Acorns From The Healing Tree


"I have learned, in whatever state I am, therewith to be content." ~ St. Paul

Be a Self-fulfilling Prophecy!

I am well, strong and beautiful. Why is this so hard to say?

I want to consider how to live being a self-fulfilling prophesy for good. Instead of "malpracticing against oneself" which people are so fond of doing. To malpractice against oneself is to talk (or think) about yourself in ways that declare what you don't want to be true. People fight for this as a right, as being "realistic". For example, to say things like "beer never agrees with me"...if you say it, you raise the probability of it being or becoming true. Even if you don't really believe it, your subconscious will. Once you say something, it's in the subconscious and it takes a lot to get it out - if one is ever able to. It's like receiving a bad spell, rather than a blessing. Think of your subconscious like a fairy-godmother or godfather. It needs to be trained. It needs to hear you say good stuff that will bless you, instead of a load of negativity.

I hear people with MS literally fighting for their right to be sick or their right to be angry when someone says things will get better. That makes me sad. They are only hurting themselves to think this way. You have a right to be well. Of course you have a right to be negative if you want to, but why?

Somehow it's more in style to take a negative point of view, of oneself or life. It's cool. It's funny. To be self depreciating is hip, somehow. God forbid to be thought a Pollyanna. I have been this way for too long. To reprogram myself I do this:

Each night before I go to sleep, I envision the situation in my day, giving thanks for each event (no matter how bad it was) and you don't have to be realistic here. Next, think about the next day and imagine events turning out wonderfully. Intend that this will be the best day of your life, filled with love and joy, etc. Imagine yourself feeling so happy and grateful.

Next day when you wake up, before doing anything, imagine your positive day again and give thanks for each wonderful event that you will experience. You need to give this your full attention.

That's it. Be brave. It takes a certain amount of bravery to act "as if" but it's far better than to act like you think you're "supposed to" which only serves as a self-fulfilling prophecy. This really works. Please try it.

There's more to this. Thoughts are energy. Just like everything else. When you imagine something negative, your thought actually creates the possibility of that negative option to become the reality. The more you envision the option the more tangible it gets.
We should be very selective with your thoughts... :)
