Trigger Message: Your Morning Routine

So it’s morning, and you’re getting dressed for work. And who are you dressing for?

When you look in the mirror, what do you see?

Do you love the person looking back at you?

Are you wearing the clothes that make you feel amazing?

Do you like what is reflected back at you, or do you focus on the faults?

I know that until recently, it was standard for me to survey myself in the mirror, and immediately look for the stuff that made me feel flawed.

And if you too don’t love that reflection, you are not alone.  You’re actually part of the majority.  And our society was designed that way, to make you feel separate and freaky.

We are programmed to disapprove of ourselves.  It’s what fuels commerce in our Western society; after all, we consume more when we believe that the “fix” is in some new product, service, or group.

“From an early age women are exposed to statements and clichés, masked as advice, that dictate how we should look if we want to be accepted.”

That’s from the Dove site, which is doing all it can to break those old beliefs up and grind them under our feet.

But rejoice! As the world awakens, we are slowly breaking out of that cage.

From advertisers celebrating the diversity in the female form, to celebrities dissing Photoshop, we are learning that the difference between US and THEM…or ME and HER…really isn’t that disparate.

They have wrinkles!  Their clothes rip!  They bulge in places that we bulge too.  Magnificent!

These are just a couple of examples of how our world is changing to be more acceptable of the natural diversity inherent in humanity.

We don’t all have to be the same anymore! How refreshing is that?

The more that the media uses “real world” examples, with a variety of models in the various sizes, shapes and colors that humans have chosen as avatars, the faster we’ll shatter that ridiculous web of enslavement we’ve entrapped ourselves in all this time. (And no self-blame please, since you’re the both oppressor and the oppressed at once.)

Try taking a real look at yourself in the mirror from every angle; even those that show your bulges, wrinkles, freckles and moles.  Try finding five parts of you that you really like.  Focus on them.

Try choosing clothes that you feel like wearing, based on your mood, or maybe the weather, or perhaps because that was what was laying around and it felt easiest to put on. Focus on how you feel when you’re wearing them.

You’re awake now, and every day you’ll break further and further away from the powerlessness you were taught to believe was the real you. You are creating it, my friend, so make it good.

how well do you trust your eyes

Why Do You Trust Your Eyes So Much?

The biggest rift between those asleep and those awake, is the lack of visual proof of the non-physical. If you can’t see it with the naked eye, it doesn’t exist.

Let’s say I see a flash of light from the corner of my eye. Think about how many ways I can attempt to explain away its occurrence:

  • I look for light sources nearby that could cause a reflection
  • I look for pets or people moving in the room
  • I blame it on being tired

Yet once we count out physical causes, there remains a big void where an answer needs to be.

When the soul is ready to explore the unknown during an incarnation, then the mind will start inquiring if there isn’t more to life than the physical things we can see and touch.

And when that box is opened, all sorts of things fly out to be considered.  More occurrences happen for us to inquire about.  Synchronicity after synchronicity pops up and we start making the connection.

This is when we get excited, and begin sharing our experiences with friends.  And much of the time, that excitement is not shared whatsoever, because you’re sharing with a person who still needs a physical explanation for every occurrence.

Proof will require seeing something with the naked eye in order to substantiate its existence.  Otherwise, it doesn’t exist.

Is it a ghost?!
How many ghost-hunting shows are popular on TV?  It’s not real unless you catch it on camera, live!

Is it an angel?!
Since no one brought a camera to Lourdes, the appearance of Mother Mary was deemed mass hysteria.

Is it an alien?!
Two milliseconds of research on YouTube will bring you to a myriad of videos of grainy aliens and big-eyed beings gazing through dark windows.  Hoaxes aside, none that can be “proven,” of course.

 

Most folks vehemently deny the existence of ghosts, angels, and extraterrestrials, since if we can’t see it, it doesn’t exist.

Oh, except for electricity…and wind…and atomic particles.  We make exceptions for things like that.

I find it humorous, and tragic, that we believe our eyes are the most acute of senses; the input mechanism we trust more than any other, despite the fact that 6 out of 10 people need glasses just to function in their day.

If you find yourself in that group that wants visual confirmation of the existence of the non-physical, then you are not alone.  I am in there too, very often, because the programming runs deep in our society.

Yet there is a huge amount of powerful energy floating around you; energy you can tap into at anytime, should you believe that you can.

Do you believe that you can?
