“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.

The subconscious always is working. You may not be getting the outcome that you want, but that’s not the fault of the subconscious. It’s only doing and giving you what you’ve programmed into it in the past or present. The subconscious has rules, principles, and ways that it functions. And just as with federal law, “Ignorance of the law is no excuse.” Just because you don’t know what those rules are or choose not to follow them doesn’t mean you’re excluded from their effect. To get positive results, focus exclusively on what you want for a couple of minutes, twice a day. Imagine that it’s happening, feel its reality, and take action towards it.

“My path is illumined with direction, wisdom, and understanding. Each step leads me to the next, and my way is made clear. All that I encounter along the way contributes to my good.”

There are times when you may feel like you’re hitting a brick wall, not getting anywhere, and get discouraged. That’s when you most need to declare what you want, even if it’s just to be led in the right direction, wherever that may be. By giving the subconscious specific instructions, it will prompt it to open a way for you around, through or over that brick wall.

Have you gotten stuck in a comfort zone? If so, this doesn’t help you to evolve, progress or improve your life. If you’re completely comfortable where you are, you need to do something that pushes you. There’s an old saying, “If always do what always done, you’ll always get what you’ve always got.” Life is expansion, change and if you don’t choose it willingly, Life has a habit of thrusting it on you. Step out and do something that makes you uncomfortable, like asking for some help, take a class in something you’re interested in, make that extra phone call you’ve been dreading. By expanding your comfort zone by just a bit, you’re attracting more good to you.

Be careful what you say when you use, “I am…” Such as “I’m sick” or “I’m angry,” or “I’m feeling upset.” Whatever you say after “I am,” you’re identifying yourself with. In other words, you are claiming it as something you choose to have in your life. When you want to state how you’re feeling, you can say something like, “I feel…” This lets your subconscious know that it’s transitory, not a permanent state for you. Be aware of what you’re pairing with “I am..” and find another way to state it that recognizes that it’s not permanent condition, but rather a situation that you’re dealing with.

“The Light of God guides me through the byways of my life. I am Divinely directed in all that I say, do and think. Only good flows from me and only good returns to me.”

When I ask for Divine Guidance to speak through me, the things I say might not be what I’d intended to say, but they’re usually what was appropriate and needed in that situation. When you open to guidance, you’ll probably notice that your life flows more easily. You won’t be as concerned about what you should be saying or doing, which smooths the way, allowing more good to slide into your life.
