Change your Words, Change your Life

Change your Words, Change your Life

Change your Words, Change your Life

Have you ever realised how can your words shape your life, your present and your future? Really, how you communicate with yourself and others matters the most. Why some movies are a huge hit as compared to others, even two stories with a different set of dialogues have an altogether different impact on people. The way words are put up plays a very significant role. Often you may notice you are speaking limiting beliefs or sentences which are against the view of attracting love, happiness, joy and abundance. Even the Universal statements contribute to it largely. For example, sentences like mother in laws can never be mothers to their son’s wives or only money can multiply money.

This kind of limiting sentences can be having a huge impact on your life. Words create vibrations and these vibrations in turn go out in the Universe and manifest your reality. Consciously or unconsciously you may not be aware of this process. Hence, it is necessary to watch our words carefully. Even the way you speak to yourself is very important. How you think in your mind is important too. For this you need to start speaking good words to yourself. A simple way to first discover which way you communicate is to put down all your thoughts everyday in a book. Read it and you will understand how you communicate.

We can either create a happy, joyful present for ourselves by speaking the right words, or we can upset ourselves constantly by speaking about the problems and issues we have again and again. The choice is in our hands. When we understand the power of words and watch our words, we can lead to a whole new transformation of our life. Our words are not forced upon us, they formulate in our thoughts. Hence, the first step of identification is to watch the kind of thoughts you’re speaking. We can learn to choose our thoughts, to resist wrong ones and think on good, healthy, and right ones.

Anyone who wants to be healthy is careful to choose quality food that will provide good nutrition. If we want to be healthy in our soul and spirit, we should also choose to take in words that will build us up and increase our peace and joy. The world is filled with bad news. Turn on any news station or buy any newspaper or news magazine and you will find it filled with reports of murder, theft, wars, famine, and all kinds of horribly tragic events. Even though all this is a reality, we still have a choice. Either we can just read it and leave it there or we can adopt this into our consciousness and be a part of the mass consciousness who thinks world is no longer a safe place to be.

From today, from this moment, affirm that you choose to think healthy, talk healthy and watch healthy things around you. The first thing in the morning shouldn’t be reading a newspaper, rather a healthy conversation with a loved one or even with you. This will boost your mind to think happy and be joyful. Avoid back biting about anyone, or even feeling sad for something that isn’t a part of you. Now is the moment to once again fall in love with this Universe and fill your life with abundance, joy and happiness.

You are Valuable Indeed!

You are Valuable Indeed!

The more you learn to value your true self, the better able you’ll be to make choices that support your emotional well-being. That doesn’t mean it will always be easy, especially when obstacles get in the way (and they will!). Emotional well-being opens doors for divine connection and feeling of living a contented life. Here are five strategies that can help you stay on the path of good self-care.

Trust Your Intuition
Your intuition is your inner intelligence, a voice that guides you in the right direction—even when logic would lead you elsewhere. Thus, in order to access your intuition, you must be connected with your self. You must be able to trust that you have access to the answers you need for your life. If you don’t have a sense of peace about a decision, don’t feel compelled to move forward. Inner turmoil is often a message to be still or move in a different direction. Gather the information you need to make intelligent choices for your life, but accept your intuition as an important source of guidance, too. Faith in your intuition will create miracles in life and you’ll see your choices are more wiser than before.

Listen to Your Emotions Selectively
Emotions are real, and they offer important messages. They are not necessarily the truth, though, and for this reason, it’s not wise to make decisions based on them. Emotions are based in the moment, ever-changing, influenced by insecurities, and often illogical. You can, however, use your emotions as a guide to teach you more about yourself.

If you are angry or irritated on a regular basis, explore the reasons why and think about ways to resolve the issue. If you are feeling overwhelmed, read that as a sign that you may be trying to do too much too fast or without enough support, and adjust accordingly. Anytime you feel a strong emotion, negative or positive, take time to ask, “What is this emotion trying to tell me?” Then allow yourself time to come down from your emotional “high” (yes, even a negative emotion is a kind of “high”) before acting on it.

Solve Your Problems Honestly
Some people spend more time focusing on a problem than they ever spend trying to solve it. Make a decision to look at every problem or challenge as being solvable—or not. If it is a solvable problem, then focus on the solution. If the problem isn’t solvable, then let the problem go. In this way, you’ll be able to focus more of your time and energy on the people and things that matter most to you. Rather than becoming seduced by drama and sucked into worry, you’ll be taking responsibility for solving problems and creating a healthy life.

Face Your Fear
Many people never consider the possibility that they could actually have the life they dream of because they are afraid. Fear stops them from moving forward because they don’t want to take risks that will result in failure, rejection, or regret. The truth is that every choice has its share of risk. Whatever it is that you fear, ask yourself, “How can I reduce my anxiety or fear of failure in this situation?” Brainstorm with others; open your mind to options you may not previously have considered. Then stop asking, “What if I fail? What if I don’t have what it takes?” and start asking, “What do I have to do to ensure my success?”

Ask For Help
To create and preserve good emotional health, establish limits for what you can do alone. Honor your own humanity by admitting when you need help. Whether it is as simple as teaching your children to help with household chores or standing up for yourself when your spouse owes child support, expect those around you who benefit from your efforts to also help lighten your load. Ask for help and expect to receive it—from someone who can actually provide it. Honor yourself by admitting when you need a break, and then arrange for one. Schedule a real vacation once a year. You don’t have to go far or spend much—just give yourself a few days to lay your burden down.

The Power of Thoughts

The Power of Thoughts

One day, a yogi and his disciple arrived in the big city. They had no money with them, but they needed food and a place to stay. The disciple was sure that they were going to beg for their food, and sleep in the park at night.

“There is a big park not far from here. We can sleep there at night”, said the disciple.

“In the open air?” Asked the yogi.

“Yes”, responded the student.

The yogi smiled and said: “No, tonight we are going to sleep in a hotel and eat there too”.

The student was amazed and exclaimed, “We cannot afford that!”

“Come and sit down”, said the yogi.

They both sat down on the ground, and the yogi said:

“When you focus your mind intently on any subject, it comes to pass.”

The yogi closed his eyes and started to meditate with full concentration. After about ten minutes he got up and started to walk, with his disciple following him. They walked through several streets and alleys, until they arrived at a hotel.

“Come, let’s enter inside”, the yogi said to his disciple.

They just set foot in the entrance, when a well-dressed man approached them.

“I am the manager of this hotel. You look like traveling swamis, and I believe you have no money. Would you like to work in the kitchen, and in return I’ll give you food and a place to stay?”

“Fine”, the yogi responded.

The disciple was perplexed and asked the yogi: “Did you use any magic? How did you do that?”

The yogi smiled and said, “I wanted to show you how the power of thoughts works. When you think with full and strong concentration about something that you want to happen, and your mind does not resist the subject of your thought, your thought materializes.”

“The secret is concentrating, visualizing, seeing details, having faith and projecting mental and emotional energy into the mental scene. These are the general prerequisites. When your mind is empty from thoughts, and only one single thought is allowed to enter, it gains a very great power. One should be very careful with what he thinks. A concentrated thought is powerful, and exerts a very strong influence.”

The disciple looked at his teacher and said: “I see that I have to sharpen my concentration in order to be able to use this power.”

“Yes, this is the first step”, the yogi replied.

Who or what creates your world?

Who or what creates your world?

Did you know that your subconscious mind has already made a decision before you even know about it? Then your conscious mind justifies the decision that has already been made by your subconscious.

So when you ‘feel’ something is right or wrong that feeling is your subconscious mind which has already decided on the issue; then your conscious mind steps in and creates meaning about that decision.

Say for instance: you instinctively ‘feel ‘you should not walk along a certain street, the feeling lets you know that your subconscious mind which sees, hears and feels at a far deeper level than our conscious mind, has already decided it is not safe for you for whatever reason. Then your conscious mind will look around and justify it by saying’ it is too dark’, too lonely,’ ‘too busy’, ‘too long’,’ too something’ so that it can justify what has already been decided.

That is why it is so important that you understand clearly what is in your subconscious mind – after all , it is creating your world as you know it.
