Because life always is, so it’s more a matter of embodying the energy state of one who is thrilled and feels deserving and adorable enough to receive it’s gifts in full.
Being a Courtesan of Life is about having such a marvelous time that the treasures from the universe manifesting around you are just a generous frosting on top of a superb and perfect as it is cake. And you are delighted and deeply appreciative to be blessed with such delicious offerings, and you savour and enjoy them deeply, but they are not at all necessary for it is YOU that brings the joy and pleasure and sense of deep knowing and satisfaction with you every where you go.
If you believe and known to be true that vibration/energy/mindset is the biggest factor in what you attract and the reality you create but you don’t actually PUT that as your first priority…you create misalignment.
My best stuff, my most powerful, aligned, GREAT feeling message comes out in those convos. And I often think, Man! (woman?) if only others could hear what we are talking about, if only I could publish this conversation!
It’s not your action that creates what you want. It is your STATE.
Will action be required? Yes. Will it be the CAUSE? No.
It is your STATE that is the key. It is your vibration, your mood, your energy, your mindset that attracts and allows what you desire. It is not your actions that are the cause of your outcomes and successes.
The action you take is a small, necessary part, not the reason for the result.
Actions are just the a little, obvious, middle step to be simply and easily completed.
Say your desired outcome is to light up a bulb via a lamp.
The action of turning on the switch isn’t the CAUSE of the light coming on. It kinds seems like it, but it is the electricity that flows though the lamp that CAUSES the light to illuminate.
Flicking the switch was mostly irreverent because the goal was to illuminate the light bulb and there are hundreds of possible options for doing that. You could get a lamp that doesn’t even have a switch. You could get a lamp with an automatic on/off switch on a timer. You could have a touch lamp where you tap the base to turn it on, no switching require.
And it is my intention to not just hear that and think “nice idea”, but to actually LIVE it.
There are a lot of aspects to this;
– Part of putting my pleasure first is doing things with my toddler that -I- want to do, not just purely for her benefit. Like today, we went on a beach walk and to one of my favourite cafes because -I- want to. I allowed my first thought to be, what would I like to do today?
– Part of MY pleasure is the pleasure that comes from ensuring I take my daughter to places where I don’t have to place a whole lot of rules and limits on her. Places where she has a large amount of freedom to explore and play. Places (and during times) that SHE is happy.
– Part of that is getting up early to journal and write and connect and align with my intentions and desires.
– Part of that is choosing to NOT attend playgroups or meet ups that I don’t want to go to.
– Part of that is leaving her crying with her loving and wonderful Father so I can go for a walk for the well being of my mind, soul and body.
– Part of that is the pleasure of choosing to come home early so I can experience the pleasure of comforting a sick child in my arms.
I don’t have this down perfectly, and never will. No such thing as perfect anyway.
But what I will continue to focus on is being an example to my daughter of a woman who does not feel she HAS to self-sacrifice in order to be deserving or worthy.
I can hear the reply. I hear it in my own head often too:
What?! How the hell is this ‘bliss’ following I am meant to be doing gonna lead to the career/relationship/money/body that I want?! I need to get to work!
I know in our action based world with it’s logical steps and how-to books, it can be hard to see how doing what you love and what feels good now gets you to where you want to go. It is unclear from a ‘I need to push push push work work work to get anything worth while’ standpoint how good fun leads to awesome goals.(more…)
Was thinking about what the tangible results are from the work I do with people. How to describe what is so very beneficial about the principles and law of attraction teachings I work with.
Sure people lose weight, get healthier, receive more money, improve relationships and so on. And that is what I guess people come looking to manifest and create in their lives when they start; they come wanting to achieve a big end goal.
We are told and led to believe that to achieve such goals, we need to do things we don’t want to do to get there. That the prize comes at the end. That there is some necessary deprivation and struggle and hard no-fun work to be done to get there.
But what I guide you to, what you discover for yourself, is that you don’t to have an unhappy journey to get to what you want.
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.
