I recently heard a great podcast by a woman named Pam Grout. She is a travel writer and author of “E-Squared: Nine Do-it-Yourself Energy Experiments that prove your thoughts create your reality.” It was a great interview and I wanted to share some of the highlights.
She shared some of her personal tips for getting things right:
She said a big one is to FOCUS on what’s RIGHT, instead of what’s WRONG. I don’t know about you, but I have to catch myself sometimes from asking my daughter or husband, “What’s wrong.” Just the other morning, my daughter was looking a little down & just as I was about to ask [the dreaded questions] I caught myself and instead said, “What’s right!” My daughter gave me a strange look, but I smiled and focused on being positive—shining a light to something good, instead of opening a door to something harder, darker.
She said every morning she wakes up and says “Something Amazingly Awesome is going to happen today.” I LOVE that!! Everyone can nay say or question good intentions, affirmations, etc. BUT I would rather have them on my side & use them. I can attest just waking up the last couple of days and saying this to myself—I feel better. Try it!!
She said she has a posse of friends that she sends out NEW blessings every day. She said gratitude is always a good thing, but “scouting” out something NEW every day is harder than you think. It makes you truly become more aware.
She said, Our minds and our thoughts are the ONE thing that we always have control over. Take a minute and think about that! No one can take away your thoughts and how you choose to use them. You can choose to be a winner or a whiner. You can think you are beautiful or tell yourself you aren’t, no matter what–you are the one who controls what comes in and out of your thoughts. Choose wisely.
She said, Say Thank you in hopes that you create the desired intention. She said, like when someone gives you a cookie, you say thank you before you have even enjoyed it. Say Thank you for things you would like to come your way. [the power of intentions]
She said, if we just continually want—we get stuck in ‘wanting’ BUT when we create intentions, things are on there way.
Hope these thoughts and ideas help you focus on good things—things that spring you to What’s RIGHT!!
