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.

I'd like to know what you think, please leave a comment.  If you liked it share it with a friend.

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:
