Each of us is on a journey, and the journey never ends. We can choose to love the journey, be indifferent, resist, enjoy, or worry about it. We control the journey and how we feel about it. Why not love the ride? Enjoy the views, the vistas, the slow and the fast, the hills and the bumps, the twists and the turns, the stop lights and the green lights, the other drivers.
Notice how you experience your day. When all is going well, do you just expect it? Are you thankful for the flow? Notice how you respond when you hit what appears to be a snag. How do you feel?
What happens to you when you are driving down the road and there is road construction? Do you think, “oh, no, I’m going to be late.” And then proceed to focus on how late you’re going to be, feeling bad each second? Or do you know that you will arrive in divine timing?
I used to worry about being late and keeping someone waiting for me. I live pretty far out in the country, and there is so much terrain I cover—anything can happen on the journey. When I get in the car, I ask that I arrive in perfect timing. I thank my car for getting me there safely, and I am thankful for everything I experience on my way. Most of the time, my journey speeds by because I am enjoying it so much. Sometimes, though, the train is crossing or road construction slows the flow. Great, I think. Thank you for slowing me down or giving me this time to breathe or enjoy the view. I know I will arrive in divine timing, so I can relax and enjoy whatever it is. I often use this gift of time to breathe an enjoy the view. I like to look around the area and notice what is going on in nature and look up at the the sky. Noticing what’s beautiful or interesting brings joy to my day. When I arrive, it’s always perfect timing. I arrive happy, and so whoever I’m meeting is happy to see me.
Talking about the driving journey is just a metaphor for the journey of life. Where are you in your life journey? How do you feel about your journey? It’s important to note how you feel. What you feel about the journey reveals what’s inside of you.
If you are happy when you think of your life journey, fantastic! Are you sharing your joy with others? Perhaps your life could inspire others to find the joy in their own lives. Perhaps you can share the joy with each other. I love it when others share something wonderful about their lives with me. I feel their joy—its abundance evokes joy in me. Anytime we share our joy with others, the feeling is exponentialized in the universe.
What do you want to feel? If it’s exactly what you want to feel right now, that’s awesome. Share that abundance with someone else. If it’s not, can you focus on what you’d like to feel? Each day, simply focusing on the feeling you would like to create in your life can change the journey for you. Once you have the feeling, sync with the vibration of it. If you would like more fun in your life, just feel what fun feels like. Maybe you can remember a time you were having fun, and then you can connect with what fun felt like in your body. Sync with that feeling as often as you can. All you have to do is imagine fun and feel it. Consider when you sit up in bed first thing in the morning, sync with it and ask that the feeling and vibration be with you all day. What will begin to happen is that as you sync to the vibration of fun, you will attract fun. When fun shows up, thank it. Appreciate it. Fun will come into your life, and as it does, you will be living the fun you wanted to create.
Recently, a client shared that he wasn’t enjoying his job. When I asked him what he wasn’t enjoying, he mentioned a few things, but mostly what he focused on was the feeling inside of himself. I asked him if he felt like there was some other job that he would like better. He didn’t know. I asked him if he thought with his educational background and experience if he could find something that would make him feel better. He didn’t know. I asked him if he wanted to fall in love with his job again. He said he didn’t know how. I encouraged him to find the things he loved in his job. Really notice them. Thank them. Feel appreciation for each thing. Even if he had to start small with I love the temperature of my office. I love that my paycheck is deposited like clockwork. I love how short my drive to work is. I love that I live in a place that has a climate that makes me feel good. Whatever it was. I suggested that if for just a week he focused on the things that he liked, he might feel better about his job. A week later, he felt completely differently. He was happy again. He noticed that as he focused on the little things, more that he appreciated became visible.
I believe what happened for him was that as he focused on what he liked, the vibration of happiness became stronger in him. As the vibration of happiness strengthened, he attracted and was attracted to more of his job that brought him joy. As he focused on what he liked, more of what he liked came to him. As more of what he liked was in his experience, less of what he didn’t like was in his experience.
What my client also realized was that he chose his points of focus. He created his happiness. As he realized this, he also realized that he had created the other experiences too. He had created the unhappiness, his dissatisfaction. It’s true. He did. We all do. In focusing on what he wanted . . . which was to like his job . . . all he had to do was sync with the vibration of liking.
I am working with another client who wants to create a new job for herself. She was miserable in her job. So, we started working on what her new job would feel like, what parts of herself would shine and be appreciated in her new job. She is really clear. What’s happened has been pretty magical. As she focused on what she wanted to feel like in her new job, she started to feel this vibration in her current job. She still wants a new job and is actively creating it, yet what’s great is that while she knows her current job isn’t the best fit, she’s at least enjoying her time there. What’s also great is that as she looks for the new job, she’s vibrating what she wants and bringing these new vibrations of happiness and clarity to her job search, which will help her sync with the company and position that will be her match. Now she’s having fun in the process and feeling empowered.
Many say, everything happens for a reason, and they believe it. Even if they don’t know what the reason is, they have faith that they are better for it. I believe the reason is inside of you. The reason you find inside of yourself. That reason vibrates in you.
You know what’s inside of you. If you read this and you think, I don’t always know what I’m feeling inside. I understand. We often go through periods of change or transition when we don’t exactly know. But we can. Close your eyes and ask your body, what do you feel right now? Perhaps it’s confusion. That’s a start. If that’s not what you want to feel, then ask yourself what you do want, and refocus on the feeling and vibration of it.
The thing is, no matter what you create right now, you’ll want to create something else along the way. That’s what life is all about. The journey. The process.
Sometimes, the speed bump, the road construction, the accident in the road allows the truth of your feelings to be revealed. Sometimes, a new perception uncovered. Understanding the vibration of whatever you feel as you experience your journey is your truth. Right in that moment. You are the creative mastermind of you.
Even when we feel happy, we can want to feel something new too. Variety and creating is exciting to many.
Whatever your motivation, watch how as you sync with the vibration of what you want, the feeling manifests in your thoughts and experiences as it becomes your reality. It might not look like what you envisioned, but it will feel like what is inside of you. Understand the magic of creating what you want to feel. Why not love the ride–whatever it is? Love the process, the journey, of you. Love the feeling of you.
