Ever wonder who’s in charge?
Some people are convinced that they are in charge of their destiny. Others are bounced around like a ship in the ocean.
But what is the truth? Are you in charge of your life, or is a certain amount left to chance?
The die-hard LoA’ers will tell you it’s all in your hands. But do you control the weather? Natural disasters? If you’re an employee at a large company, and the company suddenly goes out of business, was that YOUR doing?
This is a question with no easy answers. Personally, I like to think of myself as a co-creator of my life. Yes, my imagination plays a huge role in my future outcomes. And so does my belief system. And my actions, of course.
I do not believe I “caused” Hurricane Katrina. But I do find it interesting that about a year before the storm hit, I energetically released my house. I told my husband “If someone were to knock on our door today and offer me $50,000 more for this house than we paid for it, I’d happily take it.” Then I started planning my next home, how wide and spacious it would be.
This is the interesting part…when Hurricane Katrina hit, ours was the ONLY home in our entire neighborhood that did not flood.
The water came within inches of our front door. But no flooding, and only minimal damage to the property (hot tub cover was blown off, roof over the deck suffered a little extra wear…fence…power vent on roof blew off…that’s really all there was.
And because our home didn’t flood, we sold it for a nice profit under bizarre market circumstances.
I don’t believe I caused Hurricane Katrina. But I did co-create a way out of a home that we had outgrown (size-wise). Little did I know my new home would be Colorado.
But sometimes it pays to just be open to having the end result – or better – and not worrying so much about who’s in charge or how it might come about.
