What We Give Out, We Get BackWhat we think about ourselves become the truth for us. I believe that everyone, myself

included, is responsible for everything in our lives, the best and the worst. Every thoughtwe think is creating our future. Each one of us creates our experiences by our thoughtsand our feelings. The thoughts we think and the words we speak create our experiences. This is a collapser for Adult We create the situations, and then we give our power away by blaming the other personfor our frustration. No person, no place, and no thing has any power over us, for “we” areonly thinkers in it. When we create peace and harmony and balance in our minds we willfind it in our livesWhich of these statements sounds like you?“People are out to get me.”“Everyone is always helpful.”Each one of these beliefs will create quite different experiences. What we believe aboutourselves and about life becomes true for us.The Universe Totally Supports Us in Every Thought We Choose to Think andBelievePut another way, oursubconscious mind accepts whatever we choose to believe. Theyboth mean that what I believe about myself and about life becomes true for me. What youchoose to think about yourself and about life become true for you. And we haveunlimited choices about what we can think.When we know this, it make sense to chose “Everyone is always helpful,” rather than“People are to get me.”The Universal Power Never Judges or Criticizes UsIt only accepts us at our own value. The it reflects our beliefs in our lives. If I want tobelieve that life is lonely and that nobody loves me, then that is wat I will find in myworld.However, if I am willing to release that belief and to affirm for myself that “Love iseverywhere, and I am loving and lovable,” an to hold on to that new affirmation and torepeat it often, then it will become true for me. Now, loving people will come into mylife, the people already in my life will become more loving to me, and I will find myself easily expressing love to others.Most of Us Have Foolish Ideas about Who We Are and Many, Many Rigid Rulesabout How Life Ought to Be LivedThis is not to condemn us, for each of us is doing the very best we can at this verymoment. If we knew better, if we had more understanding and awareness, then we woulddo it differently. Please don’t put yourself down for being where your are. The very factthat you have found this book and have discovered me means that your ready to make anew, positive change in your life. Acknowledge yourself for this. “Men don’t cry!”“Women can’t handle money!” What limiting ideas to love with.When We Are Very Little, We Learn How to Feel about Ourselves and about Lifeby the Reaction of the Adults Around UsIt is the way we learn what to think about ourselves and about our world. Now, if youlived with people who were very unhappy, frightened, guilty, or angry, then you learned alot of negative things about yourself and about your world.“I never do anything right.” “It’s my fault.” “If I get angry, I’m a bad person.”Beliefs like this create a frustrating life. When We Grow up, We Have a Tendency to Recreate the Emotional Environmentof Our Early Home LifeThis is not good or bad, right or wrong; it is just what we know inside as “home.” Wealso tend to recreate in our personal relationships the relationships we had with ourmothers or with our fathers, or what they had between them. Think how often you havehad a lover or a boss who was “just like” your mother or father.We also treat ourselves the way our parentsd treated us. We scold and punish ourselves inthe same way. You can almost hear the words when you listen. We also love andencourage ourselves in the same way, if we were loved and encouraged as children.“You never do anything right.” “It’s all your fault.” How often have you said this toyourself?“You are wonderful.” “I love you.” How often do you tell yourself this.However, I Would Not Blame Our Parents For ThisThey were doing the best the could with what they had been taught as children. If youwant to understand your parents more, get them to talk about

their own childhood; and if you listen with compassion, you will learn where their fears and rigid patterns comefrom. Those people who “did all that stuff to you” were just as frightened and scares asyour are.I Believe That We Choose Our ParentsEach one of us decides to incarnate upon this planet at a particular point in time andspace. We have chosen come here to learn a particular lesson that will advance us upnour spiritual, evolutionary pathway. We choose our sex, our country, and then we look around for the particular set of parents who will mirror the pattern we are bringing in towork on in this lifetime. Then, when we grow up, we usually point our fingers accusinglyat our parents and whimper, “You did it to me.” But really, we chose them because theywere perfect for what we wanted to work on overcoming.We learn our belief systems as very little children, and then we move through lifecreating experiences to match our beliefs. Look back in your own life and notice howoften you have gone through the same experience. Well, I believe you created thoseexperiences over and over because they mirrored something you believed about yourself.It doesn’t really matter how long we have had a problem, or how big it is, or how life-threatening it is.The point of Power is Always in the Present Moment All the events you have experienced in your lifetime up to this moment have been createdby your thoughts and beliefs you have held in the past. The were created by the thoughtand words you used yesterday, last week, last month, 10, 30, 40, or more years ago,depending on how old you are.However, that is your past. It is over and done with. What is important in this moment iswhat you are choosing to think and believe right now. For those thoughts and words willThis is a collapser for 728x90 create your future. Our point of power is in the present moment and is forming theexperience of tomorrow, next week, next month, next year, and so on.You might notice what thought you are thinking at this moment. Is it negative orpositive? Do you want this thought to be creating your future? Just notice and be aware.The Only Thing We Are Ever Dealing With Is a Thought, and a Thought Can BeChangedNo matter what the problem is, our experiences are just outer effects of inner thoughts.Even self-hatred is only hating a thought you have about yourself. You have a thoughtthat says, “I am a bad person.” This thought produces a feeling, and you buy into thefeeling. And thoughts can be changed. Change the thought, and the feelings must go.This is only to show us where we get many of our beliefs. But let’s not use thisinformation as an excuse to stay stuck in our pain. The past has no power ove us. Itdoesn’t matter how long we have had a negative pattern. The point of power is in thepresent moment. What a wonderful thing to realize! We can begin to be free in thismoment!Believe It or Not, We Do Choose Our Thoughts We may habitually think the same thought over and over so that it does not seem we arechoosing the thought. But we did make the original choice. We can refuse to think certainthoughts. Look how often you have refused to think a positive thought about yourself.Well, you can also refuse think a negative thought about yourself.It seems to me that everyone on this planet whom I know or have worked with issuffering from self-hatred and guilt to one degree or another. The more self-hatred andguilt we have, the less our lives our lives work. The less self-hatred and guilt we have, thebetter our lives work, on all levels.The Innermost Belief for Everyone I Have Worked with Is Always, “I am Not GoodEnough!”We often add to that, “And I don’t do enough,” or “I don’t deserve.” Does this sound likeyou? Often saying or implying or feeling that you “are not good enough”? But for whom?And according to whose standards?If this belief is very strong in you, then how can you have created a loving,
