You create your life by rearranging your thought patterns, beliefs, and attitude. You don’t actually bring anything different together, because it’s all within you. It’s sort of like a kaleidoscope. When you look in one end of one of these magical toys, you see a pattern of colored glass, forming geometric designs. If you turn the end, it changes the patterns and you see a completely different pattern. The same happens when you change the way you think of something. You’re simply turning the end of your kaleidoscope and change the way you view your life.

“We are not human beings having a spiritual experience. We are spiritual beings having a human experience.” – Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, S.J.

It’s so easy to get caught up in your trials and tribulations, that you might forget that there’s something greater at work in your life. You’re in the middle of a play, and may have mistaken it for real life. Instead, you’re the one who has decided on the theme and events of the play, and choose each day what to experience. Your soul inhabits your body for a time, to participate in your life, and then moves on. What are you choosing to experience?

If you criticize others for some reason, it says more about you than it does about them. Your criticism shows your mental filters, and what causes you discomfort or irritation. It also indicates what you criticize yourself about, because what people object to in others, they tend to object to in themselves. So when you feel tempted to criticize someone, stop and consider what the condemnation says about you.

“I trust that change is a natural part of life and progress. Change impels me to expand and  evolve into a greater experience of Life. I welcome change with a positive expectancy of a better day.”

It’s a natural human response to resist change. Even if you’re uncomfortable with the way things are, most people don’t want to make that scary step to the unknown. They don’t know what change will look like. But change is natural, and must happen for us to grow and evolve. By embracing change, and affirming that it will be positive, you instruct your subconscious mind to find the way to make it happen.

What does success mean to your subconscious mind? It may not be what it means to your conscious mind. Sometimes, if you have an old concept of feeling ineffective, the subconscious will consider it a success if you reinforce that old idea. Your subconscious seeks to reinforce your old self-image, making it “right.” So what is your self-image concerning success? Do you need to update it?

“A man’s life is what his thoughts make of it.” William James

You view your life through a filter, made up of your thoughts about the matter. That filter then colors what you perceive in the situation. Whether it’s true or not, you then act on that perception. Your life is made up of the actions you’ve taken or not taken, based on your perceptions at the time. Every moment, you have multiple choices of how to view your world and how to respond to it. Consider what kind of life do you want, and then decide on the thoughts you need to have to bring it about.

Whenever you’re feeling stressed or overwhelmed, practice being in the now. Don’t worry about the future, just deal with the one thing you have to do in this minute. Studies show that people who practice mindfulness have more mental, physical and emotional resources. When your mind is constantly darting around, trying to solve problems while you’re working on a project, it’s exhausting and counter-productive. Being in the moment can give your busy mind a rest and allow you to focus all your energies on what you have to do right now. When you’re done with that, you can go on to the next thing. Studies show that this can also improve your mood, memory and well-being.

“Ideas that promote a life of joy, harmony, success and prosperity flow into my mind. I recognize and welcome them, putting these ideas into action. As I do, all of Life wells up to assist me.”

You’re always receiving a flood of ideas for progress, but due to stress, overwhelm or just frustrated, you may not be aware of them. You may have ignored them for so long that it’ll take time to tune your consciousness to them. As you listen, and act on the ideas, even if it’s just a little bit, it encourages your subconscious to feed you more. And action puts Life into motion to meet you and help you along the way.

You’ve heard that everyone you attract is a mirror for you? This is true, but not necessarily literally. People can show you both your positive and negative traits. On the one hand, they can be your shadow side, the part of you that you’re resisting. Or they could be reflecting positive traits that you have. But there’s a third possibility. There could be some negative people you attract into your world who are there simply because they’re attracted to your positive energy. And they can be there, not to reflect your traits to you, but to teach you what kind of person you want to associate with. They may be present for their needs, to absorb your energy. The lesson for you may simply be to release them and go on your way.

“An affirmation is a strong, positive statement that something is already so.” – Shakti Gawain

Affirmations are dynamic statements that are designed to align your mindset with what is true at a spiritual level. If they were not real, then you could not have even considered the possibility. Affirmations don’t change the mind of the Universe to give you something you don’t already have. They work to change your mind to accept what the Universe has already given you.
