When your beliefs agree that the sky is blue, you see the sky as blue. But what if, you had been taught that the sky was purple?
How you see the sky is through the lens of your own perception.
Sure we could hold debates on the actual color of the sky (after all, there is a color to the sky, and then what we CALL that color) because the Truth is, we each see it through our own perception of what shade of color becomes represented to us.
What is perception?
Perception is your own interpretation of something the mind sees or the body feels.
These interpretations were birthed throughout your childhood by those who held a position of authority or through influence.
For example, your parents are typically the first set of people who influence your world. Then you have your family, your peers, educators and possibly the biggest ones, the religious and government organizations. Typically, when one was told something you viewed it as ‘they must be right, as they are bigger, older or wiser than I.”
Maybe at the time this concept held great value.
However, in today’s modern culture most of what you have been taught or had pounded into your mind is useless to you now!!
We have already to begun to make our shift into a newer, higher states of awareness and consciousness.
Through this new awareness, we are each beginning to awaken to our greatness. It is through this awakening, that we begin to see that many of our preconceived perceptions were, in fact, placed upon you! You had no choice but to accept this is Truth! Today, we have choices and it is through these choices that we begin to shift our perception towards things which may be no longer helpful or beneficial to you.
When you shift your perception, your thought, belief or feeling about something, someone or someplace, your mind opens and is filled with the wonder of this new gift you’ve been offered to practice and experience with!
As you begin to shift your own, perception, you notice subtle or even dramatic changes in your life and also in those closest to you. How exciting and wonderful it is knowing that you hold the power, the key, right there within you, to make a difference in your own life.
Yet, there are many who roam the planet aimlessly, obliterated, to the wide variety of “illusions” that have manifested into their reality.
As your perception goes stronger, as it begins to place a stranglehold upon your life, then your “illusions” become your reality!
How many times have you thought or expressed, “If I only had more money…..then I could…..” or “there were more hours in the day, I, could accomplish……get my business started, or whatever story holds true for you.
How do you shift your perception?
It takes time, commitment and dedication to shift your perception.
One might think that it is merely easy to shift their inner conscious reality to something they wish, in lieu of something they don’t. The tragedy or challenge shows up when you try to use positive affirmations to affirm it away or play the ‘cause and effect” game. Yet, all things will remain the same no matter how hard you try to “correct” or “counterbalance” your perception.
The true opportunity to change your life by shifting your perception is to learn where you are at any given moment of time. It is from this powerful place of being in the moment, will show you what is necessary for you to shift your perception.
As you go through this process of transformation, it is important to remember to be kind, gently, loving and caring to your Self.
We all fall down, we all make mistakes….yet, by shifting your perception or judgment of how you did or didn’t do something, once recognized adds powerful medicine to add to your inner healing journey.
Take a look at all the “illusions” vs. “realities” in your life today.
Then begin to breath love into your heart center and watch it begin to radiate outwards from your inner sense of be-ing to match the vibration of those things within the outside world you desire.
Change Your Perception and watch as your Life Slowly begins to shift!!
