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

Or
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.
Eventually, we re…

Ventures Into Love: Day 14

When I am in my room, I find it so easy to focus on the truth of me; how loved I am, that love is all there is, I am powerful beyond imagination… the works.


 But when I am in a crowd, in class, standing in line, waiting with a group of people, I find it so hard to focus. Impossible even.

All those affirmations, beliefs and practices go right out of the window, in such situations and I am left wondering about the usefulness of  enlightenment, if it doesn’t aid you in moments of need.

I think I am not alone in this. We have all been in situations where the group's energy and currents have engulfed us completely, beyond the scope of clarity.

When we are in a group, fully aware of our body and the surrounding physical world, we begin relying on our mortal strength and knowingness.
In other words, the ego takes charge.
We can’t help but let it take charge, because it is the only way we can see in the moment to get out of the suffering. And the endless narrations and suggestions begin,…
