Daily Life’s Opportunities

“Every day, in our ordinary daily life, the Universe presents us with opportunities for growth.  Most of the time these opportunities are small – how to temper our impatience in the line at the grocery check-out, or remembering to stop and reflect on the beauty of the sky as we are walking to an activity.

But sometimes, our simple interactions with the conditions of daily living can be life-changing.

Whether it is confronting painful truths about how our behaviors are impacting the quality of our lives, or reaping the joy of a successful habit change, every time we take a moment to understand what is happening and make an alteration in our course, we have used this discomfort or pain or bliss to assist us on our path of becoming a better human being.

To me, this is what life’s journey is about. Understanding that everything we encounter every moment of every day is occurring so that we can learn to move forward because of, or despite our life circumstances.

Life is not going to magically get better when outer circumstances change. Life is going to expand beyond all expectations by beginning to accept that every circumstance presented can be seen as an opportunity for change.

In order to respond to life’s challenges, we are well served when we can muster the courage to stay open to the experience.

It is natural human behavior to respond to painful experiences by closing our hearts, by using the experience to reinforce our belief that life is unfair, or we are destined to be unhappy, or we are somehow ‘not good enough’ for good things to come our way.

If we can walk our minds away from old self-limiting thought patterns that close us down, and instead change the mind-channel to a station where we can see things with new vision fostered by an open heart, our growth potential becomes unlimited.

Every time we are successful at opening instead of closing, we are building up our reserves of courage and strength to face all the challenges that come our way.

Every day presents opportunities for growth. Growth can occur when we allow our hearts to stay open.”

Manifest A New You

“Fear, doubt, lack of trust and self sabotage are all expressions of unbalanced lower 3 chakras.  First, you have to disconnect from these feelings to purify your capacity for more positives.  Perhaps allowing deep meditation or  walking outside in nature would help to clear your state of mind and help you to feel that clarity of mind and emotions.

Next, let go of  the negative thinking and the negative self talk to release the doubts. It’s time to stop that mental cycle! Possibly you need to unplug the wires from all of those who send or project those very energies onto you.  Release the thoughts of past hurts and the pain that may have contributed to these unhealthy attitudes.

However when such emotions come up for you to revisit, it is often occurring for deeper healing. Go into what continues to cause you those doubts and fears. What has happened to give you such negative energies?  Consider what are you avoiding now.  As each of us learns and grows, we are better able to see those unhealed wounds from a new perspective and eventually release and heal them for good.

If you feel you are not worthy of the opportunities coming to you now or of your abundance, then you will block it from coming to you. The power of belief is so strong. You must feel deep down you can do something to manifest the life you want.  Start to believe that you are worthy of it!  Valuing your worth is your primary mission in life, your gift to have and your skill that is worth sharing.  After all, your heart is worth loving.

You can manifest all of your dreams but you must release all of your doubts within. Let go of all of your fears within. Be in a state of trust. Trust the universe and yourself!  Know that you can accomplish anything you set your mind to. Be open hearted and open minded to receive in many different ways and forms.  Often what we dream of is presented to us in different ways.  Be ready to accept the new opportunities that come each day!

A great start to help you dream and manifest your new future is a vision board. Make one! Meditate on it. Pray for it. Say affirmations. They do work! Once you release the doubts and believe and trust, things will begin to shift for you. 🌈”
