Ok, so here’s the “dilio”. What I’m about to share with you may or may not resonate with some of you and I’m cool with that. In fact, some of you may actually think I’m a straight up “Nutbag” but that’s ok, I’m goin’ in anyways.
For the first time ever, I witnessed myself and actually heard the voice of my Higher Self. After all of the books I’ve read, after all the spiritual stuff I talk to you about, the endless amount of meditation, I finally get what every Spiritual Teacher known to mankind has tried to teach us and wanna know something?
It’s soooo wild. So this happened…..
It was like my Mind completely slowed down and I heard myself rambling about something and just in that moment, for a split second, I heard the still voice of my Higher Self emerge and say “Look at her chattering away.” Jolt, “Huh, where did that come from?” “But it’s only me talking?” What!? “You mean there’s two of us in here?” Yikes.
The moment I became Aware that there was someone else lurking behind the scenes observing me, truthfully, I got a little creeped out and then it stopped – that was my moment!
I know some of you are probably saying “So what else did it have to say?” And you know what, that was it and maybe, just maybe, if I didn’t resist and get startled I could of learnt a lot more about myself. Oh well, next time.
Here’s the whole point to all of this that I want you to think about.
If in fact there’s 2 “so called” people residing in your Mind, how do you know which one is the “Real slim shady” or the “imposter?”
My guess is that the Imposter is the one who won’t stop chattering, incessantly. You know as the old saying goes, “Empty vessels make the most noise.”
My friends, imagine what would happen if we got to know our Higher Self a little better? The answers to all of what troubles us would be answered and we wouldn’t have to go outside of ourselves to seek anything at all.
We would simply just have to be Still and receive divine guidance. There would be no need to have a panel discussion with your friends about your “Situation”, there would be no need to pay for advice, all you would have to do is look within you.
You see, most of us have the tendency to go outside of ourselves and the reason why we do this, is that on a deeper level, we believe that we are separate from “All that Is” when we are actually one with it.
The best way to describe it is like in the movie “Men in Black”. Remember that memory device that was used to wipe out their memory? Well that’s what happens when we come into the world. We tell ourselves in order to “Survive”, we must create our own Identity through the Ego to fend for ourselves with the belief that we are forgotten.
The irony of it all, is that after all the seeking and the searching, we finally come to our senses and return home to our true Identity; we remember our magnificence within.
That’s when true happiness and inner peace emerges, for we now operate with a knowingness of who we “Really Are.”
A beautiful, human being filled with so much light and love to give to the world.
I remember when I started writing my random thoughts for Talk With Abby, a couple of people were like “Whoa, with the woo woo” stuff girl, and I laughed quite honestly cause I get why they were taken aback because it was the first time I revealed this part of myself.
One person actually told me to tone it down with the “Prophet” talk…. my response was “Thank you very much for your opinion, but the “Prophet” talk stays”, with a smile of course .
You see, what I’ve discovered, is that creative expression is the most, liberating feeling, ever. Oh yes, writing helped me find my Authentic voice, it helped me say the things that I thought in my mind that I was afraid to say. It cracked me open and the “Real Me” emerged.
Oh yes, putting pen to paper was an Awakening for me. It was like I opened this sleeping cell within my being and the words just flowed like a river, effortlessly. I am so thankful for discovering this hidden gift that I overlooked for so many years of my life. And this is the very reason why I encourage people to “Stay Open” and to never proclaim to have everything figured out about yourself.
We are all evolving as we expand into who we are meant to be. Our journey is infinite, there is no beginning and no end. When we label ourselves however, I believe we create limitations in the mind as to what’s possible.
I’ll give you an example. I remember in my earlier years I would chant “I’m not a morning person.”, ”I hate mornings” and one day my father said to me, “please stop saying that it irritates my auditory canal.” (Don’t ask about his choice of words…lol!)
And so being the undercover, rebel that I am, I challenged him and what he explained to me was that by saying “I’m a blah, blah, blah, you limit what’s possible for yourself.”
And you wanna know something?
He was right. Because many years later, I discovered that I’m the happiest, annoying, morning person you’ll ever meet. In fact, I have no issue with getting up at 5am in the morning and not being cranky at that. Even on weekends. Seriously!
Had I of closed my mind to this by labelling myself, I would not have discovered that I actually like waking up in the morning, get my point.
What I’ve discovered during this magnificent, transformative, healing period of my life, is that I’m actually a gregarious, intraovert who loves her own shadow.
Yup, I’m one part extraovert, 1 part intraovert, a closet nerd who loves to read deep spiritual stuff and philosophize. Still got my edge and practicality though, pfewww! Cool points in check.
I’ve discovered the “Real Me” and I’m loving it.
And actually to be perfectly, honest with you, I resisted this part of myself initially and “Judged” myself as being a “Party Pooper” as I compared myself to the “Old Me”.
But, I really believe that God was helping me to remove my mask so that I could discover my True essence. And I gotta’ tell ya’ Truth rocks and it’s “Uber” liberating!
As you grow, you too will discover so many hidden gifts and talents within yourself to be used as a service to many.
My advice – don’t hold back, don’t edit, don’t filter, Be You fearlessly. Because at the end of the day, there will be a tribe that will dig you and appreciate everything about you. You don’t have to become anything other than yourself, the world’s got enough copycats, what it needs is more originals.
Quite contrary to your belief, your “uniqueness” is actually your secret weapon. If you go putting all kinds of artificial fillers and additives, you’ll screw up the recipe. And, the irony of it all, is the more you accept yourself is the more the world with accept you.
In fact, you will liberate others to be themselves by your example and become a shining beacon of light.
Cheers to being fearless!
“I can’t believe that person said that about me!” “How dare they say that, the nerve (Eye Roll) Arghh!!” “You know what, I’m gonna give them a piece of my Mind.”
Do any of these statements sound familiar? I bet it does, we’ve all said them at some point or another, haven’t we?
Or how about this “Those haters, who do they think they are?” and while we’re having our freak out session, they’re merrily moving on with their day without a clue how infuriated we are and couldn’t care less.
So now my question to you is, how’s your freak out session working for you? I bet if you’re honest with yourself it makes you feel heavy, increases your stress levels, distracts you from your focus, it all round doesn’t make you feel good at all.
I know this cause I’ve been there. And you wanna know what? I realized that the more I invested my precious energy in pointing the finger back at the so called haters, I was only hurting myself in the process AND giving my power away.
You see, the moment you rise to attack, fight or defend yourself to another, you become a part of their illusion.
I can read your mind right now and you’re saying “Huh, what’s up the psycho, babble stuff Abby?” Let me explain in lamans terms. Are you ready?
Whatever you focus on expands. And so, the more you fixate on the other person’s behaviour, is the more you expand the negative, energetic field around you and the person and you become one with it.
There’s no magic to this, it’s flat out metaphysics.
The very first lesson of A Course in Miracles states:
“Nothing Real is threatened. Nothing Unreal exists. Therein lies the peace of God.”
In other words, if you are safe and secure being you and you’ve got a good sense of who you “Really Are” as a person, then why must you prove yourself to another?…….hmmmm.
How a person sees you is based on the lens of their own perception. And so, if all they see is the negative, it’s a clear indication that they are trapped in the insanity of their illusions because the only thing Real is Love. Anything other than this, is a figment of a person’s imagination and a product of their altered reality.
And so, the person that chooses to point the finger at another, is actually in conflict with themselves, and so their hissy fit, really has nothing to do with you, therefore there’s no need to defend. Seriously!
So now enough with the other person, because we’re not quite off the hook just yet because there’s nothing cute about “Victimitis”.
Why did you feel triggered by what the person had to say? I want you to really think about it for a moment. In fact, I want you to close your eyes for a moment and ask yourself this question.
Did this person strike a cord within you in any way, perhaps your “Shadow Self”? In other words, was there any part of what they’re saying about you that you find within yourself to be true. You know, the parts about you that don’t quite like but hide to the rest of the world.
Interesting isn’t it? You see, when you expand your level of Awareness, you will begin to see every encounter as a healing or teaching opportunity as you learn more about yourself. And so having said this, the very person that’s spewing out unsavoury remarks to you may actually be divinely used to heal a part of yourself.
The beauty of it all is that our world becomes magical when we Awaken to the school of life before us. And that is why I truly believe that we can heal ourselves by becoming more Aware and present. You can actually become your own “Guru” by becoming more in tune with yourself, heal and transcend your karmic patterns that are getting in the way of your spiritual evolution.
And transformation begins to happen as our perception shifts from fear to love and we return home to who we “Really Are”.
A beautiful, magnificent, human being filled with so much love and light to give the world.
And so the next time someone gives the finger to you about something you said, what you’re wearing, the colour of your hair, whatever and you feel the steam rising to the surface within you, free yourself of the negativity by saying quietly in your Mind “I release all grievances with this person, I forgive myself, I now set myself free.”
Then watch how slowly you return back to Inner Peace and happy land.
Face your truth with courage and grace my friends, your freedom awaits!
