Show Up and Get Out of Your Own Way
The only way to get truly great intuitive information is to show up and get out of your own way.
What do I mean by this?
Your ego has this idea that you are a limited, finite human being with access only to information that you have acquired the hard way – by reading, studying, practicing, learning, listening to others or what you have been taught in school.
Your ego has this idea that you are an island.
The truth is at a soul level you are an unlimited being with access to all kinds of information.
You can know everything you need to know if you only can set your ego aside and see, hear, feel and know from the guidance of your soul.
When I was studying medical intuition, one of my teachers used to say, “Show up and get out of the way.”
What did she mean by this?
- Show up. Be fully present. Be in your body. Pay attention. Open your eyes, listen deeply, feel what’s going on. Be in the now.
- Get out of the way. Set aside what you THINK you know. Let go of every fact you think you have learned. Accept this truth, a truth your self-empowered little ego doesn’t want to admit: you don’t actually know anything. Be open to what is, to way things actually are – not what you project them to be. Stop projecting your prejudices, emotions, fears, insecurities and disabling limiting beliefs onto yourself, the world and other people. Accept that nothing is the way your mind perceives it to be. Allow.
I remember years ago during an especially stressful life-transformative experience, I turned to one of my dearest friends and lamented, “I realize I don’t know anything!”
“Congratulations,” he replied.
“That’s a sign of deep spiritual growth.”
Our ego clings to our so-called education: what we learned in school, our academic degrees, the workshops, the books we have read, the seminars we have attended, what the newspapers say, what people report on the social media, what our neighbors think, what the polls say, what the scales say, what we think other people think.
Beyond our little minds, however, lies the vastness of our souls.
Your soul is connected to all souls everywhere.
We can pray to access the deep wisdom of our soul.
Here is a prayer you can say when you are wanting to get out of your own way:
Heavenly Father, Dear God, Universal Source,
Thank you for guiding me and blessing me all the days of my life.
I am asking you to help me now.
Please assist me in setting aside my ego mind.
Please open the eyes of my soul so that I may see what my soul perceives.
Please open the feelings of my soul so that I may feel what my soul feels.
Please open the ears of my soul so that I may hear more deeply beyond what is said.
Please allow me to know whatever it is that I truly need to know in this moment for the benefit of all living beings for the highest good.
Thank you for blessing me.
Please lead me to truth, beauty and all that is good.
Thank you God, thank you God, thank you God. Amen.
When we show up and get out of the way, we are beyond our fears, beyond our prejudices, beyond our projections and we are able to perceive life for the blessed event that it truly is.
Sometimes when we see, hear, feel and know from this perspective, the truth we perceive is actually the opposite of what our ego thinks.
An event that appears a great tragedy is actually a blessing.
A hurt is actually a nudge in another direction.
A wound is actually a place where we are to deepen ourselves to become our greatest strength.
What is healing? Healing happens when we recognize that the world our ego sees is a world of projection. The world our soul perceives is a revelation of great truth, love and beauty.
May we all begin to perceive with our souls and set aside the fears and insecurities of our egos.
