Commit to Yourself First

written by Maggie Sale Ostara, PhD

Do you ever forget who you are? Or forget why you are here?img-forget

It seems odd that this would be so—and yet this is so common. It may be because you knew, when you agreed to come into form, into this form in this life, that you knew you were here to be up to something important. Not necessarily important like becoming president or leading a major social movement—although those are possibilities. But important like this is a potent and intense time—and you and your brilliance are needed. And you knew that that would true, although you didn’t know what that would mean for you in your life and what it would feel like to actually live through it.

So what happens is that you forget. You get more connected to the outer world, the activity and intensity and chaos of what is going on around you. And you forget. I think all of us do. I know that I do.

Because of that you have to decide that it’s important to remember. Commit to yourself first. And then take action in order to remember. I am including a written meditation you can use to help you remember—my New Year’s gift to you.

Take a moment to scan your body noticing the sensations that are present there, scanning the emotions, the emotional tone that you’re bringing to this moment in time to this particular experience. Take a breath to expand your awareness to be able to meet and accept whatever is true for you in this very moment knowing that all parts of you are welcome here: all aspects of your being, all the elements of your experience, who you have been in this and every other lifetime.

Whatever is alive for you is welcome here. Breathe into your heart and open deeper and deeper into the soul level, into your soul aspect. Call to that part of you that is eternal, that is vast, that is your individual expression of source energy to be more and more present with you here in each passing moment. Knowing that this will unfold for you in the perfect way and in just the right fashion. You are safe to allow this unfolding to take place. Seeds are now being planted, some of which will sprout immediately; others of which will lie dormant until the time is right for them to come into life and to grow within you and to support your evolution, your contribution, all that you are here to be in this particular lifetime. Because you matter.

You, your vibration, your unique energy signature, your contribution, all matter. You are here for a reason. You are here to be a part of the shift that is happening on the planet here now. You chose to be here with all the intensity and the complication, the confusion and uncertainty at times.

You chose to be here at this time of vast opportunity when all is turning over and the possibility of creation is greater than it has been for millennium.

You are an important part of that.

You already know deep in the core of your being that you are here to help the healing of our planet through just being you and being willing to show up fully as who you are and to offer the gifts that are yours to give.

The scale can be of any size, any magnitude. What matters is that you come all the way in, you agree to be here. You agree to let go of the conditioning that would make it unsafe or uncertain. Other people’s voices from this or any other lifetime that would hold you back from the full flowering of your being, that is what’s before you. Each day, each New Year, with each breath, you have the opportunity to be here fully. To commit to your SELF fully.

Affirm for yourself: “The more I agree to be here, the easier my life becomes.”

Take a big breath right into all of that, right into your heart, into your belly and into the core of your being—into the part of you that knows exactly what I’m talking about and that is longing to have more and more, a bigger space in your life.

Call Light to yourself. Allow it to wash over you. Your head, shoulders, back, legs. You don’t need to know how to do this. Part of you already knows. Your intention is enough. Light is the finest substance in the universe from which all things are made—the first movement into form of the great unmanifest. Breathe in Light. Illuminate your cells and senses. Surround yourself with Light. Feel your Soul’s Light all around you.

Breathe into your heart and open to a deeper wisdom that lies inside. Allow your breath to open your consciousness even more. Allow what lies inside you to come forth, and know.

Know yourself. Be yourself. Commit to yourself.
