World fill me up

There are times when we’ll catch ourselves thinking things like we just wish we had someone in our life that would bring the fun, love, thoughtfulness or happiness into our lives. We’ll call this ‘world fill me up’ type of thinking.

This is a trap we all fall into and I’ve definitely been in and out of this type of thinking recently. The reason I’m writing about it today is because it dawned on me how unempowering these sneaky little thoughts can be. They buy into the illusion that we aren’t perfect and whole just as we are. They buy into the idea of separateness, which on a spiritual level just isn’t true.

So, my solution is to be the trait that you want to have in someone else. Rather than looking for the world to fill you up, look to do that for yourself. Be the fun, be the love, be the forgiveness, be the light! Be that today, right now.

The role of ‘lack’ in this spiritual message was there to guide you towards what you can do to fill yourself up. Those unempowering thoughts weren’t meant to circle round your head. They were supposed to be the guiding arrow. Once you’ve embraced the trait you wanted, I suspect you will realise a delightful little truth.

The truth is, you will know that this trait is the best gift you can give yourself and the world right now,x

  1. Wow! That is soo true! I think it is also a subconscious thought which perhaps has always been there, but at what point did we all start to think this way?

    If I think back to my childhood, I don’t ever remember thinking like that. If I was bored, I occupied myself with colouring, toys, reading or playing and was content! Why do we look to fill the gap by other people I wonder? I have done this myself on many occassion. I try now to embrace the ‘gaps’ and fill them with actions like meditating, reading cards (for myself as I’m learning) and a whole lot more.

    If you can fill the gaps yourself, I believe you will all become more fullfilled, richer and probably a whole lot more interesting. By turning that thought on its head we can make a positive.

    Very thought provoking Fiona – great for a Wednesday morning at work! lol x

  2. Wow, that post really hits the spot! I have done this too and I really appreciate your ideas for how to turn this around. What a fabulous and applicable idea that we can ‘be’ what we are looking for. For example, if I’m looking for someone to liven things up for me because I feel jaded, it’s well within my reach to do something adventurous myself and this could possibly be even more satisfying. And even more seriously, if I am looking for someone to reassure me, if I can practice being the ‘calm’ that I crave, I learn a valuable skill that I can apply to other situations. Love your post!

    • I’m pleased the post resonated with you. I had written a post previously that I was going to post, then felt totally inspired after over hearing someone’s conversation and seeing them do this exact thing… Then it got me thinking… Then writing… Then posting 😉

      Inspiration from people watching 🙂 xx
