Reinventing ourselves comes from within. It does help to have a planetary shift similar the one we had on the winter solstice December 21, 2012 which coincided with the end of the Mayan calendar. 2018 was all about building and laying down a new foundation. The upcoming planetary shift in 2019 is all about making things tangible and material, so if you have a goal or dream, this will be the year to start making steps to transform your dream into reality.
What I found necessary was to reclaim the parts of myself that I had lost, given away, or given up on. I suggest you do the same. The Fusion Modality in the Resonance Repatterning® method retrieves this lost quality. It will free you to be more authentically who YOU are out in the world.
In a workshop called, Owning My Purpose, one of the exercises we did was to inquire about what we did, or how we survived our family dynamics growing up. One of the things I discovered that I did to survive, to be acceptable, and to get my needs met was to find out what the rules are and follow them. I then saw that even to this day, I find out what the rules are and live within the parameters of them, even if I do not agree with them, or even if have to settle. Growing up, I became the good girl, nice and pleasing. I found out what others needed and did whatever it took to make them happy–harmony at all cost!
The next exercise in this workshop was to distinguished what qualities we left behind to survive, like our uniqueness, our creativity, our curiosity, adventure, etc. I discovered that I left behind, my inner desires, my true authentic playful nature, my full self-expression, my dignity, and most importantly my values.
We then talked about what we are passionate about, like making a difference, nature, animals, helping adopted people find their biological parents, etc. I discovered I have many passions! The four I spoke about were my passion to free people from their past and move forward to fulfill their dream; to take risks, be adventurous and playful; to be in an environment where there are wide-open spaces; and to be free to be myself.
From there, in the quietness of my inner sanctuary I created and later declared and claimed my purpose. I stood up in front of the whole group — and on camera to boot — owned my purpose. My purpose is to inspire and empower others’ greatness to live extraordinary lives! What I realized is that I am already doing that. Energy surged throughout my whole being and a rush of emotion filled my eyes. It was total validation of what I have been all about for many years.
The group was then asked to pick a project to fulfill within six months that would allow us to tangibly experience our purpose and move us into unhesitating action. I could not imagine taking on yet another project. So, I chose one I had yet to complete: publishing my first book, What Would Love Do Right Now? A Guide to Living an Extraordinary Life. I created a structure to fulfill my goal with support from those who love and care about me. The paperback was published December 2017 by my own company which you can visit at www.ExtraordinaryOutcomesPublishing.com. The eBook came out in May of 2018 and got to #1 on Amazon the first day. It was exciting!
As you move forward reinventing yourself, be sure you are gentle with yourself and get the support you need from those who love and care about you. It will be easier than you think! If I can do it, YOU can do it too! Have fun!
As a Resonance Repatterner and student of metaphysics, I discovered that to live a purpose-filled life, I have to ask consciously of anything: What is this for, what do I want to come of this?
Eventually, we will all know how difficult it is to answer questions regarding the purposefulness of life because at some pivotal point during the growing cycle of our human consciousness, we will all ask ‘what is a better way to live?’. Regardless of any difficulty, inability or unwillingness to delve deep to find answers to these questions, it remains that it is the coherent or non-coherent focus we give to any aspect of living that will determine its purpose; consciously or unconsciously.
This seems on the surface like an enormous task, self-indulgent navel gazing with no room to enjoy living, and persistently engaged in introspection. But it is more than just a daunting task. For this question of ‘what is it for?’ can move us toward satisfying our inherent yearning to express ourselves coherently from our core. Asking ‘what do I want to come of this?’ as a means to living a purpose-filled life, is not only limited to the grand perspective of what constitutes a purpose-filled existence on earth, but includes the seemingly prosaic ‘what do I want to come from saying ‘hello’ to Joe Smith on the street?’.
I recently had a ‘reading’ with a wonderfully talented psychic who looked at my impulse to come to earth ‘this time around.’ She related, through her symbolic word-pictures, that from on high, so to speak, and with a teenage angel perspective, I saw that my soon-to-be biological father, who in a larger context I already knew and loved, was very sad and confused on earth, so I jet-propelled myself into physical existence on a rescue mission. Without a ‘by your leave’ of wiser counsel, I simply made up my mind this was the right thing to do and took off, only to discover very quickly the foolhardiness of my choice.
Asking whether this story is true or not is unimportant, since the asking is merely a tactic of my mind to divert me away from what is helpful. For what is helpful is how it relates to my actions now. It symbolically demonstrates that my decision, to act from a place of love to save someone from themselves, I made up, and did so from conclusions based on faulty perceptual beliefs which I was not aware of at the time. Consequently, the great important special purpose for my living on earth was a myth. (Where was Resonance Repatterning when I was a goofy teenage angel?)
As a Resonance Repatterning® practitioner, I cannot ignore this awareness, nor the data from hundreds of session notes, that it is the myths already conceived from the viewpoint of the observer mind that determines what we choose to see and experience with our time in a world. Further, researchers who study the holographic nature of our reality agree that it is the judging of a goal’s merits at the onset, and decisions based on them, that predetermine what happens in the outcome, before an event takes place.
However, there is no wrong way to live a life since, if we view it correctly, Life is a schoolroom. There are consequences, but everyone is given liberty to make decisions for their life. An infringement on any way of living comes when we do not honor and respect an individual’s ability to choose for themselves. At times, due to lack of comprehension, we include others unnecessarily in our life cycles, and dramas. However, infringing on the personal liberty to choose for oneself is the greatest hinderance to the enjoyment and freedom of creating a meaningful existence.
One guideline for living a purpose-filled life as we ask ‘what is it for?’ I cannot overemphasize. The love within us needs an outlet. Whether we believe in the idea that we are created beyond time and space, or whether we simply embrace the idea that we are a product of a physical mother and father does not matter. For love is a very important factor motivating humanity.
We are born of lovemaking so that we may love.
Releasing love from within, and extending it into some viable and pleasurable outlet, enriches beyond an individual, regardless of whether another agrees with the format of that self-expression or not.
How can we tell if we are living a life from love in the best and most meaningful way, since we have to do something with time once we find ourselves in a world.
We will experience a feeling of overwhelming compassion for ourself and humankind.
We will feel fully appreciated, and appreciative of the efforts of others.
The form of our chosen self-expression of love becomes a vehicle that expresses the love in us all, and we will recognize it as such.
We will impinge on no one, only carry the love inherent in us forward on to others.
We will congratulate ourselves, not with superficial ego aggrandizement, but in a genuine flow of gratitude for expressing what extends from our heart.
As our love flows, we will feel it return to us and ‘thank us’ for celebrating itself though us,
And, it will bring peace, satisfaction and contentment.
Now, no one can decide this, express it exactly, nor determine its value for any of us, for the love in us has a goal beyond us. It rejoices in the flow of itself, unhindered and unburdened by anything unlike itself that may try to restrict it.
(Restrictions come from impinging values that we do not personally determine. Values as to the rightness or wrongness of our chosen way of living. Those subtle innuendoes and judgements often encourage self-deprecation and belittlement, creating sore spots and woundings.)
However, it is not necessary to spend as much time as one would think healing wounds before we can express love in a meaningful way. Since we will discover that the capacity to fully hear our inner call to love, whatever its expression, will weave itself into the tapestry of our life, along with all personal hurts. The wounds and hurting created by infringement on personal rights can become the jewels and the nuggets in the tapestry, if carefully transformed by the process of forgiveness.
The jewels of our transformations offset and give brilliant contrast to the ordinary and similarity between two weavings. Unhealed, they appear as rips and holes in the fabric of our life, but transformed they brighten and enhance the dullness of similarity and sameness.
It is not necessary to think that the jewels and nuggets are essential to live a life of expressed love, but they do catch attention and draw the eye to their brilliance and what is possible.
What do I personally want to come of this life as I learn to correct my impulsive teenage angel goofiness: what is it now for? For me, a purpose-filled life is to discover the essence of life itself, the nature of love, and what is true and what is false. This positive purpose is a worthwhile pursuit for me since I have already experienced it breathing life into a flailing spirit, and I know that it has the potential to resuscitate my life further into heightened states of self-awareness.
Therefore, my pursuit of a truer purpose that will obtain for me a more heartfelt connection to the Principal of Life that created me relies upon an intrepid investigation. I know that if I have enough staying power to turn my fear of asking and looking into courage, I will be rewarded with remembering the forgotten song of my liberated spirit.
