It is much more fun to live with many, ever changing truths than with one or two fixed beliefs.
When we have new experiences or receive new information then our truth can change. When we have beliefs, they do not change. You can interchange the words/meanings of truth and belief as you wish, but I will explain the words as I understand them.
We are empowered when we live by our truth, we are disempowered when we live by our beliefs (usually because our beliefs have been given to us and not developed by us).
Our individual truths will always be exactly that, individual. While we may share some similarities with others, no one will ever see the world quite like us, through the lens of our unique truth. When we share our truth with others they can try out our truth, in a way to help them discover their own truth.
Beliefs however are rigid and are either followed or they are not.
Truth gives our lives flexibility and allow us to evolve and grow.
Your truth grows and changes, and your truth about events that happened in your past also grows and changes. If you imagine a significant event from your past, you may see it now with different eyes, because the experiences you have had since, and your understanding of life have all added to your unique ways of understanding your own truth. You may have also processed many emotions and feelings that were attached to these significant events, which again enable you to see the even with fresh new eyes and understanding and therefore with a new truth.
If we stay fixed and rigid with our beliefs and our truths about ourselves and our world, then we stay stuck in old earth. We are all evolving and new earth is ready for us to anchor to, but we can’t do this if we are still anchored to old earth via our truths and beliefs.
It is time to throw away everything you ever thought and believed in, and leave a door open for new truths to fill you, to lead you, to guide you and to evolve within you.
If you are going through a stage of not really knowing who you are or what you want, then this is great, as you are letting go of your old fixed beliefs about yourself and starting to form new truths (hopefully based on the new earth energies). It may take awhile for the new truths to start to form but just adopt the truth that you are evolving, that you are moving towards something new, that you are OK, and that you are not alone in this.
Since I started my healing and teaching work many years ago my personal truths have undergone many evolutions. I stopped teaching Reiki for awhile because my new truths did not match what I was/had been teaching. I then came back to teaching after a break once I could integrate the new information and new truths I had inside of me. I have not taught for a couple of years, again, having trouble teaching a modality that did not match my inner truth anymore. It is very disconcerting when the “rules” change. But I am fluid in my flow to allow my truth to constantly evolve as my understandings and experiences also evolve. Holding on to our old truths just because they support an income or way of life that we have grown accustomed to is not very healthy in the long term. As my new truths surface and I find they don’t fit into the model of the business I have created, then services I offer to others need to evolve and grow with me. Here are some examples of how my truths have changed lately:
I still do hands-on healing work, but it is all heart centred (where my universe is). By introducing or showing my inner universe to others, it can trigger many vibrational changes in them and we can share information at much higher levels which changes the way healing works.
By staying in and living in my universe, it allows others to strengthen their own universes and live in integrity according to theirs. When we start interfering with each others universes (choices etc) then things get messy. We can overlap for joint endeavors in honest, unique and authentic ways, but ultimately everyone else benefits when we do what is best for us and our own universe.
When thoughts start spiraling in my head, when emotions come up, I look at these with the awareness that I created these reactions (someone else didn’t cause them or make me angry, sad etc). While others may have given me the gift of seeing what is inside of my human self, they are entirely mine to own and to process. Just by being aware and giving a different perspective view to these feelings, thoughts and emotions they are easily processed. But if I still believed they were the other persons fault, and that this negative circumstance was happening TO me (rather than FOR me) then it is almost impossible to process and integrate these energies within me and then move on. When I have processed these old thoughts and emotions I have more room for my inner universe to expand and grow within me, filling all parts of my physical body. I can integrate with my higher selves (future selves) and my soul essence (my unique aspect of source) and evolve and transform my life. By being too rigid in beliefs and not being willing to change and evolve, this transformation cannot take place.
As we let our truths become fluid and ever changing, we dissolve our ego selves, because we don't have to justify or prove or defend what we believe, do or say. We are willing to look within and make choices based on what feels best for us in each moment, based on our own unique truth in that moment and we become willing to course correct and make different choices at any time, because the choices were not made from a rigid belief in the first place.
I believe that knowing who we are at our unique soul level holds the key to living an authentic and joyful life. Once we know who we are, we can begin to BE who we are, and then BECOME who we were always destined to be.
