Do you love the life you have?

Too often I hear people say that they hate the life they have and wish for something else.  Living a life built on wishes or desires for what others appear to possess only leads to greater resentment and despair.  We all have hopes and dreams, but it might better serve each one of us if we could learn to build on our hopes and dreams rather than push them away by empowering ourselves toward our greatness.  Each one of us has the power to create more in our lives but it doesn’t happen overnight.  It is a process and it takes time and discipline.  If you want to manifest for your life, you need to get inspired and empower yourself by setting, so to speak, a fire under yourself and pull yourself out of that pit of self-pity!

I love the life that I have, even though I am constantly seeking to improve my life and reach higher for bigger goals and challenges to master.  I am content with who I am and what I have achieved so far. I have grown to understand that my life is full of experiences and choices and it is my responsibility to make it happen if I want to manifest for my life all that I desire.   When I choose wisely, my experiences are amazing, but I must admit I have often chosen poorly or hastily and as a result been faced with experiences that have not been pleasant.  Of course, I have had my share of sadness, worry or fear but I believe those feelings are all part of the learning curve.  I have always worked on placing my focus on the task at hand because that process helps me stay centered and productive.  Positive thinking and positive actions produce positive results.  Yes, it may take time, but I want you to know if you stay selective in where you place your energy, will manifest for your life all that you seek.

We all have low energy days, but those days do not have to linger, nor do they need to dictate our behavior or outcome. If you find that you are feeling stressed or weak today, go for a walk, exercise or do something different that will squash your poor mood and send a boast of energy to your mind and heart.  Find something to laugh about or sing about and watch your energy shift and your mood improve. 

Sometimes it is fear of the unknown that prevents us from living our lives to the fullest.  That is the time to call in your Power Angels and ask for their support, encouragement and help.  Many years ago, when I was traveling in Egypt I became very much afraid.  I had just joined a group of people who were preparing to go on a spiritual journey through the ruins of Egypt and Greece.  At that time, as I am sure it is now, the police were carrying machine guns.  They were stern and unapproachable and very intimidating.  I subconsciously became afraid of my surroundings, which consisted of everything foreign and strange to me.  In my state of utter apprehension and anxiety, I fell one night coming out of the bathtub and bruised myself severely.  When I finally came back into consciousness, the message I received loud and clear was: “Fear Destroys!”   I have never forgotten that experience nor have I lost sight of those words or their message. 

At that moment I realized that I needed to love the life that I had at that time.  I choose to partake in this adventure, so I changed my thoughts, called in my Power Angels and shifted gears.  I learned to adapt and replace my fear with acceptance, openness and joy.  The situation that I placed myself in was not going to change.  I was the one who needed to change, become calm, surefooted and comfortable with my surroundings.  My Power Angels helped to pull me through.

My expectations of this journey improved as my sense of adventure and willingness to explore new territory changed.  This trip opened me to see a different part of the world with new and eager eyes.  Once I was able to hone in on my emotions and balance my energy, I started to enjoy the culture, traditions and history that I was privileged to encounter.  I began to empower myself for my good. The remainder of my trip was filled with excitement and enriching tales as I learned to love the life that was unfolding in front of me.  Life can be incredibly enriching and exciting when we learn to appreciate the unknown and accept the unexpected.  When that happens, you are actually manifesting for your life in a beautiful way!
