Are Your Beliefs Creating Heartache and Unhappiness

11I was thinking today about how powerful our beliefs can be.  They can control how we perceive other people and the world we live in, influence our future, and affect our every day lives.  Beliefs can take us higher, make us happier, work for us, and keep us in tune with our Inner Life.  But, they can also take us lower, make us unhappy, work against us, and keep us out of tune with our Inner Life.  Obviously it is beneficial to have a positive set of beliefs ~ but what if we don’t.  What if our beliefs are creating heartache and unhappiness. 

22Let’s take for instance a person who doesn’t believe they are worthy of a good life.  A person who believes they are “less than” with no hope in sight.  Can you imagine the struggle he or she must go through each and every day?  Waking up every morning with a feeling of dread for the day to come. Looking in the mirror and feeling nothing good for themselves.  Desperately trying to fit in somewhere, anywhere, seeking the approval of anyone who will give it to them.  Jumping from one relationship to another in an effort to find some sense of self and worthiness.  In time losing the ability to maintain a job, a home, and even worse ~ losing the ability to maintain overall well-being, balance and stability, all the while trying to be happy in a world that is completely painted with unworthiness.  A person who truly believes they are unworthy could have everything they want handed to them on a silver platter and yet find a way to destroy it all. 

Trust Your Gut Instincts

19We tend to forget how powerful our beliefs can be.  Once you think it, and start to believe it, your energy changes.  It changes to the point of then attaching itself to its own likeness. Meaning, you will start attracting what you believe – good or bad. In simple words, a belief is merely a thought you keep thinking, which in time becomes a part of who you choose to be, because you believe it to be true.  Whatever it is you believe, positive or negative, will in fact come true. All beliefs will in fact manifest into and become a part of your life and of you.  Any and all beliefs can be changed, but it is up to you to change them. 

20If you want to know whether or not your beliefs are creating heartache and unhappiness, take some time and think of all the areas of your life in which you feel dissatisfaction.  Now, ask yourself what your beliefs are surrounding this area of your life.  If you are not happy with your weight, do you BELIEVE you are fat and will never lose the weight? If you live pay check to pay check, do you BELIEVE you will never be wealthy?  If you have unhealthy relationships, do you BELIEVE you will never find the right person? If you are unhappy with your job, do you BELIEVE you can’t have the career you desire?  If you spent the last ten years of your life in prison, do you BELIEVE you will never have a normal life?  These are all very important areas of your life to look at and to determine if the cause of your dissatisfaction is from the beliefs you hold about them.  

32Once you determine which beliefs are creating heartache and unhappiness, all you have to do is change them. Begin by thinking the exact opposite even if you don’t feel it to be true.  Think it all through the day. Believe you are losing weight and slender, believe you have the ability to make more money, believe the perfect healthy relationship is right around the corner, believe you can excel in any career you so choose, believe you can have a happy and satisfying life after prison.  I promise you, in due time, if you keep thinking a new belief it will in fact come true.  It has no choice.  The now positive belief will attach itself to its own likeness and manifest right before your very eyes.  All you have to do is to BELIEVE!

If true and lasting happiness is what you seek, seek first from within.  Live, breathe and be your Inner Life.  Quiet your mind, focus solely on the present moment and allow the power of your Inner Life guide you to where you want to be ….

Trust Your Gut Instincts

06We have all heard the old saying “follow your gut”, but how often do you actually do it?  I recently learned a tough lesson by not following, or should I say not trusting my gut instincts.  It doesn’t necessary mean I made a mistake, for there was a lot of joy and happiness in this experience and lesson. However, there could have been a lot of pain and negativity avoided if I would have trusted my instincts. With every choice and every decision my gut knew, but I went against it anyways, always to land upside down. 

The question is ~ why did I go against my gut?  Perhaps I was a little naive, overwhelmed with moving to a new town, or maybe somewhere along the line I became out of tune with my Inner Life causing me to feel less than confident.  Regardless, I now know not to go against my instincts, at the same time only doing what feels good and makes me truly happy. 

818No matter where you are in your life, follow your gut.  It is your happiness that comes first. Make it a priority.  Do not allow anyone or anything come between YOU and YOU. Follow our gut through your journey of life, love, happiness, joy and abundance!  You will be happy you did. 

If true and lasting happiness is what you seek, seek first from within.  Live, breathe and be your Inner Life.  Quiet your mind, focus solely on the present moment and allow the power of your Inner Life guide you to where you want to be ….

And So It Shall Be …..

20So yes, I have been totally out of sorts, and that is putting it mildly.  Swirling around and around, stumbling as I fall, until I can’t see not a thing ~ not even what is right in front of me.  I know I have been allowing unwanted life experiences engulf me into the shadows of sadness and darkness.  And I know without a shadow of a doubt how to not allow unwanted life experiences control me.  However, as human as a human can be, even I, your Truly Happy Leap Like A Frog “Guru” got stuck.  I got stuck in the boundaries of my outer life, leaving behind the one thing that truly matters and that is my Inner Life.  The greater and most powerful part of who truly am.

For those of you who follow and read my blogs, you know I am a firm believer that in any experience, wanted or unwanted, there is a ray of sunshine.  We may not be able to see or feel it right away, but it is there looming over us, waiting for us to just let go and let it in.  Waiting for us to release the resistance to that which we do not want or fear, allowing the natural flow and balance of our Inner Life guide us with ease to a place where we will find peace, calm, well-being, abundance, happiness and love. 

05I realize it is not always as easy as it sounds especially if you are caught in the midst of your own perfect storm, but when you have everlasting faith, all things are possible.  And that is what I do have.  I have faith that the shimmering light of the sun will shine upon me allowing me to see all the wonderment of life and of death.   

I know life doesn’t have to be or feel the way it has been, but I have allowed it.  I have allowed tragedy and heartache take hold of me and take me to places I never thought I would visit again.  There comes a time when you can’t breathe anymore, when all that you once had feels like it got sucked right out of you, but it didn’t.  It is all still there waiting for me to stop the fight.  A fight I will never win. 

And so it shall be.  I am done fighting.  I am done living in resistance.  I am done living under a black cloud.  Now is the time to get back in tune with the greater and more powerful part of who I truly am.  The part of me that knows nothing but joy, happiness, abundance, peace and love.  My Inner Life is where I can rest in the loving arms and warmth of the Universe.  It is where I will find my beautiful butterfly, it is where I will find myself again, but most importantly, it is where I will plant the seeds of a new and amazing life with those I cherish and love.
