This is the world as I see it:

1) People are usually kind and supportive, and have good intentions, even it does not seem that way.

2) The universe always sends people and situations to us for our soul growth.

3) Once we know what we want, the universe will give us 100% support by sending you resources in the form of books, emails, people, casual conversations, TV programs, radio programs, cheques, lottery winnings, etc.

4) When we keep an open mind, we allow into our life all of the above and more!

5) People are merely a reflection of who we are - the shadows that we are afraid to see in ourselves as well as the beautiful aspects that we deny in the name of "humility".

6) Even the challenging people and situations are there to help us to recognise the resources within us.

7) Everything ALWAYS happens in perfect timing, but we need to keep an open mind to recognise the value of the seemingly ill-timed.

8) When we trust ourselves, when we trust the people around us and when we trust life, we never get let down (especially keeping in mind pt 7) and somehow, all of our needs (and often enough, even the wants!) would get fulfilled eventually.

9) Every moment is an opportunity for joy and miracles.

10) We are all here for the same reason, to heal and reconnect to our spiritual purpose and original nature - and we are all helping one another on this journey, whether we know it or not.

Well... at least this is how I see it NOW. It may change next week, or even tomorrow.

And FYI, I have not always been seeing the world in this way. In fact, once upon a time, if I were to read this list, I would probably be feeling depressed and angry, because I do NOT see the world that way. Thanks to EFT and other healing steps I have taken, my mind is no longer so clouded with thoughts and beliefs which are simply untrue.

I hope that this list is not making any of you out there feel depressed!

On the contrary, I think that despite everything that has happened in our lives that may make us feel less positive about the world, deep deep deep within us we know that none of these negative stuff is true. That in that place inside you, there is a list that you have which would be very similar to mine.

And you know what? Once you dig up that list, and live it in your life, life would be filled with miracles and all things good.

Look for that list... and I welcome you to share it with me. Btw, I do love it when any of you email me personally to share your thoughts about my article. So please do so, especially if you have been wanting to but hesitating for some reason. Your email would be so well appreciated by me!

Here's a tapping exercise for you today:

Tapping on the Karate Chop point, say "Even though I definitely don't see the world in that way, and I refuse to see it because life is NOT all happiness and light, I deeply and completely forgive myself and all the people and situations that have contributed to my current beliefs about the world, and I am willing to release all that no longer serves me anymore, so that I may see the world as it really is, whatever that may be."

Tap on the remaining EFT points noticing the thoughts and emotions that arise as you do so. Finish off by tapping 2-3 rounds of the EFT points and saying "Seeing the world as it really is" at each point.

May your world be filled with miracles and may you recognise yourself as the miracle that you are, just by being yourself!
