On New Year’s Eve I watched our one and only firework we bought for $5.99 blow away the night sky with amazing sparks and sounds. I thought, “wow this is incredible! It’s more than I imagined from such a small package”.
It goes along with what I’ve been thinking that all that’s gold doesn’t glitter and how things are so ready to entice us into thinking they are.
I was thinking if I wanted to convince someone to come around to my way of thinking, I would likely try to put the fear in them that if they didn’t do (A) then this (B) is what would happen.
Ya know? Like Pavlov.
With addiction, threats and punishment doesn’t seem to create the desired result.
In fact, nothing seems to work. This creates a Petri dish of fear that breeds in it’s own bacteria causing more and more of the same.
If I were fear I would take away your clarity.
If I were fear, I'd take away your passion.
If I were fear I'd make you think there was no hope.
If I were fear I'd find every way possibly for you to say, "Why try?"
If I were fear, I'd push people away who have the ability to help, but not the knowledge.
If I were fear, I'd place every obstacle in your path.
If I were fear, i'd make you think you were not loved or lovable.
If I were fear, I'd make sure you felt crazy enough to not talk to people who care.
If I were fear, my ultimate goal would be to control your thoughts, feelings and actions.
Because if I can control just one little thought and keep it inside your head long enough, then I control YOU!
Hello my name is fear, nice to meet you.
I remember when I was a young mother and I became frustrated with my surroundings, I used to tell myself to do the opposite of what I thought. I figured if what I was doing wasn’t working then I needed to try something else. What I didn’t know then, was that was the power of intention’s tiny seeds being planted and sown.
With the New Year week just starting, one of my intentions is to not feed into this Petri dish. As a nurse, I’ve been trained to nip infections in the bud or to not let them start.
So I’m going to feed my Petri dish good things to grow.
Intentions of kindness
Intentions of acceptance
Intentions of love
Intentions of understanding.
Wayne Dyer was the king of intentions.
If your past Petri dish has not grown what you thought it would maybe it’s time to change what you put in it.
May we all have the courage to change our trajectory of creation.
