It is simply amazing, that as a community of people, there are quite a few miserable people on this earth. How can this be, when we have so many venues to help us be happier and healthier in our lives? If you are glued to the TV for the latest sensationalism, you are going to get a big dose of it, but it probably won’t make your day brighter. Most TV stations are featuring negative and energy-draining broadcasts. You may know people who are constantly sharing their fears or negativity about life, their work or about relationships. We are conditioned by our culture, community, parents, teachers, mentors, and others who may share their concerns with you. Many probably mean well and don’t realize the impact they are imparting on others. In reality, they do their best with the experience and conditioning they have received in their lives. Don’t fret! We do have choices and can choose our thoughts and actions wisely.
First, pay attention to your inner guidance or your feelings. If you have a “gut” feeling that something is not right, don’t dismiss it as nonsense. We are all equipped with different “gifts” of intuition. Trust yourself and your intuition. For example if you have feelings of concern or you feel repelled towards someone, that could be an indication that you should be concerned about that person. They may be someone who will take advantage of you or may not be a good person to hang around. Don’t be afraid, just trust yourself on this one. Your feelings are valid and should not be discarded because you don’t want to hurt someone. You should always be respectful and decent to people, but you get to choose your friends and the people you want to be in your life that lift you up and keep you inspired.
Second, be mindful of the people, places and events in your life. If you are constantly hanging around negative people or watching TV shows that make you depressed, consider limiting your activities around them. While we cannot control everything in our lives, we have lots of control in our own homes and who we bring into our lives as friends. Everything on this planet is “energy”. We are energy too. Yes—created by our Creator. When you take in negativity, it can severely affect you and especially empathetic people. Every day, I have a practice of visualizing “white light” emanating from inside of me and spreading throughout my home, property, and to other locations which I believe need to have positivity and pureness. It really does work! Try it sometime. I have sent “white light” to places that are far away and later learned that they are feeling much better and the air seems “lighter”. White light will remove “darkness” if you set the intention of love and light. It will never harm anyone because it can only help with removing negativity and darkness. Sometimes you may be going through a hard time and need some “white light” in your life. You can start out with small issues and see that it works and then “go bigger”.
Third, there are times when you have created the “drama” in your life. Just know that you have the power to change it with your thoughts, intentions and your actions. You have “personal power” and were created and made in the image of our Divine Creator. No one has to be a “victim”. You have the right and the skills to conquer many things in your life. Stop blaming others or think they can control you! Once you do this—you will become “unstuck” and able to take charge of your life. Give yourself permission to let go of your “old stories” and make healthful life changes. You can rely on yourself to get things done and ask people who want to see you succeed, to hold you accountable for taking action. Just do it! Many people find prayer to be very powerful. It is part of my daily routine and I highly recommend praying for the things you need so you can become the person you want to be in your life. Prayer works.
If you need more “confidence” to move ahead and to make positive changes in your life, you may need a little help. I have created a complimentary “confidence” hypnosis/meditation audio that you can use daily to increase your confidence. Many clients that come to me have issues with confidence. Who couldn’t use a little more confidence in their life? All you have to do is email me at CoachwithDawn@gmail.com and request your complimentary audio. I know you will be glad that you did and I always love hearing your feedback on my blogs, services and products.
