Release The Butterfly

We humans are generally a ceremonial bunch, we like to mark occasions don’t we? Just think of all the “Days” we honour on the calendar: birthdays, high days, holidays, bank holidays, national days, international days… we mark open days, launch days, and we mark closing days… but they are all just days really.

On Saturday I posted an oracle reading that foretold of a birth, a new beginning that could take any shape or form and its to those new beginnings that we tend to latch on a significant day, like: “I’ll wait until New Year to make that change” for example.

Yesterday, a fairly insignificant day as far as I’m aware, certainly in my calendar anyway, was a day of significant change for me. No pomp and circumstance, no ceremony, no launch party, just me and the angels working together to bring about a brand new beginning for me… and I haven’t stopped smiling since yesterday morning. My new start was with regards to a healthier way of being in every area of my life: mind, body and soul working in unison to find the joy in every action. I should have known earlier in the week that this transition was imminent when a giant and very beautiful butterfly decided to take over the house and give me the dilemma of how to help it escape with minimum drama or damage… then yesterday I became the butterfly after spending the morning in meditation, fully connected to Source and receiving a vision of how it could be if I freed myself from everything that held me back but with minimum drama. I didn’t plan my own transformation, God did. I didn’t “launch” the new me or the new way, I was just spontaneously born anew from a new perspective and a new direction, my job now is to simply follow His lead moment to moment to sustain joy.

After taking last week off from posting, I’d like to say I took the week off altogether but actually it was my busiest week in a long time, I noticed that, having room for me was as simple as having room for God. Meditation is the single most healing, revealing, restoring action you can take in your journey toward creating the life you want… drop the drama today and release the butterfly within, a new you is possible in any moment of any day. Don’t wait for an occasion to start living the life you always dreamed of… now’s good.

Principles 1 & 2 in action.

Trawl For Truth

Most of what you see before you today is a product of what you were thinking yesterday. The past has a powerful grip on your current state of being because it is in evidence all around you.

Have you reached a point in your life where you feel you can no longer continue along the same lines as before? Coming to deeply understand that the balance in your situation is heavily stacked towards apparent obligation rather than towards living, loving, giving, feeling, being free, is a ¬†key moment in your timeline at which point you have the opportunity to switch from living life unconsciously to becoming wide awake, and now all you have to do ask “why?” Why do I do that? Is it because it’s what I’ve always done? Is it because someone told me I had to? Is it simply that I haven’t yet imagined a new way to be yet?

Personal history can be your greatest teacher or you can be its prisoner but the choice is entirely yours. If you can stop for just 5 minutes today and think: ” What would I be doing now if I had a choice and there were no limitations to my experience?” Whatever comes to mind, trawl for truth… truth feels right, it doesn’t jar against your emotional centre, it brings a smile, a feeling of joy from your inner core. Sit with this vision of your truth for just a few minutes, write it down, find a picture or representation of it and begin to grow the image in your mind and in your journal or on a dream board over time…

Once this image of what you really would like to do, be, feel and have has solidified in your mind and you can easily see it each day, go back to the question about your current state: “why?”

One subtle change today can be the inaugural step towards a different reality for tomorrow… make a change.

Demolishing The Pillars

I ran and I ran and I ran as fast as I could, as far as I could and when I stopped running I was right there where I stood.

No matter how far and how fast you run, when you are done running you will find that you couldn’t escape from yourself, from your thoughts, your memories, your faulty precepts and from your attitude about your life… so why do so many insist on running?

A fresh start isn’t such a bad thing of course, a new set of scenery and a chance to reinvent yourself without the resistance of environmental history and the people that make assumptions based on your past performance would absolutely have benefits but what’s to stop you from creating the same life in your new found location? What’s to stop you making the same mistakes over and over again?

Before you start making drastic changes to your external situation by demolishing the pillars of security you’ve built for yourself, take stock of the internal landscapes that you are honouring by mirroring in your everyday life… The beliefs you hold onto about who you are, where you’re positioned in relation to the world about you, what voices are guiding your decisions and if they are yours, a higher guidance or simply the negative echoes of other people’s opinions.

Adjusting your compass is a vital piece of the puzzle when attempting to redesign your life and if your compass isn’t set to true north then you will run toward a repeat performance of unsatisfactory or unsuitable.

The word compass is the leading edge of the word compassion and before you check out, you need to check in… check in on your compassion for yourself first and get friendly with who you are, who you’ve been and who you want to become. If your intended new self requires a new location, new compatriots and connections in order to create optimal conditions for growth then the opportunity will present itself, until then… where are you going?

Just so you know… I believe you’re perfection in progress… wherever you are.

Every one of the 7 Principles is contained within this piece.
