In these days of economic downturn, job loss, disappearances of investments & funds, foreclosures & loss of faith, the common question I hear is “Why is this happening?” Well allow me to say that it is a useless question. And if I stay there then all I will be doing is wasting my days trying to “figure out why!” What is gone is gone!
The only really valuable question is:
“What Can I learn from it?”
Because this question then leads me to ask “What do I choose to do now?” Now this question is really empowering and worthwhile asking!!
The “why” question simply perplexes, leaves me disempowered – that I might never get out of – and hardly ever leaves me satisfied. It never gives a good answer just more why’s.
|So don’t try to “figure it out.”
Do as Bob Newhart says and just
Stop wasting energy & just focus on what you now wish to create. There is now a clean slate in front of you where you can create a-n-y-t-h-i-n-g!!
Keep moving forward!!
There is nothing behind you – it is all gone & done! Focusing on how it worked or did not work won’t change a darn thing! The future is not guaranteed for any of us. Just focusing on what is possible right now is what best serves you. Being your highest thoughts & your highest self right now is all there really is.
So on this day of Thanksgiving, I am thankful for having you in my life; I am thankful for the life that God grants me; I am thankful for the freedoms we have; Thnakful for the ability to let go of the past & for the will to make life work – right now!- no matter what shows up!
“Thoughts are like magnets drawing effects to you…”
Conversations With God – Neale Donald Walsch (pages 188-189)
It’s truly amazing how our thoughts can be made real just by our intention.
Consider this : First you think a thought, then you state that thought and solely by expressing it you have made it real! It is out there so it realy does exist – now you have to live it!
Just yesterday, my brother-in-law & I were driving back from Orlando (We took our family there to get away from the after effects of Wilma). He was making phone calls to see if electric was back at his house (my house had it back). After driving for 3 hours, he was not getting the answer he wanted. I told him he can stay with me until he gets it back, but that did not satisfy him. He looks at me and says “I create the possibility that I will have electricity when I get home!” He said it emphatically & with such clear intention. I blew it off as wishful thinking, when no more than 10 minutes had gone by & he gets a call from his neighbor saying – “the power just came back!” Now call this pure luck or coincidences, but I do’nt know if that is all there is to it.
Here’s another example of why. A client was withholding paying me $18K for services provided. Now months have passed & I tried letters, follow up calls & even nasty calls from “my lawyer” nothing was getting him to pay. He would call me to do more work & my withholding doing more work for him did nothing, but get him pissed off. I tried everything. I was totally fustrated, since he is no longer returning phone calls, & saw suing him the only option. Then I thought – “I will will him to pay me!” Funny ha! Will him to pay, but sure enough! Within 1/2 hr I get a call from him. I firmly tell him that he is not getting anything until we resolve the outstanding matter & that I need a check in hand – this afternoon. By the end of day the check was in my hand.
As Dr. Wayne Dyer says
“view intention – not as something you do – but as an energy you’re a part of.”
Whatever you call it, luck; coincidence; wishful thinking; I choose to see it as intending my reality. This way I have 100% responsibility of the outcome. This is exciting & empowering since nothing ‘just happens’ to us but we have the ability to define an outcome. If I want a positive result I just intend it to be positive & as this theory goes – it will become a positive effect. So now I intend to be it.
Think it -Believe it – Live it!
