Life is beautiful, life is alot of things. In my experience I have found that being thankful and keeping your mind in a state of gratitude is one of the first steps to creating a beautiful life.
I am very passionate about 2 things and have huge desires to share what I’ve learned in both areas. Photography and healing your own life.
The first half of my life so far was hard. My childhood gave me several reasons to live in a victim consciences and blame other people for my misfortune. I had a pass to just decide that I got dealt a tough hand of cards and my life could not become beautiful. Boy am I glad that I learned that the past means nothing about me and that I am FREE to CHOOSE how my life unfolds. I have learned so many things that have helped me and continue to help me elevate my life condition and I want to share with you some tools that will hopefully help you too. I’ll start with this one.
This week remember YOU BECOME WHAT YOU THINK ABOUT ALL DAY LONG. Be an observer/watcher of your thoughts. Like me you have probably heard this statement several times and for the most part agree with it and have given some effort to thinking positive but once your mind wonders and you get back into an old pattern of thinking it feels almost comfortable and you stay there.
Personally I made a big change a few years ago. When you decide to change your thinking its a life change. You make big changes and start to protect what goes into your consciences. Your the gatekeeper of your mind 🙂 With that being said I watch very little TV especially if I am feeling like my mind is generating negative thoughts. Also music, I LOVE my music but I know it is my responsibility to feed my mind with more positive reaffirming content then anything else. For instance I have some amazing books on CD in my car and at my computer desk. I make sure to listen to those positive teachings as much as I listen to lyrics that may be cool but not totally raising my awareness and convincing me to be the best version of myself.
I will leave you with this. For me at this point I am still training my mind and I like to keep it simple. With a million things about work and marriage and family playing in my head I have to be very discipline with my prayer and meditation. When I first wake up in the morning I say a prayer of gratitude. I think God for the beautiful day that I am having already. I accept and expect abundance and miracles throughout this day for myself and for everyone. (This took SO much practice to remember to do everyday but it has happened for the past 6plus months its a habit now) Another tool is when I hear that voice saying that I am not good enough or all the other things that little mean voice can say I do not argue. I set my phone alarm for 3 min. I can be in the car, at my computer, anywhere, I repeat “I am the love that God is” for three minutes and I breathe long deep breaths. This helps me to get closer to spirit and be in control of my thoughts.
I truly thank you for letting me share. I hope something resinates with you and I will be sharing more tools that work for me. I am crazy passionate about healing your life and manifesting your dreams into your reality. I believe we do a great service to God when we live an abundant life.
