A man goes to buy a hot dog. He gives the vendor $10.00 and gets his hot dog. Then stands there, waiting for his change. The vendor moves on to the next customer. The man speaks up, “Hey! I gave you $10.00. I’m waiting for my change.” Surprised, the vendor turns to the man, “Change? Change comes from within.”
Some say people don’t like change. Put your hand on a hot oven burner. When the pain outweighs the pleasure, you’ll welcome change.
What isn’t working for you in your life? How would you like it to look? What are you willing to do in order to have that (experience, relationship, health, item. . .) Sometimes it’s as simple as stating it out loud, and hearing the words and intention come out of our mouth with conviction. Other times, we realize when we go to state it out loud, that we thought we knew what we wanted, but we can’t formulate it into words (meaning we really don’t know what we want, and there’s work to do.)
It’s not magic dust. This is the foundation of working with your subconscious mind. The subconscious mind works 24/7. If you fall asleep in front of the late night news and television ads, your subconscious mind is taking them in. (Not that you’ll wake up destined to buy a set of Gensu knives for $19.99), but you’ll have slept more soundly without the negative-spin news, and bombarding of messages that you need this because . . . . Turn the TV off and focus upon what IS working in your life before falling asleep.
If you make this a habit, you’ll be grateful for the change you do receive back.
