Things happen, you have a past. Some of the things in the past you think about and smile. Some bring forth emotions that hold you in a place that is painful and unpleasant. What is the power of these past memories? How do they affect your now?
That depends on what you do with those memories. If you take a different look at how experiences benefit you the past can be very helpful. At some point in life you’ve touched a hot stove or a candle. What did you learn from that uncomfortable experience? You learned not to do it that way again. You realized that candle flame and stove heat could be painful and useful at the same time. The candle can light a dark room, the stove can cook you delicious meals. You didn’t stay stuck in the painful memory of being burned, you learned from it and put the experience to good use.
Take that same principle with all the other painful things in your past. You now know what actions you took that did not work the way you wanted them to. You can use that information to take a different path next time.
When you are tempted to look backwards rather than move forward in life, take into consideration what the past taught you about yourself and your choices. What were the thoughts and feelings going on that led to that choice? Do you see how the energy is connected? Fear thoughts and choices create with that energy. Desperation creates with the energy of desperation. Love and hope create with the energy of love and hope. The energy of the creation will always match the energy used to create with.
Trying to create the experience of abundance with the energy of lack will always brings about abundance of lack. That’s the way creative principle, law of attraction, works.
Look at what you’ve created, realize the why of it and then move forward to a new kind of energy. Remember, if you can create anything, you can create anything else. There are always endless possibilities waiting for your attention. By learning from the past, you are free to move into the now and follow that to the new future.
I’d love to hear what you think about this topic. Leave a comment about how the past has helped you to discover where you want to go and what you want to create.
