Living Consciously Through Our Choices

Do our choices affect our destiny? Can't we simply fix things later with a do-over?
Shouldn't I be more spontaneous in my life and not over analyze, I thought that was what I was supposed to do?

These are some questions which have been coming up quite a bit in not only my own head, but with friends, colleagues and of course clients. 

Our choices affect our lives on so many different levels as well as our life's path. Yes, sometimes we must make quick decisions because of a once in a little opportunity presents itself or maybe we have a tendency to over analyze and are trying to move things along by making spontaneous decisions.

The seeds I am planting today have to do with consciously weighing our options by going within to see possible outcomes and what choice may be for not only our highest and best good but for the highest and best for all. 

By taking care with our destiny we are in the driver's seat of our lives. We are taking personal responsibility and are consciously aware of what are and aren't manifesting according to our choice. 

Here are some situations where we can be more aware of our choices, bring in more self-awareness and avoid regret because of our decisions.

Ways to Avoid Wanting That Do-Over:
  • Say no when we mean no
  • Decide to take a healthy step back from unhealthy relationships
  • Clear the air when there is a misunderstanding -choosing to walk away without clear communication leaves room for unhealthy consequences
  • Put forth your best effort in all endeavors
  • Career decisions - move on when it is time - staying longer than you know you should creates disharmony and spirit is going to make you really uncomfortable until you are proactive
  • Do work on your limited belief system when you know it is limited
  • To eat healthy, good nurturing food
  • Communicating after you have formulated healthier approaches to others 
  • Check in with yourself to review what your true motives are - are you making clean and wise decisions or are you trying to prove a point to another
  • Consider other people's feelings, opinions and take a moment to put yourself in their shoes
  • Keep your ego in check
  • Be sure you are complete with your current situation before you move on - you may be repeating the same life lesson if you haven't had closure or understood what the heck all of this was about
Hopefully a seed or two has been planted within at least a few of my readers and hopefully those seeds will bring forth amazing fruit from your hard work.

Our choices map out our life's path. It may be helpful to take a little time and reflect on how your choices from healthy and unhealthy places have affected your life. Please do use these experiences to grown and empower not only yourself but others.

Blessings and Light,
