Ask Yourself – How Do I Want To Feel Today?

Now that the new year has descended upon us, let’s start it off with a question that will change your life ~ how do I want to feel today?  Obviously no one wants to feel sad, depressed, angry, stressed, anxious or unhappy.  Too often we carry yesterday’s worries and woes into the next day until one day we realize we are living the same life over and over again, year after year.  You CAN change this!  You CAN have the life you dream of.  

If you want to create more joy, abundance, and true happiness in your life, ask yourself every day upon waking how you want to feel that day.  When you ask this very powerful question it takes the lead and guides you throughout the day.  It will help you make decisions and choices that will bring you closer to where you want to be.  It will remind you to change your thinking – more positive and less negative.  It will also help shape your future.

I started asking myself this question a few months ago and it really has changed my life.  I have noticed, just to name a few, life flowing easily, problems being resolved, challenges taking a positive turn, better health, little to no stress or anxiety, peace and calm, and even more money in the bank!  I use this question to make decisions, to communicate with others, and to choose what food I am going to eat.  I also use it to guide me in how I react to unwanted life experiences.  Feeling good mentally, spiritually and physically is a priority for me because I know the power that lies in true happiness.

How you feel is a powerful key in creating the life you want.  Feeling good and being truly happy keeps you in tune with your Inner Life, the greater and more powerful part of who you really are.  It changes everything because you are putting out positive energy which will create positive things in your life.  If not feeling good has not taken you to where you want to be, isn’t it time for a change?  

When you use this powerful question upon waking and as often as you need to during the day, you will most certainly notice a difference in how your life plays out.  It will drive you down a different road ~ a more abundant and joyful road.  It will have you holding  hands with true happiness, something we all want in life.  So let me ask you ~  how do you want to feel today and what are you going to do to feel that way?

If true and lasting happiness is what you seek, seek first from within. Live, breathe and be your Inner Life. Quiet your mind, focus solely on the present moment and allow the power of your Inner Life guide you to where you want to be. – Cindy Ortiz

Are Your Beliefs Creating Heartache and Unhappiness

11I was thinking today about how powerful our beliefs can be.  They can control how we perceive other people and the world we live in, influence our future, and affect our every day lives.  Beliefs can take us higher, make us happier, work for us, and keep us in tune with our Inner Life.  But, they can also take us lower, make us unhappy, work against us, and keep us out of tune with our Inner Life.  Obviously it is beneficial to have a positive set of beliefs ~ but what if we don’t.  What if our beliefs are creating heartache and unhappiness. 

22Let’s take for instance a person who doesn’t believe they are worthy of a good life.  A person who believes they are “less than” with no hope in sight.  Can you imagine the struggle he or she must go through each and every day?  Waking up every morning with a feeling of dread for the day to come. Looking in the mirror and feeling nothing good for themselves.  Desperately trying to fit in somewhere, anywhere, seeking the approval of anyone who will give it to them.  Jumping from one relationship to another in an effort to find some sense of self and worthiness.  In time losing the ability to maintain a job, a home, and even worse ~ losing the ability to maintain overall well-being, balance and stability, all the while trying to be happy in a world that is completely painted with unworthiness.  A person who truly believes they are unworthy could have everything they want handed to them on a silver platter and yet find a way to destroy it all. 

Trust Your Gut Instincts

19We tend to forget how powerful our beliefs can be.  Once you think it, and start to believe it, your energy changes.  It changes to the point of then attaching itself to its own likeness. Meaning, you will start attracting what you believe – good or bad. In simple words, a belief is merely a thought you keep thinking, which in time becomes a part of who you choose to be, because you believe it to be true.  Whatever it is you believe, positive or negative, will in fact come true. All beliefs will in fact manifest into and become a part of your life and of you.  Any and all beliefs can be changed, but it is up to you to change them. 

20If you want to know whether or not your beliefs are creating heartache and unhappiness, take some time and think of all the areas of your life in which you feel dissatisfaction.  Now, ask yourself what your beliefs are surrounding this area of your life.  If you are not happy with your weight, do you BELIEVE you are fat and will never lose the weight? If you live pay check to pay check, do you BELIEVE you will never be wealthy?  If you have unhealthy relationships, do you BELIEVE you will never find the right person? If you are unhappy with your job, do you BELIEVE you can’t have the career you desire?  If you spent the last ten years of your life in prison, do you BELIEVE you will never have a normal life?  These are all very important areas of your life to look at and to determine if the cause of your dissatisfaction is from the beliefs you hold about them.  

32Once you determine which beliefs are creating heartache and unhappiness, all you have to do is change them. Begin by thinking the exact opposite even if you don’t feel it to be true.  Think it all through the day. Believe you are losing weight and slender, believe you have the ability to make more money, believe the perfect healthy relationship is right around the corner, believe you can excel in any career you so choose, believe you can have a happy and satisfying life after prison.  I promise you, in due time, if you keep thinking a new belief it will in fact come true.  It has no choice.  The now positive belief will attach itself to its own likeness and manifest right before your very eyes.  All you have to do is to BELIEVE!

If true and lasting happiness is what you seek, seek first from within.  Live, breathe and be your Inner Life.  Quiet your mind, focus solely on the present moment and allow the power of your Inner Life guide you to where you want to be ….

Start With Your Inner Life

185It goes without saying that if you want true and lasting happiness, start from within.  Start with your Inner Life, not your outer life.  True and lasting happiness does not come from what is on the outside, it comes from what is on the inside.  From the core of who you truly are.

When you start with your Inner Life, making how you feel your #1 priority, life will take a turn and so will you.  You will see all the good in the world instead of the bad.  You will notice what is working instead of what isn’t.  Your life will fill with abundance in ways you never thought possible. Your perception of life and how it is supposed to be will change as well, creating clarity, value and excitement towards what is yet to come.

111As you learn and practice your way into true happiness, you will be witness to some of the most magnificent and amazing moments and life experiences you have ever had. Just about everything changes in a manner that brings you peace, well-being, abundance and happiness.  All those worries and woes cease to exist, health issues begin to improve, healing replaces pain, energy increases, positive thinking replaces negative thinking, money starts flowing in, and all those desires you have begin to show themselves! But, it doesn’t stop there.  Reaching this “level” of happiness will create a shift so great that nothing else will matter except for how you feel.  

Being happy and feeling good truly does affect every area of your life.  Nothing can change when you approach life with an unhappy and negative state of mind.  It is time to stop giving so much attention to your outer life and start giving all your attention to your Inner Life. How you feel mentally, emotionally and physically is an indicator of where you are.  When you feel good, you are living in and through your Inner Life.  And when you feel bad, you are living in and through your outer life.   

122To live from your Inner Life is no different from living in the present moment because you are the present moment.  You are here now and that is something that will never change.  Give yourself the time you need to allow the happiness you so deserve.  Starting with your Inner Life will change you and your life forever!

Love & Light,
