This morning, I read over the December forecast from The Power Path. A part that felt true for me and As You Evolve was this:
In defining RESPONSIBILITY, I like to include “the ability to respond” as part of the definition. You should always be the first responder to whatever is happening in your life. You should be the first responder to your own issues. It helps if you can always come from the place of accepting that you create absolutely everything and every situation in your life. The power in that responsibility is that if you created it, you can uncreate it, you can change it, and you can always create something new.
What this says is that we are a lot more powerful than we think.
What happens when we know we are powerful creators, we…
…stop blaming others
…stop blaming ourselves
…know that since we created something, we can uncreate it
…embrace that we are powerful and what we think and do MATTERS
…live more fully in the moment
…see life becomes a fun game to navigate
…invite life to become magical again
…understand how much easier it is to feel good about who we are and what we do
Something you can do today…
Take a quick inventory of your life.
Maybe not the whole thing, but right now, in this moment.
Where are you feeling uncomfortable right now?
What doesn’t feel like ‘you’?
Where are you sacrificing your inner self to please others, the world, your family?
When you’ve identified where responsibility may not have been taken in your life, you create a roadmap between where you are and where you want to be.
This is where the magic comes in!
Learning to create your own life must come from within.
But it’s not without looking at the painful, the deep, and the messy – the places where we may have created something that didn’t fit, or didn’t work, but we can change it now.
It requires taking a peek at where things aren’t working, where things are rubbing you the wrong way – then looking at it with a curious eye to truly feel and understand what’s going on here – whether it’s growth, or just not right for you. It’s a matter of getting to the root of it. Doing a stream of consciousness can help.
When you begin your path to personal evolution, you start to understand what makes you tick. What feels good. What lights you up.
When you’re in tune with your mind, your heart, and your body, you start to see patterns.
You start to experience life in a different way.
You begin playing with more intention and trust and love.
And when you operate out of those good feelings, you receive more of that from the universe.
If you want to embrace more abundance and generosity, give something away.
If you want more love, share your heart and vulnerability with someone else.
If you want to respond more kindly to others, practice compassion with yourself.
If you want more personal responsibility, start taking it + be the first responder to your life.
The universe always gives you what you put out, so the more you can feel good and share what you most want with others, the more you’ll receive.
The key is opening up to the signs that you’re on the right path – for you…
As you start this journey of personal evolution, it may feel big and scary and unknown. But the truth is that you’re never alone and this journey is not one you take independently. There are signs that will move through you and outside of you, whether through a penny on the ground in response to a recent intention for abundance, a card in the mail after sending some of your own love out into the world, or a sudden a-ha realization that helps you see the world a different way.
Take note of what you most want.
Step into the light of personal responsibility.
Trust the universe to provide you with what you need… then just keep your eyes out for magic.
It always shows up when you’re on the right path.
And, you are.
Love from another chilly + sunny day from Portland,
