Welcome Readers! These posts provide illustrations of how we can use our awareness, our thought and emotion, to create new more satisfying experiences.
Yes we have the power to change habits of thought, hereby feeling lighter and more free. As we shift, we attract more of what we want, sometimes sooner rather than later. Below read about one example to see how it can work.
Story of Lyra
Lyra has enjoyed a partnership with Kyle for more than a decade. At times L has been filled with jealousy when K has developed a friendship with another woman.
In that jealousy state of mind, L feels rejected, unworthy, and in pain. Many of us have experienced that emotion. It includes elements of hurt and anger.
But wait! We can bring to us what we want. How do we turn jealousy around? (Note we take responsibility for what we feel. We are not “trying to change” the other from some provocative behavior.)
What needs healing is how we feel about ourselves—and we know how to heal! Bit by bit we can notice and value our strengths. Those on this path can spend time each morning tuning into what makes us intrinsically loveable—like the way love flows out to a newborn.
Let’s let this process take the time it takes.
For more than a few years Lyra had been embarked on such a journey of feeling better and better about herself, of inner strength building. As our heroine feels more empowered, she challenges herself to create situations where she felt playful and appreciated.
L fantasized as she heard Kyle speaking to this new friend on the phone, “Wouldn’t it be neat if I enjoyed that woman too! Look at me I have so much wisdom to share with this younger woman. There is a win-win possible: I see it!”
As is the case with practiced habits of thought, Lyra noticed the troubled feeling rising in her after an interaction with Kyle. More awake to her jealous trigger than ever, she went to bed declaring she wanted to soothe her upset and to envision both she and K flourishing and happy. L prayed for help to make the change.
Change Starts to Show Results
Lyra was moving from jealousy to friendliness and generosity. Next day, our star, feeling loving and free, had a quality conversation with K. Feeling good together, the two created a more intimate atmosphere, both delighted in the chance to tell each other their dreams. L had begun her process of feeling more affection for herself and then this communication brought more of it to her. She felt loved and supported!
Experiencing new positive flow, Lyra stopped at a nursery to select some additions to her prolific garden. As she was shopping L realized, “I have created the circumstances provoking my jealousy and I can change what I envision!”
In mere hours, the “other woman” contacted L for a walk. This person wanted to get to know Lyra better. L wanted that contact and presto change there it happened.
The inner work shifting her perspective was paying off and so quickly! L had a great talk with the new friend, both enjoying enormously. Lara shared wisdom, and her companion soaked it up! Lyra felt elated!
