There are so many illusions in our world.
I’m not talking about those performed by
magicians, I’m talking about the illusions
that we believe are reality. The illusion that
locks you into thinking that you aren’t good
enough, fast enough, smart enough, know enough
and on and on.
Take this picture of my daughter Sophie.
The obvious illusion in this
picture is that Sophie is holding
the CN Tower with her hand.
The reality is that she
is no where near the CN Tower.
However, if this was the first time that
you had seen the CN Tower and you
knew nothing else about it you would
probably assume that it’s not very
big (or that my daughter is a giant!!).
From here on you would
create your reality about the CN Tower and about my daughter.
This of course is an obvious illusion and may seem a little
ridiculous, however there are so many daily illusions that
we have made into our reality without ever questioning
why they are there and if they are empowering you or not.
I believe that we are in the midst of a great shake down
so that you can indeed question each illusion in your
life, realize that it does not have to be your reality, set
it free and then create your own reality.
I also believe that this is why we have experienced
the horrific oil spill in the Gulf. We live in an illusion
that fossil fuels are the only source of energy that we
can use. This illusion is being maintained by the
mass consciousness and those that stand to profit
from it. As history shows, it often takes something
dramatic to cause humanity to question and then
find better ways.
You are probably feeling shaken up in a lot of areas
in your life. That’s wonderful. You are being made to
look at what you think is reality but is most likely
just an illusion that you accepted because of something
that happened or something that someone said in
It doesn’t have to be that way. I’m not saying that
you have to spend your life questioning everything,
but I am saying that 90% of how you think
“life is…” is nothing but an illusion. It’s all made up.
It’s the stories in your head and the stories that
you keep hearing around you and in the media
that keeps these illusions alive.
Take this week to look at some key areas in your
life: health, self worth, relationships, finances and
spirituality. Look at them. Let yourself be open
to discovering the illusions that are limiting your
I have found that the more I open myself the more
I realize how many illusions I’ve let run my life in
the past. We all do this.
I’m excited. I’m excited because more and more
people are waking up to the illusions that have
kept them prisoners in their own lives.
Yes, it’s a great time to be alive. It’s time
to clear out the illusions and create a
