Stop Worrying - Start Daydreaming!Reality Is A Mirror - Make Sure You're Smiling When You Look At It

Worry and daydreaming are different aspects of the same thing: your creative imagination.
Worrying creates blueprints of what you do not want in your future.
Daydreaming creates blueprints of what you do want in your future.
Worrying leaves you powerless, drained and tired because it seems to be driven by ‘outside’ forces, and therefore gives the impression of being ‘out of your control’. It is like having your mind hijacked by someone using your imagination to project images of worst-case scenarios and outcomes, without you being able to stop it.
Daydreaming, on the other hand, leaves you empowered, satisfied and energized because it feels as if you are the one feeding your mind with positive images of your joys, desires and wants. You seem to be in control of the outcome.
The way I see it, you are using the same source – your imagination – in both cases, but getting completely different results. The reason for this is that your reality acts like a ‘field’ outside of you, reflecting your deepest beliefs and thoughts about yourself.
Since this field works as a 3D mirror, it ‘obeys’ everything you ‘tell’ it to do. So if you focus your awareness on worry, it will give you more ‘images’, ‘ideas’ and ‘results’ for worry in the form of solid reality.
You might be thinking What kind of mechanism is this? Why would it reflect back a bad thing that I don’t want in my reality? The answer is: because it is unconditional and neutral. It behaves like a mirror. It will not argue with you or try to change your mind – it is all accepting, and above all, it respects your free will.
A quick reminder— Gordana Biernat (@MyPowertalk) 10 March 2019
of your greatest power:
You have been granted free will
so you can choose your thoughts,
emotions and actions.
✨Think creative thoughts.
If you smile, the mirror smiles back. If you frown, the mirror frowns back. You are the one choosing to smile – sending the smile and receiving it back.
Everything you think comes back to you. You are the sender and the receiver. Your imagination determines your reality.
Your thoughts, feelings and deepest beliefs are reflected in this field ‘outside’ of you. It creates the reality you imagine. Actually, this is the meaning behind the saying ‘Be careful what you wish for’. The word ‘wish’ could easily be replaced with ‘think about’, ‘believe’, ‘focus your mind on’, ‘dwell on’ or ‘talk about’.
Worrying is unintentional
creation of your future.
Daydreaming is intentional
creation of your future.
The choice is always yours.
Trying to understand the concept of unintentional creation of reality – to grasp its negative aspects and the fact that we actually have a choice – used to keep me up at night. My thoughts would go something like this:
If I am the one generating my reality, then how exactly am I doing this? I understand how I create the positive things, because they are what I deliberately want. They are conscious choices in the sense that I have daydreamed, desired and wished them into existence.
I have focused my awareness on them, and so I have made them consciously. But what about the negative things? I mean, why would I ‘want’ negative things in my reality?
The answer is: I don’t.
The key to this question is very simple: your reality answers all your beliefs, unconditionally. Worrying is like a constant negative prayer or mantra, generating a reality that you fear. And this is an important thing to understand – you create your reality with what you imagine and believe to be true about yourself. The Universe answers exactly and unconditionally to that specific frequency.
In a sense, daydreaming is like creating good ‘memories’ of something yet to come. When you daydream, you deliberately tune your frequency in to your desires, by creating inner pictures of your future self. It can be likened to remembering the past. Only while daydreaming or visualizing, you are ‘remembering’ good ‘memories’ of the future.
As an emotionally strong memory brings
the past into your present,
so daydreaming draws
a new future into your present
by shifting your frequency in the now.
When you daydream, you visualize a perfect ‘movie’, with all the details of your wishes, dreams and desires in your mind. Enjoying your daydream is the easiest way to change your frequency on demand because it tunes you in to joy, anticipation and hope. This, in turn, speeds up the manifestation process and allows otherwise invisible opportunities into your reality.
Use your free will
to choose what
into this reality.
