Today, I found such relief in the knowing that what is happening right here, right now is temporary. Not only temporary but an essential part of my journey to where I want to be and what I want to do in life.
Where you are right now is an essential part of your journey.
How do I know it is essential? Because it’s HAPPENING. I am living it. It must be a step on my journey because I am where I am and there is no going back and eliminating this step, my CURRENT step on my path. It’s here. That moment has passed now, so it’s a part of my journey. Oh and here is a new moment. Woop, that one just passed too. Therefore that was another step on my path. YOUR LIFE RIGHT HERE AND NOW IS A PERFECT AND NECESSARY STEP ON YOUR PATH. All is well. You are not off track.
Where you are right now is temporary
Where I am is part of my journey. And where I am is also TEMPORARY. Nothing in our lives is forever. Each and every thing is temporary and is in fact, constantly changing (it just often changes to something very similar until we change our internal state enough to create external changes we can easily recognize as different. Parallel realities and physics people. Google multiverse if you are so inclined).
Well, I would chill for one. Secondly, because its temporary (and it’s HAPPENING whether I want it or not), I might as well just enjoy it as it is right now.
Like being on an airplane on the way to a holiday destination. Now, I don’t really like to fly. It’s OK but I would defiantly prefer to skip the plane bit and be teleported instead (haven’t quite managed to manifest that ability yet 😉). I do however accept it as a necessary and temporary part of my journey. And so I do my best to make the most of it. To focus on what I DO enjoy. The being able to sit back and do nothing. Read a book. Daydream. I appreciate my journey being taken care of as I relax and allow myself to be carried across the sky.
Making the most of where you are is key
And that is the KEY. Making the MOST of where you are right now. Meaning, feel the best you can feel in your here and now moment. And no, that is not just some a nice sounding sentiment, it is SUPER important, 1. Because it feels better to do so (and all we really want it to feel good in our lives) and 2. because how you feel is what CREATES your life.
You see, if you don’t make the most of your now moment, if you don’t deliberately alter your emotional state, that is your vibrational state, towards what you prefer it to be INDEPENDENTLY of this temporary and necessary circumstance, nothing can change.
Your life reflects your internal state
Your life is a REFLECTION of your internal state. So whatever you are feeling in response to your here and now is what you are attracting and allowing more of into your life. You’ve GOT to make the most of where you are in order for where you are to shift and change to what you PREFER it to be.
And you always have a choice. You can hate the plane trip, or you can enjoy it a little more. And sure, liking the plane ride doesn’t mean you will magically manifest being at your chosen destination instantly, but it DOES positively impact what happens on the rest of your journey to the degree that you can shift and maintain your positive feeling emotion.
I find KNOWING that the situation is temporary and OK (as it is obviously a necessary part of my journey) is enough to start shifting any negative feeling I have about my current life in the direction of feeling good.
Where you are is merely a reflection of your past thoughts.
Knowing that I am still on my path and that my here and now is simply a reflection of my past thoughts, beliefs and vibrational state and need not impact, or be an indication of, what I am manifesting in the future, feels good.
Where you are is OK. Your current circumstance is TEMPORARY. You are not off your path. You are where you are. It WILL change. Do the best you can to make the most of it and feel a little better right now. You are doing so very well.
The totality of it. The knowing that what I BELIEVE impacts EVERY ASPECT aspect of my life. How my whole world is perceptual. How each and every piece of my life, no matter how large or tiny, is effected by, and is what it IS, because of how I think and feel about it.
The complete and totally responsibility of it feels CRUSHING at times. Too large to comprehend. Too overwhelming. TOO MUCH RESPONSIBILITY knowing that EVERYTHING comes in response to my vibration, my thought patterns, my energy state.
And in those moments, I start thinking it would be so much easier to be unaware of all that. To put my head in the sand and pretend that reality is PURELY about what I can SEE. That what is true is ONLY what is physically tangible.
I start thinking that maybe ignorance is bliss. That maybe it would be nicer to just float though life, responding to what’s happening around me. Not knowing I have CONTROL. Not knowing I directly and massively IMPACT what is unfolding around me. Not knowing I am powerful.
You may not be sure WHAT it means, the word alignment, but I know for sure you have EXPERIENCED it. For example;
When you are feeling really in the ZONE. Whether that be when inspiration just seems to flow though you as you do some kind of creative work. Or maybe when you are dancing, or running or playing a sport and you get totally absorbed in what you are doing. You feel free and flowing and in sync.
Or when you are having a really great day. When things seem to be going so smoothly, you get crazy efficient, things click into place, people who normally annoy you seem to be amusing on those days or you feel a level of understanding towards them and are able to shrug off and see behind their normally irritating features.
Or when you have those unexpected moments in the middle of playing with your child or hanging out with your best friends or looking at something beautiful. Your mind kind of stops for a moment and for a few seconds, you feel a wave of appreciation, deep presence and love wash over you. A few moments of Wow, I really LOVE this.
Feeling those in flow, in love, in sync, content, inspired, ease-full, fun, beautiful, content, eager, energized, sure, clear, GOOD FEELING emotions is feedback telling you you are in ALIGNMENT.
But what IS that alignment? Where is it coming from? Why does it happen? (more…)
YOU ARE A SORCERESS. You are POWERFUL, You conjure your reality. You create your life. You allow MAGIC. You ARE magic.
YOU ARE A SORCERESS. You create your life simply by the power of your focus, intention and attention. You MOLD your reality with the deliberate selection of your thought. You allow what seems like magic or good luck to others, but to you, someone who KNOWS who they are, magic and miracles are normal and expected.
YOU ARE A SORCERESS. You direct and wield the love and boundless energy of the universe via your gaze, both internal and external. Your attention is your instrument. What you focus on is MAGNIFIED but your attention to it. You know this. And so you choose what you magnify for the purposes of love, PLEASURE, joy, thrill, fulfillment and satisfaction.
YOU ARE A SORCERESS. Your magic powers are freedom and choice. Your FREEDOM to think about anything you want and your ability to CHOOSE the thoughts you think. You KNOW you can be, do or have anything you desire. You KNOW you can have it all. Because it is the power of a limitless universe that flows through you. That IS YOU.
YOU ARE A SORCERESS. You DIRECT the energy that creates, and is, EVERYTHING. You direct it deliberately and FIERCELY towards what you desire. You do it with EASE, You do it with INTENTION. You do it ON PURPOSE.
YOU ARE A SORCERESS. You FEEL IT in your veins, your bones, your heart. You PROJECT it outwards towards whatever you decide to create and experience. YOU RADIATE LOVE and whatever is the object of your gaze benefits immediately and immensely.
YOU ARE A SORCERESS. Bright. Luminous. Grounded. Sure. Expansive. Passionate. Eager. POWERFUL. And deeply DEEPLY loving.
A client today told me how she had an important task that needed doing but was initially OVERWHELMED and hesitant at the thought of organizing and paying for it.
So she put the task on the back-burner of her mind temporarily and focused instead on the tasks that felt easy and ENJOYABLE for her to complete at the time.
And a short while later, the task was DONE.
With no hard EFFORT on her part.
Out of the blue, someone she had a meeting with offered to get the task done for her and it would be their pleasure to help her out. Some perfect timing then led to the task not only being completed quickly and easily by this person, but to a level that exceeded her expectations and at NO cost.
Of ALLOWING the support, love and well-being that is ALWAYS flowing to you.
This client, instead of pushing herself to take action on the task when it felt difficult and hard, she chose to LET GO of needing to orchestrate the action steps herself and let the guidance and support of the universe assist her.
She focused instead on what felt fun and easy.
And her external world shifted to reflect that.
The seemingly complicated task was transformed to mirror the ease and efficiency she felt.
She CHOSE her energy state. She CHOSE ease. She CHOSE joy.
I pose this question in the audio above as a means of inviting self-reflection and contemplation. I personally LOVE becoming more and more aware of where I am deliberately creating my life, and where I am still acting from old and unhelpful beliefs and patterns of thought.
Contemplation, as opposed to meditation which encourages you to quiet and detach from thinking, is the act of engaging in deep, reflective thought as a means of gaining insight.
I invite you to go somewhere quiet, relax your body, maybe have a journal handy to write any guidance or ideas you receive, and enjoy allowing your mind to meander and explore this topic.
The audio is under 4 minutes long but you may like to spend longer than this mulling over the ideas that come to mind. And be open to receiving more insight and inspired ideas over the next few days as the mental seeds planted by this contemplation come to fruition.
