You have expectations of yourselves that concern how you are able to create your life, the money you earn, the material goods you possess, your success and happiness. How do you create the expectations and what happens when they are not met? It is disappointing when your expectations are not met. Then what you do achieve seems unimportant even though you may have achieved great things when viewed from the perspective of your soul's growth and the lifetimes that you have spent in trying to achieve your goals. Are you perfect and do you strive for perfection in all that you do? In order to be successful in all that you do, you must look at what you expect of yourself and how you measure perfection.
Many doors will open for you as step into the Shift energy and raise your vibrations. Some of these are opportunities to move forward on your path, to take on new roles that challenge you to accept your soul purpose. Others are opportunities to make different choices, to assess whether you want to continue on certain paths or to open yourself to new possibilities. The Shift is bringing forth a convergence of karma, a time when all of its lifetimes of karma are being shown to humanity to experience, review and decide whether this is the path that they want to follow. That is why so many of your experiences at this time are so difficult, on an individual and global level-you are not dealing with a singular instance of karma. Each experience now contains all of the karma that you have accumulated across many lifetimes. All you must do is choose which door you want to step into.
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.
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.
You set the energy of your reality by what you surrender to. Surrender in this sense is not giving up, it is an act of embracing and accepting. You can surrender to any of the energies that are around you, love, joy, peace and abundance or fear, sadness, drama and lack. Each of these energies is present in your life in varying degrees at every moment. What you focus on is what you surrender to and as a result, it becomes the predominate energy in your life. Surrender to the joy in your life and allow joy to become the energy of your reality.
There is only one lesson that all of humanity needs to learn to bring heaven on earth, and it is the lesson of forgiveness. There is a single message of the Shift and it is to love and forgive each other. As the energy quickens and you feel the Shift energy reverberating throughout your lives, you will notice that how you react to others changes. As you raise your vibrations it becomes more difficult to be annoyed and frustrated with those around you. The gift of your higher vibration is the ability to see into others' hearts and to understand the pain and frustration that they live with. How can you not forgive someone when you realize that they are doing the best that they can, in every situation?
Trusting that you will be provided for is one of the lessons of the Shift and yet, for many of you, despite your trust, this path has not been easy. You may feel that your trust has not been rewarded, that your needs have not been met and that your spiritual journey is much more difficult than that of someone who is not on the spiritual path. Yes, the Universe does provide and your trust is abundantly rewarded but you must act with trust, not wait in trust. Trust requires that you act on opportunities and situations that are provided to you, no matter how illogical or unfamiliar they may be. Having trust but being unable to take a step in any direction merely shows a lack of trust.
If you could know the heart of God, you would see each person that you meet, each person in your life, as their spiritual self and would know no emotion but unconditional love for them and for everyone and everything on the planet. You would see yourself as the powerful, wise and wonderful being that you are. You would be free from fear and all of its manifestations. You would be at peace, knowing that you are always protected, loved and guided on each step of your journey. The heart of God lives in each of you and manifests in your reality as miracles. The heart of God is where you must connect with your own heart, if you are to understand and experience the concept of unconditional love and true joy.
Do you spend time worrying about what may happen in the next moment, week, month or year? What do you believe will be the result of your worry? Will it resolve the situation or bring a solution? Worry in any form is an expression of the fear that you feel about a situation, whether it is about something that has happened in the past or may happen in the future. When you worry you are no longer living in the present moment and all of your attention is focused on what you fear. Since this is where your energy is flowing you will manifest more of what you worry about. Worry is not necessary when you trust that the Universe will meet all of your needs.
When something goes wrong someone has to take the blame. This occurs on individual, cultural and national levels. No one wants to be at fault but someone has to be blamed to give the anger and emotional energy a focal point. On a national level, you may blame your leaders; on an individual level, those to blame can be your parents, employer, partner or friends. It is always someone else's fault when things go wrong. This has created a global abdication of responsibility for the creation of the world you live in and is a central reason for the world's situation. You live in a state of blame instead of a state of peace, joy and potential.
