We’ve all come to this here and now equipped with inherent abilities. This is the ‘tool chest’ we were born with, the one we have that is an expression of who and what we are as beings. We’ve come equipped with bodies capable of intelligence of mind, of emotion, and of spirit.
Along the way, we’ve also collected many tools in order to help us navigate in this world, this world which, to so many of us, has always seemed like an ‘alien’ environment.
Most people will know what I mean here by ‘alien’. What I mean is the environment we’ve created as humans, socially, economically, politically, and in all ways of human interaction which have been ‘alien’ to our innate sense of what our beingness is all about. There’s a primal disconnect between our human ways of interacting with the all life on this planet and the evidence of this is all over everything we touch.
It isn’t that this planet Herself is ‘alien’ to us, or so strange and inconcieveably distorted in relation to who and what we are. It’s our unconscious collective human interaction with everything that’s become dysfunctional.
Our level of connection with our Mother Gaia, with this living entity that is the very foundation of our physical existence, has been on a long journey into separation. We see the results of this long journey as we look around and see how close we’ve come to the edge of survival as a species.
The end point of this journey of separation in our consciousness from Gaia, the source of our life-force in form, is, of course, the inability to live and continue to be viable on Her surface. Sever this connection and it’s all over. Duh!
But, I wish to speak here about one of the tools I’ve collected over my lifetime to help me with navigating this transition from disconnection and distortion back to connection again.
Many of these tools were presented to me in proverbial duh moments. I’d be lying if I were to say that I was smart enough to find them or create them all by myself. Some of the most obvious ones were brought to me by the most casual person on my path, and others came via direct contact with angelic, celestial or earth-based devas.
While this tool may seem too simple to be effective, I’ve found it to be extremely helpful in my search for the truth of what I’m perceiving and in assisting me to be able to tell where I’m going. Let me just say that this is the most powerful item in the tool chest I’ve collected which have enhanced those tools I came equipped with.
With that introduction, here is the top pick of my list.
If it feels wrong, it is wrong.
I may not (and normally don’t) know the details of what is wrong with whatever it is, but if it feels bad, if it feels off, if it feels wrong, it is. The end.
It’s taken me decades of rebuilding my trust with my own ability to know what it is I’m experiencing. All the propaganda on not being smart enough, not having enough information (which is true, by the way), all of this is just nonsense in the final assessment.
If I allow the straight fact that I don’t know-it-all in all its details to trip me up here, then, for certain, it’s a duh moment that just keeps on going like the Energizer Bunny.
I’ve found that knowing something is out of alignment with truth through my feelings and honoring this is the first and most important step to being able to be balanced enough to move forward with confidence, or, perhaps, to stay still and just watch for the evidence I know will be revealing itself.
Once I honor the feeling I’m having, I’m watching to see what reveals itself and the evidence always appears. The secret here is to withhold judgments and to simply observe patiently.
I’ve found that what’s in the way to observing patiently is, well, everything I think I know. The reality is often closer to ‘I don’t know’, and furthermore I haven’t even looked.
I’ve become very grateful for my ability to feel into my world-view and into my experiences in each moment. What used to be a nightmare of confusion and just an endless stream of experiences that felt wrong without a clue as to why, has transformed into the crucial hints I need to wake up and observe carefully for the information I need to make critical adjustments in my thinking and my habits.
In other words, this is the premier navigation tool. This consciousness tool has been the only reliable way I’ve found to help me know my location in relation to all things. It’s also been the basis of my ability to know what direction I want to go in order to head toward any destination I choose.
Thanks for the listen. Perhaps some of you may find this helpful on your journey too. Perhaps you’ve already found it to be helpful, and are just happy to get a high five. In any case, I’m happy to get the opportunity to share something that’s been so useful to me.
