Being comfortable with our process of unfoldment means that we have given ourselves permission to be happy right here and right now. We no longer live under the illusion that the future will be better than the present moment, that when such and such happens we will finally be happy. Rather than projecting our happiness into the future, we choose to be happy now. We engage in the practice of radical gratitude, where we relinquish any sense of taking anything for granted, and we simply become tremendously grateful for all that is in our lives now. We scan our lives, on the lookout for anything that we can appreciate. This raises our vibration, it shifts our perspective, tonic chemicals begin to flood our body temple, and we find ourselves in alignment with the fundamental order and harmony of All-That-Is. We become a candidate for insight, divine right action and synchronicity to take over our very existence. This is a sweet way of being, indeed!
Hello and welcome to our first mid-week inspiration mini-podcast!
Yes, this is a surprise, and hopefully a pleasant one! :) This is a brand-new series here at Awakened Life called “Awakened Living: Your Spiritual Power.”
These are short audios that remind us of our true, magnificent, and inherently divine nature. Short and sweet, just over 9 minutes in length, these are ideal for receiving that little dose of inspiration, empowerment, and sweet remembrance as you go about your week. So sit back, listen, and be reminded that… Life is good!
This first installment is titled “We Live In A Loving Universe.” Simply click the link to listen, and feel free to come back and share any insights or feedback you may have.
A little side note, these will be released on Wednesdays! And I had actually recorded this yesterday, but technical reasons had delayed it for a day. But starting next week, look for these to be out every Wednesday.
Peace and Blessings!
At first it might seem counter-intuitive to approach Life with the awareness that everything in your seeming external world is merely a reflection of a corresponding state of being that is within you. But the truth is there are no exceptions to this. The outer is a perfect reflection of the inner just as a mirror will always give you a perfect reflection of your physical likeness. All change must first be created on the inside before it can be experienced on the outside. As you engage in your daily spiritual practice of meditation, affirmative prayer, tuning into the highest vision for your life—as you do this every single day, regardless of whether or not you feel like it, you will experience a profound shift in your perception. No longer will this seem counter-intuitive, it will seem quite natural. The speed at which your thoughts and beliefs manifest quickens, because trained thought is considerably more powerful than untrained thought. You begin to see more and more correlations between what it is you have been thinking about and what shows up in your world. Truthfully, prepare to be shocked and amazed! Soon all you can do is to simply say, “Thank you, Universe! Thank you, God! Thank you, Life! I am exceedingly abundantly blessed!” In fact, begin to say this right now! Start there, and let the rest unfold.
A wonderful question we might ask ourselves from time to time is, “What is my intention?” When we ask this question, we invite what may have previously been unconscious to now come into the field of our conscious awareness. Today, as you go about your day, as you tend to your activities, be mindful of your intentions. Is it your unconscious intention to remain guarded, holding onto some old perception that is limiting? Is it your intention to hold back, to not fully express who and what you are out of a false sense of inhibition? Needless to say intentions of this nature are the ones that we want to let go of. Let it be your intention to evoke only the highest and best in each new Now-Moment. Let it be your intention to radiate pure and unconditional love, boundless joy and luminosity wherever you go. Make it your intention to see only what is Real, True, and Eternal. Practice consciously setting your intention, and you will create the conditions for your life to be revealed as nothing less than the Divine Masterpiece that it truly is.
Affirmation: “Today I am conscious of my intentions. My intention is to call forth only the highest and best. My intention is to see clearly. I see with my Inner Eye and I behold the Presence of Love, Beauty and Intelligence wherever I go. My intention is to see only God.”
Give yourself permission to examine your life, and simply notice any areas in which you may find that you have been holding back. Become aware of any old perceptions that do not line up with your true nature. Then, express gratitude. Be grateful because you have become aware of these old perceptions. You have become conscious enough to notice them, and once you are conscious of them they no longer control you. And in the spirit of gratitude and appreciation, fully aware that you have grown as a result of all your experiences—the ones you’ve labeled good and the ones you’ve labeled bad—choose to simply let go of all that is now no longer serving you. Step into the awareness that nothing has any power over you unless you allow it to, and realize that you can let go of anything you no longer want to hold on to. Today, claim your divine freedom as a free and infinite spirit. Determine to live your highest potential, free from anything that does not serve you when it comes to that. Your experiences invariably shift as you shift your perceptions.
