Your head will never understand or be able to rationalise why doing what you truly love will align you with flow and bring you exactly what you require.
Today I have had sessions with clients who have shown themselves by putting themselves out there and choosing the more audacious choice that was in front of them. None of them, in the moment, could make sense of why their gut feeling was telling them to take such an edgy more but most importantly, they went ahead. I supported them with their challenge and all the headstuff that came up and reminded them that this discomfort is part of the deal when it comes to following your intuition, your feeling.
The commonality I noticed today across them all was simply how alive and free and energetically ATTRACTIVE they were. Their physical bodies reflecting this in their skin, how they spoke and their general way of being.
So I wonder how this can be speaking to you?
What feeling are you sitting on and not following up on because you are feeling fearful? Or perhaps your head can’t make sense of whatever it is and pushes it down?
Maybe you are one of the many people I come across who have convinced themselves that they don’t know what they love or what makes them feel alive?
I invite you to give me a call. My love is to support people to gain clarity where there is confusion and certainty where there is doubt. I promise that you will have an experience of yourself living your life in ways you only dream about.
Oh and while I have your attention, I have had great news from the stunning private villa complex where the CoreTruth Bali Retreat will be held in April saying that I have access to another 2 bedrooms….. so if you have been sitting with a feeling that you would love to be part of it, give me a call and I’ll let you know more! One of those bedrooms could be yours : ))
Have you ever stopped to think about this?
Have you noticed when there is someone in a group, your family, at the office, in your friendships, that starts to complain or gossip, that energy more often than not gets transferred onto another person in the group. Maybe even you! One moment you were feeling fine and happy and the next you suddenly feel emotional, caught up and are feeling uncomfortable.
Whenever you aren’t present, you will find that it is almost impossible not to get caught up in the drama and circumstances around you.
Elkhart Tolle refers to this as ‘the pain body’ and I liken it to being like a virus.
So how can you stop the tendency of getting drawn into other peoples stories and emotions? The answer is one of those simple yet not easy things. You build your emotional resilience by learning to bring your complete and undivided attention into the here and now.
You don’t ignore or resist hanging around with people in case they draw you in but rather you learn how to hold your own space when you are around them. This way you not only keep yourself engaged and involved but at the same time don’t fuel the drama and unconsciousness by getting sucked in!
I love this piece from Esther Hicks and Abraham. It’s a large part of what I work on with my clients and that is remembering not to judge the emotions as they move through you but to use them to keep moving towards the next best feeling space within.
“Joseph Campbell said “Follow your bliss” …we think those are the best words that have ever been offered but sometimes you cannot get a whiff of bliss.
If you are in despair and something bad has happened, if you’ve witnessed something and someone is saying ‘you should follow your bliss’, even though Source is calling you , you can’t hear it because the vibration of where you are and the vibration of Source is different enough you can’t hear it. Not that it isn’t calling but you can’t hear it.
So, do you know what the call of Source sounds like? people say it must be like hearts and angels, we say, it depends on where you are. If you are in appreciation, the call of Source feels like elation- if you are in despair, if you are feeling powerless, then the call of Source feels like rage. If you are in rage or anger the call of Source then feels like frustration, in other words a slight improvement from where you are is what the call of Source always sounds like.
If you’ve ever been depressed, you know how much better you feel when you get mad, your friends don’t want you to be mad , they liked you better when you were depressed but you’ve got to admit, at least you are breathing now, you do feel better. So, everything about coming into alignment with who you are is about closing that gap between whatever you’re focussed upon in your NOW experience and who you really are.”
How about we use our voices , hashtags, ‘likes’ and blogs to post and link to messages and stories of love instead of fear? Just imagine that each time we became aware of yet another post on our social media wall that draws attention to fear mongering and criticism (which, if you are not completely present, can take you out and pull you down emotionally) you actively found something to share and counteract that message.
Im not talking about just ‘positive thinking’ here nor having it be like putting lipstick on a pig, but using conscious action to shift your attention and use the power of your virtual voice to focus on the instances of loving action and truth that are around us in abundance.
How powerful it is to take full responsibility for our own state of mind and what we allow to fill it and fuel it!
So for example, I recently re-posted the news that it has been announced that all children of asylum seekers will be released from detention in Australia by Xmas. With a call to action to lend your voice by calling Malcolm Turnbull’s office to follow through on processing this decision without delay.
What I feel will happen is similar to what I experience in my own body and that is a feeling of expansion and lightness rather than a powerless contraction that can often be felt when focus goes on what ISN”T working rather than what IS. Ultimately it is all ‘working’ even when it doesn’t look or feel that way but that’s a WHOLE other blog post!
I would love to hear from any of you with examples of where you have counteracted a fearful message or piece of news with a loving one. And in particular I would love to hear if you were able to notice any shift in your energy about it all. It may take a few goes to become obvious but today feels like the day to start!
