How to Get What You Need

woman-thinking-2-620x310Three steps are between your current state and your desired state. That’s it. Three steps. And, you only have to complete the first two. Here they are:

Ask. Act. Allow.

1. Ask: You must ask the Universe for exactly what you want. No beating around the bush.
2. Act: You must perform the appropriate supporting action. Note, sometimes, the right action is stillness.
3. Allow: Receive the feedback that is being provided.

If the desired result hasn’t manifested, you need to recalibrate. The problem isn’t in the process. It’s in how you perform the three steps.

Block #1: You don’t feel worthy enough to make an outright request.
Block #2: You take no action that is required or take inappropriate action.
Block #3: You don’t  receive what comes back to you because it isn’t in the form you expected.

Forgot one thing; let your intuition guide all three steps. This is the only way this works.

The Universe is having a constant conversation with you. Ego can not be at the helm. Remember, you attract the lessons you need more than the thing your ego wants. To yield the optimal results, you have to listen to the voice of your soul. That’s what intuition is.

If you aren’t getting what you think you want, make sure you’re listening to the right voice. Then, repeat the process as necessary.

Identity Crisis

imagesWe’ve been taught to describe ourselves in terms of what we do in the world; not only in vocation, but also in where we fall in relation to others. eg. parent, sibling, middle-aged. Then we take these labels and start to layer them in order to construct a fabricated self.

Although those descriptions may be accurate, the danger comes when we start to assign particular characteristics to those descriptions. For example, you might hear things like, “I can’t do ____ because I’m a mother” or “I’m too old to pursue _____.”

The over-identification with those identities leave little room for self-expression. We start to suppress aspects of ourselves in order to fit into the mold. We elect to live within the boundaries of those particular identities.

There’s freedom in understanding that beneath all those layers, your true nature lies. You are a loving, compassionate, divine being who shares that expression in any number of ways. You are not here to experience a  restricted state.

Remember that who you are is a soul level exploration…and an ever unfolding story, if you so choose.

Cleaning House

jpeg There’s something about a change of seasons that calls for inner transition. Just cleaning out your living space can do wonders for balance and centeredness. Simply stated, creating physical space correlates with creating mental space.

But you can go much further than that. You can apply the same principles to other aspects of your life. The clutter you keep may include activities in which you half-heartedly engage. It can also refer to the company you keep.

Take inventory of all the entities that surround you that are pulling from your reserve of energy. Take time to review areas where you must say no. Carefully consider the people around you who are weighing you down. Of course, you can’t discard people like you discard things, but perhaps it’s time to decrease your interactions. At the very least, be vigilant of the way you feel around them and vow not to get caught up in another’s vortex of negativity.

Release all of the things taking up your emotional space. Reclaim your wholeness.

Give yourself room to breathe again.

Knowledge vs Knowing

urlTo continually educate ourselves is essential for growth. It is crucial for defense in that we don’t believe and adopt what we hear by default. It enables us to make stronger decisions and stand for what we consider to be important.

However, there is something more important than knowledge and that is knowing.

Knowing is that intangible feeling that compels you act in a particular way. It is the force that drives you to make a decision that you’re logically uncertain about but still relatively confident in making.

This is a different force than that of impulse as knowing will always lead to the highest good. Impulse? Not so much.

There are times when you know what you don’t know. It sounds contradictory, but we’ve all had the feeling.

Knowing is your connection to the Divine. Humanity has acquired knowledge, but your soul has eternal and complete wisdom.

Your knowledge will always be limited. Knowing is infinite.

The Illusion of Logic

PuzzleWe spend so much time trying to get everything just right and attempting to put pieces in all the right places. Our minds tell us that if we do A, B, and C then a particular outcome will happen. In many instances, this is true.

However, think of the thing that keeps escaping you. You do everything in your power and still can not yield the results you believe you deserve. You have logically approached the situation and can’t understand why you fall short.

Perhaps, it’s because you fail to acknowledge a missing part of your carefully crafted formula.

urlTake a look at the world around you. There is organization everywhere: the pattern in the center of a sunflower, the rhythms of our solar system, our trillions of cells working in a concerted fashion to run our bodies, and so on.

Remember that there is an organizing power that has absolutely nothing to do with your efforts. Call that power by whatever name you feel comfortable with, but its ubiquity can’t be denied.

So remember that when you are using airtight logic to get what you want, poke a few holes in it to allow this other force to breathe. Allow the magic of the Universe to weave its way through the fluid foundation you have built. Remain flexible as to how things are “supposed to” happen. There’s something bigger at play. Leave space for Universal assistance.

Are you leaving space?
