Letting go of the belief that everything has to be controlled, for our survival,
is a major transformation.
Holding a clear intention without resistance – that’s when synchronicities happen. You think about something and you get a call or a visit or it shows up on TV. It’s like when you’re really close to someone and they say what you’re thinking. Only in this case, you’re really close to the universe, and it’s “saying” what you’re thinking.
It’s happening all the time, but too often we don’t like the idea that what the universe is delivering is what we were thinking!
We don’t want to admit to ourselves that the experiences we are having match how we’ve been feeling (and not the other way around). Or that the experiences match what we believe or what we’ve come to expect. In essence, everything is right here, in this moment, but your attention is what brings it into being. Your attention brings it into your personal experience. You filter out the other stuff.
The pattern is so strong that it is not even conscious. We have patterns of thought that we have been reinforcing for a very long period of time. Because of that, they are on autopilot. You don’t have to do anything to activate them. Even though you think you are looking at something objectively and seeing the bigger picture, there is still a part of your psyche that is invested in having it be the way it’s always been. When you listen to the conclusions you’ve come up with, the hidden assumptions, these are the beliefs that prevent you from having it be different. The mind is very powerful. Whatever you say about something is what you are giving power to.
What are some of the benefits of changing your mind, instead of trying to change everything else? You don’t have to do such heavy lifting!
