In order to facilitate our own spiritual growth with ease and grace it helps to be aware, really aware, of when we’re resisting moving to the next level of our growth, and then having intention about making that shift.
What are we actually resisting?
In my exploration the only thing that’s real is Love, and that’s the only thing to resist.
Knowing that is helpful to me because I can make a more conscious and loving choice. That helps break down the resistance, and I can do that all day long by looking for the more loving choices.
It also helps greatly to be aware of what we might be reluctant to step into. In my classes we look at what we must become in order to have the next level of expansion.
In order to have the next level of growth and expansion in your career, what must you become? Perhaps you’re being called to become more organized, or more patient, or more kind.
In our relationships, what does the next level of growth require? Perhaps it requires us to have a greater capacity for intimacy, which means we have to drop the sarcasm and the defensiveness. Perhaps it means that we have to be willing to say how we really feel without blaming anyone for our feelings.
It does feel like there are levels of growth. The more I shed what is false, the more actively those level distinctions are blurring and it feels that I’m becoming more my TRUE Self.
Beyond the body and any other false identity.
I can remember very well moving through a particular shift where I really was giving up the blaming and resentment, the grudge holding and practicing forgiveness full on. I began to feel markedly more free, and more like my true Self. I was so surprised to find out I really like being my true Self because I’m not what I thought I was.
I used to believe that I was fundamentally bad and wrong, to the core. When I became fully committed to forgiveness, that false view of myself fell away. It was such a relief to let it go. I felt so much lighter on my new “level” of awareness.
What is it that you feel you must become in order to embody the next level of growth you most desire in your life?
The way to get to where we’d like to go is to give the Spirit the heavy lifting of figuring out HOW, instead we declare our spiritual aspiration and intention and we ALLOW ourselves to be guided by Spirit as to the choices that we must make to have the transformation we’re calling forth.
There’s so much we can do to help ourselves and ease our way. We can learn these things. It’s part of the process of remembering to Love ourselves and care deeply for ourselves. We’re so worth it.
When we Love ourselves, we’re loving everyone.
All boats rise on this tide of Love!
