Living in the Stream of Yes

Focus on Wanted NOW


We want to put our focus on what we want as much as we can. All of us want more evidence of Good in our lives!  With experimentation and persistence, we are discovering the immediate pay off for paying attention to Good by appreciating what is already flowing around us.

Ceci Calls for Help

Glance on the Camino, 9 x 12, SOLD

Ceci cries “I need your help. A string of “bad” things are happening for me and I don’t like it. I used to be so fortunate, What can I do?”

Ceci consults a wise friend, Frances.

Helper Frances Responds

Frances says, “You have heard the basics in other conversations with me. Let’s review them. You know that if lots of unwanted things are coming your way it indicates that you are often thinking about unwanted things. You are attracting the energy of what you put out. “

C: How do I turn this around?

F: You want to notice more and more what thoughts are running in your head. You want to notice your own mood. If you are feeling angry, troubled, upset, vengeful, all those states bring to your more of what you don’t want.

I know in your past you have had lots of things happen that were unfair, hurtful, troubling.  You also know that to change your NOW, you have to look for what you can appreciate and do that NOW, and Now and NOW.

Just this morning you have shared that a possible new and improved living arrangement has shown up for you. Isn’t that wonderful!

C: Yes and on the business front, I am just about to close a deal on use of a studio space that I need for several jobs that I have lined up. This transaction will be advantageous to me.

F: Isn’t it great! You are noticing and emphasizing that.

C: The people where I currently live have been actively hostile. I do not feel safe there.

F: For this to work, I recommend you keep your focus on what is going well. You have a habit to complain about various unwanted people and situations. Refocus right now on more of what is fortunate. Isn’t it wonderful that you had someone like me to call—that I took your call with no appointment.

C: Yes I have access now to a ski resort and slopes. Someone is paying for my pass. Normally the privileges I am enjoying cost $119!

I called my father and he was no help as usual. I had a car accident and my neck got disturbed after it was in good shape.

F: Stop right there, Ceci. Pause and notice the effect of the complaint about your Dad and accident. Isn’t it great that you are able to ski and have such a great place to do it today!

C: The sponsor for this ski access is trading with me for my photography services. This piece of the barter represents a really cool treat. Would you like to come use a hot tub up here?

F: Sweet offer—no thank you right now.  What else has gone well recently?

Momentum Builds

C: My body is coming along and feeling much better. My neck and back are remarkably improved. I now will have an affordable space for doing the portrait work for which I have clients contacting me. Portrait work is flowing and I satisfy many with pleasing results. My website is overflowing with examples!

F: You are doing some good practicing here. I think you now recall how it is done—how to appreciate and how to turn around what flows to you.

Shift Underway

C: I can feel a shift in me already. Thank you so much!

F; You can easily keep this up! You are on a roll!

They disconnected and each returned to the tasks of the  day.

About an hour later, Ceci texted F to report she felt so much better, is filled with vitality and optimism! Ceci thanks Frances again. We all know we each can do this for ourselves. It is all about on what we focus.

Do you want to share an example from your life of how you shifted your focus and got results? Please comment!
