Thoughts are threads of energy pumped out by the mind whose only job is to give us a sense of identity and security. This doesn’t make any of our thoughts true.
We create our reality through the thoughts that we believe so its important to know that we can choose which thoughts we believe and which we don’t.
When we choose to believe a thought we reinforce it, accept it and create it.
This is why slowing down is important. Whatever we bring awareness to, automatically begins to shift. By acknowledging these thoughts are not true we can nurture our discernment and bring it into conscious choosing.
Discernment is a knowing that includes the intelligence of our body. Which in turn can create a shift and difference in the reality you are co-creating and experiencing.
If your setting is in default, you are believing everything coming through. If you’re in discernment, you gain objective power to choose.
Thoughts themselves hold no reality.
Our thinking structures hold no reality until we accept them and give them life. The way we think is being used to create a material reality in and outside our bodies.
Look at and to mentors, coaches and role models to help guide you in YOUR own uniqueness and authentic expression. Not to create the life THEY have or are presenting.
Don’t let their life ‘presentation’ blind you. Truth is, no one really has it together no matter how great, happy, perfect or whatever they portray. We all have shitty parts in our lives we don’t glorify like we do the shiny ones.
We all move through challenges.
Let’s be inspired, sure. But do not spend too much time yearning, envying or torturing yourself for the ‘out there’. Or wishing your life could be like someone else’s or wondering why it’s so hard for you and so easy for others.
Be with who you are, go inward and find out the life meant for you.
Discover that and allow that life to manifest.
Your true and best life can only be lived and expressed through you.
You already have everything you need to live your version of your best life.
All the parts are there, go inward and find the instructions
I have loved in life
and I have been loved.
I have drunk the bowl of poison
from the hands of love as nectar,
and have been raised above life’s joy and sorrow.
My heart, aflame in love,
set afire every heart that came in touch with it.
My heart has been rent
and joined again;
My heart has been broken
and again made whole;
My heart has been wounded
and healed again;
A thousand deaths my heart has died,
and thanks be to love,
it lives yet.
I went through hell and saw there love’s raging fire,
and I entered heaven illumined with the light of love.
I wept in love
and made all weep with me;
I mourned in love
and pierced the hearts of men;
And when my fiery glance fell on the rocks,
the rocks burst forth as volcanoes.
The whole world sank in the flood
caused by my one tear;
With my deep sigh the earth trembled,
and when I cried aloud the name of my beloved,
I shook the throne of God in heaven.
I bowed my head low in humility,
and on my knees I begged of love,
“Disclose to me, I pray thee, O love, thy secret.”
She took me gently by my arms and lifted me above the earth,
and spoke softly in my ear,
“My dear one,
thou thyself art love, art lover, and thyself art the beloved
whom thou hast adored.”
Written by Hazrat Inayat Khan
Your feelings are valid, no matter what they are.
Right or wrong, evolved or coming from patterns of survivalism.
They are valid and worthy of compassionate love and listening. Dismissing negative feelings because they’re not in their most refined form, or because they don't feel great, is dissociating and compartmentalizing. It further fragments our emotional and etheric body and dishonors the nature of your humanness. It compromises self-trust.
This leads to repression, suppression of voice, and eventually, resentment with self.
Knowing how and when to honor this wisdom within us is imperative, because more often than not, our external relationships cannot meet all of our feelings with compassion. Most individuals can only hear through their own agendas, and because of this, we must be unwavering in how we give our internal ebb and flow permission to BE, whilst safeguarding it in a space to unfold and be witnessed. It is like holding them in a womb of redemptive love.
When your internal world knows it is safe and supported by you, it reveals its wonder and magic. It reveals with greater ease your core stability, and your movement in life becomes more fluid and aligned with your purpose and authentic expression. The more you cultivate the honoring of your feelings, the more you will find them honored in relating with others.
Through witnessing your feelings and allowing them safe passage in their raw form, they can dissolve and reveal their true nature.
Not everything needs to be processed or understood, but everything needs to be compassionately seen, acknowledged and brought into forgiveness with self.
