“Do not anticipate trouble, or worry about what may never happen. Keep in the sunlight.”
– Benjamin Franklin
At least three times in the last couple of days, I’ve heard someone say that change doesn’t happen until you feel it inside – until you get “a calling”. It’s no coincidence that I haven’t heard anyone say that for the last five months, and now all of sudden, I keep hearing it – because I’m experiencing it.
Being positive is it’s own reward, but when I started this journey a little over 5 months ago, I planned on showing you through my own experience that keeping a positive outlook in all situations will help to manifest your dream life. I didn’t really know how, I just knew that it would. I’ve shared many experiences with you throughout the year where I was able to see the good in a bad situation, and I was able to overcome it and move forward without getting stuck in the negative.
I also told you that I was going to share my goals with you, and give you a front row seat to see how my thoughts manifest my dreams in real time, but I haven’t done that because I haven’t been using visualization to manifest my desires since I started this blog. At least not all my desires.
I didn’t anticipate that I would hit the ground running with my desire to be a writer – instead of sharing my thoughts and how they were manifesting my desires, I just did the writing and realized that I was actually manifesting my desire to become a writer without even planning on it.
Now, I see that taking the first step to create this blog was all I had to do to manifest this desire, the rest just fell into place because my mind was already there. In other words, it didn’t take much for me to believe I was a writer because writing is the criteria that defines a writer – and I am writing.
When you take the first step towards your desire, no matter what it is, or how small a step, you send a message to your subconscious that you are ready to receive your desire, and the Universe goes to work to make it a reality.
Looking back to when I started this blog, I realize that although I had all the tools to manifest my other desires, my head wasn’t in the game yet – I knew how to use the law of attraction to consciously create my desires, which I’ve shared with you over the last five months, and I’ve maintained a positive outlook for the most part, but I was afraid to put my desires out there to be scrutinized, because I had doubts about whether I would be able to do it.
I was afraid of failing and that means that I didn’t truly believe I would manifest my desires.
The thing about believing is that there is no chance to fail, because when you truly believe that you have received that which you desire, you don’t need a plan B, because plan A is already a reality.
For the entire time, I’ve had no doubts about the power of positive thought, or that the Law of Attraction is an infallible law, so what was the problem, what was blocking my belief?
I didn’t believe I would manifest my desires because I wasn’t ready to receive – part of me felt like I didn’t deserve it. I’ve written about how important it is to love yourself many times. In fact, it is the starting point of all manifestation – if you don’t feel worthy of your desire, you will have internal conflict between wanting something and feeling like you deserve it. As long as you feel undeserving, it will not manifest.
“Love yourself first and everything else falls into line. You really have to love yourself to get anything done in this world.”
– Lucille Ball
I’m now starting to see the fruits of being positive. As this month began, I started my visualization practice to manifest my health and fitness goals without consciously planning to start doing it. What has happened is that the last 5 months of trying to see the good in everything and having faith in the power of the Universe have naturally transformed my thinking to a point where I believe I deserve everything I desire. That’s the power of positivity!
Just focus on the positive and keep in the sunlight, the rest will fall into place.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!
