Modus Operandi Part 5: Everything Else Is Just Gravy

As you’ve probably worked out by now if you’ve been reading this series: there are 7 parts to this Modus Operandi theory I’ve been exploring. Today it’s worth exploring under the hood of ownership, there’s what we actually need and then everything else is just gravy.

Coming from a perspective of lack we cling to everything in a desperate bid to create a sense of safety. From the perspective of competition we accumulate stuff as a representation of how well we’re doing. Each of these reasonings is fundamentally flawed and in opposition to other Grail Principles. For example: if you embrace Principle 7: I AM Open-Hearted, you will place yourself in the flow of abundance, giving and receiving in equal measure and all of your needs are effortlessly met. If you embrace Principle 4: I AM Truth, your status in comparison to the next individual becomes obsolete as we understand that uniqueness is beyond comparison.

We accumulate more and more, building the prison of fear… not through having and appreciating beautiful, useful, life enhancing things but through the fear of losing them and the lengths we go to to maintain and keep them, to protect them which we lie to ourselves about how we are protecting ourselves, protecting our assets… but are they assets or are they liabilities?

I’m by no means anti material wealth, in fact I’d love a bigger house, nice car (and chauffeur), the latest gadgets, enormous bank balance and all the trimmings but what don’t want is the fear that comes with holding onto them…

So what do you keep telling yourself about what you have own and why you need to keep it? What is you Modus Operandi when it comes to justifying why you have to work so hard to make ends meet?

When you look at your bills do you instantly worry that you need to earn more to cover it… or do you recognise that you simply need to ‘own’ less and reduce stress, live free.

When you shift out of denial and get clear about what you actually need versus “everything else is just gravy” you let go of the attachment to all things, then lack, grasping, fearful behaviours and worry energy give way to peace, contentment, flow and abundance.

Start this weekend with a fearless inventory of your ‘must haves’ and your ‘nice to owns’, you’ll be amazed at how much pressure it takes off. Principle 5: I AM Liberated.

Saturday Oracle – Free Your Mind From Worry

Worry is the single most useless type of thought process you can apply your mind to, and yet it is also a fairly universal preference. I say preference because we have a choice, and if we have a choice and still choose worry then surely it’s because we prefer it? Isn’t it time to free your mind?

This week’s combination includes Principle 5: I AM Liberated, the affirmation of letting yourself out of a prison born of matter with the highly spiritual violet crown chakra. These two are are a prescription for remedial action where worry is concerned.

So the potential for the week ahead then is finding yourself being drawn into negative thought patterns and false beliefs about something or someone, that have been keeping you locked into your current set of circumstances and unable to move forward. It’s important to get to grips with the fact that neither the object nor the individual have any power over you, it is your thoughts about the subject that control your action or inaction.

Interrupting the worry habit is key to rectifying the detrimental effects on your physical and emotional life and there are a few ways you can do that… this particular combination is recommending meditation as an antidote, distraction is another that simply takes you filling idle time where your mind has too much opportunity to wander back to the familiar, with concentrated effort or new learning.

Worry is usually about loss of some kind, whether that be loss of material attachments, loss of status, loss of comfort, loss of tribal bonds and relationships, loss of reputation, loss of health and finally loss of life. Worry won’t fix any of those things and that’s why finding perspective through witnessing your life from a higher platform during meditation can help you firstly release your mental and emotional grip on whatever recurring thought has you held prisoner, and secondly will allow your higher self to switch you to solution based deliberation.

You may not actually be in danger of losing the object of your apparent distress at all and in that case the energy you expend fretting about it may be causing issues of its own.
