“You’ll get everything you want, when having it doesn’t matter.”-Matt Kahn
Your perspective is what ultimately holds the key in unlocking newer and higher possibilities and outcomes for your life. Notice those with a limited perspective will often blame alleged adversities on things such as, “I guess I just attract toxic people,” or “I guess I’m just a failure and not good at accomplishing things,” or even “I guess this is just how life is, things are just going to suck for me.” Whereas, those with a more expanded level of consciousness and imagination will look at the same types of adversity and say things such as, “this is only showing up in my life to help me in some way, so what has this situation taught me about myself?” or “If something didn’t work out as I planned it must be for a very good reason. The universe within me only has my best interests at heart, so if something isn’t working it may be time to redirect my focus” or “what can I extract from this situation that has given me a better idea of what I want out of life (or a person or a job) or even, what I DON’T want out of life or a person or a job?” The more expanded your “truth” is, the more you allow miraculous solutions to your adversities into your reality. The question you must ask yourself in any given situation is this: “How happy does my “truth” (or in reality your perspective of a situation) make me?” When we look at things in terms of , “I guess I just suck, this is how things are, and there’s no hope of things getting better for me” we come to a very miserable outlook on our life’s circumstances. This definitive, “things just suck for me,” outlook actually blocks out higher potential outcomes to come in, because a belief is what sets the parameters for the rules of our “game”. Truth be told, things like misery, fear, sadness or frustration are actually showing you how OUT OF alignment you are with source energy that lives within you, aka your inner mastery. Notice the more aligned you are with mastery and source energy the more your perspective allows for you to be aligned with faith, trust, joy, relaxation, ease, and inner peace, no matter what happens! Faith is something that takes years to cultivate and the less inclined we are to control every outcome and trust the universe, the more power the universe gives us to consciously manifest outcomes. It’s all a very ironic game of, the more you NEED something to happen in order to be happy, the farther you are away from getting it, but the more you allow yourself to feel joy and fulfillment REGARDLESS of what is happening in your outer reality, the more inclined the universe is to bring you more and more things to celebrate and enjoy!
Think of it this way: the universe loves you so much it won’t give you what you want yet. “Wait, huh?? That doesn’t make sense.I thought the universe loves me and my soul’s deepest wishes are it’s deepest desires for me. Doesn’t the universe WANT me to be happy??” Absolutely. And that’s why it won’t just hand you what you want… yet. Imagine a five year old child that is begging for the keys to the family car so that it can go out for a drive. Now in that moment, the child believes that the keys to that car are going to make him/her happy and that is their deepest wish. But the more emotionally mature and evolved parent knows that letting their five year old drive the car will only mean disaster, so, even though the child is screaming and crying in despair, they withhold the keys. The parent knows that soon enough, when the child is old enough to drive a car safely and in a manner that he/she won’t kill themselves or cause serious damage to their life, they will get those keys, and such is our life. The universe so badly wants to give us what we want, and it knows that what we want is coming, but in an act of unconditional love for us, it can’t give it to us if we are not at a place where said thing is going to add to our life vs. being in our worst interest. Imagine the insecure character who is desperately trying manifest their soulmate. They think, “I will feel good about myself when I can get someone else to love me, but until then I’ll hate myself and wish things were different.” And the universe within us watches and waits. It waits for us to come into alignment with fulfillment on our own accord regardless of what is happening outside of us to send us the partner. The fact of the matter is, nothing is ever going to fulfill us… nothing outside of us that is. Any car, spouse, house, job we get will eventually become just another thing that we replace, lose, become bored with, or try to get rid of. To many that may sound like a depressing statement, but in all actuality, what this really means for our lives is that the source of all happiness and fulfillment lies within us. When fulfillment comes from within our own being, and isn’t dependent upon an outside outcome or set of circumstances, the material possessions we acquire, relationships we experience, and successes we enjoy can actually be enjoyed for as long as they last, and when the time comes for them to go, we let them. The awakening consciousness within us is not attached to any outcome for fulfillment. This is why those going through the awakening process often experience a loss of interest in what they thought they “wanted” out of life. This is the universes’ sign that we are beginning to lose attachments to people, places and things outside of us as the source of our happiness. This is a good thing. You’ll still get what you want, and experience the life you are destined to experience, but only at the point where you no longer think you “need” it. Look at your present moment and say thank you. This is the universe giving you exactly what you need and are prepared energetically to experience while also prepping and priming you for newer and better experiences to come. You are here in this place in time because this is exactly where you need to be, nothing ever goes wrong, and everything that is happening should be happening. May you be blessed with unconditional acceptance of every moment of your life and fulfillment of your soul’s deepest wishes and desire from now until infinity, and so it is 🙂
You know all of those things you do on a daily, or maybe it’s weekly or monthly basis that you feel completely ashamed about and remorseful after you do them? Maybe it’s indulging in way too much processed foods even though you know the detrimental effects they have on your body, or maybe it’s the occasional cigarette even though you technically “quit” months ago. As we’ve all heard by now, our subconscious belief systems are what determine our reality and what choices we make a majority of the time. So how do we use this plus the laws of energy in order to unravel these self-defeating habits once and for all? The answer (as always in this spiritual journey).. duh duh duhhhh LOVE. The integration of the ego (awakening process) is about unraveling each judgment we have against ourselves, so that we may be brought back into alignment with our divine nature or also known as unconditional love. The things you can’t seem to “stop” doing are actually the things in which you have spent the most “energy” judging yourself because of. Let’s say you have been on a ‘diet’ of some sort your whole life, well that’s a lot of time and energy spent focused around food AND not to mention, how many times have you used food as a means to either judge yourself as “good” or “bad”(when I eat the broccoli I’m good, but the brownie I’m bad)? In the game of energy, the only thing that can heal and transform our judgments is love. So in order to break through unhealthy patterns we must first use complete honesty as our guide as to where the place inside of our heart that needs love the most in order to heal. In the case of the dieter who wants to stop eating, the most honest confession firstly may sound something like, “I don’t know how to stop judging myself because of the foods I eat, I surrender this issue to the light of divinity to resolve on my behalf” (and at this point send love to this judgment) Or for those with a spiritually decorated ego structure, we’ve all heard that judgment and non-self love is ‘bad’ and not appropriate for the spiritual seeker that we are, so we may even say, “I don’t know to stop judging myself FOR judging myself about what foods I eat, I surrender this to the light of divinity to resolve on my behalf, I love you judgment, I love you.” Now, here’s the “tricky” part. You must be completely fine with making any decision you want to make after that, if the next day you eat a plate full of brownies, Enjoy them! And keep enjoying and sending love to EVERY DECISION YOU MAKE, and every feeling you have thus after. Once the ego is no longer being judged because of the decisions it’s making, no one is chastising it for anything, the need to make these decisions no longer is needed. Who wants to act bad when no one is telling you your behavior is bad anymore? But if you eat the brownies and you still feel that overwhelming pang of judgment on yourself, then it’s back to step one, loving the judgment, loving the judgment of the judgment, etc. Once ALLLLLL feelings, judgments belief systems are loved UNCONDITIONALLY, our higher self expands which translates into “bad” habits or behaviors dropping naturally. NO effort required! So just love everything about yourself. Nothing is “bad” until you have named it as such, and one day you will have loved yourself so much that having an occasional brownie won’t even make you flinch, nor will eating healthy/being healthy all day long either. NO judgment, all love, you are more powerful than you think 🙂
No feeling or emotion happens by accident. In fact, if we have been witness to a certain emotion arising in our body it is the clear signal that said emotion is only arising in order to be healed by us. All emotions are healed by the actual feeling of them. The only way “out” is “through.” When we think of things in these terms, it becomes clear why we manifest situations time and again that act as the catalysts that prompt our hearts to feel certain ways. For example, if there is repressed anger in our emotional body we will find that we manifest situations in our outer reality that make us angry, over and over again until this emotion has been observed, felt and unconditionally loved by us. On one level of understanding it may seem as though we are attracting to us “negative” circumstances because we have done something wrong or we have some sort of subconscious belief that is out of alignment with what we truly want and for that reason we continue to attract to us circumstances that make us angry. When we see things from this perspective it is no wonder why so many of us are still blaming ourselves for our lives and how things appear in our outer reality and why certain emotions seem as though they pop up over and over again without ever being healed. However, true healing and transformation can only occur when we do the one thing that may seem the most scary or painful even…welcome all emotions in, no matter how they feel. By seeing ourselves as the light of awareness that actually has the power to energetically transcend all perceived “painful” emotions by simply letting them be exactly as they are and sending love to them with our intention and breath, we actually become the savior we have been waiting for. The divine within all of us is waking up. Gone are the days when we needed a third party healer or shaman in order to heal things for us, or to remove blockages on our behalf. We are the light of the divine that our hearts are pleading and praying for in order to be liberated from its pain. See each emotion as another aspect of your inner child that is desperately wanting not only your attention but your love. When unhealed emotions that were used to being shunned and judged as “bad” are shown unconditional acceptance and love it will be amazing how quickly we begin to heal our hearts and move through painful feelings. The next time a situation happens that prompts your heart to feel sad, angry, frustrated, disappointed or any other emotion that has previously been judged by you as “not acceptable,” look at this situation as an opportunity for healing and to give your inner child some desperately needed love and affection. The more we blame ourselves for our life’s circumstances, the more our inner child feels not only criticized but also abandoned when it needs love the most. True freedom from all emotions lies in the willingness to surrender to that emotion. Surrender is the natural precursor for the light of our being (our divine nature which is pure love) to flood in and wrap this emotion in the warmth of its unconditional love.
Have you ever noticed that happy, peaceful people seem to see a world that is becoming more loving, accepting and open minded? And people who seem to be negative or are always complaining about things seem to be convinced that this world is “going to hell in a handbasket.” Why do you think that is? What many do not realize is that the world is only a reflection of our inner world. The more shadow we have in our emotional and mental body the more shadow we see in the world. You can quite literally measure how well you are doing in your spiritual journey or personal development by focusing on your perception of the world and of others. When our light within grows we stop resonating with the “shadow” parts of the world and actually don’t see things from this perspective any longer. While some may say this is, “turning a blind eye,” those who are more rooted in their light don’t see it as a complete denial of the darkness, but rather from a broader perspective which allows them to see the good and the divine in all things. From a higher and more loving level of awareness, people who are committing crimes or nations at war with one another are seen as cries for help from nations of people who are in so much suffering and pain that their only outlet is to fight with one another. However, even though the world is not yet “perfect” (whatever that means), we are discarding old energies through all of these travesties in the world. Nothing is happening that is not supposed to be happening. When we are more rooted in shadow we find ourselves at war with life, and approaching each moment as “this should NOT be happening,” it needs to STOP. When we are rooted in light and awareness we see that all things are happening FOR our benefit. In a benevolent universe, nothing happens that is not evolving us to the next stage of our spiritual growth and bringing us closer to unconditional love. Take the time today to reflect on what angers you about the world and others still. See how you might see this situation from a different perspective, or how the emotions brought up in you because of these situations are only your heart crying out for your own unconditional compassion and love for yourself. When we become the only thing we are concerned about, the world around us begins to change automatically.
“It doesn’t matter WHAT you do, it’s WHY you do it” – Howard Schultz
The details of your life don’t matter much. It”s the purpose behind them. The purpose behind your actions translates to the energy you are emitting when you make choices in your life. The universe and the law of attraction will favor the path you intend to go on when your purpose is love. Scan your “wants” list, see where in this list you are desiring something out of love, or out of fear. This goes for material things, relationships, job opportunities etc… For example, many people make the mistake of wanting money, a nice car, a huge home because they are wanting to promote their self image. As long as they have these things they think that others will believe they have “made it” and that will feed into their ego. Their purpose is competition and self promotion/validation. Whereas other people may want these same things because they they see money as a means to help others, or participate in hobbies they love or to travel to new places because they would love to see the world. These people have love behind their intention. Instead of asking the universe “what can you give me?” or “what can I get out of you?, ask it “How can I be of service to you?”, and “How can you use my behavior, my actions and my interactions with the world today to better serve your purpose?” When your intention and will becomes the same as the Universe’s, amazing things start to happen. You’ll know your will is in alignment with the Universe’s when the main intention behind your actions becomes love. Hope you guys have an amazing day
