Sometimes….We need to come out of our comfort zone….

Bird
This is all about experiencing life, and everything it has to offer.
There’s two things we can count on with 100% accuracy after being born into this Physical world, and they are….
That we will make our transition back to the Non-Physical energy from which we came, and while we’re in this physical body circumstances will be different and changing in every moment that we are alive.

Even though we do create our own life experiences through our thoughts and emotions, our vibration, that the Law of Attraction responds in-kind too, it’s not possible to stay static or in one moment of time, as this goes against the very principle of life which is an ever-changing, constantly forward moving process. Even when things appear as if they are not changing, this is an illusion, they are changing, even if it is only slightly.

Some may disagree explaining that they’ve been doing the same thing for many years without changing, and I say, memories and our perception of those memories are open to different interpretations depending on where we are vibrationally and what we believe when we think about the past.

Everything for sure is constantly changing, but it is possible to create a life where not many new experiences come into our world. This is achieved by making a conscious effort to avoid anything that makes us feel even slightly uncomfortable, and although it’s definitely a very good idea to do things that feel good, it’s also true that sometimes we may need to move ever so slightly out of that comfort zone and make an effort to move our thought into a better feeling vibrational place to experience more things that are good, that we’re wanting in our lives.

There may be many factors we need to consider when deciding to do something that we haven’t done before such as;

~ How strong is my negative emotion I’m feeling towards taking this action and do I think I’ll be able to bring my discomfort into a better feeling vibrational place before I take this action?

~Is this action something I really am wanting to do or wish I could do if I didn’t have a fear of the unknown?

~Do I think this experience is more likely to be positive or negative?

~Do I think I’m resilient enough to move myself into a good feeling vibrational place if circumstances don’t unfold exactly as I’m wanting?

~If I do have a positive experience….Will this help me to let go of resistance towards doing different things that may open a new door that allows many wonderful experiences to flow into my life???

No other can answer these questions for us, only we know exactly how we’re feeling and what we’re wanting in relation to anything we’re considering.
If we do decide to take action on something that sits slightly outside of our comfort zone, it’s important to focus on all the possible positive outcomes we think may be likely (Remember, Law of Attraction!!) And to make a conscious effort to feel as good as we possibly can towards whatever we’re going to do. Deciding to take action and resigning ourselves to feeling bad about whatever we’re doing almost guarantees a less than wanted outcome, and for me, is unacceptable.

I would never advise anyone to do something they were strongly fearful of or feeling strong negative emotion about, but sometimes we do get stuck in our routines and our comfortable place, not moving from it for fear of what might happen or that we won’t have control anymore.

I know it often feels safe when we continue to do the same familiar things, but sometimes we do need to extend ourselves just a little bit, not to bring unwanted negative experiences into our lives, but to open doorways and avenues for wonderful things to come into our lives.

It’s all waiting for us, all the good stuff we’ve been wanting, and we may need to let go of some old beliefs or routines that may have served us well in the past….

But that was then…..And this is now…..

And so it is…..

Could “Whatever”…be the best word in the world???

This is a good follow-on from “The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree,” since it is a word our children often love to use, much to the disgust of many parents I’m sure!!
So I totally get it, it can be extremely frustrating when you’re trying to communicate with someone and all they offer you as a response is “whatever” with a lot of attitude. (Yep, I’ve had that comment given to me more times than I care to remember, but I probably need to add I love to use it myself too….Hehehe!!)
But what does someone usually mean when they say this, beyond trying to annoy the living daylights out of us!!

It’s a way of saying, “I don’t agree with what you are saying right now, and I don’t like it, and I know if I try to communicate anything to you….it’s just going to get ugly cause I’m pretty sure you’re not in a place to hear anything I’ve got to say about it, so I’ll sort of keep the peace, or more to the point, keep quite otherwise I may receive some consequences I’m not wanting, but I want you to know how I feel anyway!!”

Oh, that’s pretty good don’t you think….That’s a lot to convey in just one word, but that’s totally what it does.

So I think it can be good in the sense our children are not just accepting everything others are telling them just because we’ve been in a physical body longer than they have, and although this can make you want to pull your hair out and scream, it is a very positive aspect of who they really are coming through.

Many children coming forward from Non-Physical in these times are very strong-willed and not easily lead away from what they are wanting by others, or what they are believing is good for them.
Now I understand this makes for some very challenging times, especially if we are wanting them to follow all the rules we may have followed when we were growing up, and I would go as far to say, if this is what we are trying to impose on our children, it’s very likely this will cause extreme behaviours until we learn to communicate with them in a way that includes them in the decisions we make, rather than dictating everything to them without seeking their opinions and ideas.

I like to think of it as more of a collaboration rather than a dictatorship style of communicating, and to tell you the truth, from what I see, most of us are doing a pretty good job considering the vast difference from the way many of us were brought up.

So maybe this word isn’t as bad as what some of us may have thought?
For when our children grow-up and leave the nest, if they have learnt to just follow everything someone else says, they can be lost when they’re on their own.
Of course they usually find their way, but why would we make things harder for them than they need to be? Encouraging good communication, problem solving, respect for others, and the ability to change as the circumstances may require are totally awesome skills to teach and be an example of!

It’s very interesting to ponder…. “Who’s teaching who?”
I can only speak from my own personal experiences, when I tell you, through having to learn new and improved ways of interacting with my children in a positive manner, I have become a better person….And I can only hope they learn as much good stuff about themselves from me, as I have learnt from them….

And so it is….
