What are your Values?
Have you really looked at them lately, written them down, or considered how many people in your life step over those values? A very important part of spiritual evolution in the 3D environment is to anchor, in this dimension, your ‘Soul’ (Source of Universal Lifeforce). Once this presence is fully here you can surrender and take a back seat.
The Soul’s values may differ slightly from your physical self, mainly due to others’ impressions placed on you. The creating of emotional traumas, society, your parents and inherent belief systems, for example. So, the key is understanding which ones are mind projections to which ones are universally based on empowerment.
A good example: maybe you develop a value because people always take advantage of you ‘financially.’ You would, of course, get annoyed over time and friends and family would say that you should stop giving money out the way you do, wake up etc… and on paper, in our current awareness, most people would say that’s sound advice, and of course, the right thing to do.
So, you stop giving freely. Your new value might be, “I now only give out money in extreme emergencies and will always question the other person intensely before giving it.” Again, this is great on paper and most people would agree.
Are you taking back your power? Yes, to a certain extent. But, it’s not really universal empowerment. Is it the right value? NO. A few things we must then be aware of.
Firstly, you have become defensive in this new value, which is fear based. This is because you most likely have developed the belief that, “I’m always taken advantage of.” Was the question asked, “Why does this always happen to me?” Most likely, yes, and the answer is probably “Arrrgh, you’re just too nice and innocent, you have a big heart.”
Yes, maybe, but that’s not the reason!
Secondly, you may start to have resentments towards the people that have taken money from you. This then leads you down a dark karmic path, which when left unchecked, can fester into all sorts of negativity. Do you have any idea how this negativity looks energetically? If you could see it, you might be sick!
You must realise that even the worst person in your life is helping you on your soul journey. This is because without them taking from you, you would never learn the lesson of discernment, sovereignty, and even Forgiveness. These are crucial spiritual lessons that everyone must master. Do you really resent those people now?
In truth, you are the person that created the situation, so there really can’t be any blame elsewhere. Your ego will always tell you different but DON’T LISTEN! Maybe you have always been a victim and you carry this consciousness with you, but this is just playing out again and again until you LEARN the lesson.
The problem will also be within one of your chakras. Most likely, the base and solar plexus chakras. Your new value could be, “I take responsibility for my own life and I will always use discernment in this matter going forward.” Then you would use gratitude each day and say thank you for the experience. Say thank you to everyone for teaching you that you had a power imbalance, because without them using and abusing you, you would have never learned how to take it back.
Notice how the Soul’s perspective differs from the Ego’s? There’s no karma, no defense mechanisms, no retreating behind an emotional wall, but rather, an absolute acknowledgment of your lesson and blessings to all. It’s really a no-brainer!
Don’t forget, no one can harm you without your soul’s permission. So, if you dabble in deceit and the pain of others, then this will come back to you. It’s never outside of yourself unless you give your power away. If everyone employed this universal truth, you would never judge or criticise – wouldn’t that be a happy place to live?
Call-to-Action: Write down your values to see which ones are of the Soul, and start living those today. Most certainly add sovereignty and discernment to the list. When you have these in place, your life will do a “180.”
