Monday Mind Manoeuvre – Taking The Next Natural Step

When you see life as a journey along a path, The Grail Path for example, each stage becomes a step that leads to the next and the next and so on. Taking the next natural step is a sign that you are ready for whatever life is revealing and you’re in alignment with what destiny has in store.

When something stops being big and scary and becomes just the next logical action in a series of cumulative lessons, it is evidence that divine timing has lined up all the relevant pieces to create an energetic bridge across what may once have seemed like a vast chasm.

A concept I use when introducing people to their guardian angels when they have never done anything like it before, is the visualisation of the rainbow bridge…

Standing on the edge of a great precipice, the other side clearly out of reach and the depths below obscured by a mysterious mist. You here a faint and gentle whisper, haunting and yet subtle in rhythm and pitch, calling you forward: “I’m here. Trust.” As the voice gets gradually louder and more reassuring you notice the mist begin to rise with its soft melody from the depths of the chasm below. Once the mist has risen high enough for the light to shine upon it, the light is refracted through the water vapour and forms a beautiful rainbow bridge to the other side…. and the voice calls you softly to cross the light bridge, step by step, fully supported by divine assistance and faith, whereupon reaching the other side of the great divide your guardian angel is waiting for your arrival with open arms.

It’s a beautiful visualisation and holds within it the seeds of wisdom for any apparently unreachable goal. Just because you couldn’t always see the bridge, or indeed the next step, doesn’t mean it wasn’t there or won’t show up when you need it to.

Whatever huge leap of faith you may be asked to take this week, believe that it is the next natural step and the chasm between where you are and where you want to be is actually just a matter of focusing on the light and believing the rainbow will appear when the timing is right.

May your Monday bring you a bridge to your dearest wishes.

Refocus On Terminated Timelines – How About Now?

Although I only managed an abridged oracle reading on Facebook this week due to the turbulent transfer of the website to a new permanent home, (it’s now arrived safely), if you’ve been keeping up you may have noticed it was very much about checking in with your internal compass.

This has been playing out for me over the last few days in a mentally exhausting trip down memory lane to a series of terminated timelines. By terminated timelines I mean things like abandoned projects, ideas, goals and even friendships and relationships that seemed to fall by the wayside as life shifted to and fro.

I haven’t been on a self-absorbed reminiscent mission or anything, in fact I’ve been consciously present with whatever I’m doing (mainly to get through the list and displace the overwhelm), but at the most random of moments an idea will pop in my head that is an idea that I benched years ago.

The universe seems to be saying “How about now?”

We often think of terminated timelines as failures, things that didn’t work, but I’m currently considering the the whole concept of Divine Will and Timing. What if those old hopes and dreams, ideas and inspirations weren’t failures? What if they were just in cold storage until Source deemed the time to be right?

While my particular compass is spinning back and forth through this week and I’m doing only what’s required of me with as much grace as is humanly possible, (except for my tai chi/qi gong lesson last night where I was decidedly aggressive and grace had nothing to do with it, leaving us all in fits of hysterics), I’m not in a state of trying to conceive anything new right now, rather to fulfil and complete what’s already present… clearing the decks so to speak. I’m aware of the herald of new energy arriving and the angels are showing me omens of that energy catching me up from the past. Something that wouldn’t have worked back then is shortly to present itself as an option now.

But there’s a problem with that… I’m a contrary little shit when it comes to being managed (see Monday’s insight), even if I’m being managed by God! My initial reaction to the thought of anyone or anything saying “not then but now” instantly created a rise of defiance in me: “well what if it’s not convenient for me right now?” “What if I don’t want it?” (At this point my less childish higher self is shaking her head in despair uttering “can’t you see God is attempting to deliver you a gift?”

So, having noticed the incoming energy and omens, having mentally exhausted myself trying to pin down the exact nature of the message whilst completing a gruelling schedule, having given my ego a good talking to about gratitude and acceptance, having kicked the shit out of some imaginary foe in what’s supposed to be a peaceful exercise, and having returned to the Grail for peace as is its purpose here’s what I found….

Principle 1: I AM God, so if He’s holding up the past as a new option then actually so am I.

Principle 2: I AM Detached, so if I let go of control over how and when whatever it is shows up I will not destroy today with mental exhaustion about tomorrow.

Principle 3: I AM Human, so I forgive myself for the temporary defiance and learn to laugh at my ego’s belief it has any power over Principle 1.

Principle 4: I AM Truth, so anyone’s opinions (including my own) about where I’ve been and what’s gone before has no bearing on who I am and where I am today.

Principle 5: I AM Liberated, so I will not allow my fear of losing what is, to inhibit my allowing what might be.

Principle 6: I AM Self-Full, so I choose to nurture my own well-being through any turbulence and change.

and finally…

Principle 7: I AM Open-Hearted, so I have the capacity to allow the universe to bestow abundance in any form upon me and let it flow as it will… to, through and from me.

Now I’m ready to see how the story ends.

Bank Holiday Monday Mental Manoeuvre – Neutral Mind

Something inside me triggered when I did the oracle reading at the weekend. It was a sort of underlying anticipation of the outcome ready to be revealed. This feeling of uncertainty, excitement and a fierce need to know are all so familiar to me… and all so unproductive, uncomfortable and power draining. If like me, your inner control freak has had its interest peaked by the unfolding of a prediction or longed for hope or dream, then you ┬áreally need to get this.

Action taken to coerce, pressure, or hurry God’s timetable will result in delay, disappointment and dissatisfaction.

Applying a neutral mind however, allows a space for the universe to reveal the treasure it has amassed on your behalf without you narrowing the field of opportunities in how that delivery might take place. A neutral mind is an open mind, a fertile space for growth of knowledge and wisdom.

It’s your job to simply observe, listen, experience.

Principle 2: I AM Detached, is at the heart of this mental adjustment and involves stepping back from the game and watching how the next bit evolves… a bit like planting a seed. You give it soil, water and warm sunlight: optimum growing conditions, but ultimately it must grow of its own accord and on it’s own or God’s schedule. You have no control over how it eventually flowers or even if it will, but as you observe it break through the soil into the light you revel in the seedlings progress, maintain caring for it’s needs and provide for its survival but you cannot force it to grow nor give it a deadline.

This moment has information in it. This moment is teaching you something of great importance… is it patience? Is it acceptance? Perhaps it is teaching you to take your focus off the seedling and broaden your perspective to enjoy the whole garden?

Whatever it is that you are narrowly focusing on, whether it is a new relationship, a job opportunity, a potential project, etc, know that you can be happy now if you understand that this bit, “the in between bit,” “the neither here nor there bit” is every bit as much a part of your unfolding experience as the final reveal. You will have benefited from the journey whether the outcome is as you’d hoped or not.

It doesn’t matter how this turns out, I’m thoroughly enjoying witnessing the performance be it comedy or tragedy… it’s only drama if I’m overly invested. Principle 7: I AM Open-Hearted, is love without strings… that means the seedling can grow or not as it chooses. It is loved, respected and appreciated anyway. We all get 10 out of 10 for just taking part whether we win, lose or draw.

Whatever form your seedling takes, leave room in your neutral mind for it to grow (if it wants to).

Left Behind

They say timing is everything, (whoever they are). Synchronicity, a long term buzz word of the spiritual community describes being in the right place at the right time for the right things to happen… The rest of the world might call this pure coincidence but this all depends on your beliefs about a bigger picture and a Divine plan guiding your life.

Personally, I choose to believe in something bigger, but being human as I am (Principle 3), this belief often gets caught up in fearful thinking that there won’t be enough… enough time, enough resources, enough love, enough anything… that I’ll be in the wrong place, I’ll miss the opportunity and somehow I’ll get left behind.

Lack mentality, another self-help, spiritual buzz word, ┬áis the term used to describe this phenomenon of perceiving there will never be enough and its a catalyst for war, violence and hatred as we as a species scramble for the first place in the line… obviously I’m making reference to this Black Friday thing that everyone is talking about.

Just one day after Thanksgiving and we are suddenly as ungrateful as you can get in a “more, more, more” rush to get ahead just in case we miss out on something… something that we never actually wanted in the first place.

Despite my occasional tendencies towards forgetting that the universe has my share put aside for the exact moment when I need it, I’m giving this free-for-all a wide birth. I don’t remember the massive sales being a part of any nativity and the gifts that arrived in the stable didn’t come with a reduced sticker.

If I’m not in the right place at the right time for the right thing to happen then it was never the right place, the right time or the right event… synchronicity cannot be contrived, that defeats the object altogether. If you haven’t got it then you don’t need it, if you need it, the universe will deliver without you needing to fight for it.

Let this apply to all your wants in this moment and you will be truly blessed.

Be Light of Heart

It’s the first Monday of the month and that can only mean one thing: challenge day!

There are so many things in this world that you have absolutely no control over but whether or not you choose to enjoy the current experience is definitely not one of them.

Enjoyment, joy, is a sensation that comes from within and begins with the acceptance at your core, of the beauty of where you are at this particular juncture of proceedings regardless of the perceived outer discomfort. Believing in divine perfect timing combined with the empowerment that can only come from recognising that there is always a choice, removes the sense of helplessness that can overcome any given situation when you feel stuck between a rock and a hard place. You’re an infinite being and the external apparent mayhem is only temporary however unsatisfactory it may feel.

The challenge then, being as we are already into June: let yourself be guided by the carefree attitude that summer affords, let your choices be guided by the search for joy… not out there, but within.

Be light of heart and don’t take it all so seriously!

I’ll be back tomorrow with the next instalment of The Five Hurdles…
