Reach A New Height

motipostpicWithin you is something unique, something that longs for expression and somthing that will not only change you forever, but will change the world forever. As each one is an individualization of that which created, sustains and lives in all, each one individualizes it. It is only you that thinks as you do, perceives life as you do and feels as you do.

It is likewise only you that creates what you create, for only you can. No other can be you, no other can think for you and no other can give the world the gift that lies within you. You have something to give which only you can. It is the reason you were born.

Though we each have a special gift to give the world, few of us ever do and few of us ever will. In fact, most never realize this is true of them and will go through life feeling as if this is only the case for a special few. As you read these words you may reason, “There could only be one Da Vinci, Beethoven, Joan of Arc, Edison, Ford, Nelson Mandela, Amelia Earhart, Bill Gates, Warren Buffet, Barack Obama or anyone else who is that notable for their contributions to the world”. If that is your thought, you are absolutely correct. There can only be one of any of these monumental figures of history, past or present.

Likewise, there is and can only be one you. You may not have risen to the height that any of the aforementioned have, but you can. But like each of the aforementioned, no one else can do what you have in you to do. Only you have the God given talent that is yours. Only you have the ideas and the desires that can give expression to your dreams, for they are your dreams and your dreams alone.

You can keep doing what you feel is practical or safe, you can keep feeling as if there is no hope for you to accomplish anything with your life, or you can listen to your heart and honor your heart’s desire. Your unique talents are equal to living the desires of your heart. When you listen to your heart’s desire and follow your dream, believing that your dreams become your reality, they do.

New heights are in you to be reached and you can reach them. You cannot reach a new height if you don’t believe you can, because if you don’t believe you can reach it, you won’t even try. You will not reach a new height if you don’t start moving in that direction, because without moving in the direction of your dream you cannot get there. You will only reach a new height if you begin to climb.

Dare to climb that mountain, write that book, sing that song  or implement that idea the world has never heard of before, because the dream belongs to you and you alone. It belongs to you, but it is your gift for the world.

Learning to Love Yourself

What happens in your world of experience is always a reflection of your consciousness; as above so below, as within so without, you reap what you sow and Life always gives to you what you give to it.

The sum total of your thoughts, feelings and beliefs comprise your consciousness.  This includes those ideas you are aware of on the conscious level of your mental activity, and those ideas you are not aware of on the subconscious level of your mental activity.  Not being aware of what is going on in the thought atmosphere of your subconscious mind, you are quite often left feeling surprised or helpless about the life experiences you have.

Considering this it is imperative to think about how much you really love yourself, because to the degree that you really love yourself, you see that love reflected in your world of experiences.  Do you harshly judge and criticize yourself, or are you kind and loving to yourself.  For instance; do you hear yourself saying things like, “how could you be so stupid” or “you idiot, you should know better” when you make a mistake, or do you say instead, “that’s alright, something good will come from this”, “it’s not my fault, I did the best I could in the moment” or something like “okay, let’s look for the lesson in this”.

Since your subconscious is filled with every thought, idea, feeling and memory you’ve ever had, it is impossible to know everything that goes on in the subconscious activity of your mind.  But it is through the subconscious activity of your mind that your world of experiences, circumstances, events and conditions is created.  If you’ve been harshly judging yourself all of your life, what you feel and believe about yourself, and what is stored in your subconscious mind is harsh judgment, and will be reflected in your experiences.  On the other hand, if you’ve been kind and loving to yourself all of your life, what you feel and believe about yourself, and what is stored in your subconscious mind is loving kindness, and that will be reflected in your experiences.

The good news is that if you have not been so kind and loving to yourself up until now, you can now begin.  You have the ability to change the way you think about yourself, because you have dominion over what you think.  Starting now you can redirect your conscious thinking and thereby reprogram your subconscious thought activity.  You can be proactive in the way you think about yourself and you can consciously choose whatever thoughts and ideas you want to fill your subconscious mind.  If you want to have more kind and loving experiences in your life, start now by being more kind and loving to yourself.

Use more positive self speak in the midst of unfavorable situations.  The more you do, the less those situations will occur.  Be proactive in consciously redirecting and reprogramming your subconscious thinking with the use of positive affirmations, using kind and loving thoughts about yourself.  The more you do this, the more the thought atmosphere of your subconscious mental activity changes, thus more positive, kind and loving conditions will be reflected in your world of experiences.

Use affirmations such as: I love myself, I am good, I am always the best I can be, I accept myself as I am, I am a good (man, woman, person, husband, wife, mother, father, employee, boss, daughter, son, etc…), I deserve the best, I am wonderful, I am fabulous, I am smart, I am wise, I am good at what I do, I am good to me, I am beautiful, I am kind to myself and I forgive myself.  Don’t limit yourself to these suggestions; create some kind and loving self speak affirmations for yourself to use.

Think about the ideas you have read here and make the decision to be more kind and loving to you by implementing them.  Remember, you have spent a lifetime creating the thought atmosphere that makes up the subconscious of your mind; you are not going to completely change it overnight.  Devote yourself to improving your life by using positive self talk and positive affirmations for as long as it takes to see the change you want to see.  After all, who’s going to love you if you don’t? You deserve the best. And so It is. – Guy
