The Essence of Paradigm Shifts

‘The Essence of Paradigm Shifts’

I’m forever fascinated by our journey to self improvement, development and mastery. One of the aspects that stood out for me recently was the energetic transition surrounding certain realisations, and the ease with which we are then able to embrace new changes.

Why for instance, certain decisions to help us to improve our lifestyle, or advance us on the self mastery journey hold for longer than the others, some becoming even permanent, and others are only transient and illusive?

At what point, our decisions to quit a destructive behaviour become permanent and allow us to shed the past without looking back? And what makes us more resilient in the transitional stage to the temptation of going back?

I think this has a lot to do with the energy of realisations: the very shift in energy that occurs at the core, gently guiding us onto a new trail of action.

Being on a certain path not another is governed by numerous factors. Some related to karmic debts, the others to our chosen lessons. At some point a transition takes place, a shift that helps us to exit a destructive path and embrace the self renewing journey.

New awareness or shift in paradigm encompasses a lot of tinny steps which have an accumulative effect. This is where all those little attempts at self mastery and improvement become so crucial. They all bring us closer and closer to the moment where the shift occurs and prevails.

At every step we build and strengthen our awareness, even though we still continue to fail miserably. Even though we may be well aware of dire consequences of our actions, there may not be enough strength to stop us.

However none of those attempts ever go to waste. It appears that once certain threshold is reached, the awareness simply overcomes the egocentric reasoning, and a positive change can take place.

My very fascination lies in this precise moment when the shift takes place. A new fresh momentum gathers that allows us to transition into a richer energy field, creating a protective buffer that carries us through until the change becomes the new norm.

Illusively, all of a sudden, the very things which were impossible to achieve or stay away from only yesterday, today are becoming things of the past. With this new awareness, our focus shifts from trying to quit to trying to crystallise into our reality, that which is already with us energetically.
