Love to All! I received a message a couple of days ago that’s been percolating in me and I thought I’d share. Monday I had a change in holiday plans that was upsetting, and this tiny fortune fell from my wallet in nod-from-the-universe style….
It was odd because I didn’t remember ever receiving this fortune, but I instantly recognized it was important for now. I wanted to contemplate REFINEMENT. I did a quick search, and all meanings seemed applicable.
I delighted at this insight because I realized instantly that REFINEMENT is the essence of our growth and awakening process—of life. We are layered in our physical vehicles from birth with so much from our family, ancestry, culture, society, from history—all that’s been held and impressed/suppressed. We are like living libraries of Earth, our bodies tell stories and create opportunities. Life experiencing itself through various imprints and pathways, always striving to unwind and return to simplicity and purity—to remember its true nature as LOVE. In all of our strivings, it seems enough that we honor this REFINEMENT and our ongoing potential to demonstrate its qualities. To see that this is a process of clarifying and eliminating, to see that we already contain within ourselves all that we need. We don’t need more of anything else, we will actually become more REFINED by holding onto less.
Knowing this is the way, shouldn’t we welcome loss as a necessary and vital part of our process? Can we trust that whatever doesn’t work out for us in the moment is also an opening and opportunity for us to see a deeper part of ourself and what we are holding? The shift for me on Monday brought up a lot of my childhood patterns and expectations. It helped me to see not only what mattered to me, but my judgments of it, and my beliefs that it fell through because I didn’t deserve it. It prompted me to sit with an emotional reaction that was recognizably deeper and attached to older circumstances. I decided I would honor this part of the REFINEMENT process by ALLOWING my thoughts and emotions to fully surface, and to observe what (if any of it) was aligned to TRUTH in the present moment. I was able to observe how I got here, and what story was running that attempted to imply that the power lied outside of myself to shift into HARMONY and ALIGNMENT with the PRESENT. I was able to see what energy was left in the pattern playing out, and to see that I was able to move through it a lot more quickly. I AM confident that CLARITY was reached. A little rainbow on the water..🌈♥️
I AM also choosing to create from a different platform. I AM GRATEFUL to have this awareness and to have the space for another experience to surface. My mind wanted to take me back to the stories but my HEART helped me to FEEL the expansion that was occurring. I brought the circumstances to prayer and pulled this in my oracle prayer book, “Get Over It” by Iyanla Vanzant.
It really is our attachment to our ideas about things and circumstances, and our attempts to control according to these attachments that cause such suffering. We are in an ongoing state of REFINEMENT. Our goodies are already HERE, there’s nothing outside of us that dictates or determines our potential for HARMONY in every moment. WE ARE life in this process of loss and mutation, of purification and recognition, of elation and creation. We can relax into this process knowing that it’s our resistance to the flow of our life that is our real enemy. We can trust that we are guided in this ongoing process of returning and becoming who we are naturally. We are here to demonstrate our willingness and ability to offer our best in each moment, to share what we’ve learned, and to embrace our highest natural expression.
Often it’s in releasing what we are not that we come home to ourselves and discover what we truly are. It’s there waiting and often overlooked by us if we were taught to grow up in value or comparison to something outside of us. In response to this awareness I refined my intentions to allow for a new script, one that is based on the worth I know from my heart, not the fears that drove my past. I again got familiar nods and witnesses from universe as I spoke my TRUTH. This is ongoing and always around if you open up and start to look.
I was also gifted with an opportunity to experience a deeper understanding of one of my gifts. I released some of what was in the way of me knowing myself more.🥳 This is the gift of REFINEMENT, and on the eve of Thanksgiving I thought I’d honor my recent experience with it, and satisfy the suggestion to DEMONSTRATE REFINEMENT IN ALL THAT I DO;) Best wishes to all and may you receive the gifts of GRACIOUSNESS and REFINEMENT for the days ahead. 🙋♀️♥️🤗
“AWARENESS— An aspect of consciousness unique to all life forms. In a human being, awareness can be divided into three main layers, although in reality they are all a single awareness—physical awareness, emotional awareness, and mental awareness. At low levels of frequency, human awareness is confined to the human body—physical awareness remains rooted in survival and fear, emotional awareness remains rooted in desire and drama, and mental awareness remains rooted in comparison and judgment. As you raise the frequency throughout your being, your awareness becomes more REFINED and shifts from the local environment to the cosmic. Physical awareness becomes DIVINE PRESENCE, emotional awareness becomes UNIVERSAL LOVE, and mental awareness becomes SILENCE and WISDOM.”
…Definition of AWARENESS from “The Gene Keys” by Richard Rudd
