People ask me, "How do you make sure you have a great day - every day?"
I had to stop and think for a moment. "How do I make my day great every day?"
And then I realized that I have a daily ritual. And it starts the moment I get out of bed. I begin my day by making my bed. In fact, I make my bed every single day.
The first time I was asked this question, I hedged on the answer. I felt as if I was an obsessive compulsive bed maker. But then I realized that my bed is the first thing I see in the morning and the first thing I see when I come home at night.
As I started to analyze my feelings, I realized that I couldn't stand coming home to an unmade bed. No matter how good a day I've had, an unmade bed brings me down. I need to leave it fresh in the morning and find it fresh at night.
So if you don't do it already, start making a new habit tomorrow. It might seem like such a silly thing. But it works for me!
Test it. Try it. See what happens when you apply it. Think of it this way. It's not an exercise in discipline, it's an exercise in happiness. Make your day by making your bed!
Having a great day every day is as easy as 1, 2, 3 -
- Make you bed!
- Visualize a great and magical day with all things in flow!
- Give thanks for 7 wonderful things in your life!
If thoughts turn into things then your mind is a great 'manifestor'. When viewed in this way, were it not for our negative subconscious programming, we would be incredible intention generators.
Let's put that another way. We already are incredible intention generators. However, what we are manifesting maybe less than EXACTLY what we want because all of the subconscious programming that gets into the mix along with our pure intention.
It's as we went to bake chocolate chip cookies. But when they were done they tasted like a combination of hazel butter and chocolate chips because a few hidden ingredients got into the mix. And although the result may taste good, it isn't quite what we intended.
Our life results sometimes appear that way. Like something strange got into the mix and it turned out to be our lives.
Now here's the good news! There are so many new clearing tools and methods available on the planet at this time. These allow us the opportunity to take responsibility for much of our own subconscious clearing and transformation. Many of these provide us with never before known avenues of self-healing.
One such avenue available over the past 25 years is something called TFT, EFT or Meridian Tapping. The original work was done by Dr. Roger Callahan. From the time of its inception, it has gone into the hands of hundreds of credible therapists who are now teaching it all over the world.
Here is a little private introduction to EFT by Dr. Tate Rolfs. Dr. Rolfs demonstrates a method of relieving stress by balancing the parasympathetic nervous system using EFT or Meridian Tapping. This is a very informal sharing but I wanted to share it with you.
I'm back! Please forgive the long hiatus... I've been on the road and in training rooms and have neglected my connections.
But more than that - the magic of intention, visualization, and clear positive affirmations have brought a tremendous quantum leap in my life. The universe listens!
Actually, the universe is always listening! Then comes the 'be patient with the process' part as your intention only happens in the correct time! Then comes the quantum leap!
I'll be sharing the magic with you in the coming weeks. For now, keep your intention clear... do your 'morning in the mirror' practice (April 7, 9, & 14 2009) and have a great and happy day knowing that all that you desire in your heart of hearts is coming your way!
