Clarity is something our souls crave. But we walk around in our dim little haze, comfortable with a gray little world. We like it. It fits. It requires nothing of us but to keep sleep-walking. But Clarity? That bitch wants things from you! She wants you to step up. She wants you to take own-her-ship of your life, no more victim, no more wimpy chic. She wants you to let your light shine!
How do you know when you’re clear? You just do. It’s a feeling in your blood, a holy presence that sweeps away the mists of doubt and you can see everything with super sharp focus. You know what that feels like. We’ve all felt it from time to time. Maybe a better question to ask is: how do you get clear? Well, personally, I pray.
Sometimes, I’m bipping right along and I don’t necessarily want more clarity. Right? Things seem just fine the way they are, why rock the boat? Why ask to see things any differently? After all, if it’s different, I might be required to adjust my perception. Change my mind. Change my expectations. Change my life from mediocre to magnificent. Hate when that happens!
Okay, so there I was: driving from my house up to visit K one day a couple of years ago. I was dating a pretty groovy guy. He wasn’t Mr. Right, but at that time he was Mr. Close Enough. Things were going well. We were having fun. Why, oh why rock the proverbial boat? Something in me just knew. Something in me wanted to get clear. Dang! So out of the blue, I’m driving along and I just start praying. Show me the truth, I said to the general all-pervading glorious goodness all around me.
Well, it wasn’t five minutes later that Mr. Man called. I picked up my phone and we started to chat and before you can say Silence is Golden, he spit out a piece of truth. Bless his little heart, he didn’t think it was all that big a deal, but to me? Yeah, super big deal. Deal breaker, actually. Up to that moment I had been happy with fuzzy, and then something changed. In that dazzling, lightning-bolt moment, I got crystal clear. And then suddenly fuzzy just wasn’t enough anymore. Love, C
My two cents: pray for truth and then have the courage to bless what shows up.
Yup, sometimes you don’t want to know, even when your soul already knows. Sometimes close enough is good enough, until it’s not anymore. Seems every time I’ve prayed for clarity, it’s been when I already knew the answer, I just needed confirmation. When you are sure of the way you’re going you don’t stop to ask for directions. But when you feel lost you probably are.
I was just driving home from dropping my daughter off at school, I was listening to the latest Abraham-Hicks workshop. Someone asked a question about the latest book that has not been released yet called Spirituality, the Final Frontier. They said they named it that because getting in vibrational alignment with your Source is the last thing people try before they completely give up hope, but it is the only thing that ever really works to begin with. Ahhh! Clarity is alignment. . . and you just know when you’re there.
As good as it feels to be in alignment and have the clarity that we all really crave, sometimes it feels better to be where you are. With the boyfriend that you know in your head is not really the one but your heart is hoping will someday change. Or at the job that feels like, if those other people would just leave me alone to do my work it would be okay I guess. Really? We all know that we didn’t come here for okay. We came here for amazing, and your soul knows it, and will call you on it every single time.
Do you trust your intuition? Do you know when something comes up if your initial reaction is your fear-ego or your intuition-higher-self? Try this out for size: next time someone asks you to do something, don’t just unconsciously do what you always do. Stop, think, feel. What comes up for you? Would you just rather do something you really don’t want to do because it seems easier than telling someone you don’t want to?
Would you rather just stay in your comfort zone because it’s easier than trying something new even though you might love it? I have been asking myself these questions lately and I’m so happy with what is opening up for me. I am seeing life in a whole new way. xo-K
My two cents: open your eyes and see things clearly, possibly for the first time.
