Mind, Consciousness, Accepting Change – There are times when the Mind and Consciousness will naturally shift; this occurs with accepting change. The Mind and Consciousness shifts frequently when we go through a life crisis. But what is the Mind and the Consciousness? The Mind is that part of ourselves that we identify with as our everyday thinking patterns and the Consciousness is that part of ourselves which determines how well we perceive things that are closest to our sense of truest Self. When there is a crisis in our lives, the everyday Mind and the Consciousness will shift; it will move in a direction of thought that is quite different than what we are used to. This shift is usually perceived as painful, but in actuality, it is this shift that will discontinue the current pain and create a new space to allow the person to move up and forward in their lives. This creates less painful experiences in their future. There are no guarantees as to how painful an experience can be. However, to shift an experience from more painful to less, one must be open to accepting that change faster rather than slower.
Accepting change and learning how to navigate through a difficult truth will quicken the shifting of the Mind and Consciousness together, that way the experience does not have to be so painful. Many will refer to this concept as: “Letting go of the Past”, but the phrase “Acceptance of What Simply Is” would be a more accurate description. Many will try to fulfill empty dreams without first realizing their truest nature. Realizing your truest nature involves accepting where you are currently at in your life; accepting what you can or cannot do; accepting that improvements may be needed in education and training to get to the next level of advancement and be willing to face that challenge. Accepting yourself where you are now and allowing shifts in your Mind and Consciousness to occur will allow you to experience your life with less painful memories. Your Soul can handle anything if there is a willingness to change and bend with newly discovered realities. There are no guarantees as to how painful a life experience can be for someone, but to allow new discoveries to come in will ease the adjustment and bring one to well-being a bit faster.
