A Brief Guide to How YOUR Life Can Change for the Better.
One of the areas I particularly wish to work on in the course of developing material for my website and when working with clients, is explaining the actual nitty-gritty of how the processes of positive change can and do actually manifest in our lives.
Lets say you are working in a dull low paid job that you do not like. You have run up debts on your credit cards and you seem trapped in a cycle of paying debt with no freedom to pursue other interests etc. Your options seem very limited and you feel trapped on the treadmill of life, going nowhere.
Theoretically you could clarify and focus your thoughts and feelings around what you want sufficiently to be able to "miraculously" find a new job, come into some unexpected money and clear your debts.
That is basically how it works. As you focus more upon your wants and less upon the lack of your wants you find opportunities readily presenting themselves in your life. As you bring more focused awareness to your successes than your failures you will have more success. As you learn to trust your instincts, intuition and hunches you will begin to feel safer in the face of the apparent set backs on the path of your life.
The bad news is that whilst all this could happen overnight it probably will not because such a transformation would actually be a "shock" to your energy field and your current sense of self; to such an extent that you probably would not be able to accept your good fortune. It does not have to be like that but for most people it is. Us humans tend to resist change and so change comes slowly; we find it more comfortable that way, EVEN if the changes are positive.
Another aspect to consider is risk. I have found that we need to take risks in order to grow and learn to trust the processes of life and furthermore that the risks we need to take may not be very logical.
I call it "Saying Yes First". For instance, you want a new and more fulfilling job that is better paid. You may just have to quit the job you are in first. Why? Well by doing just that you are in effect auto-channeling more energy into the process of getting this wonderful job you want. The potential consequences of being out of work and in debt are so horrendous that you barely even think of them. This in turn means that your focus towards wanting this new job is heightened as it becomes a very real necessity. In effect you are saying YES I believe this and I trust that I will be proved correct to believe it. I am prepared to take the risk.
The trouble with this course of action is that it is risky and may well backfire on you if your fear of the potential negative consequences is greater than your desire for success. If this is the case you will get into greater financial trouble and end saying to yourself "I knew I shouldn't have done that" and lapse back into feelings of being a victim of this harsh life.
One of my examples of doing this was when the tax authorities here announced that I owed them hundreds of thousands of pounds in taxes for self-employed sub-contractors that supposedly should have been employees. This would mean total financial ruin for my family and me. Somehow though it just seemed unreal, not possible, but I was certainly very scared at times because you never can tell can you? So after some meditation and quiet reflection I actually leased a new Mercedes as an affirmation that this was not the reality I was going experience. This car was my ready connection to feelings of prosperity. Finally a couple of years later the tax was settled at a relatively mere '6,000.00 and I sold the Mercedes as it just did not seem to "fit" anymore.
This is why only YOU can decide what is right for you and those decisions will be your edge and your continuing challenge. Daring to fully trust yourself to make decisions that you will honour as being correct at the time (simply because you made them) regardless of the potential outcome.
So in the fewest words I can muster today here is the summary of "how" your life can change for the better.
* By dreaming yourself a new lifestyle you connect with the "feeling" of living that life.
* That "feeling" state vibrates harmoniously with the universal energy field and fresh ideas, impulses and opportunities occur in your life.
* Acting upon those ideas, impulses and opportunities allows your new life to materialise
* Continued focus on your part towards the life that you desire increases your ability to manifest it. Your vision becomes more real and less some dream-like flight of fantasy.
* This increased positive energetic focus "also" brings your fears to consciousness for healing. There will be times when you feel quite frightened. That is normal and a good sign!
* Your ability to remain focused upon a task or goal strengthens.
* Life takes on a magical quality as you come to positively expect wondrous things to happen.
* Sometimes you think all of the above is a bunch of "hogwash!"
* You come to realise conclusively that "it isn't" and start telling people about it.
