I had attempted to address this question in a video blog but the sound of the breaking waves behind me drowned out the audio. I know, sucks to be me. This question though is focused not so much on what you physically see, but what you see within.
The answer to ‘what do you see’ is one focused on what you see in your life, how you experience life, and what meaning you make of it. Asking yourself this simple question can open doors to a wide range of answers. The journey into this question took me deeper into asking myself another question: what do I want to see?
Examining life’s meaning often comes down to expectations. If you expect to see joy, love, harmony, and peace, than what you see in others and your circumstances will likely be in alignment with those expectations. You will see the good in others even in situations surrounded by negative. You will experience circumstances through the lens of what good can be gained or learned. When you want to see light, even the darkest of clouds will not hold you back. As the old adage goes, there is a silver lining to every cloud.
On the other hand, if what you want to see is the negative, you will most certainly find it. If you believe that others are out to get you, that their motivation is to cause harm, or that you are always the victim, then you will experience exactly that. I know people who no matter the situation, they can always find a reason to be sour or critical. Some can take even the most joyful celebration and find a way to criticize it. They may question the motivation even behind a gift believing you are simply trying to smooth things over before the other shoe drops.
The key then is not in the situation itself, but in what you choose to look for. If you want greater joy in your life then, you should start by looking for it in every situation. Assume that others are seeking only to offer sincerity and authenticity and you will always find the silver lining. If however you question someone’s motivation, you will find yourself increasingly bitter and resentful.
We create the life we live. This can be great news for those seeking to build greater satisfaction and peace. It also means there is personal responsibility and accountability for what you choose to experience starts and ends with what you see. I believe that those who go through life as victims have chosen to relinquish their personal power to factors outside themselves. They don’t want to recognize that their present dire circumstances were of their own making. It’s much easier to blame someone or something else.
Start today by claiming your birthright as the champion and hero of your own life. Believe that you see light and love wherever you look, and you will find it coming back to you multiplied. If you want to see and experience the many gifts this life has for you, look in the mirror. And as you see the reflection before you, ask yourself: what do I see?
I believe in the transformative power of human connection to elevate joy, restore balance, and support inner healing as you seek your highest purpose. My purpose in life is to be a guide, to share the wisdom of the Universe I’ve been gifted with, and to see others succeed. Nothing brings me greater joy than to see others step into their purpose in a vibrant and highly energetic way.
