Back to the Future
Today the JoyScope wants to take you on a journey. Climb aboard the time machine whilst we travel back through your life. As we travel back, notice all of those memories and events that have been part of your path—all of those experiences that have made you the amazing person that you are today. Now through the magic of time travel, we are going to visit your future. Can you see all of the wonderful experiences that the Universe is lining up for you? We travel on to a point in your future where you are sitting in your rocking chair by a warming fire watching the last embers die down and reflecting on the incredible life you led. Doesn’t it feel wonderful to know you fulfilled your potential? With all of that warmth in your heart and soul, return to now, remembering the wonders that life has in store for you.
It's at this time of year that we can lose some of the motivation that comes with the start of a fresh year. So if you want to keep the momentum going, how do you access the right mindset day in and day out? Well it could be a lot easier than you think. Just notice what you were thinking at New Year! We usually have a whole belief system that inspires us to make changes, such as “it’s a fresh start” or “this will be my year” or “this year, I'm going to achieve ________ “. Any time our motivation slips, we have just changed our thoughts, usually in response to things not working out quite as we would want. So if you want to re-motivate yourself, just find a new thought that gets you going again—“it's never too late to have a great year”, “I've already learnt what doesn't work, now I can focus on what does” or “every day I am moving closer to my dreams”. Find the words that uplift and inspire you and you really will have your best year yet.
Our minds function best when focused on just one thing. At an absolute stretch we can hold about three to four thoughts in our head at once. Yet how many of us try to think through multiple ideas, decisions and problems at the same time. Simple decisions, like choosing what to eat for lunch, use up our limited source of brain-power so imagine what handling complex projects does to your mental energy supply. So the message from the JoyScope today is to keep your focus. Gently request of yourself and your mind that irrelevant thoughts and ideas stay out of difficult mental processing tasks so that you can focus on what is really important. You will notice that you free up essential energy and therefore become much more productive.
Today the JoyScope would like you to plan a date! This is a very different kind of date because the person you get to spend some quality time with is you! Pick a day or evening in your diary and set aside all the people, projects and demands, and plan the perfect time just for you. When you think back to one of the best dates you ever had, didn't you make an extra effort? Didn't you consider what would make it particularly special? Didn't you ensure that you treated the other person with respect and kindness? The same applies to this date. Make it your dream date in whatever way feels right—picking the perfect venue, turning off your phone or pager, treating and pampering yourself. Dating ourselves is a powerful way to build a strong and solid inner relationship that makes coping with the usual stresses and strains a breeze. You may find you even want to make it a regular occurrence in your schedule.
Most of us will readily accept the idea that our dreams contain symbols and messages but if we believe that we create our own reality by our unconscious thoughts then it would also be true that our daily lives can have symbolic meaning too. This is not to suggest that we should read meaning into every small event (we would never get anything done!) but it can be useful to interpret themes that seem to be running through our lives. For example, colds and runny nose, leaking pipes or floods can all be symbols of unreleased emotion. If you notice certain patterns emerging, it is beneficial to ask what it could mean if it was a message from the Divine. The key to doing this effectively is to stay in a place of openness to the meaning, taking responsibility rather than blame for what is occurring. This fosters a deeper connection with our infinitely wise Higher Self and creates more awareness and choice about how we live our lives.
Road rage seems to have become one of the norms of our culture today. Something changes when we climb in those boxes on wheels that simply wouldn't happen if we were walking down the street. Anyone who has been on the receiving end of any kind of road-based anger (even if it is just those not-so-supportive gestures when you are perceived as doing something wrong) knows the impact it can have. The truth is that road rage is simply an outlet for the general frustrations and irritations happening in other areas of their lives. It isn't the action that angers them; it is the meaning they make of it. For example, someone cuts in front of their car and they react to the feelings in their life of being unacknowledged or insignificant. When we understand that, we have the opportunity to respond differently. Instead of reacting or retaliating we can stay centred and send blessings. An acknowledging nod and a wave is often the perfect antidote to road rage. Imagine how much more fun driving would become if we all practised the art of road love!
