When I started to think that I needed to change my life for the better, I was overwhelmed at where to start. I have always been a dreamer, and I love that piece of me. So many people told me to just settle down and stop dreaming so much. I had no idea what that even meant, dreaming is a part of the fabric of me. I love dreaming of places to go, things to do, people to meet, and a life that is so happy and free. I started by changing my thoughts. Louise Hay taught me this in her book, You Can Heal Your Life. Every thought was a deliberate creation of my future, and my words were as well.
I noticed how often I thought negative and stressful thoughts, and I was shocked at how often I spoke the words of these negative thoughts. My mind was filled with I am not enough, I can’t do that, I am not smart enough, I don’t have the money, I don’t have the time and it just kept going on and on. And as she so perfectly explains, our thoughts and our words are creating the future, that is universal law. The energy we put out, we get back. Well no wonder things weren’t working out, everything I thought and said was coming from lack, never from abundance. So how was I going to get to abundance? That seemed like an impossible task to turn my thoughts so easily.
It started with affirmations. What did I really want? Well I started out with a few that would begin the journey within: I am enough, I am abundant, I am creative, the universe is conspiring in my favor, I am filled with positive energy. These sat on my dashboard for months. And what I noticed was, I started believing it. And once I started believing it, I started to see the manifestation of it. I encourage you, if you are just starting out, to write down some of the things that you are thinking. No judgments just let the thoughts roll out. See which ones are negative, and turn them into a positive. If you are saying “I am always broke” then write down the opposite of that: “I have plenty of money for what I need and want” or “The money in my account is increasing constantly”. Put it somewhere you can see it every morning, maybe in your car or on your bathroom mirror. Soon you will start believing it, then you will start living it. It all starts with your thoughts and your words. If you have been doing this for a while, then manifest something you have been wanting for some time, by following this as well. When you start reading it, imagine as if you already had it. Whatever “it” is - love, money, health? Start today, you will feel so much better very soon! Namaste :)
