Sparks of InsightYou can’t be positive 100% of the time. To do so would actually be detrimental to your goal. Just as when you’re walking down a rocky path, you gaze at the beauty around you, but you also scan your surroundings to make sure you don’t trip over a rock. By keeping your attention firmly fixed on your desire, you might miss important information that you need. Be aware of elements that might get in your way, but don’t let them take over your consciousness.

Sparks of InsightAre you using your busy mind to create a better future for yourself, or stay in the rut that you’ve created? You’re always visualizing or using your imagination to form your future.

Sparks of InsightAre you watching what you say? Your creative mind readily accepts each word you say with repetition, force, and conviction. If you have a habit of stating, “I can’t afford that,” then your subconscious will take that as a directive to make it true. If you’re chronically criticizing others, your creative mind will take the image of what you’re condemning and bring more of it to judge. It can’t distinguish between your positive and negative focus. So keep watch on your statements, and make them positive and what you want in your life.

Sparks of InsightWhen you set goals for yourself, and want to take a new path, tell no one about your plans. For one thing, negative people will drown out your enthusiasm. For another, telling people about what you want to do drains the energy needed to manifest your desires. When you keep it to yourself, energy begins to build and eventually must show up in your outer world. The one exception is if you want to tell one or two people who will completely support you. In that case, the energy increases because you have other people pulling for you.
