Navigating this Journey into Consciousness



The point of life is not to get anywhere – it is to notice that you are, and have always been, already there. There is no such thing as an incorrect path – for on this journey you cannot “not get” where you are going.

~ Neale Donald Walsch


Navigating these waters of life can be challenging at times. Some days, everything is awesome and life is good. Other days, we may feel like we are treading water and barely staying afloat. This journey into consciousness reminds us that everyone is having their own human life experience.

Subsequently, we are typically at different places on this journey. Metaphysically speaking, some people are just now “waking up,” and some have been “awake” for a while. New relationships, relationships ending, birth, death, and career transitions tend to be milestones that mark our journey.

Our guides continually remind us to meet people where they are rather than feeling everyone already knows what we want/need, that our way is the only way, and so on. Everyone experiences life in different ways, is immersed and sometimes enmeshed in their own reality, has their own perception, level of awareness, way of receiving information, among others.

Remember, your soul is already awake. It is your human-ness that is waking up and connecting to the knowing-ness of your soul. The “waking up” process is an on-going process of consciousness and awareness.

Strengthening your relationship with Spirit involves heightening your awareness and taking note of everyone and everything that comes into your awareness. Don’t be obsessive. Rather, begin to acknowledge what you experience through your senses as you focus your energy in the present moment. Pay attention to what you see, hear, feel and know. Doing so will become easier with practice.

Many times, we are all too hard on ourselves. We are strong enough to endure this human life experience, and we need to be reminded of this periodically. It is essential that we have as much compassion for ourselves as we so often extend to others. In other words, we need to be easier on ourselves and much kinder.

According to Science, everything is made up of energy; it is the building block of all matter. Everything in this Universe is made up of the same stuff. It´s just present in different forms and shapes. Our physical bodies are also made up of energy. This includes our thoughts, words, actions and emotions. This energetic emission, which includes our self-talk and the other thoughts running through our mind, is similar to a radio transmission.

Therefore, it is necessary to become aware of these energetic emissions as we are essentially walking vibrations. Like a radio station, the frequency we vibrate at is what we broadcast out to the world around us. Our emotions affect our physical bodies. If we are vibrating with fear, stress or lack of trust, the energy is being focused in a lower vibrational way and resisting flow.

Lower or heavier vibrations are vibrations that stem from reaction to an outside source. They are the frequencies of fear, which include worry, doubt, lack, depression, anger, hatred, apathy, jealousy and despair as well as many other emotions. Higher vibrations are powerful and tend to feel good. High vibrations are easy to identify, since they are heart-centered, light, bright, playful, loving, grateful, peaceful and giving as well as many others.

Consciously or subconsciously, we make a choice to live in lower or higher vibrations. Lower vibrations create more reactionary choices: retaliation, judgment and self-abuse. Higher vibrations move us into the choice of creation instead of reaction: understanding, acceptance and self-love.

Self-love is the foundation on which we build a happy life. Without self-love, we have nowhere to put the love or abundance that comes to us.

Take a moment to consider these questions: How do you view yourself? What does your self-talk sound like? Is it negative/critical or positive/life-affirming?

Acknowledge and then banish the negative self-talk, which is often detrimental to your psyche, well-being and over all physical health. Then, choose to re-direct the energy emission to one of self-love, compassion and kindness.

Be kind to yourself as well as to those around you. Everyone is experiencing life in their own way and has their own reality.
