Vail perspective: Start creating your own reality

“I wake up in the morning, and I consciously create my day the way I want it to happen. Now sometimes, because my mind is examining all the things that I need to get done, it takes me a little bit to settle down and get to the point of where I’m actually intentionally creating my day. But here’s the thing: When I cre-ate my day, and out of nowhere little things happen that are so unexplainable, I know that they are the process or the result of my cre-ation. And the more I do that, the more I build a neural net in my brain that I accept that that’s possible. ( This) gives me the power and the incen-tive to do it the next day.”

– Dr. Joe Dispenza in ” What the BLEEP Do We Know!?”

And, I add, have no expectations of how your day will turn out.

I thought I would share this part of ” What the BLEEP Do We Know?” first, because it is the most request-ed section of the movie ( please go online to read the entire section) and secondly, because it reminds me that I get to choose each moment of each day. I have the free-dom and the power to make each day exactly what I want it to be and to react to life’s chaos in a new way.

If my thoughts create my reali-ty, then I want to be paying atten-tion to what I’m thinking as much in each moment as pos-sible. If my thoughts of yes-terday (even five minutes ago) create this moment, then what I’m thinking right now will create my future (even five minutes from now). This is free-dom. If I don’t like how this moment is feeling, then I can change it. It is complete freedom when you realize that you don’t have to just ” let life come at you,” and that you get to make decisions along the way.

Why do most of us live with ” life coming at us?” Why don’t most people believe or not realize that they have the choice of making their own day?

We’re not taught this – school doesn’t teach it, and most of our parents didn’t live it, so they could-n’t teach it to us. We are truly lucky to understand and begin to live this type of freedom.

When we create our day, we begin to notice the things that we have cre-ated. This is exciting, and then we have the desire to do it again. We begin to see the connection between our thoughts and our reality. If our thoughts have created a bad day, then we can change that at any time throughout our day – change your thoughts, change your reality.

Most of us live our moments through past experience. Try looking at how you want to react to a familiar situation, and then choose to react differently – just for the heck of it, experiment with it. You might like it, and the response or outcome may be exactly what you were looking for. We are familiar with our past and comfortable with it – that’s why it’s so easy to respond from that point of view. Creating our day or our moment requires us to be conscious of how we are responding in each moment. It also requires that we learn what it is like to respond from our truth, not being concerned about the reactions from others. This is tough, again, because we have not been taught how to do this. Speak your truth in each moment, and create each moment. Things can change, and you can be in charge of the changes in your life.
