29-B What's Missing

Let's expand a little bit on the topic of What's Missing.  I want you to really begin to see that what you are not giving is the same as you are not getting.  What you feel is missing is what you are unable or are not giving to others.

Once you realize this is what is happening, it is easy to turn it around so you begin to give to others what you feel is missing from your life.  If you want love, peace and harmony, then become love, peace and harmony and give that to everyone you encounter.  You will be surprised at how this will give you everything you thought was missing.  If you can label the things you feel like are scarce in your life and you live from abundance and share those traits and characteristics with others, then you will get those things back to you in even more abundance than you ever imagined.

Oftentimes when we feel neglected or feel like someone is not giving us what we need, the normal reaction is to pull back.  For example if I want my husband to focus more on me when he gets home from work, then my normal reaction would be to shut down when he comes home because I feel like he is not giving me exactly what I need.  I would feel hurt and angry that he is not focusing on me so I would not focus on him and let him make me feel ignored again;)  If I can shift this behavior and if I start to focus more on my husband when he comes home from work then he will begin to focus more on me as well.  If I change my percepetion, then my attitude and approach change, and his reaction to me will change as well.  By opening myself up and giving more, I allow more into my life. 

Either journal about these topics or spend some time thinking about each of your answers.
- What are you ready to create in your life?
- What do you want to invite more of into your life?
- What do you need to give more of so you get what you feel is missing in your life?
- What do you hold back from others?
- What do you really wish you had more of in your life?
- How can you give what you feel is missing?

Begin to make shifts in your life.  Look back at your list from Monday and begin to give to others what you feel is missing.  Change your thoughts and attitude and change what you get from life.

Enjoy the journey!

29-A What's Missing

After last weeks topic about being good and feeling good on the inside, I thought it would be good to write about what we may be missing in our life.  We may be doing great things and still feel like something is missing.  An interesting way to think about what you may be missing is to turn this around on yourself so you realize what you are missing is what you are not giving.  What you are missing in our own life is a direct reflection of what you are not giving to others and even to yourself. 

If we start to recognize what we feel is missing and we begin to give that to others, we will get that back from others too.  If we become conscious of what we want most in life and we open ourselves up to share that with others, then we will open ourselves up to receive that too.  We must give in order to receive.

It sounds so simple, but to be able to turn this around and realize that what we are missing most is what we are holding back from sharing is sometimes quite hard to grasp.  Then, taking it to the level of starting to give more of yourself, especially in the areas you feel are missing, is even harder to do.

I hope by reading through the questions and doing fieldwork and bonus challenge this week, you will begin to make great strides in eliminating what is missing from your life.  You deserve to have everything you dream of!

Either journal about these topics or spend a few minutes thinking through each of the answers.
- What do you feel is missing from your life?
- Do you give this freely to others?
- How can you give more of what you are missing?
- What would it feel like to not have anything missing from your life?
- What would it feel like to give of yourself more freely?
- How can you give more of yourself so you are missing less in your life?

This week, really begin to think about what you feel is missing from your life.  For example love, companionship, money, kindness, etc.  You get the point.  Make a list of the items you feel are most important for you to have in your life and go deep into what you really need to have a happy, meaningful life.

Quote: Andre Gide- Complete possession is proved only by giving. All you are unable to give possesses you.

Enjoy the journey!
