Toltec wisdom is based on three masteries: Awareness, Transformation and Intent. They work together and will help you create a life that is filled with wonderful serendipity, magic and miracles. At first I thought since they were called masteries, I would master one and then move onto the next. That couldn’t be further from the truth.
These three masteries remind me of weaving cloth on a magnificent loom. Each one supports the other and when used together create a beautiful tapestry.
Often awareness is the key to change. Once we are aware of what we have been doing and decide we want to do something different (setting our intent) we can transform our experience of life.
Once I became aware of the fact that I create all of my emotions by what I tell myself about the events in my life I had the ability to change my thoughts rather than trying to get them out there to change. Not only does that work a whole lot better, it is much easier with just a bit of practice.
When I began meditating in the 70’s I had no concept of spirituality. When I was a little girl my dad had told me there was no God. He ridiculed any mention of God so eventually I decided spirituality was only for ‘weak fools’ just like my dad had taught me. Now I know that I am a spiritual being having a physical experience. That awareness alone has changed my life tremendously.
Here is an exercise from my book Mastering the Toltec Way that I find most useful.
Setting yourself free
Our beliefs are shaped by our filter system, which in turn hold us as its prisoner. What belief is worth your freedom? Observe what your mind just said. Is that belief worth your freedom?
Listen to your mind’s chatter and ask yourself if defending your thoughts are worth limiting your experience of life? Be vigilant with your thoughts, release the limiting ones and set yourself free.
Spend a few minutes each day and notice your thoughts, beliefs, assumptions and agreements. There is no such thing as the truth, everything is relative.
