If Your Life Sucks Then Your Beliefs Suck Too

In recent months, I was in a tremendous slump.  I felt disconnected from my God, from life, from others.  I became so angry that I began yelling at everyone in my house, including my children.  My home became increasingly messy because I didn’t have the energy to clean up regularly.  My grades took a nose dive and I barely passed my classes.  My husband and I were in a constant state of disagreement, that I was contemplating divorce.  I had lost control and I felt completely defeated.  One day in bed, I was watching videos on YouTube and came across a series of videos that truly helped me.  While watching these videos I realized I could change my situation if I re-framed what I believed.

When I began to examine my beliefs, I realized I had some very self-defeating thoughts that lead to self-defeating behaviors.  I learned that many of my negative beliefs stemmed from my childhood, and those feelings that I felt had to be recognized and dealt with in order for me to begin healing.  Once I realized my past, and took responsibility for the role I played in continuing the cycle, I then had to recreate my beliefs to reflect what I want to manifest in my life.

If your life isn’t what you’d like it to be, then you should examine your belief system.  I guarantee that is the source of your dismay.  Your thoughts are based on a underlying belief system that ultimately drives your behavior.  For example, If you’re dating or married to someone that mistreats you, then you probably believe you’re not worthy of love and respect.  This belief probably stems from your childhood, and was made manifest in your adult life.  Here’s the kicker.  Your thoughts will support your beliefs.  You attract what you believe.  Whatever you’re struggling with in your life, you should reflect on what you believe about yourself.

If your life sucks then your beliefs do too.  If you positively change your thoughts your life will change positively.

Affirmations:  I am capable

                       I am able to change my beliefs

                       I am able to make a change

                       I have the power to move mountains

It’s Time For a Change

I haven’t written a post in a few weeks, and there’s a reason.  I’m going through a mental revamp.

In the last six weeks, I have gone through the most turbulent emotional time in my adult life.  It had gotten so bad, that I didn’t get out of bed for days and days.  I barely ate.  I barely slept.  I barely showered.  It was rough!

Now I have come out on the other side, and I can say that I’m a better person because of this experience.  I learned a lot about myself.  I learned the importance of having the right people around me.  I also realize how important it is to stay spiritually connected to God.

If you are going through something right now, know this.  You can endure more than you believe.  You have power.  You have choices.  Make the choice that best fits you and your unit. Your unit can be your family, your team, etc.  Do what will allow you to live your very best life.  To live any other way is spiritual suicide.  Your life means something and you are here to deliver your special gift to the world.

As I said earlier, I’m going through a mental revamp, and because of this, this blog is going to be revamped as well.  In June you will see a new title.  You will see more postings throughout the week.  You will see more pictures.  You will get more of me and the message behind this journey.  Yes, this blog will still be a place where you can receive some encouragement, but you will also see much, much more.

I’m excited!  I hope you are too.  Get ready for a fun time.

I thank you for sticking with me.  I hope you will like the new changes.  I hope we all take steps to make our lives better, so we can help someone else.

You Can Do It

The truth is you already know what to do so do it!  Make the decision to make it happen regarding anything you want to change.  No more excuses.  No more shoulda, coulda, wouldas.  Make the decision to take action.  That’s the only thing that is holding you back because you have the answer; you just haven’t taken action.  Yes! Taking action means you’ll have to step out of your comfort zone.  Yes! Taking action means you’ll have to put in the extra effort.  Yes! Taking action means you will have to make some adjustments.  But let me ask you, do you like how things are going?  Do you like who’ve you become?  No?  Then change it!  No more crying and whining.  Change it!  Get it done! Make it happen!  Find a way!  You know why?  Because you can do it!

Pray, meditate, and take action.

Take Care of Yourself

Take Care of Yourself by Hans Olofsson

Take Care of Yourself by Hans Olofsson

I haven’t posted in a few weeks because I needed to take a mental break. I had so many things on my plate that I felt completely overwhelmed.  I began forgetting, and making unusual mistakes because I allowed too many things to enter my mental space. I found myself using my cedarwood essential oil incessantly.

When you begin to feel mental drain it’s usually due to lack of planning, and/or indistinct boundaries.  Either way, the issue is do you care enough about yourself to decline the things that don’t serve your being.  As  a recovering low “self-esteemer” (I just made that up), I struggle with creating boundaries.  I don’t want to disappoint people so I take on things that I don’t want to.  I allow their problem to become my problem, although I had nothing to do with creating the problem.

The key is to realize that you (and I) are worthy of peace and calm within our spirits.  If you are asked to do something that doesn’t serve your being, and isn’t a part of your personal agenda, then it’s okay to decline respectfully.  You (and I) have to do what makes you feel most like you.  It’s authentic.  It’s real.  If people do not understand that, then you may have to make a tough choice to limit or even eliminate being in their presence so that you don’t reflect their energy.

Overwhelm is self-inflicted. Choose to have a plan.  Choose to have boundaries.

Are you interested in learning about essential oils and how they can work to support your natural health.  Then join my team.  Get healthy today! 

Changes to this blog will be coming soon.  I’m wrestling with whether I should turn this into a daily blog, or continue as weekly.  It’s a difficult decision because it would mean it would take more of my time.  However, I want to sit quietly, listen to the Holy Spirit and make a decision that will serve everyone.  Please be patient with me.  Just know that I’m working on becoming a better person in order to present better content, but I want to make the best decision.  I appreciate your patience in this transition.

My thinking

Just recently I’ve realized how much my belief systems have shaped my life.  I used to think my circumstances controlled my destiny.   More and more I’m realizing that circumstances do  matter, but how I handle my circumstances matters more.   Because I want to manifest abundance in my life, I’ve started to question the words I heard growing up.  Much of what I heard was the interpretation of what someone else experienced, and I grew up thinking “that’s life” and there’s  nothing I can do about it.  That paradigm is shifting.

If you are going to reach your goals in life, you have to examine the way you think.  If your thinking hasn’t gotten you where you want to be, then you’ll have to make some adjustments.  There are millions of resources you can read or listen to to help you along the way.  You can get a mentor (Your mentor would be someone that has achieved what you are trying to achieve).  You  can attend seminars, watch webinars, or listen to podcasts.  I am a Christian, so I believe the Bible is the unadulterated truth, so it is my principle guide.  However, it is not the only book I read to gain insight on the things that I want to manifest in my life.  There are so many positive ways to improve your life.  You have to decide what you want to improve; whether it’s your relationships, health, finances, etc.  Once you’ve decided, then you have to dive in.  Question your beliefs and determine if what you speak with your mouth is what you believe in your heart, and vice versa.  What you think and what you speak have to be aligned in order for you to see positive results.  Be cognizant of the thoughts you allow to inhabit your mind.  You get what you think about the most.  Concentrate on what you want instead of what you don’t.

Pray, meditate, then take action.
