The last two articles on Focus Mastery spoke about some things that create problems with focus. However, what causes you or anyone to choose that which does not help you master your focus and get what you want out of life?

It all starts in your mind.

If you haven’t read How to Improve Your Focus, please do. It contains an easy focus exercise for you and children.

You are always at a place of choice. The tricky thing is that life moves so quickly that it can be difficult to realize you have a choice. Did you ever make a decision by default or to be polite not realizing a better offer was available? You just didn’t see it – you just weren’t aware of it at the time because you were so focused on getting your errands done; or worrying about where the money to pay the bills would come from; or that person trying to distract you; or whatever fear-based distracting thoughts or people you chose to focus on at the time.

If you’re anything like me, you probably kicked yourself mentally and emotionally for a very long time afterward (not a good idea by the way). For example: How could I not have seen that opportunity; right turn; exit on the freeway; whatever the other better and more loving path had I only been more aware and less distracted at the time?

Spirit knocks gently at first. If we choose fear or unforgiveness of self or others – even unconsciously, rather than listen to our guidance, we don’t always get the best results. I can tell you from personal experience that when I understand, listen to and act on my guidance, nothing less than miracles happen in my life. This is true for everyone. I know you’ve experienced this as well. It’s part of being human.

My wish for you, your family and all of us is that we Love so much that fear can’t take hold of our minds. Fear is only in the mind. God is love. God is everywhere and we are made from the stuff of God. God wants the best for us. Focus on love in its many forms with joy and gratitude and let it permeate your mind and life. You and your family deserve the best.

“Once you make a decision, the Universe conspires to make it happen.” – Emerson

Enjoy being the gift you came here to be – naturally.

Explore the issue of feeling safe on the inside at The Gift of You blog.

An old Cherokee is teaching his grandson about life. “A fight is going on inside me,” he said to the boy.

“It is a terrible fight and it is between two wolves. One is evil – he is anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego.”

He continued, “The other is good – he is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, and faith. The same fight is going on inside you – and inside every other person, too.”

The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather, “Which wolf will win?”

The old Cherokee simply replied, “The one you feed.”

Said differently, everything comes down to a choice between fear and Love.  If you fear something happening more than you love something else happening, the stronger energy has the greater pull on your attention.  Heal the underlying issues that create the fear (or other negative emotions) and you will have an easier time focusing on that which you love and moving toward it.
