There is potential in every moment. We just forget about it a lot.
Every moment can create another moment. Yeah – I know you’ve heard about this before. Manifesting. All that jazz.
But it’s true.
We get caught up in how we feel about what’s happening around us. We fight with what we see – our fears convince us to default to wrestle mode.
But we can accept what we see without applying vitriolic feeling to it.
We can maintain focus on the potential our energy holds.
I like to consider Virgoan analysis – the inherent need Virgo has to determine what has value and what doesn’t. It really helps you cut the shit – err, the stuff that isn’t for you.
It’s enough, though, to consider that something is occurring in front of us that is not for us – in the sense that it’s not for our energy, to get pulled into this situation – to pour ourselves into a thing. Specifically, our judgements of the thing.
Let me give you an example:
Yesterday, I received something in my mailbox from the oligarch system. It’s a flyer, on heavy card-stock, advertising a politicalized initiative.
I don’t subscribe to this initiative. In the sense that I don’t advocate for it. Or ask for these kinds of mailings. So I decide, “I’m going to ask the post office clerk if she can stop these kinds of documents from going into my mailbox.”
So I ask and am really kindly told (really – she was super nice about my request) that she can’t stop them from being put in my mailbox. That employees are told they have to put them in everyone’s mail box. To which I thought,
OK, I can get upset. Or I can have no opinion of it. And go to the health food store as planned.
I can choose to not pour my energy into how I feel about this overreach. Accept that they are doing it, without directing any intense feeling toward it. And if I do that, I maintain ownership of my energy, and the potential that lives in however I choose to direct it.
What I pour my energy into, I create more of. That’s it – that’s all.
So I can choose not to belong to the collective energy form that advocates for oligarch initiatives. And I can choose not to belong to the collective energy form that asserts rage at oligarch initiatives like these.
How do I do this? How is it possible?
By spending my energy feeling rage-full about oligarch mail box advertisements, then noticing that it feels fucked up & draining, and quickly jumping out of that whirlpool, realizing I can do 2 things at once: not want this thing in my mailbox and not form a vitriolic judgement of it being in my mailbox – with My Energy.
Full disclosure – I don’t pretend to not have an opinion. I have one – a firm one – about these kinds of megalithic conglomerate-endorsing initiatives.
However, I can be a firm no, while actively choosing to maintain my energy and make the most of the present moment’s potential to create my future experiences.
There’s many worlds to live in these days. Does that sound crazy? Likely is to some. But the truth is, we create our world and our experiences based on our interpretations of what we see every day, which are informed by our past experiences.
If we’re feeling triggered by past hurts, we might see a world filled with people who refuse to question anything as being one that is actively against us;
If we’re feeling optimistic, we might see the potential in not allowing autocratic movements to direct our mental focus towards fear-based outcomes.
There’s a lot to be unsure of – that’s for sure. But there’s also a lot to learn and power to re-claim.
The reclamation of our personal power starts from the inside – working on strengthening our ability to maintain our energetic sovereignty.
To NOT be swayed by mail outs and rage born of long ago, and seeds of doubt that inspire debilitating shame over our mistakes and blunders and the wrong turns we take when we are human.
You can, in fact, choose to not take the bait.
The bait is everywhere. So it is difficult. But once you realize, “Hey – this could be a big ole piece of bait…” you start to make a full time job of coveting and nurturing the power you hold – the unwavering potential in every moment that comes from YOUR energy. YOUR focus.
Life’s pretty neat when you start to become aware of this stuff.
