A lot of people don’t know how to communicate properly anymore and fail to make meaningful connections with others.
Many lost their ability to observe and to be objective. They don’t know that their perception is filtered internally and that they react to their environment according to their own beliefs.
They lost their ability to listen without judgement, they are full of preconceived ideas on how others should behave, act or be. They just pick up the bits and pieces that seem useful to them and that match their inner reality.
They don’t give people time nor space to tell their story and say it as it is. They don’t give people room to be who they truly are.
It is a huge handicap ! From this inability confusion and misunderstanding arises. We let our emotions get in the way and often react without having truthful information. We often make decisions according to our assumptions or even according to a hearsay.
With empathy comes the power to hear what was left unsaid. With empathy comes the ability to feel what’s really a burden to people’s hearts.
Empathy is a superpower that we urgently need back !
“There is no saint without a past, there is no sinner without a future.”
This is one of my favorite sentences to help me clear my perception from all errors. It can evaporate the belief in separation and make you see people “whole” again. These words alone have the power to put an end to all judgement.
How can you be free from judgement when your subconscious mind repeatedly finds evidence in the form of past hurts, mistakes, sins, shames and blames ?
In case your mind objects : Love overrules every judgement !
You stop projecting your fears upon people, you stop reflecting theirs back ! You stop taking cover or taking over when you interact with people !
You stop projecting past and future into the present and become sensitive to truthful perception and make truthful connections instead.
“I am responsible for what I see. I choose the feelings I experience, and I decide upon the goal I would achieve. And everything that seems to happen to me I ask for, and receive as I have asked.”
A strange phenomenon takes place when you clear your perception of how you think people are or should be. They are suddenly able to drop off their masks and show you their true identity.
It is a side effect of being fully in Power ! You return to the original template.
“The door leading out of this illusion opens up through the light of your soul.”
See the material world as it truly is : a mirror of your inner world, a representation of all your beliefs.
The source of your perceptions is found within. The cause of your experiences lies at your own core. You build your world from the inside out !
Shut the door to your five senses to reach the stillness of your heart ! Silence the thoughts that leave you with an emotional hangover, causing turmoil in your body ! Let them come and go like the water tides… don’t attach to them !
Without any condition put on this moment, without any judgment towards any other being, you open up to the wisdom of the heart at the speed of light !
“And so it is, that both the devil and the angelic spirit present us with objects of desire to awaken our power of choise.”
The word desire comes from the latin word desiderare which means to long for, feel the want of, to miss or regret.
Desire is a strong emotion, several changes take place in your body when you are in a desiring state. You can see it in a person’s attitude and behaviour, in their facial expressions, the way they look at a particular object or person and you can also hear it in the way they talk !
There are desires of the flesh and desires of the heart. There are desires able to close the gap, others just destroy and tear apart.
Desire can be associated with feelings of unease aswell as ease and pleasantness ! It all depends on how you (re)act to it : how does the desire make you feel and where exactly do you put your focus on ?
Imagine you are in love with a girl, but you are too shy to make a move… as you are walking the street today, you see her hand in hand with another boy…
What kind of feelings would rise up within ? How would you react ? What would you think ? Would there be resentment, hate, despice towards the boy or towards both ? Would you curse him ? Would you think bad thoughts about him even though you have never met ?
Would you be filled with sadness ? Why not me ? It should have been me ! What am I doing wrong ? I am such a failure in love, I am such a loser in life…
Or would you become obsessed by evil thoughts and turn into a predator ? You anxiously want to be in control, you wanna take what you want no matter what. You prey upon the girl and see her as something to conquer and to possess !
What do you perceive ? What do you believe ? Does it attract the things you desire or does it repell all these things from you ?
Desire can be the catalyst for growth, it can provide you the necessary fuel for change but a burning desire can consume you if you don’t fuel that fire with the right intentions !
It was again a headliner in our news yesterday : Several youngsters, age 14-25, are not feeling comfortable in their skin, more depressed teenagers…It sounds as if it is becoming a plague !
Children are drifting without direction, feeling lost or feeling drowned in a bunch of illusions…Our children are not broken, they don’t need to be fixed ! Their view is disturbed.
They have to put on new glasses and learn how to perceive their world differently. They have to put things back into perspective and broaden their view.
That means parents too. Children often mirror their parents’ behaviour. When you coach a child, you often need to re-educate the parents !
A lot of my coaching time in sports is spent on learning children how to cope with all distractions on and around the field. I can’t help but having the impression they need to defend themselves more and more against adult behaviour !
How often do we stress on the negative ? Are we feeding them that they have to focus on results ? “Don’t let me down son !” or “Don’t dissapoint me !” Or are we stimulating them with a “Surprise me”, or an “I know you can do this !”
I often hear parents shouting at their kids next to the field. They see their son not finishing a shot properly and they yell : “Jason, are you stupid or what ?”
You can immediately see the body language of that player altering, now he is completely out of the game (not focused), tensed (he uses more muscles then necessary) and he lost strength (the remark of his father “hit” him and made him go weak !)
Does shattered glass bring new opportunities or are they just broken windows attracting more bad luck ?
Can you see who hides beneath that brokenness ? Or are you sticking your head in the sand, being blind to truth ?
Can you see who hides behind the mask ? Or are you just keeping up appearances aswell ?
The difference lies in how we perceive our children, how we treat them and what we “feed” them !
“If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.” – Wayne Dyer
Creative livingstarts with right perception : you use your senses to perceive everything around you without putting meaning on things. You know it goes the other away around and that what you see outwardly is only a reflection of your inner beliefs. You know that in order to change your outside world you have to turn your focus inside.
Do you feel everyone is against you ? Do you care or are you concerned about what others think of you ? Change your perception ! Why do you believe that what others think of you is the truth ? Only what you believe about yourself is valid, do not let what others think of you affect the way you feel about yourself. This way you allow other people’s negative energy to enter in your system and to be vulnerable for psychic attacks.
Sometimes your judgement of the person is causing you to not see the person as he truly is. Your own judgement and belief about yourself and others are the real enemies. What you see appearing in your world is what you truly feel about yourself. Fortunately it is your belief and you can change it. Fortunately you have total control over your own behaviour, your own thoughts and emotions !
Creative living is living from a “heart based mode“. Meaning you use your intuition ! Therefor you have to be able to silence the mind, so you can be in a receptful mode, ready to receive intuitive answers. You just need to connect to your heart’s wisdom and feel this divine guidance. Know that all is well and that everything is already provided. Tune in with the wisdom of nature. Get the atonement with your higher self, focus on pure love and see the answers appear. If it makes you feel strong it usely is the right answer, if it makes you go weak, it probably isn’t ! You can feel this in your body, you can trust this knowledge ! Once you accept your own power and accept that at any moment in time you get your answer, you can feel safe and in peace and be undisturbed by outer appearances.
Peace is such an ingredient in everyone’s life, without which no creativity is possible, no intuition is possible, and without which you don’t have energy either.
Gurudev Sri Sri Ravi Shankar
Creative living is to become like children again and get our sense of wonderment back ! We put so much stuff in our heads, we barely notice what is happening around us in the now, we barely recognize the joy and wisdom of the present moment, we barely see how the world is actively communicating with us, sending us signals, constantly. Instead we are trying to make a living and we are trapped in a cycle of struggle and survival, trapped in negative thoughts, trapped in a unmeaningful life ! We go against our grain and become eventually depressed or burned out.
Listen ! Earth is living and breathing with us. As humanity we are eighter assisting in the expansion or the contraction of the world but we are always participating whether we know this consciously or not and whether we like it or not !
Begin to take care of yourself and take care of our planet ! We can eighter destroy ourselves and the planet and continue putting crap and negativity in ourselves, spewing all kind of bad things out on planet earth or we can change our vibration towards positive change and oneness ! We are our own saviours !
