How to Use the Awareness of the Image that You Project to Enhance Your Experiences (Part I)
The clues of how to change your undesirable patterns are within your interactions with others.
There is a myriad of ways to explore your self, your relationships and your experiences. Whether it’s projection, mirroring, or alignment/ congruency, essentially, they all end up meaning the same thing. However, different ways of viewing the self will resonate differently from one person to the next.
Are you aware of what image you hold of your self? Your core essence always sees you as nothing but absolutely lovable. When you are open to seeing your self that way then you feel good due to you being attuned to your self, Self and All. You are in a space of allowance and receptivity which translates into enjoyable and desirable experiences. The image you project and see mirrored back is one of which is to your liking. You find that you feel loved and are loving.
However, when you are trying to make some ‘not enough’ version of your self true, then you will experience unpleasantness in regard to how you feel about your self, the types of experiences you have, and how others see you (or essentially what they are mirroring back to you).
It really does become a distorted house of mirrors once you begin to understand that how you see another person has its roots in how you perceive your self. In addition, how they see you is a reflection of how they are holding themselves. It could be things such as judgment, acceptance, allowance, blame or acknowledgement. Whatever it may be, it’s not always a straight across clear reflection. For example, if you are judging someone for being selfish, it is highly likely that the resentment you are feeling toward them is due to your not taking time for your self or acknowledging your self in some way or area of your life.
It is one of the possible ways to begin to shift into more desirable patterns by creating awareness around, and discerning, what your experiences mean. An element of this process may include identifying for what you are judging or blaming someone else. Put a ‘label’ on it, for example, abusive, thoughtless, coldhearted, and then explore how that might relate to some way that you are interacting with your self. If you identify someone as abusive, then you are feeling as if you are a victim. This doesn’t necessarily mean that you are being abusive to someone else, however, it may suggest that you are punishing your self, in some way, for some “not enoughness,’ of which you may or may not be consciously aware. It will usually be associated with some old belief that is now creating limitations and feelings of powerlessness/ victim. It is not to suggest that the person isn’t being abusive, as they probably are, however, the bigger question is why are you having that particular interaction with that person at that time?
Once you get a handle on working with your experiences in this way, then it may be part of one of the methods to assist you in beginning to realize how you can influence your life in ways that you truly desire.
An Expression of Your Self Which Has Never Been Lived Before
You have been calibrating and there have been a number of subtle attunements occurring on many levels. Your cells have been acclimatizing to new energies that you are in touch with and bringing into being. The changing frequencies on the planet and the changing frequencies within your beings are allowing for more so of an ability to bring into form energies that have not been on the planet previously. It means an expression of self that has never been seen or experienced in your forms before. It seems as if it would be an absolutely easy and natural thing for most humans to be them selves, however, it has become a convoluted struggle filled process for most. It is not unreasonable to need assistance with the process and application of the expanded expression of who you are.
It is encouraged to engage in a daily practice of awareness and increasing receptivity. It is recognized how easy it is, with a human physiology, to fall back into patterns and habits of old beliefs, even when the belief has been released. It is somewhat akin to injuring, or losing a limb. Initially, there is still the inclination to do things in the manner in which they've always been done, even though it is impossible to do so in quite the same way. The brain may even behave as if the limb still exists. It takes practice to integrate and incorporate the new habits of a different belief and way of being.
The current reality, when not being fully enjoyed, can be a strong deterrent in being able to fix your focus on what you desire, as well as, become a strong enforcer of doubt. When in pursuit of one's desirings, doubt is often given too much power as a purveyor of verity. If you have been enjoying a segment of your time, and doubt starts to creep in about the love, goodness or abundance lasting, then it is an indication that a limiting belief is in play creating a schism between who you really are and how you think you should be. This incongruency of self with Self always feels unpleasant and is a signal that your thoughts and ensuing emotions are heading in a direction of resistance and struggle.
For many on the planet, enjoyment and suffering have been intertwined, due to the belief that enjoyment can only come out of pain. It is seen as a reward or relief, rather than a state unto itself. So many on the Earth plane are not aware of, and do not practice, change as a functional state of evolution. The motivation for changing beliefs and behaviours typically come out of some version of unhappiness with the current state of affairs. There often needs to be a strong or intensely unpleasant catalyst for you to really begin to transform some element of your selves or your lives in order for an easing to occur. In this case, doubt can play a pivotal role for the better, if it is used as an encouragement to question the beliefs that have resulted in unwanted themes of experiences in your life.
The current shifts are allowing for the possibility of more ease than ever before in living your desires. This works in conjunction with your growing awareness that upon which you focus creates your experience. Once you have fully recognized that your experiences are based on what YOU are vibrating, then the world is your oyster, as the saying goes. There is still the wanting to argue for your limitations by wanting to present proof of why that isn't so and that the real culprits of unpleasantness are the others in your lives. There has been centuries worth of unnecessary struggle due to seeing an other (including a godhead) as the limiter or purveyor of goodness in one's life. It has been one of the longest held and most largely perpetuated disempowering myths on the planet. The ongoing belief in, and the challenging of, is currently being played out in so many ways within your current timeline upon the Earth plane.
Do not wait for the other shoe to drop, as there does not have to be one. Be aware of your expectations, especially during this delicate time of new growth. With practice it becomes the norm to expect the best, because the more you expect it, the more it is so, until it just is. There is a frisson of wanting to doubt what is changing and what is possible and the encouragement is to 'stay the course' which you have begun. It is important to nurture the growing trust of your selves and of how creation actually works.
Allowing your selves to be loved as who you are has been a challenge as you have been trying to be something you are not. Know that when you are feeling negatively that you are creating a distance between self and Self and diminishing your sense of wholeness and lovability. It is an indication that you are trying to make true something which is not. You are trying to make true, or prove, some story about your self which is not rooted in wholeness. Common story themes include not being enough and therefore not worthy of love. The amount of effort, time and energy that goes into proving and justifying this, or similar stances, never feels good.
Explore the various methods that find their way to you, which enhance your ability to be fully you in all of its wondrous wholeness. That you isn't "if and when", it is always right here, right now, ever evolving.
