Perception changes everything. Wayne Dyer said it best when he said “Change the way you look at things and the things you look at change.” To perceive the way you view your world is limiting only to the restrictions we place on how we interpret the image. We can look at something and see it totally different than someone looking at the same thing. How is this possible?
What one perceives is a result of interplays between past experiences, including one’s culture, and the interpretation of the perceived. So how we are actually viewing our life is really clouded by experiences we had in the past and interpreting everything through those lenses. This is so interesting. So if we don’t like what we are seeing we can change the way we are reacting to the experience and everything beings to change. We can look at a glass of water half empty or half full, we can look at our life as being joyful or joyless. Every thing has a polar opposite rich, poor, up down, positive, negative; it is the center point between the two that shifts the perception of where we are.
You are creating your experiences. The question is what experience do you want to create? What is the risk to look at things through a new lens? To begin to focus your thoughts and feelings on the things you want rather than focus on what you don’t want. It is never too late to have a happy childhood. Just shift your perception. If you can change your future by thinking new thoughts why can’t you change your past? It is just a matter of viewing things differently.
Begin today, this moment, to look at your life through a new set of eyes and begin to create anything that you can imagine! Anything is possible if you believe!
