March 2012…. F O C U S E D Choice
The idea of deliberate f o c u s for this new month suggests not simply an ability to bring attention to something, rather a deliberate calling to have clarity – to be clear about what it is that you want – and to keep this focus clear and precise as you manifest it.
What gives us clarity?
Life and our choices become far less confusing when we decide based on examining what it is that we really want. To remain authentic to the answer, you have to let your heart respond.
As a child, we base most of our decisions on an innate desire. We like ponies or model airplanes and we’re not inhibited to say so. We can ask for a trip to the stables and to learn about horses because that is our honest desire. It comes not from analyzing the many options we may have, but simply feeling / knowing it in our heart.
It becomes tricky to make these simple decisions years later when we have already made so many life decisions based on an analytical process …and at times, driven by fears rather than our dreams. Often the biggest life decisions are made not by listening to what our heart yearns for, but rather on a process of deliberation and “rational” thinking. Sometimes our desires are not meant to be rational…that is, we can’t always explain why we are drawn to woodworking, being in nature, or experimenting with recipes in the kitchen. Yet we simply know that doing what we love most is somehow our calling.
The idea of focused choice reminds us to choose our destiny. Without a need to explain or justify your heartfelt decision, be willing to make choices during this month of March and always…based on what it is that you really want.
The next step is in manifesting…bringing an idea into the physical world (the world of form).
You bring something new into your life by seeing it first in your mind. Our minds work best using mental pictures. Our ability to ‘focus’ with clarity and intention on what we desire is a conscious way of manifesting.
To manifest is to use the ability of the mind to hold focus on the object of your desire; seeing it in the physical world – even when it is not yet ‘here’.
Often we doubt something because we cannot see it. To manifest something is to remain intently focused on it with a heartfelt desire and a belief that it is possible.
FOCUS gives us direction in life. With focus we can move toward a goal (and a purpose) and feel confident that our direction will provide us with the right outcome. Just remember that your focus needs to be on what will inspire and excite you MOST. Anything less than that will make it difficult for you to feel excited about manifesting. Without focus we continue along on any path that is presented to us…
