Seeing the Positive Side of "Trying"

 

Trying something new can be daunting.

It can feel like running up a hill, only to find one of those walls from "American Ninja Warrior" in front of you. You run up the wall and just as you're about to reach the top, you make a spectacular fall. In front of an audience, no less.

Have you ever felt like all eyes were on you - looking at whether you'll make it or not? Does the mix of emotion (excitement for what's ahead and fear of failure) stop you in your tracks, before you even try something?

The word "trying" was such a "bad" term to me that I even tried (ha!) to cut it out of my vocabulary for the past year. 

In my head, the word's definition was intertwined -- it was a mixture of "doing something knowing that it would end in failure," or "giving a cop-out excuse to someone to get them off your back." 

Like, "Can you get this to me by Monday?" "I'll try." No one likes getting that as a response! Or "Did you get the results you wanted?" "I tried." 

It wasn't until I did an intuitive reading for someone that the whole notion of "trying" came up. I had always thought it was a word that was so shameful that it should never be spoken again (just ask my husband).

But the Akashic Records always manages to enlighten me on things I thought I was sure of. 

The reading said:

"We recommend looking at the word “try.” We know it is something of a loaded word because it might imply trying something new and perhaps not meeting your expectations, it could mean trying something different and it teaching you things that you wouldn’t have looked at otherwise, and any number of emotions that may feel at ODDS with one another.

We recommend looking at the POSITIVE spin of the word -- that implies, experimentation, no attachments to the outcome, and a WILLINGNESS to test things out.  

Try things out - like trying on a new dress or trying on a hat. There is no harm in doing so."

The whole notion of "trying" having a positive spin was absolutely new to me (and my ego).

Apparently I had crafted such a perfect story about the word that I had prevented myself from truly "trying" -- to put things on and test them out, with my mind clear to see all the possibilities that could happen. And if it fails spectacularly, to have the ability to try again with the same possibility of success, as opposed to replaying stories of the future disappointments or failures. 

The reading even gave an image of a little girl trying out the monkey bars for the first time. Each time she tried and fell, she would pick herself back up again and try again.

All the response that came afterward -- crying, hurting, being disappointed in herself, etc. -- was just that  -- a response AFTER the initial "trying". I had associated the two things so closely that for a long time, any mention of the word "trying" meant that the mind was already projecting into that moment of it "not going as you had wanted or planned." 

Reflecting on 2016

Looking back at the past year, I definitely saw a mix of areas where I tried new things both AS IF I were trying on a new dress (and if it didn't work, I'd just try the next one!) and AS IF I were "trying something on" from my story of the future just not working out.

I tried holding meetups for the first time and had some moments when I felt like I was running up the American Ninja Warrior wall. Sometimes there would be a ton of sign-ups, then barely one. Every time I tried it, I iterated based on the results -- testing different themes, locations, dates, formats, tickets, and exercises until I got to the method that worked.

If I had given up earlier, then I wouldn't have met so many amazing people every month with shared challenges and hopes. 

I tried giving mini-readings to people I didn't know, even in group settings, and I saw the huge impact they had in people's lives and what they thought was possible. I started owning my gift even more because now hundreds of people have had little sparks of light catalyze their lives so that they can be truly free.

I tried playing the ukulele after not doing so for years (after my first time didn't go as magically as I had imagined) and now I can play three of my favorite songs! (Including, Train's "Hey, Soul Sister") It helps when all the chords are the same. :-)

Purpose Tip:

My tip for you is to reflect back on your 2016 and see where you tried new things from a positive place or from a place of "story." What happened? Were there any differences between those approaches?

Now, for the rest of this year, try something new -- as if you are trying on a new hat or learning the monkey bars. If you fall, pick yourself back up - know that any emotional responses are not at all associated with "trying" and then envision the beautiful possibilities again. 

Let me know how it goes! 

And I invite you to try out a mini-reading with me!

If you haven't experienced this before, whether you're excited or unsure, then take a leap of faith and try it out. I promise you that our conversation will spark clarity and confidence so that you can take the next step in creating a life of joy. 

Sign up for a complimentary 30-minute strategy session and intuitive reading (value $150)*. Hundreds of people have said my mini-readings are "profound," "gets right to the heart of what's going on," and "life-changing."

* Valid only for people who have never received a reading from me before!

Get the new year started off feeling empowered and clear. 

Focusing on the Opposite - Channeled Text

This is the second of a series of blog posts that are fully channeled texts from the Akashic Records (all knowledge, information, thought, and emotions in the Universe  -- a massive library of consciousness, if you will) that are meant to impart higher wisdom so that we can better ourselves and the planet.

For more information on my process, check out my previous post, Living a Greater Life, that explains how I do these channelings. 

**

First, I'll provide some context so that you understand how to apply this information in your life. My spiritual journey started when I learned about the Law of Attraction, popularized by books like "The Secret" and those written by Lynn Grabhorn and Abraham Hicks.  

The concept is that your thoughts and feelings create your reality. If you're into quantum physics, neuroscience, psychology, or spirituality, then you're probably aware that your beliefs, positive emotions, and intentions are all very important for you to experience the life you want. If you're not aware, then stay tuned for future blog posts!

Well, what happens when we use our best manifestation skills to create something we didn't want? That's called WORRY, ie, laser-sharp focus on one thing over anything else, except this time it's charged with negative emotions of fear. 

Maybe you're constantly worrying about making enough money and paying the bills, or you're worrying about being hurt in a relationship, or getting scammed by a business partner. When you are constantly focused on something you don't want out of fear (either because you experienced it in the past, or you're worried you can't handle it if you experience it in the future), it's highly likely that there are some aspects of your life that you want to change, and you feel stuck, helpless.

So how can you change it? I first came upon the idea of reversing your perceptions and focusing on the opposite of what your life looks like now in a book written by Sonia Choquette, one of my all-time favorite authors on intuition. This channeling dives into on what she calls the Law of Reversal and how you can use your awareness to help you reverse what you've created in your life and focus on what you DO want.  This text uses money as the object of worry, but it can be applied to anything else.

The only edits I've made are related to spacing and paragraphs so that you may read it easier on a webpage. The capitalized words are all part of the channeled text, for emphasis. 

May this serve you. 

Mirrored Dusk, by Jeff Badillo

The Law is Attraction says that whatever you focus your attention on is what is being created.

When you notice that you are creating things that you DO NOT WANT to experience, then by calling upon the Law of Reversal, you just focus on the OPPOSITE of what you don’t want and then that will allow the Universe to help you.

The key is that you put your security not on your ego or your partner/spouse, or your employer, or your friends or your business, but in the hands of your Higher Self and your Creator (God, Universe, Infinite Intelligence, Divine Love, Nature’s Knowing, whatever you want to call this collective consciousness that is intelligent and much greater than a single individual).

When you put your security into the hands of your Higher Self, which is your DIRECT connection to this Infinite Intelligence, you are essentially saying that you forgo your ego’s wishes to CONTROL everything or to FEEL as if it is controlling everything, and relinquish it to the realm of ALL POSSIBILITIES.

In the realm of all possibilities, the ego does not control anything. When something is controlled, it automatically means that it is LIMITED. In an unlimited state of being, NOTHING is controlled.

That means that in a world where you are a millionaire and then you lose all of that money and have nothing left to your name other than your living, breathing body -- 
and you are STILL at PEACE with yourself and your Creator -- then you have achieved a level of ONEness and spirituality that many different faiths talk about.

In the “real world”, that is, the world of your ego (which feels real, but isn’t), if that were to happen to you, you would be FREAKING OUT.

There would be no way that you would be okay with that because you are trying to control everything - you control where your money comes from, what it is spent on, who is in charge of it, who you are keeping it away from, why you are keeping it away from them, and all of these reasons come from a feeling-state that is contracted, of the ego.

When you are in a state of unlimited freedom, it DOESN’T MATTER if you are a millionaire or penniless.

If you are living, breathing, and on this planet with the AWARENESS that you are alive, then you have already won. You have already exemplified what it is like to be ONE with the Universe. This is present-moment living, and this is all that ultimately matters.

Yes, people talk about how you can use the Law of Attraction and manifestation to create wealth and money (you see all this talk of making 6-figures in a year or 7-figures in a year) but it is important to realize that NONE OF THAT MATTERS.

You can create it, sure, and exercise your Law of Attraction skills, but it ultimately doesn’t matter.

If that is your be-all and end-all, it does not mean that you are necessarily growing spiritually. It is not a guarantee -- it is more an indication that you have mastered the Law of Attraction, and have gone through the growth necessary in order to be in the state of RECEIVING.

The key is to embrace every moment, to know that the ultimate yardstick is if you were alive and breathing, no matter the financial situation, that you are grateful, full of love, and find joy.

The Law of Reversal helps you to fully be aware of when you are creating something that you don’t want.

Or if other people are in dire situations and you feel helpless, and unable to control the situation FOR THEM, then, call upon your thoughts to become the shape of what you wish for them to experience instead.

Focus on the wealth that you feel you have right now (whether it is wealth in the form of life, in relationships, in the experience of the sunshine), and be grateful. Know that your Higher Self is the one who can lead you to the state of BEING that you wish.

Once you are aligned energetically, you can actually see the sparks of inspiration and hear the messages that will come to you.

There are numerous signs and symbols all around you. It is a matter of being in the right state of BEING to notice them.

** End of Channeled Text **

Reflecting on this, I found that when I was stuck in ego-mode, worrying about money, new projects, relationships, etc, I was not able to focus my mind on what I wanted to create.

By being aware of where my attention was, and then consciously focusing on the joy of helping others, I was able to snap out of it and feel lighter.

I also had to be aware that I could reverse my situation, that it wasn't permanent. Everything could change in an instant. It was just my belief at that moment that speed, in relation to time, didn't exist. That was what would hold me back. 

Knowing about manifestation and reversing my perceptions have allowed things to happen much faster for me now. I feel like the Universe is guiding me to clients, partners, and collaborators, and the speed is incredible!  

I've had so many spiritual experiences and unbelievable synchronicities happen in my life to KNOW with certainty that anything is possible when we put our minds and hearts on it. This is an ongoing process of learning and exploring what this means for me, and I'm grateful to have these tools to help. 

How does this post resonate with your own manifestations and creations? Are you aware of aspects of your life that you want to change, and what its opposite could be? 

Living a Greater Life - Channeled Texts

This is the start of a series of blog posts that are fully channeled texts from the Akashic Records (all knowledge, information, thought, and emotions in the Universe  -- a massive library of consciousness, if you will) that are meant to impart higher wisdom so that we can better ourselves and the planet.

My Process

The process I use is the same as when I connect to the Akashic Records to know your soul's purpose -- I meditate, say a prayer to the Infinite Intelligence (God, Universe, Source, Divine Love, whatever you want to call it, however you may seek to understand it) that all information is for our highest good. Then, I use my clairaudience intuitive sense (clear hearing) to write down thoughts -- basically like dictation, word for word.

As you can see, the words are more poetic than what I might typically use, and the energy of the words themselves are very positive. They are incredibly powerful when spoken out loud.

In my own consciousness, it takes me days to perfect a paragraph. When I'm channeling, the words are beautifully crafted, stream-of-a-higher-consciousness, with no pauses for word-smithing. It boggles my own mind that such perfection and intentionality exists. 

I'm learning everyday from these channelings and I love it. :-)

The only edits I've made are related to spacing and paragraphs so that you may read it easier on a webpage. The capitalized words are all part of the channeled text, for emphasis. 

May this serve you. 

Abstract light reminds me of the greater consciousness that exists that all of us can tap into.

Living a Greater Life

Living a life that is led by inner peace and inspiration is completely possible in this world.

The only thing that you have to know is that this is a CHOICE. All other avenues are merely excuses coming from the ego that is attached to living a very limited life.

What does this limited life look like?

It is probably very familiar to you because every human being comes into this world as UN-LIMITED. Yes, they might be babies and can’t speak, but their frame of mind IS of complete expansion.

Imagine just how amazing it feels to be born into this world with your whole life ahead of you.

You have unknown dreams that you can create, you have artistic pursuits that you can bring forth, you have families that you will grow and shape into confident, human beings who are compassionate and feel the calling of service in their hearts.  

This is what beautiful expanses of time and space look like -- all in front of your very eyes.

The limited life only comes about when we allow external factors to start closing in on what is possible.

It begins when our parents tell us what NOT to do, because it can endanger our physical bodies, our lives.

This is all fine because it allows for us to learn how to navigate on the Earth plane (as opposed to the spiritual realm of light and love, which is where we all come from). Thus, there is nothing “wrong” per se with having parents tell us what not to do because of certain dangers that really do exist.

For example, getting hurt if you touch a flame or something sharp, getting hurt if you were to get lost and not know who to ask for help -- all of these things exist because we are still getting used to being in the physical form, and specifically on Earth. There are plenty of ways to get hurt.

The key thing to remember as parents is HOW we go about communicating this to our children. Does it come from a place of fear or does it come from a place of love?

One can love a child, and desire that it lead a healthy and happy life at all times. This should be the ultimate vision in their minds, as opposed to the FEAR of what COULD happen if they were to get hurt. It is this vibration of fear and uncertainty that then starts creating the limited world for you, as a child.

This is all fine and it’s important to EMBRACE this because everyone deals with this conditioning when we are young. So, acknowledge that we grew up thinking that there are dangers out there and that we love the feeling of health and well-being.

This is a different feeling-state than thinking that there are dangers out there and wanting to have security because if we don’t, then we would not know what to do, or have what we were searching for.

This is the beginning of how our world becomes limited. There is nothing wrong with “limited”. But it is a different feeling than EXPANSIVEness. When we are expansive, we believe and know in our very beings that all things are possible. When we have thoughts that focus on this, we are in a state of alignment with the Divine.

When we feel contracted, limited, as if something else is controlling and holding us back, then we are not connected to the Divine. Just being aware of how we are feeling and whether or not it feels expansive or limited will help you to consciously create from a place of expansion.

Remember that you are all creators who are made from the same fabric of the Divine God. There is nothing that you are not, for God created everything. 

This is the first of many teachings that are designed to help you become aware of limiting beliefs, because they stand in the way of a life filled with purpose.

Expressing your purpose is all about taking a hard look at what limiting beliefs were stacked on starting when you were a child, what beliefs serve you or no longer serve you, and which beliefs you want to let go of.

Thank you for reading this and know that you are loved, very much so.

***

So ends the channeled text. What does this bring up for you?

I know even when I interact with little children, like my young cousins, I absentmindedly say things like "Don't do this" and "Don't do that or else you'll get hurt" -- all out of fear as opposed to pure love.

There may be a mix of the two emotions combined. I know for certain that our worry is disguised as love, and vice versa.

It is up to us to find the best motivating factors to change behavior and to notice where fear has become a motivating factor when it doesn't have to be. 

It takes conscious thought and retraining of our mind to speak from a state of pure love and well-being. Noticing our limiting beliefs and our fear-based thinking is the first step.

I'd love to hear from you in the comments!
