Are you literally saying this out loud? Maybe your subconscious is thinking it. “As soon as I can get a better job….” “When I finally leave this relationship…” “Once I move…”
Without consciously realizing it we are often trying to get out of something. When we are not content with our status quo, we are coming from a place of lack; believing our “reality” will be better after something happens. When that dynamic is happening we are not in the present moment embracing with gratitude and love all that IS wonderful in our lives and manifesting from a place of abundance and fulfillment.
Most of my life I’ve been trying to get away from something; my parents, school, my husband, my life, my job, my work! I had a major realization when I found myself in a beautiful, peaceful life, that I had created, yet, I had no idea how to BE in it! I had no experience of “No Drama!” So, subconsciously I created some so that I could stay in my uncomfortable comfort zone. It didn’t last long, and drama is relative compared to what it used to be, but it was interesting that I created a situation that I had to get out of because that was all I knew.
As consciously evolving spiritual people we are always manifesting our heart’s desires and they happen when we do it from a place of alignment, abundance gratitude. Our egos are stealthy little creatures that sneak in and make us believe our own stories until one day we have the dawning “aha” moment and it becomes quite obvious as to how we are not living our most authentic truth.
Things can always be better, and will be if they are perfect now! Long ago I learned to respect the order of things and if I missed a train or plane instead of fretting I thanked the Universe for protecting me or giving me a great opportunity that otherwise I may have missed. We project and get attached to how we think things are supposed to be instead of going with the flow and living in the moment, joyful, grateful, maybe curious.
Spiritually when we feel that we are knocked off our centre we immediately do what we can to get back in alignment – like “get me out of this stuck place!” Because when we’re out of alignment we feel it and know it’s not going to help us move forward. But it’s the same principle in the material world.
I was being hosted by friends, living in spare rooms and sleeping on couches for five months, extremely grateful for the support and holding while I figured out what I wanted to do and where I wanted to go. Meanwhile, I heard others in a similar situation complaining that they didn’t have their own space. Same situation, different mindsets. When I started to get itchy feet and looked for a place to live the right place flowed into my experience quickly, easily. I know it could have been a very different story.
So if you find yourself thinking “It’ll be better when…” check yourself because your RIGHT NOW is all that matters and if you embrace that with love, joy, and gratitude the future will be bright.
