So many times it’s easy to get pulled into a contraction in our life when we feel hurt, sad or disappointed.
I realized recently that even if we have received so much in life in so many ways, there is an aspect of being human that tends to focus on the contraction; as opposed to recognizing all the abundance, love and goodness that has showered us over the course of our life. If I allow my consciousness to be single focused on one thing that bothers me, I suffer. When I expand my consciousness beyond the contraction into the totality of my life, I experience freedom.
When I focus my consciousness on all the beauty, love, blessings, miracles and abundance that has graced my life; I start to feel immense love, gratitude and appreciation in my heart. I start to feel an expanded inner fullness from within. A yummy “more then enoughness”. A deep love for life. I feel this fullness circulating within and I experience inner fulfillment. Gratitude and appreciation for everything that we have experienced and received in life is a pathway to unlocking our own inner wealth.
We still experience the contractions in life that come from living a full human life in totality (embracing all emotions), yet we have a choice to choose where we will place our energy. And in the moments when I feel a contraction, yet expand my consciousness beyond the contraction…the contraction doesn’t have so much power over me, and my state of being naturally opens to this fullness within.
When I realize how fortunate I have been to live such a beautiful life on this Earth, my heart can’t help but expand more fully into the love that I am. This Earth and human life that we are experiencing is so rich and steeped with so much beauty…sunsets, the ocean, the forests, islands, lakes, strawberries, butterflies, flowers, olive trees, and crickets. There is so much abundance and diversity of life on the planet. A colorful mosaic of expansions. And we are also expansions.
I feel like the totality of life is pure abundance and fullness. There is no lack. Lack is only a creation of the mind that can’t comprehend the totality of our existence. When we merge with that which is beyond our personal self, we remember that we are abundance, love and beauty incarnate because we are not separate from the source of that which grows the trees and gives birth to all of life on Earth.
The heart that dwells in the vibration of gratefulness, appreciation and love will always be overflowing…and is a source spring of refreshment for others to drink from, and is a torchlight of truth on this Earth where so many have forgotten the bountiful nature of our existence.
Choose to live in this beauty, and open to grace. She is calling.
I love you.
