I’m grateful for the FREEDOM to live consciously. If that is true, it also means I have the FREEDOM to live unconsciously whenever I choose too. Living consciously aligns me with the energy of love, abundance, and peace, while living unconsciously aligns me with the energy of fear, lack, and separation. Every breath gives me a choice on how I want to the live in this moment I’m alive. How amazing is that? I’m never condemned to live in an energy that isn’t serving me. If I want to change how I live, it all begins with a conscious thought and then a conscious action. I can live consciously until I choose not to.
One of the things I love to pay attention to is when I choose to go unconscious and align with the energy of fear, lack, and separation. Getting myself back into conscious thinking can be hysterical, frustrating, fast, slow, tedious, and/or graceful among other things, but I love figuring out what works and what doesn’t in the moment I’m in.
Lately, I’ve been thoroughly enjoying the books I’ve been reading out on my back deck overlooking our community’s manmade lake, at least they call them lakes here in Florida. My energy has been so much higher by spending this time out there with my complete focus on the energy I want to see more of in the world. I even feel calmer and more at peace interacting with my two teenagers.
When I realize that I have the freedom to choose how I want to live between the ears, which is the power that sets me free to live my best life—I’m more inspired to do the work to keep me there. Living consciously is a choice I have to make as often as I can, or I will slip into unconscious living, which is such an incredibly painful place to live.
Today, I commit to embracing the FREEDOM to choose conscious living. This is a moment by moment commitment. If I choose to engage in watching shows, media, and/or social media, I need to pay attention to where my energy is aligning while I’m there. If I choose to engage with friends who are having personal challenges, I have to choose where I’m going to allow my energy to go. Will I go down with them into fear, lack, and separation, or will I hold my energy in love, abundance, and peace while supporting them through their challenging time? If someone hates me, I have to choose if I want to hop on the revenge cycle and hate them back amplifying the energy of fear, lack, and separation, or do embrace forgiveness and stay in the energy of love, abundance, and peace? There are so many choices, but the choice is NEVER in someone else’s hands. It is always mine. Even if I choose to take the path of fear, lack, and separation for a short period of time, I get to choose whether I want to amplify that choice with guilt, blame, and shame for going there, or I can show myself compassion and move on to make a different choice in the next moment which will align me with love, abundance, and peace.
Understanding that I can never be in the energy of love, abundance, and peace vs. fear, lack, and separation in the same moment, but I’m never committed to be in either one beyond the moment that I’m in. I’m always free to make a new choice in the very next breath. Choosing consciously awakens our souls to the inner knowing of the Divine. More on that to come!
