Topic Universe within
Its amazing how inspiration and insight can come out of the blue- how one thing can inspire a thought that expands ones understanding and then multiple sources confirm and continue to develop that thought. Such is the case with this energy guide. I was in a place of feeling frustrated, feeling that life is a massive ball of chaos and that nothing works the way I want it to. I began to talk to the Universe and ask for guidance as I do when I feel overwhelmed by life (funny that at times I forget to just ask for daily guidance and am reminded when things begin to fall apart- maybe one day I will learn to be proactive). Anyway I asked for guidance and I was directed to notice a place that was within me. It was a small place that I know and am familiar with, but that I truly did not understand. It is tiny like the size of a head of a pin- barely noticeable unless I focus on it. Its the place some call intuition, some call the solar plexus, some think of as the place within where God dwells. All of these are true but the nature and my understanding of this place was deepened and expanded in my asking for guidance. As I was drawn to notice and feel that place within me suddenly the thought of how this place is no different than the head of a pin that all of our universe came from. I was shown how this place appears so small that it seems impossible that all of everything that ever was or will be is contained in this place- but yet I knew it was true. The universe was birthed not only outside as scientists talk about the big bang but is also being birthed within each living thing daily. We have the potential of a big bang within ourselves daily.
This was more than just what these words can convey- its more than a thought and to understand the feeling of this idea means to understand how limited our beliefs of ourselves and our surroundings have been. Even in our most expanded thoughts we can barely grasp the vastness of what is within this pinpoint spot in ourselves and in all of creation. I was in awe of what I felt. Its like as I focused on that spot I was led to step into it and when I stepped into it the expansiveness surrounded me and I was in the middle of what looked like chaos but so vast it was like the universe itself. Events and things swirled around me- some of it I could understand and somethings were so indescribable I could not make sense of them like I could not see all of the potential- my brain could not take it all in. The thought came to me that I could explore this tiny area in me for a lifetime, for many lifetimes and never grow tired or bored of what lies within this tiny spot within me. Everything I could ever imagine was there, all the potential of everything- overwhelming in a way that filled me with a sense of hope and possibility. I thought that just the knowledge of this inner place was answer enough for what I felt- I could go to this place and imagine all that could be, and would be, and see it all whirling around. Even just being in this place made me feel better like even in feeling stuck I was never truly stick- it was all in process of creation and just was waiting to be brought forward into the physical when I decided or more appropriately resonated with what would be next.
However more information continued to come. First through a Show and then through a book. I was so struck by the chaos of this place- it was like the chaos that scientists talk about as being present as our universe was birthed. Nothing made much sense and everything seemed to be packed in with no sense of order. Then as I watched a tv program and read a book the purpose of our minds in this process became clear to me. In the book I was reading as well as in a science based show I had been watching they talked about how the human brain is programmed to find pattern. We organize chaos into pattern- and can see these patterns in what seems like a mass of confusion. We are skilled at this and made to do it. Suddenly that place within me made more sense. I know that the way we see patterns is not by trying to see them but rather by stepping back and letting things pop out to us. I think of those magic pictures, the ones where you have to step back and soften your eyes and suddenly an image pops out in 3-D. This works the same. Have you ever known anyone who can not see the magic pictures? They are trying too hard to see in the usual way or to see what they think it should look like. they are trying to use their eyes as they would everyday and not just relax and let the shape emerge. To see these images it takes practice for some- its not their natural state- its hard to relinquish control. For others it may come more naturally. I was one who needed practice- I used to get so upset I could not see them. To see the possibilities of what the universe contained within each of us has for us it takes the same kind of skill- the ability to step back and soften your eyes, to relinquish control and thoughts of what you think you should see inorder to let the images emerge. This in and of itself can take a good deal of time. For some this phase of even being able to see the possibilities contained within can take years or a lifetime, for others this may come more naturally. You will know you are seeing all that is contained within this place when what you see feels expansive- like your soul is coming home.
We are also built to create and manifest and the tendency when we see this place of possibility is to force what we see into being- but things do not work that way through force and will. Many of us lack patience and we see or have a throught of what could be and before we truly examine and understand it we try to push forward saying ” yes I want that” . Only to find that perhaps we needed to develop the idea and understand what we were manifesting more thoroughly. To pull creation from this place and into material form we need to work with divine or perfect force, then life flows and we flow with it with greater ease. It means understanding the true nature of things and being in alignment with God’s will. To understand what is meant to be and what is in alignment with our souls. For many of us this is hard to feel- how do we know what is in alignment? What if we are wrong? Our tendency to plow ahead and create without understanding has lead us to some painful experiences. There can be anxiety around this but there needent be. Those things that appear as images when you soften your eyes and release your mind, the things that make your soul feel expanded are the things that are in alignment with divine or perfect force. To know this you need to take time to fully understand and see all aspects of the images that emerge. This process itself can take time. To just fully understanding what is in our highest good as opposed to what others tell us we should do, or what we think we need can again take years or a lifetime. I am led to point out that it is important to spend time in this place- to explore that place within and to see all that is there- all the emerges and to fully understand and see what emerges from all angles before pushing to make it manifest. This is where the masters have said it is important to spend time in silence going within ones self- this is the place they have gone to- and it is so vast that it takes time to understand it and to develop the ability to see the images that dwell within. These are all positive potentials- everything that we can be and have, all that we are capable of doing. Our wildest dreams pale in comparison to what potential is revealed in this place.
I am urged to remind us and encourage us all to spend the time in this place daily- getting to know it, getting to know the images within there, all the potentials and when you think you know the possibilities continue to look because they are even more vast and more great than what you have seen. When finally an image, a possibility calls to you, when you feel that it is indeed time then and only then do you call it to become- with all the belief that it is what is meant to be and it is truth. Until we know what this feels like our job is to continue to explore. We will know when the time for creation comes- the feeling will be unmistakable to us- but we can only know it by spending the time in this inner universe. It is important to note that this is the promise made to all of mankind that we are children of a God who provides for us with endless abundance- he planted the seeds of all of the universe within us. In this tiny place within each of us all of the universe resides- and with this as truth, we know for sure there can be no lack- how can a creature that contains all of the universe ever really lack anything? We only have believed we can lack and therefore called that to ourselves. By shifting this belief and spending time daily in the vastness of this inner universe where all is contained we shift our belief from that of a reality where lack can exist to a reality where everything is right there for us, within us. This again does not happen over night- spending time in this place, seeing all that is within this place, is how we know we can not lack anything. The outer world may challenge this belief and when it does our job is to go withing and know what lies within us all- everything that ever was is right there always and over time if we focus on this we will know this as our absolute and only truth.
Our job is to spend the time within this place- to learn to first feel and know where this pinpoint place is, to be able to see that even though it seems small that we can enter that place and then soften our eyes and begin to see all that exists within. As we explore this place over time we will begin to see the images that make our souls feel free and that feel like truth- first becoming familiar with what truth feels like and then finally to call those things into our physical reality. Easy words to say but its a long journey worth taking. It is not taken with exterior helps- its is a personal journey each of us can choose to take or not take. Doing this and committing to this is the key to satisfying the feeling we may have that we are meant to do something or that we are missing something- that feeling is a call to know ourselves and our truth, our creative and limitless perfect power. Not ego power but true power as exemplified by masters throughout the ages. They followed this path within- unlocked the universe within themselves and what appeared as miracles were made manifest- and all the while they told us we are capable of the same- its all there within each and every one of us- if we choose to know it and believe it.
Until next time enjoy exploring the vastness of potential within.
