Don't compare

While this might not seem like a holiday topic, today we wish to speak to you about the tendency to compare yourselves to others. You see dear ones, we do see so many of you upon the earth at this time wishing you had what others have, feeling as if you have fallen short of the mark somehow because you can't buy all the presents you want, you don't yet enjoy the lifestyle you desire, haven't yet found the means to live in your dream home, or you don't know how to meet man/woman of your wildest dreams... and yet others do have these things.

When you find yourself coveting what others have, remember dear ones, you can have these things too. You can use the tendency to compare as an indicator that there is something you wish to create. You wish to create more abundance. You wish to create greater love. You want to live in a home that elevates your spirit. You want to sooth the world's pains, loneliness, and ills. These are all good things! These are authentic desires. But stop there, because a jealous heart or one that compares is a heart that feels lack, unworthiness, despair and a sense of resignation. A heart filled with truth says, "Oh look at that. I am feeling jealousy. I am comparing myself with others. It is time to acknowledge my heart. It is time to create!" Stop asking why others have what you do not, and simply start creating!

Thank those who have what you do not. If they have achieved their situations in integrity, in a good way, imagine you are in their shoes. What would it feel like? Celebrate! They are showing you the way. Focus on that feeling every day. In truth you want a feeling. You think it comes from a situation or thing, but in truth you can find that feeling just by imagining you have the situation or thing you want already. Your external reality will mirror your inner one. Fill your inner reality with the life you want now, and then watch it manifest in the external world. Spend time affirming, imagining, basking in bliss in an imaginary reality where you already have what you want. The feelings you seek are there all the time. Give into them, and soon your reality will begin to shift. The universe responds always to love.

So when you find yourself saying, "Oh I wish I had what they have," in a way that is jealous, longing, or in any way not powerful, stop. Like a child asking Santa for a present, say the very same thing in a whole different and powerful way. "Dear God, I am making a wish for what that other person has. I feel a desire in my heart. I know I am worthy of it. Please bring this to me in the right time and the right way." And then dear ones, like a child waiting for their presents, know this Presence hears you and is going to work in your life, as long as you, like a child, Believe.
