Whatever you stay focused on long enough you create in your life through experiences. As you keep the mind focusing on positives, mastering gratitude and the emotions focusing on high self-belief and appreciation, you create a deeper sense of peace, joy and love in your life. By putting all your focus on your fears and insecurities and allowing them to control your life, you will create drama and non-positive experiences. This doesn’t mean you ignore, resist or act as if the fears or insecurities don’t exist. Rather you don’t allow them to control your life. You face and release your fears and insecurities triggered in your belief system by taking responsibility for what they are showing you and transform the beliefs to more positive loving ones.
Affirmations are one tool to help in shifting fears and insecurities to more positive loving ones. Affirmations are positive words used in the present tense that you say, see, feel numerous times throughout the day to shift the belief system in areas where there is lack of confidence and self-worth and/or fears. Saying these positive words in the present tense and numerous times to oneself daily, supports the transformation. Using positive words is like being an actor or actress, where you are playing a different role in life. You are convincing yourself that you are better than you think you are. Your vocabulary shifts your attitude, which shifts your focus, which shifts your belief. This new vocabulary changes your thinking habits thereby changing your perceptions in life. With this new perception, you create new behaviours and a different reality.
Another tool is to literally let go of the mind control where you surrender all your attention from your fear and insecure driven thinking-feeling to GOD and things you appreciate. Doing this helps to let go of the hold on the non-positive thought and feeling patterns and allows you to shift your focus to that of which is more productive and positive.
When you strive toward resolving your insecurities and fears, you end up taking better care of yourself and thereby enjoy life more. Your attitude says, “I would rather LIVE life than worry about it.” By taking responsibility for your life and the fears and insecurities, the decisions you make are more productive. Your life is run by what brings you happiness and wellbeing because you know you deserve it. You assert your feelings and thoughts with conviction and compassion on situations and people who affect your happiness and well-being. Your life focus is on balancing your life in all areas. You are enhancing a positive attitude, by trusting your intuition and allow it to be your guide rather than allowing other outside sources to be your guide or tell you what is best for you. You are able to stay focused and present in the moment, aware of your surroundings, embracing and experiencing them to the fullest, rather than future tripping, worrying, and playing victim to your circumstances. Rather than looking at the ½ empty glass or the ½ full glass, you look at life as the whole-full glass.
The mind is present, clear of any thoughts of the past and free of any future plans, predictions or figuring out outcomes of the future. There is an acceptance and appreciation of the NOW.
You have more compassion for people’s flaws and insecurities and come from an acceptance leading to greater understanding of what is going on, without personalizing or judging. You are able to forgive them for their mistakes and incompetence’s because you will have a greater understanding of their behaviours. You thereby are able to use discernment when selecting people to associate with based on the level of joy you want to experience and the ability to be the whole person you are.
If you put aside your preconceived ideas and come from a place of being fully conscious in the moment and listen from that place on what you are hearing, you will establish a deeper connection. Disagreements don’t have to lead to conflict if they are discussed in a mutual peaceful manner, using ‘we’ rather than the ‘me’ and ‘you’ verbiage. Inner peace will begin when we truly can forgive others and our past and receive the wisdom from lessons behind these experiences
We will lead a more peaceful world take the time to accept each other, rather than attempting to understand first based on our beliefs, and then deciding whether to accept or not. Judgement and wars comes from bias thoughts, preconceived notions and lack of acceptance. Divine love is portrayed as one who chooses to stay present, fully conscious, using active listening, choosing to care and to fully accept others. In all the religions, countries and each other learning to come from a place of genuine interest and acceptance for our differences is coming from a place of divinity in love.
It starts with each of us and really begins with all of us. Do we have to go through war-struggle before we choose peace? Please take the time to make peace happen and be kind to each other rather than just live life, enjoy life and make a difference.
