Be mindful of your self-talk;
it's a conversation with the universe.
As a bevy of blue baby robins gathers outside the window for their early morning fraternizing and the sun streaks boldly in behind our bedroom curtains, the alarm persistently injects itself into our dream. With a heavy sigh we clumsily sit up and place one sleepy foot in a slipper. We begin to search plodingly for the other which has mysteriously slipped away. "Here we go again," we mutter. "Why does my day always start this way?"
Hmmmm. Trouble already...and the day has just begun, "Now what else will go wrong'" we might wonder.
But let's just imagine that same scene of our morning reveille played out with a few significant changes.
As a bevy of blue baby robins gathers outside the window for their early morning fraternizing and the sun streaks boldly in behind our bedroom curtains, the soft sounds of a ballad from our clock radio lead us gently from our dream-state into reality. We take several relaxing breaths, s t r e t c h and slowly sit up, placing one sleepy foot into a slipper. We smile contentedly at its warmth and search curiously for its mischievous mate. "Now where are you hiding today?", we humorously chide. "You guys are always up for a game of hide and seek."
Interestingly, how we choose to greet the day plays a very important role in what happens next for us. Turns out those first moments of the morning send an important message which helps determine what we will find unfolding.
Every thought we think, every feeling we feel, every word we utter is being delivered unfailingly and with distinct ceremony to the watchful and waiting Universe and whether that message is a "grumpy" alert or a ""fun and friendly"vibe, we are calling in our order for more of what we are already portraying so eloquently.
We always get more of what we passionately express, attracting vibes which match that resonance.
The key point here is our passion, those feelings of deep caring and emotion. Are we choosing to invest our energy, to place our attention on what feels like it is not working well as compared to affirming the beauty and joy surrounding us?
And do we "see" what we expect to see because we have experienced it so many times before because of our mind-set? And, if that is so, what kind of expectations do we hold? Bruce Lipton, developmental biologist, tells us what we believe is what we will experience.
So the question is what, exactly, is our Biology of Belief? Are we choosing to emphasize, believe in, affirm what feels like dissonance, ignoring symmetry and beauty? Has this choice become the author of everything we experience?
What if we "expected" delight...mischief...fun...beauty? Would we find it?
Perhaps the robins outside our window are waiting for us to join The Chorus Line.
