Sparks of Insight“I now allow the mind of God to think differently about this problem. I am open to new perspectives and new ideas on how to solve it. I release any resistance to whatever needs to happen for the solution to be made plain.”

Many times we get into a rut when dealing with a problem. There doesn’t seem to be any solution, and our very belief about that blocks any possibility of resolution. But from the perspective of the Universe, there is no problem, there are only solutions.

Sparks of InsightI’ve heard people say that, although they once had close relationship with God, they feel a distance or complete absence of the Divine. They wonder why God has abandoned them. The Universe still indwells and surrounds them. What has happened is that they’ve changed their relationship with themselves or with God. They either have moved away from their connection, by feeling depressed or traumatized, or they have evolved and they need to update their relationship. No matter what, God hasn’t moved. It’s just that they have changed their perspective. If you’re feeling distant from your center, then you’re the one who has moved.

Sparks of Insight“Things turn out best for the people who make the best out of the way things turn out.” ~ Art Linkletter

This is a gentle way of saying “When life hands you lemons, make lemonade.” Successful people find opportunities in difficulties, and many times, these become their greatest achievements. Challenges abound, and are a way to make us grow and expand. When a challenge comes your way, make the best of it. In so doing, you’re giving your subconscious the direction to become more resourceful at attracting Universal good.

Sparks of InsightDo you reject or abandon yourself at times? When someone verbally attacks you, do you defend yourself? Do you allow someone to take the credit for what you’ve done? Do you mentally castigate yourself for minor infractions? If you’re doing this to yourself, why would you expect others to treat you better than you do? Other people take their cues of how to treat you from you. If you aren’t standing up for yourself, against your inner judge, then other people will take advantage of you, too. What can you do to stand by and accept yourself more?

Sparks of Insight“I accept the responsibility for my thinking. Whatever implanted the negative ideas I’ve held is past. I let it go. I now begin a new day, a new life by consciously choosing positive ideas.”

The subconscious acts on the strongest information and conclusions it’s been given. You can update those beliefs, realizing that whatever situation created them no longer needs to affect you. By your making that new decision, the subconscious can then support your new, positive direction.

“A maSparks of Insightn can not be comfortable without his own approval.” – Mark Twain

So many clients tell me that they don’t feel good enough. When you don’t feel like you measure up to some ephemeral standard, you can’t feel good about yourself. Self-doubt, self-criticism, and self-sabotage undermine any feeling of well-being. Whenever you notice you’re putting yourself down, find something in yourself to praise, even if it’s the way your fingernails grow. Choose something within yourself to approve of, for the Universe approves of you.

Sparks of InsightNegative thinking is defensive or reactive. When you’re reacting from past experiences, you’re expecting the same as you got before. If you’re defensive, you’re using that as a way to protect yourself from disappointment or hurt. If you can’t be positive, at least find a way to turn the thoughts around to at least be neutral. Open up to different possibilities.

Sparks of Insight“The Universe loves and approves of me. As an individualized expression of the Universe, I love and approve of myself. I am worthy of all the good that Life can hold.”

Self-worth is important for a life of success and well-being. When you reject yourself, then you’re rejecting an expression of the Universe. No matter what you’ve done, the Universe accepts you. Your actions are separate from who you are. You are a unique individual, who deserves to be loved.

Sparks of InsightThere is only one person that you can change and that’s yourself. It would be nice if you could change the way others behaved and thought. But you can’t. It’s a hard lesson to learn. You can’t keep others from sabotaging their lives, hurting themselves, or how they feel about you. The one thing you can do is change the kind of treatment you’ll accept. If you’re being criticized, hurt, abused, or in some other destructive way, you have the ability to say “no” to it. Set boundaries, and establish consequences if they violate your limits. Even if the decision is to no longer associate with them. You deserve to be treated with dignity and respect. You may not be able to change another person, but you can change the way they treat you.

Sparks of Insight“Self-trust is the first secret of success.” – Emerson

If you don’t trust yourself, then why would anyone else? Self-trust is actually a confidence and faith in oneself. When you have trust in your decisions, direction, and character, then others will also have confidence in you.
