I received a question the other day:
“I have some fear that when I align with my desire and the universe will change my outer reality, that this process will not be pleasant for me because my current reality is very different. Can you point me to a post on this topic? Thank you.”
I’ll start out by suggesting probably the best post I’ve written on this subject, about 2.5 years ago: Are You Allowing Your Goals to Transform You? Of course I’ve developed quite a bit of other theories and techniques since that time, but it largely still holds true.
But now to answer the question itself, I think it’s something many people fear.
Will the process of change be unpleasant? It depends. The bigger your goal is, the more change is required.
How can you tell how big your goal is? By how scary it is to you right now. It also tells you how far away you are from reaching it.
But the “unpleasantness,” as it were, is generally not on the outside, unless you’ve let things get out of control a bit. Most of it is contained to your own inner state— your own fears and other resistances that arise in response to the goal.
Putting it in the context of what I’ve been discussing lately, it’s the process of ascending to your Godhood— one could say the process of Dark Ascent.
In that process, all that is not of your nature as a God must fall away. All fears, all limitations, all limiting beliefs— all must be burned away to make room for the reality you have willed.
Transformation is always a bit frightening. But what will determine your success is whether you are willing to face it or not. Are you willing to plumb the depths of your subconscious to eradicate all that is not in support of your desire? Or would you prefer to remain in your comfort zone, getting the results you have always gotten?
That, ultimately, is your choice. I’ve had many clients who weren’t able to let go of their desire enough to change from the inside, and thus they failed to attain their goals. And I’ve had many who gladly did the inner work necessary, and quickly reached their desired outcome.
If you’d like to learn more about becoming the God of your reality— that is, the predominant creative force of your life— I’m extending the sign-up period for the Circle of Darkness by one more day. I’ll be discussing this exact topic, and more, in this month’s issue of the newsletter, but you only have until the end of the day tomorrow (July 8) to register for it.
