Imagine a golden door that is half open. A shaft of light emits from the doorway while the rest is shrouded in darkness.
The light holds great promise of a better life, one that will lead you to greater abundance and happiness. As you enter the door, the light becomes so bright that it is blinding. You cannot see what is in front of you, but you push forward, believing that it is the best way forward. As your eyes adjust to the light, a beautiful garden appears. It is filled with every flower, tree and shrub imaginable and its beauty is hypnotic. But you are not allowed in so as to preserve its perfection. The light is too bright, the people on this side do not talk to you and the life you thought would be better is entirely foreign to you. You feel as unhappy as before! Despondently, you take yourself back to the door to resume the life that you had but did not appreciate. What if the door is closed and you cannot get back? The life you thought was not good enough is suddenly warm and comforting to you. What will you do?
This is a scenario close to “The grass is always greener on the other side” story, but not quite. While there may seem to be better options available to you, your life may indeed be very unhappy and financially difficult. It is no wonder that you would take the golden door if offered it! However, do you need to? What if you could change your life for the better on your own, just by taking charge of your thoughts and your perceptions?
Your world will not change if you do not change your perception of your place within it, what you deserve and the responsibility you hold in terms of the power of your thoughts and words. Changing homes, schools, states or countries of residences will not solve any problems if you have not taken stock of why life may be difficult for you! Why are people not talking to you? Why are you unhappy? Why is life seemingly hard for you while it is easy for others? Listen to your words and reflect on what you are putting out to the Universe every day and then you may be able to see the answers.
What you do and say says everything about how you feel about yourself and how much responsibility you take, or lay on others, for the situations you find yourself in. Are you open to seeing that your behaviour affects and is reflected in the responses of people you interact with? Can you see that you are either attracting or repelling the abundance of the Universe with every positive or negative thought, word and deed? YOU are the creator of YOUR world and only YOU can change it!
In the same vein, you cannot help anyone who does not wish to be helped. Nor should you lose yourself in the woes of the world, as doing so will only add to them. All you can do, which will make the most difference, is to be the best person you can be.
The first powerful thing to do is to let go of the past and embrace the future. Live in the moment and be thankful for your life. See life as a blessing and a gift and filter out anything that is not of importance to you or your loved ones. So, every day, write and say three affirmations that brings your consciousness to the present and on positive goals for the future.
The next thing to do is to be specific and clear on what it is you wish to change, release or manifest in your life. State it all clearly and concisely to the Universe, then let go of all attachment to it.
Thirdly, make a plan. What actions do you need to take to make your wishes into reality. Take charge and put them into practice without hesitation or doubt.
Lastly, look at your belief system and work to release and change old negative thought patterns and feelings that have kept you stuck for so long. Focus on love and see as much good as you can in all things. Believe in the power of your mind and its connection to the Universal mind to create all that you need and want in your life.
One mind is connected to all minds which are connected to God’s mind.
We are One.
