One of the most common statements that I have become aware of lately is that people are expressing that they feel so alone and out of touch with the world that they once new. Their friends, activities, behaviours, career and sometimes their families and partners just don’t seem to resonate with them any longer, and the very idea of “normal” just seems like a distant memory. To my spiritual ears, this is the greatest news; I know, you might think this is a little crazy, but let me explain.
The awakening that is taking place is gaining in momentum and more and more people are recognizing that their hearts and minds weren’t harmonizing. This contrast led them to acknowledge that something had to go – either they were going to numb themselves and no longer listen to their programmed mind-thoughts and operate like an automaton or they were going to open up, get honest with themselves and others by listening with their hearts and acting from the wisdom of their souls.
For those that have chosen to numb their mind-thoughts, they can rest assured that sooner than later that they will come back to welcoming and accepting their truth. The journey of awakening requires a committed energy to stay the course; dedication in allowing yourself to grow in compassion and forgiveness are key to your freedom.
The pivoting point in the awakening is recognizing that you can no longer demand acceptance, validation and support from those outside of you and stand fully in the truth of your very being. Those outside of you are simply living their journey and doing the best they can – it is time to walk your talk from your heart and soul.
The other day I was wondering how to clearly express what happens when the heart and mind are not in alignment and I was shown a quotation on cognitive dissonance by the late, but ahead of his time, Frantz Fanon (he was a combination of psychiatrist, philosopher, revolutionary and writer) – “Sometimes people hold a core belief that is very strong. When they are presented with evidence that works against that belief, the new evidence cannot be accepted. It would create a feeling that is extremely uncomfortable, called cognitive dissonance. And, because it is so important to protect the core belief, they will rationalize, ignore and even deny anything that doesn’t fit in with the core belief.”
So, being stuck in mind-thoughts and not listening to the heart-thoughts creates a cosmic conflict type of scenario. When the head is going in one direction and the heart in another, that is a perfect example of split energy. When this type of situation occurs, you will begin to feel energetically drained on all levels and the universe will help to place you into a situation were you will need to take some time and re-examine your thoughts and actions. This is where illnesses and accidents unfold unless we pay attention and take time to self-enquire and reflect. Remember it’s more about what happens within you than it is about what happens around you. The treasure of you, the authentic you, the Love you, is found within.
Self-awareness, self-reflection, self-knowledge, self-care and self-love, are really where it’s at. Once this has developed to be a part of your every day thoughts, your heart-thoughts and mind-thoughts begin to coalesce; you will experience ease and flow in your journey. You will then initiate a vibrational signal that will instantly attract you to others that had also been sequestered but are now in alignment (head and heart). They will have initiated their heart speak and self love practices as well.
This entire process can take time or it can happen quickly and every one of us has everything we need to catalyze the changes in our own lives; it’s taking ourselves seriously that matters most. The passion and awareness within each of us is being ignited, a sharing, a connection from one heart to another, a giving and receiving. Like a spark within the heart, let your love grow. Remember, letting go of what no longer serves you will allow what you need to arrive in perfect timing.
Leaving you with peace, love, understanding, awareness and wisdom (and of course, big hugs and butterfly kisses).
