It is a given that
"reality" - my reality - your reality - is not necessarily the
same and we may differ greatly on many issues. The reasons for this
are varied . . . background, perception, experiences, gender, education,
etc. This is basic mainstream rhetoric and not very interesting.
Most of us accept these reasons to explain away our life situation and
all the frustrations,
disappointments, challenges, and bad luck when we are pondering
why? Why is he in a better spot than me?" "Why is
she so pretty and slim? "Why is my life so
hard?" Why? Why? Why?
Has it ever occurred
to you that maybe we dream (imagine) our own existence and lifestyles
and that these dreams then become our reality. Wouldn't it be
unbelievably wonderful if success and happiness were contingent on how creative we
were in conjuring up some fantastic experiences and perks for ourselves? This is
not a brand new idea or concept. I have often heard the
statement: "Life is but a dream." Well,
is. Or should I say - "nightmare" - at times!
It all has to do with
reinforcement - either positive or negative. If you were the
recipient of a negative statement (sometimes received in early
childhood) that statement is ingrained deep in your unconscious and you
will often grow up thinking your life is destined in a certain way
because someone said so. Likewise, if you were lucky enough to have
had supportive parents and/or authority figures who told you that you were
wonderful and were destined to succeed - that positive reinforcement
will remain in your psyche throughout life and help you to reach your goals
providing you apply yourself.
Thoughts are very
powerful. When we are sleeping, our creative energies are at
work. Often, we will awake with an interesting idea or a
solution to a problem we were wrestling with. The
"Little Professor" within always seems to find a way out of a
Many books and
articles have been written concerning positive thinking, creative
visualization, positive expectations, etc. Some people really
learn to utilize these concepts. Many of us do not. We are
lazy, indifferent or forget what these concepts are. We become
discouraged when we do not receive quick results and tell ourselves they
do not work - for you, anyhow. Availing yourself of professional
help would be beneficial if you cannot do it on your own.
Hypnotherapists, counselors, healers have helped many people.
Mostly, you must have the desire for health, wealth, and happiness
before you attract it. So tonight, before you go to sleep, think
about what you wish to attain. Program what
your dreams will be. Visualize happy and prosperous experiences in
your life. Then dream about them. In time, your luck will
change. You will be living the dream.
