… is the one who keeps coming back.

No one wants to deal with wolves, yet we all continually feeds these vicious, merciless beasts until they overtake us.

The wolves are your emotions — good wolves and bad wolves. Wolves are energetic constructs (emotional states) and they require our thoughts as food to fuel them. Our good wolves are the positive emotions of inspiration, passion, purpose, love and joy, etc.. The bad wolves are the anxiety, fear, anger, depression, and worry, etc..

It’s much easier to feed the bad wolves and think you are keeping yourself safe and away from harm. But it doesn’t work that way. The wolf you feed is the one who keeps coming back for more. If you continually feed negative emotions, those emotions will get bigger and bigger until they swallow you whole.

If you simply stop feeding negative emotions, they have to go somewhere else for fuel.  If you take your energy off the negative emotions, you lessen the chances of getting eaten by the very wolves you were feeding.

It’s the law of attraction — you get what you think about whether you want it or not. The wolf you feed is the one who comes back for more. Ask yourself if you want that wolf in your life? If the answer is no, stop feeding him. When you take your thoughts off the things that upset you, you starve them and marginalize their influence over your life. Hungry wolves don’t hang around very long. When they realize there is no more food, they leave and most likely never come back.

… it’s about exploring all the options.

Life is an experience experiment.

You are not meant to have all the answers, you are meant to explore different dimensions of yourself. If you had all the answers upfront, you would have nothing to experience and therefore no way to evolve. Continually seeking satisfaction continually enables your evolution. 

We get caught up in wanting all the answers. But if you had all the answers it would mean that there was nothing left to seek and no aspects of yourself left to explore. You cannot know where you are going until you are there. Answers come from experience and if you don’t have the answer, you’re not there yet. 

Life isn’t about knowing all the outcomes, it’s about exploring all the options. If you’re looking for answers, stop asking the questions. Live your life and the answers will find you.

… it’s about collaboration.

We’re moving away from separatism and into collectivism. There’s strength in numbers and there’s power in community. If the sum of the whole is always greater than its individual parts, why then are we still operating solo? Why are we struggling individually to achieve creature comforts than could be easily had via cooperation?

There is a reason why indigenous people created community. They knew that if they had each other’s backs that they would naturally be more abundant, more efficient and more fulfilled. It’s a simple but profound concept.

There is a resurgence towards collectivism and community on our planet. It’s not about competition anymore, it’s about collaboration. In your life, how can you work in cooperation with others to create a sum greater than that of its parts? Who can you collaborate with to bring your gifts, talents and interests to life in a much more cohesive and meaningful way? How can you benefit from others’ experience and ideas and they by yours?

In our new world paradigm, our delivery system for success is collaboration and partnership. We’re not competing with each other anymore, we’re learning to work together to create a much better world. Are you in?

… and you’ll keep winning.

Focus on your losses, and you’ll keep losing. 

Everything is energy and where you put your focus, you get more of — whether you want it or not.

These are trying times of transition and when you can focus on the positive of your life amidst any perceived negative, you invite the energy of transformation in. Transformation can only exist within the waveform of positive intention. In other words, you can block the next step of your life just as easily as you can walk into it. 

You always have a choice as to how you view your life. Are you going to allow yourself to feel the victim of your circumstances or are you going to encourage yourself to continue building upon your successes (however small you think they are) and transforming yourself anew — stronger, greater and wiser?

If the story you are telling yourself isn’t working, try telling another one — a greater one. Where do you want your life to go? What is it you want to create? The secret is in understanding that focusing on where you are, keeps you there, but focusing on where you want to be, brings you there. When you’re ready to be a winner in the story of your life, your life will truly become the winning life you’ve dreamed of.

… it’s in learning what that person came to teach you. 

But no one ever teaches us that.

Why do we make it all about the other person? It doesn’t matter what that person does to you or what that person says to you/doesn’t say to you — however unpleasant the circumstances may be. It only matters what you learn from that person and how you make your life BETTER because of them.

We tend to get caught up in the drama-trauma zone of our lives and we become the victims of what others do/say to us. But it can never be about them. Our lives are ABOUT US and if those people are in our lives, we should only be interested in the affect their presence has over us. 

When we learn that no one has control over our lives unless we give it, everything shifts for us. 

Remember in life, it’s never about a person, they are just the relationship villain in place to teach you something about yourself. It’s about what you take away from that person that makes all the difference in the world. Get the lesson and get out; make your life better because they were in it.

… it’s always taking you somewhere else.

Life is an uphill climb and it’s made up of many steps. There is no single step that is ever going to be forever. So why allow yourself to get tripped up over the step you’re on?

You’re never meant to get stuck on a step and you’re never meant to skip steps. Life moves in phases and when you’re finished with one step, it’s time to take the next one. But many of us get disheartened because we are unhappy with the step we’re on. It’s ok to dislike the step you’re on, you’re not meant to be on it forever — just keep climbing — you’re always on your way somewhere else and that step is a necessary evil in getting you there.

… they see you for who THEY are.

People come fully equipped with their own filters through which they are able to perceive you. This means they might not be able to see the REAL YOU, they see a version of you through their own lens.

No need to get upset about the version of you that they see. It is irrelevant. If they are not clearly able to see the truth of themselves, they will never be able to honor the truth within you.

You don’t need to be accepted by people who cannot see themselves. All you can do is be yourself. Put your energy into honoring your truth, not trying to change theirs. People don’t see you for who you are, they only see you for WHO THEY ARE. If you’re not aligned with the vibration they hold, they will NEVER see you; and for you, that’s a good thing. Misalignment is your indication that you are moving up the vibrational scale and they are falling away. Thank them for the clarity.
