When Barbara over at Me, My Magnificent Self asked me to join in on her February Awakening Challenge, I harmoniously said: yes! Two years ago many of us WordPress bloggers contributed in writing posts for her free E-book: A Selection of True Awakening Experiences, and we are back, working in harmony to put together another collection of our continued, transformative awakening experiences. This fits in nicely with sharing my transformational journey through Butterfly Journal, and here is the prompt for month 9:
By noticing the interconnectedness of all things, we have opened our eyes to the impact all our actions, including our thoughts, emotions, energy, and intentions, can have on everyone and everything we interact with. This wisdom can deepen our awareness even more leading to inner harmony and balance, and to harmonious relationships.
For the ninth month, develop your awareness further to bring harmony into your life. Are there still inner imbalances that you need to work through, or are there disharmonious relationships in your life? Contemplate on allowing patience and compassion to bring harmony to you internally and externally.
One thing that has greatly helped me on my own journey in the past 9+ months has been practicing allowing. I think of it more as the art of allowing because is has in turn allowed me to create amazing things not just recently, but throughout my life. However, since last Spring I have applied the art of allowing to relationships.
Last Spring I took the Caroline Myss Sacred Contracts & Archetype Consulting Course, through which I discovered within myself, within my own psyche, aspects or archetypes of myself that I was denying or un-allowing to develop and express because they were archetypes I associated with some close relations. Because they more often expressed the shadow aspects of these archetypes, I disliked being around these relations, which only made me feel like interactions with them were unharmonious.
As I began to work on embracing our common archetypes, 1) I had to allow those parts of me (light and shadow) their deserved acknowledgement and empowerment, 2) I had to see that my relations, even though they may normally express the shadow aspects of these archetypes, do have the light aspect as well, 3) I needed to awaken, “see”, and acknowledge when they express those light attributes, and 4) if I allow those light aspects to be expressed within myself, they would have the opportunity to match my vibration and express their light attributes instead of the shadow ones.
This is basically the Law of Attraction. If I am aware of my state of being and allow myself to be and express the light (aka focus on the positive) in contrast to and with acknowledgement of the shadow, others will only interact with me if they match that vibration of harmony. Through my own light of awareness, I help others literally “lighten up!” If they are in a low vibration state, and I do not match them, which would create a disharmonious interaction, we either do not meet to interact or it just dissolves.
Awakening to the awareness that we are all interconnected and truly the creators of our realities opens endless doors of harmonious creation and manifestation. We become ever more aware of how we affect our own lives as well as how our attitude, thoughts, intentions, and actions can have an impact on everyone and everything around us and beyond.
