Let It Go Meditation

How Expectations Can Ruin Your Life

Have you ever stopped and wondered how an expectation can ruin your life?  Or why something didn’t turn out the way that you thought it should.  It is more likely that you’ve decided the outcome to be a certain way, and if it is not, then there is a price to pay.  In truth, who is paying the price?  

You are the one paying the price with a price tag that is way too much.  

 

Pondering Expectations

What does your life look like if you let go and released any expectations? Close your eyes for a moment and enter a scene:  you’re invited to go to a dinner party,  you know one person,  you are not aware of the menu,  and when you arrive you see that everyone is dressed in a costume. Close your eyes and envision this particular setting. How do you feel?  Do you feel welcome Do you feel uncomfortable? Do you feel embarrassed?  Do you feel like an outcast?

Why do you feel this way.  Maybe you were completely okay, you are super comfortable in your own skin and this is awesome; therefore, you don’t care- let’s party on/ let’s have a great time.  However, what if you feel extremely out of your comfort zone, unsure what to do and this is not what you expected.  Do you stay or do you  leave?

If I let go of controlled expectations then will happen…

 

Letting Go Of Control

Yes, essentially this is ultimately about letting go of control, and just being happy with whatever comes.

Let’s surmise that you stayed and you had a great time. Why, because you let go of the final outcome. You were happy with what was happening around you no matter what,  you have an incredible sense of self worth and did not care what others thought about you. Or rather you allowed yourself to just go with the flow.

What would happen if you allow that to be throughout every aspect of your life?  As children we are given first this and then that. Our parent(s)/ grandparent(s)/society have preconditioned us into human behavior;  in order to receive; you must do ABC to receive XYZ. Thus, this has created expectations.

Go With the Flow

I have personally discovered from my own Self.  That it was not necessarily the outcome or the expectations that was causing me grief within mySelf.  It was the small self ego monstrosity, that would rear its ugly essence. It was a lack of faith and trust as a whole. It is about allowing  your Higher Self to connect to spirit in a trusting manner and holding onto the faith that all will work out as it shall.  It is the disallowance of an idea that was preconceived and notion to be as such. In other words just let it go, go with the flow and allow Divine Spirit to bring you the most Miraculous, Grandeur moment. Or what I like to remind myself of when I get into the when I get into an expectation:  “Let It Go, Let it Flow…” – Natasha Botkin

Dark Angels Message in the Sky

There is No Shame or Guilt in Darkness

There is no shame or guilt in darkness.  We all have moments where the dark can creep in.  Who is to say that one is better or darker than another.

Doing the Best That We Can

Shame and guilt are a way of saying I am bad, but you are not. We are all doing the best that we can.  Divine Spirit helps guide us to our highest potential.  It is never ending and does not fade.  This is the parent that stays up in the darkest of moments to help shine that light on you when you return home.

Shining Divine Light

So, darkness has found its way to you.  Does that this means it is the end,  This is quite the opposite; darkness is a cry in the dark for a light passage home.  Lighted paths do not mean death.  Suicide is at an all time high.

One does not need to render that this is the end.  The ego would prefer for death; it is a prideful thing.  Oh no you didn’t!  This is not an insolent movement; this is the acceptance that there is help.  Someone is always listening, whether it is suicide, anxiety, worry,  The human conceptional reasoning of dark is not the end all.  There is hope, there is movement.

Darkest of Souls

Along my journey I have met and worked with some of the darkest souls that one can possibly imagine.  Some may surprise you as they do not fit the ideal image of “dark.” This is not a horror movie; this is real life.  This a precious individual(s)who may be lost and unsure how to to find solace in their being.

There is no room for criticism nor judgement.  Everyone is doing the best that they can do at that moment.  This is what matters the most.

My Dark Admission Time

I was about to abandon and give up the Magical Blessings Healing Center when a dear soul in need of Divine Light reached out to me.  It was the message that I needed to keep going.  This individual’s words resonate deep within me and stirred a sleeping giant within me awake!

“I had every intention of ending my life today, and your poem spoke to me in such a powerful way, that I have decided to stay and fulfill my dreams.” 

I was gob smack in awe of this! My tears breaking the damn. I heard my Soul Shine its Inner Divine Radiance for all to see. Moments later my BeLoved shared a notion that would help support me.  Just when I was about to give up, Divine Spirit spoke strongly, “Please Natasha, One More Time; Do Not Give Up Just Before the Miracle!” 

A New Way of Being

We are energy light beings.  We have dark moments and light moments.  It is okay to go slow, tread lightly and be gentle as you learn in a new manner.  Please be gentle with yourself and allow yourself to dance in the light of the Divine for you my Dear Heart are the most beautiful Being!!

Natasha, I would like to re-learn how to hear my Heart & Soul- Please help me Shine my Inner Radiance or clear my energy.

Angels in the Clouds

Why There is No Separation With Divine Will

There is no separation with Divine Will as the ego would wish you to believe. A negative premise to keep you locked away from achieving your greatness.

capricious Separation

Separation can be described as an egotistic nuance of mass mischievousness.  The ego would lead you to believe that you are alone and that no one cares for you.  This is simply not true.  We are never alone, and Spirit always cares about us.

It is the disallowance of separation of Self from the small self aka ego into the acceptance of Higher Self.  Which connects us all to the Holy Trinity of our Heart, Soul and Divine.  This is capricious in nature that merely suggests that one is alone; it is the reverence to dispel and disallow this nonsense to take place.

Undo the TEACHINGS

We are taught many things in our lives.  Some is from those who love us, and some of this is from society.  All of which is outside of our Self-  our true Self.  This is where the separation can occur. A whim that seems logical, and it is completely illogical.  Why would the Divine Spirit wish for one to suffer or think that they are less?  Divine Spirit does not wish this upon us, yet more often that not, this is what occurs.

We enter into an agreement to be taught via love; unfortunately, these teachings are from those who were also taught in this manner.  The human evolution risking its soul progression and evolution into a manner that seems daunting.  An old paradigm that no longer serves us; yet, why does one stay.

Fear! 

In my previous blog, “How the Power of Forgiving My Ego Saved Me,” I describe how fear is the underlying notion that one cannot move, things are great just the way they are.  What we should really be saying is conditional love and expectations.

Conditional Love 

When we were younger we were taught via an old human conditioning.  If you do this, then that will occur.  For a moment ponder Pavlov’s dogs and the conditioned stimulus.  The dog was presented a treat.  The saliva would lead to drool as the dog recalled how wonderful the treat tasted.  Sit- good boy!  The dog receives a treat.  Quite quickly the dog learned to complete the sitting task with ease as it really likes the treat.

Now how is this any different from parenting.  A parent desires a certain outcome.  All parents have different cultural views; therefore they have different ideal outcomes.  If you do this, then you are rewarded with a good girl/atta boy and maybe a treat.  Through the power of control; the Free Spirit upon which you were born was reduced and dissolved into a smaller self called the ego.  This is the makings for conditioned love.  Thus, through no fault of your own, you were taught if this, then that.  Slowly the ego creating notions that can create commotion as one grows older.

Expectations

Hence the human birth of expectations.  An expectation can be defined as a mental state of looking forward to something.  Expectations are a way to set one up for failure.  When you go in with a certain idea and this does not happen, how do you feel?  Failure, yet Spirit did not wish for you to feel this way.  Expectations are from the ego- aka Free Will; Divine Will does not wish you to feel this way.  Divine Will merely guides you to a solution, idea or experience; Free Will is when one loses control and the mental chatter looms into the picture.  This is almost like a dark shadow lurks on the outside waiting, searching for a way in.

AHA!  Here I go!  Victory-score one for me! (excerpt from When Egos Feed & Start in the Dark Workbook)

False Expectations

Then what seemed wonderful can turn sour.  How many times have you heard of a failed marriage or a failed experiment or even a broken heart.  The human conditioning of expectations set one up for the acceptance of a certain way, and when this does not occur, darkness of the ego separates from the Divine and the peaceful harmony of Spirit disengages and the power of Free Will takes over.

Divine Will cannot stand in place of Free Will.  It can merely suggest, hint and guide. It cannot do as it is not a doing; this is a being & Spirit will patiently wait for your return from separate expectations.

Return of Divine Will

Magical Blessings Soul Bursting ForthHow does one return to Divine Will?  Let go of the old patterns and triggers that are blocking you. There is a darkness the looms and lurks; Spirit will graciously guide you; create ways to help make suggestive moves.  For example, maybe you have stayed way too long in a job that no long serves you.  You were shown a new door way; yet, lingered way too long. You may have been fired or a new manager made your work life horrible.  Yes, this was Divine Will saying time to move along your path; but, Free Will kept you in fear and Free Will does not always mean great things.  Often times is it almost the polar opposite.

You can change your mind at any time; adjust the sails of wings and turn to Spirit and say, “Help me let go, take flight and soar.”  You may even wish to acknowledge the fear of change.  I know it is time for me to move to a new home; yet have no clue where to go.  “Dear Divine, I know my time here has concluded; yet I am frightened that I do not know where I am going.  Please show me the path to my new home and help me to silence the fears in a positive manner that respects all of my being.” and so it is.

Ask and You shall Receive

Ask and you shall receive; however do not fret, worry nor believe that it may not happen.  I had a Divine Will moment that took 2 years to manifest.  Trust me, when I say “Been there, done that.” What are you practicing? Faith and Trust in Divine Will & Spirit.  

In all honesty, I had many egotistic monstrosities keeping me from moving at one point in my life.  I finally had enough, let it go, got out of my way and the most Magical occurrences began to shift and align for me.

Believe deep in your Heart & Soul and “Seek and the  Desire Shall Seek You!” – Natasha Botkin

Yes, Natasha I would like to learn Faith, Trust and being able to Seek.
