Anyone remotely familiar with any of the Star Wars movies will be familiar with this statement, "These Are Not The Droids You Are Looking For!"
The Star Wars movies show us how the Jedi Masters are able to "change a person's mind" on any particular subject.
As I thought about this, I thought about how each of us is our own Jedi Master and we each have the capability of changing our own mind or beliefs.
Consider the person who believes he or she is unable to "HAVE", "BE", or "DO" whatever he or she desires in his or her life?
Where did this belief come from? Somewhere, sometime in your life, you were told that there were things in your life that simply were not possible for you. Well, what if you gave yourself permission to be your own Jedi Master and after each negative thought you have, you immediately say, "this is not the thought you want to think" and then replace the negative thought with opposite thinking?
Opposite thinking is exactly what it sounds like - thinking the opposite of something that has been on your mind.
Negative Thought Opposite Thinking
I will never be healthy Being healthy is within my power
I will never be wealthy I have the power to create my own streams of wealth
I will never have a healthy loving relationship I know my soul mate is out there waiting for me
I will never amount to anything Whoever said I would never amount to anything was wrong
You begin to get the idea, right? Actually this is no Jedi mind trick. Opposite thinking has been around for hundreds of years, it's what most of us call "Positive Thinking"! But first you must give yourself permission to start asking the question, "is that true, or is this something I have always believed because this type of thinking has always been my habit?"
Once you realize that YOU have the power over your thoughts and every choice you make is based on what you BELIEVE to be true, you now begin to see how you have the power to manifest anything you desire into your life.
The challenge isn't whether or not you deserve it, the challenge is whether or not you BELIEVE you deserve what you want. Many people have wants in their life but few people believe they deserve to have what they want because of the limited way they think.
I am sure, if you really think about it, everything you think you "can't have" is because somewhere, sometime in your life, someone told you that you can't have it. These people don't tell you this because they are trying to make your life miserable, they tell you these things because they also have limiting beliefs.
What about the person who said:
Every generation evolves when they are ready to let go of things that no longer serve them. Holding on to limiting beliefs will never serve you so when are you going to give yourself permission to stop believing negative thoughts?
Try this exercise: make a list of everything you want in your life. Now look at your list and as you read each of your wants, listen to that thought inside your head telling you WHY you can't have it. Then, take that negative thought and do some "opposite thinking." Commit to doing this exercise every single day for 30 days (if you skip one day you must start all over because it takes 21 to 30 days to create a habit) and see what happens.
I will be looking forward to hearing about each of your wants that became your reality.
If you are doubtful that this exercise can work, well... let me just say this, "that is not the thought you want to believe!"
