Breathe... It's all within your reach! If you have been feeling a bit panicked by your manifesting results or the lack of them, read on...
We live in a very fast paced society that encourages us to constantly set goals, with time frames and measurements. While this can be very appropriate in many settings such as business or education we have a tendency to live by the appearance of the end result, rather than the journey itself.
Have you ever been in a situation that you wanted to work out exactly as you planned, but there was a major delay in getting to your goal? You prayed, you meditated, you did your affirmations etc for quite some time only to see the circumstances stay the same or even get worse? Ambiguity and uncertainty reigned supreme and drove you crazy at the same time!
Well, I certainly have gone through this in many areas of my life and the key is Temperance. Temperance means to step back and flow with the ambiguity. Stop resisting and instead make the decision to "temper" the voice inside of you that is insisting on the structure, the goals, the measurements of success and the "logical conclusions." Maybe the true measure of success is not your end result but your ability to flow with ease while you are on the journey. Maybe patience and tolerance or unconditional love and releasing resistance are the true "goals" that Spirit has in store for you in this lesson.
So how do you put this into action? One of the best ways to master "temperance" is to breathe deeply and get centered in the present. The push for an "outcome" comes from being in the future. The anxiety that you may feel at the thought of your situation potentially not working out, usually stems from focusing on the past.
There is nothing that being in the present moment cannot fix! As you practice temperance you will be able to slow your thoughts down enough to get the true guidance that is there for you.
Mastering temperance enables you to hear the truth about your situation and trust the guidance that you are seeking! Your deepest desires will be met when you balance temperance and inspired action!
Try This: Take a Healing Walk
Movement is one of the best ways to receive pure and accurate spiritual guidance.
This week go out to the park or beach for a walk. Before you start your walk, set an intention like "healing" or ask a question that you would like an answer to. Do not use an Ipod or other music device or cell phone while doing your healing walk!
The sounds of nature are all that you need. Tuning into the birds, the rustle of the trees, or children's laughter enables you to connect to the voice within you that has all of your answers!
