If you haven’t noticed lately, things are rapidly shifting on our planet. Everything is changing and fast. We are in a period of “letting go” and releasing what no longer works in our lives. We are in a time of shedding those old skins and also those old dysfunctional patterns that no longer serve the person we are becoming.
In my own life I have had to let go of literally everything in my outer life. When I say “outer life” I mean homes, possessions, pets, and relationships. It would be easy for me to say that I’ve lost everything. But the truth is I am finding the most important thing I could possibly find…myself. I have not lost myself. On the contrary. When all distractions are removed we move closer and closer to ourselves and our own connection with the divine source of all life, many of us call God.
When we try and hold on to what is not serving us, or not working in our lives we create unnecessary struggle. We may find that by holding on, and resisting the flow of life that we create disease, depression, and unhappiness. This is because we are resisting the flow and our energy becomes stagnant.
It is my belief that we are all moving towards enlightenment. But not everyone is actively working on themselves. Have you noticed? To actively work on yourself you must be willing to look at your own shadow and take responsibility for what is being created in your reality. If you are committed to working on yourself and you are with a partner who avoids looking at himself/herself like the plague, you are in a dead end relationship. Lets face it! There is zero compatibility between one who is actively pursuing enlightenment, personal awareness, or personal and spiritual growth, and one who is not. We can’t do the work for others. Our job is to work on ourselves. We can inspire others through our own growth and by letting our own inner light shine brightly. But we can’t really help others to change. Especially if those we are trying to help don’t see that there is anything that needs changing.
I often hear “but I really love that person.” It is perfectly O.K. For you to love that person. But it is important to reflect on your true motivations for staying in a relationship. Is it really love? Or is it dependency or some kind of need being met that keeps you cycling in a familiar old pattern?
Those old patterns need to be healed now. We are doing our last dance with old familiar patterns. It’s time to release them. Its time to move beyond them. Its time to really learn the lessons we have been, up until now, resisting so that we can move forward into our highest expression of self.
It hurts to let go of those we have built our life around, I know. But we can’t allow pain to stop us from moving forward in our life. Pain is a part of life. Have you noticed? We must be willing to embrace the pain, feel it, let it go and move forward. You will only feel stuck in the pain if you are still in resistance. If you resist the pain, for example, it will persist. You can’t “get rid of pain.” That would be trying to control it. But if you allow yourself to fully experience and express the pain, it will lessen more and more and be replaced with more and more joy. It is a process that can’t be resisted if you are to learn and grow.
It is also very important to have your eye on the future, and although it is normal and healthy to process through the emotions of your past, without a vision for your future you might find yourself living in the past. You need to develop a plan for where you are going. That plan may be purely spiritual. “I’m heading for the highest realization of myself.” Or it may be about healing those past wounds so that you can upgrade to the next level in your life and attract a relationship of higher vibration.
Ironically with narcissistic relationships you are attracting a lower vibration and the result is your vibration lowers to dance with that person. To live in that lower vibration is not only uncomfortable but very painful. Because it is not your natural state. You have worked hard to get to where you are and to compromise yourself or fall asleep in the illusion is to betray your own spirit.
It is time now to let go of everything that has been holding you back. Let it all go! Release it! Step into your true divinity. Know who you are. Live in the light of your own being. Join with others who are sincerely living in the light or working towards it. Learn to trust your intuition and follow its guidance. It will tell you when something just isn’t right. You have to trust that.
Things are rapidly shifting and you are shifting along with it. It is a good shift. But it will rock your world. It may turn your world upside down. It is important not to judge what is happening as good or bad. It is what it is. Allow! Trust the process. Align your energy with God, source, or whatever you call that divinity that guides your life. Unplug from those who drain you and plug in to this divinity. Let go of fear. Have faith. You will be transported to somewhere beautiful, within yourself. And when you find yourself in this place you will realize that no matter what changes around you, there is a serenity in knowing yourself and your own connection with the divine.
