Ventures into Love: Day 9

Our experiences and life is a fascinating thing indeed.
There’s that thought that we are thinking of in the moment; it evokes an emotion in us. But the very same thought can evoke another emotion, can feel different in another situation.
Have you ever stuck your head out as you drive past country lanes?
That blast of fresh air and the exhilaration it brings is extraordinary. One of my favourite moments in life.

However, the very same 'The wind is blowing my face off' thought can feel icky and we want to roll the window up real fast and curl up in warmth; maybe it’s too cold outside or you feel chilly….

What changed in these situations was the underlying belief.
In the first scenario, I felt happy, liberated and free. I believed that the circumstances were making me more, they were adding to me and everything was perfect.
In the second scenario, I believed that the very same wind blowing into my face, was somehow making me less, was not the right thing for me then.
Ultimately, what I believed in changed how I reacted to the very same scenario.
So I think that I got my point through: Our beliefs are fundamental to how we experience reality.
But are they more important that our thoughts?
Not really.
This didn’t make sense to me until it did. Mike Dooley explains this one brilliantly.
Our beliefs are important because our thoughts become the things and events of our life.
Our beliefs allow us to think along certain lines, bringing us back to our thoughts being what we experience in life.

And by changing our beliefs, we think thoughts that are in alignment with who want to be.
This can be a toughie or a really fun project.
This can be fun if you let the Universe help you out.
You don’t have to get it perfectly right.
Just start wherever.
And the beliefs you choose need not be beliefs you already have. They can be beliefs you would like to have. They can be beliefs that feel like beautiful to you, but you are not sure if you really believe in them.
Write them all down.
 I did that and I take it with me wherever I go nowadays. I read through them whenever I get the time.
 Coupled with the 'detective' activity from a few days back, this activity can blast your life into a super galactic level of awesomeness!

Watch your thoughts, words and actions and see if they are in line with these beliefs you've written down. If not, then switch lines!
This can be fabulous when you decide to have fun with it.
Here are a bunch of beliefs I wrote down:
I believe that I move from a place of ease and effortlessness.

I believe that life is easy.
I believe that I am always at the right place at the right time.
I believe that I am surrounded by angels all the time, both in the seen and the unseen.
I believe that opportunities are being poured down on me.
 I believe that I meet incredible people who add to me in the most amazing ways.
I believe that I am a great conversationalist.
I believe that I am full of kindness, compassion and love.
I believe that I am at complete peace with every moment.
I believe that my body is miraculous and renews itself in every moment!
I believe that friends surround me.
I believe that inspiration is abundant in my life.

I believe that fun is all there is!
I believe that everything I touch turns to gold.
I believe that food is beautiful and I treat it with love and respect.
I believe that my life is glamorous, sparkly, sexy and fun!

I believe that I am photogenic!
I believe that we are all ancient gladiators of love, journeying through the magnificent jungles of time and space!
I believe that baby steps are easy to take!
I believe that I am light!
I believe that I am a beacon for amazing people, events and things!
I believe that I have so much time to do all that I want to do!
I believe that I am hale, hearty and healthy!
I believe that life is a breeze.

I believe that I respect everyone and everything, especially me.
I believe that my mind and body are in harmony with the spirit.
I believe that I always act out of love.
I believe that I am free!
I believe that I have received financial freedom…
I believe that there is only one Force and that is of Love.
I believe that there are more reasons to smile in every moment.
I believe that we are all natural healers of ourselves and of anyone we meet or think about.
I believe that I live among holistically healthy, wealthy and wise people.

I believe that I am always calm and composed in the now.
I believe that everything adds to me and makes me more.
I believe that money is easy.
I believe that me having mine does not stop others from having theirs. In fact, me having mine inspires others to receive what is theirs.
I believe that our Source is infinite and abundant.
These beliefs you write down will be a mixture of wishful ones and things you already know.
When you have an affirmation for what you already know, it helps you out when you are feeling lost. Like an anchor, it brings you back to your reality and who you identify yourself to be.
So go ahead and write those beautiful beliefs down! There is so much fun to be had!

Ventures into Love - Day 12

Here’s how life is supposed to work; how we are taught that the world works, how we are supposed to integrate into the mayhem:
Dream big. Work for it. Be bold. Go for it NOW. Have a vision. Break the steps down into bite sized pieces and keep making progress every single day.

I am actually feeling slightly breathless, just typing those words.
The thing is, this kind of pushing and prodding, this complete reliance over one's willpower that stems from the brain and it’s storehouse of experiences filtered through beliefs that alter the experience to a nutshell of what really is, is frankly exhausting.
Sure, when we face a particularly trying situation or we are subject to an enrapturing inspiring speech, we feel charged up and energetic.
We feel like we have so much to offer, so much that we can do, so much energy to run all the way to the top, that we enthusiastically take steps, turn over new stones, meet people, network and feel euphoric.
For some time, that is.
Eventually, we re…

Ventures Into Love : Day 17

You know that awesome tingly 'I have so got this! Things are going to rock from here on!' feeling that blossoms in your gut when you take up something new, start out on a new journey and the likes?

For example, the first day of a new exercise routine, or the beginning of a new hobby… the beginning of a new job, the first great conversation with a nice person we really like, the start of a new self – help book…
Any beginning by choice and passion is a cause for joy and I think I speak for everyone when I say that.
Have you also noticed how that this feeling is confined to the beginning only, in many scenarios in life?
I'll go with an example from my own life..
Whenever I read an awesome saucy 'self help' book, I feel psyched out and buzz – filled! I write down my dreams and I take the steps happily, genuinely excited about the changes I am helping bring about…
Then comes the second stage… that stage where the previously lovely ideas and wishes and hopes start feeli…

Ventures Into Love: Day 14

When I am in my room, I find it so easy to focus on the truth of me; how loved I am, that love is all there is, I am powerful beyond imagination… the works.

 But when I am in a crowd, in class, standing in line, waiting with a group of people, I find it so hard to focus. Impossible even.

All those affirmations, beliefs and practices go right out of the window, in such situations and I am left wondering about the usefulness of  enlightenment, if it doesn’t aid you in moments of need.

I think I am not alone in this. We have all been in situations where the group's energy and currents have engulfed us completely, beyond the scope of clarity.

When we are in a group, fully aware of our body and the surrounding physical world, we begin relying on our mortal strength and knowingness.
In other words, the ego takes charge.
We can’t help but let it take charge, because it is the only way we can see in the moment to get out of the suffering. And the endless narrations and suggestions begin,…
