Are you sick and tired of being sick and tired of your life? Have you reached the breaking point where you say enough is enough? Are you ready to open a new chapter of your life and leave the old stressful life behind you?

Well, you have come to the right place! I will help you identify what exactly has been holding you back and how you can turn your life around. And for us to accomplish this, you need to understand the basic principles of habits and how to break bad habits and form new ones.

You see, we are creatures of habit. In order to change, we have to come to a new understanding of self. How you think and feel creates a state of being.

POSITIVE THOUGHTSMany people exist in a state in which the body becomes the ‘mind’ when they are ruled almost exclusively by the body and how it feels. When we have negative emotions, such as anger and fear, our heart rhythms become erratic and disorganized. In contrast, positive emotions such as love and joy produce highly ordered and coherent patterns in the heart rhythm.

 

According to Heartmath Research Centre in California, only when subjects held both heightened emotions and clear objectives in alignment were they able to produce the intended effect. Thoughts have an electric charge and feelings have a magnetic charge. Together, how we think and how we feel produces a state of being which creates your reality.

To experience change, you need to observe a new outcome with a new mind.

Own-Your-ThoughtsOur routine, known thoughts and feelings perpetuate the same state of being, which creates the same behaviours thereby creating the same reality.

So to change, we have to think, feel and act in new ways. We have to ‘be’ different in terms of our responses to experiences. We have to create a new state of mind.

To change your life is to change your energy, that is, to make an elemental change in your mind and emotions. Change requires coherence therefore, you need to align your thoughts and feelings.

When you hold clear, focused thoughts about your purpose, accompanied by your passionate emotional engagement, you create a potential reality that matches what you want.

Aligning your thoughts and feelings is Key. For example, you may think wealthy thoughts but if you feel poor, you are not going to attract financial abundance to yourself. This is because thoughts are the language of the brain and feelings are the language of the body.

When mind and body are working together, when our thoughts and feelings are aligned, we create a new state of being.

Change your internal environment, that is, the way you think and feel, and then see how the external environment is altered by your efforts.

You need to hold a clear intention of what you want, but leave the ‘how’ details to the process. This is because, it is the ‘how’ that keeps us stuck in the negative emotions of fear.

Personally, after I lost my job a while back, I knew I did not want to be employed but I did not know how I was going to achieve financial freedom without employment. I had never tried doing business and I saw people close to me try to start a business and they failed. It is the constant fear of how I was going to make it that made me go into depression.

It is only when I consciously decided to have a new state of mind, by having new thoughts of hope and purpose and doing what I love, and the feeling of being happy to do what I loved, that my reality changed. I stopped stressing on the ‘how’ and took it a day at a time. My internal environment changed and I felt a sense of fulfillment by living life on my own terms. Shortly after, my external environment changed as people and circumstances started aligning, helping me fulfill my purpose.

THOUGHTSI took the broken pieces and rebuilt myself by not playing the victim. Instead, I took charge of my thoughts and feelings and directed them towards my purpose. I am no longer battling depression, and now living life on my terms!

It is possible to reinvent yourself!

It is always easy coming up with goals and a list of things that you want to achieve, but how do we ensure that we actualize our goals?

We need to identify what is holding us back. What has prevented us from achieving our desires for all those years? It is our self-limiting belief systems.

You see, growing up, from the ages 0-6, we were not able to think for ourselves. Our conscious mind, the reasoning mind was not developed. So how did we survive? We survived through seeing the world through the people around us. If our parents, caregivers or school authority told us that something was bad, we could never argue. We accepted it as a fact. We believed everything they told us. That is how we developed our sense of good and bad. We were socialized into believing what they believed. And if you dig deeper, you will find out that most of the times, we were raised according to how our parents or caregivers were raised.

It is true that there is no manual to parenting. So that begs the question, does it mean that it was the right way? That how they saw the world and how we came to see it as a result is correct?

You see, how anybody sees  the world is a result of belief systems. What one culture believes to be true is completely different to the way a different culture believes to be true. So who is right?

whatyouareIf your life has not been working out the way you intend it to, you need to examine your belief systems. Some of the belief systems you adopted as a child were positive and expanded your mind, but also, some of them were negative, and they limited you. Even after you developed your reasoning capacity, the beliefs you adopted in the first 7 years of your life became so ingrained in you, that they sank into your subconscious mind.

The subconscious mind, is that part of the brain that does not question but follows a set of patterns and routines. For example, when you eat food, you do not have to think about chewing, breaking down the food and absorbing the nutrients into the body. The subconscious mind does that for you. The same thing applies to the heartbeat and blood circulation or when healing a wound. You don’t have to think about it because the subconscious mind takes care of it. This is because there is so much energy consumed in conscious thinking, and in order to preserve energy for survival, the subconscious mind automates the processes that have been repeated over and over and become automatic responses.

 

Can you imagine the impact bad habits have on you once automated? You don’t notice them because they are automated and it only comes into your conscious awareness when the damage has already been done.

 

Now you can understand that the person you are today and the things you have and will achieve are as a result of the beliefs that you have implanted in your mind. If your goals are inconsistent with your beliefs, you struggle to achieve them.

So how do we identify and change our self-limiting beliefs?

  1. Examine your goals and see which areas you struggle most.
  2. Then critically examine what belief systems are behind the struggle.

For example,Financial: if you always struggle to make a living, did you grow up hearing that life is hard? That money does not grow on trees? That money is the root of all evil?

  1. Form new beliefs that you want to adopt around those areas.

For example, Money is not hard to come by. Money actually makes my life easier in everything that I do. 

  1. Write them down in clear short sentences as statements. These are called affirmations.

For example, I am Abundance. Money constantly flows to me. I deserve Money and Success.

  1. Read them out aloud every single day, preferably when you have just woken up, until they are ingrained in your memory. They will soon be automated and your life will reflect your new belief systems!
