Who’s got a problem? 🙋🏼♀️🙋🏾♂️🙋🏼♂️🙋🏻♀️🙋🏾♀️🙋🏻♂️🤦🏼♀️
What if your problem wasn’t a problem?
What if your problems were just designed to keep your mind occupied in a small, consistent bubble of existence?
Let me ask you ~ If you didn’t have your current problems what would you be focused on?
Where would your energy seek to flow, what would it create?
I guarantee it would take you beyond what you currently think is possible.
You see, the rational mind sees problems, whereas the creative mind sees possibility and a natural, abundant evolution into life.
Let me take you deeper.... 💫
Our rational (egoic) mind is problem driven, it’s dedicated to consistently identifying problems and working out ‘how’ to fix them. It operates under the assumption that you’re not whole and that there’s something about you and / or life that needs fixing before you can have your heart and be fully in the world.
The fascinating thing is that this ‘fixing orientation’ is faulty in that it’s NOT actually designed to solve the problem but to reenforce your sense of identity. To give you a consistent experience based on your formative years of who your ego decided you are and what your place is in the world - and it does this amazingly well through the manifestation of actual experiences that match the unconscious beliefs and dialogue expressed to you via your thoughts and feelings.
If you reflect on your life, the problems you’ve had and have, you’ll begin to see consistent patterns and blocks and consistent inner dialogue that you keep knocking up against. It’s the same old story. We can feel like it’s the hand of god holding us back but really it’s our ego’s dedication to the limited identity its formed.
And it will go on - because that’s your ego’s role - to give you a consistent human experience.
That doesn’t mean your ego is the enemy (or another problem ....) and it doesn’t mean you’re bound by it.
So how do we move beyond our life being driven by our real or imagined problems?
We engage the creative (super conscious) mind.
Where as the rational mind asks ‘how’, the creative mind asks ‘what’?
What would I love to create?
You see the creative mind is not problem based, it’s heart based.
It assumes there’s no separation between you and what you truly love. It’s the part of you that is connected to all life. It doesn’t base what it wants on your current situation or what you deem possible, it bases it purely on what you’d love.
The creative mind connects to the truth of what’s in your heart. By receiving and engaging that energy you can build and fuel a vision with resonant emotion. You can begin to open your consciousness and get downloads of specificity and inspired action ~ and if you take that action it’ll carry you into new worlds.
It’s not to deny your problems, that would be ‘the half wise who get dashed against the rocks by reason of their own folly’ (from the book The Kyballion). It’s necessary to have a grip on reality but not be bound by it. To use your will to engage the creative mind and keep coming back to what it is you’d love, just for the sake of having it, no matter how ridiculous or out of reach it seems. To be faithful to that vision and to act on that rather than react to your problems.
Reacting to problems begets more problems, acting on what you love begets an open door to the magic of life.
This is really about self mastery....moving forward notice your automatic tendency to not only create them but to focus on your problems, when you catch yourself acknowledge them and bring your focus back to what you’d love. Cement that by taking obvious ACTION towards what you want and you’re going to find what you love gets traction and the energy builds which by default drains the energy and focus on outside problems.
It’s a consistent practice for both the Novice and the Master ~ having your heart and freedom is worth it.
You’ll be amazed how fast your life shifts and opens to new and beautiful horizons of your making.
