If You Don’t Like Your Circumstance Change It

GOOD MORNING! IT’S! FRIDAY!
Today is a beautiful day. No matter the weather, no matter the circumstance, if you’re alive to read this your world is a wonderful place to be.
So, you’re sitting there saying, “Well, things might be great for you, but they suck for me.”
Do you know what I say to that? I say, “If you don’t like your circumstance, change it.”
Now, you’re saying, “There’s nothing I can do.”
I say, “Bull!”
Sure, there may be a few things going on that are out of your control. But let’s think about that. I said out of your control, but they’re not out of the good creator’s control.
Every day, I scroll through my newsfeed or hang out with folks in various places and they’re all professing their faith. Yet, they’re talking about things that are out of their control.
I’m left wondering, “If everyone is so faithful and believes that God is all powerful, why do they not turn their lives over to him and allow him to actually work?”
In 2020, after reading Wayne Dyer’s books on manifestation I decided I was going to change my life. Following his advice, I sat down and decided exactly what I wanted to see made different. Then, I set aside one hour each day, during which I turned off all devices, locked the door, pulled the shades, made myself something to drink and sat myself down and spent the entire hour having a conversation with Mother Father God.
Before you get all hung up in semantics God is God no matter how you recognize him.
Anyhow, I talked to my heavenly parents as if they were in the room. I told them all that was wrong in my life. I spoke about the things I’d done which had landed me in the situation I was in. I admitted all my shortcomings, all my mistakes and all my wrongdoing. Then, I asked for and accepted one hundred percent their forgiveness. And what’s more, I forgave myself.
This took an entire six-months to become a reality.
After I’d accomplished that, I then began telling them what I wanted to be different.
I also spent time talking to those with whom I needed to reconcile with as if they were in the room.
I explained truthfully all I’d done and why. I asked their forgiveness and then, after the year was complete, on the exact date on which I’d begun I turned the whole mess over to the power which had created me and thought no more of it.
I’d done all there was to do and now the test was that I had to believe these things would take place.
Since that time, I’ve been reunited with my daughter, with whom I’d been estranged for eight years. I’ve moved from a house I could not afford into a wonderful apartment which meets all my financial and physical needs. I’ve qualified and begun receiving part time caregiver services and am the proud owner and handler of my second Seeing Eye® Dog.
In short, everything I placed into Mother Father God’s hands has happened.
What else happened? During that year of Meditation, Prayer, and Manifestation the ways in which I did things changed. Because I was following the teachings of my faith without fail even on the days of total bleakness, I began to realize that there were things I was doing which were standing in the way of those things I wanted.
When I made those lifestyle changes and began living in this way of complete faith the results were and are amazing.
So, don’t tell me you’ve no control. All you must do is get in alignment with the Holy Spirit and all things are possible.
Stand on the promises given you and you will never go wrong.
I know this to be true because…
There is no part of my life which does not belong to the Goddess.
There is no part of my body which does not belong to the goddess.
I am she and she is me.
We are one yet we are we.
So! Mote! It! Be!

Author Victoria Zigler Says…
This was a gripping read that was hard to put down. Some of the events were emotionally difficult to read about, especially knowing they were stories of true events, while others I read with delighted interest. But the whole thing was beautifully written, with wonderful descriptions that had me feeling I was right there at the time, and either glad to be a part of the experience or wishing I could step in to stop the inevitable from happening. And the ending was tied up neatly enough that I didn’t feel it ended too abruptly, while still leaving things open for the continuation of the story, I’m desperate to read.
Author Trish Hubschman Says…
Pathway to Freedom Broken and Healed: Book One How a Seeing Eye Dog Retrieved My Life Second Edition, by Patty Fletcher is the author’s own story about courage and determination, as a blind person and a woman, and the intense love and trust between human and dog. When she’s in her 40s, Patty decides to get her first seeing eye dog. She wants to be able to do more on her own and be less dependent on the man she loves. After training, she takes Campbell home. He’s more than just a guide dog. He’s her best friend, her protector, her sidekick. Her relationship with her fiancé is rough, but the one with her dog is perfect. She confides in Campbell, cries to him, and he licks her face, nuzzles her neck, and wags his tail. It’s heartwarming and beautiful, upsetting, and scary too because of the fiancé. Everyone should read this book, blind or sighted. It’s about life and it is incredible. I couldn’t stop reading it. It kept pulling me along. I give it a 5-star review.
