Here on Earth, because of all the physicality around us... we think reality is real, and actually quite a solid thing.
For example, think of your sob story for a moment - the sad story of your life that you fall into sometimes that explains why you are a victim now and why things can never be better for you.
Yes, you can feel it... we all have one.
I invite you to write it down, have a whinge, get it out, look at it objectively on paper... part of you (or most of you) actually believes this, and thinks it is REAL REAL REAL. It's fact, it happened, it's a thing...
But notice the feeling that it brings up in your body.... that yukky feeling you've felt so many times before. Unfortunately this feeling has pulling power, and actually attracts the things you don't want - keeping you in a cycle that perpetuates the reality and beliefs of the sob story, making them seem all the more true and just.
That yukky feeling you feel about your sob story is demonstrating to you that you are out of alignment when you look at your life that way... How would your angels view the situation? What if you could see it all differently? With a different attitude? In a more empowering and enlightening way that liberated you rather than made you feel stuck?
This is what I did here with my money sob story, I wrote a new story with new perspectives and attitudes that made me feel better. There is immense power in this... Here it is...
"I came from a reasonably well-off family and was never really lacking anything materially as a child. I got teased at high school for being well-off, and that made it seem repulsive and embarrassing to me.
I rebelled as a teenager, thinking it was cool to be on the benefit, and that rich people were snobs. I felt acceptance from my peers because I was broke like them.
I saved enough money to go overseas and I met my husband who I thought would be a good provider, but it turned out that his values were very different from mine, and as a result, I was financially stunted for the 11 years we were together. I didn't manage to get ahead at all or accunulate any assets of any monetary kind.
I left that relationship, and am getting by with the work that I am have, but it always seems to be only just enough and I want more."
And I upgraded this to....
"I came from a well-off family with solid, secure parents and money was never a problem. I always had enough, and I had enough to go travelling and see the world a bit in my early 20's.
I spent 11 years in a relationship that helped me to refine what I really want regarding my life, and it helped to connect me more with my authenticity and direction.
I have now created a beautiful life around me - a wonderful home, beautiful children, my dream job, a soulmate relationship and I feel abundant!
I realise that abundance is not about accumulating stuff, it's about the constant in-breath and out-breath of prosperity, and being in a state of knowing that more is coming.
I am so grateful for everything my path has taught me. I am at peace with where I am and open for more."
Do you see what I did here? Same story viewed from a higher perspective... but which one feels better?
Do you see that if you change the story, upgrade it, raise its vibration... you are actually messing with reality! And that sob story that you thought was oh so real, actually starts shifting... and instead of feeling stuck, you start magnetising magic!
Because the truth is, and this is the really important bit... reality is actually fluid. Not stuck in place like we tend to think sometimes... and things can change for you in an instant.
When you remember that, dear Reader, oh my gosh what a difference it makes!!
You don't need to unravel years of negative thinking in order to feel good now... no matter what circumstances you have come from in your life, you can do something, think something, read something, be grateful for something that makes you feel good NOW, and your have changed your vibration NOW, which is what "reality" is responding to NOW.
It doesn't matter what the details of your current situation are, the LOA is reflecting back your vibration... so you can be in poorest conditions with the most awesome attitude and mind-set and you'll be magnetising some pretty amazing stuff!
Reality is fluid and it can change in an instant.
Don't worry about the future or the past, just make yourself feel better now... and now.... and now..... and now.... and now..... and now.....
And if you can't make yourself feel better, seriously, arrange an appoinment with me!!
