Hello! I hope you’re having a wonderful day today. Today my question for you is: “Where is your attention?” In the School of Metaphysics we like to say: “Your attention is your most precious commodity.” Because it really IS how you create your life, where you put your attention.
So, I’d like you to think today about the words that you use, particularly when it’s relating to your longings and discontent. Something that we talk about in the Vision Workshop that I present is: How are you framing your desires? How are you framing your dreams? You want to make sure that you choose your words carefully, that you present images to your inner mind that your inner mind will be creating for you, not against you. So, to illustrate an example of how you have to be careful with your words, I’d like you to right now NOT think about purple elephants. Ok. I don’t know if you can imagine purple elephants, but I just love those. Ok. The example we use is: “Don’t think about the Statue of Liberty. Don’t think about her hand raised, don’t think about the harbor, don’t think about the crown, don’t think about the torch in her hand. . . . ” What are you picturing right now? Exactly what I told you NOT to, right? Because your inner mind, your subconscious mind — as it is called — does not understand the word “don’t.” It thinks in pictures, so all of the nouns — all of the things, all of the people, whatever images you’re using — doesn’t matter if you’re using “don’t” — your subconscious mind is receiving those, so you really need to be careful.
So, think about how you’re wording what you want. You want to create as clear a picture as possible of what you DO want in your life. Some examples we give in the workshop are: Do you want to “live in financial abundance“? vs. “Getting out of debt.” Do you want to “move with comfort and ease“? vs. “wanting no more back pain.” So, look at the difference there. You have the focus on abundance, and you have the focus on debt. Just feel the difference. You have the focus on comfort, ease, health — and the focus on back pain. Even though you’re saying “No more back pain.” Your inner mind is hearing: Oh! Back pain! MORE of that! Do you want to enjoy living life at your ideal weight? Or lose weight? A lot of us are talking about losing weight, losing weight, losing weight! You really want to focus on being healthy, vibrant, strong, ideal weight. Focus on the positive because that is what you want to feed your mind. That is what you want to attract and create more of. And maybe for one of my future videos I’ll go into how I am extremely — up until now I’ve been extremely good at attracting exactly what I don’t want because I’ve been very good at identifying my discontent. It’s even more important to identify what you would really love, what you truly desire. So, think about your desires today. Choose your words carefully, and create the life you would truly love living.
Much love and blessings to you all. Have a wonderful day. ❤
