This is one of my favorite positive affirmations statements:
The process of creation is the same for all things, whether you want to bring something to you or remove something negative from your life.
If you have a habit you wish to break, or anything negative you wish to remove from your life, you must focus on what you want. That means you visualize and imagine yourself in that negative-free state right now. Imagine yourself in as many scenes as you possibly can where the negative situation is completely absent. Imagine yourself happy and free. Eliminate any picture from your mind of you with the negative situation. Just imagine yourself in the state you want to be in, and feel that you are that, right now.
Creator of “The Secret”
Here is an excerpt from the book, How to Be Rich ~ Compact Wisdom from the World’s Greatest Wealth-Builders.
See it, Despite Old Thoughts Creeping in:
Creation in consciousness comes slowly at first, for the ordinary mind has not been taught to hold a perfect vision. The old distorted visions of the lesser thinking will intrude again and again; negative forms must be displaced by the perfected form with which we wish to be surrounded.
There is not an hour in our lives when we are acting without a vision. We are always creating either the thing we want or the thing we do not want, and the New Civilization realizes the folly of creating for itself pictures of the things it does not want, which, when they appear, can only bind it closer into limitations.
There are some minds that are full of negative images. Their whole field of consciousness is lined with distorted thought-forms of poverty and bad luck: shanties, hovels, misfortune, doubt and fear. These have been their daily projections and they have vitalized them until they materialized. After we being to create in consciousness, some of our thought images will be crude, but so are an artist’s first pictures crude, but to those who really see the vision and feel the law, there is no turning back and there can be no such word as failure. Standing fast in an unfaltering faith, with the vision perfect in consciousness, anyone can drive the new creation straight through their old environment. Holding it there, the atomic mind of substance cannot refuse to produce it around us in form.
Plenty of whatever we project, or make believe, must come out into form; our realization becomes actualization and we are then in our law of divine transference, which no one can limit but ourselves.
(From Concentration: The Secret of Success by Julia Seton, 1916)
A lovely quote by author Louise L. Hay, from her book Heart Thoughts.
choose to believe:
“Everyone is always helpful,”
you will find that
wherever you go
in life, people are there
to help you.
Have a beautiful day,
Remember to breathe.
