… or have you become comfortably numb? 

There’s a difference.

Life is hard, it’s true, but finding comfort in this discomfort is key. True comfort can be found via conscious transformation of suffering. Do you allow yourself to wallow in self-pity and victim consciousness or do you move through the pain and back into higher mastery states of joy, gratitude and happiness?

Many of us get stuck in the pain and in order to cope, we shut down any sense of feeling. We numb ourselves from feeling the pain via alcohol, drugs, food, tv, social media, sex, etc… This is not true comfort, it is a coping mechanism disguised as comfort, otherwise known as the “comfortably numb zone.”

Comfort is the pure mastery of joy, while being comfortably numb is the epitome of sabotage and distraction. One shuts you down, while the other moves you through your consciousness evolution. Be careful not to mistake one for the other.

True comfort is available for anyone who is ready to master their pain — anyone who is ready to face their shadows and move beyond them. Once you learn to face all of it, you can override it and finally begin to heal.

Are you comfortable facing your life or are you more comfortably numbing the pain? There is a difference. One road leads to consciousness mastery and the other leads to an addictive spiral. Where do you find yourself?

… are opposite sides of the same coin.

These are difficult times where it’s very easy to fall into fear and allow it to destroy us. But that doesn’t serve anyone. We’re not here to be enslaved by our fears; we are here to champion our dreams.

It helps to know that humans exist in a state of duality where we need to experience both positive and negative polarity in order to find our way in life. There are only 2 directions — light/love and dark/fear and fear has a purpose, it exists as a necessary state of resistance meant to drive us back towards the higher frequency of love. In other words, fear is a vibrational default that keeps us from collapsing into a sinkhole. We come up to it, experience it and we’re meant to re-direct ourselves away from it and back into the light.

But many of us get caught in that sinkhole and collapse into a pit of darkness because we think we have no other choice. But there is always a choice. We can either choose to feed the fear and become worriers or we can choose to run towards love and become warriors.

Warriors ascend in consciousness whereas worriers descend into fear.

Warriors don’t give up whereas worriers give in to the fear, pressure and pain.

Warriors focus on realizing their dreams whereas worriers let their greatest fears run their life.

Warriors find a way to conquer any obstacle in their way whereas worriers give their power over at the first sign of distress. 

Warriors don’t take no for an answer whereas worriers accept less than they deserve.

Warriors find a way to make their lives better whereas worriers decide it can never get better.

In life, it never matters what happens to you, all that matters is what you do with it. Are you a warrior or a worrier? Life never gets better as a worrier, it only gets worse. Sadness and despair can only beget more of the same. Where are you going in life? Warriors go places whereas worriers can only go into a downward spiral. No more excuses, it’s time to step into the role of warrior. The rest of your life depends on it.

… 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.

… 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.

… doesn’t keep you safe.

It only provides you with a false sense of security.

It’s much easier for us to play in the superficial realm of life and never go deeper. We skim the surface of our consciousness and get stuck in the matrix playing out materiality and confusing it with progress.

Prioritizing material possessions as a symbol of success only keeps the true rewards of a “life well-lived” hidden from sight. The fact is that we are here to grow and evolve our souls, not get sucked into the vortex of materiality. The focus on material possessions as a means of seeking fulfillment only keeps us bound and trapped in lower karmic programming. It makes us a slave to our possessions. It doesn’t represent a true sense of abundance, which only comes from within, never outside you.

The truth is the deeper you go in your evolution, the darker it can get. Sometimes it’s hard to see the bottom. It doesn’t mean you’re going to drown; it only means there are shadows lurking beneath you that may need to be brought to the surface before you can get to the next level. Most people fear those depths. They fear going into that darkness because it’s painful to transmute. They prefer to stay in the shallow end where they feel safer. But the shallow end doesn’t keep you safe. It only makes the deep-end scarier.

At one point in our lives, we find ourself adrift in the deep-end without a raft. But once we are there and we have brought up to the surface our shadows, we find a serenity in the deep-end that we never knew possible. Fulfillment lies in the deep-end of life. Living in the shallow never gets you to the depths of yourself. You have to be willing to lose everything in order to gain more than you could have ever imagined. It’s called the dark night of the soul. That is the secret to personal fulfillment; it’s lies in the deep-end. How deep are you willing to go to find yourself?

… you have to let them grow.

In life, expansion is key. You can’t get to the next level without moving through the level you’re in.

Progress in life is about embracing a feed forward system, not backwards. So in essence, you have to grow out of something, not hide from it. It has to be surmounted.

Expanding out of something means you have managed to rise above it and integrate its wisdom. It’s a feed forward of intelligent learning and it builds off the very problem you’ve struggled with.

Escaping your problems is akin to constricting and giving up, while allowing the problem to still exist. It may provide you with a momentary sense of relief, but since there’s been no expansion, the problem always comes back larger than life.

Expansion raises your vibration and escapism lowers it. You can’t get to a higher level by adopting a lower level strategy.

Problems cannot be escaped, they have to be expanded through. Expansion (transformation) is a higher vibrational game. It requires that you face the problem head on, surmount it, and use it as a springboard into higher levels of consciousness. Are you ready for expansion?
