Encarta gives the definition of EXPANSION as; “The process of increasing, or increasing something, in size, extent, or scope. Act of expanding: the act or state of expanding, opening, or spreading out.” Also interesting are the synonyms listed: growth, development, increase, extension.
It is said that the universe is always expanding. It is in constant movement, growing and developing and thus it is the same with you! But…what exactly is expanding? How are we growing & developing? WHAT is increasing when we do expand?
Depending on the teacher or coach I’m sure there are many angles to ponder, however, for this blog I want to explore what is increasing and expanding for you as an individual and spiritual being. 1. YOUR AWARENESS 2. YOUR SPACE!
“We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.” T.S. Eliot (The Four Quartets No4-The Little Gidding)
On each spiritual journey we are exploring as we grow. All this exploring does indeed expand our universe! We each have a universe to explore but it is NOT outside of us. It lies within and expands out!
As you explore your inner self you are increasing your awareness of WHO you really are and discovering your truth. The more you explore all that is YOU, the more you begin to recognize the energies, thought patterns, illusions or programming that is NOT!
By becoming more aware of yourself, the old patterns, energies and illusions will begin to fall away allowing you to bring in even more of YOU! Therefore, increasing awareness of YOU is the beginning of the expansion!
OK, you are increasing your awareness and bringing in more of you so what happens now? Well, all that inner transformation begins to “spill over” to the space around you. The energy space around you is your AURA! This is your SPACE.
When you fill up your space with YOU, your own personal, unique universe is expanding! You start to become or rediscover that you are indeed the master of your universe. You are growing and developing as a being which in turn allows you to expand WITHIN the universe.
The more of YOU in your space, the more you open your mind and allow in new wonderful experiences! You are able to create more and to have manifest your deepest desires. Your truth gets uncovered and shines around you lighting your way for more exploration!
Once you discover who you really are, you will begin, as T.S. Eliot said in The Little Gidding, to “know the place for the first time.” In other words, to see yourself and all that you are in a whole new light! Shine your light!~Debbie
