Show Notes Transcript

Failure comes when you do not commit to your purpose.  

You allow yourself to doubt, second guess your abilities, distractions arise and you follow them like a bright shiny object, you don’t listen to your intuition or even take the time to listen and the worst of it all…….you don’t commit to your purpose and highest self.  

Give yourself the freedom you deserve, be committed to yourself, your purpose, your soul.

From our soul to your’s.

So last week. We talked about the vision right? like getting the vision seeing the vision and then how you play out the vision this Week. We're talking about being committed to the vision I think that this is a huge huge area. That maybe we don't take serious enough or maybe we just sort of say oh yeah, I'm kind of committed to that or maybe we don't even bring it into our Consciousness. We don't even think about being committed to yourself. We talked about that before though being committed to yourself. But now it's.

03:01.59
Amber Mengenhauser
Um, yeah.

03:12.60
angelablaha
A step further or a step deeper and being committed. Not only to yourself but to your purpose. The real reason why we're here. Um as a human race and how and being committed we have to be None committed in order to shift our consciousness. And so that's what we want to talk about this week is the commitment. So what? what happens to you Amber when when that word is brought up like what happens to your body. What happens to your mind where where do the emotions go.

04:07.33
Amber Mengenhauser
Well well just even listening to you talk about this. You know we've kind of chatted a little bit about this lately and I you know I don't think we all. We all carry a little bit of fear of commitment but we don't really realize that we are and we both wanted to do this? Ah ah I don't really want to call it a project but we it was we wanted to. Talk about the commitment and what we're committed for. You know our purpose are everything that we want to do and I really kind of had a hard time with it and I was just like what is your deal with this like why do you not want to.. It's not that I didn't want to do it. It's almost like I I didn't know what I wanted to commit to so I'm like okay. Why Why am I doing this but after sitting with it and really like questioning myself on why I was actually procrastinating it and I didn't really realize that it was the procrastination. It. It actually was the fear like. Okay, if I commit to this I have to hold myself accountable for this and everything that comes with it. You know it's not just a fear of commitment. It also comes with ah a little bit of am I going to be successful doing this am I going to be great doing this am I going to be really bad at doing this what if I can't hold to my own commitment. You Know. So I think it actually kind of made me go on a little bit of a rollercoaster on. Okay, what do I need to change within myself to be able to commit to commit because our ego can't help but bring in all these fears Like. What if I'm not good enough. What if I commit to this What? What if I don't quite make it or what if it changes or what if I don't do it right? and I got really stuck in the like in the what if I can't do this and so it was super weird. But. I Think that goes along with a lot of the stuff that we've been talking about you know the ego does come in and it does try to talk us out of this and it's like no I know exactly what I need to do and what I need to commit to to be better at fulfilling the purpose I'm here for.

08:48.32
angelablaha
I Think that that's that's the huge important piece of this whole thing is in the past I think we've taken commitment as something that maybe it isn't like the when we're talking. About being committed it means that you're here to literally fulfill something that's bigger than you are and I think that's when the ego comes in and says Nope you're gonna fail because you can't live up to that God self You can't live up to that that. Perceived expectation of being as a big you can't be your own Healer. You can't be your own. You know we've been programmed about these kinds of things for None right? And now here we are in this.

10:23.99
Amber Mengenhauser
Um, yeah.

10:37.18
angelablaha
Beautiful energy in this level of consciousness that says yes you are and yes you can and yes you will right? and we are still sitting back saying? Yeah I don't know right? I don't know if I could do that I don't know right? and all the doubt comes in the distractions come in the.

10:47.89
Amber Mengenhauser
Yes.

11:15.12
angelablaha
Chaos comes in but here's what I've learned is that if you don't commit to your highest self and your purpose your mission for being here. All there is is chaos and we've experienced chaos in our purpose.

11:39.39
Amber Mengenhauser
Yes, yeah.

11:50.62
angelablaha
And this big giant picture that we're here to Fulfill. We've experienced the chaos and not being committed allows that chaos to come in and to be manifest versus if you're really committed committed to yourself. Committed to your purpose committed to the shift in Consciousness which is what our big vision is then there is no chaos. There's no room for it because you're just holding that focus you're holding you're you're literally holding the energy and of the focus. And there's no room for Chaos. There's no room for Doubt. There's no room for worry or anxiety or judgment right? There's no room for it and we have experienced the evidence of having the vision I mean all of the clients that we have the people that come into the eatery. The. Like people that come into the apothecary like they are all just like on Board. We don't get the criticisms any longer. We don't really get the we do get some of the chaos from us creating the chaos. But we don't but the. Outside Chaos isn't even present I Think that's like I think that's a key to knowing that you're on the path or on the right path or that you can you can be committed is the evidence around you.

14:17.65
Amber Mengenhauser
Completely grieve.

14:52.74
angelablaha
Like the evidence before when you had you know beliefs to clear away or emotions to get under control or you know,? whatever, whatever the clearing was before you could see the chaos be manifest outside of you because you're projecting that. But. When you're sitting and you're holding the focus of your purpose of your path and your vision your whatever it is. You're holding that focus all of the people around you. You're no longer projecting the chaos into the world. You're no longer projecting projecting your doubt into the World. You're projecting it within yourself. I think that that's where the scary part comes in is because you actually have to look at what you're doing your behaviors your mannerisms your thoughts your emotions. How connected you really are to your own consciousness. Um, I think that that's where the projection comes in and that's where the fear comes in because it's not, You're not seeing it outside of you any longer you're actually seeing it inside. You.

16:52.23
Amber Mengenhauser
Um, yeah I Totally agree I think that some of the fear too is just um, the unknown portion of it that I haven't experienced before too. You know that's scary for everybody and. Yeah, you have these great big, amazing visions. But your mind wants to take it to the how how do I get there. How do I do this? How do I do that and that is one of the things that I think. Being a beginner in the Journey. You always question the how and getting caught up in the how it actually ruins all of your flow and even when I was trying to figure out Okay, like what what area in my life. Do I need to commit to to be a better. To be better at what I'm doing and the minute I did it. It was like how do you do this? How do you do this? How can I do this to change this and and I totally got caught up in the how and it I couldn't even figure out what I needed to commit to.. It's it's like I did but I didn't because I questioned every area that I was doing and I think that the word commitment alone just it almost is like for me it is like it. In a way gives up my freedom you know because and this this is I think relating to my past and just you know it's It's that that word whether it's not really it means something different on many different levels but the.

19:59.28
angelablaha
11 and.

20:31.29
Amber Mengenhauser
In my past that word was not a good word for me. But now in this present moment I do need to work through that word because it's not like it's a bad word for my past, but my commitment from the past I couldn't I never fulfilled my commitments and. And I don't think it was that um, like not necessarily fulfilling them. But they. They always changed and I always wanted to leave myself open for more so I felt like if I committed to something I was gonna like miss out on something else.

21:53.42
angelablaha
The fear of missing out boy that's a big programming in our societies and we don't even give it much thought we just know that we want to be around somebody who's successful or we want to be you know in a career that.

22:09.77
Amber Mengenhauser
Um, yeah.

22:31.20
angelablaha
Looks like it's successful. But you said a really interesting point and I think that this is where a lot of people myself included the fear like it. It gives up your freedom.

22:42.45
Amber Mengenhauser
Um, and.

23:02.44
angelablaha
Commitment being committed you lose you. We have this perspective that we lose our freedom when if we actually turned the table on that and said okay well I'm going to commit None to my vision of shifting consciousness. But we know that when we shift consciousness. There's more freedom because our thoughts aren't programmings. They're actual weight what works for me. Our emotions aren't programming. They're wait. How does this feel are. Connection to our highest self our soul self our spirit our god self isn't a programming. It's the real deal. It's like you feel like you are that right? like you feel that you can heal yourself you feel that you can like be in control of.

24:32.73
Amber Mengenhauser
Um, yeah.

24:50.32
angelablaha
Um, your addictions you feel that you that you are in control here and when you're in control of yourself of the way that you think the way that you feel the connection that you have to your highest self then all the behaviors become very free. It's the behaviors that keep us stuck. Keep us from being free because our behaviors will lead us into the um into the addictions. Our behaviors will lead us into not eating clean, healthy food. Our behavior is what will lead us into. You know, using drugs or using alcohol or using people. Um, you know though, it's the behaviors that keep you confined and the ego 100% rules the behaviors and so when we talk about freedom I think we need to like. And I think that this comes from a very ah in my world. It comes from the word commitment comes from a religious commitment I'm committed to my partner for life I'm committed to you know serving. God for life I'm committed to serving my family for life. It's very much connected into that Hierarchio kind of um factors you know that we were all kind of raised with particularly in the country that we live in. And so when we're talking about freedoms. We have 0 freedoms in governmental decisions right? now we have 0 freedoms in um, you know how we respond to the pressures or the rules. That are being forced onto humanity right now. This is one of the atrocities that I just oh I just I'm not here I'm here to reverse those atrocities and we have 0 freedoms if we look at our lives right now where where are you free.

28:59.39
Amber Mengenhauser
Yeah, you're not you know you said something that really stood out and I think that is exactly what this is and that it's in a way you know we both grew up in in the church and. Commitment part of it. You said it perfectly is you know what we were taught is that commitment was to serve others and so it totally makes sense why you feel like it strips your freedom. But. Commitment after like going through all of this and even talking about it. It commitment is something totally different. It's actually a commitment to yourself to nobody else not to serve anybody else not to do anything for anybody else.

30:31.96
angelablaha
Um, yeah.

30:49.25
Amber Mengenhauser
It's a commitment to yourself to be better.

30:59.48
angelablaha
Well, it's a commitment to your soul self and when we bring in the soul self that creates a wholeness right? It creates a sense of like I'm whole now and but we don't have experience in being whole.

31:02.10
Amber Mengenhauser
Yes.

31:34.92
angelablaha
That's where the fear is we don't have experience in being whole and when we are whole we are a hundred percent free and so we think that we're going to be stripped of freedoms. But actually we're we're given more freedoms because now you're not, you're not following a program. You're not.

31:54.35
Amber Mengenhauser
Yeah.

32:11.20
angelablaha
Feeling that program the the intensity of the program you're looking at it and saying yeah, that's not really how it is. You know, like like you're using your own knowledge and wisdom which is part of the None powers of the soul right? You're using your own power to assess. Everything that happens in the world and you feel like you're an outlier at that point because it's like you're not going with the rest of the sheep. You know you're not going with the rest of what humanity believes is a truth and you do feel like an outlier you do feel like you're out here by yourself. And I think that that's where but it's so free out here that we don't know how to handle the freedom. We've talked about this before like we don't know how to handle freedom real freedom. We know how to handle freedom that somebody else tells me I can be free with like I can be free with the way I think but I can't.

33:42.49
Amber Mengenhauser
Yeah, to.

34:06.22
angelablaha
Speak the way that I think right? That's not freedom but yet that's the world we live in I can be free with my thoughts and my you know the the creativity but I can express it. That's not freedom.

34:31.53
Amber Mengenhauser
Um, yeah.

34:43.10
angelablaha
But that's the world that we live in right now you know So So when we think about Freedom. We're not free. We are not free and until you actually move into being committed to your highest self to your that giant purpose. That's when freedom comes. But again, how do we handle? freedom.

35:31.77
Amber Mengenhauser
Yeah I think Freedom actually is one of the hardest phases I went through in my journey hands down beak.

35:48.80
angelablaha
Um, yeah, and at this point of living the vision. The freedom becomes deeper and deeper and deeper. You know we're still clearing things out of our consciousness right? We're still clearing things out of our.

36:08.27
Amber Mengenhauser
Yeah.

36:27.16
angelablaha
Our real mission here and when you get to the level of living the vision those the things that we've cleared out become so deep like there's such a depth to the to the wisdom of it. It's almost that I think is almost scary for a lot of people because like wait. It's total opposite. It ends up being almost total opposite of what we thought we knew and when we shatter that about ourselves like there's ah, there's a fear that comes in that says well not what. What do I Do you know and we can get that's that place. That's that Plateau where we can get stuck in I don't know what to do So I'm just gonna hang out here in the nothingness and but getting stuck in the nothingness is a real deal. Um, and it's.

38:09.21
Amber Mengenhauser
Yeah.

38:18.98
angelablaha
That is a scarier place than actually being free with your thoughts and actually being able to express them.

38:31.33
Amber Mengenhauser
I None agree with you when you're in that place you you literally have no feeling for anything you have I feel like you have you have no emotions you have no drive. You have you have nothing. You're literally like it's so freeing that all you can think about is just like your mind every but everything else around you like almost comes to a complete stop in a really weird way.

39:41.32
angelablaha
Um, but I think that we get to glimpse freedom Real freedom when we're in that space because in freedom there there is no thought there you know in real freedom. There are.

39:56.30
Amber Mengenhauser
Yes.

40:15.26
angelablaha
Like the emotions are very much under control in real freedom like you're motivated only to do what is in your highest purpose in real freedom like there's not all these distractions you know and the motivation comes from.

40:31.21
Amber Mengenhauser
Yeah.

40:54.10
angelablaha
Deep within you like you're only motivated to do what will serve you right? and when you're serving you, You're serving your highest self but it can be very scary there because we don't Yeah, we don't have memory of that experience. But it's so free. But so then so then what happens is we create something right? so that we can sort of Jolt ourself out of that space and get back to some sort of what we believe to be normalcy which is in the mass consciousness that's kind of where we're at that's kind of where humanity is right Now. It's like. Okay, well we had this huge distraction of you know this virus thing. Well now what now? What do we do? now you know and a lot of people are are in this space of I don't know what to do I Just don't know what to do anymore and that can be.. It's a very scary space when you're in that.

42:29.49
Amber Mengenhauser
Um, yeah, totally.

42:46.84
angelablaha
I Don't know what to do I have nothing, you're shifting your consciousness in that space is really what happens is you're getting rid of all of the old programming you're clearing out your own psyche and now you're starting to move into a creation space of.

42:46.23
Amber Mengenhauser
Yeah.

43:02.91
Amber Mengenhauser
Oh.

43:25.84
angelablaha
What do I get to create That's where if we actually just focused on the real purpose of why we're here and we actually commit to it. We would leave that space much quicker.

43:49.95
Amber Mengenhauser
You know I think that starting to wonder if I'm still in this free space a little bit. But yeah.

44:12.60
angelablaha
Ah, it's okay to be in there I mean you know and we move in and out of that space too. So.

44:25.91
Amber Mengenhauser
But I think the creation that comes out of it. That's just it. That's the most rewarding part of it is you can create things that your mind cannot even fathom. You know you're just like where did this even come from. But I think that's where people get stuck with it too.

44:53.84
angelablaha
And he.

45:05.55
Amber Mengenhauser
Is you know you have this amazing idea that comes in and you can't even wrap your head around it. So How can this somebody else wrap their head around it. But maybe it's not for anybody else to wrap their head around. Maybe it's only for you. Maybe that is for you to. Come up with this new amazing thing and people just kind of disregard All of those downloads that come in because it's just like an an idea to them. That's so far out there. How can How can we actually accomplish this but but that's actually where it's at.

46:18.80
angelablaha
Is.

46:18.75
Amber Mengenhauser
And and that is where the commitment comes in where it's like okay I see this I I got this vision this this is the component that I need to do today. This is the next step this is next step and it's in it. That's how it goes and that's how you build it. You don't figure out everything. Right? At none on how you're gonna do the whole thing we had no idea you know we're still figuring things out as we go and every day we create something new. Something new, something new and that's what it's about that is what it's about people get so so caught up in that. How can I create this magnificent thing.

47:05.64
angelablaha
Of.

47:21.80
angelablaha
Love is.

47:36.79
Amber Mengenhauser
But that's you can't just have a start to finish step by-step instruction book on how to get there. It don't work like that every step you take you get None more instructions every step you take. You know your in your intuition is just downloading all these instructions to you and until you reach that step. You're not going to get them that you're not going to get the next download you have we have to reach every step to be able to get there and the commitment with it is. It's very scary for people to look at.

48:29.98
angelablaha
Um.

48:49.73
Amber Mengenhauser
The whole picture and be like oh my gosh I can't do this. But if we just focus on the separate right now. That's how it gets bigger and bigger and bigger and bigger.

49:13.52
angelablaha
Um, at the same time that you're focusing on the step right now. So here's here's the thing if we focus on the how we're gonna fail because that's the energy of where we're moving into. There is no how in the future.

49:28.45
Amber Mengenhauser
Yeah.

49:49.20
angelablaha
You know if I'm going to literally look into the future. There's no how there's just you following your intuition which ultimately leads you to the giant purpose and everything all of that giant purpose can be fulfilled in 1 lifetime if you want it to be.

49:49.73
Amber Mengenhauser
Now.

50:22.10
angelablaha
You know there's this whole reincarnation thing coming back and fulfilling your purpose over and over and over is just garbage I mean that that stuff is again in the past and we don't have to do those things anymore that was ah another programming that came in that said well if you don't fulfill your purpose this lifetime then you have to come back and do it no. That's not true. That's a belief and it's a lie. So but when we do focus on the how I were well I get from my own experience I can tell you it will make you fail because. Now we're in times and energies of following the intuitive knowledge because it's the intuitive knowledge that brings you to fulfilling every single tiny little aspect of the big Picture. We're no longer putting puzzle pieces.

52:05.85
Amber Mengenhauser
Yeah.

52:17.88
angelablaha
And trying to fit everything into the big picture. That's not that's not the way the energy is anymore. It's you follow that purpose you follow that intuitive hit which creates the puzzle piece. There's no how here it creates the puzzle piece and when that piece is fulfilled. You move on to another. Puzzle piece and so there's no more how do I get this piece to fit. That's not how where that's not how the energy works Anymore. It's no I'm going to follow this intuitive hit until it actually manifests and then I can move on to another piece into another avenue.

53:24.85
Amber Mengenhauser
Yeah.

53:35.12
angelablaha
But you know when we look at a giant picture if we're looking at the picture of the earth.. There are so many minute details of the earth and you have to fulfill each one of those details in order to create that big picture. It's not an updown way of looking at things any longer. It's really the down up of looking at things and which is the reversal of what we've been taught. So You know this whole thing about being committed is if we commit to the giant to the purpose. To the big mission to the giant Picture. We're committed to that then all that needs to be is. That's where the focus needs to to reside the stuff that we're on right now needs attention and commitment. Yes. But I'm not sure that it's if we if that is where we hold the focus. We're very limited in the viewpoint you know what I mean does it need attention. Absolutely do we need to focus on the attention of it absolutely. But if we we also need to be like very.

55:37.75
Amber Mengenhauser
Yes, yep, yep.

56:04.48
angelablaha
Dynamic in our focus and we need to have several focuses going at the same time but the giant picture always needs to be in the focus because if we lose that if we lose that then commitment goes out the door.

56:16.50
Amber Mengenhauser
Yes, I completely agree.

56:32.85
Amber Mengenhauser
Yeah.

56:42.14
angelablaha
The house starts to come in and then we're gonna fail so we always have these fear failing you know, but what's failing and who's gonna judge me for failing me.

56:44.90
Amber Mengenhauser
Yeah.

57:10.52
angelablaha
I'm the only one that can judge me for fail like you're right? Everyone else can gossip about that. But it's not only true.

57:07.81
Amber Mengenhauser
And honestly you sometimes though you have to fail to be not not like fail at the big picture but some steps you will fail at because.

57:29.28
angelablaha
Yeah, yeah.

57:46.35
Amber Mengenhauser
They don't fit into the vision. They don't fit into the big picture but you try to you try multiple different things to to figure out what what is working? What is it working. What is the next step.. What can we create Now. It's a constant process and is. Every single thing you create gonna be off the charts. No come on this is reality. You know we're about telling the truth to everybody and everything is about a step some steps are amazing. Some steps aren't as amazing but you know what. They all have the same vision in the end and we all have to jump a few hurdles to be able to figure out and produce the big vision.

59:25.44
angelablaha
I think that I think that when we um, fail um I think that that's where we follow the ego and we're not actually following the intuition. It's It's a very different game when you're following the intuition. There's no.

59:41.93
Amber Mengenhauser
Yes.

01:00:03.52
angelablaha
Real failure and I don't want to say there's not really failure. It's like it's like we you you follow that stream of consciousness until it ends and then there's a yeah.

01:00:02.43
Amber Mengenhauser
I know I did really want.

01:00:22.77
Amber Mengenhauser
Yes, and there's something you needed to learn from it where is some some learning component within that I didn't want to use the word to fail because it it doesn't fit but I didn't really know how to what other word like.

01:00:39.12
angelablaha
Exactly.

01:00:59.69
Amber Mengenhauser
Would get the attention of that's what it is. You know it. It isn't necessarily a fail but it is um, a learning experience that needed to come in for you to have to be able to go further.

01:01:04.80
angelablaha
The.

01:01:28.00
angelablaha
Yeah, and when we have those kinds of failures or learning experiences like it clears a pathway. It opens you up it clears a belief it clears an emotion it clears. Ah an atrocity it heals you when when those things happen.

01:01:36.81
Amber Mengenhauser
Yes.

01:01:53.70
Amber Mengenhauser
Yes.

01:02:04.20
angelablaha
We have to look at the healing component of when we do have a failure or learning experience. What's the healing component here. You know we're so focused on oh my God I failed again you know and then that whole drudgery of self-judgment comes in. But if we actually looked at the big picture of that. And we just said Okay, well, what's my experience where did I learn and what did I clear here. It's a whole different experience of failure it it clears you up for something new.

01:02:54.59
Amber Mengenhauser
Yeah, totally agree. You got to. It's about how you view it. Everything is about how you view things. Yes.
