This week I wanted to do it again. This is what happened. I remember when I was a small child, everywhere that we would go my mom would find money. She found a hundred-dollar bill in a mall parking lot, a twenty in a bathroom, and the list went on and on. I remember thinking to myself, “I never find money.” I have kept this belief with me for as long as I can remember, until today. Three days ago, I was going for a walk, and I decided that I am going to start looking for money. The whole walk, I looked down, in search of my hidden treasure. I did not find anything that first day, but I did not let this discourage me.
Just as I had mentioned before, you cannot lose hope. So this morning I finished my morning walk with my mom, and guess who found a crisp one-dollar bill in the parking lot. You guessed it, this girl! BOOM! O.K. I know what you’re thinking “Wow Brandi, great now you can retire.” It wasn’t the amount of money that I found, it was the fact that I have spent the last thirty-three years on earth with-out finding even a dollar, to breaking the cycle. Now, I am going to be a little more specific with the universe.
Next time you see me out for a stroll, scouring the ground, you should know I will be hunting for hundreds;) How did the week go for all of you? What did you manifest? If you have not tried it yet it is never too late.
Let’s move on, last week we had discussed learning how to control your thoughts. We have so many thoughts running through our head each day. The movie The Secret suggest to not try to control these thoughts, but instead letting yourself remain in a positive place.
I had talked about being grateful earlier, and this is a great way to bring yourself into a positive space. My favorite way is to listen to music and dance. My dance moves at home, would make for some very hilarious You Tube videos. Often times I find myself laughing, at well, myself. Which is also a great way to beat out negativity. Sometimes laughter is the best medication. If you ever catch yourself slipping down into that downward spiral, watch some funny You Tube videos, call a friend that makes you laugh, look around and be grateful for this opportunity to be on this planet.
The sooner you catch yourself the better, but you can be pulled out of the deepest darkest hole. I know. I’ve been down there. The sooner that you realize what a beautiful, amazing, and truly wonderful person you are, the sooner you can cross over and start living the life that you deserve. We were not put on this earth to suffer and be miserable.
We were put on this planet to chase our dreams, laugh out loud, and most importantly to love and to be loved. You are worth it! I am going to stop here for now. I want you to truly think about what an incredible person you are. Make a list. Please don’t focus on the negative traits or experiences that you have had. We are all human, and we have all made mistakes. Don’t let your mistakes be your life story. Leave them in the past where they belong. Lift your chin up, and let’s head into the future, together.
Lots of love,
P.S. Join me next week and we will talk about the thoughts that are already programed into your head, and how to reprogram your brain.
