Abraham-Hicks has a saying which I love: "You don't want to get pregnant and then give birth the next day. There is a gestation period for all your plans." As I prepare to give birth in the coming month, I have been thinking about all the wonderful occurrences in my life, and in the lives of my clients, and about the Journey that led to these occurrences. In all cases, the Journey produced a lot of growth, and the unfolding of the wanted results created a greater appreciation than would had been possible if the manifestations were instantaneous.
We are the co-creators of our own realities, and as such, we get to be the writers, designers, artists, poets, casting directors, and cinematographers of our own lives. Sure, we all participated in pre-life planning, in which our higher selves, with the loving help of our guides, sketched a general plan regarding central themes we would like to explore in this life, and central characters we would like to explore them with. When my clients experience the Spirit Realm Hypnosis session they are often surprised and delighted to finally gain a higher perspective, which helps them make sense of the occurrences in their lives. But pre-planning doesn't negate the freedom of choice that we all have, which is the freedom of walking on our ideal path and living our best lives, versus the freedom of letting pain, trauma, fear, and disappointments lead us away from our chosen paths, and down paths which do not align with our higher selves.
There is no right or wrong when it comes to how we choose to live our lives. The whole point of having freedom of choice means that we get to have diverse experiences, and we often have to experience the unwanted in order to figure out what we truly want. There is no judgment in the Spirit Realm. As Paulo Coelho said "When you want something, the whole Universe conspires in helping you to achieve it". Your guides are rooting for you, and so is your entire soul family. On the other hand, nobody is disappointed in you when you make choices that end up causing you (or others) pain. Just like parents understand when their young children behave in immature ways, beings which are more evolved than us spiritually understand when we behave in ways that demonstrate that we are still evolving.
Even though there is no higher judgment, there actually is a very good reason for us to keep choosing our very best paths. Those are the paths that will lead us to the greatest JOY! Plain and simple! When we are aligned with our higher selves, we automatically make all the "right" choices, and we create better and better circumstances in our lives, which result in less pain and more joy! Choosing the best path for yourself begins with re-programing the mind to get rid of beliefs which do not serve you, and discovering who you truly are and what you truly want. Next step is to heal and integrate aspects of yourself which you had lost contact with (your inner child, your inner leader, etc.) and to become more authentic and whole. Then, you clear your energy from all resistant energy that you brought forward from your past (childhood, past lives). Next, you re-discover your higher self (Spirit-self), and as all this transformation takes place in you, you will be in the ideal position to plant seeds for your future success!
I conducted a little science experience with my 3 year old son the other day. We placed little lentils on a moist piece of cotton, situated them in the sun, and watered them daily. My son was amazed to see how those tiny seeds contained the potential to grow into little plants. The potential for the fruition of our dreams can be found in our plans. But very often we don't even bother cultivating the seeds of our desires, as we let fear and uncertainty stop us. Yes, the seed looks nothing like the plant. You will not see the final result of your plan for a while, and you might not know in advance what all the steps you will need to take are. But once you get the momentum going, you will experience the joy of pursuing your goal, and that feeling alone will change your life for the better. The feeling of being stuck, on the other hand, is extremely uncomfortable. That feeling is the result of resistant energy (self-doubt, self-sabotage, fear, lack of self-worth, etc.) pulling you away from what your higher self believes to be true. In other words, you want something but you don't believe you can have it, or that you even deserve it. Well, coming back to Abraham-Hicks, they wrote a book titled "Ask and it is given!". If you have the ability to dream of something, then you have the ability to manifest it. You might need some assistance, and it might not happen overnight, but you can make your dreams come true!
Rooting for you and wishing you the very best,
