The great sages and thought leaders know it to be true: we can and do create much of what we experience in life through our actions, reactions, and the intentional energy we bring to our everyday choices. External events unfold in seemingly surprising and random ways, but how we focus our energies in relation to these events is within our own power. Moreover this power of focus and choice provide the essential current that directs the course of our future.
Age, if anything, teaches us this lesson, and—for women over 50—there’s been much talk of reinvention as of late. Menopause supplies the biological urge to reinvent on numerous fronts as does the life perspective of having survived fifty plus years on the planet. So this time in a woman’s life provides a special and unique opportunity for her to refocus, redirect, and set her intentional energies in the direction she chooses to go.
This is the time to ask yourself the larger questions of life:
- Which activities fill you with enthusiasm and energy?
- What provides you with the greatest sense of satisfaction and fulfillment?
- Where do you find your inner peace and joy?
Do not get paralyzed by the need for your intention to be perfect and right. The Universe will supply you with options along with opportunities. As you meditate on your desired outcome simply add the phrase “this or something better will manifest for me with the highest good for all concerned.”
By aligning your intention, your energies, and your focus, you set the stage to create the life you want. And, after all, that’s a pretty amazing way to celebrate the feisty side of fifty!
