Making Peace With What Is Lightens the Load

Often times, when we are faced with obstacles, the natural reaction is to stress about it; we worry ourselves sick, or we crumble under pressure and retract from life momentarily since its easier to escape or numb yourself from the pain.

My process, like anyone else who is striving to be their best self, has been a rollercoaster indeed. But even in the midst of my own concerns, I am learning to make peace with whatever I am facing, because it’s the only way that I can truly welcome a better outcome.

When you can learn to accept what is as nothing more than a temporary occurence (as is every fleeting moment of life on Earth), you enable yourself to then begin to tell a different story. You make room for new thoughts and ways of being because you no longer allow the old thoughts of “lack” to consume you. As you begin to shift your awareness, the Universe will respond accordingly.

One of the most accurate quotes I once heard states:

“What you resist, persists.”

This quote could not be more head on. When you give something your attention long enough to let it worry or stress you out, then you are subconsciously welcoming more of it (and things like it) into your experience because of your resistance to what is. But when you can come to peace with it; when you can accept it as a temporary discomfort, and then begin to speak and think thoughts of happiness, abundance, prosperity, and love, the Universe will grant you more of those things to be grateful for.

It has never been rocket science for one to live the life that one dreams of. It has always been in the power of thought and the focus of energy (emotions such as desire, belief, faith, and the opposite of each). Every religion that ever existed points us in this very direction of guarding one’s mind and monitoring one’s energy flow. IT is the most significant battle that we face as humans (the battle of the mind/spirit), but IT is one worth fighting.

May peace, love, and prosperity consume you…

Love,

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.
