SEGMENT 1: LIFE BALANCE
“The greatest achievement was at first and for a time a dream. The oak sleeps in the acorn; the bird sleeps in the egg; and in the highest vision of the soul, a waking angel stirs. Dreams are the seedlings of realities”. -James Allen
One of the huge imbalances in our lives is the disparity between our daily existence, with its routines and habits, and the dream we have deep within ourselves of some extraordinarily satisfying way of living.
In the quote above, James explains that the dream is the magical realm out of which newly created life emerges. Buried within you is an unlimited capacity for creation, what Allen calls “a waking angel” that’s anxious to plant seedlings to fulfill your dreams and your destiny.
Allen’s reminder to us, speaks of our need to tend to the dream, within you.
SEGMENT 2: HOW THE IMBALANCE SHOWS UP IN YOUR LIFE
The absence of balance between our dreams and our daily living habits may be very subtle. It doesn’t necessarily reveal itself in the obvious symptoms of anxiety, illness or
depression- it’s more often something that feels like an unwelcome companion by your side, which continually whispers to you that you’re ignoring something.
There’s some often an unidentifiable task or experience that you sense is part of your beingness. It may seem intangible, but you can feel the longing to be what you’re intended to be. You sense that there’s a higher agenda, your way of life and your reason for life are out of balance. Until you pay attention, this subtle visitor will continue to prod you to regain your equilibrium. This feeling filters into every aspect of your life. The work you do, the place where you reside, the people with whom you interact, your geographic location, the books you read, the movies you watch and the conversations that fill up your life.
When you’re not balanced you feel it and on some level you know that. When you live your life going through the motions, it may seem to be convenient, but the weight of your dissatisfaction creates a huge imbalance in the life that you have now.
You may feel an ever present feeling of dissatisfaction that you can’t seem to shake, that pit-of -the-stomach sensation of emptiness. It shows up when you’re sound asleep and your dreams are filled with reminders of what you’d love to be, but you wake and return to pursuing your safe and comfortable routine.
Imbalance masquerades as a sense of frustration with your current lifestyle. If you allow yourself to think about this you may proceed to rationalize your status quo with explanations that you know in your heart are excuses because you don’t think you have the tools to get in balance.
You may get to the point where you become increasingly hard on yourself and begin having feelings of depression. You’ll surely feel yourself in a state of imbalance where there is less enthusiasm for what has become comfortable and routine in. Your life.
Work becomes more routine, and you feel less purpose and drive. If you are able to be honest with yourself, you recognize that your irritability,and distance stems from being out of balance with the bigger dream you’ve always had, but which is now apparently slipping away.
When these subtle symptoms arise, it's important to explore the kind of energy you’re giving to the scales to create balance-or in this case imbalance. The heavy angst is weighing down your reason for being-but you are the only one who can re-balance this in your life.
Here are some tools to help you return to a balanced life, beginning with recognizing the ways in which you may be sabotaging yourself.
SEGMENT 3: HOW TO CREATE BALANCE BETWEEN YOUR INSPIRED LIFE AND YOUR COMFORTABLE LIFE
Everyone has a desire to live their greatness life. Your greatness is an aspect of your spiritual energy. In order to create balance in your life, you have to use the energy or your thoughts to harmonize with what you desire. Your mental energy attracts what you think about. Thoughts that pay homage to frustration will attract frustration. When you say or think anything resembling “ There’s nothing I can do; my life has spun out of control and I’m trapped,” that’s what you’ll attract-that is, resistance to your highest desires.
Every thought of frustration is like purchasing a ticket for more frustration. Every thought that agrees that you’re stuck is asking the Universe to send you even more of the glue to keep you stuck.
The single most important tool to being in balance is knowing that you and you alone are responsible for the imbalance between what you dream your life is meant to be, and the daily, habits that drain life from that dream.
You can create a new alignment with your mental energy and instruct the Universe to send opportunities to correct this I’m balance.
When you do so, you discover that while the world of reality has it’s limits, the world of your imagination is without limits and boundaries. Out of this boundless imagination comes the seedling of a reality that’s been crying out to be restored to a balanced environment.
SEGMENT 4: RESTORING THE BALANCE BETWEEN DREAMS AND HABITS
The objective of this principle is to create a balance between dreams and habits. The least complicated way to begin is to recognize the signs of habitual ways of being, and then learn to shift your thinking to being in balance with your dreams. So what are your dreams?
What is it that lives within you that’s never gone away? What inner night light continues to glow, even if only a glimmer, in your thoughts and dreams? Whatever items, however absurd it may seem to others, if you want to restore the balance between your dreams and your habits, you need to make a shift in the energy that you’re contributing to your dreams.
If you’re out of balance it’s primarily because you’ve energetically allowed your habits to define your life. Those habits, and the consequences thereof, are the result of the energy you’ve given them.
Concentrate on this awareness. You get what you think about, whether you want it or not. Commit to thinking about what you want, rather than how impossible or difficult that dream may seem.
GIVE YOUR PERSONAL DREAMS a place to hang out on the balance scale so that you can see them in your imagination and they can soak up the energy they deserve.
THOUGHTS ARE MENTAL CURRENCY-SPEND IT WISELY Thoughts are mental energy, they’re the currency that you have to attract what you desire. You must learn to stop spending that currency on thoughts you don’t want, even though you may feel compelled to continue your habitual practice.
CHOOSING TO RESTORE A SEMBLANCE of balance between your dreams and your habits seems possible when you think of it this way. “ Your words bring to life an energetic alignment.”
Rather than putting your thoughts on what is, or what you’ve habitually thought for a lifetime, you shift to looking up and seeing, and firmly believing in what you see.
When you begin to think, in this manner, the Universe conspires to work with you, and sends you precisely what you’re thinking and believing. It doesn’t always happen instantaneously, but once the realignment is initiated in your thoughts, you’ve begun being in balance.
