We are all looking for the same thing in life: To love and be loved, feel good, important and worthy, have a purpose, live our passion, be inspired and so on.
But what many of us don’t realize is just how powerful we are. How much control we really do have when it comes to living the life of our dreams and showing up big.
We think we need more money, to look differently, be a certain age or from a certain family, wait for the “right” person to come along, rack up a million social media followers, have something or be anything else than what and who we are right now.
I’m calling BS on that self-limiting story. I’m telling you that whatever you want, you can decide to call it into your life today at this very moment.
It only takes two words: I am.
Whatever follows these words will find you, and show up in your life, so be very conscious and deliberate about what you attach I am to.
For example, if you find yourself constantly saying, “I am so tried, frustrated, confused, broke, lonely, heartbroken, sad, angry.” I don’t need to know you to know what your life looks and feels like. I bet it’s pretty tiring, frustrating, confusing, lacking, lonesome, heartbreaking, sad and upsetting. Am I right?
That’s because when you say I am…, you’re inviting in whatever you attach to it. In other words, you are giving it permission to be in your life (good or bad).
What if instead you said, “I am so excited, happy, free, healthy, loving, abundant, valuable, smart, kind, attractive, supported and safe.” I can only imagine how much better you would feel and how different your life would look.
This isn’t about lying to yourself and saying, “I am in perfect health,” when really you are sick. Today, for example, I am under the weather, but I’m not focusing on that. I keep saying, “I am so lucky to get to spend the day in my robe writing blogs and doing work that I hope inspires others to feel empowered.
I am empowered. I am honoring my body with rest and nutritious food. I am thankful for my cozy home to create in. I am blessed with beautiful friends and family. I am happy.”
You get the idea. So while physically I may not be 100%, I still feel really great! And by feeling great, I naturally attract more great things into my life. I can say this with confidence because I am witness to it day in and day out.
That’s the powerful thing about the Law of Attraction, it is constantly working whether you believe in it or not. You can choose whether you want to curse or bless your life.
Try it out for yourself today. Once you become more conscious of your thoughts, you will begin to see patterns and how you can clean them up, and attract what you actually want into your life. Remember, you are in control and have all the power. When you blame, judge or make excuses, you are giving all of your power away. No Bueno!
What do you want to invite into your life today?
What or who do you want to let go of?
I’ll give you an example. I was talking to a dear friend who is trying to get pregnant. Instead of thinking and saying, “I’m too old to have a child, it’s so hard, it’s so expensive, I’m so scared, what if this bad thing or that bad thing happens, I’m so frustrated, I’m so overwhelmed, sad, etc.”
What if the new story my friend created was, “It is so easy to get pregnant, and so fun to try. I love all the quality time I get to spend with my husband. I am so healthy, feel great, and invite our new baby into our lives with open arms. I cannot wait to meet him or her. Wow, trying to get pregnant is so fun and easy. I am so happy!”
Even just typing this made me happy! Can you feel the joy behind the language, thoughts and feelings?
Some people tell me, “Well, it’s hard to say positive things about myself, my work, my partner, etc.”
Are you telling me it’s easy to feel like crap all the time?!
I think we can all decide to choose again, and lean towards joy and what makes us feel good rather than live in fear and be miserable. Life is meant to be enjoyable! Let’s enjoy it!
The best part? The key to enjoying life doesn’t cost a dime.
We just have to consciously choose what we attach I am to.
I am thankful for all of you. Have a beautiful day!
