Unification and Empowerment - 29th July 2013
It is hard to deny the somewhat intense and deep
sense of shift and movement occurring at the current time, particularly
on the planes within. There is a profound wave of healing sweeping
through layer upon layer of consciousness as each of us begins to shed
aspects of our Selves, our lives and our paths that no longer serve a
positive or life affirming purpose. Yet, this clean sweep is not blasé
or gung-ho in shape or form, as every single thing we shed is
significant and represents a willingness to create more space within as
we step back from the need to define ourselves by the past or by
aspirations of the future.
We have reached a stage of inner knowing where we
feel ready to embrace the true vibration of healing and that is to find
balance and empowerment through acceptance and love. Healing can often
invoke a sense of incompletion as we strive to be healed before we can
live our lives, and yet, the more we chase the state of ‘completion’ the
more we realise that we have more puzzles to solve and riddles to
untangle before we can reach that promised land. Therefore by seeking
balance and empowerment through acceptance, we can begin to let go of
the cycle of chasing completion through a fear of being incomplete and
instead shift the balance towards love and wholeness. Although this does
not ‘fix’ us, it takes us away from the somewhat perpetual and
continual need to dig, probe and unravel in order to understand our
Selves and our paths in life.
Of course, we will always dig to some extent as
that is a part of being human, but there comes a time when too much
digging keeps us locked in the past and chasing the future. There is
only so much we can learn by what went before, and although the past
helps to inform the present, it doesn’t create it, as we do that. At the
same time, the more we gaze longingly into a future where we can feel
Whole and complete, we diminish the value of the present as we fail to
give it power or definition.
Yet, present moment awareness is not really at the
crux of these shifts, it just helps us to become more aware of them. At
the crux of these shifts is a willingness to unify ourselves on all
levels; bringing together past, present and future, perfection and
imperfection, fear and faith, light and dark…
This inner unification is not about surrendering to
the ‘dark side’ (if indeed there is such a thing) or giving up on our
dreams, but it is about taking a step beyond living conditionally and
linear time to instead loving what is, exactly as it is, now. So
many of us spend our lives defining ourselves by past events, past
choices and past decisions, and yet we also know that many of our
experiences in life are beyond our power. This begs the question as to
why we continually choose to define ourselves by such things even though
they are now behind us in the past?
Of course, it is hard not to let the past define us
as it is already grounded and set in stone; it has happened and is
therefore a solid reference point. And yet, we intuitively know that the
present is our true reference point as the past is behind us. We can
therefore become tangled up in knots trying to unravel this equation as
we want to live now in a unified and balanced way, but we cannot get
beyond the need to heal, fix and find completeness from understanding
the past and shaping the future.
Such a conundrum seems all the more poignant whilst
we go through this current wave of shift as we are being reminded that
we are vibrant and awakened beings, connected to the Whole and an
integral part of the bigger picture.
We have long been seeking new ground beneath our
feet that feels solid and stable, but it seems that we are now ready to
embrace a new way of living and being that involves us letting go of the
side rails and finding strength from exploring unchartered terrain.
Even though this new world may feel strange and unfamiliar, it also
intuitively feels like home as we let go of the past, and of the clutter
within, in order to take a deep breath of life…

The Attitude of Excellence is a Wonderful Habit to have

to excel is an essential fragment that demonstrates competency that is
required for any job you tackle, even if that job is not work related.
Adding the quality of excellence truly involves you putting your whole
self into what you do; you are purely focused and determined. This kind
of attitude has many times been the result that separates other dear
souls that have not yet learned for themselves what is required to excel
are some noticeable attributes that describe many dear souls that are
high achievers. Some who demonstrate these qualities do not often take
no for an answer, they are persistent. Anyone can add the attribute of
excellence to their work ethics simply by making the choice to strive
harder and more diligently. Understand dear ones; excellence is all
about being able to step out beyond your normal comfort zones, being
able to accept any of the inevitability of certain trials and
tribulations that may cross your path.
Remember dear ones, any amount of progress is built not from your successes but from any mistakes you have endured. An
essential player when adding excellence to your repertoire of great
attributes is being able to use your initiative when opportunities are
you are dear ones, you can become a leader to others. Leadership isn’t
always about big and glamorous, becoming a leader takes many steps and
each step forward is another step in progress.
Along the way you are gifted the potential of learning so much of yourself and of others. As
you plan your day or if you have a project to complete remember the
steps you take to reach completion you are responsible for. Create an
action plan, set up priorities and stick to them. Distractions will come
your way, but it is up to you to determine on how long they are allowed
to stay. If you are truly focused, the amount of distractions you allow
will indeed be limited.
is essential to fulfilling all goals that you set out to reach.
Demonstrating a no quitting attitude even during difficult situations
will help maintain your focus and clear your path to continue moving
forward. When problems arise, don’t pass them to another dear soul, make
an effort to figure them out.
everything work positively for you. See every instance as a learning
opportunity, a way of becoming more of yourself and by going the extra
mile when that golden window of opportunity becomes available you will
be displaying great enthusiasm and initiative. Having
a positive attitude professionally and personally doesn’t require you
to be loud and boisterous, what it does show is your confidence. Your
confidence demonstrates to those around you that you are willing to work
hard in order to achieve.
you are with friends or family, you often display confidence by how you
greet, talk, entertain and host. Many times the confidence you have
from your personal life carries into your professional life. You are
able to take pride that is not ego driven in the work you have fulfilled
and in the effort you applied. You know already that when you give your
best, your heart and soul, this effort will go a very long way.
will face challenging people that will attempt to distract you and sway
you from your focus. Steer clear away from sabotaging type people,
especially when you are focusing on completing an important project or
objective. When you feel you need the interaction of your peers
regardless if they are professional or personal seek those that have the
ability to make you feel good, people that illuminate compassion and
respect. Your journey is filled with so many wonderful opportunities.
only are you able to inspire yourself with your goal focused attitude,
you are able to inspire and motivate others when you are able to respond
to them when they seek your guidance and support.
you strive for excellence dear ones, you demonstrate pure focus and
great attitude and you provide clarity for others to follow and move
forward. If you can do it, so can they. Your actions when they are
filled with positive-ness not only empowers’ yourself to persevere, but
they also empower others to work harder in areas that may have before
demonstrated weakness. Success is available to everyone.
don’t have to be in a working environment to realize your
connectedness. Each of you plays an important role in this journey.
Learn to recognize the uniqueness in others and accept that each person
you come across, you work with or even your own family members and
friends all have their own unique perspectives.
comes to you through these interactions. Don’t be so rigid that you
miss pertinent information that could help your own journey just because
you don’t resonate with another person’s beliefs or values. When
another dear soul shares with you, regardless how big or small, they are
sharing a part of themselves. Unknowingly, they have given you
something to learn and to grow more from and it is up to you to
recognize these opportunities and make them work for you. You
have heard many times now that mistakes are your stepping stones to
success. Learn from them and discover new ways to bring excellence into
all you do.
of the ways of gathering new ideas is by watching others that have a
strong work ethic and who are clearly focused. Learn what it is that
makes them good at what they do and figure how you can incorporate this
information into your own work. Sometimes the teacher doesn’t always
stand in front of you and lecture; sometimes they work quietly and just
show you unknowingly through their actions. Every day you are given the
opportunity to not only be the teacher but to be the student as well.
have spoken much regarding the dear souls that demonstrate positive
attitude and who take initiative to bring excellence into their
projects. It is important to be able to recognize the ones that
demonstrate negative attitudes because sometimes this kind of attitude
is quite subtle. The many dear souls that do not have the focus that is
needed to bring in excellence often display contentment where they are
at everything, they do not strive for higher success or to improve their
skills any further.
don’t make an effort to try harder or to do more simply because they do
not want to. Many dear souls that have a negative attitude, simply come
to work because they need to, many times they reject any responsibility
even with the tasks they do themselves.
is a bad word to some dear souls that are filled with negative
attitude. They do not rise to the occasion when a difficulty arises;
they show disinterest and oftentimes resist any kind of change. It
is up to you to know if you have a positive or negative outlook on your
journey. The success of any journey depends a lot on your attitude.
Because your journey is filled with so many choices, change is apparent
with optimist-like attitude do not give up when faced with a setback.
They see setbacks as an opportunity to learn what went wrong and turn
those wrongs into a right the next time around. To achieve more positive
outcomes dear ones, it is important to have a positive mind set, to be
optimistic and at the same time ready to face trials and to learn from
them, to be able to ask for help that will bring different results,
having a positive attitude will propel you forward. It may seem at times
you are taking small steps, but they are still steps forward that will
lead you to your success.
is always possible to change your outlook. First you have to accept and
realize that your current attitude requires a little improvement and
create a better and much more positive approach to your goals. Take
responsibility for all your decisions and actions, they are yours and no
one else’s. When mistakes occur don’t put yourself down, remind
yourself of your goal and maintain your focus, concentrate on what you
can do instead of what you cannot.
you are going to give yourself a lecture, think of giving the same
lecture to another dear soul – saying the same words, the same way. Give
yourself respect dear ones. You deserve your own respect as much as the
respect you give to others. When speaking of your own efforts and the
efforts of others choose language that is positive, that demonstrates
appreciation. Remember the power of your speech. Once the words are out,
they cannot be erased.
you take responsibility for your actions, you are also being
responsible for the words you choose to express to yourself and to
comparing yourself so often with others. You are not here to keep up
with your neighbour; you are here to learn, to achieve, to grow and to
be all that you can be. If you are still finding yourself needing to
compare with others, try seeing yourself in another dear soul’s shoes
that is not doing as well as you.
the visible happiness even if the other person you are comparing to is
poor and from an underdeveloped country. Happiness doesn’t come with
money or other material gains. Happiness is simple dear ones; it comes
as a result from being content and from being able to love yourself for
who you are as you are. We witness many people who have had great ordeals count their blessings.
know and appreciate the life they have is special; nothing is taken for
granted. They have worked hard for what they have achieved; even if in
another person’s eyes their achievements may be small. It is important
dear ones to count your blessings, to appreciate what you have because
there is always someone somewhere else that easily has it worse off.
a habit of being grateful for at least 3 to 5 things each day. Think
about what it is you like about yourself and what you like about others.
Remember dear ones every challenge and disadvantage also holds many
positive learning opportunities that are filled with great advantages.
The more you see a challenge as a positive opportunity instead of being a
negative hindrance will help you to discover your own personal
strengths and will generate motivation for more positive action.
ones, it is important to remember, excellence is not a skill, but it is
an attitude. Look at the many things you do routinely and see your many
habits. Excellence can also been viewed as a positive habit rather than
an action and each of you do have the ability and the capability of
adding excellence into all your efforts. You know this as truth as each
of you carries with you God’s excellent Presence and His presence is
demonstrated quite often in the many things you do.
And so it is…
