The perfect moment
Perfectionism now seems to be associated with mental illness, narcissism, anxiety, manipulative behavior, unhappiness, and other terrible disorders. 🤯😵🥴
As a perfectionist myself, I sometimes tend to procrastinate, stress about, and hold back on opportunities. 🤕
But is perfectionism all that bad in fact? Is the solution to uproot and remove it, exile it 100% from our lives? Can something good be found inside this type of energy? 🤔
As a yogini and tantric aspirant, I know that everything is energy, there are no mistakes and the key is to embrace and include all that exists by understanding its place, purpose, and meaning. 🧘
As a designer, especially when I’m designing for my clients, I tend to pay way too much attention to every detail. So I end up spending way too many hours picking the “perfect font”, “perfect size”, and “perfect placement”. The results are great and my work is appreciated, but I always wonder if there is an easier way to create and get at least the same results but with more ease & flow. ✨
I realize what a trap being a “perfectionist” and wearing that badge of honor can be. 💡
So what is the solution? 🤷♀️
Many times when we don’t understand something or we use it wrongly and get hurt – we tend to avoid it completely. But I don’t want to do this. I don’t like the extremes anymore. I want to integrate this energy into my life harmoniously with an understanding and true sense of its scope.
A few months ago I discovered the true meaning of the word “perfect.” 🙃
It was while I was watching a video where some yogis shared spiritual experiences. There was a woman that shared how one day, more or less out of the blue, she started to feel a particularity in the energy and air in the room. She discerned that she was experiencing the “perfect moment”. She was living in the present moment where her consciousness had expanded into the entire universe. It was a moment of pure bliss that words can’t describe.
I instantly resonated with her. I was resting in my bed, feeling good and at peace … just wishing something like that could happen to me at some point. I began to let go and felt blessed to be able to learn what was possible from her experience. And suddenly I got goosebumps, the energy started to rise in my body and I realized that I was living in the “perfect moment” too. It was mind-blowing. It was so natural that I barely noticed it at first. But everything was different from how I normally perceived things to be. In this new state, there were no limitations, no desires, no fears, only possibilities, fulfillment, and potential.
This experience marked the moment when I began to understand a bit more about the magical side of the universe. How everything is in order, nothing is by mistake. I feel so grateful to be a part of this creation. To discover God. To discover me. To go beyond the ordinary, to start exploring more of what there is – and its endless superbness and ecstasy. 🌈
In reality, perfection is a godly attribute. ✨
Meaning that it is a quality that God has and we as humans have it too or we can assimilate it. Perfection has its own frequency of vibration that never changes and is available to all of us to attract in our beings at any time. We just have to be open to it.
Perfection is not obtainable or understood from our ego-limited perspective – it is something that our soul can manifest. It’s beyond our mind and mediocrity. 🤦
Here’s an analogy. Try to draw a perfect circle on a piece of paper with only a pen. What did you get? Is the circle perfect? Now draw a circle with a pen and a compass. You see that when we try to do it unassisted it’s almost impossible to do it perfectly. But when we are guided by the divine, we become a channel, and when we play by the rules of the universe then what we create is perfect, whole, and genuine. This is how we expand our limited perspectives and reach the ultimate universal truth. 😮
I have experienced the perfect moment multiple times since then. It was not a one-time experience. The start is from the present moment, letting go of everything and reaching with an open heart to truly discover God. No thoughts, struggles, or efforts are required. Just pure intention. The universe knows the way and it will take you there. 🚀
Realize that the foundation of the entire creation is love, happiness, bliss… abandon yourself entirely to the universal harmony and feel the divine bliss that is healing and will realign you with the universal macrocosmic order. 🕉️
The perfect moment is now.
Here are some practical tips to break the cycle of not living in genuine perfection:
❤️ 1. practice being open to new perspectives and possibilities
💛 2. accept gifts, accept love, accept healing, accept help, accept that life is meant for us to enjoy.
💚 3. tap into the divine energy of perfection and let go of the misunderstanding around it
💙 4. let go of shame, isolation, and the limitation of doing it all alone (the universe is here for you and it is part of you and you are part of it)
💜 5. redefine the word perfection and understand its true essence
We can say that perfection has two sides:
❌ The ego-driven side: through control, struggle, force, and suffering that leads to exhaustion, health problems, and unhappiness.
😊 The soul-guided approach is obtainable when we are open to divine guidance – when we actively co-create with God. That moment when we are astonished and witness the magical perfect creation that is beyond our imagination.
I hope you’ll use this glorious energy of perfection to enlighten your life. 🌈
👉 I’m curious to know what your experience with perfection has been so far?
👉 Have you felt the spark of the perfect moment yet?
👉 Are you allowing yourself to be guided by the divine when creating?
👉 Do you feel joy, ease, and flow when you work on your projects, business, or doing regular housework?
👉 Do you have perfect relationships?
👉 I might go as far and dare to ask if you believe that you can have a perfect life?
👉 What do you have to let go for that to happen?
👉 What will you gain?

Say hi! 👋
Oh my, that’s a really deep contemplation on perfection.
I am also perfectionist and artist and understand how it sometimes can even feel like a burden that I HAVE to bring it to an end, but in time I learned that the heart knows when “it is done”.
As long as I didn’t find the perfect font, the perfect size, the perfect colors, it can be a nice design, but it is not a piece of art yet. And I learned to appreciate sitting some extra hours, but publishing the website, flyer, poster or photograph knowingly that it is done to the end. It has reached perfection. It came true.
But yes, not always I can take that time, I am not a full-time artist, I can not only create artworks, I also have to be efficient and pragmatic at times. And then I am happy with my work, I like my work, but my heart is not ecstatic, and my soul is not fully nourished as when having it brought to Godly perfection.
Thank you Oana for sharing your wonderful thoughts, keep on writing such perfect posts, that are not only informative, but transformative. <3
Thank you so much dear Sofian!
I totally relate to your experience. I found myself in situations where I wear many hats in a project and I need to let go of some details in order to make the big wheel spin — and that for me is another form of perfection if I make it right. It is so different each time.
Thank you again for your support. <3
P.s. Looking forward to reading more of your revelatory posts too!
