Are you aware of what you are thinking about? Did you know that your consciousness creates your reality? What if you are unconscious of what you are thinking? And - what if you realize you are having negative worrisome thoughts and you just can't stop?
The first step in making the shift is to become conscious. Become conscious of the present moment and what you are thinking. Are you doing one thing yet wishing for and doing another? I'd betcha that if you aren't manifesting what you want in your life that you are doing and thinking one way and just have fleeting moments of wishing and wanting this or that.
In order to truly manifest your life the way you want it to be, you may have to throw away some of your current thought patterns and re-establish new ones. Once the new thought patterns are established then you need to get up and take action. Make your life happen. Don't have your life happen to you.
What if today was your last day here on the planet? Would you look back with regrets and a bunch of "would've, could've, should'ves" or "I wish I had . . .?"
Start today and decide that you have the courage to step up and be all that you can be!
On a closing note, what if I had said, "Who am I to write a book on chakras, color, crystals, aromatherapy?" Then my new book wouldn't be coming out this year! The title is Chakra Consciousness: Transform Your Reality Using Crystals, Color, Aromatherapy, and the Power of Positive Thought coming out Fall 2010 with Llewellyn Worldwide.
