Perceptions are Objective

Slide1

Perceptions are an objective viewpoint.

Perceptions are another way of judging and they are completely objective. They are a portion of the way we see without knowing the total picture, and can happen with miscommunications or mis-hearing. They are your opinion of another person or a situation, and they are not necessarily the whole truth, or even part of the truth.

Our perceptions are all dependent on us. The experiences you have been through, how others have treated you and/or how you treat others can play a role in our perceptions. Perceptions can also be a way we deal with issues when they are presented to us. Since others act like mirrors, we may be perceiving they are feeling or thinking something we would think or feel, before taking the time to discover the truth of another person. We all have our own truths, and many times we misuse them in our perceptions of others. Our truths are not necessarily another person’s truths, which we need to keep in mind in our relationships.

Perceptions are also like assumptions. You are assuming something about someone else without truly attempting to understand that person or the situation. Your viewpoint is then objective and biased and not influenced by anything except your thoughts and feelings. This is an important concept to grasp when interacting with others in any fashion, as how do you truly know another’s mind, when you haven’t taken the time to get to know someone?

Oftentimes, I also run into people who judge, assume and perceive others in a certain way because they don’t even comprehend their own minds enough to realize they are making these assumptions or judgements. Another way to look at it is like gossip. You hear something from someone and then talk about it, without knowing anything about what actually happened. Therefore, when we perceive something about someone, it is so very important to either leave it be, and go back to our own business, or if you are so moved, to ask the other person about how they are feeling. Remember, there is your truth, the other person’s truth, and somewhere in the middle the whole truth.

Our truths are a direct result of our life journey.

If you are not a trusting person, perhaps because someone hurt you in the past by breaking your trust, you may now not trust anyone, and presume people are untrustworthy.  Or perhaps if you think someone is not trustworthy, it is because you yourself have judged, gossiped and/or said something in a poor fashion about another, and you are projecting your feelings onto another person.  This is all how we perceive the world, and cultivate our own inner truth. By looking at how we judge, perceive and gossip about others will provide us profound lessons if we are willing to do the work, helping uncover our truths and transform them.

It’s more important to understand ourselves first and foremost over jumping to conclusions about someone else. Your intuition may be telling you something about another, as well, yet we still need to use this information to first understand ourselves. Learning to understand our own inner compass, our intuition, is also an important step for our spiritual growth. Our intuition will provide us messages for our own good, yet, this doesn’t give you the right to then say something derogatory about another.  Intuition comes from Divine Light, and it is intended to help us grow and learn. Understanding how you perceive another will bring you more knowledge and wisdom about yourself, helping you to ascend and transform. Therefore, it’s another way we can determine what life lessons we are needing. Plus, it allows us to be more understanding, compassionate, kind and loving to ourselves and others.  And, in the end, this brings more peace and light into the world.

If you are ready to begin your spiritual journey, or need more guidance on the one you’ve already started, I’d be de-LIGHT-ed to help you.  Please contact me for an appointment.

Discernment

Slide1

Discernment is about recognizing and pursuing which of the endless and infinite possibilities are for your highest good.

In the Divine realm, there are endless and infinite possibilities. When we recognize this and are open to receiving them, we must also understand not all of these possibilities are best for our growth. Discernment is the tool we need to strengthen and use to help us understand our true life path and choose the wisest opportunities for our soul’s growth. Discernment is a feeling, and those feelings come from our intuition, which is our Higher Soul talking to us, guiding us to the best decisions. It’s removing the ego, and allowing our inner light being to connect with our consciousness to hear the messages. It’s removing guilt, shame, fear and anger to comprehend what’s in our best interests, and not those of others. Discernment is using our knowledge, wisdom, strength, courage and power to make the best choice for our passions, gifts and life journey.

Discernment includes being aware of those individuals in our life who are loving and supporting us, no matter what.  It is understanding who is helping us with true integrity.  Discernment allows us to determine who is guiding us in our best interests, who is loyal, who is truthful and who is showing compassion.  It then helps us remove anyone who is not for our highest good. This helps us surround ourselves with the right people for our journey.

Discernment also helps us recognize the lessons we are meant to learn, versus lessons of others.  It keeps us from wrapping ourselves up in other people’s issues and dramas. It provides us the necessary information to help those who are seeking out our help, versus choosing to use us in some way. This in turn helps us focus on ourselves, while helping others, which is very important in growing, learning and gaining the wisdom we need to continue on our path.

In our lives we will continually need to use discernment as we change, as those around us change and as new people and opportunities present themselves. The more we use it, the easier it will become to call upon it without effort. Discernment removes the ego and allows our souls to guide us, and this is always in our best interests. We are able to sift through those endless possibilities, infinite opportunities and people to choose the ones which resonate with our current vibration. Discernment is helping us remove judgement, using our intuition to move more fully into our spiritual path.

You have the courage, strength & power within you to do whatever it is you desire.  

Slide1

Once you have discovered your true life path, you will begin to realize you have within you everything you need to create it. You have courage to step out of your comfort zone, and what you believed was a stable, but perhaps unfulfilling life. Many of us follow the paths of our parents or friends, and find we are not truly happy doing what is deemed “proper” by others. The courage turns into strength, allowing you to take the necessary steps to realize your life dreams.  It may be scary, as it is stepping into the unknown, but it is also exciting as you begin to feel that joy welling up within you. Finally, your true power is revealed. This power is who you are at your core.  It is the gifts and wisdom you had all along springing forth like a delighted child full of creativity and ideas, wonder and energy. Your power source is your higher self and it sings for joy as you have touched it and are now following your own internal compass.

Once you realize your internal power is your divine, unique gift, that which is meant to help you in your life and to share with others, it cultivates more courage and increases your strength to move into your next phase, your new beginning and your true life path. The universe will then send you the opportunities to help you do what you need to do. It will send ideas, people, situations and resources. Note, it may not come all at once, as universe recognizes it takes time to build and will provide you with what you can handle at any given time. But, you will begin to notice how everything and everyone around you begins to be your support, your encourager and your guides. The situations and opportunities will multiple as you more fully accept this assignment your soul already agreed to do before this human life. Others may not understand, and it is not for them to understand.  It is for you to understand, grasp and fully express as your true self. This enlightening and awakening is heralded and it is celebrated by the Divine, helping you to continue to use your inner power to continue your joyful, loving and wondrous life work.

ESPAVO dear Ones! Espavo = I recognize the power within you and encourage you do use it for your highest good and that of the world!

Namaste!
