Ah, ok, so for those of you who are suffering with a bit of the depression bug, I did say to keep an eye out because I'd post a mantra for you on my blog.... "I now go beyond other people's fears and limitations. I am the creator of my life". Depression is about not having the courage to live the life that you WANT, not the life you are handed. In almost every reading I end up speaking about Personal Responsibility. It is one of the 7 principles that I live by, and so very important. There is a sense of freedom when you take responsibility for all of your actions and reactions. When you can accept that you made that decision, knowing full well that there are consequences (whether good or bad, positive or negative) to each choice, you'll find that you almost ALWAYS feel good about your decision. Other people may not, but life really amounts to what YOU want & how you want to experience it.
This brings me to another very important point, "No one can make you feel anything, unless you allow it". Let me explain: people cannot force feelings on you. Only you can control your feelings. You can choose to feel a certain way. You can choose to feel hurt. You can choose to feel betrayed. You can choose to feel abused, neglected or battered. No one can MAKE you feel this way. You can also choose to learn the lesson and move on. You can choose to understand. You can choose to accept your role in the situation and change it. You OWN your feelings. So Own Them.
So, approximately 8 weeks ago, I started saying a mantra on a daily basis. If you are a Facebook friend of mine, you'll have seen it a few times as my status. "The Universe Supports Me In All That I Do." This mantra has made a HUGE difference in my life. Honestly. It has helped me to manifest all of the things I want. Well most.... lol. I wanted to be busier in my life (yes, really). I wanted my business to take off. I wanted to be available to my son. I wanted to help my husband. I wanted to have more fun. I wanted to gain more financial freedom. I say this mantra at least once a day. My life has changed in so many ways. The point of my telling you this is: If you don't make your desires known, how can anyone ever help you fulfill them? If you do not ask for help, you will never receive it. I tell clients all the time to put what you want, what you desire, out to the universe (or to God). Prayer is Talking to God, Meditation is Listening to God. Only when we specifically ask for what we want, can our desires be filled.
Lastly, here are a few quotes that have been floating around my head lately (I'm sure they'll be helpful to someone):
Your life is the sum result of all the choices you make, both consciously and unconsciously. If you can control the process of choosing, you can take control of all aspects of your life. You can find the freedom that comes from being in charge of yourself.
— Robert F. Bennett
We need to teach the next generation of children from Day One that they are responsible for their lives. Mankind's greatest gift, also its greatest curse, is that we have free choice. We can make our choices built from love or from fear.
— Elizabeth Kubler-Ross
You cannot afford to wait for perfect conditions. Goal setting is often a matter of balancing timing against available resources. Opportunities are easily lost while waiting for perfect conditions.
— Gary Ryan Blair (Mind Munchies)
