When thinking about the new things coming to my consciousness it is being drilled into my being that I create my reality, that I just need to match the energy to something to make it happen, it doesn’t exist if I don’t observe it therefore I create what I see, and to beware of my thoughts. I am being shown we cannot do it all alone and that we need to listen to those voices in our head and those subliminal messages we see flashing in our face on social media, the street signs we pass by, or headlines of books and articles. If this is the case than I need to learn how to truly embrace this reality because it is extremely empowering. Think about it. If we create our reality and all we have to do is wrap our brains around what we are looking at so we can turn around and unwrap our brains and see something different....then all we need to do is force ourselves to see something different and we can have the life we dream of. So why do we choose pain? Why do we choose the rough roads? Why do we allow the obstacles we create to consume us and emotionally eat at us? If we create our reality then why do we fall in love the ones who are not for us? Why do we set ourselves up for disaster? Why do we let other people’s actions and words hurt us? I am personally not a fan of pain at all yet I am in love with what I have tricked myself into thinking I can’t have….BUT maybe it isn’t happening that way at all. Maybe my higher self understands what I really want and keeps me from what I think I desire. Maybe my higher self is sending me all these social media messages and words of wisdom so that I can understand that the obstacle is to merely deter me into walking in a different direction that is best for me. Maybe if I was more in tune with my higher self it would be easier to tap into the energies that match my true desires and the highest good for all. It sounds easy enough…I just need to get out of my own way, So now…how do we get out of our own way? Is it simple? Well that depends on you. The easiest way to get out of your own way is to listen to the messages, the patterns, and the synchronicities and follow their advice. More than likely they may not be what you want to hear. You have your heart set on something going a particular way and you don’t want to hear it. BUT what if your higher self knows a more pain free route for you to take, or can see the bigger picture (because it is your HIGHER self) and knows that’s not really what you want. My advice to you is to tune out of your head and into your heart. Turn on your silence and turn off the negativity of the world around you. Go outside more, play and talk to animals more, create art, write, sing, and dance, express yourself….get to know you. As you detach from the crazy world around you and start to do things that are more natural and free spirited you will naturally begin to hear your higher self and see the messages because you will be in tune with yourself. Obstacles that are usually hard for you to face, or to avoid, are easier to tackle and the drama fades into the background. So get out of your way and start living the life you are trying to constantly manipulate into happening for you because that’s exactly what’s happening…you’re manipulating the things around you from objects, to people, to events and things thinking that you are creating what you want. The only way you are ever going to create what you want is to sit back believe in the moment, listen, and then allow.
