Would you like to be more involved, consciously, in creating your reality and choosing your experiences? There are ‘steps’ in the process of conscious creating which, when followed, can allow you to change your perceptions and gain new realizations and insights into your patterns of creating reality.
In conscious creating there are two things of primary importance: Maintain your connection to Unconditional Love and Be in the moment. Learn to make these two things your first response to any situation. Don’t react-step into love and into the moment. This takes practice! From a ‘place’ of love and being in the moment, you do not react from the past and its patterns, emotions and fears or from the future (future reactions are usually based in fear also; i.e., what might happen.) Learn to respond (not react) from a moment of now, pure in unconditional love. From this place, any action or speech will be guided and directed by unconditional love. What is truly for the highest good of one will in turn be for the highest good of all.
These are the steps to conscious creating:
- Take responsibility for your reality. Be honest with yourself, look at yourself with opennessn and be willing to see. The only thing consistent through all of your life experiences is YOU. If you are not enjoying what you are creating, look within.
Get clear on what you want. Ask yourself questions like these: Is this desire coming from a “me” place or a “highest good” place? What are you becoming? Does this support what you want to become? How do you see yourself? Does this help you to see yourself in a positive way? Does this help you be in a “place” of love?
Change your thoughts and patterns. Be aware of your thoughts. Your thoughts create your reality and your perceptions. Each thought has a result. Like attracts like. What are you attracting with your thoughts and your state of mind?
Retrain yourself to positive thought patterns and habits. Don’t judge yourself for ‘slipping”; that pulls you into it. Just intend to be aware. Each time you catch yourself in a negative thought or pattern you don’t wish to keep, you are learning and growing. Each time this happens, ‘rephrase’ it in a positive way; i.e., “I’m so dumb, how could I do that?” can become “I’m learning and growing in each moment and each experience. I radiate love and wisdom in all that I do.”
- Realize/Recognize that in each moment you choose your place of perception. This can be perception from a place of love or from a place of fear. There are no others, only variations of these. You can consciously choose to change your perception in any moment. Thinking that you cannot do this (change your perception) is a limitation you place on yourself. It’s a way of saying, “I’m helpless, I’m stuck, poor me”. Remember, YOU create your reality. You can do this with love and empowerment or with fear and lack. It is always your choice. As you practice being aware of your choices in each moment, you will notice it becomes easier and more natural to choose love rather than fear. (Feels much nicer, too!)
Begin to send energy into the areas you wish to explore or create or change in your reality and life. This can be done first on an energy/mental level through visualization. See yourself in the scenarios you wish to create, with the events/props/people you wish to attract. Play out situations. Feel, see and hear what it will be like to have that reality. Allow your ‘imagination’ to have fun with this. There are no limits, only those that you choose to create or impose upon yourself.
From this visual exploring you will begin to have a sense of greater clarity as to what you wish to create. Be honest with yourself in your exploring. Explore also what lessons and areas of growth this new area of reality will bring. Are these lessons/growth areas you wish to explore? Can you see the need for growth and expansion in these areas? All areas of reality, all experiences will bring growth and learning. This is good; however, we can choose the areas in which we wish to experience growth by taking responsibility for our creating. Dreams may also be used for exploring and creating on this level. For those who work with lucid dreaming, this is a powerful creation tool.
- As you become clear on what you wish to create begin to focus physical energy into creating it. (I would recommend that openness to highest good is always best. Be open to surprises and doorways of opportunity you haven’t planned on!) This focusing of physical energy can be done by learning about the areas of reality you wish to attract. Take classes, workshops, read books, put yourself in positions to interact with others who have similar interests and desires who have accomplished similar goals. By doing these things, you openly state your desire, interest and intention to the Universe. This is a physical reality, so we have to begin the process of physical change by taking action.
See yourself as successful in what you wish to create. Know that you will accomplish your goals. Be open and alert to doorways, signs and opportunities where spirit guides, angels and friends may seek to assist you. Do not be so focused on “doing it your way” that you miss opportunities to be assisted. Realize that assistance comes in many shapes and forms and is often not what we would have expected.
Honor yourself as you begin to see your creations manifest in your reality. You may begin to see ‘small’ events or things happen in your reality first. These are the ‘foundation laying’, so honor and appreciate them. But do not stop there. (Don’t think, “oh well, this is all I can do.”) Recognize it as a sign, a confirmation from the Universe that you are on the right path.
If opportunities continually appear to lead you in other directions and your chosen direction has no opportunities appear or feels like a brick wall, be open to the possibility that the Universe/your guidance may be leading you in other directions. Explore these and see where they take you! This can be done while continuing to explore your chosen area and can often increase your success and aid you in becoming more flexible.
- Be open to change. Recognize that the only consistency in the Universe is change. Honor your achievements, growth, and your creations, but be aware that all changes. Our goals and desires will change, sometimes after we have achieved them and sometimes before they are completed. This can mean there is a need for learning and exploring in new areas, and perhaps you’ve already gotten what you needed from your experiences, or perhaps there is a new area which would benefit you more. Always remember … change happens. Don’t take it personally.
Have fun with life. You are here because you wanted to be here and chose this experience. Make the most of it; find things you love to do and people you love to be with and make these the substance of your reality. When you are doing things you love, you are radiating the energy of love. This is the grandest thing you can do, so find ways to put love into each moment.
