This year, to date, has been filled with great challenges. However with the spiritual 'toolkit' I've acquired over the past years, I've been able to weather these challenges with grace and peace. How else, for any other way is futile surely?
My vision board and intentions set at the beginning of 2018 were all about letting go. Letting go the aspects of self, other people and things that hold me back, that are not aligned fully to my Soul path at this time. And boy oh boy, I got what I asked for! But this time I was prepared.
And so during many days, weeks and months of recovery time from physical challenges I opened myself to the flow of life. And once in this flow I became aware of the hidden gifts within my challenges. The messages from Higher Self, from Spirit - which had always been there - but I was mostly too busy to listen fully. Now I was all ears - I had nothing else to do. In this time I was able to fully recognise the gifts that I came to this Earth with. Remember them from childhood experiences and understand my path ahead. The future is never clear-cut, but shows itself as and when the time is right. In the flow of life, each moment reveals the next step. It's not necessary to know what will happen in the future, it's about trusting the experiences in each moment to the fullest.
But one cannot experience the moment to the fullest when one is already full, overflowing with burdens from the past.
One of my greatest insights within this time which helped me let go of so much is the following.
Ascension/awakening (whatever name you'd like to give our spiritual evolution - I like the term 'illumination') is not about doing. We are trying too hard! Filling our heads with dozens of self-help techniques, reading, studying, etc. But these are all mainly intellectualizing the spiritual. And sure, much insight can be gained through these pursuits. And they are a great hobby. However, human nature tends to lean towards the intellectual, the naming and boxing of all things which becomes a barrier to the spiritual. 'Illumination' is about Un-doing!! Our souls emerged from Source fully illumined. And during our lives on Earth our doing has taken us further and further away from Source. We need to not do more, but consciously do 'less'! We need to un-do to return to Source. It's a process of un-doing of the human Self in order to find the true essential Self, the Soul Self.
May your paths flow gracefully and peacefully in each moment.
blessings and love
