The last few months have been beautiful AND challenging in so many ways for me – financially, emotionally, etc.. The challenging part has been in all good ways b/c the situations in my life forced me to face FEARS I am still “swallowing” and learn to trust at a greater level. The truth is, we all live the meaning behind the song, “Swallow Your Fears,” so I’ll share what I do to swallow mine.
Whenever you find yourself fearful or just feeling unsure of how things are going to work in your life, try looking at your situation differently by telling yourself “I am exactly where I need to be in this period of FAITH building. It is ALL good!” Sounds simple, but if you are familiar with this sort of practice, then you know how effective it can be.
Sometimes we see our fears, weaknesses or lack of faith as if something is “wrong” with us, but I was reminded today that if we were perfect in the ways we often think of perfection, how could we ever experience growth and victory; the thrill of expanding our faith, consciousness, alignment, awereness and presence;
the beauty of learning and gaining insight – experiencing”aha” moments; how could we enjoy discovering truth and the excitement of co-creating and overcoming if we were already perfect in the ways we sometimes view perfection?
And yet, we are perfect in the way the greatest mind of all – the Source of all life – has determined perfection to be: we are an incomplete, everexpanding, PERFECT state of being experiencing our human existance!
We are perfect in every way we need to be, exactly where we need to be to experience what will lead us to alignment with God/Source!
It is up to us to seek alignment with Source to FULLY experience what our ever expanding perfection offers! Call it “drawing nigh to God,” “seeking first the kingdom of God,” or whatever you like, but finding the practices that put you in touch with the one Source is key to experiencing the “abundant” life available to us.
Just remember that it is not so much about what/which practices you use – to align with God/Source, to “Swallow Your Fears” – as it is important for you to SEEK and FIND practices that work for you!
