I’ve written many times on this topic, but it seems to be something that needs to be vocalized and discussed. Life is always the master of inspiration. This is a personal plea for you to please, look in.
Look in the mirror. Look at yourself. Look in, look in, look in. Close your eyes. Look in, look in, look in.
My friend who has lived here in Bali for the past eight years or so told me that when the terrorist bombs happened here a few years back, the entire island came together and asked themselves the questions, “what did we do for this to happen?” “how did we create this?” “what have we done to attract this and what do we need to do now to heal and transform it?” It goes to show you the paradigm of their minds. Very different from the western world— where the emphasis of blame and fault is projected out vs. finding the cause and root within. I’m sharing this story with you so you have some perspective.
When you have the power within yourself to fulfill your own needs or ask the universe for help, it will come in via another source- not in a limited way of a fragmented reality. Stop projecting rubbish onto innocent bystanders. And by rubbish I mean all your unhealed past experiences that you may be bringing into the current moment.
Nobody likes to be hit with a ball of mud. It doesn’t feel good. It feels dirty. We’ve all got our own mud to deal with. Own your muddy projections and watch them shift. Do the work and the bowl of water will then become clear. In other words, own your shit. Please. Nobody’s going to wipe your butt for you. You’re not five years old anymore. You’re an adult now.
Maybe thats too real and diffiult to digest. I can say it in another way if you want me to.
I talk about these things cos well, it needs to be said. This was once a foreign concept to me too. Humans tend to sweep these topics under the rug, get embarrassed, shy away. Time to get over it. Do the work. Your soul is trying to wake up while your ego is throwing a hissy fit.
By no means am I saying I’m perfect. I’m human. I screw up. I have projections too. But I catch them when they come out. I know they’re mine- places within me that have yet to be healed that are surfacing for me to shed some truth and light onto the darkened less enlightened areas of me. All opportunities for growth and TRUTH. You have to be willing to change.
It’s ok. We’ve all got them. But we’re doing the work aren’t we, to clear the blockages of all that may be in the way. If I’ve ruffled your feathers or you’ve felt an internal heat arise within you while reading this, that’s a sign of your own projection. HEAL THAT. FAST. Cos it’s getting in the way of you being fully present in life and having real and authentic relationships with yourself and with the world. If you’re unphased than I haven’t triggered you.
Never waste a good trigger. I think Sean Corne said that. Triggers are meant to be opportunities for you to look within yourself and ask, Why do I feel this way? Why has this situation been created that made me lose my cool? My peace? My calm? My center? My ground? What is this external circumstance saying about my internal domain?
Own your projections. It’s not fair to you, the person or thing you’re throwing it at or even to the space around you. It doesn’t do any good, it only causes harm. The faster you own them, the faster they shift. It’s like Einstein said, No problem can be solved at the same level of consciousness it was created.
Own it, move it, transform it and ELEVATE YOUR AWARENESS. People will support you. But only if you step up and do the work. Nobody but you can do the untangling for you. OWN YOUR SHIT.
