Create a New Reality
Are you familiar with the Law of Attraction? Lot of people talking about it these days.
“Our thoughts create our reality.”
I have no problem with that philosophy. None at all. My concern is not with what we think, but how we see ourselves. I can think about getting that new job, or visualize having a great relationship but if I don’t believe I deserve it I won’t get it OR I won’t keep it very long, if I do.
Can you grow corn in sand? Can fish live in trees? Can fire burn without oxygen?
See where I’m headed? …if the environment isn’t right, it won’t work. Your corn seeds might be great, but they won’t grow in the wrong medium. My personal environment, my beliefs, my self image need to be an environment that is conducive to receive.
Otherwise I’m setting myself up to fail. [And you can bet I’ll find something or someone to blame for why it didn’t happen.]
“Guess I need to paint a new picture of myself!” Well yes, and no…
Paint that new picture – paint whatever pleases you- just don’t put it back in that old frame. It’s amazing what “re-framing” can do for ANY picture, new or old.
That corn, the fish, the fire…reframe their environment and watch them thrive.
If you’re feeling stuck, mebbe it’s not your thoughts that need reframing; take a look at what you’re planting them in. Reframe THAT. Change THAT.
I think I see a growth spurt coming…
