There has been a lot of talk on the news lately about multi-million dollar lotteries. Don't fall into the "belief" that once you have your million dollars you will finally be happy or accomplished or...whatever. This mindset is backwards. Use positive affirmations to declare you are already these things and the Universe will ensure you have what you need.
But, what do you really need? What is it you think you want? Most people cannot answer this specifically. Ralph Marston wrote:
"If you really want it, you will have it. If it means enough to you, it will happen.
For if you really want it, you will find a way. You'll stop making excuses and start making it real.
The obstacles you encounter are not there to prevent you from reaching your goal.
The obstacles are there to make sure you really want it.
When you really want it, you'll find a way around, under, above or through each one of those obstacles.
And as you do, you'll be literally creating the value of what you intend to achieve.
When you really want it enough, it is in many ways already yours.
Full and complete attainment then becomes a matter of going through the motions and following a path that leads surely there.
Decide what you really want, and be careful what you decide upon. For when you truly want it, you will make it so."
I love the lines that state obstacles aren't there to stop you from reaching your goals, rather, they exist to make sure you really want your goals.
The upcoming holidays are a good time to practice positive affirmations. If you find yourself getting crazy and stressed, and you really want peace, claim it in an intention! State, "I am peaceful." "I intend to have a peaceful day."
If you feel like you are running out of time, state, "I have all the time I need to get done what needs to be done." Keep in mind, the Universe might not feel that everything on your list needs to be done. The food needs to be prepared; the Martha Stewart centerpiece does not need to be done.
Alan Cohen writes, "To succeed in life, you must embody a sort of "reverse paranoia." Paranoia traditionally means that you believe that life is out to hurt you. Reverse paranoia means that life is out to help you."
So, reverse your mindset. "I have what I need." "I am happy, peaceful, calm, love, etc." "This will be a great day." State what you want and need as if it is already yours. The Universe will do the rest.
