Sometimes when I feed my son he is so frantic to get the milk that he mistakenly pushes away exactly what he most wants and needs. Whilst squirming about and clutching for it, waving his hands and trying to speed things up, it becomes harder to actually get the milk to his mouth and he slows everything down! This ends up with him getting more frustrated, until I pin his little arm down or hold his hand out of the way (I’m always impressed how strong a 10 week old baby can be!)
Interestingly, this is something I have noticed with myself or with clients sometimes, when a result or outcome is so badly desired that it becomes almost impossible to receive it, and the more we want it and struggle to get it, the slower and more arduous the whole process becomes. On my journey of ups and downs, mastering the art of manifesting and creating the life of my dreams I have had to continually surrender and ‘let go’ to read more about my journey here http://www.katharinedever.com/mentoring/.
So today’s article is about how to receive your desires faster, let go of attachments and basically get out of your own way!
It sounds basic, and it is, but so often we forget to just take a breath and step back and see the situation for what it is. We lose perspective when we get attached or start chasing something, or decide on the way things ‘should’ be. We forget to trust life, trust the process and believe in the good that is naturally ours and will find us once we are available for it! Yes – it’s not so much as needing to ‘get’ your good, as it is about being open, ready and willing to receive it, so place your energy on shifting to that space rather than the ‘grabbing’ space of lack, fear and want.
Get yourself into your knowing. Listen to your intuition, ask for what you want and then ALLOW, by leaning back and hearing the messages you receive, looking out for signs and then taking immediate action upon your guidance. Cultivate a knowing inside you of safety and enoughness:
“We each have the choice in any setting to step back and let go of the mind-set of scarcity. Once we let go of scarcity, we discover the surprising truth of sufficiency. By sufficiency, I don’t mean a quantity of anything. Sufficiency isn’t two steps up from poverty or one step short of abundance. It isn’t a measure of barely enough or more than enough. Sufficiency isn’t an amount at all. It is an experience, a context we generate, a declaration, a knowing that there is enough, and that we are enough.” Lynne Twist, the Soul of Money
You’ve heard it before and no doubt will be reminded again, but I’m harping on about gratitude anyways, because it’s fundamental to receiving your good. As the old saying goes- what you appreciate, appreciates – so make a note today of all the many and myriad blessings in your life and extend your gratitude to another and make their day!
With All My Love & Blessings,
A few years ago I made a commitment to myself that changed my life. I decided that despite any pressure I imagine otherwise, I would pursue my highest vision. Whether it seemed crazy, far out, off the wall- I did not care, I only knew that every day I avoided expressing my deepest truths was a day that I died a little bit inside. So I began a journey into my true self.
I published poetry, articles and a book and I began working one-to-one with clients all over the World seeking guidance, especially those who were at some kind of turning point or experiencing transformation. I felt like someone had pulled a plug out of my third eye. I could intuit things before they happened, and see myself and others living their divine life mission effortlessly and with grace and love.
It was exciting, but also kind of scary at first and I would sometimes doubt myself. Over time though I learnt to trust my creativity, my intuition and the wisdom I received and became full of my highest excitement. As more and more things ‘came true’ or aligned, the more faith I had in myself and what I was discovering, especially as synchronistic events and occurrences acted like little sign posts to
At the time I took my inspiration from others who had walked before me and pursued their vision no matter what. I became fascinated with the so called “eccentrics” or geniuses, who were creating something from a vision deep inside them that felt true, rather than an external ‘truth’ or reality.It didn’t make any difference if that genius was a World famous inventor- for example Thomas Edison, or a little known ‘peaceful warrior’ planting a garden his or her way, for a purpose they could see or feel. One of my favourite examples is the wonderful Portmerion in Wales, a true visionary concept still delighting folks and inspiring people just like me, who know there is more to life than a 9-5 or a job you hate!
So today I am going to ask you an important question, but I warn you that the answer could change your life forever.
What is your highest excitement? What is your true vision for your life, the one that gives you a feeling of awe and makes your heart beat quicken? Are you willing to commit to living, breathing, working, being from the place inside you that not only sees your highest vision, but also wants to co-create it with you?
Once you know, once you make this commitment, and take this ‘spiritual promise’ you simply can’t go back, it’s impossible! Even if you try to, turning back will be futile once you have made this oath! It is like a visionary Hotel California!
So do one thing that inspires you today, and start working back from your vision. Imagine yourself in that vision and then write a ‘brain dump’ of every single thing you can think of that it will take to make it happen…And marinade in your vision whenever you get the chance. If you dream it, you can live it.
