… 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.

… they make us better.

In fact, those bad times make us stronger, wiser and smarter. They push us to expand beyond our horizons and develop new skill sets. They don’t allow for complacency. They demand transformation.

The bad times are indeed the best times, but unfortunately many people only appreciate the good times. They want things to be easy and laced with rainbows and butterflies. But rainbows and butterflies don’t promote growth, they reward it.

Many of us shut down in the face of bad times. We numb ourselves from having to face the pain. But that only succeeds in keeping us stuck in a numbing void where we never grow.

Transformation is the path forward and although everyone wants to be transformed to some extent, no one wants to go through the pain of the transformational process. It’s never easy and generally requires sitting into the pain until it can be transmuted into higher frequencies.

The next time you want to feel victimized because you are stuck in some bad times, remember that the bad times are actually the best times, they make us stronger, better and wiser. They push us to become the being we are here to become. They push us to see what we are capable of. And the good times? Well, they are just the rewards for having done the work. Game on.

… all around us.

In our world today, we are in the process of a paradigm shift which makes it quite an intense time. The good thing is that we are moving to a much higher level of consciousness (a higher vibration/frequency). The bad thing is that this higher level of consciousness has a tendency to disrupt everything and every system around us that cannot hold the same high frequency. Whatever is discordant around us is now disintegrating right in front of us.

When consciousness lifts, it rattles everyone and everything that is sitting at a lower vibrational rate of consciousness. This is why we have seen so much personal and global chaos this past year. But like anything else, we always have the choice as to what we focus on. If you focus on the drama and fear it/feed it, you will perpetuate more of it in the world, but if you focus on understanding that the drama is just playing out as a consequence of better days to come, you become empowered to make new choices and help to shift the energy.

You get what you think about whether you want it or not. Keep shifting your perspective. Stay aware and empowered to bring more light to the planet but do not feed the chaos. A much brighter world is dawning. Are you ready?

… get ready to write some new rules.

The energy of 2020 is unlike any we have ever experienced. Consciousness has lifted and paradigms have shifted all around us. It’s truly a new age and the dawn of a new way of being in the world. There’s no going back. The earth’s magnetic vibration has lifted and subsequently so has humanity’s.

We are no longer blinded to the endless cycles of matrix programming. We are awakening to our true power and recognizing that we are the ones we have been waiting for. Life isn’t an experience meant to be suffered through; it’s meant to be an exploration into experiencing our true essence — God itself.

In order to take advantage of these new energies, one simply has to believe in themselves and the power they hold to make change. If you believe in the limitations of the past, you will be trapped by them, but if you believe in your ability to create magic, you will be brought to a whole new level of wizardry.

Are you ready to truly shift your life? You can be, do or have anything you want, you just have to be able to have that clear 20/20 vision for yourself. If you can’t see it for yourself, you’ll never have it. Are you ready to play this new game? The rules are yours to write.

… but not mandatory, for growth.

The only constant we have in life is change. We are only here to grow through experiences and to learn who we really are which is aspects of the creator (God).

The nature of reality is change. As long as we are alive on this planet, our lives need to continually expand and evolve and transformation is a critical part of that growth.

Everyone wants to be transformed, but not everyone wants to do the work to transform an aspect of their life. Most prefer to stay stuck and stagnant in a situation that has outlived it’s purpose.

There are 2 ways in which as humans, we can transform. We can transform in a “good” way or a “bad” way. Good and bad are just human labels to describe a process of transformation; they are not realities.

The fact is that we are always in control of how we grow. In the “good” way, we can get out ahead of the curve and recognize that we are feeling stuck/stagnant in our lives and push ourselves outside our comfort zone to make some sort of change.

But many of us tend to evolve and transform in a “bad” way which is awaiting the universe to come from behind us and push us outside our comfort zone via a crisis which undoubtedly pushes us towards transformation. 

Either way, you will transform — either on your timeline or the universe’s. Crisis are critical, but not mandatory. How do you choose to evolve?

… the universe will take it from you.

Not to punish you, but to push you forward.

You can only hold onto what’s not serving you for so long before the universe intervenes and takes it right away from you.

We are only here to learn and grow through the wisdom of experience. So experiences are crucial to our development. If you find yourself feeling stuck, stagnant, and/or holding onto a job or a relationship passed the expiration date, know that the universe will gladly come in to rebalance your scales and force you forward once again.

The only constant in our lives is change. As humans, we naturally shy away from change but it’s our life force. Honor the cycles of change in your life and give what is no longer working up to a new cycle of growth. Holding onto what has you stuck, will keep you there. Letting it go will free you to move forward. When you learn to let go of what is no longer serving you, it opens you up to the rhythm of life where a better future is guaranteed.

… move with it or it’ll take you out.

Life is in constant motion, shifting and changing. As humans, we have to move with those changes, we cannot resist them. Resisting change is akin to back pedaling through our lives.

In life, always remain fluid. Move like the waters, yet be aware when the tide is changing and act accordingly. Your life is not a constant, it ebbs and flows in cycles and the more conscious you are, the better you are at anticipating those shifts in the tide.

Life is about flowing with the currents, observing the energy and respecting the direction in which it wants to move. If the tide is moving in a certain direction, heed it, life is guiding you towards more tranquil waters.

Respect the cycles of your relationships and jobs — nothing stays the same. Learn to identify the changes in the tides so you don’t get stuck somewhere you don’t want to be.

… it’s not a punishment.

But somehow we tend to get lost in the rejection part and forget why a specific situation is happening.

Life is very simple. Anything that is right for you, will find its way to you when it’s time. There’s no need for struggle. Trust in your divine trust. If it’s not happening, it’s not right for you, at least not right now. Step away from it.

You can always trust the universe to filter out the people and opportunities that are not aligned with your higher purpose. Heed the walls that are put in front of you. They are in place to re-route you and prevent you from running off a cliff.

Resistance is purposeful, it’s not a punishment — it’s always leading you somewhere better.

… you won’t have space for it.

Transitions can be disorienting. No one really likes change, especially when it is thrust onto you. But change represents growth and that is the life force that propels us forward in our lives.

The thing about change is that if you don’t clear a space for the newness that you are seeking, you will have no space for it when it arrives.

You have to let go of what you are holding onto in order to accept something new. But we don’t do that, we generally hold onto what isn’t working until it finally drags us to the floor and we unwittingly surrender our grasp.

You have to let go of what isn’t working to create the space for what will. You can’t have both. In times of transition, you have to trust that what doesn’t feel right, is no longer right for you. 

Learn to let your intuition guide you. If it feels good, move in that direction. If it doesn’t feel good, move away from that direction and let it go. Once you let go of what no longer feels right, the universe can replace it with something that IS right.

… and you’ll keep winning.

Focus on your losses, and you’ll keep losing. 

Everything is energy and where you put your focus, you get more of — whether you want it or not.

These are trying times of transition and when you can focus on the positive of your life amidst any perceived negative, you invite the energy of transformation in. Transformation can only exist within the waveform of positive intention. In other words, you can block the next step of your life just as easily as you can walk into it. 

You always have a choice as to how you view your life. Are you going to allow yourself to feel the victim of your circumstances or are you going to encourage yourself to continue building upon your successes (however small you think they are) and transforming yourself anew — stronger, greater and wiser?

If the story you are telling yourself isn’t working, try telling another one — a greater one. Where do you want your life to go? What is it you want to create? The secret is in understanding that focusing on where you are, keeps you there, but focusing on where you want to be, brings you there. When you’re ready to be a winner in the story of your life, your life will truly become the winning life you’ve dreamed of.
