One of the most difficult aspects of the shift that is underway is the releasing of old belief systems. A major hindrance to the unfolding vision for the new future is disbelief that it will actually come about. Disbelief resides in individual hearts and in humanity’s collective heart. It’s like acid eating away at the edges of the totality of the wonder that is occurring.
Despite humankind’s relatively short time on the planet, human beings carry a level of defeat, depression, and distrust in each other that is disproportionate to life experience. This is because they also have cellular memory of past life experiences. The result can feel like pushing a boulder up a steep incline only to see it roll back down again; the exhaustion and sense of defeat can be overwhelming.
In culture after culture, generation after generation, this belief that life has always been and will always be a certain way has been perpetuated. It has become woven into a collective doubt in our ability to create something better.
During this transition, it is important for you all to recognize this and become vigilant in your practices to break this pattern. This is old, deeply rutted energy that has been building for many centuries, but its voice is only as powerful as the amount of attention you give it.
The easiest way to break this old pattern is to redirect your energy. Focus on your vision of a new world pattern. In meditation, either sitting or standing, ask your heart to reveal the world as it believes it should be manifested. Spend time listening and opening to what it has to say, as if you were holding up a precious jewel and examining its many facets. As various aspects are revealed, notice the emotions, inner language, and energetic stance you take toward it.
This is the moment where old patterns can be released, their hold on you broken. Just notice, without anger, judgment, blame, or other hook-like energies, what your heart is saying. Then ask yourself, “Do I want to continue to see life unfold as it is, or do I wish to see the birth of this vision in my heart here on earth?” There is no need to entertain the doubts that might arise. Just answer the question simply and honestly. Is the vision in your heart calling you?
Stay present to the vision and allow it to fill you. Some days will be easier than others. Let the energy it creates within you grow. It will shift the negative belief system without any other effort if you do this on a regular basis.
Soon enough you will feel a new voice, with a new confidence, as if you were watching a beautiful plant mature within you.
Another help is to decrease the amount of access you give to external voices of doubt and fear and increase your time with kindred spirits who share or support your vision. This will feed new possibilities for your vision, just as elements of your vision will feed theirs.
Be kind to yourself in this process. You are breaking a very old, very established pattern.
Try creating a short mantra you can recite over and over, such “I believe the unbelievable,” or “My vision is my reality,” or another phrase that connects you to your inner vision and helps you stand more grounded within it.
Each day your new belief system prevails you create more room for your vision to grow, both inside yourself and across the earth. Be courageous. We are there beside you. We are sending energy to support you. You are the light of the new world.
