FRACTAL ENLIGHTENMENT: “Spontaneity — Why It’s Better Than Having A Plan”

“We must be willing to let go of the life we have planned so as to have the life that is waiting for us.”

~Joseph Campbell

 

Be born, go to school, get a job, get married, have kids, have grandkids, get old, die. That’s the plan right? Well, so we think. Unfortunately so many get stuck in this cookie cutter idea of what life is supposed to look like, only to live in constant frustration and disappointment that their life looks nothing like the standardized version.

Life may drift them more and more off course, and they keep trying to control the helm by bringing it back to the life they think they should have, like the characters on TV.

Unfortunately much of their life is spent in the struggle trying to get back “on course”, or what they believe is “on course.” So much time is wasted in this struggle to no avail.

Only when a person just gives up, surrenders to the tides of their life are they able to see that their idea of how things were SUPPOSED to go was causing them a constant frustration because they were never actually enjoying anything about the present moment, or the way things WERE going.

Who says things have to go exactly like that? If things aren’t going exactly like the social norm does that means that things have gone “wrong”?

The fun and adventure lies in the spontaneity, in the suspense, in the uncertainty. Of course it’s fun to have goals and aspirations, things that we envision ourselves doing and ways that we can offer our gifts and talents to the world, but in order to become more open to possibilities and opportunities that are awaiting us, ones that we never expected were possible, the most important thing we need to do is stop planning our futures so rigidly. quote-life

We must allow ourselves to relinquish the need to have absolute control over every single situation, small or big. We must let something else take over, something that knows way more than we do….

“When I finally learned to let go of having to totally control everything around me and let my life unfold, I was stunned by the results. How could I have ever thought I could outsmart the Universe?”

~Geri Larkin

 

The problem with trying to control how every situation will go is that we cannot always see the bigger picture in every situation. We have no idea why we didn’t get the job we applied for, or why our partner decided to leave us, or why the car wouldn’t start on our way to work.

All the ego knows is that this situation was “bad”, we experienced some sense of sadness or pain, and because it does not desire to feel uncertain, or pain, sadness or vulnerability ever again, it must plan. It must control how everything in the future will go, so as to never feel out of control or open to chance ever again.

However, so much of our life is dependent upon things that we cannot control completely. The weather, traffic, how other people behave, whether or not we get the big promotion, who we meet and how we meet them, are all things that we cannot control 100% of the time.

But the question is, why would we want to? Having total control over every single situation is not only an exhausting endeavor for us but is also a stifling experience for the people in our lives. The result of this fear of losing control is that we limit the universe in being able to direct us to paths that we may not have ever thought of on our own.

As soon as an opportunity or possibility is presented to us that doesn’t fit into our box, or rather our plan of what our life is supposed to look like, we turn away from it and label it “bad idea”… bad idea because it’s not what we think life is supposed to look like.

But if we look at our life from a broader view, from the big picture perspective, and openly accept the fact that we didn’t get the job, or we were dumped by our partner, or our car breaking down made us late for an appointment, we may in fact realize a better job opening was coming along, a new healthier relationship was just around the corner, or our car breaking down prevented us from being involved in a huge accident on the highway.

So just because a situation is not what we WANTED to happen, or what we planned on happening does not necessarily mean that it was bad.

We can look at life in two different ways, one is that things don’t go as planned and that’s a bad thing, or we can look at it as if we live in a universe that always conspires for our greater good, so when something goes “wrong” or unplanned, we trust that it was for our greater good, always, even if we never see exactly why. The first option leaves us in constant resistance, and angry, bitter and stressed out constantly… and the second one leaves us grateful, accepting, and excited everyday about what that day may bring.

“At times the world may seem an unfriendly and sinister place, but believe that there is much more good in it than bad. All you have to do is look hard enough. And what might seem to be a series of unfortunate events may in fact be the first steps of a journey”

 ~Lemony Snicket

 

If we envision anything for our future selves it should be that we are the best version of ourselves possible. We are healthy, and happy and doing something that we love to do and surrounded by people that love us. If we make the main focus health and happiness we leave ourselves open to all the many paths and roads and trails that one might take to achieve these goals, instead of getting too attached to exactly how we think life should happen.

Think of the universe like the navigational system in the car, we know the end destination (us being the best version of ourselves), but the HOW we get there is always up in the air.

We may take a million left turns, take the scenic route or we may take the shortest route possible, only to find a happier more fulfilling destination mid-way through. The one thing that we can depend on though is that the universe never lets us get completely off course.

There is never too many “wrong turns” that the intelligence of the universe cannot re-route us back to being on track to our final destination. In fact, there is no “wrong” turns at all, there are only routes that allowed us to enjoy the view a little longer and take things a little slower, or routes that got us to our destination very quickly. Either way, we realize the fun was in the unexpectedness of the adventure.

JENNIFER MOREAU: “What We Can Learn From The Original New Agers”

Keeping in mind the original “New Age” movement was a huge and quite successful psy-op… not all spiritually-oriented authors from past eras were shills for the cabal… 🙂

“I am feeling more in alignment with the New Age thinkers and information from 20 to 30 years ago and even before that. I feel they were authentically bringing forth information for the good of humanity and spiritual evolution. They weren’t trying to get followers (some were) or subscribers. They weren’t looking to be the next big thing, or a millionaire. We all need to use our discernment skills when seeking information.”

~Jennifer Moreau

 

Trust is from the heart

Charles Bukowski wrote about intelligent people being full of doubt and stupid people being so sure of themselves. I think we all contain a bit of both. The difference would be allowing and incorporating new information into your own personal story.

Osho said something that has always stuck in my mind when he said, “Belief is from the mind, and trust is from the heart. “Belief is a poor substitution for trust”.

As we begin to bring more things from the unconscious to the conscious, we open more of our inner knowing. Our inner knowing or our truth is continually changing as we evolve. Sometimes it happens quite quickly… you may not be same person as when you got up this morning or even 5 minutes ago before you contemplated some new theory. Sometimes it may take a bit of time to have that ah-ha moment that breaks us through to a new perspective. It just might take 3 people explaining the same thing in different ways but you all of a sudden get it. I remember taking a behavior modification course for a whole semester in College (I did get a B) and it wasn’t till I heard a 20 min lecture on the subject in University and the 4 months just clicked in my head… Ah-ha!

I have been thinking a lot about the resources for spiritual growth I found when I began researching. I went through my “bookmarks” and I have found that the links to a lot of the websites no longer exist. A friend of mine recently said to me that the ancient knowledge still holds true today. Which I agree. Ancient texts still do contain a road map for spiritual evolution.

I am feeling more in alignment with the New Age thinkers and information from 20 to 30 years ago and even before that. I feel they were authentically bringing forth information for the good of humanity and spiritual evolution. They weren’t trying to get followers (some were) or subscribers. They weren’t looking to be the next big thing, or a millionaire. We all need to use our discernment skills when seeking information.

Discernment comes from trust, from the soul, from how it feels. If something doesn’t quite feel right, then it probably isn’t. But, if the information comes into your awareness down your path again then it might be worth taking another look. Maybe, just maybe it needs more attention… maybe from another source, maybe the explanation will be different or you may read the same thing again and this time you get it. Doesn’t matter what “it” is. Always be open to seeing things from a different level of understanding. Some things may require an understanding of some other things before the ah-ha moment.

Maybe the world is ready to hear what you have to say in your own unique and authentic way. Maybe your own unique and authentic expression has not found it’s way to the surface yet. Trust me when I say there are folks out here that are all doing their best from their own level of understanding. There are just as many levels of understanding as there are perspectives and you just never know who may need your kind of authentic from the heart explaining.

I send this out from my heart and I am grateful to all those who show up to support me. Thank you.

CHRYSILLA LEWIES: “Forgetful Lately? Here’s The Surprising Reason Why!”

Do you feel like you are losing your mind, forgetting simple details? Rest assured you’re not, it’s actually one of the ascension symptoms we are all currently experiencing.

You can’t seem to remember what someone told you yesterday or maybe it just feels like your mind is becoming a sieve. You start thinking that you might need Memory supplements, your friends suggest reading more to challenge your mind to keep it active; and It’s true, we all need to use our muscles to keep them healthy. The brain is a muscle, but we don’t seem to use it as much as we use to. Let’s face it, technology has taken over a lot of problem solving tasks, but this is not the reason we are losing our memory, it is actually the complete opposite.

Our consciousness is gradually splitting away from the physical world and we no longer need to rely on our physical mind as much as we have done in the past. We are moving into higher states of consciousness and moving into the era of knowingness.

Forgetful Lately? Here’s The Surprising Reason WHY!

There is no better time than the present to practice to trust your internal guidance and to follow your intuition. By sitting in quiet meditation and getting to know how the real YOU feel — your essence as a pure energy being. You will find the balance between the heart and mind as you become more aware of the changes happening within you. You will start to notice how your feelings are pulling you into the direction you are meant to be going. These thoughts might be as subtle as:

  • “I knew I should have taken that exit on the motorway!”
  • “I got a feeling that I should have taken different route home, but didn’t”, or
  • “I don’t think I should go to this event, something doesn’t feel right.”

When living in your thinking mind and you are analyzing every decision you make or would like to make — will lead you to miss crucial opportunities. If you do, it might lead you to look at something and instinctively where you will know that something might happen before it actually does. You may get a feeling of knowingness and you get the opportunity to follow and trust your intuition. But do you?

When you are consciously thinking, you can feel the mind as it is working, analyzing and compartmentalizing. Sometimes you get home after a long day at work and you are tired, but not because of the physical work but the mental thinking you have been doing. Moving into the era of knowingness, your mind will no longer have to work as hard. Your mind feels empty and it feels like you’re not retaining as much information as you used to. Think of it as you storing the information in ‘The Cloud’.

The knowingness will come to you in a manner where you will be able to automatically read a person by just being in their auric field or connecting to them through thought. You may experience having a knowingness of what they are feeling without being in their presence. You may be so connected to someone that you will immediately know when something is wrong, and you will be guided to pick up the phone and call them.

The key is to Trust.

Enhance your natural abilities through practicing psychometry, meditation and or any other techniques that will allow you to use your senses more, instead of your mind.

Intuition Group Exercise

One person should draw shapes of all kinds on different pieces of paper.

Shuffle them and then give one to each member in you group.

No one will know what was drawn but you.

Take turns, and tune into one drawing.

Guess by describing what you see.

A minimum of two can participate and an ideal group size of 6.

 

Have Fun!

ALEXANDER PAPAGEORGHIOU: “The Secret to Creating in 5D — Releasing”

Throughout our lives so far, we have gotten used to living, or surviving, with fear as a mechanism to protect ourselves against the world, courtesy of our egos. As we enter and begin to settle in the Fifth Dimension, one of the hardest parts of the acclimatization process is learning to let go.

This has become overused as a term since we are often told by spiritual guides to let go, to breathe, but this time it is more complex, and more rewarding. We have gotten used to being on our own, throughout the Third Dimension construct, but there has to be an elementary change that must take place: TRUST. This time we have a partner that merges with us to be part of a mechanism we now call Conscious Creation: the Universe.

In order to create we need to make two elementary changes. We need to learn to trust in the Source completely and to believe in our ability to create. Then, we need to learn to let go of all the things we cannot control, on a complete basis, to the Universe so that it can deal with this obsolete energy and discard it. The longer we hold onto it, the more we meddle with the energy that is supposed to come down and replace it and we stall the process, making it difficult for ourselves to be in acceptance of the abundance of waves that flush our bodies and our reality in this tumultuous and rewarding time. We are not creating alone. We are visualizers, we anticipate and create the reality that we wish for. We must learn to believe in this ability and to have full faith that after we release it the Universe will do its part. This is a complete partnership that relies of both sides to fully create.

We need to erase the past view of ourselves as physical bodies at the mercy of the dense world. We are infinite light beings existing in infinite dimensions with a loving Counterpart watching over us and rewarding our release of the past and the archaic.

We can never create fully until we have accepted that we are creators and that we now have a symbiotic relationship with the UNIVERSE, which is the physical manifestation of the Creator. Secondly, we must accept that, as opposed to all the lifetimes when we have been swallowed by fear and anger, this time around, two constants have changed: We are AWAKE, and we are NOT ALONE: We are LOVED. That is the most powerful tool for creating and understanding that manifestation is not only willing things into being. We have to tear down all the blockages of the past, the desire to rush things, the anticipation, the fear that we will not get what we want, the meddling of the ego, etc…

For example, in the past, one may have tried to create and things weren’t moving, so they started meddling, trying to accelerate the process, fear started creeping in, and the ego started dictating that either this was not meant to be, or that the person had to take more action. All these actions we lead by FEAR of not accomplishing this. There was no TRUST, no LOVE, and no RELEASE. This process was stifled repeatedly until the person gave up and let it go. After some inner changes, the situation would pop later having taken form. Unfortunately, it took a toll on said person and the fear remained.

This really doesn’t have to take place this way anymore. This is the first time we are fully awake in millennia. We are creating, we are revealing our true selves to ourselves, and we MUST stop being afraid and start trusting, in the process, in our power, in LOVE, and in our GUIDANCE and the UNIVERSE.

Let go completely and let your light find you again and take you where it needs to. Whatever you are enduring, the last layers of pain, fear, anger, it is all for the best and you really should not fear anything anymore. The light is here and it has started shining within you. Trust yourself, the process, be patient and know that you loved more than you can fathom. That is your mantra in the difficult moments.

Love,

Alexander

ARIA BELLA: “Luck Is Yours To Hold”

“Luck is yours to hold, cherish and use for the greater good.”

~Aria Bella

You know how some people just seem lucky? Always seem to land on their feet no matter what? Always seem to get what everyone else wishes they could have? This kind of luck is available to anyone.

You just have to have faith and learn to tap into it. You have to believe in what you are capable of. Know that going for this or that, is not just for selfish reasons – that it is to help your family, friends, strangers.

It may seem like it is wholly for you, but it will spread out to those around you when you allow it.

You have to surrender to putting one foot in front of the other as you are guided to, not in a controlling way, in a way of detachment, knowing you are being guided by something bigger than you.

True luck comes when you are confident you are going to succeed. That you want it, not just for yourself, but for the good of mankind. No matter how indirect it may seem.

Luck is trusting in your abilities and the abilities of the universe to provide and guide.

 

“I know I am lucky and can succeed at anything. I draw luck to me”

 

Today, put your faith in the universe, and in yourself and dream away and let that luck find you.

Till next time… keep walking your spiritual path xx
