When was the last time you listened or read something that really struck you, really spoke to you, and then the next day couldn’t remember what it was? Have you ever wondered how you can begin to hold onto this knowledge?

It’s not a matter of intelligence, it’s a matter of energy. When you don’t have enough energy and when you don’t have a good solid framework from the basics on up from your brain to your mind… these things will slip from you.

If you find things are slipping from your head, here are a few things to consider:

1) Consistency and frequency

Ask yourself if you are being consistent. Little short meditations on a daily basis is better than a few really long ones every few days. It’s about keeping yourself there. And it’s not just meditation but how many times during the day are you waking yourself up? Looking at auras? Or thinking about energy? Even simple stuff works.

2) The Simple Stuff

Ask yourself what you’re listening to or experiencing that is slipping away from you. Maybe you aren’t ready for it. Maybe you are too eager to get to the “big stuff” and don’t realize the “big stuff” is often inside the “small stuff.”

Go back and reflect on the ground level courses like the Foundation, Ties that Bind, Struggle to Awaken or Unveiled. (*Link to free audio?)

Do these things make sense to you? Have you mastered them in your mind and taken the time to reflect and see real examples of this in life? Often when you can see the truth of these things in some way if helps concrete them.

3) Start Small

When you meditate and do the work, the Universe is going to strengthen and fix what it needs to fix. Some people need more work on their basic emotions and human psychology before they can move on. If you are trying to ignore your basic “human” stuff and instead are reaching for the stars, guess what? You aren’t going to get there.

Thankfully, the Universe knows this and usually puts the “human” stuff there first. Don’t get frustrated because you aren’t having big “spiritual” breakthroughs but you feel more relaxed and emotionally balanced. That IS a spiritual breakthrough. It’s important to get a good foundation before you can reach the sky.

If you feel this is where you are, maybe you need to work with that process rather than trying to move around it. The obstacles you think are in front of you are nothing more than the baggage you’ve left dragging behind.
