We create our own realities every moment of every day. When something happens in our life then we chose to think about it in a certain way, which in turn creates our reality. An event that happens to a group of people will have different meaning for every person in that group. Most of the time we take on the socially accepted explanation and meaning of an event and adopt it as our own, but what would happen if you chose to believe something different?
For example, if I am experiencing some pain or discomfort in my body, I could choose to believe that something is wrong with me or I could choose to believe that this is wonderful and exciting as it is just my body adapting and adjusting to some higher vibrations of energy. Sounds a bit delusional doesn’t it! But trust me, it works!
Another example could be choosing to believe that losing your job or having your work hours cut back as a great opportunity to now have time to try something new. Most of us would focus on the loss – loss of income, loss of self-worth, loss of self-importance etc. We are generally socially conditioned to look at life in a certain way, but if you are able to break away from this and come up with your own explanation as to why something is happening, I promise it will take you into a totally different headspace and energy vibration.
This is not just about thinking positively, it is about a deep belief and conviction about how something is in your life. You decide what meaning this event has in your life. You decide how it is now going to affect you. After all you create your own life each and every moment. You are in command of the process of your life. Even though you live side by side with other people who co-create with you, it is still your life and you get to choose its meaning.
I like to make a game of this and have some fun. When something happens to me or around me, I try and come up with the most fun explanation that I can. I do feel a bit silly and delusional sometimes, but experience has shown me that it not only brings peace, but wonderful new opportunities to me when I do choose my own creative and exciting meaning.
If we are all creating our own realities about life, then wouldn’t it be more fun it we chose to create something good and exciting instead of a meaning that includes stress and suffering. The power is really in our hands to believe anything we want about each and every circumstance that we are in.
Even if you have a medical condition that requires treatment you can still go ahead with the treatment and attach any meaning that you want to about the illness and about the treatment. You could decide that the treatment is a way of bringing your already healed and perfect body back into alignment with all parts of you. You could decide that this illness is the perfect time for you to integrate higher vibrations into your body. It really doesn’t matter what you choose to believe or give meaning to, but if you bring a consciousness to your meaning (in other words you choose the meaning) rather than an unconscious meaning (one that you have adopted from society or people around you without questioning it) then you empower your own life.
This does not mean that “bad” things won’t happen to you in your life, but when you choose a different meaning to these annoying or unexpected events then you still hold the power. You are not buying into the unconscious belief that you are a helpless victim to life and that things happen to you. Instead you attach a meaning about how these things have happened FOR you.
So have a go today and attach different meanings to every thing that happens in your life. You get to choose so make it something good!
I believe that knowing who we are at our unique soul level holds the key to living an authentic and joyful life. Once we know who we are, we can begin to BE who we are, and then BECOME who we were always destined to be.
