Consider the possibility that just perhaps you have chosen this lifetime as the one in which you wake up and become fully self-realized. Then everything that emerges in your experience, everything that has ever happened, must have in some way been geared towards your growth, expansion and evolution. Even the events you may have labeled as bad or unwanted actually held some kind of hidden blessing for you, some sort of opportunity for you to release a lesser perception and to become more fully yourself. Now as you align your perspective to see this, and as you approach your day to day life with this insight, you are in that moment aligning yourself with the fundamental order and harmony of the Universe, which indeed is geared towards constant growth, expansion and evolution. You are no longer resisting the flow of Life. Instead, you are saying “yes!” to your soul’s invitation for you to awaken to the magnificent and luminous light-being that you are.
There is a seed of greatness within every single one of us. This seed has been placed there by the Creative Intelligence before time began. It is always ready to grow, evolve and unfold in complete alignment with our unique gifts, skills, and talents. As a result of our self-reflective awareness this seed requires us to consciously tune into its sacred vibration. In other words, we release ourselves from the false belief that we are at the mercy of things in the seeming external, and we attune ourselves to our Authentic Self—that part of us that always knows and embodies the truth about us. This journey requires a willingness on our part to grow, a commitment to always becoming more fully ourselves, and a complete surrender to the fundamental order and harmony of the Universe. In so doing we sour right past any and all limiting beliefs and lesser perceptions into an embodiment of our true nature of revealing nothing less than the face of God in all that we do.
Embracing our uniqueness is one of the most powerful things we can do. When we no longer compare ourselves to anyone else, we free ourselves to be available to the highest and best good for our lives. The way that Life is seeking to express through each and every one of us is totally unique. Remember how Ralph Waldo Emerson put it? “Imitation is suicide.” So today, be aware that just as there are no two snowflakes that are exactly alike, so too is your life a totally unique expression of Infinite Potential. Embrace what it is that makes you unique, cultivate it, and then give it freely to the world.
Relationships are the great mirror of the self. Ultimately all of our relationships are a reflection of our relationship with ourself. Relationships, at their highest level, function as wonderful tools to facilitate growth and expansion. When we let them, they can teach us to become more loving, they have the ability expand our perception; relationships can be a wonderful doorway into living a life of service, a life of generosity, a life of giving and sharing. Today, regard all of your relationships as your relationship with your Divine Source. Remember that everyone, you included, is a sacred, magnificent, and unique emanation of absolute beauty and infinite potentiality. When you see others as who they really are, you create the space for the highest and best of all to be revealed.
Deep within lies that part of us that is completely untouched by human experience. It is that part of us that is fully conscious of its oneness with All That Is. As we make accessing this deeper dimension our daily practice, we find that we no longer get carried away with whatever appears to be happening in the seeming external. Instead we are enveloped by a peacefulness, a divine reassurance, a knowingness that as we remain anchored at the center, we will most assuredly be guided into the highest and best for our lives. We let go of old limitations, and we make ourselves available to the boundless good that is always seeking to be revealed. My invitation today, remain anchored at the center. And let the high vibrations that emanate from within carry you into new heights of experience in all areas of your life.
As a being of self-reflective awareness, you have the ability to consciously choose what thoughts you will think and what beliefs you will hold. I invite you to release any thoughts and beliefs that do not serve you, and replace them with ones that do. It’s really that simple. A belief is merely a thought running on auto pilot. Change the thought, and over a period of time you will shift the belief. Now of course there’s this miss-perception in the world that beliefs are based upon external conditions. In other words, you have a condition or circumstance, and then that condition or circumstance causes you to take on a certain belief. Yet that is a distortion of the way Reality actually works. Conditions do not create beliefs, beliefs create conditions! The thought, the belief, always comes first. Consciousness always precedes form. So in other words, there’s no excuses here for why we should hold onto beliefs that do not serve us. Today, examine what beliefs you hold. And then uproot the ones that are not in alignment with your limitless potentiality as an individualized expression of the totality of Life—a unique emanation of God, here to express and reveal the magnificence of the Divine Presence in a wonderfully unique way.
In a world where one of the popular mainstream beliefs is that our good lies outside ourselves, realize that you are here ultimately to contribute to the elevation of the collective consciousness. As you live your life simply knowing the Truth, as you embrace your true spiritual identity as a cosmic being of infinite proportions, you begin to radiate an energy that is picked up and felt by those around you. You lift the vibration. You become a vehicle through which peace, love and harmony may express. Yet be careful to not fall into the trap of trying to change others. Our task is to never try and change anyone, but to simply know who they really are as unique and individualized expressions of the Infinite. As you practice this level of proper seeing, you are in that moment holding the space in consciousness for divine right action to take place. Simply put, without trying to make something happen you are being a beneficial presence. And because you are not trying to make something happen, you are allowing yourself to be used by Spirit in a powerful way.
Will you stand in your spiritual power today? Spiritual power does not mean power over others, which is not really power at all. Spiritual power begins with you recognizing and embracing just what a luminous and powerful being you actually are. When you do, you will never again fall prey to the false belief that there is something outside of you that holds any power over you. The Spirit of Life has poured the entirety of itself into you. It has entrusted you with all of its limitless capacities, its sacred qualities and creative faculties. Now all the forces of Heaven are waiting to see what you will do with what has been given to you. So today, let go of acting as if you didn’t know who you are. Decide to take a stand for the sacred qualities of love, peace, creativity, well-being, beauty, and harmonizing prosperity. As you let the I AM Presence within you shine, it will guide you to exactly where you need to go in order for you to become the embodiment of your highest potential.
As you learn to accept the fact that there is no external world other than as the out-picturing of your thoughts, beliefs and expectations, you will have stepped back into your power as a limitless multi-dimensional being, containing within you the totality of the All-Good. Vedanta reminds us that “I am not in the world, the world is in me. I am not in the body, the body is in me. I am not in the mind, the mind is in me.” This points to Consciousness, pure Spirit, being the Ultimate Reality. Yet let us be careful to not get lost in thinking of this as some complicated mental exercise. We are not talking philosophy here, we are talking about taking this on as a way of life. So let’s make it practical. Simply practice becoming aware of yourself as the observer of your life. Notice yourself as the I AM Presence that is independent of the content that is flowing through your field of awareness. Begin to live from the center, and you will see that you are never at the mercy of what is at the circumference. You learn that you have the ability to always choose what quality of consciousness you want to bring into each moment. And as you allow the higher qualities to flow, you will witness your life transform into the miraculous.
