Love and Unity

There is a battle raging in our world and within ourselves –separation, fear, conflict versus unity, love, harmony. What’s happening in our world is really out-picturing what is happening within ourselves. The more we work to transmute inner conflict into harmony, peace and love, the more we will radiate these energies out into the world.

Every time you are pulled out of peace, you are experiencing conflict and part of our work in managing our energies is to transmute the conflict into harmony. Most of us live, most of the time, in a state of disharmony or conflict and mostly we are not aware of this.

There is a tendency to feel defeated, depressed by the conflict in the world – powerless to change this. However, the one person you can change is yourself and if you choose to take on the work of transmuting all inner and outer conflict in your life into harmony, peace and love – you can make a difference in our world.

Often if you are caught in inner conflict, it is mirrored in your outer life. Decide that you are going to observe yourself and to become aware of the times you are experiencing inner conflict or disharmony.  Make sure to journal about these experiences so that you understand the cause of your inner conflict. You may believe the cause is outside of you, but the cause is within you. Don’t try to work this out in your head as this just keeps it in the mental loop, at a mental level. You need to write it down, to see it physically, so that you can get clear and understand better. You might need to journal a few times on similar issues before you get more clarity and understanding. You will need patience and persistence.

When you observe yourself out of peace and experiencing conflict, ask yourself what’s upsetting you and use your journal to help you to get clear. Become aware of the power in you to transmute this experience of conflict into harmony. An example might be, you become aware that you are sitting tensely, anxious, and you choose to focus on peace or harmony and to relax your body. Try it.

Or you become aware that you are experiencing inner conflict and, when you journal about it, you realise that you are worrying about something, anticipating trouble or a negative outcome in a situation.  So you tell yourself that worry is of no use and that you need to focus on positive expectation, to focus on what you want and not on what you don’t want.  As you use your mind and don’t allow your feelings to run you, you transmute your experience of conflict into harmony and peace. Repeat the words harmony, peace a few times and feel the energy of these in your being and how good this is.

Living a more structured Life

We need to use our time here wisely and efficiently. We need to be consistently adding to life, taking initiative to grow and discover more, to deepen our understanding. Life is a precious opportunity.

Life is so full of distractions and noise and we seek them out as if we need them. This has just become an unquestioned habit. It’s great to ask yourself do I really need the radio on – the content may be interesting me but is this the best use of my time now? Noise and distractions rob us of the sense of space and time. When you’re tempted to turn on the TV and flop down in front of it, ask yourself is this really relaxing me. What else could I do with this time? Allow your mind to reflect on this.

We need time to be still, to be silent, to reflect.

Just think each of us has 168 hours to fill in the week.

What do we do with this? How do you use your time? What are the distractions in your life? What are the time wasters?

Journaling Exercise:

If you were to divide your day like a pie what gets attention and how much attention? What gets left out generally or almost completely?

What are the time wasters?

What changes would you like to make to this pie?

What do you want to include in the time available to you in each day, in the week?

To include something more you very often have to sacrifice something – what might this be for you?

What surprised you as you did this exercise?

Watch that victim feeling that might arise – a sense of not having any choice, the feeling that this is all too much. Don’t give into that.

Look at what you have written and ask your Higher Self and Spirit to enlighten you as to what will help you to have more order and structure and how you will fit in time to be quiet and still, meditate and journal and plan. Generate personal power and feel strong.

Creating more structure

More order and structure in your life will improve the quality of your life and you will have time to fit in quiet reflective time for you.

Deciding what time you will go to bed and what time you will get up is an important part of bringing more structure into your life. It’s all too easy to sit on in front of the TV flicking from one channel to another or continuing to watch some programme even though it’s not of real interest to you.

You get so much more relaxation and space from turning off the TV or deciding to have a TV-free evening. Listening to uplifting music has such a calming effect and while you do that you could read or journal, be more present in the moment. You could think about goals you want to set for yourself and how you will go about achieving them. This can be a good time to plan for the next day so that you are in charge and making time for what you want to get done and fitted in.

Planning for meals can be, not only a time saver, but also mean you prepare the kind of nutritious meals you want. When you have no plan or a vague one, you are more likely to fall back on the foods that are less nutritious just to fill the gap.

Making a clear choice about screen time is another matter to include as you aim to bring more order and structure into your day and week. Computers can eat time up and certainly don’t leave you rested and prepared for sleep. It’s good to decide on the time you will close down your screen for the evening and be very definite about this. It’s also good to decide how much time you will give to social media, surfing the net or emails.

Time can be eaten up with TV and other screens – with busy-ness generally, leaving no time for quiet and inner, reflective space.

One of the best decisions I ever made in creating more order in my life was to get up earlier and have a silent hour to start my day – including in that time, meditation, journaling and Spiritual reading.
