There are a few days that bring much of the population of the earth focusing on a single thing. Of course it's impossible with the diversity of the world for everyone to focus on one thing at one time (especially with all the channels on cable TV!) But there are still a few events and days such as this. Christmas, of course comes to mind, New Year's Eve, certain sporting events and also, in the world of entertainment the night of the Academy Awards. You may not know this, but as a young person I did lots of acting and theatre. Theatre and acting was and still is a passion for me. Being a trained actor, I always watch the Academy Awards every year to see which actors and films have been honored for their work.
I believe the people who we honor as stars, have taken the idea of becoming someone who is starring in their own life very seriously. And it is precisely because they have taken that seriously that we in turn see them as stars. Because they see themselves as stars…
Now, of course we know of the stories of actors and actresses who have not led the healthiest of lives. That is not what I'm talking about here. I'm talking about how they see themselves and because of that, what has manifested in their lives. The point is they see the star in themselves. They have that belief about themselves. They sense the unique and beautiful qualities that only they possess. They see this first and then they allow their star to shine. Then we see it too…
How much are you embracing your inner Star?
How much are you starring in your own life?
Are you waiting for the curtain to go up, so you can finally step into the light?
Are you rehearsing for the time when you REALLY need to shine?
Is fear holding you back from being the star of your life?
Do you have a block against shining your light in the world?
Do you believe that the people who shine are self-centered or selfish?
Well, I am here to remind you that the movie of your life started the day you came here. The film crew is always filming. The most incredible thing is that you are not only the star of your own movie. But you are the director, the casting agent and most powerfully…you are the writer.
If you don't like the role that you've written for yourself so far in life, rewrite it and change your role.
If you don't like the cast of characters you have hired to be in your life, change the cast and audition new ones.
If you don't like that your life has become a drama and you thought that it would be more of a romantic comedy, rewrite your story…
There is no time to waste in living the life your heart yearns to live. The movie has already started, but you can always create the most incredible and exciting of plot twists you choose from here on out!
In my training as an actor I was taught that “There are no small parts, only small actors” which means that whatever role you are playing, you are meant to look at that role as being the star of the play. I was taught to look at it like all the elements of the story and the relationships revolve around the character that you are cast as. When an actor does that, they bring a depth and uniqueness to the character, a character which could have meant nothing at all in the scheme of the play as a whole, but suddenly is noticed and stands out to the audience. As opposed to the actor saying “Well this is just a five lines and it’s not the starring role” then the actor just walks through the part and no one even remembers them.
You have cast yourself in your life as a certain role. You can either cast yourself as an important and vital role of the whole film of your life, or you can cast yourself as a minor walk on character. Your choice…
The time is now to step out into the light and be the STAR you came here to be.
If you start now, by next year you may hear “...and the winner is…YOU!”
Say YES if you will begin STARRING in your life today! XXX
(This excerpt from the book "Say Yes if...30 Days of Positive Questions to Transform Your Life" by Max Ryan)
I went to Waikiki and had an amazing realization that all my dreams are coming true! Your can too...
Newsflash: all the things that are not working in your life, are the things that are going to bring you to the most peace and the most joy and the most love possibly the most success. Now, this seems contradictory to what you may believe or definitely what you want to do. But, I want you to start to think about all the things that are not working or that feel really bad in your life. Common wisdom may say not to look at those things and just keep looking towards what you want to create in your life, in any area of your life. Common wisdom will say if you keep your "Eye on the prize" you will achieve it. And in some ways that is true. Having a clear vision of what you want in any area of your life that will bring you the most joy the most peace or the most success is vitally important. But, what most of us don't realize is that looking at what's not working will get you more clear about where you are going.
It is very common in the self-help and new thought community, to stay positive and only look at what's working. This philosophy encourages walking through the world with a rose-colored glasses on. We know that walking through the world with rose-colored glasses on is not the best way to your goals or your success or your peace. It only encourages the things that you're not looking at come back at some point and slap you in the face. That is why only staying "positive" will only get you so far. The reason that It will only get you so far, is because life will always bring up challenges or things you don't want. That is the nature of living in this three dimensional world. If you ignore or push against those things that you don't like or make you feel bad, you are not really living life. The things that aren't working or that seem to be your problems actually are the things that will help you to get more clear about what you do want and if you stick with it eventually your success.
"How is that?" you say. "How can I look at what's not working, and still be positive?" And here is the answer: by looking at what you don't want or what makes you feel bad very briefly. If you can look at what's not working in your life briefly and constructively it will give you all the clues of what you do want and it will bring you into the vibration of what you do want so you can let go of the negative vibration of the problem. Once again, the keyword here is to look at those things "briefly".
. The most important thing is that you be honest with yourself and see that they're not working and to take those things as a guide post to help you to get more clear about what you do want. Those things you don't want are not problems. They are guideposts which are helping you in every way. If you can start to do this, you will end up being more positive. I guarantee it. Because when you face the things that aren't working and shift them being a block for you, they will become your point of freedom.
If you are new to this way of thinking and being, it will take practice. It will take some diligence on your part to remind yourself that the problem that you have ascribed as a problem, is only there to help you to get to where you really do want.
You might say that this is the basis of making lemonade out of lemons. Let's face it, if you don't even see that there are lemons there you can never make lemonade, right? Think about it, if there were a ton of lemons in front of your door blocking you to get out, and you knew that behind that door was everything that you needed for your life, you would look at those lemons and quickly figure out a way to cut them up, make them smaller and shift them so that you could get out the door, right? You wouldn't, on the other hand sit there and stare at the pile of lemons and fret and wonder and keep looking at them over and over and over again. Your survival instinct would kick in and realize you need to look at these lemons very briefly and shift them so you could get out the door!
This philosophy has been around for a very long time. It is nothing new. But, very few people are in the practice of being able to do this. I want you to be able to do this moment to moment and day today in your life... all the time.
I have all the faith in you, that you will be able to open up a very successful lemonade stand very soon! From then on life will be a bowl of cherries… Or lemons… Haha!
To have a different experience of the life you have you must have a different experience of who you are...
Think about this for just a minute: how many people including yourself, do you know in your life that is in a place where they are not happy? They're not happy with their relationships. They're not happy with their careers. They're not happy with their health. They are not happy with their wealth or lack of it. Any of the above circumstances. Many of these people, maybe even you, talk about how they want to change these areas of their lives. They talk about how where they are is not where they want to be. They talk about how if they could only get out of their current situation they then would be happy and be living the life they think they are meant to be living.
This is the perfect place to start in our lives to begin the incredible miraculous and even magical process of change and manifestation. This is the beginning of the beginning. This is when you look at what you don't want so you know what you do want.
If this need for change is great enough, then people will start to take certain actions and start to change their mind about their current circumstances so they can reach the circumstances that they dream of. They will read books. They will search out a coach or a trainer. They will begin the process of manifesting that new change in their life.
Of course I've seen this many times with many people over and over in my work. People that are ready for the change. People that want all of these things and yet what I have found is that many people are not willing to have a different experience of themselves.
What I mean by this is that in order for us to have a different experience of our life and our circumstances, we need to have a different experience of ourselves first. This is crucial in the manifestation process.
Think about this: there is a young mail clerk in a big corporation. He wants to be the head of the corporation. He wants to earn the money. He wants to have the life. He wants to have the influence. He knows this and keeps working as himself hoping and wishing that someday he will make it to the top. He keeps wishing day in and day out that this would happen, yet he still believes that he is the mailroom clerk in the bottom office. He still sees himself as the mailroom clerk in the bottom office. He still feels himself as the mailroom clerk in the bottom office. And eventually guess what happens? For many of the mailroom clerks of the world they might rise one or two levels, but they never get the top. They get to the end of their life and think "I wish I could have gotten there..."
The reason that the mailroom clerks of the world so rarely make it to the top, is because they are looking at everything from the perspective of the mailroom clerk. They are acting from the perspective of the mailroom clerk. They are thinking from the perspective of the mailroom clerk. They are doing from the perspective of the mailroom clerk. You get my point. What they haven't done is to have a different experience of themselves other then the mailroom clerk. They haven't activated their imagination. They haven't spent time energy and focus seeing , believing and knowing that there is a small part of them within themselves that has all the goals and desires that they dream of.
You see, in order to have a different experience, you have to experience your self differently. As soon as we experience ourselves differently everything in the universe is set up to start to bring those kinds of experiences, opportunities and goals into your vibration. I can guarantee you, if you are not spending time seeing yourself as that person who has the things and the experiences of life that you now only dream of, the likelihood of it manifesting in your life is slim to none. On the other hand, if you do spend time doing that, everything will move much faster for you.
I can hear your next question right now. How do we do that? Well, start with these 3 steps...
1. Know and take stock at the deepest level of who you are, that you are creating everything in your life. This comes back to basic universal principle. Everything you're experiencing in your life is because you are living it internally on a vibrational level. Your outer life is a reflection of your inner life.
Realize that what you are experiencing right now is what you you have created from the past. The you you are experiencing right now is your projection of your past ideas of who you thought you were. This can be tough if you are in a place that doesn't feel good in some area of your life. But, it is vital that you accept this truth. There is something within you vibrationally that has created who you are right now.
2. Change your concept of yourself. What I mean by that is start to look at what you believe about yourself that is not serving you. Look at what you are telling yourself about your life and about life in general that is not serving you to live a life of wonder, success and love. As you start to do this, you will begin to realize that the part of you that you're experiencing right now as your self, is very small. The possibilities of who you can become are far greater then the small ideas of what you are right now.
3. Be open and willing to change. Be open to the thought that your beliefs of who you are are the springboard to who you want to be. Take the magical leap off that springboard into who you want to be or what circumstance you want to create in your life. Literally feel it. Literally see it. Do this on a daily basis, and you will begin to change your concept of who you are.
When you do or accept these 3 things, your concept of who you are will start to match who you want to be and/or what you want to experience.
Know that your imagination is one of the most powerful tools that you could ever have in your life. Honor your imagination. Treasure your imagination. Use your imagination to serve yourself and serve the world in a much more effective, purposeful and creative way.
Remember everything starts with you. When you change your idea about yourself and consistently focus on who you want to be instead of your current circumstances, everything will fall in line. I know you can do it!
What you are experiencing in your life right now is a reflection of the thoughts that you had previously two now.
This is the basis of creation. This is the basis of making your life in line with the divine flow. As we really gets the fact that we are co-creating with the universe at all times, we understand and more importantly, activate this divine law.
If what you are experiencing in the moment is something that you do not want, it is just a reflection that you had a vibration that is manifesting itself in the present moment. If it is any area of our lives including financial, relationships, career or your overall experience of your life you had to have a matching vibration to get that result in the present moment. I realize that this can be a daunting and tough lesson to get, but when you do it is your ticket to freedom. In fact, it is not just your ticket to freedom but your ticket to peace, joy, love and creation.
It is through much trial and error that eventually we all get to understand and see the power of this concept. It is up to you to embrace this concept now and start to be a true cocreator with the divine flow so that you can escape your suffering forever. As the Buddha says, "suffering comes from life not being what you wanted to be." On the deepest metaphysical level we are suffering because we're sending out a vibration of what we think we wanted to be. Now, this is not to say that we want tragedy or financial struggle or anything that feels in conflict. What it is saying is that allow life to be what it is and then make a new decision to create something that you do want and that feels fantastic!
One of the first ways to do this is to take responsibility that everything in your life is somehow reflecting your vibration. It is then that you can respond in a different way. It is then that you can say "In this moment, I choose joy" This is a consistent practice. It is not a magical solution. But it contains with in it the most powerful tool that we have our ability to choose beyond the insanity of the ego.
The next thing to do, is to ask yourself what it is that I am thinking about and what it is I am focusing on? If there is something you are focusing on that is worrying you or upsetting you, then change your focus. Change what you were looking at. Change your mind and your results will change also. The more you do this on a consistent basis, the more the results will show more piece, more joy, more love and results that feel fantastic!
