Sometimes as humans we are incredibly hard on ourselves. It is totally understandable because I too, am the same way. I believe we get caught up in what the perfect person or the perfect life may be like and we forget that no one is perfect and that we are all on individual paths. We all have lessons to learn and a purpose to unveil individually.
One thing that I have learned on my spiritual journey is that practicing positive thinking habits is everything. It lifts the spirit while putting your mind in a positive place. Having a daily affirmation gives you the opportunity to profess things you want to happen into your life; as well as the kind of energy you want to attract. I say a daily affirmation, it is something like a prayer “I am thankful for everything that you’ve done, everything that you haven’t and everything that you will do. I am humbled at your grace, thankful and patient.” I say this affirmation before meditation sometimes, it serves a more spiritual purpose for me but I would recommend saying affirmations like this for those looking to manifest that energy, especially those practicing spiritualists. Saying this affirmation empowers me in so many ways.
When you believe what you are saying, your words are not only empowering to others but to yourself. I have found that I am becoming a more humble person each day, more patient and understanding of difficult obstacles during unexpected times. I am happy even during times when I shouldn’t be because I have a strong spiritual core built around my belief that the energy I put out manifests into great things.
The more positive you are in life the more you’re going to attract that energy. I cannot stress this enough. If you are negative all the time and always complaining or tearing others down; not understanding life or trying to when it is taking course, you’re going to attract that energy into your life and into yourself.
In order to receive the things we ask for we need to teach our selves discipline. Humble ourselves and be open minded. Be the things you wish to attract. Be the change you wish to see in the world.
