Your Life is a Movie - How to Make it Amazing
Today I’m going to let you in on a secret about your reality. It’s not really a secret, but since so few people know this piece of truth, it can be considered a “mystery of the Universe.”
(Well that sounded really dramatic...)
First, I want to tell you that whatever you’re experiencing in your life right now, is not who you are.
Your current situation is only a culmination of what you manifested in the past. It’s not a determining factor for how your life will be in the future.
And yes, you read that right - you manifested your current situation. Many of my students have a hard time hearing that, but it's the truth. Whatever you are experiencing today, is a direct reflection of what you were “expecting” or visualizing in your mind. Even the bad stuff (I’d argue there isn’t any “bad stuff”, but that’s a conversation for another day) is in your life because you manifested it.
Here’s the reality (this is the secret part…);
You can ONLY experience your own consciousness. You can’t experience any other person’s consciousness. Therefore, you can only experience what has been created by you.
If you’re hearing that for the first time, it can be hard to understand, so let’s break it down into smaller pieces.
You know that your dreams are in your mind, and only your mind. When you fall asleep at night, you have dreams that play out in your mind and no one else can see or hear them. Right? That is your subconscious mind. It’s created by you, and only you can experience it.
OK, so your conscious mind is very similar. It exists when you’re awake, but just like your subconscious mind, it is created by you and only you can experience it.
Think of it like this, your waking world is a dream playing out in your mind. Your house, car, job, family, neighbors, school, bank account, grocery store, etc… It’s all created by you, and no one but you can experience it the way you experience it.
Consider this, in your dreams, if someone hits you with a car, you’d wake up wondering “why” you had a dream like that. You’d wonder if it was brought about by something you ate before bed, or maybe you’d wonder if it was a sign of some kind.
But whatever you think about how or why you dreamt that someone hit you with a car, you’d recognize that it’s not the fault of the person in your dream. They’re just a person in YOUR dream doing what YOU dreamt they were doing.
Now, here’s where it gets interesting… Life is the same way. If someone hits you with a car, don’t be mad at them. THEY didn’t do it, you did. It’s your consciousness, your life. You created all of it. You should no more be upset with people in “real” life for wronging you than you should be upset with someone in a dream for wronging you.
Did I blow your mind yet?
Listen, I know this is weird stuff to hear. I started learning this same information years before I finally understood it. One day, it all ‘clicked” into place, and I finally got it. It takes a while for this to sink in, so sit with it for as long as you need to.
But, the one thing I really want you to learn and take away from this story, is that you are in 100% CONTROL of your life. Always. You can do, be, have, learn, teach, experience, anything you want.
You created your life, and it’s playing out like a movie. So if you don’t like the movie, yell CUT, and rewrite the script. I’m going to tell you again;
You can do, be, have, learn, teach, experience, anything you want.
There is nothing that holds you back. I know you’ll tell me otherwise. You’re thinking things like, “I don’t have enough money to do what I want, I’m not educated enough, I’m not as creative as other people” etc. Those statements are just stories you’re making up, and they’re not true.
Next week I’m going to talk about the stories we tell ourselves, and how they hold us back.
In the meantime, try rewriting your current story. Start with the small stuff, and build up your confidence in your ability to craft your life. Then move on to changing the bigger stuff.
I’ll give you an example. Yesterday I went to Sephora at a shopping mall. It’s a pretty big mall, and it’s always packed (even on a Tuesday). It was cold and raining, and I really didn’t want the hassle of parking, and going in, just to pick up one quick item. However, I really needed the item (lol), so off I went to the mall. When I got there, I said (aloud to myself, cuz that’s how I roll), “I’m so grateful to find a parking space right in front of the entrance.” And as I pulled into the parking lot, there was an open space right in front of the entrance that’s closest to Sephora. I parked and was in and out of the mall in 15 minutes.
That is how you begin rewriting the movie of your life. Expect different outcomes, visualize the things you want (even if it’s just a better parking spot), ask the Universe to give it to you, and be open & receive it when it’s provided. Try it with little things, and slowly move your way up to the bigger things in life.
It works. Try it and be amazed.
Now, go manifest yourself a greater life!
