On a daily basis, as I am reading for my clients, I see abject hopelessness. I find myself reiterating points, defending prior readings and deflecting personal attacks all in the name of convincing this client that what I said not only can, but will, happen. I’m glad to report that this does not happen with very many of my clients. So many are hope-full, joyous, and downright wonderful. However, I do have at least one client a day that is completely hopeless.
If you do not believe that something can happen, you are essentially slamming every door of possibility. If you run down this list of reasons why something can’t happen, you’re just sending out an Order Form to the Universe saying, “Please don’t make this happen. I can’t believe it will happen so don’t send it!”. Just because something hasn’t happened yet, or you can’t see proof that it’s coming does not mean it never will. For things to happen, we have to believe and allow them to happen. Period. No matter what. No exceptions. Faith in the things unseen is not easy. However, it’s essential for new things to come into your life.
Being hopeless doesn’t hurt anyone but you. By feeling hopeless, you are keeping the things you say you want away from you. By telling the stories over and over to anyone who will listen, you are keeping it away from you. By feeling all those bad feelings and anger, you are keeping it away from you. If you want something to happen, you have to have at least a shred of hope. You are the one choosing to make your path easy or hard.
For today, let’s look at where we feel hopeless. Why is it that way? Why does it keep happening? what thoughts and words can we change to start to change that feeling? Hopelessness is self induced. You’re the only one who can go from hopeless to hopeful.
