Shifting From Scarcity To Abundance
When we are healed from our defenses we naturally affirm our creative nature by taking risks and expressing ourselves without fear. When we shift into non-defensive action it opens us up to a greater creative presence â€¦ our creative nature. Particularly, we affirm our capacity to respond and take appropriate action without conditioning or pressure. This means that we shift out of negative motivations such as Excitement, Intensity and Anxiety and into positive attractions of Aliveness, Wisdom and Awareness. Instead of being scared, we question and challenge ourselves to be better. One way of visualizing this transition is based upon our animalistic survival needs versus our more rational creative contribution. We can simplify this as choosing between Scarcity to Abundance. We can validate this shift when we start thinking about how can we get as much as possible for ourselves (Survival Consciousness) versus how we wish to contribute to the larger community around us (Creative Consciousness)? Our mission statements are the basis of building a creative contribution.
We learn how to engage this shift by creatively exploring our circumstances. This permits us to grow and overcome old belief systems. We now see how our defensive beliefs have created a rut in our thinking processes. These beliefs were initially constructed to warn us when things are unsafe or insecure. Over time, we establish a comfort zone about our world so we do not go beyond a certain point where we might not be able to come back without being changed irrevocably. This becomes our â€˜ring past naughtâ€™ which now describes our defensive perimeter. This outer wall can be around our thoughts, feels and emotions or thoughts and sensations; whatever we believe is our core identity. Within our defensive perimeter is either our negative motivations or our positive attractions. The more we circulate Excitement, Intensity and Anxiety the more we are operating in our animalistic nature, where we feel compelled to fight for what we want. Our goal is to heal or defensiveness, so our creative consciousness can emerge.
We experience defensiveness as competitive drives to prove ourselves through beauty or power, so we have some options. This control perimeter is how we maintain the illusion that we are at the center of everything. Our drive to survive and succeed is only modulated by our fears or desire for Safety, Security and Relevance. Our personality programming is a self made space we retreat to whenever we feel overwhelmed. We build our defense based upon attachments, positions, and projections from the debris of what did not work in past relationships. The whole purpose of a defense is to protect us from the reality that no matter what we do, we are not in control. Our defense perimeter may make us feel in control, but this is an illusion. We also have one to three wounds called Objectification, Subjectification and Idealization that reflect distortions in our perceptions because of our coping mechanisms. These areas make it difficult to perceive the world effectively. Outside our defensive perimeter we always question what we can do and how we can do things to increase our sovereignty. Acknowledging our Creativity can free us, but it also goes directly against our safety and security programming.
When we step past our comfort zone and experience the freedom of not limiting our thoughts or patterns of response, it is exhilarating. We discover natural capabilities and gifts that we are not required to prove. The more these come together and build an inner fire that transforms our nature, the more we are able to engage from a knowing that is based upon Being. While we integrate our Mental Body and Secondary Creative Expressions with Our Primary, we see how much of our design was based on Safety, Security and Self Importance. Safety was the outer envelope that supported us in becoming more intentional. Security was the deepening agent showing us there is much more to us then we knew. Self Importance supports us in seeing our own failings and limitations. Each of these phases is a maturing process, until the defense is ready to be eliminated. We need to develop a heroic protector, so our creative qualities can coalesce.
When we are not defensive, we no longer modulate or manage each of our modalities: sensations, feelings, emotions, and thoughts. Instead, we combine them to increase our consciousness and energetic complexity. Healing our defensive wounding can make strengths out of our previous distortions, letting us see things anew. This opens is up to new experiences and we begin to see things in a more holistic way. From this we develop a greater degree of flexibility and fluidity when dealing with others. We see ourselves as responsive rather than reactive. We possess the freedom go beyond our previous defense perimeter and no longer subscribe to pre-emptive upper boundary limits. We do not limit our thinking in terms of our conditioning or defensive identity. Instead we know ourselves as creative beings who have a part that seeks to provide a measure of safety and security.
Having a commitment and motivation to continually move forward is essential to healing our defenses. We need to accept that every defensive idea is an inertia trap. The more we recognize these traps easier it is to continue to flow and explore new possibilities. Momentum allows us to relax into our creative nature. Sporadic movement reinforces defensive tension. This means we need to become more comfortable with movement. Attachments, positions, and projections slow down movement and minimize creative flow. While self affirmation is critical to consistent forward progress, learning to not believe our past defensive fears or desires is the key. Aliveness, Wisdom and Awareness maximize the connection to our Creative Self and increase our ability to relate to others.
As a creative source we are able to connect to the Universe and explore new domains without worrying about what others think. Having a creative choice empowers not only what we do but how we interpret our experience. Being able to deconstruct and experience and then re-create it demonstrates our natural creative gifts. If we are able to change our experience at will: Why can we not modify our beliefs so they are supportive rather than restrictive? We need inclusive thoughts that support greater unification between people. We also need clarity of purpose and organization that prioritizes what is important. CNG is another creative answer for reducing reactiveness. In a CNG, we create a separate space of unity so our aspirations or possibilities can be honored. Most of the time, when we do not create a space for possibilities, defensive thinking predominates and we lack inspiration or hope that things can get better.
We are also realistic in knowing that our personality cannot provide our complete safety and security. Defensive patterns always attempt to minimize the outer impact of events upon us. We accomplish this through repulsions, denials and distractions. This keeps us from finding balance in each moment. We end up creating artificial frameworks as a way to buffer ourselves from turbulent experiences. As we become conscious, we look for the truth and deny these buffers so we can get to the real experience and deal with it. Once we embrace the present, we learn to anticipate and predict likely problems on our path so we can creatively address them. We use Pregnant Duration to shift our experience of time, which allows us to examine multiple options simultaneously. This allows possibilities to emerge rather than relying just on our ability to discern the right choice. This is how we become the author of our own life.
Some would say that we are fearless but actually, we know how to consciously put our fears aside. Guilt, Shame, and Blame no longer have a hold on us. This means others cannot manipulate or intimidate us. It takes the capacity not to react. We need to create a space within ourselves so we can question and dissect all reactions as they occur. As we discover the source of each reaction we free ourselves from the self-limiting beliefs that caused them. We explore what triggered us and we make the connection between this moment and the original source incident. How we restore our creative Power is to focus on the current moment in time. This is the point of power, where we can actually change the future by making a new choice. How we respond will determine the kind of life we will manifest.
