“You Can’t Always Get What You Want………”

“You Can’t Always Get What You Want……..

But if you try sometimes you just might find, you get what you need.”  The Rolling Stones had it right all these many years ago.  With all the chatter about The Law of Attraction………some  people are feeling frustrated…..especially in this economy.  They are setting intentions for what they want and are expecting to see the results of manifestation.  Some people feel impatient, some feel like they didn’t do it right.  Some people are just plain confused about the process and others tend to give up.

‘The Secret’ encourages us to put up pictures of the car or house that we want.  We keep looking at the pictures envisioning ourselves driving that beautiful car or in the counting house counting all our money.  But like attracts like.  If our belief systems support old ideas that we really can’t do it or we really aren’t good enough to receive it then we have a problem.  Our conflicted energy in the present moment will not support the dynamic of manifestation.

Or just, maybe, our soul energy capacity of self-awareness is not interested in the experience of having a new car right now.  We decide that we want what we want and it doesn’t appear.  What is up with that?  When we trust in our Inner Essence or our Higher Consciousness or whatever we call it………..we trust that what we need in order to grow is what we get.

Have you ever thought that you really really wanted a certain job?  You thought it was perfect for you and you dreamed about it and knew you would be happy there.  You rocked the interview and just waited for your phone to ring with the good news.  But your phone didn’t ring….. someone else got the call.  It wasn’t you.  And you grieved and maybe whined just a little bit to your friends.  Or maybe it was a relationship that didn’t manifest, or a move that didn’t work out, or a house deal that fell through.

Trusting the Self

In a continuation of my article “Look in the Mirror: your teacher awaits you” I was moved to respond to a particular comment. The thought expressed concerned a common behavior response to the content in our lives: we continue to look outside of ourselves for direction because we don’t know how to trust ourselves.

What does it really mean to “trust ourselves?” What does it mean to “trust the Universe?” Are we aware of the different levels of consciousness within us that we move among during any amount of time? Do we recognize when we are “in the flow” and feeling peaceful? Do we also recognize when we are operating from an energy level of fear which causes us to block the flow of higher energy? As we move through our process of self-realization sometimes we are operating from the lower energies and sometimes we flow in the higher energies. More

Row, Row, Row Your Boat

 

Remember the song we sang as kids……..row, row, row your boat gently down the stream, merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily……life is but a dream.  And so it is except that we are hitting rough waters of late.   How do we keep rowing gently and merrily and be with the growing uncertainty and rapid changes in our lives both individually and as a community?
