Each week I take question off my Facebook Page to answer here in this column.
If you have a question for spirit, you are welcome to post it here or on my Facebook wall.
This week Melanie M writes: I have a pretty successful life but I am not “fulfilled”. Sometimes I wonder why go on. What can I do???
We often get caught up thinking that we are successful and have made it when we are making a lot of money.
However our soul has a different set of standards to measure a successful journey here that don’t have any thing to do with money.
With the advent of the Internet and the multitude of shopping sites at our disposal, we may find ourselves utilizing a feature called Wish Lists.
As we shop away, we may add those material things to our account’s wish list so that ourselves and others will know what we desire for upcoming occasions.
However, material things in a material world are but one tiny aspect of what is available to us to wish for.
Relationship harmony, finding romance and love, self mastery, peace from past pains, and experiencing joy and happiness are but a few lasting gifts with which we can add to our divine wish list.
Just as one can login to a website account and access those electronic features called a wish list, we can do so in a divine fashion as well.
Creating A Divine Wishlist
We can literally create a wish list in our God/Goddess account, so to speak. Each of us has a spirit, a unique account within the divine.
It has all the features of an Internet account as well. The divine knows our name, where we live, and what we wish for in each and every moment, just like an Internet account.
Whether we realize it or not, we are constantly adding and removing items from our divine wish list. Just like an Internet wish list, we may eventually receive those wished for items through some sort of exchange in currency through ourselves or others.
Being aware of this divine feature in life can give us clues as to why we are receiving what we experience in each moment of our daily lives.
We do these wishings for ourselves and for others constantly throughout the day.
If we are experiencing negative results, this can give us a hint as to what we are wishing for, what we are thinking about ourselves and others.
What we wish for others and what we believe of ourselves is what we get back in return, essentially affecting what our wish list gives back to us. In recognizing this, we can utilize our wish list as a feedback system, allowing us to literally change what we are experiencing.
We also utilize a divine currency that assists us in purchasing those wishlist items for ourselves and others. Just like in the material world, different currency has different value, in the divine the greatest being unconditional love.
What Are We Paying To The Divine Every Day?
Do we pay with worry, fear, distrust, and pain, or faith, trust, hope, and love? The quality with which we pay into our divine account gives us the exact currency that manifests those results we experience. In a most basic explanation, if we pay with negative, we will receive negative. Likewise, if we pay positively, we will receive positively.
Trust, faith, love, and hope can be adopted as the currency we choose to pay into our divine accounts. Doing so allows us to build a credit with the divine, so to speak. Gratitude and appreciation for what we have in our lives is another form of payment the divine accepts quite dearly.
Using these principles in our lives can assist us in managing our wish list. Practicing these methods may bring about changes in ourselves and others, essentially changing what we wish for in each moment. By managing our divine account in this manner, we may begin to experience a shift in what we see manifesting in the physical world.
Looking at our spiritual nature and our relationship to the divine in different ways can help us to learn from a perspective of today’s times, a possible more recognizable method. Getting from A to B within our spiritual growth should not be limited by any one viewpoint or avenue. Thinking of our lives as a constantly changing wishlist with a currency being exchanged in each moment is but one of countless ways we can expand our own divine nature.
With that said, never stop recognizing what our wishes are, as that practice can serve us well. Also, honor ourselves and others by constantly refining the divine currency we offer to the world. Unconditional love is the foundation for it all, and the template for our greatest wishes to be realized.
