During a recent interview on Coast to Coast AM, a caller asked about how to deal with fear. I answered that he should use his spoken words to keep focused on what he desired the outcome to be, instead of dwelling on the fear about a future that hasn’t happened yet. I believe that we are incredibly powerful and wherever we direct our words, thoughts, and emotions will have an effect. We will increase the likelihood of whatever we’re focusing on manifesting in our lives.
On the morning following the interview, I was doing my daily spiritual practice as outlined in my books The Path to Wealth and The Gratitude Formula, and the following scriptures from the bible came to mind;
"Thank you for you coming to Vegas and facilitating our Board Retreat, speaking at our Sunday Service and for your amazing workshop Sunday afternoon. I am so happy to have a “new” spiritual practice that includes me writing which is one of my favorite past times. My heart and mind feel in alignment so I know great things are in store for not only myself but our congregation in 2018. It is with a grateful heart that I share that the first week of November we received a tithe of $30,000 to an additional $800 was given to our Ministry of Prayer Team. We had a week that our service received almost 3x what we normally receive in financial contributions. Our congregation is open and receptive to talking about money. I know that this is a new beginning for our Center. I am so very grateful and look forward to you visiting us again." - Reverend Staci Hylton | Co-Senior Minister | Las Vegas Center for Spiritual Living
It seems that every New Year, people are excited and optimistic about achieving their desires. I hear friends powerfully proclaim, “I want to lose ten pounds” or “I want to get out of debt.” Now that we are 1/3 of the way into 2018, how many resolutions have you achieved? When was the last time you visited your goals? Do you even know where you put your list of resolutions?
Please don’t despair – you’re not alone. Many of us are excited about a new fresh start and then life’s normal challenges and demands take our attention. We can forget to take time for ourselves each morning to revisit our goals and connect to our spiritual source. It can feel like life is choosing our course, rather than us. Here’s some good news – it’s not too late to achieve those goals and resolutions that you had at the beginning of the year and to create the life that you love.
First, commit to using the right words when describing your goals. Our subconscious is designed to help us achieve whatever we put our attention on. To make the statement “I want to lose ten pounds” true, you always have to be wanting to lose. A better way to achieve what you want is to describe the outcome of your goal with gratitude: “I am so grateful that I have a physically fit, trim, toned, and energetic body that is pain-free and easily able to go on walks with my family and friends. We have so much fun together!” With a goal like this, your subconscious and your intuition are going to show up more often, and in more obvious ways, to point you toward steps that you can take to make those statements true.
"May's presence was energizing and beneficial in so many ways and helped our people in building greater momentum in affirming prosperity consciousness in every area of life. The feedback has been incredible! Our people are in action! Momentum is generating excitement and joy both individually and collectively! We are eternally grateful for the gift of our experience with May. Her generous, warm and loving Spirit is impacting the future of our people and our organization. Her divine presence will make a great contribution wherever she shows up on the planet. She’d definitely invited back!" - Reverend Bernette Lee Jones, Senior Minister | One God One Thought Center for Better Living
