I felt grumpy and short tempered. I was floundering in what wasn’t going right in my life. I didn’t feel good in my body and was emotionally eating.
I felt disconnected – disconnected to myself, to others, and to source. I had low energy. I felt deeply unsatisfied.
Suffice it to say, I felt really cruddy.
This morning I realized what happened.
For the last several months I’ve been diligent in doing things to keep me in a high vibrational state – not just to feel good, but because I know that when I’m in that place, life flows much more smoothly.
I feel centered, balanced, and grounded when I’m in this state. My internal compass/intuition helps guide me through life, from one miracle to another. I feel a deeper connection to everything. I feel joy as a theme, and drama and conflict doesn’t tend to “stick” to me.
This is the way it’s meant to be. This is reflective of our true nature when we’re connected to the divine within.
But the last couple of days I fell off the wagon, so to speak, on the heels of an extended weekend with family who were visiting.
We had a wonderful time, but the things that I do to keep me connected to that higher vibrational state, such as my morning meditation and yoga, journaling, being in nature, getting enough rest, reading inspirational messages, watching a joyful Youtube clip, or reflecting on things I’m grateful for upon waking and going to bed – I let these things slide.
It’s okay. I’m not beating myself up over it, but it is something for me to pay attention to.
Today I awoke and did those things during the day to bring me back to that higher vibrational state, and I’ve been feeling great!
The contrast between today and the last couple of days is striking and it reminds me of the power we have as spiritual beings in human form to influence the quality of our life experience in each day, in each moment.
What’s also interesting, is how when I was in that lower vibrational state these last couple of days, it was as if I was slumbering around in a fog or stupor. I was so disconnected from myself, I wasn’t even conscious that I was in a lower frequency and that I could pull myself out of it. I was in a sense “unplugged” and not all systems were firing.
I fell back into an old default setting of slogging it out through the day, not understanding what the heck had happened.
Today I reflect back on things I was churning in my mind that felt charged and they now have no charge – no bite. The worries and the upset I was feeling all melted away.
The analogy that comes to mind is that I’ve been flying beneath the clouds these last couple of days. Things felt dark and dreary. It was hard to see things clearly. Today my life or circumstances haven’t changed, but I chose to shift a bit and move a little higher above the clouds where it’s clear and bright.
It was a simple choice. I made a minor adjustment to get me to a new place, and the impact is immeasurable and profound.
I mentioned gratitude earlier. Every day I reflect on what I’m grateful for, because I know that when I focus on what I’m grateful for (and there is always something to be grateful for) it expands.
Today is Thanksgiving in the US. It’s a wonderful day to reflect on all the things I’m grateful for. It gives me great pleasure to reflect on how much I’ve grown and expanded this past year, and what I’m witnessing within and without.
My life circumstances haven’t altered that much at all, yet I feel much more joyful.
The quality of the relationships in my life have deepened and have grown in love, and that includes the relationship I have with myself.
I experience and witness more beauty on the planet all the time.
I feel a greater sense of connectedness with everything and everyone.
I’m living life from my heart more and that feels really good and spot on.
My intuitive abilities are expanding within me and guiding my everyday decisions, helping me stay connected to my soul mission and desires.
I feel great in my body. In fact, my body feels better and I have more energy than I had twenty years ago.
I feel a deeper peace within.
I have learned to trust and surrender more.
I’m observing more and more people waking up and being more in their hearts.
I feel a growing excitement for the dreams I hold in my heart for me, for humanity, and for the planet.
I feel myself reconnecting more and more to my mastery and to the divine within.
And I’m committed to staying on the wagon.
With gratitude and love,
I’ll leave you with this wonderful song that came to me while writing this. So fitting:
