“I am a human being of will; my failure; fear. Life is but a leap of faith, itself the impact never felt, the fall from whence we once were one and now into oblivion. We have recall of what we need to make our time here worth living but sight alone is not enough. We must, in faith, put use this trust our purpose here is but to live, not reinvent that which exists. Pursuit of all beyond is such a waste of time; delight in now. Forsake this, life, it’s your to do, but know what all is offered you. Make peace with that which measures past; it hath no power. Fate is fulfilled through you. Of man, true love, is greatest all be glad with that and stay awhile.” — Rob Ludwig
What is your intention for manifesting in 2014? The New Year is a great reminder to create a new beginning. Although we are doing this every day, with every thought we have, most of us aren’t aware of the magnificent creative power we have. Yes, every thought you have is creating your reality, and you have approximately 60,000 thoughts per day. Be mindful of your thoughts!
I have read a lot of books about creating happiness and manifesting abundance. I’ve gone to workshops like “Playing the Matrix,” by Mike Dooley and I’ve watched movies like, “The Secret” and “What the Bleep Do We Know?” They empower and inspire, and made me feel like I could do anything. The ideas are great, the positive mindset is imperative, and the creative visualization is essential, but that’s just the beginning. You’ve got to take the next step and put your dreams into action!
Your time is wasted if you spend it talking about all of the great things you’re reading and watching, and dreaming about the life you want, and creating vision boards to help you manifest that life, without taking the next step. You have to take action or you will never create the life of your dreams.
Don’t become a self help junkie! The information is great, but it’s like putting Novocain on a toothache; once the drug wears off, the pain and the problem is still there. You have a chest full of tools that you admire every day, but if you keep them in your tool chest; what good are they?
Make this year different; get serious about creating happiness and abundance in your life! Don’t spend another year thinking about how wonderful you want your life to be, and then procrastinate on the next step. You’ve done the lessons, now put them into action!
When your alarm clock goes off; get up! Stop hitting the snooze button.
I know it’s scary; change can be scary. But wasting your entire life, dreaming about the kind of life you want, and not actually creating it when you had the chance is a tragedy! The clock is ticking. You are here to create something wonderful. You were given this life to do something with it. Embrace change and go get the life of your dreams! You will most likely make mistakes and there may be great failures, but you can get back up. Go after your dreams until they happen. If you keep sitting on the couch, life will pass you by.
Time to wake up! Set your goals and put your plan into action. Make this year a new beginning, for you. Life is a gift. Each day you wake up presents a new opportunity to begin your life, again.
Look inside of you; the answer has been there all along. The Love in your heart will guide you in your pursuit of happiness and manifesting abundance. Let the passion in your soul be your compass; it will tell you when you are on the right path, and the pain in your gut will let you know when you’ve made a wrong turn.
Have faith, ask for guidance and choose Love in every moment. The Universe is waiting for you! Live the life you were born to live.
Keep up Now ~ with the stream of higher consciousness and stay connected to the Source.
