Most of us were brought up with the misguided notion that we should please others before ourselves, that we should take action when not in alignment (usually to please others), and then to beat ourselves up when we fail to please or fall short of another’s expectations. Well I am happy to declare that those days are over, thanks to The Teachings of Abraham!
The societal definition of Procrastination serves as the perfect example. Let’s begin with Merrium Webster:
: to be slow or late about doing something that should be done : to delay doing something until a later time because you do not want to do it, because you are lazy, etc.”
In other words, if you don’t do what you “should” do, what has been asked of you, either by yourself (a project/passion that you want to participate in) or by another person, you can now consider yourself an unmotivated looser who is lazy! Wow! A bit harsh wouldn’t you say? And you wonder why you beat yourself up? You were taught to, and they did a good job. But now we can throw all that antediluvian bullshit out in the trash where it belongs.
Let’s start now with Abraham’s Definition of Procrastination:
“Procrastination is the wisdom to not try to force something that you’re not vibrationally ready for!”
Fuck yes! It’s not that I’m a looser, it’s that I’m not aligned and therefore feel stuck. Hmmm. So, if I do the energetic work of Aligning, then take action on the heels of that momentum, I will not only feel better (the super bonus) as I’ve become up to speed with my Broader Aspect, but I’ll Master this assigned task with genius, creativity, ease, flow, wisdom, and clarity as I align and flow The Energy That Creates Worlds!!
Yup, that’s it! You got it. Now a quick primer to the “How do I align with something that I feel stuck about?” question.
We know that you can’t pivot against the stream of feeling stuck to feeling good instantly, there’s too much momentum built up on the negative side; however, you can almost instantly conjure up relief by going general. Follow me here as I do the Going General Practice on something that has been vexing me:
It’s ok that this doesn’t feel like a good time. I am happy to work towards a feeling of alignment before taking action. I want the joy of creating through alignment and I am willing to do the vibrational work to attain that joy. I really love it when I feel good about working on projects. It is so satisfying to flow with creativity. The reason I’m not flowing now is that I have to get up to speed with the Genius that is me! My Genius isn’t going anywhere, she is eagerly anticipating my return to her vibrational vicinity and lobbing clues at me (paths of least resistance) everywhere I turn. This contrast has served me, as now I know it’s not my fault or a character defect that has me vexed, it’s just a question of alignment. I’m really good at finding my sure footedness, I’ve done it countless times before. It feels good remembering my successes at turning my thoughts and beliefs to those that serve. It feels good knowing I’m on the right path always, and I love the feeling that I’m going to take a wicked bounce from this contrast. I don’t have to do anything right now this red hot minute, I can relax in the knowing that when I am aligned, the information and inspiration will flow like red hot lava! And on, and on, and on!
Yup, Creator, that’s how we do it here on The Leading Most Edge of Thought in The Whole Darn Universe! Until next time. Namaste Homies…~*
