Yes, it’s true. We are powerful creators of our own reality. It is also true that we were created by a higher power and this higher power lives within each one of us. Therefore technically, we are co-creators in this life.
As co-creators it’s important that we only act when necessary and we step back and allow when appropriate.
For example, think of a garden…
We plant a seed, fertilize the soil, water it, pull out and life sapping weeds that sprout up, and then we step away and simply allow it to grow on its own.
So why don’t most people do this with their ideals in life?
Basically, I think it’s because most of us were never taught to understand and properly use the power of the mind to co-create our life.
We have a basic understanding of how seeds and plants work at a young age, but we grow into adults still not knowing exactly how ideas, goals, and co-creation work.
Since most of us don’t understand how it works, we tend to do things in the wrong way or in the wrong order.
You would never want to over water a seed or you would kill it, yet people over water their ideas which are non-physical seeds in the mind and the ideas never had a chance.
You would never wait until too many weeds grow in your garden before you plant the seed, yet so many people let mental weeds build up in their mind and then try planting a new idea in a harmful environment.
You would never plant a seed today and then go frantically digging in the dirt tomorrow screaming “WHERE IS IT!?”. Yet, we see people doing that with their ideas, dreams, and goals all the time.
Tips for success:
1) Understand the co-creative process.
2) Allow your your idea to flourish without overthinking and over analyzing it.
3) Take time to clear out the mental weeds that could potentially kill your ideal.
4) Do what is required of you, and then step back and allow. Trust it will all work out.
Ignorance of the co-creative process, over analyzing everything, feeding mental weeds, and constantly interfering with nature are the leading causes of death of human dreams.
By far the biggest factor in my opinion is #4.
Knowing when to stop working the garden and allowing nature to finish the work you started is super important.
That doesn’t mean you walk away and never come back to tend to it and help it along its way. It just means you trust that the earth was growing vegetation long before human beings arrived, and it sure can still handle the job now.
It’s good that we work with nature and help the process, but we should never try to take over completely.
It’s the same in our life…
Our mind is the garden. Our ideas are the seeds. Our attention and action is the water, and our emotion is the fertilizer.
The nature that grows the plants in the real garden is also the same nature that grows the non-physical seeds we plant in our mind.
Trust the nature in you. Trust that you are not just in this universe, you ARE the universe in part and in the whole.
If you take the time to do your job in the mental, emotional, and physical sense – the universe will do its job in the non-physical (spiritual) sense.
In simplest terms…
Do and let be done.
