It is easy to misconstrue the concept of creating. Often many people here someone like me say “we are all creators” and their initial reaction might be confusion or resistance. This idea of being creators can be easily mistaken or taken literally as if we are creating everything in our life, rather then our ability to interact and respond to and through life.
While I do personally very well believe that sometimes I can influence and create the outcome of something or manifest something outside of me, this is only because of the fact that as energetic co-creating beings we do in many ways have external influence. However, when I say we are creators, it’s important to be clear that we are all CO-creating with source energy, God, and each other. Therefore, we can not account for all of the many external energetic forces all around and influencing around us.
We can, however, account for how we show up in life and how we respond to all other energetic forces. For example, if I want to create a beautiful romantic partnership - I can not simply sit there and think of this perfect man expecting the universe to drop him off.... but what I can do is begin to think “who do I need to be to attract a man and relationship that I desire and seek?” Then I can make the subconscious shifts from over time to support becoming that person, which could influence my ability to attract my dream partnership. This is still not a guarantee, but what is quite a guarantee is that in this experience I will most likely begin to notice a vast improvement in all my relationships as a ripple effect, because of how I show up.
We can’t control all the forces of the universe. We can just CREATE the WE we want to be when encountered with said forces. It’s important to get clarity around questions like, “how do I show up in the face of adversity, in the unknown, or when life happens and things aren’t the way I think they should be? How do I show up in love, loss, or hardship?” When we get clear about our values and how we want to be, we can then use simple (not easy) rewiring tools to help us shift into this authentic state of being.
Here is another example. I’m not going to create 1 million dollars by just sitting and thinking about 1 million dollars. However, I might create wealth and a million dollars by shifting my internal state into an abundant mindset, and create new habits that support my ability to build wealth through a mindset of worthiness, discipline and my ability to provide value, or maybe take risk.
Life is happening all the time around us, through us, to us, and mostly for us.... We can’t create it ALL, but as co-creators we GET to create our internal state which affects how we show up to it, for it, and through it.
