What have santa, the tooth fairy and your world, as you know it, all got in common?

What a ridiculous question……. Or is it?

Remember when you were a kid and you believed in Santa and the tooth fairy?

And then you got bigger you realised they were made up stories that the adults had told you.

What if, the world as you know it, is kinda like the Santa and the tooth fairy story?Optical Illusion

I know, I know – sounds a bit crazy.

Ok, let me say it another way………

What if many of the things that you believe to be true actually aren’t?

What if they are only true, because somewhere along the line you bought into them as true, and so made them true in your world?

And what if, it’s only your experience of them that reinforces your belief that they are true?

So……. what comes first the thought or the experience?

It is always the thought. It is the thought that gives you the experience.

Scientists say that this universe that looks solid is in fact 99.9% space….A curious fact indeed.

So could it be possible that things may not always be quite as they appear?

The things about beliefs is they are sneaky wee things. And not always so easy to see.

And the other thing we can be rather brilliant at is judging ourselves.

So, what if, instead of judging yourself for all the things you feel you aren’t doing ‘right’ you could be kind to yourself?

Knowing that you created what you could, with what you knew at the time, and that now you can choose something different because you know something different?

So here’s my playful question.

If you landed on planet earth today and you didn’t understand anything about conformity or judgement or the ‘rules’ of this reality – what would you create as your life?

I dare you to begin to dream, because it is in the dreaming that things have been created that were previously thought impossible.

In this reality something is true until proven otherwise. A really simple example of this is Roger Bannister breaking the 4 minute mile. The belief was that it couldn’t be done – until it was. Just saying. Roger Bannister had a different thought.

As Ralph Waldo Emerson said, ‘You wouldn’t have the desire if your didn’t have the ability to achieve it’

What an awesome quote!!!!

What stops you from having the things you want?  Yip, these hidden things you have unconsciously or consciously chosen as true.

So, what if you have more ability than you have ever dared to believe?

What if you just haven’t tapped into it yet??

What if different thoughts could begin to create a different experience?

It couldn’t be that simple could it? Now I didn’t say easy, I just said simple.

Unless of course this is you…….

Alice came to a fork in the road.

‘Which road do I take?’ she asked.

‘Where do you want to go?’ responded the Cheshire Cat.

‘I don’t know,’ Alice answered.

‘Then,’ said the Cat, ‘it doesn’t matter.” Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland.

Are you like Alice or do you want something different?

You’re in charge of you. Don’t like what you see. Change it.

Baby steps.

Point yourself in the direction and go.

You can do it.

I don’t care how much you say you can’t.

If you truly want to change you will.

Don’t just take my word for it though.

Pick one area of your life and take two minutes and write down everything you ‘know’ (believe) about it. Keep writing and asking yourself ok what else, what else? and just be curious about what you write – so how much of what you believe is showing up in your life?

What you believe you create. Which only matters if you want to consciously create your life.

So how can you begin to make change?

Do something different. Without expectation. Drop judgement.

What if you were like an explorer in your own life, instead of deciding how it was going to be before the experience?

What if, in the deciding how it is going to be that you are actually helping create the limitation.
