Be Present With What You Know

Updated: Feb 11, 2020

Being present with your awareness isn't always easy- Here's my inner dialog.

There are the things I want to do, things I want to say, people, I want to contact.

But my awareness tells me otherwise. When I check-in and say, "Hey I should say this!" My awareness says, "no way, do not do that." "But, I really want to......" And it's heavy so very heavy. So very heavy.

I go back and forth. "But what if??" "No... don't do it. If you do this is what is going to be created." Feels into creation, sees everything it's going to create.

"But are you sure? Because what if it actually really is a contribution?"

"What if it could create ....."

The more my inner dialog tries to talk inner self into just doing it, the heavier and heavier the conversation becomes. And I retreat. And I really feel. "What will this create?" I let the creation play out in front of my very eyes and then I go....

"Are you sure? Cause what if I just do it anyway? I mean, what's the worst that can happen?" Oh... yeah exactly what I just saw. "I could just do it and see what happens?"

.......... Does it....... Exactly what you were aware of happens.

Well? Maybe next time I will listen??

Is this you? Is this the dialog you have in your head too? It's hard. And to be honest, sometimes I am so good at it and other times I really play in it, but now, I don't choose it. And if you're like me, it took me years to not choose it. Now I listen. I know. I allow myself to perceive what the choice is going to create and I don't just choose it anyway! In the past, sometimes I didn't, but mostly I did! I still choose it and exactly what I was aware of happened! But it does change. It will shift. Don't make yourself wrong for it if you do, do it. Acknowledge you shouldn't have, clear the energy and move on with your life. What would it take to always be aware of what your choices create? Still, ask myself this question often. Keep going. You got this. And if you understood what the crap I was talking about share this post. There's someone else in this world that needs to hear this. Much love. #consciousproblems #whenyouraware #whatelsecanichoose #whatwouldittake #dontdoit #beaware #stayaware #notmyproblem #lol
