Daily Aligning with Love, Abundance, and Peace #40
Today, I’m so grateful and blessed that I have the ability to shift, change, and grow. When I saw the damage that the belief system, “People can’t change” created, I made the decision to start proving it wrong. First, I was blessed with watching someone I love shift, change, and grow immensely. Then, guess what, brain science proved it wrong too. Our brains have the ability to change and shift as we implement new belief systems and practices into our lives. That belief, if people are damaged, they will stay damaged, isn’t true. Now, this doesn’t mean YOU can change anyone else. YOU CAN’T!
People can only change if they want to. It’s an inside job, but here are some of the beautiful things I’ve discover on this journey of shifting, changing, and growing: The way I see others shifts, grows, and changes. If the person’s energy doesn’t align with the new energy I’ve acquired, they either fade out of my life or grow with me (I’m grateful for both). There is no force. I also attract new people (like a magnetic force) who are moving in the same direction as I am. Knowing these new truths has made me even more grateful to choose to shift, change, and grow in the direction of love, abundance, and peace.
The people who are in my life now are AMAZING! Even with all the fear, lack, and separation in the world, the magnetic pull of love, abundance, and peace is strong for the people who are committed to living in this energy.
Today, I commit to honoring my ability to change what no longer works in my life. If something isn’t working in my life, I can choose different ways to look at the situation. When I see that I’m not stuck in my thinking, I allow my feelings about the situation to shift. When I allow my feelings to shift from fear, lack, and separation TO love, abundance, and peace, a whole new set of options and possibilities opens up to shift, change, and grow. When I learned that I never have to be stuck with beliefs that don’t serve the way I want to live, I freed myself to become the best version of me. Not by changing anything outside of me or anybody else’s behavior, but by becoming responsible and accountable for the energy I project. Now, when I go down into fear, lack, and separation, I don’t stay there long AT ALL. I used to live there. Now, I just visit from time to time to learn where I still have work to do.
Today, notice if you have belief systems that are keeping you from living in the energy of love, abundance, and peace. Remember this isn’t saying we won’t have feelings of sadness, loss, fear, anger, etc. It means we wrap our feelings in love instead of numbing, running from them, or projecting them onto others out of fear. It helps me to visualize. Here are some examples:
- Being wrapped in a protective cocoon/chrysalis so we may develop our wings to fly.
- Being wrapped in the protection of an angel’s wings
- Being held by a nurturing mother
- Being protected and safe to heal in a white healing light
How Becoming an Empowered Woman Transforms the World
THE EMPOWERED WOMAN follows the belief system that is best explained in a quote by Byron Katie: “The most attractive thing about the Buddha was that he saved one person: himself. That’s all he needed to save; when he saved himself, he saved the whole world.”
The letters work in different ways depending on the chapter and part of the book.
