It’s not for me to know why someone else does what they do. I can only take care of me and my journey in life. I just know that if we would all pay attention to the coincidences of our own journeys we would realize our true path and see that it’s okay to switch tracks to re-invent ourselves. This is what I’ve come to realize about my journey, I have learned to trust my gut feelings. These deep feelings are there for a reason. It is our higher selves or the Universe or God or whoever you feel is out there helping you, trying to communicate with us. There are always signs that go along with the feelings that can show you the way to go, but you need to really pay attention. When I say be intentional. I mean to really know what it is you want in this life. Once you make it clear to your higher self etc. you will start attracting the things and people that will help you get there. It’s not always going to be the way you think it will be so you need to stay aware. For example I have always said that one day I was going to have a big house where lots of different people could come and stay and work on their own talents. But one day I realized that even though I don’t have the big house YET, I always have people living with me that eventually find their true path and then move on to a happier life. It is very easy to be on the wrong path if you are not awake. You’ll know when you are going astray. When you’re going back to the feelings, where you don’t feel secure or safe or perfect or good.
When I first started on my own new journey I was doing all the right things like my vision board, mantras, positive quotes, and thinking and talking differently. But I didn’t feel like it was all happening fast enough. What I came to realize was that I wasn’t feeling it deeply enough. I was feeling it but not down deep in my gut. Then one day a switch flipped in my head and I got it. I started seeing that everything that had happened up until now was happening by design, my design. I was calling everything into my life that I needed to help me learn the lessons I needed to learn to become the best me ever. It comes down to, seeing is not believing, but believing is seeing. So once we intend something, which is like asking for it, we must believe that it is ours already, and then stay alert and receive it when it comes with gratitude and joy. Another example of this in my life was when I had just gotten my washer fixed and my refrigerator was going bad, so I simply stated, as if it were already a fact, as if I had already received it, without a doubt that it was mine already, that the next thing I was going to get was a side by side refrigerator. 2 days later my roommate told me that his parents had just sold their rental house, that just happened to be very near to us, and they had a refrigerator there and we could have it if we wanted it. Of course I did. It was a white side by side and it was huge compared to my dinky frig. See, I never said the words, “buy” or “new”. I just said side by side refrigerator. But seriously being specific is very helpful. I also said one night that I wished someone would come to my door with a big bag of candy and they did, but it was hard candy and I really wanted chocolate. I should have been more specific. It is the attitude and conviction that you ask for things which brings it faster and faster. And the more you see the results and believe that it is because you intended it, and for no other reason, the quicker it will manifest for you.
Now besides being intentional you must also fill yourself with love, and I mean true love which starts from within and radiates out to the Universe, to everyone and everything, and this includes our enemies. It is especially important to send love to enemies because when we hate it, just gets bigger. When we love it does the same thing, it gets bigger.
I am sure that there are some people that think there is only one way to get into heaven, but I think that there are many ways to do everything so why not heaven. When we over flow ourselves with love it has to go out and effect everyone else and then come back to us full force. Just think if everyone on earth did this, we would make living on earth as close to heaven as we could get before actually getting there. And feeling this good could only mean one thing and that is that you have to be on your right path. This is when we feel most alive and free of worry, hate, regret, negative thinking and speaking, and anything else that makes us feel bad and ugly inside.
The way I see it is that the Universe is this giant machine that runs perfectly managed by God, who has purposefully put us here on this earth to love one another. If we can do this we will be able to find the inner peace that we all seek. I know there are people that do bad things but I feel that it comes from a lack of love, and knowledge. People need to be educated about this and shown by example, as Martin Luther King Jr. showed. Even though he knew that there were people that didn’t agree with him, he still kept going. The same can be said for Jesus I suppose. He was kind and loved everyone and everything even though he knew that the rulers of the day wanted to destroy everything he stood for. But he stayed true to his self and everyone else no matter what the consequences might be. The people that do the bad things are throwing a wrench into the works so to speak. But this can be stopped if all the good people start sharing their love with the Universe to spread it far and wide and to bring the harmony that we all want and need.
I feel that if we all intend for love to rule the world then it will. We need to create love circles like prayer chains. Like hands across America did only all the time not just once. That is my wish, to intentionally create a love filled Universe, so that we can all be on our right path and just be happy and filled with joy at all times. But it all starts on the inside of each and every one of us. So do yourself and everyone else a favor and look yourself in the eye in the mirror and tell yourself that you love you. It is a good place to start.
With all my love, Deb Mertan
