a woman is sitting on a pier in a yoga pose, overseeing a lake, 10 Buckets for Work Life Balance: #9 Better Connecting with God and to the Divine

As we connect to that which is greater than us, or connecting to God, we start to realize how completely interconnected everything is. The more we realize how interconnected everything is, the more we start realizing how our actions have reactions in the world.

  • Do you ever feel lonely?
  • Do you get super frustrated because things aren’t going your way?
  • Do you get mad at others for not doing what you want them to do?
  • Do you long for peace, but recognize you are living in chaos?

Relationships happen in three directions: with myself, with others, and with my creator/higher power. Click To Tweet

As we connect to that which is greater than us, we start to realize how completely interconnected everything is. The more we realize how interconnected everything is, the more we start realizing how our actions have reactions in the world.

Our thoughts are things that create our reality. Our thoughts affect other people. Our thoughts magnetize or repel objects, circumstances or opportunities to us.


Connecting to God: There is a higher operating force

Whether you call it God, the universe, or quantum physics, there is something greater than you making all of this work in exactly the way you are vibrating, magnetizing, and inviting. Whether you are praying, or meditating, channeling, or doing yoga, there is a force greater than you.

An internal sense of peace comes when all three of these relationship buckets are fulfilled. If one is missing, or two are missing, I will not feel a sense of fulfillment, happiness, or peace. Click To Tweet

All three are based on TRUST.

Sometimes, bad things have happened to us. People tend to think in black and white, for instance, if God is “good,” and something “bad” happens, then God must not love me.

The same applies in interpersonal relationships. We learn that from our parents. If I do something “bad” then I am “bad” and I get punished. Our parents didn’t learn to say, “this behavior is bad, you are good.” Because of that, we end up collapsing the two. My behavior is “bad,” therefore, I am “bad.”

Since many religions project God as a father, and some religions even say he is a punishing father, these same beliefs get collapsed.

We learn NOT to trust ourselves, because we are bad. We learn NOT to trust others, because they are punishing because we are bad. We learn God will not save us.

We lose our trust all the way around.


The Law of Flow

The universe is so expansive. There are many swirling planets, moving around each other. You cannot change the course of the planets, they just simply move.

Like the river, it just moves.

The water cannot be told where to go, it just goes, it just flows. If you throw a ball in the river, and watch it move down the river, you cannot guess where it will go. But it will go. It will go somewhere. Or it will get caught in the current. This is the universe at work. This is the creative force of what we call God.

If the ball goes over the waterfall, is god bad? No. The ball is just going with the flow of the river. The flow of life.

If you watch the ball, and you think with all of your might, “BALL! GO TO THE RIGHT!” And if it goes to the left, does god love you less? Or are you trying to control something that is completely out of your control? Can you control the river? Can you make the water move the way you want it to move?

No, never.

Surrendering to the river, to the flow, watching the beauty of it. That’s being in it. That’s being connected. That’s being part of it.

This higher operating force we call God makes the planets circle around each other and the sun, and it makes the river flow. The more time you spend connecting to God, the more “FAITH” you create. You create the faith that, what will happen will happen in it’s own time. You start to believe in the flow and goodness of all things when you watch the river, or watch a flower grow, or watch a baby grow. Paying attention to these things creates faith.

The river will flow, and your thoughts are like the riverbank holding the water inside. The more you have a repeating thought, the more you edge out the path for the water to flow. This is the quantum physics aspect. This is the “thoughts create reality” context.

Your thoughts are a vibration, and they edge out the path for the water to flow. Does it mean that your bobbing ball will go the way you want it to? No. Does it mean the river is going to flow in the direction that your thoughts have paved, yes. How do I know this? Quantum physics and paying attention.

As you learn to watch your thoughts and your vibration, you will see, sooner, and more quickly every day, how your thoughts are creating your reality. Click To Tweet

The more often you see it, the more you will have FAITH in it and TRUST it.


Open To Receive


The more you begin to TRUST this FAITH, the more you are able to MANIFEST dreams, desires, hopes and wishes, because you start to realize just how powerful your thinking really is.

As you learn to be OPEN to receiving love from yourself from the first few buckets (Self-love, Self-care, and Worthiness) and thinking positive thoughts, you learn to be open to receiving all the of abundance of the universe as well, or vice versa.

As you open to the abundance of the universe and give your gifts, you begin to understand opening to receiving love and giving love openly. A FREE FLOW begins that is fulfilling, magical, peaceful and feels like home.
