Creating space to grow is vital for the next adventure to commence. You didn’t get here by accident. Though you may not have actually intended your current set of life circumstances (or perhaps some of you did), every thought, belief and choice: unconscious or otherwise has led to where you are now and if you take just a moment to trace the path back, without becoming too enmeshed in the history, you will see which actions or inactions led to each step on the journey.
It’s not an exercise in self punishment or judgment but rather a learning process for future development. If you are drawn to working with angels, like me, then Archangel Jeremiel would be the perfect angel to call upon to help you do a fearless evaluation of the journey so far. Call upon him in meditation before you begin to retrace your steps. Once you have a clear picture of what brought you to this place in life you can begin to choose more consciously where to focus to direct the flow in the present towards a deliberately intended future.
The next step however, is to make room for that future to enter by recognising that something new cannot exist where the old fills the space… health cannot live where unhealthy habits dwell, love cannot enter where the space is filled with fear, prosperity cannot find room in a miserly hoard etc.
Let’s take the example of love and relationships…
When you look around you do you see fulfilling, mutual, supportive, uplifting connections to those you surround yourself with? If the answer is yes then you are very fortunate indeed simply because there is no greater currency than love. If on the other hand you feel that your companions take more than they give or disrespect your boundaries in some other way then you have to ask yourself whether or not you keep them around just out of fear of the alternative of being alone? It’s a tough question to face and you may flinch at the thought of creating space by dropping partners, friends and companions…but that’s not the formula here… what is more important is adjusting how you treat yourself. When you love yourself completely and uncompromisingly, you no longer accept less from anyone else. When you respect yourself completely and uncompromisingly, others follow suit and those that don’t will naturally fall away leaving room for new companions to step in mirroring back your love.
If you berate yourself constantly, pull yourself down, neglect your emotional needs, cave in on your boundaries: your time, your personal space, your possessions, your intellectual property, your standards and principles, even your personal truth… then you send a signal to those around you that its ok for them to do the same.
When you have taken a look at how you arrived here with Jeremiel’s help, start creating space to grow by weeding out those behaviours and beliefs that hold you apart from your deepest and dearest wishes. Self-love is the key to your conscious onward journey into your Wholly Grail.
