In the great longing to fit in and be accepted, we surrender our unique identity for the safety of being the same. We trade one comfort for a discomfort.
When we decide that looking and acting like another is essential for our well being and acceptance, we relinquish the aspect of our Uniqueness for the monotony of sameness.
And so begins the dance.
Never can we feel complete, whole and worthy when we are trying to fit into a mould that is not our Truth.
Imagine if right now you could stand in the comfort of your own skin and claim this space of your Being-ness.
Right now, take a breath and come back home to you.
I claim and declare that this unique Being is perfect for my Divine Life Journey.
Imagine being in a play, in costume and fully immersed in the performance. Then as you leave the stage it might be enticing to linger in the attire and perhaps the accent for a while. But when the dressing room door closes we are left with our self. Time to change into the person we present to our everyday life.
We might ask our self - Who is this person?
Like the actor on the stage we all have to make transitions between aspects of our life. Some of these shifts go almost unnoticed; barley causing a bump in the road of our experiencing.
But some, oh my word, collide into our Being causing us to stop and pay attention, whether we wish to or not.
These stopping points are the great markers in our life journey; the deep resting points that capture our attention and offer an opportunity of insight that will impact upon the rest of the journey.
We come into transitional moments when a shift of awareness or an awakening beckons us.
These can be in our relationships, work spaces, life circumstances, health or sense of well-being.
THE SENSE THAT MAKES NO SENSE.
We may ask –
Why is this affecting me so drastically when others around me seem unperturbed?
Why do I have this deep sense of foreboding, sense of doom, fear, sadness, heartache, longing, dread or anger?
Why is it that I just cannot shake this off, even when I know that it makes no sense?
SIDE EFFECTS OF TENSE TRANSITIONS:
Restless, irritable, unable to sleep well, irrational fears, morbidity, weight loss or gain, hair loss, skin agitations, body pains, fatigue … and so the list goes on.
"You are not the same. What happened to the person I used to love/like. That’s not like you. Call me when you are normal again. I cannot deal with you when you are like this. You had better change your attitude or … Get over yourself. Life does not revolve around you!"
While these statements are absolutely not helpful, they are nudges to help us recognise that we are in a transitional space. We are NOT the same and we never will be. Thank goodness! We are evolving, emerging, awakening and growing. Transitional spaces are the exact places we are meant to be in our journey towards fulfilment.
As uncomfortable as they may be, these stopping points give us the opportunity to reflect upon the issues we can release – and in so doing find a greater sense of peace, clarity, well-being and alignment in this Life Journey.
When one person agrees to become well, (awakened, aligned, or connected), the ripple-effect into the lives of all those with whom your share this journey can be seen.
It is possible for us to heal our emotional baggage in a gentle, affirming and relaxing manner. We open the door for miracles as we begin to create a life that is more attuned to thriving rather than just surviving.
Experiencing this shift is the greatest gift you can give your Being and those you Love.
Survive or Thrive
Have you noticed how easily we slip into patterns, behaviours and utter statements we can hardly believe are coming our of our mouth and showing in our gestures?
Remember rolling your eyes when a parent showed that behaviour and you were absolutely certain that you would NEVER repeat that pattern.
Well, it seems we have less controll than we think - especially if we are not operating from a conscious thought process.
Why on Earth would we keep repeating patterns that we honestly dislike and barely admire.
We have become locked into a survival pattern - a form of processing that allowed us to react on instinct - so that we could survive.
Thousands of years ago we relied upon our ability to react in a certain way when we felt threatened.
Now, that system of survival is becoming our downfall.
Survival Energy Is Killing Us
In order that we survive we had to learn ways of coping in our environment. This mechanism, once switched on, has been running our human program for thousands of years.
We have become locked into the mentality and consciousness of survival - at any cost, at every cost. Our default settings are based upon our reactions of suspicion, greed, mistrust, defeating, competing, relying, distracting, defending, manipulating, .... and so the list goes on.
In order for humanity to step into the ability to THRIVE, we need to reassess and reprogram these default settings that have, for too long, been running our human system.
