Discovering new ways to view the world is life changing, our perception and beliefs create our world. The quote by Charles Swindoll sums things up perfectly: Life is 10% of what happens to you and 90% of how YOU react and my goodness, this keeps coming up for my lovely clients. The actions, thoughts and feelings of others can come across, or appear, so differently than what the person actually meant. If we take a step back and truly look at a situation and the behaviour of others, then we can get a better understanding of ourselves and the world around us. Once you start to review your overall perception, then you can start to relax and change your own thoughts and feelings to raise your personal vibration. We get into a worry 'hamster wheel' that can see us over stress about people, situations and actions, worry does not change the outcome so let's STOP doing it now. On a personal level, we can make sure we come across clearly, that we know what we mean, and if others continue to misconstrue us then that is due to their perception. This is not our fault, it is beyond our control and their thoughts are their choice.
If we feel triggered by the behaviour and reactions of others then we need to work out why this has happened and investigate what we need to heal. It can be caused by trauma or by bad habitual thinking that we learned as life's experiences unfolded. Some ideas for addressing the 'why' can be:
Why did that make me feel angry / happy / sad / anxious?
Did the other person really mean how you took their words?
Is your reaction due to your insecurities, our own anxieties or past hurts or fear about something else, completely unconnected?
Do you truly love and believe in yourself enough that you are able to look at the behaviour of others objectively and not from a 'victim' mentality?
We are all amazing, have all been on our own journeys and you never quite know what another has been through. No judgement is a powerful tool and one that we need to harness daily. Reiki, meditation or walks in nature can help you to see what needs to be healed from within. Reviewing our own thoughts, actions and perceptions can only be of bonus to us, once we have worked on them.
"With everything that has happened to you, you can either feel sorry for yourself or treat what has happened as a gift. Everything is either an opportunity to grow or an obstacle to keep you from growing. You get to choose." Wayne Dyer
Now is the perfect time for releasing and changing thoughts, habits and old beliefs that we hold onto. Removing stress, worry and fear allows your mind, body and soul to heal and thrive, no matter what you encounter. Everything happens as it should, now you are exactly where you are supposed to be at this time and be aware of all you can learn from experiences.
One key chakra that need working on to help your journey is the Solar Plexus, allowing you to release any blockages and emotions that are preventing you moving forwards. For those who work with the angelic realm then Archangel Raziel is amazing for the process of renewing your perception. Raziel is the keeper of the supreme knowledge of the soul and the guardian angel of illumination. Something else to remember is: Listen because you want to hear what others are saying not to respond with your experiences, your opinion. Learning to fully listen to others really can change your world.
Manage your perceptions, relearn new thought patterns and your daily adventures will be more enjoyable, with ease. Have a stunning week.
