Looking Back to See Ahead
Have you ever tried looking back over your shoulder, just for a quick glance, then bump into something right in front of you? Recently, while walking my dog I noticed that he looked back at another dog across the street. He kept walking forward, but was so obsessed with focusing on what was happening behind him on the other side of the street, that he smacked head on into a telephone pole. He wasn’t hurt as I averted him pretty quickly, but he did rattle himself.
When I saw this I began to think about our human lives. Why is it that we persist in looking backwards at what already happened? We have all had painful experiences, loads of suffering along the way, yet we often cling to this broken perspective of self that we fail to realize our wholeness and capacity to look ahead.
If you are a person who is awake, then you know it takes a lot of love drawing from universal light to keep yourself in a high vibrational frequency of light energy. When we practice this form of vibrational light daily, we begin to lose the heaviness that we carried around from the past and when you truly shift even higher, it almost feels awkward to think about going back to an earlier perception of yourself. Yet, these past several weeks this is what I have done, spiraled backwards, forgot to leave the road opened ahead and banged my head into a the proverbial telephone pole because I was so consumed with what got me into this present state to begin with.
The wisdom gained at my own folly is quite profound. I have practiced visualizing that who I am is already here in my heart and that all I have to do is live this new reality of that person I affirm I already am. In other words, once we see ourselves in a new positive vibration and we are affirm that it is so, we have to step into that vibration, kind of like a jumping rope that is already going round and round, you just jump in and you are that.
Following our highest passion will carry us, as we are manifesting our thought energy at rapid speed in 2014, and it will keep getting faster as we move along toward the 4th and 5th dimensions. However, as in my case, when we fall backward, we fall harder each time. This is important to keep in mind as you move along your ascended path. It is beautiful and the wow factor at getting it and even laughing a lot more than perhaps you used to is AWEsome, but when we get lost, and we will, the bruising is more painful.
It is an essential lesson learned in that we must treat ourselves and others as the person they already see themselves as, not as the broken person from before. We can’t tell someone they are beautiful, then offer them a skin acne remedy. Get it? The take away factor crashes the vibration into the trash can. When we see each other as completely whole, completely healed, completely capable, then offering a remedy is telling someone they need help, or fixing, or suggests doubt.
When you are vulnerable, as you may feel from time to time, especially if you are learning and practicing an ascended path without any support. You will be tested, as you create the tests yourself, to stay on the path that you have created for yourself. This could be going back to school, learning a new craft, moving, marrying, divorcing, taking a new job, a thousand things, but when you step into the higher vibration of who you now are, you may sabotage all your loving practices by looking back.
I looked back. I didn’t recognize the person from before, because as we create a new life for ourselves, rebirthing again and again, looking back becomes fuzzy, cloudy and the history literally disappears. At some point, you will have no need to want to read your history file because it will be erased. It erases itself as you step into and reclaim the unconditional love you have for yourself.
I looked back.
Now, today, I look forward to the dream I envisioned many years ago, having a little coffee roasting shop, being thrilled to visit with everyone who walks into the shop to hear about their day and their dreams, to work lovingly with a soul group of artists who want to share their crafts, music and soul work at this lovely little shop. Believing in my calling as a person who helps others find their way to live with joy, a loving heart and a seeker spirit, these are my gifts to this world.
Allowing the dream to unfold, getting out the way, letting helpers help, believing.
Don’t get involved with what you are leaving behind. Your past may be loaded with pain, suffering, and difficulty, but you are trying to build a new life. Leave the past where it was, and turn your attention fully toward where you are going.
