Stop Chasing the Wrong Things

January 23, 2012

… and give the right things a chance to catch up with you.

I can’t take the credit for this one, but I can uniquely define it. In life, it is very common to chase the “wrong” things. We  have a tendency to chase the things we actually do not want in our lives. Why would anyone do that, you may ask? Well, it is rarely ever done consciously, that is for sure. You see, everything in life is energy. Wherever you are putting your thoughts or intentions, that is where your energy goes. Where your energy goes is what you end up “chasing.” It seems to be a complex equation, but a very simple outcome. If you do not want someone or something in your life, do NOT think about them. It is as easy as that. Do not expend your precious energy on manifesting that which does not make you happy.

When you continually mull over a person or situation that has wronged you in the past, you keep your energy locked to that person or situation (for better or worse). When your energy is locked, it is not available to free flow outwards and attract the people and the situations you really do want in your life. It is otherwise occupied. In essence, you end up subconsciously “chasing” after the things you do not want. If you know they are not what you want, it is time to cut your ties to the past which will only ever hold you back and shift your energy forwards. Think ahead, think new, dream big… this will help bring you new situations and encounters that will more realistically match your needs.

Everything is energy. Looking at the past keeps you locked in it – stuck. Break the binds that tie you to the past and stop chasing what you do not want in life. Allow yourself to attract that which you do want and give it a chance to successfully catch up to you. In life we are meant to have everything we have ever wanted, but we subconsciously keep ourselves and our energy pre-occupied with what we do not need in our lives. Life is too short to lament past mistakes and misfortunes. The future, with all your dreams is available at every moment. Seize the day and allow real happiness to catch up with you.

When You Walk With Your Head Down

… you walk into walls. It’s common sense. When you’re not looking where you’re going, you’re most likely going to end up somewhere you don’t want to be. Most of us sleepwalk our way through our lives — running the mouse wheel of life. We are so busy trying to make a living that we […]

It’s Not About Making The Right Choice

… it’s about accepting the choice you’ve already made. Our life’s path is made up of choices and there are no mistakes when it comes to making choices, because there are no right or wrong choices, there are only different choices. Don’t get caught up in the choice you’ve made – make it and move on. […]

Looking Back to the Past

… is only helpful to the extent it allows you to move forward into your future.  If it doesn’t, it keeps you back. Your life is only ever in front of you, never behind you. The past can be an informative tool if we don’t get trapped in it. If you want to uncover the […]

A Mid-life Crisis

… requires a mid-course correction. A mid-life crisis can happen at any age, but the wisdom here is that the secret to healing it, is in the way we define it. Life naturally has its ups and downs, and life is constantly asking you to define who you are in relationship to it. You’re never […]

When You’re in the Flow

… everything moves with you. And when you are not, nothing works. When you are in the flow of your life – flowing downstream — everything flows along side you. When you are out of that flow – pushing upstream — things are much more difficult. How do you know the difference? Ask yourself how […]
