Don’t Add Another Layer

Ever since I made the decision I was 100% responsible for what was showing up in my life, life has completely shifted for me. I am happier. I feel more empowered. I am a much more accomplished manifestor in many areas of my life. I am much more aligned with my Soul, and each choice I make about my business draws me closer and closer to living the life my Soul is longing to live.

Yet, I still have experiences that completely challenge me to stay at this level of thinking and belief.

Over the last five months, I have had an ongoing issue with my mortgage company. During the first several months, I dealt with it in what I would humbly call “a spiritual way.”

I visualized the results I wanted. When I had negative communication with them, I would spend 15 – 20 minutes with the practice of ho’oponopono before any further calls. I used all the clearing tools I had in my books. I asked for Angelic help.

And the situation kept getting worse.

I engaged some community resources to help with the issue, resources that have had significantly more experience with the banking industry. They reassured me what I was going through was “normal.” The banks are “out to get people,” etc. I didn’t want to go there but I will tell you, it was seductive to “go there” and get angry. And sometimes, yes, I did get angry.

Still, I came back to my spiritual view. I took a big picture view. I know I’m 100% responsible.

And it made not one whit of difference. The problem still loomed.

Ultimately, the issue with the mortgage company was resolved in a way that I didn’t want. In fact, you could even say, “they won,” in that what I felt was fair didn’t come to pass. They got what they want; I didn’t.

So, what’s a spiritually committed woman to do? How can I have this result and still hold on to the knowing that I am a creator? That I am 100% responsible for my life?

Here’s what I could have done: I could have gotten really angry. I could have spent weeks on end telling everyone and his or her brother about my story. How I was wronged. How they were wrong. I could launch letter writing campaigns to my senators, asking them to please, please look into this terrible crime that is being perpetrated on countless individuals. After all, if I don’t stand up for this, how will it ever be solved?

But where does that “get” me?

On the one hand, it would be a big demonstration of moving up Abraham’s Emotional Guidance Scale — all the way up to revenge from helplessness.

Choosing those actions would allow me to exercise my growing ability to express my true thoughts and feelings.

At the same time, however, I would miss the whole point of this particular opportunity and simply add another layer of “humanness” that covered up my connection with Source, with the learning my soul came here to do, that would knock me farther out of alignment with prosperity.

So, instead, I chose to dive deep into this experience.

I gave myself about 24 hours to be really angry. To b*tch and moan and decry the whole banking industry.

And then I took a breath. Each messy opportunity that shows up for us is an opportunity to remember more clearly who we are and why we are here on this glorious planet.

This opportunity showed me where I still have some remaining feelings of powerlessness, how I want to be treated, where I am still very attached to the form that something shows up in.

Seeing this, I’ve spent time in meditation and in clearing work making the specific choice to feel powerful. To feel heard. To release attachment to form.

I can already feel the benefits of this deeper alignment. I’ve had some amazing opportunities show up on my doorstep this last week and amazing interactions with colleagues. I would have been closed to all of that if I had chosen the other route. I would have added yet one more layer that blocks me from creating the prosperity I want in my life and business.

I’ll tell you, walking my talk isn’t always easy. However, it repeatedly proves to me the power of alignment. And, over and over it proves that spiritual practices aren’t just for when you want something specific. These practices are here to guide you through the messiness of life, helping to continue to ease you closer and closer to your Soul’s purpose, to your prosperous life.

  1. for me, Jennifer, your statement about “spiritual practices aren’t just for when you want something specific, but are here to guide us through the messiness of life” is so true. I shared that quote of yours on my FB page and am not surprised to see that the people who agree are the ones WITH a spiritual practice. Sometimes it is not til i am in the challenging times that I realize I’ve let my alignment with Spirit languish a little bit or be taken for granted. Thank you for sharing your deeper story!

    • I agree that it often takes a challenging time to recognize that we’re not tending our connection to Spirit.

      And, I’m also discovering the benefits that come from practicing Spirituality for Spirituality’s sake..as opposed to “work the law of attraction” or to achieve a specific outcome. My resistance is so much lower, I’m so much happier, and not surprisingly, life flows and manifests around me in a way that is completley aligned with the me I want to be.

      However, I still get trapped in forgetting to keep the connection going when life is flowing. Ah, human nature!
