Give yourself a fresh start!

have an open mind graphicIsn't it time to let go of the past and start over again? I have been observing how many people are taking a chance and making changes in their lives that most likely will bring forth greater meaning and purpose for them. We all deserve a fresh start in life and that fresh start begins with you and your beliefs.

"When you change what you believe, you change what you do." That change can only be realized when you are open and ready to accept the truth that what you have been doing up to this point has not brought you the joy or blessings that you have been seeking. So what do you have to lose? In actuality, nothing! Because let's face it, you had nothing already, so any positive change that you make will only move you farther up the ladder towards your goals.

I have discovered in my life that when I was unhappy and felt as thought my lifewasn'tworking; I would spend time in meditation with God and his Angels. After all that is the ultimate in wisdom and power so why not utilize their services and go directly to the source? So how did I begin the process? I would like to share with you some of my personal tips:

1. I maintained an unfailing focus on what I was hoping to accomplish or receive. For example, all through my day, I am continually seeing what I want in my minds eye, I am visualizing and imaging what is needed for me to accomplish my goal. Those creative thoughts are with me 24/7 and even while I sleep.

2. Never lose site of the value of exercise. I walk in nature daily. Exercise feeds my soul and enhances my creative mind and talents. That is when I feel like an open vessel to receive powerful messages.

3. Write in a journal or notebook often. Through the power of putting your thoughts on paper and expressing yourself, you actually benefit from revealing your emotions which in turn opens you up to heal from past experiences that have challenged you and stopped or dampened your growth. I have found that when I re-read my notes, I see my self and my thoughts in a new way and from a different vantage point. It can be very revealing.

4. Express Gratitude often. I am always conscious of all the blessings that I have received in my life and I continually say "Thank You" to God and my angel friends for their support, encouragement and messages of joyful possibilities that are being presented to me.

If and when you are willing to give yourself a fresh start, I believe you will empower yourself to think outside the box and open up new avenues for more sunlight to come into your life. Change is good. It is something like when you make plans for a road trip. You get out the maps, examine the different route or possibilities that will allow you to either get to your destination quicker or take the scenic route with many enjoyable side trips along the way. Options are wonderful when looked at with an open heart and mind so that you are prepared for what ever the outcome might be.

Isn't it time to get your joy back into your life and get enthusiastic about what each day brings? Don't walk away from your passion but embrace it, take a chance and make a fresh start for you and your life.
