So, this is my attempt at giving one a bird’s eye view of my process.
Since so much of it is an evolution that begins with meditating, asking for answers, guidance and just amazing peace—I am not sure how to organize this or share my process.
The basic tenant is to always stay in touch with what I value most—never waiver from that knowing. My three core values; the ones that I cannot live without are Creative Self-expression, Love and Freedom. When I find myself at odds with something in my life, I immediately do a check in with those three values. Are they missing? Where are they in the moment? Chances are that the “odds” I am feeling are there because I have lost touch with my values. It is not about what someone did to me, said to me, didn’t do to me or for me; none of that matters. It is about what I have let get away from my heart consciousness—what I have lost touch with or sight of—just sitting in my heart awaiting my return.
The exercises and meditations in Unlock Your Heart are designed to assist in this very process I describe. So, I go back to the book—I re-visit what I already know in my heart—I just need a little reminder and do the processes, again and again, even though I am beyond familiar with them.
During this exercise in returning to what I already know, I become very still and my listening is so sharp that it almost feels as if it is not there at all. It doesn’t feel like listening anymore. It is just so quiet and yet there is a slight buzzing—not annoying at all, just a warm presence. I almost always wait until this silence envelops me and then I ask my question. Where have I lost touch with what I value most and how can I find it again? I don’t ask what I am supposed to DO about it—I focus on how I can adjust who I am BEING.
It is in the being that the evolution and shift will take place. It is not always immediate and sometimes, I wonder, did I get through? Are any of my guides, masters, God or Divine Mother listening? Of course, I know the answer to that—They never cease to listen or love! So, I wait, I pay attention to that still, small voice that speaks in such a gentle manner—that knowing, that intuitive sense and
I PAY ATTENTION!
A huge assignment for me! I am an artist, a dreamer, and lover of story and fantasy. Paying attention does not come easily for me…
The key here is the attention I am paying is not to my mind chatter, my head talking at me—the attention is on the inner—the heart sending me messages that are deeply subtle and yet, incredibly powerful—they are just not noisy. If it feels or seems like noise, I know I have gone back into trying to “figure it out”.
That is what happens to so many of us when we are attempting to create positive changes in our lives. We get in our own way trying to figure it out!
We were taught that is how one solves problems. It is almost a knee jerk reaction—figure, plan, strategize—go to the drawing board—all that is okay—and sometimes necessary—but it is not the first step.
I find I must begin in the silence, the quiet and stillness within my heart consciousness where
Clarity lives! Creativity lives! Love and freedom live!!!
That is who I am as my core values. I am creative self-expression, freedom and love. When I am manifesting from that truth, I am an excellent motivator of others, I am clear in what I have to say, I can hear and feel love from another, and I am free to be those values. I am not struggling to discover my gifts. I know my purpose is to be a way-shower and inspirer to other seekers of their truth.
So my path has been finding ways to BE those values in my daily life. It is a challenge. I do work at it - not by mental work but by heart work.
I am now going to stop here for a while and BE quiet.
I want to make sure that what I share is genuine and will perhaps help someone reading this to delve into their personal heart message. Please share your comments!
I will be back!
