Hey girl, hey!
Let me ask you a serious question...
How many times have you longed for more in your life?... More money, more time, more luxury items, more beneficial relationships, more happiness… and really just more abundance in your life overall?
If this sounds all too familiar to you, trust me girlfriend, you’re not alone...
We’ve all been there. We’re human. And often times the desires of our hearts are much bigger than the current realities we’re experiencing… but I’ll let you in on a little secret (shhhh!). What if I told you there was a way to live the life that you always imagined for yourself? And that YOU could one day have all the money, all the time, and all the happiness you ever wanted.
Would that interest you?
Well girlfriend, since I love you so much... I’d like to share with you some principles I have been incorporating into my life on a daily basis and how I’ve been seeing abundance manifest right before my eyes.
Let’s talk about... The Law of Attraction!
If you’ve never heard of the belief system called The Law of Attraction… maybe you’re more familiar with the term: Karma. Simply put, The Law of Attraction is the ability for us all as spiritual beings, living a human experience, to attract into our lives whatever we most focus our attention on. It’s where we use the power of our thoughts and materialize those thoughts into reality, while believing that The Universe (or God) is encouraging, guiding, and supporting us toward fulfilling our wildest dreams. Now this might sound like some far out, spacey-type shit… but let me tell you, this stuff is real! And I believe it, because I see my thoughts manifesting right before me everyday... and I guarantee so do you… Okay… I’ll give you a personal example: There are days when I wake up in a horrible mood. I’ll roll outta bed with a stanky-ass attitude, because I’m really not looking forward to going to work that day. But I’ll get up anyway, get myself together and begin looking in my closet for something to wear. RELATED: How to Still be Productive at a Job You Hate! So as I’m sliding through the hangers of my wardrobe, I’m thinking to myself... “Ugh, I have nothing to wear! I feel fat. These pants don’t fit right. I really wish I could just wear my onesie!” But finally... I find something I halfway like, grab my stuff, and head out the door. And as I’m getting in my car, I’m already feelin’ some type of way, but I proceed to drive to work still in a bad-ass mood. Now I‘m noticing that the traffic is hella bad, my stomach is growling and I’m hungry because I didn’t eat breakfast, and the clock keeps reminding me that I’m late to work... So noooow I’m thinking about all the shit I gotta do when I finally arrive at work, and how that one co-worker (that I don’t like) bet not say nothin’ to me, because today is definitely Not. The. Day! Then the whole rest of my day is just straight-up boo boo… all because my negative thoughts turned into negative words, which turned into negative actions... which then turned into the manifestation of a whole negative-ass day! Has that ever happened to you?! Where it just seems like one bad thing after another just keeps happening?! It’s kinda like that saying… “When it rains, it pours!” But guess what, girlfriend?.... Guess. What? You’re creating that! Lucky for you (and me), all this can be changed around by using two things you already born with…Your mind. And your emotions. So let’s explore the 5 ways that you can begin creating a life full of happiness and abundance, right now! 1. Be Grateful! Being grateful is the quickest way to manifesting abundance in your life! Instead of focusing your attention and energy on the things you don’t have or wish you had, try being grateful for the things you already have. For example: Be grateful for the clean air you breathe. Be grateful for the food you have in your fridge. Be grateful for the clothes you have in your closet. Be grateful for whatever mode of transportation you have, that gets you to and from the places you need to go. Be grateful for the money you already have in your bank account (even if it’s only a little bit). Be grateful for your arms, legs, fingers and toes. Be grateful for your place of employment. And most importantly, just be all-around grateful for your life! Try to refrain from worrying or complaining about the things that you're lacking and watch how the Universe will begin to pour blessings into your life! 2. Think Positively! “See the power of the mind is not a JOKE…!” (in my Drake voice) In all seriousness though, your thoughts are a very powerful tool when it comes to creating your reality. So when you think things like “I’ll always be broke”, “I’ll never be good enough”, “I’m just not that pretty” or “I feel fat”... you’re creating your reality to be just that! Those thoughts that you’re thinking are planting seeds within your subconscious mind and it’s playing over and over like a broken record until you begin to believe them. So whenever you feel yourself starting to go down the mudslide of negative thoughts… stop yourself in your tracks and make a conscience effort to change your negative thoughts into positive ones. Think things like “Money is readily available to me whenever I need it.”, “I’m more than enough… just the way I am”, “I am wonderfully and beautifully created”, or “I’m sexy and I know it”! Re-create these thoughts over and over again in your mind... Think them. Write them. Or record them to listen to later…. and you’ll be amazed at how much better you feel when your thoughts are full of constant positivity. RELATED: How to Maintain Your Sexy! 3. Speak It and Believe It! Did you know that the thoughts you think become the words you speak? So when you think positive things, you speak positive things and vice versa. That’s why it’s so important to be careful with the things you think annnd the things you say. Because once the words come out of your mouth, you’re verbally giving life to whatever thoughts you had in your mind... which will inevitably turn into your reality. Saying things like “I’ll never have enough money to do the things I want.”, or “All the good men/women are taken these days and I’ll never be in a happy relationship.” Girlfriend, you and I both know that these are things that you actually do want, but you’re blocking your blessings with all that negativity spewing out of your mouth! And if your circle of friends are thinking and speaking the same negativity that you are… ya’ll are just recycling that shit back and forth to each other! No. If you’re ready to change your life for the better, find a circle of friends that will be on this journey of positivity with you and practice speaking words of love, life, encouragement, and success to yourself and to others... then watch how the Universe will supply you with your every wish and desire. 4. Act As If! So you got the “thinking” part down. And you got the “saying” part down. Now the next step is to act as if what you want is already here... So you want to be a millionaire? Act as if you are one! Now wait though… (because somebody might get me confused). Don’t go blowin’ all your money saying that I told you to do so, because that’s not where I’m going with this. But what I really mean is… if you were a millionaire right now, how would you act? What would you wear? What would you do? Where would you go? And as you think of these things… act in a way that makes you feel like a millionaire! Start researching what trips you would take. Write down the things you would buy. Think about all the people you would help… and as you’re going through these motions, the Universe will be preparing you for what you’re positively expecting to come. Don’t worry about where or when it will come… just know that it will come and when it does, you’ll have done all the work to prepare for yourself for your gifts’ arrival. 5. Feel It Real! Recently, I read a book that changed my whole perspective on how I create my own reality. The book entitled, “Feel It Real!” by Denise Coats is basically a guide to manifesting your heart's truest desires. In this book, she discusses how the emotions you feel significantly affect the manifestations you realize. For example, you may say you’re grateful for the home you live in, or your car or your job… but if you don’t actually feel grateful, then trust me, girlfriend... you’re not tricking the Universe, you're just telling it to keep on giving you that which makes you feel bad. So as I was reading this book, the author made a statement that really resonated with me (as Oprah would call it... an "Aha moment"). She said “the Universe speaks vibration-ese”... meaning that although what you think and what you say are important, what really manifests your thoughts into things... is feeling those emotions of gratitude, positivity, and love. These emotions send vibrations to the Universe, letting it know that you want more of those good feelings, which then signals it to bring you more of what you desire. So how have these practices been helping me? Girl, let me tell you. I feel better emotionally, physically annnd spiritually. Money now comes to me easily and effortlessly. My business is expanding and successfully thriving. I have more clarity of the mind. I worry waaaay less (because I used to be a ball of burning anxiety). My relationship with my partner is growing stronger. And overall, I'm just so happy with where I am, and I'm eager to see what more is to come. Now I'm not saying that every single day is peachy, because that's definitely not the case, but I can say that I have much more good days than bad ones and with practice, every day gets better and better... and I'm grateful for that! But ya know... I really could go on and on about how much The Law of Attraction has changed my life, but I’ll save the rest for another day and another blog post. However, I encourage you to try implementing some of these principles into your life right now, and watch what begins to unfold as soon as this day! I’d love to hear what you think of this post!
