The power of focus is becoming humorously obvious in my life.
Years ago when the movie “Enchanted” came out I watched it so many times I attracted rats and pigeons to my yard. It was a modern Cinderella story where the heroine had a great relationship with all the critters, and I focused so often on a cute scene in the movie that I could start to hum “The happy little working song” and pigeons would flock to the yard. Every night rats appeared all over the lawn as well.
It was like the word was out, “This one thinks we’re cute!” OMG! That was a bit much and I didn’t want to poison them, so instead I focused on a quiet peaceful yard and ignored “the rat problem.” Mother Nature came up with her own solution. One morning I woke up to see a coyote in my yard, napping lazily after eating rat-McNuggets all night. Ew! Poor rats! Nature did balance the situation. I am sure that if I had adopted a fearful, angry, or defensive focus I would have just attracted more!
Lately, have been watching a wonderful older gentleman on Youtube at night for a “feel good” video before bed. He is known as the “raccoon whisperer” becuase every night he feeds a huge family of raccoons. They love him so much they give him kisses, leave their young for him to babysit and keep him company. He started this after his wife died, put it on video, and attracted a huge following of people wanting to watch something good during the pandemic. His love for these little beings is just adorable. It makes my heart happy.
To my great surprise, I was eating dinner the other night with a friend when we noticed a cat had wandered into my backyard. Suddenly the cat bent her back up so far, she looked like a feline bobby pin! What was bothering her? Out of my planter box popped a mama and baby raccoon! OMG! They were adorable! I tried to get a photo but they ran off into the sanctuary of a cozy corner where I couldn’t see them. I’ve never seen raccoons in my neighborhood before and I’ve been here over two decades. Coincidence? Or had my focus on them drawn them vibrationally right to me? I know the answer. The angels were clear it was a result of my focus.
Likewise, focus is bringing me an amazing crop of eggplants. After not growing them for decades I have one that is now about 3′ tall. It has super soft fuzzy leaves that I pet every day, while admiring the gorgeous flowers. I got my first fruit a few weeks ago, halved it, cut deep slits, drowned it in olive oil until it couldn’t hold more, then baked it at 400 degrees until it came out as an olive-oily eggplant dip that tastes delicious on chips. The plant felt my gratitude and went to work! She immediately produced another large fruit and I now have sixmore on the way. Such a sweet simple pleasure!
Now let’s talk about the idea of watering the fruit of the weeds on the “more important” topics, as some would say (although I personally think love is the only “important” topic, no matter the subject!) I have generally ignored the “weeds” around covid as much as I can. I’m not burying my head in the sand. I’ve seen the death tolls, but I’ve also talked to some who have died of covid who explained why they left. I know there has been great suffering, but I have also seen amazing grace and amazing growth. I am aware of the science. My dad who is a scientist feeds me a steady stream of scientific facts. I listen to my guidance, wear my mask when required, and wash my hands. I disinfect stuff that comes into my house when it feels intuitively inspired.
However, I am not hooked on the drama, nor am I reading or listening to daily reports that plug me into the fearful mass consciousness around the subject. Instead I’m just living my life, happily focusing on all the good and refusing to get sucked into the fear that seems so prevalant. I’m not engaging in arguments about the “right” way to handle this. Instead I’m supporting people in figuring out what is right for themselves. When people try to superimpose their opinions on me, I listen with respect, and support them in loving and listening to their guidance for themselves.
I ignore the constant projections of doom and gloom, and continue in my happy focus on helping people heal, helping people who want to get the shot without side effects, helping people who don’t want to get the shot work with light to be well, helping people who are afraid be soothed with both science and spirit, depending on their balance of focus. I focus on the wonderful growth we are all going through, the increased vibration of love, the improvements I’ve made in my own life, and how happy I am to be able to assist. I am focused on helping my clients, enjoying my garden, organizing my house, and enjoying conversations with family.
I do not want to water the weeds of fear and doom. I only want to water the vibrations of love in every area of life.
I had yet one more incident last week that was quite telling regarding focus. I was talking to someone that had healed after a nasty case of covid. As this person recounted their story I was right there with them, very tuned in to the “weeds’ (the pain, fear, suffering) around it a bit too much. Within minutes after the conversation ended, I started getting a raspy sore throat and stuffy nose. All I could think was “Really? I’m getting really, really good at focusing!” I laughed, sat down, and focused on the light within, the fact that this dear soul was now healthy and happy, and within minutes all the “symptoms” went away. Now when I listen to people in fear or pain or even recounting stories of fear or pain I focus on the light inside of them and all is well. It is pretty amazing how powerful we truly are!
Here are a few pointers on how to water the fruits rather than the weeds…
1. As always pay attention to how your focus makes you feel
Your feelings are your indicator that tell you if your focus is shifting you into a high vibe or a low vibe. If you start feeling bad, fearful, upset, etc., this is a strong signal to shift your focus as soon as possible. If you are in front of someone complaining or recounting tales of agony or fear, shift your focus to the light within them or shift the conversation. If something is upsetting, seek healthy comfort. If you are upset, call on your angels and ask them to compost your anger – imagine that as you have a good rant with them, you are handing them dense energy to be recycled – as if you’re throwing logs on a fire of white light. Even focusing on this light that burns the density away is a better focus.
If you feel happy, inspired or some other positive emotions keep your focus where it is or on something that keeps you in that space.
2. Remember to focus on what you want, not what you don’t
What you want to get rid of and what you want to empower are two sides of the same coin. Focus on one is “watering the weeds,” while focus on the other is “watering the fruits.”
If I want the world to be healthy and happy, I focus on that reality instead of watering the weeds by focusing on fearing or hating a virus.
If I want a more equitable world I do not fight prejudice. I focus on empowering tolerance, kindness, love of diversity.
If I want my own body to feel good, I focus on the fact that there is great light always seeking to balance and heal. I focus on parts of me that do feel good. I woke up with my back painfully off the other day. Instead of focusing on the pain, I breathed and gave thanks for Divine light that could easily set things right. I focused on feeling good in nature, remembered wonderful hikes, and focused on how awesome it felt when things pop back in place. As I was laying down,” watering” the good feelings, a surge of energy went through my body and I got a self-adjustment!
3. Give thanks
There is nothing like appreciating all the blessings in life to help you water the fruits of love. Challenge yourself every time you feel upset to count your blessings, and you will find your vibe rising so much more quickly and easily the more you practice.
I know there are plenty of challenges these days. It is an intense time to be sure! Nonetheless, we get to choose where we focus, and if we focus on anything that feels more like love then we become the ones who will encourage its growth in our own hearts, our own lives, and on our sweet planet.
