Jumping to assumptions and leaping to conclusions can be hazardous to your health. You could easily fall into the rut of thinking you know what’s really going on, but you could be completely inaccurate! Not only that, but you could also actually just be projecting your own thoughts and feelings onto someone else or the situation, rather than seeing it clearly or with Spirit-centered eyes. This is true whether you are thinking about a person, a situation, the state of your abundance, or the world in general.

Out of damp and gloomy days, out of solitude, out of loveless words directed at us, conclusions grow up in us like fungus: one morning they are there, we know not how, and they gaze upon us, morose and gray. Woe to the thinker who is not the gardener but only the soil of the plants that grow in him. Friedrich Nietzsche

It’s always better to ask, discuss, and explore whatever you think is going on, before acting on it. If you must jump to an assumption and leap to a conclusion, why not assume the best and conclude that everything will work out okay? This will keep you from projecting your unhealed past or triggered emotions onto the person or situation.

Spiritual Contemplation: When have you leaped to a conclusion that was unhelpful and untrue? When have you jumped to an assumption you later discovered was just a projection of your own stuff?

Affirmation: I release any need to make assumptions or jump to conclusions that are negative. I see with the positive eyes of Spirit’s Love and assume that abundance and good will abound.
