    This simple statement is a testament of how many energies interact with each other. It is related to the idea of attraction. Also it is related to conscious or unconscious creation.

    I have a younger woman presently staying with me who often obsesses about her fears and what’s wrong in her life. I’ve shared with her what results from such a focus but that doesn’t matter. Her focus and thoughts are primarily externally driven. She is simply unable to perceive that she is truly the creator of her life due to her feelings and thoughts.

    The mind that is obsessed is a powerful creator of one’s experiences. Though I have continually explained to her what she’s creating and how through her obsessed feelings and thoughts and why her life is showing up as it does she can’t make that connection.

    Presently her primary obsession is proving what someone said about her is wrong. She needs to have this person change their thoughts. Strong needs are definite ingredients involved in the idea of what you resist persists. Due to placing such strong importance on a thought or opinion of someone else, which in part defines who she thinks she is, she has unconsciously locked herself into a self image that is controlled by others.

    I’ve suggested to her that only when she tires of this kind of personal identity will she be able move past it. One of the interesting things about how we use energies unconsciously is that we are almost completely oblivious of their power.

    I love that you try to make her “see”. I know what you mean when you say; ” I continually explained to her what she’s creating and how through her obsessed feelings and thoughts and why her life is showing up as it does she can’t make that connection.”

    I try to do the same with my daughters when they get trapped in their conditioned minds and I want to help them. I do not think they understand what I am saying….lol….just mummy with her weird ideas. It is “outside their boxes” 🙂 Later perhaps when they have matured, and gone through some own suffering, they might. But also..some are just not interested and we can not do much about it. true :).

    I also wonder what´s in it for us, this experience of trying to get them to “see”, since Eckhart says;

    “Life will give you whatever experience is most helpful for the evolution of your consciousness. How do you know this is the experience you need? Because this is the experience you are having at the moment.”

    — Eckhart Tolle

    Any suggestion?

    Hi Catrin,

    I have also told her I am thankful for the opportunity she offers by her being here. She has reminded me of many things. One is, how a majority of people function each day. Another is functionality based on externals. She is a treasure trove of reminders.

    One more thing she has reminded me of is the Perfection of each persons experience. To completely Trust in that. Actually whatever she remembers is of no concern to me. I do what I do as it is simply who and what I am.

    Your daughters will Remember in their own Perfect time and Perfect ways. Just as we all did. In the meantime all we can seek to Be is increasingly conscious by recognizing and using the gifts within all things. Being a living beathing example of consciousness Arising is the best gift you can your daughters.

    Peace with Love,
