Leave the mirror and change your face. Leave the world alone and change your conceptions of yourself. ~ Neville Goddard
You have the Power to Change What You See
Ignore what you see in the mirror and create the person you want to be in your mind. Ignore the world, and use your imagination to create the world you want to live in, and watch that new truth manifest right before your eyes.
Neville Goddard’s brilliant insights into the power of imagination changed my life. He teaches the concept of changing the way you think and therefore, changing your life using the power of active visualization (your imagination). One of my favorite Self-Help Tools, visualization is one of those mind tools that people never really explain properly.
What are Affirmations?
Affirmations are a mental programming technique that uses a positive word or sentence to help you reprogram your dominant thoughts, take control of your thoughts, plan your life, and manifest your desires. Affirmations can also serve as substitute dialog to help you transform your current self-limiting beliefs into productive self-empowering beliefs.
An effective affirmation is a positive statement crafted in present tense, stating a personal desire or prayer that evokes a positive emotional reaction in you. This statement is a command from your conscious mind to your subconscious mind programing the mind with new data and informing it of the changes you desire. Those changes can range from your goals and aspirations to thoughts that calm you down or give you courage in your time of need.
Affirmations work by your consciously filling your mind with thoughts that support your goals.
“I am a New York Time Bestselling Author.”
“Be still and know that I am God.”
“I am healthy, happy, loved and grateful.”
Effective affirmations are one of most powerful self-help tools using them will open up a world of opportunities for you and help you take control of your life.
Your Thoughts Create Your Life
When you think of affirmations remember: Your thoughts create your life.” This is a Universal Law. You just have to keep in mind that if your thoughts create your life, then you must control those thoughts. Take time to reflect on what you are thinking about, and when and where you got those thoughts from and start working on a new soundtrack. Take a look around you, how have your thoughts served you? What kind of life have you created for yourself? (more…)
Is “Worry Weight” Really What is Making you Fat? You are like, eh! What is worry weight?
Have you ever had that weekend where you thought you had just about eaten everything under the sun, and you were going to suffer the wrath of the Weight Guru (actual name of my scale) come Monday morning? Would that mindless munching and drinking that you did as you binge watched anything on Netflix eventually come home to roost on your thighs… and so on and so forth.
As you have now spent the entire weekend worrying about your weight, you step on the scale on Monday and voila! You’ve gained weight.
After you are done beating yourself up for a weekend eating cauliflower rice, shrimp, lentil chips, kale chips and several 20 ounce cups of water (not wine, juice or soda), you take another look at exactly what you ate. You realized you were barely clocking 1,400 calories a day, (with exercise) and then it dawns on you that you gained weight simply because you were worrying about gaining weight.
The fear and guilt you were feeling had gone ahead and created an extra pound or two where you should, according to the reality of what you ate, and the exercise that you did, have lost at least a half a pound.
Do you know some people go for years worrying their way into a size 18 and staying there? Most times it is not a result of what they actually ate, that is the power of the mind.

Using the Abraham-Hicks Emotional Guidance Scale
The Abraham-Hicks Emotional Guidance Scale lists a spectrum of emotion from positive
(Joy / Appreciation / Empowered / Freedom / Love( #1)) to super negative (Fear / Depression / Despair / Powerlessness (#22)).
The Emotional Guidance Scale is based on the principle that your emotions are vibrational indicators of your alignment to Source (God). The better you feel, the closer you are in aliment to God. The worse you feel is the indicator that you need to move your behind and do someone to feel better now.
Your emotional vibrations also put you on the frequency you need to manifest the things that you want. Also, I have to let you know that negative emotions also manifest things, so on both ends of the scale, you are manifesting.
Your goal is to keep yourself hovering around emotion 1 to 5 on the scale.
You know the saying, “your now creates your future?” It pretty much means that if you choose to feel like crap now, you are guiding your beautiful boat into miserable waters. If you choose to feel good now, you are guiding your boat to the land of sunshine and lollipops. I always ask myself, “Which one do you want?” That usually snaps me out of my melancholy and helps me pull up myself up the scale.
