You’ve heard me say that you create your reality, but for some of you, those are just words that have no meaning. So what does it actually mean?
To simplify it, it’s both the beliefs you’re thinking and the thoughts you’re putting out, as well as the emotions you’re emanating. You could be saying something very nice, but if you both don’t believe it, and simultaneously you’re vibrating in the energy of, for example, despair or anger, those emotions are going to override the words.
This is why emotional healing and emotional literacy are so important. Most people didn’t grow up learning how to identify and process through their emotions. The more you can own and acknowledge what you’re feeling, without judgment, the more you can work through everything attached to that feeling. Then as you heal it, you can raise up into an emotion that feels better. (See previous blog on “The Ladder of Emotions.”)
There are no good or bad emotions because even some “dark” emotions serve a purpose: anger might motivate you or give you boundaries. Frustration might cause you to innovate a new way of doing things. Granted some emotions are more difficult to see what their purpose is, but the less you judge them as bad and wrong, the freer you become, because acceptance can change everything.
Even though there are no bad emotions, you don’t want to sit in the lower frequencies all the time because you’ll attract more of that lower energy back at you. It’s like if you’re in a really bad mood, and then you start having an even more bad day where everything keeps going wrong, that’s a prime example of what I’m talking about.
Thus, by your emotions and the vibrations you’re putting out, you create your reality.
Now listen, sometimes you need to process through your grief, anger, pain etc. so I’m not saying ignore those and just feel better. You have to take responsibility for your feelings and work through the issues/circumstances you’re in, and sometimes healing those emotions will take time. This blog is about the day to day emotions that you may visit often.
Back to the topic: when you’re desiring to create something, get into the feeling first.
For example, last week I was stressing about something that I didn’t have an answer for, and I realized that that wasn’t helping the situation. I changed my thoughts to, “The Universe is always supporting me. The Universe has my back. The solution is now appearing.”
However, I didn’t just say those things, I imagined that as I was repeating them, the energy of peace was infusing my body. I took deep breaths and allowed the feelings of calm and trust to wash through me. I then got the image from my unseen team, as if I had been in the water flailing around, smacking the water, and they told me to just ride the waves. The more I said that I was being supported and taken care of, the calmer I felt, and the more I could just ride the waves.
Later on, a brilliant solution came to me to help with what was stressing me out.
I needed to create my reality differently than the swirling stress thoughts. It’s not always easy to do, but it’s the most empowering thing you can do. And the more I did it, the easier everything became, and help appeared from unexpected places.
Remember, own and process your emotions to shift your reality. You have the power to do so.
Me, just sharing ways to make you the best you can be!
