You have been creating your reality since you were born, but you might have just forgotten it. You might have started believing what others said when they told you were wrong or you couldn’t. You forgot to listen to yourself and what you wanted.
Your thoughts help create your reality. Have you ever woken up in a bad mood? Have you noticed that it seems like everything goes wrong? It seems like it is all downhill from there, right? Or maybe you get up in the morning and you are feeling great! Life is good and everything is going your way.
You are creating your reality by either staying mad and creating chaos or staying happy and creating harmony. You are the creator of your own future and there are two ways to go about it: consciously or unconsciously.
I have a client that had a slight tremor in his hand and the doctor told him he had uncontrollable tremors but it could be controlled with medication. But he was convinced that the doctor was keeping the worst news from him so he went home and started to do research and convinced himself he had Parkinson’s. He now sits around convincing himself it is getting worse, and soon he won’t be able to work, that he has maybe 10 good years left before he can no longer function. I have watched him go from having a small tremor in his hand to watching his whole body tremble six months’ time. He won’t listen to anything positive and just says nobody knows what they are talking about including the doctor. He has created a reality that he somehow feels okay with.
On the opposite end of the spectrum, my daughter decided to move to Seattle from Northern Arizona just after college and I have never seen anything so remarkable and fun to watch. She had never even been to Seattle before, but she started doing research, telling people she was moving, and visualizing what it would be like to live there. Two weeks before she planned to leave, she still hadn’t saved as much money as she wanted, she still didn’t have a job, and she had no place to live, but that didn’t stop her. She just knew that everything was going to work out. Three days before she left, a close friend of mine wrote her a check, giving her just enough to move. She rented a moving van and she and her best friend drove to Seattle with no specific destination in mind. They parked the truck, rented a car, and miraculously found her an apartment on Labor Day weekend. She had unpacked and moved in within six hours of finding her new home and received a job offer the next day.
See? Your thoughts are your creation.
It is amazing what you can create when you are consciously aware of your thoughts and your visualizations. But it takes insight, patience, constant attention, and daydreaming; you have to believe in what you want.
You’ve got to visualize, see yourself doing what you want to do, feel it, fantasize about it, and make it as real as you can.
I recommend two good books on this subject if you are interested and want to get started: Ask and It Is Given by Esther and Jerry Hicks and The Secret by Rhonda Byrne.
So basically what I am saying is, go for it!
