Creating Your Reality

“The Universe is just a big Xerox machine. It simply produces copies of your thoughts.” – Neale Donald Walsch

Thoughts are things. You create your reality by what you think about. That can be a lot of responsibility to handle, but it’s also very powerful and beautiful. You have the power to create your reality by what you notice, what you pay attention to, and what you think about. I don’t always understand the ins and outs of how it works, but I’ve seen it happen in my life again and again. 

It is important that you begin to pay attention to what you’re thinking about. I’ll often catch myself thinking something in fear or anxiety. That is a surefire way to create a situation in your life that is borne out of fear. You need to stop, notice what you’re thinking about, and actively change your thought. If you are used to believing bad things about yourself, as I’ve been conditioned to do, it’s also important to shift your self-concept. You must believe that you are good, and that good things can happen in your life. You must know that you deserve joy and happiness. Think those thoughts that you would dare to think if you knew you could not fail, if you knew you could have your wildest dreams. Think those thoughts.

It can be hard to just start thinking thoughts about a life you wish to step into. It helps me to say “thank you” for what I’m wishing to create in my life. For example, “thank you God for (insert dream/wish here).” It also helps to get aligned with God, your heart, and your higher self before actively working to create something. Then you are sure to build your dreams on a strong foundation.

Wishing you positive thoughts and beautiful realities. 

Loving Yourself

“Include yourself among those you love” – Conversations with God

Did you love yourself today? It can seem easy (or not) to say “Sure, I love myself,” but what does that mean in the day to day workings of a life? In the in-between moments and unremarkable days? Learning to love yourself takes time. It’s not just a feeling. It’s also a state of being that will ripple out into the world around you. It’s hard to stay in bad situations when you love yourself as God loves you. 

My journey to self-love is constantly evolving. It took a big leap when I felt the love God had for me, but it still hasn’t been easy to fully love myself. I had been given many opposite messages over the years, and I believed them to my core. It was humbling to feel the love of God and then to see the world I had created for myself, and the world I was living in. 

It would take a near constant effort on my part of feel that love in every moment. When I remember to, I try. I connect to it. I pray. Prayer and truly connecting to God in my heart in help a lot. A lot of the time life takes over and I get busy and stressed. But each moment counts, and each time I love myself, I can love myself a little more.
