Whenever we put ourselves out there, be it by opening a new business, performing our music, posting a selfie, showing our artwork, telling our life story to others, or being vulnerable in a romantic relationship, we take big risks because we open ourselves up to the unknown, to something that may not always feel good or safe.
But, these risks are necessary in our expansion as human beings and co-creators with the universe. Not only do we open ourselves up to bliss but also to precious learning experiences that only make that bliss even more possible and more intense.
The trick is not to get consumed by the darker aspects of the contrast we can experience when we are open. Why give away our power to someone (most likely a small minority anyway) that judges and doesn’t appreciate what we have to offer? Compassion towards those who judge is crucial because, as we do sometimes, they are acting from their past wounds and this has nothing to do with the person that is their target.
By doing what we love and expressing fully who we are (this may change over time as we get to know ourselves better), we are living in our highest potential. That is all that matters! The more we hold this positive feeling and we focus on how good we feel, we will not be distracted from our path. No one has power over us, we are our own masters. Even if we were imprisoned or hurt, no one has power over our thoughts and happiness. We can chose to be happy in the harshest circumstances.
There is no need to “work hard” to please others or to be dependent on how they feel about us. If we go with the flow of our authenticity and joy, we will attract others who resonate with us and find value in what we have to offer. The love energy will flow freely, unconditionally, and without demands. Decide to create a beautiful life for yourself today! Nothing can stop you! 💜🌸🙏🌸💜
Most people find romantic love to be the best channel for the feeling of universal oneness and for accessing the source of all creation. It is our glimpse into how it would feel to merge with the universe, or God. We first must experience life through duality, through the female and male perspective (yin and yang), know darkness and light, in order to merge with another. In romantic relationships, we are forced by the universe to deal with our unresolved issues, to explore our shadow, to get to know ourselves better – they are our best teachers and motivators for change.
There are many possible ideal romantic matches at any point in time depending on our state of self-knowledge and consciousness (our energetic vibration and awakedness). The universe is good at giving us signs and synchronistic moments to help us recognize these potential matches but we have to be aware of them. We might meet people that are potentially a good match but they might not be ready to deal with issues that come along and could be resistant to change. They might choose to go for what is safe, away from their expansion because expansion is scary and requires one to be willing to make a change.
Changing oneself is terrifying and can be very physically and emotionally painful. It is like shedding old skin…it is an abrasive process. It can involve grief from loss of the old self-image. Sometimes it feels like death and most of us are resistant to this feeling. We must be willing to go through the death of the ego, of a false and conditioned idea of who we are, to be reborn as new people, willing to be vulnerable to love and be loved. 💗💛💚💜
We are constantly co-creating with the universe. Before we are born, we agree with the universe on what our purpose in life will be but we forget it when we are born so that our life has that crucial component of free will. The universe helps us remember our purpose by guiding us using signs and synchronicity. The trick is to listen to the universe by living consciously.
Interestingly, we are often resistant to our purpose and we don’t live consciously enough to notice the guidance. The universe reminds us in the form of unsettling events such as an illness or a heartbreak. Yes, we can be so oblivious to how we are treating ourselves that life itself has to reflect back to us the damage we are putting ourselves through. In these situations, it feels like there are higher forces looking out for our well-being – we are gently guided along until a time comes for the universe to give us a harder push.
It is not that the universe judges our actions as negative and does things to punish us, it is loving and compassionate in its essence. It merely pinches us so that we can wake up and realize what we are doing. This pinch is perhaps the best thing that can happen to us because we are often too slow in learning our lessons. The aversion to pain we associate with these experiences aids us in our expansion so we can remember our life’s purpose.
