why you may want to stop asking this question

If you are familiar with the law of attraction, then you already know that affirmations, if used correctly and with other spiritual tools, can help you to manifest your desires. However, did you know that questions can be used as affirmations if traditional affirmations aren’t having the desired affect?
Neither did I! In fact, when I was first introduced to this concept, I nearly laughed. However, this practice transformed my approach to affirmations. Let me give you an example of how this works.
Have you ever said, either out loud or in your head, something like: “What’s wrong with me/this situation in my life?”
Maybe you’ve even noticed that everything that you thought was wrong with you or a specific situation in your life has been reflected back to you. After experiencing this, you may be inclined to think, “Wow. Something must really be wrong with me/this situation.”
That is an example of a negative affirmation, and I’ve definitely been there! After several years of doing that, I finally had enough!I began to ask what was going well in my life.
My experience and outlook began to change. The changes in my life were not immediate. In fact, my perspective shifted gradually, and it definitely took some effort.
Affirmations are definitely not a quick fix or bandaid to cover deep emotional wounds. Now, if I feel like something is going wrong in my life, I take several deep breaths and ask: What is going right? I do this several times until I begin to raise my vibration, and from this state, I can either let the situation go if it is out of my control or take action on the things that I can. Then, everything that is going right in my life is not only reflected back to me, but it is magnified! Isn’t that much more fun than dwelling on all of the perceived wrongness in your life? I dare you to try it!

insight for today

During meditation, I received some guidance that I wanted to share, and I hope it is beneficial to you in some way. Focus on joy and success rather than fear and stress.
Yes, I can already hear some people telling me that this is easier said than done. However, this doesn’t have to be the case. Ask yourself these two questions:
How can I bring more joy into my life? How would my life change if I focused on joy and success for just five minutes each day?
If you don’t feel able to do this right now, that’s okay. Alternatively, you may want to start by asking yourself what is keeping you from allowing more joy and greater success into your life. Remember that you always have a choice when it comes to how you want to experience life. You owe it to yourself to choose a life of joy and success. Yes, it is truthat you may have days when nothing seems to go your way, but you can still choose your reaction to those experiences.

three benefits of asking for and receiving help

In our society, there is this idea that we have to take on as many tasks and obligations as possible, preferably without anyone’s help.
While independence is an important value of mine, it can be taken to extremes, and this could have consequences for us.
First of all, we can become completely overwhelmed if we try to do everything by ourselves. This could decrease our energy and increase our stress levels. Also, when we ask for and receive help from others, we are allowing those people to be of service to us.
The third benefit to asking for and receiving help is that we actually increase our ability to receive abundance and prosperity. This is because we are literally telling the universe that we are open and willing to receive. Doesn’t that make asking for and receiving help much more exciting?

There’s always enough.

In our society, we can find plenty of reasons to fear never having enough. If you follow the media, you hear that there never seems to be enough money, food, employment, and the list continues.
What would you do if there was always enough? Believe it or not, there is enough of everything to go around. There’s always enough love, there’s always enough success, and you don’t have to be extremely wealthy to get it.
We were meant to live in an abundant universe; not in a universe full of lack. In an ever-changing world, how can we tap into that abundance for ourselves?
First, we need to stop thinking in terms of lack. Instead, look around at all of the blessings that you’ve been given. That will create a shift in your energy, and if done consistently, this mindset change will become a habit. Another nice side effect of focusing on your blessings is that you may begin to realize that you are always given exactly what you need when it is needed.
