Understanding Your Motives – In It For The Long Game

There is an energy at present that centres around the culmination of a lot of years of focus. The potential now is so intense that whatever happens next is either the end of the beginning or the beginning of the end – make or break so to speak. That kind of intensity though can cloud judgment, force reactive behaviour and in some cases cause you to run towards an outcome or even away from it depending on your dominant archetypal energy.

Whatever this main focus of attention is, you can bet that all the other aspects of day to day life have taken a back seat and that imbalance is already occurring. (If you’re a member, I will be addressing this imbalance in the Seeker’s section this week. You can join for FREE here).

Here though, I would instead like to concentrate on one potential stressful factor that could become the trigger for one of those reactive behaviours: Have you forgotten why?

Understanding your motives for any action is the purest way to ensure you meet the challenge in a ‘success focused’ way.

Let’s take a new relationship as an example. Whether it be a romantic relationship or a business partnership or any other meeting of minds and hearts, it takes two parties to have the same agenda in order to bring about the desired outcome. Factor in free will, personal schedules, historical baggage, poor communication or misunderstandings and the whole process takes much longer.

Now baring in mind that we are feeling the universal flow bringing things to a pinnacle, all these trifles will no doubt be raising cortisol levels and pushing all the internal fear buttons… so now remember: “Why?”

You’re in it for the long game.

You’re not trying to get somewhere, this IS the relationship. It’s not where it is going but it is where it is, it is what it is, and what it is is growing… a work in progress, a masterpiece of manifestation. Look how far you’ve come.

The momentary surge of ‘now or never’ is just an illusion of time. The time is indeed right for this next step but this next step is simply another step in the story, beautiful now and heading towards many more beautiful things.

Be assured that what you feel under all the uncertainty, the reason you began this quest, that bit is real; the fear, the stress and the urgency are symptoms of insecurity that arise when your “what?” becomes the focus instead of your “why?”

Patience combined with the absolute clarity of the vision that began this journey will carry you through the next few days… and then the next part of the adventure will commence… it has been promised.

Principle 2: I AM Detached

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!
