When they say you should change, can you lift your head high and stay strong???

CityUnderWater
These are lyrics from the song Soar, by Christina Aguilera.

So, the question is….When others believe we should change our behaviour in some way, especially those that we respect and care about, do we stay strong when we feel what we’re doing is right for us???

Well, that depends doesn’t it, on whether it’s more important for us to stay true to what we feel is right for us in any given moment, or whether it’s more important for us to keep someone else happy by doing what they feel we should or shouldn’t be doing.

The question could be….When is someone else other than ourselves, better equipped than we are to know what we’re truly wanting and what the best route to take to get there is??? Well, they are not!!

I can imagine many would strongly disagree, especially if we feel people should be doing what we feel and tell them they should be doing, not what they feel they should be doing!! Now, before anyone gets their knickers all bunched up,(Hehehe, that’s funny don’t you think!!) I know we can get very good advice and inspiration from the others we come into contact with, that’s the Law of Attraction responding to our own positive vibration that has been maintained long enough with emotional intensity until we start attracting and receiving positive manifestations…..And I say that’s totally AWESOME!!

Our emotions are our Inner Guidance letting us know if we’re moving towards something we’re wanting (positive emotions) or something we’re not wanting (negative emotions) so it’s virtually impossible for someone else to have experienced all we’ve experienced in our lives and feel the same as we do in relation to everything that’s important to us and everything we’re wanting, so the truth is, no other is in a better position than ourselves to decide what’s best for us, end of story. (Not really end of story, but you know what I mean don’t you?)

In reality all the answers we’re looking for are around us all the time, no exceptions ever, the question isn’t if they’re there, it’s more whether we’re seeing them or not. The fact is, if we’re not in the same or very similar vibrational place as the answers we’re seeking, we don’t see them even when they’re right under our noses!!
Depending on where we are and how we feel about that, it could be annoying or exciting, probably a bit of both.

No matter where our answers come from, whether from external sources in the form of people and experiences or from internal sources like our own thoughts and feelings, the final decision on which way to go is always ours.
If what we’re receiving feels good, it is good, especially when we make an effort to focus on all the positive aspects of what we’ve decided on doing. If what we’re receiving doesn’t feel that good but we feel that’s what we need to do to get the results we’re wanting, we can make it a better choice by taking the time and making an effort to move into a better feeling vibrational place by again focusing on all the positive aspects of what we’ve decided to do.

The truth is….Action taken from a not good feeling vibrational place is very hard work and doesn’t usually reap very good results, whereas by listening to how we’re feeling and making an effort to move into a positive vibrational place, makes our journey much more enjoyable and reaps much better results, and I think it would be fairly true to say, there’s not many of us here that wouldn’t want that….

And so it is….

No one likes a….”Know it all!!”

SoulFireQuote
Hehehe….This makes me laugh because I do often class myself as a bit of a “know it all,” but in the best possible way of course! What I mean is, I believe strongly that I will receive the answers to anything that is important to me, and I always do. Sometimes they come immediately as I bring a question into my mind and sometimes they are weaved into my experience after a little bit of focus. That’s a good example of the Law of Attraction in action! Ooooh, I like that, “The Law of Attraction in Action” that’s totally cool!!
Now I know (see, there I go again!!) this comment is usually used in a strongly negative way to mean a person “who thinks” they know more than everybody else about everything and usually likes to tell you how “right” they are, and how “wrong” you are!! This often comes from a belief where people feel they know better than others and is usually mixed with the desire to tell everyone “the error of their ways” so to speak.
And I say “Holy Moses!”….That’s the perfect way to do the exact opposite of that which you are wanting, as most people will not listen to anyone that is coming from a place of self-pronounced superiority over others, for this rarely feels good.
Now it’s true to say we all have different levels of knowledge about different things based on our own life experiences, and of course, we will know more than others sometimes, and others will know more than us at other times. That’s not the issue,  the most important factors are;
Is whoever we are considering telling something too, in the place to hear what we have to say? In other words, do we feel there is an asking for this information in some way?
If we feel the answer is no, there’s not much point in trying to convey….For it will fall on deaf ears. And even if there is a certain amount of asking, whether what we have to say will be heard or not, still depends on how much our recipient likes the information they are hearing? If the information conveyed requires some form of change and sits along way from the knowledge we currently hold,(and it usually does) it often takes time to digest and be thought about before it can be truly understood through our own life experiences and perspective.
It’s not bad or wrong to want to help someone when we feel we have information that could possibly improve another’s life experience in some way, and if it’s someone we care deeply for, its even harder not to “spill the beans all over the place.” Hehehe!! (Oops, I might have been guilty of doing that once or twice!!)
But seriously, sometimes we have to just let people be and know that they will find their way, in their own time, and in their own way, when they are ready.
To truly be able to do this, we must believe that others have the power and ability to create what they are wanting in their life, even when they aren’t currently experiencing it, and before we can believe this about others, we must first believe in it for ourselves, for it’s virtually impossible to help another to believe in themselves….When we do not believe in ourselves.

In regards to knowing it all, it’s not possible to know everything there is to know all at one time, (I know I’m stating the obvious here) but one thing is for certain, anything we want to know that we feel is important for our experience, we have access too, every single time, no exceptions ever, but we do need to get into the vibrational place of where the answers are.
And we do this by holding the subject or question in our mind with a positive focus, believing that we will receive an answer or solution to the question we have pondered, even if we do not know when, where or in what form the answer will come. If this belief is held over time with focused attention creating power and momentum, it will only be a matter of time before we receive evidence of our newly found belief in the form of physical manifestations!!
And I don’t think there are many people who wouldn’t want to receive the answers and solutions to the questions that are important to them if they believed they could receive them….
But that’s just me….

And so it is….

Question from Master Eight…. Is it better to listen to other people?

AngelLuke
This is a conversation between me and my eight-year-old son that I recorded and then typed out for this post.
If you’re wondering why it’s because he often asks me the most amazing questions that we’ll have a long conversation about. The last question he had was a few days ago, and at the end of it I said: “I’ve got an awesome idea, we should try recording our conversations and I’ll make a post out of them!” He thought that was a cool idea, so this is a conversation we had today!

For ease of reading, I have edited unnecessary content and very personal circumstances related to the subject we’ve been talking about but feel it’s a truthful representation, most being word for word, of our conversation.

Master Eight-M8, is in Italics.

So what’s your question again Darling?

M8-Is it better to listen to other people?

Compared to what?

M8-Uhm…Uhm…

Compared to what you want to do?

M8-Yes.

So what made you want to know that?

M8-Because I just wanted to know if people should listen to others.

So you want to know if you should listen to other people?

M8-Yes.

Like what other people?

M8-Like you and Daddy, people like that…

So you mean just Mummy and Daddy, not other people, because do you usually listen to other people?

M8-Uhm…uhm…no.

Ok, who would be the other people in your life apart from Mummy and Daddy that you would listen too?

M8-Arghh…Uhm…My teacher at school.

Anyone else….or are you only talking about people you know well?

M8-Yer, not just like people you don’t know that are strangers because if people say things to me and it’s someone I don’t know, I don’t say anything and I just don’t listen to them.

That’s a good idea, it’s not good to listen to people you don’t know.

Do you think it’s a good idea to listen to Mummy and Daddy and your teacher at school?

M8-Yes.

Why do you think it’s a good idea?

M8-Well, sometimes if I don’t listen to you guys I might not get to do other things I want to do.

Ok, is that the only reason you listen because you don’t want the negative consequences?

M8-Yes.

Are you sure that’s the only reason you listen, because you don’t want something unwanted to happen?

M8-Yes.

So…Uhm…

M8-Well, sometimes I listen to you when I’m playing my game when you call me for lunch or dinner and I don’t just ignore you because I’m hungry.

Hehehe…

Well, I think it’s a little bit sad the only reason you listen is because you want to be able to play your game, is that the only reason you listen?

M8-No.

Well, what other reasons are there?

M8-Arghh…because…I’m thinking…I’m thinking…I’m thinking…

Well my question to you is, are you only listening to us to avoid not being able to have something you want?

M8-Well sometimes I get in trouble if I don’t listen to you guys.

Yes, but…

M8-And I don’t like getting in trouble…

Like what sort of trouble?

M8-Like if I am mean I get told off or I have to go away for a bit.

But aren’t you sometimes listening because it feels good to listen?

M8-Yes, it does sometimes.

But you don’t listen to us all the time though do you, so if we asked you to do something but it strongly goes against what you want to do you don’t always listen, which is okay I’m just saying you’re not only listening to us blindly without any regard to how you’re feeling.

M8-Yes.

Would it be true to say you’re making a choice to listen based on, will it feel better to listen and do this or will it feel better not to listen and do that.
And doesn’t the decision you make depend on the possible consequences you think may happen, and how much you do or don’t want to do something, but it’s still a choice that you make after weighing up all the pros and cons of the situation.

So would it be fair to say you’re making your decisions based on what feels best and what you feel will get you the closest to what you are wanting and sometimes that’s listening to Mum and Dad and sometimes it isn’t

M8-Yes.

That’s all you can do, that’s what everyone does, from where ever we are now, we’re all choosing what we feel is the best option for us, the choice we feel will hopefully produce the best outcome.

Of course, I’m Mum so I would always say it’s a good idea to listen to your Awesome Mummy wouldn’t I!! Hehehe

M8-And Awesome Daddy!! Hehehe

Yes, and at the end of the day, you’re always guided by yourself. Sometimes it’s good to listen, and sometimes it isn’t, I can’t say you should always or exclusively listen to anyone because you have to listen to yourself. Only you know what feels best for you, don’t you think Darling?

M8-Yes.

And so it is….

We’re just not supposed to know all the answers….Really???

BrickwallM&S2
Many times during conversations I’ve had with others, people have said to me, “I don’t know if we are supposed to know all the answers, or even if it’s possible to know all the answers?”
And I say, “Nothing further could be from the truth!” Nothing that we are wanting to know is being held from us, but when we think this is the case, it does become our experience, not because it is the “Ultimate Truth,” but purely because you will experience what you believe to be true. ( that’s the Law of Attraction in action again! )
And contrary to what many may think, we do not have to be rocket scientists to receive the answers to the questions we have about what’s happening or happened in our life!
But it is absolutely 100% necessary to believe and then know that we will receive the answers we’re so wishing for.
You do not need to know how, where and when these answers will come, who will bring them, and in what form they will manifest, it’s not our job to figure that out. ( and trying to figure it out before we’ve improved our vibration, is difficult )
That is something the universe is doing on our behalf with the powerful Law of Attraction.
So what is our job?
Well, just to live our life and to decide from everything that’s “out there” in the world, and from our own dreams that we’ve been inspired too… what we would prefer, or what we desire to experience!
Yes, desire…
This is the first step in creation, and it’s not that hard is it.
Every time we do anything, we know what we would prefer, what we feel would be better or improve our experience.
As this happens, the desire that has been born within us from what we have just experienced is received by the Universe. We do not have to speak the words of our desire for it to be fully heard and understood by the Universe, every time, no exceptions, ever! ( we are talking about the energy that creates and sustains life )
The second step of creation is not our job. This is where all the cooperative components required for the full physical manifestation of that which we are wanting are assembled by the Universe and managed by the powerful Law of Attraction.
So you could say, everything we’ve ever desired in this physical lifetime, is sitting vibrationally with the Non-Physical part of us, with all the components required to physically manifest assembled…and being held for us…
If this is so, ( and it is ) you may be wondering, “why aren’t I  experiencing any of it then!”
Well, I’m sure there are many things you have wanted that you have already and are now experiencing, but if our focus has been a bit Uhm….”all over the place” like many human beings on this planet, we may have things we have desired for a long time, that just never seem to come.
To be honest, desiring something is more or less a permanent state of being, but it isn’t a problem when we’re knowing how to align with that which we created through our desire, that the Universe delivered vibrationally, that the Non-Physical part of us….( don’t get mad with me here! ) Is living.
Yes, the Non-Physical part of us is living everything we have desired and is emitting a strong and steady vibrational signal of it, to us in the form of our emotions, that’s letting us know where we are in relation to the full physical manifestation of what we are wanting.
So what is required for what we have created through our desire, to physically manifest?
That’s the third and final step of the creation process.
For anything we are wanting to physically manifest in our life, we need to find a way to vibrationally align with our desire.
Remember, the Law of Attraction responds to our vibration ( thoughts and feelings ) by reflecting back to us in physical manifestations that which we have focused on and emitted vibrationally. To achieve the manifestation of anything we are wanting, we must find, achieve, and maintain the vibrational frequency of it.
And how do we do that?
We pay attention to how we are feeling, for this is communication from the Non-Physical, Inner Being part of us letting us know where we are in relation to all that we are desiring and have already created. ( the creation of it, took place when you first desired it purely, without thoughts of doubt and lack )
So if we are feeling strong negative emotion, ( that’s your own resistance to what you are wanting turning up so you can improve your vibration and come more into alignment!!) We can know for sure we are vibrationally a long way from a physical manifestation we are wanting, but instead are moving towards a manifestation that we won’t be too happy about if it turns up.
Now don’t be worried about every thought you have, it’s much easier to notice how we are feeling, for this always indicates in which direction our thoughts are focused, and we all have the absolute ability to gradually bring ourselves into a better feeling place by moving our thoughts. This I know.
If we are feeling strong positive emotion, we can know for sure we are vibrationally closer to a physical manifestation that will be very pleasing to us when it turns up.
The stronger the emotions are when we give thought to something, the closer we are to a physical manifestation, whether they are positive or negative.
When we have achieved complete vibrational alignment with our desire, the vibrational signal of what we are emitting and what we are wanting, are now the same, and there’s no longer any opposing resistant vibration to prevent what we are wanting from manifesting and being revealed to us in all of its physical wonderfulness!

This is the process of creation!!

1. We have a desire to know the answer to something that had been inspired within us from our own life experiences.
2. The Universe delivers the answer we have desired and the Non-Physical part of us emits the vibration of it to the Physical part of us, letting us know where we are in relation to the manifestation of it, which we feel as our emotions.
3. We pay attention to how we are feeling until we achieve vibrational alignment with our desire ( in this case an answer ) that the Non-Physical part of us is emitting a strong and steady vibrational signal of, that we continue to move to a better feeling place on, ( because we’re aware what it means ) experiencing the full realisation of that which we originally desired!
Oh, that’s just too good for words, don’t you think!
So there is nothing we cannot receive an answer about….But we do need to get into the vibrational vicinity of where the answer is….And we get there by feeling as good as we possibly can and believing in the power of who we are….
It’s the birthright of every human being on this planet to receive that which we have desired through the living of our life!
Not one of us has been left on our own without constant and consistent Inner Guidance….
So pay attention to it, listen to it, and believe it!!
Now is the time to take it….

And so it is….

A question about living in the present moment….

Lampost3
The following post is in answer to a question that was asked in relation to the post “A little word about living in the present moment.” If you would like to view the previous post here is the link,but I like to think that this post stands on its own whether or not you view the previous post. The question was as follows:
For me this is one of the toughest lessons to teach myself. I truly relate to celebrating small improvements, however, this still remains my greatest personal challenge. I would be interested to hear your perspective on how to remain focused in the present moment when there and those around me still wanting to discuss negative experiences from the past?
1. I have trouble recalling what exactly happened.
2. I don’t want to allow myself to return to a place of negative feelings.
Thank-you for your question Sherryn!
My answer is…
I totally hear what you’re saying, and I know it’s not always easy staying focused in the present moment, especially when there are many things going on around you that you may be focusing on and having many different thoughts about.
It’s usually all the thoughts we’re having about whatever it is we’re observing that maybe preventing us from staying present, especially if our thoughts are judgemental or negatively based.
Since others are bringing to you negative experiences from the past, it may be an indication that whatever they are bringing to you is something you also need to move to a better feeling place about?
Only you will know this because only you know how you feel in relation to whatever information they are bringing to you. And even if it is something you feel you need to move vibrationally on, it is for you to choose if that is the time and place you wish to try to do it, because you now have someone else’s input and vibration to deal with.
Sometimes it can be better or easier to move on subjects when you are on your own with your own thoughts, for doing it around others that are negatively focused takes immense power and strength of focus to do, for not only are you trying to move yourself to a better feeling place, now you may have taken on the task or burden of having to move them to a better feeling place also.
The fact that you are not remembering clearly what they are trying to rehash or bring up again is a great sign, it’s a sign you have not held on to negative emotions in relation to this experience, you have moved forward, and thinking about this even if it happened in the not too distant past feels like another life ago.
I would not try to remember negative details about something that you know you have moved forward on. If the person you are communicating with is important to you, you may wish to try and generally steer them in a more positive direction… but remember some people will not be easily moved from where they are, for they believe strongly in their perspective of what has happened and will point out to you, all the evidence that’s around them to support and justify how they feel and where they are! If this happens you are better to either casually redirect the conversation to something completely different, but if that doesn’t work, leave the conversation entirely!
This is not rude and can be done in a pleasant way. ( everyone needs to go to the toilet sooner or later ) Hehehe!!
But seriously, this is the kindest action you can take, for you do not do yourself any favours by focusing on what someone else has to say regarding everything that isn’t working in their life, and it definitely doesn’t do them any good either for they just create more power and momentum behind what they are not wanting by speaking of it to others, for the Law of Attraction is responding to their vibration in-kind just as it is to ours.
If they are trying to bring your attention to everything they perceive is not working in your life, do not take part in any way in these types of conversations. We cannot listen to people saying such things without including this is our vibration, especially if they are someone who is important to us or that we respect. You will know and you will feel if people are giving you advice and it’s coming from a pure non-resistant place, even if it isn’t 100% positive.
For me the easiest way I find to bring myself back into the present moment, is to find something around me, anything, it doesn’t really matter what it is, and focus intently and positively upon it to the exclusion of everything else, for this must bring you into the now, even if it is for a short period of time to begin with, for as you practice it more and more it starts to become more of your normal way of being!!
But be warned, many will see you as strange or weird, for they will say, “look at that happy one over there, why are they so happy? Look at everything that is happening around them!” And you will know what you have done to get there, and through knowing the power of who you are, you will be an example to others of what is possible, for when we get power and momentum behind us, it’s so good!!
And so our journey together continues…
