The subject’s been coming up a lot for me lately.
It seems I am being schooled in the Art of Alchemy. I’m being taught about my ability to transmute that which is undesirable into something worthy.
I am learning to understand the power of what I don’t want.
I don’t want it… and that’s okay
Sometimes I can be too open to the possibilities… Sometimes I can be a bit too eager to accept what’s being given to me.
The Truth is some things aren’t good for me to open to. Some things being offered aren’t meant to expand me. Some things aren’t given to me with the best of intentions.
If I know I don’t want it, I’ll know not to accept it
I can not afford to be open to everything. Accepting into my life what I don’t want causes me to contract, grow small and get quiet. That is not what I want for my Self.
It’s important I learn what I don’t want to take in, so when it is offered to me, I can choose not to receive it. I can better make choices that leave me open to expansion, and secure from contracting forces, when I know my own boundaries.
In keeping out what doesn’t work, I can claim that space as a place to discover what does work for me.
