Direct your Attention.
We are creating our lives through the power and energy of intention every day. It sounds simple enough and it is, in principle. The conscious application is a bit more complex. What many do not understand is that the universe operates on a foundation of attraction, meaning that the only word that is ever truly uttered (no matter what escapes your lips) is "YES." There is no "NO," so that which you think you are resisting, prohibiting and preventing, you are actually inviting. Whatever you speak or focus upon is what you will get more of by virtue of your invitation. The emotion that surrounds it is the fuel that energizes and escalates its presence in your life.
If you subscribe to this belief (I say it is a truth, but you may consider it a belief), it means that you must be vigilant and disciplined in your focus. Where are you directing your attention? Are you focusing on your worry about the bills that need to be paid or the abundance that continues to flow into your life? Are you focusing on the negative characteristics of your partner or are you grateful his/her many positive qualities? Are you speaking praise to the many blessings in your life or are you keeping an inventory of all that continues to "go wrong"?
Today, take note of the words that you speak. Every time that you catch yourself using the words "don't," "not," and "no," you are speaking what you do NOT want. You are placing an order to the universe and saying "yes" to an unwanted desire. So, when you catch yourself in this habit, stop and speak what you DO want instead. Notice the difference in how you feel. The energy is very different. Even if you do not subscribe to the belief that you have the power to attract with your thoughts, words, and action, consider how differently you will be perceived when you are only speaking of your desires and your gratitude. It is a game changer!
Success or sabotage? The highest levels of success are conscious endeavors. What do you really, really want? Begin speaking as if you are already secure in the fact that it is quickly on the way.
Is this going to be an incredible day? What is your intention for the day? Allow it to serve you, realizing that this day is never coming again.
