The Life You Breathe Into the Words That You Speak

“As it is written, “I have made you the father of many nations”—in the presence of the God in whom he believed, who gives life to the dead and calls into existence the things that do not exist.”

~Romans 4:17

Words have a lot of power.  Not just the words that we write down, but also the words that we speak.  Not just to other people but the words that we tell ourselves.  I was watching an interview between Dr. Wayne Dyer and Oprah Winfrey on her Super Soul Sunday show the other morning and he was speaking about the Art of manifestation and placing into our imagination who it is that we are and not stressing who it is that we are not. 

That really hit me when he said that.  No really, I was actually still asleep when the interview was on and I could hear the T.V. in my state of being still half sleep and half awake, but when I heard him say that it woke me up.  I quickly sat up in my bed as I heard him talk about how people who constantly say I am depressed, I am sick, I am sad, I am broke, I am not good enough, are inadvertently breathing life into those words and those feelings.  I thought to myself, I am one of those people. 

Not because I ever wanted to be.  Just because I think I spend way too much time professing the circumstances that I am stuck in instead of approaching it in the manner of claiming the end result.  Something so simple as taking the phrase ‘I am broke’ out of your vocabulary, and claiming the prosperity that lies ahead of you and that is within your reach could change the journey for any one of us.  Instead of reminding ourselves of what it is that we don’t have, or the not so positive feelings that we might be feeling, we have to lay claim to what it is that we want to be true. 

It’s not that you should pretend that you are not depressed, rather that you can choose another thought to have.  You can make the choice not to put into your imagination something that you don’t want to materialize.  If I am feeling like I am just (as I felt all last week) not very much in the writing mood, and I breathe those words into life, then of course no writing is going to get done. 

I am going to work very hard to start practicing those words of wisdom from Mr. Wayne Dyer in regards to manifesting what I want in my life by speaking it and making it so.  I have to keep in mind that when God said that all things are possible through him, he didn’t mean some things and not others.  He meant exactly what he said, ALL.  I want to breathe life into much more positive ways of seeing things.

Visualizing You Are Already Where You Want To Be

“Attract what you want by assuming the feeling of the wish fulfilled.”

~Neville Goddard 

I was watching Dr. Wayne Dyer on PBS last night and his program, Wishes Fulfilled.  I got a lot out of the three hour motivational program (and dvr’d it so that I can go back and get more out of it later).  He said things that I in some ways already knew and realized but sometimes hearing them from someone else, from another perspective, changes the way you receive the information.  When his program opens he has a statement on the projector screen for the viewing audience that states “If you would like to accomplish something, you must first expect it of yourself.”  Makes sense right?  

I know that if you succumb to the negativity that builds up around you, you are going to eventually project that same negativity into every facet of your life.  This week is about me getting my fire back that I once had and somehow lost.  It’s also about getting back to that person who didn’t always let the negativity surrounding her overtake her.  It’s about getting rid of that mentality of being so fearful of everything that she never enjoys what good could be happening in the present moment. 

I thought that I would be in a certain place at this point of my life and because I’m not there yet I’m doubting every decision I make, every decision I don’t make, every opportunity that I take, and especially the ones that I don’t take.  People always say to go with your gut when making crucial life decisions, but lately I’ve realized that my gut instincts aren’t what they once were because of that damn fear.  It’s keeping me from seeing myself in the state that I want to be in and I know that if I don’t begin to see myself in that place, I might never get to that place.  

Dr. Wayne Dyer said that people who say that they will believe something when they see it have it all wrong.  He said that you will only see it when you believe it, and he’s right.  I mean after all, if you can’t believe in and see it for yourself then how is anyone else going to be able to see it?  

So instead of continuing to wish that I was more of a success, and agonizing over why I’m not, I need to act as if I am at the level of success that I want to be at.  I should imagine that I am already in that place where my company is not only up and running, but it’s going strong.  I can see it now!
