I have been getting ready for the New Year with a series of posts on Achieving Peace and Prosperity. My New Years Resolution will be to apply these insights in my own life. It's time to put my theories to the test. Last week I covered The Magical Power of Compassion, and how we can use kindness and generosity to consciously transform our lives. Compassion is an essential quality on the road to Peace and Prosperity.
Today I'm going to discuss The Magical Law of Individual Realities, and how we can work with it to influence our surroundings. The theory is that our unique experiences, and how we interpret those experiences create a set of beliefs. Those beliefs act as mirrors and magnets to create and attract situations that reinforce said beliefs. We create our reality: what is true for me may not be true for you. And what's possible for one person may not be possible for another. We all live in the same physical world, in theory we're all capable of the same progress, but sometimes our beliefs get in the way. There's a terrible anecdote I heard a while about about circus elephants, and how one of the baby elephant's legs is chained to the ground. As a child the elephant isn't strong enough to break the chain and it grows up believing it can't. As an adult, that false belief is the only thing that keeps it from breaking free and escaping the circus.
This is why its vital to examine our beliefs, our assumptions and to release the ones that colour our worldview in a negative way. These might be the result of conditioning, what we grew up hearing from our parents - or even things we experienced in past lives. There are plenty of tools that we can use to release these beliefs, including energy healing, affirmations, introspection and even education, if there's a topic that we are not particularly knowledgable of. To give you a human example, someone with a business background may tell you that you have to spend money to make money. Invest in your business, in yourself, build and strengthen your capabilities, etc. Whereas someone with a miser mentality may be prone to hoarding their wealth and seeing it dwindle over time. A good finance, marketing or business class would help the miser expand his or her perspective about wealth creation.
It's about unlearning beliefs that hold us back, so that we can unlock our true potential. Our beliefs influence our actions, and these shape the outcome. So take some time to consider your beliefs, your fears and any assumptions about the world. The idea today was to give you food for thought. Please comment with any ideas, questions or experiences related to individual beliefs and realities.
