Today’s energy asks us to think about who we really are versus who we pretend to be. It’s just like that Marianne Williamson quote: “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our Light, not our Darkness, that most frightens us.” We are magical and able to manifest whatever we desire, but instead of disciplining our thoughts to hold the vibration that brings us the most joy, we imagine worst case scenarios, or get lost in fantasies. We are supernaturally powerful but since we are focused on our fears (thus bringing them to life) we have become our own worst enemy. Instead of feeling secure, we are feeling overwhelmed, insecure, easily manipulated and afraid of criticism. We are basing our actions on who we USED to be, instead of who we ARE.
Spirit is asking you to get grounded. Get on your square. Stand on your foundation as if your life depended on it. It is better to live in your own shack than pretend to live in your friend’s mansion. It might feel counter intuitive to lean into a reality you feel is inadequate, but it is your propensity for mental escapism that keeps you from realizing your reality is good enough. Because its YOURS. You’re fantasizing about “better” circumstances because you worry about having a weak foundation, but it only feels like your foundation is weak BECAUSE you won’t remain present long enough to build from where you ARE instead of draining your energy maintaining the illusion that you’ve already arrived where you're going.
At the end of the day, you’re sabotaging yourself because you’re afraid. Some of you are trapped in unhealthy relationship dynamics, and you know that as soon as you gain mental clarity, ground yourself, and grow as tall as you can from solid roots, there will be vultures to pick off your low hanging fruit. So you think it's easier to pretend you aren’t thriving, rather than strut in your power and fight off the looters who will surely come. You’re feigning weakness to protect yourself, but doing so only hurts you in the long run.
The thing is, your weakness is an illusion but your strength is REAL. You are so much stronger than you know. Except you must fully INHABIT your strength in order to defeat those who would try to usurp your strength. Not living up to your full potential is too high a price to pay for peace. Embrace your excellence and learn how to discern and dismiss anyone trying to manipulate your magic. Its 2017; ain’t nobody got time to play small.
