Where is Your Focus?
Written by: Melanie Groves; Metamorphosis Healing
A great deal of what people say, think, or do is actually motivated by fear, which of course is always linked with having your focus on the future and being out of touch with the Now. As there are no problems in the Now, there is no fear either. – Eckhart Tolle
Read that quote again. What do you think? I loved Eckhart Tolle’s book The Power of Now because it brings me back to the truth. I cannot control what has already happened and I cannot control the outcome of tomorrow. Now. Now is when the magic happens. Now is the only reality and so what I choose to do now, whether it be hit snooze, get up and meditate or go for a walk, all have an impact on my future certainly, and all are within my span of control right now.
In Huna the 3rd principle is Makia. Linked to the sacral energy center and the source of creation it tells us “Where your attention goes, creation flows. Be focused.” So in the now I can create my future based on what I am spending my energy on. In the example of my choices above, if I focus on “ugh, I am tired, Covid is still around, my kid had another seizure, [insert your story here]” the likelihood of getting out of bed for that walk is less likely.
Same wake up but instead I focus on, “I am awake and breathing so already that’s a great start, I have a comfy bed and fridge full of food and all my limbs work, and my kids are safely sleeping in their beds” is a much more likely way to get out of bed and keep those limbs limber with that walk. The world hasn’t changed, my focus simply has. By choosing to focus on the things that bring you joy, like a magnet, the energetic frequency of that joy attracts more for you to be joyful about.
Wayne Dyer said what you think about you bring about. If you’ve read the Secret this is called the Law of attraction. Try it. Next time you are on the road, make the intention to see green cars. Guess what? They’ll appear. Because you are training your brain to look for them. Your brain processes hundreds of thousands of thoughts in a day and it uses shortcuts to filter out what isn’t important. When you decide green cars are important your brain rewires to help “find” them. For what you tell your brain it believes to be true.
Re-wire your brain to look for the good this week. Focus on the good. Make a list of all the good that comes your way. Start by sinking into this 5 minute meditation for focus and watch what comes your way when you focus on the good.
