Did you know you are what you think about?
Did you know what the mind perceives, it can achieve?
And did you know everything happens at exactly the right time?
For me, my biggest difficulty is the concept of living in the present. My nature is always to wonder, “What is going to happen tomorrow?”
I’m not so much a worrier. I just want to know what amazing person or awesome place will I experience next.
As wonderful as my life has become, I still desire things which seem out of my reach. My passion for them drives me and lures me around the next curve, and over the next mountain.
Although I believe that what the mind perceives, it will achieve, and also that I am right where I am supposed to be. And yet I can be plagued with doubts, fears, and what ifs. Perhaps the habit is unavoidable. Perhaps it is human nature.
As result, I do affirmations.
First, I do them because the mind can only think one thought at a time. Every morning and every night affirmations set my attitude in a positive direction.
Two, because stating my intentions and my desires assures my conscious mind what my sub conscious mind already knows.
Here is a little exercise for you. Practice this faithfully for one week, and let me know the difference in your life and your attitude. I would love to hear from you.
Write down your ideal situation in regards to :
Do you want to be healthier, eat better, lose weight?
To be able be able to go hiking?
Change your hairstyle?
Do you want to have a sharper mind, to learn new things?
To have a more positive attitude?
Do you want to be less fearful, to have more faith?
To help others?
To fall in love?
Write down 3 obstacles or fears you see in trying to accomplish these ideal situations.
I’m afraid I can’t work out in bad weather.
I’m afraid I can’t find time to work out.
I don’t think I can achieve my goal.
I’m afraid I can’t achieve a sharper mind.
I’m afraid I can’t learn new things.
I’m afraid I won’t get a better attitude.
I’m afraid I can’t overcome my fears.
I’m afraid I won’t have the faith in myself.
I’m afraid I won’t find a way to help others.
I’m don’t think I can fall in love.
With a red marker cross out “I’m afraid I can’t….” and “I don’t think I can…” and write, “I Will.”
Now record these affirmations on your phone. . Read aloud, pausing after each one. You may even want to set it to music.
Listen to it daily in the morning, before your day begins.
Every day, in every way, your life will be better.
