Today I want to talk about life as a reflection of what is going on inside of you. And if you're into the kind of material I share then I’m sure that you will have seen this already, but I hope what I'm going to be sharing today or some of the examples will give you will be fresh and might help you see it in a deeper way.
To start I am going to share something in my own words that I learnt from Abraham Hicks because I think they explain it so beautifully - We all vibrate at a certain energy and we have an energy field which they call the vortex. In this energy field you have been putting experiences, likes, dislikes and desires ever since you had an energy field. You have put all the things you believe in; the things that you think can happen, should happen, aren't happening. You have put in what you think is right, what you think is wrong, what you think is good, and what you think is bad. You have put in what you think about certain behaviours; how you think people should behave and how they shouldn’t behave.
Your energetic body is full of everything that you've put into it. You can never totally get rid of anything in there, but you can activate it or deactivate it by how you focus. The more you focus on something the more you are likely to see that thing showing up in your daily life. It does not matter if your focus is a positive one on things that make you happy or a negative one on things that you fear or dislike. The more energetically charged you are be it positive or negative the more likely it is to show up in your life.
I have a little example that I think shows how this works - I was walking with a very dear friend of mine today and we were talking about Facebook. She was saying how she was annoyed that she gets all these posts about conspiracy theories, people that are angry with the government, or causes and she was complaining about FaceBook as if they chose to send her these posts. I however have a very different experience, (this might sound a little big headed so please forgive me) my Facebook feed it's full of people being positive and caring and loving. I do occasionally get a post that isn't in alignment with where I would like to see my life but I just flick past it. I don't focus, read it, like it, comment on it, or share it. I don't interact with it at all. I simply flick past it. I am sharing this example because that's what life is like.
We all stuff in our energetic bodies things like conspiracy theories, unpleasant leaders, and opinionated people. I also have conspiracy theories, people that are angry with the government it's all there and I am aware of it it's in my energy field. I just don't give it attention. I instead I focus on love and kindness and a way of being that gives me joy and happiness. This is what I give my focus to. These are the things that I like, comment on, share, and that I interact with. And the other things that for me pull me out of alignment that I don't want to have in my world I simply flick past. That is not to say they do not ever show up in my life but when they do I give as little attention to them as possible.
I am sharing this with you because you direct what you experience in life. You have so much in your vortex and your energy field, but you have the choice of what you bring out and what you give focus to and what you don’t. It doesn't matter how you feel about anything in your energy field. The more you focus on it, the more emotion you have charged around it, the more it is going to show up and be in your reality.
Another example I have about this was when I lived in Botswana. I was a single mother, I had two very young kids (who then grew up to be much older) but in the beginning they were very young. I lived there alone with my children and from time to time we would experience crime waves normally when the river in front of our house ran dry. People got burgled on either side of me and all along the river I lived on. We also went through a major four year drought and at the same time the country was struggling to supply power to it’s citizens so there were lots of power outages. I remember consciously choosing not to focus on these things well to focus on them as little as I could and I believe because of this we were barely touched by these circumstances. We only had one theft and it was of a frozen pie from a freezer that was outside the house. And I think I can live with someone stealing a pie a frozen pie from my freezer. If they needed a frozen pie they're more than welcome to have the frozen pie. Our boar hole also never ran dry and we had water throughout the drought water even though everyone around us had to bring water by truck. In regards to the power we were again blessed. The power company declared that we were only allowed to use a certain amount of power in the evenings that was equivalent to turning on a kettle. Anyone who went over their allowed amount would have their power turned off for a whole day or more. We had three phase power which was different to most people so were unaffected. That is not to say we didn’t have any power cuts we did but we were exempt from the standardised ones that went on for months every evening.
I believe that this was our experience because I chose to focus on what we did have, on the positives rather than get sucked into the negatives and things that weren’t working.
I hope that this has in some way inspired you to see how you can create your own reality just by focusing on what you want in your reality rather on the things that you don't want.
