Asking better questions

The subconscious / unconscious mind is hugely powerful, regardless of any spiritual considerations of who or what it may be able to tap into. In and of itself it contains a vast store of information and memories, all with attached beliefs and emotions. The question is; what are you going to do with it? It’s a frustrating peculiarity of the human condition (or, at least, western ‘civilized’ conditioning) that many people devote a lot of time and energy to asking their subconscious to answer questions such as:

What can You do?

If a million people, individually, say “there’s not much I can do, my contribution won’t make a difference” then, of course, they’re right. But if a million people say “I’ll do what I can, it may not be much but I’ll do it anyway” then you have a force so powerful that governments and corporations take notice and positive change is possible.

You do not have to save the world, you just have to do your bit knowing that, however insignificant it may seem at the time, you are part of the unfolding perfection of the universe. You have a part to play, and there are no bit parts, so play it joyfully.

That is all.

Coping with Joy

Or how to deal with the fact that your life doesn’t suck any more!

Jumping joyfully and triumphantlyIt’s true, but it seems like a strange thing to say; living in a constant state of joy, ease, bliss, peace, love, harmony and abundance can take a bit of getting used to!

The problem, I think, is that ego, the personality, for many of us is so used to dealing with quite the opposite of this that, when things take a dramatic turn for the better, it starts to get worried. Far from embracing and enjoying this new emotional wellbeing, it pines for the old and familiar, and will try to take us back there to ease its discomfort!

Changing your reality

If you want things to change for you, first YOU must change. If you want things to be better, YOU must be better. You may not want to change, you may think change is scary, but change you must, especially if you are new to the idea of creating your own reality. All is not as you may have been lead to believe. Look at it like this:

Expecting the best

Range Rover Evoque Victoria BeckhamI’ve been fascinated this week by expectation and intent, and how this impacts my quality of life. In particular this has been highlighted for me in the area of customer service.

It all started when I read a blog post by the inimitable Randy Gage in which he talks about his appalling customer service experiences when buying a car.

Have you failed?

Have you? Have you ever tried to do anything and failed? Have you ever been told that you’ve failed, or told there’s no point in you trying? Ever been put down, cast aside, dropped, dismissed or abandoned? Ever felt that you weren’t good enough? Have you? Have you ever felt that you’re not good enough?

Know this one thing: YOU ARE GOOD ENOUGH. Continue reading Have you failed?

Where is happiness?

Happiness, as Beran Wolfe* observed, is not under the radiator. Nor is it in a bigger house, a newer car, or a better job. Happiness is not to be found in having more money, time, toys, space, clothes, sex, food, drink, drugs, exercise, books, TV, sleep, holidays, furniture or chocolate. Certainly, should you choose to look, you will find many happy people who have some or all of these things, but equally you will find any number of unhappy people who have all of these and more in plentiful supply. No, happiness is not to be found under the radiator, under the bed, in the bed, in a flowerbed or up a tree. Happiness is just not to be found. Continue reading Where is happiness?

Serendipity? No such thing!

How curious that, on the very day I was planning to write a blog post about luck and synchronicity, I happened to find Simple Dude’s blog, I spotted the S30P logo, clicked through and saw that this week’s writing prompt was ‘Serendipity’! Clearly a case of serendipity in action. Or is it? How else would you explain it? Well, that depends on your definition of Serendipity. Continue reading Serendipity? No such thing!
