"You are very powerful, provided you know how powerful you are." ~Yogi Bhajan
Little Gems of Wisdom & Fun from Mary Lynn Ziemer
We all possess a very special gift, it's a "super-power" really. And when you learn to use this power, you can create your best life ever. You can create this every single day. It all starts with the right mindset.
It is extremely important that we understand, as human beings, we work purely on emotions. Dr. Jill Bolte-Taylor, a Harvard trained neuro-anatomist, says this:
“We are feeling beings who think. All of our thoughts have emotions attached to them. And we have the higher cognitive ability as the most evolved form of life to always come back to the present moment.”
This is our gift! In order for us to create a life that we truly love, we must understand the power of our emotions. We must feel them in the only moment that matters, the present moment. This is where we create everything from! We must understand the true power of returning to feelings of love.
In order to live our life in the flow of these magnificent feelings (love, joy, gratitude, and fun) we need to see things differently. To have the best day of our life everyday, we need to realize that the world we live in works in an entirely different way than we likely realize. Not only different, but the opposite of what we’ve learned previously. What do I mean by this? It’s important to know that we literally create it.
In her book How Emotions are Made, Secret Life of the Brain (2017), acclaimed Neuroscientist Lisa Feldman Barrett writes:
"That means, in effect, that you construct the environment in which you live. You might think about your environment as existing as an outside world, separate from yourself, but that’s a myth. You (and other creatures) do not simply find yourself in an environment and either adapt or die. You construct your environment – your reality – by virtue of what sensory input from the physical environment your brain selects; it admits some as information and ignores some as noise."
The world that we each experience depends completely on us, and we are more powerful than we can fathom! We have the power to create amazing things based on what we feed our mind. You are more powerful that you can imagine in your wildest dreams! Whatever we think our power is, we are imagining only the tip of the iceberg. Truly realizing how powerful we are changes us forever. As you get the hang of it, this new perspective makes things so much more simple to understand. And the fascinating thing is that we all have this ability. It is all about the simplicity of love.
Feel more love and think less! Try these 3 steps each day:
Step 1: Feel love. In the very first moment you wake up in the morning, feel love for yourself and everything around you. You need to know that you are worthy of the perfect outcome of your plan for a wonderful day. You also need to remind yourself that you are special, brilliant and magnificent. You have been created for greatness. You have been created to live your truth in your own unique and wonderful way. These feelings of greatness will then take root. Remember, you must feel lots of love for yourself before you can give it freely and enthusiastically to others.
Step 2: Feel gratitude. Next, feel lots of gratitude for all the incredible people and things in your life. The key is to feel it as intensely as you can. The more love and gratitude you feel, the easier it is to create what you want.
Step 3: Imagine. The next step requires the use of your fantastic imagination. You need to have a picture in your mind of what it is that you want. In other words, script the perfect outcome. Throughout your day, picture in your mind how you would like this moment to be. If you are waiting on that job offer, picture that offer exactly as you want it. Feel sooo good about it. If you have a meeting with a potential client, see in your mind that this person already is your client. Picture it as a done deal. This way you are scripting your day from the moment you wake up until you go to sleep at night. Script the behavior of your boss, drivers on the road, your children etc. When you keep scripting all day long, while feeling lots of love and gratitude, your day is going to be the best day ever.
Remember, it is not where you are in any situation in front of you, but how you feel, the mindset that you have, that is going to shape your outcome that you want to create at that very moment. So know that you have the power to stay the course... you just have to acknowledge it and know it. As you progress, pat yourself on the back over and over again for even the smallest things as you achieve them and be grateful. Reinforce the power that you have been given, as you see the results you are getting. Then, you will feel the calmness of your power and the clarity that comes with it. This will allow you to see the perfect outcome again and again.
Now, close your eyes and enjoy how good it feels to have what you want! You are on your way to reaching your plan and creating the magical life of intense joy and wonder that you have envisioned.
Have an absolutely magical week full of love, gratitude and fun, fun, fun!
