Get ready! I’m about to totally rock your world, reinvent the wheel and take you down the rabbit hole with a powerful, new mindful, mechanism for achieving your goals.
A Divine Strategy that will satisfy the pragmatic side of you and align you with the natural flow of things, keep you in the Universal plan, accomplish that goal with grace & ease, and leave you with peace of mind, more joy, amp up your happiness metre and kiss stress and anxiety goodbye. Oh ya!
Are you ready? I’m warning you, it’s Radical……
It’s called the power of “I don’t know”. (I can hear the crickets chirping in the background).
“What do you mean by, “I don’t know” Abby?” What I’m merely suggesting is – Surrender.
Believe it or not, there is a greater way of doing things. A more effective, transcendental style of planning beyond the Law of Attraction hoopla.
It’s more Spirit led and summons a higher wisdom to emerge within you, live on the inside of you, become One with you and direct all of your thoughts, words, desires, actions, illusion free while purpose driven.
You see, I’ve got a bone to pick with the Law of Attraction stuff.
While there is a lot of truth to the “You can have anything you want” BS because you could literally amp up your vibration to draw your desires into actuality, of course you can. However, if your Desires stem from illusion and more from your Egoic wants, I hate to break it to you, but you’ll get what you want and you’ll want more and more and more and never, ever be satisfied.
And yes, we all have a deep yearning to create and Expand, Absolutely! But my radars go up when we’re wired up, stressed out, striking out in our relationships and flat out miserable. When this happens, “Houston, we’ve got a problem.”
Why? Because egoic desires stem from illusion and anything that births out of this will give you a temporary high and then you’re on to the next one, happy for a hot minute and forever striving. And that sucks!
This is not the path to inner fulfillment, enlightenment or achieving any sense of contentment or inner peace. What it does rather, is it pulls us farther and farther away from our True selves.
Even homeboy, Albert Einstein the Scientist was on to something when he said the following:
The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant. We have created a society that honors the servant and has forgotten the gift.
I know some of your reading this may not necessarily agree with this and I’m cool with that, but I beckon you for the love of peace of mind to keep an open heart with this one.
I’m about to list out 3 tools to harnessing the power of “I don’t know” in your lives:
- Be Open. Arianna Huffington, the Media Empress said in an interview with Deepak Chopra, that all of her greatest accomplishments that happened in her life were, totally unexpected, not planned and occurred in a series of synchronicities and coincidences. By the way, she’s written several, successful books and never, ever intended to become a writer, nor believed that she could write.
- Make Intuitive based decisions. Oprah Winfrey in an interview on Larry King when touted as having the golden touch responded that it’s simply not true and that the reason why she succeeds constantly, is because she takes orders from the “still voice” within her.
- Incorporate Stillness in your life. Russell Simmons, the author of “Super Rich” and now “Success through Stillness” says incorporating a daily, meditation practice has helped him surrender all of his desires, attachments and goals so that he could reconnect with his divinity, truth and true happiness. Not to mention, he said his level of creativity is off the charts after he meditates and he’s happy.
When we surrender our Egoic wants, we give permission to our Higher Self to make decisions for us that are aligned with the Universal plan and for our highest good. We also gain access to “Out of the box” strategies that you would never be able to harness by controlling and being inflexible with your plans.
In fact, you actually limit yourself by doing that and you make the journey to Success a drag.
My friends, it’s time for us to make “Goals with Soul” as author, Danielle Laporte would say, for it is the only way to true happiness and inner peace.
May the pure light of Divinity within you, illuminate every cell of your being and shine luminously in all that you do.
OMG! How could I blow this opportunity? Whyyyyy? Sound familiar, we’ve all been there haven’t we?
Little do we know that the door that has closed before us, is actually a door away from opening up that amazing, opportunity with our name on it. But many of us cry over spilled milk, and waste our precious energy, blaming ourselves, analyzing, banging on the closed door before us, instead of letting it go and moving on.
I learned this valuable lesson in the Executive Search business making a “gazillion” cold calls daily. And what I observed, was that the right opportunity just flowed. It just came together. While the wrong opportunity tended to be riddled with resistance and opposition. I can recall getting a weird feeling in my gut in the middle of a deal which signalled me to back off.
There was a greater force at hand and there was nothing I could do about it.
It is by following my intuition that led me to success and when I didn’t; it brought suffering.
I’ve often believed that there is a grace and ease and a timing that comes with the right opportunity. You’ll find that when something has your name on it and you’re completely aware and present, you notice a string of synchronicities and coincidences leading up to your golden moment.
But many of us are so attached to the outcome by living in the future in our minds, that we become distracted and cannot see the signs before us, whether it is a Yea or Nay? In other words, we get into “Desperado” mode while transmitting a lack vibration.
We could spare ourselves so much disappointment by trusting in the unfolding of things and keeping our faith strong.
Here’s a word for you:
“You do not have plot, beg, steal, manipulate, bulldoze your way through for something that already belongs to you.” – Unknown (Love this quote, not mine by the way)
Can I get an Amen?
To approach your goals using all of the above, means that on a deep, unconscious level, you believe that you must prove that you are Worthy and that you must take matters into your own hands and take what rightfully belongs to you.
This is what you call a “Surviving” mentality as opposed to “Thriving” with the belief that what’s for you, is for you.
There will never be someone quite like you, who operates like you, talks like you, walks like you, period. And so, that means that you are perfectly, designed for that special opportunity that you dream of.
I guarantee if you approach your goals with a faith based mentality, all of the cosmos and heavenly realm will beckon to your call. Your level of self confidence will skyrocket and opportunities will be chasing you down – not the other way around. (this philosophy by the way applies to relationships too, just sayin’)
Here’s another dose of wisdom by Silver Birch:
“If you knock on a door and it does not open, do not push. If you push the door gently and it opens, that is for you. You cannot go through a closed door. Too many people in your world waste time and effort banging at closed doors.” – Silver Birch
My philosophy exactly. Preach it Silver Birch!
My friends, a shift in consciousness has occurred, and with that you’ll find that your level of awareness has heightened. We are moving into a higher dimension, a dimension that no longer requires us to push, get wired up, chase, stress yourself out and pursue that which isn’t aligned with your highest good.
As in the wise words of Yogi Bhajan:
“If it doesn’t serve your grace, don’t participate.”
Everything is working in your favour, you just have to believe it, be still and trust your inner guidance to lead the way.
Trust me, you’ll be thankful you did
Cheers to grace & ease!
There are times in life where you’ve just gotta’ sit in your mess and deal. There are moments where you have to face what’s eating you up inside, off with the positive affirmations, the armour and the facade and be where you are.
This is not a conversation about being negative, it is about being real with yourself and not resisting your truth and opportunity to heal.
If you’re going through a crappy time, you’re going through a crappy time.
When we put on a fake smile to the world and hide what’s really going on, we are rejecting our truth by covering it up with positive denial. And this is not the way to getting to the root of your cause. What it does rather, is it delays the inner wisdom hidden within you to heal your false perception and positions you to repeat your karmic patterns over and over and over again.
Who wants to go round the mountain again? Didn’t think so.
Metaphysically speaking, it is absolutely true that our thoughts become the cause and effect of our experience. However, what sets us free from our paradigms is going beyond the thought and examining it’s source; illusion.
There’s a lesson in A Course in Miracles that states:
Every thought you have contributes to truth or to illusion; either it extends the truth or it multiplies illusions.
What that means in simple terms, is that in every given moment our thoughts either stem from a perception of fear or love. There is nothing real but love. Therefore any thought other than this is a figment of our imagination.
And so if you cover up your pain with a load of fluffy affirmations hoping that your “Situation” will go away, it may for a hot minute, but it will return to you in another form and rear it’s ugly head in your life again and again and again because the lesson has not been learnt – the illusion has not been corrected.
Let’s examine a scenario for a moment shall we?
You’re on the verge of a divorce. Your partner wants it and has made it blatantly obvious by moving on with someone else, yet you don’t want to face it and continue on with your normal routine in the marriage with the hopes that it goes away.
The pain is eating you up inside, you walk with a lot of shame because your family and friends don’t know about it (which in some cases is the wise thing to do for a bit), yet you smile and try to be “happy” and that “all is well” so as to keep your spirits up hoping that it’s not really happening while prolonging your pain and suffering.
We’ve been taught as a society that truth hurts, when in reality truth is love and liberates the soul.
What hurts us actually is fear by continuing to believe and barricade ourselves in our illusions while blocking our spiritual growth.
As in the wise words of Gloria Steinem,
“The truth will set you free, but first it will piss you off”
It is when you finally look in the mirror cry, press the repeat button and cry again is what opens the door to healing so that truth can emerge, and love can flow through you.
The answers to all of our problems lies within us and those who have the courage to look within will open the door to a brand, new world of perception full of love.
A world of possibility awaits you my friends!
Be brave. Be true.
