7th September 2010 - today's facebook email

Think about what you want, not what you don’t want. Guard your thoughts carefully, because they create your experiences.


Sometimes it seems that our thoughts choose us, but this is never the case. We always choose our thoughts – every moment. Our thoughts always have an effect, and there are no neutral thoughts. One-half second before you hold a thought, you decide to hold it. So, with practice, you can learn to monitor and alter your thoughts. This is the equivalent of putting your hands on the steering wheel of your life.

One way to take control of your thoughts is to use affirmations, so what are they?

An affirmation is really anything we say or think and a lot of what we normally say or think is quite negative and does not create good experiences for us. We have to retrain our thinking and speaking into positive patterns if we want to change our lives. An affirmation opens the way; it is the beginning point of change. In essence you are saying to your subconscious mind, “I am taking responsibility, I am aware that there is something I can do to change”

When I talk about ‘doing affirmations’ I mean to consciously choose words to help to eliminate something from your life or to help to create something new in your life.

Every thought you think and every word you speak is an affirmation!

All our self-talk is a stream of affirmations, you are using affirmations every moment whether you know it or not, you are affirming and creating your life’s experiences with every word and every thought. Your beliefs are merely habitual thinking patterns that you learnt as a child, many of them work very well for you, other beliefs may be limiting your ability to create the very things you may say you want.

What you want and what you believe you deserve may be very different! You need to pay attention to your thoughts so that you can begin to eliminate the ones that are creating experiences that you do not want in your life.

Also realise that every complaint is an affirmation of something you think you don’t want in your life. Every time you get angry you are affirming that you want more anger in your life. Every time you feel like a victim you are affirming that you want to continue to feel like a victim. If you feel that life doesn’t give you what you want in your world then it is certain that you will never have the goodies that life gives to others until you change the way you think and talk. You are not a bad person for thinking the way that you do, you have just never learnt how to think and talk. The world is now just beginning to learn that our thoughts create our experiences, your parents probably didn’t know this so they could not teach it to you, they taught you how to look at life the way their parents had taught them. So nobody is wrong, however, it is time for all of us to wake up and to begin to consciously create our lives in a way that pleases and supports us. You can do it, I can do it, we can all do it. You just need to learn how.

So choose a specific area of your life, obviously diet is the main topic hear so we’ll start there.

Some people say affirmations don’t work, which is an affirmation in itself, however if they’re saying, “Every day I’m getting slimmer and healthier”, then thinking “Oh this is stupid it won’t work”, which affirmation will win out, the negative one because it is part of a long standing habitual way of looking at life. Saying your affirmations once a day then complaining the rest of the day won’t work either, the complaining ones will always win because they are usually more of them.

So you have to believe to achieve. Think happy thoughts – its that simple and its doable!

The way you choose to think right now is exactly that – A CHOICE!

You won’t change overnight, but if you continually chose to think positively then you will feel better – I promise!

So whats your affirmation for today going to be?

“I can do it”
“I am in control”
"Focus on Happiness"
"I love the me, I'm shrinking to be"

Choose one that suits you.

Remember your thinking is the only thing you will ever have total control over in your life!

Life starts now…

Are you living yet?
