My Thoughts Create My Reality

ThoughtsRealityI’ve been reading, following and listening to all of the posts on Facebook, on TV, the radio, and to what people are saying and feeling these days… it’s like a runaway train! All this doom and gloom seems to make almost everyone jump on board and explain their less than positive lives. It seems that there is chaos everywhere!

Over the last year and a half, I’ve experienced some very intense personal spiritual growth. The process has made me look at myself, my life, my beliefs, and this 3D life as a whole. More and more I have come to realize that I’m responsible for all of it… and that my thoughts and vibrations create my world.

Where I choose to dwell in my thoughts will determine the reality I create for myself. If my thoughts are about doom and gloom and how bad life, friends, work, etc are, that is where my reality will be. My vibrations will lower to meet those thoughts, and that is exactly what I will create for myself.

The news is full of doom and gloom. The world is in chaos. Politics are in total chaos. The politicians are spewing vile energy against one another. I found that if I follow it too closely I feel my vibrations lowering. I have decided that I am going to sit the primaries out and wait until there are at least 2 final candidates from which to choose, and then see if they can at least be civil to each other and explain what they would like to do for us if they are elected. I used this as an example of what I am feeling right now and how I am setting my vibrations for my highest and best.

I have also chosen not to be on Facebook very much lately. I just don’t want to read a lot of the posts that are talking about all the sludge, grime, and negative stuff that people seem to be experiencing. I feel that if our thoughts create our reality, taking the time to put those thoughts into written words just amplifies and solidifies those thoughts, then creating our reality even quicker and more solidly based on those vibrations.

I decided to take a step back and think about what all of that negativity means and is it for me and do I want to take it all on. I quickly realized that I do not. And I can change my thoughts to more positive thoughts and actions. This choice brings my vibrations up and changes my reality to what I really want and need in my life.

Things are not yet perfect in my life but it is a work in progress. I do have bad days… but instead of dwelling on them constantly, I try to find all that I am grateful for, and there are so many things. I do not always succeed right away, but even then, I keep working on getting past it and on changing my reality.

This story happened to me in late January through early February this year and shows the process of getting from the negative to the positive:

I’ve been going through a difficult personal issue and there has been one person that I have been extremely angry with, and I have had some very dark emotions involving this person. I have bird feeders out my back door that have a lot of birds that visit and they brings me such joy and love even on my dark days. Well during this difficult time a pretty large mockingbird showed up at the feeders and started chasing all the other birds away. It would sit in a huge willow tree just over the feeders and not let any of the birds feed. They would be attacked by the mockingbird. I did everything I could to shoo the bad bird away. I even got so angry at one point that I thought if I had a BB gun I would just shoot it and make the problem go away. (I would not have actually shot the mockingbird).

Then I realized that the mockingbird was symbolic of my anger towards this person. So I asked for guidance and decided to send as much love to that person and to the mockingbird as I could possibly send and to change my thoughts from anger to love. I did this off and on for most of that day. The tension started to lessen and the vibrations began to rise. The next morning the birds were feeding and only occasionally the mockingbird would chase them away. Over time the mockingbird was not bothering the other birds. I even saw the mockingbird on a feeder with some of the other birds. I also noticed that when I would start letting myself become angry again the mockingbird would return and harass the other birds. I just turned up the love again. Now I haven’t seen the mockingbird in a very long time.

I am still dealing with the situation involving the person that I was so angry with but now I feel love. I laugh when I think about the mockingbird and wanting to shoot it. I still send it love too.

My thoughts are my reality. So I am trying to have a very conscience awareness of what I am thinking. If I am in a bad place, I now I try to start looking for what I need to change to move away from that energy.

I’m also so very grateful for my soul family! Each and every one has assisted in some way or another in my getting to where I am today.

To Give AND To Receive!

To receive is just as much from the heart as giving!

To receive is just as much from the heart as giving!

Much has been said about allowing ourselves to receive (which is just as important as giving), but how many of us really know how to do it? I would count myself among those who – rather unwittingly – seem to resonate with the old adage “it is better to give than to receive.”

I’ve always considered myself a giving person. Giving of my time, energy, compassion, laughter, and yes, some of the more material things in life too (my present wrapping skills are top notch!). I’m a natural giver. It comes to me very easily. I do what I do because I want to, and because I know it makes a difference in people’s lives. I like making people feel special, and I’ve been told I have a particular talent for it.

However, receiving is another story!

Oh, I know that you can’t have giving without receiving. I also know that someone else has always been on the receiving end of my giving. Becoming the receiver myself has always been difficult. It’s not that I’m not appreciative. I am! Deeply and truly appreciative. However, on some level, a part of me seems to wonder if I really deserve it. I wonder if you feel the same way?

Of course, it’s easier with the smaller things. You made cookies for me? Thank you, that was very nice. I need a ride to work while my car is in the shop? Your kindness is so appreciated.  And when I needed to shoulder to cry on, you were the very support I needed.  But as soon as a certain threshold is reached, that little voice inside my head pipes up and says that it is too much.  Too much money spent, too much of an imposition for you, too much of yourself shared with me. “Who am I,” the voice proclaims, “to deserve so much?”  This often stops me in my tracks and causes me to feel hesitant, insecure, and even bad about being on the receiving end of such a lovely gift. Why do I not feel worthy enough to receive such a large expression of kindness? From being on the giving end, I can tell you that I enjoy making people feel special and doing things to let them know I care.  I certainly feel as though they are worthy of my gifts. Why then, would the same not be true for me?

Clearly, this is something for me to explore in more depth. In the meantime, I am going to work on receiving with gratitude instead of meeting it with insecurity. In fact, this may be the only New Year’s resolution I set this year! If you find that you also have difficulty receiving, I invite you to join me. We’ll soon find that is better to both give AND to receive!
