Guiding Thought

Freely release patterns, habits, and thoughts that inhibit Freedom! Allow your thoughts and feelings to transform through remembrance of Freedom through Love! You were born with everything you need to be free in Love. Allow Love to lead you. Trust Love and surrender to its wisdom.

Reflection / Contemplation

Yesterday, I remembered. Today, through remembrance, I transform.

Several years ago, I wrote this:

…[m]y 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…

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.

The article is titled, “Transformation is Easy When You Step Into Something that IS“, and I feel like it goes hand in hand with yesterday’s reflection and today’s Guiding Thought.

The idea from yesterday is that I/you/we are ALWAYS who we ARE. We are always our Self. We are always our Self of LOVE. But the mind forgets this, and so we need to direct the mind back to remembering by inviting it to think in ways that affirm the Truth of our Self.

When we think/talk about releasing patterns, habits, and thoughts, these are constructs of the mind, which bind it to untrue ideas about who we are–ideas which inhibit Freedom (because when we are our Self, we are Free).

The idea of transformation is not about transforming your True Self. It’s about transforming your mind.

Who you are IS. You cannot be other than who you ARE. You Are your Self of Love. Always.

But you can think otherwise. And changing the thinking can require the time and effort of releasing the patterns, habits, and thoughts that get in the way, and it can require transforming untrue thoughts to True thoughts. This is the only reason it’s a “process” or a “journey”: the mind is getting in the way of your remembering–and being–who you ARE; the mind needs to be lead step by step into the Truth of YOU. You are already Infinite Love, Infinite Intelligence, Infinite Being. Infinity is a big concept for the little mind.

But this is why transformation can also be easy, and can happen “in the blink of an eye”. As soon as the mind gets it, you’re there. Because you already are there.

Making My Mind Remember –Journey of Freedom 02.12.11

Copyright Tam Black 2015
Designed for susanwithpearls.com

Welcome to round 2! Thank you for being here. I wish for you waterfalls of Divine Flow, beautiful insights, and Joy on the Journey! With this round, the pronouns change from “I” to “you” (see this page for detailed explanation).

Guiding Thought

Love is your natural state; in Love you remember who you truly are. Remember your holiness, your innocence, and your infinity. Love enlightens your mind and lifts your heart. Be buoyant and expansive! Be aware of your Self as Infinite Love, unbounded and free, thoroughly loving and lovable.

Reflection / Contemplation

I am in my natural state.

How can I not be?

Thus, I am in Love.

This is unchanging. I am always in my natural state.

Right?

So if this is correct–and it makes sense to me, that it is–why then do I not seem to remember who I truly am?

If I am always Love, and if in Love I remember who I truly am…why don’t I? Or why does it seem as though I don’t?

Or do I? Then, if I do, this–who I am right here right now– is me being myself remembering Love.

Either I am or I’m not. There really isn’t another option, right?

If I am, then I am as I am in my natural state, in Love. And I am pretty sure I am.

Why does there feel like there is a disconnect then, between being and remembering?

If I am all the time, then I am even when I forget.

If I forget who I am, I am still who I am, even though I’ve forgotten.

So what do I do, when I’ve forgotten? I tell myself–I direct my mind— to remember.

If my mind has forgotten, it’s up to me to bring it back to remembering.

How do I do that?

I invite myself to be my Self, by reminding myself of who I AM. And since I am only inviting the Truth, how can I deny that invitation?

How do I do that?

Well, I am directing my mind, right? So I just think. I think what I want my mind to think, which is:

Love enlightens your mind and lifts your heart.
Be buoyant and expansive!
Be aware of your Self as Infinite Love, unbounded and free, thoroughly loving and lovable.

And you know what happens?

I feel Love flow through me.
I am buoyant and expansive
My mind is now aware of my SELF–of who I am!
I remember.

Affirm the Truth –Journey of Freedom 02.12.10

Guiding Thought

I focus my mind and thoughts on my Inner Divine Self—my Self of Peace, my Self of Joy, my Self of Infinite Being and Intelligence. When I am aware of my Inner Divine Self, I radiate these qualities, expressing the freedom of Being in Life!

Reflection / Contemplation

I am my Self of Peace.

I am my Self of Joy.

I am my Self of Infinite Being.

I am my Self of Infinite Intelligence.

I am my Inner Divine Self.

I am the freedom of Being.

This is how I focus my mind and thoughts on my Inner Divine Self–repetition of the Truth of Being.

Affirming the Truth of my Self, I can’t but help feeling these qualities within me, feeling myself as these qualities, feeling these qualities radiate from me.

Too often, people affirm lies about themselves.

“I’m sick”.

“I’m worried”.

“I’m broke”.

Affirming lies about yourself, you can’t help but feel these qualities within you, as you.

The Truth is:

You are Whole, Holy, Healthy. You may be experiencing illness, or feeling illness, but that is not who or what you are. Instead of saying “I’m sick”, say, “I feel sick” or “this body is feeling certain symptoms of discomfort”. Then affirm, “I am Whole, Holy, Healthy”.

Everyone and everything is in exactly the right place at the right time. You are Divine Intelligence Knowing perfect synchronicity and Divine Order. Instead say, “I may feel worried, but I am Divine Presence which operates with Divine Perfection in all times, in all of Life”.

 Divine Abundance generates all of Life. Life is Infinite and Eternal. There is never any shortage, always enough of All for All. Instead of affirming lack and limitation, say, “I am the infinite abundance of the universe”. “All of Life operates in Infinite Abundance, including me.”

Affirm the Truth.

Replace lies you (and others) tell yourself with the Truth.

Repeat. Repeat. Repeat. Cleanse your mind of Lies. Fill it with the Truth of Being.

Praise and Thank Life –Journey of Freedom 02.12.09

Copyright Tam Black 2015
Designed for susanwithpearls.com

Guiding Thought

Trusting Life allows the flow of Divine energy to come in and through me to bless All. I step gracefully into expansive, unlimited, harmonious, Divine being. I praise and thank Life for supporting me, and I relax in its process.

Reflection / Contemplation

Oh it’s those first two words, “Trusting Life”!

Everything about the Guiding Thought is contingent on those two words. And everything about the Guiding Thought is true, and correct for me when I can say, “YES. I trust Life”.

I know this because over the past 8 months, I have had many, many opportunities to trust Life, to “go with the flow”, to surrender to the situation at hand and trust that “everything will work out”.

I have not merely given trusting Life lip service: trying to trust, hoping/wishing/praying with a superficial “please, please, please let it work out“. I have been truly placing my faith in Life, and in God.

Here are some phrases that I have used as affirmations, to keep my mind focused on trusting Life, and knowing things will work out:

  • I am Harmony.
  • I am the infinite, unconquerable presence; I am the open door for Its Divine Presence and intelligence to govern my outer-world in wondrous perfection.
  • I am my I AM Presence. I Know what I am doing, and I am the Presence doing it.

Please feel free to use these: I can tell you from experience that these phrases help you help yourself make everything right (divinely perfect!). During the past 8 months, I have been fried and frazzled, and uncertain, and at the edge. And every time, everything has worked out perfectly.

But I had to trust deeply, truly.

And now, yes, there are still things going on, but not nearly as intensely as the past 8 months.

But more importantly, the practice that I have had trusting during the past 8 months laid the foundation for me to be at the point where I Know the Truth of the rest of the Guiding Thought…

  • Divine energy does come in and through me to bless All! I am doing this regularly now. Not enough, yet (maybe I should re-read yesterday’s post??), but the momentum is building.
  • I step gracefully into expansive, unlimited, harmonious, Divine beingThis is happening. Still: slowly, it’s a trickle, but I can feel it and see it, as my life begins anew, trusting Life, co-creating with Divine Being.
  • I praise and thank Life for supporting me, and I relax in its process. Oh yes, yes, I do. Still: I cannot confirm that I am totally relaxing in the process (I still have some “worry/doubt”–but these seem small, comparatively); I cannot confirm that I am 100% trusting Life to support me (and this realization–which just now happened– gives me something to work on), but I am most certainly trusting Life to support me more than I ever have before, and I am able to genuinely praise and thank Life.

Guided Tour –Journey of Freedom 02.12.08

Copyright Tam Black 2015 Designed for susanwithpearls.com

Guiding Thought

My connection with the Infinite Source of Love is and always has been enough. Love loves me always, everywhere. Assured in love, I am perfectly lovable and perfectly loving with all people in all situations.

Reflection / Contemplation

Many people internalize the “I’m not good enough” playlist.

  • “I can’t do anything right”
  • “I’m so stupid”
  • “It’s all my fault”
  • “I wish I were more >fill in the blank< (like him/her, pretty/handsome, successful, etc.)”

Today’s Guiding Thought reminds us that all of that self-talk is simply false. The self-talk only serves the little-mind, the ego, the selfish personality by keeping you alienated from the Truth of your Self. The little-mind wants to prohibit your growth, wants you to trust it instead of your Self, wants you to stay dependent on it.

Have you ever thought about why that might be? Why might the little-self want to prevent YOU from emerging?

  • Maybe it’s afraid.
  • Maybe it doesn’t know how to grow and is afraid of the unknown.
  • Maybe it is just too comfortable where it’s at.
  • Maybe it fears that if YOU grow, you will abandon it.

Today’s Guiding Thought addresses these things gently, slowly, so as not to startle the little mind, to make it run away and hide.

First, the Guiding Thought does not come at you directly, or with a lot of force. It does not ask you to just jump to the idea I am enough. It leads you to this idea through your connection with Infinite Source. My connection with the Infinite Source of Love is and always has been enough. 

In fact, that first sentence is a bit open-ended. You might even ask yourself “enough for what?” And that’s a step in the right direction! When you ask yourself “enough for what?”, the little mind has accepted the premise of being good enough, and is now exploring all of the possible ways that you are good enough. The first sentence bypasses the self talk, and leads you to believing the Truth about yourself, through your connection with Infinite Source.

Every one’s little mind has a different comfort level with accepting the fact of being enough. And many people’s little mind might have a fear-reaction to some degree to that first sentence. So the next thing the Guiding Thought does is to enfold that fear into Love. Love loves me always, everywhere. Now, no matter what the reaction is, no matter what the fear or denial or doubt, Love confirms Its presence, acceptance, and loving embrace of all of that, regardless. The fear has nowhere to go, and why would it want to? What it really wants is Love anyway, so it might as well be with the love that is being given.

Then, finally, the Guiding Thought brings it all home:

It sets assurance up as an undisputed premise. The little mind must accept being assured–especially since it has just been told that Love loves it always.

With that assurance, the Guiding Thought tells you why you are good enough. You are perfectly lovable. not just lovable. perfectly lovable. And on some level, your little mind believes this, and accepts this, because it has just been assured in Love.

Then there’s the stretch. You’ve received the information that your connection with Source means you’re good enough. You’ve been assured that you are Loved. The connection has been made that being good enough means you’re perfectly lovable.

…and then you have to think about being lovable with all people in all situations. It’s not enough to think it, you have to act it. What does it mean to be lovable with people and in all situations? How many of us can say we can do that right now with any degree of competency?

I know this is where I got hung up on today’s Guiding Thought. I went back to the not good enough playlist, specifically this song: “I wish I were more lovable with all people in all situations”.

And the process started again.

I recognized that my connection with Source means I am good enough… that I am loved always, all ways… and that I am perfectly lovable…even when I don’t act (or can’t even imagine) being lovable with people in all situations.

This is the guided tour. My higher mind leads me where my lower mind wants to go, but cannot do it by itself.

Fullness –Journey of Freedom 02.12.07

Copyright Tam Black 2015 Designed for susanwithpearls.com

Guiding Thought

I allow my physical body to experience itself fully as Light and Love. My physical body embodies Light; I am an expanded body of Light and Sound. I move as Light, perceive as Light, behave as Light—I am everywhere—permeating, expanding, unifying, and healing. All things are possible.

Reflection / Contemplation

At first I got hung up on the word “fully”. I thought, “I don’t think I can do that–allow my body to experience itself fully as Light and Love”.

Because when I think fully, I take that as far as I can go: Om, Purnamadah Purnamidam; Purnat Purnamudachyate Purnasya Purnamadaya; Purnameva Vashishyate. This is Full; that is Full. From Fullness comes Fullness.  Take Fullness from Fullness, Fullness remains. 

Fullness is serious. Experiencing Fullness is way beyond what I think I am capable of.

So I was hung up.

But OMGoodness! it didn’t last long.

All of the sudden, for just a short moment, I felt myself expand with Light into the fields, into the trees, into the birds, into the sunlight.

“I am ALL THIS”, I thought…I felt…I was.

But then, of course, when I tried to hold on to it, it was gone. My brain took over again, my emotions were “mine” again.

But for that moment, I Knew: All things are possible (because I AM All things).

We Embody the Light –Journey of Freedom 02.12.06

Copyright Tam Black 2015
Designed for susanwithpearls.com

Guiding Thought

Through my physical body, I bring Divine Light and Love to the physical universe. I heal unresolved issues through loving thoughts, words, and emotions, and I become lighter and brighter. I bring light to all I have denied and heal my past-present-future NOW. Every day I am lighter and lighter!

Reflection / Contemplation

It’s no longer enough to meditate on Light, to visualize Light, to strive toward the Light.

No. It’s no longer enough.

We must be the Light.

We must bring the Light into our physical form, as living substance, and become that living substance of Light.

Asato ma Sat gamaya: Lead me from Untruth (darkness) to Truth (Light).

Yet…

The distance between untruth and Truth is exactly none: there is no distance. Truth is here. Truth is now. We are Truth. We are Light.

Say it with me. “I am Truth”. “I am Light”. In this moment you are. You see? There is no distance. You are here. You are Truth. You are Light.

Be it. Say it frequently. This is who you are. I am Truth. I am Light.

As long as you know this, you no longer need to be lead, nor to seek, nor to find. You have arrived; you have found.

It is when you forget that there is distance that must be crossed. It is when you forget, that you need to seek, that you need to be lead. It is when you forget that you need to remember.

Know the Truth of your Being: you are Truth. You are Light.
