As you likely know by now, I’m a bit stuck on the word “evolution”. Even as a young child, I was almost obsessed with how things grew and couldn’t get enough of Darwin’s theory of evolution. My mother humored me with these passions, allowing me to grow carrots in a wheelbarrow that she dubbed as my personal garden. “Specimens” from my prized crop (carrots that were about 2 inches long….) remained in the freezer until they could no longer manage the elements.
I will never tire of talking about evolution. While I’ve moved on from growing miniature produce, I will forever immerse myself in learning new ways to help others expand their souls to their highest potential.
Conscious evolution is just that—becoming and remaining conscious of how we can best grow, then taking action to make change a reality. While scientists say that the human body has evolved about as much as it is going to, our soul’s evolution is infinite. What does this mean for you and I? It means that, if desired, we can continue to grow beyond our everyday challenges so that we thrive throughout every moment of life. By aligning our lives with the needs of our soul, we can reach radiant living—or at least create a much more joyful and content experience of the human condition.
Evolution is a process. It requires patience, perseverance, and commitment. That’s why I can’t provide an answer when clients ask me how long it will take to complete therapy. For those who believe in reincarnation, as will be discussed in future newsletters, evolution of the soul is clearly an ongoing development. We are presented with lessons throughout each lifetime to help us learn and evolve, sometimes repeating patterns until we outgrow certain circumstances or dynamics. In the case of this lifetime, our evolution is still up to us.
As cliché as it might sound, awareness really is the first step. If there is something that you want to outgrow, whether it be an unhealthy habit, an old relationship pattern, or a thought or feeling that no longer serves you, we must first become aware of this imperfection, identify any obstacles to change, then take steps to get our evolution underway.
