Many times, at certain periods of our life experience, we may not have complete control over our environment. As children, we can’t very well go where ever we want to, whenever we want to. It is important, however, that we place ourselves (every chance we are able to) in a safe, nurturing, supportive environment. It is in these environments that healing takes place and personal growth can occur.
The beauty and magic of meditation and visualization is that we can create an INNER ENVIRONMENT that we can enjoy, heal within, and experience ANY feeling we desire, almost ANY TIME we choose.
When we are able be calm and focus on the important things, it is much easier to keep things in perspective. It is extremely helpful if we are not always in “survival mode.” A stress-free environment is helpful for each of us in many ways. While intermittent periods of stress can contribute to our growth and making us stronger, prolonged stress causes lowered immune function, disease, illness, weakness, and eventually an early death.
Some of us may think we need constant chaos and stress in our lives to feel okay and normal-especially when we were raised in such an environment and that has always been our emotional baseline. At times, we even create chaotic and stressful situations for ourselves because of this belief or need to perpetuate this feeling, because feelings of safety and live feel incredibly uncomfortable. This is especially true where abuse has been present. The feelings we experience after prolonged, consistent abuse can actually become a habitual emotional baseline, and can be a hard habit one to break.
What type of environment do you want to live in? What can you do consistently, each day, to create that exact environment in which you want to thrive? We are co-creators with the Universe and every living thing within this world that we choose to interact with, and we can literally create, and then choose to consistently re-create, the environment and life of our dreams, each moment of each day.
Today’s challenge for myself: Today I will begin to create the exact environment I want to be in. I will surround myself with the people, places, things, thoughts, habits, and feelings I need, to create that environment.
This video featuring Earl Shoaff has been an incredibly helpful tool in manifesting and enjoying the exact environment and life I want. I hope it helps do the same for you. The message, for me, was something new. It was a new way for me to think and create, and it works!
