|Traffic can sound like an ocean hum! Photo taken at Waikiki Honolulu|
For a few moments, the tree lined path looked duller as my thoughts focused on the pollution I may now be breathing....but then the thought popped into my mind, the sound of the traffic actually sounds like the ocean. Well, yes it actually did! The moment I owned this thought, my body responded, I felt an extra skip in my step and a sense of relief. Yes, I like that, I decided, from now on when I hear the hum of peak hour traffic, I will pretend it is the ebb and flow of the ocean.

Well the way I see it, I am here in my body for a limited time. Through the power of choice, I have a certain amount of control over the quality of my experience here. It seems the strongest muscle we possess is our mind. It is a powerful force we have only scratched the surface of. We can let the mind control us or we can become its keeper, giving it direction that will benefit us and ultimately those around us.
Thoughts have energy. When we don't get the result we were hoping for, we can see it as failure or entertain the thought that perhaps we are being redirected. Maybe there is an even better way forward, or an improved outcome. Which thought makes us feel better? When we are tired we can say, omg I feel like crap or we can say, my body is recharging at the moment. Its obvious the latter feels more energising.
So if I am in denial when I hear the peak hour traffic, so be it, I would rather create an ocean reality. If I look in the mirror and I focus on a spark in my eyes rather than the wrinkles, so be it. To me, its not so much a matter of denial as it is of re focusing on what gives me energy and joy.
So I leave you to ponder, what is it in your life or in your mind, that you could reinvent the way you are perceiving that would benefit you?
Once we can identify and shift a stubborn, self deflating mindset, we radiate a positive energy that can attract amazing and wonderful things.
Have a fantastic April !
Below are some of your questions answered. If you would like to ask a question, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org I publish my Blog on the first Monday of each month.
QuestionI was recently forced to leave my job and am in the process of finding a new one. This search has been ongoing for more than 7 weeks now and I am loosing confidence in my abilities and faith that a job will eventually come along. Can you put my mind at ease, will I find employment soon? Katrina
AnswerFirst of all I sensed a feeling of congratulations coming from Spirit, which I know may seem strange, but I sense it was such the right thing to do to move on. A redirection for the next phase of life. The reason you have not yet found a job is simply because the right opportunity that matches your energy has not been present, but rest assure, it will not be long. I sensed you needed a bit of time to re group and get some things done in your life. I know its easy for Spirit to philosophize while we here on earth need cash! However, they reassure that all your needs will be met and I feel that in May and June you are very active and I see dollar signs around you. There also seems to be thoughts of self employment, and I want to say to hold those thoughts, even if now isn't the right time.
Please forgive the red text, cannot seem to figure out how to change it!
