Celebrate the uniqueness that is you in this present moment. For as we age even day to day you are a one of a kind gem, a rare anomaly in time that can not be duplicated.
Excerpt from “Falling in Love with your True Self”
“Many call this emotional belief that a desire can happen just from you wanting it and believing it will happen without proof, as faith. You can think of it as faith or just the fact that you can have a desire manifest based solely on you permitting it into your existence based on your emotional reaction to it. Knowing that the power of your emotions are so important to your well-being it should become your priority to feel good.”
The journey to a desire can be more enjoyable than the manifestation of it.
Excerpt from “Falling in Love with your True Self”
“This is hard for many people to grasp. The idea that you can feel happiness before you obtain the thing you feel brings you happiness. This is where examining the journey to manifestation comes into play. Just as you have a journey on a road trip the journey to your manifestations and the creation of the idea are just as important.”
Many see change as a threat to what feels comfortable in their lives. As what feels easy and comfortable changes we fight against it causing us unhappiness.
Evolution and expansion are the basis for your life. As we expand from experiences within ourselves and the experiences with others your life follows a path around that expansion. The way you react to this expansion of your self and how you feel in any given moment is how your life will evolve.
If you oppose your natural progression that opposition will manifest a mirror image of your resistive emotions.
See the beauty and opportunity in change and embrace it for it’s powerful influence in your life. You will see it flow much smoother and your life will start to shape around your dreams.
“Happiness is a choice and your natural state of being. Your emotions are your guide that reveal if you are permitting or opposing your true self.” – Excerpt from “Falling in Love with your True Self” by Michael Vincent Ford
When we permit our true selves to flow naturally into our present existence then happiness follows. Worry, doubt and sadness are the result of opposing that natural flow. Every instance in life has a choice of how you perceive it.
Start to observe your emotions to people and situations in your life to see if you can possibly make a different choice of how you react at those times. When you start living a happier more present life everything else will follow suit.
I saw on the Louise Hay Facebook page and it really resonated with me. How many times do we hear someone tell us how bad their morning went or how something didn’t go their way? We can often relate but then its easy to take that negative situation and try and apply it to yourself. I think it’s important on a daily basis to separate yourself from the negative emotions of others and know that it’s not always true for you to think the same way.
When was the last time you felt lucky or even when did you last feel unlucky? When was the last time you explained someone’s good fortune as being a result of good luck? A lot of us have walked down the street and found a $20 bill or even a piece of jewelry, SCORE! Usually if I find it in a store or somewhere the person could possibly retrieve it I always hand it to the store owner or lost and found. Can’t risk unbalancing the karmic scales and end up on the unlucky scale. If the person who lost it comes back guess it was that person’s lucky day all on the account of me being honest. If it’s on the street with no owner in sight guess it’s my lucky day.
The belief of luck isn’t something I don’t think exists but it does brings up the question about the opposite issue, those unlucky times. You’ve heard the saying “luck is on my side”, but how do I get luck to pick me to be on his team more often? Luck can be described by many as the idea that abundance and happiness only happen when you deserve it because of good fortune or how the stars were aligned. Ever notice how when you feel lucky you are in good spirits and things seem to be happening for you? It’s not a coincidence when you are feeling great about yourself and certain in your choices that luck suddenly finds you skipping down the road and hands you a present.
You are less likely to find luck when you are depressed or unhappy with your life. Seems unfair seeing as that luck is needed most when you are at your worst. You could be smiling walking down the street looking at the flowers growing next to you when all of a sudden you get a shimmer of a lost ring or the glimpse of a $100 bill. When you are sad and depressed how could you see the ring in the fog of despair and with all those negative thoughts occupying your attention?
So, if you were to believe that luck happens when someone deserves it then you could also believe that the infliction of unluckiness is a result of deserving misfortune because of something you did or attracted. The reality isn’t that you deserved the misfortune but that the guilt of unlucky situations is a direct reflection of how you view yourself and your situation.
We could say you create your luck and the same can be said about your unlucky days as well. Luck in actuality is always available to you. It is dependent on you allowing luck to enter your vibration and accepting that you deserve it. It is seeing yourself as worthy of having good fortune. Worthiness is a hard thing to accept when you are in the throes of despair.
Just as happiness is a choice so, is luck. Luck should then be defined as a choice to allow the good fortune that is always flowing to me into my present moment. It is a blessing and a gift that you can manifest at any time when you are aligned with that emotion through certainty and least resistance. When you feel you are worthy and deserving of good fortunate and free of self inflicted guilt is when you are the most lucky.
We create our “now” and we attract what we feel we deserve. Try spending a day feeling luck is on your side, that you are 1st picked on luck’s team and say “Just my luck, I chose to deserve it”.
I like to start my day with a feeling of gratitude and of self. A great way to do this is by using meditation to clear your mind, connect to your true self and then going into a place of gratitude. By doing this you can see gratitude from a more emotional stand point then a physical one. Instead of being grateful for your home and car you can see gratitude for your ability to be happy or even grateful for your breath.
It is then much easier to take that gratitude for the smaller things and create desires that you would like to manifest which are more aligned with what you need rather than what you want.
To start this meditation I use meditation beads and go all the way around the strand to make sure I come up with enough I AM positive statements. If you don’t have the beads you can place your hands in a Buddha pose like the picture above. This hand mudra connects the thumbs (which represent the ego) back onto each other as to channel the self into an infinity loop. The left hand represents the feminine energy and the right hand the masculine energy. You can choose which hand to place on top of which depending on which energy you feel you need to channel more energy from.
To begin you can put on some meditation music or simply get in position and close your eyes. Take one deep breath in through the nose, hold it for a few seconds then expel all the air in your lungs. Do this a few times and then start a steady flow of breath in through the nose and out from the nose.
I start with some easy I AM positive statements:
I AM happy
I AM healthy
I AM well
You can then reach for other words to continue the sequence. If I find myself searching for words I will go down the alphabet like so:
I AM amazing, I AM beautiful, I AM certain, I AM divine…
When you have either finished going through the beads or the A-Z method you can then move onto the gratitude portion of this meditation. Like with the previous portion try and start with easy statements of gratitude:
I AM grateful for my ability to be happy
I AM grateful for my constant good health
I AM grateful for my breath
Go through as many as you can think of and keep that steady breath in and out of the nose as you make your statements of gratitude. Once you feel you are at a point of feeling good and having expressed your gratitude you can then start thinking of things you would like to manifest into your life.
Hopefully at this point you feel great about yourself, the energy of gratitude surrounds you and you can more clearly see your manifestations becoming a reality.
