Ventures Into Love : Day 17

You know that awesome tingly 'I have so got this! Things are going to rock from here on!' feeling that blossoms in your gut when you take up something new, start out on a new journey and the likes?

For example, the first day of a new exercise routine, or the beginning of a new hobby… the beginning of a new job, the first great conversation with a nice person we really like, the start of a new self – help book…
Any beginning by choice and passion is a cause for joy and I think I speak for everyone when I say that.
Have you also noticed how that this feeling is confined to the beginning only, in many scenarios in life?
I'll go with an example from my own life..
Whenever I read an awesome saucy 'self help' book, I feel psyched out and buzz – filled! I write down my dreams and I take the steps happily, genuinely excited about the changes I am helping bring about…
Then comes the second stage… that stage where the previously lovely ideas and wishes and hopes start feeling like desperate needs and wants. The present situation I live in starts to appear gloomy and black. I then start to push and prod; I run around trying this and that, despairing the possibility of staying where I am; I try to fix this, I try that out… finally, I burn out and crash and stop.

And I feel this incredible peace with the present. The dreams look like sour grapes and I give up on them happily.
Until the next cycle begins.

Too often, when we start out on life transformations, we get hooked on to this idea that where we are is less and where we want to go is more. What we are now is not enough and where we want to go will complete us, filling the gaps, blah blah blah…
And when we are told that here and now is where we should be in every moment, we think that we have to settle for less, contain our desires and let go of our dreams.
It’s always black and white with us. We either push and pull, making it happen, doing it now

We stop and hibernate. We go into a slumber, letting the anthill build up around and over us.

And I think I speak for everyone when I say that neither feels good. Which is why most of us oscillate between these two polar states again and again.

What if I say a few things that might sound outrageous but you believe me anyway?
What if where you are right now is exactly where you should be to go where you most want to be? (One of my all time favourite Mike Dooley words..)

What if everything is happening so perfectly for you, that you will inevitably take the right steps, go in the right direction and shimmy at the right time?
What if success was inevitable?
What if every battle lost is a prep step for winning the war?
What if your subconscious never really forgot that there is only one Force and that is of Love?
What if your mind's numerous suggestions are exactly in line with the greatness that is You?
What if the very fact that you are dreaming about what you are dreaming is proof enough that you will receive in the most exciting endlessly abundant ways?
What if the chaos you feel in your life right now is a sign that great awesome perfectly extraordinary change is right around the corner? ( This is very intuitive if you ask me. Think about the last time you cleaned house and you will get what I am talking about)
What if, right now, a million beings in the unseen surround you with love and respect and admiration ?
What if you are already what you dream of being and your challenges and journeys are meant to show you who you already are – perfect, magnificent and a wonder?
Don’t look at your past failures for the answer. Your endless analysis of your failures are never going to give you the real answers that you seek.
Look within, look at your successes, look at all that you have already done…
This is what today’s activity is all about.
Acknowledge all your past achievements and successes. Be grateful for what you have already accomplished.
And within that list of things, sprinkle in a few of your present dreams as if they already exist.
It’s all a grand game, after all.
And when you allow yourself to acknowledge your true power, in the flesh,with proof of all that you have already manifested in your life, your confidence will soar.
You will start seeing your own self in a different light and the transformation you seek will step itself up into an all new level..

So lets play, shall we?

Ventures into Love - Day 12

Here’s how life is supposed to work; how we are taught that the world works, how we are supposed to integrate into the mayhem: Dream big. Work for it. Be bold. Go for it NOW. Have a vision. Break the steps down into bite sized pieces and keep making progress every single day. I am actually feeling slightly breathless, just typing those words. The thing is, this kind of pushing and prodding, this complete reliance over one's willpower that stems from the brain and it’s storehouse of experiences filtered through beliefs that alter the experience to a nutshell of what really is, is frankly exhausting. Sure, when we face a particularly trying situation or we are subject to an enrapturing inspiring speech, we feel charged up and energetic. We feel like we have so much to offer, so much that we can do, so much energy to run all the way to the top, that we enthusiastically take steps, turn over new stones, meet people, network and feel euphoric. For some time, that is. Eventu

Ventures Into Love: Day 8

Sometimes, our traps are so simple. The keys to these traps can be right there and yet, we fail to see them. Until we do. And realise that there was no need for repairs from the outside. It was us the whole damn time.  For me, the last practice( playing the detective) was mind boggling because I am now discovering so many words that I use which don’t serve me in the very least. And the fun part is so fun: choosing a new thought along the lines of a belief that is better suited for me is so much better than shopping! Today’s activity goes into this very same practice with a more specific goal at heart; to identify and change a story you are telling. This might be any kind of a story – a story that explains and justifies why you are the way you are, or a story that makes it okay for you to not be happier, a story that you think is true of yourself a story you feel trapped by, a story of neglect, a story for lack of compassion – that you tell to yourself or to others. Basically,

It's okay.

It’s okay. It’s okay to try and not get it right. It’s okay to not even try in the first place. It’s okay to hold on real tight and you don’t want to let go even though you know it hurts.  It’s okay to love the wrong things. It’s okay to love the right things. It’s okay to be confused about life. It’s okay to feel proud of your saunter. It’s okay to hate your life too. It’s okay to want to change. It’s okay to want to stay exactly as you are. It’s okay to want to leave. Its okay to never want to leave. It’s okay to feel annoyed. It’s okay to feel happy doing nothing. It’s okay to want to do something. It’s okay to want help. It’s okay to not want to take help. It’s okay to be selfish. It’s okay to be selfless. It’s okay to love with abandon. It’s okay to not want to love with abandon. It’s okay to be afraid of the dark. It’s okay to like being in the dark too. It’s okay to be afraid of facing the light. It’s okay if you can’t find the light. It’s okay if you wan
