A Simple Way to Stay Positive

It's so very easy to get caught up in a negative frame of mind. One minor thing can throw your whole day out of whack. What I find most amazing, is how much energy it can consume being in that negative state. The negative seems to possess you, your breathing becomes heavier, your heart-rate increases and you have this overwhelming need to "share" this news. If there is no one around to tell, you might start thinking of who you could call to tell, maybe post it on Facebook. It's pretty funny when you think about it and yet, so sad at the same time.

To avoid feeding the "Negative Monster" so it won't come back begging for more, as soon as something happens, that gives you the first telltale sign of any of the above. Immediately say cancel, cancel, cancel to yourself, take some deep breathes and find something good to think about.

You might also want to come up with a keyword or phrase that you know would trigger a happy thought. Maybe your pet's name, or a place you've been on vacation that brought peace to your soul. You could also use the title of a song that makes you feel good. Then concentrate on the words to that song and begin to sing or hum it. It doesn't matter what it is as long as it gets you out of that negative state. I personally like "I Will Survive." It's just one of those empowering songs, imagine breaking up with the negative feelings or The Devil. But you might like a love song to or even a gospel song.

Whatever it is that gets you out of that negative energy and back to a higher vibration the faster you do it the better. Remember each moment and each day you are creating your future, no Negative Monsters allowed.

There is Only One Power

From Telepsychics: Tapping Your Hidden Subconscious Powers by Joseph Murphy:

Telepsychics: Tapping Your Hidden Subconscious PowersThe most important truth you can learn is that there is only one power.  This power is omnipresent and, being thus, it must be within you - the very life of you.  When you use this power constructively and harmoniously and according to its inner nature, men call it God, or good.  When you use this power within negatively or destructively, men call it by such names as devil, satan, evil, hell, misfortune, etc.  Be honest with yourself and as yourself this simple question: "How am I using the power within me?" and right there you have the answer to your own problem. It is as simple as that.

I read Telepsychics cover to cover yesterday.  Those of us who study The Law of Attraction know it is always present and always working.  The first book I ever read on the subject was The Power of Your Subconscious Mind  which is another incredible book by Joseph Murphy.  Knowing The Law and applying The Law are two different things though.  In each and every book I read on the subject I find more and more inspiring ways of looking at life and the power of God.

Leave a comment and share what book(s) you have found real inspiration in.

Who is That Whispering to You?

Have you ever noticed when you begin to work on something new to improve your life, whether it's starting to use a new affirmation or making a lifestyle change, like going on a new diet, a new energy seems to takeover and things just seem to be going your way.  There you are just skipping along all happy go lucky when in strolls "the devil".  Negative thoughts begin to bombard you, the feelings of enthusiasm soon turn to doubt and your mood goes from high to low in no time flat.

That devil, that seeks to challenge your good intentions, is merely a part of your subconscious mind.  A part that is resisting change and when "the devil" starts to whisper his fallacious statements to you, you know you are on the right track and in the process of building a new beliefs to replace the old ones. 

This is the time in the process of creating a better life that it's most important to press on and not give in to those old thought patterns. Whenever that devil whispers to you, say to yourself, cancel, cancel, cancel.  Then immediately think of anything at all that makes you happy.  Don't let him settle in and make himself at home, he's not welcome.

Counting Your Blessings & Changing Your Focus

Our perception of the world around us creates the world we live in. When we focus on the negative we only give it energy to grow and even invade other areas of our life. You might be surprised to find that you have so many wonderful things that occur in your life daily, that you have overlooked by concentrating on the negative.

For changing your focus I recommend simply journaling the treasures found in everyday life. You don't even need a fancy new journal, a plain spiral notebook will work just fine.

What kind of things should you write down daily? Anything good!

Ganesh Pocket Leather Journal w/ Side Button Closure- Receiving a compliment
- Having someone hold the door for you.
- A phone call from a friend
- Something funny one of your kids said
- A smooth commute to work
- Finding or receiving money in any amount
- Gifts and unexpected nice surprises

It doesn't matter as long as you view it as something good. When you shift your focus to the good you aren't just looking at life different, you are raising the positive energy that surrounds you and in turn will attract more blessings each and everyday.

If I Could Be Like Mike

"I've missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I've lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I've been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I've failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed." - Michael Jordan

I posted that quote yesterday on The Seed and The Harvest Facebook Fanpage. I found it very inspiring. Some think of people, like Michael Jordan, of just being successful and don't always register all the hard work and failures that went into the making of a champion. It wasn't overnight or instant. Yes, God blessed him with a natural ability but he choose to polish that talent and to overcome failures. That quote says to me, that if you want to be successful, to stay the course and don't let setbacks stop you from your ultimate goal.

Being Poor Stinks!

"Poverty is a form of hell caused by man's blindness to God's unlimited good for him." - The Dynamic Laws of Prosperity Catherine Ponder

Some people would say that while poverty might be considered hell it's easy, yet tons of self help books would tell you that being rich is easy.  I believe it's just as easy to manifest wealth and abundance as it is to manifest poverty and lack.

The difference is only a mindset away.  You'll notice that people that live in lack dwell on lack.  While those that live in wealth think at the opposite end of the spectrum.  And yes there are those in the middle that have a bit of both going on in general they think positive thoughts but at times let worries carry them down the wrong path.

Let's imagine poverty being a dirty diaper, I know that sounds silly but bare with me.  Here you are with this dirty stinky diaper, aka poverty, and you think about this diaper all the time, you carry it around and show it to your friends saying, "See, see how much it just stinks!" and think "I wish I could get rid of this thing." But, you tote it around some more.  Now how much sense does that make?  Sure they'll be stinky diapers but that doesn't mean that you hold on to them, carry it around with you all day, tuck it in next to you at night, and show it to everyone you cross paths with.

It's time to dispose of negative thoughts, they just plain stink! As you become more aware of your thinking the more subtle thoughts of lack will jump out at you, and it will be easier to see where the lack is coming from in your life.

One of my wow moments happened recently when I was organizing our game room.  I was thinking to myself we need some type of shelving in here, something nice to look at but durable to hold up to the kids and their friends.  That by itself would have been a nice enough thought but nope!  The thought that followed was but I just don't have the money right now.  As soon as that thought crossed my mind lights and bells went off.  I quickly canceled the last thought and went back to visualizing what I wanted.

It's those simple thoughts that can get in our way.  We plant a seed and not two seconds later dig it up.  If that happens to you replant you seed and walk away.

The News and How It Shapes Your Views

In the last post, Being The Boss of Your Subconscious Mind, we talked about using the power of visualization to attract things we want and how your subconscious has a built in reference guide.

Today we are going to talk about attracting things through default.  We do this when our emotions react to outside influences.  We need to be consciously aware of the outside world but we also need to choose what we accept to be Truth.

Watching the news on any given day could give rise to emotions that your financial situation is doomed. I was talking to a business owner a couple of weeks ago.  He had been working on a pretty big sale that would earn him a large commission, then he said, "But I'm not so sure about it, what with the price of gas going up along with everything else. People just don't have the money to spend."  It's times like that I just want to ask people if they hear what they are actually saying.  Not only is he saying it but from his body language I could tell he was emotionally attached to the statement.  If he let's that belief take hold he will surely sabotage the deal, but in his mind it wouldn't have been his fault but the fault of the economy.

There's nothing wrong with watching the news and being informed.  The problem is when you get emotionally involved and start living according to the influence rather than using your own power of creative thinking to shape your own personal experiences.

There are so many people that thrive personally in a bad economy.  I remember when I first started out on my own and moved into my own place.  I was out buying furniture, going out on the weekends, shopping at the mall.  Why?  Because my personal economy was doing just fine.  I honestly didn't have a clue what the "recession" meant and why I should even care about it.  Ahh, there are times that ignorance is bliss because it surely shows that our own beliefs are a strong force to shape our personal world in wonderful ways.  

One of my favorite quotes is by Zig Ziglar - "There's not a lot you can do about the national economy but there is a lot you can do about your personal economy."

Being The Boss of Your Subconscious Mind

What are you telling your subconscious that you want?  Your subconscious mind is like your own personal errand boy.  You tell him what you want and he sets out to get it.  Pretty simple right?

It's important that you tell the errand boy what you really want.  If you say, "I'm so sick and tired." The errand boy quickly goes to his reference book, one that you've written and looks up sick and tired.  Then speeds along to find things that will make you even more "sick and tired".  He brings your boss by your desk to annoy you, he makes sure you get in the right line at the grocery store so you will have a nice long wait and a cashier that irritates you. He then proceeds to put some letters that you're not going to like very much in your mailbox, for when you get home.  He might even give the dog your favorite sandal to chew on.  Wow, he's good!

On the flip side, you tell your errand boy I want to be rich!  He goes to look that up in the reference book and finds under the word rich a story about you when you were ten and you found five dollars and you felt so rich!  So he goes about his way and gets you an extra five dollars.  He is still awesomely proud of himself because once again he has done exactly what he was told to do.

How about you tell him that you'd like to go out to eat and you are sure about it! He'll get a friend to call and say, "I was just thinking of you, would you like to go out to dinner?" or maybe you'd get a coupon in the mail from your favorite restaurant. He is helping you get what you want but you have to follow through.  If you tell your friend no or trash the coupon because you really shouldn't go, then it's you that has the problem, he's done his job, he's laid out a path for you and he'll keep doing it whether you are a good boss or bad.

Your errand boy also has the greatest cell phone reception ever!  You'll tell him that you want new furniture for the living room.  He'll set out to find it, not only the furniture but also the means of which to obtain it. While he is on his journey you call him and say, "You know, maybe instead of brown, I'd like something more creamy, and he's out to get creamy.  Then you'll think you'd like leather instead of fabric, so he changes course to find what you want.  Your last words to him might be well we don't have the money for that so just forget it.  And so he does!

We must give our subconscious a good reference as to what we want from it.  Hold in your mind those things that you want whether it's good health, wealth, happiness or a loving relationship.  Use your past as a reference or write new entries by making a vision board and using visualization. And last but not least give him time to go out and get the things you want before changing your mind.  Hold on to the thought, if he hasn't brought it to you yet, send him reminders, i.e. affirmations.  He won't ever get annoyed no matter how many times you tell him you want something and he loves for you to be specific, it makes it easier for him to do his job.

Are You a Bully?

I'm guessing your answer to that is probably a solid, "No!"  When we think about a bully, we usually think of some big mean kid that throws insults and threatens us with physical pain.  A bully is totally appalling and  someone that when we see coming we want to go the opposite direction in order to not cross paths with this hateful awful person.

Truth is though you might just be a bully, only you aren't bullying other people.  You are bullying yourself.  What are the things that you are saying to yourself?  Are those insults just as bad as anything a bully would say to you?  Or maybe they are even worse because your own personal bully knows your inner most secrets.  This bully knows everything about you, if you think you're too fat, not pretty enough, not smart enough, not feeling confident, not feeling loved and worst of all what you fear the most.  The bully even remembers things from the past that you feel bad about and will use them against you.

Start being your own best friend!

As you go about your day take note of the negative things you say to yourself.  Then one at a time begin working on positive affirmations in that area, first you'll begin to negate those thought patterns and when you keep working on it you will eventually replace them.  If you aren't sure where to start or what you want to say to yourself try,  I love and accept myself.

For those things that you have done in the past that you feel bad  or guilty about, maybe you insulted someone or maybe you are beating yourself up because you think you said something stupid.  Use the affirmation, I forgive the world, the world forgives me and I forgive myself.  Say it over and over until the negative feeling subsides.

Finding Inspiration - Randy Gage

I have at least a dozen books, including my Bible, that I like to just open to any page when I'm looking for inspiration. Kind of a what message should I get today.  I've needed this lately as I've been dealing with a number of things in life and I like to get ahead of it and not give in to the feeling of doom that outside circumstances can cause at times.

The other night I decided to try something new, I went surfing through YouTube for a message and happened upon Randy Gage.  I found the majority of his videos inspirational. 

Here's one I especially liked:

Raising Your Deserve Level - Focus on Yourself

"Why not me?"  This is a common question many people ask themselves.  Often times we look around and see on the surface what other people have and it becomes a frustration that festers.  As we concentrate on what others have and what we lack, we manifest more lack in our own lives. As a result, we begin to feel less than and that can lead to depression and health problems.

In order to have a prosper and healthy life we need to concentrate on our own lives, which made me think of The 10th Commandment, which states:  Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor’s house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbor’s wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbor’s.

Begin today being thankful for all the things you do have, when thoughts of envy or wonder about what others have say to yourself, "cancel, cancel, cancel".  Don't compare what you have to what others have, begin to know that God is the provider of all things and that He does not discriminate!  "Before they call, I will answer" - Isaiah 65:24  God already has more blessings for you than you can possibly imagine.  Know that you deserve them, accept them as yours and expect them.

I deserve, accept and except all the wonderful blessings that God already has for me.

Daily Affirmation - Solving Problems

From the book Grow Rich While You Sleep

"It is not our problems which disturb us; it is our lack of faith in our ability to solve them."

Whether it's lack of faith or knowledge, God knows the answer and we can ask that it be shown to us.  At the same time we need to quiet the worry of our mind and listen for the answer from our hearts.

Here's the affirmation from the book to do so:

"I am at peace with myself and the world. Problems facing me are no longer disturbing because I have made contact with my true source of intelligence and power.  I am guided to do the right thing at the right time."
