What is Yours Will Not Go Past You – The Gift of the Bright Red Dot

I remember the first time I heard this statement 30 years ago, and, (as a newly minted magical thinking new ager) I took it to mean that I would “easily and effortlessly” manifest what I want. After all, if I desire something should I not be able to manifest it?

“What is truly yours will not be withheld from you”, and “If you can imagine it you can create it”, became two statements that have challenged me over the years to dive deep and find the courage to face what I didn’t want to face.

The fact is that life will not always give me exactly what I want in the form I insist upon, and that chasing anything to make it so will not yield the fruits of either statement no matter how much I try to manipulate it.

If something eludes you, chasing it will only lead to heartache, or boredom.

My key chain has one of those teeny laser lights you can beam on the floor in front of your cat to get her to chase it. My puppy loved it at first. Jumping on it, not knowing where this magical red dot came from, sure that she would eventually catch it and make it hers, she endured the constant teasing with gusto.

Now she looks at it, snorts and walks away and looks for a more stable chewy, one that has more stability and flavor. She quickly figured out that the bright red dot meant she would not win.

I really think sometimes life feels like that when you’re in the deliberate conscious manifesting mode. Chasing after the bright red dot …have you ever done that, or felt like it? So sure that “ THIS is THE THING, or he is THE ONE etc.” only to find yourself running around going nowhere?

Red flags, the symbolic human version of the bright red dot, do the same thing. They are warnings that something is amiss, that the door you’re knocking on isn’t meant to open for you. They are beautiful tricksters for the obsessive goal chasers but they also serve a purpose beyond saying “not for you.”

Not always portending that something is “bad” or harmful, oftentimes they are a signal for course correction especially when you’re in a transition or consciously desiring a change in your life. Red flags are also invitations to make a new choice, shift your focus and find the courage to do something different.

The red flags say you must change in order to continue on the journey, look deep and ask the hard questions “ Am I willing to become the person that lives this life I think I want? Will I make the sacrifice? Can I be accountable and responsible to steward this forward with the greatest integrity? Do I believe in myself enough? Am I worthy? Am I chasing something without knowing the consequences?

When you want to make a change, create something new for yourself, you have to become the person that can step into that change. That takes work.

What is “yours” is determined by how clear you are, and only then will the universe reflect that accurately in divine timing in the form not wholly determined by you but yes you have to participate in that too.

Wishy washy you = wishy washy results.

The right use of imagination, knowing how you want to serve, allowing inspiration to flow through you to help guide your next step and then seeing the reflection of what is “yours” in its integrity.

What we co-create is determined by how much of us is in alignment with that which we desire. Every time you uplevel your life, you need to change and become the person willing to go to any lengths to meet that new version of you. You cannot take your old self with you.

This is why we need to be brave to either surrender the dream altogether knowing deep down we’re not willing to do the things we need to in order to be that person who has that life, or do what it takes to move beyond the old familiar internal obstacles that keep us chasing that bright red dot.

So yes “ what is yours will not go past you” is true but more complex than we think.

And, “Rejection is God’s protection” is another good one that reminds us that something better will take its place, or in a deeper way, a way to reflect about what needs to change in order to become the person that can have that, live that, go there, surrender to, love fully, be present to, create etc. It’s also a reminder that we live in a Conscious Universe within which we are unique and are invited daily to live awake, inspired and authentic.

So .. if you desire a better life the question I pose this week is do you know what you need to shift in order to become the person who lives that life? If you don’t have the answer intellectually choose an oracle card to help you reflect.

This is what my oracle cards are for – deep spirited self honesty and personal mastery .. way showers to your most authentic free and powerful self… the modern mystical way.

You coming?

We are in this together.
Love you always and forever…

 

PS – for people who get the DR Oz show I am on this week on July 6th!!

    Yes, sometimes I’ve felt like the skiers in a downhill competition trying to avoid going over those flags that stick up, and re-direct myself so I don’t hit them. Sometimes I don’t know where they are until I’m there. But, maybe because I’m not observant enough. Maybe I’m trying to make something happen that isn’t going to, at least not when I want it to. Darn those Red Flags!

    Thank you Colette! Your timing is perfect as always for my journey! I will reflect on this and ask my Oracle Cards for guidance on Relocation from my current town. The nice thing is… I work from home, so the change is less stressful to pick up and go somewhere else. It is such an interesting time for me, to see much of what came into my life here, has been a reflection of what I wanted and manifested (and many in town did as well). Meaning – There has been a wonderful arts movement here and I have been part of that. I am so grateful. But the outer conditions in town have shifted to uncertainty, and my desire to live elsewhere has become a reality. A push to move on has occurred, and I am ready. There is a new place that calls to us. I will be in a limbo period to see if our train tracks get repaired and if we can actually get our “stuff” out of town, or if we cut our losses and just fly out with a few boxes being mailed out. Northern life at its best! And I will practice my neutral observer as the drama swirls around me, as the mayor and council fight for the train to be up and running by the fall, while many of us accept what cannot be changed. Many of us believe that we will eventually be a fly-in community only, with perhaps a barge coming in once a year. An historical shift. A “That’s interesting!” kind of moment. And what role I play in this important time, will be unfolding very soon… Chasing a red dot would be a futile effort, indeed! All my love to you!

    This is really helpful. I am now of the mind to ask for feedback sooner than to just forge ahead and be disappointed or having not done enough research to understand what is required to build what I have imagined. Recently I visited my former employer(nearly 12 years whom I haven’t connected with for seven years. They are a manufacturer. I needed to have something repaired and that was their specialty. Although I was hesitant to enter this door; as I was laid off from my job when their business was closed.(2010) Long story short. A new pathway began to unfold from a creative hobby that I was exploring. Now 8 years since I was emerging as an artisan a collection of artisanal designs were the result of these experiments. As I was planning to make the trip which was not around the corner; I decided to take some samples of the work and if anyone was available or interested then we could have a discussion. Where it might lead??? Not known. One of the partners was there and greeted me with a warm hug. Another colleague laid all of theses samples out in their showroom and there definitely was interest. The designs are not the usual same as, same as. So I didn’t have a plan, or “strategy” “scheme” in my mind; really wanted some feedback about the compatibility of the artwork for their market. SO He said that he would contact their suppliers, in Europe who print the fabrics to determine the costs? If they could be enlarged etc. I sent some images to him so the artwork can be presented and now I wait. Whatever is meant for me; will not go by me!!!” Had I not washed my duvet cover with a pen and stained one side beyond recognition; I likely would not have needed to reconnect with my former employers. Not only that; had I not been laid off; I likely would never have explored and developed this hobby to the place it currently fills. I was so thrilled that he suggested doing some further research. After over 30 years in the home fashions industry and a well established network of suppliers, customers and connections; I never could have done anything of this scale on my own. Not to say I haven’t tried in different forms already to create something with this work. So now creating a collaborative story; which for someone who is accustomed to forging ahead is different. Why not accept the help from people who have the resources and insights and experience. WHAT DO I KNOW? I have now let go and will in due time learn of the outcome of his research. I trust this man implicitly and it was interesting that his partner wasn’t there on the day I visited. She would need to see the samples and would need to agree on the next steps. Now I can see this being done in concert with a higher view. Whatever outcome has the best interests of all concerned will be the right one. Of course I am not the same person who was employed with their company. I have evolved over the past nearly seven years since that door closed. We shall see!!!! I appreciated and needed the reminder. LET GO NOW. XOXOXO

    Hi Colette. What spoke to me today was “Rejection is God’s protection”. All of life in have been afraid of rejection. I became a people pleaser. This a new way to look at it. It will become one of my mantras. Thank you for taking the time to blog your thoughts. I appreciate every one.

    Thank you for the “red flag” today, Colette. This was pure, unadulterated prophecy. We so often think we are bad or wrong, when all that’s happening is our angels are helping us course-correct. I am still hyperventilating a little at the avalanche of insight your message provided today. You are a marker for me, and have been for quite some time; when I can’t see my angels, at least I can run my cards or read your blog, and there’s always a pointer there. Your gift is mighty, and I am grateful for it.

    Good morning from Santa Barbara! In sooooo many ways the recent blogs and vlogs have been on target for my. The vibration in my world from great expectations becoming desillusioned to the deep desire to seek and re- find my relationship with my higher power and my self. I had planned a month long camping/fishing trip to Montana. The universe decided a bike accident and a broken wrist were my summer destination. I count my blessings that it was not worse and appreciate the gift of love and helpfulness from my tribe of friends and family. Yet, I grieved the loss of my trip I called, “Finding Grace and God in a Fly Fishing Rod ” I was seeking HP OUT there! In the quiet and the being I am recognizing Spirit is always with me and that bright red dots are auto-correcting me (Literally, it was an auto I was avoiding!) Yes! Spirit does have my back and my trust is renewing! Thank you Colette for the gift of you and reminding us on steps to find and share our gifts too!

    I am absolutely chasing the red dot, Colette, and I fooled myself into thinking it would stop for me if I just proved myself to be “enough.” I am left sad and angry and directionless. I look for signs of something, and the dragonfly keeps showing up, everywhere I go. But I don’t know what it is telling me. Today, don’t see a way out of this, but your words are soothing. Thank you for them.

    Hello, Colette.

    Totally awesome post and very syncronistic with the recent upheavals in my life. Trying to find a new direction, but after reading this, along with this weeks awesome Oracle Card Reading, I’m thinking I might need to have some fun and get back to the “heavy” after this week.

    LOL, I love “Dude” for Source. The Dude Abides!!! Also, for “K-I-S-S”… I changed it to “Keep it simple, Sweetie (or Sweetheart)”. Hope you don’t mind.

    Much love and gratitude.

    Great reminder, Colette! I cannot take my old self with me. So, if I want to be someone who speaks and presents to others (which I’ve been feeling for quite a while) then I need to make the most of the opportunity presented to me. A fabulous one, but not as easy as it could have been if it had presented itself at a different moment. Here I go!

    Oh my goodness, this happened to me yesterday. First of all a little back up story. I had made a God box several months ago after hearing Colette talking about this during one of her lessons in Oracle School. Then, I got my pre-ordered box of Good Tarot Cards. I had the set for several weeks when I noticed that my God box was almost exactly the same colour as the back of the cards. I was in awe, because I made the box months before I got the deck. I showed my husband and he said, “Did you ever see a copy of the deck before you got them?” “No.” Like, okay spirit, you are really here with me and you want me to stay connected with you through the cards. Anyway, back to yesterday. I got up and did my card reading for the day. They spoke about how I am living an abundant life and that I need to stop seeing myself as not worthy of receiving abundance. After I made the God box, I thought I should make them to sell, but I wasn’t sure about this idea. I wanted to make more and thought, if I don’t sell them, I could give them as gifts. I thought I would make them different colours, etc. Mine is made out of an old cutlery box that my husband found in his shop. So, this is what I wanted to make them from, but they are not easy to come by. My sister had already gotten me one from a second hand shop. She and I were out shopping yesterday. She is quite good at the whole “ask the universe and ye shall receive thing.” I’ve not been that great at it. So when we entered the store, I said. “Okay, spirit, I am looking for a cutlery box.” Within minutes, I found one. It was not what I was looking for at all. It was plastic and not suitable. So I laughed and said to my sister, “You know, when you ask for something, you really do need to be specific. Then I said out loud, “Okay, spirit, what I am looking for is a wooden cutlery box.” I laughed and carried on, without thinking I would actually find anything like this. Well, within minutes, I found eight wooden cutlery boxes. I only took six of them. I laughed the whole way out of the store. I have my work cut out for me now. But, the biggest thing I got out of this whole experience is that you can get what you ask for. That you must be specific about what you want. AND spirit is really listening….all the time and with a great sense of humour.

    Colette, you have taught me so much in the past eight years. I love that I now live everyday in direct communication with the Divine Spiritual Energy. It is because of you that I have this wonderful relationship. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

    Oh boy, have to say this one hit home! I have been through the Beta groups, Personal Mastery and now Good Tarot, and this finally gets through to me! Yep, this message was definitely meant for me. I couldn’t get “IT.” I kept reading other people’s posts wondering why IT was not happening for me, and then I finally really started doing the work, digging deeper into the meanings of the cards. I started researching the numerology (by the way, the numerology guide in The Good Tarot handbook has been a fabulous tool for me!), the symbology, etc., of the cards and the meanings in the guidebooks. Once I started doing the meditations and daily card pulls, along with the research, things began to click into place and I am finally starting to see the bigger picture. I guess I really thought I would just be able to skate through the classes and that eventually, if it were meant for me, it would just happen. NOPE! Doesn’t work that way. So now I am doing my daily mediatations and card draws, doing the background work, the Home Plays, etc., and NOW it is starting to come together! I am so grateful that I have been blessed to be able to stick with this journey to start finding my connection to Spirit. Thanks Colette, your Team and this Tribe for helping me along the way, giving me support as I needed it, and letting me find my way at my own pace. My life is changed for the better because my mental outlook has been directed to a more positive way of being. A direct result of my collaboration with Spirit!

    Colette,
    It’s been a while since I’ve written on the blog but something about this post resonated with me. There have been times where I’ve felt that my life has been on rails; there were no choices to be had, no crossroads, just hang on and “enjoy” the ride. At other times it’s like I’m at a four way stop and there’s nothing to give me any indication of what may be down each path. No natural landscape, no mountains, no smell of the ocean, all paths are equally viable. These are the times when I get stuck. This crossroads is truly my own; there is no one I can talk to who has come to this crossroad. While I could ask for advice there is no one who has been at the exact point in their life with the same variables, and going back the way I came is NOT an option. That is why I’ve learned that I can’t measure my own life with someone else’s yardstick; each of my experiences are uniquely mine.
    Right now my life seems to be at a point where it is on rails, albeit the journey is not as “high speed” as it has been at other times. The indicators that there is a reason that I’m at the point I am is that there is a pivotal event getting ready to happen. The “Great American Eclipse” is going to happen in a little over 30 days, and I was put in a place where I am almost on the point of maximum occultation, and I have to do very little maneuvering. If the opportunity I am currently in had not been delayed I would have missed this celestial event. In the placement that this eclipse will occur in my astrology chart it will be a significant event in my life. Is it a crossroad? Is it a time to sit back, buckle up and enjoy the ride? I have read articles from a few astrologers and their insight has been vague. If any astrologers can direct me to an article that does give insight on this phenomenon I would be grateful. Yes, the Universe may say “what is for you won’t go past you” but it may also be saying “what would you do for a Klondike bar?” 🙂

    Yeah, this was from last week or so, but just getting to it and job hunting in a new town and didn’t ur blog just kick my butt!!!!?! Thanks CBR, I have def been whining and this has helped me get outta the funk of why can’t I find work, and I just started looking! LOL

    I am kinda pessimistic about job hunting, so I get into the funk easily, but focusing on Spirit and how I want to be like Spirit and letting the work come to me is what I need to do, or as u say be the u u want, etc…. right on!

    Thanks for the emotional whooping! Wanted to come to FL gig as I now live in NC, which is much closer than my Chicago, IL address, but with the move, I want 2 wait for spending. Great deal, tho!

    Thanks for thinking of us all!

    Dear Colette,
    I couldn’t help but thing of the ” red dot” that Indian women wear on their forehead all through treading this post! So much so I decided to do a little research….

    ” The dot has a mystical meaning. It represents the third eye of spiritual sight, which sees things the physical eyes cannot see. Hindus seek to awaken their inner sight through yoga. The forehead dot is a reminder to use and cultivate this spiritual vision to perceive and better understand life’s inner workings-to see things not just physically, but with the “mind’s eye” as well. ”

    Thank you so much for sharing your most valuable treasured wisdom!
