If your life is not the way you want it? Blaming the people around you or your circumstances might be keeping you exactly where you don’t want to be. Look inside and know that you and you alone have created your reality!
We are all governed by a set of universal laws and principles and when we are not in line with these laws, nature will have a way of letting you know.
This week I am going to be sharing some information on:
The Law of Correspondence
The Law of Correspondence tells us that our outer world is nothing more than a reflection of our inner world – as within, so without.
This is an extraordinary principle and really says that our current reality is a mirror of what is going on inside us. If our outer reality is unhappy, chaotic or unfulfilling it is a direct result of what is happening inside us. If we have low self-esteem, feel badly about ourselves or constantly feel anger, hatred or loathing, then our outer world will be a place of chaos, just to show you what you are projecting.
The truly sad thing is that it becomes a self-perpetuating situation and we feel bad about ourselves and our outer world is unhappy. The worse the outer world becomes, the worse we then feel about ourselves, which has a direct impact on our reality. To escape from this trap, it is critical to shift your paradigm.
Nothing in our outer lives can change without first making changes on the inside. In fact, the basis for all self-help is exchanged from the inside out!
“All transformation is an inside job” -Mitch Behan
It does not matter one bit what we change on the outside, if we haven’t done the work to change on the inside. Our reality will continue to evolve so that it is a reflection of our inner beliefs and world.
In all cases, our outer world reflects our inner world in every way, shape and form. If we desire change in our outer world, we must first change our inner world and our thoughts, beliefs and attitudes. Stated another way, our current situation is a direct result of the way we think. If we want to shift our paradigm, then we must change the way we think!
One of my favourite quotes is from Wayne Dyer:
“when you change the way you look at things the things you look at change”
This quote is the basis of my work and I am not empowering positive thinking but what I mean with this reference is, our unconscious lop sided perceptions are the cause this chaos happening in our lives.
We have total and complete control over only one thing in life, our thinking. It is not until we change our thought patterns to focus on what it is we truly desire, that we can effect meaningful and lasting change. This is difficult for most people to accept, as blaming others for the things that are wrong in our lives has become common practice. Lets face it, it is much easier on our egos to blame someone else for what is wrong in our lives, than it is to accept the responsibility!
The truly wonderful thing is that by taking control of our minds and thinking, we take control over all other aspects of our life. This is the key to personal fulfilment and balance! By focusing specifically on what it is that we truly desire, and by eliminating all thoughts of what we don’t want, we can begin to shape, mould and build our lives to our own specifications!
Here are some strategies on what you can do to make a change
These are three things that you can start doing immediately that will help you to begin to build the life you desire:
1. Take a hard and objective look at your current reality – career, relationships, health and financial situation. Ask yourself the question: How are my inner thoughts and attitudes being reflected in my outer world? If you have someone that you don’t like and they display a behaviour that just gets on your nerves: Ask yourself where do I do that behaviour in my life and haven’t owned it about myself. All humans have the same behaviours and traits and the ones that trigger us in other people are merely the suppressed ones that we haven’t owned and accepted.
2. Take full responsibility for whatever is happening in your life, be it good or bad. Begin today by making the choice to change your thinking. When you blame you are empowereing someone or something else in life and leaving out the most important person…You!
3. Begin to visualize the world that you truly desire and focus your thoughts on this. Ask yourself the question: In order to achieve this outer world, what changes will I need to make internally? Whatever the required changes, take action today to start making them, if you have trouble get some help! You are not here to just exist.
Understanding the Law of Correspondence is the first step towards taking control of your life. If you want positive change, look inside first and remember:
Change the quality of your thoughts and you will change the quality of your life!
