Hey! Where’s the remote?

In this wonderful age of technology there are remote controls for everything. There are even remotes that control ALL the remotes so you only need one rather than one for each item.

They take care of changing channels, music, turning on your lights, and you can even start your car from the comfort of the chair you are sitting in!

I had to laugh when the new air conditioner in my bedroom came with a remote. Really now! My bedroom is only 16 feet across! Needless to say, I love using it.

I can lie in bed, change the temperature or turn it off without moving. I also get a kick out of it because it’s just plain ridiculous! Have we really turned into a society based on comfort and remote controls? 🙂

How about your life? Have you ever felt like someone had control over your life? If you’ve ever felt out of control, you may want to ask yourself; Whose control are you out of? Who holds the remote and changes the channel? Is it you?

Have you noticed that when you try to take time for yourself, meditate or god forbid create something new, how much energy there is that says you can’t change the program? Are there energies or emotions in your life that seem to take over?

If you feel as if something is controlling you, you might very well be right! There are many things that have been programmed into our lives. Some of those things are so ingrained within that it’s a challenge to distinguish what is  programming and what is our truth.

As you awaken and open up more to separating your truth from say, your mother’s or father’s programming, it can be uncomfortable. It can be especially difficult when it comes to relationships, jobs or even how you choose to live your life.

In many ways the economy is helping people change the channel to the program THEY want to watch. 🙂 I’ve seen attorneys become massage therapists, executives deciding to choose quality of life over bringing in money, and on an even broader scale, people are deciding to create or work on something they are passionate about rather than go back to a job that controlled them each day.

Earlier I mentioned that I thought my remote was ridiculous. On second thought, maybe it’s not! When you have a remote, it’s easy to change the channel! You just push the button and it instantly clears the old program to the one you want to see! Perhaps life is much the same.

When YOU hold the remote YOU are in control! You can change the program at will and with ease! Why not take a moment to see if YOU hold the remote. If not, take it back! Then if it’s time to change the channel, go ahead! There’s nothing stopping you when YOU are in control! 🙂 ~Shine Your Light Debbie
