Deliberate Creation starts with taking responsibility for what has already manifested or keeps manifesting around you as part of your reality.
That can be one of the most difficult ideas to get behind when you find yourself in the thick of things.
This idea that we create what we experience is also a huge part of Patanjali's Yoga Sutras. There are verses dedicated to explaining how the consciousness engages with external stimulus to create a false identity. And that, it is within the power of each individual to break through those identities to discover True Self.
'Why is this happening to me?'
That is the question most of us default to when we experience something that doesn't fall into what we thought would happen or when we are faced with pain and suffering or when we find ourselves trapped by our circumstance.
This morning I found myself in the middle of such a circumstance. I was grappling with a family issue that has cropped up again and one that I have dealt with all my life. I have done a lot of work on the impact it has had on me as a child and the impact it can have on me now, as an adult. And I still have a way to go...
I spent most of the morning, in bed, feeling drained, unable to get to any creative work I had planned for the day.
The situation at home is not something I have direct control over nor is it something I can get in the middle of. But like all taboo issues that are well hidden from the rest of the world, it has the power to stop me in my tracks and upset my center.
So I found myself thinking, 'Why is this happening to me, again?!'
'Why is this happening for me?'
I quickly changed to answering this question. It's my power question. It takes me from feeling like a victim to healing from a place of strength.
I create my reality. My reality is a reflection of thoughts and feelings inside of me. I attract what I believe to be true and what I feel I deserve.
By asking why this is happening for me, I look within. I look for the part of me that needs healing. I look for the self-defeating thoughts. I look for the learning I am still to have with this situation. I look for the chance to use my inner guidance to take me back to my center, to my state of happiness as quickly as I can. I look at the ways to live the experience without engaging the lower vibrations.
When you find yourself in the thick of things, don't play the victim for too long. You are more than that, you deserve better than that, you can have a different ending.
