In moments of inner struggle, conceptualize the highest truth related to the subject you are able and focus all of your attention on it.
Often, in times of inner turmoil we place our focus on altering or distracting ourselves from the unpleasant emotion itself. Unfortunately, the experience is the effect of a prior cause and not the root cause of the experience itself.
The root cause is a thought or concept we are holding as truth in our inner world that is discordant or a catalyst or seed for suffering.
By shifting your mind's focus to a higher truth you essentially lure your human to focus on a thought that generates a much more positive experience.
The machine of existence is powered, in part, by our intentionalized expectations.
We don’t get what we ask for, we don’t get what we want, we aren’t even guaranteed to get what we work tirelessly for - we get what we expect.
Nestled deep inside our human’s Ego structure is an anticipatory fear of how much it will hurt if we really let ourselves desire something…and it doesn’t manifest. Understandable as this fear is, its existence in our inner worlds has an incredibly limiting effect.
If your objective is to continually find and follow your highest you will invariably find yourself needing to overcome this challenge. So why not start now?
Are there areas you are currently keeping yourself from truly desiring something because you fear it would hurt too much if it didn’t happen?
God doesn’t elbow angels and say “watch this, I love it when they REALLY let themselves want something and then I don’t give it to them…” If you believe that your prime calling is to ceaselessly pursue the highest expression of the individual you incarnated to be then you must also believe that your highest, most deeply rooted and sacred desires were given to you as part of that expression.
That was a really long sentence without a lot of punctuation that boils down to this: you have been given your deepest desires to have them fulfilled.
Manifestation is a co-creative partnership between us and the Universe (if you don’t believe me try and control every single detail of your life and let me know how it works out lol). Implied in that partnership is our need to trust that our partner will come through for us - especially on the big things.
So where are you holding out from yourself? And what would happen if you allowed yourself to truly desire partnership where you are met on a soul level? Or a way to support yourself financialy that was truly fulfilling and enjoyable? Or…?
I believe that the most mundane things in life are just as holy as the most powerful mystical experiences.
