Daily Inspirational Message for May 31, 2013

dancelightsAnd those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music.
– Friedrich Nietzsche
 

When we are in tune with our own inner guidance and intuition, we often do things that don’t seem to make logical sense to ourselves, let alone others. It is only in retrospect that we may understand why we were suddenly hit with a sense of danger that helped us avoid an accident or some other nasty experience, or why we were suddenly struck with an impulse to go somewhere, talk to someone, sign up for something or try something new. Often, we never consciously realize why we were intuitively led to make some decision; we just know that the Universe is always magically guiding us to whatever we most want and need in the moment. Given a choice between living in a logical, reasonable way and experiencing the magic of synchronicity on a regular basis, I say go ahead and call me crazy: I’ll take the magic!

What you love is a sign from your higher self of what you are to do.
– Sanaya Roman
 

A lot of the angst of living in the modern world arises from the fact that we’ve all been trained to trust logic and reason more than our own hearts, guts and inner knowing. It is through our feelings that our higher selves are constantly guiding us to the paths that will lead us to true well-being and fulfillment, yet we are constantly talking ourselves out of following our hearts in favor of what we mentally believe to be ‘safe,’ possible, practical, logical and reasonable. We have only to look around us to see people living much bigger and more exciting lives than we are. The only thing those people have going on that we don’t is trust in their own heart’s desires and the great ideas that come to them, for this trust gives them the courage to follow the divine guidance they receive and realize their full potential. The more we bravely we follow our bliss, the bigger and more exciting our lives naturally get.

Often we take personally the slings and arrows of our ‘abusers’. But frequently we are merely the interchangeable pawns of their own neurotic dramas. Anyone else in your position would have received the same treatment. There is nothing especially noxious or negatively noteworthy about you.
– Brian L. Weiss
 

When I launched the new Kajama site, I got an interesting array of responses. Most people were wonderfully appreciative, kind, supportive and positive. A few, however, were totally outraged that the site no longer looked as they were used to it looking, and that some of the content was no longer free. As my personal reality is generally free of negativity, I was shocked and felt unfairly attacked by all of this. When I shared my struggles with a friend, she told me a story about a big online business that faced going under or charging a small fee that got the same sort of response: many who valued it signed right up, but some loudly complained. After meditating on all of this, I realized that the reason people were angry was because they were feeling fear: they love what we have to offer, and they didn’t want to lose it. They also believed that they couldn’t afford $5.00/month (which reflects a profound fear of lack), so they lashed out. All of this helped me to remember that the reactions we get from others have very little to do with us personally: how people treat us is about them, not us. Some people are simply flowing love and kindness, while others are flowing fear and negativity. If we pin how we feel on how others treat us, we’re in for an emotional roller coaster ride. If instead, we focus on continuing to flow love and positive energy ourselves and we don’t take others’ behavior personally, we’ll succeed in feeling as we want to feel.
