I believe that life offers every potential imaginable, and every potential that we cannot even imagine. This is why, in times of uncertainty, the place I try to put my mind is on an intention that has proved itself many times to be a beholder of magical qualities; to decide to ‘allow something better than I can imagine to occur’. This intention does not come without its challenges: there are haunting fears; some based on past evidence, others on self-created doubt and negativity that at times appear as the only truth! However, within the casting of such intentions, it does not seem to matter if I cast waves of fear and doubt, as long as I return to the choice to have faith in my surrender, and allow life to unfold in a way that will be positive and supportive of my dreams, and even better than I can imagine.
I am not saying that the intention will bring the dream to life, because the truth is, anything could happen! However, by making the choice to ‘allow something better than I can imagine to occur’ my experience of the moment is magical, positive and open to seeing the opportunities, possibilities, and wonders in life that a closed and fearful mind misses, and sometimes, dreams really do come true.
It seems to me that the supportive actions I take to try and ‘make’ my intentions happen do not always produce the wanted results. This only goes to show that I cannot control my world. However, as long as I keep coming back to making the choice to ‘allow something better than I can imagine to occur’, I have found several times in my life that the sum of my efforts produces a greater outcome that I could have foreseen. In the past, I would only speak of these matters after realising the manifestation. This time, I am in the process, and life is teaching me to let go of what I think should happen, how I think the path will unfold, and surrender illusionary control to the design on my life, to take a chance on life. My fears tempt me into inhibiting states of thinking, overflowing with fears and doubts, but, I am also learning that fear can be reduced to a tiny speck of paint on my finger nail, in the presence of the choice to have faith.
