Daily Inspiration for the Soul...7 ways to Innovate for Evolutionary Success

Submitted by Open on Wed, 11/25/2015 - 17:36

I think there's a huge misunderstanding about the purpose of the soul, and with that, life itself. I put it to you, that the soul is an expression of the One - of pure presence. And it's purpose is to actualise the One in every moment - as an expression. When you hit this sweetspot of life, without needing it to go a particular way, then you channel the enormity of the universal flow through you. It shapes things you couldn't possibly have previously imagined. But you have to let go into it, and here's the challenge: genuinely not needing a specific outcome; instead, giving yourself wholeheartedly, 100%, without reservation to the path that naturally wants to happen.

The power of making small incremental changes

And the changes you make, the inspirations you unleash, don't necessarily have to be enormous ones to make a real difference. Take diet for example, we've been exploring intermittent fasting on Openhandweb, and the incredible amount of energy this can unleash, because the body isn't having to work so hard to digest food all the time. Not only is it good for the body, but also unshackles consciousness from constricting inner processes - you can expand more into higher dimensional consciousness.

We've been encouraging the exploration of intermittent fasting, meaning to limit eating to a defined period during the day - reducing to just 6 hours (and even towards just one meal a day). It gives the body greater time to heal and integrate, but especially, it encourages the emergence of soul, by being less consumed within internal physical processes and density. The change if often quite remarkable. Although you will have to overcome cravings, there unleashes a greater sense lightness and relaxedness - the sense of interconnectivity can greatly increase. The sense of universal flow intensifies.

7 ways to innovate your day, to empower your evolution

I feel the earth energies changing quite strongly now. I can feel the karmic construct of the old paradigm beginning to unwind and consciousness flowing into the new one. It's a flow we can each ride. We can do that by innovation - making small changes to our daily patterns. Here are some key ones that are worth considering and I'm sure will help...

  1. What's the first thing you do when you wake up? It's essential to set the tone at this very moment. If even only for a few minutes, just sit yourself up, breathe, and feel the connection to your soul, and the wider world - open the window, immerse yourself in the birds' morning corus
  2. Before beginning to eat, cleanse the bodily system with a warm herbal tea, which is also likely to stem any hunger pangs for a while
  3. Each day, take at least 10-15 minutes out to do deep consciousness bodywork: soulmotion for example, gentle stretching and yoga, or bringing your awareness into your core with something like pilates (10-15 minutes per day would be the absolute minimum - with two or three weekly sessions lasting at least an hour)
  4. Continually refine your diet - incorporating more plant based eating and as much live (raw) as possible. Be mindful, that as your body shifts, you will have to confront mental cravings... try this breakthrough approach for working into the cravings, totally feeling into them and unwinding through them...4 step Breakthrough Approach
  5. Innovate your routines: simple things like changing the route you take to work; how you spend your free time; where you go walking or where you like to hang out. Spend as much time "free wheeling" as possible - simply ask "show me", then follow the pull - watch what signs and synchronicity show up.
  6. Reduce time with technology - connection is great, of course, but be clear you're getting maximum value from your time and not simply 'comfort-viewing'. Stop, take time out for meditation, go deeper within, penetrate any resistance and soften through... try using this Openhand Bow Meditation
  7. Do something creative, just for the fun of it: creativity can unleash new aspects of soul - music, drumming, painting, drawing, dance, blogging and vlogging. It doesn't matter a jot how successful you might be in an outcome sense - just go with what moves your soul for the fun of it. 

Progressive innovation - the key to success

So I'd say the key to successful change, leading to the integration of soul and thus accelerating your evolutionary growth, is through progressive innovation - making plenty of small changes to the general routines of life that we so easily slip into. Then before you know it, you've made some great leaps and bounds. It's with this in mind that we produced the Openhand video inspiration called "Innovation". Take 5 minutes out, watch and ask, "how might it inspire my evolutionary change this day?"...

In loving support

Hey Hey,

Oh that squirrel is just to cute! Gets me every time I see it!

 

Ditto for me too lately with the fasting. I find myself getting to the point where my I just let my body tell me I'm hungry and in need of sustenance, instead of just .. Oh its noon, time to eat something. Mostly I prefer to let my entire being just tell me what it is that it needs.

 

Lately I've needed an extra dose of cranberries, but the ridiculous thing about that is this area I live in and the stores only sell them as a seasonal food such as late autumn and early winter. So I did what I could do, I opted for pure cranberry juice. This is not something to drink straight up, its very shocking. But the shock made me laugh, so I tried another drink that way and decided nope. This is no good, time to get innovative and add something to it like bananas and blueberries. Bottles of pure cranberry juice should come with a warning label!! It should read – warning, you might be shocked upon drinking this stuff.. take it slow!

 

My experience though with number 5. is it loops until somewhere deep inside myself and the entirety of my being fully comprehends exactly what I have been shown. This really is a tedious thing I put myself through and why I do it is just ridiculous. It reminds me of a very old cartoon I saw as a child, where a person kept picking up sand from one pile with a pair of tweezers then looking at the minute grain of sand before setting it down onto a new pile. Only to go through the pile of sand in this manner before the last grain is picked up then turning to the new pile and starting all over again.

 

I just really needed to relearn a new yet old way to let go of the moments show me so this morning I just let go and I found myself painting with my left hand instead of my right. This is profound! But yet the moment I became aware of what I was doing and how precise my painting was is the moment my left hand went shakey again. Yet I kept at it, and the more I accepted my left side painting the easier the painting went. Therein lies my answer too! Sometimes the most innovative way is to just let go. Find that spot within where everything is just quiet and allow myself to breathe. Now I need to just write myself a memo that says remind yourself of these things every morning so you don't wake up one day and say OHHH yeah, I remember now, that's how you do that. Oh and tell Open thank you for the reminder here! So Thank you!

'Create but don't worry what the outcome is ' 

This jumped out at me today ( even though I have read this article before ) . In my meditations I often see these beautiful images  - I can almost feel the art insideof me and yet fear of it turning out to be crap ( I am such a horrible artist !) Keeps me from channeling that into canvas . 

And yet that's the point isn't it. The fact that I'm holding onto a thread of soul and allowing it to express it's little tendril from beyond the void into the light of day . To allow the force of that creativity within to cause a ripple in my own body mind . 

Hmmmmmm.......

Time to paint it would seem !

Hi Megha - it's similar for me and music!

Yet I keep working with it and something noticeable starts to emerge - but always its the gentle inquiry with it that yeilds much of interest.

Wishing you well with it

Hi Megha and Open, 

I can empathise with it to some degree. Nowadays when I play the guitar and sing, I get all manner of tunes coming through me. It's is if I'm expressing beingness through it. Most times it has no structure -  it just flows according to what I'm feeling and the emotions and how I'm moving within it. Yet when i feel it turns to something good, there is attachment to an outcome and I disconnect from the flow. When I try to record it or play in front of other I lose it. I believe I'm horrible at writing lyrics so its just that - I can't produce it into some outcome but still I enjoy it a great deal. I think the universe will only show the next level when I have learned to surrender into what I already have. At least thats how it has been moving for me.

Really loving the video too. Having to innovate big time as a baby I am treating has a weird condition that hasn't been treated with all the drugs we have thrown at her. And (even more amazing) is that I am going to try and do something new - going to try to treat her with a diet . It will need a lot of innovation on my part. And yet, I find the Universe regularly does this. Puts me in these situations where I have to stand on the edge and literally make a bridge with all I have . I really love my life and suspect it's because of these edges I regularly am called to traverse. 

 

At all times in these situations I have to recall that I am but a small cog in the vast machinery that the baby's circumstances are. And in doing so I let go control . And yet ,being the small cog I am ,I cannot let go of my responsibility . Do do what I can with as much heart and love and intelligence as I can muster . 

 

Felt called to share !

Hi Megha - you have a big heart Heart

You said...

I know exactly what you're talking about - I'm out at the edge plenty myself too - working to create bridges into a vast complexity of realities. It's okay - let the Universe expand the boundaries a degree.
