Act like you are living the life you intended to live … even if you feel confused about your purpose or future.
View the events you consider obstacles as perfect opportunities to test your resolve and find your purpose. Treat everything, from a broken finger nail to illness or a lost job as an opportunity sent to shake up your routine and move you towards your purpose.
See hurdles as friendly interventions by the Universe to shift your direction. They are a sign that Higher Powers are looking out for you, guiding and directing you.
Time to decide …
Albert Einstein once famously said that the most important decision we ever make is whether we believe we live in a friendly universe or a hostile universe.
Basically he meant the more hostile we think the universe is, the more hostile it is likely to prove. For example, if you don’t think people are nice, chances are you are not likely to open up to give them a chance to be nice.
The Universe wants you to know it is friendly and will work with you, as long as you see it that way. If life goes screwy occasionally, it does not mean the universe is hostile. Always remember, you are living in a friendly world, one with endless capacity for love and happiness.
I love you …
Take a moment to look in the mirror. Do it now. Make eye contact and say ‘I love you’. Say it as though you really mean it, like you are saying it to a soul mate.
At first you may find this difficult because of what you’ve experienced over your lifetime. You may not believe it or think it sounds egotistical. Never feel embarrassed to say I love you to yourself, say it proudly. It is an affirmation of self-respect. In loving you, you are loving your Creator. You are one and the same.
When you say ‘I love you’ – and mean it – you automatically connect to the angels and spiritual realm.
Say it again when you wake up in the morning.
Never doubt your potential …
You were born with potential
You were born with goodness and trust
You were born with ideals and dreams
You were born with greatness
You were born with wings
You are not meant for crawling, so don’t
You have wings
Learn to use them and fly.
– by Rumi, 13th century poem
You don’t need to be superior
Let go of the need to be superior. True nobility is not about being better than others, it is about being better than YOU used to be. Stay focused on your growth – what you are doing to make your life better.
If you ever feel the need to put someone down because it makes you feel better about yourself – stop! Freeze those thoughts! What you put out there, you get back! Those sorts of thoughts lead you away from happiness and your purpose.
Wish all you meet well, regardless of their circumstances, it’s their life. Instead, let’s focus on YOU and all your amazingness.
Don’t be offended
That which offends you, only weakens you. If you look long enough, you’ll always find a reason to be offended. And when we feel offended, we feel bad and think bad thoughts. Maybe we even retaliate and say something to offend the other person. Not a pretty cycle!
Accept people have bad days, they occasionally say or do the wrong thing, no-one is perfect. And who knows what sort of pressure they are under.
To know all, is to forgive all.
Instead – next time you are about to feel offended. STOP. Decide NOT to be. It’s that simple. Don’t listen to your mind when it tries to list off the reasons you should be offended. Ignore it. Say no to all that unwanted stress.
