The biggest challenges for many of us is either getting and keeping momentum, or having momentum, but it going the opposite direction -- downward momentum.
For the latter, it's like having one foot on the gas and one foot on the brake. We have a downward pull, and then we're simultaneously having upward pull. If you're driving and pushing to make stuff happen in your life, it's because you've got momentum going in two directions.
The worst thing that we try to do when we're pushing and pushing is to push more, or push harder, at least in the same way that we've been pushing.
We must notice where is the momentum going in the opposite direction. This is one of the deeper esoteric meanings of the Biblical statement, "Where two or more are gathered in agreement, there I am in the midst of them." The two or more can certainly be two or more people as in a church, organization, spiritual organization, but it also represents the two or more aspects of ourselves - the conscious, the unconscious, the mental, emotional, physical. When all of those are in agreement, moving in the same direction, then you activate the larger pattern of your potential, and you have real momentum.
This is also one of the meanings behind the Biblical statement that you cannot serve two masters, or you will be a house divided and a house divided cannot stand. A lot of times, when we're feeling stuck and we're lacking real momentum, it's because we're trying to serve two masters. We are ambitious. We are, on one hand, going for something and then the other hand not believing it's going to happen or not believing that we're worthy, or whatever the case may be. We can't get real momentum.
As the core of the Emergence work, we want to ultimately bring all of our life into congruence, into integrity with our biggest vision - all going in the same direction. That's what develops the optimal level of momentum.
As we hit new levels of growth and unfoldment, we hit new thresholds. Those unconscious limited beliefs, or just those areas that need to be activated more fully, they come up, and they create these road blocks that slow us down. We have to look at them, whether it's a shadow, a values conflict or just developing ourselves.
One of the biggest of misunderstandings and things we tell ourselves is "I'm stuck." We believe that we actually can be stuck. The truth is you can never really be stuck, no matter what the situation is. Even if you're literally bedridden right now - there's four core areas where you can get momentum. They are mentally, emotionally, physically, and spiritually. (We could even say energetically, because you can actually separate out the energetics of it.)
If one of those areas is difficult or closed off at the moment, like being bedridden, you could sit and visualize and imagine yourself playing your sport and repeating it over and over, just getting it down to the most minute detail until you are just playing basketball masterfully. You see every little move of your hand. You can watch the best highlights of the golf swing and then imagine yourself doing it. Believe it or not, you are developing that skill mentally and emotionally, and creating real momentum.
This is true in any area. By practicing your talents, your gifts, your skills, at any level and any moment, there's always a next step that you can do mentally and emotionally. There's always something you can do to move forward.
The way you keep taking your life to higher levels is you have to habituate whatever level you're working towards, so that that becomes a subconscious subjective pattern or habit. When you're thinking about building momentum, it's not just about going from zero to 60 quickly. Sometimes that's necessary, but it's more about developing the habits, to ultimately put momentum on autopilot.
Habit is ultimately what determines your character, and your character is what determines your destiny. Especially if you're going, what seems to be going backwards, it requires patience as you're building these new habits, because at first it might appear like you're not getting any momentum.
If you try to move a big giant ship that is going in one direction, you turn it, you won't see it turning right away - it takes time.
You can't always judge by appearances where there's real progress. If you're building these habits based on your highest vision and based on the character you want to develop, then you are on the right track. It doesn't have to be this grand high faluting vision. It's just whatever that thing is you most feel and inspired to move towards.
You're designing a way of life that allows you to mentally, emotionally, physically, spiritually, and energetically start moving everything towards that direction.
At the most simplest level, how you get the Mighty Mo is to start moving... Move yourself emotionally, move yourself mentally, move yourself spiritually, and move yourself physically - you can always move no matter what, no matter who you are.
