I'm a spiritual optimist. I have an impenetrable force behind my positive focus. Hhhmmm, impenetrable...let's step that back to formidable. I consider that one of my favorite things I am most proud of in myself, but learning to sharpen that skill has been a life changer for me. It's allowed me to maintain it with less energy and more focus.
Here's the change I made that gave me so much freedom and power. I'm the watcher. My radar is looking for dissonance. I'm sensing for energetic dis-ease or upset within my body. I'm observing the results around me. When peace, positivity and love is in flow and my external world is in harmony, I trust what I see and feel. I trust the reality I believe in.
When peace and contentment begin to dissipate, I know I am in touch with the pain body I hold within me and I must be vigilant for it and those in others around me. That pain body is writing a script that has corrupted all of my senses and will filter, edit and destroy all elements of love and truth. This is when we must stop attaching to what we believe.
Following pain only cements you to it and leaves you hypnotized in a spell that holds virtually no truth at all. When you feel dis-ease within you, stop. Say nothing, take no action. You will need all of your strength to break free. Find space alone. Meditate and find your peace and love, so that's it's safe to believe again. ❤
