Organically Allowing Life to Flow
Then, Consciously Responding as Needed
I can no longer live life as before, a life of strategic planning and hard work. Those days are done! I feel tired as soon as I head in that direction. I feel dispirited when I use my energy in that way. And what is really telling, is that it doesn’t work for me.
Have you felt this change coming on? Has it been knocking at your door as well?
My body tells me it is time to release old ways of living in this world, even though I don’t know exactly how to live in a new way. But, what I do know from messages from my body is that this new way has a totally different foundation.
Red, Orange and Yellow Chakras in the lower part of the body have everything to do with how to be a soul in form. In other words, you can’t just live outside of the body. You inhabit the body.
When you feel discomfort in the First Chakra, which is Red, it likely has something to do with your personal foundation. Are you grounded? Do you appreciate the support of nature and the natural world? Do you stand firmly in your truth? Do you walk through life supported by what you know?
At one time I could have said yes to all of that. But now, my body is telling me to let go of my old concepts of being grounded, appreciating nature, standing in my truth, and walking firmly supported by what I know.
I am being shown that my new foundation consists of Organically Allowing & Consciously Responding.
“But, I feel comfortable with a plan. I need my task list to stay on track. I’ll walk in nature later. I know my truth so I must be living it. I’m comfortable with what I know.”
What would my life look like if I opened up to what is already waiting for me—waiting for me to allow it to enter. It’s as if there is a voice that says, “Well, OK if you’re not ready or not willing to let go of the old stuff, that’s all right. I’m here when you’re ready.”
Then, I notice what happens when I take over in the old way. It’s hard. Nothing seems to flow. Things take longer and are more arduous. I sense and know this is the old way.
Then, I tell myself I’m going to allow things to organically come to me. That lasts for a few minutes or maybe a few days. But, it isn’t happening fast enough. I step in. Soon, I’m operating in my old way.
It’s not that I’m unwilling to allow my life-flow. It’s just that, in that mode, I won’t know when or how something will happen. It feels like waiting around (which causes me to pace).
There must be something about this new way that I don’t understand. I suspect that I feel like I’m on the sidelines (Not where I tend to be).
What do I do while I allow what is next?== Breathe! Notice beauty! Read what others say! Listen to music! Write!
I get antsy thinking I need to be doing something to move things along.
And so the pattern continues!
Since I know deep down that organically allowing is more who I am, how can I move into this new way of being that will actually stick?
It occurs to me that intention has always greased the wheels. Things go more smoothly when I start with a clear intention for what I want to manifest.
My Intention: “I intend to find my way into organically allowing in a way that works for me. I release my old patterns in order to make room for a new way of being.”
That feels good. I resonate with its energy, words, and process.
I have set my manifesting intention.
I am releasing old patterns as I become aware of them.
So how does this work?
As I sit with my manifesting intention, I realize that when I allow it, the energy opens up; it expands. This is not a time to react on autopilot. That would tend to be old patterns.
Instead, this is a time to consciously respond.
This is a time to use my deep sensing that comes through my inner knowing, along with my human understanding which has developed through my experiences. That’s the combination that allows me to be consciously responding.
Sometimes I can consciously respond immediately. I can feel how to navigate what has come up.
Other times, I need time to rest, meditate, connect with inner guidance, and then decide how to respond.
I am sometimes surprised by what I am guided to do after taking the time to respond consciously. I may find that it’s important to leave things alone if there has been a break in a relationship. That is not my automatic response. In the past, I would contact the person right away to repair the situation. When I follow my inner guidance, I find that the situation organically works out.
I have been operating this way for a while. But, until now, I have not put organically allowing and consciously responding together.
A New Way of Being
Allowing and Responding in this way is new for me.
I will need to be organically allowing for while before I am comfortable consciously allowing. With every new way of being, we need practice before it becomes automatic.
When I feel I have gone into an old pattern of managing what happens, I will stop and spend time understanding what triggered that. I will look at how I could organically allow myself to be present and aware rather than taking charge and forcing what happens next.
Are you feeling this new way of being coming into your life, or are you already living that way? What challenges do you face as you step into your new way of being?
Change is upon us. We can navigate it in a new way or keep going down an old path wondering why it’s not working.
I’m choosing organic, mindful change!
What do you choose?
