What are you masking?
Are you wearing a mask to hide your sadness or identity? Isn’t it time you removed the facade to let your light shine through? Like the great pumpkin, you must cut away the layers of waxed skin to create a brightly-lit jack-o-lantern.
But let’s not forget that autumn is more than a time for trick-or-treating; in fact, it’s the perfect occasion to harvest the abundance that awaits you if you’re willing to realize and reach your highest potential.
I can’t do it!
How many times have you thought that you just can’t go any further? How many times have you questioned your own abilities to create happiness and prosperity in your life? How often have you asked yourself, “Why should I even try?” If you’ve asked yourself any of the aforementioned questions, then it’s time to unveil your authentic self and empower yourself so you can rise above life’s circumstances to initiate real forward motion.
Here are a few tips to start your inner-healing process:
1. Stop beating yourself up. When you begin to over-criticize yourself, you plant negative seeds in your mind. It’s time to heal your mind, heal your body. Once these seeds take sprout, the roots of pessimism begin to implant themselves in every cell of your body, mind, and spirit; this type of negative thinking results in stress, anxiety, and even physical illness.
2. Replace negative thought patterns. Reinvent the way you think. Instead of focusing on everything that went wrong, I want you to concentrate on everything that can go right. Don’t say, “I can’t.” Instead, say aloud to yourself, “I can and I will!” When life begins to get you down, throw a boomerang of happiness. When you project happiness, it comes back to you. That is how you will begin to heal your mind, heal your body.
3. Visualize your success. I can’t stress this enough. In order to start creating prosperity in your life so you can and will reach your highest potential, you must imagine the success that you can achieve. Figuratively speaking, you need to get down to the nitty-gritty details of what it is you want so you can embrace it fully. If you’re unhappy with your mundane career and are interested in pursuing a more exciting one; for example, in seeking a rewarding position as a firefighter or teacher or even an entrepreneur, the first thing you need to do is imagine yourself in uniform or in that position. If it is the firefighter, imagine yourself dressed in yellow. Visualize the red fire truck, and you’re driving it to the fire scene. Whatever the career of your dreams is, you have to taste it, feel it, see it, and focus on it – every single day until you get it. In doing so, your intention transforms into action. Action results in the outcome you want and you are actually empowering yourself to reach your highest potential.
That same methodology works well with anything you are presently seeking. Doesn’t matter if it’s a job, being at home, in a relationship, your health, wealth or prestige…whatever it is that your heart desires can become a reality when you remove the mask and start listening to your intuition and redefining your future.
