There is a saying: “You are known by the company you keep.” And through our environments, we tend to inherit the beliefs of those with whom we spend the most time. These philosophies then become part of our subconscious mind.
Research shows that we function largely with subconscious minds that have been programmed by others. As humans, we have the amazing ability to change past conditioning. We can achieve this by releasing negativity, interacting with like-minded conscious people, enjoying inspirational sights and sounds, and engaging in uplifting activities. In this way, we can develop new positive ways of living and begin to clear the subconscious of all that does not serve us.
True transformation is brought about by the two qualities inherent in consciousness: attention (or focus) and intention, a clear vision of a desired outcome. Attention energizes and intention transforms. What we place our attention on expands in our lives. And our intention for the object of our attention will orchestrate the forces of the universe to support our desired result. Harnessing this power of attention and intention, you can change your life to reflect exactly what you envision.
Entering into the field of all possibilities during meditation allows us to bear witness to our co-creative powers and change any situation in our lives. For instance, if you want to move from where you currently live, to be closer to the ocean, then you might envision a two bedroom home, one block from the water's edge with a vegetable garden and lawn for the dog. Being specific helps crystallize the vision. When you go into meditation, look at this intention and let it go, surrendering to the field of all possibilities, and allow the universe to correlate the details.
You are a radiant, cherished and deeply loved being imbued with the seeds of divinity and possess the power to live a life filled with love, joy, health, compassion, friends, material possessions, and whatever else you choose. Expect and accept this ultimate good and revel in the truth of your resplendent existence.
Right now, as we prepare for meditation, let's take a moment to contemplate today’s centering thought:
“Today, I embrace my potential to be do and have whatever I can dream.”
