Looking toward Change

So many highly inspirational paths have been offered to folks in the past few decades. Things have certainly sped up a great deal. Yet we can look at our world and still wonder why we’re not able to pull any real change into our reality. Surely, small changes are always part of life, but what of the massive changes?

As a young child, I was shown a possible future. It held so much promise. Yet here I am in roughly the time frame I had visioned in that beech tree, back in the late 60s and when I look around me, the world I see is not nearly that of the vision. True, one could say that that vision was a child’s imagination and not real. To me it was so real that to this day, 50 years later I’ve not been able to let the vision fade in my memory. It is as clear and as strong as it ever was, imprinted on my mind.

So here I sit in a situation that brings with it the question of how can I change this world (or at least my experience of it) to match the vision, the promise that kept me going for so many years? The answer to this question may not be the final one, but certainly feels like it is one that is worth sharing here. It is perhaps just a stepping stone along the way. It turns out, I feel I had gotten it all wrong. We experience change daily, in a small measure. The larger structures of our lives are usually the same or very similar from day to day. Try as I might, I have not been able to draw any large scale major change into my life. The reason being from what I can see is that it’s not possible to change the current reality in major ways by drawing in new things. Wait what? – Yes, because there is not one reality we experience and into which we draw changes.

Instead, we exist embodied in a myriad of realities (timelines) and our consciousness will experience the one we focus on. That changes the game for me. The playing field, the movement as it were is not with the changes that need to join a reality, but my conscious focus that can look upon different things and join different already existing realities and live those instead of the one that wasn’t preferred. Instead of trying to coax largely unmoveable “things” into a different space, I can simply go where I want to go. That, dear friends, is how we learn to travel consciously through time and space.

Let’s get practical – the premise of that which we focus on is what we experience is actually correct. The idea that we draw what we focus on into our lives (in that one set playground/reality) is however flawed. To correct this, imagine that your consciousness decides to join a different reality and focus on that reality (or simply on how you’d feel if you were in that reality) in order to join it. Take this information in perhaps for a while and feel your way through this different way of imagining the shift. If it feels good and resonates with you, then have at it – join different realities (timelines) as you see fit, because you’ve already done this (are doing it) numerous times a day, literally every time you make a choice. It’s not something unnatural and new, it’s actually something that we all know how to do, but to navigate it and exercise this free will consciously is the “new” part for many.

Sudden big jumps into completely different experiences will be more difficult to do, as our minds are a bit sluggish and there can be quite a bit of fear of “going crazy” involved when suddenly a lifetime of memories start shifting and although you still remember the “original” memories of your childhood/your past, they begin to fade as the new memories of the new timeline begin to replace them. It’s certainly not for the faint hearted, but nobody is pushing you to start with huge jumps. I recommend to start simply by normalizing the idea of shifting realities deliberately and seeing each choice you make as such a shift,  so that it becomes normal for your mind that this is what you are doing. Then once this has become a normal conscious everyday thing, you can attempt to seek timelines in which certain experiences are already unfolding more deliberately. Join your body there and experience with greater freedom that which you wish to experience. Welcome to exploring and pioneering in the 5th Dimension!

Victim of Circumstance (part 3)

Hello again – how is it going with your personal “I am….” statement? Results may be instant or it may take a while before you will see changes in your outlook, changes in how you feel when you repeat this statement, and changes in how others respond to you. It may also be that there are beliefs and things in the way that keep getting “poked” and stirred up with this statement of intention. That’s normal and only a sign that it’s indeed “working”. These statements will bring energetic changes, especially when the focus is held for half an hour or longer on feeling the way you decided you want to feel from here on out.

So what do we do when say a day starts out resonably well, the practice gets more firm, the intention becomes more habitual, and Bam! – something pops up. It may be as simple as a seeming dip into old thought patterns combined with the associated well known emotional states. When that happens, I’m almost certain it will trigger that intricately ingrained reaction of fighting the contrast away, sometimes by desperately trying to hang on to the new statments – or giving up altogether declaring that these “affirmation things” (I prefer to call them deliberate intentions) are just not your cup of tea. Either way is fine. Both ways will cause you to be sucked back into the old groove that is trying to show up so that you could work through it. Over time, you will begin to recognize these contrasts for what they are. Your response is where the freedom to choose comes in. I suggest to find back to step 1. Embrace whatever it is that is bugging you – acceptance is the key, the beginning of the lowering of resistance. Accept that this pattern has shown up. Then when the relief sets in through acceptance, choose the feeling which you have already determined you want to feel. If you want proof that this really works, I suggest you just don’t give up. This is where the stubbornness I mentioned previously comes in for real! – I add to the acceptance a bit of appreciation that my “I am”- intention has actually had a result. Not the one I thought I’d have, but surely it has brought me on the path of least resistance (get the gist?) to where I need to be so that my intention can become more and more engrained.

I can’t foresee all the potential patterns of previous resistance that could appear. I bet you will find that if they appear on your journey, they are often quite familiar, well trained beliefs. Sometimes however, they are wonderful gifts in form of aha-moments. Epiphanies of the less fluffy kind, that do however bring beautiful clarity as to why you have been experiencing the contrasts the way you did. Anyway – the steps are easy, the process is ongoing, the path is individual and you’re already on it!

When in doubt, step 1 – Acceptance. 

When comfortable there, step 2 – Get clear on how you want to feel instead

When clear, step 3 – Craft your very own “I am …………”  as if it were already so

When stuff pops up that makes you feel bad, go back to step 1,

Then rinse and repeat for as long as it takes until this sequence becomes your new way of reacting to contrast. Toss in the occasional appreciation that there is contrast in the first place and that you have an emotional feedback that tells you when things are “on” or “off” for you and there you have the formula for coming out of any contrast that has been bothering you. With that personal training, you will no doubt leave states of victimhood behind – an experience to be gratful for, as it showed you what you want instead. Not only will you experience less and less feelings of being a victim, you will see more and more circumstances reflect your new chosen feeling. Pay attention to these new manifestations, and remember, the circumstances follow your energy, they are always a reflection.

I wish everyone attempting this good luck, persistence, and the understanding that with your deliberate thoughts combined with the emotional feedback, you will always have a way “out”. You may most definitely not be able to avoid contrast altogether, for that is not what this is for. It’s about knowing how to shift your own energy and experience after you gained the clarity of your preference that was born from the contrast in the first place. It’s always going to be a bit of to and fro …

And remember…… YOU are the creator of your reality!

Totality

When the heart has opened up to embrace all of humanity and unconditional love (source energy) flows unhindered to all of Creation, you will find yourself truly free.
