Journey with Awareness

Journey with Awareness

awareness

Awareness is the key to transformation. ~ Eckhart Tolle

Awareness involves both consciousness and cognizance. This includes being cognizant of our surroundings and the people coming into and leaving our life. The Universe will assist us in bringing people, teachers and experiences into our awareness so that we can learn, heal and grow from them.

For myself, I have noticed that certain people will come into my awareness at exactly the right time for me to receive a message. The message may not be directed specifically towards me, but I receive it loud and clear nonetheless. I can almost feel a switch being turned on and off enabling me to glean exactly what I need. I recognize these as opportunities for learning and growth for myself.

Let us not look back in anger, nor forward in fear, but around in awareness.
~ James Thurber

Songs on the radio, television commercials, and even upcoming events are worth paying attention to especially if you keep seeing or hearing about them repeatedly. Check in with yourself and assess if there is an underlying message or if you are intended to take it literally. Symbols are everywhere. Our perception assists us in our individual interpretation of these symbols. A symbol may mean one thing to an individual and something entirely different to another individual. Practicing discernment and what feels right to you is essential.

Awareness Exercise
Increase your awareness level by focusing and tuning in with each of your five senses. Spend time each day being cognizant of your surroundings. Make notes in your journal of your experiences as you are guided to do so.

What do you hear?
What do you see?
What do you taste?
What do you smell?
What do you feel?

As you become accustomed to paying attention, it will be easier to notice when you are not distracted. Silence your mind chatter and sit in quiet repose. Take note of the guidance you are receiving and the signs you are observing. Remember that these signs may be in the form of cloud formations, found in nature such as birds or butterflies, songs on the radio, overhead conversations, etc. Do not second-guess if you are actually receiving a sign. You may not understand the meaning of the sign at the moment you receive it. Simply acknowledge it, express your gratitude for it and you will understand the meaning of the sign when you are supposed to.

Journey into Consciousness YOUR Way

Copyright Caitlin Wilson 2013Once again, I’m guided to write about the importance of allowing yourself to enjoy your own personal journey into consciousness. I previously wrote about this in Honoring our OWN Journey. As a spiritual growth coach/teacher, I honor your choices, beliefs, opinions, and preferences. I encourage you to follow the path that resonates with you regarding your life and spiritual journey. Everyone has their own way of doing things, and this includes meditation and the numerous modalities associated with well-being. Your connection to Source, Spirit, the angels, and your guides is your connection. Allow yourself to practice discernment and study or practice what feels right to you personally. Read the books you are guided to read. Take the classes you are guided to take. Follow the path that you are guided to take. It’s nice to know what others are doing, but let this experience be your your own personal journey into consciousness. There is no “right” way or “wrong” way in spirituality – just YOUR way.

Honoring our OWN Journey

Copyright Caitlin Wilson 2013Recent experiences over the past year has allowed me the ability to really see everyone and everything as well as every experience through the eyes of love. Each one of us are at different places on our life journey, and we should never compare our intended life experiences to another person’s journey. Whether I am interacting with another individual or offering guidance to others, I love each person individually and “see” them where they are at that moment while recognizing that the choices they make are “right” for them. Who am I to say otherwise? By honoring who I am and the journey that we are each on, I have freed myself from the self-imposed restraints of those energetic shackles.

Shifting my own perception, I have freed myself from those self-imposed limitations and the outdated (old paradigm) way of thinking. As an intuitive medium, Reiki Master, spiritual teacher and author, I was able to find the peace and ability to be comfortable with who I am and how I work, specifically in regards to delivering messages in group settings. I feel like I am able to fully allow myself to release the fear of what other people will think or say about me or the work I do. I realize that I can’t please everyone, but I can please myself. Cue the music…can you hear the song playing now? The way I read, heal, teach, etc. is unique to me because I am unique, and I should not question it or compare myself or my journey to another.

In order to fully be at peace, allow yourself the opportunity to honor your own personal journey into consciousness. This is YOUR life to live…allow yourself  to live it!

Journey with Courage

courage quote

Having the courage to express your beliefs to others and not being afraid of what they might think involves faith and fortitude. Allowing yourself to be who you really are with all people requires that you stand in your power. Standing in your power simply means “owning” what you believe to be true. It definitely does take courage to be your authentic self and to emanate this power in your words and actions.

It takes courage to grow up and become who you really are. ~ e.e. Cummings

As I’ve stated before, there are two ways to view everything – through the eyes of love and through the eyes of fear. Love is a heart-spaced higher vibrational energy; whereas fear comprises every emotion that is not love, including worry, fear, doubt, regret, guilt, shame, frustration and so on. Choosing to stay in the heart-space and see every individual and experience through the Higher vibration of love is essential for our journey into consciousness.

We must all be the change we wish to see in the world. Continuing to remember that we are reflections of one another, let us have the courage to be who we are without fear of judgment. Ultimately, each one of us desires to love and to be loved. Acknowledge your fellow travelers as we each embark on our own adventure called life. Call upon Archangel Michael to assist you with accessing your courage and choose to consciously journey into consciousness with courage while releasing the fear.

Journey with Intentions

We are now two weeks into 2014. This year’s energy feels fresh and new. I can feel the change, movement, vibrancy and possibilities that this year holds. Can you feel it as well?

Copyright Caitlin Wilson 2013As I’ve stated many times, I don’t make resolutions. However, I do set intentions. My new year’s intentions are to stay grounded, focused, centered and present to continue to create and manifest opportunities and abundance in my life. I am allowing myself to be in the flow of creation; instead of inhibiting or restricting this flow with the linear time aspect and the need to know everything all of the time. Life is so much easier and takes pressure off of us when we allow ourselves to be rather than do.

I invite you to take a moment and write down your new year’s intentions. Be mindful of the energy behind these intentions – are they love based/coming from the heart-space or fear based/feeling of lack? One isn’t “good” or “bad” per se, just different energetic vibrations.

Remember to see the blessings within the challenges and enjoy life moment by moment while honoring all emotions and experiences along the way.
