3 Shifts to Support Your BIG Leaps

115323297_44572f4e54_oIt takes energy to navigate the BIG Shifts and turn them into BIG Leaps.

How can you free up some rocket fuel for the adventure?

Surrender some of the inner constructs upon which your world is founded. The more you are willing to let go of what you know, the sooner the new can make it's way to you.

Here are 3 shifts in perspective that will increase your energy, unleash your flow and activate your BIG Leap:

1. Life is perfect as is.

When you've taken a big detour in your world, and things are out of whack, creating your own reality can seem like a seductive solution.

Have you ever noticed that creating your own reality can bring on as much angst as the BIG Shift you're wanting to make?

You don't have to create your reality, you just have to cleanse your senses to feel the reality and its psychedelic beauty, its colorfulness, its greenness, its aliveness. Osho

The next time you find yourself forcing the reality creation let go of the need to make it happen and partner on the flow.

2. Welcome the discomfort, as well as the delight. When you get upset about change it’s usually that you have an attachment to what you already know. This is the biggest landscape for transformation.

Instead of avoiding discomfort, dive deeply into it. I promise that you will come through it more of who you truly are than you were going in. If you’re afraid, plunge off the precipice. If you’re uncomfortable, welcome the potential that is pulsating at the edge of your awareness. Stuff happens, move onto the next moment. Change IS freedom! Movement is YOU!

Please, don't walk around as a human doing. Wield your power and embrace the alivening genius of your dynamic being.

3. Answer the call of your unique genius. Those who create great shifts, start a movement or spark breakthroughs, walk along the path not travelled. Some may consider that you need great courage to choose to walk where no one treads. It ain't necessarily so.

It's not about courage and conviction, it's more about what's compelling. Something beckons to you, silently or forcefully, that you must say “YES” to. It doesn't matter if there's any physical confirmation that this is the road to take. You don't flinch when others don't see it your way. There is something that you know, even when you don't have any evidence. It's as if your body moves you, of its own will, along a trajectory that propels you to an unknown destination. You just know that you must.

So it's not about mustering up anything, it's about following the energy of what calls to you at your core. It may not be comfortable, it may be downright unpleasant, but you can't just say “No.”

Tune in and sense your co-creative partnership with life. Feel the delight in being. Wonder is the frequency of your innate essence. The real ‘you' comes alive in being. Partner with your vision of life.  Awaken to BEing.

The precipice of true freedom is poised at this inner gateway. Nothing out there is holding you back, the biggest barrier to your essential freedom is you and you can certainly shift that.

3 Levels of Change: Hindrance or Help?

1226-businessWould you prefer to struggle with change or have it pull you forward?

Sometimes change is thrust upon you by external events: job loss, passing of a loved one, an illness or an accident. Sometimes it's a path that you choose.

It can seem inevitable in such moments to resist the ‘reality’ of what is occurring. Change of this magnitude creates a fissure in your well composed world. Listen up, my friends, this very break is a portal to tremendous potential.

What if you could reorient to the situation in a way that empowered you instead of fractured your being? I'm not asking you to deny what is. I will, however, invite you to reframe it in a way that supports you.

Here are 3 ways to experience change and how each pathway can hinder or help you:

1. React to change from your emotions. More often than not, this perspective accentuates the personal predicament. This is a combination of feelings + story. You can find the source of this problem somewhere in your past – some place, some thing, some one did “x” and you now feel “y” so you'll only do “z.” Don't get sucked into this energy drain vortex! This is still a very dense energy. The energy is pretty low vibe and the bandwidth is limited. It's constricted by external influences, whether they're in your past, present or future. Chaos and uncertainty rule the day. Responsibility is projected.

2. Explore change from your mind. This perspective includes a heavy dose of intellect, following the rabbit trail of your thoughts and beliefs. No doubt a well meaning friend, or book, has already shared with you the existential inevitability of change. Like diving into a frigid pool, this understanding doesn't make it any more inviting. Don't be seduced by the brain candy! This is a very fixed and limited energy. There's very little movement. You're either a victim or a victor. Polarity and duality are rampant. Responsibility is outsourced.

3. Invoke change from your energy. This perspective calls in the highest aspect of you, the infinite version of yourself. You might call it your higher self or inner self, your soul or essence. It's who you are when you remember ‘who you really are.' Your heart and wholeness are fully engaged. Change from this stream is a dance of surrender, power and creatively sourced action. You partner with the forces of creation, taking responsibility for your part in the dance. Whatever the moment requires you become and the dance is full of grace and majesty. Paradox is your everyday companion. Responsibility is embraced.

Change is merely a shift in energy, a doorway to something more than you’ve ever been before.

What is the ‘more' you are invoking? Make sure to post below.

Less is More

It can be difficult to find your point of presence when you're in the throes of a BIG Shift.

When massive change hits a crucial area of your world, you can find yourself making long term decisions in a split second.

BIG Shifts often require speedy choices, even when you have little certainty of the outcome. Sometimes it's unavoidable: if you've experienced a natural disaster you need to secure food, shelter and safety for yourself and your loved ones. Sometimes rash choices occur when you're trying to avoid the fallout massive change can bring on.

What if in the midst of the chaos you chose to settle into the stillness instead of free falling into the frenzy?

Are You Powered By The Problem Or The Possibility?

BIG Shifts can make uncertainty  look like the ‘new normal.'  When there's SO much movement there's very little time for research, learning and planning. You often have to fly with your gut instinct and go with what feels right.

It's a dynamic experience which requires your full presence. Yeah, sometimes its flow, sometimes its funk. It's movement, nonetheless. And your focus shapes your experience.

The real seeker of truth never seeks truth. On the contrary, he tries to clean himself of all that is untrue, inauthentic, insincere – and when his heart is ready, purified, the guest comes. You cannot find the guest, you cannot go after him. He comes to you; you just have to be prepared. You have to be in a right attitude.

Osho

The choices you make aren't the determining factor in navigating the experience powerfully, it is who you are BEing that shifts the flow of just in time resources to gracefully support, instead of hinder, you.

One of the ways you can invoke the possibility is to schedule lots of ‘white space' in your calendar. Create pockets of play to shift the problem. Use the white space to muse, daydream and indulge in radical self care. Dance, sing, write and connect with people who care about you.

You will find that the BIG Shift creates an opportunity for a BIG Leap. All you need to do is tend the fertile ground of your being and it will find YOU.

Less is more, and basking in the white space will elicit a plethora of insights, ideas and inspiration. It will also invoke the cosmic forces to come and play.
