All layers blend together into a sphere and this sphere, I call my world. There are as many layers of reality as there are human beings in this world. Different choices allow me to venture into different layers. In a magical way, I co-create my own reality and for sure, I have a say in that !
LAYER 1: SECURITY / THE NORMAL / THE OUTSIDE
As long as I don’t feel safe, my doingness is driven by my need to survive. My focus is on the outside world and I consider my reality to be normal. A sense of safety is one of my human needs. Trust allows me to let go of this need and explore different layers of reality.
LAYER 2: OUTER SENSES / THE GOOD / THE OUTSIDE
One way to get in touch with my body is through my outer senses, touch being my most important one. Experiences can be truly amazing and yet something seems to be missing as I often get stuck in bodily pleasures and external desires.
LAYER 3: POWER & AMBITION / THE BETTER / THE OUTSIDE
A sense of accomplishment is another one of my human needs but often it remains focussed on outside goals and expectations. Even if my goals are met and life is better, my need for accomplishment remains. It is when I get touched in my heart, I’m opening up for the best.
LAYER 4: LOVE & DEVOTION / THE BEST / TOUCHED INSIDE
When my heart gets touched, I touch upon Love even if I don’t understand what that means. It isn’t always joyful as I would have expected. Yet, each time it opens me up to discover more of who I am. The fruits of these moments serve as motivation to discover some more and so I start my inner journey.
Uncovering the different layers of protection I have build around my heart is an ever ongoing journey. Some layers may let go easily, others may need to be pierced or even broken. Opening my heart means that I’m willing to feel what lays covered underneath my different strategies of protection. Feeling all of this awakens courage, compassion and above all, acceptance.
As I explore my heart, I’m able to bring it into all of the other layers of my reality and live the very best.
LAYER 5: INNER SENSES / THE DREAM / OUTSIDE AS INSIDE
As I uncover my heart, I connect with my inner senses again. My intuition is my GPS to venture into the unknown. Underneath my layers of protecting, lays covered my dream. Going for my dream is a reflection of going for my heart. Each time I discover different layers and each time, the dream changes.
Slowly, my dreams of doing transform into dreams of being. A dream to be my true nature, beyond my beliefs and conditioning’s. I practice looking in the mirror of Life and become skilled in the art of letting go.
Each step deeper brings along fruits of the present moment, providing enough nutrition to keep journeying deeper. Each letting go makes me more comfortable with the unknown. In my dream of being, there is nothing to be reached anymore.
LAYER 6: DISCERNMENT & EQUANIMITY / THE UNKNOWN / INSIDE AS OUTSIDE
Making choices from my heart and remaining present with the outcome are the main keys in this layer of reality. The outcome might look like chaos, never the less, it’s all part of the Divine. Every step I take on the dance floor of Life, I deepen my presence and my worthiness. When I forget, Life has ways to help me remember. Moments of magic and despair can be lived the same. I connect more fully to my being and touch upon my dream. My dream to be my true nature.
LAYER 7: THE UNKNOWABLE / HERE & NOW / MORE THAN WORDS
These deeply touching moments are the abundance I’ve been longing for. In these manifestations of magic, nothing has or needs to be done. Surrendering to the moment while showing up. The present moment merges with the vastness of the past and all of the future. These moments have many names, I call it the Divine.
