Change Your Mind, Change Your Life

“Small shifts in your thinking, and small changes in your energy, can lead to massive alterations of your end result.” -Kevin Michel

Little Gems of Wisdom & Fun from Mary Lynn Ziemer

Research has proven that your brain filter goes in search of what you think, believe, and feel. Your mind then creates these things in your reality. How amazing is that! It means we are in charge of our life to create what our hearts truly desire.

In her book “How Emotions Are Made. Secret Life of the Brain,” acclaimed neuroscientist Lisa Barrett Feldman explains how we create our world this way:

That means in effect, that you construct the environment in which you live. You might think about your environment as existing in the 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.

And here’s another very important takeaway from her book. “Our emotions are not automatic, but rather can be practiced and programmed to result in new behavior. Ultimately, the bodily experience influences a subsequent emotion and action, thereby creating a self-fulfilling prophecy, i.e. what you believe, you create within the brain.”

Sometimes we think that things are happening to us because of our previous experiences. We think that those experiences have imprinted themselves on us and shaped us into who we are now.

However, the very best news I can share with you is that your past has absolutely nothing to do with your future. It is not about what has happened to you before, but what it is that you are feeling right now, at this very moment, that is most important for you to create the life you want. What you feel presently shapes your future. How you see your situation now, and how you feel about it, creates your life. Remember, NOW is the place from which you create your reality. As Albert Einstein says, “The present is the only time that exists.” So, it’s only logical that it’s the only time that matters as we look to create a life of joy!

So, create a new story to think and speak about that feels good to you, always. Find something to be grateful for in this moment, in the situation you are faced with. Then KNOW that you hold the power within to move forward. When you do this, you will feel better immediately and begin creating more of what you want.

No matter what it is, learn to stay focused on what you want the outcome to be now. Feel really good and begin to imagine what you want. Feed your brain what you desire, as you imagine your desired ending to whatever situation you’re faced with. Then, instead of getting hooked into the current reality that is presenting itself, you will see a different result. This takes strong focus on the picture that represents your new story and, minimally, it takes a great foundation of feeling love and gratitude consistently. You must feel lots of love and gratitude for what the blessing is now, and in advance, knowing that it is possible. This allows you to believe and ultimately know that it’s already done as you stay patient and consistent in your heart and mind!

Take these steps to get started:

1. Let go of the past as it relates to your views, opinions, and perceptions about how people are, or situations that show up in your life that you would like to change.

2. Change your mind. Create a new, very specific story that feels really good. Live from a calm mindset.

3. This is the key: Know your power and put all of your focus on it. You are the author of your own fill the pages with whatever you desire! Even if you have evidence of a past behavior in someone you don't like (or in yourself) ... it's time to move forward.

Be committed to letting go of the past and bring more joyful thoughts of love and gratitude into the present moment. Think of things that make you feel good about a person or situation. Try to find humor in the circumstances or tell a joke. Even though a situation might feel extreme, have a good laugh at yourself if you can. Every situation can be changed with a little creativity! You’ll know you are living your power when you feel there is nothing to let go of anymore. You simply and naturally know to move forward in love as you focus on what you want to create next.

Remember, creating our reality starts with feeling good. So, create your next experience by feeling lots of love. How? We need to treat ourselves and others in a completely new, loving way. You need to become the kindest and the most loving person to yourself, and you need to extend that same treatment to everyone and everything else around you.

Then, you will change your mind and your mindset to one of calm. With this new, powerful mind, you will begin to see the magic happen right in front of you!

Have an absolutely magical week full of love, gratitude, and fun, fun, FUN!
