Loss Can Be The Catalyst That Creates Your Life

Loss Can Be The Catalyst That Creates Your Best Life

We give our experiences in life an emotional identity.

It took me time to understand that.

The events in our lives are truly neutral, it’s our thoughts that give it the powerful emotion that we connect with the experience. The event or circumstance has no meaning until we give it meaning and every event and circumstance in our life you have the power to attach positive thinking and meaning to.

I know that some of you are thinking, that’s cr*p.

Truthfully to create your best life you have to be responsible for your experiences!

Watch this video and see the power of putting time between an event and the thought or meaning you give it.

We are not always responsible for the events in our life, but we are always responsible for our view of the experience. Each experience we choose how we view it. Often we accept the thoughts that have formulated from our past experiences as fact.

I remember saying, “I can’t believe this happened to me,” over and over again after my daughter died. I didn’t understand there was a place inside mw where I got to choose my view of the experience.

When we raise our awareness of these thoughts and change them we are taking control of our life.

We move from being a victim of our past to being responsible for our life. Here is where the loss or challenging event can be the catalyst that moves us forward to create and live a life without limits!

To create your best life begin with your thoughts. Ask yourself, “How do I view my most challenging life events?”

It’s this shift in thinking that is required to take control of our lives to move past the pain, grief, guilt,  emotions that we are holding onto from our past experiences.

We would love to hear your thoughts. Leave us a comment below and as always feel free to share this post with your family and friends.

Having Faith That Any Loss Can Be The Catalyst That Creates Your Best Life

life is a journey - positive thoughts

Faith is a journey that comes with the journey of life.

With each lesson and experience we have a choice to deepen our faith or be bound by disempowerment or fear.

We give our experiences in life an emotional identity.

We can choose to embrace positive thinking in every situation.

It took me time to understand that.

That the events in our lives are truly neutral, that our thoughts are what give it the powerful emotion that we connect with the experience. The event or circumstance has no meaning until we give it meaning and every event and circumstance in our life you have the power to attach positive thinking and meaning to.

I know that some of you are thinking, that’s cr*p.

Not many people knew about my second child. Her life and death was really something I kept hidden. For years she was my silent secret child. It’s because I had attached strong negative emotions to her death. I remember saying, “how can this happen to me?”

I felt guilty that I hadn’t protected her “well enough.” I kept silently telling her over and over, “I’m sorry.”

There can be a destruction that loss can leave. Whether the loss is death, divorce, serious illness, loss of a job, or loss of innocence.

The destruction that loss can leave can be the catalyst that creates your life!

It was up to me to take the event and use it as a catalyst to learn and create the life I wanted. The truth is, I attached, guilt, victim and negative thoughts to her death.

It was up to me to, #1 want to change the emotions and then, #2 have the courage to change.

Lets face it anytime we get used to an idea, emotion, or experience we get comfortable and it takes courage to move out of the comfort zone no matter what we are holding on to.

A great example is when we hold onto relationships that aren’t good for us, but they become comfortable. I had a relationship with my daughter even though she was not here physically. It wasn’t a good one but I was comfortable with it.

It took work to let those feelings rise back up and to feel them. It hurt to bring emotions back to the surface, but here is where I could give them a new thought, create positive thinking and a new identity.  Here is where I could let go of the grief, guilt, and victim feelings and bring in some gratitude.

This is where faith is part of our journey. It’s so much harder to forgive yourself and change your thoughts when there is no faith. Without faith you are left with the thought that life is full of random events.

Faith gives you a feeling that the events in your life have purpose. With faith it’s easier to take the experience and be grateful for lessons that the experience offers.

This is where we all have the choice do we take the “leap of faith,” or do we allow the circumstance, or events define us. We would love to help you explore your feelings and help you create positive thoughts from your past experiences.
