A while ago, a friend divulged to me how he had been dreading going to work. The CEO of the company announced he was going to make a major announcement, and my friend feared the worst.
“I’m so stressed about what’s going to happen,” he told me.
“What do you think is going to happen?” I asked him.
“I don’t know. But I think it’s going to be really bad,” he bemoaned.
After a few sleepless nights, my friend went to the meeting to hear the news.
What he feared never showed up. The CEO joyously revealed that the company was doing very well. In fact, their operations were expanding. Every employee was going to receive a surprise bonus.
When I asked my client how he felt after hearing the news, he said to me, “I was really surprised. I wasn’t expecting this. I’m so used to hearing how bad things are. I can’t believe all the energy I wasted these last few days worrying about this.”
At any moment, life is happening. How you interpret it, whether positively or negatively, is based on how you choose to see it.
The thing is, you may not be aware that your perspectives are based on years of habit.
Do you believe you live in a friendly Universe? Or do you believe that you live in a Universe where you have to be guarded all the time?
These are two different sets of beliefs, with two different pathways. What you believe affects how you live your life, how you treat others, how you show up with work, and how you approach relationships.
How do you want to live your life? What do you want to believe about your life and the Universe you live in?
Are you open to the idea that the Universe is conspiring to support you?
Believing that you live in a friendly Universe means that you’re not alone.
It means that when you say yes to your heart, the Universe starts working “behind the scenes” and sets a new cause into motion.
Sometimes this means people or unexpected good suddenly “showing up” in your life. Sometimes it means inspired ideas come to you when you need it.
When you open to the idea that the Universe is conspiring to support you, you become more aware that what shows up in your life is not accidental or coincidence.
You open to possibilities you might not have imagined. And your whole life becomes an affirmation of this belief.
In truth, the Universe supports you because you’re not separate from it. You’re One in it and it is One in you.
That means the Love, Wisdom, Joy, Beauty, Prosperity, Power, Abundance, Harmony and Peace that is the nature and essence of the Universe is your nature and essence as well.
You and the Universe are Divine Creative Energy, always seeking to express more fully. All you have to do is give this energy direction and focus.
Wherever you decide to give energy, focus and direction, the Universal Presence always says “Yes.”
So when you believe you live in a friendly Universe, the answer is “Yes.” And when you believe you have to be guarded all the time, the answer is “Yes.”
Henry Ford stated it succinctly, “Whether you think you can, or think you can’t, you’re right.”
For your coaching assignment for the week, I invite you to contemplate these questions:
- What is one area of your life where you’d like to believe a little bit more that you live in a friendly Universe?
- Open to the idea that the Universe supports you and that the answer to what you want is “Yes.”
- Cultivate an atmosphere of joyous possibility. Do something simple that gets you into this feeling space.
- Be conscious this week of how this Universal support shows up. It can show up as an inspired idea, a friend mentioning something to you, a book coming your way, or an infinite number of other ways.
I saw a bumper sticker that said, “Expect Miracles.” Now that is an idea rooted firmly in the belief that the Universe is conspiring to support you.
Abundant Blessings and Namaste.
