Most of you already know that I have a 4 year old daughter Lisa. My 4 year old teaches me every day to use my words wiselyJ. If I happen to say “Don’t slam the door”! Well, all of you Mom’s out there know that this just triggers a respond that will make her SLAM THE DOOR.
Unfortunately our sub consciousness is not any better than a 4 year old. Just think of a statement like: “I won’t eat any cookies this year”! Well the moment you made this decision, your sub consciousness will want to have a cookie. You might spend more time thinking about eating cookies than you have ever done before.
Success lays in the way we phrase our New Year Resolution. If we start our New Year with something negative, we will be doomed to fail. Start your Year with something positive.
Here is an example:
I will eat more vegetables to feel healthier, happier and lighter--- INSTEAD OF ----I have to lose 5 pounds!”
The difference between the two statements is energetically. Losing weight is always a slight threat for our sub consciousness since naturally our bodies are meant to hoard fat in case we won’t have any food in the future. By trying to focus on LOSING, you are already in an internal debate. The body does not want to lose fat but your mind does. Internal conflicts always end up bad.
But what if you focus on feeling lighter and healthier? Both our sub consciousness and consciousness are concerned about the wellbeing of the whole body. The promise of feeling healthier and happier is appealing for the body and mind. Most likely you will be more successful with a statement like this since there wasn’t a threat against your nature.
Rephrase your New Year’s Resolutions and keep your focus on something positive, affirmative and loving. Positive statements are naturally more energetically. How do you know if your statement has a higher energy vibration? Well, think of a baby that smiles at you! It makes you feel warm within your heart and it might even bring out a smile. Right? Well, now think of a dead tree? This image made you feel empty and sad within your heart, almost to the point that you did not want to finish the thought of that imagination. Well. Your New Year’s Resolution should make you feel warm and happy within your HEART.
Once you can feel it within your HEART your resolution won’t just happen, it actually will transform your whole body and wellbeing. Stay on the positive vibration of things and you will have a fantastic YEAR 2014!
Happy NEW YEAR to all my crazy friends who actually read what I am writing :)
