Who Or What Is In Charge Of Your Circumstances?

“From the beginning of time humans have asked,  ‘who is running the show?’ From the beginning, people have sought answers and answers have been forthcoming. Not everyone appreciates the answers, nor do all agree. Some think it is determined from outside.

That luck, god, nature or the universe determines what comes your way. Perhaps, they are correct. It could be possible. What isn’t answered, or addressed, in this query is, what part do you play? Do you have a role in making things happen?  If so, how much of a role?

Some will say 100%. Some give a variety of other answers. One thing is certain. Whether you, or someone else creates your circumstances, whether you react, or respond, IS 100% up to you. How you negotiate, navigate and weather circumstances is all you.

Perception Is Everything – Perception Makes It So 

Given that your response determines what you do with what you have been presented, I share this thought with you. James Allen authored a very wonderful book titled. ‘As A Man Thinketh’. It is worth reading if you haven’t. It is worth reading again and again.

James Allen, reminds us that our minds are like a garden  which we can wisely and intelligently cultivate, or allow to run wild. It brings forth either way. Seeds grow. Results come forth. Some things will happen. Nothing, will not happen. The garden will grow!

Our minds grow whatever seeds are planted. Plant a positive seed, and that will grow. Plant a negative one, and that will grow. The mind is the growing medium and doesn’t care which type of seed is planted. How you respond to circumstances is your responsibility.

What You Say To Yourself And Others Is What You Manifest

If you respond positively, you have the opportunity to influence circumstances or adjust yourself as need be. You can overcome all sorts of difficulty, if you believe you can. You get back more of whatever you focus on . It expands. ‘I can’, expands as does, ‘I can’t.’

Whether you create all of your circumstances or something else does, you alone are accountable, and responsible, for what you end up doing as a result. All of the power is in you. If you make excuses, whine, complain and blame others you miss the power. You lose.

You won’t notice you have power because you distract yourself by placing the emphasis elsewhere. Energy flows where attention goes. We become what we think about. Champion or loser, victor or victim? It is all in what you think, and what you focus on, most often.

Speak Only To Bless Heal Prosper Inspire Motivate And Transform

The choice is always yours. Don’t ask who is responsible for circumstances, but how quickly, and easily, you can discover your resources, and be a victor no matter what comes your way. Ask yourself how easily you can be positive. Focus on what you want.

Place your focus on the positive and you become more of it. When you choose to consider everything a blessing, everything becomes one, even if it doesn’t appear that way at first. Learn how to celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

If You Play The Victim Your Choices Are Limited!

“Things happen. Shit happens, or at least things happen that we don’t want. Perhaps, they are all good, we just don’t think so. That is a possibility. BUT, let’s assume bad things happen. How do you get the upper hand and make things better? Do you want to know?

Two choices:  You are a victim of circumstance and feel that things happen to you. Sometimes you are lucky, sometimes not. OR you are the victor. You determine what happens. You learn and benefit from everything. Challenges present opportunities. Even bad is good.

If you play the victim role your choices are limited. Whether or not you are actually responsible, if you act as if you are, you have more choices available to you, as a victor. That is an important distinction between a winning mindset and one that is not.

If You Think You Can Or You Think You Can’t You Are Right

Apart from that, let’s say no, you have no responsibility for life’s obstacles, but you either react as you always have from conditioned responses, or you learn how to respond differently and more resourcefully. Either you’re a habitual robot or you’re a chooser!

This is a potential choice you have. Whether you are able to see this or not, whether you are ready to choose or not is part of where you are in life’s journey. You can lead a horse to water but you cannot make the horse drink. When ready you can. If not, you won’t.

It is our choice whether we make the choice or not. How we view and interact with the world is due mostly, if not all, to the mental maps we have in our head. If we view the world as a friendly place or not. Whether we think we are resourceful or not. It’s our maps.

What You Think And Talk About Most You Bring About 

Whether things happen to us or whether they are partly, or all, our creation is due to what we think it is. More and more we are learning how much we actually create our reality. AND EVEN IF WE DIDN’T or DON’T how we respond or react is the important factor! Get it?

If you want to respond better and have a better life THERE ARE important things you can do and believe that make an incredible difference. You need to learn how to manage your mindset and make your life wonderful. This is a choice you have right now you can make! Stop delaying and start acting positively in your own behalf. Celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

Stop Tolerating Abuses!

“Unless you want a Jesus like conclusion, I am not saying love your captors or stay with abusers. To let go and accept, love and forgive doesn’t mean you can’t seek safety. Don’t allow your comfort zone for the negative  to hold you in place when you should leave.

Yes, you can love, and forgive your tormenter but you don’t have to be within the proximity of the person/s to do so. You can get free, be free, and then resolve it within yourself. Forgiveness and acceptance isn’t about letting anyone other than you off the hook. Get it?

Make sure you are safe. I’m most certain your mission is not Jesus like.  So when you need to be safe, secure, and protected, seek safety, security and protection. Letting go letting god, and accepting doesn’t mean you tolerate or endure abuses. Get it? If you are, stop.

Seeking The Highest Means Accepting The Lowest But Safely

It means you transform your mental, emotional and spiritual experience. Always seek the higher road, the highest self, the most positive options that result in yours, and others greater, well being, success, happiness and peace. Transform yourself to find the lesson.

Find the blessing and be grateful for the opportunity to learn and grow, but from a place of safety when necessary. Use wisdom and be wise. Be smart. Do not be a victim. Do not tolerate abuse of yourself or others. Find the positive and legal remedies when necessary.

Seek wise and positive counsel, not vengeful or negative. What you resist persist. So do the inner work of letting go, trusting and surrendering, without sacrificing your physical well-being or that of your family, friends or strangers. Live from your higher self.  DO you understand? Be grateful. Celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

Awareness, Circumstances, Transformation, And You!

“If it were easy, everyone would be doing it. Whether by intention or not. Trying circumstances can be used to further your sleep or wake you up. They are catalysts for profound change if you are aware. All times, can be used to further awareness if you choose. It’s up to you.

It is only up to you whether you choose to awaken or slumber longer. Events are whatever we judge them to be. They are nothing in and of themselves. Earthquakes and forest fires weren’t bad prior to people deciding them so. They just were. We, and circumstances, just are.

Consciousness is a deciding factor. Awareness is an opening for more awareness. Anything can be, or can be used as a catalyst, purposefully, or inadvertently. What you do with it, is what you do with it in your journey. You are the deciding factor how things are.

Exploration Is The Doorway To Adventure – Awareness The Key

Be grateful for all. Everything is a blessing. Once you understand that, all IS a blessing. Live with gratitude for each moment. Allow the moments to unfold. Whatever happens, everything will ultimately work out for the best. Keep the faith. Celebrate everything.” Rex Sikes

A Rut Differs From A Grave Only In Depth

“You are either expanding or contracting. You either experience increase or decrease. A plant is either growing or dying. If you aren’t moving forward, if you are stuck in a rut, then it is not much different than a grave. You are standing still, contracting, dying a slow death.

If, however, you are attempting to better yourself, learn more, enjoy more and live more, you are moving forward by these efforts. The more yourself you devote to improving yourself and your situation the more alive you will feel. The more you can accomplish.

If you’re doing nothing, expect nothing. Nothing will change for you. Many people are the walking working dead. They do the same thing day after day and are just okay. Is this you? BUT If you’re investing in yourself you have the opportunity to get fabulous results.

Standing Still Is Much Harder Than Moving – Try It – You’ll See

If you aren’t moving you aren’t just standing still. You are going backwards! If you are letting blocks and challenges and limiting beliefs prevent you from living fully and celebrating all of life then you’re contracting and need to make some immediate changes!

Stop tolerating life. Stop being okay! Start thriving. Start delighting and living each moment to the fullest. Stop doing the same things everyday. Start doing new things that fulfill you. Change. Learn. Invest in your own well-being. Make your life count! Enjoy it!

Don’t get to the end of your days and regret. Start living life now no matter your age. Create your best life ever! Don’t wait until it’s too late. Make the difference for yourself that makes the difference for yourself! Find your inner power and wisdom. Locate your inner bliss today and begin to celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

How To Live Free Of Energy Vampires

“Never let wrongdoers spoil you day or your mood. Rise above the fray. Remain untouched while fighting for a better way. Never fall to their level. It only harms you and does little to affect them. Don’t fight fire with fire. Light doesn’t drive out darkness it just is light.

Love instead of hate. Take the higher road. Live stress free. Stop being distracted by news and media. There is far more good than not so good. Don’t get caught up. When you get caught up, distracted or predominantly negative you give away your power.

Power comes from within, not from without. Seek higher self. Seek higher counsel. Seek love and light. Stay optimistic. Keep the faith in what you can positively accomplish to bring good about. Don’t get caught in circumstances, events and energy vampires. Rise above!

Skill Comes Of Doing – The More You Do The More You Can Do

Live, love, laugh and learn from everything. All adversity contains seeds of learning and opportunity. You have to look. One door closes another opens. You decide how you live. You decide what your experience will be. You either react like knee jerk or you respond.

Fill your mind with positive and inspiring material. Hang out with optimistic, positive, good people. Listen to inspiring, motivational audios. Attend workshops where other high vibe people are. Speak only to bless, heal, prosper, inspire and motivate. Create good!

Responding is from choice and from you higher self and from power. So be grateful. Fill yourself with light. Meditate. Let go. Seek peace and joy. Allow peace and light to fill you. Receive. Be thankful. Consider everything a blessing. Celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

Do This When Things Don’t Go Your Way

“Hey, it happens. People let you down. They don’t show up. They may break their promises. Events are cancelled. Less than glorious circumstances occur. People may lie, cheat or steal. What to do it? Most people get angry, frustrated, sad or want revenge. Do you?

It is natural. Especially depending on how and where you were raised. Bad things happen and we get disappointed and mad. We get consumed with negative thoughts. We think how it is unfair, shouldn’t happened or could have been otherwise. We obsess.

If you find yourself doing any of these it is natural. It is reacting from prior past conditioning. It is automatic and habitual. This is what you have done before so you do it again. The circumstances or people may change but the reaction is pretty much the same. Same ole stuff.

You Are Right Now Where Your Thoughts Have Brought You

However, you don’t have to do this again. You can change it. You can decide to be different and choose to respond instead of react. You can be in charge instead of a victim. You CAN change everything in an instant by changing what you choose to think and focus on.

Instantly! You can change the meaning of any event by changing what you think about. That said, learning to choose to think differently may take a little time but if you never start doing it a new way you will always be stuck doing it the old way. Get it? Change it!

It requires awareness. You must become aware you are going down the old pathway and must will yourself to think and feel and act differently. If you think this suck you must change it you something else. If you don’t you will just feel the same old way you always have.

You Will Be Tomorrow Where Your Present Thoughts Take You

You can realize that you don’t know everything and that while things didn’t pan out how you had hoped perhaps there is a lesson or some other good to come of it. Someone lets you down. You can be angry and blame or you can choose to examine why it matters so much.

You can explore how you might feel different. You might look for whatever other good could possibly come from this. After all you determine whether it is a problem or not. If you choose to look at it as a blessing instead then it isn’t a problem. It is your choice.

BUT you exclaim, it doesn’t seem like a choice. It seems like hard work. YUP it is whatever you declare it to be. You will always live from your filters, what you think and tell yourself and what you believe things to be. To change you must change these things.

Learn To Manage Your Thoughts Because You Can’t Escape Them

So yes, it takes some work. Just a getting physically fit takes some work. It is up to you. Stay the same or become new. Your choices, your decisions determine exactly what you get from life’s influences. You either fight it or go with the flow. You either feel bad or good.

Every moment it is your choice. The key to transformation is laying the ground work. Doing what may be difficult long enough until it becomes easy. If you want something  you will find a way to do it. If not you will find excuses and stay the same. What will you do now?

Begin to consider what positive steps you can take to think and feel differently? How might this be beneficial? How good will you feel when you discover the hidden blessing? Where else might you positively put your attention to begin to feel better? Ask yourself!

What We Want To Do With Ease We Must First Do With Diligence

Direct your mind, feelings, words and behaviors. STOP immediately and reframe it. Tell yourself a different story. Manage your self-talk and negative imagining. Stop feeling the victim and choose to be the victor. Look for the positive, the good and emphasize these now!

It is completely up to you. Choose to be different. Choose to think and feel differently. Set the intention. Make the decision. That is the beginning of your transformation. It won’t ever happen unless you do it. Focus on the good. Stop making it a problem. Look for what there is to be grateful for instead. Take positive steps to think and feel better. Consider it a blessing. Celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes
