Here is an amazing YouTube link to Esther Hicks speaking as Abraham on the “magic of childhood,” and how you can use it to get what you want out of life 🙂 ;

  Worry, fear, and doubt are not only detrimental to good health; they are also detrimental to the achievement of your life goals. Don’t forget that play is a very important component in personal growth and development, as well as your own fulfillment. Every individual human soul can sense the direction that they are most inclined, as inspiration or even flashes of insight will nudge them towards certain activities over others.
   It will be easier and more delightful to move and grow in certain directions over others. By looking at your own life, you can quite easily discern, or if you will, perceive in what area your abilities may lie. This is done by following the shape of your own impulses and inclinations.
  You cannot learn about yourself by studying what is expected of you by others – rather, it is done by asking yourself what you expect of yourself, and determining in what direction your abilities lie.
  Your beliefs are that which you form your life around. Beliefs are the strong ideas you hold within you about the nature of reality; they are reinforced by your imagination and emotions in various ways. And, since it is your beliefs that help bring about the reality that you will find yourself experiencing in life, then give some thought to the following:
   In the same way that a child will play at being an adult long before becoming one, you too can play with beliefs that are more desirable while you grow into that more beneficial picture. To start over or to change one’s beliefs about what is possible and what is not, is a very bold endeavor or task. Do not quit or give up just because sometimes you may become discouraged or disillusioned during the process.
   Do not be hard on yourself if whatever you attempt fails, because sometimes things you will attempt are actually doomed to fail. One reason for this is that there are times where you must first create the conditions from which your most successful creations will emerge.
  You are always in a state of becoming, because you are learning the art of self-actualization. You will draw to yourself in life, those very qualities upon which you choose to concentrate your attention. Remember that in negative situations in life, it is more your own emotions and perceptions that are the issue, and not the circumstances that seem to bring these things about.
  The experiences of your life are not thrust upon you by any outside force or agency. Instead, they are formed faithfully according to your own emotions and beliefs. Sometimes in life, knowing which direction is not you, is as good as knowing which direction is you. All experiences can and will be used by you to your eventual advantage during your lifetime and “beyond.”
  It is simply not possible to choose not doing something with your life. For example, a choice to stay home in bed and not do anything is still a choice to do just that. It is your choices that bring about the experiences you will have in your life.
  If the experiences you find yourself in are unsatisfactory, realize that it was choice that got you where you are, and it is choice that will get you out. To feel overwhelmed or burdened by choice does not serve you well; for it is choice that is the solution to your problems.
   To be most satisfied (and successful) with whatever is chosen to be focused upon in your life, it almost becomes necessary for you to try to become more aware of the beliefs that you do hold within your own psychological make-up.
  For instance, some people are highly motivated or creatively driven to achieve or accomplish something in their life, while at the same time, more or less, they also believe that it is not good to make themselves too exposed,  known, or to draw attention to themselves excessively. Therefore, to express their abilities or ideas is not encouraged. In these cases, the individual is operating at cross-purposes with themselves, and this can manifest in many different ways, not so good; all the while wondering why their life is dissatisfactory.
   Sometimes the beliefs that one holds are not perceived as being about reality, but rather, as being actual conditions of reality. The realization of this distinction is of great use in helping to achieve self-actualization during the lifetime.
  When the mind begins to realize the directing influence it has upon the experiences in the life, amazing and beneficial changes can start to occur. Does this suggest anything to you?

Enjoy the changes coming into your life,

Greetings Everyone!

There are those in life who wish or desire for things to be different in a better way.  These particular individuals know very clearly the limitations or dissatisfactions of the reality they face every single day of their lives.

What these same individuals are often not aware of is that what they see as “reality,” is actually something which has come about because of their own creation, over time, “directed” by the ideas they have within their own psychological and emotional makeup. Day by day, small seemingly insignificant choices “build up over time” into the experiences they now perceive as reality.     

Try as one might, often you would never convince them that their “beliefs about reality” are actually playing a very significant role in helping cause that reality they perceive. Until this basic concept can be accepted, then they are forever at the mercy of their life’s experiences happening to them of their own accord. They think reality is first, and then their ideas come second; to change this is the key.

Change does not come about “overnight.” It is a gradual process over time which grows you to the reality you will “now experience.” Your reality also involves the reality of others around you, so you are not alone in this creation; except for your “personal version” of it.

Until one can consider the possibility of “the ideas coming first” and then “the experiences follow,” they will continue to perceive and interpret a reality which exists independent of their personal involvement.

Even as one makes changes to the ideas which they hold to be true, the “old life” will take time to change into the “new life.” Also, where there is “overlap” between the two, disorientation can occur; however, stay the course, for in time the “wisdom” in your life changes will begin to show themselves. As the mind becomes more aware of its “directing influence” upon your life, amazing things can occur.

To grow one’s ideas of changing their life for the better, is to “remove the security blanket” of their old established life. When one steps outside of their “comfort zone,” it does indeed stretch them developmentally; and this is not a comfortable place to be. However, we all know the wisdom in growing and developing a human being beyond its “childhood.” In many ways, this is no different for the “seasoned life veteran.”

When one is absolutely convinced that their present life reality is “all there is,” then know that you are looking at one who is not working with the basic nature of their being; how this can “play out” is as varied as there are souls on our planet.  However, it is clear that until these individuals choose to change their thinking, they will then slowly begin the process of a life “which becomes less and less over time.”

It does not have to be this way. Be kind to yourself and to others as you choose every single day to do something to grow yourself developmentally; no matter how small or insignificant. Find a reason to feel good and deserving of good changes to come into your life over time; it is your “birth right.”

The greatest thing you can do with your life is to share it with others. You came here to this lifetime you know as your own, to find a way to express the gifts you have within you; when you do this, you will not only feel good, you will be rewarded, and you will making the world a better place to live in for us all.

What is it about you that is special? If you do not know, find it out; it is within you. Find a way to start developing this method of your expression. Over time, the wisdom of all this will become increasingly clearer to you. The world is waiting and in need of what you have within you to share; what does it take to get this message through to you???
