Rising Above Your Circumstances

Rising Above Your Circumstances

A wise woman once said, “Life is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you’re going to get.” There is so much truth in that statement. Circumstances can come in all shapes and sizes. But one thing we all know is… sometimes circumstances can be really, really good… and sometimes they can be really, really bad.

So what do you do when circumstances get bad? It is so easy to let negative circumstances turn into negative attitudes, actions, and behaviors, ultimately leading to a poor quality of life. But what if you could rise above your circumstances, and never again have to depend on the way things go to live the life of your dreams?

You can… and all you need is a simple understanding of the levels of consciousness.

Think of levels of consciousness (material, emotional, mental, spiritual, and source) as experiences we have in life. The top level (source plane) and the bottom level (material plane) are the two places we can generate our reality from. So, if you are living through the material plane, you are focused on actions and circumstances. If you are living through the source plane, you are focused on your state of being.

So rising above your circumstances is really very simple…

If you want to never again have to depend on circumstances to determine your quality of life, all you have to do is focus on your state of being. The one thing you can always choose, in any situation, is your state of being. You can choose to be a person of integrity anytime you want. You can choose to be a loving, caring, nurturing person anytime you want. When you focus all of your attention on being the person you want to be, you are no longer thinking about what a circumstance means about your life. Instead, you are thinking about how “you” operate in, and maximize, those circumstances. You are now constructive, positive, and intentional. From this place, you are always purpose-driven, and studies show that when people are purpose-driven, they are extremely happy, healthy, and successful… regardless of circumstances.

So the next time you’re in a circumstance that feels like the end of the world, rise up to the source plane of consciousness, focus on a desirable state of being, and take your life by the horns. That’s what empowered people do.
