For us to use deliberate creation successfully we need to become masters of the Art of Allowing.
Until you understand the potent energy of allowing on a deeper, spiritual level, its power, your power will always be amateur at best.
Which could mean you will journey through life’s experience with a hit or miss deliberate creation process.
Why is it that we struggle with allowing?
How come we manage to keep the good stuff away while the icky stuff pours in?
And if we are powerful creators, why is it that our process of deliberate creation isn’t a guaranteed success?
Let’s first understand what it is that we are hoping to ‘allow’ and why does this process exist?
In the LOA world allowing is talked about as the situation where the universe has what we want and all we have to do is energetically line up to what we want. And once we are aligned it comes into our reality.
I find this explanation to be too narrow because it's all good and we are OK when things we want, show up but it leaves open to the imagination what we are to do when things that we don’t want show up.
And the one thing we have lots of is a wild mind, with plenty of time for creativity, which in happy circumstances works wonders but when things aren't going as per plan, can get out of control.
Hello! Spiral into my deepest darkest fears!
Allow me to offer an explanation which is one of the principles of the State of Happy course we did a while back. This I find is the unsaid process of the Art of Allowing.
All of our physical experiences are a result of our individual soul’s journey. The current reality is a physical reflection of thoughts of the past. That is to say, the current reality is the manifestation of something you asked for in the past, it is not based on or related to what you are thinking now.
What you think, do, or say in the present creates the future reality that you will experience later on.
The universal law at play here is that every action (thought, action, word) has a manifestation, and the person creating it will experience it. There is no escape or way out of it. If you create it, you experience it.
It is a circle of life, the infinite loop that is the law of creation.
Our creative control or the power to create is on the onset of that loop. With our thoughts and intentions, we send out into the creation circle what we want to manifest.
But beyond that, we cannot stop the loop. The intention must complete the cycle and come back to us as an experience to be had.
Look at the image above (it’s the best way to illustrate my point).
The part where the sun is just a bit brighter? Think of that point as the onset of our power to create. We send off into the circle our intentions and it loops back to us, as a manifestation of reality.
So far this is information we are familiar with. This next bit is the additional explanation.
When we experience something in our reality and we engage with it, either through feelings, thoughts, actions or words, we start off another ‘loop’. And although it is a new loop of creation, whatever is the energy with which we engage, it brings the same experience as manifestation.
So when its the good stuff and you engage, you'll see more of the good stuff come in. If its the icky stuff and you engage you'll see more of the icky stuff come in.
If you allow whatever shows up in your life to play out without interacting or reacting to it, you allow that loop, that past creation, to close.
And this is particularly useful to remember for when the icky stuff shows up.
If we keep in mind that whatever is playing out right now are loops closing from past creations, allowing as a process can be a hopeful and serene event.
Over the years we've created so many loops, however, our higher-self, knows what it wants to create because it knows what lessons and experiences it wants to have. We have to trust what it has already kick-started.
With the art of allowing we must allow the loops to close, learn the lessons for our soul and keep our focus on choosing which news loops we want to kick start.
Allowing the icky stuff in, is not a sign of weakness or giving up or being powerless. It is you aligning yourself to the universal laws. It is a way to move forward and keep the focus on creating what you want next.
The more you ‘react’ to the icky reality without consciously choosing your thoughts, the less control you have on bringing the good stuff in. Because you are spending time creating new loops of the icky stuff when you could be creating new loops of the good stuff.
Like everything else, the art of allowing is mastered with practice.
Sometimes you might find yourself in the thick of things, that's where you want to have support. Find someone who can guide you through your process of allowing. When you are stuck you find it with your mentors, confidants, or with Free coaching or GVCA coaches or me.
The sooner you become better at allowing, the faster you will move towards accomplishing your purpose on Earth.
