I’m grateful I know how to consciously live my truth. This has not always been true. I used to be swayed quite easily by what is happening around me. I let the external world define my inner truth. This was a VERY dangerous way to live. I’m not saying that sometimes the stories of fear, lack, and separation don’t seep into my inner world. What happened is that I became aware of it when it does. I will actually laugh at myself when I noticed how I gave my power away to someone or something. I put myself back into perspective when I see that I took a seed from someone who is aligning fear, lack, and separation. Sometime’s I catch myself after I’ve already planted the seed in my garden. Then, I realize it didn’t fit in with the other seeds I planted. If you’ve been following the blog, you know all about my description of our internal gardens. They are OURS!!! No one has power over our gardens except for us. We decide which seeds we will plant, grow, spread, and throw out. NO ONE can MAKE us have something in our gardens that we don’t allow to be in there. I know that what I put in my garden is up to me. I know the if my soil is rich with love, abundance, and peace, any belief (truth) I plant will flourish in that energy. Picking and choosing what I put in my garden and what I pull out is how I hold myself responsible and accountable for what lives in there. This is how I consciously live my truth.
Today, I commit to taking an honest look at my truth. We can’t blame others if our energy is aligned with fear, lack, and separation. Why we would allow unhealthy people to have that kind of power over our lives? I know if I blame someone else for a truth that I’m buying into, I need to take a closer look at what seed I’m putting into my garden. If I don’t look at my own truths, I become blind to their impact on how I view the world. I start judging people in the worst ways and it’s all because I’m not looking at myself and what I’m putting out there. Many times we get messages from the Universe that we can skew based on our own personal bias. Here’s an example:
I believe that God has a plan, and it is much bigger than any human is capable of understanding fully because we put our own spins on the messages based on our personal truths, which doesn’t mean they are God’s truths. So in believing this, when things don’t go the way I want them to, I’ve learned to surrender to God’s plan of the bigger picture and I pray to stay in the energy of love, abundance, and peace. Now, I’ve heard other people talk about God’s plan, but when things don’t go the way they expect it to go, they fight it tooth and nail like they KNOW better. That is not consciously believing in God’s plan. If we fight it, we either are holding onto fear, lack, and separation somewhere OR we don’t truly believe in God’s plan. I’m not saying other people have to believe what I do, look at God the way I do, or believe anything that they don’t connect to as truth. I’m just saying it’s important to take whatever truths we are claiming and take an honest look at them.
Anything anyone else believes are just their perspectives of truth. We have to decide what our perspectives of truth are, and it is our own job to investigate how to make them work in our lives. If they don’t work, we don’t have to keep them. We can pull them up from the roots and make the decision to get rid of whatever does’t work. We don’t have to get defensive over it. If we do that it’s because we are attaching to fear, lack, and separation. Just because someone has different ideas for their garden, doesn’t make them wrong. We are not going to EVER think and believe all the EXACT same things as someone else, and that is okay. This is how we grow, learn, and expand. I helps me to imagine it as creating my own dream garden. For some reason looking at people’s perspectives in this way helps me to NOT take someone else’s beliefs personally. If I know that someone’s soil is filled with fear, lack, and separation, I know I’m not going to want the seeds that come from their garden. They may not even be conscious of the weed filled garden that they created by aligning with fear, lack, and separation. It’s their job to figure out when they want to take control of their own garden.
I hope this helps someone else hold onto their energy of love, abundance, and peace.
With Love, Abundance, and Peace,
