We are probably all familiar with the feeling of going to a job day after day, that we really don’t like. (I was going to use the word “hate”, but as I used to tell my boys when they were younger, hate is such a strong and unpleasant word.)
That unpleasant job most definitely affects how you feel emotionally and quite often, how you feel physically. I am no scientist, but I am fairly certain that there have been studies that would reveal results that might confirm my statements.
There is a saying that I have heard many times in my life, referring to a job, that goes something like this: “Everyone has to take a bite of a shit sandwich.” It seems that in order to make your way in this world, you have to do something for (sometimes not very much) pay that is as unpleasant as eating shit. (Something that I have never done for the record, although I have had some jobs that I truly disliked very much; hate being such a strong and unpleasant word.)
I feel that as we are evolving and becoming more self aware, (some would say “waking up”) that there is a movement towards doing more of what you love to do, and maybe a little less of what you are told you have to do.
It is a slow moving potential shift, but I feel that is making it’s way slowly but surely into our conscious awareness.
“Hustle and grind” is still a part of our vocabulary but so is “do what you love, love what you do.”
I am very lucky to be able to do what I love, and love what I do, but that is also a relatively new thing. I have been doing what I love to do for a decade now, and there has been plenty of hard work, along with lots of studying, learning, scrimping and scrambling to make ends meet. There has also been a huge amount of trust and faith. Trust and faith in what you may ask? Myself, or rather, my inner knowing combined with God/Source. This is not about religion, or prayer, it’s about leaving old ideas and ways behind and stepping into self empowerment. Prayer comes in handy, but that is a whole other ball of wax to be visited another time.
This is about spending quality time with yourself, looking deep within at what stirs and moves you. It’s about letting go of what others may have told you you were good at, (or not) and stepping into the unknown a bit. It’s about taking some risks. It’s about trust. And faith.
Much can be said about the experiences of taking a bite out of that shit sandwich, and I am not saying that learning from all of that is not important, I am simply commenting on the possibility of that being an old paradigm belief.
I actually feel better emotionally, mentally and physically when I am working, doing what I love. It hit home the other day when I was feeling very out of sorts, and could not seem to shake the feeling, even after looking within at what potential external events were and had been triggering me. I had a phone client, and after her Akashic Record reading/Intuitive healing session ended I felt so blooming good. It was not an ego thing, it was a deep, inner feeling of well being and peace. It came from my work. I went into the appointment with deep gratitude for the opportunity to offer what I love to do, and ended it with the same feeling: Gratitude. I am grateful to be able to do this work that I love.
I get the same feeling when I am creating art, or channeling a message. I love to work with my Intuitive reading cards. I love this work, and because of that, I feel GOOD.
I also rest, exercise and relax when I need to.
The work I do is not 9-5, and sometimes it requires that I stay fully and completely in trust and faith that all will work out. But here’s the thing: So far it has. I am still here, my practice is growing, I am ready to learn more, and I am exploring new ways to create art. I’ve been doing this almost exclusively for a decade, and I am still here. I am doing things now (creating art, among other things) that I was not doing 5 years ago.
Hustle and grind? No, not so much, although I would say yes to a devotion to learning, and being comfortable with stepping into unknown territory. And yes to working hard to get there but without the “hustle and grind” mentality. Has it been easy? No, not always, but that has also been part of the fun, and it continues to help strengthen my own sense of self, and what I am capable of.
Love what you do; do what you love. It’s good for the soul, it’s also good for the mind and body. I believe in that.
The time is here. The time is here for you to step up onto the platform of higher consciousness.
Each of you carries courage, bravery, and strength; the aspects of your soul self that are necessary for the work at hand.
What is the work at hand? You are in it, Friends. You are in the midst of extraordinary change and awakening. You are witnessing the next generation stepping into an awareness of Who They Are, while concurrently acknowledging and owning Your Own Holiness.
Some are transitioning in order to allow others to step more fully into a deeper awareness of their own inner strength, courage, bravery and resourcefulness. It is an astoundingly beautiful view from our perspective!
The times that you all suffer horrible acts of violence are times of immense growth and awakening. Yes, these events are tragic in the sense of lives seemingly derailed for no reason, unspeakable destruction, and the chaos that arises from them; but we also remind you that every being involved chose to be there; chose to participate, chose to transition out of the physical, or change their physical structure in order to grow, affecting many. You are affected by these events, are you not? So you see, these are the choices that the soul makes, in accordance with other souls, in order to awaken humanity; usher in change; dismantle old structures manifested from old energy; to bring in light.
You are here to experience it. You are here to be awakened by it. You are here to create more of it. You are here to dig deep within your own self and find the compassion that has been waiting to pour forth. You are here to erase history and herstory by re-membering to be in the moment of Now, and manifesting from this moment. Now.
You are also changing. We have spoken of this many times in the past, and we speak of it again, now. Your physiology is changing. Your energetic structure is changing. Your DNA is changing. You are re-membering, and in the re-membering is the awareness of that which is ready to be shed in order to uncover what is not new, but original.
The existence you chose; the choice to become human is a trajectory of experience. You have experienced everything that there is to experience, and each experience opens the door for change. In each of your incarnations as a human, you added to the “information” that collected in your DNA, your energy field and your Akashic Record. And in each of your incarnations, you became one of your own ancestors, effectively bringing into your physical existence your information filled DNA, energy field and Record. You then learned from this information. You taught others this information. You bought into this information. You manifested your reality based on this information.
All of that went exactly according to your plan.
You, as a collective, have created your current state of existence. The world you perceive is one of your own manifestation.
You are now in the time of the Great Awakening, so you are re-membering all of this, and as you are reminded of your choices, you are becoming conscious of the entirety of your soul, and the fact that you are existing in more than just this physical body. You are multi-dimensional, multi-sensory beings, and you are awakening to that fact. You are remembering that you are all One, and that you are the very same as That Which Created You. Source. God/Goddess. Infinite Being.
This is where it all begins to get very interesting.
There are no coincidences. There is Divine Timing. Nothing is random. As you acknowledge your Divinity and own the expansiveness of your soul, you are realizing all of this and it causes a quickening within. This quickening triggers profound knowing, AHA moments, intense bliss, deep grief, heightened emotion, fear and compassion. The old adage “when a door closes, another one opens” is becoming very apparent. Many doors are now opening, and many of you are taking advantage of that; some by transitioning out of the physical, others by making major life changes.
All are affected.
In our last message we invited you to Be Here Now. That is always a good place to Be; Here. Now. That is the place from which to navigate the flow. And by navigate, we mean to be in the flow, not swimming upstream against it. Swimming upstream against the flow used to be doable, but it will become harder and harder for you because you are not who you used to be, from an energetic viewpoint.
You have changed. Evolved. Your frequency is higher. Your energy patterns are different. The energy and information that you are interacts with all other energy and information in a new way.
Is it any wonder that life is not as it used to be.
And that is a wonderful thing Dear Friend, because you chose to be Here, Now, and to help usher in that change.
2018 is a time of transition. You as a collective have created these times of transition, using holidays and other historical events as markers. They are markers to your own mind and ego, set up at the soul level to remind the self of these times that are ripe for transition. You (the collective) have repeated historical patterns, at times like the new year, to decide to make changes in your life. It has become a time to set goals and resolutions.
The first thing that we wish to remind you is that you do not need to re-solve anything. There is nothing to solve. Making resolutions is a way of stepping back into a repeated, historical pattern hoping that you do it differently this time.
We invite you to set intentions from the moment of Now. Allow yourself to be present, without the energy of your history, without judgment of how things turned out in the past. Be here, now, and step more fully into the void, the unknown, the vastness of unlimited possibilities, and from HERE, set your intentions.
From the infinite place of the unknown, while BEING, you are not led by the ego, you are fed by your soul. Your soul will never lead you astray, or into the past to repeat old patterns.
Intentions that are manifested when you are Here, Now, are aligned in Truth, and are not hindered by old energy.
You are in a time that is ripe for transition.
You are witnessing change. You are a change agent; one who has brought upon this time of change. You are in the chaos of the old energy being stirred up and filtered out, making more room for the new energy to settle. The new energy is what creates the fertile soil for new growth; the growth of Peace. Chaos reigns currently, and that is why you are here, now. You chose to be a part of this life altering shift in the conscious awareness of humankind.
Despair is old energy. Hopelessness and fear are what your ego is used to.
Choose to embrace Who You Are, welcoming your soul’s guidance, listening and heeding what the heart whispers to you. Wallowing in the old energy of fear, despair and anger only fuel more of the same.
Find the compassion that is the foundation of who you are and nurture it. Use this marker in time, setting your intentions of Peace and Compassion, and watch in wonder as they meet like thoughts, manifesting the change that you incarnated for.
Change is a part of your human landscape. So is duality, and the perception of evil, or darkness. Your conscious thoughts and beliefs have created the world that you live in, and your conscious thoughts and beliefs will be what create the fertile soil of positive change that helps you to free yourself of the pattern of repeating history. (History is neither good or bad, it simply IS. Please click here to read last month’s channeled message: http://thefigleaf.net/the-importance-of-being-here-now/.)
You are here to remember
that you do have control of what you think, therefore of what you manifest. You are a powerful Being. You are an Infinite Being, Being Infinite. Embrace this Truth as you align in the Present and step out of your history.
Peace to You in 2018 and Always.
