Have you ever wonder how changing your mind can change your life? Before I answer, let me share the pivotal moment in changing my life.
Due, in part to the fire that took our home last Labor Day, I’ve experienced a bit of confusion on where I want to go with my life, my business(es), and my ‘calling’. Since the COVID restrictions began a year ago, my business consulting/coaching dropped to nearly nothing. I blogged, wrote digital guides for 12 years! And after the fire destroyed products from our product-based business and my computer files, I needed to regroup to figure out what to do next.
My heart just wasn’t in writing my business blog and article any longer, even though that business had previously been my biggest moneymaker.
A friend prompted me to think about what I truly wanted and loved. It wasn’t my 12-year-old business. So I decided it was time to end it and pursue what I really loved: Webwork and working as a Spiritual Coach/Teacher. So, I prayed and put that intention in my mind, heart, and spirit.
Over the next weeks, opportunities opened for me to receive special online teacher training and coaching with my Centers for Spiritual Living connections. Also, I applied for two positions as a virtual assistant for two different New Thought Centers.
So what does all this mean to you?
Once I changed my mind about the direction I was going, Spirit, the Universe, or whatever you call God, opened doors that I had not seen before to aid me in moving in the direction I decided I wanted to go.
The process of changing your life includes these four steps:
- State your intentions
- Surrender to Spirit
- Pay attention to the changes
- Finding grace in all circumstances
I shared my process in stating my intention above. Being clear about where you want to go or what you want to achieve is the first step in this process.
In a world where we are taught to believe we need to push and shove our way through life, it is easier and more satisfying to learn to go with the flow (Step 2). The Universe/Spirt will show us the way once we surrender.
The third step is to pay attention. Everything around you works together to bring you the desired outcome. But we need to look and notice even the smallest things.
Lastly, see grace in every situation. In my case, the pandemic and the loss of my home was a turning point for me to see things differently. I found the blessing during chaos going on around me and became grateful for even the littlest of things.
This process does not happen overnight. Sometimes we need to go through the same thing over and over again until we learn to see the signs. Just be patient with yourself, surrender, pay attention and find grace.
