Who has wanted to play life BIG and pursue their creative ideas yet, didn't really know where to begin? Especially when you know your thoughts are forward-thinking, just ahead of the mean because what you envisioned always came to pass! However, being in the right place at the right time doesn't always mean you know what to do when you are there.
Learning your authentic expression to manifest your Vision and Purpose starts with alchemical alignment from within. The components needed for each of us requires understanding the Self-Realization process. If you intend to PLAY life BIG, you gotta be willing to strip down naked of what you think you think, and begin to listen, feel, and wade in the fluctuating tides that call for you to comply with your inner musings called your senses. When first attempted, this new relational skill is not glamorous, comfortable; the risk is involved, along with humiliation and loss. Sound GOOD?! LOL. It is the GAME of LIFE!
When continuously told what to do and how to do it during the developmental years from inception to teens, we become fearful and small, uncertain of what WE THINK and FEEL about everything. Ultimately we lose the ability to voice an original opinion directly. You see, our brain is pious and retains what is imprinted upon it. Yet, Human Beings are organizing intelligence at every level of our being down to the cells, atoms, and subatomic matter, so our system naturally adapts to the force and finds a way around blockages. Due to this, out of our natural harmonic flow, the dis-ease becomes functional. And, what we became is not who we are at a SOUL level.
Our system and mind learn to solicit others' help rather than resource our own thoughts and feelings. We make ourselves too accessible, docile, and accommodating in a way we might not recognize consciously. Even when people interfere or interrupt our: focus, time, space, and creativity, we hardly acknowledge a boundary that has been crossed. Our actions become reactions to others, rather than plotting a course self-determined in our passions, rightly or wrongly willing to risk, to learn and grow!
Regardless of the internal fears, when your heart is BIG, you attract people the minute you walk into a room! Your physical size doesn't matter here because you are HUGE energetically! Yet, knowingly or unknowingly, as a way to feel safety and likeability, you attach to or tentacle out ahead of our physical body to others' energy systems asking, "Am I safe?" "Am I welcome here?"
How do I take back my courage, fortitude, and press up against the explosive bigness that "I Am" within? It begins with the Self-Realization process: Which is the development of your "witness mind" and senses so you can start to notice your system's guidance. A beginning step is to learn how to creatively think, behave, and evolve.
Let's begin with this: Understanding and playing with the creative process. Read books like the classic "The Artist Way" by Julia Cameron or "The 33-Day Soul Challenge" by Amanda Lux; https://www.elevationhive.com/soul-care-book. Her next interactive session begins on November 16th, 2020. I highly recommend Amanda's course.
Working on yourself to feel, think, and behave in mature ways is an ongoing unending study. It asks us to be patient and rewards us with radical healing as if we unwind old patterns and jump forward into new life status. During this experiment, be easy with yourself; Think of it as a game of shoots and ladders! Although we might slide down and visit an old behavior now and again, we never really go entirely back to where we were; instead, we touch the "thing" and notice HOW DIFFERENT it is for us now because WE ARE CHANGED. While playing, allow yourself to be satisfied with where you are. Stop, look, and listen to your breath as it rises and falls, and have that be everything or simply enough in this present moment.
As you grow in confidence, know that your brilliance and unabashedly being could and will disturb some around you. Notice that discomfort within you, say hello to it, and love yourself up! It is you, YOU ARE MORE NOW, and others won't be used to it! The temptation will be to shrink back down; instead, raise your head up and FOCUS on what serves you next. Leave that uncomfortable energy where it belongs; BEHIND YOU. No more Holding Back!
Demand reciprocal relationships along with people who enjoy and support you without personal feedback or unsolicited opinions! To those people, say, "Thank you for sharing your thoughts. Next time, please ASK ME if I want your opinion. Thanks." Speaking up for yourself can be confronting, but you create healthy boundaries once your practice and notice all your senses' likes and dislikes.
Playing life, BIG begins with becoming a witness of "The Self, being forthright and vulnerable while willingly standing in a burning FIRE non-attached to others' responses. Bottom line: "Be willing to be UNLIKEABLE!"
