Living in the fog?
Oct 27, 2013 / 5:00 am
The fog started early this year. We live in a beautiful gem of a place and every fall and winter a layer of cloud and fog can descend upon the residents. It's a result of a temperature inversion and other cool meteorological events.
What I always find fascinating is that it can feel so blah and heavy yet the bright light of the sun is really close. Sometimes the sun can peak through a thin spot and tease us with the hope of a sunshiny day and some warmth.
Here's the thing, the sun is always there (well, except at night for you smart alecs who were thinking that - lol). It's always there. On the other side of the clouds (or on the other side of the world). Always. Always.
What if you could look at your life like that? What if the sun in this instance represents the great life that you want? The possibility of it is always there. Always. Always.
Every day, there is a new possibility. Heck, every moment there is a new possibility.
Right now, a heavy fog is rolling past my window - yet off in the near distance I can see a patch of forest that's sunlit. If I look the other way - the forest is socked in.
How easy is it to get bogged down in the fog? We can look outside and think 'what a dreary day'. And, if I only chose to look out one way - I'd never see the light. The promise of heat. We get sucked in to the negative thought of the dreariness that fog seems to bring. We block ourselves off from thinking different thoughts about it. The predominant story that is created is that fog is heavy and dreary and sometimes dangerous. (Yes, I am aware that some people don't share this story.)
That's what we do in our life. We create a story that things aren't going well (we're stuck in a thick fog) and because we can't see a way out of it - it becomes our reality. If we keep our focus on our reality as it is in this moment - the way the Universe works is that it replicates the energy of the story we're putting out. Therefore, we keep getting the same unwanted results (fog) over and over again. We forget that an abundance of what we want exists - it's always there - just like the sun on the other side of the fog.
Abraham-Hicks is famous for saying, 'the better it gets, the better it gets and the worse it gets, the worse it gets.' And, it's true because of the energy of focus that we have keeps recreating 'good' or 'bad'.
How do we change it? Change your story. Clear it out. Change your energy and focus and you'll start getting clues or awarenesses that what you want DOES exist and it's very close. When you pay attention to those awarenesses that come up, you'll be inspired just as we are when we see those glimpses of sunlight as it breaks through the fog.
You changing your story is like that little thin area in the cloud where the sun can break through to the ground and start warming it up. Clearing out your old story and changing your energy and focus is like the ground warming up - which then breaks up the fog even more so more and more sunlight can stream through and warm up more ground which vaporizes the fog completely.
Soon you have bright blue skies and anything seems possible.
Remember, what you want is always there. You just have a story (or belief, or point of view, or conclusion) that is blocking you from having everything you desire.
How cool will it be for you to start creating the work and life you deserve?
Best of everything to you!
