It is easy to think that your future is affected by your past situations. If you got in debt yesterday you may feel it will take you a long time before you can enjoy abundance. If you were sick last week, you may feel it will take you a long time to recuperate. If your heart was broken yesterday you might believe that there is no hope for you in future relationships.
While it is human to project the past upon the future, we in the heavens experience an entirely different reality. We live in an eternal now, and we know that the past exists only insofar as we bring it with us. In each moment, in every breath, dear ones, can you fathom that your entire existence begins again. Your state of mind, heart, and emotions right now dictates what you will experience next. And you can change this in the very next breath.
Take a moment right now. Acknowledge all you have been through in your past. The pain, the joy, the challenges. You do not have to think of every incident, but just allow a summary, so to speak, to bubble up with your awareness. Bless each incident as you remember it. Think of it as something that shaped you, must as wind and rain shape the mountains, but no longer exist. You have been carved and chiseled by challenges, built up by joy… and yet dear ones, none of those circumstances exist in this moment. All that remains is the you that you wish to be, right here, right now.
Take a breath and as you do so, remind yourself, “As of this very moment, I get to choose who I wish to be. I get to choose, via the gift of focus, the energies I want to call into my reality. I can see sunshine or rain. I can see opportunity or dead ends. I can see possibility or futility. I can see pain, or I can see hope. I can see abundance or I can see lack. It is my choice.” Now, summon your willpower by breathing deeply into your solar plexus, that area just above the navel and imagine you are drawing in light. You are drawing in truth. You are drawing in the deepest, most profound, and beautiful aspects of yourself. Using your willpower now, ask your heart, “What would you like me to focus upon.” Trust the first thing that arises within.
Maybe your heart wants to you to focus upon yourself with compassion. Maybe it wants you to focus upon the sunshine. Maybe it wants you to focus upon the fact that although your entire body hurts, the tip of your nose feels quite nice! Maybe it wants you to focus upon the home you sit in, in spite of financial difficulties. Allow your heart to guide you. “Heart, what would you have me focus upon.” Ask this throughout your week. Use your willpower to shift your focus according to your heart’s guidance. After all, it knows best how to create each present moment, and how to guide you into kinder, gentler, and more loving futures.
