As we go through our day it is important to pay attention to what we are feeling in each moment. This awareness helps us be aware of where we are in relationship to our inner self, and it is in this relationship that the real work of life unfolds. When we are open and connected to our source and who we really are, good things can happen, life feels fuller and more meaningful, and we can experience being happy. But it is hard for many of us to stay in that good connected feeling because of all the ego attachments (fears and beliefs) we have built up through this lifetime and others. We hide or try to protect ourselves from those things from others and from within ourselves that we consider painful or dangerous. And this self imposed protective layer makes it hard to stay in that beautiful free energy that we have all experienced from time to time. This is our challenge then – to continually let go of our preconditioned self protective stance and to allow the openness and resourcefulness that is ever present and always available to flow in. And it will if we let it! When we give ourselves permission to soften to this life energy that is always knocking at our door we become more of our true selves and reap the benefits of all that is waiting to come in. It is hard to receive the gifts of the universe when you are closing yourself off to them! That is why this work of letting go of these blocks and fears is so important. It really is the doorway to peace, love, fulfillment, and success. This is the real work, and when we do it, all good things come to us.
