Living WIthout Expectation

file1121296300929Are you open to the messages of your soul, of your guides and of your life? How do you honor them? How do you breathe into them? I believe that each moment of each day brings to us gifts. We simply need to be open to receive them and ready to celebrate them. If the gifts are shrouded in what we consider to be pain or challenge how can we break through the initial fear or disappointment and ready ourselves for the lesson and beauty that will be revealed with time and understanding? Robert Moss states this, "Living by synchronicity isn't merely about getting messages. It is about growing the poetic consciousness that allows us to taste and touch what rhymes and resonates in the world we inhabit, and how the world-behind-the-world reveals itself by fluttering the veils of our consensual reality." How do you welcome the resonation?

For me I find that I am more receptive and able to live in the moment more fully, gathering the essence imparted to me with cupped hands and open heart, when I let go of my expectations. Expectations often lead to disappointment because we are only holding one possibility as an outcome of the many that are available to us. We invest our energies, our hopes and even our fears into this possibility and if and when it does not occur…we feel let down or that we have wasted our time or even frustrated and angry. But if we hold back from expecting and stay open to the options we are ready to “taste and touch what rhymes and resonates” within us.

I have learned with this practice that when I live this way the Universe provides me with experiences that far file1761263062467surpass my expectations. Life is fuller, sweeter, and so satisfying. The flow of the energies within my days is so much easier, there is a grace and a peace filled rhythm to them. When I get out of step from this walk in life, it quickly becomes clear. My days suddenly hold stress in them. Things look and feel less than positive. My relationships begin to suffer and my connection to Source feels distant. Lots of red flags begin to wave! Doesn’t take long to figure out something is up! And so a shift brings me back to center. And I begin again.
