Life is always provoking us to EXPAND past what we’ve always played out in the world. Through our relationships, interactions and just how life unravels and presents itself to us on a daily basis.
We can very easily fall victim to our circumstances at times. It’s important to remember that sometimes its simply because life is urging us to handle these situations, circumstances & events, whatever they may be, in a much more mature way than we have always played out in the past. With a willingness to evolve beyond what we’ve lived out and played out in our worlds.
Once we start doing this, it gives existence the opportunity to give us MORE.
It can reveal to us the disowned, unresolved parts of ourselves, more blind spots that we cannot see, more everything that we simply can’t reach, that will empower us to turn up in a greater way in the world.
More freed up energy, more radiance, more joy, more fulfilment and more of what we really yearn for at a soul level.
We cannot reach the unreachable though, if we are still coming from a place of immaturity.
Life won’t give us the next step if we keep on tripping ourselves up playing the same old patterns out. Over and over again, life calls us to step up, EVOLVE past what we would have reacted to, taken offence to, blamed, deflected, hidden from, denied - you name it.
Where are we immature?
Are we emotionally immature?
Most of us are, at a much deeper level than we may like to think of ourselves a lot of the time. Most of us are still running from our deeply wound emotional mechanisms we used as children to defend ourselves from the world. Defending our tender little hearts from hurt, closing off, repressing, making excuses as to why things may be playing out a certain way, just so we can cope. These may have served us at a certain time, but as we develop we didn’t outgrow them, and they may just be that - stories to keep us ‘safe’ in the now.
Again, not something we like to admit, but how’s your mind doing? How much ease or quietude do you have in the mental plane with life, especially when things are intense or in times of turbulence, high stress or conflict?
How do we handle situations in our day to day life, whatever the case may be…
Look out for it, it’s somewhere.
We all play immaturity out, but where is it?
Immature decision making a thing for you?
Jumping into something because of outside pressure, inner restlessness or frustration?
Doesn’t end well if it’s made from these places…
Do you catch yourself complaining & whinging about things?
Like a child?
Yup, can also be it!
Whats stopping you from EXPANDING?
Are you AFRAID of expansion? Another whole story just in that little inquiry…
If you don’t know where to expand, or what needs doing, or where the work is; Sit still for 5 minutes and think of the most uncomfortable place in your life…
Is it a relationship?
Is it a fallout with a friend or family member?
Is it an uncomfortable situation at work?
Is it an interaction that is crying out for you to act in a more mature way?
Is it saying sorry? ‘I fucked up and I’m really sorry’?
Sometimes saying sorry is the hardest thing, to admit we stuffed it all up. We, in this messy human form. We may feel that any admission or apology is a weakness, where as it’s the most vulnerable part of ourselves, and where our true strength can lay dormant.
Keeping ourselves defended in our own rigid point of view in any situation, is ultimately just defending our own bullshit.
We’re all different. These dynamics happen in all sorts of different ways, and thats the design of it. If there was a streamlined process to ‘fix’ all of our things, then where would the fun be? Where would the challenge be?
There wouldn’t, and we wouldn’t be able to expand & evolve through our unique situations.
Wherever there is not ease in your reality, look there.
Wherever there are people or situations prodding and provoking you, look there.
Look where the drama is in your life, look there.
Open to a resolution within it.
Find a way to resolve it in a peaceful way.
Rise above, expand, and you will find new paths of ease open up where there were none before, so you can walk free.
If we continually lean into the edges of our comfort zone and the most uncomfortable parts of ourselves - the places where we least want to go - we will find that our life expands deeper into abundance on all levels like never before.
