The Power of Choice
Choice is the most powerful of all the tools with which you create your reality, more powerful even than your beliefs, thoughts and feelings, because ultimately choice can supersede these, can steer and direct them in accordance with your will. You make thousands of choices every day, most of which you are not even conscious of. Your habits, for example, are choices that have become unconscious and automatic.
Actions, behavioural choices, are the most obvious choices, but there are subtler yet more profound choices, choices of what we think and feel, the attitudes we hold, the principles and values we choose to abide by, or not as the case may be. Every choice we make has an impact to a greater or lesser extent, each one like a pebble dropped in a pond, the ripples, the ramifications, spreading out into our future and other areas of our life.
Choice is available in every moment as a doorway to the possible, and in such, every moment is an opportunity filled with potential, for a new beginning, for greater love, for a new direction, for expanded success.
What choice could you make right now that would change your life for the better, today, tomorrow, in the coming weeks, months or years?
Perhaps choices of thought, feeling, or action, choices for new beliefs, choices of character, loving choices for yourself and others, choices born of your dreams, courageous choices outside your current comfort zone, choices that make your heart sing and bring you joy. Choice is the flagship of freewill. It is keystone to change and heralds new birth. When sourced in love, choice opens the doors to happiness, success, serendipity and opportunity, as you affirm your desire, assert your will, and the universe ushers in to support you in your creation of reality.
When you realise you have the power to choose in any given situation in your life, you awaken a new level of empowerment, responsibility and self-determination, and as such, you are better able to change it. Knowing that you are loved, loving and loveable ever and always, that the universe is always on your side, and that your choices hold great power, you can wield your choices more consciously, more expectantly, more powerfully, trusting the proceeding unfoldment that will occur and the turnings of the tide that commence in response to those choice made in your heart and mind.
People often accept responsibility for their actions, for what they choose to physically do, yet less often do they accept responsibility for what they think and feel and the impact this has on their life, yet this is where the greatest power of choice lies. It is your thoughts and feelings, your beliefs and attitudes that determine your experience, and in themselves, influence the very types of choices you are likely to make.
What new thoughts, beliefs and attitudes could you choose? How would that change your state of life, your state of mind, your behaviour, your relationships, your sense of self-value, for example…Even one small choice made today that shifts your life by one degree, can overtime lead to a future far brighter than where you are heading, opening you to new worlds of possibility, new doorways, new horizons, new people, places and opportunities, new levels of love, joy and success.
There are no ‘right’ or ‘wrong’ choices as such – but there are choices that are more or less serving to yourself and others at a given time. Don’t beat yourself up for faulty past choices and mistakes. Forgive yourself for less than serving choices in your human journey and let go of your past. You can create a new slate and lay new foundations through choice. You can forge an entirely new landscape and positively reinvent yourself and your world.
Found your choices in beauty and purity of love, and they will always lead to bright outcomes. Choice sourced in love can only ever win! Fear choices, anger choices, revenge choices, on the other hand, unsurprisingly don’t lead to fruitful results.
The mental and emotional state you are in can greatly influence the quality of your choices. Meditating, reflection and brainstorming can open up many possibilities and available choices. When making a choice it can help to ask yourself, ‘What would be the most loving choice?’ or ‘What would the winner choose?’
You might also like to put yourself in the shoes of your brightest future. What types of choices would that you make? It already knows the pathways and decisions that will take you where you want to be. You can also think of someone you admire greatly, perhaps in a given field you are pondering a choice in (be it relationships, business, health, and so on), and ask yourself, ‘What would [NAME OF INSPIRING PERSON] choose in this situation?’
Awaken the power of choice, befriend it, use it more consciously, freely, more wisely and lovingly.
Wield this magical tool to craft your ‘love life’ – a life you truly love!
