Linda Adsetts and The Group are here with their weekly Go for the Joy message. Enjoy!
Today I was reflecting on my good life. Today I was in gratitude. The weather helped with its gentle summer breezes and the warmth of sun, which had me driving Lily, my VW Convertible Bug, top down with the tunes cranked!
Some days it is very easy to sit in gratitude. Some days it fills me up with so much joy that I am bubbling over with it. Other days, even though nothing is very different, the gratitude isn’t so easy to come by.
Of course I realize that my life is good. Of course I know that I am fortunate-but some days it doesn’t feel so joyful. What changes? What in me is unavailable to me that I don’t sing with joy?
Life happens, but it doesn’t happen without our input. I am the creator that gets to choose and sometimes I get in my own way. My input is less than stellar-my words are of gratitude but I don’t feel it.
I remember a time when a friend commented how well I had handled a difficult situation with someone. I thanked her and I told her that I would be much happier when my inside matched my outside. That has been my journey over the past fifteen years. I want the emotions inside to match my outside persona.
I learned to be a good girl, so to speak. I was not Miss Goody Two Shoes but I became adept at making myself likable. I learned to not rock the boat. That can serve someone well in some situations and not so well in others.
My outside persona learned to be likeable but inside my emotions could be raging with anger or drowning in sorrow. This isn’t so good for a healthy body or mind.
Today I have become better at expressing my emotions and my desires. I have come a long way. My inside is matching my outside more and more and my joyful moments are increasing.
But still, there are those days when I feel a certain sadness-something so familiar to me that I can easily slide into it, like an old friend beckoning me into an embrace.
That is when, after a bit of wallowing I begin to ask myself questions. What is this?
Can I change it? If so, how do I change it? (Access Consciousness questions)
I then proceed to POD, POC anything that doesn’t allow me to change it. (Again an Access tool)
I no longer wallow for very long in my sadness. This is one old friend that I no longer choose to be with for very long. I know that there is a way into joy and with a little patience and a little POD, POCing I can find my way there.
We all have something that sticks us. For some it is anger, for others it could be anxiety and for others it could be…well you know what sticks you! Often they are intertwined with other underlying emotions. We go to our “norm” and if we dare to do some questioning we discover what lies underneath or we don’t. As I have discovered we don’t always have to know exactly what it is. If I can get a feel of the energy of it then I can begin the process of clearing it.
What a journey it has been over the years and the last 3 years have been so much more than I had ever thought possible.
The Group has been encouraging joy as the path for close to ten years. I am finally beginning to see the possibility of a more constant state of joy.
It is your natural way of being-for each of you. And that is your journey on planet earth for the many lifetimes that you have had. This is not your first go round, nor your second or third or fourth. You would be amazed at how often you have played upon her. It takes a long time to experience the fullness of being human and to begin to remember who you be. Time is accelerating now and for many of you your awakening is occurring much more quickly as you allow yourselves to reflect on that which is your life and what you know instinctively to be true about yourselves. No matter what you have been told by others who have judged you and tried to make you wrong-you know that there is a truth inside of you that includes your being different from others. You are you and they are they. You don’t have to make them wrong in order to be right. You just have to be you.
It is in the magnificence of you and others like you, that the world will be transformed. You are the ones who consider something more; something different and the new ones coming in will refuse with an intensity that can be unnerving to some, to be contracted by the norm. They and you will shift your planet into a new way of being and the others will either exit, follow by default or get on the bandwagon with you.
It is all good and how it turns out, the details are yet to be known, but how it turns out will be so much more than many of you can imagine. The joy will be the biggest part of the equation…that we can promise you.
Meanwhile dear ones, just be you. Be the fullness of you in all of your weirdness’s, differences, quirks and joy. You are enough.
