Perfection over the illusion, Part 3

Raise your energies, raise your thoughts

This is part 3 of a five-part blog post. If you haven’t already, please go back and read parts 1 and 2.

Be a master of mind rather than mastered by your mind.
Zen saying

I’d like to begin by sharing with you a number of phrases, thoughts, and understandings that I have used over the years. They have created a great deal of peace, joy, and empowerment in my life. I will also share what they mean to me and how I use them.

1) Today I am going to create a day of peace and harmony.

You get to set the tone for your day. If you wake up grumpy and unfocused, you will attract more of the same. But if, when you wake up, you set a clear intention that you are looking to create peace and harmony in your day, guess what? Peace and harmony are what you will mostly experience.

So upon awakening, rather than allowing for random thoughts and feelings to enter, instead, clearly focus on peace and harmony and then think, feel, and imagine that the events coming up in your day are filled with peace and harmony. As well, during the day create periodic reminders that help you remember that above all other things, peace and harmony are what you want to experience this day.

The more you do this, the easier it gets and the better and more intentional your life becomes.

2) I can look at these things going on in my life now and say, “I am in charge here and can be in a place of profound peace.”

No matter what you are experiencing, know that you are not a “victim of circumstances,” but a master of your life. You get to make the “best” of any and every situation you are in and you get to choose how you feel about what you are experiencing. You can make lemonade out of lemons. You can see the highest good and the divine plan in it all. You are a master.

3) Don’t fall out of agreement with what is happening in your life, because when you do, you create a lot of emotional turmoil and resistance.

What you resist persists! 

Embracing who you are and where you are in your life presently is the quickest cure for tension and anxiety and for resolving those very issues that you wish were not in your life. 

Where you are is where you are.

To deny it or try to push it away only creates more of it. As you honestly face and then embrace the situation you have created, you can then let go of it enough to step back from it to see the bigger picture and get a broader perspective.

By stepping back in this way and giving some “space” to the situation, you can and will be inspired to take the right action that will lead to the highest good for all involved. This will help you to transmute the energies of what you don’t want into what you do want. In other words, by doing this you will see “outside the box” and thus be led to empowered solutions.

As Albert Einstein said, “you can’t solve a problem at the level it was created.”  You must see the bigger picture by seeing the situation with the eyes and heart of your Soul. You must quiet the fearful ego mind and all the drama it creates and instead listen to your grounded, wise Soul.

I’ll continue this list in my next post, Part 4 of this series.
