You can't go anywhere until you are somewhere.
There is one thing that overwhelmingly comes up in the healings I do for other people... People can not be moved into a place they are not ready for. I can try and heal them, clear them, advise them and tell them their likely path but it won't help them be somewhere they aren't. It merely supports them to be where they are. So why bother? Because you can't go anywhere until you are somewhere. When I offer a healing to someone, I am offering them grounding, presence and the ability to have more of the NOW. What does this mean? It means that most of the time we spend trying to propel ourselves forward to some place other than where we are. We are always on the go, moving towards news goals, executing plans and "improving" ourselves. But if we never stop to enjoy where we are, we are always chasing our tails. We can't put ourselves in alignment with our highest good, unless we take time to notice what that even is. This is the real reason a lot of spiritual practices talk about being still and meditating or praying. It is because most of us don't slow down long enough to listen to ourselves and just be.
I am not saying stop moving forward and setting goals. What I am saying is to try and be grateful for where you are first. This gives you a sense of direction. If you don't first notice where you are, you can't get up enough energy to go where you want. It is like looking at a map for directions without knowing where you are. It is all just random roads and landmarks that mean nothing.
Insightful Inspiration of the Week
Notice where you are. Be with that feeling and send gratitude towards it. When you are setting goals this week, first map out where you have come to. List out your accomplishments, your amazing life and notice where you are now. Are you fed? Are you warm? Are you in clothes that you like and picked out from a closet of clothes? Your life is amazing no matter where you are at. Bring yourself fully into that amazing part of yourself and the only place you will choose to go on the map from here is to more amazing places. If you are directly conscious efforts to where you are, you will have more awareness of where you are going and make choices about those directions.
You are not in complete control, but that is the fun part! You never know what is coming next, but once it does you can just be with it.
It is great to set goals and make visions for the future, but this week, try and focus on where you are, not where you want to go. Even if you can only do it for a few minutes a day. As always, you are encouraged to share!
