Tuesday, August 18, 2009 - Today's Words of Inspiration and TWO giveaways!

Count Your Blessings

With the state of the economy, the loss of jobs everywhere, and debts skyrocketing, the pressure is mounting. This pressure makes it all too easy to focus on what you do not have. On what's missing. Just for today, count your blessings. And I do mean that literally. Count them. Get out your pen and paper (yes I know that's kinda retro, but go with me here) and write out 10 things you are grateful for in your life right NOW. Yes TEN things. NO LESS. You can definitely start with family and friends and work your way from there!


I'm watching you. OK well maybe I'm not watching you because that could be creepy and 'stalkerish', but I really want you to do it. See what you do have. Acknowledge what is working. Be thankful for the 10 things on your list. That list is a lot like Willy Wonka's Golden Ticket. The more you focus on those things, and how they make your life better and how grateful you are for them, you will attract more blessings. Live in gratitude, because you will then live in abundance. Push the thoughts of what you don't have out of your mind, not just today but every day and watch your life change for the better.

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 live in gratitude for my 10 blessings (read them all straight off your list).' (It is very important to affirm these things out loud! It doesn't matter what time of the day you do it, just that you do it!)

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.
