Ok, so before we begin let’s put things in perspective here. The phrase “Up & Stuck” from the popular Cardi B song more than likely has an ENTIRELY different meaning than what I am about to share today. I’m confident that Cardi B was not intending to “get deep”.
Nonetheless, the phrase has spread like wildfire and I think it’s worth taking a look at the metaphysical perspective behind the saying. If so many people resonate with it, there may be a reason.
What does it mean to be “up & stuck” from an occult viewpoint? Once an idea has reached particular vibrational circumstance, it’s own momentum will become self-sustaining. The infinitely expanding idea with a self-sustaining foundation will maintain a supreme circumstance in the physical reality, the last stop for thoughts. The idea is to empower yourself, raise your own vibration to a degree it is self-sustaining. At a certain point, you will be “up & stuck”, because your own momentum will ensure your progressive evolution.
Of course this perspective only make sense when you take into consideration the mental foundation of all things and that everything in the physical world can reduce to vibrating atoms. When you consider that all things are in a state of vibration, which are ultimately controlled by consciousness, then you begin to think thoughts that build your own momentum from within so that you too can be “up & stuck”.
It’s important to keep in mind that maintaining your momentum is an INTERNAL process. You must maintain your infinitely expanding equilibrium of energy in motion by any means necessary.
“The most important thing you can do to achieve your goals is to make sure that as soon as you set them, you immediately begin to create momentum.”-Tony Robbins
The Power Of Momentum
Thoughts have momentum. The mind is powerful and our thoughts have energy. When we focus on a thought and give it our attention, that energy affects what we say and do in response. Once a thought gets enough of our attention, it begins to gather momentum.
Behaviors have momentum. Our mind and body are great subordinates to the beliefs that drive our behaviors. And once our patterns of behavior–or habits–have been established, they directly influence our attitudes, actions, and words. Habits have their own powerful momentum until we decide to change them.
Relationships have momentum. All relationships start small and grow over time. As we connect more deeply with others, certain relationships–especially romantic ones–will establish momentum, while others, like with coworkers, may not–at least not in the same direction. In relationships, momentum can be established by creating honesty and truth to gain greater transparency.
By using the three simple balance steps of 1) awareness; 2) alignment; and 3) activation, we can stop, change, or redirect momentum in our lives. We can recognize momentum through awareness; discern healthy from unhealthy patterns by choosing alignment; and continue the momentum or choose to change, stop, or redirect it through activation–three simple steps for recognizing, slowing, or starting new momentum. Why is understanding momentum important? Because we have the power to adjust it. When our patterns or habits are no longer working–even if they have gained momentum–we can adjust our focus. By making different choices and focusing on new healthy habits, we can slow momentum in some areas and create new momentum in others. And this will help us move in the directions that we truly desire–even if it’s just a bike ride around the lake.
