Waking Up to Who You Are
The majority of the people on this planet now recognize that there is more to this thing we call life than what our textbooks and versions of history have been telling us. Life is so much more than what you have ever thought it to be. And you are more powerful than you have ever thought possible. This is the first of an on-going series that will focus on the topic of Waking Up.
Many people on this planet use the term Waking Up to describe various different boxes of thoughts and beliefs that they now hold as their truth. This term is used often in the metaphysical and spiritual communities as a way to explain to others that “I used to believe this, but now I see a larger picture and believe this”. Many in these communities also layout and offer to you a path to follow that they believe will allow you to reach an awakened and enlightened state. The paths offered and the boxes of belief systems available to you are infinite and choosing one can be extremely intimidating, leaving you with feelings of being small and feelings that this is a difficult thing to accomplish.
You do not need to spend your days meditating to reach a larger understanding of what life is. Your emotions and feelings are your ultimate guide throughout your process of Waking Up. Listen to yourself, for you are the only one that has the answers for you. You have within you, every bit of knowledge and understanding that you will ever need or want. Actively use your intention to drive yourself along your path of waking up. It is through your intention that you attract to you the experiences that you desire. Ask yourself how you intend your processes to go and keep this intention strong and active in your mind – this will increase the power of your intention and you will find examples of how powerful you truly are. Example: I intend to attract to me exactly what is right for me in each moment. I intend to shift with ease and grace. I intend my process of waking up to be easy and fun.
We offer to you an opportunity at this moment to let go of any definition of the term Waking Up that you have taken on. Waking Up simply means that you are now more consciously aware of who you are than you had been. Waking Up is an on-going process of discovery and remembrance of who you are and what life is all about. Letting go of belief systems that you have taken on is all part of moving above and beyond what you have already learned – a stepping-stone.
Every understanding is a stepping-stone throughout this journey of waking up to who you truly are. We are all energetically attracted to that which we resonate with, understand, and that which just makes sense to us. This in other words can be thought of as the stepping-stones you’re currently working with. Keeping this concept close to you throughout your waking up processes will help you to not get attached to belief systems and particular ways of doing things.
Change is a constant in life and if we let go of the resistance towards growing we find ourselves pushing past, and moving forward beyond our current level of understanding.
Every belief system is a stepping stone to a larger understanding and once you fully realize the magnitude of this statement, you will find yourself letting go of the ideas of one persons beliefs being more true than another. You are where you are on your path of understanding because you brought yourself here. Do you still resonate with the belief systems that you were given as a child or have you let many of them go and you now see a larger picture?
Some of the best advice that we can ever give to you is to take all of the information that you resonate with and throw the rest out. Resonation is a feeling of understanding, a feeling of “yes, that makes sense to me”. Taking in what resonates with you is part of using your feelings as a guide. Trust your feelings and use them to know what is best for you in the moment.
Whether you consciously believe this yet or not, you are the creator of your experiences. You create every thought, every relationship, every experience you have in this life. If you don’t accept this as your truth yet, it is okay. Owning your power is like exercising a muscle – exercise your power and you find that it grows each time.
You are so much more than the physicality of your body. The physicality that you think of as yourself, your individuality, is a tiny blip on the screen of who you truly are. The physical world that you live in and that you believe surrounds you, is simply an experiential offering to experience yourself.
You are everything in this universe and we are all one in the same. Everything is energy and the energy of Love and Unity is who you truly are - everything else is within Love and Unity. From a larger understanding, everything is Love. That which you refer to as life is an opportunity for you, Love Energy, to experience yourself. It is as simple as that but you must let go of your judgment, your beliefs in right and wrong, to even begin to understand this concept.
This is just the beginning. You have only begun to remember.
