As our world seems to get more and more chaotic on some levels, I have to remind myself that the opposite side exists as well in the form of peaceful protests and marches surrounding equality and all-encompassing inclusion. It is time to wake up as an empowered human being and realize that your thoughts, words, and actions have a ripple like effect in the world around you as well as on your mind/body/spirit and life experience. I experiment with myself in little ways. When I am walking to the store and back, I will note if I hit the green lights or red lights on my journey. More often that not, if I am in an elevated mood and thought pattern, I will not have to wait at a red light; the light will be green with a walk sign so I can be efficient. If I am feeling troubled about something or am distracted with lower thought forms, I will have a red light show up. I read this as ‘not as much flow’. This is just a small observation that I have noted. I could very well be wrong about this but regardless, it is a reminder to pay attention to my inner world.
This pandemic has been a good reset for me. I am getting back to regular meditation twice daily. I am more mindful of my thoughts and pray consistently every day. I am appreciative and am keeping a bullet gratitude list of good things that happen to me, am conscious of the beauty of spring and nature and how grateful I am to live in a peaceful part of the world. Exercise is a must for me and I love that I have more time for it. I am trying out new plant-based recipes so I know what is a good one to pass on to my patients and best support them. I am feeling good about what I can offer for my services and am even hosting a free meditation weekly for my patients if they need some extra support. I feel the flow of well being which feels wonderful.
I think that the world that turns up for you in your every day experience can be reflective of your inner world. I have had plenty of trouble managing my moods and self-destructive behavior in my early years and I am not immune to the negativity that grips our collective consciousness on some level. I am an empath and I don’t doubt that I sponge these things up at times. Some moments I can feel almost drowned in negative thoughts as I struggle to appreciate good things around me when dark thoughts directed at my imperfection taunt me. You really have to ground and meditate right now at times to rise above these instances. When you tap into a good flow, the world that shows up is really magical. Therefore, it is important to set your intention of the day you wish to experience and do what you can to prepare in the way of positive thoughts, prayer, exercise, meditation for your day. That way you might experience a more magical environment turning up around you. Try it for yourself!
