Repeating Cycles

Repeating Cycles… doesn’t help create new ones.

We are creatures of habit by nature. We find comfort in the repetition of our lives. But repetition doesn’t invite growth. Change does. After all, repetition means “you have already been there or done that.”

When we repeat situations and lessons in our lives, it’s because we have NOT yet gotten it. The message should be loud and clear - you are not seeing something that is right in front of you. You are unable to discern what is really going on – usually because you are too close to the situation to see it objectively. When that happens and you see yourself repeating situations over and over and over again, it is time to take a step back from the situation to gain some clarity.

When we lose objectivity, we lose our ability to see ourselves clearly. When you can no longer see what is right in front of you, take a time out. Do something different – take a trip, go on a retreat, shake it up. Break the pattern of unconsciousness so that you can gain some semblance of consciousness. Once you can do that, everything changes. Shake yourself out of the complacency of repeating your unconscious cycles and give yourself a chance to move forward in your life. Happiness awaits when you gain the clarity to see that it will no longer will be found in the repetition of a cycle, but in the experience of a new one.

images… It’s always about the WHY.

In life we get caught up in the daily drama of WHAT is happening to us – “Who did what to us? Who said what to us, etc…”. We get sucked into the drama and it’s subsequent villains and tragedies. We make “what is happening to us” our story, when in reality it’s NOT our story at all.

To truly understand your story, you must learn to look past “WHAT is happening to you” and look at “WHY it is happening to you.” Inherent in every “what” is always a “why”. In other words, what life lesson is showing up in your life right now and what does it have to teach you? Don’t shoot the messenger, the “what” is just the delivery system for the “why.” Every time we fail to get the “why” another “what” shows up to give us yet another chance to figure it out.

So don’t get hung up on all the “whats”, looked past them to find the pattern of “why”. Once you get the lesson, it stops and life becomes happier and easier. Are you ready to see your life more clearly? When you learn to ask “why”, the “whats” no longer have any control over you. It is only then that you find more meaning in your life then ever before. What are you waiting for?

Unknown

.. is the ONLY way to succeed in life.

You have a choice everyday as to whether you will allow yourself to get tripped up on the stumbling blocks OR whether you will use them as stepping stones to a new and better future.

As human beings, it’s common behavior to let the stumbling blocks in our lives take us down and destroy us. We get caught up in the drama of the stumbling block and forget that it is our responsibility to get back up and make our lives better because of what we have experienced. We sit there for months/years blaming the stumbling block for throwing us off course. And what does that do for us? How does that help us or make things better for us? It doesn’t.

No stumbling block is in place to make a mess of your life, it is only in place to help you become stronger, more sound and more stable in yourself.  Stumbling blocks can also be in place to alter your direction in life when it’s time to go down a new road. Regardless, stumbling blocks are ALWAYS the impetus for great change and success. They should never be viewed as obstacles along our path. Once we learn how to turn those stumbling blocks into stepping stones, we realize that we can now rise higher then we ever thought possible. Time to start stumbling!

images… you’re only a victim of your CHOICES.

So if you are unhappy with any area of your life, MAKE ANOTHER CHOICE.  It’s as simple as that.

We get stuck in negative patterns where we think that we are being held back from success or abundance or held back from love or we feel stuck and treated unfairly in our lives when in reality we are just reaping the ramifications of our own choices. 

No one is making you do anything.

No one is keeping you somewhere you do not want to be.

No one is making life difficult for you, but YOU.

If you choose to give your power over to anyone or to any situation to allow yourself to feel broken and disempowered then realize that that is a CHOICE. No one has any power over you unless you give it to them. You have a choice everyday as to how you are going to show up in life and what kind of day you are going to make of it. Remember the quality of your life is in direct response to the choices you make. If you want a better life, seek ways to improve upon your circumstances. Make different choices than the ones that have led you to where you are.

Life is too short to bemoan your fate and accept less than desirable outcomes. It is up to you to recognize that the way you have conducted your life thus far is not working for you and be open enough to bring about the change you truly want and deserve.  Are you ready to make another choice? The rest of your life is contingent on it.

images… so you can proceed with caution.

Not everything in our lives is meant to happen instantaneously. Some situations take time to cultivate. But in our society we are so trained in instant gratification that when things don’t go according to our plan, we get frustrated and anxious and impatient and try to force situations to come about unnaturally.

It is important to note that on our planet everything works on its own timeline and NOTHING can be rushed. The universe maintains perfect time management in terms of bringing you the situations you need, exactly when you need them. There is no room for negotiation here. As we know, things happen for a reason and they happen when they are supposed to.

So, why is it that we encounter speed bumps in our lives? Why doesn’t everything happen when we want it to? The answer is easy. When you hit a speed bump, it is an enforced period of reflection & analyses where you are being asked to proceed forward with caution. In essence, you are being held back from what you think you want/need and are being asked to evaluate the situation and your role within it. Are you sure you are ready to go there? Do you have all the tools you need in place to manage that next step? Is this opportunity truly going to meet your needs? Have you considered other possibilities? These are all reasons why we hit speed bumps – it is a built-in process to protect us from jumping into situations that might NOT be right for us.

The road ahead is always uncertain, but you can be certain that when you hit a speed bump, you are being asked to slow down and process the direction you are heading. If the path ahead was clear for you, you wouldn’t hit a speed bump. Heed the warning and use the time to evaluate what’s ahead of you. You might decide you don’t even want to be on that road. Speed bumps are the disruptions that bring ultimate clarity.

images… helps you to move forward into your future.

We are always meant to move forward in our lives and not spend time looking backwards. But many of us get stuck looking back at the past. We relive it over and over again keeping ourselves in a viscous cycle of stagnancy.

The only way to move forward in your life is to acknowledge your past – get the lesson from it – and get out of it. By continuing to look back and play the blame game, we never grow into the beings we were meant to. We keep ourselves back.

Your past is your past for a reason. It has set the foundation for you to become who you are today. But if you are unwilling to acknowledge the challenges that were set up for you to specifically overcome, you might instead see yourself as the victim – and victims tend to look back at their past with regret, anger and resentment.

You are NEVER a victim of your life. No matter what you tell yourself, your past is your past for a reason. Your circumstances (no matter how dire they may be) are your catalyst for growth. The degree to which you will evolve in this life is contingent on the degree to which you allow yourself to learn from your past and subsequently make changes so that your future is brighter.

Looking backwards will only keep you stuck in a cycle of pain, remorse, anger and resentment. Your work is to find meaning in your past and shut it down – once and for all. Once you have found the meaning (the lesson), your future will always be brighter. The universe rewards those who move forward in their lives. Those who look back will continue to live the painful past they are focusing on. After all, you can’t start the next chapter of your life if you are still re-reading the last one.

Believe in you… as long as YOU believe in you.

When it comes to living your life, YOU are the authority. Never give your power over to anyone else to make you feel badly about yourself.

No one has control over your life unless you give it to them. If you give your power over to other people to prioritize their judgments/ opinions of you, then you lose yourself. You have no one but yourself to blame if you choose to buy into other’s opinions over your own. It is always a choice.

No one’s judgments or opinions should matter to you unless they support your view of yourself. If they do not, they should be kindly disregarded. Don’t waste your time feeling insulted, misunderstood or slighted. It is not worth your energy. Every time you choose to put your energy there, you take it away from building the beautiful being that you are and/or want to become.

It’s your life and your path to walk every day. Those people will always come and go into your life, but you will be the one left standing and upholding their judgments/opinions long after they’ve left. So ask yourself if that is what you want to be doing. Make a better life for yourself and decide today that you will only accept perceptions that are authentic to you and which support your positive growth. If those perceptions do not, throw them out and replace them with more suitable options.

The only thing we have in life are our choices. Learn to choose wisely and not give your power over to anyone else to malign you or take you down. Life is too short to play out other people’s perceptions of you. Time to live your own.
