Spiritual Year-End Regrouping for

2011-2012

Believing to Create!

September 1 marks the beginning of the New Spiritual Year!  This month we have a great opportunity to regroup this past Spiritual Year before moving into a new wave of energy – The Successes of NOW!

Why do we regroup for the new year?  One reason is to Set the Energy for the year and not rely or relive the past.  It is like giving permission to the miracles to manifest in your life.  It is like Allocating the energy for your coming year ( placing your order with Guidance and the All).

Another way to say this, “…. it is in our best interest to learn & grow from the past.  But it is also in our best interest to leave the past in the past.”  Tiger Coll

 

As souls, we are in a process of Spiraling Up; expanding and growing.   In order to spiral up we need to release heavy concepts that are holding us back and accept new ones that will help us move up …. the lighter ones.

Consider this, this whole previous year has unfolded so that you may continue to move to a new plateau.  It starts with a little regrouping.

We are “believing to create” our “successes of now!”

Here is a suggestion to get you started:

#1.  Set an appointment with yourself and your Guidance.  A time that is truly yours.  This could be 30, 45 or 60 minutes (avoid going past 60 minutes; you can always schedule in another regrouping).

#2.  In a detached way, regroup the goals you set at this time last year.  Recall your goals and ask yourself:

A.  What did I learn this last year? 

B.  How would I improve last year? 

C.  What were my highlights for the year?

#3.  Refresh your Goals and Thrust:  Ask yourself – Are these goals still in harmony with what I want and need now?  How can I better fulfill my Thrust; my life purpose?

#4.  Coordinate your “Year-End” Regrouping” with your updated goals – Is there anything you would like to add based on what you learned or would improve from this last year?  Working with Inner Guidance ask – Are there any areas that are in my best interest to unfold this year?  Edit and refine your list based on your decisions.

#5.  Consolidate your new goals, regroup with your Spiritual Helpers and Magnetize Your Year for the accomplishment and fulfillment.  Tune into the things you want to accomplish this coming year.  Visualize them being accomplished and what it feels like to accomplish them.  Give your Spiritual Helpers and the Universe permission to back and support you in accomplishing them.  Relax and release them to manifest.

Extra Hint:  Put your refreshed goals in a place you can see and energize them them daily during this month.  During these times there may-well-be insights to help you better fulfill them.  This is part of working with your sensitivity and guidance in its higher forms.

Remember, “… a waterfall begins with one drop of water.”  It’s largely about consistency and follow-through.

Get ready for 2012 / 2013:  THE SUCCESSES OF NOW!

The Spiritual Theme of the Month –  August 2012 

SEE 

Am I looking or am I seeing?  Am I perceiving with my feelings first or my intellect first? Discernment begins by clarifying what “is” – not fantasy or the “maze.”  There are many things that are for show but what is behind it?  There may be many headlines but what do they mean?

Facts are the way of life, they are a way of nature and the universe.  They just are. Having them clear creates a steady flow of water down a river.  Without clarity I am tossed and turned in the waters, struggling through rapids, waterfalls and the challenges of running aground. Discovering the truth in things and people is not about being right, it’s about being clear – “What is me and what is not?”

It is having the inner vision to first see the soul, then the concepts and then the physical body.  My energy is presence in the present, direct through direction, and full of fulfillment.  Everything is already here to fulfill my needs.  If I am not focused on seeing, then I am focused on looking.  See!

Spiritual Theme of the Month for December, 2011.

IMPEL

By Francisco David Coll

Freeing myself is true liberation.  No one can do this for me.   Anytime I feel captive, restricted or dependent, I need to return to the basics:  I am a soul with a physical body, not a physical body with a soul;  I am intelligent light; I am energy.  I came here to learn and grow. I learn and grow through involvement and experience.

I have a unique purpose and Thrust. It is unique because I am the sum total of all my thoughts and feelings throughout eternity.  I have a master team of Spiritual Helpers here to guide me in my spiritual growth.  They are here to work with me, not to work for me. I am free.  I am free to experience great challenges, blocks and stepping-stones that seem overwhelming, just as I am free to succeed. That is freedom.  Once this truly becomes a part of my understanding, I will become more conscious of the real me.  I will live the Soul Consciousness.  I will live life.

What I have inside is Perfect. There is no place for doubt. I do not need to get wrapped up or caught up in perfection.  This will only dilute my inner motivation and incentive. Just as the Universe and Nature are perfect, so am I.  “Perfection” is in the bliss, the challenges, and the ups and downs of my life.  It is in the process and flow of life; the journey.  I do not need to concern myself with perfection. I am already perfect.

My opportunity is simply to do the best I know how and learn and grow from it. That is why my desires-my true desires-are so important. My inner desires and needs are my intelligent design.  The moment I feel them, I am in the process of creating them. Inside me exists the power and potential of lifetimes, and the energy and wisdom of the Universe.  I even have a whole team of Spiritual Helpers I can check and recheck with.  All I need to do is focus on what I need and want and get involved.

There is an inner desire that I have … an inner drive. It truly comes from inside and not outside.  This inner desire is in harmony and in tune with the Universe.  It helps me with my niche.  It is associated with the power of Will.  It is not an outer push but rather a natural flow, like water traveling downhill.  If I get caught up or controlled by outer things my inner desire can seem like a whisper or gentle breeze that is easily ignored and replaced.  This is because I have trained myself to jump when there are outer demands.  I let the emotions and my thoughts bully my true feelings.  It means I have put too much focus and priority on outer motivation and things.

As a soul I need Drive in my life, but when I allow my energy to get out of balance I confuse drive with “forcing” or “pressure.”  I may even wait to be told what to do.  By doing this, I lower my inner standards and create excuses. This is a lazy path, and I take it when I am afraid or doubt the solutions, energy and leadership I have inside.

There is no “free lunch.”  That is a Spiritual truth.  This does not however mean that my needs and wants are difficult to achieve.  It simply means that I must be willing to put forth energy so that I may receive energy.  This is natural when I’m being me and enjoying life.  It is innate.  As a matter of fact, I claim the challenge. I want opportunity. The Real Me is decisive, bold and spirited; taking action and being fully committed, like a deep flowing river.  It is enjoying and balancing my two worlds.  As long as I am crystal clear in what I can take with me, I can enjoy and be involved in anything I feel I need or want.  When I consistently do this I understand what it means to move by desire; I freely accomplish the fulfillment of my goals.

I lead with my heart. It shows the way. I organize with my head, so I don’t go astray. I follow-through with action.  That is the accomplishment and fulfillment that feels like play.  This is the simplicity and power of what I am – Feel, Think, Act.

Fulfilling my true inner urge is effortless.  I do not have to force things.  My energy has force, but I am not about forcing myself, people or things.  I have drive, but it is not about being a slave driver.  I have true concern, but it does not mean that I pity or cater to myself, people or things.  I am gentle, but it does not mean that I waste time.  Every moment I am drawn toward what I need to be doing.  It is not harsh or difficult.  That is part of what distinguishes it from an outer urge.  It comes from my core.

The heart wants what the heart wants.  I remind myself that “I have no limitations” and that “everything is going to be alright.”  I move forward and I work from this pivot. There is nothing that can or will stop me.  I am free to experience and feel. Setting my own goals based on what I truly feel I need is first. Giving myself plenty of time to accomplish is second.  Discerning the places I need to be is third. Knowing the reason and feeling the success as I progress is fourth. The rest is just follow-through.

 That is IMPEL – The Way of the Wayshower.

RELEASE THE NEW YOU

Comments Off on RELEASE THE NEW YOU

RELEASE THE NEW YOU!


For some, “Release” is another one of those words that conjures up a negative response internally… an emotion of ‘missing it’, ‘letting go’, ‘not having’, ‘it’s not fair’, a form of fear… of someone or something that is natural or added to the state of life one is used to, will not be there any more.


Definitely, ‘release’ requires courage to change, sometimes it is a forced change, to allow the universe to re-fill what we assume is the space that is now there because we’ve emptied or cleared it.


To understand how your template for ‘release’ affects you,

Close your eyes…

Look back to the freeing of a hurt animal or bird you had in your care…

Look back to the first day your child went to school…

Remember how you felt when you sold your first home…

Remember back to when you buried a close family member…

Recall how you felt when you separated from your first true love…

Recall how you felt when you had some treasure stolen from you…


If you have not experienced any of these life milestones, imagine one or recall how your parents worked their way through loss and grief in their lives… this is your template – it can however be re-programmed.

Jot down those emotions, thoughts and excuses that have been stimulated. We will work with them below. Now take a deep breath in through the nose and out the mouth and one more… and one more.

There are many idioms that describe that emptiness or loss and or desire of not having a particular need, want or person in your life. Support programs take people through grief counselling; the Medical association issues medication; Friends and Family re-act differently, often tip-toeing around you or more often staying away, but surprisingly there are a few that just hug you and let you be in your grief… there is help around you to help you through and over this ‘release’ or ‘loss’.


The new age movement has at it’s disposal all sorts of techniques to manifest your future self into being. There is not  however, a primary understanding that to receive or change, one needs to give… and many grapple at why those techniques of manifestation do not work for them. The hankering after a desire is not the key… the daily affirmation is not the key… the visualization boards is not the key… These are only steps in the procedure of acquiring a goal, changing a state of being, creating a new you. It is not the beginning step.

Release is the key.

Now to understand the positive side of ‘Release’ in your template,

Close your eyes….

Recall what if feels like to experience or witness the birth of new life…

Recall what if feels like after you have cleaned out all your cupboards…

Look back to what it feels like to move into a brand new home or drive a brand new car…

Look back to what it feels like to be at your own or your child’s graduation…

Remember what it feels like to be addiction free… (drugs, alcohol, gambling, smoking, credit cards, food, sugar, sex, things, people etc.)

Remember what it feels like to swim naked…


All of the above events are the ‘joy’ of being unencumbered with ‘hanging onto the past’ you, your concepts or others. They are a result of letting go and releasing so you can accept or be. The struggle that is sometimes associated with acquiring these milestones are also the depth of your template surrounding the word ‘Release’.


Jot down those emotions, thoughts and excuses that were stimulated with the positive side of ‘release’. We will work with them below. Now take a deep breath in through the nose and out the mouth and one more… and one more.

The ‘struggle’ symptoms that are often associated with acquiring new goals and events are also part of your old template, part of your old conditioning that you have underlying your ability to receive all.


What would it be like for you to be able to receive without all of the baggage and past conditioning which makes up the struggle or even total denial of receiving your desires? The emotions, thoughts and excuses are the beginning…. they are what is stopping you. This is what you need to ‘release’. By giving up these, you make room for miracles to happen. This is true giving to receive… You are giving yourself space. You are creating a new you. You are re-programming what you want, not what your past template, that does not work, wants.


Homework time:

Take that list of emotions, thoughts and excuses.

Read them all out aloud.

Feel what that is.

Now read out the first statement.

Ask yourself…

What is the worst thing that could happen if I didn’t think this way?

Is there another way of thinking about this?

What would I gain if I didn’t think this way?

Whom is actually gaining out of this way of thinking?

Could I give myself permission to change this way of thinking?

What would I like to think about this instead?

Write down your new way of thinking…..


Do all the emotions, thoughts and excuses… one at a time so you create a list of your new way of thinking. This new way of thinking is now your daily affirmations. Read it daily.

To change a habit, it takes 15days.

To change a lifetime it takes 30days.


There will be obvious signs in your environment that change is happening.

Your desires will manifest as the Universe Always Says YES!

RELEASE THE NEW YOU!

Theme of the Month – November, 2011

RELEASE

by Francisco D. Coll

How far can I go?  How much success am I willing to claim?  Do I really accept people for who and what they are?  Do I accept myself 100%?  My ability to learn and grow is directly connected to my willingness to let go of habits and concepts that no longer work for me.  All I need is to truly do the best that I know how and patiently fulfill my goals.

Butterfly release

Recognizing success is a large part of unfolding soul consciousness.  The fact that I am here is a great success.  There are many who have not organized themselves to be where I am and experience what I have.  Just breathing and keeping my physical body together means that I am successful.  This does not mean that I am better. I will never be better, just as I will never be lesser.  There are no greater or lesser souls-only different states of consciousness.  It simply means that I have organized myself.  I have everything I need to be successful.  I am as successful as I want to be and I can be very proud of who I am and what I have accomplished through all of my experiences.

Once I accept that I am energy, I can start relaxing inside. When I embrace my opportunity here to learn and grow, I will be free. What robs me of that abundant freedom is competition.  A little positive competition gives me the incentive to achieve what I want.  This comes from inside.  Too much competition will take away from what I want, before I even achieve it.  This comes from outside.  When the outer world becomes more important than the Real Me, I am caught in competition.  I am controlled and easily used.  The solution is acceptance: accepting who I am and what I have is powerful.  The solution is minding my own business. I am in the business of me, and I best fulfill that when I am being of super service.

When I work with my full potential, I accept my inner power and accept “the god within.”  This is living life.  The real challenge comes when I stop moving at my inner pace and stop claiming my own Clear Direction.  I may have been told that having my own direction is dangerous.  I may have been told that I will fail or “lose.”  I may have been fed many things that can create fear or resistance.  If I accept the fears of others I could become posessive of my opportunities or blow my timing for new opportunities.  I will resist the flow of my own energy and that of the universe.  It is my opportunity to forge new experiences and cover new ground for myself.  That is an important part of why I am here.  How will I mature as a soul if I am not fully involved in my purpose?  How will my accomplishments and people mature if I am not fully involved in my purpose?  I won’t, and they won’t, until I take action, learn from the experience and then Follow-Through.

Everything starts with a True Feeling.  This is very different than an emotion.  By allowing myself to organize what I feel for success, I accomplish the fulfillment.  It is simply giving myself permission.  I give myself permission to be Happy.  I give myself permission to be Successful.  I give myself permission to be Abundant.  It all happens by making that decision.  It happens when I allow it to happen.  Every time I breathe in, I am accepting abundance.  Every time I breathe out I am sharing abundance.  Breathe in, breathe out.  In, out.  Accept and release.  Fulfill and accomplish.  Breathe in, breathe out.

I am free.  There is no need to explain or complicate that statement.  I am free.  I am so free that sometimes I can involve myself with blocks.  That is ok.  They can give me stability while I am maturing.  But I am ready to move beyond.  I am willing to let go.  My desire for deeper and greater success is stronger than worry, fear or guilt.  To fully claim my true needs and wants, I will Release the blocks.  I let go of concepts that no longer work for me.  Release does not mean I lose things or people.  It means I give freedom to myself and everything I am involved in.  Release is letting go of excuses and embracing the Real Me.

Theme of The Month, July, 2011

MEAN

“No one means all he says, and yet very few say all they mean, for words are slippery and thought is viscous.” ~ Henry Adams.

July brings us the energy of “Mean” to pivot from.

The ability to be ‘mean’ as in a lean, mean athlete generally means they are at their peak performance, ready to take on the challenges set for them. Whereas if one is a ‘mean’ person in the everyday sense it qualifies stinginess or an inability to share their inner or outer wealth. And interestingly enough the middle or average is also qualified as the ‘mean’.

There are many meanings to the word ‘mean’, if you know what I mean?

“God may be subtle, but he isn’t plain mean.” ~ Albert Einstein

On a big picture point of view, I, as a soul have meaning. There is no-one like me; I am and my message is Unique. I chose my plan and my ambition is to accomplish it before I go home. I ‘mean’ to follow through.

I prefer to be the green, mean, lean spiritual machine, but at times I fall into the I’m average or the ‘norm’. At these times for me to rise above the ‘mean’ I’ve fallen into I need to be a bit ‘mean’ to myself, in that I need to recheck and take actions to re-mind myself about my big picture and purpose and get back on track.

“The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak.”

I however do not need to be ‘mean’ to myself about my short-comings. The act of regrouping from my pivot of my big picture is to acknowledge what has occurred, learn from that, put in place any refinements or new goals and move on. To be ‘mean’ to myself for not winning or accomplishing something from a human point of view locks the past into a concrete immovable manifestation which is not me… I am here practising my greatest self, not here to remind myself that I lack or am bad at something.

“By trying we can easily endure adversity. Another man’s, I mean.” ~ Mark Twain

If, as a baby, I judged myself and my activities or failures, I would never have learned to walk or talk. Watching children learning a new challenge is a joy to behold and I am absolutely sure all the angels have that same sense of joy when they see us as adults accomplish a new challenge. Have you watched a child learning to walk? Do you remember how many times they would get up, wobble, take a step and land sideways or fall over? They were persistent until they could do it – this is innate within all of us in our own timing.

Within all of us we have that ability to let go of the past and move on towards our present and future. There is no reason to carry the baggage of the past, it just makes our joy of self turn into concrete. And that doesn’t make us light!

Forgiveness is a very powerful tool… it’s intention is to dissolve the past judgements we have about ourselves and others. Mainly it helps the bearer of the weight let go and resolve so they can live without burden. Guilt is one way we are ‘mean’ to ourselves. Worry is another. Both of these emotions are enslavements, none have any value except to control our greater selves. They are emotions that are attached to areas of judgements within us… they are alarms that forgiveness can dissolve.

I do the very best I know how – the very best I can; and I mean to keep on doing so until the end.” ~ Abraham Lincoln

RETURN

Theme Of The Month, May, 2011

RETURN

 

 

During the month of May, 2011 the key energetic theme that spirit is backing to clarify and bring into the Planet is RETURN.

It is part of our innate desire as a soul to ‘return’, to go back to, to re-experience, to re-member, to pay back, to gain extra insights from experiences by either returning to or revisiting the environment either physically, spiritually or mentally, to regroup and learn from situations so we have more in-depth understanding, which adds to our spiritual real estate.

This extra insight usually gives us a greater ‘return’ on our initial investment. To pick up from where we left off as such but in a deeper level. This is one of the reasons why when we incarnate we often choose to ‘return’ to our familiar.

This continuity of the soul ‘returning’ or reincarnating back into our past families is played out both positively and negatively… the law of karma is played out. What we invested in the people in previous life/s we can re-inherit as such, and also what we did not invest when it was necessary can become issues to overcome or heal.

Such magnetism is ‘normal’. This is part of the universal law…

“What we put out, returns to us 10 fold.”

To ‘return’ to situations with a greater understanding will remove or replace the old karmic attractions. Similar to a computer when you put in an upgrade of the previous program. The relationship may still be primarily the same but it will operate on a clearer and cleaner foundation.

For the Month of May the primary theme will take you into re-establishing contracts with people and situations, whether they be legal, family, friends or social interactions with people. This is so we ‘return’ to our inner loyalties and responsibility within this life. It is as such a re-boot, a re-alignment of ourselves.

Eliminating what does not work for us and re-igniting our passions for what we are really here for. A letting go of the past, a shelving of what we cannot change, an accepting that the contracts are over as they have run their course in our lives.

Some of the ways ‘return’ will occur in the month of May are in the Dictionary meanings of it below.

Cheers
