Spirit guided to write about different aspects of balance. We are naturally balanced when our Spirit's lead us.
I didn't learn until adulthood that our hearts grow in utero before our minds take form. While learning about how we develop in utero... I also learned our hearts have a brain and neural network connections. When it is time our heart brain sends out the signal for our brains to grow!
If it seems far fetched to you, that our hearts are to lead us, perhaps knowing they have led all along will help this new understanding and awareness.
Being grounded and balanced with our Spirits leading is the necessary foundation in our next phase of human evolution.
We have become so out of balance and addicted as a culture, numbing our Souls, trying to buy our way out of the void that is gnawing at us. We create busy lives to avoid feeling that we don’t have enough or perhaps we have too much... we focus on money, looks and status, climbing ladders to success, getting stuck in the superficial swirl of our social collective.
Avoidance, numbing, distracting instead of stopping and listening to the call of our own Soul. What do I truly need? Quiet? Maybe to be a baker instead of working with computers? Perhaps working as a gardener working with your hands in Mother Earth… your willingness to follow this call would naturally ground and balance you. Or to simply Stop and heal what has wounded you… tugged at your heart… been nudging to be seen? There are many ways to find balance in our lives. Being balanced now as you read this may look very different than being balanced a year ago. What is needed to ground and balance you tomorrow may be completely different than today.
I was sharing with Guthrie how the Universe was at play with subtleties when we were at the park today. A lot of times Crows and other birds interact in palpable and obvious ways… showing support and protection for this work. Today was the gift of subtlety. There is great power and depth in subtlety and our alignment with its vibration helps us to discern and intuit the subtleties in our life and our choices with great precision. I have learned to walk openly with Spirit and to honor whatever is happening in my life and to honor whatever I am feeling. My feelings are guidance... I still walk in accountability and ownership of myself and my choices 110%. I have learned to do this through blood, sweat and tears. The place I am now has been earned and I am so excited to teach others. Deep alignment with ourselves and the Divine is our birthright and it is for us All… Spiritual Truth.
Spirit was also showing me to encourage people to remember the truth… we came here to experience a variety of feelings, relationships, experiences and life lessons. The Truth is not a criticism, when delivered in a just and righteous way.... grounded for each other's best interest.
One of the elements I was shown to expand on is a common perspective that we should be feeling good, light, happy and positive… and not be feeling uncomfortable, upset, bad or having healthy shame and anger, even when these feelings are authentic.
Striving to feel artificially good and positive instead of feeling and honoring our authentic feelings is a shallow and in-congruent way of being… this in-authenticity becomes our evolved persona. The "appropriate" mask for the World. When we live rising above what we actually feel... dismissing our guidance which is speaking to us about our lives and ourselves, this has been termed Spiritual Bypass by John Welwood.
Our feelings could be potentially alerting us to something within our lives or ourselves which may be out of alignment or compromising our own integrity. This does not mean our feelings alone lead our lives. Quite the contrary, our feelings are our navigation system deep within... alerting us, trying to help us wake up or to see what needs to be seen.
It is our Higher Selves, our Spirits that are to lead our lives... leading with integrity, truth, discernment and our integrated wisdom. Ultimately, we are all connected... a concept many think of as Oneness.
Most of us are in this life to experience Oneness through our uniqueness and varying levels of separation and individuality. This is where I have witnessed a lot of confusion seems to arise.
We have a tendency as humans to be black and white in our thinking, so it can be especially confusing when we align with the our Soul nature... Oneness. The deep realization that we are all One while at the same time holding the deep awareness and context that most people came to experience varying degrees of separation and individuality… and varying degrees and means of connection. This has been one aspect of my work with clients. We have unique charting and ways of being… this is on purpose and this is serving us All. Time to wake up to the truth deep within… the deep knowing all is Sacred.
When people become out of balance with their understanding of how we are all connected in Oneness… they usually go into Identification and Identifying with those around them. Identification is, I unconsciously feel you are me … boundaries of the individual self are blurred.
Note... this can also happen when the ego becomes narcissistic. Or in co-dependency. When I start Identifying with you what happens to you affects me as if it is happening to me... as if we are one… you are an extension of me... there aren’t healthy boundaries along with empathy and understanding that we are unique individuals having our own experience.
Be open to seeing how Identification is not a healthy response or a healthy way of being in relationship. When our perspective is grounded in Spiritual Truth… we understand that we are connected and that we are each unique separate beings.
A truth which enables us to be more easily led by our Higher Selves. In our natural healthy flow offering empathy, compassion, understanding, deep regard, respect, boundaries, honoring each other and each other’s experiences with Love... this becomes our norm... we become balanced and fluid.
