“Make more decisions in every day. Because a decision is a summoning of life. That’s why a little chaos is good for you, because often you don’t make a decision until you get yourself in a jam. And then, in the middle of the jam, you make a decision, but that decision summons Life Force. Have you ever been a place where you couldn’t quite make up your mind and you just felt sort of limp? ‘Oh, I don’t know. I don’t know. I don’t know.’ And then you decided, and you felt alive again. We want you to know that you’ll never get it done. So don’t approach this from, ‘I gotta get on this’ because you’re not ever going to get it done, anyway. And the other thing we want you to know is, you cannot get it wrong. So, make a decision. Let it flow.” ~Abraham-Hicks, Excerpted from Larkspur, CA on August 16, 1998
I recently received this email quote from my favorite mentor, Abraham-Hicks. What a glorious reason to make decisions!
When we make decisions it actually summons Life Force!
We are reassured that we never get it done and can never get it wrong. So, we can relax in our decisions and just keep making them with the intent of feeling good. We will feel alive and vibrant as we make decisions. That alone should encourage us to make our decisions all day, every day.
Growing up in my family, our religious beliefs were such that there are right and wrong decisions. That decisions could be made that would take us down a dangerous path to destruction. If we didn’t make the exactly right decision, we were in for great misery.
The fear associated with that kind of limiting and paralyzing belief, was destructive in and of itself! If you didn’t get a word from God and He told you what to do, you would be open and vulnerable to the power of the devil. They wanted us to believe that we were so weak and powerless that we really couldn’t make the right decisions for our own lives! We had to be told how to make our own decisions.
It was taught that God was the only one that had a plan for our lives. As if we were his puppets. And, if you missed your path you were doomed. Really?! That we had to have our decisions stamped by his approval. How disempowering is that?
I rarely use the term God when I’m talking about Infinite Intelligence or my Higher Power. That term just doesn’t resonate with me, because the limiting power that is associated with that term from my past. Even though I was taught that God was all-powerful, all-knowing, all-present, I was still taught that there was another power–albeit a lesser power–that I simply had to work hard and fight against lest I succumb to eternal death.
Wait! What?! You’re telling me God is all-powerful, yet you are telling me there another power in the works? They say they are mono-theistic–one God, one Force, one Power–yet if there are two powers fighting each other that is polytheism! Even if one power is greater than the other, it’s still polytheism!
And, please understand there is no Evil Life Force out to get you! Trying to dissuade you from good. The only reason for anything to feel uncomfortable or when you have bad feelings is because you have strayed from your alignment with your Inner Source Energy–your personal Life Force. Life Force is only and always flowing love towards us. It is our resistance to this flow and our resistance to receiving the love and allow it to flow through us–that is our bad feelings. All bad feelings–even to the point of abuse. It’s not some evil force we have to fight!
Fast forward to today. Now that I’ve come to my new understanding and beliefs of the Eternal, All-in-All Non-Physical Life Force, I realized that I’d been lied to all those years when I was taught that I am nothing, I am a worm, I am so unworthy and need to be saved from myself. When I learned that Source Energy–my new term for all eternal goodness–only sees me as perfectly lovely, pure positive energy and is only and always flowing love, appreciation, support and all good things to me 24/7/365 while I live in this body, unbelievable peace and calm swept over me. That I am actually an extension of Source Energy who simply made a decision to focus part of my non-physical energy towards this physical life, and the majority of my non-physical older, wiser, eternal part is still with Source Energy in the non-physical.
That initial decision to focus my attention on the physical, created my life! That decision summoned Life Force. And, here I am today! And, guess what? Here you are, too!! You made the same wonderful decision.
As we see things in this life that we don’t want, it gives us the opportunity to know exactly what we do want. Those decisions are constantly summoning Life Force. We know what we do want by how we think it will make us feel if we receive it. It feels good. We know we want to feel good and deciding to want one thing verses something else, summons Life Force. We actually become the very thing we want! We have created new life that has never existed before!
When we notice what we want is not present, we are focusing on the lack of what we want. And, that feels bad. It feels bad, because we are not keeping up with the new person we have just become. We are not keeping up with the Life Force we just summoned.
So, how do we get back on track to feeling good in the wanting of something pleasurable?
How do we keep up with the Life Force we just summoned?
How do we keep up with who we have become when we expanded into this new person?
We make more decisions!
When we hem-and-haw, weighing all the pros and cons it stifles our Life Force. It slows the creative expansion way down. It feels sluggish and disempowering. It makes us feel old and haggard. It saps the Life Force right out of us.
Of course, some decisions take time to make. There are gestation periods of making decisions, but when you come from the mindset of wanting to feel good, your decision-making process is made easier. When you are in alignment with who you really are and who you have become when you wanted something, your path is lit up to help you make your decisions.
Source is always shining light on your path–and there are multiple paths for you to choose. They are neither good or bad, right or wrong. When we are aligned in our thoughts about wanting to simply feel good, we will choose thoughts that are in alignment with how Source thinks about the same subject at the same time.
If you are in a place of feeling bad, you are just out of alignment with how Source views the subject at the same time. If you would reach for a better-feeling thought, you would align yourself and your path would light up! The decision you need to make will seem easy and pleasurable.
You cannot make a good-feeling decision from a point of feeling bad. If you are laboring over a decision, give it a rest. Distract yourself with some subject that brings you relief and peace and harmony. Once you are in that place of pure alignment and are in line with the thoughts of Source, then enter the arena of decision-making.
When you are happy and feeling good, that alignment is like a huge light switch. Your path is lit up and you see the choices before you. Any of them are good opportunities. Any of them are possibilities. You see things you appreciate in each choice. So, just make a decision! Congrats! You just summoned Life Force!
Be happy with the choice you made. You are now ripe for a new adventure! You can now move forward with happy thoughts regarding your decision, knowing that Life Force is supporting you, sending you love and appreciation, clarity and ease–just as it always does. You feel good. No, you feel great! There is great anticipation and excitement as you move forward. The next decision seems to be easier to make. And the next. And the next. But, only when you remain in the state of feeling good.
Don’t let yourself and your mind get sidetracked. When you feel yourself veering off the path of feeling good, make a decision to steer yourself back to good-feeling thoughts. See? Right there, you just summoned more Life Force!
Make a decision to be happy–summoning Life Force. Make a decision to feel good and make the decision to keep it your top priority–summoning Life Force. From your happy-place, decision-making isn’t near as difficult as we tend to make it. Realize that we will never get it done, because we are eternal beings. This isn’t our last rodeo!
Realize we will never get it wrong–there are always new choices to move us along the course of the our path. Always new opportunities.
There are always new decisions to make that will summon Life Force!
All is Well!
