Today I had a balance with my dear friend Dimitri, who just does Life Alignment for his own growth and pleasure... but he is a very gifted practitioner. We have regular swap balances... as I do with a few other practitioners like Reni Armbruster. These dear people help me keep on track - and I highly recommend that you find a group of people that you can receive swap sessions with - especially if you are a practitioner of sorts yourself... its so good to receive as well as give.
My balance today found old anger and resentment and a good dose of fear still stuck in there... this was old stuff - stuff I have been working with for some time.. but there was this resistant sticky layer that was still sitting in there. I knew it was there - I saw it on my morning walk as my head went wafting off into an old story that was pretty negative - and I caught it and found myself thinking - "wow - I am still telling myself this story?...That means I am still holding onto it and therefor will find it perpetuating in my life... do I really want to keep on playing a stuck old records that has an outcome I don't even like???"
So we went deeper into it - finding the location in the body where it was sitting and then shifting the final layers into the light... this does not mean that the old pain body is happy to let it go. No - our ego loves our old negative fear based stories... they are designed to keep us into the "devil we know" vs "devil we don't know" so - called safety patterns... safe for our ego - as it loves this gooey stuff... but not good for soul development, happiness and progress. This is where consciousness comes in - connecting to the highest aspect of ourselves that can lovingly take the other side into hand and guide us into better choices - gently - and sometimes - not too gently - talking to us... "Arleen - listen to yourself...you're telling the old story again - you know that what you focus on becomes a vibration that brings more of this to you... is this what you want to attract? Is this the lower vibration you want to sit in right now?? No..it is not. So - what can you focus on instead? What story can you rather tell yourself? What can you look at to shift gear right now???"
So I stop and take a breath and reconnect - coming back into the present moment - and then reassure my smaller self, and start to focus on all the good things in my life - and all the positive aspects - and soon - I am feeling pretty good...and then - I become inspired and energised again.
Yes - this takes a bit of work - it takes a bit of effort - but my day is so much better for it.. and the results show... things do get better...my health improves... my energy levels improve - and I get happy!!!!
So its time to let go of these old stories - and yes - it will be a work in progress.. we have invested a lot in these old stories - well - our ego has.... and is somewhat addicted to them. So practice things that make you feel better... find the stories that are uplifting... let yourself day dream into good stories instead of having nightmares in your daily mind. See how this changes your day and your daily performance.
Its worth the effort.... you - are worth the effort.
