You know, when we were “being done” in the womb, everything was as it should be. All we had to do was to “just be.” We were being created by God and filled with pure Love. As we grew and came into this world the life lessons started to begin. The way that we were raised and how we were spoken to built our “false beliefs.” These, I feel, are beliefs that were bestowed upon us by default and by our surroundings. Soon, we adapt and we adopt those beliefs as our own.
Through the years, I personally have overcome a lot of my own trials and tribulations and have had to work consistently with becoming in touch with “my” soul and figure out what beliefs that I choose to take on as my own and which ones I choose to walk away from. That can be tough! However, I have learned that standing “alone” in your beliefs and believing in yourself creates a union with your Source that can give you complete comfort and peace in knowing that you are never truly “Alone.” God lies within us and is always a part of us.
The Bottom Line
So, one of the many things I have done for myself through the years is to learn how to change my thoughts! Some of which I have gained through Dr. Wayne Dyer ” Change Your Thoughts, Change Your Life. Living The Wisdom of the Tao." Some I give attribute to Iyanla Vanzant., “One Day My Soul Opened Up”, and a lot through my Coach For Life school that I went through. It really helped me to start to trust in myself and to go to Spirit and really believe in my nature.
Changing my thoughts was a difficult challenge, but has gotten easier for me through the years. One of the things that I found necessary for me to do was to write a covenant with the Universe. I wanted to put it out there and claim it as mine!
Here is an example of one of my positive convenants. I use an example format from CoachForLife academy. This is something that I would love to see everyone do for themselves and just make it yours! Claim it!
“I support and own that I am the artist of my canvas called “Life”. I agree consciously to create and cooperate with the spirit and universal law. I am surrounded by magnificence and supported in the desires of my heart. All of the wisdom and wonderful opportunities come easily to me and I attract clients with grace.”
This worked for me at the time when I did self-empowerment and skill building sessions with women. The bottom line is that I control my thoughts in life and manifest what it is that I want. Visualize it, own it, and claim it! You deserve it!

MANIFESTING WHAT YOU WANT
Throughout my life I have experienced different types of church; evangelical church, catholic, conservative lutheran, non-denominational, and even a little wiccan. I never knew what it meant to have a real connection with God or Source. Yes, I prayed and I read the verses, but I never found a real connection. To know how it felt to be “touched” by God. Well, after my divorce, I became depressed and scared as to what was going to become of me and mine, and it was through hours of practicing meditation (focusing on deep breathing and clearing my mind) that I was touched by “God, Source, Spirit.” I felt the Spirit and I realized at that moment that all of the answers that I ever needed lied right in side of me! God lives within me and I hear the messages through meditation when I become still and calm. Now, when I feel a storm coming on I am able to get through it a little easier by connecting with my core and breathing until the calm.
All that we desire in life, I feel, is there for the taking. We just need to focus on what it is that we desire and listen for the answers. Answers may come in forms of signs, books, people, newspaper ads, etc. We just need to be in connection with God at all times and trust that we know the way because the Spirit is there to guide us all of the time.
In reading "The Secret", I have learned many words of wisdom and much inspiration! One of the many quotes that I would like to share is about having Faith and embracing it.
"You can have what you want-if you know how to form the mold for it in your own thoughts. There is no dream that may not come true, if you but learn to use the Creative Force working through you. The methods that work for one will work for all. The key to power lies in using what you have…freely, fully…and thus opening wide your channels for a more Creative Force to flow through you." ~Robert Collier
