How often have you heard it said, that if we want to create a positive change in our lives, we need to create a shift in our perspective. What is perspective? Perspective is the way in which we view our surroundings, the people in our lives and the way we think about ourselves.
We did not just wake up one morning, with a perception. It has grown and evolved over time. Everything that has happened to us to date, colours our perception of the world around us. Our likes and dislikes, our self belief and what we see as our strengths and limitations.
But I want you to consider for a moment, just how accurate are we in our own self assessment? So many of us are so lacking in confidence, can we be truly unbiased. Our friends and family often have more confidence and faith in us, then we do.
Is it fair to limit yourself to what you believe is true about You! In reality, you have no idea, what your real potential is do you? Or what you are capable of doing or becoming. The truth is, non of us are, until we try. I am sure we have all at some point in our lives, tried something new, and found to our surprise, that we were actually good at it. What a shock! But what a pleasure! This is just one aspect of perception, the perception you have about yourself. Now lets look at life.
When we are sad, feeling unwell or vulnerable. The world can seem a grey and frightening place to be. The world looms large and nosily in front of you. Yet, if you could find just one thing, one small example of beauty, love and kindness, you would see how the world can tilt and change. Things seem lighter, warmer, more colourful, and safe. Just one thing, can make this difference. When you find one thing, look for another, and another.
Going within, finding stillness and peace, can also create a change in your perception. No matter how the world on the outside appears to us, if inside, there is turmoil, doubt and constant mental chatter, it is hard to focus on anything. Meditation, or simply relaxing with your eyes closed to some beautiful music, can be the start of a inner shift.
If you stop worrying for one second, the world will not cease to spin, and no one will get hurt. Give yourself permission, to let go. Surrender to life and accept things as they happen. Believe that in some way, it has a meaning a purpose, even if at this point in time you cannot see or understand what it is. Simply doing this can be so liberating.
To create a shift in your perspective, in your life, requires you to let go of the belief, that your thoughts, idea’s about who you are and the world around you, are set in stone. Let go of the chains that tie you to previous experiences, especially if they have been negative ones. Let go of judgments and expectations. Be open, expect the unexpected, and welcome it. I would love to hear your thoughts on this.
Love and light
