Return and repeat….


A few weeks have disappeared while I muddied my own waters and got lost in the shallows. I had ventured forth nurturing a connection and was giving it space and time to see what evolved. My words had changed and were embracing the new, but my emotions were firmly locked back in the past. So guess what happened? I got a repeat of the past.

All of life is energy and we are all energy. What is reflected back to us, is what we are putting out there energetically, no matter what words or actions we dress it up in. Some of us are facing tragic, difficult and at times overwhelming circumstances, yet we still have the power to choose our own thoughts. We also have the power to change the patterns that our thoughts are driving.

We feel our way through life with our emotions sparking from our thoughts, which then drive our words and actions. We get what we focus our attention on, so it is natural to want to nurture and foster thoughts that ease us into a contented space. We can choose our thoughts.

I watched the planes on the distant horizon coming in to land this morning. The sky was dark with snow clouds and every now and then, as they circled, the plane’s lights would shine through the murk.

I have had two significant sparks shine through in the last twenty four hours. One was from a loving friend sitting in my ‘happy bubble’ favourite chair and watching the view. She was listening to me natter away and with her insightful way of being she suddenly swung her gaze onto me and said ‘What you have just said is a great idea, how about doing that?’ and I felt the energy of it, smiled at her and it took root. ❤ The second spark came as I watched the planes, again from my favourite chair. I ‘twigged’ that I had got exactly what my emotions expected with the way recent events unfolded. It simply is what it is, because it matched my emotional energy vibration.

We choose what we focus on and life, being the natural force that it is, will flow it back to us. Return and repeat.

It makes you think doesn't it? What thoughts we can foster to nurture and grow contented plants in our life gardens. We choose our thoughts and that can change our patterns.

    Fantastic post Jane. So true, we get what we focus on, so we may as well make it positive. And glad to see you on Twitter, I’m now following you. ❤ xoxo

    Some of your expressions are very appealing. I liked the “happy bubble chair.” Great thought.

    I love this post. Some days I struggle to find my ‘happy place’ but then I remember, it’s up to me. I determine which way I handle situations. It’s all about the positive energy!

    Hello Jane xx Our emotions do tend to do their own thing no matter how well we have thought things through and decided how we ought to proceed. There was obviously some unfinished business that you need/needed to sort out before you can progress with your life.
    I hope things become easier for you now and I look forward to hearing all about your great idea!
    Much love and lots of hugs
    Clare xx ❤ xx

    What a deliciously thoughtful and deep post this is. As one who knows the experience of living in “troubled times” this resonated with me deeply

    I agree that generally we can choose our own thoughts However, there are times when something dark, triggered by inner chemistry, keeps welling up displacing the joy-of -living. Sometimes this overlay eclipses that very delight in our universe which most of your posts so aptly describe. Keep smiling!

      Hello Jane and thank you. I had an eclipse recently when a shared photo sparked a wave of grief within me. I tried every technique I have learned to manage how I felt, till I realised that I just needed to let the feeling be. It hurt, so it was hard to have that hurt, but I eased into it and it found it’s own place. I didn’t ‘get over it’ and stopped trying to sweep it aside. It simply was. As I acknowledged the pain, let the tears flow and let it be I found my peace again after a time. Hugs for you. ❤
