Magical Glasses that Create a Life You Love

“Don't call the world dirty because you forgot to clean your glasses.” ~ Aaron Hill

“Paradigms are like glasses. When you have incomplete

paradigms about yourself or life in general, it's like wearing glasses with the wrong prescription. That lens affects how you see everything else.” ~ Sean Covey


ave you ever read the mystical novel, A Wrinkle in Time? It’s a hero’s journey where a young girl

named Meg sets out to find her lost father. She is guided by three wise women, Mrs. Whatsit, Mrs. Who, and Mrs. Which. Each wise woman gives Meg a gift to help her complete her journey. Mrs. Who’s gift is a pair of eyeglasses that allows Meg to see what other’s cannot. I want to give you that gift of sorts—the

gift of seeing that which is not normally available within your perception. The gift is this: everything you see you filter through a pair of emotional glasses. So, if you feel fear you see the world as a fearful place, and in turn, if you feel love then you see a loving world. And you can receive this gift by using

it. By understanding that what you see is filtered through the type of glasses you are wearing.

There are only two basic emotions: love and fear. There are only two basic emotions:

love and fear. Every “good” emotion you feel is an offshoot of love while every “bad” emotion you feel is an offshoot of fear. So, in essence you have two pairs of glasses – two methods of perception – see- ing through love or seeing through fear.

Why is perception important? Your perceptions are how you create

the world you live in. Whichever pair of magical glasses you choose to use shows you what you look for.

You create your world. You create the world you live in by

what you focus on. Events of themselves are neutral. You have the power to overlay meaning, thus creating what that event reflects back to you. Most of us operate backwards, think-

ing the events have meaning and we are at the mercy of their meaning. Typically, we think the event is the cause and our meaning is the effect. However, these magical glasses allow

you to see that the meaning we give an event is the cause, making our reaction the effect. For example, let’s say a friend is late

for a lunch date, which makes you an- noyed by the lack of respect she is showing you and a little stressed because you are feeling short on time. In your old thought system this would seem like a natural cause and effect rela- tionship. She’s late which caused you to feel annoyed and stressed. In this new thought system I’m teaching you that you are choosing to overlay annoyed and stressed onto the neutral fact that your friend is not sitting across from you at an appointed time.

You have the power to create a life you love.

You have the power to create a life

you love. Don’t believe me? Try this new system out. Take the next seemingly small thing that happens that causes a negative reaction in you. Pause for a moment and imagine putting on glasses that focus on the negative and “see” what meaning you create. Then imaging taking off

those glasses and putting on ones that focus on
