So I’m not a big fan of organized religion. There, I said it. If you’ve read this blog, you should get that I AM a fan of God/Spirit/Universe or whatever it is you want to call it. I’m just not in to someone or some group telling me HOW I should believe in God/Spirit/Universe or whatever. (Notice how I used the word “I’m”? As in, that’s just me. If you’re in to it, that’s awesome. I am in NO WAY saying that organized religion is bad, or evil, or whatever. As long as whatever YOU’RE in to makes you happy, then I’m happy. So everyone stand down…) Back to my blog…
I’m also not a fan of what I call ‘TV Church.’ So yesterday I’m cruising the channels looking for a good Christmas movie and I come across a big name TV Preacher right at the moment when he says, “Don’t use your words to describe your situation, use your words to change it.” And I thought, “Wait a minute! This guy knows what he’s talking about!” And I watched his entire sermon. And it was brilliant.
He was talking Law of Attraction. He was talking about how your words and hence your thoughts, create your reality. And he nailed it. What most of us do when someone asks us how we’re doing is reply with what our reality is. “Well, I feel like crap today. I’ve got the cold I get every year. And the bank turned down my application for a loan. And Johnny just got kicked out of school again. I tell ya, life is a bitch and then ya die.”
We use our words to describe our situation.
What if we used our words to change our situation? As I’ve said a hundred times before, I get that when the situation is dire, it’s pretty hard to come up with something positive to say. But, if you try, you can. And remember, who cares if it isn’t exactly true right now! The point is…
By ‘putting it out there,’ IT WILL BE!
Here’s an example. Suppose all those things I mentioned above ARE true in this here and now, but you decide you’re not going to give them that power to continue getting worse. You’re going to create your own, new reality. So when someone asks how you’re doing you say, “Ya know, all in all, pretty good. I had a cold, but it moved through so quickly I barely noticed it. I’ve got a lead on a great bank that’s going to help me with a loan. And we’re looking at a new school for Johnny. One that really understands his unique needs. Things are really turning out well for me. And I’m feeling good about it!” You speak the change you want. Over and over again. And you’ll eventually believe it. And it will become your reality.
Sounds too simple, right? Sounds like it will never work.
But what if it’s not and what if it will?
Merry Christmas Everyone!
