Life does not have to be
"hard work" or "struggle".
Be conscious of
WHAT you are doing
and WHY you are doing it.
Are you willing to explore unknown territory in order to become who you truly are, by daring to ask yourself uncomfortable questions? I was once asked an intriguing question which I think many of us would like to explore.
"I have been on the journey of self-discovery most of my life; never taking status quo as the way. If there was a way to go upstream I have always found it....
...but recently I have realised that regardless of how hard I have tried, all these years, to direct my thoughts, my thoughts seem to have been directing me. If I look closely, my subconscious seems to be driven by fear and negativity; regardless of how much I try to focus on positivity.
Where do these negative thoughts originate from? How do I get rid of them?"
What caught my attention is the way the "drive" to be different is described and the battle between positive and negative thoughts, but also the result of that struggle - the subconscious mind being driven by fear...
I think many of us can relate to this and in order to answer the question I need to propose some of my thoughts about reality to you first.
We live in a physical reality where there is an equal amount of +/-, light/darkness, love/fear balancing as possibilities and probabilities waiting for our "awareness" to choose them from the infinite Quantum Field. The tricky part is that what our awareness "chooses" isn't always based on our thoughts and our "strong will", but rather on our true intention and deepest beliefs about ourselves and our reality.
We are beings made of vibrating energy, as is everything else in our Universe, so the only "thing" differentiating you from me or sand from water is the vibrational frequency of that energy. Every thought, emotion or thing has its own unique frequency. For example: Love is a higher frequency than fear.
So, what has that to do with our question?
Well, everything because how this "reality-creating-mechanism" works is - what you put out is what you get back - your frequency is mirrored back to you by the Quantum Field. And the Quantum Field does not make mistakes. It unconditionally reflects back to you a perfect match.
In other words, it is our innermost intentions that set the frequency of our being which is then perfectly matched by the Quantum Field and perceived by us as solid reality, things, relationships, circumstances, thoughts and feelings.
The "invitation" to negative thoughts comes from the "struggle" because struggle sets us in a frequency equal to negativity and worry, which summed up in one word is FEAR.
It is the opposing force to LOVE and to everything we strive for by "working hard."
We are conditioned by society and western culture to believe that we will not "go anywhere in life" unless we work hard. So, there is a misconception in our current belief systems regarding what it takes to be successful. It implies that without struggle there can be no results. As the saying goes "no pain, no gain". We think that it is good to fight oneself "upstream", because it differentiates us from "the rest", but in my way of thinking it actually is the other way around. Literally speaking.
In order to differentiate YOU from the rest, you need to relax and go with your flow in the river of life. Because everyone else is "doing their best", "working hard" or "pouring their heart out" in order to stay where they are by clinging on to a branch or a rock. The ones that really believe in the idea that "hard work always pays off" even force themselves to move up the stream. This is an action that will use up a lot of energy while keeping you in a constant "fighting-the-flow-mode". What it won't do is get you to the relaxed, positive and calm "place" you are looking for upstream...
Consider this, in order to establish a flow from your higher self which is an ocean of unconditional love, compassion, expansion and self love, YOU need to match that frequency. Struggle is a much lower frequency than your source. The negative thoughts are just reminders that you should change your frequency. They are actually telling you that you are out of alignment with your true self and that you need to act less, observe more, relax and surrender to the flow.
You might ask; But isn't that the same thing as giving up because "only dead fish go with the flow"? My answer to you is; what has that to do with you? YOU are the river. YOU are the flow.
Besides, surrender is not the same as giving up. It's more a matter of letting go off struggle and giving in to synchronistic flow of manifestation.
So, trust your self. Let go of the branches and the rocks. Stop wasting your time fighting your SELF struggling upstreams. Go with your flow. And don't fear. What you will find down the stream is just more of YOU.
The Universe does not create
through "hard work" and struggle.
Trust and FLOW is
the mode of manifestation.
Relax and follow your BLISS.
