Get off to a good start.

I’m not talking about a morning romp or eating a nutritional breakfast, although, both can definitely help you get off to a good start.  I’m talking about mentally starting your day on a high note by making a conscious decision to choose good feeling thoughts.  The best time to get your thoughts going in a positive direction is in the morning when you first wake up.  Scarlet O’Hara said, “Tomorrow is another day”, and she was right.  Each day is a new day because any worries or negative thoughts that we may have been thinking stop while we sleep.  We get to wake up fresh from the day before and can choose any thoughts we wish.  

Unfortunately, many of us forget that we can choose our thoughts.  Most of us are lazy and just pick up right where we left off the day before and start thinking about whatever was bothering us.  It’s so easy to let our problems or worries control our thoughts and our mood, but when you are focused upon worries or troubles you only draw more of the same to you.  Let go of whatever was bothering you the day before and concentrate on other aspects of life that feel better to you.  Get your positive momentum going by staying off the topics that cause you to feel negative emotion as long as you can.  

I know, it’s very easy to pick up where you left off the day before or to focus on your problems.  So you’ve really got to make an effort, especially at first, because habits can be hard to break.  But once you begin a new habit of deliberately looking for the positive aspects, appreciating the good in your life, and telling yourself that that’s what you’re going to focus on and notice, you will begin drawing more of that into your experience on a daily basis.  

Abraham-Hicks says that if every morning for the next 30 days, you begin your day by saying: “I intend to see... no matter who I am working with, no matter who I am speaking with, no matter where I am, no matter what I am doing…I intend to see that which I want to see”, you will alter your life experience.  When you deliberately set a positive expectation, you alter your vibration and change your point of attraction to attract circumstances and events that match your mood and intention of feeling good.

When you wake up, take a few minutes to mentally run through your day envisioning it running smoothly and positively interacting with everyone you are going to see.  Imagine yourself arriving on-time and easily gliding through all of your appointments and tasks.  Take a moment to appreciate your bed and waking up healthy and say, "I am happy and I love my life”.  Smile.  It will put you in a better mood because our mind and body are intrinsically connected.

Affirmations for starting the day on a positive track:

“I am happy to be alive, and I love knowing that I am creating my life experience in every moment of every day.”

“I am enjoying mentally mapping out my day.  I see my day running smoothly and effortlessly.”

“I am enjoying this physical life experience and the perfection of the universe in which I live.”

“I am invigorated with life, and I see myself in perfect health and absolute prosperity."

In love and light,
