STRENGTHENING YOUR SPIRIT
We are but a single drop of energy in a vast sea of life, and we are that sea as well. As science presses forward, it is beginning to not just understand but develop the measuring mechanisms with which to confirm what we already know: we are more than our bodies, hearts and minds. We are energy. We are spirit.
“Spiritual energy flows in and produces effects in the phenomenal world.
Like children learning to walk, we plough ahead in our journeys at first surprised at our own abilities, then anxious to get underway with what we desire only to feel anxiety and trepidation when we suddenly realize how disconnected we truly are. Confused, hurt and lonely we spend countless years, dollars and agonizing tears seeking to find and rebuild that connection. But the disconnection is both a fallacy and a useless choice. We can no more severe our connection to our divine source, our own spirit and the spiritual energy of the universe and continue one single minute anymore than we could remove air from our lungs and expect to keep breathing. Our lives reflect this choice to suffer disconnection, in the difficulties we experience and the uneven ebbing and flowing of our abundance.
The hype over secrets of manifesting being revealed has, for many, created even more problems than successes. We’re told to visualize and strive to keep a positive outlook. If you only truly believed you would truly achieve. You get in life what you value...if you only really wanted it, you would be creating your heart’s desires. With each new expert we latch on gratefully for this, certainly, is the missing component we’d been looking for. We’re able to embrace some of the concepts of manifesting intellectually, and even a bit emotionally. But when the resources we feel we can consciously control aren’t enough to force our desires into being we’re lost. There is true strength in them, but even combined they represent only force, not our innate power.
We see clearly those without blocks in the very areas we wish to create attracting vast wealth, legendary love and wondrous bounty. But the moment we come up against a block immoveable by conscious force alone, we feel cheated and confused. How are we to manifest our heart’s desires when our true hearts reside in the vastness of our spirits, that from which we are most disconnected? Though we ignore, deny or don’t understand that it is there all along, our spirits are the means that tie together all aspects of our being. We simply ARE spiritual beings living in a physical existence. We need to believe in order to see, but without connection to our spirit, we simply can’t “see.”
“This seer is the spirit, the expression of eternal being.”
The TRUTH is that thinking and feeling positively are wonderful, and important components of creation. But if these were the only ingredients needed for successful manifesting, come on! Wouldn’t you already be living in that mansion, dating that supermodel, wearing an impossibly small size and reversing the aging process while counting your millions? It is said that Believing is Seeing, all we have to do is shift our perspective. Consciously managed shifting will create some changes, some abundance that’s true, but it’s not nearly enough to finish the job. We’ll grow weary and exhausted long before we’ve manifested our desires unless we are able to embrace the power of our spirits. For without reliance on our spirit, without faith, it IS difficult to create the fullness of our abundance.
“Where the spirit does not work with the hand, there is no art.”
Leonardo da Vinci
You have within you a power. It’s at your disposal every moment of every day of your life. The power of our spirit, our energetic bodies, far surpasses the power of our subconscious minds which already operate on a plane and in a dimension that we can’t fully consciously fathom. Our spirit energy reaches well beyond that, and connects us to each and every living thing as well as us to them. It is through this energetic network that our manifestations are brought to us. Our spirits reach out and the universe answers.
We’re all looking for answers. And the more we seek answers, it seems, the more we get confused and anxiety producing information. We’re cutting off our own senses because we just don’t understand, we can’t process. Can you really learn how to release and manage your emotions easily? Yes. Can you reprogram your mind to operate more effectively and productively. Yes. Can we really seek to understand, feel and work with all our energy, our spirit. Definitely. We need only find the tools that resonate with us and that we will use, along with making the choice to use the tools persistently until we clear away the stuck energy that binds and blocks. Once that energy is released and freed, we have no choice left but to feel the connection that has always been there and always is: that connection is Bliss.
Bliss is the state of absolute perfect being. Bliss is a state of recognition that our spirit is connected to the Divine Universal Energy, expressing as joyful contentment. While it is joyful, it is not an overly excited state at all! When we're not used to feeling connected to Divine, to our spirit, and or we've been dealing with troubles, even touching on that connection is such a relief that it can feel exuberant. But while there is joy in the Divine, once this becomes familiar to you again, as it was for you as an infant and into childhood, you'll come to find that state of joy is indeed a state of neutrality, of equanimity.
From the state of bliss we find our full potentiality available to us. From this restful, yet happily anticipatory state, we have all our resources available to us with which to create. It’s as if the car is turned on, the engine humming along idling along, the car now completely ready to go wherever we want. The car’s full power is available, and ready to be engaged as we need it.
“When you follow your bliss...doors will open where you would not have thought there would be doors, and where there wouldn’t be a door for anyone else.”
Bliss is not a state of hyper activity, nor is it a state of excited agitation on any level. When we’re engaged in either negative or overwhelmingly positive emotions, excited and agitated, we’re not in a state ready to access all our resources to use as we wish. Instead, we either have limited resources or we have to work hard to regroup and gather our resources so that we can eventually use them.
Babies exist in a natural state of bliss, unless outside influences sadly affect them. They simply are. If you can, watch a small baby in action: they simply move from the state of bliss through whatever emotion or activity that is in the present moment and then right back (okay, sometimes not so quickly!) into their natural state of bliss. They breathe with their whole bodies, and they are at every moment aware and ready to launch with all their might into giggles or cries, whatever they need at the moment.
For most, bliss is no longer is our natural state. We don’t breathe deeply with our entire bodies as we were build to do, and we live in a hyper-extended state of emotional agitation. Since we’ve lived this way for so long, we can both no longer access bliss without effort nor do we feel comfortable in bliss for very long!
We have to get up and DO something, or we have to live through yet another crisis. Hyper-active emotions, thoughts and actions...crisis after crisis, challenge after challenge has become our norm. Though it has become that which we are used to currently, it is neither our natural state nor is it our most effective state. If we were built to operate effectively and efficiently in a state of constant agitation then we’d have come into the world that way. How awful would that be! Obviously that was not the intended design, and thankfully that’s not the best way to live.
But how do we return to our natural state? Though at first it will not feel comfortable, may not feel like anything at all, and as such may be incredibly challenging for some...we can indeed reverse the issue and return to living in bliss.
“Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes.”
Carl Gustav Jung
The way to return to bliss is to balance our energies, clear our blocks, neutralize our traumas and reprogram our subconscious mind to support both these clearings and our desired results. In clearing our stuck energy, we simply return to the innate knowing of our spirit, of our power.
And in that knowing we Tap Into the PowerTM to create in Living Harmony.
