How to See the Positive in a Situation

LuminanceRiver's picture

If you define a situation as positive, no matter what the circumstances, it can then morph into that experience with the expectation you have. It is easy to know this yet hard to do it unless you get deliberate and intentional in how you experience the world. This is a call to change your perception to not defining something as bad, and to be open to how it could play out if you don't define it at all or if you are able to see any situation as potentially positive for your path. We are conditioned to judge situations as being bad or good for us, and it is hard to expect something good to come out of what has happened to you that is causing unhappiness when we think about it. That being said, we have to feel the emotions authentically first in order to move to a place of seeing the potential good. Maybe it involves stepping back and observing ourselves to do this. Reframing any situation toward the positive completely changes what is possible, though.

How do we see the good in a situation that at first seems bad?

What if you have a story playing out in your head about something, causing distress? It is often about another person. Let me share my personal situation in which feeling emotionally upset. In dealing with this, wanting to shift my perspective, upon asking for solutions, my higher self, while in meditation, gave some answers. In meditation, I receive pictures that have meanings which I can then interpret the meanings.

I was shown a web and the message that there were ten little signs in the web to explain how to do this. I saw ten little papers in the web and they had words on them. It seems like it might be relevant for others. The messages, on how to reframe a situation to the positive perspective, were these:

1. The first message is “how to weave my own destiny” thus the picture of the web, and the following ideas on how to turn a situation into a positive. It was also a reminder that I do, indeed, weave my own destiny and to take responsibility for what I have created and not blame anyone else, and there is a silver lining and higher purpose to it all.

2. The second message is “you are the ocean of love.” Love is what you are. No need to receive it or give it. No need to fight the fact that you an ocean of love, as love is all you are, always, expressing itself as you. There is no need to figure out what is right or wrong in the situation or to judge it. Become one with the ocean of love you are and this takes you beyond resistance to moving forward. The resistance is the part within you that is holding you back from immersing yourself in the ocean of love. It is a feeling of expansion to be everything, through this ocean. My guides were not saying to resist the emotion and feelings I was having, but to expand beyond them, including them as the love that I AM.

3. “We are all characters here playing roles out for our learning.” You had a script to speak lines, take action and feel a certain way for your growth and learning. It was handed to you from your higher self. Your friend or family member or person you were on stage with also had the same from their higher self. The whole play was put on by the ocean of love, the souls you are which know themselves in oneness and know themselves as individuals (the illusion). You project your essence into the forms here on earth to experience certain things but it is not real. It is an illusion.

4. “This is a dream.” The reality we experienced was a hologram for the oneness to experience itself. Being on Earth as a human is like being on the Holodeck on Star Trek. If you are not familiar with Star Trek, a Holodeck, in the fictional Star Trek universe of television shows and movies, is a simulated reality facility located on starships and starbases. It is where characters go to play in a virtual reality and act scenes out for the fun of it. Therefore, let us take this to our human experience seeing what happens as being in the Holodeck. Since you are acting things out with others, you can forgive them if you remember that this is a dream. Would you forgive a person, a friend or family member, for what happened on the Holodeck? You experience things that may be scary or get adrenaline flowing, all for the excitement, knowing it is not real while on the Holodeck. This is like reality here on earth. Another part of you, your higher self is fine through this. I can see how in the other reality of oneness, we are working together and there is complete love and no separation. We know that it is a game to play the character on Earth that we are. What a challenge it is to forget the perspective of oneness that our higher selves have! The forgiveness piece is a suggestion for when you are emotionally ready. It is not a must, and it is for you within yourself. It is an offering for when you are ready to forgive.

5. This dream is a bit like driving in a car that has the windows fogged over. You cannot see clearly. Yet you wipe the windows and now you see the path clearly. Before you had a limited viewpoint and you did the best you could driving a car (your body vehicle) through this situation which is like being nearly blind. Now that the illusion is lifted, your awareness of the dream, you can find the path and see clearly and move forward.

6. “You have accelerated to a higher gear!” You were learning and experiencing in the Holodeck aka reality, and now you graduate from that experience and get to move onto others. Let yourself see clearly and graduate.

7. This situation will lose its charge and heal over time. It is already doing so with your awareness of it.

8. Do not worry about focusing or not focusing on your story. Though reframing it as 'positive' really does help. Do not worry about forgiving. The message is “be, just be, and it will get figured out.” That kind of points to taking your eyes off of the problem with focusing somewhere else if you can.

9. Trust your heart to know what will help you feel better and how to heal. Ask within to know what will help you.

10. Tune into the feeling of the space of the heart often, to the physical heart space; and while in meditation. Your heart has some answers to share with you. Tune up the heart to the highest level of love in your prayers and meditation. Say to yourself “I now ask source to tune up my heart to the highest level of love possible. Thank you source.” Be willing to receive a transmission of love into your heart, and this will help you to move through this challenging situation and reframe the story as positive.

The really funny part of the story is that I was having a hard time shifting into a higher gear. My car also was having a hard time shifting into third gear recently which is a reflection of my life. I needed some help for the car to run better so I got a replacement of the transmission fluid. The same day, I received transmissions, from source and some good friends of light language and the neutrality field which greatly assisted. Sometimes you cannot do it alone and need help! And it is a miracle that having transmissions, I now feel fluid and I am shifting easily into the high gear. May you do the same, following your own heart's wisdom and inner guidance, and may you be supported on your path.
And so it is....
