There are times when what we’ve come out the other side from makes us wish we hadn’t!
But the truth is what doesn’t kill us makes us stronger! It takes time & a willingness to openly embrace & work through the pain/hurt/betrayal/disappointment or whatever, but if we allow it, it’ll eventually grow us into a stronger more confident version of ourselves!
We can postpone beginning, waiting until we’re beyond all our fears, doubts & all the other reasons that keep us hesitant to subside! Or we can bite the bullet & begin any way! It’s nearly impossible trying to plan or foresee for every eventuality that may or may not go wrong! But we can prepare our mindset to be open to whatever happens that we’ll be able to deal with it!
It seems like a contradiction, & yet that’s Life! we’re both at the same time! We’re a Masterpiece because that is the truth of who we are at our core & at the same time a W.I.P because we’re continuously striving to reveal our inner perfection; hence their coexistence at the same time! Peace comes when we recognise this truth & trust the inner process of our inner evolution & resolution!
We like comfortable & familiar because that’s what the ego knows! But the blessings in Life lie in uncertainty & the unknown! We weren’t made to play it safe but to evolve & grow through our adventures & challenges; so cast off those lines & see where it takes you!
Words carry power, they are the creative force in the Universe & I AM are 2 of the most powerful words you can ever attach positive or negative adjectives too! It doesn’t discriminate!! It simply allows the energy & vibration of the attachment to manifest if constantly affirmed! Eg: I’m broke, fed up, angry or I’m happy, blessed & peaceful! It’s the same... start being more conscious of all the words you attach to I AM & then consider if it’s really what you want to experience in your life & replace or reframe it so that it is!
It’s impossible not to think; but it’s possible to be aware of the quality of your thoughts! But it requires persistent effort!! Too often we’re just lazy and allow ourselves to ruminate on rubbish! By that I mean something pops into our head that’s unhealthy, negative or untrue & instead of eliminating it there & then, we allow ourselves to construct an unhealthy narrative & before we know it, have dragged ourselves down & made ourselves miserable! All because we didn’t consciously halt that particular train of thinking! Be aware & be conscious of what you’re thinking!
It doesn’t matter how long you’ve known someone or all the times they tell you how much you mean to them as a friend; watch how they treat you! Whether you’re the one always calling or making the effort to get together & see if their words & actions correlate, then you’ll know whether they’re gold or gold plated!
We have learnt to be so reactionary to external stimuli & erroneously believing that’s what’s influencing our experiences; that we don’t realise that’s it what we’re feeling internally that is influencing, attracting & causing the experiences we’re having! Pay attention more to how your moods are influencing your life!
Expectations are the major cause of disappointments in life! Whether it be in people, outcomes or experiences! When we can learn to be more accepting of things or people as they are without projecting onto them what or how we want or need them to be Life gets easier & less fraught!
What we give our attention too, whether privately in our thoughts or outwardly in our conversations via social media or otherwise; we’re amplifying the energy behind it fuelling to attract more of the same to ourselves! If all we can do is complain & bitch about what’s not right then watch out... By all means process what’s going on either journaling or with a trusted friend but don’t be broadcasting it!!!
Conceive, Believe, Receive! Once you conceive of an idea/dream/desire; & believe without resistance or doubt then the Universe will do the necessary to conspire that you receive it!
It all comes down to perspective! Depending on whether you’re choosing to see whatever the occurrence, as an opportunity for growth or if you’re feeling the victim? The same experience can cause one person to feel indifference & another to get bent out of shape over it; so it’s not the experience/occurrence that has power but the perspective we attach to it, as to whether life is bad or not...
Every relationship or encounter has a good by and a goodbye date! But for many of us we’re so wired to resist change, that when certain endings come we find it hard to cope. We doubt ourselves & our worthiness of love & affection when really we need only recognise & accept that everything is only for a time!
And yet, we allow so many moments to pass insignificantly by! Too distracted to even be conscious to look up & notice the beauty of a passing cloud! We’re usually replaying old conversations or situations, berating ourselves or blaming someone else for what’s not right with our lives & in the process missing moments of simple beauty & joy that we’ll never experience again in that exact same way! This simple act of looking up serves as a great reminder of just how transient everything is & how quickly things change & no longer matter, including the running dialogue in your head!!!
I’ve often wondered how differently people might feel & think about themselves if they remembered & accepted they are made of the stuff of stars & that there was something within that connected them to everything else without! How amazing life could be if they remembered & lived consciously from that awareness...
Our egos likes the familiar & playing it safe! So the unknown & the uncertainty of change will offer up all manner of negative self talk from our egos to stop or hinder the process! We are here to grow, evolve & express if we’re not doing that, we’re not living just stagnating & nothing healthy comes out of anything that’s stagnant!
Whether you read, listen or watch the news, it’s hard not to sometimes get caught up in the chaos & overwhelm of uncertainty that’s pervading wherever you are in the world! Now more than ever, we need to pause & take literally a time out & pause take a deep breath & think about something that gives you joy or your grateful for & smile!
How often does it feel like we’re carrying the world on our shoulders? But I’d like to invite you to re-examine how much of it is really yours to carry & how much is unnecessarily self imposed?? There are times we add additional stress & pressure to ourselves by taking more on than we need too, because we think it’s the only way it’ll get done or we think we have something to prove! Stop doing it to yourself & look at easing the load you’re already carrying!
Often when we postpone things for later, consciously or unconsciously they never get done for whatever the reason. Whether it’s we get cold feet, uncertain of success, feel vulnerable & or not in control! But the worst thing is not any of those reasons but living with the regret of never trying!
People spend an awful lot of time wondering about what’s the meaning of Life... I believe we’re here to reveal who we are at our core & that’s LOVE! Yes, we have to go through a myriad of diverse experiences, which we may want to resist & yes there are some people who by their actions make them hard to love. However, nobody said it would be easy and it doesn’t absolve us from trying! So, let’s get to it!
