This morning I read a quote on facebook that said – “Achievements is so 2016”. Long ago already people talked about how New Year’s resolutions are so passé.
What do you think?
What do you feel?
What do you desire for yourself for this year?
What if it wasn’t about accomplishing more?
What if it wasn’t about wanting more?
What if it wasn’t about fulfilling the dreams and desires?
Yet again maybe it is...
...First things first. What is this year about for you?
In this current era, the Soul is the boss. For eons we have lived our lives guided by our mind. The mind is fabulous, very intelligent, smart, logical, rational, something we rely upon very often. However it is not the, be all and the end all. The mind has its place and that is exactly it. It is not the mind intelligence, guidance, and wisdom that is the highest guidance.
What if the Soul had the highest guidance? What if your Soul knew exactly how to map out your journey, your year for 2018? What if your Soul knew your whole life’s purpose, what you have come to do? How many people especially at this time of the year come to ponder and re-visit the purpose of their lives.
Recently, I came across people sharing how this change over period had been highly emotional. There is so much that is happening in the world, individually and therefore collectively. It is when we have true alignment that our life can flow more easily. Events can unfold with great ease and harmony. It is in those moments when we feel like all the doors are opening. Can you recognise some of these moments, milestones or times you have had so far in your life? I am sure you can.
It is moments, times and milestones like these that have had the alignment of our Soul heart mind and body. The purpose, the role of the Soul is to give us guidance. Our Soul has the experience of hundreds of lifetimes as well as the experience, knowledge and capabilities, skills and expertise.
The role of our heart is to receive the guidance and messages from the Soul. The role of the mind is merely to process this information. Literally the mind is the processor. This is where many of us have gone astray before, because we have given the mind great power than it is actually able to execute.
“We are shaped by our thoughts; we become what we think. When the mind is pure, joy follows like a shadow that never leaves. “
Just like when a person is in a right job, career, relationship, they feel happy and like they are part of the world and can contribute the way they are meant to. Same applies with the hierarchy or the alignment of the Soul heart and mind. The mind is put in the place of the boss. It is given too much responsibility and it doesn’t know what to do or how to deal with situations.
Therefore this time of the year is to go inward and seek the guidance, the messages from the Soul. Receive them in our hearts. Examine them in our hearts. Opening our hearts to what that means.
What do the messages, the guidance, the wisdom mean?
Then the mind can process what are the logical steps for execution. What are the critical milestones we need to create to pass so as to reach the goals, the intentions and aspirations for this year.
In activity that I have done for many years now in relation to this is an exercise of ‘stop, start and continue’. When you have the guidance, the direction, where you want to head to, it is useful to assess your current situation. What is it that I need to stop doing in order to course correct and align with for this new direction.
What are some of the things that I need to start doing to get me on the journey, on the path in the right direction of this intention, this aspiration. What is it that I absolutely need to continue or it could be – what is it that I am okay to continue with, while heading these directions. So there is two different angles to the continue category. And sometimes continue maybe that I continue, yet I need to amend it slightly, change it slightly how I am doing, what I am doing.
These are like the bigger buckets how to reframe, how to redirect the physical journey, the emotional journey also as well as the mental journey in order to align the whole physical journey with our spiritual journey, as that is the ultimate alignment and that is the alignment of Soul heart mind and body.
Some of the pain that we can experience when we are feeling unhappy and dissatisfied is when the physical journey does not align with the spiritual journey and we feel like we are straddling in two different camps.
Therefore aligning these two journeys is very important, so that we can embody literally and experience the oneness, the unity within ourselves and in every aspect of our lives. It is important to consider every aspect of our lives when we do this ‘stop, start continue’ exercise. So,
Step 1 is to go within, seek the guidance.
Step 2 is to assess the current situation and then set the new directions.
Third part maybe to consider what support you wish to have for yourself for this journey. Let’s face it – none of us can do this journey of life alone. We need people with us, around us, alongside.
“I cannot even imagine where I would be today were it not for that handful of friends who have given me a heart full of joy.
Let's face it, friends make life a lot more fun. “
Charles R. Swindoll
So who are the people?
What are their activities that you choose for yourself as your support to ensure you have love, compassion, kindness as well as truthfulness to witness your journey as well as to help you get back on track, in those times when we may waver, when we may doubt our journey or have fears come up that are important to come up, so that we can step up to the next level.
I deeply wish for you to be able to live your life in a purposeful, meaningful way, in a way that brings the deep alignment of Soul heart mind and body.
May you live a Soulful life.
I love my heart and Soul
I love all humanity
Join hearts and Souls together
Love Peace and Harmony
Love Peace and Harmony
Be bright, be happy, be you in 2018
With love and blessings
