So many situations in life make us feel powerless: Loss of jobs, failed relationships, lost friendships, physical illnesses...there can be so many that sometimes we feel overwhelmed, depressed, and anxious. But in reality, each one of these “losses” is actually leading us into a transformational cocoon of sorts: transformation of our thoughts, location, lifestyle choices, or relationships.
Universal energy (whether you call it God or not) WANTS us to be ultimately happy. Teaching us how to share the innate love and joy that is inside each and every one of us is their ultimate goal. We cannot share that love if we are trapped in a dead-end job, in a loveless relationship, not sharing with friends or taking care of ourselves physically. Remember, our thoughts manifest what we believe is our reality. So today, ask for loving guidance to shift those negative, power-sucking thoughts and step into love and joy. I know, I know, how do you DO that when you are feeling lost, alone, or powerless to control the situation?
Start with gratitude…real, honest gratitude. Thank the universe for what is present in your life that is good and pure (this part is easy!) “Thank you for….the roof over my head, the rain for my garden, the clothes I am wearing today, running water” (you got this!). Next thank the universe for the things that you are expecting, AS IF YOU HAVE THEM RIGHT NOW! “Thank you for… my fulfilling job, relationships that let me shine, feeling healthy and whole” (a little harder but trust me, it gets easier the more you do it!).
Know that you are surrounded by your “team” who is cheering you on. If it is in your warehouse (see July’s blog), then it’s lined up and waiting for YOU! Remember that spiritual guidance comes in even the most subtle forms: something that catches your eye on the internet, a friend mentioning a job opportunity, a random idea that pops into your head (it helps if you do not wash yourself in negative media). Watch for these spiritual nudges and do not dismiss them as simply “your thoughts.” (Some of the best inventions came out of someone’s nudges! Think Disney or Einstein). My work has led me to fully embrace the fact that there are NO coincidences in life.
You CAN take back your power, and that’s the most empowering thought of all!
Angelic blessings be with you, my friends!
