This one question changed everything (once I started applying it liberally in my world). This one question released my default response and granted me the capacity to switch from reacting to responding to the world around me. It enhanced my power to create a world more aligned with my true self and experience everyday blessings and joy.
I came across this question in a friend’s Facebook group earlier this week. I responded on the spot. It wasn't always that way. Not that long ago, I did not have access to the centered clarity that is now my day-to-day experience. I attribute it all to this question:
What possibilities would you love to see made real for our world?
This question is a high-frequency tool. It shifts your focus from the problems you're experiencing to the possibilities nestled deeply within them. It helps you exercise the muscle of choice thereby changing the course of your pathway and providing new landscapes for you to explore. You come to realize there are infinite pathways and you are always at choice. You co-create your world more and more.
In shifting your focus from your smaller self (the one preoccupied with problems) you step into your vastest self (the creatrix/creator who visions). Here you encounter the power to shift problems into possibilities and bring them into being.
When I first set out on the transformation adventure I had no clue I would wind up here. These are the possibilities made real in my world that I posted on my friend's FB Group:
Here's the back story. My early programming showed me something very different:
- People you love will hurt you. Keep the circle safe and small.
- Don't rely on anyone. You will be abandoned sooner or later.
- You're too sensitive. It's safer to shut down and disconnect.
- Love is earned. You're only as good as your last win. Keep winning.
The pain and problems were turned into beautiful possibilities with this one question. I've used it as my default response: What possibility is present? How can this be a blessing and not a burden?
When you turn your pain into a possibility it changes you, and thus, the world. It also gives rise to wondrous surprises and untold joy. What possibilities would you love to see made real for our world? I'd love to know.
