The antidote of overwhelm and not manifesting what you long for

The antidote of overwhelm and not manifesting what you long for

The antidote of overwhelm and not manifesting what you long for.

Outwardly it can look quiet.

But those periods of replenishing, going inside looking at the pictures of our inner mind, listening to our inner voice, are the most important base of the outcome of our experiences later when we’re taking the actions.

We first have to become the energy of what we long for.

When I was 11 years old I had a strange accident that catapulted my consciousness out of my body.

All at once I was surrounded with the deepest love imaginable – I saw everyone, heard it all – the panicked shouting and the business that was going on – but all was well.

Everything and everyone was exactly as it was supposed to be. All the external noise was stripped and what stayed was a vast space of love, acceptance, stillness and a meaningful intelligence were I could see the connection and worthiness of every individual person, flower, bird and drop of water in the river I looked upon.

It was a moment that has shaped me forever and has helped me to find my way back to me when I felt absolutely shattered and lost.

And I forgot about it too. As we all do.

What brought me back to this place and awareness has always been art, music, poetry. It is nature’s magic that reminds me of the makings of my soul.

What brought me back to this place and awareness has always been art, music, poetry. It is nature’s magic that reminds me of the makings of my soul.

So, when you feel the need to go inward, to pick up a pen and write a poem, to find a place in your garden to create a secret place of devotion by planting a seed and watch it grow, know this: 

It is your soul calling you to come home. 

 

You are loved. 

You have all the instruments, all the beauty, all life and love, all the music you ever want, already at your disposal inside of you.

What can you do NOW?

At times when we feel the burn of everything that overwhelms us the most, we don’t really believe there is a way out, other than pushing through. 

Sometimes we hide and try to avoid what overwhelms us.  Or we make the decision to freeze up…, like little insects playing dead, hoping it will pass. 

But to break it down for us and make it very, very simple:

there are, in the end, only two movements that we respond to: Fear or Love.

The part in us that wants to hold us safe, and is even willing to accept the pain it is used to, responds to fear. It is there to preserve, contain, keep in place. What ‘is’ may not break.

So we have learned to do all that. And we have become experts in it. We have all, each of us, highly developed “control rooms’ in our heads that influence our every move, thought, and word we speak.      

But then we have this life force that makes us do silly things, that urges us to just try! For the sake of it, for the joy, for the experience of it. We see it abundantly in little children, the creative force that responds to love. 

It is an expanding movement. It connects.

We find love highly confusing. 

Our life experiences have taught us to be weary for people who suck our energy dry. Who have, in the past, used our vulnerability to fulfill their own confused minds or false needs. 

We live in a world that actively feeds on our fear, scarcity, guilt, and all our other emotions that bind us to ‘reacting’ instead of responding.   

The key is to start responding to what it is that you do want. To actively open up time in your planner to do what gives you joy. To what moves you. 

I have learned that small actionable baby steps towards the experience of love will move mountains and will open up possibilities and outcomes that are deeply fulfilling to you and the people you care for the most.

I know that love itself is enough – and that we all are enough. But my mind will probably always try to convince me that it isn’t. Let’s not beat ourselves up about that.

Let’s be kind and compassionate leaders of the life we do want to live in – let’s create the business that fulfills us, let’s nurture the relationships that bring us joy and let us enjoy each others evolving development.

It takes a lot of guts to choose love.

It makes us feel our emotions. Our vulnerability. Our humanity. 

When you surrender to being YOU and start to respond with little, consistent actions and answers, from a place of trust – knowing you have all you will ever need inside of you already – you will begin to experience a feeling of peace and fulfilment throughout everything you will encounter.

You know, ending overwhelm is not about ‘the others’ – manifesting the life we want is not about ‘the car’ itself. It is us being in the state we long for – by responding to love – and the universe lining up behind what we resonate from our soul. 

Thank you for all you are. Thank you for being you. Thank you for being love.

      Thank you so much Deborah. It was not long ago that I heard about the goddess Kuan Yin, the Chinese bodhisattva of compassion.
      Every time I hear from her, something deep inside me starts to move.
      A beautiful way of connecting to that part in us that does experience the healing of compassion is to look at the world and our life’s as if we are looking through her eyes.
      There are Oracle Cards out there, beautiful stories, but I also believe that standing in the energy of our own compassionate power from a soul connection will bring us to this flowing source as well.
      I am not sure why I am telling you this, but I hope it resonates with you.
