Seeking Outside Validation

It’s time for you to recognize your own magnificence.

“Seeking the favor of others isn’t the way of the Tao. Pursuing status stops the natural flow of Divine energy to your independent mind. You have a basic nature that is uniquely yours – learn to trust that Tao nature and be free of other people’s opinions.”    
~Wayne Dyer~ 

Peacefulness comes from living in alignment with your true nature, honoring your strengths and insights, learning from your challenges and knowing that your path is sacred and unique.

Many people defer to their inner critic, typically seeking to please others based upon childhood imprinting, parental or societal expectations. The tendency is to put aside their own joy and they walk through life striving to attain outside validation.

As we awaken, we come to understand that life is about being an authentic and conscious expression of the Divine. The illusions which surround us become less important as we discover the value of experiencing happiness and fulfillment in the present moment.

Respect your vision and trust that your inner guidance will lead you to see yourself clearly. When you live in harmony with your true nature, your life will become your message and you’ll make a difference in the world.

Now is Evolving

The dance of awakening expands with every step you take.

“To clarify ‘eternal’ just a smidge…
Once the river of time has rounded her final bend,
and the last star in the sky has brightened its last night,
and every child who may ever be conceived
has been given ten thousand names…
we will have just begun.”    
~The Universe~ 

In every moment we encounter limitless possibilities. The tendency of the mind is to to stay locked into the known; however, there’s nothing to be gained by playing it safe or repeating old patterns. Our purpose is to awaken, expand our perceptions and discover new facets of being.

Even when interacting with familiar people and circumstances, we can bring in new energy and vitality by making conscious choices. Expect the very best with the knowledge that those who grace your life are also in the process of expansion and renewal.

When we seek only to learn from and love one another, something miraculous occurs… there is a blending of energies that creates something entirely different. And from this new place of compassion, insight and experience a world of infinite potential opens and we can step through the doorway with an open heart.

 

Stillness Speaks

Many are imprisoned by the cacophony of their own thoughts.

“In you, as in each human being, there is a dimension of consciousness far deeper than thought.
It is the very essence of who you are.”    
~Eckhart Tolle~ 

Stillness is a wonderful aspect of spiritual practice. Cultivate the ability to step into the gap and simply be – fully present, at peace and deeply connected to life. Create several moments throughout the day to honor the sacredness of your journey. Gratitude and appreciation open your heart to receive the many blessings that life has to offer.

There is nothing missing in your experience. All that you seek is within you and all that is required is the willingness to allow the Divine to express itself through you. When we quiet the mind, this becomes possible.

Turn off the distractions. Turn inward. Pay attention. You may be delightfully surprised at the myriad messages of love, light and laughter that flow into your consciousness. You are loved more than you can imagine.

Give Without Expectation

The greatest gift that you can give another is the space to grow and thrive.

“Love one another, but make not a bond of love:
Let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls.”    
~Kahlil Gibran~

How empowering it is to walk through the world without expectation. Each moment becomes an expression of kindness and compassion with no thought of need or attachment to outcomes. Simple pleasures are met with gratitude and appreciation and experienced with a sense of well-being.

When there is no desire that anything be any different than it appears, we create an opportunity to see life more clearly. Energy is not wasted on trying to change what is, nor is it focused on manipulating some future moment to be what the mind thinks it should be.

Let your interactions come from a place of complete acceptance and watch how they unfold. When others feel safe in your presence, they will be able to explore the present moment without defensiveness. The greatest gift that you can give another is the space to be authentic, and ultimately, this comes from finding authenticity within yourself.

Dream a New World Into Being

Courageousness is not about being fearless. It is the ability to move forward and take conscious action in spite of any fear that may arise.

“Experiencing the deepest connection with life often requires taking a step into unknown territory.”    
~Ezra Bayda~ 

No matter what you wish to create in your experience, all transformation begins within. Visualize opening to the vast potential that exists within you and all around you rather than expecting, and therefore receiving, repetitive limiting circumstances. At first, the mind may balk with it’s “Nothing’s ever going to change” mantra; however, consistent intention always sets new energy in motion.

You can dream a new world into being. See yourself as an artist who utilizes divine inspiration in order to guide new visions into life. Forgiveness, gratitude, positive expectations, joyful enthusiasm and willingness demonstrate unwavering commitment to creating new experiences. Each approach, practiced consistently, releases old patterns and resentments and sets you free from past perceived limitations.

All of existence conspires to assist in your spiritual awakening and love rains down upon you from multiple dimensions. Open to receive the new through willingness, imagination and sprinkling a little magic throughout your life.

Discover Your True Nature

There is infinite beauty all around you. It is a reflection of your true nature.
“One who has attained to the essential center moves on, dancing in different situations. Sometimes it is hot, sometimes it is cold; sometimes it is joy, sometimes it is sadness – but now everything brings some message from the whole. Everything has become a messenger.”  
~Osho~ 

Once you understand who you are and what you’re here to do, the world takes on new meaning. There is no longer any need to be defined by outward appearances or possessions. There is no seeking validation from others. There is no desire to fight or stress; instead, one starts accepting life as it is.

This acceptance allows us to step into gratitude more easily. We recognize the symphonic blend of energies that merge to support us on the journey of awakening. The stages of enlightenment that we reach do not ensure a life without challenges; however, they do build a foundation of peace in our experience so that we no longer get so lost within the story.

Evolution is a pilgrimage. There is no end to the journey of awakening – just the rejoicing of discovery, healing, loving, being, sharing and walking with one another.

 

Masterpiece

It’s time to find your unique blend of self-acceptance and purposeful, consistent growth.

“You are allowed to be both a masterpiece and a work in progress, simultaneously.   
~Sophia Bush~ 

Each of us is a work in progress. See yourself as an evolving, living, breathing miracle. The energy of Oneness reveals itself through the constant process of awakening. As each new facet emerges, we can recognize the picture of perfection that is unfolding.

Any perceived flaws simply add to the unique expression of the Divine that expresses itself through you. Embrace them as a source of empowerment and let laughter and acceptance break you free from the bondage of the ego-mind.

You are perfection. As you come to know this your journey will seem more purposeful and meaningful. Each and every interaction, circumstance and challenge is intended to help you see your beauty and magnificence. Train yourself to consistently seek the gift in every situation. Your willingness to seek the gift ensures its discovery.

Neutrality vs Apathy

Neutrality is a world away from apathy.

“The pathway to the state of Enlightenment is via non-attachment rather than negation. Neutrality allows for participation and the enjoyment of life because, experientially, life becomes more like play than a high-stakes involvement.”  
~David R. Hawkins~ 

Neutrality creates a flow of acceptance in your experience and allows you to genuinely be at peace no matter what unfolds. It is also a wonderful indicator when karmic agreements have been completed. The emotional intensity subsides and the person or situation no longer creates an emotional charge.

Apathy, on the other hand, is a state akin to helplessness. One sees no point in living, feels like nothing will change and the personality becomes trapped in heavy energies that suck the life out of the people around them.

To find a personal state of grace and balance, we must cultivate the ability to allow life to unfold without attachment to outcomes. The dance between dark and light opens our consciousness to explore the space in between, a resting place, which allows healing to take place.

After this time of peace, we embark upon the next level of consciousness which is Willingness. The journey proceeds with a new understanding of hope, optimism and intention… and from there, anything is possible.

Protection

Though it may seem far away at times, love is all around you.

“Everything in the Universe is within you. Ask all from yourself.”  
~Rumi~ 

This planet is a playground of discovery. As we journeyed through the veils of illusion we came to believe what we see more and more and forgot that there are layers of love and protection all around us. Eventually, the challenges we faced prompted the process of self-examination. One by one we drop the layers of illusion until finally, all that remains is love and joy.

It is safe for you to act from the heart and allow circumstances to unfold as they will. Navigating our way through the unknown cultivates the ability to have faith during times of indecision. We are called upon to act with courage and integrity in the present moment and trust that whatever unfolds is working toward the highest good of all involved.

Remind yourself often that all of life is conspiring on your behalf. Seek only to bring the best version of yourself to your choices and interactions. As you awaken, you’ll discover that the challenges you face seem more manageable. Reactivity will decrease and a sense of safety will be the grounding force for all that you experience.

Frequency Holders

Your state of consciousness has an incredible impact on those around you.

“In the infinity of life where I am, all is perfect, whole and complete. I support myself, and life supports me. I see evidence of the The Law working all around me and in every area of my life. I reinforce that which I learn in joyous ways. My day begins with gratitude and joy. I look forward with enthusiasm to the adventures of the day, knowing that in my life, “All is good.” I love who I am and all that I do. I am the living, loving, joyous expression of life. All is well in my world.”  
~Louise Hay~ 

As you cultivate a sense of peacefulness in your daily life experience, you may discover that others are drawn to you more frequently. Your awareness, combined with your compassion and insight, creates a space of peacefulness that can impact even the most challenging of situations in a powerful and positive way.

Act with integrity, do your best, accept what is. Know that your Presence awakens the Presence in others. Without attachment to outcomes, choose to create a space in which a transformation can occur. From this place of detached compassion, you may choose to step into the role of facilitator or Frequency Holder. Frequency Holders quietly bring a higher energy to our collective consciousness. Their Presence has a profound impact on those around them. Should you find yourself in this role, take a moment to move into gratitude, create balance, consciously set an intention to be an open channel for the Divine with the knowledge that something far greater moves through you.
