Changing Your Outer Reality
by Egan Sanders
THINK OF THE UNIVERSE AS A CIRCLE and that you are in the middle of it. Imagine that the vibrations of your consciousness move outward from you – like waves - and then return back to you as experiences and events. Our BETA - beliefs, emotions, thoughts and actions - are the vibrations that are moving out from us - the center of our circle - and then coming back. They are the literal mechanism of creation.
Until you are aware – consciously aware – of your beliefs, emotions, thoughts, and actions, your ability to shape your experience can be limited. The good news is that it is very easy to become aware. You simply observe yourself for nothing is hidden – unless you believe it is hidden.
Two people can be standing right next to each other and experience a completely different reality depending on their beliefs, emotions, and thoughts.
A belief is like a blueprint. It is the plan or pattern to which all the materials needed to flesh it out are drawn. The architect is you. All vibrations are self-perpetuating. Your beliefs are self-perpetuating. An optimist will see the positive and create those circumstances, while a pessimist will naturally vibrate with a critical viewpoint and see the negative in every situation. Two people can be standing right next to each other and experience a completely different reality depending on their beliefs, emotions, and thoughts.
This is the great power that each of us has been given. How are you using it? The universe is impartial. It does not tell you what to believe, think, or feel. If you have a negative thought or feeling, you have the choice to give yourself a positive alternative. In this age of transformation, many people are espousing the idea that we create our reality just with our thoughts. While this idea is valid, we also have to recognize that as human beings we are a package deal of beliefs, emotions, thoughts and actions.
If the goal of many people is to grow, expand, and express their unique potential, it inevitably compels us to work holistically – integrating all the aspects together to rediscover wholeness once again. Although it may seem a contradiction – the higher we reach in consciousness, the more we may encounter unresolved issues, feelings, or thoughts. Things come up to be healed – to reestablish wholeness.
Does it serve us to deny that which we truly feel or think? If we affirm something with a smile, but do not fully feel that it is possible, then the outward result will be mixed. Covering up feelings with positive thoughts may not get to the root of the issue. In fact, it may just build up a stronger charge, which may show up later in a more dramatic form.
Here is a conscious, holistic approach to changing your outer reality by observing and changing your inner reality. These questions are an easy way to first examine what you are putting out into the universe, and then giving yourself a positive alternative. Begin by taking something that is bothering you; a negative thought, an experience or a situation and use the following questions to gain more awareness of how you are using your creative power."What would I need to believe in order to be feeling this/experiencing this?"
"What emotion(s) does this belief generate within me? How does the belief make me feel physically? How does it affect my breath?"
"What thought(s) does this emotion(s) generate? What ideas, perspectives and viewpoints come up?"
"What action(s) would these thoughts generate? If I were a person believing, feeling and thinking in this particular way, how would this cause me to act?"
This is owning the belief. This is really looking at the effects it creates. All emotions, thoughts, and feelings are the effect of a belief. These questions may get you in touch with something you have hidden from yourself or bring up emotions that you may not even realize you had. This is step one – seeing what is.
Step two - give yourself a new choice. Ask yourself what would you truly prefer to experience? What is the positive alternative? Take the negative thought, experience, or situation that you used for the above questions, and change the belief to a positive one. Now ask yourself the following questions to align yourself with the positive reality.
"What would I need to believe in order to be experiencing this positive alternative?"
"What emotion(s) does this positive belief generate within me? How does the positive belief make me now feel - physically?"
"What thought(s) does this positive emotion(s) generate? What new ideas, perspectives and viewpoints come up?"
"What action(s) would these positive thoughts generate? If I were a person believing, feeling and thinking in this particular way, how would I act?" Who would you be?"
More than likely you will feel lighter and a greater sense of well being from looking at the positive alternative. If you then focus on the positive alternative, and consistently act the way a person would if they had that positive belief, you will then step into that version of reality.
Too often people do not even question reality or give themselves other possibilities. You hear a negative voice in your mind and surrender to it. Voices are really choices. The truth is you create yourself anew in each and every moment. In each moment you choose who you are and the universe automatically supports you in whatever choice you choose. When you believe - you are choosing your reality, and you always have a choice.
