I’d like to share with you some ways you can make this work for you.
When we have frustration, painful memories, or threatening situations, we can learn to put them into perspective. The easiest thing is to look at what IS working around us; like the sun is shining or it’s a soft foggy day, there is a breeze, our health is good. We start to see the vibrant energy of life that flows through all.
Our next step is to bring our focus to the whole of our life and not just one isolated circumstance that seems troublesome. We review what is working and renew our commitment to living the good life of fun and laughter - even if we aren’t there yet we know that we have before and we can and will again. We decide to stop complaining, obsessing, justifying ourselves, or replaying the painful memories because we realize this is getting us nowhere.
As hard as it can be, we renew by remembering the beauty of nature, its vibrancy and abundance and that we are a part of it all. Everything is provided for us by nature to have a blessed day, oxygen to breathe, solid earth to walk on, people to interact with and something to do that benefits our being here in this space and time.
By changing our perception, we recognize what this seemingly troublesome experience is really all about. It is here for us to teach ourselves to push to the next level of love, peace, beauty, energy, abundance, and loving light energy. It’s just waiting for us to ask for greater wisdom and understanding.
And what are the results? When we do this, the results can be powerful. The situation that seemed impossible now takes on a healthier proportion. It downsizes to a small tempest in a teapot. Life is back in balance, and all is well. After all, the trouble is just one portion of a greater good ready to change into a blessing.
In doing this exercise you just created the quality of your life experience which can only get better and better. How easy - and how wonderful - can it be?
Abundant blessings from Rev. Dr. JoAnn Lanning
