Friday, January 08, 2010 - Today's Words of Inspiration and Great Giveaways!

Who Can it Be Knocking at my Door?

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - New Year/New You continues! I've often heard that 'Opportunities multiply as they are seized', but I think opportunity can't be seized if it can't be embraced. If you are not ready for change, it will not come. Think of change like a job interview, you need to prepare. You need to put yourself in 'that' place physically, emotionally and mentally.

Change can be scary on a good day. Change can be scary even if you know it's coming (which albeit doesn't happen often). But it doesn't have to be. Each year offers up new opportunities, but how many of them do you actually seize? Why? Why Not?

The change that leads to growth often times comes from seizing new opportunity. This year we just can't let old fears take hold.

Seize opportunities as they arise. What's the worse that can happen? That it won't be right for you? That's OK, it's a chance at learning. It's just as important to learn what we are not capable of sometimes.

Any opportunity you seize changes you, it will help you grow, it will help you discover new facets of your personality, of your capabilities,  it is to be embraced, enjoyed and appreciated, never feared!

Sometimes Opportunity doesn't always knock and allow itself to be seized, sometimes opportunity needs to be pursed or created. You are more than capable of doing so!

Use 'Today's Words of Inspiration' as a breathing meditation to still your mind, quiet your thoughts and bring in positive energy. As you inhale bring in only positive energy by saying in your mind, I breathe in positive energy (or you can say creative energy if that is what you wish to create more of) and as you exhale, Affirm out loud today 'I actively seek out new opportunities. I appreciate all chances the Universe sends me to grow and change.'

Spend some time each day enjoying focused breathing AND soul guided meditative visualization, in doing so, you can bring about amazing, profound and powerful changes in your life.

Visualize yourself manifesting something unique, guided by universal forces that emerge spontaneously from within your soul. Do this at least twice today and see how by taking a moment away from the hectic pace and breathing in positive energy and affirming what you wish to create, your thinking will become different.

Remember, attitude really does determine altitude.
