All shallow roots must be uprooted, because they are not deep enough to sustain you. – A Course in Miracles
When I think about shallow roots I think about my relationship to money last year. From January to December of 2011 I was determined to reformat my relationship to my finances.
When 2012 hit, it was as if the veil I had become so accustomed to wearing was lifted and abundance began raining down from the Heavens.
Our shallow roots stem from the ego.
I’m not good enough. I’m too old. I’m too young. They won’t take me seriously. What if my dream just isn’t possible? I’m unlovable. Happiness is easy for other people, just not me.
These are shallow roots. They keep us misaligned with the highest version of ourselves. They are the wall between the ultimate experience of miracles in our lives and where we are now.
When I look back over 2011 and all the things I did to help shed the unworthy conversation I was having around my dollar bills it amazes me at how little I actually had to do to allow abundance in.
Our human brains tell us we must work hard to achieve something and on some levels – hard work does pay off. However, it is not always necessary and when it is, it doesn’t feel like work. It feels like passion, come alive. Not work.
In the case of manifesting forgiveness, abundance, love, healing – first and foremost we must be willing. Everyday. Be willing to forgive. To let go. To love fully. To experience abundance at it’s most joyous of levels.
Figure out the action to take after that. And you know what the great thing is? It doesn’t matter what action you choose to take. As long as it is in alignment with your highest intention, it will get you where you want to go. At exactly the perfect moment.
