Our lower consciousness focuses on distractions and drama <which are illusions> because it is easier than taking responsibility for our lives. Maureen went on to say that we were taught to survive rather than thrive, which limits us. We need to start viewing everything outside ourselves as "that's interesting, but how does it serve me and my ascension?" If not, let it go.
We need to make a commitment to love and self love. Ask yourself: what can I do to love myself more? It's not just about getting yourself a pedicure or a massage, it's about changing our way of thinking … it's all about choosing our self-talk:
What if we no longer need to be right or have points to prove?
What if we chose not to be a victim anymore?
What if before got up each day, we said a prayer to ask for stabilization?
What if we will no longer set up anything that would betray us?
What if we slowed down and only focused on the present moment … where every blessing exists?
How can we love our neighbor as we love ourselves when we don't love ourselves?
Maureen talked about how if we don't do the work, it will be like looking through a pane of glass where we will be able to see others who have grace and ease and we want it as well but we can't have it because they did the work and we didn't. It will be just beyond our grasp.
When there is a problem there is always a solution, so use your breath and figure it out because the solution is in you so don't seek it elsewhere. Always look for the lesson in any perceived "bad" situation: for example, if we procrastinate about something we want, the universe will pop in and help <even if it seems bad at the time it is for our highest good>.
Process: Name a problem <which was created by your mind and ego> … then visualize stepping away from it … then have a commitment to be with another perspective without fear or judgment. First, ask yourself: is my survival at stake? If the answer is no, then think about how much wasted energy you have spent already on the problem. Seek another perspective: be neutral, observant, non-attached and non-judgmental.
Breathe in love and light into the center of your heart … breathe out the problem <the parts of ourselves that are not truth> … breathe in your power and then breathe out weakness and self-doubt and not good enough which are all lies and distortion … repeat 3x.
It is interesting how synchronistic everything is RIGHT NOW for me. Apparently this is an important message for me because I got it from 4 different places this week … so I am putting the universe on notice that I AM PAYING ATTENTION and I AM practicing self-love!
