Madonna got it right all those years ago when she sang that we are living in a material world. I’m not an especially ‘material girl’ and yet I can look back to my later twenties and early thirties when I had myself convinced that if only I had…
- That car
- That house in that neighbourhood
- That job
- That dress, etc, etc…
then and only then would I be completely happy and satisfied. And then…
I got some of the things I desired and guess what, I still wasn’t happy.
Everyone knows happiness comes from within and what I’m discovering is that it’s a lifelong process to build the deep sense of self-love and trust in life necessary to truly live it in every moment.
We can be distracted from living our true and natural expression in the world when we think we need something outside of ourselves to be complete. And that includes other people. The trick is to be less attached to all of it and realise that we are always making progress towards a better life. That’s just how we’re designed. Here’s some wisdom I’ve picked up along the way and I’ve shared with many of my beautiful clients:
“Just when you’re feeling like everything in your life is truly crappy and you feel you’ve really messed it up. When you feel you’re in the wrong relationship, wrong job, that you’re the worst mother ever or that you’ve not made any progress in your personal growth at all….Celebrate! Yes, that’s right, celebrate because everything you’ve been asking for (provided you’ve been asking) is about to begin flowing your way.”
Honestly, I’ve experienced this time and time again in my own life and I’ve heard many a client say it’s been their experience too.
The night is darkest before the dawn (old proverb)
It seems that just before we shift, life hands us all we’ve been labeling as wrong, substandard, flawed or broken in our lives in an exaggerated, soap opera-style series of happenings as if to give us one final look before we let it all go.
The key to capitalising from these endings when they show up is to acknowledge them as such and not feel attached to how they make you feel. To be able to step back and view the upset from an objective stand-point is a sure sign you’re ready for something different.
When it comes to the material things we would like to have in our lives, because yes, it’s okay to want stuff, the same process applies. The moment we give up on getting something we’ve been dreaming of and let it go, or simply hold the perspective in all matters that all we need and want flows to us effortlessly, it often comes to fruition with very little effort.
The point I’m trying to pull together here is that it’s all one energy and all one outcome. Whether it’s money, love, a home, a new pair of runners, a career you love or a healthy body. It’s all in your reach once you release the need to focus on what is wrong or what is missing in your life.
That’s it, it’s that simple.
