The concept that everything is perfect right now, not only in our lives, but in the world, is a challenging concept to swallow. But it is also very relaxing to realize that we need only to shift our perspective on what we are experiencing to dramatically change the quality of our life experiences.
Everything in life can be relaxing, even when we are in the middle of chaos.
When I say that everything is perfect, what I mean is that everything we think, feel, and experience in what we perceive as the “outside world” is a perfect reflection of who we are at any given moment. It is a perfectly accurate snapshot of our energy, transformed into thoughts, feelings, events, and energetic patterns.
What we call reality is a holographic mirror of our inner states of being: mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual.
We always have the choice on how we react or respond to any situation, thought, or emotion. Reaction is generally a knee-jerk response that has been conditioned by habit or training from family, religion, culture, or past experiences and a desire to protect ourselves from further hurt. To respond to a situation is different than to react to one.
React or respond?
When we respond, it is implied, I feel, that we have paused for just a moment to reflect, before deciding what is the most beneficial or appropriate way to proceed.
Our lives are actually magical and full of wondrous details and opportunities for love, friendship, moments of encounter and discovery, sharing, and growth. When we are pulled into frightening, challenging, life or death situations or when our lives appear to be humdrum, without excitement or perspectives for hope, we face our deepest shadows.
Our life is a work of art that we are creating in every moment.
Anxiety, depression, anger, fear, hatred…the spectrum of emotions and expressions generated by our pain and feelings of lack – lack of self-love, shame, lack of self-empowerment all work together to produce situations in our lives to prod us to look ourselves in the eye and to take stock of our lives.
The shadow is the sum of creative energies that we have either suppressed or misunderstood.
For if our lives are full of drama and despair and our hearts are not at peace, then our world is indeed a perfect reflection of our inner personal state as well as being an illustration of the collective unconscious.
Becoming more self-aware and more loving of self is the fulcrum by which we can leverage our shift from depression to joy. Taking responsibility for the perfection of our life journey, no matter what it looks like, is the ultimate act of self-empowerment.
Taking responsibility for our inner lives allows us to emerge from depression back into joy.
To be able to show gratitude for whatever manifests in our lives is true power and is the key to shifting from acting and feeling like a victim to being a teacher, healer, mentor, or a creator of realities that reflect a more ascended perspective.
Our current reality or collective state of consciousness (which could be labeled Patriarchy, if we want to resort to labels) focuses on separation, blame, shame, lack, control, and hierarchy.
Whenever I am going through a difficult situation, I remind myself that everything that I have created in my reality is perfect, because I am responsible for its creation. There are still aspects of my shadow that manifest, coming up for expressions of gratitude and release.
It is impossible to be born and grow up on Earth as a human being without being indoctrinated or conditioned. It is up to each of us to wake up and to remember our true nature, as multi-dimensional creators of realities.
This is how we get out of our conditioned victim state that is run by our ego. This is how we ascend to the 5th dimension and beyond. It’s all about taking responsibility for what we create and for giving thanks for all that we are experiencing now or have experienced at some point along the way.
The world doesn’t always have to be as it is now.
It is a perfect reflection of a system that we have accepted as truth. We have accepted to play the roles of victims, persecutors, rescuers. As we shift our inner landscapes, that which we experience collectively will automatically mirror our personal growth.
As many people worry about the escalating chaos, anger, hatred, and polarity in the world, it’s the perfect time to look inward and to see how we can heal those very same expressions of emotional pain, division, separation, and lack in ourselves. The perfection of life is such that when we do our inner work, we are, in a very real way, healing the world.
