Everywhere I turn people seem to be struggling to make sense of
what they are feeling and the extreme challenges they are faced with
in their lives. We appear to be so inundated with just doing the best
we can to survive that we have lost sight of what is important to us
and our most cherished values and desires. In a strange way, life
appears to be interfering with how we think it should be, and so we
fight against it. Ironic, really.

The thing is, in order to
move into the life of our dreams, we must let go of what currently is,
in order for what it is we want to be able to manifest in our lives. In
my own experience my “old life” was blown apart. The proverbial rug
was pulled out from underneath me to catapult me into the chasm of the
unknown. I remember being very confused and scared, left feeling
extremely vulnerable, as everything seemed to spiral out of my control.
The upside to that phase in my life (although I didn’t know it at the
time) was that I was being given the opportunity to put into practice
all the spiritual ideals and concepts that I had read about and was
told about in many workshops.

Now I could test the tools and
techniques that I had been shown. It was like my right of passage to
fully integrating what I had learned and knew in my mind, to actually
living it so I could authenticate the potential that is common to each
of us. I was also given the time and opportunity to be able to dedicate
myself to the ensuing transition and really get clear on what it was I
felt I wanted to experience in the future. It certainly wasn’t a
conscious choice to leave what I knew at that time, but as scary as it
was, I was able to create another life that was beyond my wildest
comprehension and experience the unfolding of synchronistic events that I
(my small self) could not have orchestrated even if I tried. God
always does it better. Why does it take so much to get that?

Since
the demise of the old and experiencing the new, my journey has been
nothing short of amazing. Even though my small self (ego) wanted
so-called control back in my life, my Higher Self (Soul) knew exactly
what was for my greatest good and where I needed to go. No matter how
hard I tried to get myself back on track and into the game that I had
grown to know and understand, the more frustrated I became as to why
nothing was working in my favour…or so I thought! It was only when I was
able to let go of resistance to what was happening to me and begin to
really trust in the process that the magic began to unfold.

I
am sharing this with you because I absolutely know from my own
experience that resisting what is happening in our life is futile. I am
sure you have experienced the same. It causes more stress and anxiety
for ourselves and will only push our frustration level to a maximum…and
that is not good for our overall well-being. We are currently
experiencing a transition into a new way being, and it is during these
transitions that the old way has to fall away for the new to become
manifest in our field of experience. And here’s the catch: during these
times of growth, evolution and transition, it is only our Higher Self
(Soul) that knows what is best for us and can lead us into the life we
were born to live.

It has been said that we are \"dying\" while
remaining in this physical dimension. In other words, we don’t have to
leave our body to be reborn and ascend into a fifth dimensional
reality. Yes, there are those that will still leave their body and
cross over in accordance with their Soul contract, but that does not
mean one journey is any better or worse than another. All is perfect
from the Soul’s perspective and that is why we need to completely let
go and allow our journey to unfold as it will, regardless of how we
judge it to be.

The good news in all this is that the part of
us that is dying is the negative ego aspect – the small self that is
anchored in fear. What does this really mean? To start, become more
aware of all the negative self talk such as, “It’s not possible, I
can’t afford it, I’m not good enough, I’m not worthy, there’s not
enough to go around, I’m going to get sick,” etc. Every thought and
belief we hold that is coming from lack and limitation is what we are
now transmuting and transcending, which spells the death of fear and
the small ego self. This is the ultimate goal for us to attain.

Please
don’t misunderstand me here; I’m not suggesting this process is a walk
in the park (although that is highly recommended during difficult
times!) It takes a great deal of courage to let go of what we have known
and how we have seen the world and surrender to our Higher Self. This
does not mean becoming passive and retreating from life. What it does
mean is to become aware of how we are limiting ourselves through the old
entrenched beliefs based in fear and then become diligent in releasing
any pain associated with those beliefs. This action creates a void, or
some space for us to then deepen our connection to our Higher Self
that will always lovingly inspire us, guide us and nurture us into a
greater expression of who we are. This is our purpose and mission: to
fully awaken to our true essence and inspire the way for others to
follow.

Back to resistance. If we are truly making the
transition from the old fear-based reality to one of peace, love and
harmony, the way this can be achieved is through the portal of the
heart – our connection to that Divine spark that we already are. As we
allow the light within us, to be more present in our lives, anything
that is no longer for our highest good will ultimately dissolve in our
reality. This may not always make any sense at the time, or be a
comfortable process, but by forgoing resistance and trusting that our
Higher-Self knows what is needed for us to ascend into a higher
dimension of love, we make the transition much easier for ourselves.
The Divine within us knows our blueprint for being here at this time,
we just need to get out of the way and allow the highest expression of
who we are to shine through and assist for the greater good in ways
that we may not yet see.

The big word here is TRUST. When fear
has us tightly in its grip, trusting that life is unfolding always for
our highest good – even when it can be ugly – is often difficult. From
my experience, the best way to navigate these tumultuous times is to
give up resisting what already is in our life (acceptance) and seek the
of the within us. As we develop this inner
reflective relationship and live through our heart (that is
continually being opened as we let go of the fear and limitations of
the past), in "a blink of an eye" we find ourselves in a place that
feels so natural and wonderful. This is the place that has been
awaiting our return; the place where peace, love and harmony are found –
in the stillness of our open hearts. It is here where we get to
experience the freedom of who we really are!

It’s all God…
