It’s really no secret that we create our own reality with out thoughts. Everything that we are or have is with us because we’ve wanted it. Whether it’s conscious or not, we bring things, people, and experiences to our lives with our way of thinking. Like the verses in the bible that say “ask and ye shall receive”, our life follows the same message: ask, believe and receive.
To begin we must clear our mind of all distracting thoughts, such as I need to clean the house, do the laundry, finish this project, etc.. We need to find a place where we can relax and really clear our mind. This place is going to be the place where you can let your mind think and wander instead of JUST relaxing and letting go of your stress. A place where you can think of your intentions in life or what you want and how you will get it. It is important to make this place comfortable and inviting, so add a plant, a small water fountain, candles or whatever brings you peace.
Once you have found this place, you can begin to think about what you want or what gift you want to receive. It is important to have no other thoughts when you begin to think about what you actually want. It could be a million dollars, a doctorate, to be a famous musician or outstanding athlete, or any number of other things.
We need to be clear with ourselves about what it is we want. To excel, we must be specific. If I say I want to lose weight, then just saying it is not specific enough. I should say that I want to be healthy, live longer, eat less, and look better, and have a specific weight goal in mind, i.e. lose 10 pounds by a specific date.
The next step is to believe that you will achieve your goal. In order to achieve what you want, you’ll have a much better chance if you can visualize it. Many times basketball coaches will tell young people to “visualize” the ball going into the basket in order to score. It has been proven that imagining something is close to actually doing it. If your thoughts and feelings are on the same level as what you want, you will raise your emotional bar and expand your imagination. You have a great chance of being successful. This is something that winning athletes do all the time.
Something else that is important to do is to express your gratitude. Make a list of all the things you are grateful for; and that will open the door for more good things to come to you. It will open your heart to give gratitude for the beautiful life that you have received. Gratitude should be an enormous part of your life and should come as natural as breathing.
Once you’ve cleared your mind, decided what you wanted, visualized having it and expressed gratitude for what you have, your request is heard. The details of how it will happen will then fall into place. Make sure and stay positive by monitoring your feelings, but let go of trying to control things.
Whenever you start to feel down, sad or angry, quickly turn your feelings around so you will be surrounded by good, positive vibes. Remember to stay positive and do something that helps you feel good. Read a book, listen to music, walk in nature or anything else that will keep you inspired and feeling positive.
Continue to be patient if your dreams do not come true in hours, days or even months. Just keep believing and sending out positive thoughts and feelings and continue to keep negative thoughts away. Remember to be grateful and really enjoy your gift when you do receive it. Surround yourself with the luxury of having the gift and enjoying it. Make it part of your life, nurture it, and let it grow. Look for the positive parts and always follow that path. Enjoy your life and expect it to be good.
To your success
