If today were the last day of this world before it blew up, how would I spend it? Many indigenous people talk about living each day as if it is your last. I heard it again recently and thought I would think about it while writing this blog posting.
Many thoughts ran through my mind. My family, my friends, memories of times past, regret for it being over, so many things to think about and ponder their value to me. What would I do for the last 24 hours of my time here in this world?
As I mulled it over and over, a structure began to outline itself and with that insight, peace began to flow through my Being. Peace, calmness and a sense of well-being. This is what I would do:
♥ I would go to a place in nature with water and plenty of dirt or sand to write in.
♥ I would write a gratitude list that the world ending would send back to Source.
♥ I would sit in the silence and savor the now moments as they strung into pearls of wisdom expressing this world and the beauty that It and I were together within its evolution.
♥ I would lovingly and joyfully embrace the change I was Becoming.
♥ I would completely surrender to the Moments expanding out into greater Beingness as I said good-bye to the last moment and welcomed the New Being I was birthing.
In Essence I would:
Be the Change
Embrace the Change
Enjoy every moment in every way
Love who I am, who I am becoming and Know that All is Well!
This week has been an emotionally learning one. My ride to “wisdom” has not always been easy and this one was no exception. One of my “flows” had stopped flowing. It was blocked and there appeared to be no moving it. Nothing was working. Sharing my situation with a dear friend, she saw that a brick wall was blocking my flow and my feet were moving a hundred miles an hour in an effort to knock it down. What she further got was that I had to stop fighting it and surrender to what is. Now I know all of that, but for some reason it had not permeated my conscious mind in the fear of the moment.
Fear is a big part of what is happening when things aren’t working. It can crop up so suddenly and stop everything! Thankfully I have surrounded myself with a group of family and friends who will remind me of what I have lost touch with in the emotional moment of what is happening. They are:
♥ Focus on the present moment and start your gratitude list. Being grateful for all of the small and big things that are working on a daily basis brings the focus back to what is working and how much of your life is working!
♥ Fighting goes against the flow! Fighting what is keeps us stuck in place and allows nothing to flow.
♥ Surrender = Acceptance. Sit down, close your eyes, use your breathing to relax and accept the moment as it is. Keep doing this and string the moments together like a necklace until Acceptance enters your world and lives there.
♥ Focus on your strengths! What we focus our thoughts on manifests in our lives. Our strengths are Love, Gratitude, Acceptance, Sharing, Connecting, and seeing life through the eyes of awe and beauty!
♥ Our Strengths are what helped us to survive and evolve through life. By building on them, flow happens as an out-picturing of them at work.
If your week isn’t working out as you would like, take the time to reread this Blog and think about what I experienced and what I needed to remember. Consider writing the 5 things to remember down so that you have them with you at all times. When the going gets rough, bring them out and reread them to remind you in this moment what to do.
Surrender = Acceptance
Accepting what is allows our flow to return!
As we grow older, we start making more aware choices of where to we place our emotional energy. We are faced each moment with opportunities to decide where our energies go. Perhaps the television is on and candidates are debating. Do I watch them debate and take sides? Or do I just observe as a “silent witness?” I watch a show on television and people are arguing. Do I find myself tight with anxiety; do I get involved in the emotion? Or do I just watch it interestedly for the story or for the creativity involved in the production? How about walking down the street and hearing people arguing? How do I feel when I see children being yelled at by their parents in the park? Where do I place my energies when life happens?
I have a choice to take on the energies of other peoples’ issues. They’re not my issues, so why would I want to take them on? When I start getting emotionally involved in the issues of others, I have taken on some of that energy, and if I keep that energy in my fields, I get to have lots of opportunities to work through that energy and the charge around it. I also start to see life through the filters of that energy. I would think that each of us has enough of our own challenges to work through without taking on the energy of someone else’s challenges. This is a major issue for those people that are empaths, and “feel” for others.
The first step in not getting caught up in situations is to be aware. We may find ourselves traveling the path into an emotional storm, but the moment you become consciously aware of it, you can make a choice. You can immediately stop, take a deep breath, and step back. As you take a breath you can mentally state, “I have no argument with you.” You can then turn around and leave…if you choose. It’s all about choice of action and choice of being. Choice is an Act of Power.
When you get caught up in an emotional situation, you have changed the frequency of your energy by changing the level of consciousness you are acting from. The object is not to get into a state of emotional polarity but to step into, or remain in a state of unification within self. You want to be “in the world” but not “of the world.”
When you step into a state of unification of self, you are in a state of Detached Awareness. This doesn’t mean you don’t have an interest in the outcome, but you’re not attached emotionally to the outcome. The outcome becomes an interesting byproduct of the manifestation process. You can become the “silent witness” to the facts of a situation, and able to make observations and deductions based on a clarity of not having any filters to process the actions through. Detached Awareness in this way is not a passive way of approaching situations. It’s actually very active in that it makes you choose unity or polarity, and then act or observe from that position. If you choose unity, then you perform the actions of being engaged in the process of observation, but detached from the outcome. In this position you can allow the process to be what it is and allow Source to work through the process in Divine Right Order, and be emotionally okay with the result.
Something to Ponder
How does one get into a state of unity and balance within self? One way is to imagine there’s a secret and safe place within you. Imagine a mini self in that safe place, and put a comfortable chair in the middle of a safe, warm, welcoming Flame. Allow your mini self to sit in the chair, and envelope yourself in that Flame. Build that Flame as a pillar up to Source and down to Earth core. Then just breathe.
Practice expanding the Flame through the pores of your skin so that the pillar Flame is also around you. Observing situations from this place puts you into the Now Point, the Still Point, or what is also known as a Point of Unity. It unifies your mental and emotional bodies and allows clarity of thought to develop. Through this clarity, illusions drop away and you can see the Truth of any situation.
