You are the CreatorFeb 16, 2023
I recorded this episode from Maui (in the closet!), because everywhere around me there was just another beautiful creation to take in. I was stunned by the miracle and the majesty of it all, as well as the variety in the creation of this world.
It is an amazing reminder about our true potential. Our Creator had so much care for us and wanted you to come to this earth to learn and grow and practice your agency so that you can become the creator of your own life, your own reality.
We are each creating our own realities, and that creation is made through our choices.
In this episode, I’m sharing some of the principles of creation that I have been reminded about this week and how you can apply them to the creation of your own life.
Lesson #1: When you say, “I don’t care,” you get something you don’t want.
Sometimes we feel so overwhelmed with our own lives, so tired, so maxed out, that we think we don’t have the capacity to make any more decisions. We say we don’t care…but we really do.
When we stop making the intentional decisions of our lives and are just trying to survive, we can end up in a situation or a life that we don't really love.
When this happens, you’ve stopped being the creator. You’ve delegated the creation of your life to your brain’s default thinking.
We are always creating, whether we like it or not. And we're either doing it intentionally and choosing for ourselves, or our brain and our default thoughts are running the show.
Lesson #2: The three keys to creating what you want.
Awareness that you are the creator and that whatever you see in front of you is a result of your thoughts.
Acceptance that you are in the situation you’re in. There can be a lot of resistance here, a lot of wishing you were somewhere else or had done something differently. But creation is an additive process.
Where you are is good and exactly as it should be right now.
Adjustment of your thoughts so that you can create new things in your life.
Lesson #3: Our brains often behave like an invasive species
During a driving tour on Maui, we came to an area with a lot of bamboo growing. Bamboo is a non-native, or invasive, species to Hawaii, and it got me thinking again about our thoughts.
No one is really sure when bamboo showed up on the island, but it flourishes in the climate. It takes up resources and space from the native plants. It is a real battle to bring back native plants because the bamboo grows so fast and has taken over.
We also have so many thoughts that were planted in our brains long ago. Maybe we don’t even know where they came from, but they steal our resources and energy. They’re growing and creating results, but they may not be the ones we want.
Adjusting our thoughts is a very active process, much like trying to re-introduce native plants. I am constantly working to uproot the thoughts that took hold in my childhood, the stories I’ve believed about myself, and replacing them with the thoughts I want.
It takes energy, commitment and decision making. That doesn't mean that you’re doing it wrong.
The adjustments that you make in your mind are the things that change your behavior. When those actions start to stack up, they create new results in your life.
Lesson #4: Creating your life is a process.
We are so impatient about creation in our own lives. We look around and we want to skip to the part where our lives are different already.
But creation builds on itself. It is slow and methodical. Every step is good, and every step is important.
You are never the creation. You don’t need to be a certain way or reach a certain goal to be good. Seeing yourself as the creation can cause you to feel a little desperate, to want to change really fast.
But you are the creator, and you are learning the principles of creation. You are the chooser, and your worth is entirely independent of whatever you create.
Your results and your life are the creation. Your life is a reflection of your choices, and you can always choose something different.
