It is said that doing the same thing and expecting a different outcome is the definition of insanity.
When we really take a moment to contemplate the depths of this, it is absolutely true.
Who wants to live the same thing over and over?
Staying in that kind of set structure without the desire to expand and grow creates utter stagnation and deprives us all of the gifts of evolution that Life has in store for each of us.
As human beings..
It is in our genetic makeup to crave growth and expansion and then contribute all we can to the world through our chosen mediums in order to continue that expansion process for the greater good.
However, when something new challenges our set belief system and daily routine, defense mechanisms kick in.
Fear seizes us and causes us to lock down on the familiar convincing us that some imaginary net is keeping us safe from the unpredictable tightrope of Life.
But that is false.
It is actually staying in the familiar that is causing our own demise because it deprives us of the growth that can only happen by experiencing the newness Life has to offer.
We MUST be open to change.
We MUST be willing to break the structure in order to experience a higher level of consciousness.
However, growth and expansion cannot happen unless there is a willingness to sit with the discomfort that often accompanies change.
Whether we are aware of it or not…
Whether we like it or not…
There is no escape from this simply because by the laws of nature itself, each and every moment requires a physical, mental, emotional, and yes, even spiritual shift within us.
As we consciously begin to accept this, we can begin the process of truly activating it in our everyday Life.
Along the way, there will be many twists and turns challenging our belief system all the while adjusting it.
Trust that all has been set in place so that our soul can discover and experience the greatest possible evolution contracted for its journey.
As we go deeper into dismantling stagnation, it can feel somewhat overwhelming due to the restructuring of Life from a colloquial essence to that of an acute awareness.
This is the beginning of change in and of itself.
This is the healing and metamorphosis process.
And this process may not always be experienced as what may be labelled as ‘positive’.
It may have taken an enormous accumulation of traumatic and emotional toxins to result in a present state of stagnation.
As these stored poisons energetically release from Life, there might possibly be an unpleasant cleanse mirroring the cause.
We must not be surprised if there are even moments during which we feel ‘locked’ in our head, ‘paralyzed’ in our body, or even uncomfortable and unpredictable emotional/physical pains emerging.
Very often this is the ego trying to desperately avoid change and hold onto its ‘safe identity’ while a cleansing/recalibration process takes place.
Be what it may, trust in the light within the process.
Do not resist it.
The only thing that is holding us back from the gifts of the unknown is our fear of the unknown.
Resistance is fear’s energetic way of brainwashing …and we have come way too far to be at the mercy of it.
When we are able to dissolve all useless fear and its resistance through our conscious awareness of it, and seek refuge within, all the blocks that we feel imprison us begin to dissolve and we can experience the change we seek.
And we grow…
And we expand…
And we share…
And we expand…
And we grow…
There awaits not only personal and creative freedom, but also a delicious sense of peace and wellbeing to be enjoyed within daily Life…to continue to share…to grow…and to expand.
