Allowing is such a beautiful and powerful skill!
It is an attitude we cultivate on the inside.
It can sound very passive. On the contrary, it is a very active way of interacting with all of life, both our inner life as well as the outer life.
Allowing may sound simple, but it is not easy.
Allowing leads to listening. https://mouninabounaaly.com/listen/
Before this diagnosis of MS, I did not know anything about allowing!
I was all about resistance! I am learning to allow!
Allowing is saying yes to life.
Allowing is accepting what is.
Allowing is loving what is.
Allowing is receiving what is.
Allowing is opening to what is.
Allowing is welcoming what is happening.
Allowing is being non judgmental towards what is and realizing it is not good, it is not bad: it simply is.
In a deeper sense, allowing is raising our consciousness.
Allowing gives us our power back!
It invites us to realize we are at the center of our own experience.
We are not victim of it nor guilty of it.
We are 100% responsible for it.
In no way does it mean we want it to be that way forever, or that it should.
It simply means it is that way right now.
We don’t have to like it. It is just easier if we do.
“Life is simple. Everything happens for you, not to you. Everything happens at exactly the right moment, neither too soon nor too late. You don’t have to like it… it’s just easier if you do.” says Byron Katie, author of Loving What Is.
Allowing is the opposite of resisting.
“What you resist, persists” said Carl Jung.
Nature knows no resistance.
Allowing is the opposite of fighting against what is.
Allowing is what requires the least effort!! 💗
I have infinite gratitude for Marie Lise Labonté who introduced me to this powerful way of being!!
Allowing is the opposite of arguing with reality.
No amount of arguing with what is will change what is.
What is simply is.
Our conditioning (our family, our culture, our society) can keep us from allowing, accepting and loving what is.
Our conditioning is the unconscious part of us.
Today I know that allowing is the magic key that opens the whole magic of this universe!
Only when I allowed my whole world to fall apart did everything start to change.
Allowing opens the doors to healing.
Allowing opens the door to transformation.
First we allow, we accept.
Then we realize this is here to teach us something.
This is here to show us something we where unconscious of up until now.
As scary as this might sound, we trust that if it is happening, we have everything in us to deal with it. Only by accepting what is happening can we move forward and grow with what is happened. The only way out is through.
From the simple act of allowing miracles follow!
Do you know you have the power to create what can seem like a miracle? 💜
