Your Thoughts Create Your Reality
Living Our Deeper Song
The Creative in me honors the Creative in you!
Our imagination is a powerful creative tool. We can go exploring. We can experiment with an idea. We can try it on for size in our minds. Your thoughts create your reality and your thoughts also help you decide what you want to create as your reality. What would it feel like if? What happens if I do that? Use your imagination to explore a particular path. Let it take you down side roads and around barriers and explore what it would feel like to reach a particular destination. You can try the whole experience on for size in your mind. Is this what I want? How would it feel if I did this? Do I want to do this? Use your imagination to explore the options and see how they feel, how they resonate and the new possibilities they suggest. It’s like going into a store and trying on things before you buy them. Use your imagination to shop your options.
DEEPER SONG AFFIRMATION
I use my imagination to explore the possibilities that are open to me.
DEEPER SONG PROCESS
- Choose an option that you are considering and use your imagination to explore how it feels, how it might unfold, what it will offer you.
- Also use your imagination to look at any stumbling blocks and how you might get around them.
- Let your imagination guide you and show you new ways to proceed.
Deepen our Inner Awareness
Preparing for Change
Change begins with letting go. You let go of what you believe you deserve. You let go of what you believe is possible. And you redefine both of those. You pause in your life and look above the fray to define your new vision, your new way of being, your new purpose. And then you start letting go. Let go of anything that does not support that new vision, that new path you are taking. It’s not always easy to let go of the familiar and comfortable and move into the unknown. But that’s what adventuring is all about. New experiences, new objectives, new wisdom. That part is exciting. Letting go is a little trickier.
Begin with what is at the core of your life purpose. My spiritual life is at the core of my existence so the altar I create to take with me is central to my next experience. At my core is how I both learn and then turn and share what I learn. So my computer is important. And online is where my friends are. My social life, if you will. It is my source of learning.
My physical well-being seems to be third on my list. So as I make this downsizing move into Assisted Living, I’m looking at a reclining chair that also helps me stand up to get out of it.
As my eyesight diminishes, my new learning forum is going to be podcasts and online summits that are free because I won’t have the money for online courses anymore. As I move into assisted living, I get a very small allowance because Medicare goes for the food and shelter I receive. I’m going to turn to free resources for learning. There are plenty of those. I know how to get audiobooks from the library. And I have my mind. My wonderful inquisitive curious mind to continue to take me on adventures. So I will continue to explore. I will continue to go on adventures of discovery.
What is important in your life that you will take with you when you move into a new challenge, a needed change?
Explore with Passion
We can dream things into being. Immerse yourself in a vision of the experience you want to have. Notice how you feel and look around and see
how the landscape changes around you, what new opportunities open up. Turn in a circle and look down every pathway that shows itself to you. You don’t have to know how it will come into your life, just trust that it will.
Your job is to lay the groundwork, follow any leads you can find, and prepare for change. Use your imagination to try on new possibilities.
Take Responsibility for Self-Healing
Listen To Your Inner Voice
My inner voice has been offering me some very unusual suggestions. And I am taking time to examine them. And try them on for size. And perhaps even make a choice based on what I discover. I trust my inner voice and it can sometimes be very full of surprises.
Exploration of New Potential and Possibilities
Repurpose What You Have
It’s fun to get creative and repurpose what you have. To accommodate this down-sized move I’m thinking “up” rather than
“out” for what I bring into the space. What was a tall, slender bookcase to hold special items is now my office and holds whatever I need that has to do with my personal paperwork.
Get creative about how you lay out a table top. My small Celtic drum is now being held upright by a book holder instead of taking up room by lying flat. Some gongs are hanging on the edge of the small bamboo shelf that holds my native flutes rather than taking up space being on top. I’m really into “S” hooks to hang things up. Begin with what is special and important to you and make a place for it and then stop and give yourself time to let go of some of the other things that are around you. Simplicity is soothing. Simplicity is clarifying. Simplicity is nurturing and makes room for expansion. Repurposing what you have and letting go of things is clarifying.
Do you waste time, value time, spend time? How do you use time in your life? Is what you have chosen to do today moving you toward your overarching goals? And objectives? We don’t always have to be striving. We need to set aside time to replenish, time for contemplation, time for accomplishing, and time for nesting in our home. There needs to be a balance. Perhaps keep a time log for a few days and see if you are using time the way you want to. What would you change? I need to find an alternative to sitting. I want to explore audiobooks although I’m naturally a visual learner. What could you add to your life that would encourage you to use your time to create different results?
What One Small Step Will Change The Outcome?
What small change can you make that’s not too challenging but yet asks a little more of you?
Recently I added approximately 15 steps to my morning hall walking in order to press the automatic door opener that opens the door to the outside so I can breathe fresh air. If I kept my key with me I could take some steps outside, but for now my first step is to open the door and enjoy the air as it automatically swings open and shuts again. What small steps can you take that will ask a little more of you without asking too much? Do that.
===DEEPEN YOUR SPIRITUAL PRACTICE===
Self-healing Spiritual Practice and Deepening Awareness of Our Cosmic Oneness
Send Energy Ahead
It’s relatively simple, you can actually send energy ahead to your unfolding situation. I have begun to send energy ahead to my move into assisted living. I have begun to send energy ahead to my cat Sebastian as he needs to go live in another place because he can’t come with me and I can’t stay here. I’m sending energy ahead to what my life will be like. Oh yes, and to my physical plane transition, whenever that takes place. Let the energy figure out what to do. Send energy to help transition whatever you need – let that energy pave the way and show you the path and open new doors to explore. Then pay attention to the signals and examine your new options.
Learn What Is Relevant to Now
I’m going to re-read psychiatrist Michael Newtons books on life between lives that he wrote from past life regression sessions with his clients. It is time for me to re-read them and search for others for that talk about what will be my next big adventure. One of the descriptions I like is that there is no language, everything is just communicated through energy. I can do that. Another is that we get to choose where or if we come back.
What new adventure are you approaching where you can learn from the reporting of those who have gone ahead of you? It might be enlightening to explore that.
===HOW TO BE A STRONG CONTRIBUTING MEMBER OF THE DIVERSE CIRCLE OF LIGHT BEINGS===
Expand Our Role in the Rapidly Evolving Universe
Highest Good for All
Politics in America is a mess and we may have just reached a turning point that is deeply important. The concept of highest good for all must be central. It may not lead you to exactly what you want but it will lead you to a situation or circumstance that enriches the majority of people or the planet. Think about the impact your choices have on your community.
Some of the Republican politicians want to do away with Social Security and Medicare in five years. What do they think will happen to all the 90 year olds and 80 year olds and 70 year olds? Are we all going to be sitting on the street together since we have no way to produce income at that point in our lives. When you make a decision or take an action, give some thought to how far-reaching it is and who exactly will be affected and let that be a core motivator in making your choice.
===BROADEN YOUR HORIZON – EXPAND YOUR VIEW===
Raise Your Sights and Our Expectations
Practice With New Scenarios
I am practicing with a new scenario of ultimately moving into assisted living. I have no idea what the exact time frame will be. I put my application in and there are five people ahead of me. But I know the space is small so my daughter and son-in-law and I are taking stuff out of here. And I am practicing arranging what I plan to keep in a smaller space. It’s good to lighten up by releasing stuff and it’s also a good idea to practice when you know something is going to change. I have some wonderful new royal blue headsets to practice with. I will need help getting them plugged into the computer and phone and the TV.
Get an idea of what’s there when you get there and make adjustments and change things once you arrive. What-if’s are good. It’s a way to try things on for size and for making adjustments in your plans. What are you doing in your life that you might find a better, more efficient, more fun way to do if you were to experiment a little bit? Let go of how you’ve always done things and think of new ways to do it. Everything is always changing. Go exploring and create a new way to do what you want to do next.
===OUR EVOLVING FUTURE===
Support and Encouragement for our Unfolding Role in the Future
I got a 2023 calendar from The Nature Conservatory and it made me pause to wonder what that year will bring for me. I get calendars from conservation groups because I give money to them at this time of year. I like the calendars because I can write on the squares and keep track of my life and look at the wildlife pictures. I’m not going to dwell on next year. I will send some energy ahead so that it unfolds in the most perfect and right manner for me and all will remain well in my world.
===REFLECTIONS OF A DEEPER SONG PODCAST===
Listen to my
Reflections of a Deeper Song Podcast on
I don’t know exactly how much control we have over the unfolding of our lives, but I’d like to have a say in mine. I would like to consider my options and make my own choices. And I would like to envision that new step, that new existence into being. Through my intention. Through my best choices. Through my expectations. So rather than be reactionary to what shows up in front of you, we can do some planning. Make some choices. Release and make room for something new that we want. Take time to pause and contemplate what is important to you and your life and make room for more of that to be present.
===SING A DEEPER SONG ===
We always have a choice. We have a choice to release. We have a choice to create. We have a choice to accept. What do I base my choices on?
We always have a choice. We have a choice to release. We have a choice to create. We have a choice to accept. What do I base my choices on? I pause to look around at what is nurturing me and taking me on spiritual adventures. I want more of that.
We always have a choice. We have a choice to release. We have a choice to create. We have a choice to accept. What do I base my choices on? I pause to look around at what is nurturing me and taking me on spiritual adventures. I want more of that. I raise my sights. I raise my expectations. I stay flexible and stay willing to change. My path widens and I step forth into a new adventure.
