There is a tremendous amount of change going on in the outer world, in our personal lives and globally, that appears to be unusual, outside of business as normal. From the perspective of the mental body, it can seem like chaos that is taking us nowhere or even backward. We might find ourselves asking, out of doubt and fear and frustration, “What’s the game plan?” But remember, that’s just a perception based on the outer illusion of what’s happening. The more we resist what we perceive in the illusion, the more challenging it is for the energy to move easily and effortlessly. The more we hold onto, “That’s not the way they used to do things,” or “That’s not the way it’s supposed to be” or even “That’s not the way I want it to go” the more we close ourselves to the magic and miracles we can create from our Higher Selves/ Souls. By resisting the change on the outer, we are really just feeling the effects of our resistance to the changes on the inner. That’s where the real resistance is. By holding a fixed idea of how something should be, we are cutting off the energy and potential of how everything could be, of how we could experience the change- with Freedom, Flow, Ease, Joy.
In allowing, we can start with giving ourselves and others permission to follow their path, wherever it takes them. In allowing, we can give ourselves and others permission to make choices even when they don’t appear to be the highest choices. Give yourself full permission to be who you are in this moment, even if you feel that it is not your best self or the self you desire to be. Give yourself permission to be who you are whether it’s the part of yourself you like or the part you don’t. You will get there, but only if you let go of the shame and judgment and unworthiness about where you are now. Allowing yourself to be who you are now is the key to being who you desire to be. Remember, you can allow yourself to be your shadow self without actually acting out on it. We’re not talking about doing whatever the lower self wants but about the inner state of allowing. We can’t heal the parts of ourselves that need to be healed if we don’t allow them to be, but instead stuff them down or try to hide them. This allowing of our shadow selves is a key step to healing.
True allowing isn’t just giving yourself permission, but also giving others full permission to make their choices along their path. We don’t know what issues others are working on and we certainly don’t know the best way for them to bring those pieces to their awareness and heal them. Their Souls know what experiences they need for healing.
Detachment is being more and more in your witness self as you make your choices in life and not taking what happens in your own life so personally. We still have a tendency to punish ourselves mentally when we aren’t able to manifest the absolute highest frequency of the divine plan or when things shift and the highest plan itself changes. We either blame ourselves for not doing a good enough job or we blame our Souls for giving us wrong information. The Plan changes because we change. Detach from the need to always know exactly why it might have changed and trust in your Soul to have that wisdom. Detach from the way in which the plan might have changed and let go of the idea that one path was better than another. Every path leads to the Buddha.
Remember, the Divine Plan is not a what, it’s a why. The actual plan is not about an action plan, though there are sometimes some physical action steps that are part of it. The Divine Plan itself is not the new job, new partner or new home. It is not about the physical results. Those are the physical vehicles or tools in the physical realm to help you work with, understand and be the feeling states. The Divine Plan is about coming into higher frequency states of being. The Divine Plan is a loving opportunity, not a command or a directive! Detach from all outcomes in the outer world.
If you look at what is happening in our national politics it may appear on the outer that the current administration is reversing the changes made by the previous administration. Some people are happy about that and some people are not happy about it. But the belief that we’re going in reverse is the illusion! We are not going backward and we are never going to go backward. The illusion is that those previous changes meant that we had healed all the issues and that all of our collective energies were ready to move forward! But we weren’t all ready and we hadn’t made all of those shifts on the inner, so we’re seeing a reflection of the lower-self group consciousness going into fear and putting on the breaks. But, from the Soul’s perspective, this just allows us each the opportunity to identify and clear what we’re still resisting in moving forward. Regardless of who you voted for, what party you are registered with or no party at all, regardless of what vision your mental body has for how things should be, your Soul is part of the co-creation of what is happening. You are a part of what is happening.
Remember, that we all volunteer to play different roles in the outer world as part of the co-creation. Just because certain people have raised their hands to be the tool for helping us to see what still needs to be healed, does not mean they are the cause of the block. They are just the person in the physical world bringing it to our attention. We are each holding onto our own blocks and as long as we remain in judgment, it makes it more difficult for us to acknowledge and heal those blocks.
