What you choose to focus on looms larger, creates further. Since we live in the Land of Duality, when we choose a ‘side’ we create an equal and opposite side. This causes friction and becomes our frequency of vibration. Our feelings are made from our thoughts. Accept what you have created. Be present. Are you done with this energy? Would you like to release it or keep it? We are as empowered as we are at any given moment through our own choices. Clinging, grasping; ‘should,’ ‘must,’ ‘have to,’ ‘got to,’ etc. – you can hear these thoughts roaming around in your head. Depression, oppression, repression; a truth we will not allow ourselves to have. Sadness; regret of the past. The past is ‘dead and gone.’ Even joyful past memories may bring sadness, clinging. Anxiety; fear of the future – based on past thoughts, feelings, and actions. Say, “I hear you. I am here FOR you. Right NOW I am. All is well.” Cry. Breathe. All is well. ~ Michele Nappi – Mystic Medium

The next time you lose heart and you can’t bear to experience what you’re feeling, you might recall this instruction: change the way you see it and lean in. Instead of blaming our discomfort on outer circumstances or on our own weakness, we can choose to stay present and awake to our experience, not rejecting it, not grasping it, not buying the stories that we relentlessly tell ourselves. This is priceless advice that addresses the true cause of suffering—yours, mine, and that of all living beings. Pema Chodron
