Your Life is a Magnet

Your life is a magnet. Yes, it is. You may not have thought of your life in this way, but it attracts and repels. Yes, this is what a magnet does. We learn in physics that magnetism is;

“a physical phenomenon produced by the motion of electric charge, resulting in attractive and repulsive forces between objects.”

Well, this is precisely what happens in your personal space. The people who need to be in your life will be attracted to your life, and the people who do not belong in your life will be repelled. You ask, how is that possible? There is a part of you call your soul, and this thing is smart by design. Your soul searches out the other person and gives you a feeling or sensation about that individual.  The soul examines the aura of the person.

What you need to know is to be aware that your life is a magnet and it carries out its job to attract or discharge folks. Sometimes without you consciously knowing. When we live on  The Alphabet Circle Journey, we learn that our awareness is heightened and we are in tune with our souls. We embrace those who show up, and we accept those who have been repelled.

So, how do you deal with the magnet of your life? You pay attention. You embrace your highs and your lows. Know that all things happen in your life for a reason. Don’t panic when things happen. Folks in your life will either stay, embrace you or help you or they will move on. Both options are necessary for your growth.

Leave me a comment to let me know about your magnet experience.

Expectation can be Destructive

What is your expectation of your friend, co-worker, child or parents?  Expectation plays a big part in any relationship and can sometimes destroy them if we are not careful. In any relationship, we expect. Whether we aware are or not, we do. We expect a particular behavior from folks with whom we interact. It could be a colleague or even a child, and the interaction can be verbal or non-verbal. Disappointment comes when our expectation is not met. My questions to you are, Is that fair to you or the other person?  How open are you to embrace others when they show up (manifests) as who they are in the experience? Why do we get mad when people show up in their experience as themselves?

So, if we focus on being open, which requires us to Be Present in the experience, there will be no disappointment. In this space, we are not judgmental, and ego plays no part in the experience because we are consciously aware of being present.

Having this backdrop, how open are you to children showing up with their scars and wounds in their experiences without any judgment. But simply an appreciation for the whole organic human showing up.

First, I’ll focus on kids. As a teacher or parent, how often are you open to a child when he/she manifests who they are? Most of us get shocked because society says the child should behave in a particular way or there are rules at school that says the child should show up as something you can recognize. Children, like adults are humans that have been scarred and they carry their scars and battle wounds with them.  The problem with the expectation is that it was set for the standard norm and how many of our children are that?  How many of our adults are the standard norm?

Second, let’s go on to grown-ups. Broken or wounded children grow up into the said adults. Now the experience is transferred into the adult space such as a job. You see, its a vicious cycle and until we address the wounds we cannot think about a resolve for these humans.

You would not try to have an in-depth conversation with a sick person. You would wait until that person heals before doing that. Same here. We must address the wounds and get them healed, and we must recognize that the scars represent the history of the human.  Be cognizant, Be aware and that’s a good start.

Happy Thanksgiving — A Celebration of Gratitude

Today marks another Thanksgiving day— a celebration of gratitude.  What are you thankful for today?

Another year, another day, friends, family and even your enemies as they keep you on your toes. That being said, gratitude is an awesome word.  No matter what circumstance we find ourselves in, having a place in our souls or our hearts for gratitude gives us the opportunity to go on. Its give us not only the wisdom but the energy to put one foot in front of the other and take the first step and the second and then the third.

Gratitude is what gets us through dark days, and yes, we do have them. However, when you can put the thought of your situation aside, then you can think about being grateful. It opens up a world of opportunities for blessings and miracles for you.

Have you ever been in that situation, or know someone who’s been there? Pining away, wallowing in self pity because something dramatic has happened in his or her life? This may have gone on for years, or weeks,  or days. Suddenly the thought of gratitude filters through to the mind and leads a transformation so huge that you have to ask the question of “what changed?” To your delight, you get an answer that he or she cannot continue the old way because it occurred to him/her that there is still so much to give thanks for and that is what will happen.

See, gratitude brings clarity, and as of today, I want you to find gratitude in every situation. If you are alive to talk about it, then you must be grateful. Be grateful for the small things and the big things will eventually happen.  Gratitude is one of the ingredients to your miracles. Yes, it is. Be grateful on this Thanksgiving Day and continue to be grateful for the rest of your life.

Leave me a comment and let me know how you plan to go forward being grateful.
