Being Comfortable with Being Uncomfortable

One of the biggest life lessons I ever learned was to become 'comfortable with being uncomfortable'. I realized one day that I had been looking at some things in life completely the wrong way and it had affected me greatly.

We were sitting outside eating our lunch enjoying the fantastic view, when my partner suddenly said to me 'do you realize that you are not comfortable being uncomfortable?'

This stopped me in my tracks. We were discussing how I usually became drained whenever I helped others. His statement, once it sunk in, gave me a huge realization about myself.

All my life I wanted to 'help' people. I seemed to feel their pain. With my partner's observation about me I suddenly realized that their discomfort made me so uncomfortable that I was actually helping me by making them comfortable again!

Wow. This shook me to the core! It made me question my true motivations throughout my life. I had to sit with this for a bit and sort it all out.

The Magic of going into our Feelings

After my last post I was thinking 'finally, now I know how to stay in a great state!' Funny how life never seems to unfold like we think it will.

I woke up two days ago feeling very flat, totally uninspired and with no desire to do anything. Nothing I did seemed to alter how I felt. Not even baking something yummy, which usually works to uplift and inspire me.

This feeling was very familiar to me and I did not like it one bit. There was no reason I could think of why I would feel this way.

I couldn't get out of this state no matter how hard I tried so I just grabbed my computer and started writing. Normally, I have a strong idea of what I want to communicate, feel compelled to write and go from there. This time there was nothing in my mind at all.

I was really surprised what my fingers were typing. The answer was right there in front of me. Funny enough, I had this insight years ago but had totally forgotten it.

This is what I wrote:

When we allow ourselves to go to the depth of how we feel with no resistance, even if it makes us extremely uncomfortable, we end up going through a gateway. By fully allowing this quiet, deep, inward experience to happen we go through the entire feeling. At the other side of this gateway we feel completely different. We are left with a new perspective, wisdom and insight.

As I was writing this my mood suddenly lifted and bliss and excitement returned. I felt really alive again. I don't understand why I had this experience but am very happy that it enabled me to remember this again.

So often we want to pick and choose how we feel at any given moment as if we are choosing what clothes we want to wear. Life just isn't like that!

I had to remember that all feelings are important and potential gateways. They are there to guide and steer us in the direction we are meant to go. Feelings are the language of our soul.

Feeling Excited

Are you feeling the excitement in the air?

For just over a week I have felt a huge excitement building up inside of me. My life has not changed in any way externally but my feelings sense something new is happening. This excitement is very powerful and I feel a huge expansion within myself. Suddenly deep desires are opening up within my heart and soul that have been dormant for a very long time.

I am weaving in and out of this and when I don't feel it I just go deep inside and say 'feel excited' and am instantly centered again and the feeling is back.

I am not the only one experiencing this. So many people around me are feeling it too. Everything we have ever dreamed of suddenly seems possible. It feels as if a whole new world has opened up and we are no longer 'stuck'. We are free. Finally.

I am sensing strongly that we are leaving our old world behind and a new one is beginning. Images come to my mind that we are in the process of moving out of our old house. We are saying goodbye to this old place that has been our home for a very long time. Our new house is being prepared for us and we have brief glimpses of what a glorious place it is! We are in between the two. If we attach too much to the old house and the way we used to live it is very uncomfortable. Lots of dramas and emotions. Our intuition knows what is coming up ahead for all of us and the excitement is building.

New Energies are in the Air

I am feeling a huge energetic wave right now that is taking us on a wild ride.

Can you feel it?

Lots of people are going through tremendous upheaval at the moment. So many people are leaving their bodies, relationships, jobs etc. So many emotions and fears are coming up - more than ever before.

We are all being raised vibrationally to such an extent that anything holding us back is being removed. Old patterns of behavior, insecurities, and fears that we may be holding on to are leaving us.  We do not have to do any processes. It is all happening effortlessly through divine intervention so just allow it to happen. If we cling to our old way of being the journey will be most uncomfortable!

If you or others are experiencing great pain or difficulty at this moment just go inside yourself and  consciously choose to stay in your centre to ride it out. Watch the emotions swirl around you but stay in the 'eye of the storm' to have it pass as quickly and comfortably as possible. Even those who choose to leave their bodies right now will continue on their journey. No one will be left behind in this ascension process.

Everyone has free will as to how they handle this period. Just focus on yourself and allow others to go through their transition in their own way. Love them and keep your heart open to them.  Don't react or go into fear if they are affecting you negatively, but do make strong boundaries. Love them from afar if you need to. This uncomfortable, turbulent time will pass.

This 'phase transition' will happen very quickly.

The world around us is very messy at the moment with so much pain and suffering. It seems to be particularly intense and over the top at this time. The old paradigm is thrashing around and in great upheaval and distress that it is losing its' power. It cannot survive this transition. The energy vibration of  duality is far too low.

Heaven on earth is what our hearts long for and that is what is being manifested!

What is intuition really? How do we know when we are actually receiving it?

These were some of the questions I had after I first became aware of intuition during a life changing experience.

I was getting married. Something, some tiny uncomfortable feeling in my gut, told me that my fiancé wasn't the right one for me. This feeling just came out of the blue and I didn't want it! I tried to make it go away but did not succeed. I was very young and thought the world I lived in was all there was and getting married to your high school sweetheart was what you did (this was the 1970's). Besides, we had already started accumulating furniture and household items for our first place together and were having great fun. The thought of backing out felt overwhelming and my mind seemed confused by this new out-of-the-blue  feeling. Little did I know that deep in my heart and soul I was longing for a completely different life.

I found that out after I got married. Yes, the feeling in my gut grew until it was very strong but I had become really good at ignoring it and allowed myself to became numb instead. At 24 I could have been 80. Life felt over before it even started. When I was growing up feelings were something you swept under the rug, not something you faced. I had no idea how to express a true feeling. We were always taught to 'be nice above all else' and everyone went around pretending this was how they really felt. You just got on with life and went on pretending until the day you died.

Somehow the intuitive feeling I had knew me better than I knew myself. How could it have seen around corners and known what would happen if I married him? Once married I had changed so much in such a short time and felt completely trapped in the little world that we had created. I was extremely unhappy. I did end up leaving him... and the house we bought... and all our furniture... and caused even greater heartbreak than if I had listened to this feeling in the first place.

After this first life changing intuitive experience I decided to quietly study intuition within myself. I wanted to see if this was just a weird experience or if intuition really could tell me what was best for me. I spent many years consciously following my intuition at times and then not following at other times to see what would happen. Every single time I didn't follow it and followed my rational mind instead I would end up feeling I was at a dead end. Each time I followed my intuition I was really surprised at the amazing outcome. It far exceeded my expectations and went way beyond what I could have ever imagined.

For over 20 years I have lived my life by completely following my intuitive feelings. It has been quite a challenge for my rational mind and I have had to have complete faith and trust in myself. It has also taken a great deal of guts for me to blindly leap into the unknown when I was compelled to do so. Somehow I have always landed on my feet and with all these amazing experiences I have grown immeasurably.
