Daily Aligning with Love, Abundance, and Peace #200

I’m grateful I have the option to do things differently. Every morning I wake-up and I get to choose how I want to look at the day. My day begins with a perception. I can choose to live in the the same perception as I did the day before, or I can choose to see the day, the hour, and/or the moment differently. This is such an incredible blessing that I think many of us can take for granted unless we are truly paying attention.

I know if I have a nightmare and wake-up with the memory of that nightmare, I start my day aligned in the energy of fear, lack, and separation. My first perception of my day comes from that space. I have to make a conscious choice what to do with that or I go through the day making thought, action, and belief choices that come from that energy. If I wake-up in that space and am consciously aware of where my energy is, I can make different choices. I can choose to do things to get myself out of that energy. These shifts can and will happen throughout the day. The more aware we are, the more options we see.

Knowing I have choices to do things differently in thought, action, response, and feeling is an incredible gift. Today, I’m not taking this beautiful gift for granted. There is no should of, would of, or could of. There is only right now and what I’m going to do in this moment. If I don’t like the results of what I’ve done before, I can make the choice to do things differently. This responsibility is mine and mine alone. I’m accountable for the choices I make moment to moment. To me, that is a beautiful gift.

Today, I commit to considering my options. I woke-up this morning realizing that my energy has been slipping into the energy of fear, lack, and separation more because of where I’ve been focusing my energy in the area of entertainment and gaining knowledge on the human condition. One of the reasons I got to watching the things I did was a concern for my fellow human and trying to understand the why behind a lot of what is going on in the world. Instead of choosing my proven path of studying people, I dove into the media and social media realm and went down the rabbit hole.

My need to see all sides mixed with the horror in just how much the energy of fear, lack, and separation is being consumed and spread was making me have to do even MORE work to stay aligned with love, abundance, and peace. I’m telling you this to make sure you know that I’m human just like everyone who reads what I write. I can be in the energy of love, abundance, and peace or fear, lack, and separation at any moment of my day. I have to come to awakening moments when I see where my energy is based on how I’m feeling and acting. Seeing options is my first step in moving me to make different choices. I ask myself, “Why am I having to work more to align with the energy of love, abundance, and peace?” That is why today, I’m considering my options.

If I’m aligning with love, abundance, and peace:

  • What do my thoughts look like?
  • What do my actions look like?
  • What do my responses to others look like?
  • How does being in this energy make me feel mentally and spiritually?
  • How does being in this energy make me feel physically?

If I’m aligning with fear, lack, and separation:

  • What do my thoughts look like?
  • What do my actions look like?
  • What do my responses to others look like?
  • How does being in this energy make me feel mentally and spiritually?
  • How does being in this energy make me feel physically?

We choose to face every situation from our day in the energy of love, abundance, and peace or fear, lack, and separation. It doesn’t matter what we are facing. People around the world can be facing similar things and CHOOSE different ways of looking at and reacting to the moment. We can see this everywhere we look if we just stop judging someone else for a second and simply observe people are having different reactions. Whatever energy we are aligned with in the moment, we are perceiving the moment from that energy space. We are receiving the information from that energy space. We are reacting to the moment from whatever energy space we are currently in.

Today, I’m looking to see where my options are, not where they are not. The second I tell myself, I don’t have options (CHOICES), my thinking begins spinning in the energy of fear, lack, and separation. I know where this dark spiral goes. I know I will learn from the choices I make from this space, but I also know there is a different way I can learn and grow without having to spiral. I just have to be willing to start making different choices from this moment.

Making the choice to step out of the energy spiral of fear, lack, and separation is not always a choice I will instantly make. Sometimes, I feel depleted if I’ve been sitting in this energy for too long. I logically know what I need to do, but I resist doing the work. That’s OKAY. Sometimes, I need to be the observer. This means I step back enough to look at where I am without beating myself up for being there. This is a great place to just observe my thoughts, behaviors, patterns, feelings, and energy. Once I’ve observed, I can just simply ask myself: How would it look if I changed this one thing?

Being the observer, I think about how the thoughts, behaviors, patterns, feelings, and energy might change and shift. When I sit without judgment, I begin to see options. Sometimes that is enough to help me start taking steps to shift us out of the energy that is depleting me.

With Love, Abundance, and Peace,
