Kiss 2016 Goodbye! 


What a year! Whether it was good, bad or both – take some time before it’s over to reflect on your 2016.

I cannot stress how important it is to get this year out of your system. Even if it was great – looking back will help you determine how to move forward.

We have roughly two more days available to us to think about what we have dealt with, attracted to ourselves, learned from, should have learned from, etc.

By giving this year its due attention now, we ensure that we don’t drag the undesired, onward. As you go through the year and all of its greatness, highlight what was amazing and incredible and use that positive energy to help you envision the year you want 2017 to be!

Grab a pen real fast and write down five to ten buzz words that you WANT to experience in and as your life next year. Dream big! Next year is next week, so think as immediately as you can! Your vision will become your reality as soon as you believe it can be!

If 2016 wasn’t your year – never fear! It’s over! Don’t get sucked into the vacuum of commiseration at the year’s commencement by those who want to keep talking about how awful 2016 was. We are symbolically welcoming a clean slate, a fresh start and infinite opportunities to create our ultimate lives!

Happy New Year to YOU, with gratitude!

Thank you!!

12 Negatives You Can Eliminate with Gratitude – Part 3 of 3

no-negativity-sign

  1. Poverty
  2. Anger
  3. Frustration
  4. Envy
  5. Hate
  6. Fatigue
  7. Sadness
  8. Lack
  9. Depression
  10. Inequality
  11. Inferiority
  12. Sickness

In this third and final part of this series, I am going to teach you how to adjust your reality to eliminate the negative feelings of Depression, Inequality, Inferiority and Sickness from your life.

Gratitude has the power to eliminate Depression. Depression is a perceived reality.

Gratitude has the power to eliminate Inequality. Inequality is a perceived reality.

Gratitude has the power to eliminate feelings of Inferiority. Inferiority is a perceived reality.

Gratitude has the power to eliminate Sickness. Sickness is a perceived reality.

 

Take a look at these four very unique realities. They are all so different, yet they are all the same. What you look at and recognize as your “life” is your perceived reality. That means that what you are experiencing is “real” – according to you. What is real to you is not exactly real to someone else.

Depression is a big deal, or so it is perceived to be. There are plenty of medications for it, counseling services and other methods of handling what is considered to be a huge epidemic the world over; it’s also quite lucrative for those in the drug industry. Depression, like every other feeling or amalgamation of symptoms, stems from Thought. Depressed thoughts are thoughts that lack spiritual elevation. To think in a depressed manner is to focus on the lack of thoughts or the opposite of thoughts that promote joy and spiritual elevation. When the Spirit is elevated, the release that is experienced is euphoric and so immense that similar thoughts are attracted and similar feelings of euphoria are experienced. Depression is definitely a condition that you suffer from – a conditioned way of thinking that causes you to experience pain and suffering. Depression is a choice; it may not be a conscious choice, but if you’re aren’t choosing joy, you’re choosing its opposite. Contrary to anything else you may have been told throughout all of your experiences with this “condition” – Depression is controllable and it IS fixable – you already have everything you need to eliminate it from your life. Do it!

Inequality is a state, a feeling, a noticeable label and as time progresses, the fight for equal rights among human beings is becoming more and more visible. Throughout the course of recorded history, there has always been bias, preference, segregation, elitism, sexism, racism, phobias, etc. – why? Fear. When groups of people are conditioned by fear, the result is Hate. The fear that is instilled is that the existence of a particular group will disrupt the way of living for other groups. Human beings buy into that notion, they join the masses and the uprisings and they too, want to join the fight to “protect what is theirs.” I’m going to let you in on a little secret. There is plenty of everything, for everyone. There always has been and there always will be. The only ones who can disrupt ways of living are the people who believe that their way of living is able to be disrupted. If your perceived reality is aligned with what I’ve stated above, you will always have plenty of everything – because that’s what you believe to be true in your reality.

Inferiority is a perceived reality. To feel inferior is to allow someone else to seem superior to you in your perceived reality. No one is superior to you – we are all equal. Yes, there are plenty of people who we meet along the way as we progress through life who need gentle reminding that we are all equal and that no one is better than anyone else. To not feel inferior, one has to decide within oneself that they are as awesome as they think those who they used to think were superior to them, are. When you see greatness or superiority in others, take the negativity out of it and ask yourself what it is that you see that makes you feel that they are better, higher or of more value than you. Locate those characteristics, figure out how you can model the great ones in and as your life and move forward. Inferiority will never serve you and it’s best to get rid of it.

Finally, we have arrived at Sickness. As we have seen in the past eleven items, every negative exists because of perception. Therefore, Sickness is no different. Sickness exists in the minds of those who believe that they are always sick, can get sick, etc. Ask the people who proudly proclaim with absolute defiance and certainty, “I never get sick.” See if you can figure out why. What do they do? Health is a state of mind. What starts in the mind is physicalized by the body. This is a perfect example of believing yourself into illness or believing yourself into health.

Whatever you think about, you bring about.

Create your ultimate life “with gratitude” and your life will transform!

The time for happiness is NOW.

The time for joy is ALWAYS.

The time for you to create your ultimate life, has come. Join me! We’ll do it TOGETHER!

12 Negatives You Can Eliminate ‘With Gratitude’ – Part 2 of 3

no-negativity-sign

 

  1. Poverty
  2. Anger
  3. Frustration
  4. Envy
  5. Hate
  6. Fatigue
  7. Sadness
  8. Lack
  9. Depression
  10. Inequality
  11. Inferiority
  12. Sickness

In this article I am going to teach you how to adjust your reality to eliminate the negative feelings of Hate, Fatigue, Sadness and Lack from your life.

Gratitude has the power to eliminate Hate. Hate is a perceived reality.

Gratitude has the power to eliminate Fatigue. Fatigue is a perceived reality.

Gratitude has the power to eliminate feelings of Sadness. Sadness is a perceived reality.

Gratitude has the power to eliminate Lack. Lack is a perceived reality.

 

Take a look at these four very unique realities. They are all so different, yet they are all the same. What you look at and recognize as your “life” is your perceived reality. That means that what you are experiencing is “real” – according to you. What is real to you is not exactly real to someone else.

In my observations, Hate is one of the more complex realities people choose to live in. Hate is always a choice – whether we realize we are choosing it or not. Hate is not inherent; it is always taught and is sadly easier to pass to others than joy. Hate is such a strong feeling but it is also a very casual feeling. “I hate that shirt.” You might not loathe that shirt, but “hate” was just the word that came to mind because it is so readily available in our daily lives. Adjusting your choice of words to saying, possibly, “I don’t care for that shirt” instead of “hate” clarifies your intention just the same, without introducing such a terrible sentiment into the situation. Hate, when freely used, slips into our subconscious and dictates our beliefs about life circumstances as well as other people. “I hate them –they’re so…”; “I hate you when you say that…” “I hate when this happens!” Just having to write those examples was hard for me because I don’t have an ounce of hate in me. There was a time in my life, very early on, that the feelings of “hate” were in my life – but that was just because I didn’t understand the severity of my feelings and I couldn’t articulate exactly what I felt, nor did I understand why I felt that way.

Hate is present when one cannot appropriately articulate frustration that has stemmed from a lack of clarity.

Fatigue is a real thing; or is it? Sure, we all feel tired when our bodies require sleep; but what about feeling overall “life fatigue” all the time? If you do not lead a laborious life where you are constantly pushing your body to its limits, it can be hard to understand why you’d be confused as to why you’re always so tired. Fatigue is a lack of mental energy – the physical nature of energy through physiological expression is merely the personification of the mental processes. We hear people say things like, “I have to psych myself up for it” or “I’ll get there, I have to mentally prepare for this workout.” Why? Because the mind is formulating and summoning the necessary mental energy needed to perform a desired physical action – that’s why so many understand that they have to go within to get energized. “This song really pumps me up and gets me going!” Why? The mental energy that ignites the endorphins and rushes the adrenaline provokes the reaction for physiological response from the mind.

Overcoming fatigue is an inside job.

Sadness is a lack of happiness. To cure temporary sadness, even chronic sadness – the remedy is the same: the chronic OPPOSITE. If you disrupt feelings of overwhelming sadness with feelings of overwhelming happiness, happiness wins and sadness is defeated. This is the shortest segment of these four – it’s that simple. Replace the undesired with the desired and if you do it consistently enough, your life will change and sadness, the undesired, will leave you forever.

Replace the undesired with your new desires and your life will transform!

Finally, Lack is the absence of Abundance. To perceive that you do not have an abundance of anything is to acknowledge and affirm that you do indeed have LACK. Where there is Lack, there is only room for like thoughts and feelings – not room for Abundance to appear. For Abundance to appear, one has to acknowledge and affirm…Abundance. What we think about, multiplies. If your focus is Lack, you’ll get more of that. Who wants more of that?!

Create your ultimate life WITH GRATITUDE for your ABUNDANCE and YOUR LIFE WILL TRANSFORM!

In my next article I will teach you why and how to eliminate the final four negatives; Depression, Inequality, Inferiority and Sickness.

The time for happiness is NOW.

The time for joy is ALWAYS.

The time for you to create your ultimate life, has come. Join me! We’ll do it TOGETHER!

Twelve Negatives You Can Eliminate with Gratitude

no-negativity-sign

Twelve Negatives You Can Eliminate with Gratitude

  1. Poverty
  2. Anger
  3. Frustration
  4. Envy
  5. Hate
  6. Fatigue
  7. Sadness
  8. Lack
  9. Depression
  10. Inequality
  11. Inferiority
  12. Sickness

Beginning with this post and continuing with the next two posts, I am going to segment these twelve into blocks of four and teach you why and how to squash everything negative with Gratitude!

Here’s the foundation:

Gratitude has the power to eliminate poverty. Poverty is a perceived reality.

Gratitude has the power to eliminate anger. Anger is a perceived reality.

Gratitude has the power to eliminate feelings of frustration. Frustration is a perceived reality.

Gratitude has the power to eliminate envy. Envy is a perceived reality.

Take a look at these four very unique realities. They are all so different, yet they are all the same.

What you look at and recognize as your “life” is your perceived reality.

That means that what you are experiencing is “real” – according to you. What is real to you is not necessarily real to someone else.

When one feels like they are living in poverty, there may be multiple examples in their reality that support their feeling. From the amount of money they see in their bank account to the condition of the dwelling they live in, poverty seems like a very real thing and it’s quite understandable why people think they are doomed to stay in poverty for the rest of their lives. If one does not know differently or the idea of something better than that reality is one that is too hard to grasp, they will exist in that state indefinitely.

Anger and Frustration are siblings of Poverty. In the reality of Anger and Frustration, one experiencing those feelings experiences event after event of angering and frustrating circumstances. What they continuously experience develops as their reality. Until they learn how to choose emotional reactions other than anger and frustration, the events of their life won’t change and those negative feelings will continue to be personified as their life circumstances.

Finally, feelings of envy do not serve one who is trying to create their ultimate life because feelings of envy are loudly proclaiming, “I feel badly because I do not have that.” The attitude of envy produces lack, which undermines the feelings of abundance and negates all of the positive energy that one has been channeling. When you find yourself feeling envious, or wanting what another has from a sorrowful center of pity because you don’t have that as your own, knock that right out with…wait for it…GRATITUDE!!!

GRATITUDE IS THE GATEWAY TO GREATNESS!

Every single negative emotion can be squashed by becoming centered in Gratitude. Thinking thankful thoughts produces POSITIVE feelings that boost our endorphins and elevate our “happy centers.”

Tomorrow, I will teach you why and how to adjust the practice of Gratitude for Hate, Fatigue, Sadness and Lack.

The time for happiness is NOW.

The time for joy is ALWAYS.

The time for you to create your ultimate life, has come. Join me! We’ll do it TOGETHER!

Asking for Gratitude Always Gives an Answer

thinking

There is a difference between stating you are grateful and asking what you are grateful for.

Statements provoke empathy – we can relate to what we see. Questions require answers and because our brains cannot help but to quickly begin working to find the answers to the questions it’s been asked, more comes from a question posed than a statement made.

While the statement of “I am grateful” is wonderful, it’s somewhat limiting. When you ask yourself, “What am I grateful for?” you create an infinite list of options for your brain to scan and upon locating, the answers appear, one after another.

“What am I grateful for?” is a powerful, open-ended question that provokes limitless responses.

Whereas, I am grateful is a powerful but closed-ended statement that provokes an empathetic response of agreement rather than requiring elaboration.

When you ask yourself, “what am I grateful for?”,  your mind introduces the question as well as the responses. Because it is providing both the question and the answers, unequivocal and devoted thought is being given to the sole topic of focus, which is giving thanks and producing more thoughts of what else you want in and as your life to ultimately be grateful for.

Get in the habit of training your mind to ask the most important question it can – “what am I grateful for?”

Every time you ask, every time you inquire, you have a different answer and feel more and more inspired!

The time for happiness is NOW.

The time for joy is ALWAYS.

The time for you to create your ultimate life, has come. Join me! We’ll do it TOGETHER!
