The Universe does not know whether the vibration that you're offering is because of something you're observing or something you're remembering or something that you are imagining. It just receives the vibration and answers it with things that match it.

Most people think that to in order to have happiness, you have to be wealthy. But that's not true. Upon realizing they need to create their own happiness, many people just run out and start blowing lots of money because they think that's how you get happy. But, unless they grasp this critical information their troubles are only just beginning.
If you rely on external circumstances or people for your happiness, then you have no control at all. Is this what you want? I don't think so. After all, we all know that we cannot change other people. The best and fastest way to "change others" is to change yourself. In order to do that you have to go inside yourself and find the answers. The answers are there for sure. You can control what goes on in your mind and what you absorb and believe. As we talked about last week, you can change your environment and what you are exposed to and in so doing, you can also change how you think about things. You can question those beliefs that you were taught (remember that a belief is just a thought you keep thinking over and over). In questioning them you can determine if you wish to continue to believe them. You are old enough and smart enough to research the thoughts and beliefs and determine if they are just something you were taught by well-meaning (usually well-meaning) people and not necessarily what you still choose to believe.
The point is that you can change how you view a situation. You can continue to be upset by an event or you can choose to make the most of it. I have a close friend who has a serious condition and yet has chosen to deal with each and every curveball thrown in her direction. She is a model for others in how she approaches her problem. She simply marches on. Others might wallow in "oh no, now what" or "how could this happen to me" or think about how others are going to help them. None of that is productive. Facing the music and deciding what you are going to do with it is what matters - how are you going to think about the situation, the recommendations, the results? What are you going to do with your life in the face of what you're up against. Are you going to roll over and give in or are you going to stand up to whatever it is and make the most of it and make yourself as happy as you can while enduring it? That would make the most sense wouldn't it? Why make yourself more miserable?
You control EVERYTHING - remember the Law of Attraction ALWAYS works, not just to bring you good things. It's working 24 hours a day 7 days a week. Make the most of it and show the world that you are in control. Again, I recommend you think of hiring a coach to help you recognize what you can change and how.
It will amaze you how much faster you can get things done just by understanding that you have to stop looking outside yourself for answers and changes. Do it yourself. You know you can. The Universe is there to help you with this! Contact me about coaching if you want to learn more about coaching.
