People often ask, “How do I know if I’m headed in the right direction or not?”
We are provided with a wonderfully accurate mirror, which always tells us how we’ve been doing.
That mirror is called reality. It will faithfully reflect back to us our own predominant vibration.
There is a lag of course, so it may not show you what you’re feeling now, but it’ll always show you what you have been feeling.
I will admit, these last few months have been extremely challenging for me. I quit my job just before the market downturn from the coronavirus, so this whole thing has triggered a whole range of negative emotions and limiting beliefs from me. Some days I felt like I was drowning in my own anxiety.
It doesn’t help that I’m an empath, and I swear I’ve been able to feel the pervasive negative emotion in the collective unconscious. Not sure if other empaths have been experiencing the same, but the whole world for a while just felt so depressed, and it was rather overwhelming.
I managed to stay afloat, but my financial situation reflected my own fears rather accurately. During the worst of the fear, I watched in virtual panic as trade after trade went wrong. I saw as other investors lost tens of thousands of dollars overnight (thankfully not my own fate). Whereas the market before was a calm ocean, it had now become a massive typhoon capable of sinking any ship. Market conditions were incredibly dangerous for several weeks.
Over the last couple of weeks, things have gotten far better, for me at least (there are still other investors having a lot of issues). I’ve done my best to control my own abundance vibration, and the mirror called reality has begun to reflect that back.
The thing is, during a time like this, it’s easy to use that mirror not as a way of checking where you are vibrationally, but as a way to make yourself feel more of the same.
That is, if the mirror is showing fear and anxiety, you let yourself feel even more fear and anxiety. Reality then becomes not a mirror, but a feedback loop that you struggle to escape.
That’s not its purpose at all, but it’s all too easy to get caught up in that trap.
The question is, how do you escape this feedback loop?
The answer, as it always has been for me, is surrender and non-resistance. We resist what reality reflects back to us, and so we just invite more of the same.
But surrender is sort of one of those words that’s easy to say but incredibly difficult to implement.
Recently I felt inspired to offer a class I’m calling (tentatively) “The Art of Surrender”. So many people have baggage around that word “surrender” because they think it’s passive. But nothing could be further from the truth. Surrender, when properly applied, is far from passive, but is in fact the perfect tool for you to take control of your reality.
I’m not opening up registration yet, but just wanted to mention it to see if you might be interested.
In the meantime, do your best to avoid the feedback loop of reality. Realize that no matter how bad things might seem at times, you can change it easily with how you choose to feel moment-by-moment. And indeed, this is the only control you have.
