time to wake up to who you truly are, the universal alarm clock rings, and you are thrust into turbulent waters unable to steer your way to the tranquil shores. You become aware that you are not in control… you never have been, but now you know it beyond doubt.
“Knowing yourself is the key to all wisdom.” You ‘wake up’ to the illusionary life you have been living. You see the lies you have been telling yourself… keeping yourself small. You are humbled and grateful in a way beyond anything you could have imagined.
Your search to reconnect to God Consciousness is the only path for you. You are all in even though it hurts to surrender your beliefs to a higher knowing. So much uncertainty rocks your world. “Who am I becoming?” you question all of it.
You are now beginning to see life as it really is. Now and forevermore, your thoughts join your intuitive knowing with a much grander perspective, allowing you to find a new point of attraction on the “other side.”
Welcome… you are being initiated into an entirely new way of being… you have accepted the invitation to live from our soul.
You no longer live half asleep. There is no going back, you won’t allow that. Faith and trust become your best, and sometimes only allies. Your conditioned way of relating to your life in the matrix is over. You value and welcome more than ever the truth. But, what is the TRUTH?
What is Truth?
The song “The Other Side of Life” by the Moody Blues speaks about the courageous journey you must take if you are to be authentically engaged in your own developing expansion: “Baby, baby, baby, let’s investigate … the other side of life tonight . The lovers and the fighters and the risks they take are on the other side of life tonight . Let’s lose our way , go completely astray and find ourselves again . You know the only way to get there is to take that step to the other side of life tonight.”
What are the risks to becoming a Seeker of Truth, reconnecting with who you truly are? Well, for starters, It can be scary as hell… until you realize that you have been living your life all along for the purpose of “remembering.”
You begin to perceive all you are, and have always been… a spiritual being in a physical body. You are the director of your play, and every decision you have made has been to educate yourself to the contrast of what you do and do not want.
You become increasingly interested in the quality of being that you wish to manifest. In other words, you begin to care more deeply about how you feel, and the transitory pain you may experience, as your long held beliefs disintegrate, becomes secondary. You are laser focused… there is a “fire” ignited in your heart.
Contrast is the essential ingredient necessary in order for you to chose what you wish to manifest in your life. You get to decide what you focus on. The universe acts as a mirror always reflecting back that which is inside of you.
Often, contrast experiences can be difficult. In order to know what you do want, and who you are intending to become, you have to “see” and experience the opposite. But, this is how you learn and regain the power you have given away to others.
This process occurs over many lifetimes, and you become the brilliant diamond that has always been ‘you.’ You gain the capacity to download incredible insight that allows you to create the life you so deserve.
What is the Emotional Guidance System?
What I have learned is that emotions tell you whether you are aligned to your “higher self.” When you are disconnected from the truth of who you are, it hurts. Your emotions give you true and genuine information. Through self-reflection you can ‘see’ the limiting behaviors you have been believing, and make a course correction.
In time, the journey from the head to the heart becomes knowable. Courageously, a profound gratitude for this opportunity is born… then you are truly free. You will continue to rise and rise beyond what you could have imagined, and your appreciation for life is reborn.
You are learning that you are indeed the center of the universe because there is nothing else, but you. You are part of all there is… God Consciousness.
