By Sheri: I have often brought up the message of be careful of what you say after the words “I AM” as you are declaring your destiny. It is vitally important that we choose our words wisely as each one of us is in a state of manifestation and we are all manifesting what we speak.
For those that say “I AM nothing, I AM a failure, and I AM never going to have my dreams come true” you are correct. You have declared your destiny. You can just as easily change the words to “I AM amazing. I AM learning life lessons all the time so I can advance, I AM going to realize all my dreams and bring them to fruition.”
The question is, however, why do we so easily declare our inadequacies (at least the ones that we feel we have) and have such a difficult time with the positives? When I queried this out to some of you, the biggest response was “because I don’t see any of the good” or “ I don’t see any of my dreams coming true” or “Nothing good ever happens to me” or the big one,” Every time I get my hopes up, something bad happens”.
The beliefs that each one of us grew up with are what we tend to carry through in our adult life unless, we each take steps to acknowledge them, release the negative beliefs, and create a new positive space in our minds and our inner being.
Success is only what you believe. It is not what others see, however, it is the truth of who you are. The homeless person sees you as successful because you are not living on the street, however you may see yourself as a failure because you are not living in the home of your dreams. The middle class sees the rich as successful, however the poor see the middle class as successful. It is all a matter of perspective. What you create in your thoughts should always be a path of goodness, fulfilment and a knowing that “I AM whatever I choose to believe I AM”.
Each day for one month, I ask that before your feet hit the ground, you say the following mantra:
“ I AM BLESSED. I AM BEAUTIFUL INSIDE AND OUT. I AM AMAZING. I AM SUCCESSFUL. I AM LOVED. I AM ALL THAT I CHOOSE TO BE. I AM SMART. I AM GIFTED. I AM A WARRIOR AND A SURVIVOR. I AM VICTORIOUS OVER ALL THAT TRIES TO COME AGAINST ME. I AM GOING TO HAVE THE BEST DAY EVER.”
If you are seeking work, add in a line that says, “I AM GOING TO BE HIRED FOR THE PERFECT JOB BY AN AMAZING COMPANY WITH EXCELLENT BENEFITS, RENUMERATION AND RECOGNITION OF ALL I HAVE TO OFFER.”
If you are seeking a life partner, “I KNOW I AM GOING TO BE BLESSED WITH THE PERFECT PARTNER WHO WILL BE A PERFECT MATCH WITH ALL THE QUALITIES I SEEK FROM THEM AND THEY SEEK FROM ME.”
It is the belief that comes from within you and changing your thoughts, words and actions to match with what you seek for your life. I seek happiness therefore, I AM happy. I seek love therefore I AM love. What I look for in life, I must be to myself or nothing changes. If I am miserable, I will only attract more misery in. If I am depressed, I will only attract more things to depress me. If I am in a lack of consciousness, I will attract more lack in my life. It is very simple and yet so many have such a difficult time shifting their thinking to believe that they truly are worth the best and they can in fact, declare it with their words, actions and thoughts. Be who you want to be. Never create yourself as less than anyone in this lifetime.
Just that small exercise will start to change the way you feel, the way opportunities flow into your life and the direction your mind has you going in. You will become all that you are meant to be and when you kick the negative aspects of your thoughts to the curb, you will become a better person working toward your highest good.
It is that simple.
Blessings to all!
