Life had changed. My heart was aching, the kind of heartache you feel when someone you love deeply has died. You long for something that can never be again and the realization of it is devastating, almost unbearable. When we go through unexpected transitions, change or challenges, we want to avoid feeling anguish, disappointment or hurt but these feelings are all a part of your healing journey, at least it was for me.
Have you ever faced something so hurtful you wish you could blink and it be over? That was me.
Spirit reminded me that everything is a process, especially healing. One day I began to think about how powerful my thoughts are and how much fun it would be to co-create a life experience that felt good. Though I desired different, I hadn’t really dug deep into what I wanted. In order for change to come, I needed to get clear about what I wanted.
If I was going to transform my life, it was important for me to get super clear, walking helps me to clear out so I made a commitment to walk every morning and evening. The time alone allowed me to reconnect with myself and hear God better. During my walks God encouraged me to forgive myself for compromising self-worth. When in a place of healing, we must be willing to tell and embrace the truth about what happened and accept responsibility for the role we played in creating it; there is simply is no other way to heal. I was now ready to transform my life.
When you decide to create better circumstances for yourself, it can be frightening and intimidating especially if you’ve tried many times before. A good attitude makes a huge difference. When I stopped feeling as though I had been wronged and began to appreciate my experience, I felt a shift take place and began to feel hopeful. There still were days I’d wake up feeling pain, however, I didn’t allow the feelings to blind or immobilize me, I chose to love myself through it. It’s important to be kind to yourself when you are growing through transformation.
Being clearer enabled me to see exactly the kind of life I desired to co-create. Every day during my morning and evening “I AM” walks, not only did I see in my mind’s eye the kind of life I desired, I also began verbally declaring “I AM” statements to support my vision. This helped to reprogram my subconscious mind and allowed me to become fully engrossed in the feeling nature of what I desired to create. This felt great! It took my focus off my reality and straight to my destiny. The Bible says, “As a man thinketh, so he is.” (Pro 23:7) We create in our mind; this is the Law of Mind, “Everything arises out of thought.”
Ask yourself, what area(s) of my life could use a makeover? Allow the answer to come forth.
Once you are clear about this make a decision to be all in as you grow through the transformation. Decide right now that you are ready, willing and open to transforming your life. Go ahead, do it.
Little by little, you’ll begin to make changes that will strategically prepare & position you to becoming, doing and having that which you’d like to be, do and have, this is faith in action. Now, two things will likely happen, don’t be alarmed. First, you may experience resistance - thoughts that tell you that what you’re doing is stupid and a waste of time. Push through this, hear them but don’t let them deter you. As you overcome resistance, the second thing you'll notice is a mental shift in the way you think and act; a no matter what attitude will take over and all the excuses that once kept you from experiencing and maintaining real change will fade away. Try it, I mean really try it; what do you have to lose?
