Where is Your Focus? — From My Heart
It comes down to a question of influence and focus – and the question: where is your focus?
Is it inside?
Or is it outside?
Which perspective holds the most influence in your life (in this moment)? Inside? Or Outside?
My inner/outer balance has been a bit out of whack of late. It’s a combination of stepping out of my comfort zone, along with some clear opportunities for spiritual growth that keep coming around to ask for (really they’re demanding) my attention.
When I’m in separation (focused outside) it’s easy to start chasing the ideas or concepts that are going to “fix” the problem or address the challenge. Running down that ramp leads to a black hole in my world. One that’s easy to fall into, and very challenging to climb out of.
When I’m focused inwardly and resonating deeply, everything – and I mean EVERYTHING – is in the groove. Oneness and wholeness are being experienced – it’s easy to trust, and the good feelings expand into every aspect of my life.
Here’s the big question: HOW to go from focusing outwardly, to focusing inside and quickly moving into deep resonance?
Is it some new thought that is introduced into the stream of frustration, fear, and anxiety that magically refocuses your energy? Not for me. I haven’t found this kind of reset button. When I introduce a new thought to get back into alignment and resonance, instead of its intended consequence I find myself drawn deeper into separation.
For me, it’s an experience that resets things. ALWAYS.
By the way: it hasn’t always been this way for me. I used to be very much about a thought based creative process and I still do plenty of thinking. After my life transformed from mortgage lender to spiritual healer (a transformation I resisted BIG TIME, BTW) I let go of my focus on thinking and belief as necessary precursors to transformation. It’s hard to argue with an experience of watching the Divine work directly through yourself despite having no specific awareness around this capability or what might unfold as a result.
Monday afternoon I had a long list of things to do and I was overwhelmed. I could tell I wasn’t in the groove – could tell my soul was disembodied. Normally I would practice embodying my soul in that moment of awareness – but I couldn’t do it on Monday. Too caught in my thought process, I simply wasn’t in a place to make that happen.
In that space I turned to my team – my guides, and asked the questions I didn’t think I had the answers to. The **very** clear response was: MEDITATE!!!
And so I did – immediately. I didn’t hold any particular focus, other than to sink into my inner resonance. Like watching a light move from the top of my head to the base of my spine. And then I was in a very deep space beyond language. Waves of resonance washing through me. When I came out the answers to all my questions were sitting there for me to pick up and work with when I was ready.
It’s clear to me that this is always true – the answer is always inside.
Is your focus inside or outside?
If outside, is a move inside of interest? What process will be utilized to support this shift?
Join me in considering these questions? I’d love to hear what unfolds for you!!
That’s it for this week … From My Heart.
