We invite people in our life and attract them.
What people we attract, depends on how we are assuming and seeing life and everybody else. There is a positive purpose in any response from the universe. The universe is trying to please us and give us what we are asking for.
We do rarely look for answers within ourselves.
I mentioned in my previous posts that we have lost the ability to see, understand and interpret the warning signs and encouraging signs which our subconscious mind and the universe makes us aware of. We also do not try to access our subconscious mind which has the knowledge about us and about everything else.
We live with blaming circumstances, situations, other people and bad luck.
We sometimes blame parents and relatives.
We sometimes blame everything, but especially government, politics and politicians.
We blame doctors for our bad health.
We blame the century we live in.
We blame teachers for lack of kids’ success.
We blame other people who teach us for putting us in a bad situation.
In fact, we have to assume responsibility for what we do, what we say and what we think. It is us who made choices, even in situations when it feels we didn’t do anything wrong. It is difficult to understand what caused every situation, but it usually becomes clear after some time. That time might be shorter or longer, but the cause-and-effect chain will be visible from the distance.
Imagine you are watching a movie where somebody gets in all kinds of troubles. You hold your breath sometimes and beg: “Oh, no! Don’t do that!” or “Oh, my God! Don’t trust him!” If that were you, you would not act like that because you can see in a movie everything from the side and from a distant point. It is clear what everybody’s intention is, where it is going, and it is easy to understand where every action will take these people.
When it comes to our own life, we frequently tend to lose direction and purpose. We sometimes get lost completely, and we sometimes get off track, as well.
The truth is that nobody else is responsible for one’s lucky or unlucky life, but that person oneself. We only receive in our life what we believe in, what we believe we are and what we believe the world around us is. Neither the universe, nor God punishes anybody. When somebody feels guilty and blames him- or herself and carries the destructive feeling of guilt in themselves, the universe simply responds to that.
While most people want to change either themselves or their life, it is not that they always follow up on this desire. One can write thousands of positive affirmations, but if they go out and keep being angry, frustrated, envious and feel offended by everything, i. e., keep thinking the same old way, nothing will change. We have to start with changing ourselves instead of waiting for the world and other people to change.
Just try to recall how you say: “Thanks, God!” when good things happen. We simply have to learn recognizing opportunities for improvement, and the universe will respond to our good goals and honest attempts.
When bad things or situations happen, we frequently would say ”How unfair this life is!” In fact, something we did or did not, something we convinced ourselves about, and the way we acted and thought in the past, which might be a very distant past, eventually led to this situation.
When we keep repeating how unfair and bad life is, how terrible, mean and disgusting other people are, how poor, sick and unlucky we are, the universe can’t help, it has to respond to your desperate calls.
There are no coincidences.
We have to start with believing that everything we experience is a lesson. We are here to learn. When we do not get the lesson, the situation can turn bad.
When we say, we want to change; we have to start with ourselves. Waiting for somebody else to change is simply silly. I will repeat: we attract people who enter our life. It does not mean they are always great or good people. To change that, we most likely will have to change our opinion, our attitude towards other people and disposition towards the outside world. We will have to change the way we think about other people.
We are literally a reflection of our deepest belief and our thoughts. There are also hidden thoughts which we never show to others. It does not matter whether you put your opinion out or not: if it is deeply rooted in you, there will be a response.
Simple example. When a women complains that all her dates have been nasty and rude men who had no good intentions, means that either based on family experience or somebody else’s experience, she believes deeply in her heart that all men are nasty, rude, cheaters and liars. The universe will provide her with such a person.
Other situation. Somebody is at your door trying to offer you something, sell you something or get you in a shady deal. What’s your response? It is very often: “We don’t need anything’. Just pay attention how it looks and sounds: we don’t need anything. The universe listens and delivers.
There are people who will sometimes ask you to help out financially and then there are people who beg for money on the street. What is frequently the response? “I don’t have any money”. “Sorry, I cannot help you because I’ve got no money at all”. “We have no money at all”. Universe definitely listens to that and depending on how frequently you love to repeat that, sequences will set in. Wouldn’t it better to just say: ”No, I don’t think I should invest in this”; “I’m not interested in this purchase, in this deal, so on”. “We usually do not give any money to drunk or high people”, that way.
These are lessons. These are also opportunities for us to change the way we see and react to other people and our world.
We should learn from everything: good situations and bad situations. We should take into account reminders, signs and warnings. We should also pay attention to encouraging and go-ahead situations. Some things will always trigger the same bad response. Why not learn from that?
Being nice to other people is good and useful, even when it is “just in case” or “you never know”.
Being attentive and observant is even better.
All the bad situations mean that we have to change a lot: our attitude, our assumptions, maybe our intentions and we have to rely on and make our subconscious mind guide us. Bad situations show that we are doing something wrong. All good situations mean that we are on the right path. Both types of situations are normal and needed in order we would keep developing ourselves instead of stagnating.
Blaming leads to no results. Instead, we have to start looking for ways to improve what we have and ways to make our life more fulfilling.
We start with changing ourselves.

All good advice, Inese. Yes, change must come from within.

That is probably the most difficult part because many of us assume that somebody will come along and straighten it all out.

Maybe one of the best blogs I’ve ever read (and re-read and re-read) You are so right about cautioning on the words and thoughts we choose and the messaging we send out to God or the Universe be it positive or negative. The universal energy seems to have no judgement on what one believes or wants, it just responds accordingly. Love the line Just try to recall how you say: “Thanks, God!” when good things happen. So true!

Thanks so much for your comment! I have developed my observations during 6 decades I have been living in Europe and in Canada. I can compare what results in what, and the comparison is in favor of Europe.
Latvia is a very ancient country and we have numerous things given us from ancestors. I have studied also the ancient Latvian signs and symbols, as well as folklore, like fairy tales and legends.
It is amazing how fairy tales confirm what we know now based on research! It usually goes like this: they had 9 or 7 or other number of children, all children were normal children, but the youngest was very distinctive. These tales are friendly and they give the youngest son or daughter who most likely is autistic or has autistic spectrum disorder, the special powers and the ability to see or do things that normal people cannot. We know now that when a child is fathered by a man of older age, 50+, the risk of autism and mental disorders grows significantly. This risk is about 30% higher with fathers that are older than 50. Fairy tales have paid attention to the youngest kids of large families and noticed their special features.
Basically, answers are everywhere. Explanations, too. We just need to see and listen, most often it is our own subconscious mind that knows the future, warns us, encourages us and allows becoming who we want to be.
