Havi Brooks’ caper of conscious entry states, “Enter as you wish to be in it; exit as you wish to continue”. Or, as my friend Brad has stated another way: “Don’t be a commercial actor, if what you really want is to be on the silver screen”. In business I have heard this idea expressed as “dress for the level of success that you want to have.” At a very base level, the idea “Fake it ‘til you make it” says the same thing.
The point of all of these is to embody qualities that express what you hope to become, and in taking on these qualities, you change and actually become that which you desire to be, that which you project.
I have been working with this (these) idea(s) pretty intensely the past few weeks…but really, my whole life. Because my life is about stepping into being and expressing more of who I am– easily just being myself and sharing that for the good of all. And so as I discover myself (or discover my Self) it is up to me to figure out how to bring that discovery into the world—to express it, to share it.
Part one is the discovery. Part two the expression.
This has been one of the most difficult and ongoing lessons of my entire life. It is scary. It is vulnerable. It is powerful. Marianne Williamson puts it this way, “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.” And we are powerful. Humans have such potential!
Discovery, though, uncovers something that is already there. It is not creation; it is not “manifesting” something out of thin air that you hope to be. It is something that you are, that now seeks/desires expression. Your consciousness of who you are has caught up with itself in physical reality. Or maybe physical reality has caught up with consciousness…
Either way the responsibility falls on the individual to express it. To be it. Figure out how to transform the experience of life to be congruent with a new understanding of the Self.
There are two ways to go about it: the first is expressed in the first paragraph above: act as though you are what you want to be. In doing this, you teach your consciousness to align with those qualities. But the other way is to accept, in consciousness, who you are. Just accept yourself as that which you know you are: your powerful self, your love, your infinity. Transform your mind to align with that self. As Einstein said, “Everything is energy and that’s all there is to it. Match the frequency of the reality you want and you cannot help but get that reality. It can be no other way. This is not philosophy. This is physics.” Just choose. Be who you know you are.
