Would you like to see diamonds where someone else merely sees rocks?
Would you like to be able to stop where you’re headed, take a moment to be aware, and then step onto a grand and glorious new path that’s incredibly successful and fulfilling for your life?
Would you like to recognize those defining moments when they come along instead of missing each wonderful blossoming opportunity?
C’mon on…you’ve gotta be saying yes.
I’m not going to say life is hard. Although sometimes it is.
I’m not going to say it’s scary. Although there are times when it feels that way.
I’m not going to say it’s filled with problems. Although every now and then that seems to be the truth.
I’m not going to say anything negative about life, despite the fact that I’ve had my fair share of truly, deeply, crazy negative experiences. Because regardless of the times my life was driving me crazy, all the while it was calling me to stand in the fullest possibility of my shining self. As it is you.
When it seems that life is driving you crazy it’s really calling you to think the higher thought. To dance with the divine in the way we are all meant to. To lead a life of your choosing, rather than the one you mostly unconsciously, built.
How do we answer that call when all we seem to see is how crazy life is and there are rocks, and more rocks as far as our eye can see? We want to believe in gleaming diamonds…but where the heck are they?
Firstly give up and give in
You can’t reform your world by forcing conditions to change.
Stop trying to right the ‘wrongs’ from the outside in. It’s a strategy that’s doomed to fail because you’re dealing with the effect and not the cause.
Every day brings a new invitation. An invitation to step up our game.
How could you love more?
Could you have a more compassionate heart?
How could you operate at a greater level of excellence?
Are you expressing a generosity of spirit?
Accept the invitation.
The universe is in league with us, it automatically adjusts our experiences to match us, to match who we’re being in this moment. We don’t want to learn how to cope with the ‘wrong’s in our life, we want to create entirely new experiences, safe in the knowledge that the universe or God or our source is our silent partner.
It’s not about the ‘stuff’
It’s time to forgo the notion that you’re living in a world filled with objects. I know, it looks that way and it’s not always easy to see it differently.
But we’re actually living in a world that’s filled with consciousness or energy.
That’s what we’re called upon to see, in order to find a deeper meaning and purpose in life.
What is it that resonates with your heart and soul?
Are you hanging on to a job you really hate, or a relationship that doesn’t serve either of you any longer?
Or are you simply miserable because everything that can go wrong has?
What is it that you could do that would allow you to live an authentic truth each and every day? Are you deliberately operating from the authentic you?
Maybe you view your reality as something that happens to you, despite your best efforts. Maybe you’ve bought into the notion that you’re powerless amidst all these trials and tribulations.
Time to get out the duster (dust cloth to some)
And get rid of the notion that you’re a powerless speck of dust in the universe. Oh no, brilliant souls, you are so much more.
Your desires are the language of spirit seeking expression, Honour them. If we fall, we pick ourselves up and dust ourselves off and go back to the drawing board.
We need to know how to be the parent of our new diamond bright state. We need to learn how to use all the skills, talents and abilities that were our gifts from the get go, we need to know how to birth our new life.
Our imagination, our consciousness is the doorway to our heaven on earth…it connects the spiritual to the physical. And we need to use it to focus beyond our current experiences if we’re to be able to change them.
Working the percentages
We know consciousness consists of our conscious and subconscious minds. We know the conscious mind is the realm of effect and the subconscious responsible for cause. We know the conscious is able to select whilst the subconscious can only accept.
To be a master of our life experiences we need to understand how it all fits together.
And here’s something else it’d be good to know, which most of us probably didn’t.
According to Dr. Bruce Lipton, neuroscientists have shown that the conscious mind is responsible for only five per cent or less of what we get up to during the day, and that’s being generous.
Which means that our subconscious mind is running the show. We knew that didn’t we?
Our subconscious…filled with things we picked up as kids, beliefs that we inherited from others, ideas that we accepted about who we are that probably really suck…is running the show. Yikes.
It’s time to switch up those percentages so we can see more diamonds and less rocks. They are there…right under our noses…our subconscious isn’t yet programmed to see them so they don’t appear in our world.
The bottom line
We need to reprogramme our subconscious so that it’s full of great thoughts and feeling habits. And yes we can do this, and yes, it might take a while and I’ll talk more about this in the next post in the ‘what everyone needs to know about life’ series. ‘Cos there’s a lot of stuff to talk about.
For now, baby steps.
Let’s focus on being more conscious in the day. How about increasing what we’re conscious of by another five percent? It’s not too much to ask and could make a colossal difference to what’s going in in our world.
It is important to remember that not every thought is creative. Only those which are repeated and believed to be true, or those which are connected to feelings, create the circumstances and events that we encounter. That’s a great place to start.
Emotions are creative. Anger, fear, love or joy are creative . Let’s begin being more aware by consciously seeking things that are joyful, by noticing the circumstances that feel good, by giving thanks for all the lovely simplicities of the day. Relish those feelings and visit them as often as possible in your day.
Notice the difference between feeling sadness and dissatisfaction or feeling love and gratitude and guard your subconscious well. Be really careful of the emotions which you let in, just as you would be discriminating as to who steps into your home.
Your turn. Are you ready to up your game? What tiny step can you take? We can all encourage each other with new ideas, and you may just have the one that someone really needed to hear today.
Thanks for being so insightful and amazing and reading and sharing.
Encourage one another.
