Finding a way to become friends with the problem = the solution. Did you know that the solution is actually always created at the same moment the problem comes into existence? Two sides of the same coin. A package deal. It's part and parcel of the duality of the world we live in - the beauty (if you have the "eyes" to see it) in the contrast, so to speak.
You can be solution oriented or problem oriented. The choice is ever yours. So here is a problem, which means I must be standing right within the solution as well, right? That's it exactly. It's a matter of attuning your perception of the situation - better stated - the way in which you tune-in to the situation. Always ask, “What can make this better? What's the best way to look at this?”.
Focusing on the problem will make it bigger and attract more similar to it. Focusing on the solution will do the same. So first, be ok with where you are, with what is. Then make friends with the solution. Imagine how you would feel if you already came across the solution. Then tune-in on that feeling. Focus on that feeling. Make that feeling and thought processes that go along with that feeling your point of perception. Let yourself feel that IT’S ALRIGHT because the solution is here, regardless of whether I have yet managed to tune-in to it or not yet.
Whenever there is a problem, always reach for the immediate relief of this feeling which will inevitably help you make friends with the problem, which in turn will ultimately lead you to the solution. Whenever you let go of that troubled, unsettled or problematic feeling, you step into alignment with the solution. It is not something you can force, it's something that you allow. Blessings and much happy solution-orienting!
