“Some changes look negative on the surface but you will soon realize that space is being created in your life for something new to emerge.”--Eckhart Tolle
My mom always said that when things are falling apart they are coming together in a new way. We are in a state of constant change. Our environment, the cells of our bodies, our thoughts, and our lives are ever evolving. Often, when we think something is ending it’s really the beginning of something else. We can choose to focus on the ending part or we can direct our thoughts to what’s next, or what we’d like to be next….if we don’t yet know what that is.
Don’t let any place that you are standing in frighten you. It’s just temporary and it’s just giving you an idea of what you’ve been doing with your energy or vibration -meaning how you’ve been feeling and what thoughts you’ve been thinking. There’s always a way out if you will allow a solution to come to you by choosing a positive perspective rather than a lack perspective. Stay positive by choosing thoughts that feel good such as, “Everything is coming at the perfect time and in perfect order. Everything is unfolding perfectly. I’m okay where I am and I’m eager for more. It’s all happening for me at the right time. Things are aways working out for me".
Change doesn’t have to be scary or traumatic. It’s just our fear of the unknown that makes change seem scary. Trust that there is a bigger picture. You may not be able to see the whole thing yet, but it will reveal itself as you go. If you will relax and go with the flow, you will see that things are always working out for you, for your highest good, and for the good of others around you too.
If you find yourself in a situation where you feel like there are no options available to you or you’re feeling overwhelmed or trapped, then try this box exercise. It’s a great way to improve your outlook by shifting your thoughts into a more positive place.
Box Exercise: Imagine yourself inside of a dark box. Now begin to imagine that you are creating some big, bright, beautiful windows that make you feel free and comfortable and expansive. Notice there is light streaming in all around you. Now imagine as many doors as you like so that you can easily come and go. Open all the doors and leave them wide open so your box feels open and airy and full of light and opportunity. The doors represent all the new opportunities that are now arising and allowing you to move in lots of different directions with as many paths as you choose. There is not just one right path. There are many right paths. You are free and have new possibilities. You no longer have to feel confined or trapped. Say to yourself, "I am always expanding. I’m okay where I am, and I'm so excited about what's coming. I am open to new possibilities, and new opportunities are arising!”
Abraham-Hicks says the best way to accomplish an improved environment is to focus upon the best things about where you currently are so that you move into a state of appreciation. Make little mental lists of things you appreciate throughout the day so that you continue flowing good-feeling energy toward what is working in your life…which will then attract more positive things into your life.
In love and light,
