Definition of Awareness from Wikipedia -
Awareness is the state or ability to perceive, to feel, or to be conscious of events, objects, or sensory patterns. In this level of consciousness, sense data can be confirmed by an observer without necessarily implying understanding. More broadly, it is the state or quality of being aware of something. In biological psychology, awareness is defined as a human's or an animal's perception and cognitive reaction to a condition or event.
These are some of my favorite quotes on Awareness:
“Waking up is not a selfish pursuit of happiness, it is a revolutionary stance, from the inside out, for the benefit of all beings in existence.”
~ Noah Levine
“The Universe contains three things that cannot be destroyed; Being, Awareness and LOVE”
~ Deepak Chopra
“Awareness requires living in the here and now, and not in the elsewhere, the past or the future.”
~ Eric Berne
“Awareness is like the sun. When it shines on things, they are transformed.”
~ Thich Nhat Hanh
I know 4 quotes is overdoing it, but they all have a specific message that is important-so thanks for bearing with me!
My definition is “Awareness is the key to our truth.”
~ Marinna Rose
If you are wondering why I am discussing this, I feel very strongly that awareness is the first step after you tap into your courage to activate your personal power!
“Awareness is the state or ability to perceive. “This is a very powerful statement! Our perception is reality. I will repeat, “Our perception is reality.” So if you are not taking the time, allowing yourself to be AWARE in the moment, then you are not being present…therefore perceiving without awareness! This means that you are not controlling your reality! When you only live above or below the frequency of AWARENESS then your perception is formed by how others have chosen to accept reality. Your only connection to reality is what others believe, because on these other frequencies you cannot connect to what you believe, what is true to you. Which then allows you only to live in someone else’s perception of reality! Trust me, YOU are not here to live your life based on someone else’s perception! That is not going to serve your higher purpose.
We must take the time to become AWARE. I know in the world that we live in, it may seem impossible at times with the busyness of our lives and constant contact, but nothing is impossible when you live in AWARENESS! All that is meant to enter your life comes to you organically when you live in this frequency. You start to have serendipitous moments regularly. You feel more joy and are at peace because in AWARENESS we become part of the Universe, as it is already part of us.
From living in AWARENESS the decisions we make are based from this foundational Universal connection. Amazingly you start to see that your happiness comes first, you stop saying yes, for example, to please everyone else based on fear of their disappointment and judgment or the filling up of their void. You have a better understanding that it is not our job to make others happy or worry about how we make them feel.
You know that you are in vibrational alignment with AWARENESS when you choose to make others happy on your own terms not based on fear of disappointing them. Coming from this place is where you begin to see beyond yourself.
The famous “I don’t even know where to begin, so I never began…” or “I am so overwhelmed I have just stopped, I can not get one foot in front of the other” I get it! I have been there plenty of times. It can also be “It’s not my fault that I am having trouble…pointing the finger to everyone else” so many statements are true when we are not living in awareness. SO let’s be aware of the confusion, the overwhelm, whose fault it is, whatever your story is for this very moment….ahhh let’s sit with that.
Better yet, let’s meditate on that. Asking yourself
- Why am I in my story?
- Who am I in my story?
- Why am I feeling so confused?
- Why am I overwhelmed?
- Why is it their fault?
- Why is it my fault?
- Who’s fault is it that I am at this place in this moment?
Asking questions that are prevalent to you at this time. The answers are in the question, as you ask your higher self these questions, be patient and wait for the answers. They will come, it may not happen right away, so be ready for it to be delivered throughout the day. The universe has a sneaky way sometimes of allowing the answers to just show up in our awareness! No pundit intended! LOL!!
All that we ever need or have needed is here already. All we need to do is start turning the dial of our radio antenna’s searching for the frequency of AWARENESS. So, what I am alluding to is; radio antenna’s are really our personal vibrational energy, we need to get that in line with the vibrational energy of AWARENESS and Walla kazam!! Think of it like magnets, you do not have to be perfectly aligned for them to connect, just have to get them started in the right direction and allow inertia to kick in!!
It’s really that simple!
Take your power back and CHOOSE your own perception of reality, not someone else’s!
