Becoming a Conscious Co-Creator of Your Life

Becoming the Co-Creator of Your Life

By Lisa Young

Guest Writer for Wake Up World

Do you ever find yourself wondering why you  are really here on the earth?  Why did you come in as male instead of a female,  or a female instead of a male? And out of all the possibilities,  why did you find your way to a particular family?

Is it all random, or luck, or worse,  bad luck that you had no control over?  Or, is it part of a much larger brilliant Divine design  that YOU were a part of creating?

The answer can be life changing.

The first  answer can keep you locked in a place of fear  and powerless-ness because something outside of  you seems to have control over so much of you and your life.  You can only hope or pray for good things to happen…  The second  answer hands you LIFE  and, like a loving trusting parent, helps you create  your life  as you want and need it  to be, with support and guidance.  It trusts that you know what you most need.

Architect for the Soul

Imagine being an Architect for your Soul’s journey  before your birth and co- designing your life  with Divine assistance. You strategically place certain events,  opportunities and people on your path allowing you  the best possibility of moving into your  unique Soul Growth and Purpose.

The shift of one’s perspective (and belief) from  randomness, victimization or a limited definition  of Divinity/God that chooses everything for you,  to one of being a co-creator and partner of your life  with God/Spirit, is shape shifting and profound.

If  you  are co-creating every aspect of your life,  and always have, from before your birth,  you are empowered. You are a creator of your reality.  And with this understanding, life can become  more knowable, flexible and begins to align with  you.  Nothing is “done to you”. Nothing is by chance.  And all is possible.

Through expanding into the understanding that YOU  have the ability to change patterns, and limiting beliefs,  you can create new perceptions and new reality for yourself.  Places where you felt a victim, guilty, inadequate and  unworthy can shift into freedom and empowerment  over time as you take charge of your mind and thoughts.

The first step is opening to this understanding and  belief that YOU have this ability and power.

The second step is opening yourself to the tools and support  that resonate for you. Finding a style of meditation,  even if it is 5 minutes a day can begin to quiet an  overly busy, distracting (and distracted) mind, allowing you to explore the God force within.

Discovering music, chants, books, ideas, and guided meditations that speak to your Soul and uplift  you are key. Finding healing modalities and counseling  can bring you an entirely new experience of your life,  health and well being, by assisting you in your soul excavation – to discover and shift  roots of limiting beliefs, debilitating family and ancestral patterns.

Ask the Universe and Creator to bring you  support and assistance, and stay open to the way  it shows up for you. The book, person, healer, mentor, friend,  counselor or inspired idea may drop right in your lap  🙂

My Year of Living with Joy

I just read a very moving example of  creating your reality and your experience in  the face of what is often viewed as a terrible,  tragic event. A former high school classmate of mine,  Susan Spencer-Wendell, wrote a N.Y.Times bestseller  book after being diagnosed with Lou Gehrig’s disease  or ALS, for which western medicine has no cure yet.

Until I Say Goodbye : My Year of Living with Joy”  is her poignant story of her last year after deciding  that she was going to perceive her illness, and remaining  time on the earth, through a lens of gratitude and joy for each moment she had left.

In her “final, wonderful year”, as she called it, she took trips  she had always wanted to take with dear loved ones.  She typed her book on her iPad, and then as she lost ability  to use her hands except for a thumb, she typed the remainder  of her memoir with her right thumb on her iPhone.

I loved her story and her courage to share  it because it is such a powerful example of  how our perception, intention and thoughts can  change our experience of our life regardless of the situation.

And in doing so, we  impact and inspire countless others around us.
