Recognizing A WakeUp Call

Authentic living with Gina Charles. The further away from Self we drift, the bigger the wakeup call.

This life experience is the journey back to Self. The current of the journey only flows one way, toward our highest good…AKA the life of our dreams….AKA Self. When unnoticed, unexamined thought is in charge, we begin to drift away from Self. The Universe/God/Source comes to the rescue to tap us on the shoulder to wake us up. Wakeup calls usually come in the form of something that will get our attention, something that feels bad or seems painful. 


The further away from Self we drift, the bigger the wakeup call.


When I feel bad, I notice. I now wake up, and realize I’ve momentarily fallen submersed into thought, where 1 of 2 things are happening:


  • I’m either believing an untruth, or

  •  I’m in resistance to something.


It is at this moment of clarity that I change course, and resume going with the flow, where what feels bad falls away. I wordlessly allow emotion to come and go, I practice unconditional acceptance, I become the eyewitness to thought instead of just having and believing thought, and I exercise Lucidity, or I perceive without the mental commentary. I FUEL up:


F – Flow emotion
Today I will live my life from the inside out.

U – Accept Unconditionally
Today I will make reality my friend and teacher.

E – Be the Eyewitness
Today I will be the eyewitness to thought, so that I may discard those that do not serve.

L – Step into Lucidity
Today I will practice lucidity, so that I may connect to Guidance, Intuition and Life itself.



Have you noticed any wakeup calls in your life lately?

Don’t shoot the messenger. Everything serves. ;)
