As with anything that we try to do, we must clear our mind. We all need to find a place …It’s really no secret that we create our own reality with out thoughts. Everything that we are or have is with us because we’ve wanted it. Whether it’s conscious or not, we bring things, people, and experiences to our lives with our way of thinking. Much like the verses in the bible that say “ask and ye shall receive”, our life follows the same message: ask, believe and receive. As with anything that we try to do, we must clear our mind. We all need to find a place where we can relax and clear our mind. The difference in going to this place rather than your place to relax is that this place is going to be the place where you let mind think and wander instead of JUST relaxing and letting go of your stress. It will become a place that you can think of your intentions in life or what you want and how you will get it. You want to make this place as comfortable and inviting as you can, so add a plant, a small water fountain, candles or whatever brings you peace.Now that you have found a place to clear your mind, you can think about and decide what you want or what gift you want to receive. It is important to have no other thoughts when you start to decide what you actually want. It could be a million dollars, a doctorate, to be a famous musician or outstanding athlete, or any number of other things. So, you should dream big because your psyche will start acting. That is why people often refer to someone going after a dream as being “psyched out”. I dreamed of teaching and being able to help teenagers so I went after what I wanted with a vengeance, working two jobs and studying hard. My friends said I was really “psyched out” about my future.When we have dreamed of something we really want, whether it is something we want to accomplish, own or be, we need to be clear with ourselves then we’ll start on the correct path. To excel, we must be specific and ask for what we want. If I say I want to lose weight, then just saying it is not specific enough. I should say that I want to be healthy, live longer, eat less, and look better. Because people have dreams and can clearly think of what they want and ask for it, they must also believe that they will achieve it. In order to achieve what you want, you’ll have a much better chance if you can visualize it. Many times basketball coaches will tell young people to “visualize” the ball going into the basket in order to score. It has been proven that imagining something is close to actually doing it. If your thoughts and feelings are on the same level as what you want, you will raise your emotional bar and expand your imagination. You have a great chance of being successful.When you realize that you can achieve your dreams by visualizing them, then you should express your gratitude. Make a list of all the things you are grateful for; and that list will bring more good things to you. It will allow your unconscious mind to take on what you are capable of doing. It will open your heart to give gratitude for the beautiful life that you have received. Gratitude should be an enormous part of your life and should come as natural as breathing.Once you’ve cleared your mind, decided what you wanted, visualized having it and expressed gratitude for what you have, your request is heard. The details of how it will happen will then fall into place. Make sure and stay positive by monitoring your feelings, but let go of trying to control things.Make sure whenever you start to feel down, sad or angry, quickly turn your feelings around so you will surrounded by good, positive vibes. So, remember to stay positive and do something that helps you feel good. Read a book, listen to music, walk in nature or anything else that will keep you inspired and feeling positive.Continue to be patient if your dreams do not come true in hours, days or even months. Just keep believing and sending out positive thoughts and feelings and continue to keep negative thoughts away. Remember to be grateful and really enjoy your gift when you do receive it. Surround yourself with the luxury of having the gift and enjoying it. Make it part of your life, nurture it, and let it grow. Look for the positive parts and always follow that path. Your life will be full of smiling, sweetness, happiness, and inspiration. Enjoy your life and expect it to be good.
