You have many options to choose from when you respond to others. You can respond from fear and judgment, your past experiences or your expectations and beliefs. Or you can respond from detachment, unconditional love, peace and joy. Each interaction you have with another presents you with an opportunities to choose from which place you will respond.
What does a spiritual person look like? Are they tall, short, thin, fat? How do they act? Are they happy, sad, pleasant or angry? How do we know if we or anyone is spiritual or not? Are there signs that we can see or special things we can look for? And what is the difference between being spiritual and not spiritual? Is there such a thing?
So many lightworkers today have a longing to 'go home,' to reconnect with their spiritual birthplace, to return to the place where they feel a sense of belonging, acceptance and love. And as the veil that separates the material and spiritual world becomes thinner, as it is during this time of the Shift, many of you will feel that longing to a greater degree. It is a longing that is difficult to resolve because you no longer see the world as you once did. You are now able to recognize the drama and materialism of the third dimension and because you have agreed to Shift your consciousness, can no longer participate in it. So where do you feel comfortable and how do you reconcile the new emotional and spiritual you with the world around you? And when can you go home?
Whether you believe that you have power or not, you use your power every day. Everything that exists in your reality is there because you used your power to create it. Take a moment to consider everything that you enjoy and appreciate in your reality-you used your power to create it. Now take a moment to consider everything in your life that you do not like-you used your power to create that too. There is no separation between good and bad or right and wrong in the Universe. Everything that is in your reality is there because you used your power to put it there. Does your reality reflect powerful living?
You each have two heart energies, a spiritual heart and your emotional heart. The emotional heart is the one that can be wounded by others. It is the one that sheds tears over unmet expectations, broken relationships and experiences hurt feelings. The emotional heart is controlled by the ego and creates attachments to what others say or do and your own self-worth. It can be destroyed, belittled and even broken through your life experiences. Your emotional heart can compel you to do and say things out of fear or anger, reacting to others in ways that you may not have believed yourself to be capable of.
The first spark of spiritual awareness is hope, for it is hope that keeps humanity moving forward in its quest for peace and joy. No matter how bad things seem, hope is what allows you to rise and face a new day, with the belief that any situation can get better. Many people today have lost hope and live in fear. Their lives have become a series of events of varying degrees of difficulty from which they believe they will never escape. They have become wanderers in their own lives, moving from one experience to the next, blindly accepting what they are faced with and not feeling capable of changing any of it.
Your first step to understanding and healing begins with your willingness to do so. You must be willing to open yourself up to the opportunities for a different reality, for joy and peace, for unconditional love to be the prevailing energy in your life. When you are willing for change to happen, the Universe can begin working with you to open the doors to new opportunities. Nothing can happen, however, until you are willing to release the old and allow the new to enter. Your free will is what you must surrender in order to heal the past and move forward into a new and different future.
Every experience marks another step on your spiritual path. Whether it is easy or challenging it is a call to you to do your inside work, to look at how your thoughts created this reality. You are all moving into the ability to instantly manifest what you think and speak about and the Universe instantly responds to your energy. If you are feeling powerless you will create a reality that reflects your belief that you are not powerful. If your experiences are positive and joyful, they also reflect what you have created and are not an accident. Your inside work has to do with how you create both joy and pain in your reality and how you will move forward on your path.
Our soul’s journey is focused on learning to be in alignment, where our spiritual and material worlds become one, where we live a life of effortless manifestation, filled with joy, unconditional love and abundance. Most of us wonder what that is like, for it may not be the state of our lives at the present moment. We may have issues or problems, we are unhappy, unfulfilled and discontent. Or, if we do manage to create some magical moments of alignment, they do not last long. Is it possible for us to be in alignment all of the time and still be human, living in the material world? Are there sacrifices that we must make to achieve this?
When you manifest change in your life, asking for abundance, joy, peace and happiness, what is your intention? Is your manifestation about having more than others? If so, then you are manifesting from the ego and not from the heart space. When you manifest from the ego, everything that you ask for is more than you need or based on what others have. If you do not receive it, then you doubt your ability to manifest. But if it comes from the heart space, it is a request that can be supported by the Universe because it is in your Highest Good and that of everyone, everywhere.
