[success]Live out of your imagination, not your history. Stephen Covey[/success]
Your life is speaking to you loud and clear. Everything that happens to you doesn’t come from ‘out of the clear blue sky’, it doesn’t arrive by chance or accident or some kind of random design. Our relationships don’t one day go down in flames, our finances don’t suddenly go down the tubes and as for the goals we haven’t reached, someone isn’t magically moving the goal posts.
Life isn’t happening to us by accident. Life is a responder, it’s mechanical, and automatically delivers to us all that we’re aware of. Everything has its cause within us. And that’s absolutely everything. There’s no master puppeteer pulling our strings, our family or someone else isn’t doing it to us, there’s no outside cause at work.
I know it’s tough, but we can’t look anywhere outside of ourselves for the answer to what the heck is going on here? There’s no pre-destined fate lurking round the corner, hoping to catch us unawares…there’s only us, and we can trace everything back to our beliefs
Maybe you’re feeling bored or confused, or you’re a tad frustrated or worried or even sad, if so…listen up…your life is trying to get your attention. If things are going to hell in a handbasket, don’t ignore the feelings and experiences you’re having. If your relationships never work out…you’re getting a message…if you never feel safe or secure either financially or emotionally…another message. Feeling less than creative, totally uninspired…you guessed it…a message. Are you listening to your life?
These messages aren’t coming from outer space, they’re being delivered to you courtesy of the amazing universal web of consciousness in which we all dwell. It’s a pretty cool system.
It’s not by accident I call my blog Reflectingalife…that’s how life talks to us, mirroring us to us through each event and circumstance. Life operates in the same way all the time. It doesn’t take a day off, or say nah, don’t feel like reflecting stuff to you today, or I’m too busy to respond to you…work it out for yourself. It’s actually our little helper, giving us an accurate reflection of our choices, beliefs and patterns of thought.
Your life isn’t some theory or concept, it’s real, it’s happening now, you’re experiencing it now, and your reflections are filled with all the information you need to make decisions and choices about who you are, who you want to be and want you want to experience.
Listen to what life is telling you because it won’t, it can’t, mislead or lie, you can trust the truth that’s revealed. And it’s all good, it’s all okay, whatever it is that we see in our mirror, we don’t have to condemn or blame ourselves, even when the reflection isn’t really flattering, it’s just a reflection and not the entire truth about who we are. In my case, that’s a relief, phew! But best of all, we can change it if we want.
The current reflection only shows our vibration in this moment of time, this now. If the reflection is a problem then the same power that created it also has the solution…and it comes from the same place, within us. You’ve got to admit, that’s pretty cool.
Listening to our life is always done in awareness. How aware are you of the events you experience, especially the ones you don’t much care for? How aware are you of the people you meet, the relationships you have, the body you’re wearing, the success you experience, the money in the bank? Every one of these experiences is your life talking to you, giving you the information you need to make any changes you choose.
How to make changes? Where to begin?
This is where the most incredible gift we’ve been given comes into play. Our imagination. You can place anything in your imagination and I mean anything. It has no limits. It’s not limited by night or day, by time or space…nothing gets in its way. Everything we experience in imagination is a creative act.
[success] Imagination is the beginning of creation. You imagine what you desire, you will what you imagine and at last you create what you will. George Bernard Shaw[/success]
Sleep is a natural doorway to our imagination, the doorway to our subconscious which is where all our creations take place. Knowing that all we experience comes from within ourselves we should always fall asleep in the happy place of having all our wishes, our desires fulfilled. Ask yourself what would I feel if I knew I were exactly who I wanted to be, if I had the success I desired, if I had the relationship that was perfect for me, if I were vibrantly healthy and abundant in all areas of my life?
And then fall asleep in that feeling. Nightly. You’ll be listening to your life…and…making it better.
