When you look at the results others are creating in their lives, it can be incredibly inspiring or incredibly daunting and depressing.
Sometimes we forget to look at just how far we have come on our own journey. We sit in a space of negativity and allow this space to consume us. Both comparison and jealousy are low vibrational spaces to operate from, and remaining in these spaces will eventually lead us to unhealthy places mentally, emotionally and physically.
When we remember these people are showing up in our lives because we are calling them in, we are spurred on to take action. They are in our lives to inspire us to keep moving forward, to keep believing in ourselves, to enjoy and embody each wonderful moment of each glorious day. They are there to show us what is truly possible, to remind us to shift through to the next level of our lives.
When we are positive, grateful people we manifest similar people into our lives to help us fulfil our true potential, answering our soul calling, our true purpose in life. Many of us know this as the law of attraction, a powerful tool in anyone’s tool kit.
For those with a less spiritual outlook, they will know the old cliché saying of ‘birds of a feather flock together’ or ‘behaviour breeds behaviour’. It is inevitable that positive people will want to be around other positive people; just as negative attention seekers will attract other negative attention seekers.
Many of us live in our heads, rather than in our hearts. When living in our heads we can rationalise and analyse, sometimes overthinking and causing the ‘analysis paralysis’ scenario. Our minds play tricks on us and sometimes lead us to dark places.
For others the mind can be a very positive and powerful place to play, a place to visualise and create amazing scenarios; some to live into, some to capture on paper or on the big screen for others to enjoy.
As an author of fiction I can take a simple idea and extrapolate it to weave a story that entertains, inspires and moves people, as well as having the readers sitting on the edges of their seats. My mind is a playground, but for me to create my stories I open up my heart space to understand what some people may be going through, or needing, and write from a place of love and empathy.
When we shift from our mindset into our heart space, results we truly desire become easier to manifest. We start to get excited about life, we radiate love and positive energy and opportunities come our way.
So why when we are doing the work, showing up and believing our energetic vibrations are what call in the results, do some of us still not manifest the life we so desire?
For many it will be the environment we are remaining in, too afraid to let go of friends and family we have known all our lives; not realising not letting go of some of them is actually what is keeping us stuck.
Our deeply rooted values and belief systems borrowed from parents, society, religion and culture will also be a factor; and without diving deep into the stories we have created from these spaces we will be limiting ourselves in all that we can achieve.
Self-sabotage manifests in many ways. We may think we have let go of a certain belief system or fear, but when we step into the next level of our life and vision, we are met again with some of the debilitating fears, pangs of jealousy and comparisons we had at the start of our journey.
Revisiting this place of fear or jealousy from this new space of evolution will show us new insights on our behaviours and vibrational level. It will show us where we still have work to do on setting boundaries, releasing negative thought patterns, healing our inner child, and start honouring ourselves more.
It may show us that we need to start asking for more, move into newer environments that stretch us even further out of our comfort zones. It may mean we need to expand our vision, set ourselves bigger goals, or take more time out for ourselves, meditating and reflecting on what we truly want in life.
Sometimes when we are on this journey of evolution and growth, what we wanted yesterday isn’t what we want today, and we just need to start saying ‘No’ to the things we were saying ‘Yes!’ to yesterday. Checking in with our inner voice, our soul calling to us is essential. Reviewing our future goals, plans, dreams, desires (insert your own chosen words here) on a daily, weekly basis is essential to make sure jealousy and comparison, sadness and depression don’t creep in.
Practising daily journaling with affirmations and gratitude is one of the most powerful things we can do for ourselves and our future happiness and success. Reconfirming what we truly want to achieve in life, the impact we wish to have in the world, whether it is our immediate family, our neighbourhood, our workplace or on a bigger scale such as our country or the world as a whole will keep us motivated.
Staying motivated will enable us to take aligned action to achieve all we wish to achieve. Going shopping with the universe as I call it, declaring what we wish to achieve, will enable others to support us on our mission by introducing us to others or collaborating with us.
Remember we are all connected, and when we start to honour ourselves and listen to our own soul calling and purpose, we give others permission to do the same. When we radiate positive vibes in energy and thoughts, we attract others who do the same.
And if we all radiate positive vibes just imagine the amazing world we would be living in and the level of abundance we would all be experiencing.
