Sparks of Insight“The Universe wants only the best for me. I trust the process of Life to bring only good to me. Only right action takes place in my life. ”

You are an individualized expression of the Infinite. How could the Universe want anything but the best for Itself? When you recognize that and trust that It is at work in every area of your life, you open the channels for incredible miracles to take place. The actions that then take place may not be the ones that you’d choose, but the Universe has a much broader view of your life. It can only give Itself the best outcomes that you can accept.

Sparks of InsightThe way you perceive an event actually creates the emotion associated with it. There’s a story of two elderly women flying to visit Paris, a place they both had dreamed of seeing all of their lives. Neither had ever been on a plane or overseas. One of the women, feeling her rapid heartbeat and breathing, perceived it as anxiety due to fear of new experiences. She was afraid of being on a plane and flying to a foreign country. The other one viewed those same reactions as excitement, because she was finally getting to see Paris. They had the same physical responses, but viewed them differently. You can do the same by finding a different way to look at a challenging situation. Instead of dreading it, find a way to change that to anticipation.

Sparks of Insight“People are not disturbed by things, but by the view they take of them.” ~ Epictetus

People tend to filter the things that happen to them through their past experiences. The subconscious colors the current event through the lens of the past. It may be a completely different place and person, but the subconscious doesn’t know that. Therefore, it’ll judge the situation according to outdated information. Just because a poodle nipped your ankle when you were nine doesn’t mean your friend’s dog will do it now. It’s not the present animal that is affecting your emotions, but your perception of the canine that’s disturbing you.

Sparks of InsightYour subconscious mind is the creative part of you. It’s the problem solver, not your conscious, rational mind. Your analytical mind recognizes a challenge, gathers information about it, then passes that information onto your creative mind to start finding a solution. The rational mind must let go of the problem and go onto other things for the subconscious to work. Sometime later, you’ll have an insight, an idea, a potential resolution pop into your consciousness. Test it out, see if it’ll work. If it doesn’t, let go it go, again, to let your creative mind continue processing. Eventually, it’ll come up with a solution that will work for you. This is the process of creation.

Sparks of Insight“I focus on the good in my life. What I give my attention to expands. Therefore, I experience greater good manifesting.”

When you give your attention and power to fearing some conclusion, then you’re attracting that into your life. The same is true when you direct your energy to what it is that you desire to manifest. Your focus simply gives your subconscious mind the direction, “This is what I want more of,” even if it’s what you don’t want. The subconscious cannot make that distinction. It’s just giving you what it thinks you desire.

Sparks of InsightWhen you have something challenging happen in your life, bless the situation. It may not be the way you’d want it to appear, but if you curse it or resist it, you’ll just give it more energy to get worse. Instead, if you affirm that somehow, someway, something wonderful will come out of the situation for you, you’re directing your subconscious mind to put its juices to work to create something even better than you could have imagined.

Sparks of Insight“Everything and everybody that come into your life are there for one of two purposes: either to heal you or to be healed by you of some wrong attitude of mind, body or affairs.” – Catherine Ponder

I’ve known some people who wondered why they attracted certain difficult people into their lives. Even after they’d examined all the issues, nothing seemed to resonate as to what they needed to learn. However, they noticed that the other person seemed to react strongly (and sometimes negatively) to things they said or did that were helpful or benign. Sometimes the situation isn’t about you. It’s about the other person. Your lesson may be to not take things personally and remember that you’re a teacher as well as a student.

Sparks of InsightIf you feel stalled or stuck in some area of your life, meditate on it and ask for guidance. The answer is within you. Visualize and affirm the solution. If there isn’t some progress within a reasonable period of time, take some constructive action. The movement may be in the direction of your goal, or it may be in a complementary area. Simply begin to channel energy to get things moving, for action begets action. More than likely, there will be some development or direction for you.

Sparks of Insight“There is a Power and a Presence that surrounds and indwells me. It’s wisdom and love flow through me and my subconscious mind, washing it clear of all resistance to good. I feel the lightness and love fill me.”

Many times, you resist good because it doesn’t fit what you’d consciously want, feel you deserve, or are able to conceive. Recognizing the Presence of the Universe raises your consciousness above all those challenges. Since God, the Universe, is all good, and everywhere present, you’re telling your subconscious that anything blocking It doesn’t belong.

Sparks of InsightIt’s easy and natural to be angry when you’re inconvenienced, treated rudely or poorly by someone. Rather than giving in to your first impulse, try taking a mental step back and approaching it from a more spiritual direction. Imagine yourself in their situation, and ask how you would react. You might discover that, although it shouldn’t have happened, you would be in a bad mood, too. Respond with empathy and compassion, and see what happens. More than likely, they’ll moderate their actions. If they don’t, you’ll have gotten some understanding and taken the high road.
