Each moment holds an incredible banquet of possibility. And if you are not mindful of the “order” you are giving the universe, you may wonder why you are getting the “same old dish”! Quantum physicists (like Theoretical Quantum Physicist, Dr. Amit Goswami) have now shown there are a minimum of 20 different realities you can choose from in any moment. Forty years ago, mind-body teacher Louise Hay pioneered what scientific studies have now proven…your thoughts create your reality.
If you want to live authentically and express your gifts, it is crucial to balance emotional clearing with a positive vision. Engaging in emotional clearing without directing your mind into new affirmative set points is like preparing the soil without planting seeds. And if you only do affirmations and positive thinking, it is like putting a happy face sticker on an engine light!
Your emotional pain (Mud) is your fertilizer. With the right techniques, you can use this pain to open to the beauty, prosperity, and love that is already within you. There is a reason God gave emotions to humans. When you align your mind with the feeling tone of affirmations, you can heal your body, change your life, and draw towards you anything you focus on.
Mindfulness means maintaining a moment-by-moment awareness of your thoughts, feelings, bodily sensations, and surrounding environment. Resisting what is happening in your current reality keeps you trapped. What is physically happening in your life and body right now… is history. Accept what is happening, and at the same time, look through to the other side. In their non-violent stances, both Martin Luther King and Gandhi weren’t ignoring what was happening — they were seeing through it. They looked directly into the eyes of the suffering and violence, yet saw in their vision what was possible.
“The world we have created is a product of our thinking. It cannot be changed without changing our thinking.”
– Albert Einstein
Self-Acceptance and affirmations are the doorway into your greater life. To have God-Love-Joy as your everyday life, you must prepare a space in your heart and mind. Emotional clearing work (heart) and affirmations (mind) align you with the Good or God that is there for you. Every month you should become a new version of yourself through feeling (and thus clearing) the Mud (fears, doubts, grief, limiting beliefs), and doing daily affirmation. In nature, what does not grow, dies. Life and Nature are continually becoming more of … Life and Nature. If you are the same person you were a year ago or a month ago, you have gone backwards.
Just like Martin Luther King and Gandhi, your self-love and inner vision can affect other people, animals, and the Earth. Whether or not you heal matters to your family. You are significant to the change happening on the planet. Recently while on a run, I found an injured and starving raccoon. The people around him were frightened and scared of him, which caused him to bare his teeth. I quickly ran home and got him some food. After ten minutes of meditating with him, he let me feed him.
I cried and felt his pain. The next day I went to see him, but there was no sign. The Earth Angels spoke and said that the raccoon had died…but that he died knowing he was loved. There are so many furry and human beings that suffer, and we cannot fix or save them all. But your awareness of them, and your vision of them, does make a difference!
You can affirm or pray, “May all beings know they are loved.” One of the most powerful and life-changing affirmations I have seen is, “I AM WILLING TO FEEL HOW DEEPLY LOVED I AM.” Breathe and let the energy meet you. Be willing. Be available.
You have already been given the tools to create an amazing life. You may not know how to use them, or you may have emotional “static” on the line. Most of us have not been taught how to live the life of our dreams and be our magnificent true selves. However, don’t re-invent the wheel. Come into a session and receive what people I mentor call an “emotional shower” or “tune up”. It is wise, not weak, to let someone help you clear out childhood beliefs and feel the tough stuff. I am not suggesting that you rehash stories or play the victim, but rather, receive help in shifting your identity to who and what you truly are!
“You can only freely give what you freely receive.” – Father Richard Rohr
Be courageous and notice, “What thoughts am I truly thinking? What do I really believe about myself, love, God, sex, etc.?” What is showing up in your life, is what you believe. Only your perceptions and beliefs can be against you. Life is for you.
“Your beliefs and thoughts are wired into your biology. They become your cells, tissues, and organs. There’s no supplement, no diet, no medicine, and no exercise regimen that can compare with the power of your thoughts and beliefs. That’s the very first place you need to look when anything goes wrong with your body.” – Christiane Northrup, M.D.
Is love or God in all your thoughts? When an insight is something we realize within, verses something we are told, it is life changing. Embodying Love-God in our everyday starts with our self-love, inner work, and daily affirmation. Isn’t the everyday ordinary life sometimes the hardest time to stay focused on the love and brilliance that wants to express through you?
Giving the prosperity of the cosmos permission to show up as you, and in your Life, depends on your willingness to love you, clear the tough stuff, and affirm. No God or magic pill can do it for you, if you don’t create space for it to happen. You have been given all the tools and wisdom already, and they are ready to be uncovered.
You matter. You are significant. There is nothing you can do or think that changes what Creation-God made you to be. You are lovable. Now, start aligning with the good that Life has for you. Start using the tools you’ve been given (or come in and learn how). Your life can change.
