How Is The Past Holding You Back Today?

I have been exploring the idea that what keeps things from happening the way we want them to is resistance within us.

Resistance comes from old thoughts, early life decisions, beliefs, childhood programming and sometimes trauma. These blocks are mostly at the level of the unconscious mind.

You could take the next 10 years of your life and go into therapy to discover what resistances you have or . . . . .
Do I have your attention?  

Or you could just do a simple practice to release those blocks.

Little Shifts Take You Higher

If you pay attention you will notice small shifts happening in how you see yourself and the world. These shifts become more powerful when you acknowledge them and invite a deeper awareness.

When conscious shifts happen new doorways are opened and you have fresh opportunities to expand the expression of who you are.

A recent encounter with the stream that flows near my home is an example of the potency of the moment.

The Call Is Now

It’s time to activate yourself like you never have before.

If you listen each day you will hear the voice of your higher mind/soul/Universal Mind calling you to go inward.

When you go inward you converse with your true nature and the wisdom of the universe.

When you have this conversation you make a bigger splash out in the world. Not the showoff kind but the big energetic wave kind that shifts everything.

This shift:

  • Leaves old ideas behind.
  • Puts aside limiting behaviors and ways of interaction with others that limit your relationships.
  • Calls you to honor your own nature so you can come from a place of strength and presence.
  • Awakens in you a desire to explore and express the greatness of your potential.
  • Reminds you of the work you came to do in this physical form.
  • Reconnects you to your life force, your infinite nature, your soul/spirit so you keep expressing more of this endless force that you are.
  • Places you in the center of your heart so you have love as a force in everything you do.
  • Fills you with the joy of life, the well-being of all that you are, and appreciation for all that is your experience of being human.

All of this is the consciousness you are made up of. Your consciousness wants to join with the collective consciousness of all humans who seek higher expression for the purpose of furthering the evolution of humanity.

The road to this leap has no signposts since it has not yet been taken. Your listening inward is part of the collective call to travel this road.

I am here to remind you.

Today my message is:
+ It is time.
+ You are being called right this moment.
+ Are you moving towards the silence?
+ Are you listening?
+ Are you willing to release the resistance and fear that for too long has kept you caged in the programming of your past?
+ No more stalling, being too busy or just hanging out.
+ There are things to be and do and actions to be taken in the present moment.

The energy and aliveness of that calling is near you right now just below the surface of noise and busyness of the mind.

You can’t ignore it any longer. Touch your heart, align with your soul, and head out on this sacred journey of human evolution for the well-being of all of us and the planet.
The following in a version of the meditation I lead in local community. Do it as often as needed to keep reminding yourself of all that you are.
