Embrace Possibility

21 Feb 2016   Shanti Gowans
Have you ever felt like the law of attraction is working against you?  That for some reason you continue to attract things into your life that you don't want? There could be many reasons for this, but primarily it’s because your subconscious is vomiting your non-supportive past programming into your life. What’s worse is when you don’t even know it’s happening until the end result. 
Recall the process of manifestation: 
Beliefs → Thoughts → Feelings → Actions = Results 
Your beliefs start this entire process. Your beliefs are your truth. If you believe that people are annoying and rude- this is what you will see around you. If you believe that people are fascinating individuals with their own characteristic of potential exquisiteness, you will see those people. If you believe that you are not complete without unconditional love - you will continue to see unconditional love. If you believe that you are your own soul mate, and you are willing to give and receive love - you will see and feel love in the world. But if your beliefs are all about lack, blame, victimisation and a host of low vibratory emotions... guess what...you will attract more of that. 

If you want to change your results, then you first need to change your beliefs and your thoughts. Are you ready to step out of the belief that you are not complete, that you deserve more from the world and that somebody has it better than you and that is unfair.

The most effective way to do this is by reprogramming your mind with meditation, supportive beliefs and mantra, or positive affirmations. Be clear that it's no more about negative messages, such as “I can’t”,  no more “should haves”, no more “I’m not getting what others have” because you are getting exactly what you designed, and you can change that by what you think, believe and by taking actions. 

Back in 1964, Mary Poppins taught an entire generation of young people that "a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down". Now the world has grown up, and the spoonful of sugar generation are adults who own and run businesses, and could have children and grandchildren of their own. Yet, the idea of sweetening every experience is like an epidemic. This presents a problem, because not every experience in life is sweet, just like not every effective medicine tastes sugary.
In fact, sometimes you have to ask yourself uncomfortable but important questions to achieve greater success. Without them, you might never reach your full potential.
The questions could include:
- What am I struggling with?
- What isn't working for me?
- What am I afraid of?
- What would I do about it if I had nothing to fear?
- What's stopping me from doing that right now?
- Where will I be one year from now, if I don't take action?
- How will that make me feel?
Sit yourself down, reflect on your life, come to some resolutions for yourself, and convince yourself on the idea of improving your life. Ask yourself the uncomfortable questions, and don't allow yourself to chicken out of answering them. Be honest. Be specific. And after that uncomfortable talk with yourself... once you have the answers... act on them!
Norman Vincent Peale reminded the world: "When you affirm big, believe big and pray big, big things happen". Yet, many people, when looking at their lives and what they want to create, make the mistake of dreaming and playing way too small. It may seem like a lot more work to go big but the truth is that it takes just as much energy to play small as it does to do something on a large scale.

You truly can do anything and here are a few tips to help you get started: 

•  Imagine something you want to do... it can be anything.

Perhaps you want to meet or work with a spiritual mentor, or perhaps you want to go lose weight, or start your own business. Just go ahead and dream, and forget about limitation.

• Write it down.

Write out one thing that you want to do and put it someplace where you'll look at it every day.
This has the effect of making your dream concrete and keeping it at the forefront of your awareness.

• Take small steps.

The journey of a thousand miles starts with one step. Begin today. Plan to do something today to move you in the direction of your wild, impossible dream...and then do it. Then plan something for tomorrow, then the next day and the next day. Thinking big is about embracing possibility. When you embrace possibility, you become a source of excitement and inspiration for others and they will help you.

• Replace any low vibratory word with words such as:

Vital life force energy
I am
He is
She is
I got this!
Design your own list of words, beliefs and actions that carry momentum. And with direction, persistence and collaboration, big things happen.
Step fully into the belief that you are Infinite Awareness, an individuation of the unique and utimate energy source.
