You wish for better, but do you welcome it?

Every now and then we all find ourselves at a particular point in our lives when we wish that things would get just a little bit better.  And boy is it easy to become so consumed with what is going on around you, only to forget about everything that is already “better.” 

During the course of my own life journey I’ve been known to complain here and there about how much I need a break from what life dishes out at me. Yes, guilty as charged. But it’s never really long before I am reminded of the role that I must play, in order for things to lighten up. 

First of all, there’s this little concept called “attitude of gratitude.” The way it works is that when you approach life and situations with the energy and intentions of being grateful, instead of being full of complaints, then Universe will only return to you more things to be grateful for. It really does work this way… TRIED & TRUE!  

But it must be accompanied by an additional action on your behalf. That is, letting go of whatever it is that you have held on to. This can be a number of things such as past relationships, old and new fears, bad habits, criticism of yourself and others, and past hurts and offenses among other things. These are the things that keep you in bondage and can block any and every blessing that the GOD truly intends for you. Without letting go of this excessive baggage, quite frankly you wouldn’t know better if it smacked you in the face.

Think about it, how often is it that you visit places where you know you are not welcomed, especially if  its overcrowded? My guess is that most people naturally avoid such awkward situations. Animals instinctively do this too, and life responds the same exact way. Only the  things that you welcome into your life become a frequent part of your life experience, because it’s what you allow at the time.

Learn to release those things that serve you no good because it’ll only be taking up the space within. If you don’t welcome better with open arms by releasing all things old, then how will the “good” ever come? You must trust that the very things that you are wanting, want you just as bad. But you have to make those things feel welcomed.

Be specific, not careful with what you ask for

‘Be careful what you ask for…’

We’ve heard this saying time and time again. It has practically been run into the ground so much that many of us have become desensitized to the power asking. Many of our parents and grandparents have, at some point, forewarned us of the true power that we as humans have when we put so much focus into a thought that it becomes our reality. But how often is it that you truly pay attention to the creations of your personal world?

If you are a member of  Western society, my guess is that  much of your attention is often clouded by the many happenings of your temporary reality.  So much, that you often forget how many times along your life journey that you weren’t so passive about life. Instead, in many instances  you were decisive about what moves you were going to make, the things that you wanted to experience, the people who you wanted to experience them with, and how you wanted to feel. You were specific with the Universe about your requests, and in a matter of time (seconds, minutes, hours, days, months, or years) your very wishes became your reality. However, by the time you received what you were asking for, you were already on to the next request. And so you forget.

This blog post was written to remind you that you are more powerful than you can imagine, and that your focus means EVERYTHING in terms of your requests of  Universe.

You cannot ask and expect to receive if you are not specific with what it is you are wanting. If uncertainty is the dominant position that you hold, then the Universe will return  to you the dominant energy of your focus. The Universe does not discriminate and consistently gives you energy driven  experiences that are based on the exact energy that you give to it.

So my advice is to be mindful of where your focus is. Instead of always being careful what you ask for, try being specific with your requests. Once you decide, the Universe will bend at your very request. But you have to make up your mind…
