It’s very easy to say what’s the point. To see what is happening in the world and believe that there is no point to living a good life. Or any kind of meaningful life.
In conversations over the weekend I’ve been conscious of that urge we all have. There has got to be a point. Whatever we do has to have a meaning. I’ve written about this before. The human need for a purpose. Then when life swamps us it can be all to easy to loose the plot, point or purpose. And sink into despair. Looking outward at the world I might find it easy to say that all the good works people do are outweighed by all the bad things people do. Why do people of strong beliefs keep trying to make a difference? Why do I feel like I want to help and support?
That’s the point really. I believe we all want to make a difference in others lives. But I also believe that the first place we have to look is inward. How can I be peaceful to others if I’m not at peace in myself? How will I work as part of a community if I don’t recognise and embrace all the different parts of my inner community? All the different ‘me’s’ who want my attention. Even the shadow parts. Because they are there. That darker side is a part of each of us. Yet we often try to ignore it. A community embraces all opinions and feelings. A peaceful community knows that the point is live and let live. I can agree to differ with myself or my community when I find that centre of peaceful energy.
Isn’t the point that if I can create peace in the centre of my being then I can share that out to the wider world. Taking the energy of peace and using it to deal with external relationships in just the same way as I have balanced my internal reality?
That means I can get past the need for a point. It’s quite a thought. A challenge really. Does my life have to have a meaning? Isn’t it much more important to me to live an authentic life? Then I can respond to the changes of circumstances that wash over me by staying calm, fearless, secure in myself. I find that being calm, really feeling calm, removes any need for a point. That a purpose becomes a mechanism to judge myself by. A reason to be harsh or aggressive with myself when I feel that I’m not doing what I think I’m here to do. If I am unsettled inwardly I take that energy out into the world and it becomes a harsh aggressive place.
For quite a long time I have been learning to forget the point of life. Bringing myself into the moment. Doing what I feel it’s right to do at any given time. Because I find this a calm way to move through my day. Along with many others I was tired of the pressure to achieve. Beginning to use what’s the point as my daily mantra. A path I decided I didnt want to go down any longer. Manifesting calmness has taken a while. I have had to tackle a host of shadow concerns as well as the Ego mind. I still trip up from time to time. But much less often than I once did. This weekend showed me I have passed the tipping point. In a meaningful way my life has become pointless. And full of infinite possibilities for good.
I am a free agent. All I want to focus on is enjoying the calm, embracing the peace and expanding those feelings into my outer world as much as possible. It’s a purpose but not a point 💜
Day 517 of my blogging challenge
Inspirations have been flowing in. My brain hasn’t stopped all day. Sometimes when we take a good look at all that we have going on in our lives we find that there are situations that require cutting our losses. This week has brought me to such a point of clarity that I have been standing back and considering where I have been putting my energy for the last few years. I love all that I have been doing but to go forward I also have to make some choices. Will it be painting, writing, my Centre, church services, teaching, healing, readings, public speaking, Partylite or mentoring? I’ve been juggling all of these. Slowly my focus on my bigger dream has been swamped by lots of other ‘stuff’. Stuff I love doing but …
Working for myself it is almost too easy to discover another thing I like doing. Or another service I want to offer. I’m driven by a desire to help and support people. Especially as that desire is my key mission in this life as well as in the many other past lives that I brought in with me for this trip. Cutting through all of the karmic energy, finding an understanding of how that mission is to be delivered and making sure I have the energy to do so also means doing less of some things. And more of what makes that mission happen. That is the power of cutting the losses. It’s important for me to put all my energy into the activities that deliver the mission. Energy going elsewhere is ‘lost’. That doesn’t mean that it’s not helping or supporting people. However, I may be able to do more if I am concentrating on those things that will, in the end, have a bigger impact for everyone.
One example that popped up this week was an unsolicited offer from someone for me to do more healing training so I could add another type of healing to my list. I get lots of invites to go on courses for new types of training. Do I need to do any more training in new techniques? What I do already seems to be working. I have eight ways of healing that I can use. How many more is enough? Also, as a business women, I have to question whether the cost in time, money and energy will be worth it. If I focus on the healing modalities I already use and develop them to the best of my ability that may be the very best use of myself. So I didn’t sign up for the training. I also had a good think about the healing I was already doing to see if it was time for me to stop doing any of it. Again, all part of the power of cutting my losses.
It’s tempting to keep adding in rather than cutting out tasks. So taking the time this week to consider redirecting my energy has been very energising. I’ve noticed where I’m passionate about keeping something. Also where it seems I can let go without any real pang of loss. The best thing of all has been that reorganising what I’m going to be doing, with a clear focus on whether it fits with my life purpose or not, has freed up my mind for new ideas. Different ways of doing things have been dropping into my mind. They have been going off like fireworks. New projects are appearing fully formed & ready to go. My energy is fired up to take my mission further than I imagined this time last week.
I’m looking forward to cutting out those bits of my working life that slow me down. It’s exciting to make space for the things I’m really, really passionate about. I feel good about the changes I’m making. I feel empowered to live my life my way. If you feel stuck in too much ‘stuff’ why not think about your life purpose. What is it you burn to do? What would tomorrow morning be like if you were waking up to a day of fulfilling your purpose? Then start to embrace the changes you need to make to bring your mission a step closer to completion.
Day 207 of my blogging challenge.
Over the last few days I’ve been a bit headachy. As I’m not normally prone to headaches I’ve been paying attention to the energy going around a bit more. I notices amongst my psychic friends and my Facebook feed that people were reporting headaches & migranes from Wednesday onwards. We all seemed to be feeling the pain together. Sitting quietly today, after another friend was laid low with a mega headache, I asked my Guides to help me become aware of what was underneath all of these reports.
They immediately drew my attention to the wristband I’d picked up on Thursday & started wearing. It says Life Loves You. Thinking about that I remembered the recent period of Mercury retrograde. That was all about old, stuck energy that I thought I’d sorted out a long time ago but bouncing back up to show me I hadn’t really tied up the loose ends. The issues that surfaced really did need to be finished and let go. So even though I thought I had let go I discovered that old feelings were still taking up aura space. Once again I found myself releasing emotional energy.
Going through this somewhat ‘low’ period of letting go one of the things I did notice about myself was that I was fed up of having these feelings lingering around. Stuck feelings only really disappear when we are ready to let them go completely. As the retrograde period moved on I also noticed that my reaction to the issues was getting less and less. This week I wrote a blog about niggles. Some of the niggles were the last remaining energy from Mercury retrograde. It feels good to find that much of the stuck energy has disappeared and to feel more focused about my way forward. So why the headaches?
Reflecting some more I remembered the connection third eye chakra has with clairvoyance. In other words our intuitive way of sensing or ‘seeing’ the energy flow and translating it so we understand on a deeper level where we are headed. When third eye chakra gets blocked or dirty this can often cause headaches. Until we have worked to clear the chakra so that energy flows properly again we can suffer physical and psychic headaches. Rebalancing or healing third eye will remove stuck energy allowing us to ‘see’ where we are going much more clearly. It was at this point that I realised I have been drifting off from my big vision. I have had a dream for many years but in the more recent past I’d forgotten what the ultimate goal was. Pondering my headache, trying to up understand what I needed to see more clearly I started to listen to my heart instead of my head.
There in my heart, waiting for me to pay attention, was my dream. It flew up out of the black hole I’d let it drift into. Bouncing round my brain was my life’s purpose. Letting my heart awaken me to the flow of energy bringing me my dream was breathtaking. Law of Attraction only works when our desire (the wish in our heart) is at one with our belief (the intent in our mind). Until we are wholeheartedly and wholemindedly at one with the requests we make of the Universal energy we are stuck. When the heart and head do battle they often cancel the request energy out completely. The energy of Mercury retrograde and the aftermath of the releasing of energy have created an ideal storm to shake us up. No wonder we have headaches. We are being prompted to find peace in our heart/head battle so the Life can give us everything we wish for.
So I’m embracing the feeling that Life Loves Me. I’m reminding myself of it. I’m open to receive all of the wonderful abundance that is on it’s way in. We have a simple choice. Be ruled by the head, staying risk free and miserable. Or throw our hearts over the windmill and see where our dreams take us. I’m off to look for the next big adventure!
