Wise Words: Dos and Don’ts

As I’ve shared, I’ve invested much of my time coming to understand issues I’ve had deep within, which are core to us all, noticed or not, faced or not. Understanding things about self love and acceptance of self; understanding how to get out of this whole cycle and drama of victim energy in order to claim sovereignty and creatorship; how to move beyond the limitations of the mind into the imagination, intuition and an expanded or divine intelligence.

By going through these processes myself and understanding the energetics, understanding some of the physics and understanding how it impacts me in every different way, it has given me the tools, the knowledge and the wisdom to do the work I came here to do. To do the work to be who I truly am. And to get to the point of truly living…in joy, in compassion, in love, in sovereignty. Why else do the work?

Here’s some dos and don’ts that supported me along the way…and continue to. My guess is none of it is new to you, but in my experience, the wisdom, person or resource shows up when you are ready for it. So, maybe there’s something here for you. An insight. A nudge. A reminder. Or maybe it just feels good knowing you’re not alone!

Happy Friday!

Do…

Develop the habit of observation. Notice your thoughts. Observe your reactions. Without judgement. Awareness is the first step in all transformation.

Take the stance that everything is happening for a reason. Then explore how that is true. Ask yourself why it’s perfect. What are you getting from it?

Get alone, quiet and still on a regular basis. Then listen. Spend time feeling into and imagining what you want in your life. This isn’t a mental activity, it’s a feeling and sensing activity.

Fake it until you make it. Let the mind work for you. It doesn’t know the difference between real and imagined. So act like you’re already the way you choose to be.

If you get stuck, choose clarity, ask to be shown, ask to be supported. And then allow it to come to you.

 

Don’t…

Don’t be fooled by the external conditions of your life or of a situation. You’re the creator. It’s all illusion. It can shift in a heartbeat…if you allow it. Focus on what you want, what you need, what you choose. What you focus on expands. Wouldn’t you rather expand what you desire, instead of the things you loathe?

Don’t fight. To quote Adamus, “When there’s nothing to fight, there’s nothing to fear.”  Fighting it, resisting it just makes it persist. Push means push back. This all about acceptance, allowing, grace and ease. Take a deep breath and allow. Choose easy!

Don’t stop. If you’re anything like me, you’ll take a step forward and then experience a few steps back. No need to quit. You’re not doing it wrong. Change is not an A to B experience. It’s a zig zag, a spiral, a back and forth. When you notice that you’ve fallen back into an old pattern or habit, take a deep breath and begin again. No worries. This is natural. You’re going to get there.

 

Notice some themes? It’s simple really. Whether it’s easy…or not…is up to you?

Wise Words: The Void

As Friday drew nearer and nearer and I wasn’t hearing anything (like I usually do) for the post, I suddenly realized THAT was the focus. The void. Sometimes we’re just in the void.

In my experience, the void is the place of nothing, neutral, zero…which becomes everything. It all begins as nothing. Everything starts as nothing. That’s not just a big, heady thought, it’s how things work. It’s all just energy, sitting in a neutral state, until it’s called into becoming something…no longer neutral, zero, nothing.

You’re not energy, though.

Here’s how I understand things…

I am a souled creator being…consciousness. You are a souled creator being…consciousness. I exist. You exist. Period.

We, as creator beings, use energy as the tool with which to create our reality. It is all meant to serve you. [A topic for another post.]

That’s big…significant…maybe a deep breath is in order…

{Deep, conscious breath here}

So when it feels still and quiet…or things feel stalled out…things may simply be in the void…a place that you can’t sense yet.

The void can feel uncomfortable. It can cause questions, doubts and fears to stir and rise to the surface. The trick here is not to come to the wrong conclusion. I always have to remind myself…oh yeah, that’s just the void. There is nothing wrong. It’s easy to head that direction, but there’s nothing wrong here. All is well. Your creations, your solutions, your life is on its way. No need for doubt. However, that’s easier said than done, at first. As a former worrier, it always felt like I was waiting for the other shoe to drop or like the dreaded calm before the storm. But it rarely was. That was my mind trying to come up with a story and my habit or pattern was to create a story that would cause worry. I did the work to weed out the old patterns and get at the roots of issues that helped me put a stop to that habit.

Eventually, I discovered that there are only a few questions that are truly appropriate here:  Am I willing to trust myself? Can I sit calmly in the unknown, not needing to know the how of it all? Allow the mystery? Can I allow myself to be and feel safe and sound and secure within myself, not connected that to anything external? And can I allow…allow it all to come to me? Just feel and breathe it…and allow. These are not the questions of a worrier or doubter or one who plays only in the mind. They are the questions of one who stands in the position of creator, the creator of his/her life.

So, next time the void comes ’round, I invite you to see it for what it is. Take a deep centering breath. Step into the place of trusting you. And trust that you know what it is. Then allow…allow it all to come to you…to unfold…to happen in the appropriate order, the perfect order. There is nothing wrong. All is truly well. And if you get your mind out of it, what arrives may just be so much grander than the limits of your mind would allow!

It’s simple! Whether it’s easy or not is up to you. Why not choose easy?!
