Things were so much better in the old days….Seriously???

If I had a penny for every time someone said “I remember how things use to be so much better back in my day” I think I’d be pretty rich!!
I’m not suggesting that the perception of the world from people who believe this, is not correct from their point of view, for when you have focused for a large portion of your life on everything you believe is “wrong, bad, or inappropriate” in comparison to often somewhat skewed memories of the past, this is a common place to end up.
What I am saying is, as you put your focused attention on many unwanted things that are or have happened to you, or to others you know or have observed, you dominate your vibration with many unwanted circumstances that are happening now. The Law of Attraction then responds in-kind to your vibrational offering bringing you evidence of that which is strongly pulsing within you.
So what is it that the Law of Attraction is bringing us?
Let’s say I’m strongly negatively focused on……………….and I’ve given these thoughts focused attention that I’m now experiencing strong negative emotions to, in relation to whenever I bring this subject into my thoughts.
The first indication I have created power and momentum behind these thoughts is the manifestation of more thoughts that I will have easier and easier access to because the Law of Attraction is making them more easily available to me. (the attraction of more thoughts of a similar nature is the beginning of the creation process)
Then comes emotion, I can know for sure, as I continue to feel strong emotion that I am on my way to attracting more physical manifestations that will match how I am feeling now.
Circumstances such as…..
Seeing TV programs, hearing things on the radio and observing others doing…
Being involved in conversations with others that feel the same way about the subject.
Being in the presence or observing others that are doing whatever it is I am pushing against.
And eventually if focus (vibration) is not redirected or moved to a better feeling, emotional place, we will attract the full physical manifestation of whatever it is we are strongly focused upon.

Great news if we’re focused on positive things we are wanting to experience, don’t you think?

That was a very long way of saying, when we are looking at the past as being so wonderful compared to what is happening now, we may be more orientated towards all that’s happening now that’s unwanted, with the Law of Attraction bringing us evidence to support what we believe.
So yes, it’s all out there, but there’s two sides to every story, and just as there are many unwanted circumstances “out there”, there is just as many, if not more, truly amazing, wonderful things to focus on.
Theoretically if we believe and know how this Universe and the Law of Attraction works, we would choose to focus only on that which feels good, and when experiencing unwanted circumstances would quickly move ourselves into a better feeling place and turn our focus towards what we’re wanting (rather than getting stuck on what it is we are not wanting)
And if we had been brought up knowing about these powerful strong Universal Laws it wouldn’t be a problem….
But for most of us we didn’t know, but it’s all good because it’s only a matter of time before we start understanding how we’re creating our own life experiences, and in this case….“Knowledge is Power!”
And so it is….

Can we receive respect…. If we don’t give respect???

Friendly Bear
                           It is not possible to receive that which we are not prepared to give ourselves.                                                         Paulette De-Har

No, true respect for another must go both ways. If we expect respect without giving respect, we will be sadly disappointed.

Some may believe the longer you have been here in this physical body, all younger ones should respect you. Well, it’s nice to be nice, that’s for sure, but you must give respect to receive respect, it’s not an automatically given commodity based purely on your length of time you’ve been alive, you get back what you give out.
You cannot condemn any part of society or an individual, and expect to receive anything positive back from them. No matter what generation we are speaking of, it often happens that previous generations focus on all they think the younger generations are doing, that they feel isn’t right compared to how they lived their lives. Its like some take it as a personal criticism of how they lived their lives?
Who among us can say that every single thing we’ve done in our lives was done in the best possible way, and that it’s the only way?
Of course most of us were doing our best, but we must acknowledge as we move forward in our lives, there are always better ways that we can do things, and that’s what our beautiful young ones are trying to do.
When we close ourselves off to the possibility of improvements, we can become very judgemental and set in our ways, as if wanting an improvement in life is bad or wrong?
If no one came forward wanting any improvement in life, what would be the point of life? There would be no point.
It’s a good idea to respect those we interact with no matter their age, gender, race, religion, or lifestyle choice, but if we do find this difficult our best action is to acknowledge we’re all different and let our negative judgements of others go. We all come from different perspectives, and although we may not want to choose what others are choosing, they are free as we are, to choose what they believe is best for them based on what they’re wanting and how they want to live.
Do your best to make peace with what others are doing, whether you like what they are choosing or not, and avoid focusing on what they are doing that you do not wish to bring into your world, for the Law of Attraction will bring you more evidence of that which you are focused upon, every time!
It’s true when things change it often brings wanted and unwanted circumstances to the forefront, this is the process of life and isn’t a problem when we know staying positive will work through any resistant we have and get us where we’re wanting to go.
We cannot stay in the past, things must move forward, we cannot control what everyone else is doing, but there is a choice of focusing on the positive aspects of what’s new or the negative aspects of what’s new.
When we transition into new circumstances, problems do arise, and with problems come solutions, but to see the solution we desire, we must be close to the vibrational vicinity of the solution, which means getting in a place where we believe we will find a solution.
We are all getting there, whether we’re aware of it or not, for in the times that are before us it’s getting harder and harder to be complacent with our thoughts as manifestations are turning up with increased frequency and intensity letting us know where we are, and in a sense asking us, “This is what you’ve been giving thought to, would you like more of it?”
If it’s wanted, yes, yes, yes, keep thinking what you’re thinking! If it’s unwanted, do your best to move to a better feeling place or focus on things in your life that are working well, but don’t stress about it.
You really can’t get it wrong, for every experience both wanted and unwanted has in it the opportunity of moving to better and better places, and as we start to see this in our lives and the lives of those around us, we really put ourselves in a position to experience more of the wonderful life we came here to live!!

And so our journey together continues….

Observations about our Beautiful Children….

Anyone that has children would have no doubt noticed that today’s generation of children are very different from their parents and previous generations. You don’t need to be a rocket scientist to figure that out, and it’s interesting to note, when people often speak of this, they tend to highlight many things they consider negative.
“We didn’t do that in my day, we behaved ourselves and just did what we were told.”
Now that’s lovely if we’re believing everything someone else tells us or our feeling good depends upon making someone else happy and feel good. But the truth is, most of our beautiful children are not prepared to take everything we say as being right or good for them. I understand this makes for navigating the parenting of children far more difficult than it may have previously been, it’s rather easy when someone has largely substituted their own Inner Guidance for someone else’s, for they are more likely to listen and blindly follow instructions…. But is this what we really want for our children??? For me, the answer is simple…. No.

To bring today’s children to a place where they will listen and follow without question, their spirit has usually been broken to some degree, and the long-term consequences of this are not usually what we are wanting for those we deeply love. When a child’s own Inner Guidance is overridden and their spirit is broken by others, even those that have the best of intentions, what happens when you are not there to guide them? They are often lost and seek out another that will direct them in what to do, for they have not had an opportunity to think and make decisions for themselves. I’m not suggesting our little ones need no guidance, but the days of following without question are far behind us. I like to think of it now as more of a collaboration between parent and child, a belief that all have value, ideas, opinions and suggestions that at the very least, deserve to be listened too, considered and negotiated.

Our children have very different and specific needs compared to previous generations. A one size fits all, do what I say approach (and sometimes not what I do) no longer works and did it ever work….I don’t know??? Children are coming forward in these times with a stronger determination, purpose, and confidence that does require a more flexible parenting style, and in truth are guiding us all to be better parents, better teachers, and better leaders.
Yes, they are teaching us to be better human beings…and I cannot think of a greater life purpose to have in this wonderful physical world…

And so it is….
