“Hello. How are you today? I hope well. Did you happen to read my post yesterday? If not I would like you to go read it. If you have please read it again. The reason for this is that it speaks volumes to most of the issues people have. People have difficulty managing their self-talk and their talk with others.
Everything one says after ‘I am’, or ‘I have’ is a declaration. You are declaring how things are or how they will be. For example, how much energy do you feel when you say, ‘I am exhausted.’? Probably, not much, right? You aren’t going to feel raring to get up and go as you make that statement.
Whatever Follows I Am And I Have Is What You Get
While it may be a point of fact. You feel tired. Emphasizing it, doesn’t make you feel any better. Declaring it doesn’t make it go away. You may think you are simply announcing it but you are confirming it. Yes, that may have its use but it does much more. It keeps you where you are. You affirmed you are exhausted.
It engages your mental pictures and your imagination. It engages your feelings and reinforces them. Everything works together to keep you exhausted. You paint a picture of you being tired. Do you think your subconscious mind means only for this instant? What if it took it to mean in general, or all the time? Hmmmm.
Do you think I am being overly cautious? Perhaps, but why not just say, ‘I am going to get some wonderful rest and wake up refreshed.’ Why not say what we prefer or what we want or intend to happen. Create what we want instead of what we don’t want. Why not? I think learning how to think and speak what we want is important.
What You Say Is What You Get
I have quoted in these pages, ‘Speak only to bless, heal and prosper’. I don’t know who the author of the original quote is or if there is one. I use this statement a lot as a reminder. State only what you intend. Conceive of only what you intend to make or have happen in the present and future.
What if, instead of, ‘I am exhausted’ you stated, ‘I am broke.’? What if you thought in pictures, sounds and feelings, ‘I am never going to be able to make ends meet.’? What if these mental movies accompanied by feelings were literal commands to your subconscious mind? IS this what you want to command it to do?
Napoleon Hill stated, ‘Whatever you can conceive and believe you can achieve.’ This is true and it is a good thing and typically meant to demonstrate the positive power of human thought to create results. What if it is also true about the negative? Whatever you conceive you can achieve.
What You See Is What You Get
I’d want to be a lot more careful what I think, wouldn’t you? I’d ONLY want to conceive of that which does bless, heal and prosper my self and others. Wouldn’t you?It is,of course, absolutely true about both the positive and the negative! So let’s pretend something. Let’s pretend I am being cautious because I may be.
Wouldn’t you prefer to err on the side of caution and only state what you intend to create for yourself? Wouldn’t you prefer to aim your mind, you beliefs, your words, feelings and actions at what you want to make happen for yourself instead of what you don’t want. Even, just in case? It’s better to be safe than sorry, right?
The point is you can’t think two thoughts at the same time. You cannot think a negative thought and a positive thought simultaneously. You will think one and then perhaps the other. Perhaps, not the other right away since birds of a feather flock together. It is more likely you think one way for a time being.
What You Feel Is What You Get
Wouldn’t you prefer to think and feel the best you could? Why even take a chance at feeling crappy? Think, picture, visualize what you want and intend! Speak and only speak what you want and intend! Feel only what you want to feel and intend! Then what you conceive of has the good chance of coming to be even quicker.
If you think negative and then positive and then negative and then… that is a formula for staying stuck. If you think, ‘I am sick of this’ it is a great way of affirming more of what you don’t want. You are commanding your subconscious mind to give you more of WHAT?
Do you think you are commanding better health? What did you just think, declare, assert and affirm? Seriously, what if what you think and say has a greater affect or effect on you than you could ever imagine? What then? What if there are literal consequences to how and what we think?
Repetition Is The Mother Of Habit
AND especially how and what we think repeatedly and for how long and how often? Do you think it is even useful to think or speak like that? The bottom line is to stop speaking and talking about things you don’t want in life. Stop reinforcing grievances and issues. Stop carrying around the crappy things that happen during the day.
Stop sharing them with others. LET THEM GO! Drop them for good. Shit happened so what? Move on! Get over it and get on with creating what you want instead. Don’t declare, don’t assert, don’t re-live repeatedly anything you do not want to have more of. ONLY declare, assert and re-live repeatedly that which you DO want more of.
You are a powerful creator! You may not even realize it fully, yet. BUT YOU ARE! YOU ARE A POWERFUL CREATOR! When you fully realize that everything you have or don’t have, is and has always been up to you, is when you will come into your power, your true power. Your full power!
Taking Responsibility Is You True Power
In that instant, when you take total acceptance of responsibility you will discover an entire new world open up to you. You will then decide to only conceive and believe and achieve what you intend to have in your life. You will begin to create an entire new positive and wonderful life.
You will stop engaging in activities that waste your time and zap your energy. You will stop creating more crap and start creating and accepting and having more positive wonderful moments. Life IS wonderful! We are so much more powerful than we have ever been taught to realize.
We put all the power outside of ourselves. We put it onto others and circumstances and think, ‘it’s not my fault’. It would be far more practical and beneficial to accept responsibility for it AND change it than to lay blame and accept it as a victim. Things will change when you do.
To Know And Not To Do Is Not To Know
Why do I say this is a little known secret? Because to know it and not do it is to not know it. If you know it and don’t implement it you never fully understood it. If you haven’t used it you can’t know its power! You only know about it. You can read of a far off country and know about it but never having visited there means you don’t actually know that country. To know and not to do is to not know.
If we want to ensure things remain the same then we remain the same. If you want to ensure life is more wonderful than you can even presently imagine then claim your power. Begin living from your power. Stop creating the crap and start creating the gold. Stop talking crap and start talking blessings. You can do it. We all can. Life is grand when we make it that way. Do it today!” Rex Sikes
