Right through each day we have the choice to see what happens through the eyes of our Soul or from the perspective of ego – beginning as soon as we wake up. Observe how you are when you wake up and what kind of thoughts you are having as well as what kind of emotions you are experiencing. And do you tend to want to bury your head under the covers and avoid waking up?
Most people wake up with a sense of anxst or tension, in a state of hypnosis – hypnotised by the widely held belief in the world that separation and fear are real and it’s a matter of making the best of a troubled and difficult world. For the most part, we feel on our own, alone, caught in a sense of me.
It’s so different to wake up and attune to your Higher Self, your Soul, to the Divine being that you are. This has you connecting to your Self and the Love, Power and Wisdom within you. Now you are empowered. Then you could focus on the power and willpower within you until you have a strong sense of this. Now focus on joy and repeat this word until you feel it vibrating through your energy field.
Making time to meditate and journal when you get up, strengthens your connection to your Soul and the purpose of your life, your day. You are stronger and clearer. You are Soul attuned and so it will be easier to see lessons that come up as challenges and opportunities to grow – and not as bummers.
When you are pulled to see something that upsets you from the perspective of ego, you will be quicker to be aware of your choice to react from your ego [and its interpretation of put down] or to respond from your Soul and your desire to learn and grow.
When you have made a mistake and reacted, you will be quicker to not give power away to your critical inner parent and self abuse and, instead, to love and forgive yourself and determine to improve and not make that mistake again.
Some months ago I found myself reacting to another’s anger with anger. I took myself off to get something. As I walked down the stairs I thought, oh Gill, lesson, challenge, opportunity and I smiled. Then I could see more clearly than ever before the choice before me – put the other down expressing my “righteous” anger or choose love. Choosing love felt good – not just for the other but for me too.
