Spirit is asking us to cut out the ways we deceive ourselves with negative self talk. Our minds be lying and we have to check our rude ass thoughts. You can’t believe everything your mind tells you because sometimes your mind is a hater.
In order to have the balance we seek, we have to counter those lying thoughts with the truth. Here’s some truth: I refuse to quit. It will work out in the end and if it hasn’t worked out, it isn’t the end. I can do this. This ain’t shit to a G like me. It might sound like gassing yourself up but it isn’t. You are merely stating #facts. Do you know how far you’ve come? Do you understand how much you’ve survived? Do you understand how much your inner AND outer work is about to pay off?
So continue to persevere. Tell your thoughts that if they don’t believe you, just watch. Death is intrinsic to the cycle of life. As you move forward into your new life, your old views about yourself, your old insecurities based on ancient pains and inaccurate perceptions -- must die. You must sacrifice the lies you’ve been told or believed about how worthless you are on the altar of your wonderfulness. You must live from your new knowing and hold your head up higher.
Keep only the thoughts that honor the truth of who you truly are.
Throw the rest away.
Be patient with you. Sit with you. Get to know this new you and what this new you wants. You move so much. You are so dynamic, always changing. Have you investigated lately, to see whether what you thought you wanted is what you still want? Have new seeds been planted? Might you be surprised at what grows within you? Also, your hard work is paying off. Fist bump!
It's time for a rest. Don’t argue with me, please. I know you have 50eleven things to do because you always have 50eleven things to do, but I don’t care. REST. You have to get still to hear the small voice that directs our lives. Intuition is always right and it is always quiet. It will not shout over your agenda and your busyness. Make room for the sacred moments where direction is given. You don’t want to sit still because it hurts, I understand that too. You don’t want to feel the discomfort that awaits in the stillness. But you must. To move on, you must.
What will make you happy in the long term? You’re so easy breezy, always ready for right now. I know you’re not comfortable thinking about the future. I know you have FOMO (fear of missing out) on the moment. But moments are built, they don’t just happen. The work you put in now pays off later. What do you want? Not just right now, but a year from now, five years from now, twenty years from now? What do you want the future to look like? What are you building? Your keywords this week are: Foundation, patience, discipline, durability, sustainability, focus.
Get through these trying times with the inner balance that is your specialty. Not either/or. Both/ and. The dark and the light. The pleasure and the pain. The doubt and the faith. Don’t let your emotions scatter your efforts. Remain focused, keep your eyes on the prize. Rest if you have to, but don’t stop. One foot in front of the other. Almost home.
But what do you REALLY want, Leo? In your heart of hearts? What do you DESIRE, in your warm, dark places? What makes you tingly? Be true to you, even if it's hard, even if figuring it out brings out all the feels. You can create whatever you like, as long as you know what you like. You don’t need to ask anyone else, either. The answers you seek are inside you. This is your moment, use it wisely.
Go into your darkness, your sadness, your beginning. Look squarely in the face of all that has gone down. So much went wrong, but so much went right, too. Count your blessings. Go past the pain to the child who believes, who still lifts their arms toward loved ones. Pick that baby up. Pick yourself up. Know that life can be good and go forth and enjoy life’s goodness.
Try not to expend your energy speeding through life talking, talking, talking about what you want and what you know. Go within and experience. Get out of the hypothetical mind and into experiential body. Admitting you don’t know everything leaves you free to go figure some things out. Have an adventure. Explore the unknown.
You are doing well for yourself and people are noticing. Are you feeling like an impostor? That’s real, I get it. It's hard to live up to our own hype sometimes. But don’t get so trapped in who people think you are, that you become trapped away from becoming who you want to be. It's okay to keep developing yourself. We are works in progress, never finished. Stop holding on so tightly to who you think you are that you don’t let yourself change when you want to. Release your old self so your new self can shine. Release pretend mastery for a real lesson.
You ain’t fooling nobody. You want it ALL. You want the WORLD. And you shall have it. Be vulnerable and transparent about how high your standards are. Don’t settle. Celebrate your choices and your preferences. Don’t worry that some think you sit “too high” on your horse. Just enjoy the view from up there.
You have fought hard for what you have, and no one can take that away from you. Did you hear me? NO ONE CAN TAKE THAT FROM YOU. Your victory is assured. You’ve done the work, now watch it happen. Be patient and keep focused on long term growth. LONG TERM. Set boundaries. No time / resources wasters allowed. Get your game face on. Focus.
Keep the faith. I know you are weary, but trust you have everything you need. And what’s going on with your thinking? As above, so below, remember? Its not what happens, its what we tell ourselves about what happens. Spirit is helping you every step of the way. You are not now, nor have you ever been, alone.
Get grounded. Go out into nature and put your toes in the earth. Know that always, in all ways, the great mother supports you. You can’t find the solutions in your mind. Life is lived, not solved. You can’t get there from there. You can either wish for the changes you want, or you can go out and make them happen. But first, put your toes in the earth. Do something that makes you sweat. Become aware of the power in your own two hands, your feet, your voice. Success is in every direction, just MOVE.
