We all have certain beliefs, expectations, and patterns of thought about certain subjects that seem natural to us because we have practiced those thoughts for so long. The number one reason it’s hard to get out of a rut or create change is because we keep thinking the same thoughts about a given subject. Jolt yourself out of an energy rut by forcing your mind to view things from a different, more favorable perspective, and then try to hold that new perspective for as long as possible.
As they say, madness is doing the same thing and expecting different results. If you are wanting something to be different in your life, or just wanting to create some excitement, the change has to start with you. There are no boring lives, only boring people. So if you want a different result, take a different action, even a small one.
A lot of times when people want something or someone in their life to be different, they automatically start from a place of negativity and lack, undermining the change they hope to create. Thinking, “I hate my job, I wish I had a different one,” will manifest more experiences to reinforce that belief. A simple shift to, “I’m grateful for having a job and am in the process of creating an even better one,” can have a huge impact. The new statement vibrates with and attracts experiences of appreciation and hope rather than desperation.
Always act as if what you want is already on its way, that it’s part of your life already. What’s showing up in your life isn’t necessarily what you want. You’re getting a reflection of what you already believe about yourself and your world. A belief in lack creates more lack. Creating change from a place of appreciation and abundance is much more powerful.
All of your power is exactly in the Now. The past and future are literally figments of our imagination, tools for the mind to string experiences together. The Universe only understands now, now, now. Take advantage of the infinite potential each moment holds when it is unclouded by regrets from the past and worries about the future.
Remember, changing your energy in the current moment is literally shaping what you will attract down the road. So get happy now and make an investment in your future!
