Each moment that you shift out of auto-pilot and into awareness puts you in the presence of The Divine. This is not a thing to be grasped, but rather a moment to enjoy as it is experienced. Moments of awareness pass as life happens and one's attention is drawn away. Allow this moment to be and to slip away, knowing that it is effortless to reclaim awareness.
Grasping at awareness causes it to flee faster! Allow awareness to come and go effortlessly. You will find that awareness happens more often than non-awareness. You can rejoice and be glad in this!
When it slips away, you can notice and immediately re-awaken to awareness.
Often, we see you attempting to berate yourself for being human and falling into old patterns. We have no such judgment of you. Allow yourself freedom from judgment as well. Judgment merely bogs you down even further into non-awareness. Judgment is a trap created by a false illusion of control.
We encourage you to notice your thoughts and feelings. It is this awareness that grants you power to change, power to grow, and the willingness to receive blessings.
Notice the thoughts you say to yourself. Those are just thoughts . . . until they become reality. While they reside as thoughts, you have power over them and the ability to change your perceptions and your world. Reinforcing those thoughts repeatedly, makes those thoughts harden like cement in your reality. While they are thoughts, they are wisps of energy. Like steam from a cup of tea or coffee, they can vanish if you let them. Unlike steam from a warm beverage, thoughts solidify with accumulated use.
We encourage you to notice how you speak to yourself. Are you encouraging as you would to a child who is just learning to walk or to read? Or, are you critical and harsh?
If you find yourself being critical and harsh, recognize that this, too is a false illusion of control. You think that if you berate yourself enough, you will perform "better" or excel in what ever you attempt. Has that tactic ever worked?
Release this need to be in control. Release it to Divine Source. In it's place, allow yourself to re-awaken and listen to Divine Guidance. As you listen to Divine Guidance, notice yourself in the Light of this Love. A new and better you can emerge from this perspective.
Divine Presence awaits your awakening - awaits with Love, Joy, and Hope-filled Anticipation. And in each new moment, that Presences awaits your re-awakening!
