If only Sisyphus knew how to be the rock!

This week you might notice some good opportunity for making some solid advancement, even if it is only in your head. Don’t underestimate the power you have over your own mind. You can think anything you want to think. You can believe anything you want to believe. This can be good to remember, because we also have Jupiter in Virgo, Saturn in Sagittarius and Neptune in Pisces forming a mutable T-square until early September. This T-square will weave through the next 5 months causing us to be confronted with keeping good perspective.

As Tim Robbin’s character, Andy Dufresne, in The Shawshank Redemption tells us, “Geology is the study of pressure and time.” We may be no different then a rock, after all, we are made up of carbon. It sounds indomitable, though, pressure and time. What can we believe to endure pressure and time? What beliefs will fortify us, so that some day we resemble something as sturdy and formidable as stone? What could we believe that will support feeling worthy and dignified through challenging times? What do you believe in order to free your mind from living imprisoned in hopelessness or helplessness?

A belief is a thought that you tell yourself over and over again, until it is one of the most important thoughts that you think. What do you belief? You might be surprised on inquiry to discover that you aren’t as sure as you thought you were about what you belief. A belief is a thought that can become so important, that it seems worthy of sharing. And when a growing number of people are contemplating an important thought, it can become a shared belief. What beliefs were you raised on? Life is a struggle? Work hard and you will be rewarded? Follow your dream? Belief in yourself? Honor your mother and father?

Be sure that whatever it is you believe, that it does – without a doubt, support you through pressure and time. Be sure your beliefs include ideas of abundance, influence, and collaboration. Mind believing in anything that limits your possibilities to contribute to the rock solid foundation of your and the universe’s evolution.

Go ahead and do it. Jot down 10 of your beliefs. What do you think of them? How do they make you feel? Now, recall some of the more challenging times in your life. Go ahead and discern which of your beliefs supported you through those times. Do you have beliefs that are outdated, that no longer support you, that never supported you? Are you willing, like our friend Andy Dufresne, to allow the integrity of living to supersede your old beliefs and inform your new ones?

1. Check out what you believe.
2. Let your beliefs support your ability to keep good perspective through the thick and thin of it.
3. Know that pressure and time are simply part of the evolutionary process.
