Where do I even begin?
Everything around you is moving, changing, and shifting. It may not seem like it, but it really is. When it comes down to it, we are roaming around in a living, breathing world. When we stop looking at the world as something static and start seeing just how dynamic everything is, things begin to change.
In fact, they change drastically.
As much as we may try to deny this fact, we act like magnets a lot of the time.
We tune into situations wavelengths, pick up on other people’s energies, get drained or revived by those around us and get eerie chills up our backs when something doesn’t sit with us right.
Energy. Vibrations. Frequencies.
These things are all real. Even more, they are incredibly powerful.
There are a lot of things we can’t see. Does that mean they don’t exist? Absolutely not.
I think history has proven time and time again that just because we cannot see it or accurately compute it, it doesn’t mean that it can’t exist. The fact that we bent metal, put wings on it, stuck people in an all-not-so-spacious cabin and sent it into the sky…well, that’s pretty darn amazing in the first place. Send that innovation back a few hundred years and you would probably break everyones minds. They couldn’t see it then, but we can see it now.
When you start playing around with this concept in life though, that’s when things start to get pretty interesting. Sometimes situations or events seem a bit beyond coincidence. Isn’t it possible that it is beyond simple coincidence? Could you be putting off a completely different vibe that brought forth a very different set of results than you are used to? I would venture to say that the answer would be yes in most cases.
Because if there is anything I actually understand about how life works, it’s that if you change your view, you will change your actions and you will receive different results.
What if you view the world in a completely different way – as a place full of energy that can be tapped into instead of a place where we just exist? What if you really started to focus your energies on bringing good people and love into your life and then did the things that corresponded with those vibrations? Couldn’t your entire world change?
I’m not trying to make a sales pitch here, all I’m really doing is giving you a perspective to consider.
There are endless possibilities in this life, we just need to be open to them. Once we stop projecting our own shallow-minded ideas onto the future and give ourselves the opportunity to just be blown away by what life itself can offer, we start entering into a much more fulfilling way of traveling through life.
If we can stop rowing to that island of “where it all turns out” and just hangout in the boat for a while, even if we aren’t rowing anywhere at all, we would all be a lot happier and exponentially more present to what is going on around us.
It’s interesting for me to watch people come to the realization that most of what they have always searched for was already within them. Often times, the “true self” is the last place we actually look to find out who we really are because we know there’s dirty work to be done. We have to dive into the hard times, spend time healing, spend time working with our nasty thoughts and emotions…but in the end we actually open ourselves up to creating depth and happiness. It’s much easier to tack on skills and new talents learned from books than it is to do the hard work. We can digest book after book giving us tips and tricks, simply putting more oars in the water on our trip to the place where it all turns out, and yet never get there – because that island doesn’t exist.
It’s already in you. You are already it.
Those vibrations you feel about wanting to become something or someone, in most cases, exist in you because they are you.
Now I am not discounting the fact that a lot of work needs to be done to develop and deepen yourself. But what I am saying is that those energies that you feel already, they are here now and may not necessarily be there in the future you are so desperately trying to get to.
No, you have to realize that you can be those things you feel deeply right now. That’s why they are calling you in the first place. If you decide to take on those vibrations and begin to live in the present, worlds change and mountains can move.
When you experience it for yourself, it’s beautiful. But when you help another find this moment…now that’s magic.
