ATTITUDE OF GRATITUDE

Be thankful for all that you have in your life.  When what you want in life isn’t coming to you, place your focus on what you already have.  Do not come from a lack based perspective; come from an abundant perspective. 

There is always something to be thankful for in your life.  It usually doesn’t have too take long to see that.  You can start with the simple fact that you are ALIVE and then go from there!  Take note of all the wonderful things in your life.

Start a gratitude journal and write in it every evening.  Write about the day and all that you had to be thankful for during the day.  You can even make it a living journal and carry it with you to write in as your day unfolds.  This will help you to maintain an attitude of gratitude and be mindful in the NOW. 

Change the way you look at your life and watch your life change.  It really is as simple as that.  Place your focus on the positive and more positive will come and the best thing about it is you will notice the good things coming rather being oblivious to it. 

DOUBT YOURSELF OR BELIEVE IN YOURSELF?

What do you do when you doubt yourself?  Do you allow the little voice inside your head referred to as EGO to dominate and control your life?  Or, do you rely on your Higher Spirit to lead you? 

When you find yourself doubting yourself or your journey, it is then that you need to rely on your Higher Self to change those thoughts.  Turn your doubts into beliefs.  Your Higher Spirit always believes that you can do, be or have whatever you want. 

Your Higher Spirit knows the journey you are on and the path to get you there, but when you allow your Ego and its fears and insecurities to guide you, you go off on a detour and the journey to your destination is slowed down.  Replace the thoughts of doubt with thoughts of belief. 

It is just as easy to believe in yourself as it is to doubt yourself.  Choose belief over doubt because your reality is what you believe.  Amen.

LISTEN TO THE SONG OF YOUR HEART

Listen to the song of your heart.  What does it sing to you?  What are your hopes and your dreams?  What does your dream life look like?  What do you want to achieve in your life? 

Imagine.  Focus.  Envision.  Let your dreams come to life in your mind.  Spend a few minutes every day meditating.  Calm your mind and allow it to quiet.  Once you come out of meditation, spend a few minutes envisioning your dream life.  What does it look like?  Where are you living?  What are you doing for your career?  Who is in your life with you?  Be specific about your vision.  Allow the vision to come to life in your mind. 

Every day perform this activity.  Your beliefs become your reality.  Make your dream life come to true in the physical world. Amen.

CHANGE THE WAY YOU LOOK AT YOURSELF AND WATCH YOUR LIFE CHANGE

Negative self-chatter keeps you from what you want in life.  Any negative words that you say to yourself slow down the arrival of your dreams: “I am not ready.”  “I am not prepared.”  “I am not worthy.”  These words hold you back or cause you to throw away your dreams altogether.

You are stronger than you believe.  You are smarter than you believe.  You can do anything you put your mind to.  You can have anything that you want.  The only thing standing in your way is your negative self-chatter.  Do you want to give these words power over your life or do you want to take control?

You can change your negative self-chatter by developing a habit that turns your negative into a positive. The first step is to become mindful of your thoughts and what you are saying to yourself.  The habit is probably so automatic that it may take some practice to become mindful enough to notice the negative self-chatter.  You will need to catch the negative statement as quickly as possible and turn it into a positive one.  This will take practice and repetition, but soon you will get into a rhythm that will eventually become a positive habit that will replace the negative one. 

The second step is to start practicing.  The next time you say to yourself a negative statement such as: “I can’t do this”, change it to “I am learning and I am growing and I with time I will be able to do this.”  If you have some negative phrases you say to yourself on a regular basis, you can help yourself by writing them down and then writing the positive counterpart next to the negative ones.  Read the list daily, repeating the negative phrases and then positive counter phrases, at least three times, to memorize them.  This will help you to become automatic with your positive responses when the negative phrases creep up.

You CAN change a negative thought process with practice, determination and belief.  Believe in yourself! Amen.

THE POWER OF EIGHT

In numerology, the number 8 stands for balance.  If you turn the number on its side, it creates the infinity symbol which symbolizes eternity.  This is a reminder that there is no beginning and no end, just an endless cycle of birth and rebirth, spiritual existence and physical existence. 

This should bring comfort, especially if you have loved ones that have moved back into their spiritual form, and you are missing them and wondering if they are ok.  THEY ARE OK.  They are better than OK.  They are feeling the Divine stream of Light and Love much stronger than when they were on the physical plane because they have no distractions in the spiritual world.  Release any fears or worries that you have been clinging to and rest assured that your spiritual loved ones are peaceful and pure light and love. 

It is important to find balance in your home and work lives.  Do not put emphasis on one more than the other.  Imagine a teeter totter with the word Home on one side and the word Work on the other.  You are standing in the middle and you are balancing both sides to be equal.  Look at your life that way.  Set some short and long term goals.  Write down a few that you want to accomplish in the next few months and a few that you want to accomplish in the next five years.  Create a game plan to bring them to fruition.  Amen.

WAITING ON YOUR DREAMS TO COME TRUE

It isn’t always easy waiting for your dreams to come true.  Motivation, Hard Work and Not Giving UP will get you to where you want to be.  The journey is unwritten and unforeseen.  At times, you may feel like you are walking blindly through the forest of your dreams not knowing which direction to go in or when you will be out of the forest.  Follow your intuition and let it lead the way. 

Where does your passion lie?  What makes you excited?  What does your dream look like?  What is a reasonable amount of time you think it would take to come to fruition?  What do you need to do to bring it to fruition?  These are questions you need to ask and write down the answers. 

Don’t let your Ego talk you out of your passions.  It will immediately want to take over when you start to dream and imagine.  Push the forceful negativity of your Ego aside and focus on the vision of your passion, your dream.  Let your Intuition take over and join your imagination in showing you the vision that is waiting for you if you allow it to come. 

Don’t waiver with your passion and your belief.  Everything you believe becomes your reality.  Believe what you want and ignore the belief of what you don’t want.  It is that simple.  Then wait.  Everything comes in Divine timing and it’s never too late.  Everything has lead you to this point.  Amen.

CHANGE AN OBSTACLE INTO AN OPPORTUNITY

Whenever something shows up as a problem, it is trying to get your attention.  If you direct your energy and attention to the problem and view it as an opportunity instead of an obstacle, you will soon see it transform.  You can imagine it like a child who is doing behaving badly to get attention.

First, you want to approach the subject from a positive perspective.  Once you are able to look at the subject from a different perspective, it will immediately begin to change.  Repeating words  such as “Everything happens for a reason” and “This too shall pass” are good things to say when you are facing unwanted situations. 

Take a closer look at the situation and see where you can improve it.  You will need to make a game plan and move towards it head on.  Don’t fear it and don’t ignore it.  This will end up becoming one of your greatest blessings and life changing events if you allow it.  You have to navigate it from a place of positivity and love, not fear and intimidation.  Allow your Intuition to take the lead.

Nothing is impossible.  You can conquer and improve anything.  All it takes is desire and the tenacity to follow through.  Change your perspective and don’t look at your problems as problems.  Change the description from problem to possibility and from obstacle to opportunity.  Look at these moments as exciting opportunities to grow and strategize.  Follow your Intuition and let it lead the way.  Amen.

WAITING FOR YOUR SHIP TO COME IN

We know that it gets frustrating waiting for your “proverbial ship” to come in.  You want your dreams to come true NOW.  We get it, but there is much preparation to be made before your dreams can come to fruition. 

You need to change your perspective if you are feeling frustrated or impatient.  You need to focus on the moment you are living – look at it as a great crescendo to the arrival of your dreams.  Each moment is building and building anticipation.  There is excitement in the surprise of what is to come.  Take it minute by minute, hour by hour, day by day.

Focus on your dream and what you want to bring to life.  It is alive and well in your subconscious mind.  Focus on the image and how you can bring it to life in the physical world.  Get involved and map out a strategy to help make it come true in the physical realm.  Define every detail right down to the mundane areas.  Set a goal and a timeline to achieve it. 

Enjoy the journey.  Once you reach the destination, the enjoyment of the journey is over and a new beginning awaits.  Don’t lose focus.  Don’t be discouraged.  Keep your thoughts positive and hopeful.  Enjoy the anticipation of the arrival.  Amen.

WHERE DO YOU WANT TO GO IN LIFE?

Creating a guide for your life will get you to where you want to go.  You are never too old to create and start following your life guide.  There are a few things you need to do.

First, you will need to write down your goals.  Be specific about what you want to accomplish.  Next, you need to be specific about how to get there.  Thirdly, you have to be patient and persistent. 

There will be times where you will be guided in a different direction then you had been headed.  This is your Intuition/Higher Self guiding you down a different path that will lead you back to your original path.  You will have experiences that will help you with your journey.  Be willing to leave the map and go off on a different path that will lead you back to the map further down the road. 

You can create your own life by following your own life guide.  You will need to believe that you can do, be or have anything you want in life.  Nothing is out of reach.   You have to have faith and persistence and determination. 

There will be times when you will have to try something different over and over again.  Perhaps your whole life up until now has been a series of starts and restarts.  Don’t give up on your dreams.  Allow yourself to dream and write down your dreams.   Start following the path and watch your dreams come true.  Amen.

ALLOW LOVE TO LEAD YOUR LIFE

Allow love to permeate every situation.  It will lessen the intensity of the situation, open lines of communication and promote understanding. 

Love runs through each and every person.  It is the underlying current that courses through your veins.  Love is honest and open-eyed.  It does not live in denial or misunderstanding.  Love is bold and courageous.  It is not afraid to show its energy and force. 

Love can change a life.  Love can unite two lives.  Love can heal.  Love can destroy hate.  Love can give strength.  Love is the unifying force of the world.  Love is its own language.  It defies language barriers.  Love is sweet and gentle.  Love is patient and kind.  Love always wants the best.  Love can rule the world.  Amen.
