No matter what you’re experiencing right now, it’s okay to have hope. In fact, your soul is probably begging for it. Hope is expansive and allows us to receive our prayers. Sometimes, we have to become the person for whom our prayers can be answered in order to have them answered at all. The truth is, when we tighten up, contract and loose hope, we disconnect ourselves from ourselves and in doing so, we disconnect from source energy. We jump into our minds and out of our being; therefore, we can’t even SEE the answer, the subtle cues or the lit up path because we’re disengaged from our internal guidance system. Albert Einstein said, “We can’t solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them”. So, if we want to change our reality, we have to change our thinking, we have to change our consciousness and we have to be willing and vulnerable enough to relax into hope; even if it’s little at a time. In this way, hope becomes a conscious prayer that expands us into receiving mode. By allowing hope, we literally change the dial of our own frequency and create a new rhythm, the rhythm that the Universe feels, responds to, and reflects back into our experience.
