I am changing, in the most positive way.

Image

What does this really mean?

It is the realization, understanding, and belief that you are always growing in the most positive way.

Why is this so?

Whenever we find that we have dedicated our time, energy and focus on bettering ourselves from the inside-out (as opposed to trying to change things on the outside such as people, circumstances, experiences etc.) we should be confident that we are on the right path. After all, our reality is just a reflection of us on the inside.

How can I apply this information to get the results I want?

Well firstly, I must congratulate you…You are already on the road to positive change! Wherever you may be in your journey and whatever path you chose to take makes no difference here. The fact that you are taking the time and effort to read a blog that is dedicated to unlocking your true potential to create the life that you want should be your ultimate proof!

Secondly, I believe that there are so many paths you can take to better yourself and create your ideal world. It really depends on who you are as a person and what your desired result is. Once you’ve acknowledged that the power of change resides within you, the Universe will move mountains and align stars to help you find your path. And you will find it. I also believe however, and this part is very important, that choosing to live your life based on truth, honesty and integrity is the only way to achieve true and timeless success/ happiness.

You and only you will know what’s best for you. Once you’ve started the journey of unlocking the power of YOU, you should automatically know that you are changing in the most positive way. Once you affirm and begin to believe that you are “changing in the most positive way” – things will start happening! Doors will start opening, secrets of life begin unraveling, confusing times turn into AH-HA moments of clarity and the stepping stones of your journey will start mapping out in your mind.

My journey truly started after I hit rock bottom in my life. It was the lowest, most painful, most humiliating moment of my life – and yet, when I look back I realize it was my greatest blessing. After “hitting rock bottom”, I found a book (well actually to be more accurate, the book found me) at a time when I was truly ready to grow from the inside out. It was a time when I decided that enough is enough and that there was more to life than this! The book is called “The Power is Within Me” by Louise Hay, and I highly recommend it as a stepping stone to anyone who is ready to experience positive change.

Now when I look back years later, I realize that I am still on that path. In fact, we are on that path together. I am not better than you, or further than you (and vice versa), but I have advanced in ways I never even dreamt of, say six years ago.That for me is a great achievement and it encourages me to continue my journey – wherever it may take me. What I am trying to say here is that my only competition and comparison is myself, and that is how you should view your journey.

Before I close off, I would like to share these very powerful and beautiful words that resonated with me whilst reading the book, “Think and Grow Rich”, by Napoleon Hill. I believe that these words should be the foundation of everyone’s journey of growth. They are as follows:

“I fully realize that no wealth or position can long endure unless built upon truth and justice. Therefore, I will engage in no transaction that does not benefit all whom it affects. I will succeed by attracting to myself the forces I wish to use, and the cooperation of other people. I will induce others to serve me because of my willingness to serve others. I will eliminate HATRED, ENVY, JEALOUSY, SELFISHNESS and CYNICISM by developing LOVE for all humanity because I know a negative attitude towards others will never bring me success. I will cause others to believe in me, because I will believe in them, and in myself. I will sign my name to this formula…with full faith that it will gradually influence my thoughts and actions so that I will become a self-reliant and successful person.”

I am thankful and honored that you are joining me on this wonderful and exciting journey. Good luck!

PS – Feel free to share your story with me and any advice you may have on positive change. I would love to hear from you, after all – we are all changing, in the most positive way.

It is natural for me to get everything I want and need.

Image

What does this really mean?

It means that you believe and are comfortable with the idea that it is your natural born right to get everything you want and need.

Why is this so?

How do you feel about getting what you really want and need? What is your underlying belief system? Do you believe that if you want/ need something and go towards getting it, that you will get it with ease and success? Or do you believe that the things you want and need are unattainable/ hard to get? Or maybe you believe that people like you just don’t get what they want in life!

Either way, whatever you believe and are comfortable with is ultimately the reality you have chosen.

As Louise Hay (motivational writer and founder of Hay House) put it, and I’m paraphrasing here – it is our natural-born right to get everything we want and need in life – whether its attention, love, care, true friends, the perfect partner, the perfect car, your dream home, an outfit, a trip and so on. When we are born, we come into this world screaming our lungs out, asking for attention, love and comfort. We are so loud when we do this, that people on the other side of the hospital can hear us – and we don’t care that they do! We continue to act this way throughout our childhood. We demand attention and demand to get what we want. We aren’t afraid to let people and the Universe know it. It was until people around us (parents, teachers, relatives etc) started telling us and imprinting in our belief system that we shouldn’t act like this if we want something, or that life doesn’t work that way, or that life is hard etc – basically telling us that it is not natural for us to get what we want and need. Once this idea was imprinted in our subconscious we naturally start attracting the same. What happens after that? Well, we stop asking for what we want, stop looking for it, and just accept what we are and have at that moment. For example, we stop asking for true love. We stop asking for attention. We stop believing that Universe is on our side, and start believing that it is against us. We basically become powerless and just accept whatever circumstances we are in.

When we are young we don’t understand this, but once you start become aware that your thoughts and beliefs have been a reflection of your entire life (and will continue to be in the future), you realize that you have the power to create change. It is only a belief and a belief can be changed.

How can I apply this information to get the results I want?

1. Work on changing on your belief about getting what you want and need. You can do this by using the following affirmations:

–          It is natural for me to get everything I want and need.

–          I get what I want and need with ease and success.

–          The Universe gives me what I want and need at the right place and the right time with ease and success.

–          Also, whenever you get a negative/ limiting thought in the process – create an affirmation that counteracts that thought. I.e. Your negative thought could be – “Who am I kidding? People like me don’t get what they want! They just don’t!” You can counteract that thought by affirming, “I am someone who deserves to get what I want and need and I get it with ease and success.”

You can say these affirmations to yourself, write them down, sing them in the shower, record them and play them over before you sleep. But know this, the more you expose yourself to these affirmations the quicker you reprogram your mind to believe what they say. So, you are responsible for making sure that you expose yourself as much as you can and in as many ways as you can. Once they are imprinted in your mind – they begin to naturally attract the same into your life. How magical.

2. Identify what you want/ need.

3. Take the necessary steps to get what you want/need. If you don’t know what to do, just do anything! Every small action counts and the Universe reacts with actions – for every action you receive a reaction. Make sure your actions are supercharged with positive emotions and a strong sense of belief that you are going to get what you want.

4. Open yourself up to receiving. Your new belief system will begin attracting more of what it believes now – and so energy wise you are functioning on a completely different, positive level. Also, support the idea that you are ready to receive by affirming, “I am open to receiving what I want and need from the Universe now. I get it with ease and success. I deserve it.”

5. Receive and feel amazing. 🙂

On a final note – please make sure that all your wants and needs are coming from a good and honest place and that these things will have a positive effect on your greater good. There is nothing wrong with wanting the best for you (and subsequently your family, if you have one) and having the best of what life has to offer – in fact, it is your natural-born right! Just make sure that whatever you want/need doesn’t take away or hurt someone else in any shape or form. The Universe is always and forever on your side and as long as everything you do stems from goodness, you will always attract good karma. If it is not, then you will have to deal with bad karma, and there is nothing more powerful than the wrath of bad karma!

Having said that, I would like to close off with this affirmation from ‘Notes to Self” – “When everything I do stems from a good and honest place, I know that success and happiness are right around the corner”.
