Sometimes we wait. We wait with patience. We just sit and observe those around us and literally absorb everything. Like tiny little universal sponges. There is something sacred about those internal moments of reflection.
It's when we turn inward and truly start looking at how we want to live our life that things start to happen.
I've been taking a class that is offered by Paul Smit and Adriana Story Hill. You can find information in regards to these classes here on Facebook, or by visiting The Hive Publications.
It literally turned my life around this week when I was facing a huge rut and some apprehension in what decisions I wanted to make and why. Why do so many of us have such an issue with announcing what it is we truly want in our life? It's the conversations we should be having. I am so lucky that I have people in my life who I can talk to. Those moments of vulnerability that are so important are difficult, but necessary.
There are these moments in your life, they are like catalysts, they set the tone for all of your progressive steps you need to take in order to be able to grasp what you desire. I struggled with that word. Until recently.
For me it was a feeling of being selfish. That I was somehow taking away from my family or my surroundings by wanting to achieve either of those words. I was only asking the universe for what I needed in order to sustain myself. I was dimming my own light in order to preserve another's and I was shying away from what I truly wanted. Which was a desire to be blissful. It IS a desire to live a life that is happy and content and loving and full of light and an abundance of the things that I wanted. THE THINGS I DESIRED.
We, especially as women, tend to shy away from anything that another woman, preacher, husband, boyfriend, mother...(you get the picture) would judge as "selfish". When in reality it is only a internalized fear of judgement. In reality, it is NOT our problem to make sure that we downplay our own wants in order to fall in to step with another person. It isn't selfish. It isn't wrong. I started fearing judgement again, and you know what happened, the gears stopped. They literally came to a complete and total halt.
We somehow believe that we can teach our children to reach for the things they desire by not living the very definition of the word. Desire isn't a word that is contrived in a negative context, it is a word that encompasses so many things. My desires are not strictly defined by materialistic items. My desires are very emotional. They do not just occupy visible and tangible space. They are abundant in many different fields and aspects. And what we need to understand is that it is absolutely necessary to stop associating the two words above with anything negative. When you ask for an abundance of what you desire and you are given that gift, then it becomes blissful. It almost has nothing to do with anything tangible at all. Bliss doesn't come from anything materialistic long term.
It wasn't until I realized that unless I reach for what I desire, which included a state of bliss, that everything started moving forward again. It wasn't the "others" who were holding me back, it was...ME. I was holding myself back.
Once we realize that it's okay to let some things go in order to make room for new things, that is when magic starts to happen. Somehow everything shifts into an entirely different perspective. It can involve a lifestyle change, a circle of friends, diet and exercise, a religion or spiritual choice. You have to make room. Tell yourself every time a fear of judgement comes through your mind that the thought no longer serves you, and make room for a new and improved, more positive thought process. I don't know how long it will take, because it is different for everyone, but I know it works. You can sit back and say "well, that's cheesy" or "yeah, right", and then my only advice to you would be to really go over the definition of "bliss".
Because if you want it, it's there. It's a process and it feeds off of vibration. This world is abundant, especially when it comes to positive emotions and a positive lifestyle.
Make a choice today to be in love with your own life and those in it.
