Are You Sure It Isn’t Better The Devil You Know?

During the winter months I become somewhat reclusive, seeming to believe that venturing out after dark might have me turning into a pumpkin, but being a spring baby, when the night’s start to get lighter and the colourful spring bulbs come out to say hello, I assume it’s safe to venture out into the world again, alive with fresh spirit and a new sense of curiosity. It doesn’t come without reservation though, there’s always a nagging voice whispering “Are you sure it isn’t better the devil you know?”

Having gone off to the ballet last night to soak up something beautiful and be inspired by the powerful, graceful movement, I was reminded how very often action precedes motivation and not the other way around and how in order to illicit change you must act even if you are unsure whether the new order will outshine the old way.

Motivation is in my opinion a product of momentum: once you start you’re on a roll and its easier to keep going, keep doing whatever is necessary to break free of old familiar habits that are not necessarily comfortable, after all why would we use the term “better the devil you know” if it was pleasant or fulfilling. Remaining where you are or were is detrimental to growth, be it a job that doesn’t challenge you, a relationship that has run its course or become less than satisfactory, or anything that you now do simply as habit rather than as a conscious act of self-expression. But it isn’t easy taking that first step back into alignment with the essence of regeneration once you stop.

Life undulates. We go through seasons of our own, inspired powerful motion, slows to complete rest and back again on a fairly regular basis and when we take advantage of the divine prompting and opportunities we can optimize these swings to form a balanced and beautiful life… just like ballet: leaps and turns interspersed with perfect poise.

In The Wholly Grail, Principle 2: I AM Detached is all about Divine timing and being present to what is to optimise the current energy stream creating a balanced, joyful life. It helps you to disentangle yourself from potential outcomes and as yet unwritten consequences, previous experiences and repeating history, so that your whole being is unified in the now to push through inertia to grand jete onto the next act of your own glorious ballet.

If you’re feeling stuck and unable rise to the gentle nudges of the universe telling you that there is so much more to this recital than the current continuous turn, then call upon Archangel Metatron to get you organised and productive. In the angel world he is your celestial mentor and personal trainer. Expect things to speed up when he’s around and clarity to arrive followed quickly by the obvious next right action. Metatron makes procrastination a dirty word and enthusiasm a given.

Here’s wishing you a delicious and deliberate Monday!
