I was talking with a friend the other day about all the self-improvement books we'd read when we were starting our spiritual journeys, and we both agreed that we'd built up pretty good libraries over the years. And I became aware that, as I've been going through my own process of clearing and healing, I've been less and less drawn to do any of that sort of reading.
Why? A couple of reasons really : firstly, when we read, we tend to be thinking and analysing the information i.e. we're in our heads/our minds - and, particularly in these new energies, we are being called to be in our heart space as much as we can; secondly, what we read is the distillation of someone else's life and experiences often lived in the old energies. And then, while my friend and I were talking about this, I heard : You are your own book—start writing! In other words, more than ever now, we have to be consciously writing the book of who we are and, in so doing, actively creating our life....it no longer serves us (or anyone else) to be constantly retelling the old, old story about our patterning and our belief systems. Now is the time for us consciously to choose to do the work of healing and clearing out the old stuff that can keep us stuck. Whether we do this on our own, or by finding those who can help and support us, we are the only ones who can do the work. No amount of reading can do it for us.
The day you choose to start the work is the day you jump-start your own growth....and it's the day you start writing the book that is YOU - the new No.1 Best Seller in the Universe!
