Studies in Italy have concluded that a fetus is profoundly affected by its’
environment. That means our perception of the world most likely began to
take form before we were even born. We can’t change the messages that we
picked up from our parents while incubating, but having an understanding
of its impact on our development can offer us a deeper insight into our
internal wiring. It’s important that when we discover the potential source
of some of our poor coping mechanisms that we look at it as an opportunity
to grow and not to blame. Today, forgive your parents for not understanding
that parenting begins long before birth, and begin practicing ‘conscious
parenting’ with yourself.
There is no such thing as regret in the spiritual realm, because there are no such things as mistakes. As spiritual beings we are continually evolving and every single experience is part of that journey. Our brain can label the things that happen to us as “good” or “bad,” but in truth they are neither, because they are simply part of our soul’s bigger plan. To feel regret for the mistakes we believe we have made is human nature, but its not spiritual nature. Today, if you find yourself feeling regretful about any part of your life, remind yourself that every single experience in your life has brought you right to this moment. Trust that your soul is much wiser than your brain.
Could you be sabotaging your own happiness? Everything is made up of matter and energy.That isn’t philosophy that is science. What we believe and the thoughts we produce are matter and energy. If we think good thoughts, those good thoughts echo back to us. If we are subconsciously thinking about negative things, those negative thoughts have the power to echo back from the universe conflicting with all of the good ones we are consciously thinking about. Today, be honest with yourself and have the courage to ask yourself what you could be doing to sabotage your happiness-then do what it takes to get the heck out of your own way.
The universe doesn’t have feelings or empathy for us. Think of it as a canyon that reverberates back with the sound of our own voice, dreams and aspirations. What we want in this life WE create by speaking clearly into the universe. While it is true that everything is made up of energy, we can’t just wish our lives away waiting on the Law of Attraction to do all the work. We have to also implement the Law of Promotion. Today, promote your dreams and wishes by speaking them clearly into the universe and then go out and actively make them happen!
We all know the saying “if life gives you lemons, then make lemonade.” Well, what is so wrong with life being tart sometimes? Why do we always feel the need to tell people to “Look at the bright side,” or “Be positive.” Folks, we need life to be sour sometimes in order to appreciate the sweetness. All of us have days (and even longer periods) when everything feels so impossible that no amount of sugar can sweeten the tartness of the lemons and that’s OKAY. Today, learn to appreciate the sour moments because they only make the sweeter ones that much sweeter.
Let’s face it peeps. We live in a negative world where literally every second the media bombards us with copious amounts of negative information. Because of this, most of us are guilty of being overly eager to share our woes when people query “How are you?” Truthfully, people may ASK how we are, but they really don’t want to hear our bitching. I have found a great way to navigate around that tricky question. Whenever people ask me how I am, I always chirp “I’m great, thanks,” because no matter what crap might be going down in my life, the fact remains that as a person, I AM great! Today, despite what is happening in your life-remind yourself and others that you are not your circumstances by always declaring confidently “I’m great, thanks!” Sometimes we make it by faking it.
Faith and denial often face off. For example; when we pray to the powers that be to bring us, say a job, and our prayers go unanswered, the last thing we look at is our part in the equation. It’s easy to forget that faith isn’t just a noun but also a verb, thus requires some type of action on our part. If we ask for the things that we want and they don’t manifest, that is not always a reflection of our level of faith, but more often than not, a reflection of our level of action. We can pray for what we want, but we shouldn’t confuse faith with denial. In other words, ask for that job, but then get out there and knock on some doors and do your part to MAKE it happen.
