Right now our country, the world, and perhaps your own life, is in a tizzy. Things are changing faster than we can blink our eyes, and it doesn’t always appear to be beneficial. But one thing is for sure, we can pull out of this mess if we believe we can. Look at history and you’ll see we have always overcome any problematic situation, but in the process many things had to change. That’s where we are today, in need of changing the way many things are done and the beliefs that created it.

However, change for the better cannot be found while remaining in the same place with the same people who created the problem in the first place, because it is impossible to solve a problem using the same mindset and vibration as what created it. It is necessary to step out of the problem and connect with our Higher Power, God to me, in order to resolve the situation with ease on a higher level.

By the time you read this article there will have been many tea parties all over the country. With tax day approaching people are rebelling over the way their hard-earned money is being spent as well as that of their children and grandchildren. Job loss is scary and has hit my family as well as many thousands across the country. Greed, corruption, deceit, defamation, and violence have surfaced with a vengeance in our world and people it seems are finally awakening and will no longer sit quietly and take it. Thus, plans have been made for the tea parties. This makes a statement to the community, country and world that it’s time for change, change that will raise us up into a higher place rather than continuing to spiral us further down.

While you and I may not have a solution for the country or even our community, we can begin with our own lives. James Arthur Ray, author of “Harmonic Wealth” and a participant in the movie “The Secret”, tells us over and over that everything we need is already present in our universe even at this moment, that we have all the resources we need right in front of our face. But the secret is to become resourceful with the resources we have. What does this mean?

Often we get so caught up in the problem that we cannot see any way out. It’s known that we as humans cannot see the big picture nor solve the problem while in the middle of the problem. If you step away from the middle of it and simply surrender the problem to your Higher Power, you open up the channels for the universe to bring you a solution. Furthermore, the reason we cannot see the abundance or resources around us is because we’re too busy focusing on the mess we’re in. Everything we need to create what we want is already in our life.

How many times, as you look back at a situation to which you thought there was no feasible solution, did you see it resolve with ease in a way you had never thought of? Where do you think the solution came from? It didn’t really come from you if you were still focusing on the situation because a negative vibration only creates more of the same. Out of the blue someone offers a suggestion, an email pops into your mailbox with information that gives you an idea, someone offers to help you that you can hardly believe, and so forth. We’ve all experienced this many times. And if you thought of a solution, I can assure you that your openness to divine assistance allowed the solution to pop into your mind and think it!

Here’s how it works. First, you have to surrender the situation, Now surrender doesn’t mean you continue to think about it and try to figure out a solution. Surrender actually means you let go of it and don’t think about it anymore. Easier said than done, right? Okay, so you might have to surrender it many times before you get it, but once you get it you are free to focus on what you do want. Maybe it’s time to find a different job so that’s why your job suddenly disappeared. Or maybe a financial challenge surfaced in your life so you could learn to budget better or simply become more resourceful with what you have. Many individuals became resourceful when everything around them looked bleak and they got an idea that wouldn’t have come without the life challenge.

My illness, which appeared over 15 years ago, took me in a totally different direction from where I was. I didn’t like the challenge and I couldn’t find a way out at first. Finally, I let go of the problem and accepted it as something I had to deal with. It took time, but as a result not only did I heal after much research and learning, but I am now able to help many others who are desperate for answers and want to heal. So the bigger picture was that by traveling this path I am able to be of service on a much grander scale and have utilized much resourcefulness to get there: studying, research, experience, writing articles, and listening to and utilizing much divine wisdom.

In the process of using our resources and becoming resourceful, there are many things that may need to be discarded: old beliefs and patterns, relationships that no longer work, fears that are stopping your forward movement, and any block you have placed on your path. When I was trying so hard to get well and listening to everyone around me, it wasn’t working. So I finally let it all go and began researching myself. In the process I had to believe that I could get well and connect with that positive energy. That’s when everything began to shift and new and different bits of knowledge came my way. The same thing has happened over and over again in various aspects of my life, and always, without fail, some idea or thought pops in from somewhere out there and I find answers, solutions, resources. When I let go of the old beliefs and patterns and allowed the new ones that worked for me to enter my life, all kinds of miracles happened. The same can be true for you.

So what do you need to throw out right now? What things are not working and need to be revolted against and tossed? Why not make a list today of what isn’t working in your life…what you don’t want anymore.

Then throw it out into the sea so to speak, to be washed away with the tide. It’s not helping you and is costing you way too much to hang onto it. Once you get rid of it all you can open to receive exactly what you do want. So you want a job or a new job but you are told by everyone around you that you will have a hard time finding a job. Don’t buy into that.

Instead, set your sights on what you’d like to have and stay focused on it. You say you need more money in your life. Simply say every day that your income is constantly increasing, but you have to see it and believe it for it to happen. You’ve prayed for a soul mate for some time but he/she hasn’t appeared yet. Put the intention out there and let it go so the universe can bring him/her to you. But while you are waiting for any of these things, clear out the blocks and beliefs that are not working for you. Create your own tea party and get rid of all you no longer want. Destroy them! Our first tea party got the attention it was seeking, right? Changes were made and good results appeared. The same can be true for you!
