What’s up everyone! I have been thinking today, about something that happens to us all…way too often. Have you ever noticed that you create chaos and obstacles in your own life, in order to give you the power you are lacking to make a decision once and for all about something? For example, some people may really hate their job, but they “need” it to pay the bills. They don’t want to do it anymore, but they don’t know what else to do either. They would never consider quitting per say…so getting fired would be the only way to free them of it, and in their own minds, give them a chance to shift into something else. Therefore, consciously or not, they may slack off, abuse the company credit card, talk back to the boss, etc, and eventually get fired. Another example of creating chaos to get clarity, might be abusing food or drugs and alcohol because we are unclear about what else we want to do with our time, or unclear about what we really feel passionate about. Therefore, we create a situation that ultimately causes us so much pain, that we finally HAVE to change if we don’t want to die (literally and/or metaphorically).
I write about this today because I am learning that I don’t have to suffer to get results. I use to think I did. Through lots of painful experiences, I did get more and more clear about who I am and what I want. That did make it easier to move closer to what I wanted because we must be very clear about what we want if we expect to attract it and manifest our desires. However, if we can get clear first…we can skip over the painful part. I think so many of us have success and happiness tied into the belief that we must suffer to get there…you know, really pay our dues. In my experience this is untrue. I do not think obstacles are bad by any means. I think they are blessings. When we are backed against a wall…we have to take action or be taken by our circumstance, and when we are put into that situation, most of us start making choices and getting more and more clear.
I urge you to practice getting more clear about what you want on a daily basis…before you have to get backed up against a wall. Chaos is the way in which the universe brings us opportunity to get clear. If we are already clear, we don’t need obstacles. Just a thought…I encourgae you to try it on:)
