Sacred Foothill

The Sacred Foothill
Becomes especially important
In wintertime

When the driving snow comes
And you can no longer see
The Sacred Mountain above

Small though it may be
As one ascending
Out of the darkness
Toward the Light

I need this foothold in sanity
To remain steady
In the whiteout of chaos
That is the world

1. 2012: The Year of Consciousness

Mike Adams

In Chinese culture, every year has an animal mascot. It’s the “year of the monkey,” for example, or the year of the rooster. For NaturalNews, 2012 is the year of consciousness (or conscious awakening, in a sense).

Does this mean we’re going to abandon the mundane daily news of planet earth and float off into la-la land where we start chanting mantras and worshipping self-proclaimed enlightened gurus?

Hardly. In fact, in 2012 I want to talk with you about what I call grounded consciousness. Or “holistic consciousness.”

And why? Because it is the lack of consciousness that’s behind every corporate crime, government conspiracy, political corruption, Big Pharma scheme and environmental crime that takes place on our planet.

Those who lack consciousness engage in “you versus me” crimes of selfishness—stealing, exploiting, destroying, deceiving—yet such behaviors come from a place of ignorance about consciousness and the universe around us.

Let me make this really practical and easy to understand by invoking characters from popular culture.

Yoda taught Luke Skywalker that all things are connected. The “Force,” as he explained it, flowed through all living things and bound them together in a kind of mystical universal energy. George Lucas was right on the mark when creating this fictional character, because the Force really does exist, and it’s made of consciousness.

The Force is a sense of not just self-awareness but of connectedness with other living things. The truly conscious person is not merely “awakened” about his or her own existence, but is fully aware and even spiritually attuned to the reality that we are not really separate from other living things around us.

Sure, we have our own individual ideas, egos, memories, and actions. So we are still individuated (which is a good thing); otherwise we wouldn’t even be able to talk using the word “I” (which some say is an illusion anyway).

But technically, when we talk about “I” we should really be talking about “we” because everything that one person does is reflected throughout the other conscious creatures and beings on our planet, so that even seemingly personal, individuated actions inevitably become “we” results.

This isn’t high-minded nonsense. It’s real. It’s practical. Allow me to give you an example.

Suppose a selfish, low-consciousness corporate CEO says, “I’m going to dump this toxic waste into the river because that saves ME money, and it makes ME more profits.” So he dumps the waste into the river.

Downstream, a billion living creatures start to become damaged by the toxic waste: the fish, frogs, turtles, trees, plants and perhaps even cities full of people who use the river as their water supply. This, in turn, creates “a disturbance in the Force,” as Obi-Wan described it in Star Wars.

The disturbance spreads sickness, disease, and dysfunction. That dysfunction inevitably makes its way back to that same corporate CEO; perhaps the mutated offspring of some woman who drank the polluted water grows up and becomes a violent criminal who car-jacks the CEO’s granddaughter and murders her in the process.

While the CEO will decry “how terribly violent our world has become,” he will disavow the truth that he poisoned the world and made it more destructive.

The violence that happened to his daughter was the inevitable result of his own acts of violence unleashed upon the world through toxic chemicals.

Even Individuated, “We” Share a Common Thread

From the point of view of universal consciousness, there is no “I”—there is only “we.” And WE are affected by everything that each one of us does.

If you take pharmaceuticals, you are contributing to the destruction of the planet because those chemical medications pass through your body and get flushed down the toilet where they chemically pollute the planet.

Someone who says, “I need these antidepressants so I take them” is really saying, “Screw the planet, I am willing to poison the world in order to try to mask my own symptoms of depression with a toxic chemical.”

So you see, the corporate CEO who pollutes the planet is not much different from the 40-year-old housewife who feels depressed and pops pharmaceuticals throughout the day.

Both are operating out of an illusory sense of what I call spiritual isolationism: the false belief that we are disconnected from our world (and from each other) and that we can do whatever we wish as long as it helps us in the short term, regardless of what it does to other living, conscious beings in the long term.

Such is the stunted point of view from which all deception is based. All wars, GMO contamination, government conspiracies and corporate poisoning of the people are conducted from this place of spiritual isolationism.

Spiritual integration, in contrast, is what you might call the process by which a person comes to a sense of self-awareness about the relationships between all living things.

“Awakening” is integration. It’s also the path of the Jedi, to use the Star Wars metaphor again, because it relies on using the Force as an ally in the protection of life.

The Spiritual (Jedi) Farmer

A woman who grows a garden is a spiritual farmer in that she gives new life to seeds.

When a plant creates a seed, at first that seed is just a biological machine held in stasis, awaiting the right moment to sprout. When a seed sprouts, consciousness enters the plant in the same way that a soul enters the developing fetus right after the moment of fertilization.

Both a human fetus and a garden seedling are conscious beings with a sense of awareness, a (limited) sense of self, a functioning nervous system, and increasingly complex awareness of their immediate environment.

The idea that plants have consciousness was accepted throughout many early human civilizations. The American Indians believed this, as did the Inca.

Native Americans believed the desert Saguaro cacti were sacred beings, watchers over the land. And when you're in the presence of these amazing beings, it’s hard to disagree.

Trees have nervous systems. Weeds in your back yard engage in social networking through the chemical transmission of messages about external threats.

A blade of grass may not have the physical brain of a human being, but it has what I call a “sliver of consciousness.” That doesn’t mean I feel guilty mowing the lawn, but it does mean I carefully consider my actions when altering any natural landscape, removing trees, planting trees, and tending the garden.

As humans, we are especially gifted with mobility that allows us to be caretakers for other forms of conscious life, including both plants and animals. We have the arms and legs that trees don’t (except in The Lord of the Rings). So we can move around, meaning we can create life (plant seeds), or we can destroy life (produce GMOs).

My point in all this is that the destruction of life always comes from a place of spiritual ignorance. A person who could callously and mindlessly destroy life (or poison the planet with GMOs, for example) is a person operating from a total lack of understanding about the consciousness that ties us all together.

When Israelis say they want to kill Palestinians (or vice versa), this is done from a place of giving in to the “dark side” of the Force—the seductive, destructive side, which seems powerful at first but is actually a sign of spiritual weakness.

To harm another human being, as the Buddhists say, is to harm yourself. Why is that true? Because underneath the individuation and the ego, there flows a current of connected consciousness like a river through all living systems.

To destroy life is to disrupt the flow of that river—an act that inevitably darkens your own reality as well.

There is no act of violence that is undertaken in isolation. All acts of both violence and compassion are reflected (and magnified) throughout the fabric of reality. This idea is echoed across all world religions, including Christianity.

Police State Fear Is Only Possible through Low Consciousness

An important point to understand is that no society has yet achieved the recognition of consciousness that exists throughout all living systems.

Our human societies remain in their infantile stage, operating from a place of individuated ego, and lacking the deeper understanding of connectedness that becomes obvious when the true nature of consciousness is firmly grasped.

War is the ultimate expression of disconnectedness. When one nation decides to murder the people of another nation, this is an act of extreme ignorance tempered by anger and wrapped in illusion.

Police states—like the one into which the USA is now descending—are the day-to-day expression of disconnectedness and ego.

Think about the whole message of the terror-driven police state: YOU might be a terrorist. So I, the TSA or federal law enforcement agent, must destroy you before you can destroy me. This is the philosophical foundation of Darth Vader.

Rather than working on ways to stop creating enemies (or ways to nurture peace, liberty, and prosperity), the police state government is intent on isolating and separating people, creating division and fear that drives people apart.

Whereas peace is achieved through the integration of cultures (i.e., western white people going to visit the mosques of Islam, to understand their culture better), terrorism is achieved through the spreading of suspicion and paranoia that drives people away from each other in fear while concentrating power into the hands of the “Dark Lords.”

This is the whole point of the “If you see something, say something” campaign that depicts white people, black people and brown people as possible terror suspects to be treated with total paranoia.

The government is in the business of lowering consciousness and creating division instead of peace.

Peace pulls power away from governments and puts it into the hands of the People. War and fear, on the other hand, keep power concentrate in the hands of government.

Love and compassion, on the other hand, are the vibes that raise consciousness and create mutual respect. Governments do not teach love and compassion because such concepts are self-destructive to governments.

The Way out of Terrorism, War & Government Tyranny

All this makes the pathway out of terrorism, war and fear rather obvious. You cannot “fight” tyranny and win with force. Tyranny thrives on the death, destruction and fear that go with any application of force.

Tyranny can only be conquered by people awakening to the greater truths about who they are, how they are connected, and how they all experience holographic fragments of the same stream of consciousness that flows through all living things.

The way to stop war, in other words, is to teach those who commit war so that they may realize they have been operating under the illusion of false individuation.

A cat might initially be scared by its own shadow on the wall (and it might attack that shadow), but once it realizes the shadow is simply an expression of itself, it recognizes the foolishness of fighting its own shadow—and calmly walks away.

On our planet today, when one nation commits murder (war) against another nation, it is fighting its own shadow.

The solution to such shadow fighting is not to “build bigger bombs,” but to raise awareness of the situation so that those involved realize the silliness of it all and decide to walk away, embarrassed at how childish their actions now seem.

The end of government deception, corporate conspiracies, never-ending war, mass murder, Big Pharma's poisoning of the world and even day-to-day muggings is found not simply in physical security, but in conscious awakening.

Does this mean you should stop thinking about self-defense preparedness and start meditating away all your problems?

Absolutely not. Until all the other people are also spiritually awakened, you must take prudent, practical measures to protect yourself and your family in the physical world.

But as you do so, strive to teach and exemplify an “awakened” course of action that avoids violence and encourages people to connect with the deeper, higher truths of who they really are (and how they’re connected to everything else).

Carry a stick, in other words, but use it to support your neighbor rather than strike him down.

2. Vision Quest (Crow Medicine)

Sol Luckman

No sooner had I left graduate school at the end of May, 1998, than I was on my way to a brand-new variety of education that tremendously broadened my horizons—while also imparting much life energy, or chi (sometimes spelled qi), to my depleted and struggling systems.

Qigong is an ancient technique of energy healing related to tai chi ... I had been put in contact with a gifted qigong teacher, an American also in his early thirties who, several years previously, had traveled to China to study this venerable art to cure his extreme chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS or CFIDS).

I did not travel to China. But after the yard sale of yard sales, I crammed my scant belongings into my car and spent two days driving nearly twenty-four hours from the East Coast to New Mexico, where my qigong teacher taught a popular class attended by as many as a hundred students three times a week at dawn.

I think of this transitional, challenging and magical period of my life as my own personal “vision quest” that, for the first time, opened my eyes to the often misunderstood and underestimated worlds of spirit and energy.

In many indigenous cultures, the vision quest is the form initiation takes and constitutes the transition from adolescence to adulthood. When the initiate is old enough for vision questing, he (or she) typically spends several days or weeks alone in nature, often while fasting.

Eventually, a particular animal, sometimes called the “totem animal” or “animal medicine,” visits the initiate in a dream, vision, or (more rarely) waking state.

The appearance of the totem animal embodying a specific spiritual power indicates the individual’s innate calling—which after returning to the tribe, the newly initiated young person pursues following a time of apprenticeship.

Curiously, I did not realize (at least consciously) that I was on any kind of vision quest. To be honest, I did not even know what a vision quest was.

I simply was living like a hermit in the windy, sage-covered high desert; eating the few foods my ravaged immune and digestive systems could tolerate; and practicing qigong often half the day because I intuitively felt I had to in order to survive.

Certainly, I had no awareness of being a shaman in training!

Now, anyone who has ever regularly spent half an hour “hugging the tree,” the primary practice in medical qigong, knows two things.

For starters, an enormous amount of bioenergy (chi) is pooled by maintaining this oddly difficult position between standing and squatting, arms loosely draped around an invisible trunk, eyes remaining calmly unfocused on nothing in particular.

The first time I experienced this powerful energy, it literally knocked me on my rear. I lay on the ground outside my rental panting for thirty minutes as waves of electric heat like cosmic hot flashes shook my body again and again.

This was the energy I ultimately used to strengthen myself enough to go on with my life. But I needed an entire summer of practice just to be able to accommodate it gracefully.

The second observation made by serious “tree huggers” is that in that meditative state where you are supposed to think about nothing, sometimes you successfully empty your head. But more often, you think about anything and everything.

Such was my case at first, but then an odd thing started to happen: every time I hugged the tree and aligned myself with the flow of spiritual energy, I thought of crows.

"Crow Medicine" 2012 © Sol Luckman"Crow Medicine" 2012 © Sol LuckmanEver since I was a kid, strangely, I had felt a strong affinity for crows, learning to imitate their caws and always appreciating their presence. But now, whenever I did qigong, crows were all I could think about. Not just that—crows started to appear everywhere in my life.

They circled raucously around me as I hugged the tree under the autumnal sky and perched beside me on my porch as I sipped herbal tea and wrote in my journal. Crow statues seemed to appear like weeds, suddenly and uncontrollably, all over my quaint little New Mexican town.

Almost every night, I dreamed of crows. I realized I was into the music of the Counting Crows. And when I started dabbling with watercolors, for the longest time crows were all I wanted to paint.

A fellow student in my qigong class, overhearing me describe my  weird fascination with crows, was kind enough to loan me a copy of Medicine Cards: The Discovery of Power through the Ways of Animals.

Turning to the section on Crow Medicine, I learned that in many native wisdom traditions, Crow is the totem animal, or “medicine,” that “knows the unknowable mysteries of creation,” guards holy texts, and upholds the sacred laws of being.

As keeper of the Creator’s linguistically based knowledge of creation, as recorded in sacred texts, Crow is gifted with the special ability to modify universal rules and “shape-shift,” both personally and collectively.

In other words, Crow’s innate talent involves knowing how to manifest new ways of living and being.

When shortly thereafter I was prompted intuitively to read a magazine article (featuring a crow graphic) on vision questing, I realized in an epiphany that for months I had been receiving visits from my totem animal!

Apparently, Crow was trying to tell me through its repeated cawing that my calling involved recalling that I knew something important about creation, holy texts, and sacred law.

Humorously, I visualized myself as a phoenix-crow hybrid, a jet-black bird engulfed in indigo flames, hugging the tree with my wings alight as I stood pooling chi in the middle of my ashes. I actually painted a little watercolor close to this description.

The only problem was, while the phoenix imagery was crystal clear, it was years before I was able to grasp the meaning of the crow part of the picture.

But eventually, as I came to fathom the true nature of DNA—which you will not find in biology textbooks, but will learn more about shortly—while developing Potentiation, I understood why Crow had come to me so insistently.

DNA is the language-based holy text, the sacred law of creation that Crow guards and shape-shifts by calling out its inherent potential through linguistic means.

In fact, as I explain in detail in Conscious Healing, the Regenetics Method very well may be an example of a type of ancient healing speech applied to genetics referred to in the Koran as the “Language of the Birds.”

3. 2012: A Clarion Call

Nicolya Christi

The year 2012 has the potential to be the most critical year in known human history.

As the all-important Winter Solstice of 2012 fast approaches, many are finding themselves experiencing a powerful and urgent need to understand, and engage with, just how they can contribute to what the ancient wisdom keepers have heralded as the “Great Shift of Ages.”

Many are now willing to commit themselves heart and soul to the successful manifestation of a new era for humanity—what the Hopi termed “a thousand years of peace.”

Many are inexplicably compelled to accelerate their own conscious evolution, knowing they have a role to fulfill during these crucial next years, most especially 2012.

All our energies now need to focus on the evolution of our own consciousness, and the supporting of a consciously evolving world that is progressive, not regressive and static, as is currently the case.

Focus on the manifestation of a new era for humanity—one which speaks to peace, sustainability, and freedom—must take precedence in our hearts, minds, and lives, if we are to constructively contribute to the imminent needed global changes that are now top priority.

The sweeping changes prophesied by ancient wisdom keepers, including the Maya, Hopi and First Nations Peoples, and confirmed by celestial activities, are upon us.

Our appropriate response, compassionate action and conscious involvement in creating necessary change for a better world for all are critical.

If we are to stand any chance of establishing lasting world peace and a sustainable future, we must unite and act now. We can and must midwife a new world.

Never before has our contribution to the world been more needed. Never before could our contribution make the difference between humanity stepping forward onto a new path of peace and sustainability, or remaining on an existing path of chaos and destruction.

And never before have so many been aware of the critical times we find ourselves in—and how 2012 stands as the watershed year for humanity.

To put it simply, there are two paths ahead, as predicted by the ancient wisdom keepers.

One path is the continuation of the current dysfunctional structure/system, which will eventually lead to a total breakdown of personal and collective Spirit, and pull humanity backwards into further dysfunction and chaos.

The second path invites us to unite and co-create a new global structure/system—a new world that is healthy, functional and primed to establish the “Golden Age” prophesied to emerge in these times.

We are now at the epicenter of a Choice Point. Which of the two paths will you choose? Each individual decision is now critical to the outcome.

Our preparation for and commitment to ensuring the effectiveness of our involvement in the co-creation of a new world paradigm are now crucial.

We have just ten months remaining before the Great Shift of Ages. The outcome is dependent upon enough awakened souls uniting and manifesting a new world that will emerge following the Great Shift.

The all-important question which confronts those of us who are awakened to the reality of these times is:

Will we fulfill the great destiny that is awaiting us?

We must each now strive to ensure the potential for such a reality. It is up to all who are conscious and aware to ensure the birth of a new epoch, a New World.

As the oft-used quote of these times—“We are the ones we have been waiting for”—so rightly summarizes, we must unite by the millions to midwife the birth of a new way.

The Shift does not exclusively speak to a shift “out there” in the world; it also points directly to an inner-world shift.

The outer reflects the inner. The outer is the macrocosmic manifestation of the microcosmic inner world of the individual, the group, and the collective.

Inner peace equals world peace. Self-love equals a world in love.

4. Intuition & the Flow of Life

M. J. Schwader

Albert Einstein once said, “The intellect has little to do on the road to discovery. There comes a leap in consciousness, call it intuition or what you will, and the solution comes to you, and you don’t know how or why.”

Intuition occurs naturally when you are living in a fluid way, detached from worries, “shoulds,” and strong opinions and belief systems.

The flow of life is a very simple pattern of movement. The subconscious is where inspiration is born. Where conscious and subconscious meet is what we refer to as intuition.

At that point we have a conscious awareness, an idea, or an inkling. As that idea grows in our consciousness, it begins to manifest into reality. Once manifested, our soul’s needs are filled and we begin the process again.

When we are at rest or asleep, our superconscious, or higher power, transfers new information and energy to our subconscious, and the process continues its cycle. This is happening all of the time in each of us.

That’s why I firmly believe that we can all be in the flow of life. However, when we come from a place of fear, we place layers of belief and filters of doubt in the way of manifesting the soul’s higher purpose.

We can choose to allow those filters to block the manifestation process—or we can choose to remove those blocks and allow the flow to continue.

Your soul’s higher purpose is to manifest your divine destiny. You can try all you want to alter the course, stop that movement, control the forces, fear the direction your choices might be taking you.

But, you must eventually reach your soul’s higher purpose; and when you step into that understanding, life becomes a flowing dance.

You have choice, and when the choice follows the path of the heart, obstacles disappear as if by magic.

Truly, the universe has ultimate influence, and you will eventually be given a reminder of the power of your own destiny.

The more you ignore your intuition and the signals it sends, the more you will struggle, and the more disease, pain and distress will enter into your life.

However, you can choose to:

• claim the moment

• let go of the expectation of an outcome

• understand your beliefs and the effect they have on the process

• remove the filters that keep you from easily manifesting your soul’s higher purpose

• allow the process to occur

Claim the Moment

One of my healing teachers and I were talking one day. I was proudly telling her that I had recently been learning patience through several “lessons” that had been appearing in my life. I was willingly taking on the assignments, although the episodes had been difficult and caused me various types of pain, both emotional and physical.

She stopped me at that point and said, "M. J., be careful what language you are using to describe these instances. The spirits live in the moment. They are not looking at what you’ve done in the past or what the future is. If you ask for patience, they will give you reasons to have patience. Instead, say, ‘I’m claiming the moment.’”

Language is powerful. What we say and think has a significant effect on how we move in and through our lives. What we tell ourselves is a huge part of how we manifest things and has a direct impact on our health.

I suggest to my clients that they do the following exercise for one day. I have them write a hash mark each time they catch themselves saying (aloud or internally) anything that comes from a place of fear or is negative, judgmental, or pessimistic.

At the end of the day, I have them count up all the hash marks. Even those who believe their communication is positive are amazed at how many times their language fails them.

When you find yourself fearing the future or agonizing over the past, say to yourself, “I’m claiming this moment.” It’s a reminder to stay present, release control, and exult in the here and now.

Why is claiming the moment so important to the flow of life? Because when you are in that place, there is no anxiety about the future and no regret about the past.

There is nothing but possibility, and the resulting feeling is joy. To truly hear your intuition, your heart brain, your destiny, the moment is all there is.

Let Go of the Expectation of an Outcome

Several years ago, as I prepared to go to my parents’ home for a family event, I was planning my schedule, making an agenda, and driving myself crazy trying to fit everything into the time I would be there.

I sat down and took a deep breath. The realization hit me that if I didn’t have to meet anyone’s expectations, the trip would be a lot more joyful.

Then I had an even deeper realization that if I didn’t have expectations, or an agenda, or even a schedule, the trip would be much simpler.

I decided to try it. I allowed other people to make their schedules, and told them that, if possible, when they let me know the time and place, I’d be there.

Even when it was last minute, I didn’t care. In fact, last-minute plans eliminated creating outcomes in my mind. I just showed up, with no expectations.

The result was astounding. I floated through the ten days filled with joy. There were no promises that might be broken, no drama from having made plans that someone else didn’t like. And with no expectations, I was never disappointed.

By the end of the trip, everyone was asking me how I could remain so calm and happy when things seemed to be swirling around my large and loud family.

After that experience, I started to do that in my day-to-day life. Spontaneity has become very fun.

When something comes up, I check with my intuition, stay present, and make the decision in the moment. Then I refrain from attaching expectations to the outcome, and as a result, am not disturbed by what might happen.

Understand Your Beliefs & Their Effects

What influences whether we listen to our intuition or not? Why do we deny our intuition and ignore the physical, mental and emotional signs along the way?

The greatest impact on our decision-making is our belief system. The influence on our beliefs comes from our experiences, whom we choose to listen to, whom we are sometimes indoctrinated to believe, and whom we might aspire to revere.

I recently heard an analogy by John Welwood in his book Love and Awakening. When you are born, you are given a beautiful castle with hundreds of rooms, each representing a part of your inner world. The rooms are perfect, and each contains a gift.

As a child, you explore each room with no preconceived ideas, no shame, no judgment. As you get older, you start hearing from others that certain rooms are not right, that you should lock them up to keep the castle safe.

Because you desire acceptance and love, you close a room. Then another, and another. You stop listening to your inner voice and instead believe the opinions of others. In no time, you are living in a one-bedroom house in need of repairs.

I believe that we are all born with the same amount of joy in our hearts. We each begin our life with openness and come from a place of love.

How we choose to respond to the voices we hear, the belief systems that are thrust upon us, will determine which rooms of our house we close and which stay open. When we come from fear, more rooms will remain closed. Love keeps the doors open.

Fear is not a bad thing, unless it becomes paralyzing. Fear can protect you from harm. It can also keep you from enjoying the flow of life. For some reason in our culture, looking for the good in things, being positive, being fearless, has become a negative thing.

Have you ever had someone say to you that you are not being “realistic”? What I want to know is why being negative and coming from a place of fear are more realistic than being open and loving?

According to estimates, ninety percent of what we worry about never happens. If negative worries have a ten percent chance of being correct, doesn’t that mean that being positive is more realistic?

The important thing to ask yourself is why it’s better to be fearful when you have a choice to be happy. After all, you have the same ability to choose love as you do to choose fear.

Remove the Filters

As mentioned earlier, one of the most powerful means of change is language. Another significant method is visualization.

Imagine the process of manifestation described above. What filters (some people call them Gremlins, or voices of fear, etc.) keep you from moving toward your purpose?

Picture them blocking the process. Then imagine yourself removing them, one by one. Take them out and allow the next moment to happen, without expectation.

Allow the process to occur, instead of trying to control it. Free yourself from limiting beliefs and the idea that you aren’t good enough.

Regain your trust—in you, the universe, and your purpose, your destiny.

Allow the Process to Occur

Control is an aspect often overlooked in the discussion of fear. When something negative happens to us, particularly at a young age, we seek ways to make our environment safe, or make others conform to our ideas, or maintain a semblance of order.

This need for control is a direct response to fear. In fact, it is the single most influential belief that compels us to ignore our intuition.

Allowing the process to occur requires letting go of the idea that we have, or more importantly, need to have control.

Is that need really serving you? How much energy do you expend trying to maintain an outward appearance of control?

When you get out of your own way and the flow begins to happen, you will see that all the energy you’ve expended on controlling the process or the outcome will begin to serve you, instead of blocking you from what you want in your life.

Let go of an outcome, remove the filters, and allow the process to occur. Your inner voice will guide you if you allow it.
