Where do you place your attention?
When you focus your sights on a specific situation, do you try to place demands on God or the Universal Force, what ever you call it? I have caught myself working diligently to make something happen only to discover that I am causing chaos and often-unnecessary prerequisites.
Your task is to bring the Universal Energy within your grasp by raising yourself and your attention to a level of higher awareness rather than attempting to push the Universe down to your level of understanding.
When you try to force an issue or control a solution, you are telling the Universe that you do not trust it. It would be wise not to focus on the ���How' or ���When' you desire the outcome and instead place your attention on the Feeling that you wish to experience. In other words, work on your visualization techniques see the movie playing in your head of what you desire being manifested or played out.
It is not our job or our right to make demands of God and the Universe. We are simply to create a cooperative venture in which our intention is aligned with Divine Intelligence. Now is the time to re-direct your energy and remove all demands from your desires. I, myself, have learned the hard way so I know as to what I am speaking. When I have been so Ego driven that I thought I had all the right answers, I
fell flat on my face, so to speak and the outcome that I forced upon myself was wrong. So please shift your attention to the inner knowing that you are seeking guidance and oneness with the Universal Flow and that you are relying on its energy to bring about that which you desire for your highest and best good in the highest and best way.
The pure truth of simply knowing that the Universe has your back is sufficient. Now is the time to practice patience and detach from the outcome. Our preconceived ideas must be brought into balance with our willingness to practice patience in other words, let go and let God.
I pray for patience all the time because it is a virtue that often seems to elude me yet I know that when I can simply breath in and relax, I feel better. I then begin to place my attention on a clear yet effective statement: " I've got all the time that I need and I am certain that the outcome I will receive will benefit me greatly."
The secret to my calm and patience is in my knowing that the outcome will be great.
I have also discovered that when I try to force a situation, the only thing I accomplish is frustration and anxiety, two emotions that cause stress and pain. I have found that meditation has helped me reach a calm and healing state of mind. This inner bliss is a function of the power of my willingness to be patient.
My impatience is my failure to trust and believe in the greater intelligence of Creation.
When your resistance subsides and you allow the natural order of the Universe to take over, your life will begin to flow. I hope this message will help you focus on where you place your attention. When you can shift your energy from
needing to push the envelope to letting the Universe direct your path, you will experience the benefits that are awaiting you with ease and joy.
