You Create | Your World

That which we focus on expands. What will you choose to create with your thoughts today? Your dreams and aspirations, or your worries and fears?

There is so much power in our thoughts, and therefore in our own hands. This goes way beyond our personal lives. It extends to the world.

We are inundated daily with negative news, even under “normal circumstances”. Over the past few months it has ramped up to extreme levels.  If we are not careful, it strongly affects our thinking and beliefs about what is possible. We disempower ourselves every time we buy into “this is too big for me, it is out of my hands”, or, “there are only the same old A or B solutions to choose from, oh well, I’ll just pick what seems best”, or, “authorities external to me have all the answers and power”.

Be observant of your thoughts, the words that are running around like little monkeys in your mind. Take control of your them. What messages are playing in your head? Are they a replay of the media hype you just watched on the news? Resist letting your mind become a slave to someone else’s idea of what reality “should be”. Our minds are being programmed constantly by external forces that want to own us. They know our minds are powerful tools of creation. They don’t want us having independent thoughts, or we will become too free.

Humanity is awakening. Whether you realize it or not, you hold a wealth of wisdom within you. Start to trust in the power of that and create with it. Become a player in building a positive new reality for humanity. Every positive thought, vision, and action that comes from you can help to outweigh the negative force in this world.

That is no small thing. It is HUGE and important. You create your world.

Inspirational Quotes:

“However small we are, we should always fight for what we believe to be right. And I don’t mean fight with the power of our fists or the power of our sword… I mean the power of our brains and our thoughts and our dreams.
And as small and quiet and unimportant as our fighting may look, perhaps we might all work together… and break out of the prisons of our own making. Perhaps we might be able to keep this fierce and beautiful world of ours as free for all of us as it seemed to be on that blue afternoon of my childhood.” ~ Cressida Cowell

“Everything you possess of skill, and wealth, and handicraft,wasn’t it first merely a thought and a quest?” ~ Rumi

“Are we our bodies? Is a small person less than a big person, then? If we were our bodies, then when we lost an arm, or a leg, would we be less, would we begin to fade from existence? No. We are the same person.
We are not our bodies; we are our thoughts. As they form, they define who we are, and create the reality of our existence.” ~ Terry Goodkind

“We seldom realize, for example that our most private thoughts and emotions are not actually our own. For we think in terms of languages and images which we did not invent, but which were given to us by our society.” ~ Alan Watts

What Is | Not

Fear has a way of dissolving our resolve, when it is strong and threatening enough. Discernment, critical thinking and our wise intuition go quickly out the window. The black ooze of fear grips us in a stranglehold. To say fear is uncomfortable is an understatement. It undermines that which we long for and value – comfort and safety.

But as Franklin D. Roosevelt famously said in his first inaugural address, “The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.”

When we are gripped by fear, we become very vulnerable to the manipulations of those who like to control others. We just want relief, in the fastest way possible. The controllers are only too happy to spoon-feed it to us, in order to gain their advantage.

When we are fearful is exactly the time when we should not succumb to the “easy and fast solution”. It’s the time to stand back, take a deep breath, and look for the way that makes sense logically, does not undermine our own moral compass, and perhaps most importantly, what ultimately feels right at a gut instinct level.

Never give over your own power out of fear of the unknown. Look for the truth of “what is” in yourself, rather than succumbing to the manipulations of others that are rooted in your fear of “what is not”.

Believe it or not, that is ultimately what will keep you safe, and you can also take comfort in the fact that you were true to yourself. Comfort derived otherwise is false, and you build your house on shifting sand.

Inspirational Quotes:

“Becoming fearless isn’t the point. That’s impossible. It’s learning how to control your fear, and how to be free from it.” 
~ Veronica Roth, Divergent

“I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.” ~ Nelson Mandela

“I believe that anyone can conquer fear by doing the things he fears to do.”  ~ Eleanor Roosevelt

“Through every generation of the human race there has been a constant war, a war with fear. Those who have the courage to conquer it are made free and those who are conquered by it are made to suffer until they have the courage to defeat it, or death takes them.” ~ Alexander the Great
