What an exciting time for us all who have chosen to be embodied at this time. The newer and higher vibrations are coming through thick and fast, and we have the opportunity to totally live the life that we choose.
In the older vibrations, we were predominantly conditioned to lead our lives from our ego, focused fitting into external influences.
This, I realised, makes us victims of fear…. Do I fit into what is expected of me, can we survive, will I be safe, will I be loved, can I afford that, am I able to … these are some of the questions that inevitably follow fear and ego.
Working from ‘I AM’ unequivocally means that we are also working from a place of Love, Faith and Trust in ourselves. It says – I AM Empowered.
In 2008, during the economic crisis, in the midst of fears and worries about money and job security, I decided to resign from my then company. After the years I had put in, and I became bored and my passion waned. Many thought that I was insane, I was letting go of a good stable income during a tumultuous time. Many asked me if I’d had enough savings, if I knew what I was doing – basically projecting their fears onto me, in the name of caring.
But I stayed true to my ‘I AM’. Within a couple of weeks three companies offered me a position, with a 20% pay increase.
I learnt that living from Ego and Fear is about Struggle and Limitation. Struggle and Limitation zaps our energy, leaves us drained and tired.
Living – Being from I AM is about Ease and Attraction. Ease and Attraction buoys our energy, filling us with passion and enthusiasm.
Ego has been conditioned to made decisions and choices that benefit ourselves within the pack as a whole. It is both a survival and therefore a control mechanism – “I have to control my environment to survive, to meet the demands of all these labels that I have assumed and have been accorded to me”.
It’s time to step into a new way of Being – the I AM way – which is about consciously manifesting our reality through faith and flow; from a knowing that I AM instead of I have to; from honouring I AM instead of pleasing everyone else.
For example, recently, a client of mine went through a tough situation with her biological extended family. She had several ways of overcoming a problem – most of which removed her from a detrimental situation that had a negative impact on myself. This did not suit the needs of her extended family. When she shared her solution with her extended family, her uncle said that if she chose to act on that solution, she would lose the high regard that her extended family had for her. If she continued staying in that situation, she would keep their regard of her.
So she could choose to work from fear and placating her ego by pleasing their needs and be controlled by them, or to choose to embrace her ‘I AM’ and follow her soul’s path.
She chose to honour her ‘I AM’.
Sure, some members have dropped away. However, in doing so she drew closer those who resonate with she, in oneness of understanding, mutual respect and deep love.
I AM happier and I AM free.
I can just BE, with ease and grace.
I AM filled with energy and passion.
How wonderful it is to know that by Being and living from I AM, the veils of separation will indeed fall and there is only the Abundant Whole.
