[success]Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try Again. Fail again. Fail better. ~ Samuel Beckett[/success]
How many times have you let what you couldn’t do, interfere with what you could do? We’ve all been in the same boat, with a choice to either accept things as they are or decide we have the power to change them. And we have, and we can.
It’s time to stop worrying about yesterday’s failures; time to pick yourself up and start over. So things didn’t work out as planned…we’ve all been there…and we’ll probably all be there again. All being guided by our own private steering committee, charting a new course here and adjusting the old course there.
Life is a true voyage of discovery. And every now and then we need to slow down, take a breath, look around and decide if it’s time to alter course, or even start all over again.
Lately I’ve been asked more than once, fine, but where do I begin?
As the King said to Alice “Begin at the beginning, and go on till you come to the end.”
What do I want…is always the beginning. If we don’t know where we’re going it’s pretty hard to get there. We have to wake up to what we want if we’re going to have our dreams come true.
First pillar to starting over – choice
Something happens we don’t like. We failed to accomplish what we wanted. Or maybe we’re just ready to chart a new course. Whatever it is, it triggers a desire for something better.
Great, now we know what we want. And since creation is a done deal…our only job is to keep ourselves in the state of consciousness that allows us to receive our desire.
No discouragement allowed…we’re all starting from where we are.
Begin by choosing the outcome.
Use as many senses as you can and create a fabulous scene in your imagination.
The desire is fulfilled. You feel excited. What does it look like, feel like, maybe even taste like? What are you doing, what are you saying, what are your friends saying to you, or about you?
It’s not about hoping for great things, it’s about creating the images in your mind and feeling how you would feel if it were true.
Second Pillar to starting over – moods
As we live in these images in our mind we’re making an impression on our subconscious mind, within which lies our invisible power. We’re creating a vibration of success instead of a vibration of need, which is the vibration we occupy when we don’t have something.
Whilst the whole vast universe works with us, it isn’t through our thoughts, but through our feelings, because our feelings create the vibration of energy we live in.
As we focus on greater things, the lesser thoughts, feelings and experiences are given the boot, because we’re no longer giving them life. We are the life givers for every event, experience and encounter we have in our world.
Think about that. Every experience we had and have, were given life and birth by me and thee…and if you’ve read a few of my posts you’ll know I’ve had some lulus.
Which means it’s time to manage our moods.
Try feeling and holding a state of expectancy.
A state of expectancy is an amazing and bountiful thing, but the state of uncertainty that occupies too much of our thinking simply can’t bring our desired results. It’s the polar opposite vibration of the energy we need to occupy.
We weren’t born to live in fear, but to live in joy, in love, in the beauty all around.
Don’t wait for your great moods to arrive, set them up yourself by focusing on the great and the lovely and brighten the corner of the world in which you live.
Third pillar to starting over – action
Taking action. This one is a biggie because we’re so conditioned to working out ‘how’ something will occur. Some of us write lists, some of us use our intellect to figure out a way to make it happen, but that’s not the way.
Think of it like this. All our actions are brought about through our subconscious mind. The state of mind, or vibration we currently occupy contains within it every action it needs to manifest itself in our outer world.
That means every idea we currently have, or every time we try to figure out how to get our desire fulfilled, and any action we might take, stem from our current level of consciousness, and, you guessed it, will draw to us the exact same experiences we’ve decided to change.
Hmmm, hang on a minute, we’re set on entering a new state of mind because we want to experience new events and experiences and people. We’ve just decided to start over and we can’t do that whilst we’re still operating from our old state of mind.
Now it’s time to set our subconscious to work to bring our new state of mind into being.
Before doing anything and yes that includes writing a list of how-to’s, we need to invest plenty of time in steps one and two. That’s the action we need to take. Active inaction.
Don’t try to force manifestation, don’t meddle in the middle, it’s going to work against you. What we’re seeking is inspired action. There’s never any need to force. If we would just allow it, the power within us can put everything together…it’s perfectly capable of connecting the dots.
In fact it does a much, much better job than we, from our limited perspective ever could.
We all have an inner guidance system. Be prepared to listen, and pay attention to signals, however subtle. Maybe you have a new thought, a new idea, an action that you’ve never taken before, yet feel compelled to now. That’s the right time to take action.
Rest safe in the knowledge that you might not know how your desire will be fulfilled, but you know it’s a done deal.
I like to say, okay show me if there’s something I need to do, right now, that helps manifest my desire. If I get a prompt I act. If not… I persist in steps one and two and tune in every now and then to see if I’ve missed one of those subtle prompts.
You might get an intuitive ‘hit’ or read something that strikes a chord, or someone says something in conversation. Trust that you’re being guided to the people and situations that move you ever closer to your happy outcome.
Allow for something even better than you’ve imagined to show up. Most often I receive things in ways I couldn’t have foreseen as even being possible.
So you missed a sign and an opportunity passed you by. So what…there’s plenty more available. The stream of opportunities is never going to run dry. Remember, the universal laws of life are unlimited and there’s no shortage of anything.
Lastly, I wish you a whole lot of love on your journey.
Now take a close look at your own life. What’s one area that you’d like to tweak a little, or even start over?
Can you proactively use these pillars to make your journey easier and more joyful?
