I was recently asked by my Naturopath whether I had a "lack of motivation". She was investigating a flared up thyroid issue that I have from time to time, and apparently "lack of motivation" was one common symptom.
When she asked me this I was suprised that I could not understand the meaning of the word motivation. It was one of those words that seems to disappear when you start to move into a higher timeline/reality/new earth. I explained to her that for the last year or so I only do what I want to, when I want to do it. I have written about this experiment previously.
I realise this is a very strange concept for many people - it sounds selfish and counter productive. But what it really entails is connecting with yourself and checking in with every decision, choice and action and only doing what is truly best for you.
When I considered the concept of motivation through her question, it seemed to be something that we conjur up in order to do something that we truly don't want to do, but feel that we have to do it. It really is a 3D word. We find the energy of motivation from outside of (the reward, outcome etc) and then use this energy to convince ourselves that we NEED to do this thing that we really don't want to do - we just make it happen with force and coercion or whatever means we can find. Motivation in this sense, helps us push ourselves to do things in the 3D world.
When I Googled the meaning of "motivation" this is what I found
"Motivation is the reason for people's actions, desires, and needs. Motivation is also one's direction to behavior, or what causes a person to want to repeat a behavior. A motive is what prompts the person to act in a certain way, or at least develop an inclination for specific behavior"
When looking at this meaning of motivation, I guess my motivation for all my actions and choices is now to fulfill an inner desire or need. The reason for my actions is because it feels good (to me and for me).
In a previous reality (3D) my motivation would have been to fulfill someone else's expectations of me or to meet someone else's needs or to fulfill societies perception of my role.
So to answer the question "do I lack motivation?", well no, I have motivation, just a different motivation (or reason to do things) than I used to.
So many words and concepts in our human lives change when we become a New Human. It can start to be difficult to relate to the old way of doing things, but the new way is so much fun and so much more fulfilling and authentic.
My motivation now, what drives me in my choices and actions, is simply a desire to be my authentic self and to honor my own needs. When I do this, I can offer much more authentic and genuine service to others. Words like sacrifice, obligation and resentment no longer exist in my vocabulary - these only exist when motivation is outside of you (based on a construct that was not of your own making).
Being of service to others is so much more fulfilling, enjoyable and meaningful. I am a much better person, wife, mother and friend when I am acting from my own inner desires and taking care of my needs first. There is a balance in my life of inputs and outputs that creates a greater inner power.
As a spiritual evolutionist I see and live in a different reality to most people.
