How we see ourselves makes all the difference when it comes to the kind of experiences we will call forth and co-create. When we see ourselves as separate and apart, we cannot help but call forth experiences that will reflect a sense of fear, doubt, and worry. The good news is that as soon as we begin to see ourselves the way we really are as infinite and limitless spiritual beings having a human incarnation, we shift our experience away from fear and we allow the higher quality of grace to take over. As we know and see ourselves as whole, perfect, and complete, we are in alignment with experiences that will reflect this truth back to us. Now here is the really good news: you have complete control over how you see yourself! So today, choose to see yourself the way you really are. Live in that space of higher awareness, and then go forth and allow the joy of proper seeing to be your guide all throughout the day.
Separation-consciousness oftentimes brings with it a subconscious tendency to constantly look for things that need to be fixed, some new problem that needs to be solved, a new obstacle that needs to be overcome. This type of consciousness thrives on conflict as it will oftentimes operate from the proposition of, “I have drama, therefore I am.” Yet as we enter into the upper realms of awareness—through our dedicated and consistent spiritual practice—we become re-acquainted with that part of us that is at peace with things just as they are. Challenges may still arise, yet we no longer inhabit a seemingly random and chaotic world of fear, doubt, and worry—all of which are the byproducts of a mistaken belief in separation. Instead, we live with ease and grace in a world of spiritual beauty, a world of harmony, plentitude, absolute well-being, and limitless opportunity. This world is always there, for it all that is Ultimately Real. Yet it requires a shift in perception on our part away from mainstream-consciousness into a soulful embrace of the transcendent. It is a shift away from fear into a greater embodiment of Love. And as we choose Love over fear, we watch with sweet delight as all areas of our life are transformed to more greatly reflect this Heaven-Consciousness back to us.
The more we awaken to our true, authentic, birthless and deathless Self, the less we tend to look to the external world for validation and fulfillment. As we become more interested in what’s happening within than we are in what’s happening without, we find that nothing in the so-called without holds any power over us. We remember to live in that sweet natural state which is joyous and authentic freedom. In moments of profound insight we may realize that within us is a boundless storehouse of good that is constantly seeking an outlet through us—the infinite gifts of the Spirit that have been freely bestowed upon us, the sacred qualities of the All-Good, all of it is fully present now, all of it is already here. It is merely awaiting our conscious recognition of this—which we may attain through our spiritual practice, those precious moments of intimate communion with the Ineffable—so that we may then set it free through our diligent and consistent demonstration of loving-kindness, generosity, and sharing from the heart.
Spirit loves you so much it has imparted the entirety of itself into you. In other words, within you are all of the divine qualities and creative capacities of the Infinite. This is the meaning of having been made in the spiritual image and likeness of God. Yet as a being of free will you always have the option to choose. You can choose to embody and express your true nature, which includes but is not limited to love, joy, geniosity, ingenuity, creativity, peace of mind, well-being and generosity. Or you can choose to block the flow of these divine qualities by holding on to lesser, fear-based perceptions. Today, make it your practice to meditate on the higher qualities that are within you seeking to be set free. Decide that you are going to consciously tune into them and invite them to express through you. As this becomes your priority, the windows of your perception are cleansed, and rather than waiting for a blessing to occur, you realize with sweet delight that you are the blessing!
