Tired of wishing things were different?
Sick of hoping things will change?
Discouraged by events not happening as you had imagined?
Well I know one simple way to end it all.
I’ve been doing a lot of mindset work lately with a kind and wonderful woman named Therese Skelly. She is a business coach, heck person, like no other I’ve met.
If you, like me, believe in the Law of Attraction, well we are likely babes in the cradle compared to Therese. Therese embodies and imbues the Law as if she wrote it herself. What’s more, she can extract from you deep-set beliefs like you wouldn’t believe and turn them on their head.
We’re complicated creatures, us humans, and it is surprising what makes us tick.
One of Therese’s lessons is to teach you to own your value; something many of us let others bestow upon us (often which are false messages rooted in jealousy, ignorance or fear) and then wear like a suit of armour shielding us from other more realistic heartfelt honest messages.
It was with this lesson that this next message came my way.
While perusing the blogs I follow, a recent post struck my eye; Tracie Louise’s post entitled “Giving Up Hope.”
Concerned, what I read imparted a startling message; her solution to end her turmoil.
Her philosophy, so simple and humble, struck my heart and mended the tapestry of lessons past.
Her message: she is tired of hoping for things to change, for ‘hope’ gives you an ‘out’. I hope this will happen, but if it doesn’t, that’s ok because I can always fall back on blah blah blah.
Instead, she is making the conscious choice to give up ‘hope’ and replace it with ‘Intention’.
Wow. Think about it: Replace ‘Hope’ with ‘Intention’.
Aaaaaaaaaa! Do hear the angel chorus?
That one simple shift: Replace ‘Hope’ with ‘Intention’.
Simply change the way you look at the situation.
“I hope one day to be able to travel to Europe” changes to “I’m going to travel to Europe” and suddenly the planning begins.
How can I afford it? Start socking away bits of cash, get a part-time job, sell un-used items on eBay.
Where will I go? Start the mental planning, pour over maps, google travel deals.
When will I go? Pick a date and write it on your calendar.
By simply making the mental shift, you have opened the door for new possibilities (my new favourite word).
The Law of Attraction is strong, my friend, so be sure your intention is clear.
I’ll bet you’ll be surprised how things start falling into place.
This is so awesome, miracle can happen when we replace I wish, if only, and the kind… with “I will”. Thanks for the reminder!
Fabulous post, and I thank you for the shout out. And ask you know….”when the student is ready, the teacher will appear;.” I’m delighted to be on the path with you Carolin.
That’s one of my favourite quotes/lessons. Thanks for reminding me of it. …I’m ready, and look, there you are! Thanks Therese.
