When Is Enough, Enough? By Jessie Torres

How often do we put ourselves in the line of fire before we wipe our brow, take a deep breath and decide that enough is enough?

Sometimes it seems that we have to get tarred and beaten before we realize that we are the masters of our destiny.

The point is, do we have to come to a state of apathy or mental, emotional, physical beat down to wake up and take a stand for our own beautiful spirit? Do we have to become bloodied and bludgeoned before we decide that we are worthy of more?

It is not noble to suffer! It doesn’t make the rise that much more valiant because we suffered more.

What if we decide to create our lives by our vision of a masterpiece right now? What if we put in place everything that stalks that deck in our favor to be extraordinary? To be at the cause of our lives not the effect?

Life will bring its challenges, as all life does. It is what makes this life so incredibly amazing as it creates polarity. We can’t know light without knowing dark, we can’t know positive without knowing negative. Trust that if you take the bull by the horns, and with intent and inspired action, make your life everything you could possibly imagine. You may have the adversity and road blocks that take you out for the moment, or cause you to stumble, but that is the richness in life so long as you see those bumps in the road as learning or growing opportunities, rather than disempowering beliefs that cause you to stumble down the rabbit hole of victimization.

Life will throw plenty at you so you don’t have to put yourself in the line of anyone’s fire or in a disempowering situation.

It is an illusion that we have to live within anything that doesn’t serve our highest and greatest good. Often times we see it as noble because, well, we don’t want to hurt anyone. The bottom line is that if you are not living connected to your Spirit and loving yourself and living life with joy, you are already causing those you think you are protecting, harm, because they are not getting the full, expansive, beautiful wholeness of you. Your essence is diminished because deep down inside, you know that you are suffering, that something isn’t right, and that clouds your energy and lowers your vibration.

So lets stop this and get off of this crazy train. It is just patterned conditioning that we have learned along the way that we have the power to change.

I invite you to check in with yourself. What are you tolerating? A bad relationship, overeating, alcohol use/abuse, or maybe it is just waiting for someone to validate you or for someones approval.

No matter what you are tolerating, get curious and ask yourself these 6 questions:

1. Is this making me feel good?
2. Is it fueling my energy or draining it?
3. Why am I putting myself in this?
4. What am I seeking to gain?
5. What do I believe I will feel when I get it?
6. Is it something that I can give myself?

You see, when we are looking outside of ourselves to fulfill a part that is lacking, it is presupposing that we are not whole and complete, therefore, making us feel that we are not enough.

What if we can fill this gap with our own self love, validation and approval? I believe that this is why the situation is showing up in our lives over and over again to force us to take a stand. A stand for our own beauty and our own magnificence. If we don’t see the brilliance of our own light and the beauty of our Spirit, how can anyone else?

It is time to take a deep look at ourselves and realize our power and beauty. There is no one else like you! You are made the way you are with purpose and on purpose. Don’t be stingy with your essence!! Share your beauty with us.

There are a lot of shifts happening in the world right now and we need each and every light to shine in love and radiance. It is this deep love for self and one another that will help shift humanity. It is a misconceived notion to believe that your light is not brilliant, not magnificent and awe inspiring. Says who?

So connect, breathe, put your hand on your heart and know that you are already enough and you don’t have to suffer not another minute!!

The gift of YOUR Human Spirit is what the world needs now more than ever.

When you realize how incredible you are, you begin to emit that to each and every person in your life and even energetically to all you experience. You are now an energetic field of love, power and grace. Your essence will be felt and you will affect not only your world and those closest to you, but also all those that have the pleasure of meeting you.
