Hello SOTGC community,
I am so honored to be a part of the team here and look forward to connecting with you all and bringing little “nuggets” of wisdom on how we can live more mindfully in all aspects of our lives.
I’m going to kick-start my posts with positivity. In the book The Law of Divine Compensation, Marianne Williamson describes it as follows: “Positivity is more than the absence of the negative; it is the presence—through thought, word, and action—of the positive. In other words, simply not being negative is not enough. If we’re interested in creating miracles, in invoking the most powerful creative manifestation, we must proactively be positive. There are three types of positive attitude that make all the difference: positivity about other people, positivity about possibility, and positivity about ourselves.”
When we take a look at how these three types of positive attitudes fit in to our lives we can also see where we need to make adjustments. Let’s take our work for example. We often times separate our work or ‘job’ from who we are spiritually. It’s only when we merge our spiritual selves with our work that the magic begins to happen. We no longer see it as a race of who gets to the top first, we can reside in a space of knowing that there is enough room for each of us. It’s also in recognizing that there are a myriad of people involved in your daily business lives; employers, employees, colleagues, associates, customers and so on, each of whom is a key player in terms of your overall success.
When we think positively about those we work with and choose to live from our hearts expressing love, compassion, and kindness we tend to receive the highest expression of that person’s self in return. Which then gives you the opportunity to respond at the highest spiritual level of your own self, inviting opportunity for synergy and creativity between you both. Imagine the successes you will bring to yourself as well as elevating all those around you when you live in love rather than fear!
“Separating our thoughts of work from our thoughts of spiritual devotion
is thus personally disempowering, because it throws us out of the spirit mind
and into fear. In fear, we forget who we really are. Forgetting who we are,
we forget Who lives within us. And in forgetting Who lives within us,
we lose conscious connection to our power.”
The Law of Divine Compensation, by Marianne Williamson
A workplace can be filled with ego or be a place of love and creativity. We often see disrespect, entitlement, arrogance, laziness, exploitation, disloyalty and greed. But if we choose, it can be a sanctuary for positivity. Rather than pointing fingers in blame, we can willingly understand the process of transformation, which gives us positivity about possibility.
What does it look like to have positivity about ourselves? When you adopt the mindset that we are all one and come from the same Divine oneness/God/Creator, it’s easy to see that because we are of the Divine, we are each of the same loving light and that we are not separate.. When you buy in to the fact that it’s your talent, your abilities that make you special, it creates a huge rift in our unity. When you see that in separating ourselves from each other is really separating us from our Creator, you see the importance of being in the mindset that we are all one and we all have the brilliance of the Divine within us. We recognize our greatness and our genius as an expression of the Divine coming through us, and realize that everyone has the same potential. It is with the humble recognition that we are each really ‘no big deal’ but that you and everyone else are here to act as a conduit of our Creator in co-creating the greatest good in every situation.
We can be the change in the world AND our workplace! When you shift in to positivity, everyone shifts around you!
With love and light,
