As easy going as I can be, my business side wants all the answers. I want to know the what, when, why, and how. This is the information I’ve been programmed to obtain to be a successful leader and entrepreneur. Forecast. Be a forward thinker. Think beyond the lines.
There is a time and a place for this way of thinking. Understanding and executing those times appropriately is where the work comes in. For me, it’s a daily effort to separate when to insert this line of thought and when to dig deep into the depths of me and allow the magic to take hold.
We can’t live life from a constant fractured place. Our soul’s purpose is to be whole and if we are pulling from different scattered pieces, we will always feel divided. Bridging the division between who we are and who we are told we are supposed to be, is a road of peaks and valleys. The journey is part of the magic.
I have implemented some daily practices to help bridge all the aspects of my life and be more present.
Here are three powerful tools to help you get there too:
Right now is what’s real. Taking life day by day to some can be considered ridiculous or perceived as someone not having their life together. This is a false truth. People who choose to move from day to day without thinking too much about tomorrow, are building their ability to live completely in the present. This moment, right now, is your reality and the only truth that exists. If we focus on what exists, we grab hold of the inner workings of our true selves and grow and learn from this moment’s experiences. Knowing that the present is all that is, will allow you to let go of worry and doubt over things that have yet to come into play. Be present, grateful, and always hopeful.
Use your God-given discernment. Discernment is perception in the absence of judgment with a view to obtaining spiritual direction and understanding. We all have the ability to use our intuitive spirit and choose love over fear. View each situation through the lens of compassion and love. Remove yourself from unnecessary judgment and give your heart a chance to speak, allowing your choices to form from a genuine place of self-understanding and self-love. The choices you make from that place of true discernment will create opportunities you never expected.
Let go of the outcome. This is the hardest piece for me and one I have to consciously work towards. I fight with my need to spell out my future or completely understand the situation and how it will come into play. Conscious manifesting escapes so many because they are unable to hold on to this concept. When we learn to ask, live in the present, and let go of outcomes, we learn to write a story that is beyond our wildest dreams. Do what you can today, then let go of the outcome. Give your burdens up, and allow the flow that you’ve created to do what it will.
Implementing this line of thinking pulls the need to know, and the power of letting go, into one safe place. The split pieces start to merge into one whole sphere of understanding, and decisions that come from a present self-knowing place will always be the right ones and the most powerful ones.
