I’d like to invite you to join me this week to prove to yourself a few important points when you’re in the SOS mindset of someone come and help me- get this off the ground -understand my kids – control my partners behavior- find my soul mate-put more money in the bank- save me from my dry as a desert life- or- keep me on top of the game or make me #1 etc. etc. ad-infinitum!
Whatever it is if you’re looking to get rescued – you don’t need someone to come fix you, or understand you, whoop you into shape or remove your pain- you need an upgrade to your Spiritual Operating System.
I write about gratitude a lot because it’s such a key component of co-creation I believe it should be taught in schools! I mean honestly a dose of gratitude is like shouting ABRA CA DABRA to the universe and watching the world go from grey to Technicolor.
The thing is it’s not the first thing one thinks about when you feel stuck because you’ve snuck in a peek at someone else’s success, or their fab life that doesn’t look at all like yours (yet). BAM all of a sudden you go from an abundant mindset to the scarcity one, staring at the gaping maw of an endless timeline between the goal you set and the getting there part.
This happens to all of us. It’s actually one of my favorite parts when working with my small group of coaching clients who are already very successful influencers, or well on their way to manifesting big dreams of serving their unique gifts to the world, and I can tell you this happens to the best of ‘em.
Every once in a while during the process of shifting between worlds, when you still have one foot in the past and one in the world that you’re in process of co-creating, you might fall asleep at the wheel and cry SOS!
So how do you test your Spiritual Operating System to ensure that it’s functioning at its optimum best? Compare your internal moods and dialog when you’ve fallen prey to spiritual narcolepsy vs when you are in the co-creative flow of manifesting what you’re calling in.
Here is a way to test it.
If you feel contracted, controlling, competitive, better than, entitled, arrogant, resentful, and see the world as moving parts that you need to manipulate and accumulate so you have more than others, your SOS might be up for repair. If you are running on fear, perfectionism, attachment, obsession, comparisons, judgment, and chasing the special arrival date of happiness, your SOS definitely needs a tune up.
The result of this thinking and feeling will be that you’ll tune into a frequency of scarcity and limitation and you will manifest more of the same. You will experience a virtual reality that will reflect all that back to you. The universe is perfect – Spirit doesn’t take sides.. just listens to the repetitive reinforced stories we tell and serves them right back up to us in a tangible form we can’t possibly miss.
If you can manage to wake yourself up by focusing on being grateful for every experience, every step, every failure, every win, every moment , every breath, every bite, every smile, every heartache, every single thing you infuse with gratitude comes alive tenfold.
Gratitude sparks the life of openness, inspiration, creativity, selflessness, joy, awe, reverence, compassion, empathy and love… lots of that, oh and success too- whatever your definition. Thank You is the magic key to a well- oiled Spiritual Operating System.
Bless your losses, and bless your wounded self that was taught to believe there isn’t enough to go around, that you might not be enough. Bless the ambitions you’re driven to pursue in service to the highest good, bless all the shadowy parts you don’t want to admit you have hiding in the dark places in your heart too. Bless your need to love and be loved and to make a difference and bless everything and be grateful for everything and you will stop fighting and all of a sudden begin to know the kind of curiosity about life that leads to miracles.
Love to hear how you have experienced both of these states of mind. Gratitude is also an amazing way to kick-start your intuition too.
( PS if you’ve taken my basic oracle card course join me for Level 2 and be an oracle card reading ROCK STAR fueled on gratitude, grace and Spirit!)
Love you so much!
