Ease is knocking, let it in.
Of all the things I could be feeling right now surely ease is the least appropriate. There is, after all, a palpable acceleration of, well . . . everything! As a collective consciousness, we are in the middle of what could be described as an intense healing crisis.
From having worked with lots of people and participating in thousands of profound healing crises I know how they go and what they require – vigilance, courage, strength, skill, stillness, intuition, forbearance, trust.
Ease is not even close to the top of the list,
or at least that is what I thought.
Over the last year, a new element has come into the unfolding process with the people I work with and in my process too. Yes, you guessed it – ease. It has to do with, and try not to roll your eyes when I say this, manifestation.
Two years ago, I got serious about manifestation. It became clear to me that changing the world started with changing my own world. Manifestation grounded everything in very tangible responses and took it away from philosophical conceptual ideas.
I could imagine world peace, I could visualise it, I could sing nice songs about it but it was very hard for me to know, in a measurable way, if all my imagining and singing was helping world peace happen.
On the other hand, attempting to manifest specific tangible things in my life gave me direct feedback on how I was doing with that process. The thing I was aiming to manifest either showed up or it didn’t, and for as long as it didn’t I could keep fine-tuning my process.
For 18 months I didn’t really get anywhere at least not on the outside. The things I tried to manifest didn’t show up which was quite disheartening as I normally make progress when I put my mind to something. It is only in the last six months that I have begun to make any headway.
Living In The End
One of the key ingredients for manifestation is feeling what it would be like to be the person who has manifested the thing they want to manifest.
So if you want to be a millionaire, for example, it would be imagining what it would feel like to be the person you would be if you had a million dollars in the bank, and then focusing on feeling that now, focusing on being that person now.
That all sounds lovely but as I went through the process I had to face all the reasons why I wasn’t the person I was focused on being. It meant facing the difficult truth – You don’t get what you want, you get who you are.
It has all been hard work and I think that is why ease was so difficult for me.
We all have lots of conditioning that gets in the way when it comes to manifestation. It can be hard to get back to our essence because we are conditioned to look outside ourselves to an external God / Universe / All That Is, the name doesn’t really matter but the dynamic of externalising our generative power can be tricky to get around.
I often default back to babies when I’m trying to get some perspective on how the Mystery might relate to me.
There is a lot of ease when it comes to how babies manifest their needs and wants. They don’t have to do anything, the people around them just want to give to them.
There is no effort involved on the baby’s part. We respond to their pure being. We just want to give to them.
Somewhere, I remember that, I remember things coming easily because I too was once a baby.
All of which sounds great but in practice, it didn’t go so well. I noticed a pattern of resistance to each new growth spurt. Simple things became complicated. Long delays ensued. I always received what I intended in the end but the process felt unnecessarily tortuous. So more refinement and examination was required.
I could see that ease was not something I was used to. I hadn’t manifested things like a baby since, well . . . since I was a baby. Yet ease kept coming up as an important part of the process.
When I would feel into the person I was when I was manifesting the things I wanted to manifest, the overriding quality in my system was ease.
In the gap between who I was and who I was moving into being was discomfort.
Initially, I thought the discomfort was because it was new. But no, there was something, else something deeper.
I realised I associated ease with vulnerability.
Babies are great little manifestors but they are also very vulnerable. I realised there was a concern that if things were easy it would leave me very vulnerable.
I had to walk myself through the current reality I am in and how it is different from the past. I am not a baby anymore. I am not vulnerable in the way I was when I was a baby.
There was also the pressure of cultural conditioning that nothing of value comes easily and that everything worth having required hard work, with an emphasis on hard.
That was easier to shift because as part of the collective healing crisis we are all involved in it is easier to see that kind of thinking for what it is, a handy bit of indoctrination to produce good little workers.
So what about you?
This isn’t unique to me. The advent of ease is showing up in the people I work with for the last year too.
In the world, it looks like things are getting harder but behind the scenes, the counterbalancing energy of ease has been pouring in.
Has ease been entering your life behind the scenes?
Would you like it to?
If you would, begin to look for it.
I think you will be surprised to see how close to the surface it is.
There more you look for it, the more you will see it and once you start to see it, set about making a collection of the evidence you find.
The more evidence of ease you gather in your life, the more evidence of ease will appear in your life.
Let me know how you get on.
