In today’s climate of forward thinking, self-improvement seems to be a goal we all strive for; growth, change, becoming the most authentic and loving version of ourselves that we can be.
We seek to consciously create our own lives, to find our meaning and our purpose. But while all these things are important, they have become an end in themselves. An end that appears to have no end in sight.
What if I told you that where you are right now is perfect? What if you were exactly where you needed to be? What if you’re growth was already taken care of?
I’m sure it would take a lot of your stress away.
When we seek to be better, the energetic stamp we send out to the universe is that we are not whole. “I am broken. I need fixing. I’m not where I need to be and I am not what I should be.” Those thoughts and feelings are powerful. They are based in fear. They are based in lack.
This therefore becomes the reality that we create for ourselves. This not only makes sense metaphysically, but from a psychological perspective too. Thoughts become things. What we think we attract. So if we think we are lacking, then that is what we will experience.
But how do we stop this fear of lack?
We stop the desire to not have lack in the first place.
We do this by embracing the belief that the universe already provides us exactly what we need. If we are provided for, then we are not lacking.
Now truly accepting this belief is easier said than done and the concept is bandied around the spiritual community like no other. It does have a basis in truth however, and it is understanding why that is helpful.
That which we resist persists. So if we embrace our fears and emotions (our lacks) instead of ignoring them we can free ourselves. They then become our saving graces. It is only when we attempt to silence our internal chatter, that we bury these concerns.
Merely using positive affirmations that we are being provided for will not help to remove what we suppress. That which goes in, must come back out. By facing these fears and feeling these emotions from our past, we free the subconscious mind and therefore do not attract similar situations or people to resolve our issues. We break the cycle and no longer experience the same lessons but in different clothing.
When our subconscious mind doesn’t match the desires of our conscious mind, then we will not attract that which we desire. There is a reason for this. A very good reason.
We could say that it is our subconscious mind that connects to our Spirit. Our subconscious mind knows our fears and our desires. It is this subconscious mind that attracts the people and situations into our lives that we feel we do not want; the partner, the job, the life.
So what is the reason for this?
We actually want them. We need these experiences. We need these challenges. We need these people and these situations in order to get closer and closer to the truth of our Spirit.
Our subconscious mind is linked to our higher self. We may not always like that which we attract, but we attract it so that we can get to the point of consciously creating the reality that we desire to manifest. Attempting to consciously create when our subconscious mind is not in alignment will not work.
That’s why so many people do not attract that which they feel they desire; because deep down, they do not desire it. Deep down, their Spirit does not need it. Deep down, it is not in their pathway.
Our higher self knows exactly what it needs and it speaks to us through our subconscious. Therefore we are never lacking because we are always being guided to where we most need to go. Our growth is taken care of. We already have everything. We are already being shown the way. We are being provided for. The Universe is providing and that is because the Universe is within you.
The goal may be to get to a point of consciously creating and manifesting the reality of our dreams. But we reach this point when we are ready. When our subconscious mind is in alignment with our conscious mind and we truly desire to manifest that which we consciously desire.
Not because we feel we should. Should is not the moment. Should is not our truth. Should is not our present. Should is what creates the struggle.
So why struggle? Why fight your subconscious? Why not trust your own internal wisdom? When you want something go for it. When you don’t, know that this is your Spirit guiding you. Bask in your truth, regardless of what it is and take the stress out of your life.
You are exactly where you need to be. Nothing in your life is an accident. You are not an accident. There are no mistakes. There are no wrongs. Even your resistance is part of the process. We are simply spiritual beings being drawn to that which brings us back to our own magnificence and light.
Everything is Spirit and so everything is perfect.
That is why you are exactly where you need to be.
