I have been going through a huge mind-shift in the last couple of months. I don’t knot if it is since the last full moon in March 2008, where a lot of spontaneous healing took place regarding inner child work, if it has to do with the Ph D in metaphysics that I am currently studying, or if it perhaps has to do with having won my local speech contest as part of my dream of becoming a motivational speaker… but the truth is that my mind has shifted from a place where self-doubt would eat away at my courage to do new things, to a place where I can command my thoughts and not pay attention to that debilitating fear whenever I am faced with a new challenge.

The other day my husband came home saying that they were going to rise petrol prices, yet again, and in quite a considerable amount. He then proceeded to go on to say how scientists now know that it is too late to avoid the melt down of the Poles, that all that can be done is to slow it down, that the sea levels will rise and that resources of the Earth will be all but run out within the next 50 years.

I heard him. I know the story, We all know the story.

Thank God we have a little car and at the moment it is not that expensive to fill it up. Yes, we do try to do our best to conserve energy. Yes, we are conscious of recycling, organic food, not wasting resources (especially water), and have only one child as our contribution to this overpopulated world.

If I had been my old self, automatically a feeling of fear and despair would have taken me over and it would have taken me quite a while to overcome it. I would maybe have even shed a few tears and would have had to sit down for a while in order to put myself together emotionally, or have a bath, or go for a walk, or meditate. My mind would have run far away into my daughter’s future and I would have felt so sad for what she might have to endure…

But my new mindset, newly-achieved thought control attitude, kicked in straight away and I told him:
“Yes, this is real. But I believe that we live in a holographic world and that really what you believe comes true. All you will ever have is the power of your thoughts to command in order to create the reality you want to experience. Start training your mind so that all what you have just mentioned may never have to be experienced by us”.

For the first time he stayed quiet. He did hear me and nodded. In the past, his law-and-finance mindset would simply look at the proof and nothing I could say would make him shift this perspective. However, as I said, there has been a lot of inner child healing since the last March full moon and he was ready, this time, to come along to the light and become light himself.

And so when I won the local speech contest in my Toastmasters club, I immediately visualized representing my club in the area contest. Usually, in the past, I would fear the event and would hope and wish to win this second series, especially because I am really focused on becoming a motivational speaker and this could be a great opportunity. Yet, this time, I turned my thinking around and said out loud “I am a winner”; that no matter whatever I do, I am right on track towards my life missions, whether it looks as winning or loosing, success or failure. That, at some level, I have attracted the necessary lesson for my growth.

That my words carry the intention of transmuting negativity into positive energy, therefore, whenever I have an opportunity to speak in public, I win. Dr Wayne W. Dyer says in The Power of Intention that “one individual who lives and vibrates to the energy of optimism and a willingness to be non-judgmental of others will counterbalance the negativity of 90,000 individuals who calibrate at the lower weakening levels”. So, in my mind, I am doing a great service beyond the material and social standards of success. Beyond fame and name, I am spiritually successful by counterbalancing or canceling out the energy of so many individuals who live in fear of scarcity and who believe that “you must take before someone else takes from you”. Just the mentality that is raiding the earth from its resources!?

Two days ago I received a call, out of the blue, from a magazine editor who wanted to offer me a job as a freelance writer and sub-editor. I was over the moon! It was my dream job.
But in the past I had written for this magazine and I had been warned this individual was not very trust-worthy. As it was, although originally the idea was that there were tight deadline requirements, they needed me desperately and I should start working straight away, a few days passed by and I wasn’t contacted about when and where to start such job.

In the past, I would have been a bundle of nerves. I would have despaired and would have been very angry at being let down or this individual not being very professional, or many other like judgments. However this time, I stated to the Universe that I am not that desperate for anything (that’s to say, I don’t have a need for this job, even if it is my dream job, a very powerful place to be!).

In the past, I would have been thinking about it all the time: what if scenarios, right and wrong discussions, the Universe is not being fair on me again self-pity statements, etc. We all do it! Very disempowering thoughts. However, this time, I stated to the Universe that I would not GIVE IT A SECOND THOUGHT! Literally! Since my energy is mine to give or not to give.

Firstly, I turned my old thinking on its head and I stated From now on, I only work with people with integrity.
Secondly, I thought that the Universe was giving me the present of letting me know that my writing is ready for the world, that somebody was prepared to pay me for my services as a writer and sub-editor, therefore I could see myself at this level.

Thirdly, I knew that if this opportunity had been aborted, it meant that at some level it was not in my best interest for spiritual growth, so I told myself that my guides had blocked it from reaching me and that something better was on its way to me. A lesson in acceptance of what it is, as it is. And a lesson in self-acceptance: I stated to myself that I will accept my creation, exactly as it is, even when I don’t understand it or when it doesn’t seem to be a positive one.

And so, one can see, that we are free to choose our thoughts and that our attitude shapes our destiny.

I command the energy of my thoughts is a statement or affirmation that I currently use and will continue to do so until my whole psychic has shifted into this new level of personal power and spiritual understanding. Maybe not very comforting for the ego… but truly very liberating!
