Expand Don't Contract


When things are going beautifully in our lives. Finally, all our ASKS (desires) start showing up. Work is moving, success on its way you are meeting more and more people, adding new things to your life every day, reading, writing, exploring, travelling, creating, it sometimes can get overwhelming and you might want to stop and take a break.

What happens when you take that break? And how long does that break go on for you?

A while ago I was the one in a similar situation. I all of a sudden had so much work on my platter that I wanted it to all stop. I just wanted a break.

What I like you to be aware of here is that the Universe is listening to our every vibration. It does not matter if we say it out loud. Observe carefully here… I ASKED, not a direct ask, but subtly in my thoughts and the universe responded. “Alright then, take a break”, and before I knew it, days were just passing by without any work coming in and I started to get frustrated, upset, annoyed, bothered that nothing was happening. The good thing about all of this was that I finally got the awareness that I was the one who chose this. It was my limitation I got suckedinto and placed a barrier in my own way.

The question you might ponder is, "But what does one do? We all deserve a break, don’t we?"

Well yes, we do. However, there are two suggestions how you can take this forward.

One is to be aware that I have taken a call to take a break and hence whenever I make a demand I will move forward in the path of creation.

The second suggestion is, whenever you feel overwhelmed with the number of things happening, start expanding out. Just imagine yourself expanding out.

What we generally tend to do is, when too much is going on, we feel stuck and small and hence contract. The idea here is to expand out, become bigger than the task at hand.

The moment I realized, "NO, I don’t want to choose this… this is limiting my life. I would like to be more, choose more", the energy started to shift and I promised myself not to choose mediocrity ever again.

So here is a game we can play., the game of mediocrity. This is just so that you get a sense of being small. For today reject the universe, complain, crib, feel pathetic, don’t create anything and whenever you decide that you have had enough of being pathetic STOP!

Ask yourself, was it fun being mediocre? Pathetic and small?

If not ask yourself not to go down that zone ever again. Choose more instead, by expanding out.

Right, where we are is where we have chosen to be. If you want a different result make a different choice. Expand instead of contracting.
