Rewite Your Story From Powerless to Powerful

Do you keep telling the same story of your “lot in life” that just isn’t serving you? I feel you, I really do. I’ve got lots of ways of describing myself, what I’m capable of and what I’m not, how my life is and how it always has been. It’s time to get super-conscious and rewrite your story from powerless to powerful so you can finally step into the life you want to live rather than assuming that is what other people do.

The last few days and even week’s have been difficult for many, but those who choose to use the time to their advantage might find it truly transformative. I personally feel this is a potent opportunity if you know where to focus your attention. I was lucky enough to have the angels show me exactly where to focus whilst I was being really Self-Full, indulging in a spot of meditation.

Let me tell you about my meditation…

I entered a room where Archangel Michael and Archangel Gabriel were waiting to greet me. In this room were four chairs. Now these weren’t just any chairs, they were big plush wing-back leather chairs in fire engine red. They were facing each other and each had a glass and chrome side table with a glass and jug of water. These were the chairs the panel of experts sit in at a symposium, or the judges on The Voice!

Because they were all facing each other, I knew it wasn’t about being judged so I assumed the former. Michael motioned me to sit down and I realised I was one of the experts! Me! But as I sat (and sat a while longer) I realised nobody else was coming and that the other chairs were still empty. Four chairs but I only chose one…

As far as the angels were concerned there were 3 other areas of my life that I believed I had no control over because I kept telling myself that I knew nothing about those things. The message was clear, I need to become the expert in all areas of my own life if I’m going to live it the way I want to. And, I’m going to have to start telling the story that way too.

One of the key areas that I’ve had a story of powerlessness around for that last few years is money. I’ve been telling myself for years that I’m not good with it and I don’t really know what to do with it. I remember back to working in the leisure industry, I used to tell my boss I would run her any department she asked, but if she put me in charge of finance I would bakrupt her inside a week! I’m still telling that same old bullshit story now and the universe is done listening to it… (enter angelic intervention stage left). One of my big red chairs was for the “expert on personal finance” because until we learn how to steward a resource, the universe cannot bring it to you.

The moment I understood the lesson I began learning everything I could about stewarding personal resources including my money, time, energy, etc. I am already willing to accept the expert label in my role as Soul-Life Alignment Specialist & Grail Guide (spirtiual teacher to the layman), but that’s only one chair. I’m not willing to identify with the old paradigm anymore. I’m rewriting my own story from powerless to powerful! If any of this resonates or sounds like you, you need to get educated in the areas you feel you have no control over.

You might be wondering what this has to do with The Grail Path? When you rewrite your story from powerless to powerful, from incompetent or victim to expert, you automatically begin to align with a new frequency that attracts the manifestations that match your description. The Grail isn’t an airy fairy spiritual concept that has no baring on your day to day reality, it is the blueprint for consciously creating your reality as heaven on earth. Both Principes 5 & 6 are about stewarding resources and Principle 1 is all about how we identify with our own worth.

(I will also be introducing The 4 Pillars of The Grail shortly, they will break down the connection between spirit and matter for you even further. Look out for that here on the website in the next few weeks).

Money is energy… and I for one am open to receiving an abundance of it and every other form of high vibe energy into my life.

So, what I really want to know is:

  • What story have you been telling yourself that isn’t working for you?
  • Which of your expert chairs are you going to learn to fill next?
  • What action are you taking to fill your learning gap in that area?
  • What would you like the new story to sound like?
  • And… how can I help?

Let me know in the comments below.

For now though, I’m wishing you a productive and powerful week ahead.

Monday Mind Management – Are You curious Enough?

By the time you reach adulthood, say 30 or so, you have a fairly good grasp of your version of reality. You could even go as far as to say you are pretty locked in by then. Conditioning has given you a set of rules to work by and a sense of right and wrong and your experience has made you a pretty accurate judge of character, an estimator and a judgment machine. It has you believing what kind of foods you will most likely enjoy, what kind of company you will thrive in, what entertainment you prefer to be distracted by, what skills and talents you have and what you cannot do… you’ve probably even developed a “type” when it comes to lovers by this time.

What if I told you that all this information is merely a set of out of date instructions to a very complex living machine?

Every time you are presented with a choice in the coming days, whether it’s as simple as what to eat for lunch or much more in depth and life altering, question your first choice. Don’t misunderstand me, I’m not asking you to make second guessing a habit or to mistrust your instincts but instead of assuming that your instincts are choosing, ask yourself if it is actually your habits that are dictating your daily reality.

In order to open a mind that is closed or a fixed consciousness, consider: are you curious enough? When we believe we already hold all the answers we stop learning, stop evolving and experiences become repetitive, but when we become curious our lives open up to new experiences, new opportunities, sparkling conversations, unlikely friendships and alliances.

Let this become a week of exploration and discovery. Let life become new and with it a whole raft of fresh possibilities. Only with a curious mind and an open heart will those risky strategies turn out to be playful learning opportunities.

Principle 4: I AM Truth always comes with the caveat “I reserve the right to evolve.” Now is not the time to stop that evolution!

I know you’ve been conditioned to believe that curiosity killed the cat, but remember the cat has nine lives… it would be a real shame not to use them all because you are safer with mediocre, eh?

Have an amazingly curious day… x

 

Check Out So You Can Check In

One of the most crucial Principles in The Wholly Grail is: “I AM Self-Full.”  This mantra is a signal to self that its time to focus on one’s own needs in order to keep mind, body and spirit in good health, good cheer, and a pure, clear channel for universal flow. Sometimes it’s essential that you check out so you can check in.

To check out of the day-to-day hustle and bustle for a short while, in other words retreat, is part of my spiritual practice. At times the universe requires me to make space for new learning, expansion of awareness that can only occur once you stop the flow of clutter to tune in to a purer stream of collective higher consciousness… that’s what I mean by “check in.”

At certain stages of the journey, God (or whatever your chosen name for that Higher Power might be) steers me in a direction for personal learning that has little or nothing to do with me as a teacher at this time, but everything to do with me as a student of life… my own life. The lessons shunt me into unfamiliar and often uncomfortable territory allowing me to unlock and heal parts of myself that until the Divine download occurs I had no idea were even an issue.

Checking in to your Higher Power to look deeper within is a part of self-discovery. My last few days of retreat have uncovered for me some deeply ingrained fears and patterns that I now recognise playing out in every aspect of my daily life in the outer world: my teaching style, my health, my relationships, my ability to receive the abundance of the universe… the list is extensive. And though there is momentary grief in the realisation of the obstacles I have placed in my own way, there is also now intense power in the wisdom gained through the inner journey. The Grail Knight must undergo such quests when called to do so… and we are all Grail Knights.

I’m not done yet with this time out from the world of noise, I’m not done with this time of internal exploration. Learning is an exquisite part of my own journey that I do for me… and for you.

Wishing you a weekend of incredibly poignant discovery of self.

Monday Mind Manoeuvre – Enter Discovery Mind

Effective communication doesn’t have to come from a place of complete understanding, it can just as easily flow from a place of seeking to understand. The difference showing up then as a series of open questions and a passion for learning and growth. In order to arrive at this innocent hunger for knowledge one must enter discovery mind.

The ego has it’s place but not in the heart and mind of a Seeker. When you admit “I don’t know,” you open yourself to the inflow of new information simply by emptying yourself of hubris and the need to appear more clued up than you already are. “I don’t know” is a powerful statement of admission, Principle 4: I AM Truth. Following “I don’t know” with a question is an even more powerful statement to the universe that you have entered into a state of receptivity and the inward rush of miracles can commence, Principle 7: I AM Open-Hearted.

Discovery mind is your default setting, you incarnated with the intent to expand and you can only do so by taking in more… more information, more experience, more energy… and this absorption takes place in stages: first we seek outside ourselves for new experience and then we seek within ourselves to understand our own truth about what we’ve learned. “As within, so without,” or “As I understand it, so shall it be.” This affirmation of perception illustrates the flexible nature of reality for any individual soul based on their current state of evolution, and your current state of evolution has been determined by a power higher than yours so why then would you need to pretend to be other than you are just so nobody sees your innocence.

We are all Seekers and we are all teachers. This exchange, regardless of circumstance, good, bad or ugly, is written into the Divine Matrix and can be no other way. Your ability to recognise your greatest teachers is simply dependent on your receptivity to the lesson… and sometimes that’s only obvious once you turn your attention inwards to attend to the second learning phase. Those of us who openly enter discovery mind reach out for new learning, but only those of who then search within will find context and understanding.

Into The Swing – Reassess Your Priorities

If something pivotal has occurred in your life, no doubt things will look confusing for a time until you get into the swing of things.

Accepting new information or a new set of circumstances often involves integrating into your world something that wasn’t there before or even an absence of something that was. Schedules may go awry, routines become entangled and proverbial balls get dropped on the floor.

It’s perfectly acceptable to take time to find your new normal and more than acceptable – it’s absolutely necessary. In many cultures we call it the honeymoon phase, it’s where you get a temporary free pass… more accurately it’s the learning phase where everyone involved takes on the personality of the innocent fool, the student tip-toeing through life’s brand new classroom absorbing information, skills and new techniques as they go.

Reassess your priorities now based on Principle 4: I AM Truth.  What this means is focusing on what’s true and pertinent for you at this stage in your journey. Some of those lovely balls that smash on the floor may actually be filled with nothing more than air and now you feel its time to leave them behind to concentrate on a more authentic version of your dream. Sure, you may feel like you are letting some folks down but the absolute truth of the matter is that you will never be able to please everybody anyway, so then far better to please yourself and allow others to adjust in their own way and go through the same process of reassessing their own priorities.

The world adjusts and organises itself daily to new parameters and this is no different.

It’s helpful to understand what your priorities actually are. In the Seekers section of the site this coming week I’m posting an article about achieving balance, in it will be a chart of all the relevant areas of life that are requiring your attention. It’s free to join as a Seeker here if you would like to take a look.

…For now though, enjoy the temporary chaos, it’s the most satisfying disarray you’ll experience… it’s called creating a new life.

Monday Manifestation Moment – Leaving Room

Manifestation seems to be the whole world’s favourite pass time at the moment but it’s nothing new, the world of the world is in fact all a product of manifestation so feeling like we’ve invented it is just as silly as claiming responsibility for the creation of the Earth itself. Creation is an on going process of which we have been given an active design-led role and also a front row seat in witnessing the unfolding of what is quite probably the biggest spectacle in the universe, well this sector anyway. Leaving room for the performance to thrill you is the part we forget.

It’s this front row where you get to see all the small details up close, the ones you’ve worked so hard on during the production phase of the great story, translating abstract inspiration into tangible, workable scripts for all the players to follow that your performance might play out on the great stage of life… but you forgot that the players are themselves scriptwriters.

You don’t recognise this part of the story. Don’t fool yourself into thinking you know where you are right now. The script you wrote has been discarded and all the leading roles a ad-libbing their hearts out… you have no choice now but to get off that front row seat and take your place on the stage.

As its Monday and you’re probably far to busy to understand all the metaphor, let me be clear:

New information can only be accepted when you leave room to learn. New wisdom comes from participation in the changes that new information results in. Acceptance is a product of a humble attitude to the Divine Plan, to which non of us humans have the full script, just the bit of it we are individually writing with every choice that we make. Chaos is only chaos from the inside, from the all-seeing perspective it’s all beautiful and just as it should be, just as it was, just as it always shall be… Manifestation in motion.

Whatever life throws at you today, you are privileged to be playing a central role in the biggest stage production ever imagined.

Bravo!

The Joy Of Unleashing Your Inner Genius

I’ve had so much fun this week I can hardly contain myself! I took the role of the innocent fool in order to explore a new adventure that quite honestly scared me shitless… I had no idea what I was doing, I knew I would have to make myself visible and vulnerable and that for me, the idea of appearing to not have the first foggiest clue is a territory I dread, but I embraced my fear in order to evolve and discovered what it means to feel the joy of unleashing your inner genius.

Building my website has been excruciating at times. With no technical experience I’ve worked through trial and error, learning along the way. Building a membership site however… creating online training etc… Oh my. I took myself off last week to get some tech training and this week the final link fell into place when a friend pointed me toward a 10 day video challenge. OMG! Video? If you’re doing it online they wanna see your face… I’m on day 3 and I’m having a bloody ball!

Now your inner genius may have nothing to do with anything as mundane as creating your own videos and this insight isn’t about that, your inner genius though, whatever it is, lies just on the other side of fear, discomfort, uncertainty or in my case sheer terror.

I needed to get across that dark stretch of water because what I want to achieve and how I want serve is located on the opposite riverbank. I saw the opportunity, signed up, spent days wondering how I could back out without losing face, then took a deep breath and had a go. I had no idea that my fear was all about looking stupid in public and actually I’ve realised that looking stupid is actually one of my most endearing qualities… I’m having fun, and fun attracts more fun and more connection and encourages others to jump in and have a go too… and I’m all about encouraging others.

Genius doesn’t mean remaining static, it’s about growth and growth can be uncomfortable but that discomfort is short lived… especially if you rip the plaster off!

What do you want to do, be, learn or have?

Go on, rip the plaster off!

Sitting With The Unknowable Next

I seem to have found myself in a magical place of pure potential. I suppose it could be described as innocence, a situation that is so far removed from my prior experience that I cannot for one moment pretend I have the faintest, foggiest idea what the rules are. Being a control freak by nature, it’s both exciting and excruciating sitting with the unknowable next.

This is a true adventure…

Placing yourself in the mindset of the student, open to a new way of being, a new influx of information, letting go of the need to be the one with all the answers, gives rise to fresh energy coming towards you from the universe as it manoeuvres the right people and support into position to help you with the next stage of the journey.

It’s been such a long time since I admitted “I don’t know.” It’s truly liberating.

This place feels like the first day of school and I think I’m falling in love with who I am here. Everything I’m trying to achieve, build and share has been redefined within my heart and mind as a precious gift for all those I meet along the way… and I can’t wait to begin learning.

As the weekend unfolds for you, as an exercise why not place yourself into the mindset of the student, the seeker, the innocent with an open mind and an open heart? When was the last time you gasped in amazement when you discovered something new? It can be disconcerting not knowing but it’s also exhilarating and life affirming and its the starting point for changing and expanding your life.

You might just fall back in love with yourself by admitting you really have no clue… The relief is nothing short of a miracle. Let someone else be the teacher for a while… It’s ok, you’re safe.

Invoke Archangel Zadkiel for help with learning and assimilating new information, he will help it sink in. You simply have to call his name and ask for assistance. You’ll notice the synchronicities as new teachers, guidance and support shows up from unexpected places just when you need it.

Have an amazing weekend.
