There are those moments that many of us have
faced when everything seems to freeze and nothing seems to be working.
This can be such a powerless feeling especially when you have
experienced the flow of movement. What then. You run around in your head
hoping to find some resolve, a of a solution. This is where we
can easily become desperate.

We are suddenly
being pulled from all of the things that we feel that we must do to
keep our running. On a we have a routine of
actions that we perform in support of our reality. Whether you are in
business or working for someone else there is always a sense of
commitment to a set of conditions we have established to run our
reality. Because of this when those moments of utter “none movement”
occurs we are thrown completely off course as there is now much
uncertainty of the stability of one&;s reality. We fear a collapse of our
reality. The question is “what defines your world”. Exactly what are
the conditions by which reality exists for you? We are so involved in
running our reality and ensuring its existence according to the model
held in one’s mind  so much so that we do not see the of our
beliefs. We are unaware of the story we have told ourselves about why we
must operate the way we do or of the outcome should we do otherwise.

What
I find fascinating is to observe myself in action when I am completely
submerged in my story; the story that presents conditions and
restrictions about the operation of my reality; It is also fascinating
to observer others in their own themes for we each have a theme by which
we run our show. Here are a few themes and mechanics used in playing
out these themes:

Focus-Relationship Issues

These
are people who operate reality based on a stream of relationship
issues. Not that we all do not experience the challenges of
relationships. The difference is that some are completely focused on
“why can’t I have a good relationship”, “why can’t I find someone who
appreciates me”, “why can’t I find the perfect mate”, “why can’t I find a
mate”, “I am a good person why can’t I find someone who appreciates
me”. Another offshoot of this is the theory held by some women that
because of their success they cannot find a man that is not intimidated
by their success. Upholding such concepts only serves to ensure that
you will not encounter the appropriate mate. We must examine the truth
about what we think of ourselves. The relationship conditions
encountered are simply showing up to support the story you have told
yourself of what you are, who you are and what your deficiencies are and
also what you are deserving of. There is also fear; the question is
fear of what. There are also men who feel the same way about their
success. They have a fear of being taken advantage of and so in this
kind of theme this is what they attract. Reoccurring patterns define a
theme. Themes however present us with an opportunity to learn, expand
and make different choices.

Focus-Stability In Working And Paying Bills

This
is an interesting one as I have observed those whose main focal point
is to stay focused on maintaining a secure job and paying all their
bills. That’s it! There is no peripheral vision or chance taking.  There
entire experience is about working and paying the bills. Understand
that game players like this are unable to relate or understand those who
operate outside of this kind of stable zone.

Focus-Obsessive Spiritual Disorder

There
are those whose main objective is to save the world from itself. They
believe that the world needs to conform to their way of thinking. Such
individuals band together with others like themselves in supporting
this theme. They become radars for disorder so that they can fulfill
their theme. They actually become the projector of disharmony or none
peace as they perceive it to be in order to fulfill their theme of
saving the world. The search for peace further stabilizes a
reality/projection of just the opposite. The question is what have we
defined as peace; people kill everyday in the name of peace. At this
point many of us are recruited into supporting this projection of none
peace as the media so cleverly provides us with the necessary images.
Our is unsuspectingly spent supporting the projections of others
which we ultimately buy into in subtle ways; hence the power of
religion or spiritual organizations.

Focus-Incessant Struggle

For
some struggle is all that is known. They do not know what it is to
function outside of the realm on incessant struggle. As a matter of fact
they will create conditions to ensure that there is struggle involved.
This theme can run through an entire race of people. This like all
patterns are a challenge to break especially when one is not aware of
being caught in a theme; a pattern, the foundation upon which their
reality is built.

Focus- Martyr

Self
sacrifice or victimization is indeed a theme. There are those who are
lifelong martyrs, this is all they know. The payoff for them is the pity
received from those around. They are known as a sacrificial lamb. They
are generally quite proud of their role… as they should be. This takes
tremendous energy to consistently be in this space. 

Focus-Health

There
are those with endless health issues just one disorder after another.
They also do not know how to live without these disorders. Just like
the rest of us what would we do when our themes fail us? When this is
the role that we are used to playing it causes great confusion when
there is no illness lurking around the corner. Everything around the
life of the individual is setup to support this theme, so to shift away
from these conditions would mean a complete remodeling or demolishing
of their reality. A new construct must be built and that can be
devastating so at times health issues are resolved and some time down
the road a new one will emerge.

Focus-Striving For Recognition

Some
literally spend their lives working for recognition. Hoping that the
world sees just how “good” they are, just how talented they are, just
how worthy they are. We define the results as success. The high derived
from this journey to recognition is generally short lived. Shortly
after their achievements there is still a sense of deficiency so they
must complete yet an even more worthy accomplishment. This is an
endless quest for such beings. Like all other themes there is an
original imprint or program that initiated this theme. One has set out
on a fool’s quest but still yet great learning will come from this when
one becomes aware of this vicious cycle.  After which one can begin to
live from a space of creating and achieving for the shear conscious
pleasure of doing so. Make no mistake that we are enjoying all that we
do, there are however many levels of experiencing joy.

Focus-Misery

Yes
there are those who absolutely love misery! These are the complainers.
There is never a moment of recognizing the flow within which we all
exist. They can be considered the eternal pessimist. There is only doom
and gloom and fear. Misery is fear. There is no bright side for such
folks and so they will dismiss any such notion when presented to them.
They are convinced that this is just the way it is for them and they are
correct as they are unable to see outside of what their lifelong
theme/experience has been. This is all that they know and anything
outside of that only happens to other people. They are committed to
their misery just as we all are committed to our themes.

So
getting back to those moments when nothing seems to be working, well
from the above themes this gives you an idea of the short circuiting
that might occur when your game freezes on you. Even if you do not fit
into any of the above categories it matters not as we all have a process
and procedures by which our model of reality is run. We have routine
functions in maneuvering or navigating through our physical life. When
any of those patterns are compromised we feel helpless and challenged.
Why isn’t anything working! Especially when we have become accustomed to
things working in a certain format, we know how to generate the same
results over and over again; it has been tried and true. We know how to
meet our needs. Well what if the rules of our game is changing or has
changed for you personally. This kind of change believe it or not would
have been initiated by you of course through your thoughts and desires.
The situation however is that you did not expect those changes to
bring your life to a screeching halt. Old solutions no longer work old
survival strategies no long work, what now. As we stand in the
experience all that we can see is a pending potential for chaos and
collapse if you don’t get a handle on things. But what does get a handle
on things mean, what is it we fear is going to happen and if these
fears come to pass what does that mean for you? These are the questions
that we must ask ourselves. Remember that whatever the format that you
have been living by has simply been another illusionary construct which
has supported your game; it has been your dance with the experience we
call physical reality. This dance has of course been based on your
theme. Our entire concept of producing currency is skewed to begin with
especially for those whose entire theme has been cradled by the
production of money; financial survival. What do I mean by this; well we
have all developed set conditions by which we limit ourselves to
cash/currency production. It’s challenging for us to wrap our minds
around other possibilities not governed by third dimensional rules,
guidelines and limitations.

While to the naked
eye and to the physical processing of emotions we are fooled into
believing that there is nothing happening but what if your life as you
have been living it is simply becoming something else. The struggle and
fast paced mind work that you had operated by is in mid transit; you
are at the crossroads between worlds making the switch to a more
simplified reality. The job that you had no longer exists because for
so long you had been wishing for freedom, and a more stress free way of
sustaining one’s life. Perhaps this is why your job was terminated,
perhaps this is why your marriage/relationship ended, perhaps this is
why your house is in foreclosure, perhaps this is why you are moving,
perhaps this is why your business is failing; the question is what did
you ask for. We quickly forget what we had been asking for over the past
several years. It is very common for us to continuously verbalize what
we no longer want to deal with or experience but we are not
necessarily doing anything about it at least not from a conscious
approach. Then suddenly we are hit with change which feels quite
disabling.

When nothing seems to be working it is
best not to force the issue with old solutions especially if there is
resistance coming from within in taking old approaches. We should honor
that kind of signaling to simply stop. What is further challenging is
the feeling that you should be doing something. A sense of doom becomes
overshadowing during those moments. Sometimes there is simply nothing
to do but to ride it out. We are so conditioned to run our reality from
the autopilot self than to let go and move into a space of inner
guidance. We have even learned to manipulate that inner guidance and
this has become a familiar mode of comfort experienced by most until we
become aware of this action. Understand that one will experience
withdrawals when the standard theme is no longer dictating ones
movement. We are caught in unpredictability which generates fear; the
uncertainty of the next moment. “When nothing seems to be working” this
can be a powerful place to be. This is where you completely let go and
allow yourself to do nothing, perhaps just sitting and watching a movie
or whatever the moment directs you to do. We most often resist
engaging in these activities as we feel a sense of betrayal and
irresponsibility in not sitting and worrying about our situation. In
moments of nothing working this kind of prompting to do nothing with the
exception of simple entertainment allows the autopilot self to step
out of the way. In stepping away from the auto pilot mind and actions
we diminish the interference ran by the mind like ripples in the ocean.
We then stop or slow down the mind chatter and speculations of the
future which can only serve to slow down the unfolding of change or we
can also run the risk of creating disabling outcomes through the sheer
activation of our imagination.

It’s great to
speak and write about science/quantum physics but this entire process of
when nothing seems to be working is indeed science and again we might
not see it as that; why? Because we have a standard or set way by which
we model everything and with that we shut out any approach that does
not seem to resemble the familiar. It also reminds me of stopping to
change the tape or the battery in order to continue filming or
recording or whatever that moment of transition requires. This article
describes a simple yet significant experience that will generally
produce profound results and conclusions regardless which direction we
swing towards. So when nothing seems to be working remember that
silence can be the loudest sound you will ever hear and that the
visible world is made up of the invisible world. The particle wave
dance is making quite a splash, reforming, reshaping and rebuilding
your personal reality which you have desired and imagined into
existence. So again the question is what did you ask for; you may never
remember the assortment of desires that you have initiated but rest
assured that no matter how it unfolds it’s your dream and that moment
will pass and activity will resume!
