Our Spirits Spring A-New!
As spring begins to show its freshness, we become excited about our possibilities. It is a natural thing for spring to bring to the surface a renewal of our energies. After all, it is part of the life cycle that depicts a new beginning. Take the newness of life as a sign that you are also brand new. The fact is; with every thought, feeling, spoken word, and every action we take… we are born anew. Think about that! Think about the moment you just had. What was your thought? What was your feeling? What if any, was your action? This is important because this is what will create your next moment. If you are on a downward spiral, spinning out of control, all you must do to stop the downward spin is to realize that you are greater than your thoughts. You are greater than the condition or the situation you are in.
If you are stuck in a never ending cycle of repeated failures, or abuse, then you are repeating the same thoughts, the same feelings, the same actions over and over again. Do you want something better for yourself? Do you wish to create a better life, a happier way of being? Then you must change your way of being! Become a conscious thinker and stop allowing your mind to control your journey. You are not your mind! Your mind is a tool, nothing more. If you are in that self defeating cycle you are most likely entertaining negative thoughts and feelings. Whether those thoughts and feelings are going to continue to rule your life, is up to you. Make a choice to take charge of your thoughts instead of your thoughts ruling the roost.
You can make excuses that will prevent you from accomplishing any form of inner peace, or you can simply allow yourself to choose something different. To do so enables you to create something fresh and new for yourself and those around you.
Our feelings around those we love are also creating our relationship with that person. Wow… (Are you saying that it’s my fault that the person that just hurt me, hurt me?) No! Not at all! Follow me closely here. What I am saying is that your way of thinking has created the vibration that brought the equal vibration into your life. Each thought and feeling is a vibration that goes out and is mingled with similar vibrations. These vibrations then return to the source, bringing back the vibration that is equal to its value with it. If this is the vibration of fear, then it will reap the results of that fear. If it is the vibration of hate, it will reap the results of that hate. If it is grief it will reap the results of that grief… and so on.
If someone is treating you poorly you must first look within yourself to see your own way of thinking and feeling. Then recognize the vibration you are sending out that is the counterpart to the one that is being returned to you. The most powerful way to affect change in another person is to simply LOVE them! If they are abusive then love them from a distance. Love changes hearts and minds! Change their behavior by changing how you think, feel, and see them. Find in them the traits you love, then enjoy and focus upon that. Focus upon what you like about them, not what you don’t like. See and feel them as you desire them to be. Before long you will see a difference in their attitudes toward you. Otherwise, if they are simply not reflecting your way of being they will just go away. Either way, we create our relationship with others through our relationship with ourselves.
As the spring blossoms on a fruit tree bloom with the promise of nourishing fruit, you have the opportunity to create new thoughts and feelings. To create joy in your life focus on feeling joyful. To create abundance, focus on feeling abundant. I can go on and on, but you get the idea. You do not have to repeat the old thoughts and feelings which are responsible for the repetition of undesirable experiences. They no longer work for you; do something new, different, and be your true being. A being of LOVE!
