We think we make decisions all the time. We say, “I am going to buy a house. Then there is a caveat , “when I have the money.” When we word things like this, the statement I am going to buy a house remains a hope but is not a decision. Ask yourself, Have I made a decision to achieve this goal, or is it still a hope? In this vlog we are going to discuss the difference and why is it important.
Difference between a Hope and a Decision
A decision says, I’m doing this no matter what. Nothing else has to happen first. I do not know how I am going to get to the goal.
This is the exact opposite of the way we have been trained all of our lives. We’ve been taught to figure out how we are going to get from here to there, before we set the goal. You need to have a plan before you can move forward.
How the Universe Moves You Forward
Once you make a decision to do something, no matter what, then the universe, begins to move you towards your goal. We call this decision, making a determination.
It is this decision to do something, this determination, that allows our connection with the Mystic Law to work. Modern day science, in You Are the Universe, Discovering Your Cosmic Self and Why It Matters would say that we are living in a conscious universe. The authors, Deepak Chopra and Menas Kafatos describe it as a continuous dynamic flow of consciousness, emerging from the universal field of pure consciousness. That consciousness, that life force, the Mystic Law manifests into matter, energy, worlds and beings.
At our core, we humans experience the same consciousness, that pure potentiality, we call it the Mystic law, and have the same creative capacity.
Consciousness with intention fixes the quantum field, forming the building blocks of creation and beginning the process of manifestation. Without a decision the quantum field remains unfixed and goals are not achieved.
To Determine Whether You Have a Hope or have Made a Decision
To determine whether you have made a decision or still have a hope, ask
yourself the following:
Do I have some condition which has to be met before I start with this
Do I have reservations that need to be resolved before I can proceed?
Am I insisting that I have a plan to get me from here to there before I
Am I envisioning my goal always in the future? If so, it will remain
always in the future.
Do I know without a doubt that my goal is already accomplished?
Do I have fears that come up when I think about moving forward?
Do I need to find support?
Do I have beliefs which are counterproductive to achieving this goal?
Do I secretly believe it is impossible, for example.
Different Laws in the World of Faith
There are completely different laws in the world of faith. In the world of
- set the goal without doing any strategizing beforehand. You make the
decision that this is the goal you want to accomplish, for example you are
going to buy the house, period.
- You keep the end in mind. When you keep
the end in mind, the money comes when needed. You don’t wait for the
money before deciding to buy the house.
When you make a decision, you have no idea of how you are going to get to your goal. This requires faith, that somehow the universe will know how to take you to your goal.
I’m sure each of you has had the experience of making the decision to do something without knowing how it was going to happen. Then, it seems, almost by magic, things fall into place. For example I wanted to take a weekend workshop that was going to cost $2000. Ijust knew I was going to get there without having any idea of how that was going to happen. I didn’t have the money and had no idea how I was going to be able to go. But once I made the decision, I was supported by someone who did have the money. All I did was state that I wanted to go, and the offer was made.
It’s important to realize that when a decision is made, no one knows how they are going to get to their goal.. Making a decision is more frightening than having a hope. It means we must move forward with action rather than postponing things. It tells the universe, I am serious about this goal.
Start to move forward with the first step that comes to mind. You will get ideas as you have started a dialogue with the universe. When you move forward the universe supports you to take the next step. It feels as though you are are walking blind, and in fact you are. That is why faith becomes important. The universe has unlimited ways of doing things, while we see a smaller field. This is why not trying to force a strategy is important. You might be interfering with a much better direction coming from the universe.
You will be guided step-by-step. You may get an idea of something to do while chanting or during the day someone may give you the piece of information you need. You probably still won’t know how you are going to get to your goal but you will have an idea and the direction to take the next step. When the universe guides us along a path we can only see to the next corner. When we arrive at the corner then we can see the next couple of steps forward. In this way you move forward to your goal.
If you have goals that seem to be hanging on the back burner without forward movement, you need to examine whether you have a hope or whether you have made a decision to move forward. So ask yourself the following questions.
1.Do I have some condition which has to be met before I start with this
2. Do I have reservations that need to be resolved before I can proceed?
3. Am I insisting that I have a plan to get me from here to there before I
4. Do I feel I can’t start, unless I see how I am going to achieve this
5. Am I envisioning my goal always in the future? If so, it will remain always in the future.
6. Do I know without a doubt that my goal is already accomplished?
7. Do I have fears that come up when I think about moving forward?
8. Do I need to find support?
9. Do I have beliefs which are counterproductive to achieving this goal. Do I secretly believe it is impossible for example.Once you make the decision trust the universe to guide you.
Then pay attention to ideas that come to you and take action on them, one step at a time.
Try asking yourself these questions about a goal that seems stalled.
Then leave a comment and share what happened.
