BOUNDARIES

Updated: May 9, 2021

"As within so without, as above so below." Ancient saying from the school of philosophical alchemy

A BOUNDARY is a limit that protects integrity. The integrity of your day, relationships, energy, & pursuits of your heart (desires, dreams, goals). Boundaries allow positive things through and keep negative things out. They prevent harm and allow benefit.


INTEGRITY is the state of BEING WHOLE/UNDIVIDED.


If we put the aforementioned definitions together, we see that a BOUNDARY IS A LIMIT THAT PROTECTS OUR WHOLENESS.


Commit that shit to memory boo-boo.

(Yes, I'm writing it AGAIN....)


A BOUNDARY IS A LIMIT THAT PROTECTS YOUR WHOLENESS.


To me, the pursuit of WHOLENESS is the integration and deep acceptance of all of our unique gifts, quirks, weaknesses, strengths, shadows, and light. As we make decisions daily to move into more alignment of self (doing the things that amplify our pleasure, peace, joy, and sense of wholeness) we become more clear on our personal purpose. As these things make themselves known, we remember our innate divinity and worthiness to receive love which ultimately unlocks the abundance of the universe. This pursuit takes awareness and deep connection to our sense of self and requires an understanding of the things we do that allow us to step into this glory -- and the things that shut us out from it. Once we have a deep understanding of our needs to be whole, we can then put boundaries into place to protect it.


Oftentimes our DEFENSES are disguised as BOUNDARIES. Defenses may "protect" us from harm or fear, but they keep us in a fear-based or scarcity-based mindset. Defenses do not open us up to possibility/change/love/forgiveness - they close us off. They chain us to a series of loops and patterns that originated out of survival, but most likely DO NOT SERVE us and our ability to be WHOLE (remember that thing I mentioned before about integrity??) If you’re unsure what you are dealing with is a defense or boundary, ask yourself this:

Is this limit or barrier SUPPORTING or SABOTAGING my greater mission of wholeness?


If you have no clue what your larger mission is, it's time you take a look at that babe. Because if you have NO clarity of your desires and mission, you will continue to repeat your unconscious thought patterns and continue to blame others or "fate" for the lack of getting what you want.


As Carl Jung said, "Until you make the unconscious, conscious -- it will direct your life and you will call it fate."


And let me tell you, WHOLENESS is the true pursuit of life. When we can remember our wholeness and seek this balance daily, we invite in love, joy, peace, and deep meaning into life. Hell, we even invite in ABUNDANCE and WEALT
