Are you feeling a calling to shift?
Before the Shift
From the moment we get into school we take on the energy of ambition. The ambition to study hard, get ahead, get into a good college and get a good job in order to have a good life.
We are taught that we have to compete, that we have to strive to be the winner and that we have to be super ambitious in order to get where we want to be.
While there is some truth in that, many of us get caught up in idle ambition. In going after something or someone in order to feel fulfilled and to have the life that we think we desire.
This is the work of the ego or the false self, who likes to repeatedly tell us that we need something outside of ourselves to get what we truly desire. That through having more and more that we will feel satisfied with our lives.
The trap with this line of thinking however, is that more is never enough, and the ambition to keep having grows and grows until we end up leading a life where we ultimately feel unsatisfied.
This lack of satisfaction then leads to a searching. A searching that will hopefully and ultimately lead to a shift or an awakening.
It is usually when we have reached rock bottom in our lives that we call on something deeper, that we no longer look outside of ourselves for the answers, but instead we look within.
This moment is the Shift and moves us out of ambition and into meaning. Instead of idly pursing things for the sake of having more “stuff” suddenly we start thinking about a bigger purpose.
This then leads to a greater understanding of the Universe. That life is not about trying to control and get head but really it is about joining the flow and allowing life to live you instead of the other way around.
To surrender to this place takes a lot of trust, and often this trust can only be found in truly understanding and connecting with your higher self and the Divine.
To put it in perspective, we were all created by the flow of the Divine. From the moment of our conception to the first nine months of our lives, we had no control, we simply allowed the Universe to do its thing and why should that stop?
This doesn’t mean that we take a passive approach to life, but instead it means that we should trust in our inner wisdom and that our beings know exactly what it is that we need without our interference.
Through this understanding, ambition turns into meaning which then turns into purpose.
Living your purpose is all about trusting in the rhythm of life, detaching from the outcome and knowing that whatever needs to show up will do so at the perfect time as long as you are paying attention.
Instead of pushing things along, you instead just allow life to take over.
As Wayne Dyer states- “don’t die with your music still in you”– and the only way you can release this music is by allowing things to flow. Your song is already written, you just have to play the tune.
If all of these thoughts seem absurd to you, it is because you are yet to experience the Shift. For those of you who are resonating with this on some level, a Shift has probably already happened or is in process.
After The Shift
Many have been talking about the changes occurring in September 2015 and part of these changes include rapid Shifts taking place in our consciousness.
These shifts will manifest differently in men and women. Men are more likely to move their values away from money, achievement and pleasure and into spirituality, peace and family.
Women are more likely to move their values from family, independence and attractiveness to personal growth, spirituality and self-esteem.
In fact, if you are experiencing a shift in your own consciousness, perhaps assess your values now and see how they were different from just a few months ago.
Shifting is really about getting to the place where you feel guided by something higher than just yourself. This includes following your own intuition, synchronicities and Divine guidance.
When you step into this place of being, miracles happen on a daily basis and you begin to understand a whole new way of living.
This doesn’t mean that life won’t present obstacles and challenges, but it will allow you to face those obstacles with a more relaxed and peaceful approach.
Instead of chasing abundance, prosperity and happiness, you allow it to flow through you. You realize that it is all around, all you have to do is let it in.
