As I sit here on the couch I am thinking about how I have to mail out 2 thank you cards for a box of toddler clothes I received for my son Cash. As my mind begins to go deeper into these thoughts I begin thinking about how it costs about fifty cents for just ONE stamp and if I use two stamps I will have to get more, “just in case” I have to mail something else in the future.
My mind starts to fill up with thoughts of lack as I focus on not having a full time job and a way to afford anymore stamps.
I hear another thought as it comes in telling me, “Do not create realities that do not exist. Focus on what you DO HAVE NOW and know that whatever you need when you need it, will be given to you.”
Just last month I was worrying and stressing myself out about how I was going to buy my son summer clothes. Look at me now, worrying about how I am going to get MORE stamps (even though I have enough RIGHT NOW) after I send these thank you cards to the women who gave me, FOR FREE the clothes I was wanting and stressing over last month.
I do this A LOT. I imagine a future ahead of me full of lack. I focus a lot of my attention on what I do not have and how in the future I will most certainly not have it there either.
Why do I do this?
Why would I sit here NOW and imagine a future WITHOUT ANY STAMPS?
This is because I cannot see in my mind how I am going to “find the way” to get more stamps.
The truth is…
I DON’T HAVE TO KNOW HOW I WILL GET THE STAMPS I JUST HAVE TO BELIEVE THAT I WILL HAVE THEM.
Half the battle is in the believing.
BELIEVING THAT YOU ALREADY HAVE SOMETHING BEFORE YOU HAVE IT.
This is a technique I practice DAILY. Sometimes all day long I am reminding myself that I must believe that whatever I want I already have it.
- Peace of mind
The list goes on and on…
The truth is that all the resources for whatever it is I think I want/need exist within me.
The same goes for YOU.
There is nothing you can’t have do or be that doesn’t exist within you.
There have been so many times in my life where I have thought about the future and worried about not having something. Whether it be stamps, money, time and a laundry list of other things. All this worrying that creates a feeling of stress inside of me. These thoughts ultimately creating feelings that leave me sick and uneasy. BUT soon enough, time passes by and the future moment comes into being and EVERYTHING WORKS ITSELF OUT.
Have I ever worried and stressed yourself out over something and come to find out everything worked out?
If you are someone reading this and saying to yourself, “Not everything works out for me.”
Well I want you to know this…
YOUR OUTCOME IS BASED ON YOUR PERSPECTIVE.
The entire “reality” that you are experiencing right now is based solely on your own thoughts about an event that is happening.
I can see look at not having enough stamps as a bad thing or I can look at it as an opportunity to find a way to get more. My own personal problem that I find a solution to could help millions of other people with their “stamp problems.”
(If you haven’t caught on yet, this post is bigger than just stamps.)
The simple point I want to make is that the future can be full of stamps IF YOU IMAGINE IT TO BE.
The future can be without stamps.
You create the future with the thoughts you are having now.
Don’t focus on the HOW but rather just imagine the end result exactly how you want it to be. This techniques also allows for you to FEEL as though you already have all you need.
Which you do.
The only time IS NOW.
Take this step and Imagine the future you want.
