The mantra “all is perfect” is, in my opinion, a kind of spiritual by-passing. And it makes me crazier than a unicorn on meth.
If you know me personally, you’ll know I loathe spiritual by-passing and any kind of vapid virtue-signalling or spiritual coat-tailing.
Unless you are Abraham Hicks or talking about the energetics of the Law of Attraction, reciting the mantra “all is perfect” when things don’t pan out is a misnomer.
(If you don’t think that precise speech is important, you most likely aren’t yet a master manifestor. Just sayin’.)
When you say “all is perfect”, it should be because you mean to say that the experience you’ve drawn unto yourself is the physical manifestation of the exact vibrational match you resonated to create.
However this is not how the mantra “all is perfect” is used in the New Age. What’s usually meant by it is that things weren’t meant to be or even the exact opposite, that something was fated to happen and we had no part in it!
If most people understood that their current realities are exact reflections of what they’ve been resonating to, our world would look a lot different.
And we wouldn’t be obsessed with zombies.
What I’m on about in this post is a kind of spiritual by-passing whereby people say “all is perfect” as a crutch to avoid agency for their creations and keep from doing the work necessary to shift their frequency.
I’m sure you’ve heard this mantra as a cop-out in all its variations:
“Everything is as it should be
“Everything is in perfect, divine timing”
“I am exactly where I need to be right now.”
While it’s true that there are many spiritual people who are incredibly hard on themselves and need to be reminded that to err is human, there are many more who seem totally fine with the fact that they can’t seem to get their shit together. Like they’ll end up where they need to… eventually, somehow. (On the back of a unicorn?)
Until the day they aren’t okay with it anymore (and blame their unicorn).
I’m sure you’ll agree that it’s way easier to not make those hard changes or to commit to consistently taking stock of how we are progressing throughout our lives, aka NOT spiritual by-passing.
Are we sabotaging ourselves, being lazy, or generally resisting making changes that our soul wants us for us to be more of who we REALLY are?
In modern society, in the name of self love, many of us go soft on ourselves in the face of change. We stop and give in to the resistance when often it’s exactly the time to do the hard thing, to dig in our heels or crunch forward.
I know, I know, I just recently published an article on self-compassion as a key ingredient to spiritual healing. Self- love IS key to healing, but to progress further in our spiritual evolution, we might also have to shore up and exert a little tough love on ourselves from time to time.
Spirituality isn’t all rainbows and unicorns. Raising your vibration doesn’t just happen by thinking positively.
When you smoke that single cigarette you know, even before you light it, will sabotage the last 5 months of your abstinence, is everything perfect?
Is binge watching a whole season of Stranger Things slumped on the sofa “all perfect” when you could be soothing your sciatica and strengthening your core on the yoga mat?
Is everything “in divine timing” when have to do an extra year of university because you had a drunken accident on your bike the morning of a final exam? True story (:
If you watch your thoughts closely, you’ll notice the Voice of Resistance that pops up right at the defining moment before doing something you know you shouldn’t do.
You know the one. It’s the voice that says “fuck it”.
Giving into that voice is what makes the difference between your progress or being faced with the same situation, or worse, six months down the road.
Six months later, when the results we wanted didn’t manifest, is when we’ll secretly coddle ourselves with that syrupy mantra, “all is perfect”. All because we didn’t override that Voice of Resistance.
Ironically, yes, what you’ve created IS now an exact vibrational match to your frequency over the last six months. What you didn’t manifest is a result of the lack of effort, discipline or consistency that was necessary to bring about the change you were seeking. Everything really is perfect!
Except you didn’t mean it that way.
Instead of facing how we failed in our agency to create change, even if that’s just a change in frequency, some of us cop out. We do this by saying what we wanted wasn’t meant to happen or that we weren’t ready for it.
In this way, we can pretend that we didn’t have a hand in the outcome we are faced with now. That magically our current reality just happened on its own.
That’s when we need to sit up and take note that we’ve succumbed to some “Zombie Baking”. The opposite of consciously creating your reality, Zombie Baking is allowing your reality to shape itself unconsciously, without your vigilance.
Ewww, what’s in a zombie cake anyhow?
On the opposite spectrum, you have very conscious co-creators. They’re the ones making tremendous strides in their inner work and changing their lives for the better. They’re the ones manifesting soul mates and dream jobs and taking the reins to overcome their health issues the best they can. They are living out their high-vibe.
They are rocking the frequency.
We envy them and wonder how they do it. But we don’t say “all is perfect” then, do we? Instead we cherry pick, keeping the mantra for ourselves and attributing luck or privilege to others’ success.
Is manifesting a high-vibe life luck? If it were all unicorns and rainbows everyone else would be doing it.
Partly it’s simply not reciting the mantra “all is perfect” but rather “shit, I better try harder next time”.
