Your life is filled with choices from the moment you awaken until the moment you fall asleep. You decide, for example, to open your eyes or not when your alarm rings. You decide if you will get up, get out of bed, and go to work or get to your day’s tasks. You decide what to wear, what to eat, what to think, what to say, and so much more.
Your soul loves choice! If you were denied the gift of free will you would find life very boring. God could have forced every single one of you to live a life of bliss – one with no choices whatsoever – but in that reality, very few of you would be inspired to learn and grow. You would have little inspiration to create. You would enjoy life for a while. Eventually you would get bored.
Imagine you are gifted a vacation for an entire lifetime. You will stay in the same beautiful home. You would be told to do wonderful activities every day. You would be given wonderful meals every day. You would have no choice in anything, even though everything handed to you would be good. You might enjoy this life for years, perhaps decades. Eventually, however, you would crave your freedom. You would want choice.
Interestingly, many of you have a love/hate relationship with your choices…
If someone robs you of your choices you feel deprived. If the grocery store is out of your favorite ice cream, some of you would be frustrated. If your boss “breathes over your shoulder” and dictates how you are to perform every little task, you’re likely to become annoyed. If you were told that in order to be healthy you had to severely limit your diet, many of you would get very upset and even rebel, eating more of the food you think you “shouldn’t!”
You love choice, and yet many choices agonize or irritate you. You look in your closet in the morning, for example, and can’t figure out which outfit to wear. You want to eat well but don’t know what is really good for you. You may have to make financial decisions, decide which house to buy, where to live, or even how to care for a dying loved one.
So how do you go about loving your choices with as much enthusiasm and excitement as your soul does? In reality it isn’t so hard after all…
You start by understanding that your choices are how you explore your likes and dislikes. Your choices give you freedom to see who you are and who you can become. In every present moment you have the opportunity to make new choices!
What agonizes you is feeling as if you could make a wrong choice, a choice that will lead to loss, upset, unhappiness, criticism or other unpleasant feelings. However, if you make a choice that feels good now, and then you make a choice that feels good in the next now, and so on and so forth, then your life will be a series of happy “nows!” From our perspective, which is based on an understanding of the vibrational nature of reality, no choice is more important to your future than the energy with which you make it right here, right now.
We have to repeat that – No choice is more important to your future than the energy with which you make it right here, right now.
Suppose you feel fearful about your financial state or your financial future. This fear blocks the abundance that is trying to come into your life. It opens you up to the predatory forces in the universe. Someone recommends a “get rich quick investment” to you. It looks great on paper! You trust this person. You make the investment. A year later you realized you’re going to lose all that money. The choice was not the problem, dear ones. The energy of lack that led to it is what caused you the agony.
So rather than agonizing about your choices, pay more attention to your energy. If you had been in a vibration of faith, abundance, and gratitude for all you had, you would have paid attention to your instincts at the time and those subtle feelings of, “Well maybe this doesn’t feel quite right.” You would have been guided towards better opportunities that were a vibrational match. You would have kept your money and made more.
Suppose you stand in your closet agonizing about which outfit to wear from a feeling of being “frumpy.” Nothing is going to look great. Instead shut your eyes and feel your radiant light and inner beauty. Tell yourself you’re gorgeous inside and out. Feel it. Now open your eyes. Choose an outfit. You’ll look radiant in anything.
Say you need to choose a retirement home for an aging parent. This can be one of life’s most difficult choices. It doesn’t have to be. Focus first on how much you love your parent. Imagine them receiving impeccable care. Love yourself enough to tell yourself you have help from the Source who also loves your parents. In this energy you will be both guided and discerning. If you make your choice from fear, you’ll listen to others above your inner voice.
If you don’t like the choice you made yesterday, or even two seconds ago, you can shift your energy and make a newer, better choice. You can “change on a dime” as your saying goes. You can shift directions at any time. The universe doesn’t keep score. This might make others around you uncomfortable, but you’ll live a happier life… and everyone around you will have to grow! Your soul will be thrilled!
Dear ones, you cannot make a wrong choice. You can only make choices that give you outcomes you enjoy and choices that don’t. However, you always have the chance to change again and again and again! You always have the chance to correct your energy and attract absolute miracles. You need never ever suffer from the effects of a past choice if you’re willing to get your energy right in the present. Now is the time to enjoy your freedom. And Now. And Now again!
God Bless You! We love you so very much.
