“I am beginning to realize that this portrait was painted with you in mind, not me.” – Yolanda
Welcome to Meditation Monday! This week's meditation is about noticing the shifts in your consciousness.
In recent conversations, I have noticed many people are questioning their beliefs, life direction, and purpose. It seems to be more than the general questioning of life itself; it is a personal introspection of the individual.
At first, I thought it was just me looking for more; knowing and feeling there was more to life than the way I was living it. I knew, without a doubt, that I was being led in a new direction – one that aligned with my soul’s purpose. As soon as I had this realization, answers began to surface, which led me towards more questions. And as it went, the more answers I acknowledged, the more information I was given. My path and consciousness began to expand. My perspective, on many things, began to shift.
Many of us have been taught hand-me-down “truths”, without much question. We have even been persuaded to follow paths that do not necessarily fulfill us, but we have been told that it is what we are supposed to do. Even if these things did not make sense to us, we often times found ourselves following the direction and beliefs of others. Now, it seems, many are stepping away from the mirrors being held for them, and are taking the responsibility of holding their own.
As I have mentioned in previous blogs (and those yet to come), we are energetic beings. What this means, in reference to this topic, is that as we shift our consciousness and raise our energetic vibrations, we are shifting the consciousness and raising the vibrations of those we come into contact with. We also begin to shift what is drawn to us. Have you ever heard the saying about birds of a feather? As we grow, we will undoubtedly outgrow people, beliefs…even certain paths will become too narrow for our new direction. When we choose to explore our questions, our feathers and flock may change, guiding us inward to reveal our answers. This is all part of the process when our consciousness shifts and expands. We begin to shift and expand. We connect with ourselves and transform.
This week, take note of what you’re questioning in your own life. What beliefs or patterns are no longer serving you? Are you noticing a shift in your own consciousness?
A big piece of this conversation is perspective, which I will discuss in this week’s Wisdom Wednesday.
Until next time…
Peace and Blessings!
