Slippery Cheeks

Many of us feel this way every once in a while … and it’s ok.

Tears are the souls way of expressing pain or expressing joy. Tears are a sign that you are alive, that you feel and that something inside of you must come out to culminate an emotion.

If you feel a memory slipping out of your head and down your cheek, it’s okay. Let it.

Then take a deep breath and continue moving forward

Love,
Sheri

Life Experiences

Not many are able to buck a current, nobody is really supposed to buck a current. All people you interact with are cooperative components in your reality behaving the way your current dictates – the type of current you are offering can be witnessed in your life experiences… if you don’t like it, just change the current by choosing that which you actually prefer … make that choice over and over again until it becomes a new belief, a new current; until it can be seen played out in different life experiences.

Working Hard

To this day, humanity holds on to the belief held by mass consciousness that promotes good work ethics. The belief holds steadfast, that only through hard work, there will be success. This belief permeates everything, even spiritual development. How often have you heard someone say: “I’m working hard on my alignment” – “if I work a bit harder at meditating, I’ll get there”…the list is endless.

The belief that there is hard work involved before we get to see results is the very thing that is experienced. In that belief structure, it is clear that only through hard work, the experience of the desired result is available. Unless you work hard, you won’t be as successful as those who do work hard, so the belief continues, and tosses out the bait of competition for those who wish to take it.

What I see when I hear the words “hard work” (yes, even when they creep into my own vocabulary from time to time) is this: We ARE the universal forces that we believe are outside of us to deliver us the realities that we experience. We all are part of that universal energy that shapes itself into everything we choose to believe. If we believe in the myth of hard work, there we have it – without hard work, no success. If we believe however in the omnipotent nature of pure positive energy, which is exactly that which we are at our core, then the idea of working hard becomes rather ridiculous (to me anyway). Really? the universe, this omnipotent force that has also been entitled “God” has to work hard ? – I don’t believe this for once second. What I do believe and with that pitch my human nature against the current of mass consciousness,is this: we are here to play, to frolic, to enjoy and to create. It’s play people! It’s nowhere near hard work, unless we decide to explore that old belief structure some more (and to do that is absolutely allowed).

Personally, I pick play over work any old day – passionate play that is. Aligned play and inspired action. With that attitude and belief, I accomplish so much more, than when I dip a toe back into the currents of old that sometimes pipe up and say: what ? you haven’t worked yet today? – When that happens, I laugh and recognize the “should” in my inner dialogue and wait until that moment passes until I find alignment, joy, and my playful nature again which is always just waiting to explore, do, accomplish, create, and enjoy – every day anew.

The Perfect Unfolding

 

Even if you find yourself in an experience that pushes against everything that you previously believed to be true for you, know at all times, that source has your back and everything is the perfect unfolding of your very own path.

Full Acceptance of What Is

It is a step outside the perception of linearity to fully accept and appreciate the current experience of now. By gaining the perspective that this current now experience is as much a valid and perfect creation of your reality as any of your many experiences, you will be able to treasure it much easier and cherish it as much as the next one that will flow into your experience as your new manifestation. The current now deserves the honor, respect and recognition of being the birthplace of the new now and all subsequent nows.

Immense Joy

If we align enough with source frequency (and the degree of alignment is communicated to us by how good we feel) we begin seeing the world and all experiences through the eyes of source. From that point of perspective, even the greatest follies, the most atrocious experiences, along with all the wonderful things, begin to look different. Source sees the immense creativity that goes into creating limitations as well as expansions. It sees the incredible amount of expressed diversity that goes into each and every creation and clearly forgoes any judgment, but instead keeps a steady focus on taking immense joy in the many creative processes that can be witnessed and experienced all day, every day.

Doing What I Love

Isn’t it so, that at least once or twice a day, we have to do something we don’t love doing? There are things that just need to get done. We have been conditioned that that’s what life is all about, gritting your teeth and doing that which has to be done.

That premise has held true for me for way too long. For a very long time, I didn’t even know what I would love doing. I’m not only speaking of vacation or free time events and activities, but also professionally. I add the word “profession” to the mix and feel the bitter juices flow. There is no profession that allows me to do that which I love doing – all day long. That has to do with my nature. I don’t like repetition and I don’t like doing the same thing for a prolonged amount of time. I like diversity, ever changing things. I like this and that and that and that other thing too. I want it all. It took many years of searching to find that which I love doing most and turn it into a “profession”. Turned out that the moment it became a profession that was marketable, it took something out of the mix and it almost turned sour for me. I’ve pondered on what it would take to make a living with that “profession” of mine and to this day, I can’t say I’ve been successful. There have to be other sources of income for me, in order to keep doing that which I love.

I’ve taken it a step further. Now, I’m disengaging from the word “profession” and what it means to me altogether and I’m just simply doing what I love. As often as I can manage. I have stopped worrying whether it would eventually pay my bills. I have stopped worrying whether I would ever gain professional status or anything of the sort. It has become quite simple and with a renewed gusto, I simply do what I love and if there is money flowing my way or any other ways of balancing out the giving and taking aspects of the exchange, I gracefully accept. Only now does it feel like I’m in the flow of abundance. Any and all thoughts on “how to make money” have been replaced with “I will always be provided with what I need”. The worry factor has never been this low!

I understand that doing what I love seems like a privilege. It is perhaps a hard earned privilege. Most certainly, I feel, it’s natural. Why would I incarnate to go do something I don’t love ? That makes absolutely no sense to me. I understand that financially, certain bases have to be covered. So if a “mainstream” job that isn’t so lovely needs to be held, I’m all for common sense (for a time). However, I also feel that it is very important to nourish the soul by at least spending some time each day doing what I love. It is something that we can all do at least 10 minutes of doing something we love. Until that becomes a habit. I feel that we need to re-establish the flow of that as best as we can in order to make it a reality. I feel we owe it to ourselves to spend at least some time doing that which we love doing hopefully without judgment of ourselves or worse yet, guilt. Just because! Doing what we love is not just a privilege, it is our birth right and I think it’s high time we claim it.

The New Normal

Lately I’ve had opportunity to ponder what it means to be normal. Mind you, I have not the faintest idea what being normal really entails or how it feels. Sure, I know what the word normal means, or how it is understood. (normal: conforming to a standard; usual, typical, or expected.) However, although I am practicing outward normal, accepted behaviors mostly, within, there’s always the understanding that it’s more of a survival skill than an actual belief or identity. There are pressures that seem to come from a society which sticks so heavily to “normal” as the standard of how a human being should be, should look, should behave, and how one should think or feel.

I take a good look at history and one thing becomes clear very swiftly. No-one – I really mean absolutely nobody – who has ever made a lasting impact and ended up in our history books has been “normal”. Instead, we have a long list of rogues, revolutionaries, people who dared to be different. People who dared to be extra-ordinary. People who had to put everything on the line to do what they came to do – to bring change, to enrich the world with their art, to enhance our understanding of science etc. The list of not so normal people in our histories is very long. We treasure those people, but mostly they are being revered only after their re-emergence into non-physical (or what normal people call death).

My question burns in my heart is this: Why can we as beings of the same human origin not allow for the joy of diversity? Why do we have to buy into the belief that “normal” is good, desirable, the way to be; when in actuality, it takes someone to defy the norms in order to do or be great. To be normal means to clip your wings, to put into hiding the very traits that make you individual, authentic, and special. To be normal means to be like everyone else and that to me is utterly impossible and frankly a bit boring.

In that light, I step outside of the norm and embrace the extra-ordinary. I love the diversity more than the normal. It is my preference. Fitting into society becomes less of a goal as I fit more and more into my own energy stream of who I really am. This does not mean that I don’t know how to behave in a civilized manner and I think I am actually able to offer a sense of normalcy at times to those around me. Within me, the glory comes from sticking to what and who I am, to fluidly change along with my expanding energies as they grow and change on a daily basis, sometimes even multiple times a day. To allow my understanding today to be one thing and tomorrow yet another, brings me into the flow that nothing needs to be normal, nothing needs to be standard, everything is in flux and everything is always evolving (yes, even normalcy is part of that evolution). When I hit this place where my own normal is this flow, I feel the joy as a response of alignment and I know that I have found a new (personal) normal that will never stagnate, never be static, and it often shifts so fast that it defies the very name of normal.

I let society be as it is, knowing that one day it will embrace the diversity of the many who dare to find their own new normal. In the meantime, if you are interested, give the joy of diversity a shot. Try to see the benefit of all that isn’t normal for a while and see how the old normal pales by comparison. Tempted?
