Wisdom with Wes – Higher State of Consciousness – 3-19-15

Snapshot_20140731_2The way into a higher state of consciousness is found with silence, strength, patience and perseverance. The path isn’t always easy, but at the same time, it doesn’t have to be as hard as we’ve made it out to be.

The more we’re willing to either ‘become nothing’ or embrace our creativity to the extent that it merges us with spirit, the easier and more free-flowing life will become.

We have an opportunity to drastically raise our consciousness, thereby raising the consciousness of the rest of the planet, and all we have to do is get out of our own way and utilize the tools we’ve been given to change our lives.

Connecting with our inner Christ gets easier when we consistently clear our mind and keep the connection intact, and we’ll eventually realize that we’ve been connected all along.

We’ve kept ourselves from realizing how connected we are with those higher aspects of our consciousness that inspire us and fill us with color and creative expression, and it’s time to stop hindering ourselves and, instead, explore our consciousness as often as we need to.

If we stay open, we’ll be endowed with a blissful perception and our outlook on life will reflect our inexplicable upliftment. All it takes is the willingness to keep the mind open and get out of our own way, and with persistence, we’ll reach the inevitable goal of full-on enlightenment.

Stay aware!

Wisdom with Wes – Why be Depressed? – 2-7-15 – ( P.S. , We Love You Wes, and Your Work for Humanity)

Snapshot_20140731_2I was bummed out for a long time yesterday (Friday the 5th) over things that have to do with the blog and the gradual decrease in views that seems to have taken place since 2012, and I let my sadness bring me pretty far down.

I had myself convinced I was doing something ‘wrong’ or I wasn’t doing enough to generate interest in the blog or the newsletter (I make my living from both of them), and I worried a lot about the future.

I was worried I wouldn’t be able to keep my family afloat if something didn’t change, and I spent the better part of the day victimizing myself and wallowing in depression.

My focus was nowhere near love, awareness or spirituality, and I let some ancient negative feelings come to the surface that I thought I’d already worked through. It took the re-realization that love is infinitely more powerful and important than abundance or recognition to get back to a centered and lively place, and once I finally realized this again, I catapulted back into love without a second thought.

I learned yesterday that if we let ourselves, we can pave over our love and replace it with stress or fear about our survival and our sustainability. It’s easy to let survival concerns replace our growing love and awareness since surviving is so important, but the results are devastating to the spirit.

Not everybody struggles with depressive thoughts or feelings, but some of us do sometimes and it can be hard to climb out of them once we’ve let them in.

I’m learning that we’ll have to be strong and go out of our way to re-reach that loving, centered, active place again if we want any degree of love, happiness or wholeness in this life, and I took something very valuable from my experiences wallowing in my self-created negativity yesterday.

I’ve learned that instead of getting upset about something (like not having enough views on the blog), we can stay positive and work even harder to achieve our short and long term goals.

This blog will eventually pick up more than it already has, and being upset over something that can’t be helped at the moment is as effective as doing nothing at all. Plus, it makes you feel worse!

Accepting the situations we find ourselves in is more helpful than getting upset about them, and with acceptance, unconditional love and sustained activeness, we’ll realize how infinite we really are. And we’ll do it without the self-created negativity that’s hindered us so much in the past.

Will you accept the situations you face and/or try to improve them with a balanced perspective?

Wisdom with Wes – Strength and Selfless Service – 1-2-15

Snapshot_20140731_2It’s easy to feel like life asks too much of us sometimes, but it helps to remember that we’re on a mission to use our centeredness and peace of mind to try to better the lives of others.

As difficult as it can be, we’re here to see through our own needs and into the needs of others.

We don’t have to make ourselves miserable trying to keep other people happy, but we can stop focusing so much on ourselves and remember to take other them into consideration.

If we can lovingly and unconditionally serve others and remember to keep things interesting for ourselves, we’ll be impressed at how positively we impact everyone’s life. We’ll enjoy life more because we’ll have done a lot of good, and things will obviously be better for the people we help.

Balance requires the ability not to impulsively flood ourselves with emotion when the cards seem stacked against us, and even when we think we’ve found balance, something can come along and take our inner peace right back from us. External situations can only zap our light if we let them, however so we’ll have to stay diligent when we face situations we just don’t think we can handle.

Along with remembering that we’re here to serve others, diligence in the face of difficulty will help everything flow more smoothly.

Will you stay strong and balanced today?

Stay aware!

Wisdom with Wes – An Active Weekend – 1-31-15

Snapshot_20140731_2We can use the weekend as a time to rest and let ourselves be a little lazy, or we can take it as an opportunity to be even more active and enthusiastic than usual.

It’s easy to give in to the temptation to rest when the weekend comes around, but it might be more worth our time and energy to increase our activity.

Some people want to rest on the weekend because it gives them a break from the oppressive or mundane realities they constantly face during the week, and they enjoy having the freedom to do whatever they want. There’s nothing wrong with this greater freedom, and in fact, it’s something we all deserve to enjoy – not just on the weekend, but all the time.

With greater freedom can come greater responsibility, however, and to get the most out of life (and, specifically, our weekends), we might want to continue to be active, even when resting sounds like a better option.

We’re learning about the benefits of staying active and keeping as positive of an attitude as we can no matter what we face, and staying active during the weekend might increase our vitality throughout the week.

If we break out of our shell and go out of our way to be active on the weekend, it might give us more incentive to reclaim our freedom and stay active throughout the week. Like all things, we have the choice as to how we want to act, and no greater force can make us choose a specific path.

Everything’s up to us, but certain choices will help us feel better in the long run. I think staying active is definitely one of those choices, and we can embrace it if we feel motivated enough. If we do, we might make life more fulfilling than it was when we were comfortable being lazy.

What will you do this weekend?

Wisdom with Wes – Unconditional Acceptance – 1-24-15

Snapshot_20140731_2It can be hard to embrace certain spiritual concepts if we’re worried we won’t be accepted by others, but we don’t need to worry about it anymore.

If people are unwilling to accept us for the things we believe, it says more about them than us and we might be best to let them keep their distance.

In order to truly empower ourselves, we’ll want to find people who love and support us no matter what we believe – not people who’ll only accept us if we think the way they do.

Close-mindedness is one of the biggest obstacles on the spiritual path, and even if it means turning away from relationships with people who don’t accept us for our way of thinking, it might be worth it in the end.

We’ll eventually find people who are willing to love and support us no matter what we believe, and those are the best kinds of relationships that we’ll want to cherish the most. Similarly, we’ll want to make sure we accept others for who they are instead of trying to mold them into who we want them to be.

Will you give (and seek) unconditional acceptance today?

Stay aware!

Wisdom with Wes – Creative Benefits of Exercise – 1-16-15

Snapshot_20140731_2I’m sure I’ve written a lot about exercise, and that’s because it’s a great way to keep the blood pumping and the spirit flowing. If we ever have trouble with our creativity, exercise (or something else that gets us moving and excited) might be the answer.

We’re all different, and what works for one might not work for another, but I’ve noticed that getting some exercise before sitting down to write works wonders on the creative flow.

Even though it isn’t the sole answer and we might have creative trouble even if we do it, it seems to help things flow more easily and smoothly. Everything is easier when we’re in an uplifted frame of mind, and this is why we’re continuously encouraged to get up! instead of staying down.

I think we’d all benefit from staying active, and I’ve noticed that laziness tends to deplete my creative flow and my willingness to contribute. We always hear about the benefits of being active, but actually experiencing them is a whole other story.

It feels great to stay active and uplifted, and I plan to stay as active as I can in hopes that it continues to uplift me and, hopefully, all of you who read these articles. I can’t recommend exercise or another uplifting activity enough, and the difference between an active, enthusiastic perspective and a lazy, dull one is like night and day.

The latter seems destructive to the spiritual path, whereas the former seems to encourage creativity and spiritual growth.

Exercise seems to lighten us up and help us sufficiently express ourselves, and together with an open mind, it’ll show us the way back into our own consciousness, where so many perceptual wonders are waiting.

Will you uplift yourself today?

Wisdom With Wes – Transcend Limitation – 12-29-14

Snapshot_20140731_2I’ll go along with the theme of today’s Oversoul Teachings message and encourage us to transcend our self-created yet illusory limits.

We don’t have to keep ourselves from doing the spiritually inspired things we’ve come to earth to do anymore, but transcending our limits will require some serious effort.

Breaking out of our shell and trying new things can be hard, but we’ll find that it was all worth it when we accomplish things we never expected to.

It seems like you have to work hard to achieve anything notable in this world, and we might have to push ourselves a little if we want to transcend or even expand our limits.

We might have to face challenges and experiences we’d rather hide from, but we’ll know in the end that they enabled us to step into a more refined, authentic version of ourselves. This ‘version’ of ourselves is very spiritually aware, and yet, it’s rooted to the earth in a true display of balance and mastery.

We can embody the archetype of the progressive spiritual seeker, but it might require the willingness to continuously challenge ourselves. We’ll meet a lot of difficulty at first, but in the end, we’ll have accomplished more than we ‘failed’ at.

Will you confront your limitations today?

Stay aware!
