Autumn is sneaking up on us and it involves an era of shorter days and less sunlight. For many it is synonymous with less energy and motivation, difficulty getting up in the morning, disillusioned thoughts about who we are, about the life we live, the conditions we are in, etc. Aspects of ourselves, that we’re not so happy about and that we might have a desire to change, but don’t know how to, tend to be reinforced.
It's easy to surrender to those feelings. This is our shadow side, and it may appear unannounced, sometimes even before we’ve had the chance to open our eyes in the morning, when we are easy targets, and invites us to dance the dance we've danced hundreds of times before. We expect things to have the outcome they always have. We bring with us this false belief that if we haven’t made it before, we wont make it now.
The world is in the midst of an energetically gigantic shift. This means major changes on all levels. When we meet change our first feeling is often fear. It is one of our most basic responses, innate, but acquired and learned through parents, friends, community, school, media, etc. to act as an instrument to control our behavior. Fear keeps us in rein and nourishes the rigid constructs of our past thoughts, emotions and beliefs. A feeling that "I can’t do anything about it. I really don’t have a choice."
But. What if we got an insight that life may not work quite the way we think it does? What if we suddenly realized that the dynamics of what we have, what we want, what we think we can get, is entirely controlled by ourselves? What if we knew that gaining success in the game of life is all about ordering and expecting to get exactly what we want, like in a restaurant ... Would you then bear and dare to do something about it?
This is not a time to throw your feet up and wait, postpone or indulge in apathy. It is a time that requires action. It requires that we get up and out of bed. It requires that we breathe in through our nose and into the stomach, and get power from deep within. On a personal level it means being awake and observe the challenges that emerge, that we take seriously what lies smoldering, clean up our lives with the heart as guidance. Spirit always has our back if we have faith.
Once you have figured out what to give way in your life, that you no longer need, and have put away that heavy bag, then you have two vacant strong hands to pick up the flowers to color your life. In practical terms, it is about asking for what you want (it can be anything from help to resolve a situation to wanting a new job), be willing to take risks (with confidence that whatever outcome, it is perfect and helps you one step closer to being your highest potential) and expect that you will get what you ask for (FEEL that you’ve already got it). The manifestation is done in meditation, from the heart, sent out to the Universe or Source, only to get back to you.
The outer physical world is only a reflection of everything we have thought and believed. Our thought literally becomes our reality. Your experiences reality comes directly from seeds that you yourself have planted, whether it has been conscoiusly or unconsciously created, and the seeds grow to become the plants and ultimately the garden (your life) that you at some point have created in your mind. So be mindful of what you create: If you do what you've always done and think what you've always thought, you're going to get what you've always got. Which means that if you want change, then you need to think and do something different. And it requires courage. It takes courage to expect more and it takes courage to say that "this is who I am, it may perhaps be perceived as someone else than who I have been, but this is me and this is what I expect of my life, because it I'm creating it, with intentions from my heart. " Liberate yourself from the victim mentality and trust that you are who you have been waiting for, that can make the change that you want. When you vibrate love, peace, trust, empathy, freedom, abundance...this is what you will get. And if you vibrate fear, hate, judgement, control, jealousy...that is exactly what your life will be filled with. What your thoughts and emotions do to your body is a very important aspect to the story and I will address that in another blog post.
I send each and every one of you light, strength and love to assist us on this exciting journey we're all on and may you be blessed to take the stearing whee
l with strong dedicated hands and co-create your life in alignment with the Universe and your purpose♥
