Remember last time when I asked who you are?
Well, there are two possible answers: The first, is that you ARE. You are pure energy, you are infinite; you have always existed and always will exist.
The other answer, is you are who you choose to be. Any of the labels you used to describe yourself are labels that have been placed on you, or that you have chosen to accept; but they aren’t YOU, they don’t define you.
They only have what power over you that you give them. So because of that, you can be whomever you want.
You can recreate yourself however you want, at any time.

So that leads to today’s question: what do you want?
Take some time to write down what you want, but BE SPECIFIC!
Don’t say things like “I want to be happy” or, “I want to feel peaceful” because any emotional state is within your power to create at any time.
Outside forces don’t dictate how you feel, how you feel dictates your outside environment!
I don’t want to talk to much about feelings just now, so let’s start with what you want.

And, if you really don’t know what you want, then the easiest thing to do is start with a list of what you DON’T want!
Write down everything in your life that isn’t working right now, and once you have it you can take the opposite of each and make it your ‘do want’ list.
Does that make sense?

For instance, you may say “I don’t want my husband / wife to ignore me”, which can be restated as “I want full and open communication with my husband / wife”.
Understand?

Start with that, and we’ll talk more later.

You are great, and I love you!
And if you love me back, click subscribe over on the right hand side!
