In each and every moment – Choose!

Your happiness—your joy is not predicated on ‘if’ something happens or ‘when’ something happens. Happiness and joy are available in each and every moment. They are there for you now. Right now. It always has been and eternally will be. What are you waiting for. Choose! ~ Ara Parisien, International Medium & Spiritual Teacher

Choosing

ara choosing store

We are always choosing.  In every  moment we breathe there are choices being made.

As I was in my local supermarket yesterday I wandered around picking up the items it suddenly struck me that everyone around me was in the act of expressing choice.  Immediately I could feel my vibration lift and I felt exhilarated at the fact that we all have the free will to choose whatever we like—and don’t like at any moment in time.

One woman walked around the store with a pronounced scowl on her face.  I watched as she threw items into the cart almost angrily.  Suddenly, the scowl disappeared and a smile appeared as she spied a pot of beautiful flowers.  She picked it up and turned it around and around appreciating each little flower and strong stem.  She started to put the pot in her cart, thought twice then ultimately put the pot of flowers back on the shelf for whatever reason and walked off, the scowl returning once more. It saddened me a little bit to see that she believed in order to keep that feeling of absolute delight going she had to buy the pot of flowers.  She didn’t.  In that one minute or so of pure appreciation her vibration lifted and she radiated. Her life was beginning to change and she didn’t even realize it. Then she chose the feeling she was most comfortable with and the scowl returned and with it returned everything that gave birth to that scowl.

Others were actively choosing all around me.  Children loudly and eagerly were choosing their favourite things; the elderly were choosing their delectable treats and I was choosing what I preferred.  Choosing was going on in the parking lot over spaces, people were choosing to stop and chat with others.  Some were choosing to laugh or share a sad note.  I was absolutely thrilled with this flow of power—yes power!  I felt it course through me and I smiled at this microcosm of a world around me.

It made me think of choosing our thoughts.  Why is it that some people deliberately choose discomforting thoughts when there are wonderful ones hanging in the same space around them.  Choosing the uncomfortable ones made me think of walking into a supermarket and deliberately buying all the things I did not like.  A person would never do that intentionally yet when it comes to our thoughts we believe we do not have control.  We do.

Next time you find  yourself awash in thought-waves of negativity or sadness envision you are walking into a grocery store.  Shop for just the right thought. Don’t believe that there is something you must ‘have’ in order to feel better.  Simply appreciate all the wonder you see around you.  Allow the fact that you actually have a choice be your first point of appreciation and you will appreciate more and more of all you see.  It makes a difference.  You can do it! ~ Ara Parisien, International Medium & Spiritual Teacher

Live Your Joy

ara live joy

Let passion be your motivator. Let peace be your guide. Let unconditional love light your way. Let joy fill your being. All this is possible when you consistently choose to focus on what is important—you. It is not about what others say, do, believe or express. That is all external and a direct measure of their own emotional pain or joy. Just notice it. There is never a need to own another’s perspective. Keep seeking that which makes your heart sing and celebrate that you have the free will to choose feeling one way over another. It matters not what others are choosing. It matters most what you choose. It is important for you to love your choices; love the experience; love your empowerment and to love your ability to uplift above any challenge. You are truly amazing. Live like it. ~ Ara Parisien, International Medium and Spiritual Teacher.

Joy

ara joy (1)

Just for today….when you feel angst, annoyance or anger….remind yourself that it is your trigger to start looking for joy.  It is your Higher Self letting you know you are focused in a way that is not of benefit.  Joy is not something one finds or is awarded.  It is a choice.  Only you can choose joy.  No one’s actions or inactions will bring it about for you.  It’s all you.  It has always been this way and will continue to be so…eternally.  You hold the choice, you are the means and you are the way.  Choose your way into joy.  Accept nothing less.  You deserve it.

Respect

respect1

I have been pondering the concept of respect.  I hear time and time again how one will respect another only if the respect is reciprocated.  On a personal level when words are uttered such as I understand unconditional love is not present.

We seem to be so consumed by the way people respond or react to us.  We forget that we are all ‘life unfolding’ at all times.  Each of us finding our way and experiencing trials and triumphs as we go. Each of us has the free will to think, believe and choose whatever we want. We are not here to all agree.  What one person has come here to grow and evolve through cannot be known nor understood.  Honour the journey they are on as when you do you honour your own.  Remember we are all a reflection of one another. What we notice in one we carry ourselves. It is in this way we are reminded of the inner healing that requires our attention.  It is all a perfect gift if we choose to see it that way.

Honour life in all forms no matter what the expression.  Refuse to judge.  Refuse to defend.  Just notice, be aware, choose what you wish to engage with or simply move along. Always, in love.

Wisdom from The Council of 12

clouds The Council of 12 are speaking with me today. While I may not always appreciate what they tell me I know with certainty that they always have my back.

“You are powerful. Magnificently powerful. You are powerful enough to rise above the human qualities of negative self talk and the attachments to ideals that prove to be nothing more than your perception of an ideal. Release the tattered remnants to the wind and love the fact that opportunity has presented a choice for your greater good. We ask not for you to like the choice. We ask only that you love yourself more than the choice. For there is your ultimate release to freedom.” ~ The Council of 12 via Ara Parisien
