Does Life Happen For you Or is Life happening To You

Does Life Happen For you? ― Or is Life Happening To You?

The difference between for you and to you is very important.  It’s the key to understanding whether you view your life from the perspective of a victim or a victor. The right perspective can help you survive and thrive.

It doesn’t matter if you believe your life the result of fate, random chaos or being guided by divine intervention The general way you “believe” life is unfolding is key to walking in anticipation of curses or blessings.  With a positive attitude, life happens for you. You have the perspective to see and attract the good while fostering strength to learn the lessons when things don’t go your way.

Does Life Happen For You?

If you believe the universe is a positive place, chances are you have either a survivor or a victor.  That means, no matter what happens, you find the lesson. You learn from things and use your experience to make things better.   If you succeed, you learn how you got there and how to handle the victory.  If you failed, then you learn the lesson and how not to do it again.

You also experience several synchronistic events and omens.  The Universe has your back. What do you think? Does life happen for you?

Is Life Happening to You?

If you believe this is how life is and you are existing to get knocked around, then chances are you have a victim mentality.  It’s more than just a pessimistic, you try to prove life is out to get you.

There are many good reasons to transition from victim to survivor.  But reasons are not enough.  You need to know how to change your thinking.  Otherwise, you will stay stuck with the mantra, life is always happening to me, and it’s terrible.

Link to the law of Attraction

One of the overlooked keys to the law of attraction is your overall attitude toward life.  You can say a million affirmations. However,  if you still perceive yourself as a victim of life and not a victor in life, chances are cannot live in a state of victoryLife happening to you is the mindset of the victim.
Yes, even if you are attracting great things and situations, you can miss them because you see yourself as a victim of life.  This negates much of your positive thought and mantra.  It’s as if you are trying to “overcome” the fabric of life by seeking things.  Study the operation of the laws of attraction. An abundant life isn’t about monetary wealth. It’s about always being grateful with your current state.

Abundance is the quality of your state of mind towards your life.  Think about that for a moment and you’ll begin to understand that living a fulfilling, abundant life is about your attitude. It’s your about life itself, not the things or situations.

Remember that your words shape reality.  This includes your self-talk. Your experience is life is happening to you as a curse.  Actually, many of the things you receive in life are because you give it expressed permission and invitation.  Not everything comes by invitation, but many things do.

See How Life Can Happen for You

Life happening To You?

So, the bottom line here, you need to change your philosophy of life. If life is not happening for you, you need to change your goal.  Your goal should be to see life happen FOR you.  To make life work in our favor, we must first acknowledge the results.

Gratitude is the next key.  Find things to be grateful for.  Even during turmoil, but grateful for the lessons.  When you can reach this point, then all the affirmations, mantras, and sutras will begin to manifest in your life.  So, how do you accomplish this leap from life happening to you, to life happening for you?

You must learn to see the bright side of every situation.  Expect good things.  See the Universe as operating on your behalf, especially when things aren’t going your way.  The Universe and your mind respond to persistence.  Keep asking yourself the question, does life happen for you?

This doesn’t mean being fake.  Nor does it mean ignoring losses and sadness.  It means learning to shift your perspective to see them as learning opportunities.  This helps to shift your perspective from victim to victor. Here are three tips to change your perspective.

1) ask yourself what you are supposed to be learning.  Do this especially when in uncomfortable or negative situations. Be grateful for the experiences of life.

2) if you are using affirmations start them all with the mantra “everything is happening for me!”

3) practice as many spiritual technologies as possible. These processes will support your change in perspective.

Spiritual Technologies

Spiritual technologies are tools for exploring consciousness.  They result from generations of research by cultures around the world. These processes stand up to the test of science. They are repeatable and measurable.  Everyone who can follow a process can use these tools. We call the practice of these processes spiritual exploration.
You can list these tools in several ways. Some fall into more than one group.   We like this simple method of grouping.

Critical Thinking

The first group is several analytical tools to enhance critical thinking. The Enneagram Personality Profile is the first tool of our blended learning process. This tool provides insight into the mechanisms of ego, personality, and instinct. Logical reasoning, spotting logical fallacies, and logical axioms. These are the three major tools of logical reasoning. This helps you to avoid common mistakes in assessing information.
Next, a research tool we call Comparative analysis.  This is a process to help us explore and compare belief systems.  This process is a scientific process form of comparative religious studies. Together these analytical tools give a solid foundation of common sense thinking. They sharpen your ability to discern facts from fiction.

Seated Meditation

Seated meditation is the heart of most spiritual practices. This includes a wide range of meditation techniques. It starts with Beginning Meditation and Mindfulness Meditation. It progresses to more advanced forms like Japa Meditation the Siddhis of Patanjali.

Moving Meditation

This is another foundational element that strengthens the mind-body connection. Moving meditation is also to our health and wellness.  This progression includes several methods of energy collection. Here we teach Forest Bathing, Qigong, and Tai Chi.

Awareness Expansion

Pathways for expanding awareness include a variety of tools. This group includes practical tools like the spiritual journal and automatic writing. Here we introduce lucid dreaming, the Shamanic Journey, or Guided Meditation. There are also techniques for third-eye awakening and soul memory awareness.

Healing Practices

Healing practices are the last group.  This branch includes Pe Jet, Reiki, and Shiatsu.  Self-care is an important element of this group. It is vital for normalizing our inner work and maintaining our health and wellness.
