Life

Life is like finger paints, it’s very messy sometimes. You have your ups and downs like the tides of the ocean rolling in and out. If one minute (sometimes it can be 6 years) down just realize that the tide will shift. The Universe is always pulling for you to succeed. That’s just the way it is!

When you’ve had the worst thrown at you just realize that you will see some incredibly wonderful things coming your way. Maybe it will be people, opportunities? The Universe always keeps things in balance. Just like a pendulum on a clock. The thing about life is that we get to experience a broad array of numerous emotions. Grief, sadness, anger, joy, happiness, excitement. If we didn’t every experience these things we’d be like robots, just going through the motions.

When you are going through those messy emotions, embrace them, own them and feel your way through them until you can’t feel them any more. Why? Because when you experience and feel through them and own them. You take away the power for them to turn into disease in your body. You take away the power of another person to hurt you. You also break the cycle of karma. You don’t have to come back and repeat any of the shit. Now isn’t that alone worth it! So the next time that crap comes knocking on your door. Embrace it like the best chocolate your every going to eat.

Feel into your messy emotions, like your painting a Picasso and smear all the colors till you can’t feel any more. That doesn’t mean medicate your feelings, because then you’re not participating in your own life your just avoiding it. You get zero points for avoiding life. You get 100 points for taking action to set boundaries between yourself and abusive people, situations.

When you’re at your dark night of the soul or just feeling like your life just turned into crap. Know that your about to see great things changing in your life. You just have to participate! If you have taken action, then know that something is on its way to you. Start to focus on what areas of your life are working and what do you have control of in your life that you can change.

Sometimes work situations feel like they’re on hold and you can’t move. Then look at other things that you want to change in your life. Maybe that relationship that wasn’t working needs to go? You might find that when you change that relationship that everything else starts to fall into place. Sometimes the relationship we need to change is with ourselves. How we talk to ourselves and treat ourselves?

Stop Chasing Someone Else’s Dream

I had a client who wanted to be wealthy. I asked him what would that look like? Right away he assumed that it had to be the big house or fast cars and lots of money. When he started to think about it, he started to realized that it might look different for each person. He’d never really given it much thought. It was like an abstract thought that you just toss around carelessly.

When we started to nail it down, it was a certain amount of money that would actually make him feel wealthy or successful.  I say this because wealth looks different for each person. I have done parties for people in my mind would be considered wealthy, but next to a billionaire would not. It’s all relative to your personal experience. Actually a couple of these people in this group, tried the Corporate route and found out that it made them miserable. One of those people found that he actually like to teach and coach children. That was what made his soul sing and brought him happiness.

The beautiful part about this group was that even though their friends found happiness in different ways. These friends stayed true to each other. If there was a bridal shower. They might use the friend’s house to have the party, but the friends that could financially afford to pay for the catering did so. No one was using each other. These friends stayed friends because of their friendships not over money.

I think it’s so easy to assume things about people without knowing the facts. I see this with people who are narrow-minded. I say narrow-minded, because not all people who are poor think this way. There is a huge differences in the churches these people go to as well. The churches, temples, (other religious types) that people who have wealth go to support the idea that the highest honor you can show your creator is to be successful and wealthy and that poverty is a sin.

People that go to churches in areas that have high poverty will be very shocked by the statement above. That’s because their churches like to harp on the evils of money and try their very best to keep the people in their community in poverty. This is why the wealthy stay wealthy in their thoughts and deeds. Totally different mind-set. When I was taking my prosperity course, I found this very obvious in the books I was required to read. I was very shocked when it said in black and white that poverty was a sin and that if you were showing proper respect to your creator you should try to be the very best you could be by being happy and successful and wealthy.

Here is where Happy, Successful and Wealthy are open to interpretation. This is not to compare you to someone else. This is to compare you only to yourself. When you chase someone else’s dream, you will never win or be happy. When you chase your own dream, you will find that somethings that you thought would make you happy might not. You then change course til you find out what does make you happy. This is what is known as Success! The wealth thing is open to interpretation, one person might be happy living on 50K a year. Another might need 150K a year and still another 3 Million?

When you actually get a life of your own, you stop caring about other people and how they live. You get clearer about what makes you happy, your goals and dreams and what does success look like to you. You start to make a plan on how to obtain those goals. You start to think about getting a mentor that has succeeded in what you’re trying to accomplish so you don’t have to reinvent the wheel.

You get a support group that understands your dreams and doesn’t try to tear you or your dreams down. Mastermind groups are great for this. This is how one begins to make one’s dream a reality! You are not put on this planet to live out someone elses dream either. If you choose to be a martyr then that’s your choice. Life is for living!
