I've been sitting with how to share these ancient teachings I've been using as a New Earth Pioneer and I finally found a way through an online healing experience that will activate you into a reimagined future. It's already happening with the Pioneers already on the journey!
If you have found yourself at a place in life where it feels like you have an unforged trail before you, you are not alone! Humanity is evolving and that means you and me along with it.
You may find yourself questioning every choice you have made and how you might have chosen differently. Or you might not have a clue what to do with the seemingly apparent obstacles at every turn.
It seems we are all finding ourselves in a life that we have created, but we can't find an authentic purpose or feel like we're living our best lives. This changing world is making it seem daunting, lonely, and stifled in what to do next. We are all reflecting on how we might have chosen differently if we were healed, not afraid, or believed in a different storyline. I'm right there with you!
My own personal journey thus far has taught me that if I am not allowing myself to reflect on what is important, reset my intentions, thoughts, or beliefs and allow myself the space and time to rebirth organically what I wish to change about my life, I'll miss a very important opportunity for personal growth.
REFLECTION: The Mirror Doesn't Lie
Being willing to look in the soul mirror isn't an easy thing to do. However, when we are brave
enough to take a look, the Universe has an uncanny way of placing mirrors directly in our faces so we can learn. We might get triggered by a strange encounter with former trauma or experience a setback that floods us with feelings of failure. The Universe is showing us our stuff. The places that need more love and support or where we might need to work on our interpersonal skills.
Got brooding anger on the backburner that boils over on occasion? The Universe will turn the knob up on that for us when we are ready to take a look. The world is our mirror and our classroom.
In giving myself my own time of reflection, I had to ask myself some important questions.
Am I living authentically? And how do I really know?
I've learned the hard way that if I am not living from my most authentic vibrational frequency, eventually my body will start shouting at me on the physical level. Assessing a 24-hour cycle for those moments where we may feel stifled, frustrated, sad, lonely, or fearful is invaluable to reflecting some serious truths about how we are showing up for ourselves and how much we may ignore, disregard, take advantage of or suppress.
We can get so caught up in the agendas, hidden expectations, and secret desires to fulfill a belief. Oh, these beliefs, how they can mess with our heads! That little relentless nugget of belief is like a backseat driver steering us down little forks in the road to be accepted by our parents, friends, or society. Haven't we all fought these expectations our whole life? What moments in my life were filled with the most joy?
impassioned? Achieving something exciting? Was I surrounded by a lot of people during that joyful moment? Was I restful, creative, impulsive, rebellious when I was in joy?
For me, I realized those key joyful moments were very simple carefree experiences. I had given myself permission to be in joy. The significant moments were significant not because of what I was doing, but rather how I was being within myself.
How can I best use all the lessons, skills, knowledge, and creativity to be in service from the heart with joy?
We are all asking this question right now. All of us! Most of us don't know how to find this answer on our own. I realized it is tricky to get to that glowing, joyful expression when we're still serving an outmoded belief system and listening to that backseat driver.
Fulfilling someone else's expectations can become a belief that runs in the background, making everything we choose to come from a place of inauthenticity. I realized that if I try to offer something from my heart and if that program is there, we can unconsciously choose something that wasn't right for us from the start. Then we wonder why something isn't working out the way we thought.
Trust me, it's subtle. If we are not actively looking for this insidious program we will miss it.
These kinds of lurking beliefs, waiting to subterfuge our best life, deserve our inner reflections.
If there is an outmoded belief system that doesn't serve the natural expression of our soul, it's likened to unraveling a ball of knotted yarn. We have to slow down, look closely, and mindfully unravel each little knot that has us bound.
Each entanglement requires a level of presence if we are to unravel anything.
We are all entangled in these old programs that somehow aren't working anymore. I bet you've even asked yourself questions about quitting your job, leaving your relationship, realizing you want to be more creative, or noticing that what once worked before isn't working now. All of these thoughts are those whispers guiding us to a New Earth. A new way to show up for ourselves, each other, and this planet.
RESET: A Button to Change the Course of Your Life
After reflecting on these outmoded programs running behind the scenes I needed to hit a reset button. What does that look like?
To me, hitting a reset means stopping. Stop. Just stop. Stop creating endless tasks of busyness so we can tune out those whispers asking us to stop. Even if it's just for a day. Stop. Get still. Lay there. Eat slowly. Journal. Watch a sunset. Stare out a window. Sleep. Take a walk with the intention of noticing everything on the walk. The point is to let that frenetic mind of ours settle, so we can see to the bottom of what is preventing us from being in joy. The point is to stop doing so you can feel into being. Being allows those 'ah-ha!' moments to percolate into our life when we least expect it. If we are going too fast, though, we'll miss it.
That hamster wheel called modern life subscribes to the fulfillment of an outmoded belief.
Most of us don't feel comfortable getting off the wheel unless we know exactly why we'd get off. We think that we need to keep doing what we are doing so we achieve some moniker of success, prestige, validation, or approval. Round and round we go, never stopping to get a good look in the mirror. at what really matters for our soul experience in this body, in this lifetime. Can you see how this doesn't work?
That zest and inspiration we want to feel in this life can only come when we give ourselves permission to stop running on the hamster wheel, get off, get our legs landed, and see where they take us.
And you don't need to be perfect and have it all figured out before you do it either. The key is giving ourselves permission. No one is going to give that to us. Only we can decide.
So, I did. I took a giant reset to see what was next for my life. I didn't seek it, it came...and boy oh boy...did something amazing rebirth from giving myself the space to let it come forth.
REBIRTH: Letting Your Old Self Die
Whenever there is a rebirth coming into the form there is simultaneously a death. A woman giving birth simultaneously puts to death an aspect of herself to become a mother. The same is true in the rebirth of our life journey. There are facets to ourselves that will die away as we bring to life a new way of showing up.
You've likely experienced a rebirth at some point in your life that signified the starting of a new chapter. Something died in place of a new experience or life direction. We will likely transition out of friendships, familiarity, creature comforts, or a sense of security for that different life. If we are clinging to an old identity with fear of disappointing others or fear of failure then we are in for a painfully long birth.
I'm in the middle of a rebirth right now! My reflection and reset are bringing clarity. I'm allowing new ideas, dreams, and creative expressions to percolate in, around, and through me. I'm feeling into what feels the most joyful. And I'm not trying to make it be something, hurry it, or question. I'm not trying to make a plan or future project into outcomes. Those are all attachments that will eventually create suffering. I am, however, feeling into every idea, daydream, and moment of excitement for breadcrumbs of information to keep revealing more truths.
I'm hopeful about the new offerings that are coming through me. I'm certain they are going to be a more authentic expression for me. My mantra...I am abundantly compensated for being me :)
Those are the intentions I am setting. Without attachment to status, identity, or others' expectations. That isn't an easy thing for people-pleasers like myself, and it isn't an easy thing to trust when we still have to put a roof over our heads. Yet, those moments when I've felt bound in a knot, somehow, often miraculously, unravel when I lovingly gave them my full presence. We don't need to know what every step will look like, but rather trust that our individual job is to get right with ourselves and the rest will fall into place.
You've likely realized that the world is changing at a rapid pace. You don't have to stay on the hamster wheel if you don't want to. Once you step off, you'll find a whole New Earth is waiting to be reimagined with you to create a purposeful, authentic, empowered life.
