How many of your daily conversations begin like this…
“I wish I was…”
All of the above statements have the energy of lack attached to them. When we think about lack, what we do is welcome more lack into our lives. Like energy, attracts like energy. Remember what we think about, we bring about and what we focus on expands. Many people are living defeated lives because they have defeated thoughts, which turn into defeated communication and conversations.
There’s a passage of scripture that encourages us to “Speak those things that BE NOT as though THEY WERE.” Which essentially means that something that is not present, can appear there when we say it with our tongue. Another one of my favorites is “Faith is the SUBSTANCE of things HOPED FOR, the EVIDENCE of things unseen.” Substance is something tangible, it exists, and evidence is something that is real and can be proven. Oh and we cannot forget this one “The POWER of LIFE and death lies in the TONGUE.” With that little tongue in your mouth, you have the power to create life or death in your day to day reality, or like I say you can create heaven on earth or hell on earth. Whether you live in heaven on earth or hell on earth, it is important that you understand that it is by your own creation.
There has been a major shift in consciousness that has taken place over the last decade and many people are becoming more introspective than they were in the past…Introspective from a place of trying to figure out, or understand, WHAT is taking place within their lives and within themselves. A great place to be!!! When we truly realize that the only being we have control over is ourselves then, we give ourselves the opportunity to shift from being so concerned about everything outside of us, and putting our focus on where the real issues lie… WITHIN! It gives us the opportunity to walk in our own power, instead of giving our power away to others.
You know we can only give to others, that which we are able to give to ourselves. When I was raising my children as a single mother, I realized that if I didn’t give myself what I needed and wanted, then I could not effectively give my children what they needed and wanted. My philosophy was this…. “My children’s NEEDS would always come before my wants, but their wants would not come before mine.” In other words, if I really wanted something and my children wanted something, I took the position that I would not deprive myself of what I wanted to give them what they wanted constantly. Because what I would have been doing would have been saying yes to them, but saying no to myself. I made a decision to be conscious of making sure that when I said yes to others I did not say no to myself.
This required my being willing to introspect deep within myself. I had to begin analyzing my thoughts, my desires and my communication, which enabled me to start living my life and thinking my thoughts from a place of consciousness. Being a conscious thinker, has afforded me the opportunity to determine when my thoughts are not in alignment with what I desire to create for myself, and change those thoughts quickly!
You see I figured it like this, if I am created in the image and LIKENESS of God, what that means for me is that as God creates, I can create also. Jesus told us this when he said that not only would we do what He did, but greater things we would do, because we would have the Power of the Holy Spirit within. So then if I can create as God creates, I figured that I better make sure that I am always aware of what I am thinking and speaking. Remember, everything that is and was created started out as a thought, and then through the spoken word, the thing came to life or manifestation.
So what are you creating by the thoughts you think and the words you say? Are you creating your own hell on earth? Are you the one responsible for screwing up your own life by the thoughts you think and the words you say? Guess what… if your life is screwed up, then you are the one who is creating that. But the good news is this… YOU CAN CHANGE YOUR STINKIN’ THINKIN!
