Today, those who live asleep without acknowledging or accepting the eternal nature of our journey tend to be increasingly unhappy. The quicksand of chaos, drama, scarcity, worsening health, and poor relationships becomes a self-perpetuating trap..- Karen Garvey,
The Great Mirror of The Universe
You are having a conversation with the universe, continually telling it what you want. You co-create your reality with this limitless source by communicating, knowingly or unknowingly, through your thoughts, beliefs, feelings, and subsequent actions.
The formula for creating an ideal reality is quite simple to understand, yet may take a long time to master. A New Year is always a good time to refresh your conversation by knowingly communicating what you want. If you are unaware of what you are “saying”, your focus and choices are communicating anyway.
Let me give you a practical example of how to converse. Compare the following three messages:
1. Dear Friends,
Happy New Year, Everyone! 2012 was a horrible year. So many things went wrong for me personally and we can all see the loss and devastation that people around the world experienced. Between my health issues, losing so much savings on bad investments, Sandy, and the terrible school shootings in Connecticut, I can only say that things can only get better in 2013. I hope you have a great 2013!
2. Dear Friends,
Happy New Year, Everyone! The world had some real challenges in 2012 and so did I personally, but I really feel like I grew from my experiences. Even though I couldn’t change them, I was able to take something good from the bad and I’m grateful to have had the opportunities. I hope to keep growing and learning every day in 2013 and hope that the world grows, too. May you experience peace and love in 2013.
3. Dear Friends,
Happy New Year, Everyone! I feel really optimistic about 2013. Every year, overall, things just seem to get better and better. I feel younger and more fit (at this rate, I expect to turn thirty again in 2013), abundance is all around me, and I’m surrounded by loving people. I also have this sense that the world in general is moving to a new and better place, and I intend to contribute to that movement in any way I can :-) May we all experience peace and love in 2013!
Can you intuit how the reflective energy of the universe will shine back at the writer of each statement? What do you suppose Writer 1 is communicating? Writer 2? What do you think the great mirror of the universe will reflect back to each writer?
To completely oversimplify the process of the creation of our reality, let’s suppose that each message reflects the whole core of the writers’ thoughts, feelings, and beliefs. For demonstration purposes, let’s also assume that the writer is co-creating their reality singularly with the universe and no other persons’ lives affect the writers’ realities. Read the following descriptions of the power each messenger has in their communications.
The first writer is focusing solely on the negative. The universe cannot distinguish between a focus that is wanted or unwanted; it simply reflects back the thoughts, feelings, and beliefs. In this case, if this message is indicative of the writer’s typical focus and feelings, it is clear that the upcoming year will bring new negative experiences. In addition, because the writer tends to see life in terms of negativity, even when something positive does occur, the writer is not likely to spend as much focus on it as he spends on the negative. What you focus on will expand.
Writer 2 is evolving. She is becoming more and more awake as she comprehends the interconnectedness between her experiences and her growth. She is trying to be optimistic. Her upcoming year will be a mixed bag of experiences, some tough and some great. The reason for the negative occurrences is because she believes that challenges must happen in order for her to grow. She has not yet discovered that her on-going awakening can be precipitated by positive events, people, and ideas. She also is tenuous in her belief about what’s to come by “hoping for good” rather than believing that good is coming.
The writer is positive, has a humorous, optimistic attitude, and intends for life to keep getting better and better. It is probable that the universe will comply!
This simplified illustration of one’s communication with the universe and the effect it has on his or her reality demonstrates the importance of choosing a positive focus. Of course, as challenges arise, it’s important to emote, manage the events, and to feel your feelings, but regardless of how life unfolds, the bulk of your focus is your CHOICE.
CHOOSE happiness with me in 2013.
