You know, through my interactions with clients over the course of January, I keep getting the same theme relayed to me again and again. It's not a new theme, it's been around for a very long time, but now I'm really seeing how this consistent and deeply ingrained theme we have is the very thing we need to let go of if we are ever going to be able to truly shine, and live a soul-full, purpose-full, charmed existence.
Letting go of this tendency hugely raises the vibration of the planet and is actually how we begin to earnestly live a Universal life, in line with Universaly Laws, rather than living based on our past conditioning and the conditioning of the planet...
I'm talking about the longing to follow your passion / dream / true purpose, but feeling as though you can't leave your day job because you won't have any security.
Do you relate?
I can't believe how many of us are in this dilemma... literally feeling paralysed in any attempt to move forward, believing that we won't be supported. Instead, many of us settle for soul-sucking existences in return for money - we literally sell our souls!! And all because we don't trust that doing what we love will provide what we need.
I was wondering what course or workshop I could run that would target this phenomenon, and help to alieviate it, and I decided that there isn't a quick fix to this... I finally feel like I have overcome this tendency, but it's taken me years!!
I believe that this tendency goes right back to our original wound - the pain of being seemingly separated from our Source when we came into incarnation on this planet. We didn't have the conscious education about who we really are, and the space to know that for ourselves... instead we were programmed and conditioned to fit into the 'system' as it stands on Earth, a system constructed to benefit those in power, which is far, far from the reality of our Source, and designed to be that way.
As we lost touch with our true nature, our divinity... we lost trust in this thing called Life, because we started to feel separate from it. and instead we adapted ourselves to fit into the system. But deep inside we know who we really are and we long to reconnect with that. We long to be liberated from suffering a soul-less job and prosper in doing what we love, and the answer lies in slowly reconnecting ourselves back with our inherent wisdom, our Source... and recognising THAT as our true identity.
When you have the ability to connect with a feeling of truth, love and wisdom that is totally your own, you have become a sovereign being, and can now see outside of society's conditioning and your own childhood conditioning. This is the freedom that human beings are evolving to, and from this space, you will feel part of things and will trust that Life has your back... You will use your in-built connection with your Source to spark ideas that can provide the provision you need while doing what you love.
How connected do you feel with your Source? With your own truth and wisdom?
I wanted to write to you today and reassure you about the important phenomenon of FEELING STUCK! We've all been there, and I bet 90% of you feel a tad stuck in some area of your life right now...
Here's an encouraging story for you if you feel that way, even just a little bit...
I recently worked with a client who was at the absolute end of her tether to do with her housing situation. She's in the middle of an unresolved EQC nightmare, and has been living in a tiny, damaged flat with her husband and 2 kids since the 2011 earthquakes. The past few years have been hugely frustrating, and just recently, after being outbid 3 times in a row at auction, the heartache of this ongoing, never-ending housing dilemma climaxed, and her ability to hold a positive frame of mind completley crumbled. So she came to me for help.
I guided her into a lovely feeling of relaxation, and helped her to connect with her higher-self, her positivity, her wisdom, a sense of flow again. She felt much better, and said that while she was in that state of connection, something happened...
She had an idea!
A brainwave! An inspiration! She couldn't believe she had never thought of it before! She came up with a way that she could greatly relieve the pressure of living in cramped, cluttered conditions while her family continues their quest for their dream home.
She left my place feeling uplifted, like she had her mojo back! I saw her a few days ago and her brilliant idea had come to fruition, and she was in a much calmer and brighter headspace about it all.
This story illustrates a very important phenomenon...
We only feel stuck because we are rooted firmly and rigidly in one headspace about something... we can be like a lion in a cage, going around and around in circles, over and over the same limiting thoughts and beliefs, not believing or trusting that there is actually more outside the cage. It's not until we elevate our consciouness to rise above and beyond the cage for a bit, that something amazing can occur...
We can have an idea!! Literally like a lightbulb has gone off in our brain, a ray of sunlight has illuminated a once dark room, angels and halos and hope and inspiration and clarity and a feeling of 'How did I not see this before' takes hold. It's all there... outside the cage.
The great news is that all you need to get un-stuck, is an idea. That's it! It can take less than a second! But having the idea is the easy bit... its getting into the receptive, open, flowing state of mind from which the idea is born, which we struggle with and don't make the time for.
But I'm here to tell you that it is possible! And I've actually built a life and a career around getting myself into a conducive state of mind within which to have the great ideas and insights that keep my business flowing and growing. And I've experienced time and time again, the beautiful phenomenon of more, of miracles, of relief, of seeing through the illusion, of trust, of realising that there really is love and help there for me, I just wasn't letting it in! I was my own worst enemy! Usually out of fear.
If you're stuck, you're not letting love in, remember that!! And do something about it!
Here are 3 simple ways to get into that receptive space outside the cage where we let ourselves become illuminated:
