Making Plans & Adapting

 

You can know that you’re really committed to following through with your plans if you make a plan that works for you personally.

Self-sabotage happens when you create a plan that you know you can’t follow through with.

For example, say that you want to start a meditation practice and eventually you want to work up to 30 minutes a day of meditation because you know that it would benefit you.

Mentally; you’d have more clarity, physically; it would benefit your health, spiritually and emotionally; it would help you feel more centered.

There are all these benefits that you know it would help you with – but if you start off by saying, “I’m going to meditate 30 minutes a day,” and then a week later you’re like, “Well it’s Sunday, I’m going to sleep in instead of doing my meditation; I feel good so I’m going to take this morning off.”

That is self-sabotaging, but if you start with something that you definitely know you can do, like say, “Well I definitely know I can start with 5 minutes a day and I can stick to that no matter what.”

So you stick with that and eventually it feels natural to you.

There are all these Psychology studies that say it takes 21 – 30 days to break a habit.  So, if you say “I can definitely start with 5 minutes and no matter what, no excuses, I’m going to commit to the 5 minutes a day.”

You can remind yourself of the benefits – “It’s going to make me feel so good, and it is already making me feel so good, and I feel so calm and centered and stable and clear…” and just keep giving yourself that motivation, and then when you get to the end of the 30 days it feels so natural for you that you can increase it to 10 minutes.

You just keep going until it becomes natural to you because of course, at first, lifestyle changes don’t feel natural.

You’re like, “Why am I doing this??  It doesn’t make sense…” and then you remind yourself of the benefits, and you continue with it until you’re like, “Wow, I did all these things and I really did make this change, because I care about myself and I’m committed to doing what makes me feel good.”

Another level to this is if there’s an event or project you’re working on like a book, or an art project.  When you do that there’s an energy that you bring through and you change things in this reality.

When you participate in life and change reality, life responds.  You want to leave room or the unexpected to happen, because things may not go how you expect.

You want to be a part of that flow of life where you’re bringing through your creative expression and sharing your love with the world and creating events and planning ahead for certain things to happen.

But you also have to give room for the unexpected to happen and just to see how life responds to that and how you respond to it – to the changes that you’re bringing through.

Even though you do need to give yourself that time and space, and be patient with yourself and gentle with yourself, you still need to make the plan and follow through with what you say you’re going to do.

Make your plans and play your part, because if you don’t do anything then nothing will change.  Getting out there and creating and working on creative projects may not turn out how you expect, but if you don’t do anything then nothing will change.

Spring Equinox

Today is a great day to go within and recognize the increasing light within you.

That may bring new awareness to something that needs to be left behind to move forward and fully embody this light, which is empowering to your Highest Potential.

Take some time to meditate and internally reflect on what is being reborn within you and how your old identity needs to fall away for you to move forward with your new identity and your new life.

Ask how you can come more into alignment with your new life.

Sometimes that will include drawing from past experiences, but sometimes it will require a new approach and being willing to have strength and courage and confidence in yourself and your own abilities that you are in alignment with what you’re calling forth into your life

And that as long as you stay in alignment with your true self and your most authentic self you’ll be empowered on this path and this journey.

So, you can leave old fears and your old identities behind.

Take some time to honor yourself and what you’re moving into and the light that’s increasing within you now.

How to align your will more with the will of the divine and the greater good and how you can step into the flow of that and be a part of that.

And a great way to do that is to get out in nature and see how nature’s flowing now and how can I step more into the flow of life and my surroundings and my own body.

Focus on your whole body and how that feels.  Notice if there’s any parts that are in pain or numb…just scan your body and see how you can have this union with your own body.

Just be fully aware of every sensation and send yourself love and feel as good as possible in your own body.

Happy Spring Equinox!

Weekly Guidance August 8th – 14th: Lion’s Gate

female-lion-in-sun

This is a very strong powerful week for manifesting, so keep your thoughts and intentions clear and focused on what you want to experience in your life.

This is not a time to play small and accept what is comfortable for you; this is the time to think about all of your dreams coming true.

What would it be like if all of your highest and best hopes, dreams, and wishes were to come true and to unfold naturally in a way that is beyond anything you could have logically thought out or planned for yourself?h

You know what these desires are because they come from your heart.

It benefits all of life for your desires to be fulfilled…so know that you are worthy.

Accept your worthiness.

You may wish to use the power of your word and write down some of your wishes for what you hope to experience and how are you hoping to be involved in the world over the next year down on paper.

You are also being invited to be aware of the objections and doubts that your logical mind has to the fulfillment of these desires.

It is not your job to figure out how these dreams are going to come true.

It is your job to have faith in your desires, and to know that they can be fulfilled in miraculously unexpected ways.  When you let go of trying to figure out how these things will happen, that’s when you give your Higher Self permission to work on your behalf.

Then, make it your intention to deeply receive help.  Physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually just receive without putting out any effort.

You will know when the time is right to take action.

This is a yin/yang balance.  You need to embrace and embody the yin receiving side of yourself, and then the yang side of yourself can take guided action.

Be at peace and know that all is well.

All you have to do is ask your heart what it desires for your life.

When you’re listening to your heart’s desires there is no right or wrong, there is only pure strength and innocence.

Weekly Reading April 11th-17th

higherself.jpg

This week’s reading is a bit different.  I started receiving messages for the week as soon as I sat down to meditate beforehand.

The first was to remember that our existence is temporal.  Some souls remember being in a space of no-time, and no-thing, that it can be quite strange to be back in a body in a place and in a time.  In these cases, it can be helpful to remember that old phrase “this too shall pass”.

The next message was that you choose what you receive based on how you tune your instrument; the instrument being your body.

It was recommended for all of you highly spiritual beings who are attuned to the higher dimensions and/or planes to practice being grounded in your body.  Balance this non-attachment, supreme energy with still being in this world.

Pretend that you are playing “Earth”…

You can still be taking care of your Earth self, but when you are aligned with your Higher Self, you can do it in a way that unfolds as beautifully as you can imagine…

…because when you actively use your imagination to envision the best life possible; you will find that there are some outcomes you can’t predict because they depend on something else happening.

Instead of making this like running into a brick wall in your imagination process, follow your vision, keep going and think of all the different possibilitiesSee how far you can get without incorporating any “buts” or “what ifs”, or “I can’t do that” or “that won’t happen” or “that’s not possible” or “that would take a lot of work.”

Try to get to the point where you really believe in your vision and can’t wait to see how it comes true.

Then, ask this Divine Guidance to come through your whole body and be practically grounded in your day to day life.  That way, when you come back down to Earth, you will instinctively know what to do to cooperate with the universe to create your vision.

This means you need to be listening to your instincts on a day to day basis.  If your instinct is to take a certain action, or not to take any action at all and get some rest, listen.  In these moments, your instinct is working with your Higher Self to help answer your prayers to create your vision.

I hope this week’s reading will guide you throughout your week.

Meditation Invitation

Today let us elevate our consciousness for the benefit of all.

Envision yourself in a higher state of being where you are nothing but the strongest, brightest white light that you can imagine.  Imagine that the boundaries of your body and your mind dissolve and all you can feel is this white light flowing gently through you.

Some areas of your body might “light up” with pain, or you may feel your spine is compressed and wants to let loose, or it may even feel like anything that holds you together wants to let go.  That can be sort of shocking at first, but know that this light is perfect for you because it is the light of your own soul.  It is the perfect temperature, strength, intensity, and hue for what you need at this time to facilitate your highest healing.

If you feel any of these places “light up”, send the parts of you that feel really good and are easily absorbing the light to those places.  Talk to those places, which are the parts of you that need love and healing, and tell them that you love them.   If you listen, they might even give you some valuable information that you need to know.

Spend ten-twenty minutes bathing in this beautiful light, and give thanks to the light for your healing.  It is highly possible, however, that during this time you will perceive time very differently.  Rather than feeling time as a linear continuum, you will experience eternity.

As you do this, your healing will benefit the whole world.  The whole world will feel your love.  Thank you!
