This is Part 3 of a 3-part Series.
As we all know, there’s the decision that we make and actually keep and then there are the empty statements and promises that have no meaning except to keep us stuck in the ego.
When we keep our word, and honor our decisions we are tapping into Power.
I decided to really dedicate myself to being loving and that changed my life. The decision was not just a wish or a hope, it was a commitment.
I had lots of lapses and transgressions, but I didn’t give up on my goal because I had made a decision that I was going to live a life of Love.
As I said in Part 2 of this series, A Course in Miracles tells us that our success – in whatever area – is all about forgiving the meaning we’ve made of things in the past.
Everything that’s painful in our present represents some unloving decision we’ve made in the past. Our challenges re-present the false beliefs we’ve chosen in the past.
The decision point has come back again so we can choose again, and this time we can choose to heal our mind about it and know the truth that is our Freedom.
Again, it’s about the decision. Our decisions are a point of power for us.
Let me tell you about a conversation I had with one of my dear friends recently. We were talking about next year – which is only a couple of weeks away!
I asked him, “what’s the one thing you can do now to improve the quality of your entire year in 2018?”
My friend knew the answer right away.
It was about tackling an issue he’d been avoiding. If he could do that, it would help him in his business (and his personal finances) in about 10 different ways.
His particular issue is something that we’ve talked about no less than 25 times in the last three years. It’s something that has really bothered him, and until I asked him that question – he didn’t realize how much this issue was disturbing his Peace.
When he saw that, and saw what a difference it would make to his ENTIRE YEAR, that was an mind-opener.
And because he’s such a good friend and I’m a professional spiritual counselor, we talked a bit about what the core issue really is, and then I said, “why don’t you just get that handled right away. So, we don’t ever talk about it again, and you can free up all that energy to live how you’d really like to live.”
He immediately took action and by the end of the day had hired someone to help him and had a plan to resolve the issue. Just like that.
We didn’t spend a lot of time trying to understand the issue, where it came from, and the root cause. He simply decided that it was a non-issue from now on. He was ready to have the healing. He was willing to take inspired action.
Whenever we’d talked about it in the last few years, my friend had said the issue was about time – he didn’t have enough time to focus on it and resolve it. Sometimes it was about money, and not wanting to pay to get it resolved by an expert. So, he was procrastinating.
Isn’t that what we do?
We drag our feet about taking the steps to do the things that will actually improve the quality of our lives and we have all these excuses.
It’s all B.S. (belief system).
All the delays and dysfunction of excuses are all related to the same thing. And it’s not rocket science, but it IS deeply rooted.
It’s an issue almost all of us are working with, but many of us aren’t working on it directly. And that’s why I offer the classes I do, so we can all become as willing as my friend and have our breakthroughs and stop delaying our happiness.
This is why I have so much to share.
Because I’ve learned methods that work in supporting people to be willing and to have their breakthroughs, change their minds, have their healing, and put the painful patterns of the past behind them so they’re not continuing to repeat year after year. With a little bit of support my friend decided not to repeat the pattern that he’d been stuck in for years.
It’s so beautiful when I see someone make that decision to do something different rather than continue managing and coping like they’ve been doing for years.
My friend’s decision will change not only his life but also his family’s lives, in many ways. Because he’s taking better care of himself, his family will see and feel that and they’ll learn from it too. He will be more lighthearted all year next year because he’s made this choice out of Love for himself.
Because people keep repeating the past instead of learning from their experiences, they begin to feel like they’re wasting their lives. And that’s a painful place to be in.
I used to feel like I didn’t have enough time, energy or money to live the life I desired. I felt really stuck in that mindset. AND I felt like it was happening to me.
Like my friend, I reached a point where I saw what I was doing and I was willing to make a decision to re-prioritize my happiness and put my happiness at the top of the list.
So let me ask you, “what’s the one thing you can do now to improve the quality of your entire year next year?”
If you know what it is, do you have a plan to do it?
If you don’t know what it is, would you like to have a plan to figure it out and then actually do it, releasing all resistance and reluctance and having your breakthrough?
So many people think that they’re not living the life they desire because they don’t have enough time, energy or money. And that thought is really limiting and, quite frankly, for most of us, it’s overwhelming. And that’s the point.
The thought of lacking in all three areas: time, energy and money, is so debilitating that most people just don’t know what to do so they just carry on managing and coping. We feel certain we’ll fail so we don’t even try. It all just seems TOO BIG for us to handle.
But it’s not true. Spirit doesn’t know anything about failure.
It’s about tapping into the power of Spirit and that’s something I know a lot about.
I’d love to help you prove to yourself that you can tap into the Power of Love to live a life that’s truly fulfilling.
I like to share step-by-step methods that have been proven to work. I’ve seen them work even with people who are so reluctant that they’re convinced they’ll fail. Spirit is so powerful!
I know what it takes to have a breakthrough, and I know how to bring on a breakthrough and that’s what I’d like to share with you in my class this week Unblock the Flow of Your Time, Energy & Money.
My class is my gift to you – please come and bring your questions.
Right now, when there’s so much to do AND a lot of emotional triggers happening, this is the time when we can easily forget all about ourselves. It’s a time when we can get so distracted that we don’t realize until February that we don’t have a plan for the new year, and we’re just repeating the past again.
In my class Unblock the Flow of Your Time, Energy & Money I’m going to share with you some real tools and tips you can apply now to set you up for a great year next year.
And I’m also going to share about my year-long Masterful Living Course, so that you can follow through and make 2018 a breakthrough year for you!
