This week I heard from three people who each have been dealing with challenging circumstances that have led them to nearly give up hope, or as one friend wrote,
“I have a topic that I would love to see covered in your blog. Over the past few months, I have noticed that what is happening to me in life is not going along with my thoughts and actions. There has been a lot of incredibly horrible things happening to me, and I’m trying to figure out why. I haven’t done anything that I can think of that would have lead me down the path that I went through. After everything I have gone through, I’m one shade above feeling hopeless. it used to feel like the world was mine to conquer, all i had to do is think and make it so. Now it’s almost like it takes a lot more thinking and thought processes to get things going. When they do start, it’s like I’m slammed back down to step one again and I have to struggle back up again. It keeps happening. These are not thoughts that I was having, just observations that I’m making.
My question is, is there something going on in the Universe right now that is making Reality Shifting much more difficult? Is there any advice you can give to any of us out here who are really struggling just to survive, or to even want to survive? I feel like an alien displaced from it’s planet or a fish out of water…this doesn’t feel right at all anymore.”
Right now in 2012 we are experiencing a great deal of “shadow issues” from our collective unconscious that create a lot of chaos. We see this in terms of current world issues, including economic and environmental crises. While there are amazing numbers of reality shifts occurring now, many people feel confused by difficult events and circumstances. Many people who’ve previously experienced success working with “law of attraction” ideas such as described in the movie The Secret are now hitting roadblocks and losing hope, wondering what they can do, if anything, to regain a sense of living a meaningful, prosperous life.
Any time you feel like a fish out of water, or that things aren’t quite right with the way your intentions play out in the physical world, I recommend starting with reviewing the six steps to attract what you most desire that I describe in chapter six of my book, Aura Advantage: How the Colors in Your Aura Can Help You Attain What You Desire and Attract Success. These provide an excellent road map for living a life of gracefully rewarding flow:
(2) Get out of your own way,
(3) Listen to your chakras / body,
(4) Expect what you most desire,
(5) Appreciate every moment, and
(6) Do something nice for someone.
There are four additional meditations I suggest for these rapidly-shifting times to get and stay focused on what you most desire even as shadow issues are arising all around. These four meditations can provide you with a jump-start to living a more prosperous life even in the midst of chaotic, challenging, troubling times so many of us are experiencing now in 2012:
Know You Are Loved
When you have a sense of being unconditionally loved and adored for who you are–for the eternal, infinite spirit and soul that you are, you feel a sense of intrinsic worth. Once consciously recognized, nothing can ever take that sense of worth from you, nor can any circumstances ever truly get in the way. Imagining and regaining a sense of direct connection to Oneness–to Divine Source–instantly provides you with a buoyant, open-minded, open-hearted attitude. Intending to be the best you can be brings best results, as does living in accordance with the belief that you are inspired, directed, and animated by your best possible self, guided forward with intuition intended to help you best select options you’ll be happiest with in the long term, that your future self knows you’ll be happiest with… rather than what you think you want today.
Breathe Deeply to Your Core
When stressed, most people breathe shallowly, losing access to their personal power, or Qi. You can regain a sense of energized, calm confidence, inner strength, and balance by becoming physically relaxed while breathing deeply to your second chakra–the area just below your belly button. You can locate this area by placing one hand on your stomach with the thumb on top, resting on your belly button, and the palm of your hand just below. Feel a sense of calmness in your core, taking several deep, slow, steady, relaxed breaths while relaxing all your muscles. Focus on breathing deeply, so you can see and feel your belly button rising and falling with each slow, steady breath.
Since thoughts and feelings are manifesting so quickly now, it’s especially important to retain a sense of everything being just fine, especially regarding past events. Just as you can imagine your best possible future self reaching back through time to guide you forward to make the best possible choices for the long run, so too can you imagine yourself reaching back through time and guiding your attention to realities in which you gained skills, deepened relationships, reached a state of flow from being in the moment doing what you love, felt a sense of purpose for your life, helped others, and achieved meaningful accomplishments. Making regular time for gratitude meditations, keeping a gratitude journal, and writing down each day what went especially well and how you played a meaningful role in that are ways you can develop gratitude.

One of the benefits of asking the question, “How good can it get?!” in every situation you find yourself in is that you’re likely to get some pretty wonderful answers.
