“If you are positive, you’ll see opportunities instead of obstacles.” Widad Akrawi
Being positive or negative is a conscious choice we make. To me, it takes a lot more energy to be negative. We are fighting against our true nature, which is love. When you find yourself being drawn down to a low vibration thought, it is harder to pull yourself back up that hill. Before you begin to focus on what if in a negative outcome, try on what if in a positive outcome. Pause and ask yourself which thought feels better. Just this simple exercise will lead you to examine what is happening. You can also utilize WAIT or “what am I thinking?” So many times we just go with the thought instead of dissecting it and seeing if it even makes sense. Once we go into projection mode and see outcomes through tunnel vision, such as “it always happens that way for me” it is really hard to stop that train. The key is to catch the “stinkin thinkin” early on so it does not become the go-to in every situation, developing a habit of negatively projecting outcomes.
Dear Angels, there are many times when I want to just tell people “stop it” as in the old Bob Newhart skit from his comedy show. While it was hilariously funny, it made total sense. We keep trying to row our boat upstream and wonder why it feels so hard to accomplish anything. The stream is not the problem. It is just doing what streams do. We blame the stream for being too hard to navigate and keep on rowing our boat up that stream, fighting the current all along the way. We even balk at the idea of changing course and flowing downstream as suggested by well-intentioned friends, parents or life coaches. We think that hard work and struggle is what leads to the biggest rewards.
Dear Ones, life was never meant to be a struggle. You came here into this place of contrast and were given the ability to think and choose for yourself how to respond to the challenges and struggles. If you will allow yourself to go with the flow of energy within your earth field instead of fighting it, you will be amazed at how easy it feels. As you slowly and methodically flow along, you become less tense because the body and mind are not working so hard and you begin to relax. It is sometimes at this point that the brain starts questioning if you made the right decision and starts calling up old teachings and beliefs. We encourage you to ask yourself which feels better, the downstream energy or the struggle as you fight the current? Ask why you want to manifest the things you desire. If you break it down, isn’t it to make you feel better, to make life easier for you? Stop doing things just because that is how they have always been done. Find the simpler, easier way. Let go of the oars and allow yourself to get into the rhythm and flow as you align with the earth energy which is in sync with the universal energy of all that is. Dear Ones, it feels easy because it is your natural state of being. Enjoy the time you have while you are here. Just stop, take a breath and move back into your heart as you observe the alignment with the universal energy of love.
Dear Angels, thank you. I love you. Namaste y’all.
Today, I promise to stay in alignment with my true self, loving every minute of the experience.
