Change Your Thinking, Change Your Life!

This seems simple enough, right?  Or maybe over simplified—like it couldn’t possibly be true?  The thing is, this Universe is a creative energy that responds to our thoughts.  Many people know this, experience this, and practice this.  If this isn’t your experience, AND you would like it to be, what can you do about it?

Step 1:  Be willing to consider that life can get better.  Be willing to consider that life circumstances CAN change no matter how much it seems that they can’t, or that they won’t.

Step 2Decrease the negative experiences in your life and increase the positive experiences. This doesn’t mean ignore fear and pain, or pretend they don’t exist.  It means, learn ways of processing fear and pain so that you can clear the way to accessing your greater good. 

You have choices about who you spend your time with and what you spend your time doing.  Ask yourself, "Is this choice bringing more joy into my life or more negativity?"  Sometimes, when you're not sure what TO DO, simply STOPPING what you have always done is a great place to start.  

Step 3:  Be willing to release things, ideas, and people that no longer serve you.  This does not make anyone or anything "wrong" (even though at times this may be true for you), it simply means that as you grow, some things will grow with you and some things you will need to release in order to make room for the new.

Think about updating the furniture in your living room.  If you don't get rid of the old stuff, you won't have room for the new stuff.

Step 4:  Once your thoughts and energy shift, you will be well on your way to experiencing more Love, Abundance, Prosperity, Healthy, and Creativity.

Some change happens quickly and is obvious.  Other times it may be a slower process and less obvious.  Think about a baby growing.  There are aspects of a baby’s growth that are so obvious and amazing.  Other times, the change will go unnoticed until one day something happens and you ask yourself, “When did you learn how to do that?!?”

Don't be discouraged if you find yourself needing to recommit to the new way of thinking on a regular basis as old habits try to sneak back into your thoughts.  It takes time to build new habits.

Whatever YOUR process is, it is perfect for you!  It is the perfect pace for you.  

Try It:

1.      List 1-3 things you have changed in your life.  For each one, what did it take to make the change happen?  How long did it take?

2.     Consider the areas of Health, Love, Wealth, and Creativity.  First, write down one idea for each area that no longer serves you.  Then write one thing you would like to see change in that area.   You might not completely know what it will look like—especially since it’s a new idea--so you can also focus on what it would feel like to have a new experience in that area of your life.  Third, simply observe what happens over the next week as you intentionally change your thoughts.
