… keeps you locked in a nightmare.

Dancing with fear is always a choice. Fearful thoughts lock you into a lower vibrational state; they elicit negative emotions which keep you trapped and looping in a pain-induced reality. But that’s not the way we’re meant to live. Once we understand the role of our feelings, we can begin to master our true alignment.

Feelings are key to mastering fear.

Feelings are a vibrational gauge as to the level of your consciousness you are holding and how you feel, determines how in-phase or out-of-phase you are to your true self. So, if you are feeling fearful, you are out of alignment with your highest potential.

It’s all about perspective. You are always in control of your own alignment. So learn to take control over your fear. Don’t let yourself fall into fear, change the way you feel about it.

Instead of fearing a doomed potential, why not allow yourself to see it as a “Jedi-warrior training? “I am not afraid of this fear, I am here to master it.” To master anything you must learn to dance with it properly. Don’t look to run from your fears, look at them as opportunities to master your emotions.

Shifting out of a fearful state is as easy as finding a more positive feeling that you can feel good about. You are learning to dance a better dance with fear; one where you are the one leading. Controlling your feelings can help to control your emotions and give you control over that which you fear.

… is in learning to get up faster.

We are all continually on a path of strength training and agility training because the fall is inevitable. It’s an integral part of how we humans learn and become better.

The secret to mastering the art of the fall, is to become highly agile and flexible so that when we do fall, we can move through the impact much more quickly and it doesn’t take us out.

In other words…

The harder you are on yourself, the harder it will be to come back from the fall.

The easier you can be on yourself, the more easefully you will come back from the fall.

Punishing or blaming yourself for your mistakes hardens you and locks you into a no-win position; whereas identifying the mistakes and using them as a benchmark for progress opens you up to mastery.

Learn to roll with the punches. If you are too rigid, those punches will knock you out. But if you’re able to ease up on your ego to get the lesson and get out, your agility/humility will catapult you forward.

No one likes to fall, but when you do so, learn to get up faster. Move through the curriculum of life’s lessons and stand strong so no one and nothing can ever push you over again.

… you can see where you are. 

When you are surrounded by others, your view is blocked. 

I used to think I knew who I was and how I fit into the whole when I lived in NYC, but in reality, I couldn’t see anything. 

When you are alone, you have clear sight. But when you are surrounded by others, your view becomes muddied. It’s muddied because you only see yourself as a reflection of someone else. You do not have true clarity. True clarity only comes when you only see you. Anyone else around you is just a distraction from you knowing yourself. 

Most of us never know who we truly are. We are too busy competing with others around us (on social media) trying to prove to ourselves that we are better than them. But when you are constantly comparing yourself to those around you, you lose a bit of yourself. You turn that energy over to others and no longer have access to it. You give them your power. And why would you do that? Why would you not keep the integrity of your own power?

People can become distractions, albeit beautiful distractions, to us finding our way in the world. If you truly want to know yourself, step away from the crowd. You are not them. You will just get swallowed up and lost in that crowd.

Being alone is a chance to re-align yourself to who you truly are. When you no longer have the distractions of others, you can better see where you are headed.

… there are only different experiences.

Bet you didn’t know that? 

Many of us labor over making decisions for fear of making a mistake. But that’s the problem. We think it’s safer to sit it out and wait for clarity, but it’s not. Hesitation breeds stagnancy and decision breeds flow. So, it almost doesn’t matter what decisions you make, it just matters that you make them and continue to move through your life.

There are no guarantees in life, there are only varied experiences. You are meant to flow through a series of experiences and garner the wisdom from them. Those experiences are what make you who you are. The process of choosing is the process of life and the act of choosing requires a process of flow.

This process of flow requires you to moveMomentum is the key. Once you are in action, the universe can steer you towards the outcome that is aligned for you, but if you sit it out on the bench, you become inert and stuck/stagnant so change can never come in. Everyone needs to flow; if you sit still, you block your progress by blocking the process.

It helps to know that it doesn’t matter what path you choose, all that matters is that you get onto one. Once in motion, the universe can guide you towards your highest timeline. But you must be in motion. The only thing the universe cannot do is pull you up off your bench; it cannot intervene in your free will.

You gotta be in it to win it. It never matters what choices you make, all that matters is that you make choices and move through the game of your life. There are no mistakes, only different experiences. Are you flowing through your life and moving through your experiences or are you blocking your own progress?

… you don’t understand it.

A reaction is an emotional response to some stimuli or trigger. If you become triggered, that trigger is yours. But when we lack consciousness, we immediately blame another for triggering us; we think it’s their fault.

We all come to this planet with certain life lessons (a.k.a. certain buttons to be pressed which help to bring up our issues). It’s your dance partner’s (lover, sibling, friend, boss, etc..) job to push those buttons so that your shadows can surface and you can identify your work and begin processing it.

Getting triggered is a gift if you are awake and conscious. It can be a living hell if you’re projecting it out onto another. If you feel the need to react with heated emotions, you have not allowed yourself to process the trigger properly. You’ve avoided doing the personal process work and conveniently chosen to project your failures onto another.

Are you easily triggered/angered these days? It’s no one else’s fault. There’s nothing to take offense to. The work lies within yourself. Whenever you feel justified in angrily blaming another, recognize that it is YOU who needs to look in the mirror.

If you’re reacting to it, you don’t understand it. Go deeply within yourself and ask yourself why you are so upset? What are you really reacting to?

Where there is consciousness, there can be healing. When you truly understand a comment and where it’s coming from, there’s no need to react to it. There is only space for calm discourse.

… sees through the web of lies.

Earth is a schoolroom. We are here to learn and to have an experience of ourselves in this 3D matrix of illusion. We are not meant to get lost in the illusion.

In this matrix, we are creating our reality with every word, thought and action we take. While in this matrix of illusion, we are searching for the truth of who we are, which becomes difficult when that illusion becomes hijacked with lies and deceit.

The seeker is only here to remember who they are. They seek truth, not just in themselves, but in the world around them. As with every classroom, there are tests along the way. Not everything the seeker experiences will be true to their soul. Discernment becomes a tool of enlightenment. So every good seeker must learn how to question everything. Truth vs. illusion… what is real to me? It only takes one slip up to give your authority over to a false god (gov’t, health authority), or a false prophet (media, corporations) and you can easily lose your way.

The seeker of truth, sees through all the lies. Never give your discernment away to any power outside of you. If you are truly seeking truth, you will never cease asking questions because you will see that the more you know, the more you realize you don’t know anything. If you think you know it all, you will forget to seek the truth and you will accept anyone else’s truth as your own. Keep questioning your reality until it makes sense. You are the one responsible for the truth you hold, no one else.

… is a defense mechanism of the EGO.

It’s a highly unconscious method of deflecting attention away from one’s own shadow work. It protects a fragile ego by deflecting attention away from the person who has the work to do and projecting it onto the one who presumably “offended them.” It’s a convenient distraction strategy, “look over there, not here.”

It’s much easier to blame someone else than it is to look in the mirror. You see, we always dislike in others what we unconsciously dislike about ourselves. It’s human nature.

When you know who you are, there is nothing to take offense to and no one who can ever offend you. But when your identity is tied to an ideology, your identity construct becomes weakened and easily hijacked.

Nothing anyone says or does has anything to do with you unless you make it about you. Being offended is a cop out; it shows people you are more interested in projecting blame than accepting responsibility for your own behavior which may or may not be unrelated.

Instead of being offended by others, why not put that energy into maintaining a healthy sense of self? When you know who you are, no one can ever challenge you. And if we all knew who we were, we wouldn’t spend anymore time projecting blame unto others, but would spend it in harmony with them.

… but defaults to comfort.

It is in our nature as a soul to evolve, to become better, to push ourselves beyond our comfort zones into a field of infinite potential.

When we are healthy and not operating under extreme social trauma, we can think clearly and rationally and it allows for our evolution to higher states of consciousness. At our highest levels and in the absence of a collective psychosis, our capacities to transcend pain are efficient and abundant. But when we fall prey to a social trauma program, we trade our greatness for security. We give up on our happiness and we accept less than what we deserve. When we do this, we no longer walk the path of awakening consciousness, but fall blissfully back asleep, contented to allow a control system to ease our pain, quell our fears and give us “safety” restrictions which we happily accept in return for our freedoms.

This is not the path of humanity. This is not the path of the soul. Humanity is neither meant to control itself or be controlled. Humanity is sovereign. Every soul upon this planet has free will which can never be denied. And in turn, that free will has karmic repercussions. The choices you make and the actions you take will always return to you, be it in this life or the next.

As humanity, we must remember we are magical. We can be, do or have anything we want. We are aspects of pure light in a human body. What will we do with that? Will we stand up and believe in our power and honor our light OR will we give in to a control dynamic that tells us what we need to do in order to be healthy, happy or accepted as part of society?

Who should we trust? Ourselves or some other power? Humanity is meant to expand in it’s consciousness and evolve. Our magic is always waiting to be explored outside our comfort zone and it is only when we are pushed beyond our threshold of capacity that we can truly step into our own greatness. We never become great by giving into a control system that tells us how to operate. Don’t trade your eternal light for a glimmer of hope. It will never last. Once we stop defaulting to comfort and security, we can truly start living our best lives.

… don’t back away from them.

Why doesn’t anyone ever teach us that in kindergarten? It’s really a quantum computation. If you lean into a pressurized field, you can puncture that field and move through it. But no one ever teaches us that. The energy fields that surround us create our reality and the ways in which we manipulate those fields determine the outcomes we receive. 
.
If you stand up to the difficulties, you will transmute them into the next level of progress. But if you step back from them (so they don’t hurt as much), you will encourage resistance amongst the difficulties and therefore things will get progressively more challenging for you. 
.
It’s like being in a pool. If you’re going down, it’s better to go ALL THE WAY DOWN and HIT ROCK BOTTOM because when you do, you spring off of it and come up to the light of day much quicker. But if you don’t want to hit rock bottom, and try to avoid it, you will be hanging around the dark murky depths of the pool for a very long time living a much darker reality. Which do you prefer? 
.
The secret to life is to lean into the challenges, not step back from them. We’re here to move through levels of HUMAN PROGRESS and the more levels you face, the more you will get through and the higher your rewards. Ready to play?

… you have to go through it.

But no one wants to go through pain to transcend it. As humans, we prefer to bypass the pain and take the easy way out. Ironically though, the easy way out in life is never easier; it’s actually much harder. It may feel easier at the onset, but it becomes far more complex and painful as time goes on.

There is no way to transcend something painful without fully going into it. You have to get into the belly of the beast in order to invert it. Many who do not want to hit rock bottom will linger in the shadows of the dark end of the pool for decades, trying to avoid their fate. The brave of us know that to come back up into the light, we have to first bottom out; we have to hit rock bottom so we can spring off of it and rise to the surface even faster.

As humans, we are all here to transcend our lives, not collapse into them. But we will never transcend what we will not allow ourselves to face and work through. Your pain is fuel for transformation. You cannot sit on the sidelines of your life and evolve. Transcendence doesn’t work that way.

Running from the storms of your life doesn’t heal you. Learning to dance in the rain is the only way to push through those storms and transform the experience. It’s a metaphor for life… in order to transcend the storm, you have to go through it, and know that just beyond the pain and drama, through it to the other side, the sun is always shining and waiting to embrace you. It can be no other way.
