Create a better life story when you resonate with

The Energy Season of Metal Element
Quality #5 - TRUTH
Do you tell the truth? ...or regularly engage in 'white lies', withholding the truth, or consciously lie to yourself and others? Imagine if you were the children's story Pinocchio character and every time you lied, your nose grew a bit longer. How long would your nose be at the end of the day?
The metal element quality of truth in many ways is a spiritual concept that we can cultivate and consequently use to grow our spiritual awareness or consciousness, taking us towards a path of inner peace and contentment.
Currently the nature of truth is hotly debated in politics and social media, with the public subjected to a daily brazen use of lying or bending the truth. These lies are designed to capture your attention to grow someone else's agenda or point of view. It is not usually based on truth or facts. Obscuring the truth is their primary weapon. In a world of challenges, the lack of truth may be one of the worst for creating misery in our lives. Whether we accept lies or tell them, we weaken our own energy field with self-doubt, lack of respect or lack of integrity and then wonder why we are unhappy.
Real truth has several qualities to look for - to begin with it is absolute - meaning it is what it is - not dependant on anything else. It also corresponds to reality or the way things are. You can recognize it when you see it and feel an inner alignment.
However, since our realities are based on our perspectives and beliefs this can make the truth muddy, because what may be true for you is not true for me. This is another instance where our personal work helps us to better 'see' the truth of our reality. We can in fact peel away layers of patterns until we get to the truth of a matter. Do you consciously or unconsciously accept a lie if it upholds your belief? How often do you tell yourself the truth?
When the quality of truth eludes us or is weak in our field of energy we are easily pulled in by the lies or the negative messages of others, malicious advertising or social media content. Author, Caroline Myss's quote is very apt here. "Watch where your brain goes to feed itself." Notice, if taking in negative stories and disputable facts draws your attention - your metal element may need balancing (or repatterning!).
Truth creates coherence....When we are telling, observing and living our truth, things line up in our field of energy and we feel a strong sense of inner harmony or coherence. We intuitively tend to look for the truth of a matter and facts to back it up, independant of our perspective. We feel at one with the world and totally aligned - even if the reality of some truths hurt. We know what's what or at least feel it as an embodied felt sense. When we are aligned with the quality of truth and living it - we avoid lying to ourselves and others and we can take unhesitating action and speak our truth in the moment without editing ourselves. We also have more energy because we are not constantly monitoring ourselves for the lies we are maintaining.
Can you find facts to support important truths in your life? Truth may take us some time to determine as we move through and heal our patterns of perceptions, values and beliefs. Energize your metal element energy by making a practice of searching for the truth and telling your own truth as much as possible.
