Are You A Creator Or A Victim?

A wise man once said that positive action matter far more than positive thinking. It is by acting as if you are the type of person you want to become that leads you to become that person. This is, in fact, an old concept that is widely used across every area of life.

The principle of acting “as if” works because our brain cannot differentiate between what is real and what is being imagined. Work within to identify the root emotion until you can feel the feelings that will come along with achieving your desire. Whatever it is that you want, you are actually pursuing the feelings. The only reason why people want certain things or conditions is because in having them would make them feel better.

Physical life experience is a 3D image created in the Mind, and it results from our perceptions. This 3D image is made up of thought (which gives form), and feelings (which creates substance) that we take action based upon what we perceive.

Sense Perception

Our physical life experience is defined by anything and everything we experience through the five senses, which are what plug us into and allow us to experience this realm of matter. After all, we don’t really directly experience reality — our brains do. We send limited signals we received from our senses to our brain, and that’s where we process what we experience: sight, touch, taste, smell, and sound.

The illusion of separation, then, is the false impression that you are separate from everyone and everything else in the known universe because of our differences. Our five senses naturally lead us to adopt this objective frame of mind and therefore to our own misunderstanding of the world. It is a false impression because our perception of reality may not be an accurate reflection of the real thing.

There is no such thing as actual reality. There is only your perception of reality. Two people may see the same thing, but they will really have different interpretations of it. No one has the same perception as they view or examine things because people may base it on their experiences in life. This is the concept of duality. When this happens, it becomes easy to forget our connection to Source energy, which is the source of Oneness, Wholeness and pure Love.

Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it and it will be yours.

– The Bible, Mark 11.24

Heightened senses occur when we sense potential danger that arises as a threat in our external environment, or anything that can cause us harm. Our body’s response to stress enables us to react quickly to life-threatening situations, either to fight or to flee to safety. Unfortunately, the body can also overreact to stressors that are not life-threatening, such as traffic jams, work pressure, and family difficulties. Since where we place our attention is where we place our energy, then all our focus is invested onto the material side of existence which includes our body and everything in the immediate environment.

Stress triggers negative emotions that cause self-limiting beliefs. The more embedded these beliefs are, the more we assent to the idea of duality and polarity, which formed our moral codes of good vs bad, right vs wrong. When we dwell in lack and separation, we are operating from the victim mindset.

Victim Mindset

To live as the victim is to see your entire life through a perspective that things constantly happen ‘to’ you. Victimization is thus a combination of seeing most things in life as negative, beyond your control, and as something you should be given sympathy for experiencing as you believe you deserve better.

If your energy is invested in this reality, you allow that external condition to control how you think and feel. When we default to ascribing that we have no power over our circumstances, then it relinquishes us from having to take any action over ourselves and our lives. By denying self-responsibility, you deny the capacity which you possess to be responsible for your actions and the attainment of your goals.

There are only a few who believe they have the capacity to change, and only these few will plan, execute and dream of a better future despite the challenges they currently face. You have to believe that you can take your decisions and make the best efforts to shape existence the way you want it to be. You are the creator of your own reality.

Capture the feeling associated with your realized wish by assuming the feeling that would be yours were you in possession of the thing you desire, and your wish will objectify itself.

– Neville Goddard

When we fail to recognize that, we find ourselves perpetually waiting for something in our outer world to take away the feeling of lack, incompleteness, or separation in our inner world. The solution then is to learn to create the emotions from within and feel the elevated feelings such as love, joy, freedom and gratitude, on command, rather than waiting for something outside to dictate how we should respond.

Your Thoughts Create Your Feelings

When we invest ourselves, our time and our emotions towards healing our own heart, we accept that each experience is an opportunity to learn, grow and expand. That does not mean that we live in denial, but it enables us to bounce back faster instead of slipping into despair. It means that we accept our humanity, feel whatever feeling arises with self-compassion and self-acceptance, and moving on quickly. You need to discover yourself and find out who and what you want to be rather than letting external influences dictate that for you. This is especially true when you’re navigating through difficult times.

As we become more emotionally self-reliant, we realize that the path to reclaiming happiness and wholeness cannot be found in others; rather we have to look within ourselves to find it. According to the universal laws, everything is energy. All energy vibrates continuously although its frequency can change and often does in relation to our thoughts and emotions. Thoughts are electric and emotions are magnetic. It is our dominant vibrational frequency that determines what we attract into our life experience.

When we feel good, our emotions have a high frequency as opposed to when we feel bad, they emit a low vibrational frequency. Therefore by acting as if you are the successful person you want to be, your mind makes it real because it cannot tell the difference. And when your action is consistent with your emotion, it further strengthens your mind and makes you believe that you are the person you were meant to be. And subsequently, the results will follow.

When change begins to manifest in your external life as a result of the internal outcome of thoughts and feelings, you switch from being a victim to a creator.

A New State Of Being

You embrace your power to affect change in the world and the ability to make the best of your current situation. That is when you move outside of duality and polarity into wholeness and Oneness which is the creative energy of Source, where everything material is connected.

It is only by recognizing that you have the power to be the author of your own life that it is possible to create the reality you want. We need not be at the mercy of our emotions, rather when we awaken to our genuine creative powers and become master of our own emotions, we are awaken to a higher quality of life.
