I can use my focus for positive or negative emotions, and whichever I choose is what I will attract back to myself.
This doesn’t imply that I never have negative emotions. I’m here to experience contrast! Not having contrast would be like standing in the same spot all of my life, never moving. There’s no adventure in that!
I do, however, practice an awareness of my emotions, my emissions, and if they are negative, fearful, I begin shifting my focus to something positive, love. This is a process, but with practice it becomes very natural.
Being deliberate and intentional with my focus has shifted what I attract in my life, rather than just letting my emotions run on auto-pilot, leaving me feeling powerless over my life experience.
Shifting my focus means turning off the unpleasant TV program and reading an enlightening book, or putting on music videos and dancing around the living room. It can be coloring, creating, journaling, cooking, cleaning...you get the point.
The ego will say, ”Why are you coloring, the sky is falling?!”
And I know that while I’m coloring, I will allow myself to receive direction on how to handle the situation at hand.
Change is constant and necessary. Everything in nature is cyclical, including us.
Resistance to change, to cycles, is where the struggle is created, rather than in the actual change itself.
Learning to recognize and remove your resistance is where your power lies, rather than trying to stop change from happening.
Using your Super Power, your focus, deliberately and intentionally you can flow with changes, rather than drown in a sea of fear and uncertainty.
Removing resistance is a process to be practiced and repeated when necessary. It’s not a magic fix.
I begin by recognizing when resistance to change is present. It manifests as fear, feelings of hopelessness, physical symptoms like upset stomach, anxiety, stress, worry.
I acknowledge, “Hey, I’m resisting this change that’s occurring that I’m attributing to this specific event.”
That’s it. No judgement of myself. No criticism of myself. Just an awareness and an acknowledgement.
I then deliberately and intentionally put my focus on something that I can control.
My breath is the first thing. Three deep breaths, in through the nose, out through the mouth.
This simple practice gets me grounded and aligned, so now I am in a state to receive direction in this moment of change, rather than feeling powerless.
Inspired thought, Direct Divination, Universal Intelligence, God/Goddess, whatever you want to call it...consider it is always accessible to you, but hard to access in a state of resistance or fear.
What does it sound like? It is either a thought or direction for the next step, a knowing, or it is comfort and calming, feeling supported as you move through the moment that may be uncomfortable, for it’s no secret, change can certainly get uncomfortable.
It is natural for many to hold our breath when we are resisting change. This tells the brain that it is suffocating, and the body goes into panic mode. This can also contribute to anxiety attacks. So I may believe I’m having an anxiety attack because I just got rear-ended and my whole day has changed, but if I take 3 deep breaths I am able to flow with this event without also feeling like I’m suffocating, which exacerbates the whole thing.
Yes, I understand it’s hard to take 3 deep breaths when I’m having an anxiety attack.
However, I understand that if I practice the 3 deep breaths daily, I will be better at implementing it in more intense situations.
When major change is occurring in my life, I’ve learned to lean into and explore, rather than resist and avoid. This is where my power lies.
Again, it may be uncomfortable for a period of time, but this, too, shall pass.
In this Big Beautiful Life that can get messy at times, remember this:
You are safe.
You are supported.
You are so loved.
I love you.
