The Art of Living a Comfortable, Meaningful, Stimulated,Fulfilled and Inspired Life - TRUST LOVEFLASH APRIL 2016
‘I have something incredible inside me.’
Much trauma has happened since we connected in March. Feelings of deep sorrow and pain emerged as external conditions become uncertain and insecure; filled with fear and doubt.
It is impossible for ‘outsiders’ to even imagine what the ones affected directly and indirectly, are going through. The soil we walk on, the air we breathe in and the water we drink soak in every emotion, feeling, thought and word. It becomes difficult to stay centred and be immersed in a state of love, understanding, equilibrium and joy.
To trust that all is well seems hardly possible as we are continuously bombarded by collective anger, fears and doubts.
We come out of an era intellectualizing was the king. Unfortunately, this has caused many humans to intellectualize their feelings and emotions. We never learned how to truly feel. We think we ‘feel’ something because we have been conditioned to think we should feel this emotion under certain circumstances where there is always a right and wrong involved.
To stay fully present, centred and connected to our Empowered Selves in turbulent times is challenging. Many times the feeling does not come from our hearts, but from the expectation to feel a certain emotion that is actually cleverly induced by the collective consciousness that is trapped in a state of fear and division. When we intellectualize our feelings, it is difficult to have an open mind as our mind is occupied with the concept of this expected feeling and some kind of judgement. Our attention is captured in such a way that we are not able to access other possibilities or our hearts. We are not able to see clearly and our reactions are not authentic as it is instigated externally.
We go out of our heart space into a space of anger, suspicion, judgment, fear, lack, doubt, and intolerance. We become powerless, hopeless and fearful as we are under the influence of others’ projections. The result is that we see less, and are not able to envision another reality that is birthed from an empowered place, as we loop back into a life-destructive cycle with little or no hope for something better.
We are either catapulted into a gory past or an uncertain future. We are not able to see the other possibilities that the present moment gifts us with. Sadly, our attention is kept hostage by anger, fear, lack and doubt, which makes it impossible to direct our energy and talents to something better. It is most definitely not our soul and heart’s desire to be imprisoned by states and feelings of fear, hate and doubt. These are never birthed from the Heart and our Pure Essence.
Our Pure Essence can never be captured, hurt or destroyed. It is eternal no matter what our belief systems are.
We lose our connection to our Pure Essence in times of turbulence and distress which is quite human as our physical, mental, and emotional well-being is under attack. We might feel disconnected from our Empowered Self and that we have temporary lost our way as we are entangled in external circumstances and our attention is scattered. To come back to our empowered state and a state of pure bliss, is cumbersome and difficult.
To find equilibrium, peace and comfort, we have to go into a space in between spaces, so we can re-orientate ourselves, and come back into the present moment with all its abundant possibilities. Here we can start to consciously direct our energy and attention towards a better state of being for all.
A very simple way to do this is to sit comfortably with our eyes closed, and to start to focus our attention on our breath. It brings us immediately back to ourselves. The slower and deeper we breathe, the more we connect to our Empowered, Abundant, Wise, Thriving, and Joyous Self.
The space in between our breaths gifts us with spectacular wisdom and vision. Here we can sense into all the possibilities available to us. Fear, lack, doubt and hate cannot reach us. It is impossible.
We can access this space in between our breaths in this way: Breathe in for 7 counts, hold the breath for 5 counts before the out breath, and breathe out for 7 counts, and hold the breath for 5 counts before you breathe in again. The space in between is when we hold our breaths for the 5 counts. Here our mind is completely still and open.
In this space in between spaces we can ask questions such as: “What else is possible? Or “How can I respond to this situation in an empowered way?” Such questions will help us centre ourselves, especially during moments where we are surrounded in chaos, fear, down spiral talk, frantic behaviour, others’ projections and the likes. It brings us into a space of equilibrium between perceived polarities. Here we can summon our heart intelligence and not be engulfed and influenced by others’ emotions and projections which run wild.
The heart is strong, powerful and fearless, and also caring, understanding and compassionate.
It is a sign that we are not connected to our Heart’s Intelligence when we find ourselves drowning and bombarded with emotions birthed from fear. Our hearts know no fear. It is impossible to scare the heart.
To contain and stand in our power during turbulent times is challenging, especially if we have emotional, physical and mental investments in what is happening around us. We lose connection to our core when we focus our attention on fear.
For those who attended my Trust Workshops, the easiest way to connect to our core and to contain our power is to do this exercise:
Shake your head, body and hands vigorously. Rub your arms and legs to create a charge. Bend your knees slightly. Have your arms next to your body. Open your arms wide to the sides to above your head.
Breathe in slowly as you open your body in this way and make the ‘aw’ sound as you do it.
On the out breath, step forward with one foot, press both your hands down with power and make the “uh’ sound as loud as possible from within your belly.
What is happening around us, no matter where we find ourselves, requires a quantum leap in trust and the commitment to become aware of what we feed with our precious attention and energy. We can make a conscious decision to start to envision and co-create a different reality. We can become vigilant with allocating and directing our precious time, resources, ideas and attention.
When we find ourselves surrounded and trapped in down spiral situations, we can do the following:
Step away, take a short walk. Breathe in slowly and deeply. Pause for a moment; shake your head, hands, and body. Put your one finger on your chin and another on your belly button.
Look down at your feet. They are perfectly connected to and supported by the Earth. See where they are facing, lift your head up and look forward fearlessly. Walk into that direction without any fear or doubt.
Know and trust that you are safe and supported with each step you take into a new direction and state of being, regardless of what is happening around you.
You are welcome to contact me should you need any assistance, guidance, inspiration or support in this regard.
In closing, we have been conditioned to believe that life has dealt us with specific ‘cards’ and that we have to be happy and grateful for these ‘cards’. And that this set of ‘cards’ are the only ones that is right, true and real.
But that is not entirely true. It is an illusion. We create our lives every day. We are powerful beings. There are infinite possibilities and always another layer of truth to be discovered, and another way to see, experience and do life.
To access and experience these other truths and ways, we need to be willing to leave our comfort zones, which are in fact not so comfortable as we might believe and think. It is clear from what is happening all over the world currently. A much wiser place to be in is a space and state of equilibrium which we co-created ourselves.
Here we do not blame other or complain. We take charge of our own lives. We know and trust that we are the centre of this space and state of being. It moves, expands, contracts, and grows with us as we move around, relate, create, do, speak, think, feel, love, experience, inspire, intend and explore.
Know that you have something incredible inside you
And so does everyone else, regardless of external appearances and circumstances.
It is possible to start to impact and feed a new reality and experience for yourself, your loved ones, others and the world.
You can start today by greeting others in this way:
“Hallo, I have something incredible inside me. You have something incredible inside you. Thank you for sharing that with me.”
When you say good bye, you can say: “I wish you happiness.”
I would like to invite you to focus your precious attention on the space in between spaces.
That is where an abundant wealth of well-being and possibilities await patiently to be discovered by you.
And the breath is not only life giving, but will guide you and centre you in times of trauma and turbulence.
We do not need to become victims of our circumstances.
We are powerful beings with many gifts and talents to co=create and anchor a new world.
