Before you read this, take one or two minutes to think about your life. Is it everything you want it to be? Is there any area, whether financial, career, health, relationships, lifestyle, happiness that isn’t what you would like it to be? What is it?
Now, I’m going to suggest something to you that you may not like. Whatever the situation is that you are not happy with, you are responsible for creating it. I know what you are thinking. Why in the world would I create this? Well, your rational, thinking mind wouldn’t, but your subconscious mind would. Why? Because, subconsciously you placed limits on yourself for one reason or another. Sometime in your life, you chose to believe that what you now have is the only reality possible for you based on your current idea of who you are.
Is that the only reality possible for you? Of course not! It’s not hard to see as you look at the world around you that there are realities that are much worse than the one you now exist in and there are realities much better than the one you exist in. This just happens to be the one you chose to exist in (not consciously, of course).
Is this making any sense? I hope so. Because when you can see this clearly, you will have the key to changing your reality to something better. When you can believe there are hundreds, if not thousands of other possibilities for you to choose from, then you can begin the process of “reality shifting”.
Go back to the area(s) you are not happy with. What other possibilities exist? For example, if you are up to your eyeballs in credit card debt, does the possibility of being debt-free exist? Of course it does, many people are living a debt free existence. What limiting thoughts come up for you when you read that? “Well, that’s great for some people, but that’s not possible for me”, or “Those people had some kind of advantage over me, they have a better job, or they were taught at a young age how to handle their money”. Well, those things may be true, but I guarantee that “those people” all have one thing in common-they believed somewhere in their consciousness that their reality included the possibility of being debt free and by choosing that possibility, they acted on it. Circumstances and experiences were drawn to them to make sure that their perceived reality of being debt free came true for them.
And it can work the same way for you too. No matter what your current reality is, it is not too late to shift into a better one. All you have to do is BELIEVE that a better one is possible for you! How do you shift your consciousness to believing in a new reality? By taking your focus off your current reality and putting it onto your new desired reality.
It would help to choose a new reality that is a shift to something that would require you to stretch your horizons a bit as far as believability, but not so much that you just can’t see it. For example, in the situation above, this person could choose the reality of always having more than enough money to pay all their bills. If a true desire exists to change their reality, and they started focusing on what that new reality looked like and felt like most of the time, and knew without a doubt it was a possibility for them (and it is, because the possibility exists for anyone who chooses it), they will then be able to create a shift to this new reality.
This is not just Aladdin’s lamp, woo-woo psycho babble-this is real! It is all backed by Quantum Physics which is the Science of Energy and how we influence energy with intentional thought. You can choose not to believe and continue to focus on what isn’t working for you and as a result, continue to receive more of that.
Or you can open your mind to a new idea, a new possibility and a new way of being by focusing on the reality you would like to create for your life. Honestly, what do you have to lose? Do you not think you deserve the greatest of possibilities?
