5 Thoughts That Are Dragging You Down

Published

on

Is anyone else feeling it? It seems like there is this build up of energy on our planet at this time, more so than ever before. Everyone I talk to is sorting through personal challenges and forced to look at their egos -myself included! We are literally being pushed to the max so we can let go of the thought patterns and limiting beliefs that weigh us down. Intense, yet beautiful times!

Solar Flares

Cosmically speaking, even the sun is currently blasting a powerful solar storm at Earth. What does that have to do with anything? Well, considering the fact that we are all made of energy, high vibrating cosmic energies affect us. They bring to the surface any lower density energies that dwell within us and our planet, which explains why so much is coming to the surface at a very rapid pace. I am not much of an astrologer but we also have the mercury retrograde going on, which is apparently masterful at pushing us to go inwards.

That being said, if you feel you are going crazy, are experiencing heavy emotions, feel confused or think you are alone experiencing all of this, well YOU ARE NOT ALONE. The key is to understand that it is not a “bad” thing, nor is it a random occurrence. We are going through a major evolutionary leap of consciousness on our planet, and freeing ourselves from our own mental shackles is a huge part of it. Actually, it’s the whole point! Because it is only then that we will be able to reflect and create a more harmonious world.

This entire process has allowed me to observe some of the ways we let our egos take over and limit our ability to feel free and at peace within ourselves. Here is a list of 5 thoughts that once released, will bring us to a whole new level of freedom!

1. I am More/Less, Worthy/Worthless, Better/Worse…

Ah the belief in our separation from our Source. If you have looked into the fundamental nature of our reality through quantum physics or spirituality, you probably know -at least intellectually -that we are all one and equal at our core. So why do we often feel so separate? For a very good reason actually: so we can have the experience of separation. Much like it’s more fun to play a video game than it is to stare at the CD, it is more enriching for the source of life to project itself into many forms. But along with the belief in our separation from source came a boat load of illusory perceptions including feelings of inferiority or superiority.

We are now pushed to let go of the thoughts in our minds that put so much effort into feeling better (or worse) about ourselves through comparison, appearances, what we do externally etc. When we can truly see how this effort stems from us feeling separate and inadequate as we already are, we can then recognize it as an illusion and let it go.

Separation isn’t real. Scientifically; it isn’t true. Spiritually; it isn’t true. Experientially; it pulls us away from feeling whole and at peace from being truly who we are. It blocks our natural desire to share our gifts with the world by making it into a personal loss or gain game. Imagine the freedom in letting ourselves be who we truly are with no second thought or idea that one must chase after self-worth. Now feel it! This is our true essence.

“Deep down inside the shy person or this person who is suffering from this sense of inferiority, there’s the desire, the unexpressed desire to be superior. And inside the person who acts superior who seems to have a big confident ego, is always the hidden fear that he might be inferior. And his whole acting out is to compensate for that hidden fear of being inferior.” – Eckhart Tolle

[accordion title=”Exercise: Meditative Visualization”]

Here is a meditative visualization I have guided myself through that assisted me in feeling the difference between feeling either bigger/smaller versus simply being complete and one with all of existence.

Oneness1. Be in a comfortable position, close your eyes and deeply connect to the movement and sensation of your breath.

2. Once you feel more relaxed, visualize yourself as this puzzle piece amongst other puzzle pieces that all make up a sphere.

3. Now try to push against other pieces to make yourself bigger. Notice the effort in trying to squeeze yourself out of the whole.

4. Now make yourself feel smaller and inferior, picture your puzzle piece deflating and sinking in. Notice how it disconnects you from the whole.

5. Take a deep breath, and simply let yourself be who you already are. If you experience fear or discomfort in the process of letting yourself be, simply feel it out without resistance and allow the emotions to come and go.

6. Once you have let yourself rest as you are amongst the whole, see how your unique piece of the puzzle already fits perfectly. Feel the completion that is experienced once you allow yourself to be as you are. Feel how in this natural and effortless state, you are one with everything, with every piece of existence. You become the sphere, experiencing itself as a unique piece of the puzzle!

7. Ask yourself: Does comparison, feelings of jealousy, inferiority or superiority resonate any longer when seeing life from the perspective of oneness?

In my experience, I feel nothing but love for everyone when I let the illusions of separation fade. We are all on our own unique learning journeys and not one is better than the other! (Click Here to Listen to a Talk and Clearing Process on “Judgment & Comparison”)

2. The Truth is “Out There”

I need my guru! I rely on the news to know what to feel/believe about world events. The only way for me to gain knowledge is by reading what “knowledgable” people have to say! 

The tendency to always seek out for knowledge instead of reaching in; that’s one worth letting go of. There is great information out there, no doubt about that! And there is also misleading information. But this doesn’t matter as much as developing trust in our own intuition about the information we are exposed to.

For us to be able to see clearly and not have anything interfere with how we process information, we need to let go of the interference! That includes fears, prejudices, judgmental thoughts, self-doubt and how we tend to let emotional reactions take over our ability to observe from a neutral state. I understand the passion for finding truth, but in my own experience, I have found that the most important thing was weeding out every fear-based belief and reaction that came in between me and my ability to simply OBSERVE and FEEL what rings true to me.

“The truth about life and lie about life is not measured by others but by your intuition, which never lies.” – Santosh Kalwar

3. I Am Not “On Purpose”, I Must Find “My Purpose”

Be YouWe do have a purpose, and we’re in it right now! What I mean by that, is that purpose isn’t a destination, it is the very thing we came on this planet to do: experience, learn, play, evolve, create… and whether we are consciously aware of it or not; that’s what we are always doing! Our purpose isn’t a goal, it is an ongoing process. Every moment we are in is purposeful, because within it lies the possibility -or should I say inevitability to 1.Experience life 2.Grow and 3.Continue the unfoldment of our journey.

Sure, it is possible to hit stagnant periods in our lives. But even those are purposeful since the feeling of stagnancy is here to make us aware of whatever it is we are holding on to that is keeping us from moving fluidly and peacefully through our journey.

“But I want to accomplish something grand with my life! I want to make an impact, I want to follow my passion…” This is all noble and good, but first and foremost, we need to observe whether or not those statements come from a feeling of inadequateness or feeling that we are not where we should be in this very moment. Because we are! Once we let go of all of the extra thoughts, rigid expectations and judgments that cloud our natural state of completeness, there will be nothing stopping us from sharing our gifts to the world. From this effortless state of being, it will happen naturally. And no, it doesn’t need to “look a certain way” : )

“Do trees have to try hard to purify the air? Does the sun have to try hard to light up the sky? Of course not… they simply do because it is their natural state and gift to do so. Being on purpose does not require anything more than to BE who we already are. In our natural state, we will contribute to humanity and the planet just like every other aspect of nature already is.”

4. I Can Make Mistakes

I usually end each bullet point with a quote… but I can’t wait with this one:

“If babies held the same tendency toward self-criticism as adults, they might never learn to walk or talk. Can you imagine infants stomping, ‘Aarggh! Screwed up again!’ Fortunately, babies are free of self-criticism. They just keep practicing.” – The Way of the Peaceful Warrior

Only Experiences, No MistakesHere’s an analogy: If the road you took led to a dead-end, NO PROBLEM! Now you know this road leads to a dead end. You can now add that map to your internal GPS. It wasn’t a waste of time, it wasn’t a mistake; you learned from walking down that road. You are now more experientially rich. You visited places you would have never visited if you took another “easier” direction. Honour that, let go of judgment. We are not here to go from A to B in a straight line, we are here to experience infinite possibilities, and there isn’t a “wrong” one. And if similar dead-ends keep showing up in your life, it’s probably because you resist the most important lesson: quit judging so much! After all, it’s when we let go of judgment and re-enter a neutral state that we can truly learn from our experiences and deepen our connection to who we truly are.

The freedom we feel once we stop beating ourselves up to fit a narrow path of “perfection” is really, really amazing. So stop, breathe and know that everything is perfect no matter the outcome. There are no mistakes, only experiences. You live, you learn ♫

5. Shooting the Messengers: “It’s Your Fault!”

Pointing FingerIt is easy to point fingers out there when something is upsetting us. But when we understand that we are also here on earth to learn, grow and wizen up, we can’t keep ignoring the fact that we also have some work to do on ourselves. By work, I mean OBSERVING. Observing our patterns. Observing what keeps repeating in our lives to see what it is trying to tell us. Noticing what’s driving us. Is it fear? Is it resentment? Is it the avoidance of something we are afraid to deal with, or an emotion we are afraid to feel again? What are we trying to defend?

When you shift your approach to life from “searching for the one to blame” to “searching for the lesson to learn,” you experience a HUGE level up in how free you feel. The events or people our egos would think to blame are actually the messengers, bringing us a letter saying “hey, you really got a sensitivity/disempowering belief about yourself there, investigate what it’s all about. P.S. I love you.”

The way we have been conditioned to look at it is: “If it is uncomfortable, I must avoid. If it hurts, I must blame the trigger. If I’m afraid, that is because the world is a scary place.” I know it seems almost like a second nature to judge uncomfortable feelings and seek to avoid them at all cost. I am going through this myself. but I can also say from experience that allowing myself to feel what I feel and investigating what is the root of my trigger -as opposed to simply blaming what/who brought it up –has brought me the greatest freedom I have ever experienced.

So here’s a new way to look at freedom. It’s not a positive-thinking technique. It’s not about avoiding anything and chasing after something else. It’s not about skipping the bumpy road and the button pushers. It’s about getting rid of those buttons! Otherwise it’s like blaming the fire for the gasoline you carry yourself. When we know ourselves to be the creator of our reality -not the victim -everything changes!

“These messengers are easy to identify because they materialize as any event or person’s behavior that upsets us. We were invited to do our best not to “shoot the messenger.” Accordingly, we “dismiss the messenger” and in the same breath acknowledge that the value of the upsetting experience is in the message, not its carrier. We don’t blame the mail carrier for bills that are delivered, just as we don’t blame a mirror for what it reflects. Likewise, it’s pointless reacting to reflections of our unintegrated emotional charges.” – Michael Brown – The Presence Process

Here is a great talk and guided clearing meditation to help get to the root of our emotional reactions and clear them:

Useful Tip To Choose Freedom Everyday:

To end this article, I wish to share with you a tip that is personally helping me choose freedom everyday. Whenever you are obsessing over certain thoughts, are caught up in worry or are battling with your mind, ask yourself this powerful question:

“Is This Freeing Me, Right Now?”

If it feels constrictive in your body, let it go, breathe it out and choose freedom.

If your thoughts are attached to a deeper issue within yourself, you can assist yourself through guided clearing meditations such as the one in the video above. But ultimately, it will all come down to a choice between the freedom of this moment and the constriction of being caught up in the mind.

Choosing freedom will not necessarily cause you to stop doing anything about your challenges, but will release you from the unnecessary mental turbulence that is pulling you away from the peace of this moment and clouding your ability to act intuitively anyways.

“Maybe the mind is waiting for you to choose freedom, so that it can have a rest.” – Mooji

Your Life Is Not Limited To One Path

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    In life, we often get stuck telling ourselves stories about what the 'best' path in life to take is. It's often based on chasing others' or societies dreams and aspirations, without looking at our own.

  • Reflect On:

    Do we tell ourselves what the 'right choice' or 'wrong choice' is on our own path? What is it based on? Where does our programming come from? Can we not let go of limiting programming? Is our programming our TRUE path?

It is no secret that life can sometimes feel like a limited paved road laid out before us that we feel the need to stick to. Look at how we are brought up. Most of the time we come into the world and begin gaining our perceptions from those closest to us –our parents. As time goes on we find ourselves in school. Throughout that time we also begin watching what others do around us, what we see on TV and in movies.

What is happening is we are observing and creating an idea of how life should be; the best way to play the game. But what is ‘best?’

How many times have we heard “That’s not the best decision” or “That’s not the best decision for the whole family.” When you look at either statement you realize that “best” is subjective. What the “best” is to one person may not be the “best” to another. Even further, both of the perceptions of “best” are created from whatever belief systems each have created in their own lives. This is the key factor to realize.

We Get Trapped in Belief Systems

In either case, both scenarios have one thing in common, a belief system of what the “best” choice or decision is. When we create a belief system like this, we limit how we view things. We no longer feel what is “best,” but instead we analyze and define “best” based on a story; often a story from the past, based on entirely different times than the present moment.

Let’s take the example of a child coming out of high school today.  9 times out of 10, that child will be told, and may even believe, that the “best” decision they can make for their life is to continue their education at university or college. It does not matter that they do not know what they want to study, or that the education system will potentially cost them $100,000+, many will state that is best -and even have pride about it.

Next, they would be told to get a job so they can buy a house, as owning and buying a house is a smart decision. Should this child begin their life based on these belief systems, more often than not they will take this idea of what is “BEST” throughout the rest of their life. They will judge their decisions by this, express emotions based on this, develop self-esteem based on this and so forth. From then on, every decision they make will be based on this belief system handed down and taught to them.

Even getting specific, what to study in school, what type of job to get, what type of car to buy, how to spend and save money, what type of house to buy and so on. What is really happening with all of this? We are defining the ideal life or what’s “best” and then we limit our life to a small scope of how things should be.

The Deep Truth

Here is the absolute truth, ready? None of it has any real truth to it. It’s just all a belief system. Perception, ideas! But we often live by this and it becomes so real in our minds that we become stuck thinking this is the way to do it. Then when depression and anxiety follow, as we may believe we are stuck, we forget to look back on the belief system that is often caging us and our reality into a small tight space we often don’t deeply resonate with.

Look at our world. We often all chase the same thing, the same stuff because that is what we have been sold as the ideal life. Each area of the world has its own version of this. Who’s life are you really living? Whose dreams are you chasing and carrying out? We take on these beliefs and we begin to sacrifice ourselves, our health, and our soul desires so we can carry out someone else’s idea of “best” that we grabbed onto.

Back to the child from the example above. Now they have grown into a young man or woman and are in a job they don’t truly like. But it pays the bills and lives up to the idea of “best” that has been given to them. Most of the time, people around them will all reinforce that their decisions are the “best” because they have all been sold on the same belief system. “You have to make sacrifices, you have to work really hard to have a good life!” is what we are told. But who says what is “good?” Even when that grown up child is expressing their sadness or frustration for the reality they are in, we continue to reinforce it to protect the idea of ‘the best.’

We take this entirely expansive creative individual playing in an expansive playground called Earth and we confine them to this tiny little narrow path of what the “best” is. Instead of spending their life being able to make any choice they choose, they stay limited to what they have been sold as the “best” even if they don’t truly love it.

Even Deeper

Then you have the even deeper part, we then look upon and judge others when they make “the wrong decisions.” Look at how we view those who change their minds about what they want to play with all the time. What do we say about those people? “They need to make up their mind and get their life on track.” What track? There is a track? Says who? “They didn’t make a smart decision with their money or their house so they are going to pay for it later.” Who says some decisions are better than others? Is it not an experience either way?

You are the creator of your life and reality. You can choose to play and create whatever type of life you choose. And guess what? If you make a decision and start creating a particular life then you realize you want to create something new, you are free to do this!

No matter what story we tell ourselves like: “it’s too late, I can’t change this now, it’s too costly” etc. know that these are all egoic illusions. You are never limited to whatever life you have created even if you have been doing it for 30 years. Remember to ask yourself: the life you are chasing, the goals you have set, who’s goals are they really? Where did you first hear of them? Are they from your heart? Or are they what you have been sold?

Look inside yourself at what YOU TRULY want and how you wish to express yourself and create. Start there, and create from that space. You will see very quickly that you can create anything you choose.

Remember, there is no right or wrong path here. It’s about looking back on what we choose, where we are at and saying “Is this where I want to be? Am I feeling peace? Expressing my deepest self? Am I inspired about where I am at?” and if you aren’t, you create a new path and see how that feels. Follow how you FEEL, not what you seek as right or wrong. Our life reflects our state of consciousness.

The Hero’s Adventure: What Movies Can Teach Us About Facing Our Shadow

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    The Hero's Journey is a multi-staged adventure whereby the 'hero' grows to become a new version of themselves, one that is evolved and at a 'higher level' per se.

  • Reflect On:

    Movies can be viewed in many ways. Some see it as programming others as inspiration. How can we use what we see in movies in our own lives? To grow and evolve as people? To recognize our true callings vs those of Hollywood?

The hero’s adventure is a term popularised by Joseph Campbell based upon his 1949 work “The Hero with a Thousand Faces”. The late Campbell was an American Professor of Literature and a philosopher who described the adventure one must embark upon to fully realise who he/she is.

A simple explanation from Campbell:

“A hero ventures forth from the world of common day into a region of supernatural wonder: fabulous forces are there encountered and a decisive victory is won: the hero comes back from this mysterious adventure with the power to bestow boons on his fellow man.”

Campbell uses the word monomyth to describe this adventure which was taken from James Joyce’s book Finnegans Wake.

According to Campbell the monomyth contains 3 stages, with 17 subsections. Not all journeys contain all sections and no two adventures are the same, yet the hero’s adventure follows a surprisingly similar pattern. The 3 stages are 1. A call to seek out some kind of adventure. 2. A trial or initiatory period where the hero must face an obstacle or series of obstacles. 3. The return back home with that which you were seeking to find. This often repeats in a number of ways, with various steps being repeated, but this is the idea.

The 17 Steps Of The Heroes Adventure:

The Call:

advertisement - learn more
  1. The call to adventure
  2. Refusal of the call
  3. Supernatural aid
  4. Crossing the threshold
  5. Belly of the whale

The Initiation:

  1. The road of trials
  2. The meeting with the goddess
  3. Woman as temptress
  4. Atonement with the father
  5. Apotheosis
  6. The ultimate boon

The Return:

  1. Refusal of the return
  2. The magic flight
  3. Rescue from without
  4. The crossing of the return threshold
  5. Master of two worlds
  6. Freedom to live

When you look to Hollywood movies and best selling fiction books they all follow the same pattern. Star Wars writer, George Lucas, was a friend of Joseph Campbell and famously said that without Campbell there would have been no Star Wars.

Star Wars

If you take Star Wars, it is the perfect example of the Hero’s Journey:

The Call: Luke Skywalker is living a mundane existence, and then while cleaning R2D2 he is shown a holographic recording seeking help from Princess Leia.

The Initiation: Obi-Wan becomes a mentor to Luke, and teaches him to “use the force”. Along the way he meets Han Solo, Chewbacca and other unsuspecting helpers until he completes his apprentice (which he does not know is taking place). Finally after much fighting, Luke is able to rescue Princess Leia and destroy the death star.

The Return: Then he returns home a new man where Leia awards Luke with medals for his heroism.

The Matrix

The Matrix is another example.

The Call: Thomas Anderson is fed up with life at a dead end job and knows there is more to his existence. He has a dream in which his computer types “follow the white rabbit” when someone comes to buy illegal computer programmes from him they ask him to join them on a night out. He declines, but when one of the group turns, she has a tattoo of a white rabbit, so he decides to follow.

The Initiation: Thomas Anderson becomes his computer alias Neo. He meets Trinity, and later Morpheus and is offered to be shown the truth in the form of the red pill (truth) or blue pill (fantasy). He opts for the truth pill and is initiated into a mysterious world where reality as he knew it is actually a computer programme. He gets to download multiple skills, thinks he is The One, but then realises he is not The One. Morpheus gets taken by the agents and he decides to save him.

The Return: Upon trying to save Morpheus he realises he is The One, saves him and defeats the agents. This is him returning with the realisation he is The One, although the return and initiation cross over a little.

This is the same structure you see in Harry Potter, The Wizard Of Oz, Alice In Wonderland, The Alchemist and just about every story based movie there is.

But how is this helpful?

This is the same story we can use as a metaphorical representation of who and where we are in our lives.

If you think life is meaningless and mundane, this means you should be on the lookout for synchronicities and clues of how to break free.

If you have just had a strong urge to go and do something very far removed from your comfort zone that has the potential to change your circumstances, then you probably should.

If you are stuck in a painful situation that seems to have no end, this means you are in an initiation. Being in an initiation does not guarantee you will pass “the test” but at some point you will be given an opportunity to break a cycle or take an opportunity.

If you have just been through an ordeal and conquered your inner (and sometimes outer) demons, bask in the glory, but remember there was 9 Star Wars movies, 4 Matrix movies and 8 Harry Potter books. Your Heroes Adventure may have many chapters, so strap in and try to enjoy the journey.

Much love, Luke.

On Taking Life Too Seriously

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Much of the time in life, we allow ourselves to take situations VERY seriously. This will sometimes turn pain into suffering, or prolong the challenges we face for growth. It also stops us from truly finding peace in life.

  • Reflect On:

    Do you feel a constant sense of anxiety in your life? Underlying everything? Where do you notice you take life or situations too seriously? What do you do to begin connecting back to self, and taking life less seriously?

Do you go through life with constant angst? A feeling deep down that there is always a little bit of stress or a little bit of worry? I’ve been through this. And in some ways, I thought it would never go away. But I focused on self awareness and living in the heart enough to kiss those days goodbye.

We can sure take life too seriously at times can’t we? I mean it’s fair. We have stresses in life that we get caught up in, we go, go, go, go, and often forget to take a moment to breathe. In Western culture, it’s all about obsessing over goals and getting there and telling ourselves sotries about what life will be like when we do finally get there… but what often happens to us when we live this way? We step into unconsciousness. We stop taking time to FEEL.

I want to help us remember to be STILL with this.

Various experiences and events have taken place in my life that have challenged some of my deepest ideals, belief systems and concepts that I felt were a part of me. This has gone on and occurred in my entire 11 year journey of truly changing myself. Whether it had to do with the work I do, friends, the world, relationships or big decisions in life, many things were challenged. It has truly been an incredible ride.

We sometimes might think “when will all the change and ‘chaos’ end?” A good question indeed, but isn’t this what we are here for at this time? To truly look at ourselves, look at all that we hold onto and all that we define our reality with. Literally everything! If you are feeling like you are the only one out there going through this stuff and feel like everything is backwards -that things are constantly being challenged, know that what you are experiencing is perfect, and we must remember to have fun with it!

Not Just A Human Experience

We are not here at this time to simply have ‘a human experience,’ we are here to evolve the human experience. It’s different! Stop looking at the past to tell us what to do, how we should move forward, and what ‘the greats’ did in our past to figure things out. We are not in that time, and the zeitgeist of our time now is not to simply exist but to be present as we deeply evolve the way of life on this planet.

We hear a lot “but we’re human, just embrace that!” That’s all fine, but what does that mean? What is a human? How should we be? Does being human mean accepting the world as it is? Are we capable of more? Can we redefine what it means to be human and what life should look like? Why do we give up so easily on dreaming big about these things?

I used to accept MANY limitations about myself and what I could do. But eventually, I was faced with the chance to let all that go, and reimagine what was possible. Even when everyone told me I was crazy and I couldn’t do what I was trying to do, I used my connection to self and consciousness to create it. Because I believed I was capable of more, and so is everyone else. This is how Collective Evolution, the site your on, came to be.

Embracing Change

After experiencing the many deep questions and challenges I have thus far, overcoming them and moving forward, I have one very special thing that I have reminded myself about over and over and truly understand to a deep level. We are here to play and evolve! None of what we are experiencing is as serious as we think!!

The mind and ego can make things very real, very dramatic, very frightening. I know! But the highest aspect of who we are is always clear, always neutral, and always sharing with us exactly what we need to hear because IT IS US! We are not the mind or the stories it creates that makes things so serious. They are there because that is our challenge. To go beyond the mind and the stories it creates -so we can experience this sensorial world and remember who we truly are (click to listen to my podcast on this topic.)

So let’s remember, whether it’s life choices, relationships, friends, work, family, sports, or everyday events, know that it’s just an experience! We can spend our whole lives always caught up in the drama and the intensity, saying “oh my gosh things are so tough, the world is so crazy, my life is upside down, and I’m so busy!” but where does this lead us? This is a question we must ask ourselves.

If we remain caught up in these perceptions, repetitive patterns of mind, we will continue to miss out on the entire journey we are on because we are lost and caught up in the mind. We perpetuate our so called “suffering” when we make things serious and make them a big deal. When we can see it for what it is, we allow the emotions to subside, allow back in our full potential and know how to take action forward. This is called finding true peace.

I’m not talking about simply accepting things and saying “well get over it” or “that’s how it is, so deal with it.” No. I’m talking about truly seeing things for what they are. Seeing why we color something in a particular way. Seeing the belief system behind why something is good or bad or right or wrong or even why it’s serious!

I promise you, behind every strong emotion, every serious situation, there is a belief system that makes it that way. One that is held in the mind and made real by the mind. But the mind is not YOU! See the story! Let it go and just play! You will find much peace and joy in flowing through your experience in this way.
