Sharing Our Best Thoughts
I know I’ve put some good energy into a handful of thoughts that serve very well.
In the holiday spirit, I thought we might share some of our best thoughts with each other.
Here are five of my favorites for anyone who’d like to make them yours as well:
1. I get paid.
Guess who gets paid? Whoever says so. That includes me, because I like getting paid.
I might not know for sure when, or who, or even how much – but that’s not what matters. That’s Universe’s business to sort that out.
All I know is I’m getting paid. It may not be from this thing I’m doing right here, or this person I’m talking to today. But I don’t sweat it, because Universe handles it and I am not attached to how it shows up.
I don’t have to figure out how it all comes together. I don’t hassle folks for payment. And I certainly don’t get stiffed. Because my job is just to do work that I love and then Universe sees that I get paid.
Life is better like that. For me, anyway. Because I like getting paid.
(If you’re someone whose sex life could use the boost instead of your bank account, just replace one letter in that thought and you’re home free.) 😉
2. They treat me like gold.
This thought is a wonderful one to go through life with, whether you’re dealing with the bank, shopping for groceries, dating online, going to the doctor’s, starting a new job, or really just interacting with anyone in the world for any reason …
“They treat me like gold.” You’re gonna like this one if you don’t already use it!
It’s nice to receive excellent service and quality attention. You’ll feel important and cared for and valued everywhere you go. I highly recommend this thought. It’s a gem!
3. I am not afraid.
When a naysayer or a gremlin tells me I should be careful or watch out because things aren’t going to turn out well (and I know it’s just fear speaking rather than guidance), I put that fear vibe in check with these words borrowed from Joan of Arc: “I am not afraid.”
Speaking those words engages a very cool magic. Perhaps because of the woman I imagine behind those words. It might not have the same effect for you, but you’re invited to try them out next time you could use some courage and conviction.
4. I have the best angels.
When I wonder if I’ve exposed myself to some sort of risk (which I know better than to elaborate on – see favorite thought from Nancy below), I remember that even if I screwed something up, my team has my back.
I have the best angels! They make sure everything works out beautifully, so I don’t need to worry. It’s like I incarnated with a divine safety net – it might seem like I’m rolling solo and can really mess things up sometimes, but not really because I have the best angels and they intervene when it counts. They really do rock.
Yours do, too, right?
5. This place is crawling with fabulous men!
This one is only for those interested in a world with fabulous men (or women, if you prefer) in it – and that is an important thing to consider before you engage this particular thought. Use your discretion, please! Because it can be a lot of fabulousness to handle, with so many wonderful men everywhere you turn. But this thought has served me so well over the years that I couldn’t be more pleased to share it with you. 🙂
When friends lamented that all the good ones were taken, and that there were no good men left, I let them have it their way but I chose differently for myself: This place is crawling with fabulous men. Everywhere I turn, there’s another one! Seriously, the men here are amazing!
There are more fabulous men then I have time for. (And I make time for many!) But I can’t even look up while walking on the street without meeting another one. I’ll trip over one just checking the mail. Seriously, this place is crawling with fabulous men.
(And if you get into trouble with this thought, don’t say I didn’t warn you!) 😉
* * * * * * * *
Okay, those are some of my favorite thoughts, but there are a couple others I picked up from fellow creators that you might like as well …
Nancy Barry-Jansson: There is no room for those thoughts at this level.
Nancy was loosely quoting Pharrell (who was coaching a Voice participant on how to handle nerves before taking the stage), but I like her take best. “There is no room for those thoughts at this level.”
There’s no room to worry or doubt or fear. We are too powerful and we know too much to engage that crap. We are conscious creators who know that as we speak, so shall it be. So there is no room for those (negative) thoughts at this level.
Can you feel how that thought squashes insecurities and grows confidence? On a dime, my friend!
We’re playing at a new level and it calls for new skills of being picky about what thoughts we choose to engage. When I think this thought it feels like a bouncer just showed my gremlins the door, and they file out quietly and sheepishly. Magic!
Lisa Hayes: I can accept that.
Whenever I feel myself getting caught in a swirl of bad mojo, and I don’t want to go there, I hear those four magic words in Lisa’s voice: I can accept that.
It instantly pulls the plug on indignation, resentment, fear, criticism, whatever might be rolling. See if it works for you next time your panties are threatening to twist.
Some of you may be wondering how to engage these thoughts. “Is it as simple as thinking it? Do I say it out loud? Is once enough … or more often? Do I have to believe it? How does it work?”
If you’re far away from the vibe of the thought, you will likely benefit from some repetition in order to get the full magic engaged. Others will feel the power of the magic thought on your first try.
Either way, enjoy! And if you’ve got a particular thought that has served you well in life, please share it! 🙂
