Do you feel as though you are missing something in your life, that there are pieces of you that you need in order to make your life work?
And perhaps you are wondering how you are ever going to be at peace within yourself?
There are periods in my life where these questions have confused me and circled me and found a home inside of me.
One of these periods happened this morning. But unlike my past, I did something rare and incredibly worthwhile.
I asked for help.
I asked my divine guide, Lia (which stands for Love In Action), a part of god who speaks to me in an ethereal feminine voice.
She told me I was trying too hard, which was no doubt true. It’s what I usually do, especially when I can’t seem to find an answer that fits.
Lia said to me, “A shift that would help you is to think of yourself as ALREADY WHOLE and that nothing you can ever do will make you MORE whole.”
What a stunning statement, if I could find a way to believe it. I imagined the amazing changes that could make in my life.
Already whole. Wow, does that take the pressure off!
I told her that sounded wonderful, but from my current mindset, I asked how could I come to believe it and accept it as my truth?
There was a moment of silence. I knew what this meant. It was time to clear my mind of distractions. I don’t know about you, but I cannot hear anything from the outside, if my inner dialogue is too loud. So, I paused and waited.
Lia felt me slow into stillness and spoke again, “As always, you CHOOSE it as your reality and once chosen, you repeat this (thought/feeling) as your reality. You do this over and over again.”
She waited a moment, then continued, “I know you tend to think there has to be some bigger, more extravagant concept or practice, but there isn’t. It is this simple. Try to remember, the best things in life are all simple.”
Being a slow learner sometimes I wanted to paraphrase what she’d said to me, to ensure I really understood. “So, I CHOOSE to tell myself I am WHOLE already and once I accept this and live this truth, I feel whole, and this changes me?”
A simple one word reply, “Yes.”
“But” I said, “I find this choice difficult to make when I don’t believe it. How can I when there feels like there are missing pieces to me?”
Clearly, I needed reinforcement, which is what I received as Lia spoke again, “Missing pieces are figments, mental mirages, but not the truth. You are seeing/observing the ‘outer’ layer only. It is your ‘inner’ layer that is your truth and where you are whole.”
I questioned, “So, I have to look deeper inside?”
She told me, “Yes” and I asked another question, “But what about my outside?”
Lia allowed me to settle down, sensing my inability to fully grasp what she was saying to me.
“Your conscious choices define your experience of everything in this world, both inner and outer. Your inner world already knows this and has used this power to create your magnificent life. Your outer layer, that which sees, but fears the world, needs to know that there are no real missing pieces and that you are already truly and completely whole. This happens through your ‘choosing’ to see the truth. The proof you seek happens every time you make this choice and believe the results. It really is that simple.”
I sit back and try to absorb this message to me, and it becomes clear, I will only know the truth if I give myself to this simplicity.
