This week’s blog is a little bit more personal and reflective, as I foresee some future blogs being. While the part of me that understands social media and content based business (to a somewhat good degree) and how I should write to solve your (the reader’s) problem(s), I also understand that everyone just wants to be seen. In an effort to remain authentic, I feel it is incredibly important to embrace the mess that Life can be for everyone, including myself. For today’s blog mindfulness prompt, I think we should just open our eyes together Whether that means we are seeing each other, or ourselves, or we are embracing our own messes of Life, or we choose to see that divine part of ourselves on a deeper level today: Let’s just be in understanding together.
On this journey of consistent and mindful growth I find that I am almost always in this ebb and flow, or push and pull you could say, between two aspects of myself. There is this deep, divine part of me that knows that everything is beautiful and blessing always, and then there is this humanness and (probably conditioned) ego that is both concerned for the future as well as looking at my reality, which is not where I want it to be. Within that humanness and ego I am working my damn best to ground into that divinity and knowing, and I am certainly growing into that place of divine grace and high vibration.
Here is the lesson I am learning as I move through this process… The path of growth is fucking hard, and it doesn’t have to be.
What can be hard is surrendering, but what if we just tried softening? Because that is what truly comes from the process. What can be hard is manifesting, or figuring out how to, but what if we just allowed what we wanted to appear for us? Because as I am learning, that is true manifestation. What can be hard is striving, isn’t that what you’re supposed to do on a path of personal growth and self improvement? Ahh, but what if we allowed ourselves to thrive? Right where we are. Because that is what we are meant to do. And in each passing moment we can expand our definition or experience of thriving as we grow.
There is so much resistance within surrender, manifesting (making it happen, as I often see it or brains often interpret it incorrectly), and striving. This is not the truth of any human on the planet. Resistance will not carry us gracefully into anything we desire that is divine (i.e. healing, growth, etc.). I am learning that this practice of grounding into the deeper and more divine aspect of ourselves is what will carry us deeper into our truth and power (hello, Higher Self!) and wider into bringing goodness to the world.
Where as there is virtually no resistance within softening, allowing, and thriving. It is this open, infinite opportunity of energy that we need to grow with the least resistance, mess, and pain as possible. Because let’s face it, growth can be painful often times too.
So wherever you are at in your journey today, I ask you to see how you can soften, allow, and thrive within your life more, so that your path of growth can grow a little more vibrantly with a little more ease and grace.
