How often are we encountering changes? How well do we cope with changes? CHANGE is everywhere. With every step we take, there is a challenge. Time changes, people change, economies change. Great world statistics keeps track of the macro changes. And, who is responsible for tracking the graphic lines at the micro universe of our personal lives?
Changes in our day to day life scenarios like: a job loss, a divorce, a loss of a family member or a close friend, could put us in a reflective frame of mind. Asking questions, my friends, can bring us a great benefit from our deepest essence. We all ask these Qs now and then: Where I am going? With whom do I want to go there? What brings me fulfilment? How I am going to arrive there?
“Quality questions create a quality life. Successful people ask better questions, and as a result, they get better answers. “ Anthony Robbins
Just like the body, our mind needs daily quality nourishment. What we read, what we hear, with whom we spend time, influences our emotional state and, implicitly the way in which we will respond to all the events. How do we embrace everything that comes to us every day? Ideally: with love and enthusiasm. How do we keep ourselves on the frequencies of harmony, regardless of the status of those around us? Ideally: with confidence and compassion. And, where do we find the button that pumps up these emotional states when they drop out among the low frequencies? Ideally: In the pockets. Through the purse. In the wallet. In the mirror. In a song. In a poem. In a dance. In hearing a child’s laughter. There are millions of ways through which we can reset the perception of any situation. With AWARENESS. With RESPONSIBILITY. But, do we really want our ideal self to run our day to day lives? How often do we feel compassion to ourselves? How often are we feeling overwhelmed and become victimized? We probably struggle and we feel that others are responsible for our reality. They keep overwhelming us, or limiting us, or simply expecting too much from us. All we do, in fact, is project on others all of our fears and unconquered limitations. Well, these are some questions I have been wondering lately.
Day after day, year after year, we do not remain unchanged. Every two years, our body is rebuilt at the cellular level. The emotions we live in are triggers for specific chemical reactions in our body. We can keep ourselves young, living in beautiful bloom, or we can pass away too early from too much fear; unresolved resentments, depression, or stress. Now that we know all this, will we allow ourselves to become more victimized? Maybe not anymore. Who can prevent us from looking after “eternal youth and life without death”? Just us.
After years of study, I understood that the things that are most important to us are born from the spiritual realm and not from the material world. How often do we follow our insights? Too often we do what we know is supposed to be done, even if it does not bring us satisfaction. Why? Where do we find the resources to stay in our true nature and cope with all the changes around us? How do we find out if our creative role has enough strength to build up a new reality? Who can give us permission for such a masterpiece? No one from outside, of course! Beyond the paradigms and programed beliefs, we grew up asking for permission to dream. We got used to bending from caring weights on our shoulders. Emotional weights. Even breathing became superficial. We are kneeling under the care of tomorrow. We’ve shortened our horizons. Some live short lives.
Have you ever wonder: What if it can be otherwise?
Let’s give up the weights. How? We give them another name: we call them experiences. We give them a different meaning. We sort them out – with clarity and forgiveness. We see what lessons we take with us and give up the events that do not bring us joy. We straighten up. Now, as if breathing is deeper. The horizon increases. We are transforming reality, just deciding to open ourselves to something else. For what? To include other meanings of our existence.
“The only source of knowledge is experience.” Albert Einstein
I do not remember having anyone teach me, but since I’ve been a little girl I knew intuitively that any object lost through the house can be found easily and effortlessly. How? Like in a hide-and-seek game, and been somewhat detached from the result, when I least expected, they appeared as if by miracle in my immediate presence: a little button from a doll dress, an earring, or a colorful hairpin. Later on, when losing my books surprisingly they were showing up when I least expected it, behind an armchair or among the fluffy cushions of the sofa. Currently, I find the tiniest lego pieces lost by my children in the most unexpected places, and I’m so glad to lead them to embrace this fascinating game. I grew up with the conviction that the intuition would guide me towards favorable solutions in any situation, just by focusing on the desired outcome. Well, when I discovered the scientific explanation of this phenomenon: Reticular Activator System (SRA) I have lived a sublime moment of the acknowledgement of an absolute truth. It was then I understood that it is up to us to create our own reality through our voluntary attention.
We come equipped with mechanisms that we may not be aware of. They exist. They are waiting for us until we discover their true potential, and we are ready to conscientiously use them. START research, experiment, and seek to understand the reality you live in. Look up. Connect at a deeper level with your own being. Press those emotional buttons that make you feel good. Darkness is void. Just look for the light in every situation. By resisting change, we resist life. Why not choose to live a greater life?
