"You are one thing only. You are a Divine Being. An all-powerful Creator. You are a Deity in jeans and a t-shirt, and within you dwells the infinite wisdom of the ages and the sacred creative force of All that is, will be and ever was." –Anthon St. Maarteen
reprinted from my column in110 Magazine
That quote says it all. You’re the all-powerful creator of your life and the possibilities are endless.
Occasionally, we forget and play small in life. What are some of the reasons we play small?
We play small when we are in Fear.
We can think of FEAR as an acronym for False Evidence Appearing Real.
These are often the subtle stories we whisper to ourselves which then create our experience.
We actively play small by staying in resistance and reluctance to our truth, by staying in resistance to sharing our hearts, talents and gifts with the world. We play small when we give ourselves permission to entertain unloving thoughts or harsh judgements, to complain, to take offense, to hold a grudge, to choose victimhood; we play small when we limit our lives to less than what we came to earth to do and be.
If your heart/soul are saying I want to be more loving, I want to trust the divine order of life but the mind is saying that person is wrong, and I want to punish them, or this situation is terrible, or I can’t do this because I’m not good enough, or I’ll never make my goals or dreams come true because I’m unworthy or that’s impossible because nobody has ever done XYZ.
In this space, when what you want conflicts with what you do, you will not experience heart/mind congruency. In other words, you will be playing small.
Have you ever played double dutch or jump rope with 3 participants? Two people swinging the ropes, whipping in a rhythm, one person stands outside of this vibrational field. To enter in, that person must get into the same rhythm and begin flowing with the ropes and when in tune and aligned, jump in.
I see this is how we spend a lot of time in life…we desire to be in the flow, but we resist getting completely in the rhythm and jumping in with both feet. We may dabble with one foot in infinite possibilities and the other in the limited belief systems we’ve been conditioned to adhere to. This incongruence can affects what we create in life.
When we allow ourselves to relax into our hearts, alchemize fear and trust the divine plan in every moment, then we are choosing the field of infinite possibilities and we expand into the life we are capable of living.
Pay attention to even the smallest things that take you out of alignment and be willing to take responsibility and choose again. When we don’t have an answer to a situation, or we feel unclear, confused or afraid, we may lean toward labeling it an obstacle, a problem, or set back. We may be conditioned to treasure our own opinions, argue for our limitations and worship our judgments.
Living in infinite possibilities means we can take responsibility for our lives and choose. We can see a problem or possibility, a set up or a setback. Choose what empowers your soul.
We must take responsibility because all thought produces form at some level.
I have found that an excellent way to live in the field of infinite possibility is to make what I call masterful inquiries. To be the master of something is to be very skilled.
When you experience conflict, upset, anger, frustration, stress, fear or anxiety, these patterns and programs may leave you wanting to become the victim and blame.
It may sound like:
Why is this happening to me?
Who is to blame for my suffering?
These are not masterful inquiries. Do not allow hurt or upset to fester up inside of you and cause an infection.
After noticing that you are playing small, a masterful inquiry will be one that aligns you with life’s possibilities:
Is there something for me to dissolve, resolve, dispel or detach from this pattern?
What am I to understand, learn or see?
How can I be of service?
How can I share love and compassion?
You are not here to play small, or to be mediocre. You are designed for a divine destiny; you are positioned for a purpose, here to change the narrative, to report from a new lens, and to play in the field of infinite possibility.
From here, we bless instead of blame, we offer grace instead of grudges, compassion in place of complaints and find ourselves jumping into the flow where we unleash the infinite possibilities and create our highest and best lives.
