When you focus on the macrocosm, the microcosm of the what, when and where will begin to show itself to you very quickly.

Dr. Peebles channeled by Natalie Gianelli

Message from Natalie…Beautiful Souls:

It’s easy to get caught in the notion that if you resolved just that one area of your life—the perfect place to live, the perfect person to live with, the perfect balance in your bank account—then all the pieces would fall into place, your life would be picture perfect. But that’s a mind game.

We’ve come here to appreciate the whole of the human experience, the ups and downs, the joy and sadness, the easy times and the tough times. We put the pieces of our lives together, one at a time, from the abundance that exists here.

The key is to broaden our focus, to look at the big picture. We can’t fully appreciate a movie if we are watching only the love scene, the hero moments, the happily-ever-after. Life is so much more than that, and we have an abundance of goodness at our fingertips all the time. We only need to open our eyes, see the abundance of the divine in our every breath, and give thanks for the amazing experience this human incarnation offers us.

Dr. Peebles has a perspective that helps to put the concept in focus:

Dr. Peebles: We want to offer you an activity, something the mind will find boring but it is beneficial nonetheless. This is the practice of recognizing, witnessing, being aware of abundance, bounty, plethora, especially during the activity of meditation and reclusiveness.

When you are in meditation, instead of visualizing something to bring forth, can you meditate on the absolute vastness of the universe itself? Imagine the trillions of oxygen molecules in the air around you. Focus on the abundance of something you aren’t trying to get more of—the stars in the sky, the grains of sand on the beach, how many wood grains in the bannister. When you focus on abundance, on the absurdity of the vastness, everything you want will fall into place much easier.

Think about this: You are putting together a jigsaw puzzle, you get your edges and corner pieces, then you pick up a random piece and try to find where it goes. Often people will get frustrated because they are focused on one part of the puzzle, thinking, “If I could just find where this one piece goes, I would be able to figure out where all the others go.”

Instead of trying to figure out one area of your life, convinced that once you do, everything will fall into place, we suggest you focus on the absolute abundance, the absurdity of the vastness and bounty. When you focus on the macrocosm, the microcosm of the what, when and where will begin to show itself to you very quickly.
