“A ship is always safe at the shore – but that is NOT what it is built for.” ~Albert Einstein
I was at a healing meditation yesterday evening. I have been unwell. I have been doing all the wrong things. I haven’t been following my intuition. I haven’t been taking great care of myself, not eating what I believe to be healthy. But, none of that matters. The real reason I haven’t gotten well is because I have not allowed the universe to heal me. I have been resisting wellness. As I was lying on my mat and blanket in the studio I asked myself why I wasn’t healing. And an answer jumped into my consciousness. My mother died at the same age I will reach this year. Do I deserve to live a longer and healthier life than she did? Let’s put it this way; I deserve to live a long and healthy life if that’s what makes me happy. It has nothing to do with my mother’s choices, it has nothing to do with her path. Does my subconscious believe that? Now it does. We don’t need to know why we have been resisting health or wealth or wisdom and my mother’s death may have nothing to do with my resistance. We just need to know we deserve to live our perfect life.
The ego thrives on fear. When we are afraid to fail, afraid to live, afraid to say yes, then the ego remains in control. When we have faith that the universe loves us and will bring us what we need, we live in joy.
We don’t have to do anything except allow the universe to bring us what we need, but we have to have faith to allow. Well-being, abundance, and joy do not come from fear. They come from faith. Health comes from faith.
So, now I am evolving. I am not making so many intentions, I am not visualizing so much as I did. I am asking the universe to bring me the perfect, inspiring job for me, the perfect, inspiring relationship for me, and the perfect, inspiring place for me. After all, I don’t know what is perfect for me, but right now it all feels perfect. And that feeling, that knowing that the universe is conspiring with me for joy, that knowing that I need only believe, the peace I feel in faith, is what will bring me my job, my relationship, my health, and my joyful life.
We are far too hard on ourselves. We expect that we have expend so much effort and continually strive to get anything we want. It is time to stop all the working, all the worrying, all the beliefs that we have to work hard and earn what we want. It’s all here for you. It is the Garden of Eden if you want it to be. We have to stop believing in the laws of this physical world. Let go of the paradigm of struggle and striving. Embrace the spiritual power that is yours. Know that you can have heaven on earth if you choose it. Then don’t try to make it happen! That’s right, stop trying to figure it out, don’t make plans that place fear and doubt in your heart, don’t take action if it frightens you. Have faith that the universe knows what heaven on earth is for you. The plans it sends you will be inspiring, not dreadful. The action it sends you will be exciting, not tedious. The work it expects from you will be joyful, not spirit-breaking.
If it doesn’t feel good, the universe didn’t send it. If it feels good, especially inspiring and uplifting, then you can be sure you got your marching orders from the universe. Just remember and be prepared, when you are living in the joyful moment and nearing a new plateau in your spiritual evolvement, the ego will fight back with a vengeance. It is afraid of death. Spirit fears nothing and knows there is no death. The ego will strike with renewed fear and doubt. When the ego strikes, remember all the times that you lived in faith and how good it felt and how the universe rewarded you for it, not just in physical rewards, but joy rewards.
Tell the ego to take a leap. Ain’t nobody got time for the ego. Allow the universe to heal you, to bring you abundance, and to bathe you in loving energy. Feel loved. You are.
I allow the universe to bring me an amazing life.
I open my arms to receive gifts from the universe.
All that I want is brought to me.
My powerful energy sparks the creation of my perfect life.
Lie quietly and allow the universe to fill you with love and healing energy. Move your arms or body as it feels right to you. Enjoy the peace freely brought to you.
